deadmau5 Announces Rehearsals for Cube 3.0 are Finished, Shares First Photo

The producer’s classic structure got a massive upgrade.

deadmau5‘s shared the first rendering of his live structure Cube 3.0 on his Twitch account (which has since been deleted by the producer himself) back in January, and has kept fans excited to see the final product for some time now. 

Now, the artist (real name Joel Zimmerman) has announced that the rehearsals for the performances are finished, and shared a stunning first picture of the Cube 3.0 in action.  

As noted in his stream, Zimmerman designed the massive structure himself, and it’s not the first time he’s played such an active role in his own stage show. He used the game development engine Unreal Engine to give fans a glimpse of the Cube 2.0 design back in 2016.

As noted in the picture, taken by @leahsems, the Cube 3.0 is definitely a big upgrade on the previous version, and will be debuted at Ultra Music Festival in Miami at the end of March. 

deadmau5 is performing March 1st and 2nd in Park City Live. Get your tickets here

The Swedish Grammys Dedicate Tribute Video to Avicii

The late musician’s country honors him in a beautiful way.

Earlier this February, the Swedish Grammys (also known as Grammisgalan) released an emotional tribute video in honor of Tim Berling, whose music under Avicii was met with yearlong, worldwide praise. Avicii’s father Klaus Bergling received an honorary award on his behalf, and the tribute video released by the Grammisgalan is moving fans all over the world. 

Featuring Bergling’s own music, most notably one of his most recognizable hits “Levels”, the 3-minute long, heartwarming video depicts his rise to international stardom, as well as fellow musicians such as Steve Aoki and Tiësto paying him their respects. 

Tim Bergling tragically passed away Muscat, Oman in April of 2018. The cause of his death was speculated to be suicide. Bergling was struggling with depression, drug and alcohol abuse, and had stopped performing shows since 2016 after his touring life took a toll on his mental health. His melodic, pop-influenced sound and immense songwriting ability won the hearts of millions within the past decade, and contributed to arguably transcending electronic music to new heights.

The Chainsmokers and Chris Martin Performed at Wedding Party

The Chainsmokers and Chris Martin Performed at Wedding Party

Oh, the lives of the insanely wealthy…Specifically Akash Ambani, the son of India’s richest entrepreneur, and his bride-to-be Shloka Mehta. They recently held a pre-wedding party that featured performances from The Chainsmokers and Chris Martin of Coldplay. This three-day high-profile event is taking place in St. Moritz in Switzerland.

Moreover, the guest list is just as star-studded as entertainment. Various Bollywood celebrities are in attendance. In a few videos posted on Instagram, we can see The Chainsmokers and Martin serenading these guests in the most intimate concert imaginable. These artists so close you could reach out and touch them. Undoubtedly, It’s a dream come true…at least if you’re one of the lucky partygoers.

It feels important to note that this event isn’t even the actual wedding. It’s just a pre-wedding. The wedding itself takes place on March 9th, and it will likely be even more extravagant than this. Though it’s impossible to even imagine what they’re going to do. Undoubtedly, when you have a net worth of $48.5 billion anything and everything is possible.

We hope that Akash and Shloka have a wonderful and happy wedding. Next time…just invite us to the party! Check out some of the footage from the wedding down below!

Diplo Headlines Stagecoach After Party Late Night in Palomino

diplo stagecoach

Well folks, it happened–Diplo is taking electronic dance music to Stagecoach Country Music Festival. Playing the late night after party on Sunday, the Diplodocus is taking the stage and closing the weekend out with a bang. Taking place at 11 pm, April 28th, be at the Palomino Stage after Jason Aldean wraps up! It’s going to be another wild conclusion to the weekend.

Many collaborations between pop and electronic artists happen; it’s time for country to tkae a turn. Normally, an internationally known, award-winning EDM artist from LA doesn’t seem fit for a country festival right? Actually, since this is an annual Goldenvoice-produced event, many genre lines are bound to be blurred. Just think of all the surprise stops we have had at Coachella.

“That’s a transition you can only see at Stagecoach,” -festival talent buyer, stacy vee

Festival talent buyer, Stacy Vee also notes that this is basically California country in a nutshell.

How did this come to be?

Diplo and his team approached Vee several years ago inquiring about being part of the dominating country music fest. Held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, it is the the same location where Coachella is held. Let’s not forget Diplo is also slated to perform there as well. Let the marathon begin!

At first, the chances of EDM entering Stagecoach were slim. You do not mess with country fans and their music. However, now on its 13th year, it’s time to spice things up a bit. As you read this, you should know that this is serious for Tom. It is a genre and direction that is important to him. He proved his dedication by showing up to the festival with this team last year decked out in country gear. Imagine, a crew of Diplo shirts and cowboy hats negotiating backstage for the official deal!

Tickets are on sale now, you can purchase here. From April 26-28th, enjoy yourself along with a late night from our Grammy award winner. View his trailer below and tell all your friends.

Laserface by Gareth Emery Hits Miami Music Week!

In 2017, legendary trance DJ & Producer, Gareth Emery, took light shows to the next level and introduced his iconic Laserface experience to the world. If the word couldn’t be any clearer, imagine a gargantuan of lasers—in your face—paired to your most beloved trance tracks. Anyone who’s had the opportunity to be graced by this production can easily testify that there’s no other show like it.

Enter 2019, and Gareth is outdoing himself again by bringing the concept to a plethora of cities worldwide. Each venue carefully handpicked himself, Gareth is going big by jumpstarting the 2019 tour with Laserface Miami!

Set for Friday, March 29th, Laserface Miami will take place during Miami Music Week. If Ultra Miami seemed like the winning destination for most dance music lovers that weekend, Laserface is a spectacle of its own to be reckoned with.

This mind-blowing live show will feature flawlessly choreographed lasers by globally renowned, laser show designer, Anthony Garcia, alongside leading-edge new technology exclusive to the show. With unprecedented number of lasers, fans have consistently been left astounded in awe—dreaming, reminiscing, and yearning for more.

Check out Laserface at Dreamstate SoCal 2018 below for a little taste. Granted, there’s no denying the lack of justice watching it on screen, your jaw is still going to drop. Laserface is a show like no other. To relive the moment, you would wish the videos of this production can represent even a tiny fraction of the magic it truly brings live.

Laserface Miami comes to Mana Wynwood on March 29th. Tickets are on sale now, so grab them here before they sell out!

Duke Dumont Releases New Underground Track on ‘For Club Play Only’

Red Light Green Light – Duke Dumont

Duke Dumont is back at it again with a new release for his For Club Play Only series. Titled ‘Red Light Green Light‘, it is the sixth track on this album. Our British producer teamed up with Shaun Ross for this sweet track. Possible next club anthem for him?

The song consists of pulsing house synths along with a funky beat. As you listen, you’ll feel like you’re being transported to the underground. Walking through the dark hallways into the warehouse, a commanding bassline pounds. Blaring trumpets sound. Ross’s vocals narrate your club experience with lasers popping off in the background. It is a conversation between DJ and dancer. He describes everything you already know. There are two instructions you need to follow: stop at a red light, go at a green light. When the strobe light hits, show us how you dance.

This single follows Dumont’s latest hit, ‘Runway‘. Compared to the other club floor ready fillers, you take a wild ride with this one. His songs can be known as sonic confections. After all, we adore his past favorites when he plays them. Once a producer’s producer, he is now the people’s producer. His synthesis of techno, UK garage, and house bring us deep productions we dive into dance for.

For Club Play Only kicked off in 2012 with rumors of ending in 2016. Duke’s surprise resurgence with his fifth track gave us curiosity for more. With a sixth track out, the fun only continues! When Chris Lake exposed this track, the crowd went bonkers. Out now for our listening pleasure, here it is!

This is the perfect addition to the collection, so take a listen below. Don’t forget to purchase the song via Astralwerks.
