Rich Edwards – See It All (feat. Jonny Rose)

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 8:04pm

Sweden’s Rich Edwards has become a Monstercat regular over the past few months and he is back at it again with a new original. In collaboration with Jonny Rose, a vocalist he has worked with on a previous track together with Hellberg, he has created a high quality progressive house track.

Perhaps the greatest strength of “See It All” is how all the sounds work together. The vocals fit nicely in front of the light production, letting them truly shine in the build, before introducing the playful melody and then climaxing with a feel-good drop.

Rich Edwards is quickly making a name for himself in the progressive house scene and is a fine addition to the Monstercat catalogue.

Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne – Real Love (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 7:22pm

Although they originally entered the scene making their own unique breed of indie-house, The Chainsmokers have been on a bit of a downtempo kick recently, and that is the direction they went on their latest release. The official 97th best DJs in the world, according to you know what, have put their own spin on Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne’s “Real Love”.

The track is diverse and consists of a number of different sounds. The trap influences throughout are perhaps the most noticeable, though a slight house feel is present as well. A constant progression is held the entire way through with new sounds emerging until the end.

While this is not the sound many have come to expect from the duo, they have made it their own, and are providing a nice change of pace from the progressive music everyone is familiar with. The official remix is available January 26th on Beatport.

Industry Spotlight: Pete Gross [Summit]

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 7:11pm
Pete Gross serves as the Director of Music at Summit, a group working to catalyze entrepreneurship, express global issues and create a permanent place for innovators to gather and exchange ideas. Within the organization, Pete handles booking and programming the talent, curating the executives from the Music & Entertainment industries, and other music initiatives including: distribution of live content, and the construction of a world class recording studio. Additionally, Pete owns and operates KPG Entertainment Group, an artist management, talent buying, and consulting business. Pete also sits on Localeur’s music advisory board. In 2007, Pete was a co-founder of Google’s Geo Explorer program, which completed Google’s full mapping of the world to integrate data and imagery into Google Maps & Google Earth. Pete was personally responsible for mapping over 100 cities in South America. Originally from Boston, Pete currently resides in Eden, UT and Los Angeles, CA. You can find Pete on the slopes, at live music shows, or traveling the world. His past companies include: Live Nation, Google, TalentWorks, and WME. Summit is a mash-up of Ted Talks meets Aspen Institute meets Burning Man — a year long event and conferences series for an invitation-only global community of the most innovative entrepreneurs of today — who are environmentally and socially conscious — and making a significant impact on the world. Last year, they bought one of the best ski mountains in Utah, Powder Mountain, and are building a home and community for Summit. Sir Martin Sorrell, Richard Branson, top business people, celebrities, musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs have invested in the project as it is promising to be one of the most innovative communities and build-outs in the entire world. The list of Summit Series attendees and speakers is outstanding — everyone from Bill Clinton, Ted Turner, Marc Cuban, Russell Simmons, Sean Parker — and thousands of other notable names in fields as diverse as astronauts, professional athletes, writers, scientists, politicians, philanthropists, and more of the most inspiring collection of thinkers of today. How did you start working in electronic music? How long have you been in the industry for?

I’ve been going to electronic shows since I was a teenager and got my first job working in the Music & Entertainment Industry when I started college. I worked at Live Nation at their shows across Philadelphia while attending Villanova University. Simultaneously by sophomore year, I was producing my own events, booking talent, organizing logistics, dealing with the local authorities… Essentially learning the ins and outs of event production. That would make a total of 11 years.

What makes KPG Entertainment Group unique within the fields it operates in?

KPG has evolved over the years to work in a number of different facets across the industry. I started the company when I first moved to Los Angeles six years ago with the purpose of managing a few acts. KPG manages acts, books some venues, consults on festivals, private and corporate events, and integrates brands into the music & entertainment space; all-leveraging off each other. It’s now grown into a team that services many different areas, working toward incorporating and intertwining them all. Leverage as well… I think a lot of the up and coming stars in the industry have the ability to leverage their skills and expertise in different areas to boost themselves and their clients/brands. 

Who are some artists you think the world should know about? Would you say this reflects your music taste?

Raury, Nu, Jungle, Kill Them With Colour, Eduardo Castillo, Brett Love, Tube & Berger, Vic Mensa, Super Flu, Viceroy, Nora En Pure, and David August

Definitely reflects my taste 100%. A lot of electronic acts, but also representing a wide variety of sound. And some other cool indie artists, hip hop, etc.

How do you incorporate your love for electronic music into Summit? How do you hope to see Summit grow in the future?

Summit is another constantly evolving project. It’s grown and changed so much since my inception there, which is what ultimately excites and interests me. Among other roles, I book all the talent for all of our events (Summit Series, Summit Eden, Powder Mountain). Summit’s goal is to be recognized as the premier venue for entrepreneurial pursuits. I book all of the up and coming electronic acts and expose them to our community.

Summit is building a village atop Powder Mountain that will serve as the home base for the organization and broader community. We produced a festival in June 2013 called Summit Outside where electronic acts such as Thievery Corporation, Arty, Gramatik, The Knocks, Viceroy, Goldroom and Equal all played, which was with no infrastructure whatsoever. Roads were just cut and paved this past summer. It’s a slow process yet quick and mind blowing at the same time. I hope we’re producing festivals and events up there all year long.  It’s an open mountain, it’s an open canvas… and there’s a lot I can hope to come true!

What other cool projects are you working on right now?

I’m consulting on THE Euphoria Music & Camping Festival in Austin, TX. The festival announced Pretty Lights on Christmas day. It’s shaping up to be a pretty killer line up, look for a further this month. I’m working with a dynamic music news app that just launched called Jamfeed. It aggregates everything into one platform (music, news, concerts, etc…) and also sends push notifications to your phone. Download it! Also just wrapped up working on Snowglobe up in South Lake Tahoe over new years. We produced an incredible event, (3) days over New Years with headliners: Disclosure, Flume, Porter Robinson, Skrillex, and Zedd!

What’s the best piece of advice you could give to people aspiring to work in the music business?

So many people in the industry lack the sensitivity and appreciation for all the people helping make the process possible. By simply being honest, not burning bridges, and working with integrity, you’ll be better off than most people in your position.  

To work in the music business you truly have to love it, and I’m not just talking about listening to your favorite jams. Seeking out music and exploring new artists that you wouldn’t normally listen to is a must for tracking the evolution of sound. I used to attend shows four nights a week; it really was the only way to watch and learn how the performance experience unfolds in different sized venues, how live music works, and what truly makes a moving performer.

Pensato: Fissure – Virtual Reality Interface for Ableton Live via Oculus Rift

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 6:40pm

The Oculus Rift has to be one of the coolest and most innovative pieces of technology to come out in the past few years. The potential of virtual reality is massive and no one really knows its limits yet, but a man by the name of Byron Mallet is helping to find those limits. Being incredibly creative and crafting a way to place and control music using motion sensor embedded gloves, Mallet has found a way for the Oculus Rift to make music truly tactile. Pensato is what Mallet has dubbed his music controller, which is made for exclusive use with Ableton live.

“In order to interact with Ableton Live, Pensato functions like a music hardware controller,” Mallett explained to Ableton. “This allows me to capture the entire Session View of Live, including all the tracks, clips and device parameters that can be controlled as part of a performance, and turn them into virtual controls.”

The gloves use Razer’s Hydra technology to essentially make them a controller, almost like a launch pad in some sense. In a lot of ways, Pensato is still a rough idea and not something yet ready for widespread use, but the idea alone and the potential behind it is very exciting and something I can’t wait to see finished in the future.

Watch How Skrillex & Friends Celebrate Sonny’s Birthday

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 4:45pm

Skrillex had an epic birthday party in Los Angeles last week. Even without actually being there, that statement doesn’t sound out of place at all.

With the support of celebrities like fellow music makers A-Trak and Diplo, as well as ex Ellie Goulding, and even an appearance by Tony Hawk, the party raged until the wee hours of the morning.

Though, it wouldn’t be a Skrillex party without some surprise guests – taking the stage during one moment of the night, doppelgänger Cory Feldman appeared to sing a duet with Skrillex of “What’s Up With The Youth.”

Skrillex called everyone up on stage to join him in the classic throwback, while he and Cory held the mics. Jovial doesn’t really begin to describe the atmosphere in the video, as everyone stumbles along with the lyrics until the catchy hook.

Street Ritual Teases ‘Global Glitch’ Compilation with Preview from Staunch & Goosebumpz

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 4:27pm

Street Ritual, one of the Bay Area’s primary forward-thinking bass music labels, has always been on point when it comes to showcasing a wide variety of talent. With over 80 releases under their belt since 2008 and artists like ThriftworksIll-esha, and Pumpkin on their roster, they’ve definitely been making a name for themselves in the scene. And now, to get 2015 started off with a bang, they’re releasing one of the freshest compilation albums we’ve ever heard.

It’s called Global Glitch; compiled by Street Ritual‘s very own label director, Spacegeisha, the album is dedicated to showcasing the work of musicians living outside of the USA. It will represent artists from Norway, Australia, India, Russia, Germany, and more, as well as spanning the spectrum of bass music from psychedelic deep dubs to funky, uptempo glitch-hop. With the sounds of MindexFilip RaschAtTyA, Bumble and many more on full display, you’ll quickly hear why we’re so excited for this release; in fact, you can have a listen right now with this teaser of Staunch Goosebumpz‘ track, ‘Putrid’!

The two Australian bass-slingers went in on this one and their styles mesh together perfectly. Stuttering drum patterns perfectly complement off-beat synth wails and wobbling bass lines; the song’s title definitely fits, as you’ll be scrunching up your face like you just smelled something putrid as your body grooves to the beat. Check out the preview from Staunch and Goosebumpz after the jump and keep your eyes peeled for the full release of Street Ritual‘s Global Glitch compilation, dropping January 27th!

This Week Of Fresh Face Friday Presents; Your Dose Of Trap Music

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 3:33pm

Last week we featured some awesome talent in our Remix week of Fresh Face Friday. And to begin the second week of our third round, we want to welcome some future Trap lords to the segment. From festival trap and all around the spectrum, we thought it would be sweet to feature some up and coming artists that have an emphasis in trap, or have picked up a past-time hobby of producing in the genre.

Take a minute to listen and vote for your favorite artist of the week. Have fun!

M∆KESHIFT – Flashbang

I’m originally from Fort Collins, CO but I grew up in California; so a lot of my inspiration comes from artists like gLAdiator. But I’m also influenced by the array of underground house artists supporting our culture. I don’t limit myself to a genre, hell, ten genres, I find music is the most efficient emotional outlet for me; what I make depends on what I feel, not how many likes or reposts I think it’ll get. Whether it’s for fun in the club or a lonely rainy day, music is limitless.

Farmhouse – Tragedy

Always been a guitar player at heart, I started to learn how to record through years of being that guy in the band that cares way too much. Making demos and programming drums to send to my singers ended in me building up my production chops. Nowadays I’m playing sax to try to jump start some more musical growth and adjust my style to include some “Pre 2000’s” music influences. This track obviously has none of that, this was a 5 day experiment tossing together a bunch of my sound design efforts.

Farmhouse on Facebook

Rzgold – Champagne Papi

Rzgold is a duo from LA consisting of Andrew, the rap nerd son of a legendary Bay Area rave DJ, and Taylor, the half Korean soccer chick who’s been an all star freak dancer since 7th grade youth club nights. Though they both grew up in the Bay during Hyphy’s peak, it wasn’t till needing a distraction from their mindless 9-5 job in LA that they met and started making music. Bonded by a love for Weezy, Bay slaps, and turning up at Team Supreme and Athletixx events, the mixture of club and hip hop influences came naturally to their productions. One side sexy, one side sweaty twerking in the club till 4am, rzgold is bringing Bay Area trunk rattling to the LA beat scene.

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 3:25pm

Autoerotique is back on Dim Mak for an energetic collaboration with 4B, “Bukem.” In this track a tribal percussion line follows a catchy vocal hook into a powerful, bass driven drop that will leave you stomping around on the dance floor as if you’re from the Jurassic period.

Simple and repetitive melodies clue this as a live-play record for main stage performances that can carry this insane amount of energy.

A Party in The Alps at Rise Festival

Elektro Magazine - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 3:24pm
http://www.elektrodaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/EZ.mp4

When asked if I’d be interested in heading over to the Alps for a brand new music festival with an avalanche of a dance lineup, I answered yes quicker than the time it takes me to fall on my ass from the top of a snow drenched glacier! A newcomer to the ever-popular winter music festival scene, Rise Festival had promised to go in big. With a line up promising stellar names as huge as band of the moment Clean Bandit, downright dirty DJ EZ and bass heavy heiress Hannah Wants, you couldn’t fail to be impressed by what the weekend had to offer.

Next to take on board is the sheer beauty of the place. Commonly known to be the most beautiful resort of Les Deux Alpes in France, the resort has a 2,000ft altitude and is also the world’s largest skiable glacier. Not to mention it’s pretty much picturesque perfect. It sounds like paradise… it pretty much is paradise.

So I headed out there with high expectations and full of excitement in anticipation of how my week was going to pan out. Many people have the idea of these types of skiing party festivals to be some kind of over-zealous and sordid student affair, but the crowd was a perfect mix of young and old, rowdy and well behaved. This was all shown off perfectly on the Sunday evening by a very lively and engaging carol singing performance around the beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the centre of town.

There’s always a jovial Christmas atmosphere thrown into the mix of Rise as well, so it’s ticking lots of boxes straight away. So on to the music. Clean Bandit were the big draw to the majority of the 3,000 following that had joined me in paradise for the week, and this showed by the time of their performance in the main square. With all their hits being extremely well received and a few newbies thrown in for good measure, the fans soaked up the music as the sun came down and generally the place went off.

Typically, throughout Hannah Wants’ performance she was her usual bass heavy self, with a brilliant production effort assisting her. Huge LED screens and numerous multi-coloured lights filled the vast gymnasium hall that she called home for 90 minutes, and it was packed from the off, thoroughly displaying why 2014 has been such a blockbuster year for the Brummie bass demon.

Talking of bass demons, they don’t come much bigger than DJ EZ and his set had real moments when you felt avalanches were imminent. Never one to shy away from causing a storm, classics such as ‘Sincere’ and ‘Ripgroove’ tore the Pano Bar roof down, and were to many people a clear highlight of the week.

And there were many at Rise. Perfect white mountain slopes to show off your skiing and snowboarding expertise, or even an ice disco if skating is your forte. The constant smell of cooked meats, log fires or mulled wine was a perpetual thrill, and if romance was what you sought then a very amusing Tinder speed-dating event was even on offer on the ski lifts. Rise Festival really did cater to everything you’d want and more and when Ibiza Rocks took over on the last night at the Avalanche Club it was clear my opinion was more like a general consensus. A four-hour b2b monster set from Artwork and Doorly was the perfect ending to most people’s week and it sure was for mine. I came to Rise expecting paradise, and I left feeling that and more. Bring on next year!

Your EDM Premiere: Bear Grillz – Praise It [Firepower Records]

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 2:43pm

Every once in a while, the wild bear comes out of hibernation to lay some heavy bass on the campers in the woods. It’s a phenomenon not often captured on camera, as the heavy sonic waves destroy the components of most visual capture devices, including digital cameras and smartphones. The sound waves are heard for miles around for about 15 minutes and then never heard again, as the bear once again retreats into the thick underbrush and disappears from sight. It is said that to witness the phenomenon first hand would be enough to grant you entry into heaven, despite any sins you may have committed.

Well, we finally captured some audio from this fabled event and we’re here to bring it to you. We only have the first portion of the recording though, so you’ll have to wait until the rest of it surfaces organically.

This “sonic event” has been given the codename “Praise It,” as it seems to be the vocal focus of the event. Along with the bear, a reggae band emerges from the thick foliage along with a large subwoofer. After the bear is satisfied with the reggae intro, he hops onto the subwoofer and delivers an astounding and vile display of bass. It’s difficult to say what exactly is emitting these unnatural sounds, but we believe the bear’s duck friend has something to do with it. If the campers are lucky enough to remain conscious after the first phase of the event, they might be lucky enough to witness an even more vile display of bass in the second “phase.”

As quickly as the event begins, it ends. The bear, duck, subwoofer and reggae band retreat and thus we await for word of the next event.

You can pre-order the full recording of the event, collectively called The Unbearable EP, on iTunes now.

Disclosure Respond To Allegations of Plagiarism

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 2:18pm

Two days ago, the news broke that Disclosure and Aluna George were being sued for allegedly perjuring lyrics to the songs “Latch,” “White Noise” and “You and Me” from a notebook belonging to Katie Farrah Sopher. Sopher claims that her ex stole the notebook and it eventually found its way to the UK duo who then used its contents for their songs.

The ex in question has already denied those allegations, but Disclosure themselves responded in a post on Facebook early this morning, stating that “we are musicians, artists and producers” and that any kind of accusations accusing them of stealing lyrics or any other foundational components of their tracks are completely false.

And while the bulk of the message reads like a well-written press release, a little tidbit at the bottom revealing progress on their second album is newsworthy in its own right. Disclosure’s debut album Settle reached #1 on the UK Albums chart as well as the US Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and it was even nominated for a Grammy last year. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next.

Hi all,
Just wanted to post a little something for our fans who may have read the blogs in the last couple of days and help clear up some speculation that has been circulating, to do with whether or not we wrote the lyrics to some of our songs.
Firstly we want to make it very clear that every Disclosure song we have put our names to has been written by us. We sometimes write lyrics and melodies along-side whoever the featured singer may be (i.e. Sam, Eliza etc) and the great Mr. Jimmy Napes, but that is it. When we do, we always make sure everyone gets proper credit. We take great pride in our self sufficiency, our work and the way we work, and it’s incredibly frustrating when someone tries to take that away from us, by claiming we stole even one word or one note of our music from anyone.
We’d much rather be working on more music than commenting on these type of things, but it felt like we had no choice…
So, just to be clear, all allegations made against us to do with this subject are completely false, as anyone we have ever worked with will back up. We didn’t get into this industry to steal other people’s ideas and we haven’t – we are musicians, artists and producers.
In better news… Album 2 is niiiiicely underway!

Your EDM Interview: Bare Noize

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 1:50pm

One of the bass acts we feel you should keep a close eye on this year is Bare Noize, who deliver post-dubstep beats that ooze sophistication and individuality. With their huge double-sided single ‘Dire/Reticulum’ dropping at the very end of last year, we had a chat with the pair to hear more about their tune creation.

How did you both first get involved with music?

Dan: At about the age of 15 I got my first pair of turntables. I was massively into all electronic music. Shortly after that, I got my first copy of production software which was Propellerhead’s Reason. And the rest is history really.
Ollie: I guess I realised that I wanted a career in music was when I got bought my first guitar in 1994. We were always playing in bands and writing music at school and my love for the creationary aspect grew and grew. I remember looking at the inside cover of Dre 2001 and seeing that SSL and thinking, “I want to know what all those buttons do”.

If you could name three of your biggest influences, who would they be?

Dan: Always a tough question as there are SO many for me, but if my life depended on HAVING to name three then I would probably say: The Prodigy, Amon Tobin and Bonobo. But there really are lots!
Ollie: Definitely can’t name just three! My early influences were people like Machine Head, Metallica, Muse, Radiohead. I loved the work that went into their records. I used to listen to Satriani and think “this guy is just superhuman”, it’s that extra dimension that really engages me. The expertise and creative skill of the musicians and engineers getting such amazing results often interested me more than the music. Drum & Bass from 1999-2003 had a big effect on me too. Tunes had their own identity, people didn’t just draw for the same snare as everyone else and producers had to stand out if they wanted to get noticed. That mindset has stayed with me.

What was the creative process behind the single like for this one? Did it come together quickly?

‘Dire’ was actually written a while ago now, we have never really known where to place it. It was only recently that we got a B-side ready for it and managed to finally get it out there. Creatively it was a very quick one though. The main ideas literally came together in a couple of days for both tracks.

What are the best and worst things about working as a duo?

The best thing about working as a duo is that two minds are often better than one. Can’t really think of the worst thing!

With the sounds of today’s electronic music changing so rapidly, where do you see your sound heading towards in the future?

As an artist, Bare Noize has evolved quite organically over the years. Therefore the most sensible thing to do would be for the project keep growing organically and just enjoy the ride. It’s impossible to see where we will be in the future.

What has been your top Bare Noize moment of 2014?

The top moment has been this release coming to light finally and watching the video for it come together along the way. Very excited to finally show it to the world as a package.

Watch Deadmau5 Build Awesome Synthesizer

Your EDM - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 12:58pm

Any deadmau5 fan will know that the famous Canadian producer and DJ is an avid fanatic of analog synthesizers, often spending the likes of tens of thousands of dollars (if not more) on new parts and elements. So with that in mind, it’ll come as little surprise that Joel Zimmerman, better known as deadmau5, decided to live stream himself building a modular synth from scratch. The artist is a big enthusiast of interacting with his fans via live streams and social media, and recently Joel’s been mainly focusing on growing his Twitch channel by streaming himself play Diablo, ramble about EDM and at times make music. In the two videos below, you’ll get to see deadmau5 build his new synthesizer for over 3 hours.

Deadmau5 is also preparing a special performance and set for the closing night of Toronto’s infamous nightclub The Guvernment. You can read more about it here: Deadmau5’s special surprise for The Guvernment
