Austin City Limits Music Festival has unleashed its 2019 lineup ahead of its two autumnal weekends: Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13.

Since 2002, the festival has drawn music fans spanning all genres to Zilker Park for consecutive weekends of the industry’s top names. This year’s iteration boasts Guns n’ Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure, Cardi B (weekend one), Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, and Robyn (weekend two) as headliners. Electronic music fans will delight in lineup additions like GRiZ, RL Grime, Fisher, Hippie Sabotage, Kaytranada, Troyboi, Jai Wolf, and more.

Childish Gambino was forced to cancel his appearance at last year’s festival after a foot injury, so fans who were hoping to catch his performance in 2018 will delight in two performances at the festival’s 2019 edition.

The festival features eight different stages to cater to fans of rock, indie, country, folk, electronic, and hip-hop, so regardless of one’s musical persuasion, this lineup features something for everyone.

Tickets and more information are available here.

Grant Kwiecinski, better known as Detroit-based DJ and producer GRiZ, has spent the last few years modestly making major career moves. Aside from his penchant for touring and festival performances, he released the second edition of his Chasing the Golden Hour mixtape series in 2017, and started quietly releasing singles towards the end of 2018. Now back in full force, GRiZ has released his sixth studio album, Ride Waves.

An album full of features, GRiZ maneuvers previously uncharted territories with high profile talent like Snoop Dogg, Bootsy Collins, and Wiz Khalifa, while bringing on some long-time favorites like Muzzy Bearr, Yoshi Flower (formerly of Gosh Pith), and Leo Napier. With funk and bass taking a front seat as always, Ride Waves expands on GRiZ’s classic sound over 14 tracks, which can all be streamed below.

Anjuna-adept festival-goers will notice the generous number of names from Above & Beyond‘s hallowed home for all things trance and house music to celebrate the Anjuna-branded stage that will land at SAMF this year along with a menagerie of native talent, from longtime veteran Andrew Bayer to former The M Machine member, Luttrell, who just released his first album with the label’s subsidiary imprint, Anjunadeep. From Spring Awakening’s subterranean bass caverns will spawn Liquid Stranger, Rusko, TroyBoi, G Jones, and more across the sweeping, 60-artist ticket.

Announced earlier this week, Spring Awakening 2019’s headliners GRiZ, REZZ, Martin Garrix, DJ Snake, Zedd, and Illenium will touch down at Hoffman Estate’s Poplar Creek for the festival’s first year at its expansive new location June 7-9.

GRiZ teams up with Wiz Khalifa on a soulful hip-hop single, ‘Find My Own Way,’ from forthcoming ‘Ride Waves’ LP

GRiZ invites Wiz Khalifa for a new feature on “Find My Own Way”—a soulful gospel piece from GRiZ’s upcoming Ride Waves LP. The track has an upbeat tone about perseverance, introducing Khalifa early on with delicate jazz piano and accompanying horns. The Pittsburgh-native rapper glides effortlessly along the easygoing rhythm that flows into a Sunday service hook presented by the Harlem Gospel Choir. There’s a bridge that brings the brass section out front, allowing those funky GRiZ horns some due time to shine. A second verse showcases a more familiar Khalifa flow, contrasting to his first more melodic vocal section.

The Michigan DJ/producer told Complex,

“I wanted to write a song that reflects how it feels to lose your way in life, and also lift yourself back up and find the strength to keep going. Always trust in the process and yourself. Wiz spit some real knowledge here. Was such an honor to have him on this project!”

“Find My Own Way” is the fifth single released from GRiZ’s upcoming 14-track LP, set to drop in full on April 5. After the album, GRiZ embarks on a US tour starting March 23. Pre-order Ride Waves on iTunes here.

GRiZ and Wiz Khalifa bring an easygoing atmosphere to their new single, “Find My Own Way,” and Autograf break their silence with a new groovy single, “Hold Me Back” with John Splithoff.

The Midwest’s heftiest, strictly electronic music festival, Spring Awakening, will be taking its talents to the northwest suburbs of Chicago for its 2019 iteration, which includes an impressive-as-ever top of the ticket: DJ Snake, REZZ, Martin Garrix, Zedd, Illenium, and GRiZ.

The Hoffman Estates-held Spring Awakening will run June 7-9 at Poplar Creek, a 27-acre property (more than double that of 2018’s grounds, Addams/Medill Park). The new locale will likely equip the fest with the means to reduce noise pollution, overcrowding, cramped stage setups, and additional space-oriented festival conundrums. Since its first year as a multi-day festival, Spring Awakening has seen two different venue shifts. It was initially held in downtown Chicago at the hallowed Solider Field from 2012-2015.

Past installments of the React Presents hallmark event brought the likes of Alison Wonderland, Tiësto, Adventure Club, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, and Zeds Dead, just to name a few. This year’s chapter is expected to feature some 90 artists throughout its three-day span.

The entirety of the lineup is set for announcement Friday, March 15. Tickets to Spring Awakening are on sale now, here.

GRiZ and Matisyahu release video for the protest song Americans need

This post was originally published on this site

GRiZ and Matisyahu release video for the protest song Americans need201902 Griznewday 1218 1

GRiZ and Matisyahu’s much-anticipated single off GRiZ’s upcoming album Ride Waves, “A New Day,” has been picking up traction since it’s release on Feb 22. With the release of its visual counterpart, the collaboration arguably embodies something that dance music has not succeeded in capturing—a call to action.

Some of the most influential and timeless songs have been protest songs; Woody Guthry’s storytelling and influence led to Bob Dylan giving the 60’s “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” injustice in the inner city in the 1980’s lead to NWA’s “Fuck Tha Police,” the misguided wars in the middle east led to Bruce Springsteen’s “Bring ‘Em Home,” more recently Jay Z captured an entire era of race relations and oppression with “The Story of OJ.” These songs tackled issues. They brought them to the forefront of daily lives and made people ask the questions they were averse to even thinking about. They are prime examples of the impact music can have on the world.

GRiZ and Matisyahu wrote “A New Day” just days after the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Their collaboration utilized GRiZ’s ability to capture attention and promote positivity through an anthem. Matisyahu’s voice over the garden of sound GRiZ so delicately curated surpasses—even levels—predespositions on the issue, reopening the ears and eyes of a sleeping giant.

The music video for “A New Day” raises the curtain for the track shedding light on one of the most challenging issues today, the gun violence crisis. The images reinvigorate an issue people have become almost numb to. “A New Day” follows real people who have been personally affected in different ways due to gun violence. These individuals are all American and have all suffered greatly. Another thing they share in common is their strength. In each of their eyes is a spark of resilience, a spark that could start a much-needed fire. They show viewers, not just the pain of the individual, but the unifying strength to stand up to make the change that is lives in every American.

“Collaborating with real people was such a humbling experience as each of the individuals we worked with all endured unspeakable hardships yet remained resilient, positive and beyond generous in helping us to complete this project,” said Director Robert Nyerges, “We hope that this film will be one small step forward on the path to progressive change.”

The impactful shots of protests on Washington, vigils from Vegas, statistics on suicide, and the expressions of insurmountable pain from actual people who experienced firsthand leave no doubt that this crisis is real and action needs to be taken by every American, now.
