Torro Torro x SmallTown DJ’s – House Shake + Torro Torro Interview

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 9:26pm

Eight months ago with the release of their Aylen collab “Designed 4 U”, Torro Torro spoke with NEST HQ, hinting about more upcoming collaborations. Of course the promise of Torro Torro and Grandtheft/Autoerotique was a wicked one, but I was particularly interested in how they might work with Smalltown DJs, who are almost exclusively known for their house beats. The time has finally come for us to get a glimpse of that killer collab.

“House Shake” released on Brillz’s Twonk imprint this last Friday, along with remixes from JVST SAY YES, Lil Texas and the bossman himself. Make sure your subwoofer is turned up to get some serious twerk action going. The bass is big enough that your booty will be bouncing even without any physical effort. You can check it out here.

We got a chance to catch up with Torro Torro and ask the boys a few questions.

Can you give us a bit of history about Torro Torro? How did you two meet?

We kicked things off in Toronto, seems like ages ago. But what a time to be alive (ha). The dance scene in Toronto was picking up a ton of momentum, based on the success of a number of electro, dubstep and house acts (in the late 2000s).  We had some solid experience producing and DJing, so we set out to define our own contribution to the movement.

Your music has evolved a lot since you first started. What’s the inspiration there, and where do you see Torro Torro headed?

We’ve always worked to be forward looking with our productions, never be satisfied doing the same thing over and over again. We’re inspired by our surroundings, new production techniques, and occasionally SoundCloud. TT is like a bull that’s hard to kill, it keeps raising its head. Those that know us, know that we drop releases pretty sporadically. Our method is to always stay producing and drop TT material when it comes naturally.

What lead to the collaboration with Smalltown DJs?

These guys are ‘legends’ and all around awesome dudes. They have been hugely supportive of TT and ton of electronic music acts over the years by booking acts at their clubs in Canada. They have a great sense of music and are quickly becoming amazing producers. We got together with them in LA on a mission to make a fire club record. This one really came together! Shout to our dawg Zyme from SF who laced the whisper voice for us.

 

How did you get involved with Twonk?

We’ve known Brillz and the Twonk team for a number of years now through shows and track releases. They’ve got a great vibe and are always pushing hot club music, House Shake was a perfect fit. We’re super thankful for the whole Twonk Team’s work on this release. House Shake was blessed with remixes from Brillz and My Bad, JVST SAY YES, Lil Texas and Rrotik.

Which remix is your favorite?

Honestly could not single one out, they are all massive. Each one has its own place.

Brillz and My Bad’s is that heavy Twonk you know and love from them. JYS laces us with a dope Bass House version. Lil Texas takes us straight to the club, in his tight Jersey version. And last but not least, definitely one we would play in a late night TT set, Rrotik goes dark and deep.

We’re super proud of this track and all of the remixes on the pack. These will keep you moving all summer long. Big thanks to everyone that’s sharing it! Be sure to hit up all of the talented people involved in this release. Grab the full release now on Twonk. -TT

Party Thieves & JayKode – Poppy Seeds (feat. Neon Hitch) [Lowly Palace]

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 8:01pm

Party Thieves and JayKode are undoubtedly two of trap’s rising stars, infusing elements of future bass and dubstep into their already hype productions. Teaming up together for the second time, these two create magic with “Poppy Seeds.”

The production on its own is almost flawless, but incorporate vocals from Neon Hitch in the mix and now you have a hit. “Poppy Seeds” plays on suspense and climaxes throughout the release, creating peaks and valleys that sort of match the body’s natural sway when dancing.

“Poppy Seeds” is out now via Lowly Palace. Check it out below.

Forbes Lists The Chainsmokers Among Highest-Paid Celebrities Of 2017

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 7:02pm

Forbes just released this year’s list of Highest-Paid celebrities, which “ranks the top-earning front-of-camera entertainers on the planet by pretax income from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017.”

Diddy topped the list, at $130 million, thanks in large part to his equity in Sean John clothing as well as his continued partnership with Ciroc. You can expect a large amount of musicians on the list this year, in addition to your “typical” silver screen celebrities and even some authors (J.K. Rowling comes in at #3).

Included on this year’s list are The Chainsmokers at #65 with $38 million. Their payday comes from a heavy touring schedule as well as multiple multi-platinum singles, such as “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”

The world’s 100 highest-paid celebrities pulled in $5.15 billion in total — more than the combined GDP of Belize, Liberia and Gambia. See the full list here.

Listen To A Few Live Sets From This Year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 6:21pm

Bonnaroo this year had an awesome lineup of EDM alongside its typical rock, hip hop and indie dance offerings, including sets from Marshmello, Big Gigantic and Yellow Claw. Many of the sets this weekend were caught on the live stream from the festival; and while many sets are lost to the ether, a select few were captured and can still be streamed in full (or nearly).

There are still bound to be more sets uploaded in the coming days, but for now you can listen to sets from Marshmello, NGHTMRE, Getter and Herobust below. Someone even managed to record Rezz’s entire set from the stream! (And yes, she’s fine with it; she even shared it via her artist page.)

(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'));

Calvin Harris Teases Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott & More Collabs With Album Pre-order Video

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 4:30pm

Calvin Harris’ new direction marks a significant departure from his past EDM hits, aligning closely with the radio-friendly, hip-hop sound dominating mainstream radio at the moment. His new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, includes already released collaborations with Frank Ocean and Migos, Future and Khalid and Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande and Young Thug, but much of the album has yet to be heard…until now.

Harris shared the Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 preorder link to his social media accounts, and also included a great teaser video that previews a few new collaborations courtesy of a skilled scarlet macaw. Among those collaborations heard are tracks with Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott, Kehlani, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and more. The sampling of the album so far indicates a very R&B, hip-hop fusion direction for Harris, a 180 degree turn from his EDM-rooted history. While a full tracklist is not yet available, the pre-order link confirms the album will span ten tracks.

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 releases on June 30. Watch the album preview teaser 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'));

Two Drug Dealers Busted with Over $30,000 Worth of Drugs at Bonnaroo 2017

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 2:43pm

Two drug dealers were busted at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN over the weekend, with more than $30,000 worth of marijuana, molly, mushrooms, ecstasy and ketamine.

According to a report by The Tennessean, cops were tipped off by festival goers smoking weed and obtained a search warrant for a vehicle containing the following…

  • two pounds of marijuana packed in 58 bags
  • more than a pound of mushrooms packed in 138 bags
  • 11 pills of molly
  • 11 ecstasy pills
  • one bag with a half-gram of Ketamine

Daniel W. Loper and Ryan Alpeus Wiggins were both were charged with two counts each of manufacturing, delivering, selling and possession of controlled substances. More than a dozen arrests were made over the four-day festival.

This comes after another out-of-the-ordinary arrest at the music festival, when a man was caught selling fake drugs and claiming he was “doing God’s work.” Yeah, you can’t do that either.

ATLiens Get Called Out For Ripping A Track From Soundcloud

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 2:42pm

If someone doesn’t explicitly give you permission to play out an unreleased track… don’t do it. It’s really not that hard.

Bassnectar collaborators ATLiens found themselves embroiled in some drama this weekend when they were called out by EPROM and Zeke Beats for playing out an unreleased collab called “Humanoid 2.0.”

Hey @ATLiensOfficial where did you get Humanoid 2.0? I sure didn't give it to you

— ᏋᎮᏒᏫᎷ (@eprombeats) June 10, 2017

right? Neither did I..

— ZEKE TWEETS (@zeke_beats) June 10, 2017

At first, ATLiens responded with some pretty crass rebuttals, such as “You should probably check your Soundcloud [messages] better” and “Not our fault if somebody wants to start beef because we found a cool song on Soundcloud and decided to play it out and show support.” Both tweets have since been deleted. (You can see screenshots here.)

What got lost in the shuffle was that ATLiens initially hit up Zeke Beats for the track and never received a response, and EPROM flat out said no. So they decided to just… rip it from Soundcloud?

ATLiens refutes the claim that Eprom asked them not to play it, but the use of the word “specifically” in their response makes it look like they were trying to play with some sort of loophole.

neither one of you ever specifically asked us not to play it. but how about you dm us like an adult and we can resolve this

— ATLiens (@ATLiensOfficial) June 10, 2017

The crux of the matter is this: ATLiens ripped an unreleased song from Soundcloud in a mix set, and won’t apologize to the creators of the track for the act.

The lesson to be learned is this: don’t play others’ unreleased tracks without explicit permission. Just because someone allegedly doesn’t “specifically” ask you not to play it, doesn’t mean they said “go ahead” either.

Hopefully “Humanoid 2.0” is out soon, because it seems like lots of people really love it. But we’ll respect the artists and wait for the official stream.

Odesza Announce New 16-track album ‘A Moment Apart’ out September 8

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 12:05pm

Fans have been clamoring for some news about Odesza’s album for some time now, and finally that curtain has dropped. Odesza have annouced their next album out September 8, a 16-track release entitled A Moment Apart.

A Moment Apart was made to represent Odesza’s growth, delivering a more mature sound through weighted atmospheres, shimmering synth lines and familiar feelings of nostalgia, optimism and hope. The album’s featured guests include Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor, and RY X, creating an eclectic mix that showcases Odesza’s dynamic range.

Album closer “Corners Of The Earth” featuring RY X, released today, builds upon a chilling vocal performance by RY X through thunderous low-end and swirling synthesizers, horns and choir that grow and expand throughout the song. The track coalesces into a cinematic, emotional climax in a pure Odesza style. Also released today, “Meridian” is a trademark Odesza song, filled with rhythmic, pulsating drums and powerful vocals in a bed of lush synths and percussive punch. “Meridian” has a touch more grit and represents a subtle tone shift for the duo as reflected in the cover art designed by Mills and Michelle Gadeken.

These two new tracks join the already-released singles “Late Night” and “Line Of Sight.” Pre-order the album here.

They have also announced a massive stadium tour in support of the album. Dates and locations below.

Designer Drugs & The Hiding – Lost Kids (feat. Stewart Winchester)

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 10:34am

Designer Drugs and The Hiding have joined forces once again to deliver a high energy house banger! Featuring the vocals of a familiar collaborator, Stewart Winchester, the mix of trap, moombahton, and heavy hitting house make for a perfect combination for the festival season.

The track begins with bass drones and a melody that sinks its teeth in. Winchester’s vocals ring through as more instrumentation is introduced. The song takes a dark turn as the bass drones come in once again with minor key inflections. It isn’t long before we are thrust into a massive drop with a dirty synth and huge kicks.

Check out the tune below:

Katy Perry Reveals Diplo Was The Worst Lover Out of Her Last Three Boyfriends

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 9:04pm

Katy Perry has been all over the news in the last few days with her non-stop four-day live stream which has seen a whirlwind of celebrity interviewers and guests drop into her home as she promotes her brand new album Witness. 

One of those guests was James Corden, host of The Late Late Show with James Corden, who played Truth or Dare with Katy prodding her to reveal which of her last three boyfriends – Diplo, John Mayer, and Orlando Bloom – was the best in bed.

Unfortunately, for both Diplo and Orlando, Katy revealed that John Mayer was number one. That said, the other guys shouldn’t feel too bad as Katy also added that “they’re all amazing lovers and I would have sex with all of them when I get out of this place!”

Axwell Λ Ingrosso Talk New EP, Industry Trends, The Chainsmokers & More In Revealing 30-Min Interview [WATCH]

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 7:46pm

Axwell Λ Ingrosso, one of the most beloved acts in EDM, recently sat down for a revealing 30-minute interview with Zach Sang and no topic was off limits!

The electronic duo talked their More Than You Know EP, tour life, work flow, constantly reinventing their sound, Swedish House Mafia, changes in the music industry, how they complete each other, misconceptions about “pressing play,” overrated Vegas residencies, and so much more. They also gave their honest opinions on artists like Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and even The Chainsmokers.

A Λ I’s brand new four-track EP and the interview are a lot a like — both cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. Axwell broke down the leading single “Renegade” and More Than You Know EP like so:

“It’s four diverse songs from us that really gives you a little bit of everything. For example, the first one is called ‘How Do You Feel Right Now,’ which is a song that we’ve played a lot in our live shows. Just a great party starter. ‘Renegade’ is like a LA Friday afternoon in your car. Just chilling and going to a party. Then eventually, at that said party, you’ll be listening to the song called ‘More Than You Know,’ which is full on festival — let’s go! Then eventually, at that same party where you’ve stayed a little bit too long and the sun is coming up, you’ll listen to this song called ‘Dawn’ which is like a sort-of progressive electronic symphony.”

The in-depth, high energy interview is both fun and insightful, and it’s awesome to see how down-to-earth they are while on top of their game! Watch below, and listen to Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s More Than You Know EP here!

Deadmau5 Might Have “Less Mainstreamy” Releases Coming Under Testpilot Alias

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 7:18pm

Deadmau5 may be releasing even more new music soon, under his techno moniker Testpilot!

While Joel Zimmerman mentioned the main focus of that project is to deliver music from other artists in his own way and allow him to play “DJ type gigs,” in the same breath he mentioned his “less mainstreamy shit” has potential to be officially released under the Testpilot alias.

What is important to know about the Testpilot thing, is that it's more about the artists and their music i play. Im just delivering it.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) June 6, 2017

any plans to release tracks under the testpilot alias?

— Sash (@sash1803) June 6, 2017

probably. maybe some of my more less mainstreamy shit will likely end up under the testpilot moniker. https://t.co/rOF4q44wap

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) June 6, 2017

Although rain delays and water damage at Movement Detroit 2017 made his headlining set a little “complicated,” Testpilot did not falter. Overall, it was an amazing display of his keenness to the genre and ability to deliver a raw, pumping set, with little Deadmau5 to be heard.

Listen to his full set and/or watch the first 30 minutes of his Movement Detroit set here!

Pandora Raises $480m from SiriusXM & Offloads Ticketfly to Eventbrite For $200m

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 7:02pm

It’s been sink or swim for Pandora these past few months and it looks like they’re ‘out there like Michael Phelps’ with two savvy business moves that give them a strong injection of capital to work with. Firstly, they received a strong investment of $480million from satellite radio company Sirius XM and then offloaded prized ticketing asset to Ticketfly to Eventbrite for $200 million bringing in close to $700million in capital.

SiriusXM’s investment came at a cost of Pandora selling a 16% ownership share to their streaming competitors. Though the proposed SiriusXM buyout of Pandora never happened, Sirius will nevertheless be pleased to make some headway into the internet radio service. SiriusXM has also been given three spots on Pandora’s 9-man board including the role of Chairman.

SiriusXM CEO Jim Meyer called it a “unique opportunity” for the company to “create value for its stockholders by investing in the leader in the ad-supported digital radio business, a space where SiriusXM does not play today.”

With regards to Ticketfly, Pandora managed to offload the ticketing company which it had purchased Q32015 for $450 million. While that acquisition never really panned out for them, new parent company Eventbrite is looking to establish a bigger foothold in the event marketing and ticketing industry. Eventbrite and Pandora will also enter into a partnership per the terms of sale.

Per Julia Hartz, CEO of Eventbrite, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and we see immense alignment and opportunity with this union, especially as we continue to expand Eventbrite’s global footprint in music. Together with Ticketfly, we will focus our collective energy on further developing our unparalleled solution and superior services for indie music venues and promoters around the world.”

Though Pandora investors will definitely be boosted by the flurry of financial moves over the last 24 hours or so, it remains to be seen how Pandora looks to fight back against Spotify and Apple Music over the coming few years.

A Couple Humped On A Flight To Ibiza and… Go Them I Guess [VIDEO]

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 3:27pm

Partying in Ibiza is next level when it comes to dance music culture, but one kinky couple took their trip over from Manchester to the rave haven to the extreme by literally humping in front of everyone.

Sorry for being so blatant about it, but once you see the video below you’ll see what we’re talking about!

Luckily, the passengers around them were good sports and let them do their X-rated PDA thing, while also capturing the shocking moment via Snapchat so we can all experience the ride. These guys need to be awarded with some sort of high mile club medal of honor because this act takes some serious dedication, zero fucks, and the ability to “romp” above all elements and potential jet lag.

We’re just amazed. Keep doing you — random, crazy, beautiful couple! We hope this real love lasts forever!

Axwell Λ Ingrosso Forced to Cancel Spring Awakening Performance Due to Vandalization and Robbery

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 2:43pm

Spring Awakening Music Festival 2017 in Chicago is in full swing but there’s one, very important thing missing — Axwell Λ Ingrosso.

As someone attending the festival this weekend, I was personally bummed out by the cancellation, but it’s even more upsetting to hear the reason why… Sebastian Ingrosso’s car was not only vandalized, but his laptop and passport were stolen before they even had a chance to make it to the States.

Axwell used Spring Awakening as an outlet to get the message out:

Per @Axwell /\ @Ingrosso

The festival itself was quick to recognize the situation and jumped on offering refunds to those with passes to the duo’s afterparty.

This would have been the first opportunity for Axwell Λ Ingrosso to play out their brand new and stunning More Than You Know EP in America and we definitely feel for them. We wish them both the best luck in getting this sorted and making their way back to United States soon for EDC Las Vegas.

Ticket holders for Axwell Λ Ingrosso afterparty at Prysm will be automatically refunded.
