These 8 Tracks Defined an Epic EDC Orlando 2017

As always, EDC Orlando was an absolute blast. Between production design, atmosphere, artist lineup, and crowd, this festival is the total package.

In regards to U.S. festivals, I think everyone would agree that EDC Las Vegas has the best production value of any festival, hands-down. And the thing with EDC Orlando is that it has that exact same, high quality production at a fraction of the cost. From the Kinetic Gaia mainstage to the Circuit Grounds to even the Boombox Art Car, it’s all amazing. I would have to say the Boombox Art Car was the underrated point for the festival. Even though it wasn’t one of the mainstages it was still pumping out great music both days.

And as always, this festival had a killer lineup. Whether you’re a lover of the mainstage or of trance or bass music, there were plenty of great artists there to provide you with the music that you love. For me, the overall stand-out set of the weekend would have to undoubtedly be Kaskade‘s sunset set. From ‘4am’ to ‘Raining’ to ‘Eyes’ to everything inbetween, he played all of his old classics and it was exactly what I and everyone else in the rest of the crowd wanted. With the sun setting in the background this was the perfect vibe for the perfect setting.

ZABO – Mantra

It seems that Canada is the place to be on the lookout for the latest young talent in the bass music community at the moment. Over the last several years, producers from all over the vast country have been popping up with new and unique styles of bass production. Obviously you’ve got the firmly established guys like Excision, Datsik and Snails, who all hail from the Great North. More recently we’ve seen the breakthrough of 22-year-old Rezz, and now we’ve got a monster new bass track called “Mantra” from 23-year-old Toronto based producer ZABO.

The Rezz vibe is immediately apparent in “Mantra,” and could easily slot right into one of her dark, house-infused bass sets. If you check out some of his recent work such as his previous releases “Drown,” and “Grieve,” the dark, moody sound design is definitely there, but ZABO still owns a style to himself. Check out the track on Soundcloud below, and if you’re digging it as much as we are, click that little button below the track for your “Saucy Free Download.”

Ruben De Ronde & Donata – Stand In My Way

The name Ruben De Ronde is almost as synonymous with the Armada label as Armin van Buuren. Ruben not only releases a ton of his own music on Armada, but also helps facilitate the label’s day-to-day operations.

A name unfamiliar to many trance fans, however, is Donata Kramarz. As the vocalist and guitarist for the band NOSOYO, Kramarz and her partner Daïm de Rijke create soulful indie rock. Their hit song ‘Resonate‘ shows off the duo’s impressive talent. Last year De Ronde and Kramarz sat down for a writing session and the results speak for themselves. After releasing ‘Open Wide’ in late 2016, the duo followed up with their newest release, ‘Stand In My Way.’

‘Stand In My Way’ perfectly blends together De Ronde’s progressive tendencies with Donata’s enchanting voice. Soothing piano chords underly the open atmosphere of the track, filling the space between the lyrics masterfully. The song breaks down with a high synth line that repeats a simple yet beautiful melody, then drops back into the vocals. Throughout the song Donata tells the story of a toxic relationship, where the narrators partner brings “out the worst of my soul.” Thankfully she understands “it’s time for us to let go,” giving the listener some form of closure. Although Donata is an Indie Rock artist, her voice feels like it belongs in the trance and progressive scene.

This track comes off as hauntingly serene. It incorporates stunning minimalist instrumentation that still makes the track feel full to the point of bursting. After adding in the airy female vocals, ‘Stand In My Way’ projects a soothing feeling even though the subject matter is very dark.

Listen to the track below and experience the enthralling musical project by Donata and Ruben De Ronde. You can also check out their first release, ‘Open Wide’ on YouTube.

Kesha Takes On Marshmello and Khalid’s ‘Silence’

Kesha has been through a roller coaster of a ride for the past decade. The ‘Tik Tok’ star exploded onto the scene in 2009 and was known for her signature “speech-like/auto-tune” sound. With a huge number of electro pop singles that catapulted her into instant fame, it looked like there was no stopping her.

However this fame was followed by a dip in her career that included legal troubles and sexual abuse allegations against her producer Dr. Luke. She was unable to produce music for a long period of time, but after an outpour of support from artists including Zedd, Lady Gaga, and Adele her career slowly headed upward.

2017 marked one hell of a return for Kesha. After finally being able to leave her former contract, she released her third studio album Rainbow. Following a highly successful tour and album release this year, she’s back with a captivating cover of Marshmello and Khalid’s ‘Silence’. 

By visually and musically contrasting her former “party-girl” image, we get a glimpse at a mature version of Kesha. In the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge she performs the songs in a floral glistening outfit and flowing soft pink hair. Preceding her raw and emotional rendition of ‘Silence’ is an upbeat performance of her single ‘Learn to Let Go’. She is tender in her delivery and shows us what the new Kesha has to offer. By giving the original song justice, we can expect her to earn Marshmello and Khalid’s approval. Watch and take a listen to the performance below.

Galactic Marvl – All I Think About

The mysterious Galactic Marvl artist (duo?) has been cooking up a storm of remixes of late, so much so that we barely have time to continue debate on his? identity. From trap to future bass, this producer has been pumping out some serious quality music. Now Marvl is returning to originals with the new single “All I Think About”. As it turns out this single is also the lead single for an entire album due out in 2018.

“All I Think About” features crooning vocals that hook you with the track’s refrain of the title. The smooth vocals quickly pick up and lead to an atmospheric and groovy future bass style breakdown that will have you belting out lyrics after a few listens. Like many of Galactic Marvl’s tunes, the track has a Flume-like quality to it but with a slightly darker edge to it. Based on the first single, we can’t wait to hear more of this debut album! Check out the new single below and grab your copy today.

Post Malone – I Fall Apart (SLANDER Remix)

Post Malone – I Fall Apart (SLANDER Remix)

Trap duo Slander just released their remix for ‘I Fall Apart‘ by everyone’s current favorite rapper, Post Malone. Slander turned the emotional ballad into an equally heart-wrenching future bass offering. The remix opens with the same down-tempo piano lead as the original as Post Malone’s quivering vocals adorn the instrumentals. The build-up leads to a synth-heavy drop while Post Malone’s “I fall apart” line is chopped up.

Post Malone released his debut album Stoney last year to wide critical acclaim. Many producers have remixed the lead single, ‘Congratulations,’ while Slander decided to go a different route and remix another breakout track on the album. Slander kept the integrity of the heartfelt song while putting their own touches on it.

This remix shows the duo continuing the lighter direction set by their original track ‘Superhuman’ (feat. Eric Leva), which was released a few months ago with huge success. Stream Slander’s remix below and follow the link for a free download.

Kaskade Is Officially Releasing His Very Own Christmas Album

Move over Buble, we got ourselves a new Christmas king in town. While hosting Pasquale Rotella’s Night Owl Radio 111, Kaskade brought Christmas joy early with an exciting announcement. He will be releasing a Christmas album of his own called Kaskade Christmas, and it will be released later on this month.

However, the legendary producer is not new to the Christmas scene. Back in 2005, he released his groovy and festive remix of White Christmas by Bing Cosby that will always put us in the mood to decorate Christmas trees and deck the halls.

“I know it’s only November. Is it too late to early to talk about Christmas? Yes it probably is. But what I want to share with you – I have a massive announcement. I have a brand new album coming out this month called Kaskade Christmas, and it’s my take on some of those classic Christmas songs with a few originals that I wrote that kind of capture the mood of the season.”

Come on, it’s really never too early to play Christmas music. Even though we can guarantee the remixes will be amazing, we can’t wait to hear the original Christmas tunes he puts out.

UnitedMasters Takes $70 Million To Make ‘The Modern Record Label’

Image result for steve stoute united masters

The many parts that make up the music business are somewhat complicated to understand. There are royalties, contracts, partnerships, and so much more that go into an artists’ career than we think. Well, at least in the “traditional” sense. Ever since the decline of CD’s sales transitioned into a digital, streaming age of music consumption, the overall landscape of this traditional model has changed and has been for a long time. Record labels were once the gateway to success for potential artists, but not anymore. They have become irrelevant, unnecessary, and frankly a waste of time.

More and more artists are taking the road less traveled and nixing record deals with greedy labels to take matters into their own hands. Two prime and well-known examples are the immense independent success of Chance the Rapper and Joey Bada$$. Record labels are no longer functional because artists now have the technology and ability to record at home, along with the power of the internet to promote themselves. This calls for a new kind of enterprise to hone this new era into something huge.

The former president of Interscope Records and CEO of ad agency Translation, Steve Stoute (pictured above) gathered $70 million to create UnitedMasters. It is a new ‘artists services‘ company that charges a competitive rate to distribute an artists’ music across platforms like Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud, then split the royalties and lets the artists keep the rights to their master recordings. Then the data will go back to UnitedMasters for them to analyze fan listening patterns in order to more efficiently target listeners for ad’s, merchandise, concert tickets etc. This allows for the artist to maintain their creative freedom while monetizing their craft in a way that benefits them and their fans.

Where did this $70 million come from? Well, let’s just say some of the top dogs in the investing game want in on this too. The impressive list of investors includes one part of Google’s corporate umbrella called Alphabet20th Century Fox, and the well-known venture firm Andreessen Horowitz. UnitedMasters will operate as a subsidiary of Stoute’s current ad agency Translation Enterprises, and will essentially be infiltrating consumption in a completely new way. They are changing the way artist’s connect with their fans- i.e taking out the irrelevance of record deals- to replace it with new technology and operations.

This is a statement of their core product beliefs on the UnitedMasters’ blog from Jack Krawczyk:

“We believe that the music industry should be built by transparently connecting artists with their fans: understanding musical influences, cultural preferences, and general listening behavior. We believe that listening to fans that are based on how, when and where they engage with music tells us about the types of experiences they prefer. Building these insights into a profile that an artist and their team can easily understand can open up new doors to inform how to grow their career. We believe the future of music is for the artist to have transparency into their fans’ data, where their promotional money is being spent, and to have a majority stake in the ownership of their recorded music. We believe that the future of music is a mixture of machines that listen to behaviors and marketing teams who can translate those insights into creative direction with clear paths to maximizing the impact of their art. The products we build enable disparate data sets to come together in order to reach fans directly, publish insights, syndicate content and present new opportunities for monetization in building the future of an artist’s career.” 

This is the start of something completely new and seemingly has the utmost potential to change the direction of the entire industry as we know it, we just have to wait and see. You can read more about UnitedMasters here.
