MTV Acquires SnowGlobe Music Festival and Announces Expansion PlansSnowglobe MF

Not only has MTV brought Teen Mom and Jersey Shore back to the airwaves in 2018, but the company is now announcing its acquisition of U.S. based New Year’s Eve event, SnowGlobe Music Festival. The annual three day event returns to South Lake Tahoe, California on December 29-31 for its eighth year. Terms of the deal had not yet been disclosed at time of writing.

“With SnowGlobe, MTV is taking the natural next step in its resurgence by expanding deeper into live events, as we continue to reach our fans and capitalize on our strong brand in new ways,” said Chris McCarthy, President of MTV, VH1, CMT, and Logo in an official release. “In a festival space where many events have become indistinguishable, SnowGlobe stands out with a unique mix of music, sports, and art that makes it a favorite among artists and its growing audience.”

MTV in collaboration with the SnowGlobe Team also plan to expand the festival to additional dates and locations worldwide. The festival will also be a platform for MTV to expand their New Year’s Eve coverage.

2018’s lineup includes Above & Beyond, Diplo, Eric Prydz, Rezz, and RL Grime headlining among more than 40 artists performing across three stages. SnowGlobe will also feature all-new art installations and the festival’s signature “Big Air” activation showcasing extreme winter sports demonstrations.Tickets for this year’s iteration of the event are still available for purchase here.

Watch REZZ unveil anticipated remix of Porter Robinson’s ‘Divinity’ [VIDEO]Rezz Echange La 2017 4

REZZ remixes always bring originals into her dark and trippy sonic realm in a way that piques max-level curiosity. So, when the mau5trap star announced via Twitter that she was tackling a song from Porter Robinson‘s beautiful and canonized Worlds LP, the hype was, unsurprisingly, instant. Just a day after revealing that the remix  in question would be “Divinity,” the crowd at REZZ’s Friday tour stop in Montreal were treated to an unveiling of the remix.

Preserving the original’s gorgeous bell plucks and airy vocals, REZZ reframes its key pieces with an injection of sinister sonic flair. The beauty of “Divinity” remains, but is now drenched in delicious REZZ darkness. The artist has promised to play the remix for the remainder of her “Certain Kind of Magic” tour, thought it’s unclear when and if fans can expect the rework’s official digital release.

To say 2018 has been REZZ‘s year could easily discredit her exemplary 2017, which included her chilling Mass Manipulation debut LP; nonetheless, the past 10 months have been stratospheric for mau5trap‘s breakout star.

Another album, another headlining tour, a visual mixtape, and a high-profile slot at seemingly every stateside festival helped make her an emblematic name in dance music, summoning throngs of swirly-eyed fans. However, according to REZZ herself, the current highlight of the year and biggest night of her life so far was her headlining performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Now, fans can relive the devilish magic of “Rezz Rocks” (or experience it for the first time), with her full HD upload of the set.

The sold out performance saw REZZ run through early classics, heaters from her two albums and fan favorite remixes, accompanied by fleets of lasers, a towering video screen, and her hallmark, tripped-out visuals. Colorado’s characteristically icy atmosphere couldn’t dampen the night, which was truly an extraterrestrial testament to her unequivocally loyal following.

REZZ unleashes 13 new tracks with Halloween-inspired ‘A Nightmare on REZZ Street’ mix

Whenever REZZ changes her avatar on Twitter, her fans know she’s plotting something new. Last week, she launched a Halloween-themed website that featured ghoulish, REZZ-centric illustrations, with an active countdown to something called “A Nightmare on REZZ Street.” Now that the clock’s reached all zeros, space mom has blessed fans with 13 unreleased IDs, along with visual accompaniment just in time for the spooky holidays.

The mix showcases her signature gritty sound work and haunting chord patterns with audio snippets from classic horror films in-between. There’s even an ID collaboration with 13, a frequent collaborator of hers on tracks such as “DRUGS!” and “The Crazy Ones.” The entire projects brings out a darker side to REZZ, celebrating the aura that’s made her somewhat of a cult leader.

The start of the 30-minute video follows REZZ’s journey through an animated forest of flames, before the iconic scene from “Poltergeist.” The visuals display shots of haunted houses and other various horror imagery.

Arguably her busiest year so far, 2018 marked the release of REZZ’s highly anticipated second album, Certain Kind of Magic.

REZZ incites Halloween-fashioned intrigue, launches eerie websiteNightmare On Rezz Street 1

Midway through Rezz-tober, the matriarch of all that is creepy-crawly has bestowed a mystery upon her unflinchingly loyal listeners in the form of a cryptic, Halloween-themed website.

Dubbed Nightmare On Rezz Street, the website features a number of ghoulish, Rezz-centric illustrations, along with an active countdown as its focal point, currently clocking in at just over five days before expiration (October 22). Given Rezz’s penchant for diversifying her releases–like her album-adjacent Mass Manipulation comic book–there will likely be a visual element to whatever frightful fun she has in store this season.

The “Hex” producer took to Twitter this past August (because it’s never too early to gear up for a good spook) to announce that the specially tailored project will be free and easily accessible for all. While she by no means elaborated on the nature of the impending release, she confirmed there is reason for fans to expect much more than a mere single-track undertaking. She also announced today that the identity of the project will be unveiled by tomorrow.

Rezz has been relentlessly satiating her band of self-proclaimed “cult” followers, releasing at least an album and/or EP a year since 2016, via her highly decorated mau5trap label housing. Her latest, Certain Kind of Magicfeatured a wealth of new faces, including 1788-L, Deathpact, and Kotek, all of whom have been encircling the blogosphere since the album’s auspicious release.

DA Presents: ’30 Days of Fright’ featuring REZZ, Gesaffelstein, Noisia, Drezo, and more [Playlist]

DA Presents: ’30 Days of Fright’ featuring REZZ, Gesaffelstein, Noisia, Drezo, and more [Playlist]SPOOKS PLAYLIST 1

Grab a mask, slam back some candy corn, and get primed to get spooky: it’s October and officially witching season. Electronic music fanatics might be creatures of the night all year round, but there’s something so undeniably righteous about the Halloween season that makes the rapturous roar of dance music even more spellbinding. Whether in the form of diabolic dubstep or demonically deviant techno, the advent of electronic music has given the world some of its most truly terrifying tunes. In that vein, the Dancing Astronaut terror squad is proud to present 30 Days of Fright, our most dastardly dance music favorites for the spookiest month of the year.

By Asher Norris and Bella Bagshaw 


Surrender your consciousness and step inside REZZ‘s world of swirling asphyxia with “Relax.”

Feel your blood begin to bubble and your pulse hectically hasten as BlackGummy and Brooks’s “Neverdeader” breathes a bit of electronic hellfire.

Stream if you dare, as this flame-throwing dubstep track from Kill The Noise, “Black Magic,” will leave your eardrums scorched, but entirely satiated.

Zeds Dead offers up the score for entertainment of the entirely un-dead variety with their timelessly terrifying, “Demons.”

Careful – Megan James’s delectably delicate voice may seem perfectly benevolent, but make no mistake: lofty pipes like hers are witchy by nature.

ZHU plays maestro for all things that boogie and bump in the night with “Nightcrawler.”

Taste the psychedelic strangeness of An-Ten-Nae and Alice D.’s “Raindrops On Roses,” and fall into their preternatural purgatory.

Ever wanted to dance with the devil himself? Habstrakt‘s harrowing house track, “She Goes,” is an opportunity to do just that.

Zomboy invites you to venture through his dubstep-riddled zombie apocalypse with “Ressurected.”

Crowned prince of menacing sound design, Drezo sprinkles a ghastly vocal cut and some unearthly growls in one of his most downright evil releases, “Dead.”

Ivy Lab puts a wickedly delicious spin on an already-crazed Noisia classic, “Tentacles.”

Bask in the eerie ecstasy of Eekkoo and Forrest’s pulsating house production, “Preach.”

NERO solidifies their title as masters of destruction and drum ‘n’ bass with “Doomsday.”

Slithering and psychotic, Noisia’s “Lilith’s Club” will summon spooky sentiments from listeners across the board.

Catch a case of the techno scaries with Gesaffelstein‘s devilishly danceable “Viol.”

Magic Sword wields triumphant electrowave, “In The Face Of Evil,” to fend off even the most nefarious of forces in the days leading up to this All Hallow’s Eve.

Phantogram‘s off-kilter ambiance from “Funeral Pyre,” is the ideal supernatural soundscape, topped with seductive static and levitation-inducing guitar chords.

An undoubtedly foreseen, but fundamental addition to the list, deadmau5‘s “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” keeps the freaky, phantasmic fun flying all season long.


Float through the ectoplasm of The Upside Down with this exquisitely melodic synthwave track direct from the second Stranger Things soundtrack.

We’re not really sure what Moody Good is investigating in the malignantly-sampled “This Is The Investigation,” but we’re pretty sure it’s not natural.

Step inside Pryda‘s low-lit techno tunnel and experience the roaring mania of “Rebel XX.”

Those with a predilection for the creepy crawly end of the electronic continuum need only submit themselves to Knife Party‘s iconic “Centipede.”

Street Fever’s winding techno musings inside “Dispose” may be simplistic, but they’ll leave listeners reeling with haunted rejoice.

Feed Me‘s two-headed trap/dubstep hybrid “Pink Lady” will have you seeing phantom strobes well into the afterlife.

It’s virtually impossible to overload on REZZ tracks during any month, but it’s especially tricky this time of year. Her immortal state of “Delusion” thrusts listeners below ground, where the most formidable forces can frolic freely.

Virtual Riot unleashes a bloodcurdling, cinematic ruckus with zombie-apocalypse-themed, “Haunted.”

Names are not at all deceiving as Shadient takes Wavedash and Quest‘s unnervingly vocalized “Devil Music” for ransom.

Coast the un-departed synth-pop streets of Dance With The Dead’s chillingly regal “Nightdrive.”

Spirits loom overhead, as Stephan Bodzin’s “Singularity” permeates shuddersome sounds of uncertainty.

The evil computers of the underworld unite on Knife Party’s riot-conjuring, “Internet Friends.”


There’s too many spooky dance cuts to round up all at once, alas, we’ve got you going with a pretty good start. Keep the spooks in rotation all month long, and don’t forget to mix in “Monster Mash” a few times to get into the spirit of things this season. Stream the full 30 Days of Fright collection below.
