Zeds Dead Release New Single With Dion Timmer Featuring Delaney Jane, “Rescue”

It’s been a relatively light year for Zeds Dead so far on the release front, apart from their collaboration on Delta Heavy’s album, “Lift You Up.” But now, well into May, the duo are here with their first lead single of 2019, with some help from Dion Timmer and Delaney Jane, “Rescue.”

The sound on “Rescue” is immediately reminiscent of the sonic styles the group explored on their debut album Somewhere Else in 2014, sort of a mix between “Lights Out” and “Stardust.” Delaney brings her own vibe to the release with her instantly recognizable voice, and Dion Timmer adds a little weight to the drops, but this sounds like a classic Zeds Dead tune as much as it can be.

“Rescue” is out now via Deadbeats! Listen below.

Kanye West Pulls “Church Merch” Clothing Line After Backlash

Kanye West has reportedly made a small fortune on his “Church Merch” sportswear line, inspired by the Lord and his own Sunday Service performance at Coachella. However, after receiving backlash from fans, the online store has been taken down.

Rocking statements like “Trust God,” “Holy Spirit” and “Jesus Walks,” the pricey clothing line received praise from some fans and extreme disapproval from others — including his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner.

“In the short time that Kanye had the items for sale on his personal site, they made a fortune and sold out,” according to a source close to the family.

“That isn’t to say that they may be back in the future, but Kris had a complete meltdown when people started accusing her and her kids of trying to make money off the Lord’s name.”

Either he took the clothing down for moral reasons — or Yeezy simply sold out.

San Holo Announces New Song With Las Vegas Billboard

Earlier today a few eagle-eyed EDC Las Vegas-goers spotted what appears to be a brand new billboard just off the freeway highlighting none other than a confused-looking San Holo. The billboard was pretty succinct and only featured the words “Lost Lately” with a phone number below. Of course, doing what any reasonable people would do, we called the number as soon as we could.

Calling the number took us to a voicemail from San himself where he talked about feeling ‘lost lately’ and how that had inspired him to create a song, aptly titled “Lost Lately” which he would release on June 13th before fading into a short preview. There’s also a bitbird logo on the billboard which leads us to believe that the song will be released on San’s own label once again. Unfortunately other details on the song remain scarce for now but what we do know is that June 13th is coincidentally also the date of San’s debut Red Rocks show so that’s something to keep in mind.

Call the number for yourself here: +1 818 593 8499 and if you’re around for EDC be sure to check out his set at Kinetic Field on Sunday evening.

Dotcom Announces His Return, New Collab Out Friday

It’s official: the return of Dotcom is near.

He’s been busy dominating the scene as his more widely and wildly popular alias Marshmello. However,  Christopher Comstock is ready to bring it back to his roots by reviving his old project. He hasn’t released as Dotcom since 2015, when Marshmello first began.

On May 17 (this Friday) Dotcom returns with a new collaboration, “Gang Shit” featuring Lil Toe. So far, all we have is a visual element — the cover art for the single, shared in the post below.

It’s been three years since we’ve heard any music from the producer as Dotcom. Soon enough we’ll know what Dotcom sounds like in 2019.

“ARE YOU READYYYY,” Dotcom builds the hype of his highly anticipated return.

New Dotcom Coming Friday

Pioneer DJ’s Newest Controller Is Hella Cheap & Made For Streaming

Pioneer DJ‘s latest entry-level controller is the most affordable option yet! (Note: Pioneer DJ is still around for now.)

The DDJ-200 is not only priced at $149/£139 — it links with streaming services including SoundCloud Go+ and Beatport LINK. So, beginner DJs can save money on music, too.

The new controller is designed to run straight from your smartphone using Pioneer DJ’s WeDJ app. However, the DDJ-200 can also adapt to a more traditional setup with a laptop and music files.

The DDJ-200 is one of the first controllers to push streaming and app-driven operations. Pioneer has partnered with Serato, Native Instruments, Virtual DJ and Mixvibes to making streaming options readily available for up-and-coming DJs.

Streaming is the future — and this may be a sure sign of where the industry is headed. Still, it will probably be long before DJs give up their trusty USBs altogether.

Your EDM Premiere: Blake Webber, KA5SH, Ushi Qute – Weird Flex But OK

Just in time for what is sure to be a wild art car experience at EDC, voice over comedian and social media influencer Blake Webber is dropping a new song full of cultural references ranging from the ’00s up to today with the title, “Weird Flex But Okay.” No matter which era of the internet you grew up with there is bound to be something in the video that reminds you of childhood. Whether it’s the “walking the dog” yo-yo trick at the beginning, the references to Kylie Jenner, Harry Potter Hypogryphs, or Fyre Fest, there is bound to be something in the video that will bring you back and make you laugh. For me, the best throwback was actually right in the opening lyrics. I don’t know if “Oh my god Ka5sh look at that flex” is supposed to sound like a reference to “Oh my god Becky look at her butt,” but as someone who grew up singing along to Sir Mix A Lot long before it was age appropriate, it caught my attention.

The video also features EDM vocalist Kaleena Zanders under the alias Ushi Qute (ooh she cute) and was produced the lovely VenessaMichaels who drops in for a cameo. Check out the brand new music video below and I dare you to not get the lyrics stuck in your head.

For those of you getting ready to head out to EDC, be sure to check out the Wide Awake Art Car on Sunday at 3:30 AM. Blake’s EDM project, Double Dare, will be throwing down for some crazy and kooky fun. You can also check out more of Kaleena when she drops in during Bijou’s set at stereoBLOOM to perform.

During his visit, Garrix performed a one-hour DJ set to a  crowd of one hundred children and young people, some aged just three years old and accompanied by their SOS mothers.

First Responders: Hydration Essential At EDC Despite Lower Temperatures

Paramedics are readying for Electric Daisy Carnival — and attendees must be prepared, too.

The music festival goes down this weekend, May 17 -19 in Las Vegas. Although temperatures will be cooler than in many years past, hydration concerns remain ever-present.

Community Ambulance Director of Special Operations, Glen Simpson, urges EDC attendees to stay hydrated. That means drinking lots of water, and also staying fed while you’re out at the festival.

EDC has been known to take place with temperatures reaching into the 100s. This weekend, the forecast for Las Vegas is looking much cooler, between mid 70s and low 80s. While it might feel more comfortable, you’re still going to be out there for hours and hours dancing, and it’s important to pay attention to what your body is telling you it needs.

If you’re going out to EDC — pace yourself, get plenty of rest, look out for each other — and most importantly, stay hydrated out there.
