Swedish House Mafia's Latest Timer Counts Down to… Nothing?

Swedish House Mafia’s latest countdown timer ended with no announcement

UPDATE: It has been brought to our attention that although barely any discernible difference has been made to SwedishHouseMafia.com, the latest countdown timer coincided with tickets to their Mexico City show going on sale. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Swedish House Mafia‘s reunion has remained one of the hottest topics in EDM this year. The supergroup have kept the buzz alive by preceding each 2019 tour date announcement with its own countdown timer. When the latest wound down, however, no announcement was made.

The previous three timers each coincided with 2019 show dates – the first two in Stockholm and the third in Mexico City. At the time of writing over an hour has passed since the fourth ran out, but a visit to SwedishHouseMafia.com reveals that a new date has not been announced (although a new timer has started at the bottom of the page). 

Swedish House Mafia became synonymous with the EDM boom of the past decade as songs like “One” and “Greyhound” found their way onto mainstream airwaves. Following a five-year hiatus, the trio consisting of Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso reunited with a performance at the 2018 edition of Ultra Music Festival in Miami. As their recent announcements have pointed to a more permanent reunion, electronic music fans the world over have paid close attention to their social media accounts.

Swedish House Mafia’s fifth online countdown timer will run out on Wednesday, November 28th of 2018 at 11:00 AM UTC. In the meantime, it remains to be seen whether they will make a belated announcement to coincide with the one that ran out today.

Mariah Carey Reveals A New Collaboration With Skrillex & A Bonus Surprise!

Japan is one of the biggest music markets in the world outside of the United States. That said, many artists, such as the talented Mariah Carey, tend to have Japanese editions with exclusive tracks. Recently, the American singer reinforced this by announcing that not only will her new album, christened ‘Caution‘, include a new single with Skrillex, but a bonus edition will also contain “another collaboration with the amazing” musician.

Since Carey’s Twitter post, fans have been flocking to try to hear the special bonus track, ‘Runaway‘. Her army of followers have quickly been disappointed as this exclusive piece is only available on the Japenese edition of the new album. That’s right, ravers, it’s going to take a few connections in order to hear this alleged epic tune, despite the pre-order being available here.

Although the news of the bonus track not being available outside of Japan is disappointing, the anticipation to hear her new album is certainly on the music world’s radar. We look forward to hearing it, and hope to get our hands on the Skrillex collab ASAP!

City of Miami Hears Statements on Ultra’s Move to Virginia Key Beach

UPDATE: Meeting is in recess until 3pm

Today, November 15, the City of Miami held a commission meeting to hear statements on why Ultra Music Festival – a festival that claims Miami as its home – should or should not be approved for its move to Virginia Key Beach.

Several members of the community came out to voice what the positive and negative impacts of Ultra’s move would have on the island. Residents of the Village of Key Biscayne along with their Mayor-Elect Mike Davey voiced several concerns including environmental harm, disruptions to schools nearby, and no planning for efficient traffic/transportation. On the other side of the argument, speakers stated Ultra can provide the resources to improve the environment, bring in major revenue to the economy and connect people from all walks of life.

Included amongst the speakers was Rapture Music Festival who has previously held its event on Virginia Key. A representative from them stated “We [Rapture] have always been an environmentally friendly event. Ultra stole the concept from the Rapture brand to receive approval. If Ultra moves to Virginia Key, it would put us out of business.”

After being ejected from Bayfront Park, Ultra chose to host its 2019 edition at the Miami Marine Stadium and Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. Opposition to the festival returning to its original location came from downtown Miami residents, however the residents of Key Biscayne proved to be just as opposed (if not more) on the new choice of venue.

Watch the video of the meeting below and read specific statements on our Twitter page. Stay tuned for the final vote on Ultra’s move to Virginia Key.

Dance Meets Dancehall in “Rewind,” A Sensual, Smoldering Hit from Monom Records

Caribbean Music has had a massive impact on the evolution of dance music; “Rewind” is a perfect example of why.

Throughout the last half decade the influence of Caribbean music on the evolution of dance, and even on pop music as a whole, has been completely undeniable. From mega-hits like Rihanna and Drake’s “Work” to Skrillex and Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” – as well as countless other fantastic dancehall, dub, and reggae-inspired records – Caribbean vibes have become pervasive throughout the world of music, and this infusion couldn’t be more exciting.

This influence has rarely been more clear than in Riddim Travelers’ new release, “Rewind,” on Monom Records. Combining the legendary production chops of platinum hit-maker Alexx Antaeus (Riddim Travelers) with the sensual vocal work of Atlanta-based soulstress Cherae and Jamaican singjay Dutchess, “Rewind” captures the essence of a club-ready dancehall record, while simultaneously embracing the tight structure and solid construction necessary for an FM radio hit.

Dripping with a sensuality sure to tantalize the ears and mind of the listener, Dutchess and Cherae’s vocal performance on “Rewind” serve as the ideal complement to each other, creating a perfect sonic contrast that will leave you craving more. Dutchess comes on strong, rapping in her seductive Jamaican accent, while Cherae provides a soothing serenade in her sultry, R&B-infused style; a battle of styles that is both mysterious and erotic.

One thing is sure about Riddim Travelers’ “Rewind;” the repeated refrain of “Hey DJ, play my song…” perfectly captures our feelings about this record. Let’s rewind and play it again!!

Stream or download “Rewind” across platforms here.

Lee Burridge’s USB Stolen From CDJs After Set, Asks for Kind Return

As a DJ, your USB is perhaps the most important thing in your possession at the club. It contains all the specifically selected and formatted tracks you need to rock the CDJs. So when someone takes your USB when you leave the DJ booth to greet fans, it’s understandably upsetting. This is exactly the situation that led Lee Burridge to make a long Facebook post on November 13th addressed to an unknown culprit.

A thief at Return to Rio in Sydney, Australia not only caused offense to Burridge personally, but also can potentially ruin quite a few things for many people. Many artists, Burridge included, keep unreleased tracks from friends and colleagues on their USBs. And as the leading force of All Day I Dream, Burridge holds many pre-released tracks on his drive.

As of now, Lee has explained that he will gladly overlook the theft “if you return the USB and don’t add it to your iTunes”. He also included the “fact there was 360 degree camera on stage”, and you can bet that they will be checking it.

You can read Lee’s entire post below, or on his Facebook page. Undoubtedly a video will surface with evidence. Until then we can only hope that the person who decided taking someone else’s flash drive is nice enough to bring it back. And without adding it to their iTunes!

Dillon Francis Releases New Comedy Show ‘Like and Subscribe’

Dillon Francis’ internet comedy show “Like and Subscribe” is finally out for the world to watch. It was originally supposed to air back in July, but the show’s network shut down. However, last week, it was announced that the show was newly picked up by Funny Or Die.

“Like and Subscribe” stars Francis, who is also the executive producer. His character is Skyy Goldwynne, Hollywood’s most notorious manager. He locks four of his most controversial clients in a house together. It’s full of references to real life social media stars and the drama that exists on the internet.

Is the show funny? That’s up for interpretation. It certainly tries to be. Francis’ over-the-top persona definitely translates well on the screen, and his acting is good. But it feels like over-the-top is really all the show has going for it.

All seven episodes are available to stream for free on Funny Or Die’s website and YouTube. Definitely check it out and see for yourself.

Low – i_o

Low – i_o

Los Angeles-based DJ and producer i_o is quickly becoming one of the biggest stars in the progressive and techno scene. Signed to Deadmau5’s label Mau5trap, i_o has been developing an impeccable collection of records. Easily recognizable in the raw driving techy aspect shared by his previous compositions, i_o’s musical talent is breaking ground on a new track: ‘Low’.
The first of two tracks on the new Low EP, the titular tune is definitely focused on one end of the sound spectrum. A combination of pounding techno drums and an almost guttural-sounding bassline creates a thick low end that envelops the listener. i_o also brings in an enthralling vocal stem with the words “I don’t wanna get high, I just wanna get low”. To say that the high end of this track is nearly nonexistent would hardly be a stretch.
You can check out this exclusive premiere from mau5trap records in the video below. We can see that the second track is called ‘Move,’ so expect more driving techno to come from i_o soon.
Until then, enjoy this track from quite the talented artist and member of the Mau5trap team. And if you’re listening to this track on any speaker system without a subwoofer, you might want to try again. While it’s true that any music is lacking without the low end, you’ll really need proper speakers to get down to ‘Low.’

Rapture Electronic Music Festival Founders Urge Voters to Keep Ultra Out of Virginia Key

“We are strongly opposed to Ultra Music Festival’s proposal to relocate.”

A Miami City Commission vote to determine whether Ultra Music Festival will be allowed to relocate to Virginia Key is scheduled to take place tomorrow, November 15th. Adding to voices who have already opposed the move are Rapture Electronic Music Festival Founders Youssef Khamis and Misha Varum.

A joint statement issued by Khamis and Varum makes a case for Rapture remaining on Historic Virginia Key Beach Park (HVKBP) instead of Ultra. “We are strongly opposed to Ultra Music Festival’s proposal to relocate to HVKBP as we currently have a signed contract with the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park Trust for March 29 and March 30, 2019 and we’re very much looking forward to returning to this beautiful beachside setting for our third edition with our fans,” it reads.

Khamis and Varum’s statement goes on to highlight Rapture’s commitment to initiatives like waste management and conservation. It mentions partnerships with The Big Blue & You and Ocean Generation as having resulted in onsite plastic straw bans and volunteer cleanup efforts.

Rapture Electronic Music Festival has taken place annually since 2017 on Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. Its third edition is scheduled for March 29th and 30th of 2019 – two of the three days on which Ultra Music Festival falls. Khamis had previously spoken out on the festival’s proposed move when its organizers’ discussions with the city first found their way to the public.

Ultra Music Festival is still slated to take place from Friday, March 29th to Sunday, March 31st. Tickets to Ultra can be purchased here, and tickets to Rapture can be found here.

Alter. Delivers a "Fatal" Blow with His Latest Track

“Fatal” sees Alter. at his bass-heavy best.

Three months ago, Seattle producer Steven Trueba inaugurated a new project called Alter. with the R&B-inclined “SubSpaces” on Big Slide Records. EDM.com partner label Artist Intelligence Agency is proud to present his follow-up single. The aptly named “Fatal” sees Trueba raise the energy level for a bass-heavy tune that still exhibits a fair amount of songwriter appeal.

Trueba’s crooning verses take center stage for most of “Fatal.” A gritty sawtooth at the drop equips the song with a measure of headbanger appeal, with sonic fine tunings that will speak to the sensibilities of any music aficionado as well.

“Fatal” by Alter. is out now on Artist Intelligence Agency. Keep this talent in your sights to see what else he has in store for the rest of the year.

Aymen Leaves His Mark on "Where I'm Going" by Miles Away ft. Ronak

Aymen found a way to make Miles Away’s 2017 track shine a little brighter.

Miles Away took EDM fans on a feels trip last year with a future bass/dance pop tune titled “Where I’m Going” featuring Ronak. Aymen has shown that there was still uncharted territory left to explore on the aural journey. His serene remix of the source material is out now on Hegemon Select.

Aymen kept the hallmarks of “Where I’m Going” largely intact, opting to apply his own sound design sensibility to the chords and instrumentals that defined the original. The synth at the drop is much more full, and it undergoes even more of a transformation the second time it rings out.

The Aymen remix of “Where I’m Going” ft. Ronak by Miles Away is out now via Hegemon Select. For more of the same, don’t let this promising talent out of your sights.

Lucchii Lights it Up in "Legacy" ft. Stefan Crane

The latest single by Lucchii takes a turn you might not expect.

EDM fans who want the best of both worlds need not look further than Lucchii‘s latest endeavor. From serene melodies to scorching drops, the Los Angeles native delivers it all in “Legacy” featuring Stefan Crane

Softer sonic elements frame Crane’s echoing vocal for the first portion of the track – that is, until the drop takes center stage. In spite of how hard it hits, Lucchii’s expertise as a producer shines through. Dubstep wobbles and trap percussion make aural shockwaves sure to send ripples through any crowd for whom “Legacy” is played.

This piece was written and composed to encourage young people from all walks of life that there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” Lucchii said of the track. “That no matter what you have gone through or the lows you have had as a person – there is a legacy waiting to be made for everyone.”

Lucchii’s “Legacy” featuring Stefan Crane arrived by way of Music High Court Recordings on November 13th.
