If you’re not in the French Alps at Tomorrowland Winter (TLW) right now, you’re missing history in the making. It may be dead cold up there but, guaranteed this party is as hot as it gets. How a festival at a ski resort could be this hot is a mystery, but the footage is straight fire! To prove it, ID&T has already loaded up its live sets for your viewing pleasure.
TLW like any major live event has experienced its issues. A major snowstorm led to some patrons needing evacuation. Just a week before the event, concerns about tent structures brought chills to some expectations. Fortunately, the production carried on and as expected, the results have been fantastic.
History was made before the drop of the first frozen needle with the news of the first-ever live streams. So far, names like Afrojack, Vini Vici, and Armin Van Burren have already graced the stage. Understandably, hearing that you’ve missed out on this level of epicness may give you chills. However, in typical fashion, TLW is warming hearts the world over by posting several of it’s live sets to its Youtube page without delay. We’ve listed the best of the best below.
Armin van Buuren – Orangerie
Armin van Buuren – Garden Of Madness
Vini Vici – Mainstage
Afrojack – Mainstage
MATTN – Mainstage
Salvatore Ganacci – Mainstage
Martin Solveig – Mainstage
Hugel – Garden Of Madness
The live set footage coming out of the Alpe d’Huez resort is superb and just reminds us all how cold the Tomorrowland production is. They’ve definitely set the bar for what a festival can be and hopefully have started a trend going forward. Tune into the live feeds today as Lost Frequencies, Martin Garrix, and Steve Aoki are slated to perform. Keep it locked on EDMTunes too, as we continue to keep you up to date with all the latest.

Alesso just dropped some big news about what his Latin American fans can expect from him in the near future. First, he will be dropping ‘Progresso,‘ this Friday, March 9th. It will be the first volume of his ongoing mixtape series. Secondly, he announced that he will be making an appearance at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro the very same day. He’s already locked down for Tomorrowland and Ultra Miami, and now is in for a huge date in Brazil, alongside Anitta, as a result.
The Grammy-nominated producer was just in Latin America for Sir Richard Branson‘s Venezuela Live Aid. However, in a show of respect for his Latin American fans, he squeezed in an early March date at Carnival. On top of that, he’ll be performing with 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards Finalist Annita. If that doesn’t prove this news’ significance, then how he jammed this all in before Ultra Miami and his Las Vegas appearances should. Alesso must see Latin America as an emerging market and does not want to miss an opportunity to show them some love.
Along with a Carnival set, fans in Latin America and the world over, are happy to hear that a new Alesso mixtape is set to drop this Friday as well. ‘Progreso’ will be the first volume in an ongoing mixtape series that he seems to hold near and dear to his heart. In a press release, he was quoted as saying:
“This project, for me, is about going back to my roots and making house records. I wanted to represent the culture of dance music through this mixtape. Each song is powerful and unique. It’s about telling a story of the past and the future of the genre through the music.”
Alesso is placing a lot of focus on his Latin America appearances and much more Latin love should be expected. Whether it’s doing a big show like EDC Mexico or dropping a new mixtape, it’s easy to see how much he values the Latin American scene. Get a copy of ‘Progresso’ this Friday, on your way to Carnival.

There are a wide array of incredible music tech tools out there today. They range from distributing your music, mastering, backing up your project files, and even automating your life with IFTTT. Everybody, especially musicians, is always in a hurry and very busy with their daily schedules, so online tools that make tedious and time consuming tasks easier are often well received by consumers, especially with industry professionals.
Every industry has their respective online tools, and sometimes it can be difficult to find one that fits your specific needs, especially within the music industry. Making things easier and more efficient for artists, artist managers, publicists, or label owners can greatly aid in the success and efficiency of their business.
So, in this article we’ll share a few of our favorite tools, which include sharing your project files, promoting your music and growing your fans, as well as receiving feedback on demos you submit to various playlist curators, blog writers, and label A&Rs.
Collaboration is one of the key methods in artist growth these days. It allows you to reach an entirely new audience and hopefully attract a few newer fans from their fan base. Collaborating with these artists can be somewhat challenging. It doesn’t have to be, though. Splice is like the Google Drive for your project files. Simply install the application, and it creates a folder called, you guessed it, Splice on your computer. When the application is running, it will upload the project files you add to it to your account. Additionally, it’s free, and you have unlimited storage for all of your project files. Plus, there are a ton of add-ons that can place Splice as a one-stop-shop for any musician.
It’d be silly not to save all of your projects to that Splice folder.
Major music distributors, streaming services, and the like don’t always have the artists and creators that use their platforms in their best interest. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a platform that did, in fact, put the artists and creators at the forefront? Well, Audius does. The platform uses an advanced blockchain infrastructure to power it. Furthermore, once you’ve uploaded your content to the platform, it’s backed up and saved forever. That’s neat, huh? Audius was started by electronic music powerhouse 3LAU.
If you’re looking to step away from platforms that don’t have creators’ best interests in mind, check out Audius.
One of the newest tools to the game and a must have for every musician is Editframe. It’s a meme maker and a video generator tool that makes content creation incredibly easy. It’s as simple as grabbing the URL of a YouTube video, or uploading a GIF, adding some music, some text, and selecting the social media platform you want to export for. Editframe will then process your “frame” and save it to your profile, where you will then be able to download it to your device to share on the social media platforms. It’s totally free, lots of fun, and will let you take your marketing to the top. You can resize videos, crop videos, add text to videos, convert images to video, or even just mute videos – the options are limitless with this meme maker and video generator tool! It pretty much makes it 10 times easier than using iMoview or FinalCut to create amazing content.
This is a tool that can fit the confine for anybody, including food bloggers, Mommy blogs, musicians, podcasters, vloggers, and many more!

For creatives looking for a different approach to digital monetization, Stem.is is a phenomenal alternative.
Part of providing fans and supporters with your music is getting it distributed to the digital service providers like Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer, and more. In addition to providing distribution services for musicians, LANDR will also master your track(s). While it’s not mastered by a human; rather, LANDR applies a complex algorithm that is best for your track. After the track is mastered, you will be able to download a high resolution MP3 and/or WAV file for distribution.
In addition to the online mastering services, LANDR has creative tools to help promote your music after it’s released. This includes a smart link, which allows artists to add the hyperlinks to the various services. This is a service that all musicians should try.
With the rise and continuing success of podcasting, many tools have become available to provide simplistic podcast distribution and maintenance. However, not many are as easy, efficient, and effective as Anchor. It’s completely free, but its limitation is that it’s only available for mobile devices. It makes up for the lack of a web tool via its enhanced analytics, editing tools, effects, and incredible simplicity, though. It’s by far the easiest and quickest way to get up and running for a podcast, regardless of whether you’re a complete amateur or a podcasting veteran.
Plug in your earbuds (that have a microphone), download Anchor, and hit record to share your stories with the world… for free!

The digital realm can prove to be fruitful if its technologies are used properly. Growing your social media profiles can be difficult, especially if you’re just telling fans to “like my Facebook page.” Why not provide give your fans a free song in exchange for a like on Facebook, follow on Twitter, or a repost on SoundCloud? Stereoload is one of the best programs out there for this. They have a slew of highly interactive and in-depth tools that musicians, managers, and labels can leverage to greatly grow their brands and marketing efforts. From collecting emails for an email list to garnering followers on Instagram, Stereoload does it all. It’s also incredibly easy to setup and get started.
A tedious always-on-the-back-burner aspect of any industry is public relations. Nobody wants to take the time, put in the effort, or even spend the money. However, public relations can be a huge benefit for your music and brand. Getting your name on some of the most prolific publications can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Fluence is a one-stop-shop for public relations. Bloggers, playlist curators, technology gurus, and many more professionals can be found on the site. Basically, the aforementioned professionals have a profile, which contains a bio, their specialty, a link to their site, and how to submit your content to them. If, for example, you’re looking for coverage on Dancing Astronaut, then you would find a blogger that writes at the site and submit your track via the link. The blogger will be notified, and you will receive feedback from them.
Instead of blowing up a writer’s email, Facebook, or Instagram messages, which may or may not at all be the way they want to receive submissions, you could use Fluence to submit and receive feedback.
Getting your music into films, advertisements, or short films can be an incredible source of income and exposure. So much so that you could easily retire on a solid placement. This can be tricky to get into because it’s hard to know exactly who to contact. Epidemic Sound, however, can help. The company was founded back in 2009 in Sweden. They began as a music library and have evolved into one of the most forward-moving companies in their niche. As stated on their website, “Our sole purpose is to help individuals and companies soundtrack their stories with quality music.”
Don’t just write and release music for the digital service providers. There are far more opportunities for you to earn revenue, and Epidemic Sound can be a go-to resource.
