Polish artists Skytech and DNF fuse their talents for the future house track “Touching Me.”
Mateusz Dziewulski, who produces under the moniker Skytech, collaborates with fellow Polish DJ DNF for the groovy future house tune, “Touching Me.” The track was released on R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK label.
The artists have delivered a dance-floor tune just in time for festival season. The vocals’ heavy autotune weave through the bass and melodic groove. The minimal bass line drives the future bass sound home, a Skytech signature.
In case “Touching Me” resonates with your summer temperament, watch the music video below.
Dziewulski first made waves with his 2015 single “Tiger” with R3HAB and Fafaq. Since “Tiger,” both artists have worked on a slew of tracks together, like “Fuego.” The two DJs successfully fuse their sounds together for club- and festival-friendly tunes.
This new track follows a good number of Dziewulski’s recent releases, including a remix of R3HAB and MOTi’s “Up All Night.” The Polish DJ appears keen on continuing in his upwards trajectory; he ventured onto the Tomorrowland stage last year after being named the most-streamed Polish artist in 2017 on Spotify.

Who’s going to the final?
The biggest sporting event in the world is back! While millions of people around the world are partying in the street and cheering on their team, us Americans have to write World Cup inspired articles to feel included.
Let’s suspend reality for a moment and imagine that instead of jumping up and down and yelling into the mic, our favorite EDM artists decided to become soccer (football) players and coaches.
We chose one influential artist from each country to lead their country’s squad as well as one song released in 2018 from each country to serve as their team anthem.
Introducing your 2018 World Cup team managers and anthems!
Part 1 available here.
Manager – Paco Osuna
For more than 20 years Paco Osuna has been an important player in the Spanish dance music world. From starting a record label to opening a club, he has helped set the stage for dance music to grow. His knowledge and expertise make him the perfect to lead La Furia Roja.
Anthem – Infinite Pledge by Uner
With its pulsating energy, this track will make the stadium, the locker room, or anywhere feel like Ibiza.
Manager – Nina Kraviz
An obvious choice to lead her country. Despite having a doctorate and working as a dentist, she became an instant techno sensation. The fact that she can master both dental health and dance music makes it pretty reasonable to assume that she could coach a soccer team to victory if she put her mind to it.
Anthem – Couldn’t Be Better by Arty
Close your eyes and listen to this one and imagine it playing through the speakers in an arena. The grandiose of this track makes it seem like it was created to be played on the biggest stage of them all.
Manager – Petar Dundov
His passion for techno music and his other-worldly ability to create intricate melodies are apparent in Petar Dundov release. When he takes the stage he has the ability to lead crowds on a journey to faraway lands with his sound. His intelligence and abilities make him the ideal candidate to lead Croatia.
Anthem – Fallin Apart by Insolate
This is one of those tracks that you put on during a workout and get so hyped that you end up sore for three days. Listening to this at least once a day will help you win any sporting event.
Manager – MØ
There are few synthpop artists who will accomplish even 1% of what MØ has. Alongside an amazing solo career, her collaboration with Major Lazer for “Lean On” is the fourth-highest streamed song of all time on Spotify. Her incredible accomplishments and talents make it pretty hard to consider anyone else for Denmark.
Anthem – Party Freaks (Ft. Anna Yvette) by Pegboard Nerds
This heater was created for a video game that is essentially soccer with cars. So it’s safe to assume it would be appropriate for soccer without cars…right?
Manager – AVICII
Need we say more? Attempting to list all the reasons why Avicii would lead his country would take weeks. An all-time dance music great who will continue to influence dance music for decades. He has paved the way for so many of our favorite artists to succeed and we can’t think of anyone better to lead over a massive dance music country.
Anthem – Spaceship (Ft. Uffie) by Galantis
The perfect representation of the uplifting dance music that has made Sweden one of the most important countries in EDM.
Manager – EDX
Most people dream of being a successful artist, record label founder, or radio host. EDX didn’t just settle for one, he decided to become all three… at the same time. With hundreds of releases under his belt and one of SiriusXM’s best dance music shows, EDX will be able to apply his leadership and bring the Swiss to victory.
Anthem – Café Brasil by Croatia Squad
Despite Brazil and Croatia both being included on this list, Switzerland’s Croatia Squad has the perfect deep house track to help his team focus on the cup.
Manager – Adriana Lopez
An important figure in the growing Colombian dance music world, Adriana Lopez has taken her talents global and played in some of the most iconic nightclubs in the world (yes, even Berghain). Her leadership skills have been made apparent by the success of her record label and therefore choosing the manager of Los Cafeteros is quite easy.
Anthem – Ode To You by Merino
An intense, yet, calculated melody to help give his team the ability to become world champions. Perfect when you need to tune out the rest of the world and focus.
Manager – Carl Cox
If there was a Mount Rushmore of dance music, Carl Cox would most definitely be included. Over the past three decades, he has gone from underground sensation to the host of his very own stages in major music festivals all around the world. He is a natural born leader and the clear choice to lead England.
Anthem – Look Out by Rusko
An instant classic from one of the don of dubstep. Showcasing the signature wobbles and hard-hitting bass of his country, this track will help his team bring the cup home.

Last weekend, Grant Kwiecinski, better known as GRiZ, took to Asheville, North Carolina for his second straight New Year’s Eve ‘Get Down‘ to bring in 2018 like only he can. Last year, GRiZ celebrated the start of 2017 in Asheville for his first ever ‘Get Down’ at the U.S. Cellular Center. Following last year’s show, he promised to return to make New Year’s Eve in Asheville an annual tradition. Return he did, this time performing for two nights; the first night with his 14-piece live band, followed by a high energy set featuring some of his all time classics, much of his new unreleased music, and a little bit of fun funky flavor in between. ‘The Get Down’ represented a culmination of a year full of accomplishments for Grant and his team, as they showed off a polished version of the live band compared to the Red Rocks debut, and displayed an incredible ability to translate GRiZ’s electronic productions into an immersive live experience.

Night one featured a wild mix of music from start to finish. Opening up the night was the Nth Power; Nth Power drummer Nikki Glaspie is the drummer for the GRiZ Live Band, and she also toured extensively as Beyonce’s live drummer for five years. The Nth Power was formed during a late night jam session at the 2012 Jazz Fest in New Orleans. Judging by their set, the creative and free flowing vibe of a jam session definitely played a significant role in creating their sound. The set was all kinds of jammy, groovy, soulful, and just the perfect way to kick off a magical evening. Following the Nth Power came DJ Craze, an old school hip-hop scratch DJ who took the vibe in a completely different direction for his hour on stage. It was a slightly odd selection to have before the headline act that followed, but Craze was definitely a crowd pleaser and kept the vibes high. Playing a selection of very well known mostly 90s hip-hop, he got the crowd ready with a mixture of his improvisation ability along with the fact that he played songs the entire crowd knew.
Finally, it was time for GRiZ and Muzzy Bearr to take their typical places at the front wielding their saxophone and guitar respectively, while the stage filled up behind them with the rest of the band. First off, it’s entirely necessary to mention the vast improvement of the live band in the months since their Red Rocks debut. Red Rocks was (obviously) the best place for Grant to debut the band. He has adopted Denver as his second hometown, it was his third time playing the venue (located in Morrison), and the acoustics within Red Rocks are superior to almost anywhere in the world. However, that show was not without its kinks.
That was not the case in Asheville, at an indoor venue that certainly did not possess the same sonic environment as Red Rocks. The band seemed to be more in sync with each other, and each individual member had their moment to shine with epic jams built in between many of the songs. The band ran through several of GRiZ’s greatest hits including “Good Times Roll,” “Dance With Me,” and “A Fine Way to Die” in the first half of the set. The second half was comprised mostly of songs from Good Will Prevail, including “Before I Go,” “Driftin‘” and “Wicked.” They definitely saved the best for the last with an unbelievable rendition of “Gotta Push On,” before encoring with “Stop Trippin’” from the Say It Loud album.

Night one was a spectacle, but night two was special in an entirely different way. The show began with Brasstracks, the New York based duo featuring Ivan Jackson on trumpet and Conor Rayne on drums. Brasstracks experienced a quick rise to stardom in 2017, finding themselves on many major festival lineups, as well as opening for GRiZ on multiple occasions. They gained recognition from their 2016 EP Good Love, and followed up in late 2017 with For Those Who Know Pt. 1. Their set was comprised of most of the songs from both EPs, as well as their covers of well known tracks “All of the Lights” by Kanye West and “XO Tour Llif3” by Lil Uzi Vert.
After Brasstracks was Vancouver native Ekali, who took the energy through the roof, playing some of the hardest hitting trap and future bass tracks of the past year including Skrillex’s remix of “Humble”, “Vision” by Slumberjack, Quix & Josh Pan, and Nitti Gritti’s mashup remix of Kanye’s “All of the Lights” and San Holo’s “Light.” He also ran through much of his catalogue of tracks, including “Babylon” featuring Denzel Curry, “Blame” with ZHU, Past Life featuring Opia and his remix of Flux Pavilion’s “I Can’t Stop”

For a second evening, GRiZ took the stage. This set was one of the heavier sets we’ve seen from GRiZ this year, and he came out slinging heat from the very beginning. He opened with a new ID that may find a place on his next album, followed by his latest remix of Freddy Todd’s “Audible Edibles,” which is less of a song than it is a sonic boom in its short two minutes. Throughout the set he dropped several of his well known IDs, most notably the tentatively dubbed as “Anti Saxophone Saxophone Club,” “One Million Fire Emojis,” and “Supafly” with Boogie T. While there were certainly some similarities in this set compared to some sets he’s played this year, he sent the crowd into a frenzy when he dropped the semi-rare “Smash the Funk” off his 2013 album Mad Liberation.
As the countdown to midnight began, GRiZ threw on The Killers’ “All These Things That I’ve Done,” popped a bottle and joined in with the crowd to celebrate the start of the new year as hundreds of balloons rained down. The second annual New Year’s Eve ‘Get Down’ was a huge success and an incredible way to start the new year. We can’t wait to see what GRiZ has in store for 2018, and look forward to seeing what he brings to the next ‘Get Down.’

Article 13, a new copyright law, is one of the most controversial news happening in the EU. This law will force major social media platforms like YouTube to scan through everything that is uploaded to the platform to ensure that nothing includes copyrighted content. The fact that YouTube is opposed to this article of the recent European Copyright Directive, adopted this summer, is no secret.
These proposed copyright changes present a big problem to YouTube, as the company would be obliged to check who the original right holders are and then pay each accordingly. And with more than 400 hours of video content uploaded every minute, that will be a big challenge.
Suzanne Wojcicki, director of YouTube, stated:
The parliament’s approach is unrealistic in many cases because copyright owners often disagree over who owns what rights. If the owners cannot agree, it is impossible to expect the open platforms that host this content to make the correct rights decisions. and the potential liabilities could be so large that no company could take on such a financial risk.
The statement lists the latest projects of the platform, and Article 13’s new regulations would put the entire community at risk. Normal users could be less inclined to upload their own videos, viewers blocked and small creators could be ruined. Ultimately, this new rule could change the Internet that we see today.
Article 13 “threatens to shut down the ability of millions of people – from creators like you to everyday users – to upload content to platforms like YouTube”, “It threatens to block users in the EU from viewing content that is already live on the channels of creators everywhere,” The new rules also “threaten hundreds of thousands of jobs”, she said.
The statement also includes a direct call to mobilize users against Article 13. User content will run through even more aggressive filters than YouTube’s current Content ID system. However, Article 13 claims that it will fight against the theft and reuse of videos and music.
