Proximity Uploads Previously Leaked Skrillex Remix Of “Neoprene”

The Proximity channel has always been known to operate under its own sort of unique rules – that is to say, if the channel likes a track enough, it gets uploaded. That simple. It’s why there were so many uploads of Porter & Madeon remakes from their live show.

Similarly, it’s the reason why today there was a Skrillex remix of LH4L’s “Neoprene” uploaded. The track was first dropped back at Ultra Music Festival 2015, as far as we can tell, and it’s been floating around as a dubplate, ID, or leak ever since. It was used as a DJ tool for mixes, explaining the rather simplistic drop.

For whatever reason, Proximity decided to upload a rather high quality rip of the track to the channel today. Again, as far as we can tell, the upload isn’t sanctioned or supported by Skrillex in any fashion – there are no posts about it on any of his socials. And according to one user on reddit, this isn’t even an “official leak,” whatever that means, but a rip of a Snailed It mix.

That being said, it might..

Your EDM Premiere: Third Floor – Oceans

Australian artist Third Floor is definitely one to pay attention to. After a phenomenal EP last year, the artist has struggled with an autoimmune disorder, forcing him to focus more on his health than his music. Written in a time of emotional turmoil and hospitalization, “Oceans” is clearly an emotional song for the artist.

The spiritual sequel to his previous single “Can’t Do This Alone,” “Oceans” starts with off with a cinematic piano, slowly building into a downtempo disco groove. The combination of deep, emotional autotuned vocals and musical maturity in this track truly leave a lasting emotional impression on the listener – “Oceans” is a song that really makes you feel. Third Floor went above and beyond with this record, capturing and showcasing raw emotion through his writing.

Stream “Oceans” by Third Floor below! Download here.

Attendees Express Concern As Mud Causes Y Not Festival Cancellation

This was just not the best year for Y Not… The British music festival in Derbyshire experienced a mess when unexpected rain rolled in and turned the grounds into a complete mud pit.

“Unfortunately we’ve had to take the difficult decision to cancel Sunday due to the adverse weather conditions across the weekend, after consulting all the relevant authorities,” Y Not said in an official statement.

However, that didn’t seem to be enough for some of the music festival’s attendees. Many compared the festival to Glastonbury 2016 (which also experienced mud, but the show went on), and some took to social media to express their concerns…

Imagine a British festival that wasn't prepared for rain

Spotify Has Just Passed 60m Paid Subscribers

Back in early March, Spotify officially confirmed that it had reached the coveted 50 million paid subscriber mark. Shortly after in mid-June they officially announced that the total user base for Spotify was up to 140 million users monthly.

Now it looks like they’re really putting the pedal to the metal having confirmed today to Music Business Worldwide, just months after hitting 50 million paid, that they’re now up to 60 million paid monthly users. An incredible growth of 10 million paid subscribers in under 5 months.

With Spotify supposedly set to launch a direct listing on the New York Stock Exchange later this year the more subscribers they can bring onboard to help their IPO valuation the better.

Spotify is also supposedly set to have passed the 100 million free users mark as well in the last few months.
