Watch Martin Garrix’s fateful fall and recovery in the return of ‘The Martin Garrix Show’Martin Garri Breach

The Martin Garrix Show has returned for its fourth season, and the 13-minute episode recaps Martin Garrix‘s EDC Las Vegas performance and takes listeners on the journey of how he injured his ankle in Las Vegas that same week.

The producer starts the episode by returning to EDC for his sixth year, and REZZ makes a cameo when she asks Garrix if he still gets nervous before big performances like EDC (he does). Garrix proceeds to perform at Wet Republic and Omnia until he takes the fateful fall that resulted in the producer canceling his upcoming shows. Viewers can see behind-the-scenes footage from the hospital and watch the producer recuperate wheelchair-bound in his home in Amsterdam while he waits to get his MRI.

In his home, Garrix tells the full story of the fall. It occurred when he was performing at Omnia during his 10th day in Las Vegas, and because he is smaller, he always utilizes a riser so that he looks taller for the crowd. When landing after a jump off of the DJ booth, his foot landed on the edge of the riser, causing his ankle to snap as he fell into a glass wall behind the booth. After taking a break in the green room immediately after the fall, Garrix returned to the booth to finish out his set against his team’s will before heading to the hospital.

Insomniac announces return of Camp EDC for Las Vegas arm’s 10th anniversaryJamie Rosenberg For Insomniac Events 10 1

Camp EDC is back and better than ever for 2020, as Insomniac announces the festival feature’s return to EDC Las Vegas. The resurrected campground will see its third run outside of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway bowl, teasing a volume of exhilarating surprises and announcements for the upcoming installment.

Camp EDC has grown from an elaborate playground, to a full-fledged partier’s paradise within walking distance of the festival grounds. From luminous art installations to the four central Oasis swimming pools, Camp EDC treats its members with a whirlwind of amenities and activities to complete their weekend in the desert. 

What may have started as a mere complementary addition to the already over-the-top, three-day festival, has morphed into an elaborate outdoors extension of the EDC experience. Camp EDC operates with the same fixations as the flagship festival, with organizers maintaining they’ve erected the space on the values of positivity, love, and inclusivity. Each corner of the campgrounds offers a new sight in store, with the heart of the activities hosted in The Mesa. Marked with three mountainous structures, aptly named the Sol, Cascada and Tierra tents, each tent hosts a handful of scheduled health, wellness, and beauty activities throughout the day for campers to participate in. 

Daily label-hosted pool parties for this past year’s installment welcomed a slew of artists from Bassrush, Hard Records and Insomniac Records set to soundtrack each day. As campers trudged back to their tent sites, their walk was cut short from the sounds of 6:00 am after-parties hosted in the heart of the campgrounds. While the sun rose each morning, the campgrounds were reignited through high-energy sets from artists like Solardo and Dom Dolla and an elusive sunrise REDUX set from Kaskade

Moon Glow and Desert Rose (symbolic of GA and VIP) tent packages for Camp EDC will be available for sale on September 27 at 9:00am PT. Following last year’s model, festival ticket holders are able to purchase their Moon Glow or Desert Rose (symbolic of GA and VIP) camping passes separately to secure their spots in the campgrounds.

In advance of next year’s festivities, Camp EDC has revealed the official site maps for the Mesa, and campgrounds. For more information and to purchase camping passes, head here.

San Holo releases most reflective track to date with first solo single of 2019, ‘Lost Lately’San Holo Freddy Mercury Stance Goldrush Rukes

San Holo is here with his first standalone track of 2019, and the release could be the producer’s most honest offering to date. “Lost Lately” is a continuation of Holo’s mounting attempts to open up to fans, which came to a crest at his EDC Las Vegas performance after priming Twitter that the set would be his most “emotional set to date.”

The vocals of “Lost Lately” take the listener through the ebbs and flows of achieving success and ultimately feeling lost and pondering one’s purpose in life. Holo taps into heavily vocoded vocals for added texture, while blending melodic synths into the backdrop amidst a kicking beat.

“But then what happens when that fantasy you’ve always dreamed about suddenly becomes real?” Holo questioned in a recent press release tracing the inspiration for the track. “And you re-live that fantasy over and over every night? Getting used to this lifestyle made me feel kind of lost.”

“Lost Lately” is out via San Holo’s own imprint, bitbird.

Good Morning Mix: REZZ’s supernatural set at EDC Las Vegas 2019

Good Morning Mix: REZZ’s supernatural set at EDC Las Vegas 2019DA WM 93

REZZ put her transcontinental cult (and undoubtedly a few unsuspecting victims) in a beautifully bemused trance this past May at the annual Las Vegas installment of Electric Daisy Carnival.

This particular witching hour is full of unearthly surprises, like warped bludgeons of wonky, free-form bass, titillating transitions (see Linkin Park “One Step Closer” into “Alien,” near the midpoint) even a nasty dose of drumstep. And you can bet your bottom dollar it’s a real REZZ riot when you hear the crowd sing along to the lyric-less, diabolical bass rhythm of “Edge.”

REZZ also took the opportunity to invite Underoath drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie, whom she’s formerly expressed interest in working with, onstage to perform their forthcoming collaborative track, “Falling.” The unreleased song appears on the official tracklist for REZZ’s impending EP, Beyond The Senses.

Good Morning Mix: Zeds Dead provide throwback session for episode 100 of Deadbeats Radio

Good Morning Mix: Zeds Dead provide throwback session for episode 100 of Deadbeats RadioHdotd12 080

In the modern age of electronic music, an endless amount of producers claim to have an affinity for every genre. Yet there are only a handful who really put in the time and effort to create a catalog that encompasses multiple tempos, sounds, and styles. Chief among those select few—Zeds Dead.

However, despite their ever-expanding library of different styles of electronic music (accelerated further by their multi-genre label, Deadbeats), those who have been with D.C. and Hooks since the beginning know that dubstep holds a special place in the Canadian duo’s hearts.

Seminal tracks from early in their careers like “Rude Boy,” “In The Beginning,” and “Adrenaline,” gave them a platform to succeed, and they were going to honor their roots at EDC Vegas this year with a surprise throwback set at BassPod Sunday night. Unfortunately, high winds on Saturday night forced RL Grime to cancel his set. In response Zeds Dead graciously offered him their surprise slot on Sunday, preventing them from performing their throwback set.

Those circumstances may have been a blessing in disguise though. Rather than play the throwback set for only one crowd to hear, Zeds Dead have released the set as episode 100 of Deadbeats Radio. Now, fans can enjoy the headbanging nostalgia over and over.

The mix is primarily dubstep tracks from Zed Dead’s own catalog as well as legends of the genre like Caspa, Skrillex, and Emalkay. It also features house, drum ‘n’ bass, and other heavy-handed offerings. Get down with Zeds Dead below.

EDC attendee’s boyfriend charged with attempted murder after she went ‘against his wishes’

EDC attendee’s boyfriend charged with attempted murder after she went ‘against his wishes’Edclv 1

A Las Vegas man named Ryan Mansour has been charged with attempted murder following a dispute with his girlfriend over attending EDC “against his wishes.” According to authorities, the fight began on Tuesday after the festival when the suspect angrily left his work early to confront his significant other over pictures he found of her at the Speedway gathering. At some point amid the fighting, which also involved endeavors to throw out shared memorabilia, the girlfriend (whose name has been redacted) got into her boyfriend’s car. Upon her exit from the vehicle, he allegedly ran her over in a bout of rage.

Mansour claims the accident was unintentional, advising he wasn’t paying attention on account of his anger and that he’d “made a dumb mistake,” according to his lawyer. Immediately after noticing what he’d done, he’d immediately began to “jack the car up” to get his girlfriend out from underneath. Luckily, her life was saved; but she did sustain injuries which include skin and liver lacerations, a collapsed lung, and a broken arm, leg, and pelvis. The suspect is currently in jail with a $25,000 bail posted.

Closing out a stage at EDC Las Vegas is an intimidating task for any artist, but the burgeoning WHIPPED CREAM did so with ease. The Canadian-born bass artist held nothing back as she took the festival’s Circuit Grounds stage for its final run, giving onlookers a final, enormous burst of energy with cuts like Gesaffelstein‘s “Pursuit,” Skrillex‘ remix of “Humble” by Kendrick Lamar, the RL Grime/What So Not classic “Tell Me,” and an array of her own originals. The set riled the crowd and instantly became a cult favorite among EDC goers, and now the cult favorite performance has been releases exclusively on Apple Music for all to hear and relive.

WHIPPED CREAM has seen skyrocketing success in recent years. After five years cutting her teeth on the circuit, the past couple have seen her taking the stage at mega festivals like Ultra Miami, Shambhala, and Lollapalooza all while selling out tour stops across North America. On the musical front, her recent re-work of ZHU’s “Desert Woman” ended up becoming a huge hit, while she also received widespread support for her second record on Mad Decent, “Time.” She’s established herself as a key talent to watch as she continues her ascension into the top ranks of bass music.

Chris Lake – Stay With MeChris Lake

Chris Lake continues to define and perfect tech house with his latest release “Stay With Me.” The producer is fresh off of his EDC Las Vegas set, and looks forward to a b2b set with FISHER in NYC, which sold out in less than a day.

The track initially follows the layout one might expect from Chris Lake, encapsulating the listener in a pulsing tech house backdrop with groovy basslines and soaring vocals. It builds and builds upon itself until climax, when it explodes into a robotic, melody-laced cacophony of synth riffs and heady percussion. It’s a piece built for live performance, and is expected to rile up dancefloors in NYC and across the world as Lake continues his joint tour.

“Stay With Me” is out now via his own Black Book Records.
