EDC Orlando unveils 2019 lineup, expands to three daysEdc Orlando 1

2019 promises to be a banner year of production for Electric Daisy Carnival‘s (EDC) East Coast arm in Orlando, as the staple of the Sunshine State festival circuit unveils its largest lineup yet.

The event will bring a broader selection of electronic talent to Tinker Field from November 8-10 as it expands from a two- to a three-day dance affair to accommodate its voracious following. Jam-packed with the genre’s most acclaimed artists, EDC Orlando’s 2019 lineup features 3LAU, ZHU, Kaskade, Habstrakt, Diplo, DJ Snake, CamelPhat, Gorgon City, just to name a few from the star-spangled roster. More than 20 artists will make their timely Orlando debut, including ANNA, FISHER, Nora En Pure, i_o, and San Holo, among others.

An array of stage takeovers further diversifies EDC Orlando’s agenda. Adam Beyer and Green Velvet will curate branded talent for their Drumcode and La La Land demonstrations, respectively. Dreamstate will meanwhile cater to the trance enthusiasts in attendance, while Bassrush, LA’s Factory93, and Insomniac Music Group will assemble their own aural armies across their takeovers. The mau5trap crew is more than likely to further the trademarked fun with a band of We Are Friends envoys.

Passes to EDC Orlando’s 2019 chapter are now available here.

DJ Snake reveals Burna Boy collaboration ‘No Option’ was originally written for Rihanna

DJ Snake reveals Burna Boy collaboration ‘No Option’ was originally written for RihannaDj Snake On Decks Swagger Rukes

Ah, what could have been.

In a new interview with Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe, Parisian hitmaker DJ Snake revealed his July single alongside Burna Boy, “No Option” was originally intended for none other than Rihanna. The track’s distinct dancehall frame would have been the perfect backdrop for a Rihanna smash, but alas, the beat wound up finding a home on DJ Snake’s recently released sophomore LP, Carte Blanche. The reason “No Option” never turned into Rih’s next big hit? Simply put, DJ Snake just loved the beat too much to give it up. According to Snake,

“I made the beat in Paris last year… [Rihanna] wanted this record for a year and we ended up using it. You know because I fell in love with this record and I don’t know…I don’t want to say like the wrong things so all the Rihanna fans is going to kill me. I just had to follow my heart. That’s it.”

The Barbadian pop queen has been long at work on her hotly anticipated ninth LP. Over the last year, sources have signaled to a reggae/dancehall record on the way, with rumors suggesting Rihanna is sorting through as many as 500 songs for the album. Furthermore, Diplo, Skrillex, and Calvin Harris have all been tied to the elusive ninth album as well.

NEVERSEA to bring Alesso, DJ Snake, Sub Focus, and more to the Romanian coastlineNeversea

Tucked along the Romanian Black Sea shores, NEVERSEA Festival is bringing another four days of electronic music eminence to the Constanța coast.

NEVERSEA’s July 4-7 lineup is complete with upper-echelon radio-ready talent and underground emblems alike. From Afrojack to Andy C, DJ Snake to Dubfire, Steve Aoki to Sub Focus, there are plenty of aural avenues for electronic lovers to peruse throughout the extended weekend. House and techno heathens should trickle over to the Temple stage to find clandestine club space veterans like Hot Creations founder, Jamie Jones, Bucharest-based Arapu, and masked minimal techno enigma, Boris Brejcha. Meanwhile, dubstep/drum ‘n’ bass devotees will find their footing along the Ark stage, where Sub Focus, Andy C, Flux Pavilion, and Rudimental are more than likely to be inciting high-speed sonic riots.

The beachfront festival has the ingredients to satiate dance-pop and underground audiophiles all the same, while challenging them to step out of their sonic comfort zones in the process. Last year’s installment saw roughly 210,000 visitors across its four-day span, with performances from Armin van Buuren, Lost Frequencies, Nina Kraviz, Black Coffee, and more via its genre-traversing lineup.

The NEVERSEA team has proven adept on the Eastern Eurpoean event front, heading another even more voraciously attended festival, UNTOLD. The Transylvanian trove of electronic talent welcomed upwards of 350,000 visitors for its 2018 leg. UNTOLD will usher in its fifth installment this August, with the likes of NERO, Bastille, David Guetta, Pendulum, and dozens more. Find the lineup here.

Tickets to NEVERSEA, the full lineup, and general festival information are available here.

Flashing back to April of this year, DJ Snake extended his interminable archive of notable collaborations when he unleashed his hip-hop blockbuster, “Enzo.” The posse cut showcased A-listers including Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes, and now the track has received a boost from Snake’s masked affiliate and fellow Pardon My French teammate, Malaa.

Those attending EDC Las Vegas this summer received a fleeting introduction to Malaa’s bouncy rendition of “Enzo” making him a clear candidate to handle the first official remix. The Ferrari-denominated flip is a welcomed pivot for those craving a quicker tempo than DJ Snake’s original cut. This is far from Malaa’s first remix for Snake— it’s inevitable that the duo ready a proper collaboration, especially considering the two are rumored for back-to-back performances at this year’s Hard Summer and Electric Zoo.
