Major Lazer and Anitta crank the heat in new track, ‘Make It Hot’Major Lazer Im Park 2016 13 Von 15

With Diplo’s signature Mad Decent Block Party just a month away, fresh material from the EDM goliath’s very own dancehall collective, Major Lazer, serves as a warm welcome to the impending festival season.

In what started as a project to repackage reggae and dancehall to the dance music masses, the Diplo-led trio—which also sports the talents of Walshy Fire and Ape Drums—has blossomed into an auditory melting pot of cultures, fusing musical and visual inspirations from around the globe. Major Lazer’s new single, “Make It Hot,” does just this, finding common ground among Eastern and Latin sound palettes all within a trudging moombahton beat.

Rio de Janeiro’s very own Anitta supplies vocals, which not only puts a much-needed sheen on the amalgamation of sounds present, but slathers the summer-ready beat with Major Lazer’s patented brand of grinding EDM swag.

Hosted at the Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts on July 20 and 21, this year’s Mad Decent Block Party is headlined by Major Lazer, Billie Eilish, G-Eazy and Miguel. Tickets to the event can be found here.

Billy-Ray-Cyrus-Lil-Nas-XThere’s an outdoor pool up the street from my house, and the swim teachers there are pleasantly leathery middle-aged guys who like to play Eagles and Bob Seger songs on weekend afternoons. This weekend, though, “The Weight” faded out, and some familiar spindly guitar notes came in. The boy sitting near me — blonde, cornfed, … More »

Diplo, the DJ-turned-pizza-authority recently joined Barstool’s Dave Portnoy as the first electronic artist in over 600 episodes of Portnoy’s One Bite pizza reviews. In the episode, Diplo drops his review of an artisan pie from Sotto 13 in New York, while Portnoy does the same, between an anecdote involving Diplo, the cameraman and, unsurprisingly, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit after party.

The ‘za reviews are topped with a taste of what’s to come at the Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival. Splayed across July 20-21 at the New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium, this year’s outdoor party needs not an ounce of bolstering, with headliners like Billie Eilish, Miguel, and Major Lazer on the roster.

TLDR: Diplo’s final thoughts on the pizza: Mad Decent.

Tickets to the Mad Decent Block Party are available here.

Midsplit Delivers Summertime Sadness with ‘Lovely’

This post was originally published on this site

Montreál-based Midsplit takes a new approach to ‘Lovely’, with cold-hearted vocal manipulation and deep, somber 808s through single. While Midsplit’s usual releases tend to be light-hearted and full to the brim with positivity-evoking sounds, ‘Lovely’ with NO-ONE, Jordan Kasedy, and A-SHO is reminiscent of Billie Eilish’s dark melodic tones with a robot-glitched chorus. The introduction
