In Defense of “Selling Out”: Licensing Music in the World of EDM

In Defense of “Selling Out”: Licensing Music in the World of EDM

Let’s take a moment to talk about one of the most overused terms in the music industry… “selling out”. First off, we’ll make a distinction. There is a huge difference between becoming the “Nickelback of EDM” and actually going out selling your own music. Selling out, by the dictionary definition, means “compromising a person's integrity, morality, authenticity, or principles in exchange for personal gain.” Meanwhile, selling your music means just that, selling your own creation, MAYBE for a small monumental gain, so you can, you know, make an honest living. However, over the past few years, wi

Kygo Goes 50 Shades Darker on “Cruise” for film’s Soundtrack

It seems like just yesterday, we were just hearing the name “Kygo” and were all playing “Firestone” on repeat, but that was way back in 2014. Over two years later, Kygo has moved far past his breakthrough track to collabing with pop superstar, Selena Gomez, and releasing tracks alongside Nick Jonas, Taylor Swift, and John Legend for the “mommy porn” spectacle that is “50 Shades Darker”.

The Norwegian producer has taken his typical tropical house sound from the beach to the bedroom for the sultry track “Cruise”. The track features the summer-like synths that we’re all familiar with in Kygo’s

Soundcloud's Ugly Side Is Showing Again

Soundcloud's Ugly Side Is Showing Again

As fans of electronic music, the holy grail of streaming is Soundcloud. Not only for keeping track of my favorite artists, but I can find amazing undiscovered music. Soundcloud allows anybody with an internet access to upload their music for the world to see. That adds a non-exclusive factor to small artists, however that allows for a lot of spam. Any collective or artist knows that pain of spam accounts messaging and commenting on your music in broken english. Soundcloud has open links for users to report fraudulent accounts in the hopes of removing them however the task seems to be useless b

Kill The Noise Brings New Life to Zomboy

A re-cap of 2016’s most popular bass tracks will include Flux Pavilion and Doctor P’s track ‘Party Drink Smoke’, Knife Party’s collaboration track ‘Battle Sirens’ with Tom Morello, and most notably Zomboy’s track ‘Like A Bitch’. The track was played at least once at every dubstep set I saw, and in some cases when running between stages over summer, I heard feedback between two separate stage playing the song at beat matched speeds. ‘Like A Bitch’ is Zomboy’s prodigy of a single, the song blew up and spent all of 2016 being rinsed by every dj. 

However, as a refresh for 2017, Zomboy is having

It’s a piece of encouragement for those feeling the weight of our current cultur

From Screamo to Skrillex: Sonny Moore’s Evolution Through Music

 

While most people celebrate birthdays with cake and maybe a few friends, Skrillex rang in his 29th journey around the sun by returning to his musical roots. You see, Skrillex hasn’t always been the EDM giant with the exaggerated undercut who collaborates with Justin Bieber. In fact, he used to be better known by his real name and as the frontman of a post-hardcore band called From First to Last.

From 2004 to 2007, Moore led the band through several profitable tours, including the Vans Warped Tour, and recorded two studio  albums. However, all of the touring eventually took a toll on Moore’
