Jauz has been relatively quiet and cryptic with his social media movements lately, though the LA-based producer has now broken his silence with an exciting update.  Fans can now move up to the edge of their seats with the official announcement of Jauz’ upcoming concept album The Wise and The Wicked, set to be released on August 31.

The “Squad Out” producer isn’t going with your average 12-track compilation and calling it a day, either. There will be 23 tracks on the album, and Jauz has structured them to fall within different ‘chapters’ because there will be three overarching themes to describe the album’s complexion. Jauz explained how and why he organized the album the way he did, stating,

“When I’m writing music, half of my brain wants to write fun, crazy bangers for parties, clubs, [festivals], etc. This is represented by ‘The Wicked.’ The other half of the time, I want to write emotional, intelligent, experimental music that feeds the ‘inner-artist’ in myself, which is represented by ‘The Wise.’ The middle ground, which is where I strive to really be, is a blend of the melodic, emotional parts of my music paired with high energy drops and climaxes. This is represented by ‘The United.’”

Collaborators on the album include Ducky, Krewella, and Adventure Club among many more. This is in addition to DJ Snake, Snails, and Example from releases “Gassed Up,” “Motherfuckers,” and “In The Zone” respectively that have already made their way out to fans in previous releases. The final track on the album, titled “Super Fly” featuring 666, is the last single that will be released before the full album is available.

R3HAB is back with another major collaboration — this time, featuring the singer/songwriter gone viral Lia Marie Johnson. After releases with A-listers KSHMR and Krewella over the past few months, the Amsterdam native is able to target another huge fan base (other than his own) with Johnson’s massive YouTube following.

“The Wave” features captivating lyrics that’ll take listeners right into beach season, with a slower tempo that centers in on major-scaling piano chords, up-beat synths and looped, interchanging vocal-motifs. Both talents have proved their aptitude in catchy production techniques, and have certainly wielded their abilities in full for this single.

Lookas releases long-awaited ‘Lucid’ EP

Following the success of “Eclipse” and Krewella collaboration, “Alarm,” Miami native Lookas has finally unveiled his debut 2018 Lucid EP on Monstercat, featuring the first two singles alongside a brand new track titled “On My Own.” Fans got a little taste of Lookas’ signature, hard-hitting sound on the first single, while the producer showcased his varied production talents on the next two.

On one end of the musical spectrum, “Alarm” demonstrates his capacity for a toned-down, pop sound while on the other end, Lookas accompanies a brand new track with a brand new sound, stepping into the world of future bass with captivating deep synths and vocal motifs.

R3HAB & Krewella – Ain’t That Why

This post was originally published on this site

R3HAB‘s transition from electro house hopeful into full-blown crossover king has come to the tune of hundreds of millions of streams and a notable domination of the digital streaming world. Having spent the time since his debut album TROUBLE fuelling the market with stellar remixes for the likes of Rita Ora and Sigrid, the latest single from his own R3HAB Music imprint follows-up on recent KSHMR club collab “Islands,” landing alongside diligent US dance duo Krewella. A fusion of blissful future bass infused pop, the Krewella sister’s distinctive vocal chops flow seamlessly alongside the tracks bouncy and well tempered production values. It’s the kind of coherent and carefully balanced electronic pop we’ve come to expect from R3HAB – an artist who seems incapable of doing anything by the half measure here in 2017.

Pegboard Nerds drop ‘Another Round’ featuring Krewella

This post was originally published on this site

It’s been a long time coming, but Pegboard Nerds‘ “Another Round” with Krewella is finally here. The two superstar duos have collaborated on a number of tracks over the years, but had left one unfinished until now.

“Another Round” showcases Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf’s empowered vocals layered over top of a playful house beat. It’s reminiscent of both artists’ early days breaking into the dance music scene, focused on creating an atmosphere where listeners can escape their problems and live in the music.

Turns out “Another Round” has been a long time coming, too. Pegboard Nerds shared their thoughts on how the track came to fruition.

“We actually started producing ‘Another Round’ in Hollywood over 2 years ago, together with Krewella and Fernando Garibay at his studio. At the time it was decided to let the track sit for a while as we were writing even more songs and decided to focus on a different sound and direction. The track kind of stuck with us all though, and finally we were able to complete it and put it out the way we intended it to sound!”

Krewella – dead af

Krewella has released a creepy new single “dead af,” which is thematically perfect for any Halloween celebration.

The aptly-titled track has hard hitting drops infused with hip hop elements, but the sound is remains distinctly trap — in contrast to the group’s usual dubstep style. As always, sisters Johan and Yasmine Yousaf’s vocals give the track a punk edge that hardcore Krewella fans know and love.

The sisters have been busy on their New World tour, which kicked off after the release of their EP, New World Pt. 1

Thanks to Stem, artists no longer have to chase after royalty payments

This post was originally published on this site

The landscape of content creation is ever-evolving. New platforms with a shared goal of content distribution continue to be developed and released — digital edifices of their own kind that market content from musicians and other innovators alike to audiences broad and diverse. Spotify, Apple Music, and SoundCloud, for instance, have revolutionized the accessibility of digital media, and there is perhaps no better time to be a creator than the present.

In spite of the developments made in the neighborhood of content creation, payment allocation had remained a historical issue. The aforementioned platforms often fail to direct payments to their rightful owners between 20-50% of the time, an issue rooted in their uncertainty as to whom to pay. Payment distribution proved an insufferable headache for content creators — until Stem moved in, that is.

Stem, founded in 2015 by Milana Rabkin, Tim Luckow, and Jovin Cronin-Wilesmith, seeks to simplify the payment process for musicians and content creators by ensuring that themselves and their collaborators get paid their fair share in a streamlined, timely manner. The financial platform unifies and manages agreements, distribution, payments, and data, allowing creators to immerse themselves in their work — where their minds should be. Creators are no longer obligated to chase payments or verify their amounts with Stem, which does the work for them.

Boasting the industry’s first Consensus-Based Payments model, the service establishes transparent and consensual royalty splits prior to payout, promoting financial fairness among creators and their collaborators. Stem holds payment until everyone logs in and accepts their split, whereas numerous other creators are engaged in one project.

But its focus is not limited to payment apportionment. The entity provides valuable insight to creators regarding the performance of their content, highlighting the platforms where such content performs best, the site of the creator’s most invested audience, and the most opportune times to release new content. In an increasingly competitive industry, Stem is a cutting-edge resource that propels creators toward their fullest financial potential.

“There is money in streaming, and with Stem, we’re aiming to eliminate the notion of the starving artist by empowering the creative class with the necessary tools and data to succeed in an increasingly competitive industry,” said Stem’s CEO, Milana Rabkin. Stem’s comparatively “well fed” artist clients include Krewella, Win and Woo, and Justin Jay, among other high profile producers and rising professionals.

Rabkin articulates the organizing principle behind her brainchild, asking, “In a world where Venmo exists, why isn’t there a Venmo for Apple and Spotify?” The question materialized in Rabkin’s mind during her time as a digital agent at United Talent Agency in 2015, a time in which YouTube in particular was elevating aspiring creators to a global view. She became attuned to the prevalent issue of payment distribution, as she sought opportunities for the agency’s signed talent to expand its digital reach. Cognizant that an automated, electronic platform did not exist to remediate the issue, Rabkin was determined to engineer a service that could solve the problem while simultaneously working across various content sharing platforms. She would find herself in the thick of Stem’s development a few months later, flanked by co-founders Luckow and Cronin-Wilesmith. It was born in full-fledged functionality shortly after that — primed to distribute to a multitude of content mediums.

A financial platform acutely aware of content creators’ needs, economic or otherwise, Stem emerges as a vanguard in the industry that is shaping the future of payment distribution.
