Forbes’ List Of 30 Under 30 Musicians for 2019, Judged By Marshmello

Forbes has unleashed its annual 30 Under 30 list, along with its music branch. These are the most influential 30 musicians under the age of 30 who are topping the charts and shifting culture, as judged by Boi-1da, Marshmello and Molly DeWolf Swenson.

Camila Cabello (21), Billie Elish (16), Post Malone (23), Lil Pump (18) and Juice WRLD (19) are just some of the artists on the list for 2019, which represents pop, hip hop, electronic and beyond. And, no, those aren’t their respective spots on the list — those numbers are the ages of these young talents.

Electronic producer and vocalist Yaeji (25) represents the genre with two acclaimed EPs, tour dates around the world, and even a slot at Coachella. Producer Madame Gandhi (29), who has toured with M.I.A., also makes the list.

It comes as no surprise, Marshmello’s manager Moe Shalizi (28) is also on the list.

In addition, co-founders of Monstercat, Mike Darlington (29) and Ari Paunonen (29), are given a nod for their work with the successful dance label.

The Chainsmokers Share Their Top 5 Songs Of All Time In Random Reddit Thread

For anyone who’s not already aware, The Chainsmokers are actually pretty active on Reddit, often popping into random threads or starting their own discussions on various subreddits.

As evidence of this, The Chainsmokers posted their top 5 EDM songs of all time in a thread on /r/EDM last week, and hardly anyone noticed. It was only just yesterday that a screenshot of their response hit the front page on the same subreddit that people realized.

Even the top response is questioning whether it’s really them or not… Spoiler: it is.

Comment from discussion Greatest EDM track.

For their choices, The Chainsmokers select some real serious hits:

  • deadmau5 – Strobe
  • Calvin Harris – Feel So Close
  • Nadia Ali, Starkillers & Alex Kenji – Pressure (Alesso Remix)
  • Avicii – Seek Bromance
  • Swedish House Mafia – Leave The World Behind

Each of these songs left such a powerful lasting impact on the dance music world; you can probably think of at least one time you heard one of these songs and had a powerful experience, if not the first time you heard them.

People give The Chainsmokers a lot of flack for putting out a lot of music that would fall under pop these days, but at the end of the day, they’re still just as in love with EDM as they were when they first started.

Calvin Harris Says He’s Not Influenced By Current EDM

Calvin Harris just checked in with fans through an impromptu Twitter Q&A session.

There’s something to be learned here about his relationship with EDM, which he says he’s leaving behind. Plus, his thoughts on live performance and his background in music.

The producer most recently revisited his vocalist talents for Benny Blanco‘s “I Found You.” Harris is in this current rhythm with a steady flow of collaborative singles, with Normani, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa, and more. These days, he’s more likely to be seen climbing the charts than rocking a main stage.

The next four questions offer some insight as to where Calvin Harris is at, where he’s heading, and where he’s certainly not heading. Read up.

Will he be going back to EDM at some point? No.

EDM has been sad, slow songs for years now. Doesn’t have anything in common with the music I love to make. 2010-2014 edm was more house influenced to me. Anyway now I’m out the bubble and making big records with amazing singers that sound like house music to me… 🤷🏼‍♂️https://t.co/D3UQc8vWFx

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) November 12, 2018

Will he do festivals again? Yes.

Yeah absolutely, one day, I was just craving studio time…I had some things I really needed to do (funk wav for example) https://t.co/AdRuZZ4Ufl

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) November 12, 2018

Would he go back to live music performances? No way.

No way I’m 34 now
Yes basically was trying to be like LCD and Mylo ended up worse than both but I improved with time 😉https://t.co/GZRT12mjkQ

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) November 12, 2018

Music theory? Not for him.

I learned from listening to a lot of it. Music theory always feels (to me) like trying to explain something magical that often happened by accident after the fact and takes the soul away from it. I’m also a bit stupid so it’s probably a bit of that too https://t.co/jau37ANAvI

RL Grime Unleashes Amazing New Collab With Graves During Live Set [WATCH]

RL Grime has teamed up with another trap sensation, Graves, to deliver on a brand new, standout collaboration. The two already worked together on his successful sophomore album NOVA and it came as no surprise when Graves joined on to support the NOVA tour. Now, we get to hear the amazement of “Never Let Go.”

The unreleased track was unleashed at RL Grime’s show in Melbourne over the weekend and it served as a true grand finale. Both artists, known for their theatrical fusion of trap and future bass, blend perfectly together for an otherworldly result. Naturally, the crowd went off for this stunning new collaboration.

While this might not be the best audio quality, it definitely gets the point across. RL Grime and Graves have struck gold with their forthcoming production. Let’s just hope for an official release sooner than later.

Dr. Ozi Drops Heavy New Tune “Pitchforks & Fire” On Never Say Die [PREMIERE]

Dr. Ozi is one of the few producers still putting out the style of dubstep that I enjoy, so whenever he drops some new fire, I make sure to take notice. This week, he’s out with a new 2-track EP on Never Say Die and we’ve got the premiere of “Pitchforks & Fire” from the release.

“Pitchforks & Fire” is full of suspense from the get-go, utilizing modulated horns with synths and stabs to create a feeling of anticipation and intensity. The drop hits with a series of unavoidable bass stabs, but it’s only a few seconds later that it grows even more in chaotic sound. Of course, it’s Dr. Ozi we’re talking about here…

third drop ups the ante even further, introducing some truly insane sound design into the mix, placing an end cap on an already wild tune. It’s a crazy ride from start to finish.

Check out “Pitchforks & Fire” below!

[WATCH] Keith Urban Performs Cover of Tiesto’s ‘Jackie Chan’ at Barclay’s Center

If you were at Keith Urban’s show at the Barclay’s Center a couple weeks ago, you may have recognized a catchy tune from Tiesto. During country artist Keith Urban’s show, he performed a short cover of Tiesto and Post Malone’s hit song “Jackie Chan”. Pretty unexpected coming from a country show, but Urban pulled it off perfectly in front of thousands of fans. From the video provided below, it sounded like the crowd knew the lyrics just fine and even enjoyed the country twist!

Nowadays, the electronic scene is always changing directions, taking on new crossovers with other genres in the music industry. Whether it’s country, rap, rock, or even classical music as seen in Creamfields’ Kaleidoscope Orchestra this year, we’ve seen it done. While not all of these experimentations work, it means that artists are open to exploring new mixes to keep the EDM scene fresh and alive. Obviously, true fans know this was not the first time we’ve seen a crossover of country and EDM. Music legend Avicii, unarguably made a huge impact with “Wake Me Up”, combining Country/Folk in the EDM scene. Who knows, maybe we’ll see a Keith Urban/Tiesto collaboration later this year or 2019!

Take a look at the short clip below from Urban’s show at the Barclay’s Center!

Dimitri Vegas Will Voice Peter Parker’s Character in New Spider-Man Film’s Dutch Edition

After years of listening to your favorite DJ’s podcast, hearing them grab the mic during their sets, and listening to their interviews, many dedicated followers have come to know the voices of their most-loved musicians, some without even realizing it.

In the new Spider-Man film, christened Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Dimitri Vegas‘ fans in the Netherlands will recognize Peter Parker‘s voice. This is because the Belgian producer has been tapped to voice the dubbed version of the movie. Also lending their voices to the Dutch dub are Jenne Decleir, Koen De Bouw, Alex Agnew, Laura Tesoro, and William Boeva.

In the past, Dimitri Thivaios, better known by his stage name Dimitri Vegas, has expressed his admiration of the Spider-Man brand. Not to mention, he has also collaborated with Disney to create a limited-edition themed clothing line. Trust us, we’re upset that we missed the opportunity to purchase an item (or many) too!

“It is a great honor to be able to design and release this Spidey collection,” Dimitri Vegas stated. “My 12-year old self would be proud!”

You can watch the official trailer for the new Spider-Man film below!

Mastadon – Death Pit

Mastadon Death Pit

Mastadon – Death Pit

At just 17 years old Australian producer Mastadon is definitely younger than most. But with over five years of producing experience along with a natural knack for producing he’s definitely better than most. And with already two EP’s released this year, he’s wasting no time in establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with. Today he’s looking to continue his hot streak with the release of ‘Death Pit‘ on Never Say Die‘s esteemed Black Label.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of enjoying one of Mastadon’s tracks before then there’s no chance you won’t enjoy this track. Super heavy from start to finish yet super technical at the same time, he definitely brings his A-game with ‘Death Pit’. Definitely give Mastadon’s latest heater a listen and be sure to grab your own copy  in the link below.

From deep house to dance-pop, Dutch producer Steve Void does it all with style. With his experience and vision (as well as weekly releases) it’s only natural that his Strange Fruits label would be excelling as much as it is so far this year. And for this week’s release he’s teaming up with Canadian producer and Strange Fruits veteran Midsplit to release a fresh new piece entitled ‘Paranoid‘.

Gorgeous from start to finish, Steve Void & Midsplit have definitely outdone themselves with this track.
