Tom Morello has released his first-ever solo album under his own name, entitled The Atlas Underground. As an undisputed rock icon and top guitarist, Morello has led bands like Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and now Prophets of Rage to success through making music that centers around raw, real emotion. Now, the Guitar Hero III boss has made it his mission to join together the energy behind rock music together with modern electronic dance music through a collaborative, focused album.

Enlisting artists from the electronic world that inspire him, Morello has created an album that bridges a gap between a generation of those who grew up when rock music was king, and those who have been raised at the height of electronic music’s success. For the latter, Morello explained in conversation with Zane Lowe at his Los Angeles stop of The Atlas Underground Experience that his intention with this album is to “inflict” the energy of guitars onto the next generation, inspiring future rockstars along the way. Working with stand-out artists like Knife Party, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Steve Aoki and K.Flay, Morello has created something true to himself in its motivations in social justice. Not only that, but the music succeeds at its intention to make us both rock out and dance.

Steve Aoki stays consistent, steadily unleashing new heat for his fans, most recently on a new collaboration with TWIIG, connecting on a single titled “Hoovela.” The new track perfectly combines the Dim Mak head’s hardstyle framework with Croatian producer TWIIG’s European big room roots. The result is an absolute battering ram that’s designed to level festival crowds.

Driven by larger-than-life horns and shuffle-friendly breaks, perfect for the weekend to come. TWIIG‘s is coming off of a collaboration with big room’s undisputed champ Hardwell, and now he’s lined up with another venerated electronic force for another certified festival weapon. Meanwhile, Aoki has kept characteristically busy, from launching a new pizza business to marquee collaborations with Nicky Romero and clothing label BAPE. Recently, the “Lie To Me” producer even lit the beacon to collaborate with Elon Musk, stating he just needs “ideas, creative flow, and energy.”

Steve Aoki wants to collaborate with Elon Musk

Steve Aoki wants to collaborate with Elon MuskSteve Aoki Jump

Elon Musk has long been poised behind the driver’s wheel of Tesla Inc., but if he ever wanted to switch gears to the music industry, Steve Aoki would be more than happy to assist. Aoki declared Musk his next collaborator of choice, if he were to have his pick of in-studio company, that is. “I would love to collaborate with Elon Musk,” Aoki said during his recent appearance on BuzzFeed‘s AM to DM live morning show. “At the end of the day… I just need like, ideas, creative flow, energy, and then kind of vibe off that.”

Aoki is no one-trick pony. The Dim Mak head manages a host of business projects outside the music and entertainment industries, including fashion ventures that have led him to collaborate on merch with BAPE and to show a men’s streetwear collection during New York Fashion Week in 2017. While a bakery might have appeared a more apt fit for Aoki’s live tradition of caking his audience members, the versatile DJ additionally launched a pizza restaurant by the name of “Pizzaoki” in July 2018, enabling Aoki fans to satiate their savory cravings. Now that Musk has stepped down as the chairman of Tesla holdings, the automotive expert just might have time to apply his creative “drive” to a more musically oriented endeavor.

Steve Aoki does not sleep. Proven fact. He’s like a shark. I have no idea if sharks actually sleep or not. But, for all intensive purposes, they don’t. Don’t @ me. Aoki has been touring the world for as long as any of us can remember, often times playing multiple shows a night. His music

Ultra releases rousing official 20th anniversary recapUltra Recap 1

Nearly six months after celebrating its landmark 20th anniversary, Ultra Miami has unveiled its exultant recap of the historic weekend surely no attendee has forgotten (at least not deliberately). The short picture boasts its seemingly endless stream of EDM hall of famers, including Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Oliver Heldens, and Dash Berlin: a mere fraction of the 2018 roster.

Inundated by glistening bikini bods, a thundering mass of pyrotechnics, and a kaleidoscopic sea of swirling artist emblems, the video may appear hyperbolic, albeit, only to those who have never had the chance to attend. The recap illustrates the round-the-clock celebratory nature of the fest, shifting from day to night with no loss of vigor, mirroring that of the perpetually enthused, perma-smile patrons. Additionally, those Ultra attendees brandish not only a full spectrum of artist memorabilia, but national flags from all ends of the universe, solidifying the festival’s overwhelming scope of attraction. Even Will Smith can be seen taking the sparkling city up on his eternal “Welcome To Miami.”

David Guetta’s double-sided ‘7’ is a timely portrait of dance music, spanning a voluminous 27 tracks [Review]

There often comes a time in great artists’ careers when they have acquired a certain level of devoutness from fans that allows them to truly feel free from the confines of an appealing facade or obligation to appease. Three decades into his into his artistic journey, David Guetta surpassed that milestone many musical epochs ago. Yet, with his Big Beat-housed, double-sided 7 album, Guetta endeavors to show the world there is uncharted sonic terrain worthy of the trek.

The two-disc album is certainly indicative of the different hats Guetta has worn over the years, most broadly as a ubiquitous dance-pop deity and more recently, the reveal of less radio-ready stylings from his alter-ego, Jack Back. Disc-one is Guetta as the world knows him — in all his prophesied pop eminence. Riddled with weighty collaboration, the first side of the venerated French powerhouse’s new studio work features a slew of larger-than-life joint efforts, including his previously released, immaculately sung “Flames” with Sia, a reunion preceded by their sublimely successful 2011 smash, “Titanium.” Guetta seems to cover all his streamability bases in this first portion, enlisting equally exalted dance pop sharks like Justin Bieber, Nicki MinajMartin Garrix on “Like I Do” and the Steve Aoki-assisted “Motto.” Guetta casts a wide net of appeal, following commercial counterparts like Major Lazer in sprinkling in some ever-so-timely Afro-pop, bolstered by the South African Black Coffee, on “Drive.”

Guetta’s recently unraveled side-project, Jack Back, drives home disc-two, which is comprised of groove-heavy, largely atmospheric tech-house. With winding, instrumental tracks like “Overtone” and “Afterglow,” it stands as an ambivalence-inducing paradox. On one hand, it represents the mainstream dance circuit’s acceptance of a more avant-garde product, of the scene’s most prominent figures’ willingness to deliver a raw, less-calculated extension of themselves. On the other — succeeding fellow icons like Calvin Harris, who recently announced he’d be receding back to his club-adept roots — this return to form can easily be construed as an overdue attempt to delineate oneself from the improbably saturated, monotonous sea of over-compressed bass drops. Tech-house, following progressive, future bass, and future house, takes its place among one of the most recent sub-genre crazes. The resurgence has been actualized by the likes of longtime devotees like Claude VonStroke, Carl Cox, and Green Velvet, who have been championing the jazzy, instrumental sound for decades. David Guetta plants his flag on side two. He’s earned the status to return to a less commercially viable aesthetic. What’s more, fans deserve something potentially more stimulating from such high-held superstars. Our palates are savvier than they were in 2010, and radio-ready blockbusters can only take an artist so far, and Guetta uses the back half of the gatefold to address that shift.

Yes, two years in the making, is Guetta’s seventh studio album. But the French DJ/producer wears the number as a badge of continuity.

7 is a magical number and represents a full cycle to me. When you’re just starting out as an artist you go step by step and it’s only positive energy; passion, love, challenges,” says Guetta. “…This is why ‘7’ is a perfect name to me, because I feel like I’m going back to my original energy which can be heard in this album.”

Existential turmoil aside, whether Guetta has been biding his time to showcase this doubtlessly more nuanced side of his artistic repertoire or he simply seized a timely opportunity to reinvent himself, performs as a spacious snapshot of contemporary dance music.

Steve Aoki’s pizza delivery business set for rapid expansion

Steve Aoki’s pizza delivery business set for rapid expansionSteve Aoki Pizzaoki Epansion

For those who prefer their pizza with a dose of dance music, there’s good news: Steve Aoki‘s pizza delivery service Pizzaoki is coming to a city near you sooner rather than later. After the business’s launch in Los Angeles this past July, the venture is already profitable. Fans can expect Aoki-approved pies in 15 to 20 Pizzaoki locations around the country by the end of 2019. Additional California joints and landings in Boston, Miami, New York and Chicago are all in the works, with European openings on the horizon as well. The restaurant is currently delivery-only through both UberEats and Postmates services.

The globetrotting EDM star and Dim Mak label boss has maintained a packed schedule of high energy shows and cake-throwing — but still manages to find the time for a surprising array of food-related side ventures. Aoki has been investing in the restaurant space since 2007, with six businesses under his umbrella. Don’t think the ventures are all about money-making for the hit-maker, though. His passion is immediately apparent in a recent Forbes interview:

“The Aoiki DNA is in there, the sauce we use is Mama Aoki’s special sauce. In fact, each pizza corresponds to different song titles and represents an emotional response of what the pizza should deliver to you. We’ve got more pizzas that we’re creating too for more songs and outing the character of the song in the pizza, the energy, the hotness or whatever.”
