Your EDM Premiere: RAL – Perspective [Lowtemp Music]

Gramatik’s Lowtemp label has a great track record of putting out some great music, and that trend continues with the latest EP from RAL.

Perspective is a mesmerizing, 6-track journey of strange beats, introspective melodies and wildly discordant synths that all culminate in an engrossing listening experience. From the low pitched vocal melodies of “Sphinx” to the soft piano notes of “Interrelated,” there’s a little something for every taste.

Gryffin & Illenium Release Their New Collaboration With Daya, “Feel Good”

Gryffin & Illenium have teamed up with Daya on this absolutely incredible track that will make you feel all the feels… Well, just the good ones.

“Feel Good” is synthy and daydreamy, with a bold, addictive beat that will inevitably have you moving. The melody and lyrics are effortless and relatable, making for the kind of track that gets stuck in your head all day.

This work seriously sounds like a little piece of heaven, and has us wondering how the hell we were living without it in our lives before today?!

In the wake of a whimsical build, Daya belts out:
“Take my hand in the middle of a crisis
Pull me close, show me, baby, where the light is
I was scared of a heart I couldn’t silence
But you make me, you make me feel good, I like it”

By then end of the song you’ll most definitely be screaming out, “You make me feel good!”

Listen here and let us know what you think!

The Chainsmokers Just One-Upped Themselves

Love ’em or hate ’em, The Chainsmokers are making chart-topping history.

“Paris,” the duo’s 5th single to hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electric Songs chart, beat out their own “Closer” for the top spot after a 27-week run.

So, they basically just one-upped themselves.

Not only that, The Chainsmokers’ collab with Coldplay, “Something Like This,” debuted at #6 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs .

For those of you counting, The Chainsmokers also reached #1 success with “#SELFIE,” “Roses,” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”

Their first studio album, Memories… Do Not Open, drops April 7th and we’re sure there are plenty more #1’s in store for these guys.

Snap IPOs, Closes First Day Of Trading Up 44%

Venice-based tech company Snap – parent company of Snapchat and Snap Spectacles – hit the market today with their IPO.

At the end of day one, Snap shares closed up 44 percent at a high price of $24.48 per share. According to CNBC, more than 200 million shares were exchanged throughout the day – “which is roughly 10% of the total volume of trading on the New York Stock Exchange.”

The shares, which were originally priced at $17 apiece but opened this morning at $25 per, were as expensive as $26.05 and as low as $23.50. The day closed with each share priced at $24.48, meaning that the company is now worth approximately $28 billion – putting its share price above giant public corporations including American Airlines and Macy’s.

Though this high share price does show the high interest in the company’s public offering and this marks quite an epic moment for the status of tech companies among other public companies, one question does remain: how long will this last? It’s important to consider the other competitors that could threaten Snap at this point, including Facebook (and Facebook-owned Instagram) and the Instagram stories and live video capabilities. Snapchat’s daily user numbers did drop once Instagram’s stories feature was introduced, a clear indicator that their user base can be easily swayed.

Keep an eye on these shares and ask yourself: will the momentum carry through, or will it disappear as fast as that 10-second Snapchat you’re about to send?

Dubset Raises $4 Million Dollars For Legal Distribution

The dance music occupying modern day airwaves has an overwhelming amount of sample-heavy songs, hours-long mixes, remixes, recorded live sets, mixtapes, and more. Artists take pieces of different music and put them together in a carefully curated original that they can call their own. However, many of these “unofficial” tracks made by up-and-coming artists and household names alike can’t get them on major streaming platforms due to record labels refusing the content to be distributed unless the people involved are getting paid the proper royalty fees. This “illegal” music has found a home on SoundCloud’s open and user based platform. It seems that things are going to start changing soon.

Music technology company Dubset received $4 million dollars of Series A funding led by early growth equity firm Cue Ball Capital, who focuses on recurring revenue platforms in business information services, digital media and specialty consumer opportunities. More investors involved in the funding were MediaNet, Joi Ito’s Neoteny 3, Resolute Venture Partners and Redwood Venture Partners.

What this round of funding means is that Dubset can now further their their MixBANK technology, which basically scans a song, identifies the original recordings being used, and pay the copyright holders and publishers, while also expanding their business ventures to credit the artists “legally.” In 2016, Dubset also struck deals with the some of the industry’s top distributors, Apple Music and Sony/ATV Music Publishing, meaning that this funding will also expand those deals to include more record labels and artists.

Dubset CEO Stephen White had a few things to say about the major investment that will move the company’s innovations forward:

“This year will be huge in opening up this ecosystem. We have some very big labels and publishers about to join.“[The $4 million dollar funding] allows us to scale operations to onboard the thousands of labels and publishers already signed up and get the rest on board.”

He continues to say that, “Cue Ball’s leadership in this investment round and strong participation from the music and venture capital community validates our approach and strong belief that artists deserve to be fairly compensated for the use of their content. DJs are the ultimate curators and hundreds of millions of music fans all over the world are hungry for their mixes and remixes. We look forward to being able to make this amazing content available at scale. Our investors are a diverse group that shares our belief that the music fans who love mix and remix content are a massively underserved audience who will benefit immensely from our work at Dubset.”

This is great news for artists who have not been getting paid for their hard work and dedication to the craft of curating music. The funding going towards Dubset is one of innovation and passion that can only be assumed to do good. Stay tuned for what happens next!
