Editorial: EDM Social Media

It's an odd thing to have a predetermined idea of someone in your head based off of social media. You see your favorite artists’ instagram posts and their snapchats and read all of their tweets and you have this feeling that you know what is going on in their lives because you feel like you know everything there is to know. Well sorry to break it to you, but you're WRONG. This doesn't go for all artists, but a good majority of the producers and DJ’s we all know and love really aren't giving you insight to anything at all. Managers, agents and PR people usually have access to all their artist’s

Global Tracks of The Week

Wicked by GRiZ

The first song off of GRiZ’s most recently released album, Wicked instills an image of hellfire and brimstone in the listener’s mind, in the best way possible. While the lyrics imply that “something wicked” is on it’s way, the saxophone and guitar supporting the beat both say otherwise. Perhaps because it is the first song, or perhaps because in live shows it’s the song he chooses to open with, the track almost immediately brightens up any atmosphere, getting people excited for what is about to come next.

Global Spotlight: Kayzo

Kayzo, also known as Hayden Capuozzo, is an American producer and dj based in Los Angeles. Originally from Houston Texas, the 26 year old got his start through Insomniac's ‘Discovery Project’ in 2012. In winning the contest he had the opportunity to play Escape from Wonderland that same year. Escape from Wonderland was also his debut set, which is impressive. Kayzo’s entry for the contest was a hard-hitting mix that makes you want to get up and dance. Kayzo’s style can be described as a mix between hardstyle, electro, and dubstep, and  is sure to please any head banger.

In 2016 Kayzo relea

Who Is k?d

Who Is k?d

As quickly as this question was posed to the masses, it was answered. K?d, otherwiseknown as Patrick Cybulski, is a young producer who, in the last two years, has worked his wayinto the big leagues of EDM. Between touring with Chainsmokers, and leading his own festival appearances as well as a headlining tour, it's no wonder that his music has come to the attention of so many. But how did this rise to fame happen? Some say it was his Porter Robinson-esque remixes, which pioneered a theory on the internet in many circles that “k?d” was a Porter alterego. Others pinpoint the collaboration with R

Excision Reveals Lineup For First Ever Lost Lands Festival

Excision Reveals Lineup For First Ever Lost Lands Festival

In one of the more anticipated concert announcements in recent memory, Excision blew away every expectation any basshead had when he dropped the three day dubstep heavy lineup featuring acts like Zeds Dead, 12th Planet, and Herobust. If you’re constantly seeking out the bass stages at festivals, well…welcome to heaven. One can only imagine how hard keeping a lineup this massive a secret would be, but even more than that was the location. There’s no doubt every hardcore fan was fully prepared to travel wherever they needed to go, but now it’s confirmed that Lost Lands will be going down in none

Spotlight Revisit: Fed-Up

Spotlight Revisit: Fed-Up

A year ago I wrote an article on a mysterious dubstep artist that I had found in the ether of soundcloud. I was shocked because the follower count and numbers did not match the quality of music being produced. I had found a gem, and had to share it out. However, I wasn't the only one supporting Fed-Up's music. With major releases, collaborations, and huge support from large artists, Fed Up wasn’t a secret anymore, and I’m very excited about that. 

"We ran an article on you last year when I randomly stumbled across your song "Grim." I was showing this song to everyone, and sent it over to all

Seven Lions releases new single “Where I Won’t Be Found”

Why do we love Seven Lions? He knows how to perfectly mesh together melodic dubstep with a hint of trance to create his own signature sound. His latest single, “Where I Won’t Be Found” is no different. The track gives you the feel-good, “all I want to be doing is dancing around at a festival with one hundred of my closest friends” feelings while packing a fun, subtle bass line, beautiful synth breaks, and dreamy vocals provided courtesy of NÉONHÈART.

“Where I Won’t Be Found” is part of Seven Lions upcoming EP by the same name set to be released on the 26th of this month. He has already releas
