Boombox Cartel is a big playmaker this 2019, and is coming off some pretty notable hits as the summer approaches. In April, the LA native hopped on a Breakfast n Vegas collaboration that featured breakout Latin star Bad Bunny & Tory Lanez. Shortly after, he headlined a sold out show at Brooklyn’s newest premier venue Avant Gardner.

Now, Cartel continues this momentum by sticking with today’s hip-hop connoisseurs, one of those being MadeinTYO who’s been holding it down as one of Atlanta’s finest since 2015’s “Uber Everywhere.” Staying on the subject of cars, “NEW WIP” features bars about a “rarri” over heavy bass, signature trap drums, and some blazing horns. This is a wild one to cue up behind the decks, so prepare for shaky floors at the his next headlining show.

Boombox Cartel is currently on “The Cell” tour, hitting prime US nightclubs including Marquee NY, Royale in Boston, and more before a Lollapalooza showing on August 1. Head here for tickets and a full list of dates.

YouTube forges two-year live stream partnership with LollapaloozaLollapalooza Red Bull Tv

YouTube‘s livestream of Coachella 2019’s consecutive two weekends generated considerable traffic for the video streaming giant. The platform’s weekend one livestream racked up more than 82 million live views, to become the most-viewed Coachella weekend livestream to date. The view counts signify a surge of more than 90 percent when compared to those of 2018.

As the Coachella livestream statistics indicate, live broadcasts of major music festivals are of considerable appeal to contemporary video streamers. YouTube is currently seeking to “[double] down on music festivals,” and plans to prioritize its live coverage of the large scale events, starting with Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival. YouTube has newly entered into a two-year livestream partnership with Lollapalooza. Viewers of Youtube’s Lollapalooza 2019 broadcast will be able to not only catch sets from their favorite artists, but will also have the opportunity to access “custom content that gives them unique access to the festival’s artists.” Lollapalooza’s 2019 iteration will unfold from Aug. 1-4.

Good Morning Mix: Stream ZHU’s climactic Lollapalooza Argentina set

Good Morning Mix: Stream ZHU’s climactic Lollapalooza Argentina setZhu

ZHU recently stopped by Lollapalooza Argentina to spin his signature brand of dark sonic magic. A tantalizing blend of catalog staples and newer releases alike, ZHU’s set opens with the producer’s breathy live rendition of ZHU classic, “In The Morning.” ZHU glides from one track to the next, with an atmospheric fluidity aided offset by the texture of the live instrumentation that guides the performance. Rugged guitar riffs provide contrast to the smooth tone of a saxophone, while rhythmic synth work lends a punchy sultriness to the showing.

ZHU’s set indulges the electronic envelope pusher’s shadowy mystique in its early inclusion cuts from his Ringo’s Desert saga, like “Desert Woman,” and “Save Me.” The idiosyncratic, crepuscular groove characteristic of ZHU’s sound grows increasingly potent as the set progresses, with Just A Gent‘s remix of ZHU’s own “Superfriends,” and a deep flip of “Working For It.” ZHU effortlessly interweaves sonic sleekness with more gritty trappings, the tail-end of the set a heavy hitting finale to the refined affair.

Madeon set to debut new live show at LollapaloozaMadeon Live

Madeon, French producer lesser known as Hugo Leclercq, has been surprising fans left and right over the past few weeks, after it was announced that he would be performing at Porter Robinson‘s Second Sky Festival and Chicago’s Lollapalooza. Though the “Shelter” artist will be playing a DJ set at Second Sky, he has now shared the news that his Lollapalooza show will consist of an entirely new live set-up.

While there is no word on an impending project from Madeon, his response to a fan’s tweet about an “album live show” may suggest there is new music on the way. Now four years out from his beloved debut studio album, Adventure, one can only hope that a new music announcement from Leclercq will be coming soon. Though, with Madeon’s live appearances starting to ramp up this summer, something tells us new music may be just around the corner.

Flume‘s surprise mixtape, Hi, This is Flumeis set to land any minute now, and as fans eagerly await the Aussie beat guru’s highly anticipated return, the good news just keeps pouring in. The Skin producer was just announced as a headliner at Lollapalooza this summer, signaling a huge swell in momentum for the beloved electronic experimenter. To hype the Chicago iteration of the festival this summer, Lollapalooza has dropped off a short teaser announcing ticket sales, featuring a brand new, yet-to-be identified cut from Flume.

The “Summer is Coming” trailer, which might even succeed in plugging Flume’s return more than the actual festival, features clips of the iconic summer gathering at Grant Park, soundtracked by the delightfully off-kilter clinks and clicks that only Harley Streten can do so well. Chopped vocals and rubbery percussive breaks come together with a charming, cinematic appeal in the new ID, and if the nameless track is any indicator of the impending mixtape Flume has promised, everyone is in for quite the treat.

Chicago’s Lollapalooza provided fans an early morning gift in the form of its 2019 lineup. Returning to its home of Grant Park from August 1-4, the four-day affair boasts yet another all-star roster with everything from hip-hop to EDM. Perhaps the biggest indication of electronic’s influence over the modern music sphere is the festival’s headliner list. The Chainsmokers and Flume are both listed as headliners, joining a list that includes heavy hitters like Ariana Grande, J Balvin, and The Strokes. Other dance music acts making the lengthy list are RÜFÜS DU SOL, RL Grime, Whethan, Alesso, Boombox Cartel, and Lane 8, to name a few. Similar to Coachella, it seems that the many shades of dance music are playing an increasingly larger role in the festival’s lineup year upon year.

DJ Hanzel and Tchami? Dillon Francis hints at new collaborations, talks ‘WUT WUT,’ TV show, and more [Interview]

Moombahton progenitor Dillon Francis has put a near-incomprehensible amount of work into his 2018 thus far — and there is much more on the horizon. His highly-anticipated sophomore effort, WUT WUT, has spawned six Latin-inspiredproductions thus far and is officially slated to hit the internet at the top of the fall season on September 28. This follows an already busy eight months of headlining global festivals, working alongside Panic At The Disco for a track off their latest album, and getting back into the remix ring with a spin of Cardi B’s hit single, “I Like It.”

One talent Francis has that shines as brightly as his musicianship is his ability to make others laugh. The artist is a natural comic, amassing a mass following on social media with meme-worthy content that includes DJ Hanzel’s creation, Gary the Piñata, and silly antics. Last summer, he starred alongside James Van Der Beek in the Diplo-based Viceland series What Would Diplo Do? 

These skills culminated in one of the more momentous announcement of Dillon’s career: he’d be taking his comedy to the next level by executive producing his very own series Like & Subscribe. Fans had been hoping this for years on end — especially after seeing his innate knack for acting on Vice. The show was announced in typical Francis fashion, by way of an “Influencer Wall” that baffled some and angered many.

Before one of the more entertaining and idolized personas in all of electronic dance music was honored with shutting down the Perry’s Stage at Lollapalooza, we got the chance to sit down with Dillon Francis as he dished on how his new album come to fruition, an update on the upcoming Like & Subscribe project and finally a potential return of the fan-favorite alter ego DJ Hanzel.

Your new album ‘Wut Wut’ is mostly Latin-influenced. Was that something you always aspired to do and was the process of creating that any different than your music in the past?

My manager and I actually came up with the idea for the album like three years ago and it was long before “Despacito” and “Mi Gente” had ever become big. The reason we did it and the reason the album is called Wut Wut is because it was me just going back to “Que Que“, which was a song I made together with Diplo and Maluca. I wanted to just have those vibes of what I used to make back during the West Side EP days and try to revitalize it and add in the new flair that I have now. Where I’m at in my career, I was able to go to some artists that I really looked up to and work with them so it’s been really fun. It’s probably been one of the most fun albums I’ve worked on. A lot of people have been like “it took so long, it was a labor of love” but the only thing that has taken long was for it to come out. The whole thing for me was just having the best time of my life and the whole album was about fun, and that’s it. It’s not this crazy, introspective project so you can enjoy it and get wild to it.

You worked on a track on Panic At The Disco’s new album. What was it like working with them?

Brendon Urie is one of my favorite people alive; hanging out with him was so much fun and he’s such a funny dude. Our music sensibilities are so much alike and I don’t know if that’s because I grew up listening to Panic and being an emo kid but then also listening to indie dance music. I think that’s where him and I meld together is the fact that I was so into indie dance music when I was coming up. There’s an old song on my album Money Sucks, Friends Rule “We Are Impossible” and that’s kind of trying to be that vibe but I think we really nailed it with “Hey Look Ma, I Made It“.

Everyone saw that hilarious influencer mural you put up in Los Angeles to promote your new series “Like & Subscribe” and you’ve always had a knack for comedy so was having your own series always a goal of yours?

Yeah so I executive produced that show and I know that it didn’t come out yet because Go90 got destroyed. Two days into the promotion for what we were doing, they hit us back and we’re like “hey the company is closing down, do you still want to air it for 30 days?” so they just gave it to us and right now we are shopping it. If that doesn’t happen though then I think I’m really going to try to blow it out and put it on my YouTube.

Going off of that, we wanted to take it back for a second to those incredible Snapchat story sketches that you used to do with your friends Phantoms. Do you guys have any plans to bring those back or potentially work on something else in the future?

I don’t really use Snapchat that much and on Instagram you can’t do those long format stories. I tried to use Instagram TV once and it did well but I’ve kind of grown apart from doing that especially after doing the Like & Subscribe show, I want to focus on doing those types of productions. Every now and then I like to do it for something like Gerald’s birthday and other big moments like that.

It’s definitely been a minute since we went ‘One Deeper’ with DJ Hanzel so are there any plans for another show in the coming months?

Yeah so the last show we did was at Exchange LA and that’s a really good question because I was literally just talking about it like 30 minutes ago. I’m hoping to try and do something again if not this year then next year. I know that there has been talks of a DJ Hanzel and Tchami song so we’ll see what happens with that.

You and DJ Snake obviously have one of the most enviable friendships that we’ve seen in all of dance music. That well-thought-out revenge prank that you pulled on him after he blasted your number across the Ultra Mainstage back in 2015 was extremely entertaining. Do you guys have anything in the works in terms of music that you can share?

We’re trying to work on something but I don’t think we’ve found the right song yet. We’re still sending back and forth songs and trying to figure out what we want it to be but it’s been a little tough because we don’t know if we want it to be a moombahton song or something closer to ‘Get Low‘. He’s finishing up his new album too so I was trying to get something done with him but we’ll see.

You have the honor of closing down the Perry’s Stage here at Lollapalooza this weekend so is there anything you can tell us about that set before it all goes down later?

I was sick for the past five days and I was just sitting in my house making edits of all my old music so a lot of them are blends. I brought back “IDGAFOS” and “Bruk Bruk“. My intro is really cool and I think for the first hour it’s all my music that’s all blended together. The set only has about two other people’s songs but I really tried to focus on making edits of my songs. I know a lot of people are like “man, you stopped playing ‘Anywhere‘” and that was just because sometimes I forget as well when I’m DJing. I’m just in a vibe and then I’m like “oh, I don’t want to go to that one” so I tried to make these cool edits so that I could finally have them to place around sets when I need to. I didn’t realize how much music I have but my favorite song that I’ve ever made has to be “It’s Not Butter” and that’s been in my set forever. I have a new remix I’m playing tonight that I did for Martin Solveig and it kind of has that vibe from my “Morning Sun” remix but it’s way more tropical so look out for that.

***We stayed on the lookout, and he did indeed drop said track.
