Last week started off with a bang as Lightning In A Bottle presented by The Do LaB kicked off their 2019 5-day music and arts festival in Central California. While, festival goers were initially apprehensive of this year’s Lightning In A Bottle due to the festival’s venue change to Bakersfield, California and date change; Lightning

Mad Cool’s lineup arrives as an exemplification of its name. Madrid’s multifarious music festival, Mad Cool is genre amorphous from its headliners to its flanking acts. Lauryn Hill, Empire Of The Sun, The Gossip, and Prophets Of Rage appear as the newest headliners to top the bill, which already touts Bon Iver, The National, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Cure. Festival organizers have added several more artists to the festival’s expansive collection of talent, including Marina–formerly of Marina & The Diamonds–Let’s Eat Grandma, SG Lewis, Black Honey, Haiku Hands, and more.
A veritable sonic sampler, Mad Cool merges many genres, including, of course, the electronic. The Chemical Brothers, Disclosure, Charlotte De Witte, Eric Prydz, Years & Years, and Bonobo represent just some of Mad Cool’s dance selections. Mad Cool will host its musically explorative 2019 iteration from July 11-13. Tickets to the festival are currently available for purchase, here.

The musical articulation of the sentiment that prompts the “what are we?” talk in an emerging relationship, Disclosure and Khalid‘s collaboration, “Talk,” has pervaded radio airwaves and playlists alike. The cautiously curious lyrical nature of the track, combined with Disclosure’s characteristic groove-inducing production rendered the song an instant commercial success, and from Justice Skolnik‘s perspective, Skolnik’s latest re-imaginative endeavor. The electronic power of Skolnik’s take is noticeably more potent than that of Khalid and Disclosure’s decidedly smooth-flowing number, which doubles as a tempered, pop-leaning effort and R&B reminiscent single, all in one.
Gone is the languid pace of the original, and the crisp percussive pops that create the head bob worthy rhythm of “Talk.” Listeners instead receive starry synths that sonically shimmer, drum-like accents that amplify the percussive aspect of Skolnik’s remix, a build that accelerates the BPM, and a layered, multi-chord drop. Skolnik’s showing provides a satisfyingly fresh perspective on Disclosure and Khalid’s inescapable joint project.

In the titular fashion of their most recent single, Disclosure are giving fans something to “Talk” about: a US tour.

The tour will kick off in California, where Disclosure will appear at Lightning in a Bottle Festival. Pennsylvania’s BangON! Elements Campout and Michigan’s Movement Electronic Music Festival round out tour’s festival billings.

Do LaB festival producers present a stacked lineup for this year’s Lightning in a Bottle music festival, featuring Disclosure, Santigold, Gramatik, Toro y Moi, Big Gigantic, Elohim, and Flying Lotus‘ 3D concert experience. Artists taking over the beloved Woogie stage include Lane 8, DJ Koze, Damian Lazarus, Lutrell, Shiba San, Recondite live, and more. Bass heads will reunite at the low end-heavy thunder stage with sub-booming performances from G Jones, 1788-L, CloZee, EPROM and Alix Perez’s SHADES project, the funk bass stylings of OPIUO, and more.
For the past five years, the festival took place at San Antonio Reservoir Recreation Area in Bradley, California; and the last two years were met tragically with the death of a festival attendee at each. Now, the festival has moved to a new venue at Buena Vista Lake in Central California, with lush, green pastures, a shaded tree line, and accessible shoreline that’s sure to bring festival-goers in full force.
Tickets are currently on sale for Lightning in a Bottle 2019. Purchase them here.

Disclosure rocked the world early in 2018 when they announced they would be taking an indefinite hiatus from performing live. By the end of the year, it was clear that the break was well worth it for fans when the brothers cranked out a series of funky and outstanding new singles. Disclosure has started to
The post Khalid Releases The New Single Produced By Disclosure – ‘Talk’ appeared first on EDM Sauce.
Khalid‘s latest single “Talk,” has officially hit the Beats 1 Radio airwaves. The brand new Disclosure-produced collaboration is a soulful rendition that evokes feelings of stillness. Veteran radio host Zane Lowe spoke with Khalid in regards to the song’s meaning, ahead of the track’s debut.
Khalid eloquently explained that “Talk” is set in the honeymoon stage of a relationship. The track itself calmly reflects on the importance of awareness and the communication one must engage in to move forward as the intensity of love settles in. With a voice so unique that it simply cannot be mimicked, Khalid croons, “Can’t we just talk? Talk about where we’re going/Before we get lost/Let me out fast/Can’t get what we want without knowing.” Disclosure’s production backdrop serves up the dreamy yet steady beat for Khalid’s words and emotion to swim through. Khalid said, “It’s one of my favorite songs I have ever been a part of.”
“Talk” is the lead single off Khalid’s upcoming sophomore album, which the El Paso sensation announced would be released before his upcoming performance at Coachella.
