Another installment of New Orleans festival Voodoo has officially arrived, bringing 65-plus acts across diverse genres together for one jam-packed Halloween weekend. Taking place in New Orleans’ City Park on the Festival Grounds during weekend of October 25-27, the music and arts experience has attracted more than 2000 artists to play since its 1999 debut. Voodoo’s programming traditionally focused on rock and punk artists, having hosted Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Duran Duran, Nine Inch Nails—to name a few. However, over the past years Voodoo Fest has notably expanded their roster to an eclectic curation of genres; electronic has undeniably crept in as a prominent one.

This year, Voodoo welcomes headliners Guns N’ Roses, Post Malone, and Beck while simultaneously featuring big electronic acts including Bassnectar, ZHU, REZZ, The Glitch Mob, Big Gigantic, and more. Newcomers disrupting the scene like WHIPPED CREAM, Elohim, Peekaboo, and k?d also grace the lineup.

GA three-day tickets start at $140 and go on sale at 10 a.m. CST June 6. See the full lineup below and purchase tickets here.

Premiere: Shae District create melodic euphoria in new EP, ‘Things We Were Raised By’

Premiere: Shae District create melodic euphoria in new EP, ‘Things We Were Raised By’DSC3736 Facebook

With the arrival of their new EP, Things We Were Raised By, Shae District execute their return to the electronic release ring toting a freshly developed sonic aesthetic that veers in a direction distinctly different from that of their previous efforts. The shift in overall sound that is perceptible on Things We Were Raised By is as much a recommencement of Shae District’s musical production as it is a redefinition of artistic identity. And as a delve into the six-track showing evinces, Things We Were Raised By is cohesive collection of individual cuts that seamlessly fade into each other, to form one fluid whole.

The EP was led by debut single, “Semsilia,” a melodic introduction to the Things We Were Raised By soundscape. An undulating, rhythmic beat sustained by bass, “Semsilia” surfaced as a buoyant number that easily lent itself to listener head bobbing. “Semsilia” appears as the third of the six EP inclusions.

Slated to release in full May 31, Things We Were Raised By opens with the cinematic mellifluousness of the aptly titled beginning song, “Intro.” The sparkling tones that characterize the gossamer sound that permeates the EP are well represented on the succeeding track, “Tangerine,” which also happens to be the most vocally oriented cut on the EP aside from the EP’s finale, “Sword and the Stone.” Listeners who delight in multi-instrumental arrangements will alight upon the johnnycola-assisted “Blossom” as an emblem of Shae District’s acute ear for interweaving multiple musical elements.

Things We Were Raised By is in homage to all of the people who’ve impacted our lives on our journey to get where we are now” said Shae District constituent, Andrew Parpart. “[The EP] is also a nod to the artists who continue to inspire us,” Parpart added, citing ODESZA, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Jai Wolf, ZHU, and Tycho as key influences.

The second half of Shae District, Debjit Das visualizes Things We Were Raised By as an electronic growing experience, particularly in the songwriting sense. “[The EP] is a transition from pure production and Doing [alone] to […] learning more about songwriting,” Das told Dancing Astronaut. Das specified closing cut, “Sword and the Stone” as the “first very personal song” to emerge from the duo’s studio.

It’s about loss and learning to live with loss, something that we both experienced deeply and on multiple occasions in 2018.

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.

Jai Wolf seamlessly weaves genres in debut LP, ‘The Cure To Loneliness’

Jai Wolf seamlessly weaves genres in debut LP, ‘The Cure To Loneliness’Jai Wolf Rukes

Jai Wolf has the panacea for feelings of forlornness: a 12-track LP, entitled The Cure To Loneliness. Jai Wolf’s first longform outing, The Cure To Loneliness is a career-defining effort that issues an extended look into the artist’s style, the specificities of Jai Wolf’s electronic aesthetic. To stream The Cure To Loneliness is to peer into Jai Wolf’s musical world, to find a lush blend of down to mid-tempo arrangements, rolling synths, pop bents, and narrative lyrics that consider life’s melancholy developments with a perceptible sense of peace.

Hardly a strictly dance-oriented showing, The Cure To Loneliness is rich in multi-genre elements. The tinny guitar that opens “Manic Pixie Dream” evokes rock, while other album inclusions flirt with indie tones. The Cure To Loneliness sees appearances from guest contributors Day Wave, Now, Now, Robokid, Dresage, and Mr Gabriel. Listeners can catch Jai Wolf live, as the musician makes his way through a number of major US cities on his tour in support of the album, The Cure to Loneliness tour.

After a 16 month hiatus, he recently came back onto the scene last year with his track “Lost” featuring Chelsea Jade. The DJ was pretty quiet

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

It’s been more than five years since the music world has seen new music from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s supergroup, Dog Blood, but that wait is finally over with “Turn Off The Lights.” Dillon Francis joins forces with lovelytheband for a, well, lovely collaboration called “Change Your Mind.” Armin van Buuren, Lucas & Steve, and Josh Cumbee deliver a feel-good number by the name of “Don’t Give Up On Me,” and Nicky Romero, DallasK, and XYLØ create a contemplative, low-key collaboration, “Sometimes.” Whethan and Bearson have crafted an effortlessly groovy “Win You Over” with SOAK, and Seven Lions and Kill The Noise take things up a notch with the formidable “The Blood.” Bassnectar reveals his Reflective Part Four EP is on its way with “Illusion,” and Kove keeps his brand of drum & bass subtle and smooth with “Echoes.” Jai Wolf and Dresage come together in “Better Apart,” and NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg make a powerful pair in “REDLIGHT.” Sam Feldt brings summer a few months early with “One Day” with ROZES and Yves V, and Zomboy brings “The Beast” with his new single. The Chainsmokers prep for their new album with “Kills You Slowly,” and Mielo releases his Anywhere But Here EP, featuring a closing song of the same title.

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
