Mija announces new single coming Nov. 30, EP to follow

This post was originally published on this site

Since releasing her four-track Time Stops soundtrack in June, producer Mija has been fairly quiet on the music front.

On Nov. 17, however, she revealed that she’s been hard at work on an EP. The first track of the forthcoming collection, “Bad for U” featuring vocalist Kelli Schaefer, is slated to come out on Nov. 30.

“This song runs deep in both of our hearts and we can’t wait to share it with U,” she says in the tweet.

The EP as a whole doesn’t have a release date yet, but hopefully we can expect to see it revealed by the end of the year.

Mija doesn’t give a fk about a genre.

In fact, her innate structure itself shines in her all-encompassing M.O. Mija is currently in the midst of taking her Fk A Genre tour far and wide and perfectly encapsulating its celebratory ethos was her Dirtybird Campout takeover. During the set, Mija collaborated with friends Ryan Forever, Ardalan, Mark Starr, and Deux Yeux.

Between Ardalan’s gritty house sound, to Mark Starr’s future Bay Area heat, or Deux Yeux’s cutting edge bass tones, Fk A Genre proved a feverish fusion all the birds flocked towards.

Now, fans can relish in her Bass Lodge takeover via her off-kilter two-hour set, and look forward to another offering of greatness when Mija performs at the East Coast Campout which takes place February 2-4 in St. Cloud Florida.

Mija releases the 8-bit inspired soundtrack to her forthcoming film, ‘Time Stops’

This post was originally published on this site

Amber Giles, better known as Mija, is slated to release a short animated film this upcoming fall in collaboration with David Dutton of 8-bit cinema, who describes the creative process as “making a full on point-n-click adventure game”. The self- funded, self-written project has been titled Time Stops, and is accompanied by a soundtrack of the same name.

Yesterday, June 6, Mija released the soundtrack’s first single, “time stops when i’m with u,” through the Adult Swim singles program, with the rest of the soundtrack set to be released on her own Never B Alone imprint. “time stops when i’m with u” is a bubbly glitch hop anthem that, if fans were to guess, captures the temperament of Mija’s animated film, given her spritely demeanor.

The full EP, which is now available, continues the 8-bit atmospheric trend throughout the course of the following three songs, “that one time,” “never b alone,” and “d!e.” Stream the entirety of the Time Stops soundtrack below ahead of the film’s October release.

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.

Mija Showcases Her Skill With First Solo Production “Secrets” [LISTEN]

Despite having built her name with several remixes, Mija finally releases her own original production.

Mija releases new heavy track featuring Tegan & Sara

This post was originally published on this site

Since Mija’s break out in 2014, the pioneering DJ and producer has toured the world, headlined some of the biggest festivals, and proved herself an equal to her fellow male counterparts with collaborations and remixes that have established her as a force in the industry. Driven by the mantra of ‘fk genres,’ Mija has finally released her third single, ‘Secrets’ featuring the smooth angelic voices of the Grammy-nominated indie pop duo, Tegan and Sara. The genre-bending track draws influence from Netsky and Subfocus, and takes the listener on a hard-hitting drum and bass adventure. The quick drums are balanced with deep industrial sounds and heavy LFOs to keep the listener eager and ready for what comes next. Lucky for the old-school bassheads out there, the second drop switches into half-time and brings us all back to the reigning days of heavy dubstep. ‘Secrets’ is surely a turn away from Mija’s future bass song ‘Better’ with Vindata, or ‘Crank It,’ her deep house single with Lil Jon and Ghastly. But after taking a listen, it’s a definite turn for the best as Mija flexes her versatility as a producer and gives us a glimpse of her bass-heavy side.

Mija is happy to save her fans a few bucks, and the song is available for free download below:

Mija Just Released Her Very First Solo Original Track, “Secrets”

This post was originally published on this site

Even though Mija has been an active DJ/producer for a while now, it’s only now that she’s put out her first solo original entitled “Secrets.” Past tracks of hers have always been collabs or remixes, but it could be said that “Secrets” is the first genuine Mija track we’ve ever gotten.

Digging into the legacy of drum & bass, as Mija was influenced by the likes of Sub Focus and Netsky, the track still retains Mija’s unique aesthetic among the high-pitched vocals and bubbly synths. The track samples Tegan & Sara’s “Boyfriend,” though the vocals were only meant to be a temporary placeholder until original vocals were found. As the instrumental progressed, the sample stuck and Tegan & Sara allowed her to use it.
