Stream both weekends of Coachella for the first time ever [Schedule]Coachella

Coachella is ensuring those unable to attend this year’s installment of its painfully cool congregation of music and art can still soak up the excitement from home. The perennially pored-over affair has confirmed over 50 artists to be featured on the festival’s live stream schedule throughout its two-weekend duration (April 12 – 14/19 – 21), for the first time ever.

The official stream, which will be live through the Coachella YouTube channel, divvies up dance music slots among the likes of Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, Bob Moses, Bassnectar, Gorgon City, and more. Feverishly anticipated performances from Ariana Grande, Weezer, Billie Eilish will also be available at their respective set times.

Since the festival’s inclusion of a second weekend in 2012, one-weekend streaming (typically the first) has been the standard. But this year, viewers can trace both first and second legs, with the latter, dubbed Coachella Curated, equipped with supplemental content in the form of “full Yuma Tent sets, performances and more.”

All times are listed as PST, and the number next to the performer denotes the streaming channel they’ll be featured on. See the full Coachella livestream schedule below.

Diplo presents The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party, led by Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Major Lazer, Miguel

What Diplo wants, Diplo gets, specifically the first-ever Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival. If the length of the name tells us anything, it’s that the seminal Mad Decent festival is sure to be one hell of a doozy, as the newly minted event’s lineup confirms. Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Major Lazer, and Miguel head the festival, which will manifest as a fine balance of highly sought electronic acts and equally illustrious hip-hop artists alike.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, Pusha T, and J.I.D. round out the festival’s hip-hop inclusions, while Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, REZZ, Ekali, Troyboi, Baauer, and Whethan comprise some of Diplo’s dance picks. The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival also casts glances at talent from genres beyond the electronic and hip-hop spheres, to draw the stylistically malleable Quinn XCII, R&B’s Pink Sweat$ and Jesse Reyez, and Finneas out.

Needless to say, the inaugural Mad Decent Block Party branded affair is a must attend for many reasons, primary of which—at least, for dance music fans—is Major Lazer’s occupancy of a headlining slot. Diplo previously intimated that Major Lazer will likely dissolve after delivering their fourth—and probably final—album together, in a January interview with Complex. As such, The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival might well be one of Major Lazer’s last large-scale performances.

The unveiling of The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival’s lineup comes just after Mad Decent Block Party Festival tweeted out a video with a particularly suggestive caption on April 5: “IT’S HAPPENING.” While the far from subtle warning altered past attendees of Diplo’s multi-city Mad Decent Block Party party series to be ready for a followup announcement regarding the fate of a MDBP festival, Diplo’s presentation of a full-fledged lineup has presumably taken many by surprise, given how quickly it succeeded the preliminary Twitter hint that a MDBP festival was in the works.

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party will descend upon Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts for two days of fun, come July 20-21. Tickets to the festival will go on sale at 10 a.m. EST April 12.

Billie Eilish releases debut album, ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’

Billie Eilish has liberated her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? With an air of authenticity, listeners are gifted a peek into the mind of the talented singer and songwriter, who uses her sultry voice to express a contrast of apathy and pain throughout the project. Her center-stage vocals are surrounded by the haunting and heavy production from her brother, Finneas O’Connell, that showcase a beauty in minimalistic pop with a lo-fi edge. The harmonies between Eilish’s voice, sometimes artfully stacked, and tasteful melodies are another strong point in the producer’s repertoire.

The maturity in her music is certainly impressive, at the young age of 17. She released four singles before unleashing the rest of the 14-track LP: “you should see me in a crown,” “wish you were gay,” “when the party’s over,” and “bury a friend.” This includes an intro where Eilish takes out her Invisalign, a proper introduction to the personality that follows.

Diplo plans to reinvent Mad Decent Block Party into mega festival, Mad City

Mad Decent Block Party may be making a return and Diplo wants the party to be bigger than ever. The California producer has reportedly been building an ambitious proposal aimed at throwing what’s being called a “Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival” with SGE Entertainment—the company that produced festivals like Lost Lands and Moonrise. Luckily, the mouthful is being shortened simply to “Mad City.” Diplo’s infamous block parties grew from his a small Philly outdoor affair and skyrocketed in popularity to a circuit of block parties and eventually an ill-fated cruise. Despite 2018 only seeing one Mad Decent Block Party, it seems the event brand could be gearing up for its biggest iteration yet in 2019.

If approved, the “Mad City” festival will take place at the Brockton Fairgrounds in Massachusetts on July 20-21 with a proposed capacity of 37,000 people—the largest festival the city would host. Major Lazer and Billie Eilish will reportedly headline with Diplo acting as a main curator. Performances are expected to last from noon until 11pm on both days.

Diplo’s lofty sights have already seen pushback; the team’s initial application has been rejected by the Brockton License Commission on the basis of being too big to handle in regards to safety. Initially, Diplo planned on announcing a complete artist roster on March 25, but the opposition from city officials against the festival will most likely set their team back a bit.

Gear up for Lollapalooza with DA’s 12 most anticipated performancesLollapalooza Chhicago 2018

Lollapalooza is this weekend in Chicago, and Dancing Astronaut is hosting a live stream of the music festival.

With headliners such as The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and Travis Scott, the festival’s 27th year in existence should be one for the ages. After changing to a four-day event in 2016, Lollapalooza is easily one of the top-attended music festivals in the United States.

Below are 12 of the most anticipated Lollapalooza performances from an electronic music perspective.


REZZ

“Space mom” is a must-see for any festival. She’s performing Thursday at 7:15 p.m. CDT, and her new album, Certain Kind Of Magic, comes out Friday on mau5trap. REZZ was just featured on the cover of DJ Mag‘s August issue.

ODESZA

After killer sets at Red Rocks and Panorama, ODESZA looks to bring their massive live-electronic show with their big synths, drum line, and stellar light show. The duo is the headliner of EDM at Lollapalooza, and there are rumors of a potential Foreign Family festival in 2019.

Rusko

After beating cancer, the British dubstep pioneer is back in action. He dropped his Has Made Five More Songs EP, this year, and the flag-bearer of contemporary dubstep knows how to throw down, recently coming off supporting Zeds Dead in London. Dubstep whomps at 6 p.m. CDT Friday? Yes, please.

Billie Eilish

The 16-year-old from California had her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me, rank on Billboard‘s top 200 list. The distraught yet swagged-out teen recently had a tarantula emerge from her mouth for the new single, you should see me in a crown. Imagine what the eclectic and eccentric young trendsetter will bring to the stage.

Dillon Francis

The budding actor, director, and TV writer is also one of the most sought-after festival DJs. With six releases from his upcoming WUT WUT album on Francis’ new IDGAFOS imprint, working with Comedy Central on Living The Dream, his own show Like & Subscribe, and One Deeper Talks with DJ Hanzel; EDM’s funny man has been busy this summer.  Playing Friday at 8:30 p.m. CDT, Francis’ live set will be a perfect way to start the weekend shenanigans.

Tycho

Cool your jets to the easy-going electronic ambiance of Scott Hansen aka Tycho. The musician, composer, producer, songwriter, photographer, and designer is a true embodiment of an artist. With a variety of genre’s at Lollapalooza, Tycho will be a nice escape into the serene 9 p.m. CDT on Thursday.

Post Malone

With one of Billboard‘s top albums for the past two months, beerbongs & bentleys, Malone is a must-see. His happy-go-lucky attitude, infectious smile, and daydreaming vibe will create an ambiance of love, partying, and good harmony.

Illenium

Future bass maven, Nicholas D. Miller, will put on a beautiful set with big synths 7:15 p.m. CDT Saturday. He’s been diving into harder productions, recently teaming up with Excision on their new track, “Gold (Stupid Love)” featuring Shallows. Last month, Illenium released a massive 15-track remix package for his 2017 Awake album.

Chromeo

Having released their fifth studio album, Head Over Heals, this summer, the veteran FUNKLORDZ look towards filling the electro-funk void. After cancelling shows earlier in July due to mental health issues, the duo is back in action and will not disappoint fans of funk, dance & hip-hop.

Tyler, The Creator

He just released a new music video with A$AP Rocky for their single, “Potato Salad.” The Odd Future fashion, lifestyle, and content icon finally received critic recognition on his Flower Boy album last year. His set is sure to be one of a kind.

Galantis

The live electronic duo from Sweden will keep spirits uplifted with melodies and drops a-plenty. According to their Twitter, they’ve also got something special planned for Lollapalooza.

Zedd

Germany and pop music’s EDM headliner and Billboard chart-topper will not disappoint. He’s playing at 8:30 p.m. CDT on Saturday. His newest song is “Happy Now” featuring Elley Duhé.

Billie Eilish drops off her own take on Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’

Billie Eilish drops off her own take on Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’Billie Eilish

In the wake of Drake‘s new double album, Scorpion, Billie Eilish has paid homage to the OVO figurehead with the release of a folk cover of Drake’s ubiquitous 2016 hit, “Hotline Bling.” The cover is a staple of Eilish’s setlist, simply just her and a ukulele on stage, a far cry from Drizzy’s sweeping meme-fuel music video, anchoring her rendition to her standalone vocals.

Her smokey vocals cast a breath of purity that’s made her one of the freshest emerging singer/songwriters currently on the scene. On the second verse, Eilish’s voice takes a backseat, invoking a fleeting, mysterious ambiance, allowing other elements of the production to take center stage. Celebrating Drizzy’s double LP, which broke the single day streaming record at 132 million streams on release day, the 16-year-old said on Twitter, “CONGRATS ON SCORPION DRAKE i luv u dad.”

TroyBoi reworks Billie Eilish’s ‘my boy’ into astonishing trap-laden ‘MyBoi’

This post was originally published on this site

TroyBoi

Billie Eilish left an indelible mark on pop music in 2017 and proved to be a fervent artist whose haunting, harmony-filled ballads diminish any and all suspected innocence. Despite her young age, Eilish’s immensely talented and brimming with fervent passion. After the release of her debut album, don’t smile at me, mid-2017, she’s already seen an official remix for “COPYCAT” from the vastly-ascending indie-pop duo, Sofi Tukker, and now, London’s trap auteur TroyBoi has taken on “my boy.”

With vocals as sultry and dulcetly-delivered as Eilish’s, it’s small wonder TroyBoi was able to create a compelling rework. Though as much as Eilish’s vocals are compelling, TroyBoi’s tempo modifications candidly elevate “my boy” to the tempestuous “MyBoi.” With chopped vocals, intricate hi-hats, substantial kicks, and bass-laden flair, TroyBoi sees Eilish’s “my boy” and raises it to anthemic trap heights.

Billie Eilish joins Vince Staples for fiery new single

This post was originally published on this site

15-year-old singer-songwriter Billie Eilish released her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me, in August. Vince Staples, meanwhile, released Big Fish Theory, which was largely regarded as one of the best electronic hip-hop albums of the year. Now, the two mavens have connected on a new track “&Burn,” an alternative version to the Eilish-led “Watch.” “&Burn” is a slowly stoked track, and while Staples’ vocals are fleeting, they linger into a quite combustible effect.

Eilish recently told The FADER that Staples was her first choice of collaborator and that she had originally come out of the studio with two different take ideas for the track.“This version felt like it would be perfect with someone as a feature,” she said. “Vince Staples was my NUMBER 1 choice, so when we got him to hear it and he agreed to do, it was incredible and the verse he did is so mf good! He is a god and I’m excited for it to finally come out!”

Watch Billie Eilish’s fiery new music video for ‘watch’

This post was originally published on this site

15-year-old Billie Eilish has been busy making waves in the pantheon of pop. Over the course of the last year,  the young “pop prodigy,” as hailed by Billboard, has created her own distinguished niche with her sound. Artists including Tove Lo, Charli XCX, and Lorde have lauded the young star via social media with numerous endorsements. Now, naturally fans are wondering what’s next for an artist who’s already dabbled in spaces so far apart, emanating an artist both dainty and edgy all at once.

For now, it comes by way of Eilish’s stunning new music video entitled “watch.”

Eilish’s newest, “watch,” off her debut don’t smile at me EP released last month via Interscope, is a tune written by her brother Finneas O’Connell. In its video installment, Eilish delivers perhaps her most stunning performance to date, though the track alone is a fiery number in its own right. The emotionally intune Eilish deals with setting fire to a toxic relationship.  “I’ll sit and watch your car burn / With the fire that you started in me,” Eilish sings in the track’s infectious hook. Eilish sits atop a ladder in the video, wrestling with versions of herself, ruminating on how bad relationships affect one’s self too.

“Like, in a relationship, you’re not just in a relationship with that person—you’re in a relationship with that person being in a relationship with you. And you have to have a relationship with yourself to understand how they’re perceiving you… you have to be aware of what you do and what you say. And if you’re self-aware enough—like, this person is treating me really badly, and I feel like nothing, and I feel like waste and not worth anything, then it’s time to leave that relationship!”
