Crush will visit five U.S. cities in 2019.
Mile High City EDM fans will be treated to the local debut of a beloved Insomniac event brand. The SoCal promoter has announced that the inaugural Denver edition of Crush will take place at the Fillmore Auditorium on February 9th, 2019.
Crush Denver will be one of five iterations of the Valentine’s Day-themed event brand that will take place next year. As revealed earlier in the month, the others will take place in Chandler, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; San Francisco, California; and San Bernardino, California.
Eight years has passed since Insomniac last attempted to infiltrate Denver’s growing electronic music market. EDC Colorado took place annually from 2008-2011 at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds in nearby Aurora.
Insomniac has yet to disclose any of the lineup details for Crush Denver 2019. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, December 28th, and can be purchased via Live Nation here.

These hip-hop hits have gotten a proper house treatment
Hip-hop and house. Two genres that often play well together music production wise, but not necessarily in sharing fan bases. We are, however, seeing more collaborations across genres and solid remixes from a variety of EDM subgenres contributing to building that bridge. When done well, the integrity of the vocals, feel, and sometimes even beat elements of the track are maintained while house elements like builds, drops, and a four-on-the-floor beat structure gives it that extra something.
Deep house, bass house, and tech house tend to mix most congruently with a lot of the darker, slower hip-hop that is currently in style. Here we will not shy away from some of the biggest and most viral hits of the moment to showcase some versions that we think sound cool and worth a listen.
Lil Nas X – “Old Town Road” (Sevenn Bootleg)
Love or hate everything about this song, its current significance across the music industry is undeniable. Along for the ride are all of the fun 128ish BPM edits this vocal will mesh with nicely. Technically not a remix but notably we have Sevenn giving it the Brazilian bass treatment. Most of us currently know him best for his collab with Tiësto on “BOOM.” Unfortunately we are missing Billy Ray Cyrus on this version, so hopefully that will happen soon.
Sheck Wes & Crankdat – “Mo Bamba” (Moski Switch Up)
While actually released in the summer of 2017, this track became most viral in the latter part of 2018 and is not going away from DJ playlists anytime soon as long as it continues to shake buildings with crowd reaction. Add some Crankdat trap flavor with a high-tempo, monster-energy Moski bass house drop and we now have a recipe to potentially bring down some less stable structures and earn ourselves a speeding ticket.
Travis Scott – “Sicko Mode” ft. Drake (ANGELZ Remix)
A widely accepted crowd favorite, Drake‘s highly memorable verse, “She’s in love with who I am…”, kicks off as the first verse on this version. The dark bass synths and 808s are used along with well grooved percussive elements really sets a nice balance of between the house and hip-hop elements. I’ve gotten compliments on this remix from hip-hop and house heads alike when playing out. I tend to speed it up on the breaks, especially for the Drake part.
Cardi B – Money (ESH Remix)
What would this list be without Cardi B? “Bodak Yellow” was a perfect candidate for so many cool house remixes and edits. Her more recent hits have tended to produce more memorable trap remixes than house. This version by ESH maintains a trap-like beat during the main vocals while dropping into a fun and approachable house beat with Cardi B and pitched male vocal chops. I like the subtle use melodic pianos and pads while still keeping this very bass focused and energetic.
Kanye West x Lil Pump – I Love It (Goshfather Remix)
This one just makes me smile and creates a really fun vibe with the nu-disco elements with heavy use of brass instruments and groove. I love it, hope you will too, and will leave it at that.
Honorable Mention: J. Cole – Middle Child (ARG REMIX)
This is a chill, futurish house version of Middle Child that I definitely plan on throwing into the mix, especially at some day parties this summer.

Steve Aoki and Postmates Bring Pizza to the Homeless of LA
Steve Aoki and his opening of Pizzaoki has been quite the hit this year. Adding to his success, the cake thrower made his 2018 one to remember. His LP, ‘Kolony’ fused EDM and Rap. He helped BTS bring K-pop into the electronic dance music sphere. Now, he is continuing his philanthropy by teaming up with Postmates for something special.
‘Tis the holiday season for doing as much good as possible. Postmates tweeted a tag “better than Santa” and Steve accepted this challenge. Let’s take a look at the callout below.

Could they help him deliver his delicious pies to the homeless of LA? YES!
— Neon Future Aoki (@steveaoki) December 20, 2018
Just yesterday, both our beloved electro house artist and food delivery mogul brightened up some people’s days. Anyone down on their luck received a little slice of heaven (extra cheese please!), smiles and mad good vibes. With Christmas right around the corner, we are both excited and proud for this random act of kindness.
The Art of Being Aoki
How many people can say they are an entrepreneur, music producer, cake thrower, pizza shop owner, and benefactor? This guy. His mantra is “self-made”. Through the spirit of independence and extreme work ethic, Aoki has frequented all parts of the world selling out shows. His popular hit singles, remixes, and Dim Mak clothing line are still just tiny elements to his success. It all starts in your head, from the smallest to the biggest challenges. Have the attitude for your own self-determination and success will follow. Wise words, sir.
As the year comes to an end, we invite you to look back on all that music has brought us and spread the love!

In a surprise announcement, the investigation into the death of The Prodigy lead singer Keith Flint has turned up with inconclusive results. Coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray determined an “open conclusion” after attempting to assess Flint’s death.
“I’ve considered suicide,” Beasley-Murray said.
“To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr. Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death. Having regard to all the circumstances I don’t find that there’s enough evidence for that.”
In addition, Beasley-Murray said that she couldn’t be sure that the event was an accident. She continued: “We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date.”
Oddly enough, Flint’s family and band manager did not attend the hearing were Murray clarified her findings.
It has been a tough time for everyone over the last few weeks since Keef’s passing. If you are struggling with depression, addiction or the impact of suicide, please do not suffer in silence. The Prodigy fully support the campaign to improve mental health for all… (1/2) pic.twitter.com/HjDX6Z0EGa

Flint was found dead in his Essex home in March. Flint was 49 years old. The initial report determined that the cause of Flint’s death was due by hanging. Thus, it was claimed to not be treated as “suspicious”. Toxicology reports showed cocaine, alcohol, and codeine in his blood at the time of his passing.
