Mad Cool adds Lauryn Hill, Empire Of The Sun, The Gossip, and more to already expansive 2019 lineupMad Cool Festival Main Stage

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.

Justice Skolnik puts forth bold remix of Khalid and Disclosure’s ‘Talk’

Justice Skolnik puts forth bold remix of Khalid and Disclosure’s ‘Talk’1494893517842

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.

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

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.

Khalid - "Talk" (Prod.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 164, featuring Disclosure, Lane 8, Bonobo, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


If Disclosure can successfully introduce a house beat to the lyrics of “Fools Rush In,” you can thwart the end-of-weekend demons. “Where Angels Fear To Tread,” off the duo’s forthcoming project, offers a litany of lush strings, jazz acapella vocal samples, and a highly medicinal bass line.

Head to British songstress Litany’s ’80s-inspired “Bedroom” for a full-bodied breath of electronic-pop therapy. Her wistful vocals float over softly jubilant production infused with an island effect, complements of the track’s wavering marimba synth.

Lane 8‘s latest and first of 2019, “Visions” is just as it sounds. “Visions” is benevolently scheduled under DA’s “highly potent hallucinogens,” with its deliberate, rousing beat and a fluttering, euphoria-procuring synth line, like fractals dancing in the night.

Like so many of Bonobo‘s creations, “Second Sun” exudes a subtle, twinkling majesty. Its melancholy-hopeful instrumentals set the tone for the week ahead.

Louis Futon‘s most recent offering leading up to his new album, “Supposed To Be” caps this week’s Sunday Morning Medicine on a soothing note. DUCKWRTH and BAEGOD’s feel-good rhymes remind listeners of better weather and easy living.

As Elements Lakewood Music & Arts Festival looks ahead to its third iteration with the release of its 2019 lineup, the expression “the third time’s a charm” is particularly apt. Boasting a number of heavy hitters hailing from the house genre, Elements Lakewood’s lineup will bring Disclosure, FISHER, Shiba San, and Justin Martin to Elements’ Pennsylvania home, to script a bumping next chapter in the festival’s history of production. Spanning more than 100 artists in its totality, the festival’s 2019 lineup also sees Elements Lakewood organizers issue noteworthy nods to Big Gigantic, Sofi Tukker, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, and Clozee, among other artists.

A favorite among camping enthusiasts, Elements Lakewood will once more blend talent from techno, bass, jam rock, funk, and other sub-genres on a sprawling 200-acre campground that offers attendees five different stages of musical diversion. Complete with wellness activities like aromatherapy and sunset yoga, not to mention a myriad of camp games including basketball and volleyball, Elements Lakewood ensures that attendees won’t spend a single second of their time at the event idle. In a credit to the diversity of Elements Lakewood’s offerings, event-goers will also have the opportunity to partake in kayak trips at sunset, water sports like canoeing and swimming, and post-dusk adventures like a stroll through a kaleidoscope light-decorated forest.

Back to offer the ultimate soul renewal experience in its seamless intermingling of outdoor fun and good music, Elements Lakewood is a bona fide must attend for 2019.

A limited number of early bird three-day GA and VIP passes to the festival’s 2019 edition are now available and can be purchased here.
