Check Out Forgotify To Stream Spotify’s Most Obscure Music

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 3:53pm

Last we checked, Spotify had well over 30 million songs available on its platform and with artists distributing their songs on the platform daily (it’s really a very simple process) that number is bound to just keep on growing. As you can probably also imagine, 99% of Spotify’s plays are probably in 0.5% of its catalog or something (just ballparking here), but what of the other 99.5% of Spotify’s catalog – surely they also deserve a chance to be streamed?

Don’t worry, because if that sounding mighty unjust to you Forgotify can fix that problem for you. Forgotify is a platform that allows users to stream some of the most obscure, least-listened to music on Spotify because according to them in 2014, 4 million songs of Spotify’s then 20 million-catalog had actually never been played. Not even once.

While the numbers have probably adjusted a bit over the last few years or so, Forgotify’s core concept remains the same. Best of all? With each and every Forgotify play you give an obscure song, that song will probably never show up again on Forgotify because if the product is working as intended, it’s no longer ‘never been listened to.’

Check out Forgotify here for a real chance to check out some music that nobody’s ever heard and probably never will again after you do!

Nickelback Reveals Their Advice To The Chainsmokers On Dealing With Haters

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 3:01pm

We can all remember the absolutely scathing comparison of The Chainsmokers to Nickelback penned by Matt Miller for Esquire this past January. Probably the scariest part of the comparison was that it touched on a number of very real points and made a solid case for itself. Both Nickelback and The Chainsmokers responded to the critique in good fun with their own parodies of the others’ songs.

Nickelback just appeared on PEOPLE Now for a brief interview, and were asked what advice they had for The Chainsmokers in response to criticism, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger says, “Don’t Google yourself […] If you’re looking for the negativity it’s easy to find.”

The Chainsmokers released their debut album Memories… Do Not Open to extremely mixed reviews. (Read ours here.) And despite a number of negative reviews, they’ve still managed to mostly sell out a massive stadium tour across the country and top the charts.

See what Nickelback had to say below.

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 1:35pm

Slushii is back and stronger than ever (just as he promised he would be)!

His latest Monstercat release — “Luv U Need U” — as part of the label’s Rocket League compilation is a delightful jersey club inspired, bouncy song that’s an utter pick-me-up. Lyrics match the already unbeatable vibes!

All I wanna do is to put my arms around you
And though she’s moving slow, back into place
All I wanna do is to make you stop and love me
How can I be blue when you catch me in this feeling like

Not only is the production superb by industry standards, the lovable track proves Slushii’s versatility as he seamlessly transitions his work from future bass to dubstep, pop to straight up dance music, and everything in between.

“Luv U Need U” is just one of 18 new songs featured on the Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 1 compilation (due out July 5), showcasing a video game that sounds just as great as playing it feels! Listen to the track below and check back of the full soundtrack album soon!

Your EDM Premiere: Matroda – Dat Vibe Pt. 2

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 12:53pm

“Dat Vibe” by Novka was one of my favorite house records of 2015, and I was deeply saddened when the group broke up after their stellar first EP. Now, almost two years later, Matroda has flipped “Dat Vibe” into his own “Part 2”.

Moving away from the bounciness of the original, Matroda sticks to his sound and turns the track a shade darker. Keeping the “South America got dat vibe” vocal phrase the main focus, the track builds around the phrase and moves towards the build – similar to the original. With a more minimalistic break/build, the track quickly builds tension into the drop. Hitting hard in the drop, fans will be delighted with the signature bass-heavy sound of Matroda – intricate rhythms and heavy sounds.

“Dat Vibe Part 2” is reminiscent of the original, but stays true to Matroda’s new found solo sound. Stream the track through Good Enuff below!

Atlanta-based DJ and producer FVCKDIVMONDS recently dropped his debut two-track bass house EP, Give Em’ Hell on the MMXV Artist Collective.

Tomorrowland Finally Drops Trailer For 2017 Festival

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 12:50pm

While it’s been weeks since the Tomorrowland lineup was officially revealed, it was only just today that Tomorrowland revealed its official festival trailer.

The theme for the festival, Amicorum Spectaculum, is based around a circus-esque theme, fraught with creative character designs and plenty of fun rides and activities. The trailer serves to possibly tease some of the various stage designs, but overall gives a general idea of the “vibe” of the festival.

Tomorrowland arrives this July for two weekends, 21-23 and 28-30.

Your EDM Premiere: Gabriela’s “Trippin’ In A Spacesuit” Is A Perfect Debut

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 10:39am

Nashville is starting to get a reputation for producing some amazing talent in the electronic realm. With many songwriters and producers finding their home in the Music City, Nashville has now evolved into quite a hub for electronic music. 

With all the new and upcoming talent arriving to this city, one artist especially stands out, and her name is Gabriela. I’m so excited to premiere her debut single, “Trippin’ In A Spacesuit”, a day early for you to hear because this is a tune you’ll find yourself playing over and over again. 

The song is just as great as the name. Her airy voice captures your ears immediately as the beautiful ambiance seemingly keeps you floating in this ethereal bliss the entire four minutes. “Trippin’ In A Spacesuit” is a perfect start for Gabriela and I am very excited to hear what’s next to come for this young artist.

Seven Lions & Echos Finally Release “Cold Skin” Remix Bundle

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 5:41am

Last year, Seven Lions Echos‘ “Cold Skin” came to Monstercat as the absolutely stunning collaboration that nobody expected. This week, the song finally got an official remix package, stocked with six fresh interpretations from both veteran and amateur producers alike.

Whether you’re a long-time basshead, an avid Monstercat fan, or just a casual listener looking for some fresh content, this remix bundle has something for everyone. Right off the bat, listeners will most likely notice two outstanding, recognizable remixers, those being Koven and MitiS, who pump even more emotion into the track with their signature dubstep and future bass styles, respectively.

Though Koven has seen a few releases on the Vancouver indie label throughout the last year, most Monstercat fans will recognize Stonebank and Mr FijiWiji as the standout resident remixers. Once again, these two deliver just as expected, staying mostly within their primary styles.

The only two biggest surprises on the EP actually come from the two fresh faces that were picked, V!RTU and INTERCOM. While V!RTU has gained some serious steam for his distinct brand of indie dance, this remix takes a more chilled approach, combining future bass and melodic dubstep. INTERCOM – on the other hand – is a never-before-heard-of producer that completely knocked his remix out of the park. Juxtaposing cinematic elements with a gritty, glitchy drop, this one is arguably the most unique of the whole bundle.

Which remix is your favorite? Listen to the whole EP for yourself and let us know down in the comment section below!

QUIX x Young Sidechain ft. Gucci Mane – “Rat Traps” is Here to Give You Stank Face [LISTEN]

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 10:07pm

Trap worlds collide — between bass music producer QUIX, newcomer Young Sidechain, and rap icon Gucci Mane in “Rat Traps!”

Deep horns, fat bass, an anxious build, and Gucci Mane’s signature stylings lay down the foundation for the trapped out anthem, but when the drop takes over “Rat Traps” — it’s all over. The track quickly goes from dirty to straight up disgusting, and will give you automatic “stank face” to match.

Gucci goes in…

I’m in the cockpit / Tryna stay focused
And I got bug spray for all you cockroaches
I’m icy as a bitch / How could you not notice
And I got rat traps for all you fucking rodents

“Rat Traps” is available for free if you jump through a relatively easy hoop: just add QUIX to your EDC schedule and send him the screenshot (directions in SoundCloud description here).

With the abundance trap music on the scene, this one holds its ground as a true, raw gem… Listen here!

Katharsis Festival Uses Images Of Victims Falling From Twin Towers For Promo Video

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 10:07pm

Katharsis, an annual festival in the Netherlands from promoter Reaktor Events, is under considerable fire for inappropriate images used in a promo video for this year’s festival.

The video, among other things, included depictions of victims of the 9/11 terror attacks falling from the Twin Towers. Unsurprisingly, the festival immediately faced backlash for its attempt to stir controversy. The video has since been removed by Facebook.

In a statement made to their Facebook page this morning, Katharsis explains that its motivation was to embody the Greek concept of “catharsis,” the festival’s namesake.

“Our videos sometimes deal with controversial themes with the intention to spark thought, emotion, debate and perspective, but explicitly never to support, mock or justify violence in any way,” they wrote.

Many other less offensive images (but still wholly offensive on a grand scale) of the terror attacks could have been used, but instead chose to depict imminent loss of life. It was a seriously misguided attempt to “express social criticism” and the festival is paying the price.

Read their full statement below.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

We would like to clarify our motivations behind the video that was posted yesterday. Catharsis, as an ancient Greek…

Pendulum, Destroid & Live: KJ Sawka Taking The Dance & Drumming Communities By Storm [Tour Announcement]

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 5:07pm

Everyone knows the sounds of Pendulum and the raw “savage” energy of Destroid but few have witnessed the mastermind behind the drumming for both supergroups. KJ Sawka, a famed dubstep artist, and core band member of both groups, has announced on the heels of the Lost Lands (Excisions 3 Day Festival) Destroid announcement phase one of what seems to be a brand new, never before seen, drum spectacle. All we know is if its half as amazing as his recent set of drum videos, or a sliver of the energy of a Pendulum or Destroid set then we are watching the origins of what will become a true disruptive force in 2018.

Here is phase one of what KJ hints to be a full on Fall Drumming Tour.

“I look to move and bend the grasps of reality, pushing my show further and further, most of my fans know me with my octapad DJ Setup, this new, Full On Live show, is going to be something no one has seen, fusing the best of my Pendulum & Destroid skills into a KJ focused hour of music, synths, and drums.”

Greater Than & AWAL Give Kayzo’s “This Time” an Insane Flip

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 4:51pm

There’s no questioning it, Kayzo‘s “This Time” is currently his biggest solo single to date. The track has amassed over 2 million plays across YouTube, SoundCloud & Spotify, and has seen major support at festivals worldwide throughout 2017 by DJs like Crankdat, k?d and Jauz.

Whether the song needed a fixing or not is debatable, but producers left and right have been trying their hand at giving it a twist, but only to a certain degree of success. However, two North American up-and-comers – Greater Than and AWAL – may have just broken that streak.

This particular bootleg doesn’t just give “This Time” a stylistic treatment, it completely flips the song on its head. The bootleg retains the original’s integrity in large part with its epic stabs and heavy percussion, but also gives the track a much greater level of zaniness, swapping back and forth between bouncy & energetic hardcore drops and grittier brostep segments. Simply said, GT & AWAL’s take on “This Time” is a bass music hybrid of epic proportions; you don’t wanna miss this.

Excision Drops Lineup For First Ever Festival, “Lost Lands”

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 4:00pm

Easily one of the most-anticipated festivals of the year has just dropped its lineup and WOW! Think of a bass DJ and they’re on this lineup, not to mention a lot of special performances from the likes of Excision b2b Datsik (for their second billed performance of the year) as well as the epic return of Destroid, the collaborative project between Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka. Excision’s first ever festival is going to be one for the history books!

Also on the lineup you’ll find Zeds Dead, Funtcase, Illenium, Liquid Stranger, and Snails. The festival will be held in Legend Valley in Thorneville, Ohio from Sept 29-Oct 1.

As you would expect from a festival thrown by Excision, there will be a massive amount of 500,000 watts of bass, plus the PARADOX will be at the main stage all weekend. And then there’s the camping to consider, which as a first-time festival is always a gamble. But with a strong team behind the project we’re sure that it will strike off with minimal complications.

Check out the full lineup below! Presale is live now at www.lostlandsfestival.com.

Noisia Reveals They Have An Album’s Worth of Unreleased Skrillex Demos [DETAILS]

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 2:29pm

In an impromptu Twitter Q&A, Noisia revealed they have a lot of unreleased music with Skrillex!

It’s bittersweet news for both fans of the drum and bass trio and the dubstep legend because while they’re sitting on an album’s worth of collaborative demos, there’s no guarantee we’ll ever get to hear the finished products. However we can bet that they’ll continue working closely together, and can hope for an official release.

Their relationship goes back before the release of My Name Is Skrillex, an EP that changed the game forever. Over the years, Skrillex has looked up to Noisia as masters of “pure art” and mentors for his own craft… Quoting from a 2016 NEST HQ interview Skrillex said, “Nick from Noisia was one of the first guys who made me feel like the stuff I was making wasn’t just demo quality. He was like, ‘No, that’s good! That’s you. It doesn’t need anything else.’”

Check out the recent Twitter exchange below, as Noisia talks the unfinished collaborations and defends Skrillex’s more mainstream work with artists like Justin Bieber.

Kinda bored at home after a really nice weekend, on a laptop with Twitter. Will answer any interesting question for a limited amount of time

— NOISIΛ (@Noisia_nl) June 11, 2017

Yes, multiple, we kinda have an album of very unfinished sonny moore demos

— NOISIΛ (@Noisia_nl) June 11, 2017

Man that stuff sonny is doing now is sooooo much better than that early stuff. Might not be your taste but it's very catchy
