Fresh Off His Third LP, Liquid DnB Extraordinaire Etherwood Takes The Decks For Beats 1 One Mix

The type of music that makes you feel like you’re floating in the sky.

Beats 1’s weekly radio show, One Mix, continues its foray into drum ‘n’ bass with another incredible artist this weekend.

Fresh from releasing his third studio album, UK artist Etherwood will be taking the decks for One Mix. In Stillness, released just a week ago, is the perfect embodiment of Etherwood’s eclectic sound. Created in the Nordic wilderness, it’s no surprise the album is heavily influenced by nature, isolation, and tones of tranquility and warmth.

Etherwood has a penchant for combining DnB’s raw energy with honest elegant soundscapes. An exemplary take on liquid funk, a subgenre marked by focus on traditional instrumental sounds over bar-based creation, Etherwood’s style is deeply inspired by his background as a multi-instrumentalist. Rather than synths, his music is dominated by classic elements like the piano, guitar and saxophone, atop captivating DnB beats. Not to mention, he often sings on his songs, adding layers of honest vocals over soundscapes already brimming with emotion.

The amalgamation of such diverse influences results in an overall sound that is atmospheric, angelic and poignant.

Tune into Beats 1 One mix to hear what he’s all about.


Air Dates:
Friday 9th March 2018 – 23:00 LA / 02:00 NY / 07:00 UK
Saturday 10th March 2018 – 06:00 LA / 09:00 NY / 14:00 UK

Expect the finest liquid DnB on his One Mix, with tunes from artists like Spectrasoul, Mohican Sun, Alix Perez, Om Unit, Dawn Wall and Haolgenix, and of course, stand out tracks from his recent 15 track LP

Before the mix, we got a chance to ask Etherwood some questions. Read on

What So Not- Not All The Beautiful Things

What So Not- Not All The Beautiful Things

One of the most musically creative duos has finally released their biggest album to date. Made up of Flume and Emoh Instead, Australian duo What So Not dropped their next album titled Not All The Beautiful Things.

The album, comprised of twelve tracks, showcases the duo’s diverse sound and creativity to make truly unique music. The growth of What So Not has allowed them to feature mega talent on the album as well. You’ll see features from San Holo, Toto, BUOY, and even Skrillex and Dyro.

The tracks are all individually so different. What So Not kept their indie-house sound on songs like ‘Be Ok Again’, ‘Beautiful’, and ‘We Keep On Running’. The track ‘Monsters’, featuring Michael Christmas and Tobi Lou, is essentially a hip-hop song with a Flume beat. ‘Goh’, featuring Skrillex, and ‘Bottom End’, featuring Dyro, are the two hardest songs on the album, incorporating heavy synths and vibrant drops. No surprise there.

Overall, Not All The Beautiful Things is a masterclass in production. It is very different than anything on the mainstream platform, so the album won’t be for everyone. But the fact that the album is produced so well, features so many other big name artists, and has such diverse sounds makes What So Not’s new LP a must listen- even if it is one time through. They’ve definitely earned at least that.

A New Story for Nero Members Dan and Alana

group

The Night – Dan and Alana

Yesterday, a cryptic post by Nero was scattered across all Nero social media channels.

“For the past decade you’ve stood by our side as Nero. It’s now time to tell a different story.” Members of the trio, Dan Stephens and Alana Watson, signed the post. The words “The Night” appear on the post as well. We speculate this to be the title of a new project by the duo.

 

The group had huge happenings during the summer of 2017. Third Nero-member Joseph Ray delivered his first solo release project with Meli entitled ‘Inside‘. He also spent a lot of time teaching and collaborating with local musicians in Haiti. Married couple Stephens and Watson announced a baby on the way around the same time in June. It’s full steam ahead for these parents as they announced a musical hiatus for the remainder of that year.

The Night was first mentioned by Dan with Fabric when he stated: “We felt like we needed a bit of time away from the group after the second album.” Since then, they’ve had multiple side project ideas. Here comes ‘The Night‘, a hard to define genre-wise project but a very different vibe from Nero. Most of it will sit at 90 – 110 BPM. The two have even hinted they’ve got an album’s worth of material well on its way to completion. The first single on their EP is called ‘Different Story‘ which they have assured us will be jaw dropping.

 

With an imminent release date but no artwork or label, it does seem uncanny. Nevertheless, while we wait in suspense on this extended hiatus, let’s see what The Night brings us. It may seem like the group is breaking up, but maybe they’re just evolving.

Ben Gold & Audrey Gallagher – There Will Be Angels

Ben Gold & Audrey Gallagher – There Will Be Angels

Ben Gold teamed up with Audrey Gallagher to produce ‘There Will Be Angels’, a soothing vocal infused track which will be hitting the top of the charts in no time.

The British Trance legend is the future of Trance music. Britain has a long history of producing top level Trance acts, but Ben Gold has the potential to be one of the best. Ben’s resume includes the Official ASOT 750 Anthem and the widely acclaimed track ‘Kingdoms’ which was released last November.

His latest track, the first release from his upcoming album, blends the U.K. artist’s radiant signature sound with the soaring vocals of Audrey Gallagher. Mixed with a powerful melody and strong lyrics, this cut proves yet another stand-out single ready to take over the world.

The collaboration between Ben and Audrey is certainly one we’d love to see again. This track however, is a magnificent prelude to what is sure to be a busy year for the London native. The hype surrounding Ben Gold has been growing exponentially over the last several years, and the time is ripe for him to release his debut artist album. Sound Advice, Ben’s album, is set to be released soon and pre-order begins today.

TEED Makes His Triumphant Return With New Single ‘Leave A Light On’

We have been waiting for new music from the inspirational producer TEED (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) for years now, and good news: he has finally delivered with a gorgeous new track entitled ‘Leave A Light On.’

Even though TEED released the track on his own birthday, he decided to gift us with his first new song in years to celebrate.

The emotional ballad takes listeners on a journey through beautiful melodies and glistening synths. TEED’s mastery of artistry and song-writing is on full display. We are elated that so many producers are pushing electronic music to new artistic heights and not just creating EDM bangers.

TEED is currently working on an album, and the process of creating it has been “incredibly hard” for him, in his own words. If ‘Leave A Light On’ is any indication of what we can expect, then we are extremely excited for the album and we know all of his hard work and efforts will be worth it.

Listen to the track below!

Miami Police Release Mass-Shooter Response Plan for Ultra 2018

Related image

It is so terribly sad that this has become such a huge problem in our society today. It breaks my heart that the days of feeling free at music festivals are long gone. However, in turn, it’s so great that law enforcement is putting so much effort to make attendees feel safe.

In the wake of the tragic Las Vegas shooting that killed 59 and left more than 500 injured, the Miami Police Department is reworking its security measures for the upcoming Ultra Music Festival this month.

The Vegas shooter opened fire on the crowd of Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel and Casino.

Since Ultra takes place in Bayfront Park in downtown Miami, this has become a great concern. The festival is surrounded by high rise condos and hotels.

Between traffic adjustments and bus rerouting, representatives for MPD and Ultra explained their plans for responding to a “mass casualty” situation. Additionally, each of the skyscrapers surrounding Bayfront Park will be assigned a number. Officers will use the numbers to quickly identify where a hypothetical gunman could be posted in the event of a shooting. SWAT teams will also be present during the event.

MPD also detailed other security measures and information about road closures and related topics. To prevent drugs or firearms from entering the park, the festival will enforce a clear-bag policy. Amnesty boxes will be placed at the gate for attendees to surrender any drugs or weapons to the police. No questions asked.

Police will also monitor entrances and use exit chutes to eject anyone causing trouble. The festival will again use Formula E racing fences to secure the grounds, which have been enforced since 2014, when a mob of gate-crashers trampled a security guard.

Hopefully, all attendees can experience a worry-free, fun, and exciting weekend, without feeling scared or in danger.

Traffic rerouting will begin Thursday, March 22nd. This will include the closure of northbound Biscayne Boulevard from Chopin Plaza to NE Fourth Street. Traffic will return to normal on Monday morning, after the festival. The festival will take place Friday, March 23rd, through Sunday, March 25th, 2018.

If you haven’t already got your tickets, you can do so here.

Spotify Supports International Women’s Day with Smirnoff Equalizer

March 8 is the day women commemorate the struggle to live in a more equal society, where we don’t get paid less for the same job, and receive as many opportunities as men in every aspect of life. The music industry is also conscious about this matter, and yesterday, in honor of International Women’s Day, Spotify took another step forward in erasing the gender gap. Sponsored by Smirnoff, the online music streaming company introduced a new exclusive tool for their music player, the Smirnoff Equalizer.

What’s the concept behind this idea? The Smirnoff Equalizer is meant to show users a breakdown with percentages of their listening habits in terms of gender. Then, for those who listen primarily to one gender, Spotify will generate more balanced playlists based on the user’s preferences.The brilliant initiative came up after Spotify’s 2017 statistics showed that 100% of the top streamed tracks were performed by men.

This is not be the first time that Smirnoff has engaged in equality-oriented activities. In May 2017, Smirnoff was part of the ‘Equalizing Music‘ campaign that aimed to empower female DJs and producers and encouraged them to become more active in the electronic music scene.

Are you ready to discover new amazing tunes from women artists? Connect to Spotify and enjoy the Smirnoff Equalizer here.
