As TomorrowWorld prepares to kick-off its second edition this September, the highly anticipated music festival unveiled its theme alongside the official 2014 TomorrowWorld trailer, The Arising of Life. Known for creating magical surroundings, this year’s TomorrowWorld journey of mystical landscapes is no exception. On September 26th, 27th and 28th, 500 acres of natural rolling hills in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia will transform into a wonderland highlighting the best electronic artists in the world.
This year’s breathtaking Main Stage spans over 400 feet wide and 100 feet tall. Known as the “Volcano Stage,” the computerized, pyrotechnic structure is equipped with multiple waterfalls and a mysterious volcano that will erupt throughout the three-day event.This massive structure was contained in more than 80 shipping crates, which traveled nearly 6,000 miles from Belgium. “The Arising of Life” was experienced at Tomorrowland 2013 by over 180,000 attendees and an additional 16 million viewers tuned in online to witness the Madness.
Recently, punk rock dynamos The Swellers have decided to call it quits amidst a young and seemingly successful career. Starting the band in their basement in 2002, brothers Nick (vocals/guitar) and Jonathan (drums/vocals) were eager to make a name for themselves in the punk scene in one of the most unlikely of places – Flint,Michigan. Within years, they were mainstays of the Vans Warped Tour and began touring the US constantly.
Soon after, the group signed on to well-known label Fueled By Ramen, and played on several different nationwide tours, opening up for bands such as Paramore, Less Than Jake and Motion City Soundtrack.
As a taste of next month's madness at TomorrowWorld, the whimsical festival has released a fourth installment of its "Artists of Tomorrow" mix, this time by Cash Cash. The European transplant festival is hosting its sophomore year at Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia at the end of September.
Cash Cash, a New Jersey three-piece, is known for its wildly popular "Take Me Home" single, which flooded the airwaves for months on end in 2013. As of 2014, the progressive house group has released three full-length albums, an array of EPs, and provided official remixes for Krewella, Capital Cities, Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Showtek and Icona Pop, along with producing and co-writing Krewella's "Live for the Night".
Listen to TomorrowWorld's Cash Cash "Artists of Tomorrow" mix below.
General Electric and super-producer Matthew Dear have teamed up to show off the limitlessness of music. The collaboration, which finds Dear exploring the GE labs and sampling over 1000 sounds around the facility, then displays Dear’s mastery, as he turns the collection of sounds into one full length single. The song, “Drop Science,” is a full-fledged electronic masterpiece, with all the makings of a club-ready hit record. The song is a wonder from every standpoint, displaying the hyper creativity of Dear, while experiencing the unconventional sounds which mesh perfectly together.
Check out the video below, and watch the process along with the electric final product of the creative collaboration.
1. She's challenges socially established gender roles.
She talks about having casual sex, partying, and drinking. She openly sexualizes guys, something that male artists do to women on a daily basis, except when they do it, nobody even bats an eyelash. In fact, 'Blah Blah Blah' was actually made as a conscious effort to try and create a song where she talks about men the way they talk about girls. When it's a female talking about this kind of stuff, everybody is quick to label her as trashy or uncouth, but the exact same things are celebrated and joked about when they come from a man. Ke$ha says it best herself, “I’m a young, responsible woman who can work and party as hard as any man. So, if I want to talk about drinking and sex, I’m going to do it.”
Rivers Cuomo, best known as the frontman of influential rock band Weezer, is going to have a sitcom based on life air on Fox. As many are aware, the nerd-rocker attended Harvard for a year in 1996, then left to work with Weezer full-time, only to return and finish his degree almost a decade later.
Somewhat loosely-based on Cuomo’s experiences, the show is called DeTour and revolves around a mid-thirties rockstar who departs from the limelight to “find himself” and figure out what he missed while being famous.
Fox already struck a deal with the creators to pay them if the pilot doesn’t air, so it does seem as though this one is being fast-tracked. Maybe some Weezer songs work themselves into the soundtrack – one can only hope! Just no new stuff…
This has certainly been a busy summer for Leeds-born-L.A.-based producer, Rusko. Just a few short weeks after he blew us away with the incredible and eclectic, genre-bending ! EP, Rusko back with a new EP that promises to be just as diverse and interesting as the first. The ! Volume 2 EP is a six-track sequel and with the announcement comes an awesome new single featuring Pusher.
'I Wanna Mingle' starts off sporting some awesome groovy basslines before sprinkling in Waveracer-esque chiptune synths. The entire track is light and sparkling, and though some longtime Rusko fans are mourning the loss of his "old" sound, we are absolutely in love and can't wait to find out what's going to be next!
The day has finally come. After weeks of teasers and settling by listening to a crappy festival livestream rip, you can now listen to the full, high quality version of Zedd's remix of 'Rude'!
Zedd takes the Magic! original and puts in his classic Zedd sound, even paying homage to some of his older stuff by throwing in a slightly softer version of that signature 'Spectrum' siren towards the end. From his soaring synths to the awesome pianos, Zedd's 'Rude' remix basically sounds like he took a bunch of the songs off of the Clarity album and mashed them all together before adding on the Magic! vocals, and we say this in the best way possible!
The Zedd remix of 'Rude' will be out in just five short days on September 2nd, which also happens to be Zedd's birthday! Stream the track above and get ready, because Zedd can definitely add this remix to his long list of worldwide radio sensations.
From Pendulum to Knife Party (and now possibly Pendulum again?!?!), Rob Swire & Gareth McGrillen have constantly been at the forefront of musical innovation. After a trio of successful EP's, the duo have finally decided to take their talents to the next level with their very first full-length album, Abandon Ship.
Just one listen to their brand new single, 'Resistance,' and we guarantee the only thing on your mind will be "holy shit." With release news this meteoric, it seems only fitting that it come alongside a hardhitting, energy-filled banger of epic proportions. And don't forget that this is only the beginning.
The biggest rock band in the United States is taking their act to new heights once again. Continuing to push the envelope, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters have this time brought their story to HBO with a series about the making of their latest LP, Sonic Highways. The show – of the same name as the LP – is set to air October 17th at 11pm, and features appearances from Slash, Dolly Parton, LL Cool J, Macklemore, Willie Nelson and even President Obama.
The series dives deeper into the process of the album, and chronicles the sonically unique experience the band became a part of when recording in cities all across the country. Notes Grohl in the trailer below, "I really believe that the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical results.”
