For more than a decade, DJ Earworm has been blending the year’s top songs into a massive “United States of Pop” mashup at the end of each year. He began the series in 2007, kicking off with a combo of songs from Soulja Boy, Akon, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Fergie, and more. It’s been 11 years since that inaugural mashup, and Earworm hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.

His 2018 edition just made its YouTube debut on December 4, highlighted by tracks from Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Zedd, Childish Gambino, Marshmello, and more. The four-minute mashup kicks off with songs from Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, and Maroon 5 and Cardi B, before cycling through Drake‘s iconic “In My Feelings,” Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse,” Travis Scott and Drake’s “Sicko Mode,” and dozens others.

The intersection of electronic music and esports keeps growing, and ZEDD is back at the forefront of this intersection as he becomes the unofficial “11th man” for New York City’s Overwatch League Franchise, NYXL, during their homecoming weekend. The Overwatch League team has hosted a six-week pop-up shop called NYXL Shop & LAN, which includes a gaming center and exclusive merchandise. For the NYXL Homecoming Weekend, the players will come back to meet fans, and compete in friendly matches with NYC gamers, as well as exhibition games with the Philly and LA teams.

NYXL’s Homecoming Weekend will kicked off on Friday, November 30 with top New York gamers facing off against NYXL. On Saturday December 1, NYXL played Philadelphia Fusion following exhibition matches with the True Colors producer. To close out the weekend, NYXL will play Los Angeles Valiant on Sunday, December 2. This is not ZEDD’s first run-in with esports, after being chosen to create the official song for Riot’s League of Legends Worlds Championship back in 2016, titled “Ignite.” The NYXL Homecoming Weekend is open to the public, but for those wanted private meet & greet’s and increased access, VIP tickets are available. For those who can’t make it, all of the matches including ZEDD’s will be streamed on NYXL’s Twitch Channel.

ZEDD shines, Marshmello wins big, and Taylor Swift dominates at this year’s American Music AwardsReactions Taylor Swift 2018 AMAs Performance

The American Music Awards took place in Los Angeles last night, and if nothing else, it proved that Taylor Swift still rules the world. The artist made her first awards show performance in three years with track “I Did Something Bad.” She proceeded to take home four awards including the award for Artist of the Year, making her the most awarded artist in AMA history. If nothing else, this year’s award ceremony showcased that hip-hop and pop stylings still predominate mainstream music preferences, but electronic music continues to prove it is worth the seat it now has at the table.

Electronic music highlights include ZEDD performing his “Lost In Japan” remix with Shawn Mendes. The “Happy Now” producer played the piano while Mendes captivated the audience with his singing, all supported by a live band in the background. ZEDD was the only electronic music act to perform at the award show. Elsewhere, The Chainsmokers continued their campaign to bring electronic music to the mainstream with their consistent representation at the biggest music industry award shows. Nominated for one award this year, the duo along with “This Feeling” collaborator Kelsea Ballerini were stage hosts presenting Post Malone‘s performance.

One award was dedicated to electronic music, with Marshmello beating out both The Chainsmokers and ZEDD for the Favorite Electronic Dance Music Artist award. The full list of awards and winners are listed below.
