In October of 2018, Seven Lions teamed up with SLANDER and Dabin to release blissful single, “First Time,” on Seven Lions’ imprint Ophelia Records. Dylan Matthew is the vocalist on the original track, and he has come forward with his own acoustic version of the song, showcasing the beautiful melody in a new light.

Matthew gives his stunning vocals the spotlight, filtering out the electronic elements in favor of powerful piano melodies that serve as the perfect complement to his vocals. He has also ensured that there will be no questioning his talent thanks to the fact that he live recorded the music video for the release featuring simply himself playing the piano. “First Time” was not the singer’s first electronic collaboration, having previously worked with ARMNHMR and Nolan van Lith on “Alone” in addition to SLANDER and Kayzo on release “Without You.”

Valentino Khan and Kayzo have given us a musical shot of “Novocaine.” It serves as their first release of the year. Both artists are known for their heavy-hitting releases, and this collaboration is no exception thanks to its intense drops and unrelenting energy. The track begins with hardstyle-influenced kicks that lead into jarring and distorted synths, effectively numbing the eardrums before drilling into the sonic cavity with a heavy dose of bass.

Khan and Kayzo have recently announced big tour plans, with Khan making his debut at the legendary Hollywood Palladium and Kayzo embarking upon an ‘Unleashed’ tour, which he’s advised will contain the biggest production he has had for a show yet. “Novocaine” will be a fitting addition to the artist’s respective sets, and the track is out now via Diplo‘s Mad Decent.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is back to dominating the headlines thanks to an all-encompassing, star-abundant collection of artists who will be performing at the 2019 iteration of the Indio, CA-based music festival. The next chapter of the legendary soiree has not met the media’s gaze without its fair share of controversy, mainly Kanye West dropping out of the lineup due to what he recently referred to as “artistically limiting” stage design.

On a brighter note, 2019 will be the first year fans will be able to live stream the festival for both weekend one and two. In previous years, fans were limited to the festival’s first weekend exclusively for streaming capabilities. Now fans across the world will be able to watch back-to-back weekends of acts including DJ Snake, Kayzo, Bassnectar, Ariana Grande, and more. The live streaming for Coachella 2019 commences the first weekend, April 12th-14th, rolling all the way through to the next, which spans April 19th-21st.

From Skrillex to Kayzo, many DJs have been tempted to try their hands at remixing Travis Scott‘s chart dominating “Sicko Mode.” The latest to join the list of artists stepping up the the Astroworld standout is none other than Diplo, although his rework of the original is more festive than it is transformative.

Diplo enlists Walshy Fire, Ape Drums, and company on a private plane for the ultimate Christmas re-think of “Sicko Mode,” fake rapping his newly written holiday-themed “Santa Mode” lyrics. The original track is an undoubted hit, but Diplo’s timely Christmas cut actually manages to hold up — we might need a full version.

Saturday Night Session 004: Kayzo keeps punk rock alive and the energy high in his 2018 Electric Zoo setKayzo Yoder Productions PC

Kayzo‘s music does anything but blend into the current output from the electronic music scene. This is thanks to his eclectic fusion of screamo, punk rock, and heavy-hitting electronic notes into unique productions that continue to stand out as a fresh take on electronic music and pop. He’s maintained originality all through his comeup, placing himself as a particularly unique talent within the current crossover pool.

The LA-based producer is known for keeping the energy high during his live sets, which makes his music perfect to start off a Saturday night with. We’ve chosen his Electric Zoo set from this past fall for this edition of Saturday Night Sessions; it takes listeners through a hectic, but pleasing journey that floats between bringing back pop punk tracks that graced airwaves 10 years ago and steep dubstep drops. Of course, he adds plenty of his own work into the mix.

For those who reminisce back to the days of Papa Roach, The Killers, or even early Skrillex releases, Kayzo is an artist to follow — so get started with this savage hour-long mix.

Breaking: EDC Orlando’s main stage catches fire on second night [Video]EDC Orlando 2018 2

Today, November 10, as the Orlando installation of Electric Daisy Carnival in Tinker Field entered into its second night, a fire brought festivities to a temporary halt. Bass music producer Kayzo had recently begun his set on the Kinetic Fields stage when a fire erupted on the top right corner of the structure, as seen in video footage captured by a writer for EDM Sauce below:

Orlando Sentinel reports that the fire was caused when pyrotechnic effects ignited a portion of the screen display, at which point the DJ cut his set short.

Orlando Fire Department spokesperson Ashley Papagni states that the fire was contained upon OFD’s arrival, the Sentinel reports. In a tweet, Insomniac head Pasquale Rotella reiterated this statement, encouraging fans that the show would resume once the conditions are confirmed to be fully safe to do so.

No evacuation has been ordered, and Papagni told the Sentinel that no injuries have been reported. Kayzo is set to play another set at the venue’s Corona Beach Stage later in the night, as well as an afterparty for the event.

Kayzo releases heavy metal dubstep hybrid, ‘WASTED SPACE,’ alongside rock veterans Underoath

Kayzo releases heavy metal dubstep hybrid, ‘WASTED SPACE,’ alongside rock veterans UnderoathKayzo Underoath

Kayzo has come full circle on his latest release, linking with veteran metal band, Underoath on a new single, “WASTED SPACE.” The track’s cutting vocals are accompanied by running guitar that quickly dives into full screamo territory. Punk-inspired percussion elements build the anticipation, culminating in headbang-primed guttural screams from Underoath’s lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain. The complementary nature of bass music and post-hardcore rock create an ideal crossover environment for the unadulterated dance-punk mayhem that Kayzo crafts on his latest.

The Florida-native metal titans were an inspiration to a younger Kayzo during his days as a hockey player. Says Kayzo,

“When I was  told  of  the  opportunity  to  work  with  Underoath,  it  brought  me  back  to my  hockey  days  prior  to  music.  Their album They’re  Only  Chasing  Safety was  on  heavy  rotation  for  me  during my  athletic  career.”

The new single follows Kayzo’s “FAKE FAKE FAKE,” which features the emo stylings of Italian punk rock band XO Sad. The Icon Collective graduate was also enlisted by Papa Roach to do a re-work to their massively popular, “Last Resort,” earlier this year, and reps for the Houston-born DJ suggest Kayzo has a lot more rock-influenced electronic material in the chamber.

KAYZO seems to have the scene on lock-down since his rather recent, thunderous entrance. The perpetual bass-wielder put out his riot-inducing debut album less than a year ago; and yet, he still hasn’t missed a beat–endlessly toiling away in the studio, procuring tracks on a semi-regular basis.

KAYZO’s latest, “FAKE FAKE FAKE” is a fiery douse of dubstep tinged with more than a hint of sadness. The latter comes with help from a recent Becko alias, xo sad, fusing morose punk/screamo-infused vocals, grinding guitar chords, and pelting bass melodies. The track depicts a trouncing tale of heartbreak: “You’re the reason I still hate / Is this really what you wanted?”

An emotional KAYZO took to Twitter to designate the release a memorable milestone along his rather nascent sonic voyage: “I’m finding my sound and I couldn’t be happier. I love you guys. Thank you for following me on this journey.”

KAYZO and Gammer are have teamed up for a new track titled “Forever,” and the result is is as gargantuan as one might expect from a collaboration between these two powerhouses. It starts off in a deceptively melodic way, but this peace is only temporary. Soon, the beautiful opening falls into bouncy chords and an enchanting vocals that cascade over a raunchy drop. Their robotic weapons in store, the two collaborators douse their audiences in headbang-inducing chaos that operates as a weapon on the dancefloor.

“Forever” is out now via Ultra Music. Prior to merging his talents with Gammer, KAYZO had been immersed in an immense tour schedule which has seen his name pop up on a variety of iconic festival rosters. His latest single, an edit of Papa Roach’s “Last Resort,” gave a taste of the influence the LA-based producer would have on his Gammer collaboration. Gammer in the meantime has been putting out his own grimey series of bass-infused house and dub records, percolating until “Forever’s” release.
