deadmau5 Drops Uplifting New ID During Verti Music Hall Performance

It’s been too long since deadmau5 treated the horde to new music.

It appears as though deadmau5 has exorcised some of his recent demons in the studio. The Canadian DJ producer recently performed at Verti Music Hall in Berlin, and a video clip of him playing an unreleased ID during his set has surfaced.

A marriage between elements of ambient and retrofuturistic synth work a la Eric Prydz, the track features an atmospheric melody that gives way to a galloping arpeggio. The grandiose motif from the beginning soars over the rest of the arrangement throughout, evoking mental imagery of celestial bodies not unlike the lights that can be seen shining overhead in the clip.

The ID begins shortly after the 53:00 mark in the video below:

Last month, deadmau5 (real name Joel Zimmerman) announced that he would be “going off the radar” after catching heat for tweeting remarks deemed insensitive by some. Last week he shared with his fans that time away from social media had improved his state of mind. Until he returns, it appears that somebody else has been logging into his Twitter account to update the horde on shows and other announcements.

No title, release date or any other information has been revealed for the track debuted by deadmau5 during his Verti Music Hall performance at the time of writing.

Lucchii – Legacy (feat. Stefan Crane)

As we approach the end to an incredibly productive year for Las Vegas based producer Lucchii, he’s is back again with his ninth single of 2018, “Legacy” featuring Stefan Crane.

Time and time again, Lucchii has displayed his stellar ability to combine sensitive vocal topics with his dark and ominous, yet melodic trap and bass filled production style. “Legacy” further cements this point as Lucchii pairs Stefan Crane’s crooning vocals with his heavy trap leaning drops. This track has a particularly special meaning that Lucchii described himself:

“This piece was written & composed to encourage young people from all walks of life that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. That no matter what you have gone through or the lows you have had as a person – there is a legacy waiting to be made for everyone.” – Lucchii

Lucchii has experimented in various genres on his releases throughout the year including future bass and bass house, and “Legacy” will certainly go down as one of his best. Lucchii has fully established his sound for the project, and will unquestionably be one to keep an eye on as he primes himself for a huge 2019. “Legacy” is out now via Music High Court Records, check it out below.

Hot Sugar's EP Dropped from Ninja Tune Due to Allegations of Sexual Violence

Hot Sugar A.K.A. Nick Koenig has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

Trigger warning: sexual assault.

Over the past several days, a staggering number of women have accused Hot Sugar (real name Nick Koenig) of misdeeds ranging from emotional abuse to sexual violence. In response, English record label Ninja Tune has removed the Brooklyn artist’s EP from their catalogue.

Three days ago, an Instagram account with the handle @RealHotSugar began uploading screen shots of anonymous conversations with women alleging that Koenig filmed them performing sexual acts without consent. According to the account’s bio, another account started for the same purpose has already been shut down.

The anonymous testimonies shared by the account have become increasingly graphic. A common thread among them is Koenig engaging in rough acts during sex and continuing after being asked to stop. Numerous accusers have also claimed that he has threatened to take legal action if they speak out against him.

Yesterday, Florida singer/producer Kitty Ray described traumatic experiences during her 18-month relationship with Koenig in an Instagram post. “This violence and abuse was physical, emotional and sexual in nature,” she wrote. “This man would beat and choke me until I passed out, and then beat my face and shake me until i woke up.”

View the original article to see embedded media.

Today, Ninja Tune announced that they had severed ties with Koenig on Twitter after catching wind of the @RealHotSugar Instagram account. Their statement read:

“We’ve just become aware of the very serious allegations made against Hot Sugar. Once we heard, we immediately issued takedown requests for the digital EP release he did with us in 2012, and removed it from our site. He is not a current Ninja Tune artist, and was never signed to the label for work beyond that one EP.

We’re against sexism or violence in any form and we encourage anyone with knowledge regarding these allegations to report them to the authorities.” 

Although the statement asserts that Koenig was never signed to Ninja Tune following his Moon Money EP of 2012, they appear to have had tentative plans to release his 2017 EP The Roots. A post now deleted from the label’s website reads, “We were going to tell everyone how excited we were to have signed Hot Sugar’s forthcoming EP this week, but it seems he’s as prolific a video maker as he is a musician, and he’s done it for us.” 

The film in question was Hot Sugar’s Cold World, an independent documentary on Koenig featuring appearances by Jim Jarmusch and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.

EDM.com has reached out to both Ninja Tune and Hot Sugar’s teams for comment but they have yet to respond at the time of writing. We will update this article as more information is made available.

[WATCH] Keith Urban Performs Cover of Tiesto’s ‘Jackie Chan’ at Barclay’s Center

If you were at Keith Urban’s show at the Barclay’s Center a couple weeks ago, you may have recognized a catchy tune from Tiesto. During country artist Keith Urban’s show, he performed a short cover of Tiesto and Post Malone’s hit song “Jackie Chan”. Pretty unexpected coming from a country show, but Urban pulled it off perfectly in front of thousands of fans. From the video provided below, it sounded like the crowd knew the lyrics just fine and even enjoyed the country twist!

Nowadays, the electronic scene is always changing directions, taking on new crossovers with other genres in the music industry. Whether it’s country, rap, rock, or even classical music as seen in Creamfields’ Kaleidoscope Orchestra this year, we’ve seen it done. While not all of these experimentations work, it means that artists are open to exploring new mixes to keep the EDM scene fresh and alive. Obviously, true fans know this was not the first time we’ve seen a crossover of country and EDM. Music legend Avicii, unarguably made a huge impact with “Wake Me Up”, combining Country/Folk in the EDM scene. Who knows, maybe we’ll see a Keith Urban/Tiesto collaboration later this year or 2019!

Take a look at the short clip below from Urban’s show at the Barclay’s Center!

Dimitri Vegas Will Voice Peter Parker’s Character in New Spider-Man Film’s Dutch Edition

After years of listening to your favorite DJ’s podcast, hearing them grab the mic during their sets, and listening to their interviews, many dedicated followers have come to know the voices of their most-loved musicians, some without even realizing it.

In the new Spider-Man film, christened Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Dimitri Vegas‘ fans in the Netherlands will recognize Peter Parker‘s voice. This is because the Belgian producer has been tapped to voice the dubbed version of the movie. Also lending their voices to the Dutch dub are Jenne Decleir, Koen De Bouw, Alex Agnew, Laura Tesoro, and William Boeva.

In the past, Dimitri Thivaios, better known by his stage name Dimitri Vegas, has expressed his admiration of the Spider-Man brand. Not to mention, he has also collaborated with Disney to create a limited-edition themed clothing line. Trust us, we’re upset that we missed the opportunity to purchase an item (or many) too!

“It is a great honor to be able to design and release this Spidey collection,” Dimitri Vegas stated. “My 12-year old self would be proud!”

You can watch the official trailer for the new Spider-Man film below!

Rezz Says Rezz Rocks Will Become "an Annual Thing," Teases Gorge Amphitheatre Show

Rezz’ visit to Red Rocks Amphitheatre apparently won’t be her last.

For plenty of Rezz fans, Rezz Rocks may well have been the highlight of the 2018 festival season. Those who missed it will apparently have more chances, however. 

“Space Mom” has announced in no uncertain terms that she will return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. In addition, she will headline another show at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington.

After wowing crowds at New City Gas with her recent Porter Robinson remix, among other tracks, Rezz (real name Isabelle Rezazadeh) shared some developments with her fans via Twitter. While Colorado EDM fans surely rejoiced at the news that Rezz Rocks would become “an Annual thing [sic],” Washington ravers will likely lose their collective minds at what else she suggested.

Being that The Gorge Amphitheatre is nearly triple the capacity of Red Rocks, the show will be Rezazedeh’s biggest to date. She has not disclosed an official date at the time of writing – and as can be gleaned from her tweet, she’s still figuring out what to even call it.

Until she reveals more information, watch Rezz’ full performance at Rezz Rocks last month here.

This Swedish House Mafia Fan Trailer will Pump You Up for Their Reunion

“Reload” was the perfect choice for this blockbuster-style trailer.

Between numerous countdown timers, posters in cities across the world, and the promise of new music, Swedish House Mafia have succeeded in building hype for their reunion. In case it hasn’t worked on you quite yet, though, this trailer likely will.

The nearly two-minute video comprises tour and studio footage of which DJ/producers Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso are the primary focus. Set to the the latter artist’s Tommy Trash collaboration, “Reload,” the montage stirs up anticipation for the supergroup’s return by revising moments captured at their peak.

For how well it succeeds at its task, it may come as a surprise that the blockbuster-style trailer was the brainchild of a diehard Swedish House Mafia fan named Billy Crammer. In addition to commercials for brands like Pepsi and Tesla, the Swedish filmmaker makes tribute videos – like this recent one dedicated to Avicii.

Following their first performance in five years at the 2018 edition of Ultra Music Festival, Swedish House Mafia have made rapid-fire announcements showing a more permanent reunion. They will likely make another when the present countdown timer on SwedishHouseMafia.com runs out at 17:00:00 UTC on Thursday, November 15th.

Deadmau5 Debuts New ID Track At Berlin’s Verti Music Hall

Just a few days ago the mau5 made a stopover at Berlin’s Verti Music Hall (after a very long time) on his ongoing European tour. As always, he delivered a blistering set packed full of mau5 goodness. One of the big highlights of the night (and one that caught everyone’s eye), is a new ID played by Joel. Speculation among the fanbase continues on whether this is a new WIP of an unreleased mau5 track dubbed “Nosedive” or a completely new track.

What we know for sure is that this is one of the best tracks he’s written in a while. The melody and progression are both pure, classic mau5. Is this track an insight into the rumoured upcoming mau5 album that’s been hinted at in the past? I sure do hope so, because this is a great return to form for him. It’s great to see Joel working on new music & touring again after he cancelled some shows after a recent sticky patch.

Have a listen to the new ID down here.

Don’t Miss Out on The Glitch Mob’s Next Show in Paris

Paris is always a good idea. And if we can fly in, wander out and about in that beautiful, majestic city, and even catch The Glitch Mob live in concert, that would definitely count as a perfect getaway. Good news is, The Glitch Mob are heading to Europe and their first stop is Paris, so you might even be lucky enough to go!

This year, the Californian trio have released their third album, ‘See Without Eyes‘, and continued to amaze the EDM scene. Their experimental, eclectic sounds range from hip-hop to techno and rock. ‘See Without Eyes’ is not only music – it’s a full journey for all senses that can even be experienced in Virtual Reality via TheWaveVR.  The Glitch Mob have also created their own music element, ‘Blade 2.0’, a one of a kind digital tool that integrates visuals and music in a touch screen giant computer.

The debut of the European Tour is this Wednesday, November 14th, at Le Trianon, Paris, a beautiful concert venue that just this week hosted our other favorite trio, Above & Beyond, during their Common Ground Tour.

For information and tickets about The Glitch Mob in Paris visit the Official Facebook Event by AlloFloride. A limited amount of tickets is still available.

Tritonal Teams up with Mozella on Pop Dance Release "Gonna Be Alright"

Tritonal releases the second single from their upcoming album, U & ME.

Austin, Texas DJ duo Tritonal may be known for their progressive/electro house hits, but now they’re delving into a more pop-leaning sound with their newest release, “Gonna Be Alright.”

Although their latest track has potential to be the next pop hit on the radio, “Gonna Be Alright” still exhibits Tritonal’s blissfully melodic signature sound. It’s also accompanied by mesmerizing vocals that fit the track just right – a feat the duo never fail to accomplish.

This time around, Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed of Tritonal teamed up with multi-platinum and award-winning songwriter Mozella. She has co-written such influential pop tracks as Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball,” Charlie Puth‘s “One Call Away,” and Ellie Goulding‘s “Don’t Panic,” so it comes to no surprise that with her help the song grew to have more pop flair.

The lyrics also also reflect Cisneros’ and Reed’s outlook on life. They told Idolator that “Gonna Be Alright” is “an anthem for all of us out there who are going through something difficult or just trying to make it through our day to day lives.”

After revealing their own vulnerabilities, Cisneros and Reed partnered with the National Alliance On Mental Illness (NAMI) – who actively work to raise awareness of mental health in music. For their July release, “Love U Right,” all of the streaming royalties were donated to support NAMI and their cause. 

For their upcoming 2019 album, U & ME, Tritonal will also embark on a massive tour. Hitting popular stops like Los Angeles’ Palladium, Chicago’s Concord Music Hall and New York City’s Terminal 5, each show will serve as a platform for the duo to showcase songs from the new album.

MTV Acquires Snowglobe Music Festival

Yes, that MTV. The channel where you once watched TRL as a kid (and if not, you probably have no idea what MTV is), is doing probably the most musically relevant thing they’ve done since TRL went off the air god knows how long ago. It’s long been a major criticism that MTV pivoted away from music videos, but it’s an even stranger thing that MTV completely missed the biggest revolution in music of the past decade or so.

The rise of EDM in America was largely ignored by MTV, who was content to sit on the sidelines producing unwatched awards shows and garbage reality TV. Now MTV is finally getting back in the game, and taking a big stake in a solid music festival. Snowglobe is one of the more unique festivals in America, in that it takes place outside in the snow-covered Lake Tahoe area around New Year’s Eve. It also plays host to an eclectic yet solid lineup.

This year’s lineup includes names like Rezz, RL Grime, Above & Beyond, and Eric Prydz to name a few. MTV is planning to expand deeper into live events and also reinvent its NYE coverage. Snowglobe will now become connected with MTV’s Times Square studio, and expand the festival to additional dates and locations.
