Florida is quickly becoming a home to bass music. The scene is quickly growing in cities like Tampa, Miami, and Orlando. Now, the Sunshine State will have it’s very own bass and dubstep festival with Forbidden Kingdom. 2019 will be the first year for the festival but early bird tickets have already sold out. With a
On a video promoted by Kanye West, Dame Dash is pitching a beat he calls his own to Mr. West. Dash is seen feeling this beat for a total of one minute and 17 seconds, selling Kanye on his creative genius. Unfortunately for the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, that song isn’t his. It’s Diplo‘s from his 2004 album, Florida, “Sarah.“
Dash says in the video, “Yo, bro. I’ma send you this beat. Don’t talk that shit talkin’ bout you ready to rap, had me come cook some shit up, get in the lab. We make shit up. I’m in the studio, making motherfucking records, and I got more, so just let me know. You have to respect my creativity in this motherfucker. I’m only telling you this to get you hyped over this shit. I’ma email this shit to you. Let this shit get your mind right.”
Hyping up his genius creativity and ownership for over a minute became cringeworthy once the Mad Decent label boss called him out Twitter. The fake Diplo account created for Vice’s comedy What Would Diplo Do?
Embattled rapper XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, has died following a shooting earlier today (June 18, 2018) in his home state of Florida. He was 20 years old. The rapper, who’s career breakout has been marred by extensive legal trouble since his emergence in 2015, was reportedly shot outside of a Deerfield Beach motorcycle dealership. Broward County police responded to the call around 4:00pm EST and transported the victim to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Despite the highly controversial nature of the young rapper’s appeal, XXXTentacion released two critically acclaimed LP’s, 17 and ?, that both managed to chart exceptionally well. Prayers and supportive messages from his contemporaries have begun pouring in from rappers, producers, and DJs from across the world.
RIP XXX….. your music will always live forever brother
everyone is so quick to aim their criticism at other people but fail to point it at themselves, no one is perfect, everyone deserves compassion, everyone has space to grow, not justifying any abusive behavior, just saying
Right now I only wanna point out one thing abt the XXX situation:
You see a guy, shot in his car, laying there dead or clinging to life, and your first thought is to walk up inches from his body and film it so u can post it on snap or insta? Is this really our society right now?
Diplo has dropped off his first solo project since 2013’s Revolution, the new seven-track collection, California.Don’t let the title fool you — random white dude still be everywhere, though nowadays the Mad Decent head leans much more west coast than anything, and lately he’s enjoyed some time in the studio with a batch of rap’s most in-demand young up-and-comers. Recruiting work from Lil Yachty, Desiigner, DRAM, MØ, Goldlink, Trippie Redd, and controversial rhymer on the rise Lil Xan, the new EP sees Diplo reaffirm his status as one of today’s top A&Rs, all rolled up and tightly packed into a wrap fit for pop music’s most ambitious force behind the console.
The EP includes previously released material, including “Look Back, “Get It Right,” and “Worry No More.” Each track on the EP features Diplo’s chameleonic style wrapped around different lyrical deliveries, with each rapper and vocalist obviously inspired by their Californian surroundings in different creative ways. One listen through California highlights just how far the Major Lazer frontman has come since his 2004 debut, Florida — and it’s a lot further than just coast to coast. Florida was the beginning of Diplo’s grind, and California plays a lot more like the type of music one could sit back and watch a young man’s game unfold to. And 15 years after his studio debut landed, its safe to say Diplo has undoubtedly earned that right.
Sneaking your MDMA into Ultra using a rotisserie chicken? Sounds like quite the stretch, but a recent study conducted by the Boca Raton-based Take 5 Media Group reports that this situation is indeed a reality.
The company conducted the study for a behavioral health treatment facility, Florida House Experience, in Deerfield Beach — which resides less than an hour outside of Miami. Florida House Experience works with such local universities as University of Miami, Florida International University, and Barry University to provide rehabilitation, addiction counseling, and mental health services to patients.
Their aim with this investigative study was to find out what kinds of drugs were being purchased at music festivals, what they were being cut with, who was doing the selling, and how users were sneaking them in.
Here are the winners:
As far as sneaking in goodies to music festivals, underwear was the most popular method of transfer; although, rotisserie chickens and prosthetic limbs were also noted as used methods.
One of the studies most disconcerting conclusions was that most drug users — 63 percent — obtained their substance(s) of choice off a one-time encounter with a stranger.
Even worse are the “unidentifiable additions of unmarked and sometimes dangerous substances,” reports Take 5 in the study. “Beyond being unrecognizable to the naked eye, these cutting agents are sometimes significantly stronger than the drugs they’re labeled as, creating deadly consequences.”
Take 5 reports that jam festivals such as Summercamp or High Sierra revealed 89 percent of attendees reporting they’d been offered illicit substances at jam festivals. EDM came in as a close second, with 83 percent of attendees reporting being offered drugs.
All of that drug use clouds the frontal lobe and likely causes spikes in the libido of horny festival goers, as Take 5 reports that nearly one in four attendees admitted to having unprotected sex after using drugs at EDM Festivals.

A shooting in Mount Dora, Florida has left one dead, and one in critical condition.
Authorities report that the two men were shot near Sheridan Road at approximately 2:30 AM on Saturday morning. The shooting has reportedly been linked to a large “Project X” style rave held in the area where anywhere from 500 to 1,000 people were in attendance.
One of the victims, Steven Charlostin, 21, was found fatally shot within a car that had been reported stolen. Another man was discovered in a driveway and later taken to a hospital. Both men had been present at the party that evening, the event hosted in a “nearby plaza.”
The exact location of the shooting is unknown. Police currently do not have information on the shooter.
It is about that time again ladies and gentleman, Okeechobee early bird tickets have officially gone on sale! Since the first opening of the portal in 2016, Okeechobee has managed to attract so many people to its festival with its amazing lineup, wild art, and it’s more than expected experience.

With so many festivals popping up lately, it’s important to set yourself apart from the crowd. In that fashion, a trend of boutique, exclusive festivals has arisen featuring more than just music, and a very selective crowd. Venues for these festivals can vary wildly, from forests to deserts, and attendance is usually anywhere between 400 to 2,000, making these very intimate occasions.
The newest event is called Asteria, and only 400 tickets will be sold. Rather than the litany of festivals featuring acts from the Desert Hearts crew (and inevitably Kalya Scintilla), Asteria is comprised of entirely Florida locals – with some surprise headliners to sweeten the pot.
Three weeks before the start of Asteria, guests will begin to receive customized packages containing information for their camping group (such as workshop, artist info, schedules, a map, and the reveal of our headliners) along with various gifts from selected sponsors & vendors. After their arrival, guests will be greeted and given tours of the property with the goal of helping them get acquainted with the grounds, vendors and sponsors. After setting up camp, guests will be free to roam around the property and par-take in any of the activities or live performances offered.
With various live performances, workshops & themed stages, Asteria is able to recreate the underground atmosphere that is typically lost with larger events, while still providing state-of-the-art sound, lighting, audio and a professional team of experienced event staff. Asteria attracts not only the average festival goer, but guests looking to break-away from the average “Club Style” festival experience.
