Zedd Goes Deep For New Remix Of His Own “365” with Katy Perry

As I wrote yesterday, Zedd is pop. But I also said we might be getting a more EDM side to him on his new remix for his own “365” with Katy Perry — and I was right. In fact, more than I initially thought.

This isn’t True Colors-Zedd, this isn’t even Clarity-Zedd, this is a side of Zedd we’ve never seen before as he goes deep house on “365.” With pitched down vocals and a wide, ambient atmosphere, Zedd takes “365” from the main stage to the club bassment. It’s super vibey and minimal, which are not adjectives I’d ever think to use describing Zedd’s music, but… here we are.

Zedd’s remix below actually instills hope in me again that Zedd hasn’t completely abandoned his EDM roots. The wait for Z3 may not be over yet, but it’s likely it will be an acceptable mix of pop and dance hits.

Check out the rest of the remixes on the “365” remix pack below.

South African Producer Daniel Baron Sues David Guetta Over His Song “Light Headed” With Sia

South African artist Daniel Baron has filed a legal suit against David Guetta for copyright infringement, alleging that Guetta copied elements of his 2016 single, “Children of The Sun.”

Guetta released “Light Headed” with Sia in 2017 as a single from his album 7 which came out the following year. Baron alleges that, when Guetta played Ultra South Africa in 2017, it’s likely that he heard “Children Of The Sun” on the radio, during the height of its popularity.

Baron went onto the the South African radio show Breakfast with Martin Bester to speak about the situation and offer up some background to the lawsuit — it didn’t just come out of nowhere. The beginning of the interview includes a comparison between the two tracks — so judge for yourself.

Content hosted by iono.fm

Baron says in the interview:

“Guetta was playing at Ultra that year, so there is a high possibility that one of the other DJs played my song and he heart it. When I heard the song for the very first time, it was the craziest feeling ever. It was a mixture of shock, disbelief, and honor.”

He explains that he preferred to handle the situation privately at first, sending Guetta a formal legal letter about the situation in December 2018. When he didn’t hear back, he and his team started sending it to anyone who might get it in Guetta’s hands, even on his social media.

The letter asks Guetta to credit Baron and issue compensation for the use of his work.

Digital Music News writes, “Guetta’s label Warner Music has not commented on the legal tiff. Guetta also hasn’t acknowledged the dispute at all on social media.”

FIRST LOOK: Ultra’s New Main Stage On Virginia Key

Ultra Music Festival is officially ONE WEEK AWAY! With the full lineup out, set times revealed, hotels, shuttles, and ferries booked, we’re in the home stretch. One of the last things to do is construct the stages, and it looks like the main stage is well underway.

This drone shot shared by Everything Ultra and captured by @djjp305miami shows a crew working on the main stage, securing trusses and arranging electricals. The iconic Ultra “U” is already affixed at the top of the stage, but the remaining panels and bulk of the stage still remain.

Apart from the main stage, the drone shot also gives us a good look at all of the stages and the wonderful, lush nature of Virginia Key. It also puts into perspective just how massive Miami Marine Stadium really is. Various diagrams have already shown the difference between Bayfront Park and the Stadium area, but it’s truly an enormous difference.

It’s also harder for random passerby to get a good look at the stage or watch lighting demos, as the venue is on an actual island this time — the Miami EarthCam is also of no use this time around.

Check out the video below and get ready! Ultra is one week away.

Woah!! I’m definitely getting a #drone for next year! Thanks for making this @djjp305miami 🔥🔥🔥 #ultra2019 #ultramiami #ultramusicfestival #ultra #miami #droneporn

Odesza Reveal Date & Location Of Final “A Moment Apart” Show

Yesterday, Odesza worried and delighted fans with a teaser of their final A Moment Apart show. The duo has been touring the album since September 2017, and it just seems right to send it off with an epic finale.

Today, the date and location of the finale show has been announced: July 27 in Los Angeles at Los Angeles State Historic Park. The venue has seen only a couple EDM events since its renovation finished, including Zedd’s Zedd in the Park and HARD Day of the Dead last year.

The size of the venue and it’s simultaneously, deceivingly intimate nature seem like a fantastic send off to one of the greatest album tours in EDM. While fans are likely disappointed that it’s not at a more grand venue like Red Rocks or The Gorge, Odesza are sure to make anyone’s trip from out-of-state worthwhile.

Get more information and see the event page here. Tickets go on sale March 29 at 10 AM.

Flume Teases “More Shows And More Music”

Surely you didn’t think Flume would just drop his Hi This Is Flume mixtape and be done, right? Surely you didn’t think that he’d get announced for Lollapalooza and just head home, right?? We’re all terribly excited for Flume’s return and we don’t want it to end.

Minutes ago, Flume posted the Lollapalooza lineup, conveying his excitement to be at the head of the bill. But it’s the rest of the caption that has us wide eyed and dreaming: “more shows and more music to come…”

The decision to call Hi This Is Flume a mixtape, rather than an album (for which it clearly meets the requirements) sparked a lot of debate between industry professionals. The general consensus behind the reasoning was that there could even be another actual album due out in 2019 — the jury is still out on that, but at least now we know that there is more music coming.

Tickets to Lollapalooza are on sale now. Watch the visualizer for Flume Hi This Is Flume mixtape here.

Your EDM Premiere: Dirty Audio – West Coast ft. Karra

Compared to 2018, 2019 seems all around better. Whether there’s something in the air or not, a lot of artists are seriously stepping up their game and pushing new sounds and raising the quality of their tracks. Among them is Los Angeles-native Dirty Audio, who already started off the year with a bang.

Now, I’m extremely happy to premiere “West Coast” featuring Karra.

The beauty of this track is the juxtaposition between Karra’s delightful vocals and the absolutely gnarly drops that oozes filth and power. The vocals assume a more light-hearted, maybe even future bass drop. Instead, Dirty Audio hits you with the heavy bass and it knocks your breath out like a punch to the gut. Karra comes back in for another verse, but only before heading back into a second, even more intense drop…

Check out “West Coast” from Dirty Audio featuring Karra, out tomorrow on Thrive Music!

Check out Dirty Audio live at the following tour dates (including Miami Music Week): 
3/26 – MMW – ATLiens and Friends – The Hangar
3/27 – MMW – SMN All Stars – C&L Warehouse
3/28 – MMW – Deorro and Friends – Shoreclub Hotel
3/29 – Flagstaff, AZ

Madeon Teases New Live Show For Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza dropped a fantastic lineup yesterday with a slew of great headliners and an incredible undercard. Included in the lineup is Madeon, who was quick to specify that his set would be a Live one for the festival (as opposed to a DJ set at Porter Robinson’s Second Sky).

A fan on Twitter asked, perhaps blithely, if it was going to be a DJ set or a “new album live show,” and Madeon clarified that it would be a whole new show. Whether this points to new music or not — we think it does — is up for debate, but the fact remains that we’ll be seeing a side of Madeon never seen before come August.

New show

— Madeon (@madeon) March 20, 2019

Apart from “Shelter” with Porter in 2016, Madeon has not released any new music since his debut album Adventure in 2015. We’ve all been waiting with bated breath for new material, and it seems likely we’ll finally be getting something.

[EXCLUSIVE] Listen To Delta Heavy’s New Album, One Of This Year’s Best, A Day Early

Working in the music industry, and especially as a music blogger, it’s common for me to receive tracks, EPs, or even full albums early for review. Typically, these are sent to me perhaps days, or a week at most, in advance. I’ve had Delta Heavy’s new album, Only In Dreams, for three months. In that time, I’ve probably listened to it nearly once a day in full, if not at least a few tracks, and I’ve come to the conclusion that this album is one of the finest of the year.

Whereas Delta Heavy’s debut album, Paradise Lost in 2016, had no features and was relatively bright in tone and melody, Only In Dreams is a more true “album” in the sense of the word. Collaborations with Everyone You Know, Zeds Dead, Modestep, Muzzy, and more truly elevate the album and give it an extra dose of angst and replayability. There are also a lot of outside influences to be noticed on this album, like a taste of Nero on “Collide” or Pendulum (In Silico era) on “Anarchy.”

The addition of vocalists on Only In Dreams also just adds to the replayability of each song individually. Now, apart from the production, fans will have vocals to latch onto and remember — honestly there’s nothing like the crowd collectively yelling out the same lyrics at a show, vibing with the same energy, knowing you’re hearing your favorite song.

Delta Heavy manages to evolve and grow beyond their first album by leaps and bounds, keeping hold of their raw and pure sound, all while pushing it further. The rock and melodic elements incorporated in Only In Dreams, like in “Here With Me” and “Show Me The Light,” demonstrate an observable growth as artists that’s truly wonderful to see.

From start to finish, the album hardly gives you any time to pause or take a break. It lets you catch your breath occasionally, sure, but never becomes boring or encourages you to walk away and listen to something else. It’s engaging, enthralling, and highly enjoyable.

“We have spent the last few years constantly writing and releasing music, trying to delve deeper into the sound created with our first album ‘Paradise Lost’. For this project we wanted to continue that but also add something new into the mix and have collaborated with a number of talented artists who we respect and have helped push us to explore new avenues. We have always been so inspired by so many different influences and styles of music and we have injected all of this into the album to convey our musical journey. ‘Only In Dreams’ is a snap shot of where we have found ourselves after all this work and we’re really excited for it to be released.” – Delta Heavy

Only In Dreams from Delta Heavy is out tomorrow on Ram Records, but you can listen to it exclusively today on Your EDM below.
