Cash Cash Threw A Mixer Into The Crowd At Ultra After Repeated Technical Difficulties

Technical difficulties at shows happen, and they suck. However, the mark of a true artist is how you adapt and respond to these difficulties, and unfortunately for Cash Cash, the deck was stacked against them.

The trio went on the main stage at Ultra Music Festival at 5:05 PM local time and the equipment quickly took a turn for the worse. According to a source on the scene, the group’s mixer began to fail after exposure to pyrotechnics on the stage. After the mixer completely failed, a different source tells Your EDM that one of the group members apparently threw the mixer off the stage toward the crowd in frustration.

Cash Cash’s set was reportedly down for approximately 20 minutes while festival staff replaced the faulty mixer — the group has been going strong on the live stream ever since. You can watch it here.

Note: the offending incident occurred before Cash Cash appeared on the live stream.

Ultimately, our sources say there’s no bad blood between the festival and Cash Cash for the act and they’re continuing their set without any further issues.

More problems at @ultra 😂😂Cash Cash chucking a CDJ off stage after power cuts three times!!!

DJs Sound Off About KFC’s Ultra Set Led By Colonel Sanders

KFC played a set at Ultra Music Festival yesterday and DJs are sounding off about it.

Days ago, KFC took to Twitter to announce that DJ Colonel Sanders would take the stage — not just any stage mind you, but the Main Stage — at Ultra Miami. Here’s what the brand wrote:

One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I have been a huge fan of electronic music for the last few days, and I can’t wait to show off the DJ skills I’ve developed in that time. SEE ME LIVE AT ULTRA on 3/29!

From the beginning, this entire stunt has been pretty cheesy. Even yesterday’s headliner, Marshmello called KFC’s set “lame.” The main argument against DJ Colonel Sanders amongst popular DJs is the fact that there are plenty up-and-coming artists deserving of the spot. And, they’re absolutely right.

Various DJs describe the “Ultra Fast Food Festival” stunt as a “rip on rave culture,” “Disneyland corporate level shit,” and just flat out “tacky.” Extra crispy or not — for many in the industry, this is hard to stomach.

So, Colonel Sanders set at Ultra Music Festival was… interesting 🤔

DJs React To KFC’s Ultra Set

Sorry bro we did the edm chicken thing before you

— habstrakt (@habstrakt) March 30, 2019

This @kfc colonel sanders Djing at @ultra is lame. I can think of a lot of other artists that actually deserve to be on that stage instead.

— marshmello (@marshmellomusic) March 29, 2019

this made me feel so awkward watching :/// wtf is this cringe. Ur right. There are some of the most amazing up and coming artists who should be seen and who deserve to be seen. Yuk.

— ALISON WONDERLAND (@awonderland) March 30, 2019

Nah. It’s tacky. They could have found a better way that doesn’t cheapen what we do

— ALISON WONDERLAND (@awonderland) March 30, 2019

If you think the KFC thing is any different than the way most everything works in the music industry now.. well I’ve got news for you….

— Hunter Siegel ;( (@HunterSiegel) March 30, 2019

And for dessert…a single marshmello…cheapskates

Curious as to what people think about this… any thoughts anyone might want to share here? pic.twitter.com/8faj4diE1i

— Kaskade (@kaskade) March 30, 2019

Pump the breaks bruh. We got the Chicken and EDM thing on lock.

— Porn and Chicken 👉🏾🔥 “Get Back” Out (@pornNchicken) March 30, 2019

kfc & ultra woulda gotten way less heat (and more success) if they just made a helmet that looked like a piece of fried chicken and named the dj “fryd chiken”

this method has been tested & works already. sending colonel sanders was too ballsy.

— josh pan (@joshpan) March 30, 2019

Yeah I get it Dj Colonel Sanders had the best set at ultra I’ll admit it but it doesn’t change the fact that my family found a cockroach in our KFC order when I was 7

— Deathloadz🔜RAMPAGE (@Dubloadz) March 30, 2019

Just because people are talking about your product doesn’t make it any better! KFC still selling your ass a three day old fried thigh.

— 𝐙𝐎𝐌𝐁𝐎𝐘 (@Zomboy) March 30, 2019

The biggest thing I’ve heard about WMC is KFC lifestyle branding stunt, fascinates me where the line is drawn for people’s outrage. It’s inconsistent. But when it comes to music I’ve found… most people aren’t as smart as you’d hope -but they also aren’t as stupid as you think

— ЖTИ (@killthenoise) March 30, 2019

This KFC ultra thing is so weird but low-key proves that if you have money and a mask, you too can be a superstar DJ 🤣

— Modestep (@Modestep) March 30, 2019

i heard a Crispy Chicken Wing produced it. sent it to Mashed Potatoes for mastering though

— Ruely🌱 (@ruelytunes) March 30, 2019

I’ve been predicting an actual DJ like this that does full sets and has a personality being accepted as a festival headliner for awhile now. I don’t mean a corporate sponsor thing like KFC, I mean a digital character instead of a dj. Like the next evolution of masked/helmet DJs

— Golf Clap (@golfclapdet) March 30, 2019

.@kfc collab bro?

— Dimitri Vangelis (@DimitriVangelis) March 30, 2019

WATCH THE 2019 ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL LIVE STREAM [DAY 2]

Ultra Music Festival is back for another day on Virginia Key — and it’s time to start streaming!

The first day saw performances from tons of amazing artists including SOPHIE, Tom Morello, Louis The Child, Tiesto, Alesso, Dog Blood, and Marshmello. Listen to yesterday’s sets here to get caught up.

Today, UMF TV returns for round 2 with live sets (we expect) from Martin Garrix, deadmau5, Zedd, Armin van Buuren, Tchami, NGHTMRE & Slander, Illenium and more. Remember: with extended hours, the stream ends later than usual (running 5 pm – 2 am EST). See live stream set times below, or the full schedule here.

With a new location has come some major changes. The music festival hasn’t gone 100% smoothly so far — but we can always count on Ultra for a quality soundtrack and state of the art production. The views of the live stream from home are better than ever.

ULTRA RESPONDS AFTER THOUSANDS STRANDED ON DAY 1

Tens of thousands of attendees all tried to exit Ultra Music Festival at once last night after Marshmello finished his set at 2am EDT. Predictably, this caused a logistical nightmare at the shuttle stops which was only compounded by traffic and an apparent accident that forced attendees to walk the causeway home. Their alternative options were to wait hours for a shuttle, or pay exorbitant fees for an Uber or Lyft. Many people who left the festival after it concluded report not getting back to their hotels or Airbnbs until close to 6am.

This morning, Ultra Music Festival released an official statement, calling the issues “unacceptable and inconsistent with the high standards you have come to expect from us.”

Ultra’s statement continues to say that they’ve been working with the city to actively improve conditions, as it’s in everyone’s best interest to avoid a repeat of the events of night one, which also included a fire on the premises that required swift action by the fire department. That, in addition to everything else, also contributed to the gridlock on the causeway.

“Changes to the transportation plan are being implemented today,” Miami Commissioner Ken Russell said in a statement. “I’m hopeful that plan will be much improved and the City will not have more of a disruption than experienced yesterday and early this morning.”

OFFICIAL STATEMENT:Last night, many of you experienced challenging transportation conditions leaving the festival….

Here’s What That Colonel Sanders Ultra Set Was All About

Everyone took notice of the Ultra set times via the app when it was revealed that none other than KFC founder Colonel Sanders was set to perform on the main stage. It’s easily one of the strangest bookings we’ve ever seen, and we have a lot of questions.

Sanders was supposed to be on the live stream, but as it’s running about 20 minutes late right now, it cut straight from Matoma to SOPHIE at the Live Arena. (See the live stream and full schedule here.)

Thankfully, at least one person had service enough to upload a video of the KFC founder’s set and it… is…

Well, just take a look.

KFC’s own Colonel Sanders @ #ultra was 🤷🏼‍♂️pic.twitter.com/rPeef5EBxg

— Andre Saint-Albin (@AndreSaintAlbin) March 29, 2019

Some person in a large Colonel Sanders helmet is DJing on stage with accompanying visuals — this seems to be he most elaborate PR stunt ever pulled by a brand at a music festival and we can’t tell if our cringing is out of love or pure awkwardness.

Hot New Track from Roukin + Hobbs Included in Doorly’s Reptile Dysfunction Sampler

Miami Music Week is kicking off and the impending marathon that is Ultra is coming in hot. With that in mind take a look at this fresh track from Doorly’s Reptile Dysfunction Sampler that’s been put together in honor of the annual event.

The track, Game Plan is a collab between Roukin and Hobbs, and sets the tone for what’s sure to be an amazing weekend. It’s a an easy blend of g-funk, synth-pop and house, and gives you a warm reminder of good times in Ibiza.

In fact, the track itself was inspired by the glow of the island and that magic transition from day into night. Other hot new artists in Doorly’s Sampler include El Provost, Colour Castle, Rick Wade, Olivia Dawn, Thackson, Josh Newsham, SEVADER, and Mike Woods. In addition to the curation, Doorly himself adds some beats to the collection as well.

Jai Wolf Drops Out Of Ultra Due To “Unforeseen Logistical Issues”

Ultra is officially open and the stages are playing, but not all that glitters is gold. An hour ago, Jai Wolf revealed that he’s been forced to pull out of the festival due to “unforeseen logistical issues.” It’s unclear if these issues have to do with his stage or something else entirely, but that’s the long and short of it.

Jai Wolf was scheduled to play at UMF Radio for the Foreign Family Collective takeover tonight at 11:15 PM.

This makes the second cancellation for the festival, whether for health or other reasons. Eric Prydz was forced to withdraw from all Miami appearances earlier this week due to health concerns.

In addition, the main stage went dark as power completely went out around 3 PM local time as Dzeko was scheduled to take the stage. Power was out for approximately 20 minutes. Not the best start for the festival, overall.

It’s not all bad news, however. Jai Wolf just dropped the last single from his forthcoming album The Cure To Loneliness before it drops in full next week. “Better Apart” featuring Dresage is out now.

Dog Blood Premiere New Song with Ty Dolla $ign In Miami [WATCH]

Skrillex and Boys Noize joined forces for an epic Dog Blood set last night. The Brownies & Lemonade hosted party in Miami also featured 1788-L b2b Blanke, A-Trak b2b Anna Lunoe and more.

One particular ID from the night is a superstar collaboration between Dog Blood and Ty Dolla $ign. And hot damn — does it sound amazing. Ty Dolla’s smooth flow matched with a rhythmic house drop is exactly what we’re living for in 2019.

Brownies & Lemonade was there to capture the moment (obviously, it was their party) — so luckily we can replay this moment over and over again. See another view here.

Dog Blood just put out new music today, their first new single since 2013. There’s no telling if and when this one with Ty Dolla $ign will get an official release, but it sounds like a sure hit.

The Chainsmokers Drop New Album Single “Kills You Slowly”

It’s getting really hard to predict what The Chainsmokers are going to do next, and that’s working entirely in their favor. After putting out a lackluster debut album, they brought it back with Sick Boy, using intelligent lyrics and mixing in a diverse array of pop and EDM. Now, the group is dropping singles from its third album World War Joy and it’s pretty damn pop so far.

The Chainsmokers dropped a new song today called “Kills You Slowly” that plays like a mumble rappers attempt at a ballad, at least as far as rhythm goes. The subtle melody and in-your-face 808 snares in the chorus also help to add to that effect.

Overall, it’s absolutely one of the slowest and most stripped down songs that The Chainsmokers have ever put out. There’s no grand production or crazy effects to mask any shortcomings in the song, and there are a couple. But there’s no way to deny that this group is forging its own path in the pop/EDM crossover sphere and they’re succeeding.

The Chainsmokers will close out Ultra Music Festival this Sunday, March 31, at 12:30 PM EDT. Listen to “Kill You Slowly” below.



The Chainsmokers – Kills You Slowly [Lyrics]

[Verse 1] Made plans with me and all your friends
I’m late again, I hate to keep you waiting
Tried to be a gentleman, got drunk again before I even made it
Tried to call a car for you, you’re tired of me, I know you wouldn’t take it
You walked a mile in Louis Vuittons and fucked ’em up, you know that they’re my favourite

[Pre-Chorus] But we dress up and play pretend
Then we act like we’re good again
I do things I can’t defend
And even when you hold it in

[Chorus] Hold it, even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

[Verse 2] Arguments that never end, you’re talkin’ shit to spice up conversation
I’m so sick of back and forth, these fights with you are startin’ to feel contagious
Said that I’m no good for you right before we walk into your parents
Then you put on that smile again and grab my hand even though you hate it

[Pre-Chorus] But we dress up and play pretend
Then we act like we’re good again
I do things I can’t defend
And even when you hold it in

[Chorus] Hold it, even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

[Post-Chorus] Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said
You hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t
Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said
You hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t

[Bridge] Hold it, even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
And keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

[Chorus] Holdin’ even though it kills you slowly (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Holdin’ even though it kills you slowly (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
