Ed Sheeran Reveals Future Work With Skrillex and Martin Garrix

Your EDM - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 9:43am

What a time to be alive! Just when you think collaborations could not be more surprising, electronic dance music has reached for artists from all across the music scene and brought them together. From pop collaborations such as those between Ariana Grande and Zedd to the more obscure and recent work between artists like Benny Benassi and Serj Tankian, the music industry continues to expand in sound as singers, instrumentalists, and producers share their ideas and styles in music.

Roughly two months ago, we had posted a story of Ed Sheeran, Sonny Moore, Diplo, and Usher photographed in a studio together. Now, news surfaces that Mr. Sheeran has been in cahoots with both Skrillex and Martin Garrix on separate tracks. In a recent interview, he went into detail about the progress of both tracks and their creative directions. He states, “The Skrillex is more new jack swing, but the Martin Garrix is my first step into the EDM world. It’s not hardcore EDM; it’s chilled-out, mellow.” Hopefully, the mystery behind these tracks will be lifted soon as they are each close to completion. Until then, stay tuned and let us know what your thoughts are on the news of Ed Sheeran shifting gears into EDM.

Your EDM Premiere: Les Sins – Bother [Company Records]

Your EDM - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 8:59am

 

Toro Y Moi‘s Chaz Bundick first surfaced under his dance project, Les Sins, in 2010 with the release of his double sided single entitled, ‘Lina’. Since his debut, Les Sins has simmered on the back burner, remaining hot to the touch with an assortment of retrofitted, dance-friendly records being released alongside a sinuous stream of zoned-out productions from his main project.

Bundick’s latest release, ‘Bother’, establishes a steady groove with a chopped vocal hook and a smattering of percussive elements. It’s dynamic and unrelenting, even when Bundick radically chops away at all he so cleverly constructs; ambitiously reducing his meticulously crafted arrangement to its foundation. ‘Bother’, the first single from Les Sins’ debut album, ‘Michael’, is just a taste of what is to come, so make sure to stream the record below and pre-order your copy here. Enjoy.

Interview: Sultan + Ned Shepard

Your EDM - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 3:06am

You recently released a very inspirational collaboration with The Boxer Rebellion titled “Keep Moving”. What was it like working with the band?

It was a great experience for us because we are such fans of the band and such fans of the original song. We reached out to them because we thought the song could work in a club format without losing any of the emotion. They never do remixes of their songs, but they agreed and they ended up loving what we did which was really exciting for us because we spent a lot of time on it and really made an effort to make sure none of the original emotion was lost. Sometimes balancing emotion and dancefloor appeal on a record is tricky, but in this case we were really happy with the result and excited that they were so supportive and stoked to work with us too!

Your recent remix of Coldplays song “A Sky Full Of Stars” is making alot of noise. Did you have a specific vision while putting together the remix?

It’s a similar situation with Coldplay as far as making sure to keep the emotion. Coldplay is definitely one of our favorite bands and their influence is all over our music. The reason we love them so much is really because their ability to clearly express emotional content in a genuine way is just tremendous, both musically and vocally. Chris Martin is an incredible songwriter, so being able to work with his vocals was such a treat. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted to do when we started but we knew the chords had to bring out the emotion of the vocal. We loved some of the instrumental parts so we ended up elaborating on some of those riffs and it got done in just a few days because we were on a tight deadline- but sometimes that forces you to make strong decisions and in the case it worked out!

Tell us about your new collaboration with Dillon Francis “When We Were Young”

Kam from The Chain Gang of 1974, was introduced to us by a mutual friend. We heard his band’s music and fell in love with it. He came over for a session and we wrote the demo for When We Were Young. We were all excited about it because we knew we had something special in the works. While we were starting to work on the direction of the production, Dillon heard the demo and loved it and hit us up about collaborating on it. We were really curious to see where he would go because he makes so many different styles of music. We sent him the parts and he came up with some amazing stuff and took the song in a more electro pop direction which we loved. After a bunch of online back and forth, we finally got together with him in the studio and finalized it in LA and it was definitely one of the most fun studio sessions we’ve ever had. He’s such a funny guy but also incredibly sweet and down to earth. So many people in our scene take things and themselves very seriously, and he just doesn’t take himself seriously which makes it all incredibly fun- I think we were kind of missing that energy so it was really refreshing. He’s a super talented dude and we actually have a couple other things in the pipeline with him. His album is awesome and is definitely gonna be huge so we’re really excited for it!

Do your travels have any effect on what inspires your music?

Absolutely. We meet so many people and see so many amazing things that they always play a part. The fact that we get to share those experiences with each other makes it easier to translate into our music. A lot of times, we will get inspired by seeing another DJ play at a festival or walking around the streets of another country and seeing what other people are interested in gets you inspired. Traveling is always inspirational because it always reminds you that the world is a vast place, and there are so many possibilities in this life.

Can we expect anymore releases from you this year?

Yes! We have a song with a big indie band that we can’t talk about just yet but it will come out this year and we’re very excited about it. We have some more edits and remixes coming out on our label Harem Records. And we’re just starting to write new songs that continue our attempts to blur the lines between indie/pop and dance music so we’re excited to share that with everyone!

Aphex Twin Announces SYRO Album on the Deep Web

Your EDM - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 12:26am

The deep web is something that is both mysterious and intriguing to me. I can say the same for Aphex Twin, although his music is no mystery; but the man has a special sense about him. After having a blimp flown through the sky in London, the producer made the announcement of his new album, SYRO, on the deep web. Posted to a .onion website, the contents included a text revealing the album title and tracklist, along with the artwork. It has been a long time coming for material from Aphex Twin, whose last album, Drukqs, came out in 2001. With all the groundbreaking things that have happened since, his return should send some of the biggest shockwaves the scene has seen. Ever.

Tracklist:

01. minipops 67 (source field mix)
02. XMAS_Eve10 (thanaton3 mix)
03. produk 29
04. 4 bit 9d epi+e+6
05. 180db_
06. CIRCLONT6A (syrobonkus mix)
07. fz pseudotimestrech+e+3
08. CIRCLONT14 (shrymoming mix)
09. syro u473t8+e (piezoluminescence mix)

Deep House to Be Next Big Thing in the EDM Scene; Ultra Music President Speaks Out

Your EDM - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 12:09am

After a brief stint of being the “festival bangers” from stage to stage, big room EDM tracks’ days are becoming numbered.

The all-too-familiar formulaic buildups and the all-too-obvious big — er, generic – drops have seem to run their course. Thankfully, artists like Zhu, Tchami, and, of course, Disclosure, are paving the way for a new kind of sound to enter the scene. Well, not quite new, but a revitalization of an old sound, rather. Whether you characterize it as deep house or UK garage, this soulful, fresher twist on house music is hitting clubs (and radio, in some cases) by storm.

In an interview with Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy, president-founder of Ultra Music Patrick Moxey spoke out on the evolving EDM scene: “The great thing about electronic music is every time people want to put it in a box, it changes… Anytime one part of it becomes commercialized, new parts start to reinvent themselves. It’s in a constant process of refreshment.”

Grammy-winning house music producer Todd Edwards’s recent post on Thump further supports Moxey’s statement. Edwards was responding to a controversial Thump article that criticized Disclosure and their influence on the scene, but his comment is still pertinent to the larger picture of this evolving dance music scene when he says, “Disclosure has added to the legacy of garage and house, breathing new life into it. This newer house and UKG [UK Garage] has not only grabbed the attention of a younger generation both in the UK and America, but has given the opportunity for its earlier origins to be discovered and appreciated.”

As seasoned artists such as Dusky and Duke Dumont may be getting more exposure and appreciation due to this changing landscape, fresh, young talents such as Kygo and Klingande are also rising up to the scene. “You could pinch yourself because the song could have been made 30 years ago,” says Moxey. “Some of these 19-year-olds are making records that sound like they were made before they were born.” 

It’s about time that we finally hear something different in our podcasts, live shows and festivals. The fresh emergence of deep house will be a welcome change.

Imagine Music Festival: Official Trailer + Interview W/ Founder

Your EDM - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 11:20pm

As Imagine Music Festival draws closer and closer, the hype continues to grow. Now with an official teaser trailer and announced time-slots, we were also able to talk with Glenn Goodhand, CEO & Founder of IRIS Promotions who’s the driving force behind IMF. Here’s what he had to say about how Imagine came to be and where it’s headed!

Exclusive Interview

- To start with, what inspired you to found Imagine Music Festival?

We have been promoting EDM events since the late 90s and I have been enjoying EDM since the mid 80′s. I believe I was born to entertain, not as talent, but as an organizer. I get great joy and personal fulfillment from helping provide people with fond memories, smiles, laughter, friendships, and love. My wife, Madeleine, shared this feeling of robust fulfillment and it proved to be the impetus behind creating the Imagine Festival. The site of everyone having a great time at our events has brought many tears of joy to our eyes and lifted our hearts. We take pride in our devotion to customer service and quality, making sure each individual has the very best time possible while they are with us. Our goal is to provide a safe environment where everyone can escape their worries, even if only for a short while, and have the very best times of their lives. Creating loving friendships and beautiful memories that will last a life time. Imagine will provide a 360 degree immersive magical experience with the highest quality talent, sound, lighting, art installations, cirque performers, and many special unique surprises. We set the stage but rely on all of the kind souls of Imagine, aka #imaginers, to create a one of a kind, unforgettable, and undeniable energy that cannot be described in words but most certainly felt in a language of vibes echoing through the hearts and minds of the masses.

- The lineup is quite bass-heavy with Destroid and Adventure Club headlining; what brought about the creation of such a unique lineup?

The lineup was a culmination of many great minds putting in endless hours to try to create a lineup of some of the highest skilled performers in the world. This was especially difficult with all of the other great festivals happening around the world and more especially around the Atlanta area. Before we selected an artist, each was individually scrutinized, to determine if it was a good fit and would flow properly with the overall groove of the event. We give much deserved credit to other promoters and clubs that have booked these artists in the past; opening our eyes and ears to such great musicians. We are truly proud of the resulting lineup and we are already feeling the challenge of how we can possibly top it in years to follow. We are up to the challenge!

- What else separates Imagine Festival from the rest?

There are so many festivals and large gatherings that are truly inspirational and so well done. I must first give endless thanks and much respect to all of those that have paved the way for this dream to come to fruition and all of those producers and promoters that have lead by great example. So many people have and continue to inspire us and show us love and support, driving us to work tirelessly to create the very best experience possible for everyone to enjoy. Some distinctions we would highlight are

1. Imagine is in the heart of downtown Atlanta
2. we have created a exceptional value for a reasonably priced ticket price
3. we are 18+
4. we have transformed an already beautiful park into something breathtaking
5. we put tremendous thought into creating an intelligent lineup we think everyone will appreciate
6. we have brought in the very best performers to create a full 360 degree, full sensory experience
7. we are a privately owned and operated event. Everything you see, hear, and feel will be the concepts, visions, ideas, thoughts, and imaginations, of truly gifted individuals. These all come together on display and for engagement on a canvas we call the Imagine Music Festival. We invite everyone to come experience Imagine Festival, to determine for themselves why they had such a unforgettable experience at Imagine and what they think sets us a part from all the other great festivals throughout the world.

ENTER TO WIN TWO VIP TICKETS HERE

- Do you have a few acts you are particularly excited to see on a personal level?

Our team has worked so hard and I could not be more proud of the lineup we have been able to create for Imagine. I have tried to think about a few that really stand out, but this lineup is such a dream come true, it would be impossible for me to only select a few. We highly encourage everyone to get to the festival grounds as early as possible each day because the talent from the very first bass drop all the way until they make us turn off the music will be absolutely phenomenal. Luckily we have our official after parties, located within walking distance of the site, to continue on with the festivities.

- Provided Imagine is as successful as it’s shaping up to be what does the future of the festival look like? Will this become a fixture in the South-East electronic music scene?

We certainly hope and are confident people will really feel a difference at Imagine and share their experiences with others. We have been blessed with an opportunity to provide a wonderful experience to many, and we take this opportunity very seriously. We will work tirelessly to provide the most pleasurable experience possible, for every person, from beginning to end. We look forward to bringing Imagine to other markets within the United States, and eventually, Global. We have short, middle, and long term plans in place to grow the festival and the brand while maintaining the strictest quality control guidelines and maintaining complete creative control of the brand.

We are certainly not the biggest festival in the world, but we will be providing the very highest quality production in the world, aligned with some of the very best talent in the world, to create an absolutely magical Labor Day Weekend for everyone to enjoy. We love you and it shows!

Your EDM - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 10:00pm

LA based producers DARRIGO & Aaron Marcus have teamed up with Pilot Touhil to bring the electro thrash tune I’ll Wait For You.

Despite what the sentimental title suggests, this tune is fairly aggressive. The distorted synths have the tube warmth of a guitar, while the rhythm gives it a somewhat strummed feel.

Combining a nice bit of musicality with the male vocals makes this piece one to check out for sure. Grab your free download and peep the track below!

Poncho Warwick – Tell You What (Aaron Jackson Remix) [Audiophile]

Your EDM - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 6:56pm

Deep house very rarely piques my interest quite like this track just did. Aaron Jackson has a talent that could push him very far in his career and this remix is probably only a little taste of what he’s really capable of.

The track is supremely dark and seedy, groovy and bouncy, and so very very danceable. It’s the perfect late-night track for when the crowd needs a little bit of a pick-me-up. All of the little touches in it are quite amazing, too — such as the small chimes, the pitch oscillations on the bassline, and subtle synth chords that add to the dark atmosphere of the track.

Your EDM Premiere: LIGHTS – Siberia (Ownglow Remix) [Free Download]

Your EDM - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 6:17pm

Epic drum ‘n’ bass is a thing. Or, at least, Ownglow just made it one. Incredible vocals ride alongside magnifecently constructed melodies that play out perfectly in your head.

The drop comes from no where and immediately the dance feels are apparent in this monster remix. The 17 year old bass maestro’s first release under Ownglow illuminates a bright and promising career for the youngster, as the production quality is nothing short of impressive.

This kid and Rootkit absolutely need to collaborate and combine their creative minds and production prowess into a dnb track of goliath proportions.

Research Declares RAVE Act Has Failed To Protect Dance Music Fans

Your EDM - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 5:58pm

It has long been known to pretty much everyone that the war on drugs is failing. It’s not keeping drugs out of the hands of kids or out of our schools, it’s not keeping people out of jail but in fact keeping them in longer than most violent aggressors, and most importantly, it specifically targets those who need the most help.

For years and years, drugs have been commonly associated with raves. And why shouldn’t they have been? With bros wearing shirts saying “WHERE’S MOLLY” and attendees at EDC asking about their friend Lucy, it’s no surprise that people think what they do. However, it is high time to stop punishing those who make the choice to do drugs, and rather embrace the fact that it will happen and attempt to help them in the process.

There seems to be something that we’ve all forgotten, or perhaps, never took the time to know about. That is the Reducing Americans’ Vulnerability to Ecstasy (RAVE) Act of 2003. Many people took issue with the act, most specifically, “many were concerned that these expansive definitions might permit the police to arrest and charge concert promoters under this law so long as glow sticks and bottled water were present.” This has had a direct consequence on festivals, promoters, and large EDM events that do not want to be associated with drugs so as to avoid liability. It is one of the hidden reasons we do not see testing stations, water stations, chill out areas and adequate medical staffing at every festival — it actively shields producers and promoters from liability.

According to edmtunes

Over the weekend, an award-winning sociologist by the name of Tammy L Anderson, PhD., said everything we were all already thinking about with regards to the RAVE Act. She presented research at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association entitled “Molly Deaths, and Why the Drug War Won’t Clean Up Rave Culture,” and it couldn’t be more correct. In case you’re not sure what I’m talking about, this will also explain why Diplo recently banned “kandi” at Mad Decent parties. The short answer is, once it’s your party, you’re liable if kids do drugs at your rave.

On the other hand, Canada is not subject to these antiquated laws and has taken the opportunity to go above and beyond the call of duty this year at Shambhala Music Festival. The festival does not even permit alcohol on the grounds, but they are cognizant of the fact that drugs will still make it in. This year, they had a station where you could take your pills/drugs/powders and have them tested to truly know if you got what you paid for. The great majority of the time, an individual will not take a drug that wasn’t what they thought they were buying, and that in the end saves lives. As Shaun Wilson, Shambhala’s security manager, said, “We’re not here to crash parties. We’re here to help people party safe.”
