Illenium Debuts New Collaboration With Jon Bellion At Ubbi Dubbi Festival

Never one to go back on his word, Illenium debuted his forthcoming collaboration with Jon Bellion, “Good Things Fall Apart,” last night at Ubbi Dubbi Festival in Texas.

Illenium headlined the festival’s main stage on its second and final day, bringing all his usual feels, as well as intense combination of heaters. During the set, Illenium debuted his awaited Bellion collaboration to an excited crowd, and the result is nothing short of spectacular.

Production aside, Bellion has an absolutely incredible voice, and it’s hard to imagine this song being as good as it is with anyone else. The two work together perfectly, with Illenium’s emotional production and Bellion’s heartfelt, powerful vocals intertwining in the sonic realm for this wonderful piece of art..

No word yet exactly when this one is coming out, but it’s sure to be sooner than later! We’re still waiting on an official announcement for Illenium’s next album, as well.

Check out the track below.

Moby Reveals That Time He “Rubbed His Penis” On Donald Trump At A Party

In a shocking reveal, Moby tells about the time he “knob-touched” Donald Trump at a party — and it’s a doozy.

This was years ago, well before Trump ever took the presidency. Moby was essentially dared to rub his genitals on the then reality-TV star. Thanks to his instigating friends and a little liquid courage, he was able to seize the opportunity.

This both disturbing and hilarious account is explained in detail via Moby’s new memoir, Then It Fell Apart. The drunken prank is just one single bit from what we’re sure is a mess of exciting tales and adventures.

Here’s the excerpt straight from the memoir, via Consequence of Sound:

“Moby, go knob-touch Donald Trump,” Lee said.

“Really?” I asked. “Should I?”

“Yeah,” Dale said.

“Yeah,” Clarice said, mischievously.

“Shit,” I said, realizing I now had to knob-touch Donald Trump.

I drank a shot of vodka to brace myself, pulled my flaccid penis out of my pants, and casually walked past Trump, trying to brush the edge of his jacket with my penis. Luckily he didn’t seem to notice or even twitch.

I walked back to my friends and ordered another drink. “Did you do it?” Clarice asked.

“I think so. I think I knob-touched Donald Trump.”

There’s plenty more where this came from. Pre-order a copy of Moby’s memoir here.

Woodstock 50 Cancelled

Woodstock 50 has experienced a multitude of issues since being teased. The first obstacle was another festival commonly referred to in the media as Woodstock’s 50th anniversary festival, as it was being held at the original Bethel Woods location. Then, once Woodstock 50 finally announced its lineup, it faced intense scrutiny for the artists chosen to represent the legendary brand. Then Black Keys dropped out.

Then, the ticket on-sale was delayed due to lack of proper permitting.

Now, Woodstock 50’s main investor, Dentsu Aegis Network, has pulled out of the festival and it is officially cancelled.

“It’s a dream for agencies to work with iconic brands and to be associated with meaningful movements,” Dentsu said in a statement. “We have a strong history of producing experiences that bring people together around common interests and causes which is why we chose to be a part of the Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival.”

The company continued, “But despite our tremendous investment of time, effort and commitment, we don’t believe the production of the festival can be executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees. As a result and after careful consideration, Dentsu Aegis Network’s Amplifi Live, a partner of Woodstock 50, has decided to cancel the festival. As difficult as it is, we believe this is the most prudent decision for all parties involved.”

Woodstock 50 was set to feature names like Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, Imagine Dragons, Carlos Santana, Dead & Company and Halsey.

CHVRCHES’ Lauren Mayberry Receives Death Threats After Condemning Marshmello For Chris Brown & Tyga Collab

Last week, CHVRCHES made posts on social media condemning Marshmello for working with abusers Chris Brown and Tyga. In their post, they wrote: “We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior. That is not something we can or will stand behind.”

The statement reignited the debate as to whether (or when) past abusers could possibly be forgiven for their actions, or whether people should separate the artist and their art. There were vocal minorities on both sides, but CHVRCHES lead singer Lauren Mayberry has received the worst of it.

Across two separate posts on Instagram, she shares DMs sent by outraged Brown and Tyga fans who hurl insults and threats of death and rape toward her.

These are independent of — or perhaps fueled by — Chris Brown’s response to CHVRCHES on Instagram, in which he said: “BUNCH OF LOSERS. these are the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients, Keep groveling over your own insecurities and hatred.”

Tyga, to his credit, responded with a bit more class: “Where [sic] all God’s children. Everyone makes mistakes no ones perfect. Let’s keep the energy positive.”

See the DMs sent to Mayberry below, who has since disabled comments on her last two posts in light of persistent and constant harassment. More examples of death threats can be seen in her most recent highlighted story on Instagram.

Diplo Brings Out Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus for Debut “Old Town Road” Performance + Drops Official Remix

Diplo took the stage at Stagecoach last night with Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus in tow for the first ever live performance of “Old Town Road.” But beyond that ridiculousness, he also just released his official remix for the #1 track. While it doesn’t do much to change up the original two versions, aside from a more structured “drop” section,  it’s still a significant release that will likely aid in the continued chart success of “Old Town Road.”

Watch videos of the performance below and peep the official remix at the bottom.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Demolishes Box Office Record with $1.2 Billion Opening Weekend

The Avengers franchise just one-upped itself in the most epic way possible…

Avengers: Endgame absolutely demolished the record for biggest opening in movie history. In its first weekend, the film brought in a whopping $1.2 billion.

The record, previously held by Avengers: Infinity War, was set last year at $560 million. Marvel and the Avengers have more than doubled their year-over-year impact and exceeded any expectation set for the film’s opening weekend.

If you’re one of the many people that went out and saw Endgame over the weekend, you were part of box office history. If you haven’t watched the film yet — we highly recommend you do. Whether you’re a superhero buff or not, Endgame truly has it all.

Ekali Reveals Collab with Illenium on the Horizon [DETAILS]

Ekali and Illenium have a collab coming out and we’ll say it louder for those in the back — EKALI AND ILLENIUM HAVE A COLLAB COMING OUT!

Fans are high key excited (including us) following a brief announcement via Ekali’s social media. One simple tweet from the producer is all it took — Who’s ready for Ekali x Illenium? We all are.

Illenium previously dropped an edit of Ekali and 1788-L’s “R U I N.” They’ve also been known to go b2b during live sets. It was really only a matter of time before they linked up together.

If this is a new single they’re gearing us up for — that’s great. Honestly, we’d listen to an entire album of Ekali x Illenium if they put one out.

Now, it’s just a waiting game. Stay tuned for more info.

Ekali x Illenium Coming Soon

Ubbi Dubbi Day 1 Called Early On Account Of Flash Thunderstorm

By all accounts, Ubbi Dubbi’s first day yesterday went smoothly and by the book. Sets from Joyryde, Droeloe, Keys N Krates, Drezo and more had attendees jumping and having fun.

Unfortunately, a flash thunderstorm caused the final couple sets to be cut short. Reports of hail and flooding from attendees certainly put a damper on things, but all after parties were still scheduled to go. For one, while Zeds Dead’s set was cut short, they headed to The Yard to do an impromptu B2B with NGHTMRE, so all was not lost!

Thanks for an amazing day 1 of #UbbiDubbiFest! Due to a flash thunderstorm, the festival ended a little early. After parties are still happening. Everyone get home safely.

— Ubbi Dubbi Festival (@UbbidubbiFest) April 28, 2019

Sorry @UbbidubbiFest the weather wasn’t having it :*( that set was feeling so good! Gonna go over to the yard for a lil b2b with @NGHTMRE hope to see some of you there!

— ZEDS DEAD (@zedsdead) April 28, 2019

According to promoter Disco Donnie, the festival is still set to move forward as planned for day 2, with Illenium, What So Not, Slander, and more.

Tiësto Drops Another Sure-Hit Collab On Heels Of ‘Together’ EP

It’s one huge release after another for Tiësto. Earlier this month, his Together EP hosted eight brand new tracks, full of collabs with fresh, exciting artists. Now, he’s at it again with a massive addition.

The producer just hit us with yet another massive collaboration, “Feels So Good.” It’s definitely the feel-good song you need to start your weekend off right, featuring Justin Caruso and the vocal stylings of Kelli-Leigh.

With catchy, radio-ready vocals, a signature house beat, uplifting melodies and an overall energetic vibe, “Feels So Good” is a no-brainer kind of collab. Put it on and feel an instant mood boost coming through your speakers.

We’re certainly not the only ones excited about the collab… “To say I have a song coming out with @Tiesto still feels surreal,” Caruso reveals in a tweet. “When I wanted to become a DJ, I used to sit in my bedroom and watch Tiësto live streams for hours.”

Listen to “Feels So Good” below and the entire Together EP here.

Chris Brown Responds to Chvrches: “BUNCH OF LOSERS”

Two days ago, April 25, CHVRCHES called out Marshmello on social media for putting out a track with known abusers Chris Brown and Tyga, “Light It Up.” In their statement, the band wrote: “We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior. That is not something we can or will stand behind.”

CHVRCHES previously worked with Marshmello on their collaboration “Here With Me.”

Marshmello has not responded to their condemnation, but Brown has. In the comments of one of CHVRCHES’ recent Instagram posts, Brown wrote a volatile and hate-filled message to the group, wishing they “walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patience” [sic].

“BUNCH OF LOSERS. these are the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patience, Keep groveling over your own insecurities and hatred,” he wrote on Instagram. “IM BLACK AND PROUD. AND I KNOW ITS HURTS THAT U GUYS ARE STRUGGLING WIT LIFE OR PEACE SO U ARE FORCED TO SEE MY SUCCESS. You aren’t even #2 (REMEMBER 2nd place only means YOU LOST FIRST! TA-TA. GOODDAY PEASANTS.”

Compared to CHVRCHES thought-out and conscientious message of respect women’s safety, Brown’s comment reflects exactly the person the band accused him of being.

The band has not yet responded to Brown’s statement, but he’s likely done more than enough on his own. See the full comment below.
