Claude VonStroke Releases New Single, "My Love Check"

The dancefloor vibe is taken off Carl Craig’s Detroit Love Vol. II.

Claude VonStroke just released his latest single, “My Love Check”. The track dropped just in time for Movement Festival in the producer’s hometown of Detroit, where he fulfilled the lifelong dream of headlining last year, and is featured in Detroit legend Carl Craig‘s Detroit Love Vol. II Compilation. 

Released along with a black-and-white music video, all shot on location in Detroit, “My Love Check” showcases a minimal house approach that bridges the old with the new. Groovy drums create a dance floor-ready groove, while pads, synths continuously twist and trade places, resulting in a progressive vibe.

“My Love Check” from the new Carl Craig compilation is about my love for longtime hometown Detroit” revealed the Dirtybird label boss. “This video was shot by one of my best friends, Anthony Garth. We came up in the film business together in Detroit and Anthony shot my first music video in a laundromat. […] Anthony’s Black and White footage along with The Bens’ pixel sorting effect combine the classic with the contemporary, something Carl Craig has always been so good at achieving with his music for so many years.”

Claude VonStroke has been a household name in the electronic music scene for more than a decade. The house and techno producer formed his label Dirtybird Records in 2005, and a year after he released his debut album, Beware Of The Bird

Is Skrillex About to Play a Surprise Set at EDC Las Vegas 2019?

Tweets from Skrillex and Pasquale Rotella suggest that he is.

EDC Las Vegas is known to host surprise headliners more often than not, and this year the festival’s organizers appear to be treating fans to a guest that hasn’t graced their stages in years. If tweets between Skrillex and Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella are any indicator, the Los Angeles DJ/producer will take the stage tonight, May 18th.

On May 17th, Rotella tweeted that an hour time slot on day two at EDC’s circuitGROUNDS stage would be given to an artist who hasn’t played the festival “in a longgg minute.” Today, Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) fired off a tweet of his own suggesting that he may be the act.

Moore’s last EDC Las Vegas appearance was brief; he came out for a short time during Marshmello‘s time slot at the 2016 edition. He has continued to play other iterations of the festival. Most recently, he delivered an unreleased ID-heavy set at EDC Japan.

Neither Skrillex nor Insomniac have officially announced that he will be the surprise headliner at the time of writing.

Dillon Francis, Cray and More Billed for Fortnite's First IRL Summer Block Party

Fortnite is expanding outside of in-game events.

Marshmello‘s in-game Fortnite concert was the talk of the EDM world earlier in the year, and now it appears that the game is exploring actual, physical music events as well. Epic Games has announced a gathering called Fortnite Summer Block Party at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and among the headliners are some of the hottest DJs on the market.

Representing EDM at the two-day event will be Dillon Francis, Cray and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. Among the highest-profile performers will be Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco and singer Jordan Fisher.

Epic Games were by no means the first developers to experiment with in-game music events. A few weeks before Fortnite‘s Party in Pleasant Park, Minecraft billed numerous DJs for a digital gathering called Fire Festival.

Pre-registration for Fortnite Summer Block Party is closed at the time of writing. The event will run from Saturday, June 15th to Sunday, June 16th.

Bonanza Campout, Headlined By DJ Snake, G-Eazy and Empire of the Sun, Forced to Cancel

The festival was originally scheduled for June 21st to June 23rd in Heber, Utah.

The fourth annual edition Bonanza Campout in Heber, Utah has been canceled. Organizers apologized to attendees in an official announcement on May 8th, explaining the sudden cancellation was due to officials refusing to grant a liquor license, and giving information in regards to ticket and lodging refunds. As read in the official statement: “Due to being denied the necessary licensing and permits from Wasatch County and the Utah DABC, Bonanza Campout has made the decision to cancel this year’s event.” 

“Our team is committed to providing top-tier fan experiences and works year-round to curate and produce a world-class festival environment,” added the team behind Bonanza Campout. “After reviewing all alternative options, we have come to the conclusion that there is no possible way to relocate the festival and still provide both artists and attendees with the same level of production and fan experience that Bonanza Campout has become known for.”

Bonanza Campout was to be held June 21st to June 23rd. DJ Snake, rapper G-Eazy and Australian duo Empire of the Sun headlined the impressive lineup which showed a fairly big diversity. Rappers Machine Gun Kelly, Smokepurrp and Blackbear were scheduled to perform, as well as acts such as Chromeo, Whethan, Manila Killa, Big Wild and AlunaGeorge
