Thomas Sagstad feat. Wildo – Burned (Kaskade Remix)

Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 3:16pm

Kaskade has an uncanny ability to evoke powerful emotions with his productions, and his remix of Sweden’s Thomas Sagtad’s “Burned” does just so. Starting off with light brushes of percussion and piano chords tinged with nostalgia, America’s house posterboy builds an atmospheric, progressive piece around Wildo’s ethereal vocals. Universally pleasing and downright  electrifying, Ryan Raddon follows his tradition of crafting music appropriate for the main stage without the overly-present kick and loud synths prevalent in today’s most popular tracks.

His translation of “Burned” is the first we’ve seen of Kaskade since his ninth album Automatic, whose popular single “Disarm You” became a summer anthem.

Jauz reflects on his encounter with Kaylyn Rose Sommer aboard Mad Decent Boat Party

Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 3:13pm

The electronic music world came to a halt last week after tragic news circulated regarding a young woman on the Mad Decent Boat Party who had reportedly jumped overboard. 24-year-old Kaylyn Rose Sommer was identified as the missing passenger, and after multiple Norwegian Cruise Lines search crews and government coast guards immediately responded to find the South Carolina native, she was never found after a nearly 2-day search.


EDIT: this is a bit long, but I’d appreciate you all taking the time to read through this whole post. Half an hour…

Posted by JAUZ on Friday, November 20, 2015

Los Angeles DJ/producer Jauz paid his respects yesterday, posting a heartfelt note about his experience meeting Kaylyn onboard earlier in the day and remembering his encounter with the “beautiful soul.” He recalls her telling him that she and her now widowed husband got married on last year’s MDBP, and Borgore was one of the “best men” in the bridal party. “This was an experience unlike anything I’ve ever experience and it took the loss of a beautiful soul like Kay’s to remind not just myself but all of us on the boat just exactly how important and precious every moment we have in life really is,” writes Jauz. “Artists and fans alike all bonded in a way I’ve never seen before and I don’t know if we’ll experience again.” Read the full post above.

BREAKING: ISIS Targets Drumcode Party In Paris

Your EDM - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 2:46pm

UPDATE 12:33 PST – An Anonymous Twitter account has stepped forward to refute claims that they’ve started rumors concerning further Paris attacks.

We did not spread any rumors about possible future ISIS attacks, and frankly, we do not know where the rumors come from.

— Anonymous (@YourAnonNews) November 21, 2015

However, Anonymous is not any kind of coherent organization. It is entirely possible that the individuals who leaked the information initially are not in contact with those who run their Twitter account.

For what it’s worth, one of the threats, an alleged attack on a WWE event in Atlanta, is being seriously looked into by the FBI.

The Paris terror attacks earlier this month had far-reaching global implications, but from the dance music side of things, resulted in Live Nation ramping up security measures in upcoming events.

Despite that, it appears that ISIS remains undaunted, as hacker group Anonymous claim that ISIS appears to be planning several more attacks. Earlier this week Anonymous declared war on ISIS and infiltrated several thousand supposed ISIS Twitter accounts. In addition, it appears that they’ve also managed to uncover some of ISIS’s future targets including a Drumcode party in Paris taking place this Sunday with Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, and Joel Mull set to take the stage. While we still don’t have any more information into both ISIS’s plans or Anonymous’ findings, we can only hope that the plans have been foiled with Anonymous stating that they have alerted authorities while France remains in a state of emergency. As of now there remains no official comment from Drumcode or any of the performers.

In a statement to International Business Times, Anonymous claimed that they had already passed proof to MI5, CIA, FBI, and the Australian government but had no plans to release any more information publicity.

“If we share the proof [publicly] everyone will start calling it fake because screenshots can be edited and accounts can be deleted. We have purposely not shared account links publicly because they would be shutdown immediately and then no one would believe the proof.”

Anonymous also revealed several more ISIS targets per their findings.

  • Demonstration by Collectif du droit des femmes (Paris)
  • Cigales Electroniques with Vocodecks, RE-Play & Rawtor at Le Bizen (Paris)
  • Concrete Invites Drumcode: Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Joel Mull at Concrete (Paris)
  • Feast of Christ the King celebrations (Rome/Worldwide)
  • Al-Jihad, One Day Juz (Indonesia)
  • Five Finger Death Punch (Milan)
  • University Pastoral Day (Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Lebanon)

Jimmy Iovine, Head Of Apple Music, Under Fire For Sexist Comment

Your EDM - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 2:20pm

Head of Apple Music Jimmy Iovine is under fire this week for allegedly sexist comments made during an interview on CBS This Morning. In speaking about his goals for music curation on the service, he speaks about how everyone needs a list of music for every situation. The situation that he highlights happens to be girls talking about boys:

I thought of a problem: You know, girls are sitting around, you know, talking about boys, right – or complaining about boys, when they have their heart broken or whatever. And they need music for that, right? So it’s hard to find the right music. Not everybody has, you know, the right list, or knows a DJ or something.

On the show with Iovine was Mary J. Blige, who was asked by Iovine to play a part in a commercial for the service. Blige apparently had no issues with the comments at the time, stating, “[…] that’s what we do, when we get together we listen to music, we talk about life, love, marriage. You know, things like that.”

(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'));

Martin Garrix Releases Episode 4 Of His Personal Show

Your EDM - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 1:11pm

As 2015 starts to wind down, there is no denying that Martin Garrix has had a massive year. From campaigns with Tiësto to sold out shows around the world, Martin Garrix has built off his fame to become one of the youngest global superstars the electronic industry has ever seen.

Fans usually only get to see the show-ready version of Martin Garrix, but the new show started earlier this year, The Martin Garrix Show, takes a behind the scenes look and shows all the work and support that goes into building a successful brand that has no sign of slowing down. Touring managers, lighting and visual technicians and one of the best PR departments make the Martin Garrix team more of a family than anything else. In the video, you also get to see as Martin premieres “Poison” for the first time at Ushuaia Ibiza.

Also see his reaction to getting robbed at 11:00.

Electric Paradise adds Skrillex, Martin Garrix, Hot Since 82, and more for Phase 2 lineup

Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 12:40pm

The Dominican Republic’s highly-anticipated winter electronic music festival, Electric Paradise, produced a stellar mix of live and DJ acts when their lineup initially dropped late last month. Announcing Porter Robinson, Major Lazer, Steve Angello, and more would grace the one-day event for its second year, Electric Paradise apparently hadn’t pulled every trick out of their hat just yet during the first phase of acts.

To truly make 2015 their biggest year yet, the Caribbean-located festival saved some of their ammunition with the Phase 2 lineup for an even greater impact. Skrillex, Martin Garrix, Diplo, Guy Gerber, Hot Since 82 and more will see themselves heading down to Electric Paradise on December 19th and catapult the Dominican Republic festival up there with some of the A-list electronic music festivals in the world. See the full lineup below.

Tickets are on sale now.

Getter previews collaboration with Skrillex live in Philadelphia

Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 12:38pm

Getter got his start in 2012 on Datsik’s Firepower Records and has quickly risen to prominence thanks to his rejuvenated take on bass music. His remix for the Damian Marley powered “Make It Bun Dem” was critical to his widespread success and the California producer’s most recent touch up on Jack Ü’s “Febreze” was an undisputed fan favorite.

In late October, Getter uploaded a quick preview of his first official Skrillex collaboration, kick starting the hype train as is the case with most anything Sonny Moore touches. Since then fans have been clamoring for more and one fan captured the track’s debut at District N9ne in Philadelphia. The snippet is a mere 15-seconds long but the quality is better than your everyday potato and provides a quick peek at what the two bass music veterans have been cooking up in the studio.

Disclosure enlist A-Trak for official remix of ‘Magnets’

Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 12:12pm

Disclosure‘s full-length follow up to Settle has proven to be a contender for record of the year, as the Lawrence brothers continue to dominate the garage and deep house sounds emanating from the UK. One of the album’s evident highlights is the collaboration alongside Lorde, “Magnets,” and now, the tune is ready for a massive remix from none other than A-Trak. Cropping the tune from Caracal and making it his own, A-Trak turns Disclosure’s seductive bedroom-igniter into a boisterous dance floor scorcher.

Taking Lorde’s top-line and winding the vocals into swirling loops, the Fool’s Gold founding father procures another funky piece of dance pop goodness you won’t be able to keep from dancing too. Swapping the original’s sensual, sweeping melodies and tribal drum accompaniment for club-primed chords, A-Trak showcases his mastery of the 128-bpm remix, transforming “Magnets” into an infectious, shuffling new tune.

Thomas Jack Throws A House Party On A Wednesday, Gets Shut Down By Cops

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 10:19pm

One of the better things about graduating from college is moving away from the house party scene, where you generally have a 50/50 chance of getting shut down if it’s during the week. Thomas Jack hadn’t heard about this apparently, as he attempted to throw a house party in LA’s University Park neighborhood.

The party was originally scheduled for Thursday but abruptly moved to Wednesday, which probably contributed to the displeasure from nearby residents. Special guests Matt Dimona and SNBRN were already keeping the party nice and toasty before Thomas Jack was ready to go on at midnight, but LAPD entered the premises and threatened to confiscate equipment at around 11:45, so it had to be shut down.

You can still catch Thomas Jack when he stops by the Fonda Theater on November 25th. Get your tickets here.

Daft Punk, Deadmau5 and More Transformed With Legos In Incredible Stop-Motion Video

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 10:00pm

For a month and a half, French producer TuaN spent his time working with a friend to make elaborate and hilarious stop-motion scenes out of LEGOs for a music video to his original track, “Small Things.” Rather than conventional, slow-motion shots of himself standing in different locations around a city that many artists these days use as music video material, TuaN decided to put in just as much creativity and work as he did for the track itself. The result? A wonderful and inspiring video piece that adds depth and character to an otherwise party-oriented experience.

“I picked LEGOs not only because it’s something small, but also for a personal reason. Back in my childhood, I always wanted to have LEGOs but we didn’t have any money to buy them. Children from all over the world play with LEGOs. They create their own stories. Through creativity and imagination, they make the LEGOs truly come alive. I just wanted to show friendship and love in EDM, and for that purpose I made a LEGO music video with some of my favorite DJs / producers (Afrojack, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, etc.) and heroes (Batman, Darth Vader, etc.).”

In the video, a meteor containing a unique sound crashes to Earth. The boy who finds it decides to share it with the rest of the world, and uploads it to the Internet. Soon, some of EDM’s biggest producers and DJs catch wind of the sound, and share it to their friends and fans. Eventually, they and some of TuaN’s favorite superheroes celebrate at Deadmau5‘s house. Even Daft Punk arrive in a spaceship to join the festivities.

“I’ve always said all things, no matter how small, can become important and big. As such, I decided to produce something simple. Something meant for everyone.”

The song itself is as catchy as the video is enjoyable. To hear more from TuaN and see his other videos, visit Van Recordings’ official website here.

Infographic Describes The Best US Cities For EDM

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 8:42pm

You can take data and manipulate it however you want to show certain results, so it’s no surprise that a group like Galavantier came up with an infographic describing the best US cities for EDM. Results are based off of three sources that are cross references: DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs, DJ Mag’s top 100 clubs, and Forbes’ “Electronic Cash Kings” list.

As such, these results might not reflect your own views, but numbers don’t like. (They can, however, be fickle.)

London Club Bans House Music After Stabbing Incident

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 7:06pm

An incident at London’s The Coronet has left the club house-less.

According London SE1, a 15-person fight broke out involving knives and a “noxious substance” such as pepper spray leading police to declare it a “critical incident.” Police urged the local licensing council to review the club’s license. They wanted a full closure, but the council instead opted to ban “urban/house music” events (“urban” is UK slang for “hip-hop and R&B”).

“It is clear from initial reports that there has been a significant failure in security procedures at this venue,” said police commissioner Ian Clements. The venue will now implement increased security measures for those entering the premises.

“The Coronet recently announced that it is to close down in early 2017 with the building facing demolition as part of the wider redevelopment of Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre.”

AIRWAV – When I’m With U (Thanks For 10k) [Free DL]

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 6:08pm

In celebration of reaching 10,000 Soundcloud followers, producer AIRWAV has uploaded a wonderful, original future bass track titled “When I’m With U (Thanks for 10k).” Using powerful vocal chops and a satisfying lead, the song seems instantly familiar while retaining AIRWAV’s unique production style. It’s currently available for free download here.

The track begins with a rumbling of deep drum strikes and scattered hi hats. Quickly, a high-pitched vocal chop leads us into the drop, where wide layered synths push outward from a simplistic but dynamic rhythm. The vocal cuts continue throughout the break as a full sub bass rattles underneath steady hat hits. A shaker fills the gap of energy, eventually returning to a drop similar to the first. The song ends with a fadeout of warm but melancholy chords.

Fun Fun Fun Fest 10th Anniversary Aftermovie

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 5:41pm

In celebration of their 10th anniversary, Austin-based music festival Fun Fun Fun Fest pulled out all the stops to make the event one of the most spectacular in its history. In addition to the epic lineup including Wu-Tang Clan, Gesaffelstein, Hudson Mohawke and more, the Yellow Stage partnered with All Of It Now for an extra special visual display.

Inside the tent, a 60′ x 80′ planetarium style projection installation brought the ceilings to life with epic shapes, patterns, starscapes and environments. Using Epson’s Powerlite Z Series projectors, the visuals were bright enough to be used during day, creating a canvas size of 5760 x 2400 across 6 outputs of 1920 x 1200.

Watch All Of It Now’s recap video, and check out the latest in visual production.

You Can Now Buy Hardwell & Armin van Buuren Action Figures

Your EDM - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 5:27pm

As 2015 draws to a close, EDM continues to reach new milestones. The genre is bigger than ever, and its principal artists have become as widely recognized as contemporary pop, rock, and hip-hop stars. Perhaps that’s why you can now purchase Hardwell and Armin van Buuren action figures. Yes, you read that correctly; action figures molded after the two Dutch producers went on sale yesterday.

The figures were released in conjunction with the reveal of the music behind Hardwell and Armin’s collaborative track “Off The Hook.” The figures were created using a multi-camera set-up that scanned both producers and 3D printed their busts. The bad news is that both figures miss the mark, with Hardwell stuck in a cross-eyed gaze, while Armin’s face more strongly resembles a five-year-old’s attempted drawing rather than a scanned image. The figures come with tables affixed with their respective logos and some cute little DJ equipment. However, both retail for $53.22, an outrageous price for inferior figures.

Watch the reveal videos for both Hardwell and Armin’s action figures below:
