These are 10 hype-building songs to listen to ahead for Moonrise Festival 2018Moonrise

Moonrise Festival 2018 is shaping out to be one of Baltimore’s most exciting events of the year. The two-day festival — held at the Pimlico Race Course – is preparing for its 5th installment, which will feature a wide and diverse range of artists, catering toward fans of almost any dance music sub-genre. Performers include Kaskade, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, JOYRYDE, Ookay, GRiZ, Illenium, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ekali, MK, and more.

In honor of the upcoming festivities, we’ve compiled a 10-track playlist that includes tunes from some of the weekend’s most anticipated acts — perfect for any pre-game or long road-trips to Baltimore.

1. Silk City (Diplo & Mark Ronson) – “Only Can Get Better”

The latest single from Diplo & Mark Ronson’s newest side project Silk City. This is definitely a collaboration attendees will hear during Diplo’s headline set at the Stellar Stage Saturday night. Ronson has since teased their second upcoming release, so maybe he’ll give fans a little taste at the festival?

2. DJ Snake & Mercer – “Let’s Get Ill”

One of DJ Snake’s hottest 2018 collaborations saw linking up with Mercer for a rapid, future house heater. Check out Snake headlining the Stellar Stage Saturday night alongside Kaskade, Diplo, Zeds Dead, and more.

3. Marshmello – “Rooftops”

Marshmello recently released his Joytime II album, which has been very well-received by the Mello Gang. “Rooftops” a groovy one from the album where the DJ/producer throws on his own 90’s punk rock-sounding vocals. He’ll take the Stellar Stage Sunday night and will likely close out the weekend.

4. SNRBN – “If I Can’t Have You” feat. Harloe

The LA-based DJ/producer, who will also be taking over the Stellar Stage on Sunday afternoon, where he will more than likely take his audience out of the racetrack an instead place them on a mental beach. His latest single “I Can’t Have You” accomplishes this feat in mere minutes.

5. Two Friends – “While We’re Dreaming” feat. Kevin Writer

We enjoy this 2017 throwback from the duo, who will be treating their guests to a heavy dose of their cheery brand of dance music.

6. Galantis – “Mama Look At Me Now”

“Mama Look At Me Now” is one of two tracks from Galantis’ latest EP release, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the mischevious Swedes’ infectiously raucous Sunday set.

7. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, Tory Lanez – “Miss You” (Akira Akira & Hikeii Remix)

This is one of the most poppin’ remixes of his hit collaboration “Miss You” with Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. Festival goers can expect to hear either the original or an assortment of remixes, yet knowing Cashmere Cat, he often has a strictly Jersey club section of the set, to which this fits perfectly. Check out his set at the Lunar Stage on Sunday.

8. Rezz & 1788-L – H E X

Rezz is blowing up the scene with dark synths and heavy beats that are nothing short of an innovative sound. Check out her latest release, which she’ll most likely use to destroy the Solar Tent atmosphere on Saturday.

9. Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, Anti-Up – “Pizza”

Anyone want pizza? No? How about after a few hours of constant movement and house beats at the Celestial Stage? Chris Lake will be headlining the house-geared stage Saturday night and will probably trap listeners into his set right as they’re deciding to leave for some pizza.

10. Eric Prydz – “Liberate” (Lane 8 Remix)

This remix for Eric Prydz’ “Liberate” is one of Lane 8’s hidden gems released back in 2014. He’s pushed out a lot of new music since then, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop showing this perfect blend of deep and melodic house some love. Check him out headlining the Celestial Stage Sunday night.

Years & Years introduce new cryptocurrency, YearCoin

This post was originally published on this site

Cryptocurrency creation continues to grow more prevalent among producers active in the electronic sphere, as evidenced in Years & Years’ development of their very own currency. The British band’s gravitation towards digital currency mimics that of 3LAU, Don Diablo, and Gramatik, artists who’ve exhibited interest in crypto-currency. 3LAU notably wrote his own beginner’s guide to cryptocurrency, while Don Diablo and Gramatik devised their own currencies, HEXCOIN and GRMTK, respectively.

Years & Years are clearly in good crypto company as they introduce the ‘official cryptocurrency of Palo Santo,’ YearCoin. Participants in the group’s digital currency will have the ability to ‘mine’ YearCoins by performing tasks relative to Years & Years’ catalogue. Streaming the artists’ single, ‘Sanctify’ on Spotify, pre-ordering their forthcoming sophomore album, ‘Palo Santo,’ and sharing the cryptocurrency online, for instance, all count towards users’ YearCoin counts. Once a player garners 1,000 Year Coins, that user will earn a ‘Palo Santo’ ID card.

Those interested in learning more about YearCoin can visit the cryptocurrency’s official website, here.

Must listen: Zeds Dead deliver bass laden remix of 3LAU’s ‘Touch’

This post was originally published on this site

Zeds Dead put their own “Touch” on the track of the same title from 3LAU’s debut album, Ultraviolet. As with all productions bearing the Zeds Dead stamp, the take is one of high caliber.

The emotive original gains a quicker bpm count and bass laden additions in Zeds Dead’s remix. Joined by tasteful percussive accents and some gritty, dubstep-esque sounds leading up to each drop point of the revamp, the elements that Zeds Dead add to the Carly Paige assisted original amplify the affective power of the tune, while preserving its poignance.
