On the heels of another successful June edition, Splash House just dropped a huge lineup for August. Across three days and three resorts, DJs from multiple facets of dance music will provide an exquisite summer soundtrack.
Topping the bill are Dirtybird boss Claude VonStroke, symphonic house maestro Lane 8, and a special DJ set from Toro y Moi, among others. Some standouts from the rest of the roster are the Eric Prydz prodigy Cristoph and Pat Lok who will surely deliver a set full of diverse vibes.
As always, the party continues into the night all three days at the Palm Springs Air Museum with Hot Since 82, Mark Knight, and Walker & Royce slated to headline throughout the weekend. Check the full August lineup for Splash House below.
Sometimes, Ellen DeGeneres clearly books musical guests on her daytime talk show because they’re super-famous and they’ll get a lot of attention. But sometimes, she books them because she’s clearly into their music and she wants to have them on her show. (And sometimes, I’m sure, it’s some combination of the two.) Today, on a … More »
Flying Lotus has unequivocally been one of the most diverse and prolific producers of the past decade. His range has known no bounds. From the hip-hop interludes between late-night Adult Swim
The video, directed by the You’re Dead! producer and David Firth, lies the same realm of something one might find playing on an old TV in the Museum of Modern Art. In the new visual, David Lynch’s face twists and his eyes burn with fire as he tells a story from the mouth of a wolf in a wheelchair. His story is told to children adorned in fur. The score to this short film is in line with the visuals, it scratches and itches, it evokes an inalienable fear. The fear is that of the end or the impending notion of an apocalypse, which is a theme Flylo hasn’t been shy about in his previous works.
“I’d been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place. I’d always had this thematic idea in mind—a lingering concept about fire, an eternal flame sitting on a hill. Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people would go on dates there and some people would burn love letters in the fire,” says Ellison in a press statement.
Mortality and humanity have been themes in his work for many years and despite their subtle nature have drawn realists, dreamers, and optimistic nihilists towards his music and message in droves.
Though this preview could be described as “disturbing”FlyLo’s upcoming

Do LaB festival producers present a stacked lineup for this year’s Lightning in a Bottle music festival, featuring Disclosure, Santigold, Gramatik, Toro y Moi, Big Gigantic, Elohim, and Flying Lotus‘ 3D concert experience. Artists taking over the beloved Woogie stage include Lane 8, DJ Koze, Damian Lazarus, Lutrell, Shiba San, Recondite live, and more. Bass heads will reunite at the low end-heavy thunder stage with sub-booming performances from G Jones, 1788-L, CloZee, EPROM and Alix Perez’s SHADES project, the funk bass stylings of OPIUO, and more.
For the past five years, the festival took place at San Antonio Reservoir Recreation Area in Bradley, California; and the last two years were met tragically with the death of a festival attendee at each. Now, the festival has moved to a new venue at Buena Vista Lake in Central California, with lush, green pastures, a shaded tree line, and accessible shoreline that’s sure to bring festival-goers in full force.
Tickets are currently on sale for Lightning in a Bottle 2019. Purchase them here.

Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
Just days after the release of their thrilling mega-collab, Seven Lions, SLANDER, and Dabin have revealed an acoustic version of “First Time.” Nora En Pure brings smooth sonic goodness in her new single, “We Found Love” with Ashibah, and Canada’s Grandtheft turns up the intensity with his latest, “Bags.” Italian duo VINAI are ready to hit main stages in 2019 with their festival heater, “WILD,” with Fatman Scoop. As part of his new The Demented EP, Sullivan King teams up with Grabbitz for a formidable dubstep number, “Show Stopper.” NERVO continue to dominate the space between pop and dance music with their newest single, “Habit,” and The Aston Shuffle and Fabich pump out an extended mix of “Stay.” Dezza floods listeners’ ears with the gorgeous “Toadaso,” and FETISH cooks up an emotive deep house remix of Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina’s iconic “Stereo Love.”
The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).
Toro Y Moi is about to release a new album called Outer Peace. It doesn’t come out until the end of the week, but you can already stream it in full here. And today, Toro Y Moi mastermind Chaz Bear, formerly known as Chazwick Bundick, stopped by SiriusXMU to record a live in-studio … More »
Toro Y Moi mastermind Chaz Bundick has had a fascinating, fluid career. In the decade-or-so that he’s been in the public eye, Bundick has moved among different musical worlds: Fractured bedroom-pop, streamlined but idiosyncratic dance music, mutant R&B, fuzzed-up power pop. He always sounds like himself, but he draws on different sources every time, and … More »
