The Mac Miller: Celebration of Life benefit concert hit ears and feels on October 31, as the rapper’s loved ones and fans converged on the Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre for a live-streamed tribute performance. The event benefited the recently created Mac Miller Circles fund, supporting art programs for underserved youth.
The performing lineup included Miller collaborators and friends SZA, Vince Staples, Thundercat, Anderson .Paak, Travis Scott, and many more – with highlights including a high-energy set from Chance The Rapper and a bluesy cover from John Mayer of Miller’s “Small Worlds.” Between artist sets, personal footage of the artist played on screens. The night ended hair-raisingly with an audio clip of the rapper wishing the audience goodnight, as a single spotlight shone down on a mic.
Nina Kraviz is no novice when it comes to sonic world-building. A good DJ set should transport dance floor disciples to a halcyon, far away place; and Kraviz does precisely that.
With a stunning hour-and-45-minute set inside the Eiffel Tower, of all places, the techno goddess unravels her masterfully woven web of tech-sanity all around her audience. The hypnotic performance is the latest Cercle live stream event, pairing icons of techno and house music with eye-watering, epic locations.
Kraviz’s all-vinyl set weaves in and out of minimal oddities, as the crowd dances in the shadow of the French landmark with a hazy Parisian skyline behind them. As with previous installments of the event series, the match between artist and place feels meant to be. It’s clear the gig is a special one for Kraviz, who felt that her style and the evening’s location were an inexorable match.
“Techno as an avant-garde form of music fits perfectly here,” Kraviz explained in a post-set interview. “I’m very honored to play here. I hope the guy who built it can feel us, and feels what’s going on.”

At long last, Chromeo have shared their fifth studio album, Head Over Heels. An ode to all things disco, the album explores the sub-genres of funk — roping in synth pop, sultry R&B, and nu-disco sensibilities into a retro-inspired dance record built for the 21st century dance fan. And while Chromeo have always maintained a creative affinity for vintage stylings, Dave1 and P-Thugg are celebrating their newest release in the most contemporary way. Can’t make it out to New York’s iconic Terminal 5 for the album’s live debut? No problem — cut a rug from the comfort of your own living room.
In conjunction with Oculus Venues, the Funklordz will live stream their performance in VR for fans across the world to enjoy. The show will air tonight (June 15) at 9:30pm EST/6:50pm PST, broadcasting Chromeo’s newest material from Terminal 5, replete with all the visuals, lights, and sounds of a full concert experience. Head Over Heels, the duo’s first full-length project since 2014’s White Women, features contributions from DRAM, The-Dream, French Montana, and more is available now via Big Beat Records.
There’s been a steady stream of exciting news pouring out of northern California from Google’s annual I/O conference. The Google Assistant is getting a John Legend upgrade, devices are now being integrated with continued conversational abilities, but perhaps the most exciting part will be a rare live-streamed performance by Justice to close out this year’s event. Justice are expected to take the state at 8:30pm PST and their headlining slot is slated for a full 90-minute set.
The French electro dons are fresh off the release of their mind-bending new animated feature for “Stop,” from 2016’s Woman LP, which is expected to also receive a special live debut during the Ed Banger veterans’ performance. What’s more, the conference closer also includes a supporting set by Phantogram before Justice takes the stage. Ahead of a number of high-profile arena and festival appearances the summer spanning from the UK to Russia, Justice are bringing their awe-striking live show to Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheater for fans across the world to stream and enjoy.
Justice have shared the new music video for “Stop” from the duo’s lauded 2016 LP Woman. The new feature, animated by another French creative pairing, illustrators Mrzyk & Moricea, accents the dreamy, slow-burn disco cut with a synesthetic dose of neon that perfectly completes the song’s retro aesthetic. Scaling back the album’s psychedelic dance ballad to a leaner radio edit, the “Stop” video winds and weaves through a spacial landscape of shifting imagery, projecting some of Justice’s most iconic visual staples along with plenty of stimulating graphic symbolism.
The video comes in conjunction with more good news for Justice fans. The French electro visionaries are currently amid a packed international touring circuit in support of their most recent studio album, and they’ve just added a rare live stream event to their itinerary. Adding to their list of high-profile performances, Xavier and Gaspard have been announced as the musical headliners for this year’s Google I/O conference. The set will be live streamed on YouTube on May 9 from Shoreline Amphitheater, and will include opening support from Phantogram, as well as a live debut of the new “Stop” music video.
The music & arts festival’s U.S. streaming partnership with T-Mobile has brought live performances from an array of artists, including Beyoncé, Kygo, and Post Malone, from the stages at the Empire Polo Club to the homes of the thousands who have tuned into the live broadcast to enact ‘Couchella.’
