Your EDM Premiere: Herobust Drops Monstrous Single, “First Person Shooter”

Get ready for a trip down memory lane, all you gamers. Herobust’s latest single, “First Person Shooter“, is not only a monstrous track, but one brimming with nostalgia with the early sounds of classic games like Super Mario. I almost wonder what life would be like if this track had been in a Mario game….

He creates a incredible arrangement, including a few thunderous drops that will make you go crazy. Even the robotic vocal samples fit in seamlessly, all in all making this yet again another solid release from Herobust.

On top of all of this, he even created a short music video, depicting his very own first person shooter game. While it won’t be hitting GameStop any time soon, you can hear the song and watch the video to “First Person Shooter” below!

Moon Boots Drops Debut Album ‘First Landing’

Groovy house music producer Moon Boots has been wooing crowds from Earth to Pluto and everywhere in between since he burst onto the scene several years back with a prolific combination of remixes and original singles. Now, he’s finally consolidated all of that creativity into one fleshed out body of work with his debut album First Landing.

With five singles spread out starting with “Red Sky” in 2016, you could be forgiven for assuming that most of First Landing would be older material but thankfully the artist has opted to not go down the route and deliver five newer records alongside the singles. First Landing oscillates between bouncy house music – new record “Never Get To You” is a great example – and warm downtempo records like lead track “Fortune Teller.” There’s an eclectic mix of R&B, jazz, soul and funk influences making this one of the more versatile house records in a minute. The diverse cast of featured vocalists certainly helps as well.

Regardless, whether you’re a fan of..

Zhu Is The New Face Of Spotify’s Rebranded electroNOW Playlist: “mint”

Playlists are one of the most powerful tools an artist can use on Spotify – getting into the right playlist can net you tens or potentially hundreds of thousands more plays and exposure. Up until now, the main playlist for electronic music has been electroNOW. But starting today, that’s changing.

The electroNOW playlist is officially being rebranded as mint.

“The launch of our flagship electronic playlist, mint, represents the unique pieces of the culture and the global audience that lives and breathes it,” said Austin Kramer, Global Head of Electronic.

To head up the rebrand, Spotify has chosen Zhu to be the face of mint. In celebration of the rebrand, as well, Zhu has released a surprise 4-track EP containing his collaboration with NERO, “Dreams,” as well as three other tracks that are all insanely good.

“Electronic music is incredibly diverse and ever-fresh,” continued Kramer. “mint is the condition. Having ZHU a part of this launch was a natural fit as he embodies the culture, ..

President Trump Seems to have the Munchies in “Leaked” White House Rider Form

There’s nothing that is more telling about person than their leaked tour riders — just take Dillon Francis, Skrillex and Diplo, or Justin Bieber for example.

While we’d love to tell you that the hotel & catering requirements form below actually came straight from The White House, it’s probably just satire at its finest.

Double Stuffed Oreos, 9 lbs of bacon (traveling to the Middle East? As if), 3 plasma TVs, KFC napkins, 2016 electoral college victory maps, and an assorted box of Airhead candy are just some of the bizarre requests on this hilarious presidential suite request form. The best part is that someone took the time to make this rider look real enough to pass as an official government document.

The “leak” via the Rogue White House Senior Advisor account on Twitter can be viewed in full below:

Carnage’s Soundcloud Hacked, But He Seems Kinda Cool With It

Twenty hours ago, a random track was uploaded on Carnage’s Soundcloud, prompting users to believe he had been hacked. Carnage confirmed as much on Twitter, though seemed oddly okay with it.

by the homie @zg he's legit tho props

— CARNAGE (@djcarnage) August 17, 2017

The upload itself was titled “Hacked by Quinn,” so it wasn’t really a far stretch to assume hacking in the first place. The track is… rather tongue in cheek. Lyrics “I’m so fresh you could suck my nuts” repeat throughout the duration of the track.

It’s been 20 hours since the track was uploaded and it still hasn’t been removed.

Perhaps stranger still is the hacker, user @ZG on Twitter, seems possibly depressed and in need of help. He’s tweeted about taking prescription pills and writing, “let’s see where did takes me perhaps see u Neva again idk” [sic]. He also asked if anyone wanted his Twitter accounts, bitcoins and other things, “I don’t care.”

Others have already reached out to him to see if he’s okay. His mo..

Maceo Plex To Throw Free Show In Charlottesville Promoting Unity In Wake of Riots

While the debate about race relations has certainly heated up in the dance music world since the terrifying riots in Charlottesville with DJs speaking out, techno legend Maceo Plex is looking to take action by throwing a free party in Charlottesville to “promote & dance for unity & equality” and to fight “neo nazis.”

Let's do a free party in Charlottesville to promote & dance for unity & equality, and fight those @realDonaldTrump supporting neo nazi's.

— Maceo Plex (@MaceoPlex) August 14, 2017

While the initial tweet was made a day after the unrest in Charlottesville, he’s since followed it up with another tweet asking for local promoters to join him in his cause earlier today.

Any serious promoters in Virginia that would like to take part in a free event to promote Unity & fight neo-nazi rhetoric/violence?

— Maceo Plex (@MaceoPlex) August 17, 2017

Support from around the dance music community has been swift as well with DC promoter Nu Androids, DJs Soul Clap, Coyu, Mat..

Martin Garrix Takes Over Wet Republic This Saturday

It’s not every day that you get to see the #1 DJ in the world at an intimate pool-side venue in Las Vegas, but this Saturday that’s just what you’ll be doing.

Martin Garrix is taking over Wet Republic this Saturday, August 19. The club opens at 11 so you and friends can get in early, do some swimming, maybe get your drink on. Martin will come on later to really get the party started and then all bets are off.

This is Martin’s second to last set at Wet Republic (the final one being Sept 2), so this is also one of your last chances to see him in this setting.

Buy tickets here now before they’re all gone!

Perhaps you’ll hear some new music like he dropped at Tomorrowland.

KTRL & Rico Act – No Respect [Super 7]

Chicago’s KTRL and rapper Rico Act dish out some skull rattling bass with their latest Super 7 Records release “No Respect”. Utilizing a high energy and definite neck breaking tune, Jayceeoh’s imprint Super 7 Records does bass right with one more on their catalogue. After a string of releases with Buygore and Firepower, KTRL, sets his sights on a new style of hybrid bass with a splash of hip hop influence. Rico Act seems like the perfect feature for this given a predominant background in hip hop / rap.

Aspire to Inspire 207: Curbi

(Original Photo By: Nanda Hagenaars)

Breaking into the music world is not an easy task, however, staying there and remaining consistent can prove to be even more difficult. We talked to breakthrough British producer/DJ Curbi, real name Toby Curwen-Bingley, about some of the struggles of making a name and maintaining one as an artist in the electronic music scene. Only 18 years old, the UK native has already had massive singles such as “51,” “Triple Six,” and “Bruh” with Mesto, releasing music on both Spinnin’ Records and Musical Freedom. As Curbi has made a name for himself over the past couple of years, the surrealness of the journey has not worn off on him.

“It’s crazy, man. I’m just a normal guy. I make music, DJ, and now people really look up to me. It hits me…the way they say the music hits them. Because I’m just one normal guy. But it’s really nice to hear that my music hits people in an emotional way. It makes me feel good and like I’ve been given a purpose, which sounds clich..
