Lizzo“HAVE U EVER SEEN A BITCH PLAY FLUTE THEN HIT THE SHOOT?” It was a reasonable question. It was also a relevant question because it accompanied footage of the woman who posed it doing just that: first busting out an accomplished flute solo and then breaking into 2018’s biggest viral dance craze with her backup … More »

Billie Eilish’s UK Label Apparently Commissioned An ASMR Tribute To Her Album

Pitchfork has a new story about Billie Eilish, which focuses on the 17-year-old goth-pop rising star’s fans in the ASMR community. ASMR—that’s short for autonomous sensory meridian response, if you don’t know—refers to the pleasantly tingly feeling some people get when they’re exposed to certain soft, scratchy, tactile sounds like whispering and crinkling … More »

Stream both weekends of Coachella for the first time ever [Schedule]Coachella

Coachella is ensuring those unable to attend this year’s installment of its painfully cool congregation of music and art can still soak up the excitement from home. The perennially pored-over affair has confirmed over 50 artists to be featured on the festival’s live stream schedule throughout its two-weekend duration (April 12 – 14/19 – 21), for the first time ever.

The official stream, which will be live through the Coachella YouTube channel, divvies up dance music slots among the likes of Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, Bob Moses, Bassnectar, Gorgon City, and more. Feverishly anticipated performances from Ariana Grande, Weezer, Billie Eilish will also be available at their respective set times.

Since the festival’s inclusion of a second weekend in 2012, one-weekend streaming (typically the first) has been the standard. But this year, viewers can trace both first and second legs, with the latter, dubbed Coachella Curated, equipped with supplemental content in the form of “full Yuma Tent sets, performances and more.”

All times are listed as PST, and the number next to the performer denotes the streaming channel they’ll be featured on. See the full Coachella livestream schedule below.

Diplo presents The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party, led by Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Major Lazer, Miguel

What Diplo wants, Diplo gets, specifically the first-ever Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival. If the length of the name tells us anything, it’s that the seminal Mad Decent festival is sure to be one hell of a doozy, as the newly minted event’s lineup confirms. Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Major Lazer, and Miguel head the festival, which will manifest as a fine balance of highly sought electronic acts and equally illustrious hip-hop artists alike.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, Pusha T, and J.I.D. round out the festival’s hip-hop inclusions, while Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, REZZ, Ekali, Troyboi, Baauer, and Whethan comprise some of Diplo’s dance picks. The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival also casts glances at talent from genres beyond the electronic and hip-hop spheres, to draw the stylistically malleable Quinn XCII, R&B’s Pink Sweat$ and Jesse Reyez, and Finneas out.

Needless to say, the inaugural Mad Decent Block Party branded affair is a must attend for many reasons, primary of which—at least, for dance music fans—is Major Lazer’s occupancy of a headlining slot. Diplo previously intimated that Major Lazer will likely dissolve after delivering their fourth—and probably final—album together, in a January interview with Complex. As such, The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival might well be one of Major Lazer’s last large-scale performances.

The unveiling of The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival’s lineup comes just after Mad Decent Block Party Festival tweeted out a video with a particularly suggestive caption on April 5: “IT’S HAPPENING.” While the far from subtle warning altered past attendees of Diplo’s multi-city Mad Decent Block Party party series to be ready for a followup announcement regarding the fate of a MDBP festival, Diplo’s presentation of a full-fledged lineup has presumably taken many by surprise, given how quickly it succeeded the preliminary Twitter hint that a MDBP festival was in the works.

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party will descend upon Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts for two days of fun, come July 20-21. Tickets to the festival will go on sale at 10 a.m. EST April 12.

Billie Eilish has liberated her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? With an air of authenticity, listeners are gifted a peek into the mind of the talented singer and songwriter, who uses her sultry voice to express a contrast of apathy and pain throughout the project. Her center-stage vocals are surrounded by the haunting and heavy production from her brother, Finneas O’Connell, that showcase a beauty in minimalistic pop with a lo-fi edge. The harmonies between Eilish’s voice, sometimes artfully stacked, and tasteful melodies are another strong point in the producer’s repertoire.

The maturity in her music is certainly impressive, at the young age of 17. She released four singles before unleashing the rest of the 14-track LP: “you should see me in a crown,” “wish you were gay,” “when the party’s over,” and “bury a friend.” This includes an intro where Eilish takes out her Invisalign, a proper introduction to the personality that follows.

Diplo plans to reinvent Mad Decent Block Party into mega festival, Mad City

Diplo plans to reinvent Mad Decent Block Party into mega festival, Mad CityDiplo Ball Mdbp

Mad Decent Block Party may be making a return and Diplo wants the party to be bigger than ever. The California producer has reportedly been building an ambitious proposal aimed at throwing what’s being called a “Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival” with SGE Entertainment—the company that produced festivals like Lost Lands and Moonrise. Luckily, the mouthful is being shortened simply to “Mad City.” Diplo’s infamous block parties grew from his a small Philly outdoor affair and skyrocketed in popularity to a circuit of block parties and eventually an ill-fated cruise. Despite 2018 only seeing one Mad Decent Block Party, it seems the event brand could be gearing up for its biggest iteration yet in 2019.

If approved, the “Mad City” festival will take place at the Brockton Fairgrounds in Massachusetts on July 20-21 with a proposed capacity of 37,000 people—the largest festival the city would host. Major Lazer and Billie Eilish will reportedly headline with Diplo acting as a main curator. Performances are expected to last from noon until 11pm on both days.

Diplo’s lofty sights have already seen pushback; the team’s initial application has been rejected by the Brockton License Commission on the basis of being too big to handle in regards to safety. Initially, Diplo planned on announcing a complete artist roster on March 25, but the opposition from city officials against the festival will most likely set their team back a bit.
