Now one of the largest dance festivals in Asia, Djakarta will commemorate a decade of fluid progression, and electronic music lovers won’t want to miss the occasion.

These are 10 hype-building songs to listen to ahead for Moonrise Festival 2018Moonrise

Moonrise Festival 2018 is shaping out to be one of Baltimore’s most exciting events of the year. The two-day festival — held at the Pimlico Race Course – is preparing for its 5th installment, which will feature a wide and diverse range of artists, catering toward fans of almost any dance music sub-genre. Performers include Kaskade, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, JOYRYDE, Ookay, GRiZ, Illenium, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ekali, MK, and more.

In honor of the upcoming festivities, we’ve compiled a 10-track playlist that includes tunes from some of the weekend’s most anticipated acts — perfect for any pre-game or long road-trips to Baltimore.

1. Silk City (Diplo & Mark Ronson) – “Only Can Get Better”

The latest single from Diplo & Mark Ronson’s newest side project Silk City. This is definitely a collaboration attendees will hear during Diplo’s headline set at the Stellar Stage Saturday night. Ronson has since teased their second upcoming release, so maybe he’ll give fans a little taste at the festival?

2. DJ Snake & Mercer – “Let’s Get Ill”

One of DJ Snake’s hottest 2018 collaborations saw linking up with Mercer for a rapid, future house heater. Check out Snake headlining the Stellar Stage Saturday night alongside Kaskade, Diplo, Zeds Dead, and more.

3. Marshmello – “Rooftops”

Marshmello recently released his Joytime II album, which has been very well-received by the Mello Gang. “Rooftops” a groovy one from the album where the DJ/producer throws on his own 90’s punk rock-sounding vocals. He’ll take the Stellar Stage Sunday night and will likely close out the weekend.

4. SNRBN – “If I Can’t Have You” feat. Harloe

The LA-based DJ/producer, who will also be taking over the Stellar Stage on Sunday afternoon, where he will more than likely take his audience out of the racetrack an instead place them on a mental beach. His latest single “I Can’t Have You” accomplishes this feat in mere minutes.

5. Two Friends – “While We’re Dreaming” feat. Kevin Writer

We enjoy this 2017 throwback from the duo, who will be treating their guests to a heavy dose of their cheery brand of dance music.

6. Galantis – “Mama Look At Me Now”

“Mama Look At Me Now” is one of two tracks from Galantis’ latest EP release, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the mischevious Swedes’ infectiously raucous Sunday set.

7. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, Tory Lanez – “Miss You” (Akira Akira & Hikeii Remix)

This is one of the most poppin’ remixes of his hit collaboration “Miss You” with Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. Festival goers can expect to hear either the original or an assortment of remixes, yet knowing Cashmere Cat, he often has a strictly Jersey club section of the set, to which this fits perfectly. Check out his set at the Lunar Stage on Sunday.

8. Rezz & 1788-L – H E X

Rezz is blowing up the scene with dark synths and heavy beats that are nothing short of an innovative sound. Check out her latest release, which she’ll most likely use to destroy the Solar Tent atmosphere on Saturday.

9. Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, Anti-Up – “Pizza”

Anyone want pizza? No? How about after a few hours of constant movement and house beats at the Celestial Stage? Chris Lake will be headlining the house-geared stage Saturday night and will probably trap listeners into his set right as they’re deciding to leave for some pizza.

10. Eric Prydz – “Liberate” (Lane 8 Remix)

This remix for Eric Prydz’ “Liberate” is one of Lane 8’s hidden gems released back in 2014. He’s pushed out a lot of new music since then, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop showing this perfect blend of deep and melodic house some love. Check him out headlining the Celestial Stage Sunday night.

Purchase tickets via the Moonrise Festival website and if this song selection didn’t do justice, check out the festival’s 2018 Spotify playlists, which are curated by stage.

Rudimental and Major Lazer drop dance-infused music video for ‘Let Me Live’Rudimental Major Lazer Let Me Live

Rudimental and Major Lazer have released their new music video for “Let Me Live.” The feel-good, inspirational single is about controlling destiny. With the help of Anne-Marie, Mr. Eazi, and a colorful dance team, the music video is just as uplifting as the audio. Throughout the video, vibrant colors are contrasted by industrial scenes that represent society, and the discussion of controlling destiny is shown through the colors donned by all individuals in the project.

The UK singer, who previously worked on Marshmello‘s “Friends,” is shown traveling from London to South Africa. Directed by South Africa’s Chris Saunders, the video features local dance troupes from Johannesburg with additional vocals from the five-time Grammy-winning South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

Rudimental’s third album, TOAST TO OUR DIFFERENCES, comes out Sept. 7. “Let Me Live” is a featured single off their upcoming album. To celebrate, the English band invited Anne-Marie, J Hus, David Rodigan and more to join them on their weekly summer residency at Ibiza Rocks.

Phoenix’s second annual Lost Lake Festival reportedly cancelled

This post was originally published on this site

Emerging crossover festival brand Lost Lake has reportedly been cancelled ahead of the event’s second annual installment. The multi-day festival, still in its infancy, came by way of powerhouse event promoter Superfly — the organizing body behind massively successful event properties like Outside Lands and BonnarooDancing Astronaut has reached out to Lost Lake representatives for comment, though at the time of publication, no response has been received.

Superfly is expected to release an official statement on festival’s cancellation, though the cause behind shuttering Lost Lake is likely due to poor ticket sales following last year’s impressive reported turnout of over 45,000 attendees. The inaugural installment brought a well-rounded blend of talent including Chance The Rapper, ODESZA, and Major Lazer to the Valley of the Sun. While this year’s edition is no longer taking place, hopefully Superfly still plans to continue breaking into Phoenix’s largely untapped festival market in the future.

Check back for updates, the story will be updated as new information is received.

Major Lazer and Rudimental team up with Anne-Marie and Mr. Eazi on ‘Let Me Live’

This post was originally published on this site

Major Lazer cemented themselves as the deliverers of chart-topping summer tracks with their 2015 track “Lean On,” which recently hit its 1 billionth stream on Spotify. On their latest, they’ve teamed up with UK group Rudimental to deliver another summer heater, titled “Let Me Live.” Both parties have proved themselves collaborators extraordinaire — with Major Lazer working with every artist from Ariana Grande to Travis Scott to Ellie Goulding, and Rudimental with Ed Sheeran and Macklemore — and “Let Me Live” continues that legacy.

Enlisting vocals from Anne-Marie, an artist Rudimental helped launch into now full-on pop stardom, as well as Nigerian singer-songwriter Mr. Eazi, “Let Me Live” is a reggae-pop crossover track that isn’t trying to impress for radio play, but might accomplish just that with its laid-back demeanor. Also featuring vocals from the iconic South African band Ladysmith Black Mambazo“Let Me Live” is world music on a true global stage.

Major Lazer take on classic OutKast sample in new “Fire (Spotie) remix

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Random White Dude Be Everywhere. 

Diplo has been on an absolute tear lately. In the last two weeks, he’s dropped a radio-ready party cut with Lil Pump for Deadpool 2, he’s debuted an already highly acclaimed disco project dubbed Silk City with Mark Ronson, delivered a summer time jam with frequent collaborator MØ, oh… and scored the World Cup’s 2018 anthem with a comeback-primed Will Smith. But Diplo’s month-long flexing spree wouldn’t be complete without a Major Lazer giveaway, so now the trio have come through with a boisterous dancehall remix that’s perfect for Memorial Day Weekend poolside playlists.

Taking on Jus Now, Dismantle, and Busy Signal’s “Fire (Spotie)” anchored around he horn breakdown of OutKast’s seminal “SpottieOttieDopaliscious,” Major Lazer inject the uninhibited dancehall belter with an additional burst of dance floor appeal and a wild modified jungle break. The original tune, which came by way of Trinidad-meets-UK duo Jus Now and Busy Signal, who famously lended vocals to Major Lazer’s groundbreaking “Watch Out For This,” is now getting a full circle remix from Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire, as the Mad Decent helmer just continues to be the summer’s gift that keeps on giving.
