Pasquale Rotella Responds To DJ Khaled Incident

It seems as if people can’t stop talking about DJ Khaled getting booed off stage at EDC Las Vegas last weekend. Fans, fellow artists, media outlets, and everything in between has been flooded with talk of the “sabotaged set”. Was it sabotage? Was it driven by the unsatisfied crowd? We would love to hear from someone who actually can clear up this mess so we can finally move on. Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella has finally stepped onto the PR scene after dealing with more important matters to help guide us toward the truth. According to a statement that was given to Billboard, Pasquale says that “Due to technical difficulties beyond DJ Khaled and Insomniac’s control, Khaled was not able to perform at his scheduled time on Sunday night at EDC. He arrived on time and ready to rock the crowd, but equipment issues delayed the performance. Even though there were technical difficulties he still got on stage and showed his fans

deadmau5 Fires Shots at The Chainsmokers Once Again

Infamous Twitter user, deadmau5, and The Chainsmokers have never really saw eye-to-eye. From calling The Chainsmokers a “cancer” a few years ago, the feud between the two parties has been going on for a while. Yesterday, Joel Zimmerman, went to Twitter to further express his distaste for The Chainsmokers’ music by claiming them to be “shit”. In a sequence of a few tweets, Zimmerman stated of how he “made the mistake” of listening to a Chainsmokers track and was convinced that they are worse than originally anticipated. Check out the full Twitter rant below. sorry, i just made the terrible mistake of listening to a chainsmokers song. at least the first 6 seconds of it. i was trying to do somethin — dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) June 20, 2017 I ALSO NEED TO LEARN HOW TO UNROLL A SUIT @thechainsmokers i used to just say you were shit for fun. now im 100% convinced you’re shit. — dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) June 20, 2017 you

Insomniac Issues Statement On Death At EDC

Unfortunately one of the realities today of the rave festival world is that occasionally there are deaths reported. They are caused by various reasons with drug use being one of the most common, but for EDC LV the extreme heat of the Las Vegas desert brings in another dangerous factor that can put people at risk. Were sad to report that Insomniac has confirmed one of EDC’s attendees did pass away this last weekend. The cause of death has not been reported yet but I have read heat exhaustion was a factor. Some believe this was caused by inadequate access to water and medical help. Anyone who attended EDC can confirm this was not the case, because if you were anywhere near the Las Vegas motor speedway you could not walk more than 5 minutes without seeing someone selling water, free water or medics or police. For now we hope the persons family can find peace in knowing that their loved one passed away doing what he loved. Insomniac has released a statement below: “The

Australian Band Parcels Enlist Daft Punk for Collaboration

When it comes to Daft Punk collaborations, most people think of Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, The Weeknd, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers, or other massive names with huge followings. That’s why it’s a little odd that Daft Punk just co-wrote and produced a track for an Australian group named Parcels, who only have less than 9,000 SoundCloud followers.  Parcels just release their brand new track, ‘Overnight‘ that is co-written and produced by the French duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo and Thomas Bangalter. The track was created in a studio at a secret location in Paris, however first little other information was given.  In an interview with NME, Parcels gave some insight into the studio session crediting Daft Punk for not having a massive ego, despite the fact that they are some of the most famous producers in the world. “From the start to the finish, it was an equal collaboration with no pressure, only a desire to create something meaningful
