Spotify Updates Family Plan At A Cheaper Price, Reveals Earned Revenue & Losses

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 10:53pm

On Monday, music streaming service Spotify made several upgrades to their seldom discussed Family Plan. Before today, primary account holders could pay an additional $4.99 per secondary account for up to four family members after securing their regular $10 a month subscription. Now, by paying a flat monthly rate of $14.99, users can add up to six additional family members with no added cost.

Before today, primary account holders could pay an additional $4.99 per secondary account for up to four family members after securing their regular $10 a month subscription. Now, by paying a flat monthly rate of $14.99, users can add up to six additional family members with no added cost.

Those who use the new and improved Family Plan will receive one bill a month, as opposed to the more complicated payment systems from before. For account holders that previously had Spotify subscriptions, saved playlists and other data will carry over after switching to the new system.

In other news, The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the Spotify’s 2015 fiscal year, revealing some not so surprising truths about the company’s standing in the marketplace. According to the information, Spotify’s net losses (€173.1 million) slightly increased last year due to higher royalty payments despite nearly doubling their overall revenue (€1.95 billion ). Both advertising and paid subscription revenues increased during 2015.

“We face competition from players with substantial resources at their disposal. The group intends to continue making significant investments in developing new products.” Spotify directors Martin Lorentzon and Par-Jorgen Parson

In a filing issued on Monday, the service claims that it will be seeing “substantial revenues” as their international reach broadens.

Stream Flume’s new album, ‘Skin,’ in full

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 10:31pm

Flume’s meteoric rise to the top of the electronic music realm remains one of the brighter success stories in dance music. A leading force in the future bass scene, Harley Streten grew to be a household name following the release of his debut self-titled album in November 2012, which contained timeless records including “Holdin On” and “Sleepless.”

Fast-forward to nearly four years later, and Streten is readying himself for the release of his sophomore studio album, Skin. Though fans knew of its existence for almost a year, Flume only began teasing the forthcoming effort in late 2015, with the album’s title revealed shortly after the New Year.

Skin began to slow-drip with the premiere of “Never Be Like You,” while “I Remember,” “Wall Fuck” and “Say It” quickly followed suit. With an announcement regarding a major North American tour sandwiched in between, Flume has officially returned. Today, May 25, Flume took to Facebook to live stream the first play of his album.

Stream the full album below, and pre-order it on iTunes here.

Dance Music Industry Worth $7.1 Billion, IMS Reports

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 9:34pm

The 2016 International Music Summit in Ibiza began Wednesday, giving industry members and fans of dance music a detailed look at the inner workings of the business. In a lengthy report published by the summit, the exact growth of the industry was measured and stacked up against jumps from previous years. This time, the results are truly impressive.

According to the data, the industry currently sits at a $7.1 billion value, 60% more than it was just three years ago. Despite the record-setting number, however, its growth rate slowed significantly to 3.5%. The future outlook is still positive, reads the chart, as it’s driven by constant growth in the streaming market, new global regions like Asia and South America opening up to the market, and the maturity of the USA market. However, the slow-down in growth is definitely something to account for when looking towards the future of dance and electronic music in general as it continues to merge into the pop market.

EDM still has a small market share in the scope of the entire music industry, and we can only hope it’s good enough to continue the snowball that has been this remarkable genre.

Check out the chart below, and stay tuned for more updates on data received from the IMS.

Brennen Grey – Vested Interest EP

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 9:09pm

Sinister new producer Brennen Grey has risen from the shadows to present his debut EP, Vested Interest. With the backing of LA-based underground imprint Imune Records, it’s a compelling new release, wielding two compositions of dark, cinematic techno.

The EP presents a rare duality in modern techno, blending the heavy, brooding groove of minimal tech with grand melodic motifs that carry one out from the darkness into more open-ended celestial territories. Both tracks bear an overtly menacing edge, yet feature a distinct evolution over time, slowing morphing into a new beast altogether over their six to seven minute span.

All in all, it’s a worthy debut from a promising new artist to watch in the underground space. Catch Brennen Grey opening up the Drumcode Stage at EDC Las Vegas in June.

Brennen Grey’s Vested Interest EP is available on Imune Records here.

J.Phlip, Louis the Child, Le Youth and more share their favorite summer mixes ahead of What The Festival

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 7:41pm

90 miles east of Portland, in the pastoral setting of Wolf Run Ranch, What the Festival has been building a reputable name for itself in the North American festival landscape. Now coming into its 5th year with a lineup that includes the likes of Thievery Corporation, Bonobo, Claude VonStroke and more — not to mention Funktion-One sound on all its stages — WTF is gearing up for what looks to be its most promising edition yet.

Ahead of the festival, J.Phlip, Le Youth, Louis the Child, Jerry Folk, and M!NT have shared their favorite summertime mixes with us, with each artist providing commentary on their selection.

What The Festival takes place from June 17-20 at Wolf Run Ranch, Dufur, Oregon. Tickets are available here.

J.Phlip

Cottam – Causes Of Colour Mix

“I can’t remember how I found this mix, but I have kept it as a “go to” mix for the past 5 years!  He produces some really fun music too. SUNNY vibes of pitched down house with a tinge of disco. Such a SMOOTH mix, I’m a fan!”

Le Youth

Le Youth – Splash House Sessions #3

“This is my Splash House mix, I made it for the summer pool parties. It’s full of R&B/pop throwbacks and some of my own jams. It exemplifies everything my new label, Locals Only, is all about – good, sexy music. See you at the Pool Party stage!”

Louis The Child

Major Lazer – Robot Heart – Sunset Burning Man 2015

“This mix is full of feel good reggae that’s perfect for any summer vibe. The track selection is amazing, and Walshy Fire’s MCing keeps you singing along. Can’t go wrong.”

Jerry Folk

HNNY – Music For Listening Vol. 9

“I think one of my favorites mixes of all time is from HNNY’s “Music For Listening” series. A lot of his music is sample based, and I feel like in this mix series he brings out the root of what his music inspired by. I’ve honestly listened to this mix probably 40 times through the whole thing the past years. If u ever have anxiety, woken up after a rough night out or just need to find peace this mix will cure it, it does for me at least. Not what you would expect, but if you enjoy good music, trust me you will like this.”

M!NT

Mercy – SSMS#09

“This is one of my favorite mixes from the last year because of its diversity, and in my opinion is a perfect blend of different genres that showcases how diverse What The Festival musically is. Even though I don’t know Mercy personally, after first hearing this mix I felt like we value the relationship between electronic music and hip-hop in a similar way. The mix begins with some classic jams that remind me of the carefree summer hustle in Brooklyn & New York where I now live, and then switches right into an eclectic variety of dub of UK garage cuts, all with a slight R&B influence. To me the overall vibe of this mix encapsulates the feeling of summer and the nostalgia that comes with it that reminds you of those times spent with old friends on summer break when there are barely as many worries as adulthood. Mercy is definitely a selector and one of the more innovative and underrated producers coming up right now, don’t sleep on the kid.”

Top 5 DJs To See At Secret Solstice Festival

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 7:27pm

As May draws to a close, my anxiousness for Secret Solstice fest swells within me. From the Glacier & Volcano side parties to the eclectic lineup, it’s an event that I can confidently say will change my life.

Coming from a mostly mainstream EDM palate, there’s no doubt in my mind that this lineup will open me up to a plethora of new genres and artists from all around the world. However, for this piece, my aim is to provide other attendees with a definitive guide to the must-see DJs set to perform in Iceland come mid-June.

While electronic act Die Antwoord are sure to amaze, they’re an obvious pick and therefore won’t be included in this list. Anyway, enough with the frivolities. Let’s begin!

Don’t forget to check out Secret Solstice’s full lineup & get tickets here!

5. Troyboi

The London-based protege of legendary hip/hop producer TimbalandTroyboi is one of the most popular trap producers in the dance music scene today. With an official remix for EDM’s biggest duo, Jack Ü, as well as a huge collab with Diplo himself, there’s no doubt that the 28-year-old Troyboi is one of the most talked about DJs in bass music today.

Check out his hour-long mix for Diplo & Friends below for a taste of what’s to come this June in Iceland.

4. Art Department

Toronto duo-turned-solo act Art Department is set to headline Secret Solstice this year, and there’s no question as to why. Having previously ranked in DJ Mag’s top 10 and being behind one of the most timeless house anthems of all time from 2010, “Without You,” Art Department continues to be one of the most influential names in dance music to this day.

Come June, timeless beats and some of the most skillful and experienced hands behind the decks will combine for one of the most memorable performances of the weekend. Check out on of Art Department’s recent mixes below.

3. Skream

Dubstep pioneer turned tech house connoisseur, Skream is one of the most potent artists on Secret Solstice 2016’s lineup. Known for being vocal, especially about “EDM coming to an end,” we prefer to let the music do the talking, and there’s no doubt that Skream puts on some of the most interesting DJ sets around (and has for years). Check out his most recent mix from March below for a taste of what’s to come.

2. Goldie

Talk about a legend… Goldie has been active in the electronic dance music scene for 25 years now and shows no signs of slowing down. The man pioneered the use of time-stretching, something most modern producers probably presume has been around since the dawn of time, and the legacy that Goldie carries on his shoulders as a result is absolutely massive. I expect the stage to be packed for his set, and it’s one you absolutely shouldn’t miss. But, don’t take my word for it…

1. Jamie Jones

You knew it was coming! As one of the most popular DJs in the world and one of the biggest headliners enlisted by Secret Solstice, Jamie Jones is my #1 DJ to see this coming June. The house maestro has seemingly played every major event around the globe and for good reason. He sticks to more high-paced house jams than the likes of Skream and Art Department, and the accompanying energy draws a crowd – a big one.

I recommend you get there early for this performance… and come find me on the dance floor!

UZ Drops Six-Track EP On New Record Label [Stream]

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 7:27pm

Record label Quality Goods Records was born in April of 2016 to a proud father, trap producer UZ, and quickly said its first word in the form of a 20-minute minimix chock full of IDs. Today, we’re finally seeing the infant label take its first steps with the release of UZ’s powerful, six-track Magellan EP – and boy, is it something.

The EP is saturated with collaborations and features from some of the most acclaimed up and comers in the bass music circuit. BIG MAKK, ATLiens, BeazyTymes and vocalist The Rej3ctz all make an appearance, lending their own brands of unique production style and flow to the deadly and high octane trap creations.

It begins with the EP’s title track “Magellan,” a wonky trap heater saturated with warped bell hits and abrasive percussion, before verging into the relentless and stuttering “Ash It” with BeazyTymes. “Yallah” features an enticing, Eastern scale and jangling percussive strikes that make up the main melody. Next, “Xanny Man” comes as the EP’s only straightforward hip hop track, featuring vocals from The Rej3ctz. Finally, ATLiens helps create a dark and twisted, nearly dubstep-influenced heater called “Cavern” before UZ ends things with BIG MAKK in a more laidback and simplified swayer, “Spank.”

Stream Flume’s Entire “Skin” Album Right Now

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 7:24pm

Flume just streamed his entire new album on Facebook and on first listen, Skin is absolutely masterful. The entire record is crafted in a way that you’ll have to listen more than once, but right away Flume’s ability as a producer and visionary is clear as day.

If you’d like to skip the intro, the album begins around 8:45, and lasts almost precisely an hour. You’ll get to hear collabs with Tove Lo, Little Dragon, AlunaGeorge, and the final track of the album, his collab with Beck.

After the album concludes, Flume fields a Q&A, along with a shout out from Beck, Vince Staples, Kučka and more.

Stream Skin by Flume Now

Fans have been waiting for Flume’s second album for what feels like longer than can be remembered. And though it’s still not officially out until Friday, this is a solid consolation. The album spans all manners of genres and styles, and quite often actually attempts to eschew any classification at all.

Collaborations from vocalists like Kai, Vic Mensa, Vince Staples, Kučka, and Beck give this album an already timeless feel.

It’s going to be difficult to really out-perform his debut, self-titled album, but Flume is certainly showing his evolution as a production and musician with each and every track on his sophomore LP. Not a single track feels like a filler – everything that is there is there for a reason, and it shows his vision as a creative more than anything else.

You can pre-order Skin now here.

Lucian – Follow (feat. Sleeper) [Free Download]

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 6:35pm

New York producer Lucian must keep a rigidly regulated schedule. The prolific producer turns out future bass gems every few weeks like clockwork. His most recent single, “Follow (feat. Sleeper),” is no exception. Bending his signature vocal chop-ups and brassy, punchy bass to fit in a smoother, subtler tone, Lucian and Sleeper craft a sweet and stomping love song full of ear-worm hooks and driving future bass beats. Emotional and honest while still remembering to have fun, “Follow” is one of Lucian’s most accomplished releases yet.

TV Noise – Bring Me Down ft. Bright Sparks (Original Mix)

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 6:32pm

TV Noise followed up a brief hiatus from public eye with a new musical direction, resurfacing in early May with a quirky remix to Cheat Codes and Kris Kros Amsterdam’s “SEX.” The duo now focuses on creating pop-influenced hits, with a mission of bringing the “real music” element back into their production flair.

Their first original production under this new vision comes as “Bring Me Down,” a collaboration with Bright Sparks for a tropically-influenced fare. Pan flute riffs, piano chords, and subtle electric guitar accents run abound, creating a soundscape akin to a Kygo single and encompassing the new ethos the pair’s vision. Bright Sparks’ vocals play a central role in the track, singing triumphant verses over the radio-ready production.

Fareoh Gives Skizzy Mars a Tropical Makeover With Remix To “Alcoholics”

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 6:17pm

Skizzy Mars is doing some pretty cool things out in the Big Apple. He’s already been labeled as New York’s hottest rapper by ASOS as he’s stepped onto the scene with incredible swag and a style of music you can’t help but love.

He recently called on another talented producer in the area, one of our favorites, who goes by the name of Fareoh, to step in and remix his single “Alcoholics”, which had us on the edge of our seat, eager to hear what the end result would be. Man, is it a beauty.

The minute you press play a beautiful medley of acoustic guitar and Skizzy’s voice meet your ears. The light-hearted, carefree ambiance continues, escalating into a electrifying fusion of pop and tropical vibes. Honestly, this is a remix you’ll find yourself listening to all summer long.

Listen To Part 2 Of Porter Robinson’s Edit Of RL Grime’s Remix Of The Weeknd’s “The Hills”

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 5:51pm

A couple weeks ago, Instagram user caught a video of Porter Robinson’s edit to RL Grime’s remix of The Weeknd’s “The Hills.” (Say that 10 times fast.) We thought that was the last of it, but yesterday, isabeasty uploaded part 2!

The second part is more of the first, but just building on it. Adding in more jittery synths and claps, maybe changing the notes in the drop, it gives the edit more depth than just the flat recreation shown in the first part.

Listen to both below.

The drop was insane lol . #springconcert #porterrobinson #fullerton

Deadmau5 Is SERIOUSLY Pissed At Soundcloud

Your EDM - Wed, 05/25/2016 - 5:29pm

UPDATE 5:30 PM | Deadmau5’s Soundcloud is now inexplicably back, with all of his tracks still in place.

UPDATE 4:30 PM | Deadmau5 has removed his Soundcloud, and it’s been swooped up by another lucky fellow.

https://t.co/q4MXn6rnBv scooped up by some swifty scrub. he can have it. no longer interested in their service. #RIPsoundcloud

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

he didnt steal it. he claimed the account after i deleted my account. https://t.co/xF282RLioo

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

By now, you’re probably aware that Deadmau5’s Soundcloud account was “hacked” two days ago by a collective called Our Mine. They threatened to release public information about him, and even apparently ordered a set of dildos to be sent to an old address of his. They claimed, after all this, that they were doing everything in his best interest in order to show him how to not be hacked in the future… right.

Beginning at around 1pm PST today, Deadmau5 began unleashing fury against Soundcloud after receiving an email back from their security team. The entire string of tweets is interesting to see as he progressively gets more and more frustrated with the service, threatening to remove his account. In doing so, he finds that his account is frozen.

oh, im going to disable / remove my @soundcloud account until they fix their shitty 3rd grade security.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

i dont think @soundcloud should be taking ANYONES personal information ESPECIALLY credit cards. if you were smart, you'd remove yours.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

*only* that information eh… PHEW. im glad they ONLY had access to that. /kappa pic.twitter.com/LNkDxltW0A

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

well i SURE AM GLAD their access was extremely limited to….. EVERYTHING ON FUCKING @SOUNDCLOUD

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

and then they end the email with … "please let us know if you have any questions or concerns" …. uh… *raises hand*

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

and all @soundcloud had to do is pay a handful of devs to implement two factor seciruty, nope. they dont give a fuck.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

SO! having said that, if you're an artist, you can forget @soundcloud if you think your personal is secure. because it's obviously not.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

.@SoundCloud @SCsupport i cannot access or remove my intellectual property from your site as you have frozen the account.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

.@SoundCloud @SCsupport please remove all of my data, and intellectual property, because as of now youre hosting it without consent. thanks.

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

buuut… if you still, for whatever reason, like SC's service…. please share this link: https://t.co/AtQnfV8yoA

— dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) May 25, 2016

There’s no argument against Soundcloud upgrading their security and authentication processes – no one really believes that would be a bad idea. However, there has to be some other story to this that we’re not seeing. For instance, why was his account frozen? Probably for security reasons as they investigate how someone gained access.

Deadmau5 had to cease his rant because his girlfriend was bitten by a goat. I don’t know if that’s just the perfect ending, or just “typical” deadmau5, but this likely isn’t over.
