Skrillex + Kingdom Hearts! What more could you want?
Dance music fans have even more reason to be excited for the release of one of the most anticipated games of the winter. The next entry in the Kingdom Hearts series will once again feature Utada Hikaru, but this time she’s joined by Skrillex and Poo Bear.
Newsweek has uncovered an ASCAP listing for a track with the titles “Face My Fears” and “Opening Theme (Kingdom Hearts 3)“.
Although nothing is officially confirmed, it is reasonable to believe that a track would not go through the ASCAP process if it wasn’t included in the game.
This track will mark the second time Skrillex and Poo Bear have joined forces since last summer’s “Would You Ever” and the second time Skrillex has worked with Disney since his work on the movie Wreck-It-Ralph.

Currently residing in Calgary, Chad Hardcastle is one of the most prominent DJ’s within the Canadian music scene. Having founded Vivid North Recordings, his talent & passion for the music industry has certainly been impressive.
During Chasing Summer, one of Canada’s most established music festivals, I caught up with him after his performance on the MainStage. In this interview, we talk about how he got started in the music industry, names that he’s looking out for, and so much more. Enjoy!
EDM.com: First of all, thank you for taking the time to talk to me. It’s pretty incredible being here at Chasing Summer. How did you first get into the music industry?
Chad Hardcastle: I grew up listening to a bit of everything. My dad was into Rock & Country. I started listening to Depeche Mode and a lot of the orbital tracks. My stepmom was into 90s dance which is currently still a guilty pleasure. I came from a small town & moved to the city in 2004.
I went out and purchased a set of turntables and a week later I was dabbling in production. I started talking to promoters, and was discovered in a DJ competition. I started writing tracks and getting support from the likes of Dash Berlin. That was when I quit trance.
Oh wow haha.
I took a step back & re-evaluated everything and ended up getting on with Union Events which ended up getting purchased by Live Nation. I was their only resident artist, so all the big guys such as Kaskade, Avicii etc were coming to the city, and I was opening for them.
The rest is history. I started a label called Vivid North. Right now, I’m not worried about being the next big thing. I’m focused on the music. If someone comes to an event, and I can make them feel something, that’s great. It’s the same situation with the music I write.
So obviously we’re at Chasing Summer right now. Where do you see your career in 10 years?
I wouldn’t mind still DJ’ing. But by that point, I’d wanna be doing full-time studio work. As long as I can help cultivate the youth, that’s what matters. As long as people go into this music industry with a good mindset, they’ll be okay.
What are 3 upcoming acts that you’re paying attention to right now?
That’s a tough one. There are loads. Las Von from Toronto, Ben Weber from Germany, and also WD2n from Brazil.
If the world was to end tomorrow, what would you want future generations to remember you by?
Someone who cares. At the end of the day, I don’t wanna be a huge name. I wanna use my following to help the industry.

Disclosure Announce New Album In The Works And Festival Break
The English electronic duo Disclosure, composed of brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence, have announced that a third album is in the works. Following massive success from their freshman album “Settle” and sophomore album “Caracal”, the duo are embarking on their third album this 2018. Through an Instagram post they have stated:
“with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number 3 we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019”
As mentioned above, their Wild Life Festival will take a break for this year. Their highly acclaimed festival, curated in partnership with Rudimental, has brought acts such as Ice Cub, Sam Smith, Wu Tang Clan, Annie Mac, and many others. Will this year’s festival hiatus pay off with their new album?
Check out the full announcement from Disclosure down below:
We embarked on a new journey three years ago by launching @wild_life_fest at Shoreham Airport with our close friends, Rudimental. We’d not long finished touring our asses off of debut album, Settle and that inaugural year of the festival in 2015 allowed us to embark on our next chapter with the release of second album, Caracal. Being able to curate your own festival with your mates and invite legends like Nas, Ice Cube and Chaka Khan to play alongside amazing new talent such as Stormzy, Kaytranada and AJ Tracy, stack them up against a host of flawless DJ’s like Annie Mac, Jackmaster and Armand Van Helden and throw parties with Elrow is literally a dream come true. However, with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number 3 we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019. Thanks to everyone who attended the festival these last three years and gave us some of the best times we’ve ever had as Disclosure, we’re hugely thankful for the opportunity to share that with you, see you all soon.

Excision, SQUNTO, Sullivan King, and HE$H Invade The Wellmont With 225k Watts of CRUSHING PK Sound BASS.
Since he launched the debut edition of Lost Lands Music Festival in 2017, Excision has been on a no-holds-barred mission to lift heavy dubstep to the peak of its neck-breaking glory. In 2018, he followed up stronger than ever with his debut at the first-ever Bass Canyon, as well as the release of his monstrous 14-track album, Apex.
Now, to celebrate the brutal masterwork of an album that is Apex, Excision has once again embarked on a ruthless, earth-shattering tour, complete with his famous The Paradox visual setup and 225,000 watts of PK Sound.
For his New Jersey stop on February 21, Excision will take to the stage at The Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey with HE$H, Sullivan King, and SQUNTO – an all-out bass music lineup aptly fitting the Apex Tour moniker.
As with any Excision show, fans can expect a hefty dose of hybridized prehistoric and robotic visuals mercilessly synchronized to Excision’s signature furious and frenetic style. The Paradox, Excision’s state-of-the-art, one-of-a-kind modular, LED-based stage setup, is the culmination of his iterative and forward-thinking approach to his live experience – and it will be present in all its glory throughout the APEX tour!
“It is easily the coolest production you’re ever going to see,” said Marcel Correa of RVLTN Events. “We’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment on that stage. It’s just insane.”
If bass music is your thing, you simply can’t beat Excision at his own game – come prepared with a neck brace and expect a mix of music ranging from vicious dubstep and riddim to bass house, with even the rare melodic gem sprinkled in.
