The day is finally upon us, ID&T’s TomorrowWorld is here and will make your weekend infinitely better even if you’re not in attendance. That’s right, the highly anticipated American version of Tomorrowland is live streamed for all those who couldn’t make the event. Now sadly the whole 3 day festival isn’t going to be streamed live, ID&T announced that those who’ll be watching from their couch will only be able to watch from 7PM EST to 1AM EST, but honestly that’s better than nothing. So get ready to see Tiesto, Bassnectar, Nicky Romero and more perform live from Atlanta.
It’s unclear what kind of live broadcasting format TomorrowWorld will take, whether it’ll follow in its big brother’s footsteps and only show a few minutes of as many performers as possible or rather opt for Ultra Music Festival’s style (a preferred one by fans) where mainstage sets are shown in their almost full length. Personally I prefer getting a full set but we’ll have to wait and see how TomorrowWorld decides to tackle the issue.
For those not in the know, TomorrowWorld is Tomorrowland’s sister event that takes place in Atlanta from the 26th to the 28th of September. This installment is TomorrowWorld’s second year and will see headlining acts such as Tiesto, Bassnectar, Kygo (Avicii’s replacement), Diplo, Kaskade and more. The first edition of TomorrowWorld had a $70 Million impact on Atlanta and while a few residents exclaimed their discontent with noise complaints, TomorrowWorld was viewed as a beneficial addition to the region.
“One of the big parts of TomorrowWorld coming here is putting Atlanta on the map as an event site,” said Justin Epstein, CEO of Premier Agency, which handles PR for TomorrowWorld.
The live stream is made in possible thanks to SFX (ID&T’s parent company) and its recent business partnership with T-Mobile, it’s still unclear how much T-Mobile helped TomorrowWorld’s live stream other than in name and presence.
If you happen to miss the event fret not as each day will be re-broadcasted until 6:30pm EST the next day.
Introduction: Sometimes it’s good to look back and see how far we’ve come. Sometimes it’s good to pause for a second and realize how much things have changed. Introspection can be beneficial and is something our scene needs to do more often. We’ve taken some wrong turns here and there, but it’s definitely been one hell of a ride. From Brostep to Complextro, and of course let’s not forget our current Big Room, ONFD (one note festival drop) trend, EDM (or whatever you wish to call it) has evolved into one hell of an interesting beast and it’s fun to reflect on how we got here. With that in mind we wanted to share a few “oldies” that are too good to forget.
“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah”
Remember the first time you heard that? Remember the first time you heard it at a show, or a friend showed it to you and the chills you got? Remember how you couldn’t stop listening to it? Yes I know, it was cool to hate a year or two ago, but try to remember how much you loved Avicii’s Levels. It’s nice to put all that hate aside and just enjoy the song for what it is, with its enthralling melody and catchy hook, and the chord progression so well intertwined with the vocals. For a scene that supposedly promotes PLUR, why are we so quick to cast judgement on an artist? Was it really Avicii’s fault that Levels became so popular and became overplayed? No, it wasn’t. It was ours. We loved the track, we showed the track to our friends, and they shared it with theirs. So stop hating and start loving. Enjoy.

With that in mind we wanted to share a few “oldies” that are too good to forget. The first is one of my personal favorites, Madeon’s Pop Culture mash up.
If you had to pinpoint one video that propelled Madeon’s career to what it is now, I think his pop culture mash up would be it. Here are 39 songs we still love. Enjoy!
At a moment’s glance Niia may seem like an unfamiliar face but with a little digging one will quickly realize that Niia Bertino is anything but new to the industry. Seasoned with a rich history in jazz music, and featured vocals on Wyclef Jean’s Billboard-charting single “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)”, Niia has spent the majority of her early twenties out of the limelight. Quietly honing her craft in the shadows of New York City, Niia’s debut extended play effort entitled, ‘Generation Blue’, will re-frame the burgeoning artist’s position in an often diluted music scene. In anticipation of her debut EP, Niia joined forces with The Range to rework her disco-flavored original, “David’s House”. Opening quietly with a stripped down composition of piano chords, Niia’s poignant vocals sit front and center, driving the development of the record. Twinkling chords blossom into a sturdier pulsing beat and airy synths swirl in the backdrop before deftly bowing down to shift the focus back to Niia. The Range’s rework of ‘David’s House’ is available to stream now, so listen to the track below and check out the music video here.

Let me introduce you to Dabin; a musical genius that shines in everything he does. With his debut LP slated for a release September 30th, Dabin gives us a glimpse of what to expect from Bloodless. To tease his fans, he shows off “Endlessly” which is the first single from the album.
The song “Endlessly” is something I haven’t been able to get out of my head for the past few weeks. This future bass song features the marvelous vocals of Anna Yvette who gives this song its real definition. The really interesting thing about this track is how Dabin utilizes her voice as an instrument in the song, especially in the drops of the track where the cuts and chops of Anna’s singing are present throughout. Dabin’s song “Endlessly” is an excellent first song to preview to the world.
You can be sure when I tell you, you haven’t heard anything quite like this.
Are you in need of an exciting new tune to help you turn up? Are you looking for the next song to blow your mind? Then look no further and embrace yourself for a collaboration from AWT and DivClass. With their new track “Revolt”, these two names have seen their song receive increasing acclaim. It has also made its rounds in airplay and festivals with names like George Acosta playing it on his Lost World podcast on episode 501. The song “Revolt” starts off with a subtle, low-key melody which paves the way for the imminent intensity to come. With a drop initiated by firing off horns and later blurts the sounds of banging of pots and pans in rapid succession, “Revolt” is phenomenally explosive. Both artists deliver an impeccable piece of electro house which embodies fury as every kick hits.
The track between AWT & DivClass “Revolt” is now available on Beatport from SO GOOD Music Network on their latest Ibiza Anthems 2014 compilation album. Check out the full preview below and be prepared to take in revoltingly intense music.

“Shout out to all the bands still playing actual instruments at this festival” – Win Butler, Arcade Fire; Coachella, 2014 – Weekend 1.
The outspoken Win Butler made a big statement that weekend and met harsh criticisms from the electronic music industry, including attention from one Joel Zimmerman (aka deadmau5). Check out our favorite troll’s immortal tweets here.
However, lead singer Win Butler has changed his tune. Performing as DJ Windows 98, in complete seriousness, Butler recently spun a set in Toronto of which you can catch a short video below.
This is a prime example of not only haters turned band-wagoners, but also the monumental shift in the music scene that has lead to an increased appreciation for electronic production and composition. Time will tell though whether Win will keep on DJing as DJ Windows 98 but be sure to let us know your thoughts on all this in the comment section below.
