Madeaux’s 12-track LP draws on various elements of musical inspiration. Between thumping electronic bass and classical instrumentals, Madeaux’s new tunes can be expected to take listeners on an emotional rollercoaster. Burn also aims to be a means of social release for the artist. He’s gone on to describe the album as “the scorching away of shallow societal aspirations now in service of an uncompromising musical vision.”
The 12-track LP is also a journey into Madeaux’s varied inspirations. For now, he’s shared a preview with “Run With It,” a fiery number in its own right.
“This record was written to give you faith when the world aims to give you a box. You are more than they could ever imagine. Run with it,” he said of the new track on SoundCloud.
“Take The Ride” tour, an event series created by Desert Hearts, has been a huge success in 2017. Instead of taking time off as the year winds down, the Desert Hearts crew is finishing the year with a bang, throwing a day-long festival in downtown L.A. branded as City Hearts Festival. The Nov. 12 event goes beyond tour shows to feature activities, performers, a healing village, and much more.
Day for Night has become known for it’s state-of-the-art lighting productions and art installations on par with Coachella and Burning Man, while retaining an underground/indie festival ethos. The Day for Night Summit, a consciousness raising speaker forum, will kick off the weekend festivities on Friday, with prominent activists sharing their thoughts on the relationship between art, technology, and activism, featuring the likes of LGBTQ advocate Chelsea Manning and the political activist musings of Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova.
Joining the well-rounded list of headlining talent, which also includes Thom Yorke, Solange, and St. Vincent, are electronic music heavy weights G Jones, REZZ, Kaytranada, Marcus Marr, and Cashmere Cat, with an eclectic list of indie-rock appearances by Deep Cuts, True American, and spoken word artist Saul Wiliams.
Tickets to Day for Night 2017 range from $215 to $750 with fees. This year, a portion of the festival’s proceeds will help the Greater Houston Community Foundation aid people in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Change is on the horizon for Jukely subscribers. The concert membership service that proudly offered subscribers access to an unlimited number of shows per month has repealed its previous structure in favor of new guidelines that will go into effect on October 1st.
Whereas Jukely’s prior organization allowed its members to pay a $25 monthly fee to attend an unrestricted series of shows supported by the service, Jukely’s revised stipulations will restrict the number of concerts that a Jukely member can attend monthly. The monthly show limit will be determined in accordance with the monthly membership rate paid by a given member: members paying the standard $25/month can claim 4 spots [shows] per month, those paying $35/month can claim 5, those paying $45 may claim 8, and those paying $65/month can claim 10 spots per month. Annual members are permitted to claim 5 spots per month, Annual+1 members may reserve 10 spots. Bonus shows, however, will not count towards a Jukely user’s monthly spot allocation.
Jukely emphasizes that the changes to the service’s structure will engender greater “variety” and “selection” of Jukely supported concerts, while simultaneously freeing up spaces to the shows. Subscribers that continue to use Jukely signal their agreement to the platform’s updated terms through their extended use.
Needless to say, current Jukely subscribers are far from happy with the service’s new limitations:
How do you change ToS from *UNLIMITED* shows per month to a measly four shows per month?! Totally arbitrary, unfair, uncool. VILE! @jukelyhttps://t.co/lXsNdXCqIh
Undoubtedly leading the current revival of French house tastemaking comes two producers who are quite literally writing the trends in deep pulsating, bass forward house music. Today Tchami took to Twitter today to announce to fans the “No Redemption” North American tour alongside enigmatic house producer and fellow CONFESSION confidant, Malaa to cap off 2017.
The 11-city roll out will grace major Canadian markets Toronto and Montreal, while crossing the U.S. with the remainder of stops — with Las Vegas, Brooklyn, Miami and Chicago in the duo’s crosshairs. The “No Redemption” road stretch is pairing the dark, deep, and wildly unpredictable turns of Malaa with the symbolic religious sacraments of Tchami as he takes his constituents to church.
For five years now the Belgian born and Berlin-based producer Sébastien, better known as Kill Frenzy, has been slinging out undeniably infectious tunes by way of the Dirtybird label. Over the years as Kill Frenzy, the producer has created a seemingly infinite body of work radiating all that is crude, lewd, deep and dark— oftentimes insinuating insatiable booty clapping along the way.
While the artist’s last release was in March of this year, his tunes have continued to dominate on the dance floor all year long. Extensive playtime in sets by artists like Soul Clap and Skrillex have highlighted the producer’s ability to bridge the gap between genres, cliques, and crews around the world. Now the artist is taking it one step deeper with the announcement of his Deep Tour.
Making stops in major cities across the US and even hitting Australia later in the year, Kill Frenzy is going deeper than ever before and bringing some friends along for the ride. Dirtybird-collaborator Will Clarke will be joining him at the Dirtybird Campout, kicking the tour off in style. Followed by the beloved house duo Gorgon City at the second show in Boston and the legendary Green Velvet joining the artist in Brooklyn.

The last few months of 2017 are looking to be huge for legendary group The Prodigy.
The music pioneers signed a new recording deal with BMG Rights Management to release their seventh album, which they’ve announced will be out in early 2018. BMG, the fourth biggest publishing company in the world, currently manages frontman Liam Howlett’s song repertoire.
Though The Prodigy announced in 2015 that they would no longer be releasing full studio albums, the UK trio have backtracked and are hard at work on their seventh album since 1992. There’s also a new single coming before the end of the year, as they’ve announced in a Facebook post.
In February 2018, Ultra South Africa will return for a fifth year to Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Though it’s months away, the festival has already started the hype with the announcement of Hardwell and Armin Van Buuren as headliners. The two headlined the festival in 2015 and are bringing their musical mastery back to the iconic event.
The Cape Town event will take place on Friday, Feb. 8 at the Cape Town Stadium, and the Johannesburg event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Expo Centre.
The 69th Annual Emmy Awards honored the best in U.S. prime time television last night, honoring series that ran from June 1, 2016, through May 31, 2017. While it was expected Stranger Things was going to sweep its respective categories — the show was nominated for 18 awards — it, in turn, won five Creative Emmys.
Among those awards the series racked up the Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music award, marking the first Emmy Award for S U R V I V E members Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. Dixon and Stein composed the synth-led title theme and the rest of the score for the hit show and have since been brought on for season two.
Flying Lotus has scored a new animated short film preluding the forthcoming Blade Runner 2049 sequel. The new short film, Blade Runner Black Out 2022, was written and directed by Shinichiro Watanabe of Cowboy Bepop. The film is the third in a series of prequels taking place in the years between the original 1982 Blade Runner and the forthcoming sequel. FlyLo even went on to share his excitement via Twitter.
Just finished work on a new project. One of those dream come true type deals. . Life is crazy.
