Y2K & lil aaron – DAMN (Kulkid & Honest Vision) [Homerun House] [Free DL]

DAMNNNN. This is fire. Y2K and lil aaron’s collaborative single “DAMN” really took off with its quirky lyrics and infectious melodies, but it’s this remix by Kulkid and Honest Vision that really has me buzzing.

The two producers employ a lot of vocal chops and edits alongside a mellow-piano driven lead to warm up the intro before we’re really thrown a loop with a gorgeous breakdown about one minute in. This track just screams danceable playful internet fun to me in a way that all of the other 100 remixes of “DAMN” haven’t yet. Stream it below for some good vibes and grab a free DL here.

These two remixers are right. This track isn’t just your regular remix, its a whole new vision.

BREAKING: Calvin Harris & Taylor Swift Break Up

Though their relationship seemed perfect on the surface, it seems that some underlying roughness has resulted in Calvin Harris & Taylor Swift breaking up.

The news was first reported by People, and corroborated by Billboard.

The two were dating for 15 months and just called it quits. They celebrated their one-year anniversary not too long ago on a tropical island, and Taylor Swift was also seen supporting Calvin Harris in a big way at Coachella – even helping to tease his latest release with Rihanna. Despite being the now former richest couple in music, things don’t always work out.

But the fact remains…

Calvin Harris & Taylor Swift have broken up!

Paul Van Dyk Will Return For Dreamstate At EDC Vegas

Paul Van Dyk has finally announced his anticipated return to the stage after a severe back injury, and what better place to perform than at EDC Vegas for the Dreamstate takeover on Sunday.

After mis-stepping during an ASOT show in Utrecht back in February, Paul Van Dyk fell from an elevated platform, cracking a vertebrae and sustaining a concussion. We couldn’t be happier to share the news of his recovery, and that he’s returning to good health after a few months of rest.

It’ll prove a fitting return for the trance legend, as circuitGROUNDS will be boasting some massive upgrades, including a 360 degree stage design. For more information on EDC Vegas, click here.

Featuring vocalist Satica, “Youth” has already climbed to #1 on the HypeMachine charts thanks in part to the gorgeous melody and a familiar sample that Moving Castle/Manila Killa fans may recognize.

Listen To This Unofficial Deadmau5 Album

Between a constant online presence, brand new studio build, a bus tour, and manning a label, deadmau5 has been keeping pretty busy this year. However, the mau5 has been promising an album sometime this year, and now that we’re nearly half-way through 2016, some of us are getting a little antsy.

One YouTube user has just uploaded a continuous mix of deadmau5′ unreleased material that’s been featured on SoundCloud and various streams. Including a full tracklist, this is a more comprehensive endeavor than we would have expected, not to mention the track order’s intelligently curation as well.

A while ago, deadmau5 tweeted that he had six tracks left to finish for the upcoming album. That seems like a decent amount, but judging by his workflow and how much material he has to pull from, the new LP is likely to come sooner than later.

Tracklist:

01. Imaginary Friends (Original Mix) 0:00
02. gg (Original Mix) 7:30
03. Chimaera (Original Mix) 14:05
04. No Problem (Original Mix) 17:10
05. Saved (Original Mix) 24:02
06. Sellout (Original Mix) 33:05
07. Whelk Then (Original Mix) 38:50
08. 4ware 01 (Original Mix) 43:25
09. Beneath With Me (ft. Skylar Grey) [Original Mix] 51:24
10. Nvidia (Taken from his Livestream) 57:24
11. The City (deadmau5 Remix) 01:01:50

Matthew Koma Weighs In On Attendee Deaths In The Philippines

In the wake of last week’s deaths at the Philippine CloseUp Summer Festival, vocalist and DJ Matthew Koma has come out with his own thoughts about drug use in relation to the global dance music scene. In a press conference held with InterAksyon and others that followed his performance at club Chaos Manila on Friday, Koma described the needlessness of substances to enhance the experience of live events.

“I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I never have so I think there’s a way to be a part of it without having to do that sort of stuff and still completely enjoying it just in a different way. . . It’s not worth it in that respect especially when you hear stories like that and people losing their lives over it. It’s just heartbreaking and it’s silly.”

Koma said that despite having friends and family who drink, the perception of the EDM atmosphere being one of complete disregard for responsibility or moderation is far from the truth. He said he doesn’t find issue with using substances to a certain and safe degree, but that nothing worth losing a life over.

“I think that association probably is a bit of a misinterpretation at times because I do have a lot of friends in music who don’t party to that degree. . . It’s just about being comfortable with doing whatever works for you and doing it to a degree that is safe and mindful because none of it is worth losing a life over…not to a point where indulging becomes detrimental to your health. Everything in moderation.”

Even though the tragedy in the Philippines is something that weighs heavily on him, Koma said that it remains one of his favorite countries to perform in.

“I’m just happy to be here. I’ve always had an enthusiastic crowd, always been so super supportive since the very beginning especially online and on Twitter and being here, I also get to meet some of those people face to face.”

Rootkit – Strung Out [Monstercat]

I remember when Muzzy noted one time that drum & bass producers often find themselves expanding into other genres and making music even better than those genres’ regular producers do. The only thing I could think of at that time was Rootkit, and is transformation into a house producer. Just two months after his Monstercat debut “Do It,” Rootkit’s style took a radical shift into the club scene with “Real Love.” Since then, he has become pretty well-known as a house producer, even being picked up to do some big remixes for Tritonal and Karma Fields.

While Rootkit has had some big surprises over the last few months (including the infectious “Concrete Jungle“), nothing has come quite as surprising as “Strung Out,” the final single from Monstercat 027 – Cataclysm. It’s easily one of Rootkit’s best works to date, slightly reminiscent of his last two singles – “Elevate” and “Concrete Jungle” – but able to clearly stand on its own. Its drop is hard and raw, probably Rootkit’s filthiest to date. So filthy, in fact, that it spawned this hilarious YouTube comment:

Diplo Confirms First Major Lazer Single From New Album Will Feature Justin Bieber & MØ

When we first heard that Major Lazer would be making back-to-back albums in 2015 and 2016, it was a little hard to believe. Peace Is The Mission did so well commercially, not to mention the massive hit that “Lean On” has become, they could have waited another couple of years if they wanted to. Instead, Diplo & co. have decided to capitalize on that hype and drop another album, due out later this year.

However, first, we have a new single coming out this summer, “in a couple weeks” according to Diplo, from the new album. This single will feature MØ and Justin Bieber, in what we’re affectionately calling “Lean On Ü Now” – just kidding, the official title is “Cold Water.”

Unfortunately, Diplo leaves us with just that news and not even a snippet of the track. But we’re sure that it’s going to pop up in the next couple of weeks, anyway.

@diplo @MAJORLAZER it’s happening
