Ghastly Blasts “POS” DJ Who Should Not Be Trusted

In an industry full of creative minds and individual personalities, we can’t expect everyone to get along. Now, it appears some sort of bad blood has run between two popular artists in particular.

Ghastly‘s claws are out. The cryptic message below, tweeted and soon deleted, calls it like he sees it.

“Dear anyone who is in the dance music industry — do not trust a guy who’s name starts with an E and rhymes with piece of shit Kali.”

If you didn’t put that together already, we’ll spell it out for you: Ekali. The question on everyone’s minds is simply “y tho.” Ghastly followed up with a reply, reiterating his statement.

“Trust me and 15 other djs who all just had this conversation.”

While we’re always up for some good quality Twitter beef, it seems the untrustworthy “POS” has yet to respond, at least via social media. What’s going on, guys?

Having both released on OWSLA, both with enthusiastic co-signs from Skrillex, you have to wonder what caused this. In fact, one of Skrillex’s bes..

Snapchat Takes Photo Sharing To The Next Level By Letting Users Create Their Own Filters

Snapchat is taking its social platform to the next level by getting its users more involved with the filter designs!

The photo and video sharing app has rolled out over 3,000 of its own filters to date, and now the company is opening it up to any and all creative minds. If you have a vision, a computer, and some spare time, you can now design your own snap filters and share ’em with friends.

Lens Studio allows its users to construct, edit, and even animate 3D figures using Blender or 3ds Max, and import data that Snapchat can easily interpret. Unique “Snap Codes,” basically the app’s own version of a QR code, allow you to use the lens, share, and go wild with imagination. The best part? It’s all free.

As cool as this all is, Eitan Pilipski, VP, of the camera platform team promises there is more to come: “We want to emphasize that this is just the beginning. We want to put it out there and learn.”

The delightful filter of the unicorn below is just one small example of the endless po..

Don Diablo Unleashes “You Can’t Change Me” Ahead of Future Tour

Don Diablo is ending the year with a bang — which for him means dropping yet another amazing dance anthem!

The producer’s latest, “You Can’t Change Me” plays with deeply intriguing electro melodies, with a big sound that somehow still feels very intimate. While can imagine this song booming out loudly from any mainstage, the song plays just as well in the off season as we long for those festival vibes.

Don Diablo, keeps it short and sweet in teasing the track: “BANG! ENDING the year with something special for you guys! My new single is out everywhere now: http://tinyurl.com/YouCantChangeMe #Future.”

“You Can’t Change Me” sets the pace for what the future holds, as Diablo plans to embark on his North American Future Tour with special guest Lost Frequencies. From LA, to Chicago, to NYC the Future Tour will soon take 2018 by storm.

There’s something truly special about about this one — and we wouldn’t want Don Diablo to change a thing! Listen here!

“Something Just Like This” Just Went 6x (!!) Platinum In Australia

Getting a platinum record is probably one of the hardest feats in music to accomplish. Now just try to imagine going 6x platinum on a record in one country. Grammy-nominated “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay just hit that mark after previously achieving multiple-platinum certification statuses in two other countries.

This week the single achieved the ridiculous mark of 6x platinum certification in Australia after it crossed the 420,000 sale mark. Earlier in the year, the record peaked at #2 on the Australian charts.

Elsewhere in the world the song has achieved 7x platinum status in Sweden and 3x platinum in the United States.

(Note: Platinum Record status varies by country. ARIA only requires 70,000 sales for platinum, whereas RIAA requires 100,000.)

EDM has officially made its way into the mainstream for 2017, as The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Calvin Harris, Kygo, Zedd and Cheat Codes all have releases in the top 50 most played songs of the year via Amazon Music Unlimited!

2017’s Biggest Song Meme Just Got An Official Remix Pack

What a world we live in. The biggest meme song of 2017 just got an official remix pack that rolls 7 songs deep, plus an instrumental so any producer can put their spin on “Man’s Not Hot.”

The stupidly popular song, originally made popular by English rapper Michael Dapaah aka Big Shaq is one of the most ridiculous, but also satisfying songs we’ve heard in recent history. So much so that we made our own list of bootlegged remixes (check ’em all out here).

As for the official remix pack, there’s a little bit of everything from HIGHSOCIETY, Dirty Palm, Black Caviar, and more. Just be aware, it’s hard to take any of them too seriously with lyrics like “skrrat, skidi-kat-kat, boom” and “du-du-ku-ku-dun-dun, poom, poom!” But then again that’s exactly why Big Shaq’s viral song is so addictive in the first place.

Man’s not hot, but he has a shit ton of remixes! Indulge yourself!

Here Are The Most Googled Songs, Artists & Albums of 2017

Google‘s “Year in Search” reveals much about our our ear’s desires and the music we craved in 2017, and looking back it’s been a damn good year.

Mainstream clearly took control of our Google searches, mainly with pop and hip hop genres. Taylor Swift reigns with the most searched album for her good-girl-gone-bad album Reputation. Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Logic, and Drake follow behind to round out the top five proving this was a huge year for hip hop.

Linkin Park comes up as the most searched of all musical artists. The deeply unfortunate death of frontman Chester Bennington sparked a newfound appreciation for the band and all they have done to pave the way for artists of all genres. Cardi B and Lil Pump are runners up as some of the most talked about artists in the rap game.

Finally, we come to the most searched songs of 2017. “Despacito” takes the number 1 spot as the track captured the attention of Googlers (is that a thing? Well, now it is.) as a true global phenom in 2017. “Humble..

Your EDM Reader Poll: Paris Hilton or DJ Pauly D? [RESULTS]

Sorry, not sorry. We had to ask the question — DJ Paris Hilton or DJ Pauly D?

The reality stars both skyrocketed to fame in their own right, and have cultivated a circuit of shows and club appearances that work well with their party lifestyles.

So, Foam and Diamonds or GTL? While no one really likes to admit whether they prefer one or the other, we couldn’t resist hearing you all out with this one. Heiress Paris Hilton only came up with 38% votes while DJ Pauly D scored 62% of votes for an easy victory.

While some commenters questioned Paris Hilton’s DJ skills, others questioned who DJ Pauly D even was. So, we’re not 100% sure if people were voting for Pauly D or against Paris Hilton…

Note to all those who seemed to be offended at this poll: this is all clearly just for fun and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Y’all Can Just Nevermind About That Destiny’s Child Reunion at Coachella

It’s time we crush all the hopes and dreams of Destiny’s Child fans. This speculated reunion at Coachella is most definitely not happing.

Recently, fans came into a frenzy with this wild notion that the 90s girl group would perform at the California music festival in 2018. However, sources directly connected to Beyoncé, who is set to headline the Coachella, have shot down the rumors that Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett will join her on stage.

Beyoncé’s fanbase, known as the Beyhive has a way of getting hyped about the possibility of any type of reunion, especially since Destiny’s Child did join forces at the Super Bowl a few years back. We have to admit, they even had us going for a minute.

TMZ puts it best, “Say their names all ya want … it ain’t happening.”
