We Asked Our Followers About Martin Garrix’s New Track & They Don’t Know What To Think

This post was originally published on this site

Martin Garrix released his new song “Scared To Be Lonely,” featuring Dua Lipa, late Thursday night. With sweltering synths and emotional vocals from Dua Lipa, the song became an instant favorite. However, we wondered how fans would like it compared to his previous hit with Bebe Rexha, “In The Name Of Love.”

In a Twitter poll beginning Jan 26, we asked if “Scared To Be Lonely” was better than “In The Name Of Love”? Surprisingly, 35% of voters responded “Can’t Decide,” while 32% responded yes and 33% responded no.

Clearly, there are a lot of mixed feelings about his new track – but if there’s one that can’t be denied, it’s that it’s still really, really good. Listen once again below:

Flume Wins Triple J’s Hottest 100 Of 2016 Poll With “Never Be Like You”

This post was originally published on this site

It’s no secret that Flume is Australia’s golden child in EDM (let alone most of music). With an album in 2016 that swept the ARIAs and a worldwide tour that stunned at every moment, it’s also no surprise that one of Flume’s tracks topped the annual Hottest 100 poll from triple j.

“Never Be Like You” was voted as the #1 track of 2016 among the 2,255,110 voters who participated in the poll. It beat out “Love$sick” ft. A$AP Rocky by Mura Masa, “Genghis Khan” by Miike Snow, and even another couple of Flume songs.

Your EDM Readers Have Spoken, Zedd’s “Let Me Love You” Remix Is No. 1

This post was originally published on this site

On Saturday, we asked our readers which of the four “Let Me Love You” remixes they think represent the best take on DJ Snake and Justin Bieber‘s original track. Receiving treatment from the likes of Marshmello, Tiësto, Don Diablo and Zedd, the track has represented one of the most defining sounds in the EDM/pop crossover realm this year. Now, with all four of its official remixes out, our readers have ranked them from best to worst.

With over 1,100 votes in total, the Twitter poll was filled by a whopping 50% with votes for Zedd. His remix saw the original’s lyrics and more laid back vibe, and raised it to a completely new level of energy and abstract sound design.

Coming in at second place was Marshmello with 26% of the vote. Featuring his usual combination of squeaky vocal chops and a buzzing bass synth, its lack of unique character prevented it from taking the spot away from Zedd’s truly experimental and powerful remix. Don Diablo’s received 15% of the vote, and Tiësto’s only earned 9%.

Check out all four the “Let Me Love You” remixes below, and join us in tipping our hats to Zedd for one fantastic flip!

DJs React To This Year’s New DJ Mag’s Top 100 Rankings

This post was originally published on this site

Another year of DJ Mag’s Top 100 has come and gone, and every time all it seems to do is get the dance community all kinds of hot and bothered, and not in a good way.

Everyone from Dillon Francis to Eric Prydz had something to say about the results, with most of the commentary pertaining to the list being a joke. But there were still a few who took the time to congratulate Mr. Martin Garrix on a well earned #1 title.

No one is upset at Martin Garrix for winning the top spot and claiming the title of youngest #1 DJ ever; most of the hate is directed towards how much emphasis is placed on these relatively meaningless rankings. 3LAU made a great statement yesterday about the ranking’s relevance to booking fees, and how the list doesn’t directly affect how fans enjoy an artist’s music. And as such, here are the less satisfied reactions:

Here Are Your Bottom 100 DJs For 2016!

This post was originally published on this site

While every year we eagerly await the results of the DJ Mag Top 100, there’s another rival list that gives us just as much enjoyment, if not more. That’s right! It’s time for the Bottom 100 DJs list!! Another year and another list, this grouping of DJs have been voted as the worst in the scene.

Last year’s list featured David Guetta, Paris Hilton, Deadmau5, Vinai, Hardwell and more in the top 10 – of course, the list isn’t totally serious. After all, Deadmau5’s cat, Professor Meowingtons, ranked at #5 and “My Penis” was ranked the #12 worst DJ.

Check out who made the list this year below!

10. Deadmau5
9. Hardwell
8. Martin Jensen
7. Paris Hilton
6. Alok
5. DVBBS
4. VINAI
3. KSHMR
2. David Guetta

Who Do You Think Will Be On The DJ Mag Top 100 This Year? [POLL]

This post was originally published on this site

With the official DJ Mag Top 100 announcement looming overhead this coming Wednesday, we wanted to ask our own readers… who do you think is the top DJ? Sure, it’s an entirely subjective and mostly meaningless list, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t curious.

Last year’s ranking announcement was met with harsh derision, not least of all from us, but the EDM landscape has changed a lot over this past year.

There haven’t seemed to be as many campaigns for the Top 100 this year as in previous years, and a lot of DJs have begun to move away from flavor-of-the-month, add-this-to-your-DJ-set tracks in favor of more composed and song-like releases – just look at Ookay’s latest EP.

While the Top 10-20 will likely see the same names as previous years, though rearranged and maybe with some new additions (i.e. The Chainsmokers), the rest of the list is completely up for debate. Throw in your own two cents below, and if you don’t see your favorite DJ’s name on the list, feel free to add it yourself by scrolling to the bottom.
