    The wait for Jauz’s debut album is nearly over, as The Wise and The Wicked is set to be released on August 31. And now, fans can witness the full tracklist and concept behind the album.

    Sexual harassment is a major problem at music festivals — and a new study has exposed some extremely upsetting statistics.
    According to Durham University research, 30% of women say they have been sexually harassed and 10% sexually assaulted. Safety at music festivals is a huge concern, as almost seven out of 10 women worry about potential sexual advances at events across the UK.
    The numbers are much lower among men respondents. About 5% say they have been sexually harassed
  • LUUDE Drops New Cyberpunk Thriller “Omen”

    The crunchy midtempo music train is going full throttle ahead, and every producer is out there trying their hand at the style. Some come from bass realms, some not, but the end result is always a dark and foreboding theme with powerfully textured synths and thunderous bass.
    LUUDE’s new song “Omen” takes this sound and also combines it with the sort of dystopian, cyberpunk themes introduced by artists like Gesaffelstein and Kavinsky years ago. The bouncy rhythm is more than ind
  • Thoreau Reveals Story of Addiction and Loss in new music video for “All I Ever Had”

    Thoreau switched directions a few months ago, changing course from EDM to hip hop, and he’s never sounded better. Of course he’s retained all the knowledge he gained from producing EDM and still uses it in his new music, but the content and goal are so much different than before.
    His new song “All You Ever Had” is easily the most personal song that he’s released yet, about mental health, addiction, and a real friend who needed help.

    Nicki Minaj isn’t too pleased with Spotify right now. Particularly as it concerns her new album Queen and, in her opinion, the streaming service’s lackluster promotion surrounding the release.

    I did a little research whilst listening to this track for the first time, and found out that Nakuru is also a town in Kenya. It appears to be a great place, containing stunning views, overall encapsulating incredible beauty, something I believe both the town and the brand new single, “Nakuru”, from Leo Lauretti & Quizzow, have in common. I’m not sure if there’s any correlation there, but this single is another booming trance anthem that Leo Lauretti and Quizzow stru

    As most people know, I’m always good for a bit of bouncy house music in my life and this new collaborative single from warner case & Zak Downtown definitely hits the spot for me.
    Originally conceived as a bouncy instrumental from warner case, the track evolved into the record it is today out of sheer coincidence when warner case bumped into Zak Downtown who graciously agreed to provide his smooth vocals. The result is a banging club-ready record that’s sure to take ove

    You’d be hard-pressed to find people who support homophobia in dance music culture, but they are of course out there lurking. Much has been done to provide all cultures, sexual orientations, races, genders, et al. with a safe space to dance their booties off, but the battle continues day after day.
    The latest to really make a statement about homophobia in dance music is Canadian producer/DJ Ekali, who in doing so, also came out as bisexual.Yes I’m bisexual. Stop leaving hateful gay

Taking crack at Blue Stahli’s “Not Over Til We Say So,” Formal One transformed this metalcore headbanger bonanza into more of a double-time dubstep banger.

    This 4-track EP is a bass lover’s wet dream, with plenty of squelching bass and nasty rhythms to make you wonder what you ate before you went to bed. Then again, there’s also the anthemic and comparably “pretty” song “Down” with Kastoway that cuts the EP in two. However, the final track on the EP, “Rows,” rights the ship and goes hard with one massive track before all is said

    One of the best things we’ve seen lately, if not ever, is Sacha Baron Cohen as DJ Solitary. The actor and comedian famous for his off-the-wall humor and borderline offensive characters, such as Borat and Bruno, was able to trick a Miami nightclub into believing he was the next big thing for a hilarious result.

    It’s been a wild year for LA-based HVDES for a number of reasons, but it’s all culminated in the release of her debut EP, Revelations, out today via Kannibalen Records.
    The 3-track EP plays perfectly to her dark and devilish persona, pushing boundless evil techno and bass in one seamless package. It opens with a boom with “Revelations,” a pulsating electro beast with hints of Gesaffelstein or Alesia, but a flavor all HVDES’ own.
