The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” Gets Beat Out By “Despacito” for AMAs Favorite Pop Song

The 2017 American Music Awards highlighted some of the very best music and artists of the year, with many of the categories too close to call until the winning name was officially announced…

Favorite Song – Pop/Rock was one of those categories that could have gone any way. The Chainsmokers‘ hit song “Closer” featuring Halsey went up against Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s “Despacito” featuring Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You.”

In the end, “Despacito” came out on top — a well deserved win considering the Latin/American hit has been celebrated as one of the biggest global songs of all time.

For the 2017 AMAs, icons went head-to-head with newcomers and record breakers, to reveal the top picks in pop, rock, EDM, hip hop, and more. Congrats to The Chainsmokers, Lady Gaga, Linkin Park, DJ Khaled, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee and many more artists that celebrated wins tonight!

Marshmello Gets Interviewed At The AMAs & Promises A BTS Collaboration On The Way

Except for on the mic at shows, Marshmello is notorious for remaining quiet. (Just watch this slightly cringe interview with Radio Disney.) Still, that doesn’t keep him from doing interviews – he just answers the questions to the best of his ability, usually in yes/no form.

Marshmello was walking the red carpet this weekend at the AMAs in a dapper suit (unlike his usual white garb), and ended up into an interview. Through the course of the conversation, he responds only in nods or shakes of the head, or various hand gestures. He does get a couple questions about Selena Gomez:

Yes, she’s his favorite person to work with.
She’s the sweetest in the whole world.
His imitation of her seems to be something quite glamorous.
When it came down to the music video, it was still a collaboration.

He also promised to make a collaboration with KPop stars BTS happen by the end of the night, which would make him the fourth such dance music producer to work with them, after The Chainsmokers, Steve Ao..

Okeechobee’s Lineup Possibly Being Delayed By Eminem

Festivals generally drop their lineups around the same time every year. It’s how we know we should be getting an Ultra lineup sometime this month (at least phase 1), and we get Coachella’s lineup soon after New Year’s. So by that logic, Okeechobee’s lineup should have dropped by now, but… it hasn’t.

Lots of rumors and speculation have been going around as to the reason. Seasoned festival goer and a man with many sources in the festival circuit The Festive Owl says the festival isn’t in trouble, it’s just waiting on something or someone. The biggest rumor on that end seems to be that Okeechobee has booked Eminem for a headlining performance, but this rumor is entirely unconfirmed at this point.

So, what’s the hold up? No doubt we’ll find out before the end of the year, but for now we’ll just have to twiddle our thumbs and wait for that sweet, official announcement.

Lots of Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival questions being asked. Rumors are floating around of Eminem (UNCONFIRMED)…

Eric Prydz Releases New Track As Pryda, “Stay With Me”

Eric Prydz has finally released the “Psytrance ID” that fans have been waiting for since Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy in September, and it’s been well worth the wait. Though you could hardly actually call this psytrance, the track’s beats and melodies draw you in with hypnotic precision, like most of his music.

Prydz just released an entire EP as his mysterious alias Tonja Holma, but we know that Prydz likely has dozens and dozens of IDs and unreleased tunes piled up on his drives somewhere.

Check out “Stay With Me” below.

Live Review: Trip Hop Still Very Much Alive as Thievery Corporation Plays Two Sold-Out Shows in Solana Beach [Video]

As a publication which mainly covers large festivals all over the world or smaller venues in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Miami, some of the venues in the rest of the country can get overlooked by Your EDM. Likewise, many music fans have heard of the legendary Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach California, about 20 miles north of San Diego, but are not aware that the venue is a destination spot for many electronic and hip hip acts. Largely classed as a rock venue (by its own admission), the Belly Up has been right on the beach in Solana since 1972 but they don’t just have rock concerts. Almost every Friday they have live DJs for the Atomic Groove Happy Hour, but more importantly they host some of the coolest hip hop, EDM and crossover acts in the world.

One of the biggest shows which the Belly Up sees every year is the legendary trip hop group, Thievery Corporation. So well-attended is Thievery Corporation at the Belly Up, in fact, that the venue is usually the only stop on Thieve..

Joseph Capriati Played A 25h30m Set In Miami & Holy Sh*t

You’d never think of DJs as part of a subgroup of people who push themselves to their physical limit, but we’re here today to tell you you’re wrong. Techno DJs in particular are known for putting on some of the longest sets in the industry, but playing for over 24 hours is grueling and difficult.

Still, Joseph Capriati managed to play 25 hours 30 minutes this past weekend at Heart Nightclub in Miami.

According to Capriati himself, he came to the club with the intention of playing a marathon set, but surprised even himself when he just kept going and going… he also apparently broke his own personal record for longest set, however long that was

The 6 Best Big Shaq – “Mans Not Hot” Remixes On The Internet

It’s not everyday a song comes along and becomes such a phenom as “Mans Not Hot” — but Big Shaq delivers just that like skrrat, skidi-kat-kat, boom!

Man might not be hot, but he’s definitely getting plenty of remixes. Artists like Hairitage, Kafzon, Phil Phauler, Sad Meal, Stiekz and Tank Mode completely transform “Mans Not Hot” into new and exciting tings like, du-du-ku-ku-dun-dun, poom, poom!

Whether man wants to get down to bass house, dubstep, moombahton, or trap, there’s a “Mans Not Hot” remix for that on SoundCloud — and we’ve found the best out there.

Hairitage manages to build up a big trap beat with a drop as infections as Big Shaq’s lyrical performance. Kafzon and Phil Phauler both shape “Mans Not Hot” into four on the floor, danceable grooves. Sad Meal provides the signature, bass heavy dubstep track. Stiekz, an unexpected moombahton rhythm. And Tank Mode doesn’t hold back with the most relentless “Mans Not Hot” remix of all.

Two plus two is four, minus one that’s three,..
