Arizona’s “Biggest New Year’s Eve Experience” also released single day lineups and tickets with the announcement of phase two. Above & Beyond, REZZPorter Robinson, San Holo, Skrillex and more will perform on December 30. 4B, Eric Prydz, Paz, Green

Relentless Beats have made fans aware of their philanthropy initiative with Surreal, a fundraising platform that offers fans to experience once-in-a-lifetime opportunities with artists.

The winner of each category will also receive free airfare, VIP tickets, free hotel accommodations, and, of course, a wild story to take home with them. All the proceeds from the campaign will go to Childhelp, a national nonprofit organization with the purpose to meet the physical, spiritual, educational, and emotional needs of abused, maltreated, at-risk kids. The contest runs through December 18, and given the size of the festival and artists performing, the benefits of the campaign have to potential to mirror the elation that is sure to be experienced for the festival-goers at Decadence.

Moe Shalazi to begin own management firm following departure from Red Light

Moe Shalazi to begin own management firm following departure from Red LightMarshmello Teen Vogue Playlist 2018 Billboard 1548

Red Light management took a loss this November in Moe Shalazi, who’s officially departing the firm to begin his own management company. Shalazi, who’s notably cultivated the careers of megastars like JAUZ, Marshmello, Ghastly, and more, will be taking all of his clients with him on his new venture. Both him and Red Light have yet to release official statements on their separation.

Shalazi certainly has the skillset to create a powerhouse agency on his own. Since helping Marshmello break into the EDM scene in 2015, he’s since helped him become one of the most followed crossover stars with $44 million in earnings this year alone, and a YouTube channel that’s now the platforms 36th most-followed. Moe got his start at a young age, making the leap from event promotion in his early twenties to artist management in 2014. Prior to his work with Marshmello, his first major breakthrough client had been JAUZ, who helped catalyze his move to Red Light Management.

Marshmello Teases New Collaboration With Up And Coming Rapper Roddy Ricch

This post was originally published on this site

Marshmello has been unusually quiet in terms of releases recently. While the world of dance music was spoiled in 2018 by releases from Marshmello on a weekly basis, it seems the masked man has been busy touring and producing new music over the last few months. Today, Marshmello took to social media to tease a

For a personification of the phrase “strike while the iron is hot,” look no further than Marshmello. Dance music’s saccharine song spinner graced the cover of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 issue just days ago — a career milestone that plays out across newsstands — while Marshmello’s latest single, “Happier,” continues its cozy reign on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While Marshmello could certainly revel in present success, the producer is instead training his eye on what comes next, and what Marshmello’s ensuing move entails is a single with ascending rapper Roddy Ricch.

Marshmello has experimented with the electronic/hip-hop hybrid on previous releases like the Logic-assisted “Everyday” and the posthumous Lil Peep collaboration, “Spotlight.” The electronic/hip-hop hybrid is a stylization for which Marshmello evidently has a penchant, and while the helmeted artist has yet to reveal a formal release date for the forthcoming single, it’s clear from the preview that the track will arrive as an idiosyncratic and forward-thinking take on modern electronic and rap constructions.

Just three years ago, Marshmello was dropping his first original tracks on SoundCloud. Today, he adorns the cover of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 issue. Ornamented and clad in a white suit, his $55,000 helmet smilies with ambiguous benevolence.

The smile is well-earned. Over the past two years, that head raked in $44 million. Marshmello now has a six-figure performance fee, a lucrative top YouTube channel, several top-chart singles with some of the biggest labels biggest stars – though, he is yet to sign with any of the industry goliaths. According to Forbes, his manager Moe Shalizi says the 26-year-old is due to make $50 million in the upcoming year.

Marshmello’s success is a candid indication of the power of branding. The mystic of the anonymity his helmet has generated paired with his natural gift of creating songs that surpass genre allow Marshmello to appeal to a pop audience on a global scale. His momentum is unprecedented, and still, the public doesn’t know the man’s face. What they see in his air-conditioned helmet is altruism; permission to have fun, the opportunity to listen, and to dance.
