Widespread Panic is in the middle of a three-night run in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, wildly coinciding with the same timing of the championship run for the Milwaukee Brewers. They’re playing Riverside Theater tonight and finish up the run tomorrow. We’ve got the setlist below so scroll down to get a look at what the band played […]
Even Martin Garrix gets sick apparently, which is what the producer tells his fans and tries to convince himself he will get over as he walks up to his Tomorrowland main stage set. The newest episode of The Martin Garrix Show shows the producer with a sore throat as he is fading quickly before his set approaches. Mentor David Guetta tops his sick day off by playing Garrix’s unreleased track “Yottabyte” before the producer goes on, which is what Garrix was planning on opening with.
Garrix fans know that he premiered the track “High on Life” featuring Bonn at the festival, and viewers get a behind the scenes view of how he flew the artist in last minute to showcase the track on the main stage. Dua Lipa also talks to viewers about her first Tomorrowland performance, rounding out the episode with high profile performances and, as always, a look into Garrix’s hectic world.
When producer SAVI and vocalist Bryan Ellis‘s pop perfect collaboration “Voices” dropped in June, it arrived just in time to soundtrack summer with its deft blend of radio ready instrumentals and personal lyrics. Now, the two artists have paired their co-written track with a claustrophobic new music video.
The song’s future pop sensibilities perfectly soundtrack Ellis in his tortured state, following him from a sunlit swanky apartment to dark street corners as he (sometimes literally) runs from demons of relationships past. The video bright and polished, with sharply contrasting horror movie moments highlighting the contrast between SAVI’s fizzing instrumental and Ellis’s lines. The music video is another triumph for the fast rising LA-based producer, perfectly illustrating an artist with a firm grasp on effortlessly palatable genre-blending creations.
Phish will be taking the stage shortly for night two at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia. Last night’s show was pretty solid and a great opener for the run (don’t skip on that “Golden Age” jam), so tonight will likely be another rager. It is Saturday night so anything can and will happen. Don’t forget that […]
First and foremost, sorry for the back to back push notifications to our users, but wow has a lot of news dropped in the last 10 minutes. After DJ Mag had just announced the winner of the 2018 Top 100 (congrats to Martin Garrix), all members of Swedish House Mafia took to Instagram to confirm
It is official everyone, Martin Garrix has once again been crowned the world’s number 1 DJ by the readers of DJ Mag. While this year’s Top 100 left A LOT to be desired in several ways, the top 6 spots were once again held by the same artists with a slight reshuffling. While the poll
While Chromeo‘s recorded catalog is impressive on its own, there is always something special about watching the Funk Lordz’s energetic live set. While stripping back their usually extravagant stage set-up, Montreal-natives Dave1 and P-Thugg have brought along a full band to NPR’s iconic Tiny Desk series.
Playing three songs from their new album, Head Over Heels, and tossing in their 2014 highlight, “Jealous,” Chromeo and their live ensemble unveil new, textured versions of their sleek originals. Their Philly-based backing band’s two percussionists energize the room, while the keyboardist brings the warm, analog layer that’s a characteristic hallmark of Chromeo’s work. As P-Thugg flexes his multi-instrumental skills on the bass guitar and his signature talkbox, rousing renditions of “Count Me Out,” “Must’ve Been,” and “Don’t Sleep,” prove once again why Chromeo’s 1980s-inspired body of work remains so timeless.
Rihanna is reportedly the latest artist to turn down an offer to perform at the NFL’s Super Bowl halftime show in support of former star quarterback turned-civil rights champion Colin Kaepernick. According to a source, the NFL badly wanted the Barbadian hitmaker to perform at next year’s Super Bowl in Atlanta. The singer declined to perform as a show of support for Kaepernick’s stance on the ongoing national anthem kneeling controversy. Taking Rihanna’s place will be radio rock kings Maroon 5.
The Super Bowl has been the place of some of the most legendary musical performances from icons including Michael Jackson, U2, and Prince. Rihanna now joins JAY-Z as the second artist in as many years to deny a chance to perform at the big game, which is well known to send catalogue streams and sales skyrocketing. Football in America has grown more politically and socially charged than ever before, and it’s reasonable to assume the music world will see more hardline stances about the once-coveted halftime spot.
Massive Attack‘s debut album, Mezzanine, turned 20 this spring, a musical milestone that the British group commemorated in an unconventional manner. Massive Attack observed the iconic record’s 20th anniversary by encoding Mezzanine in DNA, making for an unprecedented first in the context of modern day album storage. Massive Attack expressed that DNA encoding “could be an answer to the problem of archiving the increasing amount of information that the world is creating” at the time of the production’s conversion from digital audio file to DNA molecules.
Now, the album stored in the microscopic DNA strands gets an even more eccentric reissue: matte black DNA encoded spray paint, enclosed within an aerosol can. “It’s a creative way to store your back catalogue, although DNA-encoded spray paint is unlikely to be adopted by street artists seeking anonymity,” Massive Attack’s 3D, explains. Each of the aerosol cans contains an approximation of one million DNA encoded copies of the album.
The DNA spray paint precedes the more traditional special edition double CD re-release of Mezzanine, slated to arrive in November. A box set of three-colored vinyl will follow the CD set in December. Each remastered edition will feature exclusive and previously unreleased Mad Professor dub remixes, creating a novel listening experience, despite the record’s long venerated status. The three-part vinyl set will include an image book with pictures provided by Massive Attack members Robert Del Naja and Nick Knight, and will additionally arrive in a “heat sensitive box” that allows the sleeve color to change in response to different temperatures.
Phish is in the middle of their three-night run at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia, and last night’s first show was absolutely slamming.
