Avicii’s Father Klas Bergling Talks Suicide Prevention & Announces Tim Bergling Foundation

At the beginning of the month, it was announced that father of Avicii, Klas Bergling, would speak at IMS Ibiza 2019 on the topic of mental health and shining a light on the vital work of the Tim Berling Foundation. This past Thursday, Klas spoke, sharing the ethics and philosophy of the newly created foundation, once again drawing attention to the importance of recognizing and treating the early signs of deteriorating mental health, anxiety and depression for performing artists and those working in the music industry.

The interview at IMS was conducted by well known producer/DJ/radio host Pete Tong. In the interview, Klas paid tribute to his son and outlined some of the areas that may have contributed to a deterioration of his state of mind, pointing at a punishing schedule, lack of sleep, pressure to perform and alcohol abuse all contributing to depression and anxiety.

“It’s not many jobs that you can drink while you work, or you’re allowed to. If you start drinking at your job, your manager is supposed to take care of you quickly […] Life as a DJ and travels where you don’t get any rest between, you travel a lot you sleep less. The pressure is great depending on the individual, some people handle it perfectly, others don’t.”

To celebrate Tim’s life and to continue his legacy, the Tim Bergling Foundation was created on March 26, 2019, funded solely from the estate left by Avicii. Working internationally but starting initially in Sweden, the foundation aims to educate people and businesses on the issues surrounding suicide and mental health, also focusing on climate change and endangered species, causes that were very close to Tim’s heart.

“We are setting up the foundation to focus preventative work for mental illness and suicide, we are also looking at threatened animals and nature which was Tim’s passion as well as climate.”

Diplo Reveals Travis Scott Ghosted Several of His Text Messages

Diplo and Travis Scott’s last collaboration on Major Lazer’s 2017 hit, “Know No Better,” also featuring Camila Cabello & Quavo. Now, Travis wants to make another song with Diplo, but it seems that Diplo has been trying to hit up Scott for years with no luck.

The two met up after some unspecified festival, according to Wes, when they got to talking.

“Travis sees me after a festival and says ‘Hey, let’s make another song,’” he captioned the post. “Me: ‘What’s your new number?’ Adds number, texts him the next day ‘This is Diplo’…notices the number was saved and I already sent desperate-looking texts to the same number fifteen times over 5 years.”

Yikes.

I mean really, who ghosts Diplo??? Well, I suppose if you’re Travis Scott, it could make some sense. Nonetheless, be on the lookout for a new heater from Diplo and Scott sometime soon!

Here Are The Most-Played Tracks From EDC Las Vegas 2019

Here Are The Most-Played Tracks From EDC Las Vegas 2019

This year was the biggest ever at EDC Las Vegas, with bigger artists, bigger stages, more people, and more space than ever before. Including art cars and Corona Electric Beach, this year’s EDC had a staggering 15 stages with over 300 artists between them — that’s a lot of tracks being played out.

But, thanks to tracklist aggregator 1001tracklists, we know what the top 10 tracks played at EDC Las Vegas this year were. Compared to last year, only one track remained in the top 10, Gammer’s “The Drop,” which dropped from #1 to #2. The rest were new to the top 10 list, but not necessarily all tracks were new.

Fisher’s “Losing It” making the list is no surprise, but to see RL Grime’s “Core” make a comeback at #10 is a bit surprising; same with “Prison Riot” from Flosstradamus and GTA. What’s also surprising is the actual absence of “Old Town Road,” either the original or the remix with Billy Ray.

See below for the full top 10 list from this year!

1. DJ Snake & Eptic – SouthSide

2. Gammer – The Drop

3. Eliminate – Them ft. Virus Syndicate

4. Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo present Anti Up – Concentrate

5. Eliminate – Weeble Wobble

6. Zomboy – Lone Wolf

7. Fisher – Losing It

8. GTA – Booty Bounce ft. DJ Funk (GTA HYPRR MIX)

9. Flosstradamus & GTA – Prison Riot ft. Lil Jon

10. RL Grime – Core

Local police department wants people to stop bringing their horse down Old Town Road

Local police department wants people to stop bringing their horse down Old Town Road

The popularity of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has propagated throughout every age bracket, socioeconomic level, race and more. It’s a verified hit and there’s no way you could escape it. Now, the song is having real life consequences for residents new Manchester, New Hampshire, where the real Old Town Rd. is causing trouble.

Apparently, aspiring rappers were heading to the road and filming amateur rap videos or covers to the song, and disturbing local residents. It got so bad that the New Hampshire police department posted a notice on its Facebook:

“Attention aspiring local rappers. Please stop taking your horses down to our Old Town Road. This quiet neighborhood off Troy Road is not a suitable filming location for your amateur rap videos. For our older followers, please disregard this pop culture reference and continue your equestrian activities as usual.”

The department ended the post with a joke, posting a photo of Dean from “Supernatural” as a cowboy with the caption: “You’ve yee’d your last haw.”

Clearly there is some humor in the situation, and it’s hard not to get a chuckle or two out of it. But for the residents on Old Town Rd., this is a very real issue indeed. Watch the local news report below.

Ray Volpe Just Released His Best Song Yet, “Save Me”

I have been a fan of Ray Volpe for years now, and I’ve known him personally for a little less than that. I’ve listened to track after track, and all his EPs, but I’ve never heard him put out something like “Save Me” and I honestly believe this is his best track yet.

All producers inevitably fall into a rhythm and develop habits that, for better or worse, create a bit of monotony in their sound. That being said, when those producers finally break free of those habits, it’s like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon — and Ray Volpe is that butterfly. And to keep the analogy going, “Save Me” is the happiness seeing a butterfly brings to a child? I don’t know, I think I’m losing track of my point here.

“Save Me” is the amalgamation of all of Ray’s styles and sounds up to this point, utilizing his vocal processing, dirty basslines, uplifting melodies, and creative song writing all in one glorious bundle. It goes from filth to beauty at the drop of a hat and never manages to miss a beat.

Best of all, I hear this is only the beginning… Listen to “Save Me” from Ray Volpe below, out now via Thrive Music.

BIJOU Unleashes Emotional Dance Record “Lose Control” ft. Marco XO [MUST LISTEN]

BIJOU always stays on the attack with a bold release schedule. This time, he hits us with one of his most cohesive collaborations to date, “Lose Control” featuring Marco XO, which also marks his first venture into the EDM realm.

Some of the best songs come together organically and certainly that’s the case with “Lose Control.” The producer’s attention to detail presents itself immediately, with delicate vocal chops, airy, pulsing textures, and an overall unbeatable groove. As soon as Orlando rapper Marco XO jumps in, the production kicks into gear, provoking a thoughtful, emotional dance record.

BIJOU provides a statement with the release:

This was hands down one of my favorite tracks to work on. I had gone through so many different vocal options but none seemed to really fit until Marco and I finally hit the studio in LA. His work flow is amazing and it came so organically as he wrote the lyrics on the spot. No pen, no paper, just a straight up vibe and flow to make this record come to life.

This original g house hybrid finds home on BIJOU’s own Do Not Duplicate Recordings. Listen below, download for free while you can, and link up with BIJOU on all platforms below.

Find Out How You Can Listen To The New Avicii Album Early

Find Out How You Can Listen To The New Avicii Album Early

Avicii’s posthumous album TIM is set to be released in a little less than two weeks, on Thursday, June 6. However, select fans will be able to listen to the album a few days early via some interesting cubes around the world.

These cubes were first revealed yesterday, and have since been the subject of debate. No one really knew what they were for or how they’d be used, or even how they connected to Avicii in a grander sense. A new video today from his YouTube has uncovered a bit of the mystery.

Avicii’s music was the soundtrack when we fell in love, when we made new friends and that time we danced all night. Avicii connected us. Around the world there are cubes just like this one. Walk inside and place your hand on the glowing Avicii symbol. When the symbols in two cubes are touched at the same time both cubes will activate. Together you will experience the new Avicii album.

The exact location of the cubes is still unknown. Also unknown are the logistics behind the cubes… Will only a select number of people be able to enter the cubes? Will it be open to the public or is there an RSVP link to come? Will people stay in the cube for the duration of the album? Will more than one person be allowed inside at a time?

All these questions are likely to be answered in the coming days, as the cubes will be found in Stockholm, London, São Paulo, New York City, Sydney, and Tokyo on June 1 & 2. Watch the video below.
