Boogie T & GRiZ Drop New Collab Plus Remixes by Rusko and More

GRiZ and Boogie T have a stacked EP surrounding their new collaboration.

GRiZ may have just come off the release of his sixth studio album, but that didn’t stop him and Boogie T from dropping their collaboration. Better yet, the two made an entire EP out of their new offering “Supa Fly” enlisting Rusko, Gentleman’s Club, Dirt Monkey x Jantsen, and COM3T for official remixes.

The colorful track combines reggae chord plucks, a signature of GriZ’ funky sonic palette with the gritty grinding bass lines of Boogie T. The track is a heavy hitter, with a playful melody that can’t help but get stuck in your head. 

The setup of the original allowed Rusko to take “Supa Fly” the rest of the way. Putting his classic dubstep spin on the track, adding his unearthly wobble bass front and center. Rusko’s sound has been in high demand this year, from the release of his 2019 EP MEGARAD, to teasing multiple collaborations with Ducky, we’re loving every minute. 

Overall, the EP is very dubstep oriented with remixes from Gentleman’s Club, Dirt Monkey x Jantsen, and COM3T rounding things out. For several unrelenting bass-heavy takes on this smashing summer original, the EP’s full remix pack is worth a listen.

Check out GRiZ and Boogie T’s new original “Supa Fly” and hear the full serving of remixes here, all part of the Supa Fly EP out via Drama Club Recordings.

The Envision Festival VIP Experience is the Fyre Festival That ACTUALLY Happened

From Beachside Cabanas and a VIP spa to a full-service concierge and even a waterfall adventure tour, the Envision Festival VIP Experience pulled off what Fyre Festival only promised.

By now, everyone has heard of the massive failure of an event called Fyre Festival. Designed to be the ultimate VIP luxury musical festival experience, ticket prices ranged from $4,000 to over $250,000, with headliners such as Blink 182, Major Lazer and Migos

Guests, who arrived at the ‘privately owned island’ prepared to enjoy what was promised to be a weekend of lavish luxury, gourmet catering and a once-in-a-lifetime music experience were shocked to find that the festival was actually a chaotic mess. It failed to deliver on even the most basic living needs, let alone the luxury getaway they were promised. 

On the other hand, although Envision Festival in Costa Rica didn’t implement a strategy of all-out media hype and an outrageously glamorous (and ultimately misleading) influencer blitz like Fyre Festival, they made many equally bold and exciting promises and managed to deliver on every single one of them. Like Fyre Festival, Envision’s VIP Experience offered attendees a once-in-a-lifetime luxury experience in a pristine tropical location. Unlike Fyre Festival, however, Envision Festival delivered everything they promised and more.

To further illustrate the point, let’s take a look at some of the things Fyre Festival promised, and then look at how each event delivered on those expectations. Although we all know the end to this story, it’s pretty incredible to see the staggering difference between expectation and reality when comparing the two events.

Expectation 1: Luxurious Beachside Cabanas

Fyre Festival – Offered VIP Accommodations Ranging from $15,000 to $250,000…. only showed attendees ‘blueprints’ and sketches of the accommodations and ultimately provided soaking wet disaster relief tents instead.

Envision Festival – Offered VIP Cabanas for $10,000 to $20,000… provided luxury accommodations that matched the images available on the website and met or exceeded all of the listed specifications.

Expectation 2: Hanging out with all your friends

Fyre Festival – Locked attendees in an airport, trapped people on an island, and subjected them to an every-man-for-themselves experience likened to The Hunger Games.

Envision Festival – Provided extensive community-building opportunities, not to mention gorgeous beachside get togethers, yoga gatherings, and team activities with all your friends (both new and old).

Expectation 3: Delicious Dining Experience

Fyre Festival – Promised authentic island cuisine with “local seafood, Bahamian-style sushi, and even a pig roast” catered by the massively successful restauranteur, Stephen Starr… delivered cheese and lettuce sandwiches and an abandoned concierge tent.

Envision Festival – Promised family-owned, fairly traded and ethically sourced local food, as well as an array of onsite and offsite dining options… delivered a wide array of organic local produce, an extensive on-site marketplace, as well as a wide variety of offsite local dining options.

Expectation 4: Beautiful Beachside Location

Fyre Festival – Promised a location on Pablo Escobar’s private island with “blissful white sand beaches and crystal-clear seas…” Provided an unfinished parking lot “campsite” surrounded by rocks, and covered in disaster relief tents.

Envision Festival – Delivered jaw-dropping sunsets on a stunning tropical beach located directly next to the Costa-Rican rainforest.

Expectation 5: Picturesque Photo-Ops

Fyre Festival – Promised a beautiful private island with unrivaled photo-ops and unforgettable views… delivered a spectacular view of tipped-over Porta-Potties, abandoned shacks, and some scenic trash-strewn beaches.

Fyre Festival – Promised a “truly magical place where the rainforested mountains meet the warm Pacific ocean”… delivered a tropical paradise perfectly perched where the rainforest connects with a pristine tropical beach.

So what is the moral of this story? It’s by no means impossible to pull off a truly magical, once-in-a-lifetime music festival experience in a picturesque tropical paradise. The trick? Only promise what you can deliver, plan everything well in advance, pay everyone what they are due, and don’t try to put together a massive multi-million dollar event in a few short months.

Envision Festival pulled off what Fyre Festival couldn’t even begin to imagine, and they’ve done it consistently, year after year – and the experience has only gotten better.

Illenium Graces Us with a Remix Package For "Pray" ft. Kameron Alexander

The new music videos for “Pray” and “Crashing” are out now.

Denver-based DJ/producer Illenium (real name Nick Miller) is here to deliver fans of his latest release, “Pray,” some official remixes. He enlisted the help of Blanke, Sam Lamar, and Frequent to deliver fresh takes on the highly acclaimed track. 

The original has already garnered a massive five million global streams since it’s debut late last month. The soulful ballad was just calling out for some impressive remixes, and these three made sure to deliver. 

The Australian producer known as Blanke (the ‘e’ is silent), seems to keep with the format of the original as the opens. Once we hit the drop it’s clear he is going to turn the octane with a different type of energy and power. Breaking down almost three minutes into the song is a mix of quick punches to your face of grime quickly transitioned back into the smooth vocals of Alexander.  

Miller joined up with a fellow Denver native to deliver the next official remix. Frequent changed the vibe up right off the bat. The producer creates a much more atmospheric rendition to the track. It’s beautifully glitchy, dark, and drawn out. 

Sam Lamer, a producer out of Montreal, turns up the bass for his haunting twist on “Pray.” The vibrations are electrifying. Three minutes in there is an insane dubstep break that makes you feel like you’re in a completely different song. Each remix gives fans a new look into what Alexander’s vocals can handle. 

Along with the remix drop comes the unveiling of both the “Pray” and “Crashing” music videos. “Crashing” features vocals from Bahari and is a continuation of the “Pray” storyline, though it came out prior to the aforementioned song. Both tracks are beautifully cinematic and the visuals provide the perfect platform to convey their message. 

Miller has been keeping himself busy. After a killer performance at Ultra Music Festival, he’s off to take the stage at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. To top it off he has his residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas and legendary sets at Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks Amphitheater

ATLiens and Blanke Debut Their Monstrous Collab, "Contact"

This tune is out of this world.

Duo ATLiens and Blanke (real name JP Orchison) have released their collaborative effort, “Contact,” via Downright.

“Contact” is just what fans of ATLiens and Orchison should expect. The robotic drums are accompanied by an interstellar synth, leading to a hard-hitting drop when contact is established. ATLiens’ usual, extraterrestrial vibe stays intact while Orchison’s unique and recognizable sound is scattered throughout.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Although the identities of ATLiens remain a mystery, they’ve found no trouble garnering a loyal fanbase. They are no strangers to collaborations, as they’ve released joint efforts with the likes of Bassnectar, Tynan, and Party Thieves. They even managed to throw together their own showcase at Miami Music Week this year.

Orchison’s young career has been a prolific one. The Australian born producer has had a successful stream of releases such as his ALT.COLOUR // VOICE IN THE MACHINE EP out on Deadbeats. He’s also found major success with his previous collabs, such as “Mixed Signals” with REZZ, “Destiny” with 1788-L, and “Hacker” with Black Tiger Sex Machine.

Zack Martino and Dyson Bring Summertime Vibes with "MOOD"

Zack Martino and Dyson have outdone themselves with this one.

Zack Martino and Dyson (real name Mia Dyson) have teamed up to bring us “MOOD” via Armada Music.

“MOOD” is right in Martino’s ballpark. Dyson’s sultry vocals build perfectly into Martino’s laid-back, feelgood drop. This anthem was built for the club circuit and fans of Martino will be jamming to this all summer long. 

“‘MOOD’ to me is a feeling,” Martino said. “It’s how your emotions play a huge role in the music you love. I hope whenever you hear ‘MOOD,’ it brightens up your day and makes you want to dance.”

Martino has had no problem establishing himself in a short amount of time. The young New York native’s hit singles “Hold On To Me” and “Doomsday” featuring VASSY were nominated for a Grammy Award and he’s had the opportunity to whip up some impressive remixes for Armin van Buren, Galantis, and The Chainsmokers.

Instagram Plans to Hide Like Counts to Improve User’s Mental Health

Image result for instagramOver the last few years, Instagram has made an enormous impact on social media. Now, Instagram could be adding a new feature where the app will hide the amount of likes users receive on their photos.

Instagram described this change as a massive potential impact on users’ mental health. Although social media can be all fun and games, sometimes social media apps can unfortunately get competitive. Instagram wants to end the hostile and competitive attitude on their application. Despite the fact that consumers enjoy getting new likes on their photos, Instagram’s goal is to reduce pressure and make Instagram a safe place for users to share content.

“We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get. During this test, only the person who shares a post will see the total number of likes it gets.”

Instagram explains how removing like counts has the ability to reduce negative feedback while using the app. While Instagram has been simultaneously been going back and forth about what the future holds for social media, this change might be the next big thing for the next generation. Being aesthetic has always been a big trait for Instagram users. Now, Instagram is looking into creating ways for users to show their true creativity.

Although Instagram is proposing a change that will be out of the ordinary, how will this impact Instagram Influencers? If Instagram decides to move further with this new change, maybe it will be an opportunity for social media to grow in a positive way.

One World Radio and SiriusXM to Host Avicii Tributes Tomorrow

tomorrowland avicii tribute

Has it already been one year? It’s hard to imagine that Tim Bergling, better known to fans as Avicii, passed away exactly one year ago. Tomorrow, Saturday, April 20, fans and musicians alike will take a moment to remember a fallen legend. In honor of the occasion, Tomorrowland’s One World Radio will hold an Avicii tribute day. In addition, #BPM on SiriusXM will also pay tribute to Avicii’s life and legacy.

On One World Radio, throughout the entire day, listeners can tune in to hear an iconic Avicii track played each hour. Beginning at 14:00 CET (9:00am EST/6:00am PST), and hour-long “best of Avicii” mega-mix will be played. The culmination of the day devoted to the Swedish superstar is a broadcast of Avicii’s epic set from Tomorrowland 2015 – the last time he played the fabled Belgian festival.

The first time Avicii dropped his iconic track ‘Levels‘ was at Tomorrowland in 2011. He continued to give memorable performances despite the internal struggles he was facing.

#BPM on SiriusXM will host a similar day, but in addition to Avicii tracks, they will feature exclusive audio clips from today’s artists. They will speak about Tim, what he meant to the music community, and how he personally helped shape their careers. As an added bonus, Damian Pinto will host a special production about Avicii, which will feature a broadcast interview that has never been previously aired. That station is Channel 51 on SiriusXM. If you are looking for a free trial to SiriusXM, this will be worth it.

This day on One World Radio and SiriusXM promises to be an emotional one. In all, this seems like a very appropriate and meaningful way to remember him – through his music.

CLICK HERE tomorrow, Saturday, April 20 and listen to One World Radio honor Avicii

Skrillex Plotting a Concert….in Space?

Skrillex

Skrillex recently sat down with rising cellist, vocalist & collaborator Kelsey Lu (on her single Due West) for Interview Magazine to talk about authentic artistry, NSYNC and much more. And well somehow their deep artistical talk developed into discussing the possibility of throwing shows in outer space. In their eyes, the future for something like that may not be too far away.

First Kelsey expressed her interest in playing on Mars & floated an excellent idea of a Skrillex x Kelsey Lu space tour. And as it just so happens, Sonny has already put a lot of thought into his space debut already (time to dust off the old mothership then?).

And I’d rather you hear the details from the man himself. Below is a small excerpt from the interview in which he lays out his rather interesting plan:

“LU: You and I should do a space tour.
SKRILLEX: What would music sound like on the moon?
LU: Well, what’s the setting? Are we just in a hub on the planet? Or would everyone be on a shuttle just revolving around the planet? Would everyone be in space suits?
SKRILLEX: If it were me, I’d make a glass dome. It would be a translucent dome that you could fog on demand and you could turn the gravity on and off. So when you enter the dome, you can’t really see the view and the gravity is normal. And then, all of a sudden during the performance, the shades open and you turn off the gravity, and—
LU: And it’s like the fizzy lifting drink from Willy Wonka!”

Realistically the possibility for something like this happening would be pretty low, but hey you never know right? Dance music fans would absolutely go nuts if something even close to this happened.

On a side note who’s up for spamming Elon Musk’s Twitter till he makes this happen?
