Slushii Deletes All Tweets from His Account, Leaves Just One

This post was originally published on this site

Slushii has been on freaking fire lately. The artist who was hoisted to fame with the help of Marshmello has made a name for himself with savage remixes and hypnotic originals. His latest release, a “dubfire VIP” of his own remix of Alan Walker was incredible. It seems like the artist was on top of

Life In Color Surpasses Expectations for 10th Anniversary [Event Review]

This post was originally published on this site

By now, it would be expected that the novelty of getting blasted with streaks of pink, blue, and green would be a tad bit irritating. After all, paint parties have been around before Life In Color came to be.

What started as over-the-top college parties at Florida State University over a decade ago evolved into one of Miami’s most unique series of concerts in the last five years. From massive expansions across South Florida, touring across the country, and even a Guinness World Record for “most people covered in paint at one time,” the people behind Life In Color reimagined their paint parties into a festival experience that combines massive themes with enormous musical performances. And this year was no different.

Much like Ultra Music Festival, Life In Color’s flagship is in Miami, where prior installments packed enormous crowds by the Hard Rock Stadium. This year, however, the music festival made a venue change, trading the expansive parking lot of the Miami Dolphins’ football arena for the intimate combination of Mana Wynwood and the abandoned RC Cola Plant. At first, I came to believe that this is a continuance of the downsizing of Life In Color’s concerting production as Wynwood is a tight neighborhood. After Life In Color 2014 spread its stay for a full weekend of musical messes, LIC 2016 returned to a single-day music festival criteria while still bringing a fierce lineup of commercial house, trap, dubstep, and hip-hop.

To my surprise, the switch made Life In Color feel larger than ever as it sat between large murals of street art and chic restaurants.

Coming into the venue, the main “Sector X” stage featured opening acts Nitti Gritti and Bonnie X Clyde whose musical careers kickstarted from Wynwood Fear Factory and Life In Color 2016 respectively. Between new music, both acts have unreleased and tenacious bangers shaping 2017, their acts set the tone for the incoming performances on the main stage and for the nearby “Rare Stage” which took the form of a circus tent. It was over here that equally bass-heavy performances from Fresko, Doctor P, and Ookay transitioned from the dusk and into the evening. I stayed here for quite some time before returning to Sector X.

In between both stages where a vast array of food trucks and stands offering funnel cakes, gyros, salads, and more. Yet, most of these places began to run out of food faster than they could make new food for future customers. I found that around the time that Marshmello and Desiigner were set to perform (between 9p.m. – 11p.m.), the lines were too long to properly serve anyone and the food being served was underwhelming in comparison to their relatively high prices. This problem struck the hardest for the main food stands that supposedly offered hot dogs, gyros, and Philly cheese steaks because all of these options disappeared by the time Mija was finished with her performance. This came as such a shock to me as previous installments were able have had less food truck options while still having less issues with serving the fan base.

As the evening began to gear up for the headliners, it became abundantly clear that Young Thug was nowhere to be found on the lineup when he was apart of the promotional lineup for the event. However, after seeing his recent antics in not showing up for his own music video shoot, I think this was a little outside of the hands of Life In Color. Meanwhile, every other headliner delivered terrific sets from the melodic dubstep powerhouses such as Seven Lions and Illenium to the electro house bangers coming from the sets of Mija and Tritonal. The night was topped off with performances from Diplo and Carnage who dropped trap, dubstep, and moombahton tracks to send off the 10th Anniversary of Life In Color with flying colors.

Even though there were hiccups with the food provided for guests and one headliner was unable to make an appearance, Life In Color blew my expectations. I went in believing that the transition to Wynwood (which usually hosts underground concerts) would be particularly arduous as it was about to host a relatively commercial music festival. But seeing the success of Wynwood Fear Factory last Halloween and LIC’s using the size of two venues to host the whole event, Life In Color established another successful show filled with head-banging EDM and the most tolerant body paint to be splashed on the faces of its fans.

Marshmello’s “Alone” And Jigglypuff’s Song Fit Perfectly Together

This post was originally published on this site

File this under “things we didn’t think we’d see today,” but it turns out that Marshmello’s “Alone” and Jigglypuff’s hypnosis song fit strangely well together.

Discovered by Danny Trashock, when layered over each other, the two follow the same basic chord progression and, you could even say, sound quite nice together. All the respect in the world to Marshmello for “Alone,” but sometimes your songs end up being the same chord progression as a song sung by a Pokemon… shit happens.

Check it out below, and give Danny a like.

Opinion: Famous DJs Using Social Media Bots Weakens Relationships With Real Fans

This post was originally published on this site

As an average music fan, receiving the opportunity to interact with your heroes can be one of the most joyous and rewarding things to happen. Whether meeting them after a show, receiving a hand-written letter or posing for a quick photo, the interactions come as small moments for the artists to give back to fans and for listeners to show them how much their music has affected them.

In this new day and age of social media, however, the easiest and most effective way to communicate with your favorite artists comes through tweets, Instagram tags and Facebook statuses. When your short message receives a favorite, repost or comment, it can garner a similar feeling of excitement among fans who would never get the chance to speak with their idols otherwise. When this type of interaction is traded to an automated response system, however, the magic is sorely lost.

The practice of employing Twitter and Instagram bots has become very common within the EDM sphere, with DJs like Jauz, Marshmello, Flosstradamus and Dada Life contributing only a small portion to the bot pool. In exchange for an automatic service that instantly likes, favorites and even comments on posts with keywords, tags or references, these accounts can see a boost in followage and interaction, albeit a very minimal one.

By scrolling through the often late-night likes of these DJs’ popular social media accounts, very strange and sometimes illicit posts from obscure users can be found with a custom Marshmello comment or a like from Breath Carolina.

Whether it’s a blurry photo of food, an irrelevant inspirational quote, or simply a post with the correct EDM-related hashtag, you can bet that these DJs’ bots will find it and show it some love.

Other than coming off as creepy, the bot-using practice is effective in removing a good portion of the unique and special substance of a real fan-to-artist interaction. Even though these artists retain access to the accounts, and can post real likes and comments at their leisure, the addition of endlessly weird favorites on posts that have nothing to do with themselves or EDM only create a thicker barrier between them and their listeners.

Have a look at some of the strangest bot interactions from the DJs listed above.

Marshmello, RL Grime, and more to join Ric Flair at Indy 500 Snake Pit 2017

This post was originally published on this site

The Indy 500 has rightfully earned its designation as one of the country’s greatest sports spectacles. For some, however,  the 200 laps around Indianapolis Motor Speedway play second fiddle to the entertainment that happens within the track’s inner circle at the legendary Snake Pit. Originally established in the 1970s, the Snake Pit has established a raucous reputation. Though the debauched nature of the attraction has died down somewhat in recent years, the party certainly hasn’t.

This year’s lineup promises to fall right in line with the Snake Pit’s classic notoriety. Marshmello and Zedd will assume headlining duties at the May 28 event, with additional firepower coming from RL Grime, Action Bronson, and Adventure Club. Though, perhaps the greatest draw on an already impressive roster is this year’s emcee, none other than wrestling icon Ric Flair.
