Snails Just Proposed The Best DJ Game Ever & It Needs To Happen

Snails just proposed the DJ game of the century — and we think this needs to happen.

The concept is simple: every DJ down to play the game preps a flash drive. Which, is common practice. Where it gets interesting through is that all the DJs must put their USB in a bucket. Each performer then chooses a random USB from said bucket. Then, everyone must play an entire set with the random USB they picked.

Further rules of the proposed game address USB content. Most importantly, there must be at least an hour of playable content on all of the thumb drives. We have a feeling more needs to be hashed out before game play, and some others are already chiming in.

DJs including Laidback Luke, Sullivan King, Cray, Felix Cartel, and more have expressed interested in throwing down. This should get really, really interesting.

Thanks to Snails, USB Roulette is now a thing and we won’t be satisfied until the game is played.

OMFG I JUST CREATED THE SICKEST GAME EVER!!!!!

REPORT: Twitter Might Remove the “Like” Button To Engage Healthier Conversation

Twitter is considering removing its “like” button and the reason why actually makes a lot of sense…

As we scroll through our feeds, we’re all guilty of lazily “liking” something. Those “likes” go into a sort of Twitter purgatory, most likely never to be seen again. How often do we go back to something we “liked” to engage with it?

Well, just like everything else on the platform, Twitter is reconsidering the like button altogether. Multiple reports have surfaced, saying the social media giant has plans to remove the “like” tool to improve the quality of debate. On top of it all, founder Jack Dorsey admitted last week he’s not a fan and will rid it “soon.”

Twitter has commented as a whole, addressing the future of the “like” button and more…

As we’ve been saying for a while, we are rethinking everything about the service to ensure we are incentivizing healthy conversation, that includes the like button. We are in the early stages of the work and have no plans to share right now.

Do you think Twitter would be better if it ditched the heart? Let us know!

Ekali Announces Album For 2019

Ekali is still in the throes of his current EP tour and he’s just announced a full album set for release sometime in 2019.

Honestly, this sounds as much like goal affirmation as an announcement, a promise to himself to get it done. “No producer collabs, no ghost production, I’m gonna mix and master it myself,” he followed up. “I am so excited about it.”

Ekali’s latest Crystal Eyes EP features collaborations on five out of the six tracks, so a claim of “no producer collabs” holds special weight, especially in a year fraught with so many.

No other information on track list or release date is available, but you heard it here first: expect an Ekali album next year.

No producer collabs, no ghost production, I’m gonna mix and master it myself. I am so excited about it.
