Did Another Producer Rip Off Jauz? Listen and Decide For Yourself…

Did Axel Boy copy Jauz?

It’s a question being asked on r/EDM — and with the similarities between “Claim to Be” by Jauz and the “Are You Serious” (Axel Boy Remix), it’s almost impossible to ignore.

“Claim to Be” and “Are You Serious” (Axel Boy Remix) start out entirely different. However, about a minute into each track the similarities can be heard loud and clear. The release from Jauz came over 2 months before the latter.

We always try to give producers the benefit of the doubt when it comes to cases like this. While it seems almost intentional, there could be a reasonable explanation — or it could even be a subconscious thing.

Listen to both tracks below, and let us know what you think.

Burning Man Looks To Expand Up To 100,000 People In 2019, Locals Express Concerns

Burning Man is looking to expand from about 68,000 participants up to 80,000 at least and 100,000 at most for future gatherings — but not everyone is too sure about the long-term expansion.

Currently, the festival in the Black Rock Desert is up for 10-year renewal by the Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and in order to be approved Burning Man must pass an environmental impact analysis via the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

In addition to the increase in participants, Burning Man asks for more space for the event — more than 500 more acres. With the potential expansion, organizers would expect more art installations, more themed camps, and more than 1,000 mutant vehicles on site.

BLM and Burning Man held a meeting this week with locals from surrounding areas of Gerlach, Reno and Lovelock to hear concerns about potential growth.

Some residents, like Karen Boeger of Reno, voiced their opinion: “I’m just concerned because, when I moved here 45 years ago, (the Black Ro..

Girl Group Fifth Harmony Covers Calvin Harris “Feels” [LISTEN]

The girls of Fifth Harmony have taken on Calvin Harris‘ “Feels” for a totally unexpected version of the funky EDM-infused hit!

Don’t be afraid to catch feels for this stripped-down flip of “Feels” recorded exclusively for Spotify. While the original off the producer’s Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 features a star-studded cast of artists — Pharrell, Katy Perry, and Big Sean — we have to say the girl power pop group holds their own just fine with harmonious vocals.

As one of the hottest acts in music, Fifth Harmony dabbles with EDM influencers including Steve Aoki and even Skrillex; and dare we mention ex-member Camila Cabello, who has worked with Major Lazer since moving onto her solo project.

We have a feeling this won’t be the last we hear of Fifth Harmony in the world of electronic music!

Grabbitz Gives His Track with Deadmau5 A Massive Edit for ‘We Are Friends, Vol. 7’ [LISTEN]

Grabbitz put a spin on his own popular track with deadmau5 — “Let Go” — and it’s a real treat!

Putting forth totally different vibes, Grabbitz takes the mix to a heavy place. Massive drum fills, dramatic sound design, and an extra synthy drop set this “Let Go” edit apart from the original. While the lyrics remain intact, Grabbitz builds an entirely new universe around the release.

“Let Go” (Grabbitz Edit) is one of 23 tracks on the mau5trap compilation We Are Friends, Vol 7 — out now. The entire album, which features new stuff from ATTLAS, BlackGummy, Monstergetdown, and more, is definitely worth checking out.



But back to this amazing version of “Let Go.” Grabbitz slowly eases into his edit but you gotta wait for it — there’s an unexpected, heavy twist that comes along and really makes a statement.

In addition, Grabbitz just announced his headlining U.S. tour! More info and tickets here.

2017 Top 10 Albums: #10-6

At the beginning of this year, I wasn’t sure what the album landscape was going to look like. Compared to the trifecta of 2014, 2015, and 2016, 2017 wasn’t looking to measure up. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, one by one… all these incredible albums started popping up.

I usually try to keep track as best I can of all the electronic albums coming out in a year, and by my count there are at least 100 this year of worth. (That means that I’ve probably also missed at least another 100 that either didn’t fit my genre tastes or just flew under the radar.) From Robin Schulz to Pierce Fulton to Walker & Royce to Troyboi, Tokimonsta, Paul van Dyk, RAC, Calibre, Barclay Crenshaw, ATB, Asa, Code: Pandorum, Four Tet, Gladkill, Gorillaz, and way, way more, each of these albums represented a moment in time for that artist.

These are our picks for the Top 10 albums of 2017… #10-6.

We will continue to drop one album per day until we reach our #1 album of 2017 so keep your eyes on our Twitter a..

Armin van Buuren Releases A Legit Christmas Carol Perfect for the Holidays [LISTEN]

Tis the season… Armin van Buuren just released a legit Christmas carol just as the holidays are kicking into high gear!

The producer transformed vocalist Josh Cumbee’s “Sunny Days” into a wintery rendition titled “Christmas Days” through his own label Armada Music. There is no pounding beat, no huge build, no satisfying drop. Don’t expect this to be anything other than pure Christmas magic.

“Christmas Days” showcases Armin’s ability to take an idea and execute it beautifully in just a short time. Even though he’s a true king of dance music, no genre or project is off limits.

Armin van Burren tells the story of how this track came to life within 24 hours:

“A few weeks ago, someone from the office asked me if I had ever toyed with the idea of turning ‘Sunny Days’ into a Christmas song. A DJ releasing a Christmas carol is not something that easily comes to mind, but when I listened to ‘Sunny Days’ afterwards, I discovered that the lyrics do have some of that Christmas magic going for ..

New Report Reveals Surprising Party City For “Best Night Out In The World”

Party people — where you at!? Well, if you’re in Hamburg, Germany then we know you’re partying the hardest!

A new report has found the small city of Hamburg to be the “it” spot for the partiers across the world. Dance music havens like HALO Club, Bahnhof Paul, and Baalsaal offer inane sound systems, house, techno, and other forms of electronic music. Hostel World recommends you shouldn’t go out until midnight, because that’s when the party really gets started.

Hostel World “tried and tested” almost every city to discover it’s own definitive list of “Best Night Out In The World!” Apparently the publication didn’t ask any ravers though — because where the hell is Ibiza!?

Nevertheless, it’s hard to argue with some of these nightlife powerhouses. From Berlin, to Dublin, to Amsterdam, and all the way back to New York, these are the cities that promise the best nights out from across the world!

Which city do you think makes for the “Best Night Out?”
