Billie Eilish – Six Feet Under (Jerry Folk Remix)

It’s been awhile since indie-dance gangster Jerry Folk hit the remix trail, over a year to be precise, since then he’s been on an absolute tear putting out single after single. That said, his latest is a wispy, smoky take on one of my favorite singles of the year “Six Feed Under” by Billie Eilish.

With soft piano keys moving slowly between slow-moving synths and jersey-styled samples in the cut as well, Jerry Folk’s remix truly takes the attention off of production and thrusts Billie Eilish’s sparkling vocals firmly in the spotlight.

This Stranger Things X Starboy Mashup Is Everything You Need In Your Life

Alright, this is insane, and no, it’s not just a spiffy recreation like that of deadmau5. A YouTuber and producer by the name of flipboitamidl3s has done the unthinkable and combined the analog masterpiece of Stranger Things’ theme song with The Weeknd’s collaboration with Daft Punk, “Starboy.” Ingeniously titled “Stranger Boy,” this mashup is almost too good to be true.

The combination of these two gems just make too much sense. Both dive into the classic atmosphere of the 80’s and the music video even draws on the aesthetic used in the hit Netflix series. I’ll say no more, just feast your ears on the masterpiece below.

Thank you for making this a real thing, flipboitamidl3s.

Legendary Producer and DJ Jesse Rose is Retiring

As young as electronic music may seem compared to rock, hip-hop, jazz and other genres, its pioneers and founders are now reaching the point of old age. Not every producer and DJ can create and perform forever, and it’s always sad to see an icon decide to fold up the towel. The latest legend to retire from the dance music scene is Jesse Rose, a British producer and DJ who has been in the scene for the past 20 years.

Rose announced his retirement on a Facebook post, revealing that he’s decided to make his upcoming album Alright Mate his final album of his decade-spanning career. Rose’s reveal offered one silver lining: he will embark on a final DJ tour after Alright Mate releases in February 2017. Over his 20-year career, Rose led an episode of the Essential Mix, was added to the BBC Hall of Fame, mixed a Fabriclive compilation and much more. We’ve learned to never say never when it comes to musicians retiring, but for now Rose will be ending his legendary career next year.

Goa’s Sunburn Festival Application Is Being Held For ‘Ransom’

The famous Sunburn Festival in Goa, India, may still have a chance to hold this year’s event, but their event application is being held until they pay up on their security dues.

The Goa government has reminded the event’s organizers that they owe police 1.75 crore rupees (10.75 million) for security cover, which equates to around $161,000. Scheduled to take place from December 28th through the 31st, Sunburn is going all out for its 10th anniversary, but as the clock ticks down, this debt might start becoming more problematic

Goa’s Minister for Tourism has said that Sunburn’s event application to the Single Window Clearance Committee is still pending, and has not been rejected. The event’s massive draw for tourists is something Goan officials don’t want to throw away, but it seems they’re holding the application’s approval in a sort of ransom until the security dues are paid.

Boiler Room Says Goodbye To Its Chatrooms In Favor of Facebook

boilerBoiler Room announced yesterday via Twitter that they would be saying goodbye to their chatroom with a bittersweet, love/hate relationship note: “You were awful but we loved you (sorta).”

 

RIP BR chatroom, 2010 – 16

You were awful but we loved you (sorta)

— BOILER ROOM (@boilerroomtv) October 28, 2016

These chatrooms, which have played a significant role in the Boiler Room live experience, have brought a large amount of controversy to the site due to inappropriate and harassing comments, such as back in June when a female DJ received a number of sexist comments while she performed her set.

With the closing of the chatrooms, they plan to shift the opportunity for commenting to Facebook Live, where they have been streaming their sets as of late. They noted in a tweet to another Twitter user that “as so much conversation now takes place on fB, we figured that’s the way to go.”

 

everyone throw your toxic abuse at the DJs on Facebook instead, it’s where all the cool kids are at these days so we hear

— BOILER ROOM (@boilerroomtv) October 28, 2016

Want to take part in the action? Check out Boiler Room’s Facebook page here and watch one of their most recent broadcasted live sets, featuring two hours of music from UNIIQUE, Grandmixxer and Skinny Macho, below.

DJ Mag Offers DJs Chance to Buy Their Own Award Trophy

dj mag

The DJ Mag Top 100 contest has been ridiculed by many over the past few years, mainly for how it has become a popularity contest rather than an actual rating of quality of performers. With the #1 winners being the current biggest big room DJs like Martin Garrix and Hardwell, it’s clear that the rating is based on the amount of votes a DJ gets and not who is really at the “top” of DJing.

Either way, this has brought much scrutiny to DJ Mag, the company that puts on the contest. DJ Mag is now offering something more than just the Top 100 to DJs that has us scratching our heads. If you were voted into the Top 100 this year, you are apparently given the option of buying your own award.

DJ Mag sent out an email to the winners telling them they are offering replicas of the exact same award Martin Garrix received, but in a silver color instead. DJs have the option of having their name and “position” engraved on it. Laidback Luke posted this email to Instagram for everyone to see.

It will be interesting to see who suddenly wins an award now with this option.

Ha ha no thanks! But I’m curious to see if we see some top unknown names put one on Instagram LOL

Five Artists You Have to Catch at Pismocean This Weekend

In its first year, Pismocean is making waves in the boutique festival space by bringing an absolutely unreal lineup to play in the sand this weekend, November 4-6, at Pismo State Beach in Central California. With three days of house, techno, live bands and more, there are so many acts spread across two stages that will be ideal for a sunny afternoon, evening or sunrise on the beach.

With a beautiful list of names that will grace the beach’s presence this weekend, we had to pick a few of our favorites we’re looking forward to seeing.


five artists

Lee Burridge

Lee Burridge, a DJ hailing from the UK, has been mixing since 1984. Since then, he has grown to be one of the most well-known artists in the house and techno music scene. His first big break came in 1987, when he was turned on acid house music; from there, the rest is history. His label, All Day I Dream, was created in partnership with Matthew Dekay in 2011 and is known as for its prolific explorations in house and techno music. Burridge’s sunrise sets are one of the most captivating few hours of sound you’ll experience, so be sure to be ready to watch the sun come up with him on Sunday morning.

Lee Reynolds

Also originally hailing from England, Lee Reynolds is one of the founding fathers of tech house label Desert Hearts and a prolific DJ that keeps listeners grooving for hours. He is known for bringing the weird and the wonderful to the dancefloor and is truly one of the most magical live performers we’ve seen yet, mixing in an eclectic balance of house, techno, acid and breaks to his tunes. He plays Friday night from midnight to 2am.

 


five artists

The Naven Twins

The Naven Twins are a Los Angeles-based duo, Kym and Alexis McKay, that not only make music, but also are major girl bosses and entrepreneurs. New to the scene (their Soundcloud only dates to about a year ago), these two have dived into tech house with the perfect feminine touch.

 


five artists

DAVÍ

David “DAVI” Khanjian is another Los Angeles-based artist that has been hailed as “LA’s best kept secret.” As a DJ and producer, he began making music at the young age of 17 and has made a name for himself in the house and techno music worlds ever since. He became a resident DJ for Insomniac Events in Los Angeles in 2010 and can be found on labels including Rebellion, Anjunadeep, Treibstoff, Hope Recordings, and Baroque – as well as his own label, Crosstown Rebels.

 


 

five artists

Nico Stojan

Nico Stojan, an artist originally from Berlin, has his roots in hip hop music. Over time, however, the Berlin techno scene and a residency at bar25 shifted his music taste and track selection to house music, a genre in which he thrives today. His music today inserts influences and melodies of jazz and soul music as a result, creating an intriguingly beautiful sound appealing to house music loves looking for something to enjoy.

Cap Off Your Halloween Night By Watching One of Porter Robinson’s Gnarliest Drops Ever

porter

Porter Robinson has one of the most eclectic music abilities and range of genre-defying tracks in today’s music world. His newest album Worlds, which took fans and the music industry by storm, was one of the biggest shifts in taste for an artist we’ve seen in a long time and quickly pointed out that, regardless of what genre Porter decides to dabble in, it’s going to be good.

Though Worlds has a much lighter, mellow sense to many of its tracks, the artist still throws in some heavy, aggressively beautiful drops into his live sets – which, mind you, are just as much about the visuals are they are about the sounds – that have made our jaws drop. His live edit of “Fresh Static Snow” is one of those moments, known particularly for the deer head visuals that abruptly take over the screen during the set as the drop hits. The eery and somewhat disturbing visuals have continued to rock fans mid-way through Porter’s live sets, throwing a special twist into the mix that truly shakes you to the bone.

If you’re looking for a nice video to close off your evening, we recommend not watching. But if you’re ready for one of the most aggressive and impressive drops out there, check out the below.

I.Y.F.F.E X TYNVN – Hell Hound

I.Y.F.F.E X TYNVN – Hell Hound

Brazil’s rising bass music all star I.Y.F.F.E has ended his dry spell of releases this week in a very big way alongside TYNVN, just in time for the Halloween holiday turn up. Not too long ago he teamed up with Dirty Monkey to create “Little Gurl,” a fast-paced Breaks/Bass House anthem bound to get any rager’s engine going.

“Hell Hound,” his latest track, is an appropriate follow up and I.Y.F.F.E’s heaviest record to date. Its vibe is set off proper with an eerie melody/build up before the soaring monstrous drop is unleashed.

Make no mistake, TYNVN has also had a big year with recent releases on Dim Mak, Good Enuff and now Uprise Music. Make sure you keep an eye on both acts, especially I.Y.F.F.E, who has another equally as heavy release lined up for 11/4 (among many others) before the year ends!
