Dog Blood reveal HARD Summer will be their only festival in 2017

This post was originally published on this site

Perhaps the best surprise of the HARD Summer Musical Festival 10th anniversary line-up was the news that Dog Blood would be topping the bill in 2017. As the supergroup side project conceived by Skrillex and Boys Noize, the two haven’t appeared together since HARD Red Rocks nearly two years ago.

On May 18th, however, Dog Blood took to their Facebook socials to express their excitement for HSMF, but also to announce to fans that it would be their only show in 2017. The announcement most likely comes as a joy to HARD founder Gary Richards, since Dog Blood is sure to draw in a massive crowd on their own. Now that it’s been confirmed as their first and only show in nearly two years, tickets should be start flying off the decks.

Maybe there’s a possibility for the return of Dog Blood in 2018? There’s no way to know for sure, but their HARD Summer appearance is sure to be the 2017 festival set to see. Grab tickets here to join Dog Blood August 5-6, 2017 at The Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

Check out a 360° view of Holy Ship

This post was originally published on this site

The wonders of 360° photography are allowing people to have an even more immersive streaming experience when it comes to events they cannot attend. This year, a fan operating under the guise of EDM Daycare took a camera to Holy Ship’s first weekend to capture a snippet of the action for those wondering what it might be like to party with Destructo and his crew onboard a ship en route to paradise.

The clip clocks in at a brief two minutes, but images of people happily partying on the beach and on the boat decks along with crowds of people walking happily through vibrantly-lit rooms transformed into dance spaces is just enough to spark enough intrigue for potential festival-goers to try joining the party in 2018. Explore the ship’s majesty in the video player above.

Vanic Releases A Stellar New Remix Of The Chainsmokers’ “Setting Fires”

This post was originally published on this site

Only a few days ago, Vanic was sharing a teaser of his forthcoming remix of “Setting Fires” by The Chainsmokers and XYLO. Well, that remix is no longer “forthcoming” as it’s just dropped in its full glory, and we’re absolutely addicted to this interpretation.

With an intense riser leading into the drop, we’re hit with a bouncy and fully-textured synth that just oozes style and flair. The powerful and crunchy drop is almost as impressive as just how well the vocals from XYLO hold up in the new style.

I always give producers shit for putting something out under three minutes, but there’s just so much packed into this tight, 2m50s package that I can’t deny it still works. Even better, I really don’t mind keeping it on repeat all day. Check it out below.

Ecstasy confirmed as cause of death in 3 Hard Summer fatalities

This post was originally published on this site

Back in August, three attendees of HARD Summer — all between the ages of 20 and 22 years old — tragically passed away at the Southern California music festival. Hot weather was deemed a contributing factor, with temperatures reaching the upper-90s throughout the weekend. The primary causes of death, however, were not immediately clear.

Nearly four months later, the coroner has issued an official report, confirming ecstasy as the primary cause of death in all three cases. Mike Sutcliffe, the supervising coroner investigator, labeled the deaths as due to “acute MDMA toxicity.”

According to Fontana Herald News, who reported the coroner’s statement, the three deaths are believed to be “the most ever caused by Ecstasy at one high-profile Electronic Dance Music (EDM) festival.”

It’s troubling news for HARD Summer, who experienced two deaths the year prior, also linked to ecstasy overdose. More than that, however, it’s a sobering reminder about the inherent dangers of MDMA and the absolutely necessity for more drug safety awareness. Nothing will change until we change the culture itself.

Destructo Talks New Release, Renegade Tour and More [Exclusive Interview]

This post was originally published on this site

The HARD Father himself, Gary Richards aka Destructo, is one of the leading names in the dance music community. From founding event massive HARD (name behind HARD Summer, Day of the Dead, Holy Ship and more) to creating an empire with his own production and DJing talent, Richards has become a mogul and essential piece to the rise of electronic music in the States.

Currently embarking on his Renegade tour and bringing names like ILoveMakonnen, Vindata and many more on the road with him, not to mention just off the release of his latest single “Winning” featuring upcoming rapper Problem, we got to talk with the man himself to catch up on his time on the road, new music, HARD and more.

You just finished up your first few stops of your new tour with iLoveMakonnen and many more! How was the first few shows?

Destructo: Everything was dope. Check the video:

You’ve got a wild variety of acts on these upcoming shows from iLoveMakonnen to Hotel Garuda and everything in between! How did you choose such a diverse line up?

D: Just wanted to mix it up. So many times people do the same things. I always want to change things up and be a Renegade to shake the norm.

How was the change in location for HARD Summer? Do you like the new location more?

D: The Speedway is the perfect location for what we do. Just need to adjust things to make it better for next year.

Are you excited to be branching HARD into Australia? Can we expect any crazy surprises for the inaugural event?

D: We have been in Australia for many years at Stereosonic with the HARD stages that we produce. We always have some tricks up our sleeves. You will have to wait and see.

You’ve been a prominent taste maker in the electronic scene for years. Are there any acts you’re really excited about that are on the come up?

D: Wax Motif, Drezo, Ganz, Dateless, Taiki Nulight, Chris Lorenzo, too many to name.

Your last few singles have seen you work with names like Ty Dolla $ign, Wax Motif, iLoveMakonnen and many more. Is there any names in music right now you absolutely have to work with?

D: Wait till you see who I got on the new Renegade EP coming in January. I think it is going to be on the next level.

With so many milestones accomplished in your career, what is one goal you still are aiming to achieve as a musician and also as the founder of HARD?

D: Book Daft Punk and make a tune with Dr Dre.

If you could go back in time and give advice to your past self when you first got into music, what would you want to tell yourself?

D: Always stick to your gut instinct. You know what you are doing.

Your newest tune “Winning” featuring Problem couples G-House with Problem’s infectious hip hop vocals seamlessly. How did you first get in contact with Problem?

D: We recorded “Winning” the same night as “Dare You 2 Move.” Just took a minute to get this one right. Problem is a real G.

Are there any other rappers that you have your eyes on to collab with?

D: Dr. Dre.

How did you initially get exposed to the hip hop and rap world?

D: My dad was on the radio. I have a platinum plaque on my office wall from the Sugarhill Gang. I have been around rap music pretty much from day one.

Who are some of your favorite classics and present day voices in the hip hop and rap game?

D: Yo Gotti, Kevin Gates, Snoop Dogg, Skepta, Giggs, Denzel Curry, D.R.A.M, E-40


With only a few more dates remaining on the Renegade tour, make sure to catch Destructo and friends as they wrap up the year strong and to check out “Winning” below to get a taste of what’s in store as Richards takes 2017 to brand new heights.

Ultra Music Festival is now far behind us in the rearview, with less time to the next one than time since the previous one. That being said, there’s still a ton of music from the annual Miami festival that we’re still waiting for. One of those tracks is this absolutely massive ID between Armin Van Buuren and W&W.

With huge synths and an incredibly booming drop, this is one track that even trance haters can get into.
