Porter Robinson Clears Up Some Speculation About Virtual Self

Porter Robinson VIrtual Self

Amidst the rollout of Porter Robinson’s new musical alias, Virtual Self, fans have been speculating if and how he would be mixing his two sounds.

Well, Robinson took to Twitter today to clear up any speculations, stating he will not be playing Virtual Self’s music at his namesake shows and vice versa.

Going in a divergent sonic direction with his new alias, Robinson clearly wants to keep his new musical endeavor separate from his signature sound. He played his debut show in Brooklyn earlier this month and is already slated for a festival stop at BUKU in the spring.

Surely Virtual Self will be making some other festival stops in the new year and perhaps we’ll even be gifted with a headlining tour. We’re excited to see what all the ingenious producer has in store for us in 2018!

Instagram’s Feed Now Offers “Recommended” Posts

Instagram's "Recommended" posts

Instagramers’ homepage feed is susceptible to “recommended” content. In early December, the social media platform rolled out testing for their “Recommended for You” section.

Now alive and breathing, this feature suggests 3-5 posts by mirroring photos/videos that have already been liked by accounts partakers voluntarily chose to follow. Previously, suggested subject matter could be accessed in “Explore” or “Following.”

The new capability doesn’t take effect until after you’ve viewed all of the organic posts in your feed. Although getting rid of “Recommended for you” isn’t an option, temporarily disabling it is. Just tap the three-dot menu above the post, and then press “Hide.”

IG hasn’t yet confirmed a date that the “Recommended for You” transformation will be complete on both iOS and Android.

Pretty Lights To Stream NYE Weekend Shows In support Of Hurricane Relief In Puerto Rico

This past April, Pretty Lights announced an all-immersive offshore festival to be produced by the name of Island of Light. Unfortunately, in the wake of Hurricane Maria that devastated the island in September, the event had to be canceled due to the severe level of destruction.

In an effort to bring light to all who were affected, Pretty Lights (aka Derek Vincent Smith) will be live streaming his sets for free on December 28-29th at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI (10:15 pm ET) and on December 31 at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA (10:05 pm ET). These events will be broadcasted on the Pretty Lights Facebook page and Youtube Channel. A donation option will be available on both live streams, with all the proceeds going to the United for Puerto Rico.

Earlier this past fall, Pretty Lights live ran a similar event during their Whitewater Amphitheater performance in New Braunfels, TX held on September 29-30. Their campaign generated an outstanding $55,238 from donors.

Kayzo Unveils Tracklist To His Debut Album ‘Overload’

Kayzo

We’ve witnessed the meteoric rise of Kayzo over the past couple of years. As a culmination of his hard work, the Doghouse records founder will be releasing his debut album, Overload, on January 19th, 2018.

So far the producer has only released one single from the album, ‘Follow You’ featuring Devin Oliver. Now we only have three weeks to go until we can hear the rest of the album!

The tracklist reveals that Kayzo kept his collaborations to a minimum on Overload, something we haven’t seen much of lately. He once again teams up with Micah Martin, as well as collaborations with fellow bass producers Krimer and Warez.

Check out the tracklist below:

Apple Could Face Some Serious Criminal Charges in France

Here at EDMTunes, we often discuss hot topics relating to techno. Today we’re reporting on another crucial subject: tech-no’s. What are tech-no’s you may be inquiring – it’s a product and/or technology that is designed to break or malfunction within a certain time frame so that the consumer either purchases a replacement part or buys an entirely new device; in other words, predetermined obsolescence. Apple has been known for playing a key role in this tricky business scheme and recently the multi-billion dollar company has knowingly reinforced that fact.

Quick recap: at the beginning of the month, the extremely profitable association permitted the world to know one of their most well-kept secrets. They admitted that they were slowing older iPhone models to prevent telephones with older batteries from shutting down out of the blue. Today, Apple could be facing an extensive legal battle in France over their past decision.

An organization called HOP, located in France, have been hard at work regarding the prevention of planned obsolescence. In their country, the practice is not allowed and companies can be fined up to five percent of their annual sales. Recently their team took matters into their own hands and filed legal complaints against Apple in Paris, as they did in the past with Epson, due to this troubling breach.

The United States of America is also adding more fuel to the fire as two other lawsuits filed by Chicago’s Atlas Consumer Law group and certain parties in California have also contributed to the estimated 8 lawsuits. To top everything off, another class-action suit was filed earlier this week in Isreal.

Things are not looking great for the beloved company – we hope that these matters get resolved quickly and efficiently. Their recent statement has caused even more controversy. How do you think this will play out?

Ekali x ZHU – ‘Blame’ [Free Download]

Ekali x ZHU – ‘Blame’

Following a breakout year in the dance music scene, talented Canadian producer Ekali is topping it off on one of the highest notes possible with a collaboration with one of dance music’s favorite producers ZHU.

The track begins with the signature Asian-influenced Ekali sound when ZHU’s soulful vocals come in and overlay the smooth production. The build-up of oscillating synths leads into a complementary brassy drop sure to get your bobbing along. The track is a perfect genre-blending of different vibes which come together to create a unique, and beautiful, banger.

We’ve noticed that sometimes when two producers collaborate, they dilute each others’ styles too much instead of bringing out the best in one another. Well, that is certainly not the case here. ‘Blame’ is perhaps one of the catchiest tracks for both of the artists.

Stream the track below and follow the link for a free download!

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike vs. Steve Aoki feat. Abigail Breslin- We Are Legend

Say what you want to say about these three dudes, in dance music they are indeed legends. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Steve Aoki have finally released their monster collaboration called ‘We Are Legend’. The three of them have been teasing this collab for almost three years. It was indeed worth the wait.

If you remember hearing this in their sets during the past couple years, you would’ve noticed there weren’t any vocals. The official release, on the other hand, does feature vocals. The vocalist you ask? Little Miss Sunshine star Abigail Breslin. She seems to have embraced her singing skills and put down beautiful vocals that compliment the hard synths from DVLM and Aoki. It’s cool to see big names collab, no matter the industry or the reputation. Check out ‘We Are Legend’ below.

Valentino Khan’s Just Made Sweet Remix Of The Kit Kat Jingle

Is there anything sweeter than reminiscing about your childhood? Here at EDMTunes, we believe that amplifying and remixing your younger years’ favorite tracks is the icing on top of pleasant memories as it allows you to relieve some of the best years of your life during the present day. Valentino Khan has recently sugar-coated the iconic Kit Kat jingle by completely crafting the simple tune into a serious banger!

I know what you’re thinking: “give me a break”…but seriously, you’re going to want to hear this! The American producer is known for his classic jungle and deep sounds. This promo incorporates his distinct melodies and goes above and beyond everyone’s expectations. We would even take it one step further and say that if you were to be in a club setting, you wouldn’t even know this song was made for a simple candy commercial. You would look at your friends, and smile wider than when you were eating a Kit Kat bar in your childhood as the track has some serious chart-topping potential if you didn’t know it’s real purpose.

The promo itself indicates that the tune is indeed created for Kit Kat as several candy wrappers and their distinct logo are clearly demonstrated. Now that we know that the ‘Deep Down Low‘ musician can transform a simple tune into an undeniable masterpiece, we look forward to seeing if he will collaborate with other companies in order to grace the world with other sweet tracks!

Spinnin Records Yearmix

Spinnin’ Records is undeniably one of the biggest powerhouse labels in the world. Featuring releases from superstars like TritonalNicky Romero, and Hardwell, the Dutch label is known throughout the electronic music scene. The fact that they put out a year mix at the end of 2017 is no surprise. But the track selection and the quality of mixing in this three-hour epic set is nothing short of impressive.

Although most of the tracks are releases on the Spinnin’ label, there are plenty of tracks from other labels. Throughout the 180 minute mix, the energy flows easily, not spending too much time on any single song. And with 99 songs fit into three hours there isn’t any time for slow mixing! Most of the songs spend a minute or two playing by themselves before the mixing starts, making for an energetic vibe throughout. The mix features plenty of Spinnin favorites like ALOK and Lucas and SteveOliver Heldens and other artists who create music similar to the feel of Spinnin’ also appear in the tracklist. There is even a trap song that plays towards the end before closing with Hardwell and KSHMR‘s ‘Power‘.

Just like the label, Spinnin’ Records 2017 year mix stands out among a field of contenders! Save this mix for a long car ride or break it up into pieces for convenient listening. Although the flow of the mix is great, the actual mixing is so good you can pick it up at any point and enjoy the music. Check out the mix below. Let us know what your favorite song was or who your favorite Spinnin’ artist is!
