Philly native 5 & A Dime, as the reigning DDR-Extreme (8th Mix) World Champion, has created a revolutionary technology that allows him to create a live mashup while doing what he does best: dancing on launchpads. The mashup includes tracks by The Chainsmokers, Cashmere Cat, Skrillex, La Roux and more. 5 & A Dime’s explanation of the technology is as follows:
“This project is a hybrid between a Launchpad and DDR pads connected via MIDI into Ableton triggering several drum racks worth of samples. It then sends a visual MIDI signal to the 3D projection 1:1 scale model behind me…The 3D projection technology is the same that artists like Excision and Eric Prydz use during their shows.”

The Chainsmokers released their second single of 2018, and continue their new trend skewing from the sound that led to their momentous rise.
“You Owe Me” is a part of the now two-sided single, Sick Boy…You Owe Me, and it’s the duo’s safest shift into instrumental heavy, post-EDM to date.
The new track sees that the duo’s doubling down on the pop-punk, Twenty One Pilots operative that was explored on “Sick Boy,” but in a form that’s significantly lacking in comparison.
Though the vaguely EDM-reminiscent track is not entirely uninspired, and listeners can relish in its sparse synth lines and subdued guitar injections, “You Owe Me’s” official video — essentially an uber cliche Twilight v. Dexter situation — isn’t doing them any such favors.
Now I know what y’all are thinking. This new release from The Chainsmokers is going to get panned in this article as it is the current trend these days. That being said while I was not the biggest fan of ‘Sick Boy’, there is quite a bit that the guys nailed down in ‘You Owe

Centered around the hook “walk into the club like everyone hates me,” the confessional ID, presumably titled “Everybody Hates Me,” foreshadows what very well sounds like another high-grossing hit for The Chainsmokers pending its official release.
After gaining over a million views on his remix of The Chainsmokers’ song, ‘Young’, Owen Norton once again impressed his melodic vibe on another Chainsmokers release. With big chords, impactful drums, and an infectious vocal arrangement, Owen puts a future bass twist on The Chainsmokers’ acoustic ballad, ‘Sick Boy’. Although he is only 18 years old,
Currently touring Europe, The Chainsmokers have continued to experiment with their new “band” sound. At a recent show in Prague, the duo played all of the recent hits including the most recent pop track “Sick Boy”. In addition to the latest hits, they have been experimenting new songs. Most notably, “Everybody Hates Me” (ID). The
