16-Year-Old Dies After Being Electrocuted By His Headphones

A sixteen-year-old in Malaysia died of electrocution last week from the headphones he was wearing while listening to music. Reports from local news tell that the phone was plugged in and charging when the shock occurred; sixteen-year-old Mohd Aidi Azzhar Zahrin was found motionless on the floor, blood pouring from his ear.

An autopsy confirmed the cause of death, after determining there was no external injuries or other signs of foul plays, aside from burns to his ear. According to Zahrin’s brother, who touched the charging cable after finding his brother and receiving a small shock, the cable was probably faulty.

The make and model of the phone and headphones weren’t disclosed in the initial report.

In fact, this isn’t even the first headphone-related death in 2018. According to VICE, a “17-year-old student Luiza Pinheiro was similarly found dead on the floor of her home in Riacho Frio, Brazil after a ‘huge electric charge’ surged through her phone and the headphones melted in her ears[.]”

A 46-year-old woman in the Indian village of Kanathur, a 22-year-old man in the Indian village of Pandyo, as well as a 28-year-old Australian woman have been killed this year from faulty headphones or electric surges.

In the case of the Australian woman, the charger was found to be non-compliant with Australian standards and at fault in her death.

As for the Malaysian boy who died last week, an investigation is ongoing.

Marshmello Confirms ‘Joytime III’ & Even More New Music On The Way

Just this year, Marshmello unleashed Joytime II and now he’s already working on Joytime III.

“I’m working on so much new music right now,” Marshmello just took to Twitter to share an update. “Joytime 3, a couple hip hop, and my next pop single.”

He continues, “I don’t want to just stick to one genre, as a producer who loves making music nothing excites me more than pushing the boundaries.”

The masked producer took over the Billboard charts this year and there doesn’t seem to be a year-end list he’s not a part of. “Wolves” with Selena Gomez, “Silence” with Khalid, and “Happier” with Bastille are all amongst the most played on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for 2018.

Marshmello has already showed us his ability to produce EDM, hip hop, and pop, so we’re excited to hear the ways he pushes boundaries with his next string of releases.

Follow Along With Reddit’s Evolving List Of DJs Likely And Unlikely To Play Ultra 2019

Ultra Music Festival has been in the news a lot last month as it negotiated its new venue in Virginia Key. Yet, while all of that was going on, fans were more concerned with practical matters like where to get hotels, how they’d get to and from the festival grounds, and who is even playing the festival.

Ultra phase one lineups have been released as early as November in 2016 or as late as late-January in 2018, so there’s no reason to be unduly concerned just yet. And it’s almost certain that Ultra has already confirmed most of the acts who are playing even before the venue was secured.

But that doesn’t mean it’s too early to speculate, either. With some tour dates already having been announced for 2019, and radius clauses being what they are, there’s already a growing list of artists who would be very unlikely to play Ultra in March. At the same time, there’s the usual group of DJs who come back year after year and would be unlikely to not play. And then there’s the ones who could play, but who knows…

All of these DJs have begun to be compiled in a thread on Reddit, “ULTRA MIAMI 2019: Confirmations, Predictions and Outs.” The list is still being updated even 14 hours after it was initially posted as commenters add their own guesses and names to the mix, and as more regular spring tour dates from artists are revealed.

See the list below and let us know if you think they’ve missed anyone!

WHIPPED CREAM Plays With Our Emotions In “LUV” Music Video [MUST WATCH]

WHIPPED CREAM is an artist that grows exponentially with every single release. Not superficially, like with streaming numbers for example, but internally. As an artist, Caroline Cecil aka WHIPPED CREAM is constantly evolving and we can’t keep our ears off her work.

The producer’s latest, “LUV” is a prime example of her growth as a creator and her untamed path as she hacks her own way through the scene with a machete. The fierce mix of dark hip hop and bass music will keep you guessing for an abrupt 1:48, but that’s all the time WHIPPED CREAM needs to get her point across.

“I combined sounds and grooves from stuff I listened to when I first got into electronic music and put it all together into one piece of work,” she explains. “You think you know my sound? Think again. This piece is to leave my listener with questions and wanting more.”

Mission accomplished. With piercing visuals to match the harsh tone of “LUV,” WHIPPED CREAM unveils her own vision for the track. It’s surreal and moody, with the “strangeness of Bjork and the playfulness of Alice in Wonderland.”

The official music video is insane, but “LUV” will do that to you. Watch here!
