Armin van Buuren, deadmau5 and Eric Prydz Added as KAOS Residents

KAOS just doubled down on their electronic music programming.

KAOS is the biggest buzz word uttered by everyone in the Las Vegas club scene in 2019, and their latest announcement will add plenty of electronic music fans to that crowd. The new Palms Casino Resort superclub has revealed residencies with none other than Armin van Buuren, deadmau5 and Eric Prydz.

Previously announced KAOS residents included Kaskade, Skrillex and Marshmello. Whereas van Buuren will likely accompany them with more Vegas-friendly performances, Prydz and deadmau5 provide a draw for fans of more sophisticated dance music. Residencies for Breathe Carolina, Brooks, Cheat Codes, DJ Politik and Vice have also been announced.

Electronic music headliners weren’t the only artists included in the announcement. Latin talents J. Balvin, Bad Bunny and Ozuna join the likes of Cardi B and Travis Scott as residents.

Between its 73,000-square-foot dayclub and 29,000-square-foot nightclub, KAOS looks to become a prominent fixture of the Las Vegas Strip’s vibrant nightlife scene. An outward-facing LED screen (said to be the largest in the city) will display a visualizer that interacts with the sound playing back from the speakers inside.

The grand opening of KAOS is slated for April 5th, 6th and 7th. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the nightclub website.

GRiZ Teams Up with Wiz Khalifa and a Choir on Soulful Tune “Find My Own Way”

GRiZ just wants to make happy music for the people.

If you were worried about future funk phenom GRiZ during his year long hiatus of 2018, his newest release ought to dispel any notion that the 28-year-old has lost any of his lustrous trademark energy. “Find My Own Way” featuring Wiz Khalifa is the latest in a string of promotional tracks leading up to the release of his sixth studio album, Ride Waves.

Continuing this theme of positivity from the other lead tracks (“It Gets Better,” “Im Good,” and “A New Day”), “Find My Own Way” is a soulful, feelgood song slated as closer on the album’s 14-song tracklist. Its artwork seems to indicate as much, depicting a lucid yellow brick road leading from a wondrous, colorful world that we can only hope mirrors the soundscapes comprising his upcoming project.

The track kicks off with playful piano scales that dance their way through the songs entirety, before greeting the listener with signature sax-squeals from GRiZ and mic greeting from its emcee. The Pennsylvania rapper opens with autotune-assisted harmony on a track that finds GRiZ’ production largely dancing in the background behind the more prominently featured vocals. In addition to Khalifa, Griz also enlisted a full choir to deliver the hook, reiterating the soul and gospel touched on the album’s previous singles.

The five-minute-long track’s production is purely instrumental, as the keys and brass work as accents to an already uplifting cadence and message from its vocalists. The song also serves as a showcase of Griz’ ability to make his energy communicable through his art, and it’s so infectious that is sometimes overrides any of its shortcomings.

“Find My Own Way” by GRiZ and Wiz Khalifa serves as an effective album closer in what’s looks to be a joyously fun and colorful ride on Ride Waves, due out April 5th. Stream or download the single across platforms here.

Deadmau5 Gets Twitch Channel Reinstated

After the Twitch suspension and deleting his channel, Joel ‘Deadmau5’ Zimmerman’s channel is now back up on Twitch with all the 875 videos available!

Deadmau5 has a Twitch channel with a big following, having his fans tune in regularly to watch him stream making music or playing video games. Above that, his channel served as a hub hosting about 875 videos filled with musical content and game-play. The Reddit comment section seem happy, and to quote the user JillseyWillsey;

All the production sessions, the (almost) masterclass in Touch Designer, the hilarious gaming moments, and Joel just talking to us off the cuff. I thought he deleted it all and I was SO sad! Can’t wait to get off work and revisit some of those rare jewels!

The Twitch channel served as a home where all of his fans came together. Even though Deadmau5 mentioned finding a different platform to stream on, losing out on all the endless hours of content would be a shame. Just having his Twitch channel around with the videos can help a lot of people learn the programs he uses and his creative process, while also hosting entertaining videos.

LMFAO Reach Settlement in Lawsuit over "Party Rock Anthem" Lyrics

The 2013 dispute with Rick Ross is finally over.

“Everyday I’m Shufflin'” are three words that anyone who was alive in 2011 will surely remember. The words, spoken by LMFAO right before the drop of their hit, “Party Rock Anthem,” were memorable and catchy, and undoubtedly stuck in the entire world’s head, along with the distinct and very shuffle-able melody of the chart-topping single. 

However, five years prior to the release, a similar phrase was uttered by hip-hop boss Rick Ross. “Everyday I’m Hustlin'” was the repetitive and extremely memorable hook to his 2006 gangsta-rap anthem, simply titled, “Hustlin’.” In 2013, Ross filed a lawsuit against LMFAO, claiming that the lyric in “Party Rock Anthem” is derivative of “Hustlin’,” and that the song was stolen by LMFAO.

Six years later, the lawsuit has finally been settled. After initially throwing the suit out after ruling that the phrase was not covered by copyright, U.S. District Judge Kathleen M. Williams removed Ross from the suit. Copyright claims could still come from Jermaine Jackson and Andrew Harr, the “Hustlin'” co-writers and producers after that point. Ross opted to have them re-open the suit in 2018, and so they did.

Before the next trial could come to fruition, however, LMFAO and the co-producers of “Hustlin'” finally reached a settlement. Details of the settlement are still unknown.

Radius Clause Lawsuit against Coachella Thrown Out by Judge

Coachella parent company Goldenvoice wins the case against Soul’d Out Festival.

In May of 2018, promoters behind Portland, Oregon music festival Soul’d Out filed a lawsuit against Coachella parent company, Goldenvoice. The dispute was over Coachella’s strict radius clause, which mandates that artists performing at the festival may not perform in neighboring states or counties over a period of December 15 to May 1. Haytham Abdulhadi and Nicholas Harris, the promoters behind Soul’d Out, felt that this radius clause hurt their own festival, which takes place in Portland in mid-April.

According to Billboard, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman dismissed the case against Goldenvoice with prejudice, meaning that Abdulhadi and Harris cannot refile the suit. To the Soul’d Out promoters’ dismay, Mosman found no injury to the duo’s festival, or the artists involved. 

Shawn Trell, the chief operating officer of Goldenvoice, was clearly pleased with the result, stating that it allows Coachella to maintain its unique lineups and creativity as a festival, while preventing competitors from piggy-backing off its success. 

The lawsuit was a failure for Soul’d Out, but it does put the heat on Coachella and other large festivals with restrictive radius clauses. The suit led to Coachella’s radius clauses being published and publicly available, which was met with opposition from Goldenvoice, who feel it is a breach of confidentiality. Regardless, the lawsuit puts the spotlight on restrictions from large festivals and promoters, and will undoubtedly not be the last of its kind. 

Abdulhadi and Harris may not refile the lawsuit, but have 30 days to appeal the ruling.

Mushrooms Could be the Next Alternative Medicine for Dementia

 Mushrooms to the Rescue

When parents say “Eat your vegetables”, now is the time to listen. Scientists recently discovered that 300g of mushrooms could cut the risk of mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Let’s face it, we aren’t getting younger.

People with MCI have lower levels of amino acid and therefore more inclined to natural brain decline and dementia. Symptoms include forgetfulness and reduced language and attention skills. To clarify, this condition is a set of symptoms rather than a specific disease. It is between the realm of normal age-related decline and dementia, though people with it are more likely to suffer worse mental conditions than expected. There is a silver lining though. Mushrooms contain the amino acid that the body can’t make for itself–one that is vital for people with MCI.

Researchers at the National University of Singapore studied over 600 Chinese people over 60 during the course of six years. Their diet, health, and brain functions were tested after accumulated damage over time. Those that ate more than two portions of cooked mushrooms reported 50% less risk for MCI.

“This correlation is surprising and encouraging”-Feng Lei, researcher

It is a common ingredient that a portion of the population may not like. However, even in small doses it can prove to be effective in helping people carry out their daily activities and improve mental abilities.

Mushrooms contain ergothioneine (ET), a unique antioxidant and anti-inflammatory unable to be synthesized by humans. This is a compound low in people with MCI. Whether it be white button, oyster, shiitake, dried, canned, or golden mushrooms, they work.

Mr. Feng and his team hope for more developing research on this study. Causative link or coincidence? Only time will tell. This research has been published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Full Lineup for Above & Beyond's Miami Music Week Show at RC Cola Plant Announced

Seven Lions, Spencer Brown, and other Anjunabeats favorites join the party.

On Thursday, March 28th, Anjunabeats label heads Above & Beyond will hit the RC Cola Plant for Miami Music Week once again. The trio have just announced that a slew of Anjunabeats all stars and up-and-comers will be joining them for the big show.

Special guest and crowd favorite Seven Lions was already previously announced for the show, to the delight of many diehard Anjunabeats fans. Joining him will be label veteran Oliver Smith, who just released his latest single “Solina” in January. Smith has been releasing music on Anjunabeats since the label’s inception and has proven to be a fan favorite time and time again. 

Spencer Brown, another Anjunabeats mainstay, will also be featured. Brown released his debut album, Illusion Of Perfection on Anjunabeats back in 2018, along with a collaboration with Above & Beyond, entitled “Long Way From Home” featuring RBBTS. The San Francisco talent will bring plenty of recent releases, and possibly even some new unreleased tunes to the table at RC Cola Plant. 

In addition to Smith and Brown, two artists from sister label Anjunadeep will be featured for the Miami Music Week showcase. Ben Böhmer will be performing a brand new live set. Böhmer had two tracks featured on this year’s Anjunadeep 10 compilation. “Little Lights” rounds out disc one of the compilation on a downtempo electronica kick, and “In Memoriam” brings a broody, deep progressive mood to the second disc. Both tracks will undoubtedly be featured in Böhmer’s live set.

Rounding out the lineup is label newcomer Qrion, who recently had her first Anjunadeep track released as part of the Anjunadeep 10 compilation. “Sapporo,” a collaborative effort with Spencer Brown, adds a distinct, darkly melodic touch to disc one of the album. Qrion’s deep and atmospheric style will provide the perfect opening set for the night. 

Full lineup announcement. 

Anjunaholics will certainly be pleased with this full lineup announcement. Covering everything from deep house to progressive trance to whatever Seven Lions has up his sleeve, this night will properly showcase everything that Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep have to offer. The RC Cola Plant show comes just ahead of two other label events for Miami Music week, with Anjunadeep Open Air: Miami on March 30th, and a show at the Delano Beach Club on March 31st. 

Jono, Paavo, and Tony’s next release, “There’s Only You”, will come just in time for the RC Cola Plant showcase. The track completes the Common Ground Companion EP, which was released as an accompaniment to their #3 Billboard Top 100 album, Common Ground. Above & Beyond’s recent collaboration with fellow trance legend Armin van Buuren titled “Show Me Love” has already been igniting dance floors worldwide as well, and will likely be a massive hit at Miami Music Week. 

Tickets for Above & Beyond’s Miami Music Week showcase at RC Cola Plant are available now, and can be purchased here.

AirPods & Other Wireless Headphones Pose Cancer Risk

AirPods, the wireless earphones, perfect for the gym and travel, are under scrutiny after recent news that they may cause cancer. While there is still much more research to be done, over 200 scientist have signed a petition, warning that the tech could lead to negative health effects. The petition, signed by researchers from 42 different countries, has been directed to the United Nations and World Health Organizations.

Bluetooth, the AirPods and all wireless headphones’ main source of connection to your cell phone, is the center of recent debate. Basically, Bluetooth wirelessly transmits data using electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radio waves. Researchers believe that these waves, at close proximity to one’s head, may be potentially dangerous and cancer causing.

“Placement in the ear canal exposes tissues in the head to relatively high levels of radio-frequency radiation.” – Jerry Phillips

Even worse, scientist state that extended EMF exposure can cause neurological disorders and DNA damage. In all, having the set of earphones on, transmits unhealthy microwave-like waves through your brain. These warnings are similar to what we heard several years ago regarding cell phones omitting high levels of radiation.

Over 45 million AirPods sold since launch and a second generation are expected this year. Additionally, wireless headphones are extremely popular because of their Bluetooth technology. More research ought to be done to understand the long term side effects with this relatively new technology. Additionally, are the hundereds of other Bluetooth products we own safe? Those trusty wired headphones might be the safer option for those concerned.

Zeds Dead Deliver Sinister Dubstep Remix of "bury a friend" by Billie Eilish

You haven’t heard Billie Eilish’s 2019 single like this before.

Billie Eilish made waves once again with the release of “bury a friend” early in the year – waves that have now struck the surface of the EDM world. Zeds Dead have delivered a dubstep remix of the single that offers up a poignant fusion of both camps’ challenging signature styles.

This is by no means uncharted territory for Zeds Dead, a duo comprised of Dylan “DC” Mamid and Zachary “Hooks” Rapp-Rovan. Longtime fans might remember their remix of “Eyes On Fire” by Blue Foundation – another endeavor in which they fitted subversive vocals with dark and reverberant bass lines.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Eilish rose to fame in 2016 following the release of a single titled “Ocean Eyes.” Having released a debut EP titled Don’t Smile at Me the following summer, her first studio-length album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? is due out sometime this month.

Zeds Dead boast a career that extends much further back than the dubstep explosion which made them a household name after 2010. Following several cornerstone releases on Mad Decent, they launched their own imprint called Deadbeats in 2016.

Zeds Dead will resume touring with a performance at Soho Studios in Miami on March 28th ahead of an Ultra Music Festival appearance the following day.
