Levitation Jones made reference to illicit substances in a recent tweet.
In the age of social media, it can be hard to walk the line between lighthearted controversy and PR catastrophe. Levitation Jones (Real Name Brian Garner) has made remarks that have resulted in the latter. Last night he took to Twitter to request that members of his fan base provide ketamine for his upcoming performance at Aisle 5 in Atlanta.
The tweet (which has since been deleted) quickly found its way to Aisle 5’s management, who Garner said asked him to delete it from his account. In a series of subsequent tweets, he claimed that the request had been a joke. “I’ve been playing my sets super clear headed and not getting high,” he wrote. “Been taking myself extremely seriously. Haven’t had issues this entire year.”
Levitation Jones will perform at Aisle 5 as planned on Saturday, November 10th with St. Petersburg, Florida DJ/producer Mystic Grizzly on support. Find more information of purchase tickets here.

Have you ever gone to a show or perhaps heard a music clip online that you recorded and wanted to share on your Facebook page, only to be negated by a pesky pop up that claims you may not own the copyright to said content? Well soon, that may not be the case, as long as it falls under Universal‘s vast catalog of copyrighted content that is.
Facebook and Universal have announced that they have partnered up and signed what they are calling an, “Unprecedented Global Licensing Deal” which would give users permission to share said content without any issues. The deal is extending to not only Facebook but also, other Facebook owned platforms such as Oculus & Instagram as well.
With Universal being the first to sign such a deal we can expect to possibly see this be integrated soon into the mentioned platforms apps soon in the form of a new update, so make sure to keep an eye out for that. Watch the video below for more.

In a recent feature with Mixmag, live electronic trio RÜFÜS DU SOL shares the secrets behind Solace – their third album out this October. To recap where the trio has been, their first album Atlas premiered in 2014 and was created in their hometown of Sydney, Australia. Two years later, the group had attained enormous success and headed to Berlin to create their second album Bloom and continued to build their loyal fan following. Now, four years since their first album the trio found home in a Los Angeles home dubbed Rose Avenue. It was here that the group began working on their third album from scratch – no samples, no previous work, just their imaginations and each other.
Behind the Scenes of Solace
We learn in the article from Mixmag, that the band remodeled the pool house of Rose Avenue into an underwater galaxy with the help of a shaman. This eccentric space helped the group of friends write the most songs they ever had and explore challenging times in their lives. Lead singer and guitarist Tyrone Lindqvist explains that while creating their latest single ‘Underwater’ he was feeling trapped.
“When we were writing ‘Underwater’, I felt very trapped. The lyrics that came out felt very true [and described] that feeling of desperation,” he says.
In addition to this incredible feature and look into the exceptionally talented trio, RÜFÜS DU SOL released an hour long mix you can listen to here.
Check out the full Mixmag cover on RÜFÜS DU SOL here, and check back with us October 12 for the full review of their third album Solace.

The music industry today is not what it always was. Times are changing fast, and it is always amazing to see the thoughts and views of current artists. One of the most respected and talented artists of our time is Porter Robinson. He ended 2017 by giving us Virtual Self, who’s first live performance debuted on December 8th, 2017, in Brooklyn, New York. So, how does he feel about the music industry today?
Well, a recently uncovered e-mail from the producer tells all. The leaked e-mail, which was addressed only to key industry partners and friends, gives fans a closer look into Robinson’s views on the the state of art and electronic music.
In the e-mail message, Robinson speaks to the ways in which pop has infiltrated electronic music since 2016, as well as his concern over how artists have been focusing more on making number one hits instead of following their personal style. He also discusses his goal to reignite creative risk taking.
The message was confirmed by his management as authentic, as well as in Robinson’s replies on Twitter.
that’s not what this is. this is an email i sent to a few friends and industry people before the EP came out, and i’m guessing the email leaked.
i’m okay with people reading it though, i probably should have been saying some of this stuff publicly anyway. https://t.co/NwcGTzf2zw

This is the e-mail that was sent out:
Virtual Self is my new side-project. With this E.P., I want to convey a certain kind of ‘new nostalgia’ and resuscitate some things that have fallen out of fashion, especially from the early 2000s.
Musically, the project is super super inspired by rhythm games and electronic music from that time period. I could talk endlessly about the techniques that I learned to make stuff sound like it was written in 2001, but that’s probably boring to you — but I tried to authentically incorporate IDM-y, jungly drum breaks, era-accurate trancy supersaw sections, early hardcore and j-core elements, but all morphed into something that sounds kind of ‘big’ and thoroughly produced. In other words, I wanted to morph 2001 tropes into a 2017 production sensibility.
Finally — and this might be the goal that’s dearest to me — is to push electronic music in a different direction. As electronic music essentially converged with pop in 2016 (for the second time in the last 10 years, the other time being 2011), I think it’s pushed a lot of artists away from risk-taking and passion projects. In the last two years, for most artists, all they really had to do was compromise their style by like 30% and add a safe, inoffensive tropical vocal to have a chance at having a hit — and I think for many, that temptation was too much.
In my opinion, electronic music is at its best and its healthiest when new, exciting, unexpected things are happening. This is a genre that thrives on novelty. And to be totally clear, I don’t think that Virtual Self, early 2000s trance, or digital abstract art are the solution or the future at all. But!! I DO think this style is something unexpected, and something I’m uniquely poised to make, because I love it. And that’s the precedent I want to set, or at least the approach I want to remind other artists of.
I really, really, truly, love electronic music, and I want it to be as good as it can be. I hope that by doing something unexpected, I can shake things up and hopefully inspire other artists to do something weird.
Anyway, please listen and enjoy!
Thanks for taking the time to hear about all this.
– Porter Robinson
