As usual, Coachella opens the new year with a bang. The festival’s full 2020 lineup has been revealed, and as promised, Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean top the bill, followed by a massive cast of today’s top acts…and a few surprises. Calvin Harris will return to Coachella, where he once commanded one of the largest crowds in the event’s history. The lineup also features Disclosure, Madeon, Louis The Child, Big Sean, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX, Run The Jewels, Lana Del Rey, and more.

This year’s lineup bears a particularly impressive electronic showing from across the spectrum—deadmau5 will perform as Testpilot, with TNGHT, DJ Koze, SLANDER, Peggy Gou, Lane 8, Fatboy Slim, GRiZ, TOKiMONSTA, and more. Notably, the lineup features the long-awaited return of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden’s beloved Duck Sauce project, and not the My Chemical Romance reunion many were expecting. Coachella’s two weekends will run April 10 – 12 and April 17 – 19. See the full lineup below.

Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, and Rage Against The Machine will headline Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival‘s 2020 iteration, reports US Weekly. The Indio, California affair’s programming will once again span two consecutive weekends, beginning on April 10, 2019, and concluding on April 19, 2020.

The 2020 installment will be a return to the Empire Polo Club for Scott, Ocean, and Rage Against the Machine alike. Scott previously performed in Indio Valley in 2017; Ocean, 2012. Rage Against the Machine notably headlined Coachella’s inaugural edition in 1999. The group disbanded shortly thereafter in 2000, but continued to play select live performances in the years that followed. Rage Against the Machine’s Coachella slot would mark the end of the band’s nine-year hiatus.

Although event organizers have yet to formally confirm Scott, Ocean, and Rage Against the Machine as the 2020 headliners, Rage Against the Machine touted their impending Coachella reunion in November. 2019 Coachella headliners included Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, and Tame Impala.

Exclusive: So Dope unleashes the low end on VIP Bootleg of Travis Scott’s ‘HIGHEST IN THE ROOM’

Exclusive: So Dope unleashes the low end on VIP Bootleg of Travis Scott’s ‘HIGHEST IN THE ROOM’So Dope Press Image

Sharp as ever, So Dope cuts Travis Scott‘s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” an electronic edge in a brand new VIP bootleg. Armed with the hard trap technics that have characterized his catalog to date, namely “Catch Me Now” and “come for me,” the New York native converts Scott’s original from an anticlimactic hip-hop outing to a rousing hybrid.

The lulling collection of chords at the onset of So Dope’s bootleg border on dreamy in description; they’re vaporously smooth, but they don’t set the precedent for the sound that will follow on So Dope’s revamp. As streamers familiar with So Dope’s sound know, a sonic plot twist is to come.

It accordingly unfolds at the one-minute mark; the break down is accelerant and shrill, satiating in the trap turn that it takes. Replete with pummeling bass and the distinct grit of aggressive trap, the drops that So Dope engineers on his VIP Bootleg are hammering additions to “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” that augment the firepower of the flip. So Dope’s style, evidently, remains blazing hot.

So Dope’s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM (VIP Bootleg)” will formally release on November 25. Listeners can stream the producer’s latest electronic endeavor one-day early, only on Dancing Astronaut.

Ed Sheeran releases star-studded album tracklist with Skrillex, Travis Scott, Cardi B, and more

Ed Sheeran releases star-studded album tracklist with Skrillex, Travis Scott, Cardi B, and moreEdsheeranglastonbury

To say Ed Sheeran has become one of the most successful artists in the streaming era in an understatement. He is the number one most streamed artist on Spotify with over 61 million listeners a month, with the number one most streamed song, “Shape Of You,”—the only song with over 2 billion plays. Sheeran has four songs with over a billion plays, and from the looks of the roster on his upcoming No. 6 LP, he’s rearing for more.

Featured collaborations on the newly revealed tracklist include Skrillex, Khalid, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Stormzy, Yebba, Travis Scott, Eminem, 50 Cent, Young Thug, JHUS, Ella Mai, Paulo Londra, H.E.R., Meek Mill, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Bruno Mars, and Chris Stapleton. This is also leaving out the two singles on the album that have already been released—”Cross Me” featuring Chance The Rapper & PnB Rock and number 2 Billboard chart-topper “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber. In an eclectic variety of collaborators, the British singer/songwriter has blanketed his album with a smorgasbord of artists in almost every pop genre.

The album, No. 6, is set for release July 12.

Whethan gets back to remixing with new flip of Travis Scott and Metro Boomin’s ‘Overdue’

Less than a month removed from his Jeremih-assisted house number “Let Me Take You,” Whethan is promptly advancing towards his fourth release since January. The 20-year-old producer has a proven track record for working his magic on high-profile releases throughout his young career with his genre-bending approach and he’s aiming to do it once more, stepping up to rework Travis Scott and Metro Boomin’s late 2018 collaboration, “Overdue.”

Withholding a sufficient number of elements from the two rappers’ original output, Whethan provides the track with a well-deserved, polished electronic glamour. As far as expectations from the burgeoning superstar go, Whethan generally keeps listeners on their toes as he continues to experiment with invigorating sounds. One of the highlights of the new remix is Whethan’s elegantly-produced snare over a glitch-coated Travis Scott chorus. With a complete schedule of festival appearances over the coming weeks, the interval between the remix and the producer’s next offering will most likely not be long as Whethan continues to build upon an already impressive 2019 rap sheet.

Young Thug, J.Cole, and Travis Scott team up for ‘The London’

Three of hip-hop’s established stars just released what could be one of the most exciting singles of 2019. “The London” by Young Thug with stalwart guests J. Cole and Travis Scott on features is an upbeat club-rap anthem that displays the versatility of its credited artists.

Beginning with a hook using Scott’s cruising auto-tune, the verses from Cole and Thug that follow (in that order) represent the ability of both artists to adapt their vocal work. Fans of each would note that Cole and Thug’s respective flows are often the inverse of each other, with Cole known for his smooth and heartfelt lyricism, while Thug is harsher and choppier. For this track, however, the two have found a middle ground that complements their different styles and enhances the track overall.

Cole revealed earlier this year that he is executive producing Thug’s upcoming album, GØŁDMØÜFDÖG, and it would not be surprising if this single is included on the LP.

HBO releases Game of Thrones inspired LP, ‘For The Throne’For The Throne Album E1554838853499 1

HBO and Columbia Records have released For The Throne (Music Inspired by the HBO Series Game of Thrones), just in time for fans to indulge right before the final season’s third episode airs on April 28. The album features from some of music’s biggest artists, including The Weeknd, SZA, Travis Scott, The Lumineers, A$AP Rocky, Lil Peep, Maren Morris, and more. The LP boasts 14 total tracks, each of which bears its own distinctive voice and stylistic influences. Track names like “Power is Power,” “Hollow Crown,” and “Too Many Gods” find their inspiration from characters and plot-lines that Game of Thrones viewers will recognize, and certainly appreciate.

Game of Thrones previously enlisted the help of the music world for various collaborations, which prompted cameos from Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Sigur Rós, and the infamous “Rains of Castamere,” as recorded by The National. The most recent original song, “Jenny of Oldstones,” was written by Florence and the Machine for the eighth and final season. The song shattered Shazam’s all-time record —previously held by Adele’s “Hello”— after it debuted during Episode Two’s ending credits.

For The Throne is available both digitally and in vinyl. The collection comes in 11 different vinyl configurations. Listeners will have the choice of nine different variants, with each representing a house crest. There is also a fire and ice stylized configuration, as well as a standard.
