Watch Major Lazer's Galvanic Trailer for New Cuba Concert Documentary



Major Lazer offers a behind-the-scenes look at their historic 2016 concert in Havana, Cuba while painting a fascinating portrait of Cuban youth culture in the new trailer for Give Me Future. The documentary will premiere November 17th on Apple Music.

Last March, Major Lazer performed a free show outside the United States embassy in Havana, marking the first major concert by an American artist in Cuba after Barack Obama reestablished diplomatic relations with the nation. The concert drew an astounding number of people and the new clip offers a look at how the unprecedented show came together.

But Give Me Future also goes beyond typical concert doc fodder. Part of pulling the concert together was ensuring that Major Lazer's music was available in a country with little Internet access. The clip highlights the work of one self-described "pirate," who says, "I like giving people information that's hard to get." Elsewhere, a young Cuban woman talks about why electronic music resonates with her, "I live in a city that's suspended in time, slow paced. That's why I love electronic music. I don't feel so frozen in time. It gives me a future."

Major Lazer will also release a compilation album to accompany the documentary, Major Lazer Presents: Give Me Future Music From and Inspired by the Film. The collection arrives November 17th and features unreleased tracks from Diplo, Cuban artists featured in the film and more.

Will Smith Reveals He's Sitting On 30 New Tracks

willsmithedm2-10.17.2017-970x550



The reunited Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff have shocked fans everywhere as the nostalgic pair takes on EDM!

Their first effort Get Lit doesnt lack enthusiasm, but definitely limits itself with the straight up fist-pumping beat and predictable progression that tends to raise more eyebrows than hands. But as it turns out, theres plenty more where the somewhat inspired, yet totally generic Get Lit came from.

Will Smith reveals he and Jazzy Jeff are sitting on roughly 30 new songs together. And deep down we know that his 1997 Big Willie Style self wouldnt stand for the type of cookie-cutter production at work with Get Lit. There has to be some hits in there, right?

Soon enough, well know because 30 songs sounds a lot like an album should be in the works.

12-Year Old DJ Rena, Youngest DMC World Champion



12-year-old DJ Rena won the 2017 DMC World Championship, making him the youngest competitor in its history to take home the prize.

The battle, in collaboration with Technics and Ortoon, has been running for over 30 years.
The Japanese scratch DJ beat out artists from 16 different countries, joining the ranks of past winners DJ Craze, Mixmaster Mike and Q-bert.

In 1997, A-trak famously won the same title when he was 15, astonishing the world as the then-youngest victor.

Earlier this year, DJ Perly became the first ever female to win the DMC US Finals.

John aka 'JAZ' is an Episcopalian minister by day and cosmic-disco slinging DJ by nightexploring where the lord's teachings and dancefloor intersect. In the first episode of THUMP Profiles, THUMP travels to JAZ's home in Charleston, South Carolina to catch a sermon behind the altar (and the decks), firsthand: from his eclectic 'OFF/BEAT' party to an "Episco-Disco" in the crypt of a centuries-old church.

Tom-Petty-Dies-Dead-66-Years-Old

Tom Petty, one of the biggest and best-selling musicians of all time, has passed away. He was 66.

The following is a breaking story. Please check back for ongoing updates as we learn more information.

His straightforward classics are staples of American culture. And his songwriting ability is legendary. Now, another American musical icon has passed away.

Tom Petty was struggling with a full-blown cardiac arrest in his Malibu home this (Monday) morning, according to details now confirmed. The singer was rushed to hospital care while still showing a pulse, but later died in the hospital.

The singer and musician was 66. Thats an early death though more information is still coming to light.
Sadly, Pettys passing was overshadowed by the deaths of more than 50 concertgoers in Las Vegas. Its all part of a pretty depressing day in the music world and the world in general.

G-Eazy and Cardi B Perform No Limit on The Tonight Show



G-Eazy is currently readying his comeback, with his next studio album The Beautiful & Damned set to arrive this fall. With support from Cardi B, the Oakland rapper dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a televised performance of their collaborative single No Limit, sans A$AP Rocky, who is also featured on the song.
The performance of the energetic track, which dropped earlier this month at the top of September, received the retro treatment for viewers watching at home and was filmed in black and white, complete with film scratches and all.

While G-Eazy opens the track and performs A$AP Rockys chorus, the performance is amplified once Cardi B, whose single Bodak Yellow is currently the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100, steps out on stage. During the track, the Bronx rapper addresses her recent achievements, spitting the fittingly altered line, You know me, Cardi B, No. 1 on the charts.
Cardi B has been showered with lots of love from her peers after making history with her No. 1 song, with even the likes of Taylor Swift gifting her with a gorgeous display of flowers. With The Tonight Show performance added into the mix, Cardi Bs celebrated reign continues.

Cardi B 'Moves' to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 With 'Bodak Yellow

mgid-uma-image-vh1

"Bodak," released on The KSR Group/Atlantic Records, makes Cardi B (born Belcalis Almanzar, in the Bronx, New York) just the second female rapper to top the Hot 100 without any other billed artists, following Lauryn Hill's first solo Hot 100 entry (apart from the Fugees), "Doo Wop (That Thing)," for two weeks beginning with its Nov. 14, 1998, debut at No. 1.

Cardi B is only the fifth female rapper ever to lead the Hot 100 at all. After Hill, Lil' Kim ruled for five weeks in 2001 with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk on "Lady Marmalade"; Shawnna reigned as featured on Ludacris' "Stand Up," which topped the Dec. 6, 2003, chart; and Iggy Azalea's introductory Hot 100 hit, "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, led for seven weeks in 2014.

Cardi B is also the first female soloist to top the Hot 100 with a debut track unaccompanied by another artist since Meghan Trainor, whose "All About That Bass" led for eight weeks beginning Sept. 20, 2014.

"Bodak" bullets at No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart with 46.4 million U.S. streams, up 14 percent, in the week ending Sept. 21, according to Nielsen Music. It bounds 12-3 on Digital Song Sales, up 85 percent to 56,000 downloads sold in the week ending Sept. 21, marking the Hot 100's top gain in download sales (aided by a 69-cent discount price in the iTunes Store). The track also lifts 16-13 on Radio Songs, with 62 million all-format audience impressions, up 8 percent, in the week ending Sept. 24. ("Bodak" spends a fifth week at No. 1 on the Rap Airplay chart and a second week atop R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay; crowns the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart, with a 3-1 rise; and debuts on Pop Songs on at No. 37.)

Notably, for a second straight week, a song tops the Hot 100 but is not the week's No. 1 title in streaming, airplay or sales; still, it accumulated enough overall chart points to reign.

As for Atlantic Records in 2017, thanks to Cardi B's new No. 1, multiple leaders on the label have ascended to their first weeks at the Hot 100's summit in the same calendar year for the first time since 2012, as Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" ruled for 12 weeks from its debut at No. 1 in Jan. 28. Five years ago, Flo Rida's "Whistle" and Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" each ascended to the top for Atlantic.

Wu-Tang Clan Disses Martin Shkreli on New Song 'Lesson Learn'd'

Wu-Tang-Clan-press-photo-wbr-2016-1548

The contentious feud between Wu-Tang Clan and "pharma bro" Martin Shkreli heated up on Friday (Sept. 22), when the prestigious rap group thrashed the pharmaceutical boss on their latest offering "Lesson Learn'd."

Inspectah Deck delivers the massive haymaker, rapping: Hater/ Wouldnt last a day in my shoes/ You know very well/ Bet he swell/ You can tell he jeal/ My price hikin like the pills Martin Shkreli sell." In 2015, Shkreli became notorious for spiking the price of Daraprim from $13 to $750 per pill. Daraprim is medication used to treat AIDS patients.

Last year, Ghostface Killah slashed Shkreli in a scathing 12-minute interview, in which he referred to him as "the man with the 12-year-old body" and "PeeWee Shkreli."

Earlier this month, Shkreli opted to put the $2 million album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, up for sale on eBay. Last week, rumors surfaced regarding the legitimacy of the album. Domingo Neris, manager of U-God, debunked the entire project: "It's not an authorized Wu-Tang Clan album. It never was," he said.

Cash Me Outside Girl Signing Marks The Official Split of the Music Industry



There are now two completely separate music industries.

And most dont even realize this. It has been a long time coming.

One, you have the traditional music industry. I call it the Superstar Business. And its run by the major labels. For a while now, of course, they have been solely focused on how to make the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time. This year. This week. This day. This moment.

Their vision and strategic timelines have been getting shorter and shorter. Gone are the days where a Columbia records sticks it out through two failed (full length) albums because they believe in an artist like what happened with Bruce Springsteen.

Now the majors wont even sign you unless youre already proven with the numbers to tout.

If you hadnt lost all respect for major record labels yet, well you have now. Atlantic Records just signed someone who is not a musician. Is not a rap artist. Is not any more talented than the next 14 year old kid who can kinda rap. But has a following. A massive one at that.

If you have been living under a rock the past week, you may have missed that Atlantic Records just signed (a 360 deal no doubt) Danielle Bregoli (a.k.a. Bhad Bhabie) who got shot to stardom by her colorful appearance on Dr. Phil. The Cash Me Outside meme (and remix) was born. And in true Kardashian fashion, she has since gained millions of Instagram followers.

Pioneer DJ XDJ-RX2 Official Introduction



Pioneer DJ is on a roll right now. With BPM approaching and a string of new stuff being announced, theyre clearly looking to fill every corner of their stand with new shiny, and the updated and rekordbox standalone XDJ-RX2 will absolutely garner the attention of a broad spectrum of the shows visitors.

Theres a price to pay for all this embedded stuff, and its one that initially made my arse cheeks clench. The XDJ-RX2 is going to set up back a full $1699/1699/1529. Yeah I know right? Thats almost 400 more than the old one at launch. But what you have to get past is that this isnt a simple brainless MIDI controller. Its fully standalone and a mixer too essentially bar a CD drive, its a take anywhere with all bases covered device. It is a good slice of the booth that it wishes you to inherit.

Theres a price to pay for breaking free of the shackles of the laptop, and this is it. But if its anything like experience of the old one, its likely to be worth it.

Avicii: True Stories Documentary - Official Trailer



Theres a pivotal scene in Avicii: True Stories, a new documentary about the superstar Swedish DJ and producer arriving at select movie theaters on Oct. 26. Its March 2016 and Tim Bergling, the real-life then-27-year-old behind the EDM moniker, is about to announce his retirement from touring after five straight years of astronomical success, but in order to make it official via a social media post, he has to inform his handlers, friends, and business associates that hes about to pull the trigger convincing them all the while that its just something he has to do. Its nearly pitch black in the room, save for the glow of Berglings Apple laptop, and one can sense the darkness in the air, too as if the world is crying out in unison, Why?

Avicii: True Stories, directed by longtime Bergling friend and visual collaborator Levan Tsikurishvili, delves deep into the decision-making that goes into making such a drastic call before the age of 30, and also the star-making process from a vantage point rarely seen. Its a compelling and cautionary tale that touches on an industrys greed to cash in on the dance music craze and the pressure an artist feels when his managers and agents all-too-willingly risk health and friendship in order to keep the train rolling at maximum speed.

Fans will be able to see the movie theatrically for one night only (in 40 countries and 600 theaters, though dates vary), and, in the U.S. it is being released through new fan on demand service TUGG. Avicii True Stories was produced by Piece of Magic Entertainment, whose CEO Caspar Nadaud announced a bonus concert film of Aviciis very last performance in Ibiza in Aug. 2016 which will be shown in theaters. This cinema event is a must see for all electronic music fans across the world,

Warner Music Group Acquires Spinnin Records

Spinnin

Spinnin Records have always been one of the best independent labels to share dance music. Not only have they converted millions of fans, but they've given big breaks to some of the biggest artists in the scene right now. Artists like KSHMR, EDX, Chocolate Puma, Sam Feldt, Alok, Umeet Ozcan and many more consider Spinnin' their home. In addition, Martin Garrix was also associated with Spinnin' Records for a very long time before he parted ways with the label. To top things off, Spinnin' Records is also home to and acts as a parent company to many sub labels that includes Musical Freedom by Tiesto, Dharma Worldwide by KSHMR, Hexagon by Don Diablo, Heldeep Records by Oliver Heldens and Maximized by Blasterjaxx.

Now, as time changes, so does business. The label that was founded in 1999 by Eelko van Kooten and Roger de Graaf has now been bought by the Warner Music Group in a $100M+ deal. This might seem like a heft sum, but actually it's not, considering the big names that is currently associated with the label. Currently the label will be operated by the Spinnin' Records co-founder Roger de Graaf, while co-founder Eelko van Kooten is leaving the music business to pursue interests in other industries.
