The joint music festival and carnival will host a handful of hip-hop and trap artists over the weekend, with headliners Carnage and Zeds Dead closing out each night. Attendees can also catch performances from rap artists Pusha T and Lil Baby over the course of the weekend, and spend time between sets on the abundance of carnival rides across the board walk.

Carnage has announced he’s taking a break from the music industry in an Instagram post, citing his mental and physical health as reasons for the respite. He was set to embark on the 12-day Unusual Suspects Tour as a supporting act alongside Smokepurpp, with Gucci Mane headlining the endeavor.

After releasing his second studio album Battered Bruised & Bloody, featuring big names such as the late Mac Miller, as well as Lil Pump, Lil B, Steve Aoki, Migos and more, Carnage’s 2018 has also been filled with a jam-packed tour schedule of performances filled with high-intensity party surroundings.

In the post, “Thirty Rack” mentioned, “having close friends pass due to this stuff really scares the fuck out of me,” likely alluding to Avicii and the more recently deceased Miller: both fellow collaborators of his. Carnage disclosed that his therapist and doctor recommended he take time off, and the break is simply a warranted recharge.

NMF Roundup: Markus Schulz delivers some summer heat, Robotaki teams up with Mike Clay, Liquid Stranger drops some free form + moreOcaso Festival Tamarindo By Pablo Murillo 06 01 2018 1184

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Sleepy Tom and Youngblood team up for a catchy collaboration, “In My Head.” It’s both refined and dance floor-ready, aided by dreamy vocals.


Markus Schulz taps Capital Cities‘ SEBU for an infectious original, “Upon My Shoulders.” Acoustic guitar melodies and wistful vocals from SEBU make this the perfect end-of-summer anthem.


Lively horn stabs and an invigorating beat fuel Toyboy & Robin‘s new release, “Horn It.” The London duo’s latest is out via Nothing Else Matters.


Georgia Ku lends her enchanting voice to this new collaboration between Captain Cuts and Zookëper. “Do You Think About Me” is highlighted by chopped-up vocals and a lively house beat.


Carnage celebrates this week’s 8/08 day with a ferocious trap number featuring Sludge. He builds into the song with ominous choir-like vocals and a call of “El Diablo” to kick off the drop.


Tom Tyger, Charles B and VCTRY channel old-school house vibes in their unexpected collaboration, One Too Many.” The track is out now via Protocol Recordings.


LUUDE says he’s “actually been sitting on this one since the start of 2017 and never finished it” until now. “Omen” is highlighted by hefty bass and a dark vibe.


Robotaki has delivered “a song from my heart to yours” in his latest, “Brooklyn ’95.” He taps Mike Clay for the track’s vocals, adding to the laid-back atmosphere he exudes.


A month after releasing his “Erase” remix package featuring Arty and Lights, FRND has come out with a sentimental new single, “Before U I Didn’t Exist.”


Liquid Stranger brings eerie, spacey wobbles in his newest original, “Gunslinger.” The free form bass track features Pistol and is out now via WAKAAN.

GRAVEDGR – RAMPAGE

GRAVEDGR - RAMPAGE

Carnage’s Heavyweight Records is no stranger to dropping aggressive electro and the imprint’s latest signee, GRAVEDGR’s debut single “Rampage” saves no seconds for subtlety. Debuted at EDC Las Vegas this year, “Rampage” wastes no time punching you in the rips.

Right from the jump, saws serrate and tear through the mix in a thunderous assault. If Jason Vorhees had a song playing on an endless loop banging around his deranged mind — it would be this one.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.

Carnage teamed up with Steve Aoki and Lockdown for “Plur Genocide.” The most impressive thing about this track is that it could be a contender to beat out The Chainsmoker‘s “Selfie” as electronic music’s most annoying track.

Anjunabeats released an epic remix by Cosmic Gate for Gabriel & Dresden‘s “Only Road” featuring Sub Teal.

The Funk Hunters dropped the second track off of their upcoming album with groovy “Party Rockin.”

Dash Berlin and DBSTF teamed up for catchy progressive track featuring Josie Nelson “Save Myself.”

Bailo has created the perfect radio hit and club drop with new release “Rush” featuring M.E. Swank and Sauce.

Everyone can breathe easy because that ID that Martin Garrix, David Guetta, and Brooks have been teasing for months is finally out, and it is just as good as we thought it would be.

Chris Lake infuses a surprising drop with pulsing chords in “Turn Off The Lights.”

G-House fans can get their fix with Dustycloud’s newest release “Move.”

DJ Zinc and Chris Lorenzo fuse piercing chords with smooth beats in their VIP Mix of “Gammy Elbow.”

Mokita’s soulful new track “When I See You” is the perfect electronic pop track to unwind to after a long day at work.

There is no lack of energy in Deorro’s hardstyle release “Offspring,” which samples his own son’s voice.

Danny Avila slows it down with his remix of Marshmello and Selena Gomez’s “Wolves.”
