Rare Eric Prydz Performance Canceled in New York

It should have been a special Saturday night in Brooklyn for fans heading to Depot 52. Last night, legendary electronic musician Eric Prydz was going to perform a four-hour set at the New York venue in which he had played the night before. However, the local Fire Marshall canceled the event leaving concert-goers confused in the streets. Although no official reason for the cancelation has been revealed, fans traveling near and far distances took to Twitter to show their discontent.

 

 

 

Both Eric Prydz and promoter organization Teksupport tweeted about last night’s debacle.

 

 

Unfortunately, any information resolving refunding issues for the show will have to wait until Monday. We hope to hear more information from Eric Prydz and Teksupport to clear any confusion from last night.

Disclosure Drops Lineup For Final Performance Before Their Indefinite Hiatus

Disclosure dropped some big news on fans about a month ago when they announced that they would be taking an indefinite hiatus from playing live shows in 2017. However, they assured fans that they would still be doing some of their key events throughout the year, including their own Wild Life festival, the lineup of which was just released early this morning.

Featuring a wide variety of acts, from Fatboy Slim to Andy C to The Martinez Brothers, as well as huge draws like Eric Prydz and Clean Bandit, not to mention sets from Disclosure and Rudimental themselves, this year’s Wild Life is a can’t-miss destination. Disclosure will also be doing a special b2b set with Armand van Helden which is sure to be a bucket list item some people never even considered.

Tickets are available now on their website.

Mad Decent India Tour Cancelled, Fans Not Pleased With Organizers

Back in January, Indian production company Oji revealed it would be hosting a three-city Mad Decent tour in March featuring performances by Major Lazer, Dillon Francis and more in Mumbai, New Delhi and Hyderabad. Because the series’ 2016 Delhi installment was cancelled, in part, due to the Jat protests in the area, fans set their hopes high that 2017 would run without a hitch. Unfortunately, Oji disappointed the attendees once again Saturday as they announced a full cancellation of all three Mad Decent performances in March.

In a Facebook post written early Saturday morning, event organizer Oji revealed that they would be unable to host the MDBP series “in the exact style with which we envisioned.” Whether the ultimate decision to scrap the series involved disagreements between Oji and Mad Decent, or if it was due to conflict among city officials or police, is not known. Regardless, Oji assured fans who already purchased tickets that they would be refunded in full beginning Monday.

Prospective attendees took to the post’s comment section in droves to condemn Oji for cancelling MDBP a second time, many of the posts urging fellow fans to boycott the company’s events in the future. The region already witnessed cancellations from David Guetta and Eric Prydz earlier in 2017.

Notaker on His New Single “Shimmer” [Exclusive Interview]

My first experience with Notaker‘s music was like love at first sight. His Monstercat debut “Infinite” was – simply said – one of the most beautiful and astounding pieces of synthwave I had ever heard.

When I had the opportunity to listen to “Shimmer” a couple months ago, I was absolutely stoked for the song to be unveiled to the rest of the world. The song almost feels like a more melody-centric rework of “Infinite,” pulling the track’s best elements and layering over its minimal feel with indie dance flavor and bigger synths.

Along with being able to cover this masterpiece of a track, I had the honor and privilege of conducting Notaker’s first-ever interview, which you can read below:

What makes “Shimmer” really stand out from other Notaker releases?

I think it’s the vibe or mood that really sets this one apart from the rest. Most of my productions go for the “epic” sound but for “Shimmer” I really felt like this had a warm “feel good” sound to it, very happy.

What kind of struggles did you need to overcome while producing this track?

There actually weren’t many struggles with this one. I wrote it over 4th of July weekend in about two days. It came together really smoothly and there weren’t too many setbacks. The only issue I had with it was getting the key of the ‘shout’ sample that’s prevalent at every snare hit to match the key of the rest of the track. The problem I had was when I pitched the sample up to the right key the sample quality diminished horribly. So to solve this I pitched everything in the track down to match the sample. A long tedious solution to what seemed to be a simple problem, but it worked, so yay!

What has been your favorite thing about working with Monstercat so far?

My favorite thing is working with their team. Everyone at the label is so passionate about music and are such die hard Monstercat fans. They’re also just really cool people. Love those guys.

How does it feel to be releasing on a label beside names like Gareth Emery, Marshmello and Seven Lions?

It’s kind of surreal. I feel very privileged and humbled that those artists and I share a similar platform that we release music on.

Do you have any exciting collaborations or big projects you’re working on?

I do! I have a few collaborations that are in progress and a few collaborations that are finished, hoping I get to share them soon.

Who are some of your biggest influences when it comes to music?

Some of my biggest influences are Hans Zimmer, deadmau5, Eric Prydz and M83. The way those artists capture emotions and moods in their songs is what I long for as an artist.

Your music seems to be very influenced by the retro. What tops your list for classic video games?

My top classic video games would have to be Earthbound, Zelda (any of them) and Super Metroid. I just recently fired up the SNES to beat some of my old favorites again.

Last one. What’s your favorite pizza topping?

Going basic, I’d have to say pepperoni. It’s just got that classic pizza flavor that I crave.

Kaskade Tries To Troll Eric Prydz And Above & Beyond, But It Didn’t Go As Planned

Kaskade just pulled a major troll on his fans this afternoon, when he announced that he was going to be in Miami next month for Miami Music Week, and would be throwing a free 12 hour Redux party at the same time as Eric Prydz and Above & Beyond’s show.

As one might expect, we were all a little taken aback by this news… even Prydz himself.

Turns out it was just a simple troll, and Kaskade won’t even be in the state of Florida during MMW, let alone throwing a party there.

So cheers to Kaskade for having a little fun with fans… you jerk. <3

deadmau5 To Play as Techno Alias testpilot at Movement

Aliases in dance music can be a great tool. If fans expect a certain sound from an artist and said artist wants to explore new genres and sounds without alienating his or her fanbase, launching an alias circumvents potential problems. Artists like Eric PrydzGreen Velvet and others have proven this time and time again, but can it work for a universally recognized artist like deadmau5? We’re about to find out.

Movement Electronic Music Festival, the long-running Detroit techno festival, announced with its phase two lineup reveal that testpilot, deadmau5’s techno alias, would be headlining on Sunday, May 28. Once an unknown name with a release on Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva‘s Plus 8 record label, testpilot was revealed to be deadmau5’s alter ego way back in 2014. Despite playing techno-heavy sets under his primary moniker, deadmau5 has only officially played as testpilot once before in a b2b with Richie Hawtin at SXSW in 2014. We expect the Movement crowd to be much more receptive of deadmau5’s techno leanings than crowds at some other events, and we hope to see him release more music and play more shows as testpilot in the future.

Check out the full Movement lineup below:

See The Return of Demur As Artist Gives Us ‘DJ Wars’

Anonymous dance music fan and artist Demur has been putting together artwork to illustrate his thoughts as a “concerned citizen of dance music.”

“DJ Wars,” his latest creation, is unsurprisingly inspired by Star Wars and it features one group of dance music DJs and producers on the side of Jedi, and another group on the side of the Sith.

Many of dance music’s A-listers such as Daft Punk, Skrillex, deadmau5, Eric Prydz, and Knife Party find themselves on the side of “good” flanked by fellow producers Noisia, Prodigy, Knife Party, Wolfgang Gartner, Mat Zo, Laidback Luke, Aphex Twin, and even the Monstercat label.

Representing the dark side we have Carnage, Paris Hilton, DVBBS, Danny Avila, David Guetta, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – all of whom have been criticized within the dance music industry for a variety of reasons.Demur DJ Wars
