Orchestra Beautifully Covers Flume’s “Tiny Cities”

Flume is undoubtedly one of the most talented producers of our time. Ever since his the release of his self-titled debut studio album “Flume” in 2012, he has only gotten better.

In 2016, the Australian producer released his sophomore studio LP, “Skin“, which solidified his place as one of the most innovative music makers in the industry. The project brought in a wide range of talent from KaiVince StaplesAlunaGeorge, and Vic Mensa, all which complemented Flume’s style beautifully. Rightfully so, this led to “Skin” winning the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album in 2017.

While there are a variety of “Skin”-inspired remixes, one remix stands out from the rest. Recently, we stumbled upon a video of The Chamber Orchestra at Westridge School in Pasadena, California, who created a beautiful rendition of “Tiny Cities“, a track featuring Beck.

As seen in the video below, the song translates well into an intricate string heavy arrangement, with woodwinds, light percussion, and delicate piano sounds to blend it all together. Even without Beck’s beautifully composed lyrics, this orchestrated version of “Tiny Cities” is a justified tribute to one of Flume’s best masterpieces.

We love hearing Flume’s music in this form, and hope that we’ll be hearing more sounds like this. As of late, the producer has been teasing fans with tour videos and a campaign alongside Greenpeace to save the great barrier reef, so we can only hope this means new music soon!

Give the original “Tiny Cities” a listen to yourself, and see how great this orchestra did.

An Ultra Singapore Attendee Was Fined $10,000 For Stomping On A Security Guard’s Foot

As many of us know well already, the security guards at festivals are often hired for a vast range of roles in order to ensure that the event itself runs smoothly. One of their many tasks is to observe foot traffic, but what happened to officer Sergeant Alex Zhang Zhengyang during Ultra Singapore in 2016 was an incident that required him to “observe foot traffic” in a more literal way. An attendee by the name of Wayne Liang had an invasive encounter with the Sergeant which surprisingly resulted in a $10,000 fine for the party-goer.

The former Chinese citizen, now residing in Australia, was heavily intoxicated at the time of the confrontation with the officer. It has been reported that his blood alcohol level was 143mg/100ml! During the altercation, the Sergeant had clearly identified himself to the incoherent party-goer as an officer of the law. Liang continued to reply “so what” and pursued to stop on his foot, resulting in an arrest.

During the trial, the prosecution wanted Liang to be placed in prison for at least four weeks; however, the District Judge Kessler Soh immediately rejected the motion. The law-breaker’s lawyer stated, “there should be no dispute that [Liang’s] judgment and memory were impaired at the material time.” Even with a well-put statement, the attendee chose to plead guilty on August 7, ahead of his trial, despite his original intent to fight the charges against him.

With everything said and done, we hope that Liang’s actions will be used as an example of what-not-to-do when interacting with a police officer. The fine that you may face due to such actions can be used for much better and more proactive activities – we can guarantee that!

Tavi Castro – Ghost ft Sarah Kienstra

Tavi Castro – Ghost ft Sarah Kienstra

Amsterdam based producer Tavi Castro emerged onto the dance music scene after signing with Spinnin’ Records in 2016. His debut single ‘Survive’ went viral and earned the support of A-List DJs such as Martin Garrix, Tiësto and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. 2017 was a huge year with Tavi playing at his first Tomorrowland and getting his first iTunes charting. To follow up his previous single ‘Moonlight’ (still sitting on iTunes Top 10 in the Netherlands) he comes back with his newest single ‘Ghost‘.

‘Ghost’ features the powerful vocals of Dutch singer Sarah Kienstra and combines a multitude of musical elements. Featuring a trap beat and hints of future bass and hardstlye, the Savage Mix turns ‘Ghost’ into a haunting dance track. The track also comes the Human Mix which presents itself as a calmer, radio friendly version. With the perfect balance of calming and explosive energy, this song is one not to pass up. Listen to the Savage Mix of ‘Ghost’ out on Tavi Records below.

Review Of Ephwurd’s LA Takeover


On December 15, 2017, Datsik and Bais Haus, collectively known as Ephwurd, took over the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles for a night full of raging tunes and fun. The duo is topping off a monumental year full of major festival appearances and shows.

Ephwurd brought along rising artists Luca Lush, Whipped Cream, and JVMPKICKS to open the show. JVMPKICKS got the crowd moving and shuffling from the get-go with a bumping bass house set. Whipped Cream went hard playing a mix of trap, dubstep, and house. And of course, the famously blue-haired Luca Lush threw down a fun set as always.

Ephwurd really sealed the deal on a fantastic night, though. Their high-energy set included tons of great music alongside some amazing visuals. Their track selection was phenomenal, featuring a lot of the crazy house music they’re known for, but also some heavier tracks and even future bass. They clearly put a lot of thought and craft into their live sets and have a lot of fun with it. And the crowd was loving it.

Since their inception in 2015, Ephwurd has been going non-stop and we’re excited to see what 2018 has in store for them. Surely they’ll be adorning festival lineups throughout the year so keep your eyes peeled if they’re coming near you. You’ll surely have a great time.

Claptone Hits Corona Electric Beach: Exclusive Interview

Hailing from Berlin, Germany, the masked DJ known only as Claptone is set to headline the first edition of Corona Electric Beach in 2018. This 21+ event on January 13th in Ft. Lauderdale, FL is free to attend if you RSVP online ahead of time.

Corona’s traveling event series brings “beats to the beach” with some of the biggest names in dance music, and they are kicking off a new year with the top ranked house DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. EDMTunes got an exclusive interview with the mysterious entertainer who talked about what house music means to him, his incredibly busy tour schedule, and surprises for his Corona Electric Beach performance, including tracks from a new album.

Claptone Corona Electric Beach Interview

The name Claptone has become synonymous with white gloves, a top hat and of course the intriguing golden mask. Could you explain the significance behind the mask and what it means to you?

Claptone: I do hope that my fans and friends around the globe use their ears more-so than their sense of sight. Believe it or not, I am a musician and not a swimwear model.
House music is a very spiritual thing for people all over the world. It means different things to different people. You’ve been voted the highest House artist on the 2017 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll at # 69 AND you have won the Ibiza DJ Award for House music the last three years in a row! What does House music mean to you?
Trends in music come and go year after year, but somehow, house music keeps on kicking. Twisting, turning, rebirthing and readjusting, it continuously takes on new forms and styles, while retaining the groove that seems to be eternal. Virtuosity and theory take a back seat to emotion and feeling – unbridled creativity. Incredible things seems to happen when a bass drum meets a baseline. How I love it dearly. But then again I love music as a whole.
Jazz is also a very spiritual musical style. Your remix of Gregory Porter’s ‘Liquid Spirit’ is credited for the commercial success of Porter’s album.  What connections do you see between Jazz and House music and how does it feel to know your work supported Gregory Porter and his success?

In the studio and in my DJ sets, I look to create a melting kaleidoscope of influences and styles. I am of the opinion that good music is good music, regardless of what genre that others place it in. In my remix work I connected with acts as diverse as Pet Shop Boys, Gorillaz, Gregory Proter, Faithless and The Wombats to name just a few. I dare to say I am responsible for all their worldwide success, or am I?

You must be one of the most booked artists in the world right now. Your tour schedule is INSANE! You have 5 shows in the last 2 days of the year, and they are all over the world! You’ll be traveling from the U.S. to Germany to Indonesia, back to the U.S. and finally to Colombia. How do you keep up your energy and stamina? A secret Claptone workout routine and diet?

Growing up, my mother told me that if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life. It turns out that she was correct. Mindmelt, timetravel, private jets and champagne help as well.

On January 13th you’ll be in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for Corona Electric Beach at America’s Backyard. CEB has hosted names like Felix Da Housecat, Chocolate Puma and Shiba San. How do you feel to be chosen to headline their first event of 2018? Without giving too much away, what can we expect from your set at Corona Electric Beach? Any new collabs or remixes in the work that might be finished by the new year?

2017 was a year that I will not soon forget, however I am incredibly excited to jump into 2018 with even more energy. Truth be told, I have a special place in my heart for Florida. Lovely people, perfect weather and vibrant sunsets that seem to last forever. This coming year will bring a new Album from yours truly, many songs and tracks, some of which I will test out at Corona Electric Beach.

Everyone knows you’re a House music producer out of Berlin, but that’s about all we know. Wouldn’t it be a great New Years surprise for your fans to reveal your identity in this interview? 😉

They call me CLAPTONE.

If you’re in the Ft. Lauderdale area, don’t forget to RSVP to this free show! Start your new year off right with Claptone at Corona Electric Beach on January 13th. The event runs from 2-8 PM at America’s Backyard.

Darude Shares ‘Waiting For Winter’ Remix Video


Gabriel & Dresden feat. Jan Burton- Waiting For Winter (Darude Remix)

It has certainly been an exciting year for trance legends Gabriel & Dresden. On December 15th, they released their first album in eleven years called The Only Road. They just opened for Above & Beyond in Los Angeles and have more tour stops to follow in 2018. And with more tour stops, will come more new music… even a remix from ‘Sandstorm’ maestro Darude.

Yesterday, Darude shared a video of his remix on Gabriel & Dresden’s ‘Waiting For Winter’. What’s interesting here is both artists have recently made a comeback on to the scene. In the video, which is close to two and half hours long, goes through each part of the track while Darude explains what he did to certain parts of the song. The remix gives ‘Waiting For Winter’ an energetic twist that’s covered with strong trance synths. The release date hasn’t been confirmed, but by judging the video, it should be out soon. Check out Darude’s remix video below.

EDMTunes 2018 Predictions

edmtunes 2018 predictions As 2018 begins, it is time for us to make our predictions about the year ahead. Our article on the big trends of 2017 accounted for producers entering the pop realm, the popularity of aliases and the rise of psytrance. There are so many moving pieces in the dance music scene that it is hard to be certain what exactly will happen. But we have three big guesses about what you can expect in 2018.

1. Dominance of Boutique Labels/Festivals

As the large festival scene reaches its limit, smaller, more focused labels and festivals are popping up. And their fans are intense. Both Dirtybird Records and Desert Hearts Records are making waves in the American scene. Desert Hearts, led by Mikey Lion, preaches the mantra House. Techno. Love. The Crew hosts a yearly Desert Hearts Festival in the Desert and recently hosted a City Hearts Festival in downtown L.A. Led by Claude VonStroke, Dirtybird focuses on a “tech funk” sound. Their Dirtybird Campout blends a music festival with a summer camp for a unique experience. These labels that focus on feel-good sounds and eclectic events are really catching fire.

2. More DJs as TV/Movie/YouTube Stars

As EDM culture and DJs become more popular, shows like ‘What Would Diplo Do?’ start to appear. With DJs like MarshmelloHardwell, and Skrillex becoming household names, production studios are starting to see profitability. Whether it’s on television, in the movies, or on a YouTube series, don’t be surprised if your favorite DJ is the topic.

3. Tiesto Returns To Trance

Anyone who remembers Tiesto‘s earlier years knows that he can produce incredible trance. On his own or as half of Gouryella with Ferry Corsten, Tiesto was known specifically for his Trance music. As trance continues to rise in popularity around the world, many artists are beginning to produce it again. Arty‘s Alpha 9 alias is a perfect example. Will Tiesto be tempted to return to his roots?

What will really be the big stories of 2018? Only time will tell.
