PSY Releases 8th Album & New Dance Anthem “New Face”

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 9:21pm

Yeah, that’s right, PSY is still fuckin’ making music. And it’s still REALLY good! It really doesn’t matter if you understand Korean or not, the meaning behind his lyrics really shine through in the production and rhythm of his songs.

On his new album 4×2=8, the second track “New Face” is undoubtedly the “Gangnam Style” of the album. Featuring a new custom dance move for the drop and an almost Latin vibe, with horns and acoustic guitar, we could actually see this one making the rounds in clubs.

Probably the most accessible part of the song to EDM fans is a section wherein PSY sings, “Ayy we want some new face!” in the cadence of “Hey, who want’s some pussay?” Someone like Dillon Francis might even sample it in a set, who knows?

Either way, check out the new music video and track below.

Listen to the full 4×2=8 below, as well.

Ghastly Does Future Bass Insanely Well for “We Might Fall” with Matthew Koma

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 9:16pm

Are you scared of heights? Because, you might fall for this track from Ghastly and Matthew Koma

Ghastly, best known for his dubby bass house productions pulls off future bass so damn well in “We Might Fall,” featuring Matthew Koma, the guy behind Zedd’s “Spectrum” and Grammy-winning “Clarity,” and Tiesto’s “Wasted.”

Both have branched out with recent collaborations — Ghastly teamed up with NGHTMRE for the heavy, party track “End of the Night” while Koma co-produced future pop song “Hard to Love” with Louis the Child. And, together, these guys are a match made in collab heaven!

A perfectly constructed, synth-filled soundscape and inspired lyrics bring “We Might Fall” to life, while creative placement of video gamey characteristics and low growls keep it sounding fresher than your average future bass track… Take a listen here!

Deadmau5 Files Countersuit In Legal Battle Over “Meowingtons” Trademark

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 7:49pm

In one of the crazier legal battles we’ve covered on Your EDM, the “Meowingtons” trademark is being fought over by deadmau5, whose cat is named Meowingtons and is itself a particular brand, and meowingtons.com, owned by Emma Bassiri.

The timeline is as follows: Back in December, deadmau5 discovered that Bassiri was using the meowingtons.com site URL and petitioned the US Patent and Trademark Office to revoke her trademark. This stalled in process as Bassiri then sued Deadmau5 in March of this year, citing false claims regarding her business.

“Zimmerman has also made false and unflattering comments about my client. Ms. Bassiri is not currently, and has never been a fan of, or ever met Mr. Zimmerman,” a statement read. “Ms. Bassiri takes offense and vigorously denies Zimmerman’s untrue statements and reckless accusations made against her that have unfairly tarnished her reputation and diluted Meowingtons.com’s customer goodwill.”

Now, the suit has escalated even further, with deadmau5 countersuing Bassiri for trademark infringement, cybersquatting (i.e., the practice of registering names, especially well-known company or brand names, as Internet domains, in the hope of reselling them at a profit) and unfair competition over her site’s name.

“Two months ago, a company that hijacked our clients’ trademark MEOWINGTONS filed a lawsuit against our clients, deadmau5 and his companies, including Prof. Meowingtons Ltd,” attorney Irene Lee tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Despite our clients’ efforts to resolve the matter amicably, the company — which took the very mark as its name: Meowingtons, LLC — has been relentless, now forcing our clients to protect their trademark rights and intellectual property by filing a counterclaim.”

In addition to deadmau5’s countersuit against Bassiri, he’s also suing Scott Hutchison, a former Toronto DJ who manages the cat-themed merchandise website. Deadmau5 states that it’s highly unlikely that a Toronto DJ who managed the site around the time of 2010 was unaware of who deadmau5 (or more importantly, his cat) was.

“[…] a simple Google search of “Meowingtons” at the time would have shown both a link to deadmau5 and his use of MEOWINGTONS in commerce in connection with, at the very least, deadmau5’s music,” states the countersuit. “If Counter-Defendants indeed engaged in diligence prior to adopting the MEOWINGTONS mark, they would have promptly uncovered deadmau5’s use of the mark.”

Fyre Festival Will Not Pay their Employees in Plot Twist Everyone Saw Coming

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 4:41pm

In the debacle that has engulfed the entertainment industry in a vortex of confusion and debauchery, the “professionals” behind Fyre Festival are in the middle of seven different lawsuits tied to the catastrophic event they tried to hold back at the end of April. From leaving guests stranded without transportation on the wild dog-infested Sandals Resort island to the “luxurious accommodations” made from USAID tents for hurricane relief, Fyre Media, its owner Billy McFarland, and co-founder Ja Rule have been facing waves of criticism for what could be the biggest fraudulent music festival fiasco of the past decade. It now appears that company’s employees will not be receiving their payrolls after McFarland himself broke the news in a teleconference.

According to audio exclusively acquired by Vice News, Billy McFarland told employees of Fyre Media that none of their work over the previous two weeks would be compensated. Although, McFarland offered his employees the “opportunity” to stay with the company and continue to work pro bono.

“After conferring with our counsel and all financial people, unfortunately we are not able to proceed with payroll. We’re not firing anyone, we’re just letting you know that there will be no payroll in the short term.” – Billy McFarland

This came as a shock to employees who spent those two weeks sorting out the mishaps by offering customers refunds or the chance to use the money they spent on a ticket for a possible Fyre Festival 2018. This is the same staff that worked on Fyre Media’s app designed for building a repertoire of celebrities and entertainers for ease when booking different talents months before disaster struck with the music festival.

Meanwhile, Ja Rule played a less significant role as a listener during the call and at one point chimed in by saying, “I’m on the phone but I can barely hear you all because of this fucking hum.”

With the lawsuits piling up and the fingers pointing at McFarland and Ja Rule, who knows how the 25-year-old C.E.O. and hip-hop mogul are going to face these serious charges. Now after telling employees they have nothing to pay them for their hard work, more lawsuits should be dropping on their door.

Two Major Labels Reportedly In Discussions To Acquire Spinnin’ Records

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 2:09pm

According to trusted sources of Music Business Worldwide, ownership of indie dance label powerhouse Spinnin’ Records is supposedly up in the air. Sources also revealed that both Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group are currently in contention to acquire the Dutch record label.

Private equity organizations are also said to be in the mix at this point in time but don’t be surprised if one of the two majors above ends up making the acquisition to drive up their current market share.

The listed valuation is supposedly around $100m.

In the past, Sony has had plenty of success in the past both acquiring and partnering up with indie labels in the dance space. In 2013 Sony partnered up with Ultra Music, namely the label and publishing division, naming Ultra founder Patrick Moxey to the position of President, Electronic Music for Sony Music. More recently, Ministry of Sound’s label division was also acquired by Sony Music last August.

Warner also has its own fair share of dance labels and sub-labels in place. Skrillex’s OWSLA label distributions globally through Atlantic Records, one of Warner’s three main labels. Atlantic also owns Big Beat Records, Warner Music’s primary dance label in the United States with both Atlantic and Big Beat home to its fair share of electronic artists as well as another one of Warner’s main labels, Warner Bros. Records, currently home to Kaskade, Gallant and more.

Your EDM Premiere: Tommy Trash & DENM – Dreamer [Armada]

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 1:28pm

There’s so much music coming out today that it’s easy to lose track of some of the brighter gems at the bottom. With Hardwell, Calvin Harris, and Axwell ^ Ingrosso all releasing new music today, it would be forgivable. That being said, you’d be foolish to skip over the new single “Dreamer” from Tommy Trash and DENM.

I’m a real sucker for piano in any house track, so I’m already deeply in love with this one. And then on top of that when you add the vocals from DENM.

“Tommy and I have been writing tons of songs together lately”, DENM says about his recent team-up with Tommy Trash. “We honestly work really well together. So in the midst of writing, he showed me this instrumental and I just started singing something over it. I decided to lay the vocals down and it turned into ‘Dreamer’!”

Check it out below!

Hardwell’s Ultra ID With Austin Mahone Is Finally Out

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 1:08pm

Literally everyone is hopping on the future bass bandwagon. At Ultra Music Festival this year, we saw more main stage DJs than ever before debut new future bass tunes – some were bangers, some sort of missed their mark.

It’s hard to decide which one fits Hardwell’s new tune more. For sure, Austin Mahone’s incredible voice is undeniable, but the song writing on the drop is little more than cookie cutter basic. That being said, the production is still really well done and it’s sure to be a main stage staple if only for the lyrics and hook.

Don’t listen to us, though, listen to “Creatures of the Night” for yourself below. Grab it here if you dig it.

Calvin Harris Drops New Song “Rollin” With Future And Khalid

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 12:57pm

Calvin Harris continues his streak of insane collaborations today with his new release, “Rollin,” featuring the world famous rapper Future and rising star Khalid.

Once again, he somewhat steers away from EDM, going more toward disco and pop but we fucking love it. At the end of the day, you can try and resist bouncing along to this song but you’re going to have a damn hard time at it.

The song name is also pretty apt as the song noticeably rolls melodically from start to finish – picture driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas through the desert on the rolling hills, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Check out “Rollin” below.

Premiere Date Set For Martin Garrix & Carl Cox’ Documentary Film, “What We Started”

Thu, 05/11/2017 - 9:17pm

Every DJ needs a documentary now. With Swedish House Mafia, Steve Aoki, Hardwell and more already under society’s belts, Carl Cox and Martin Garrix, two very different artists, are releasing What We Started.

The film sets out to illuminate the rich history of electronic music, “from its underground inception in the late 1980s in America to the musicians and fans of this genre that relentlessly fought for their rights around the world, both in the dance club and on the streets, to find a safe space to express themselves, to the development of this modern, mainstream revolution that has taken the world by storm.”

Though the film is realistically Garrix’, the juxtaposition with Cox throughout the film aims to give as many viewpoints to the electronic music scene and its history as possible, and with as much reverence as possible.

What We Started will have its premiere at the LA Film Festival, Thursday June 15th.

Your EDM Premiere: Dead Critic – Tombstone

Thu, 05/11/2017 - 1:39pm

The artist known as Dead Critic is about to get a lot more exotic as he goes through a major rebrand. The first step in doing so is releasing this new track, “Tombstone.”

Already, the track title is alluding to his true identity as a “dead critic,” and you can bet your ass there’s a story behind the name. Apparently, he was an actual critic from the UK who traveled to the US to review American movies. However, after giving one movie an unfavorable review, a crazy LA movie producer killed him in cold blood. Now, he haunts theaters and reviews movies as a ghost. Not bad, right?

His identity is sort of Amityville Horror meets Rocky Horror Picture Show, with some meta engagement thrown in for good measure. Musically, he’s touted as a sort of NGHTMRE meets Joyryde entity, blending bass with house in a raw and intense manner. With “Tombstone,” we can definitely hear that vibe, though we’ll also need more to really establish that identity.

Listen to “Tombstone” below.

In the future, you can look forward to some “Bad Review” mixes from Dead Critic, complete with obscure and fun movie quotes and references.

Calvin Harris x Katy Perry… Is This A Collaboration or Revenge?

Thu, 05/11/2017 - 1:17pm

Calvin Harris‘ newly announced forthcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 will feature a crazy amount of mainstream artists including Future, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and more — but his expected collab with Katy Perry is the one raising eyebrows!

There has been plenty of “Bad Blood” between her and the producer’s superstar ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift over the years. After much speculation, Swift called Perry out for being a “mean girl” in an interview with Rolling Stone.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards and say something and walk away, and I would think, Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?” said Swift.

Swift also accused Perry of swiping some of her dancers out from under her, nearly sabotaging a world tour. The pop-star-on-pop-star feud is so obvious that when Harris and Swift were conflicting over her credits on his smash hit “This Is What You Came For” ft. Rihanna, he even threw Perry’s name in the mix…

Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016

I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016

I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016

Ouch.

Kinda makes us wonder if he really digs Katy Perry as an artist, or if this collaboration is just one big “F U” to Taylor Swift. Either way, it will probably sound great!

New Way To Detect MDMA Promises Faster & More Reliable Results

Thu, 05/11/2017 - 1:08pm

When you hear about drug testing, there are two ways that can be taken. The first is testing a person for drugs, usually done by police or a hospital after an overdose or violent outburst (if taken into custody). The second way is an integral part in harm prevention that actually refers to testing the drugs themselves to see if they are what you were told they were when you purchased them.

The second way is what is on focus here, as researchers at the University of Southern Denmark, the Polytechnic University of Valencia, and the CIBER-BBN in Spain have discovered a new way to detect the active ingredient in ecstasy, MDMA, with greater reliability and speed – and it’s right out of science fiction.

The process is explained as such:

“You start with a ball composed of atoms, which is simple to make. The ball is porous and filled with holes, meaning it can be filled up with smaller molecules. In this method, the ball is filled with molecules that are designed to light up if they are released from the holes. If there is no MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine, the active ingredient in ecstasy) within range, the molecules cannot leave the ball. This is because a kind of arm is installed on the exterior of the ball that can open the ball’s pores once it comes into contact with MDMA and keeps the molecules sealed in until that happens. When the ball ‘opens up,’ so to speak, the luminescent molecules stream out and can be detected by a sensor. The ball only opens up once it comes into contact with MDMA, and it can detect even minuscule concentrations of MDMA.”

Jan O. Jeppesen, a chemistry professor at the University of Southern Denmark, said: “It is our impression that a need exists for more reliable, user-friendly and cheaper tests. What makes our method stand out is that it can detect even small traces.”

If this method of testing could be produced at scale, it could mean easier testing for users and, hopefully, fewer avoidable deaths.
