Arguably the most ubiquitous and multi-faceted DJs in the biz, A-Trak, Skrillex, and Diplo aim to bring you the “Weirdest Night Ever” tonight at 8PM PST from an undisclosed location in Los Angeles. Hosted as a live stream on the ‘Potato Will Eat You’ Youtube channel, the event boasts an album listening party along with a Q&A for the latest Major Lazer release, “Free the Universe.” Without concrete details besides a “karaoke extravaganza” spotlighting special guests, we can only deduce that this late night cabaret will be weird indeed.Posted by
Daft Punk fans not attending Coachella had a chance to glimpse a higher quality version of the teaser from Day 1 on television tonight. The minute long Random Access Memories advertisement aired on Saturday Night Live, as the Rolling Stones interview alluded to earlier (4/13). Thomas Bangalter explains their decision in airing traditional TV ads:
“When you drive on the sunset strip and see these billboards, it’s more magical than a banner ad,” Thomas says. “SNL is this part of American culture with a certain timelessness to it.”
Needless to say, the final “Get Lucky” release date will be a day long overdue.Posted by
Last year, GLOWFEST brought their biggest fall tour to college campuses around the nation, showcasing big name acts such as Hardwell, Porter Robinson, Zedd, and Krewella. We were able to experience first-hand the energy that percolated throughout the venue at West Virginia University and witness the excitement of those located in areas less frequented on artist tour stops. Though they understood they were tapping into the right crowd and providing a commodity in high demand, co-founders Jack Shannon and Deuce Thevenow couldn’t help but feel something lacking; there was no message, no purpose.

Re-published in case any of our readers missed the Phase 3 update last week.
After recollecting ourselves following the release of a massive Ultra Phase 2 lineup, we dove into the list to make some weekend comparisons. Unlike Coachella, this colossal cast does not replicate weekend to weekend. One of the most utilized browser functions — “Find” (Cntrl + F) — is ineffective when browsing for our favorite artists on the festival’s website. Those that haven’t decided which dates to attend may find it inconvenient wading through the list in picture format to find their most complimentary weekends. Thus, we compiled a searchable table that is alphabetical by performer and illustrates each artist’s respective weekends. Don’t hesitate to share this with others to plan the trip! Click past the break to see some quick stats and the list for your convenient perusal.
Krewella released their genre-melding mix, aptly monikered “Makeout Edition,” on Valentine’s day for their Troll Mix series a couple days ago. While showcasing many of the stand-out chillstep tracks from the past few months, it also included remixes of their own tracks from their Play Hard EP such as “Alive,” “One Minute,” and “Can’t Control Myself.” The transcendant vocals of each track flow from one to the other, rising and falling while carrying emotions from one bass drop to the next.
The multi-faceted Orlando Higginbottom, better known as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (T.E.E.D), doesn’t fall into expectations easily. His originals and remixes span a multitude of genres, from indie dance to drum and bass; his Essential Mix from last year further exhibits his dexterity. Today he uploaded his own fresh take on Foals’ indie track, “My Number.” Lifting a few lines off the normally funky chorus, T.E.E.D layers the newly ethereal vocals over his echoey deep house production. Stream the remix below and watch for the release soon.Posted by
The September sun had just come down behind the hills of Morgantown, and our ears were ringing after one of Krewella’s bass-crazed sets. Thousands of adrenaline-fueled college kids filled a venue on the West Virginia University leg of the GLOWfest college tour. Sweating from a high-energy performance that centered around their recently released Play Hard EP, Chicago’s newest upstart group rolls into the back area looking to continue their night.
“We’re drinking this bottle of champagne together tonight,” Jahan of Krewella pointed to us and said. As she smiled before darting for the cooler, Krewella’s fans lined up outside the artist area, hoping to just get a glimpse or even a picture with their idols.
Pretty Lights Music, Bassnectar, and Slovenian rappers: an in-depth look at Denis Jasarevic of Gramatik
Instead of attending EZoo after-parties, some of us decided to head to a Gramatik show at Webster Hall. We sat down with Denis before he took the stage to hear more about his backstory, which we suspected was an interesting one. As if we were familiar old friends, he gave us the low down of how he ended up in Brooklyn, NY. Read more after the break.
