Louis The Child makes it to the ‘Big Time’ with X Games’ official 2019 anthem [Stream]Games 4 Galen Oakes

In just six years, Robby Hauldren and Frederic Kennet went from total strangers at a Madeon concert to one of the most ubiquitous acts in the current dance music landscape. Today, the duo better known as Louis The Child, is found applying a coat of their melodic, bass dripping sheen to the infamous X Games, producing the sporting event’s official 2019 anthem, “Big Time.”

Rolling hi-hats and the duo’s beloved future bass licks make
the perfect arena to highlight samples from iconic X Games moments throughout
the years. Further, Louis The Child’s ability to balance upbeat energy with
sub-centric beats makes them the perfect act for the X Games to expand their
brand while still satisfying the masses.

“We’re absolutely stoked to release ‘Big Time’ noted Louis The Child about the track. “It’s a song we’ve been playing out in our shows for a while and we’re excited to have it be the official X Games theme song moving forward.”

The X Games return to Minneapolis from August 1 – 4, with musical performances from Diplo, Wu-Tang Clan, Incubus, and SWMRS at The Armory accompanying the high-octane sporting event.

Year after year, the most in-demand electronic acts from across the globe
and their cross-continental patrons gather in Boom, Belgium for what is unquestionably one of the most bonkers celebrations in dance music.

The quintessential dance music domain saw a colossal main stage revamp of its 2012 theme, the Book of Wisdom. More larger-than-life performances are practically guaranteed for weekend two, which kicks off Thursday July 25, and closing out on Monday July 29.

Ariana Grande reportedly headlining Lollapalooza 2019

Ariana Grande reportedly headlining Lollapalooza 2019Ariana Grande Live Bbmas Billboard

You’d be hard pressed to find another pop star currently having a bigger moment than Ariana Grande. Through last year’s trials and tribulations, facing extreme lows and climbing to equally extreme highs, Ariana Grande has emerged in 2019 as one of the most in-demand musicians in the world, and she’s making all the right moves as she continues to ride the wave she’s on. Following a quick swoop in to a headlining slot at Coachella after Kanye West’s grandiose demands forced talks to fall through, the Sweetener singer has also reportedly been tapped to headline this year’s edition of Lollapalooza.

Variety reports that Grande has been in talks with the Chicago festival for considerably longer than her Coachella negotiations took, and as a result, has already begun rescheduling dates on her current Sweetener World Tour to accommodate her high profile festival bookings. 2018 may have seemed like the year of Ariana Grande, but two weeks in to the new year and it looks like Grande has 2019 firmly under her thumb too. Expect an official announcement in the coming weeks.

Listen to deadmau5 ‘midas heel’ EP from the Netflix movie

Listen to deadmau5 ‘midas heel’ EP from the Netflix movieDeadmau5 Lights

deadmau5 has released a two-track EP teasing his upcoming original score for the Netflix movie Polar. The film’s eye-catching trailer appeared the same day as the EP’s release on YouTube, captivating viewers through Mads Mikkelsen pouncing from the darkness, guns blazing, and very notably, deadmau5′ own track “drama free” — hot off mau5ville: Level 2.

Polar is a live-action adaption of Dark Horse Comics’ graphic novel of the same name written by Víctor Santos. The novel follows international hitman Kaiser Black through an icy landscape after he is forced out of retirement when an assassination attempt is made on his life. The comic is full of gore, mostly action, and is known for its being rendered entirely in sharply delineated black, white, and orange.

Swedish director of the film, Jonas Åkerlund is known for directing music videos and is a drummer himself, so one can infer the amount of attention he put into the score for this film and the amount of confidence he has in deadmau5. Many graphic-novel-turned-films have been hailed for their mellifluous score working seamlessly with violent choreography. Given Polar‘s beginnings as a comic, the trailer/EP release, and general plot — the sonic tone is sure to hold weight over this momentum and success of this film.

The main and title track of the EP “midas heel” comes off as a six-minute requiem, dark, brooding, and cold. The steady tech beat accompanied by sharp violin, and synths plucking have the listener looking over their shoulders, scanning their peripherals, and grasping for the warmth of a recently fired gun. It is stalking filled with lulls for doubt to seep in and remains distant yet within arms reach for the duration of the track as if it could touch you the entire time.

The full soundtrack, entirely produced by deadmau5, will drop Jan 25 the same day as Polar becomes available for streaming on Netflix.
