• Bring Me the Horizon Cancel US Tour After Lead Singer Oli Sykes Ruptures Vocal Cord

    Bring Me The Horizon brought emo kids and dance music kids together on their latest album amo, which came out earlier this year. The live tour that followed was similarly magical, replete with mosh pits as well as large anthemic, synth-driven moments. Unfortunately, the tour is being cut short as lead singer Oli Sykes says he has ruptured a vocal cord.
    Thankfully, the band had only a handful of shows left at the time of the announcement: February 15th in Phoenix, Arizona, February 16t
  • Cazztek Drop Epic VIP To His Hit “Came To Get Funky”

    When Cazztek dropped “Came To Get Funky” in 2017, it became an instant hit. In fact, it’s now his most-streamed track on Spotify, and it’s not hard to see why. The funky, bouncy rhythm combined with trap influences is an instant dance party waiting to happen. So we’re ecstatic now that he chose to put out a dope VIP of the mix.
    As any VIP should be, it closely resembles its original mix. The rhythm is a bit different, the synths slightly rearranged — honestly
  • Rival – Lately (ft. Conor Byrne) [Lyric Video]

    I love listening to music that makes my bones feel as if they’re receiving a sonic massage. At the same time, it’s nice to just sit down with a soft, melodic tune that has some powerful lyrics. The latter is true of Rival’s new song “Lately” featuring Conor Byrne.
    “Lately” is out today along with a lyric video so you can follow along. The tone set by the setting, in a dark, empty room, combined with the minimal and melancholy production, is definitely i
  • Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival Splits Into Three Separate Events

    Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, the event celebrating the anniversary of the 1969 Woodstock festival at Bethel Woods (and not the Woodstock 50th anniversary festival, as could be misconstrued), will no longer continue in its initial form.
    BWMCF will now comprise three separate events over three days, as promoter INVNT announces that will no longer be producing the festival. Instead, it will form part of the venue’s Season of Song & Celebration commemorations, a year-long

  • Illenium Goes On Sudden Response Spree On Twitter, Fans Flood Him With Questions

    Normally if an artist, celebrity, or athlete wants to answer fan questions on the internet, they’ll do a form of AMA: ask me anything. Platforms that support this vary from Reddit, where there’s an actual community for it; Instagram, where there’s a question button built in; or Twitter, where it’s admittedly a bit more messy. Then again, fans can just notice a public figure is answering lots of questions and start flooding the person with more! The latter seems to be the

    Diplo has finally spilled details on his Europa EP, including a drop date and a full tracklist. Hot off a recent Grammy win, the producer is setting himself up for another stellar release.

  • Disciple Artists Turn A Lamborghini Into An EDM Track [WATCH]

    A guitar is a guitar. It can take many shapes, but the basic idea of strings and frets remains consistent whether it’s acoustic, electric, or virtual. EDM, and synthesizers more specifically, are different. Any sound can become any other sound, and that’s why it can often be so fun to create music from nothing; that same characteristic can also make it challenging when you have so many sounds to choose from.
    Thankfully, if you have an idea in mind, you can set out to make it a reali

    Marshmello just wrapped up a double header in India for Vh1 Supersonic.

  • Mickey Kojak’s cover of “White Flag” by Dido will leave you feeling emotional

    Australian talent Mickey Kojak spent 2018 turning heads. From his Daft Punk and Mac DeMarco covers, to his hit “All That Acid” and a collaboration with k?d, Mickey certainly had a solid year.

    A teaser from Tomorrowland last Friday had people thinking that Swedish House Mafia could soon be added to the lineup this year; however, news from the festival has debunked the rumors, as Tomorrowland has announced its own radio show “One World Radio” for the festival’s 15th anniversary. (Swedish House Mafia might still play Tomorrowland, but this isn’t about that.)

  • Your EDM Premiere: Space Laces – Phone Tap [Never Say Die]

    Space Laces is, without a doubt, one of the best producers in dubstep right now. Whether you look at sound design, arrangement, or simply outlandish weirdness, Space Laces has the market cornered. Though his prowess has been known for years, his Vaultage 001 mixtape toward the end of 2018 certainly exposed him to a wider audience, and he’s capitalizing on that now in his first release of 2019.

    The title of NETSKY’s new single, “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore,” probably wasn’t intended to be self-referential, but that’s sure how it feels.
