Thousands evacuated from Fresh Island Festival in Croatia due to forest firesFresh Festival

Local forest fires brought Croatia’s Fresh Island Festival to a halt Tuesday morning, as thousands of attendees were forced to evacuate. The cause of the fire is still unclear, though local officials have confirmed the blaze began in a pine forest just a few miles from the beachfront festival on Pag, a northern island along the Adriatic Sea. No injuries have been reported.

Three firefighting planes were dispatched to extinguish the fire, which temporarily consumed nearby roads. Ante Dabo, mayor of the nearby town Novalja, told national radio that nobody had been injured and that the fire was under control.

The hip-hop and R&B event was forced to cancel the headlining set of rapper Tyga, but has announced via their Facebook that the festival would re-open its doors Tuesday afternoon.

Lunar Lunes: Alesso concocts a ‘Sad Song,’ DJ Snake taps J. Balvin & Tyga + more1fDWSnUZemEFnWa99VvYziA

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. 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.

Alesso links with TINI for a mellow summer tune, “Sad Song,” and Botnek ramps up the intensity on “Jiffy.” Haywyre takes on Martin Garrix’s “Summer Days” in a delightful, piano-infused remix, and DJ Snake taps J. Balvin and Tyga for the feel-good “Loco Contigo.” Sonny Fodera’s crafted a remix of Dom Dolla’s “Take It,” and Merk & Kremont bring the heat on “KIDS.” Conro takes to Monstercat for a new original, “All I Want,” and Uproot Andy offers a spicy remix of Sofi Tukker and Bomba Estero’s “Playa Grande.” SYN brings the bass on “Danger,” and Pleasurekraft doesn’t hold back on a rework of Adam Beyer, Layton Giordani, and Green Velvet’s “Space Date.” Ephixa and Heartful have delivered some synthwave goodness on “Sundance,” and Justin Caruso continues his slew of edits with a new combo of Brohug vs. Valentino Khan, “DatDatDat.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

DJ Snake delivers saucy multilingual new single, ‘Loco Contigo,’ with J. Balvin and Tyga

DJ Snake delivers saucy multilingual new single, ‘Loco Contigo,’ with J. Balvin and TygaDj Snake

The commercial success of “Taki Taki” considered, DJ Snake’s choice to keep the Latin flair sauntering forth seems a tactful one. “Taki Taki,” the sizzling smash that recruited Ozuna, Selena Gomez, and hip-hop’s punchiest performer of late, Cardi B, for features, set up shop at the top of Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart for 14 weeks following its September 2018 debut. The multilingual Latin heater’s music video meanwhile managed to attract one-billion views in just 16 weeks.

If the question is whether DJ Snake will be able to keep the Latin-stylized musical momentum going moving forward, then “Loco Contigo” is the formidably affirmative answer. The bilingual slow burning number invites J. Balvin and Tyga for audacious auxiliary verses. J. Balvin smoothly delivers his lyrical sentiments in Spanish, while Tyga exerts the finesse of his fierce flow atop a languid background beat. So buckle up for a bit of brand new Snake-sponsored lunacy.
