Skrillex, Vindata, NSTASIA release new single ‘Favor’

This post was originally published on this site

Skrillex is coming off of a packed weekend where he provided the last performance at NYC’s venerable Webster Hall and then found himself playing at HARD festival a few hours later. That hasn’t stopped him from starting off the week strong with a brand new track “Favor.” The producer continues to diversify his sound with his newest release, a collaboration with Vindata and NSTASIA. An electric guitar weaves in and out a consistent drum backdrop at a much slower BPM than we are accustomed to with previous Skrillex releases. NSTASIA’s vocals carry the track, and it’s the perfect change of pace for those who love Skrillex’s signature sound but also love their electronic chords mixed with a little bit of rock.

BPM issues updated statement following Blue Parrot shooting

This post was originally published on this site

Early in the morning last Monday, January 16, the festivities at Blue Parrot nightclub’s Elrow closing party were violently disrupted by a shooting which killed five people. The bedlam marked a tragic end to The BPM Festival’s ten-year tenure at Playa del Carmen, wherein the event is hereafter banned.

For the first time since its initial statement on the day of the shooting, The BPM Festival has broken its silence. In the new statement, BPM briefly eulogizes the attack’s five victims:

“We are still reeling from the loss of the five lives, three of our festival guests — Daniel Pessina (Italy), Rafael Antonio Peñalosa Vega (México), and Alejandra Margarita Villanueva Ibarra (USA) – and two well-loved members of our BPM family, Kirk Wilson from Toronto, Canada and Geovanni Francisco Ruiz Murillo from Veracruz, Mexico. Kirk leaves behind a wife and two young children.* Geovanni was the father of two children. We are in touch with both families and are doing everything we can to ease this terrible loss.”

BPM has set up a GoFundMe account to memorialize Canadian victim Kirk Wilson, a bouncer who was killed while on-duty in the shooting, and is survived by a wife and two children. The statement further notes that only one of the surviving victims injured in the shooting is still undergoing hospital treatment.

Though the shooting has been extensively covered, much information regarding the night’s events remains uncertain. While the festival’s statement on the day of the attack noted that the act of aggression was carried out by “a lone shooter,” numerous eyewitness accounts assert otherwise. Cartels are widely thought to be involved with the shooting – Los Zetas Cartel, in particular. However, at press time, authorities have not officially confirmed the assailants to be cartel-affiliated.

In the new statement, BPM remains an agnostic stance regarding the course of events, refraining to comment publicly “so as not to interfere with, or impede, the ongoing police investigation.”

Another Shooting In Mexico Just A Day After BPM Shooting

This post was originally published on this site

Five suspected attackers have been taken into custody after another shooting took place in Cancun, Mexico. The attack occurred on Tuesday the 17th, just a day after the BPM shooting rattled the city. The attack was against the prosecutor’s office and claimed the lives of four people.

While it is still too early to say if the shootings were related, it is hard not to think so as this outburst of violence is something unseen for this Caribbean resort city. Carlos Joaquin, the governor of Quintana Roo state, said that the four victims claimed by the shooting were three of the attackers and one police officer. This second shooting has mandated Joaquin to send more security to the area to help maintain safety for civilians.

It is still under investigation as to whether these two shootings are linked and who is responsible for them. Many speculate that drug cartels are responsible considering the targets of both the BPM shooting and this shooting, as well as the appearance of a banner signed by a fragmented section of the old Zeta cartels.

For our fellow US citizens reading this in Cancun, the US Consulate in Merida issued a warning about the shootings stating “to follow local authorities’ warnings and directives and consult with their hotels before leaving the premises.”

New Eyewitness Reports Suggest Multiple Shooters Involved In BPM Attack

This post was originally published on this site

New eyewitness reports gathered by Billboard suggest multiple shooters were involved in the attack on the Blue Parrot nightclub on Monday in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, contrary to area police’s statements referred to by BPM Festival’s Facebook account.

A 28-year-old Australian attendee told Billboard he saw five Mexican men in leather jackets attempt to enter the Blue Parrot.

“They got denied because they didn’t want to be patted down,” he told Billboard. “Three of them left out of our vision and two of them shot security guards at the entrance, ran in and aimlessly opened fire. There were two guys there, not one like the news incorrectly reports.”

The man said he later saw one of the men walk through a police perimeter, this time without his leather jacket.

“One of the dudes I saw try to get in was just casually walking with everyone else with the gun in his hand,” he told Billboard. “We looked at each other and he sort of waved it at me, as in ‘it’s none of my business, keep walking,’ and I wondered why the police were not doing a single thing.”

Billboard notes that the man’s report aligns with one from Mexican publication Semanario Playa News Aquí y Ahora, which blamed the attack on a drug cartel dispute. Quintana Roo state is a longstanding hotbed of cartel and drug-trafficking activity, sources said. The Quintana Roo District Attorney’s office told Billboard the shooting was most likely drug-related and aimed at a single target.

A 23-year-old man from Los Angeles told Billboard he saw people outside of Blue Parrot lining up in strange formations before the shooting began, suggesting several of them knew it was coming.

“Outside the club it seemed like there were people actually squaring up as though it might have been cartel-related,” he said. “It gave them the feeling that something was about to happen.”

A DJ told Billboard he was confident that the shooting came from multiple gunmen. After jumping over a beachside fence to escape the fire within Blue Parrot, the DJ said people that were with him saw a second gunmen running down the beach. It “felt like a statement,” he told Billboard. The official version of events “do not check out” to him, he said.

One industry source told Billboard he heard gunfire coming from at least two blocks away from Blue Parrot while escaping the scene. He said he witnessed “yelling that they saw somebody shooting from a car,” and cited friends’ accounts of shooters both inside and outside the nightclub and on the beach.

“It couldn’t be in the same spot,” he told Billboard. “I must have heard shots that happened from the beach or street. How can one guy be shooting all this and not get caught?”

Eyewitnesses are reporting multiple gunmen involved in BPM shooting

This post was originally published on this site

Citing police confirmation, The BPM Festival released an official statement yesterday, January 16, which asserted that the attack at Blue Parrot nightclub which killed five people and injured fifteen more was the work of “a lone shooter.” Eyewitnesses, however, are contradicting BPM’s statement, claiming that the shooting was carried out by multiple gunmen – with some accounts reporting the number of assailants to be as high as five.

Billboard has published statements from several anonymized eyewitnesses detailing the events of the Blue Parrot shooting. A 28-year old Australian man who was at the scene of the shooting has told Billboard that he saw “five Mexican men in black leather jackets attempt to gain entry to the Blue Parrot.” The same attendee alleges to have later seen one of the men exiting the incident through a police perimeter in “a button-down shirt, fedora hat and glasses, and…no longer wearing a leather jacket.”

Billboard has reported the following information from the Sydney attendee’s testimony:

“They got denied because they didn’t want to be patted down…Three of them left out of our vision and two of them shot security guards at the entrance, ran in and aimlessly opened fire. There were two guys there, not one like the news incorrectly reports.

“Outside the club it seemed like there were people actually squaring up as though it might have been cartel-related…It gave them the feeling that something was about to happen.”

Billboard notes the similarities between the above attendee’s account and an unverified report by local Mexican publication, Semanario Playa News Aquí y Ahora.

Another eyewitness to the incident, who Billboard deems “an industry source,” vehemently denies the notion that the attack was carried out by a lone gunman:

“There’s no way there was just one shooter…I must have heard shots that happened from the beach or street. How can one guy be shooting all this and not get caught?

The same source told the publication that he heard three rounds of gunfire, and reports from other attendees of an assailant firing shots from a car.

An “internationally-known male DJ/producer” who escaped from the shooting further corroborated the story of multiple gunmen to Billboard, stating, “I just want people to know the truth, because it was not just some crazy lone gunman…I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel right.”

Billboard notes that they have contacted The BPM Festival and authorities for statement, but have not published any response at press time. After ten years in Playa del Carmen, BPM has been banned for future editions.

BPM banned from Playa del Carmen; victim identities and shooting details confirmed [Breaking]

State officials have announced that after 10 years, BPM Festival is no longer welcome in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Playa del Carmen’s Mayor of Solidarity Cristina Torres Gómez–a goodwill liaison between tourists and locals–announced that strong regulations will be developed to protect Playa del Carmen’s tourist friendly atmosphere.

Among the regulations, Gómez announced that night activity will be strictly monitored. She also announced an immediate ban on both BPM and the Arena Festival, scheduled to take place in February.

“We want these types of events to go,” Torres Gómez said. “We won’t allow one more.”

The Playa is typically much less violent than the cartel contested regions in mainland Mexico and is often affectionately referred to as the face of Mexico. BPM will likely still hold events in Brazil and Portugal, as was recently announced.

Mexican news sources have also confirmed the names of those injured and deceased and revealed new details about the suspected shooter in the Blue Parrot nightclub shooting that took place early Monday morning during the Elrow closing party at BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

According to several sources including Quintana Roo’s Attorney General, the victims have been identified as Kirk Wilson of Toronto, Daniel Pessina of Italy, Geovanni Francisco Ruiz Murillo of Mexico, and Rafael Antonio Peñalosa Vega of Mexico. While the former three were declared dead on site, Vega died minutes after being admitted to the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), a state run hospital in Playa Del Carmen.

Alejandra Margarita Villanueva Ibarra of the United States has also been confirmed dead by the Attorney General and by her family in Colorado. Reports confirm Ibarra was crushed to death in the stampede to exit when shots broke out inside the club.

The Quintana Roo Prosecutor’s office has confirmed that the altercation took place at 2:28 am, Monday January 16  when a patron was denied entry to the bar for carrying a gun. Quintana Roo Prosecutor Miguel Angel Pech Cen had previously confirmed that four people of interest were being held in relation to the event, but no charges have been filed. He also firmly ruled out any ties to terrorist activity.

State officials also confirmed that the suspect left behind several items including a t-shirt, a Tuarus .38 revolver, and numerous shell casings from several handguns including: 6 .38 revolver shells, 8  9 millimeter shells, and 6 .380 caliber shells.

The Governor of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquin, confirmed details about the shooting and reiterated the importance of cracking down on violence in the region in a dispatch on the state’s website. “We will implement decisive actions to avoid aggressions of any kind in this state that is the window of Mexico and the pride of all Mexicans,” said Gov. Joaquin. “Measures will be taken to maintaine [sic] the order and security in all of our tourist destinations.”

“All crimes are reprehensible,” he added, “but certainly, the most are those that have consequences for innocent people.”
