MK Drops Official Video For Dancefloor Smash “BACK & FORTH” w. Jonas Blue & Becky Hill

Directed by Finn Keenan, the video showcases the special symptoms of a man who has contracted a contagious and terminal “Back & Forth” medical condition. This deadly fever starts off with his body jerking sporadically to the beat without end, thus causing much worry to his partner. The humorous production follows the afflicted man from his first symptoms to the worsening later stages of this rare condition, with his new-found dance-fever soon proving infectious to those around him.
An upbeat record led by MK’s contagious signature piano-house sound,“Back & Forth” follows the success of Marc‘s huge 2017 smash “17” and 2016 gold-certified hit “Piece of Me”with Becky Hill, who pairs her soulful vocals with the instinctive pop sensibility of Jonas Blue on“Back & Forth.” 
As the proud owner of his Area10 label and event brand, which has hosted parties worldwide, headlining stages at the likes of SW4, Creamfields and
Croatia’s Defected Festival, as well as his appearances at Ibiza’s HI, Ushaia, Pacha and the sold-out weekly Ibiza Rocks Area 10 series this past summer,
MK‘s reputation as a true musical innovator and mentor is firmly rooted within the dance music community thus gaining widespread respect from both the underground as well as the more mainstream audience.

Party Favor & Bipolar Sunshine Team Up for Dancefloor-Friendly Urban Track “Circle Up”

Notorious party-starter Party Favor teams up with vocalist Bipolar Sunshine for his latest booty-shaking production “Circle Up, accompanied by a technicolor music video that will send you straight to a trippy tropical oasis. “Circle Up” delivers tribal-influenced percussion and basslines coupled with some reggaeton instrumentals, making for a dancefloor-friendly track that – per the music video – comes with its own set of ready-made moves. Through combining multiple genres into a forward-thinking sound that doesn’t fall short on the fun factor, Party Favor continues to blaze a bold new path in electronic music. The track rounds out a very successful 2018 for Party Favor, with highlights including a massive performance at Coachella where he brought out Jamie FoxxTyga and Rich The Kid, a wild set at Hard summer, and an an overflowing tent at Life Is Beautiful. He is preparing to begin his new residencies at some of the world’s most prominent venues – Hakkasan Las VegasE11EVEN Miami and Premiere Nightclub in Atlantic City, so look to hear “Circle Up” on heavy rotation as the weather cools down and the clubs heat up.

Party Favor boasts one of the most diverse and accomplished resumes in the industry as an DJ, producer and boundary-pushing artist. His music has helped the festival trap and twerk scenes rise to unforseen popularity in dance music, and frequently blurs the boundaries between electronic, rap, reggae, and many other genres. Party Favor has a heavy rotation of hit originals, such as “Bap U,” “Caskets,” “Give It To Me Twice,” “In My Head” and his recent “MDR,” which have lead to his impressive 135 million plays on Spotify and Soundcloud. Additionally, he’s worked as a producer for some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Lil Jon‘s “Alive,” which featured 2 Chainz and Offset from Migos, and ASAP Ferg‘s “Eulogy” from the Madden 2018 video game. The collaboration with Bipolar Sunshine marks the coming together of two forces to be reckoned with in electronic crossover music. Bipolar Sunshine is known for his work with DJ Snake on “The Middle,” Gryffin‘s “Whole Heart” and recently San Holo‘s “brighter days.” Stay tuned for more new music in 2019 from these rising stars.

PIERCE Releases The Sinister First Track “Death Note”

Just when you thought you’d heard it all, PIERCE is about to dramatically change the game with his upcoming FLESH EP, and he’s just dropped its first single “Death Note.” As one part of a 7-track series that tells a bone-chilling story of life and death circumstances, “Death Note” takes place in the center of the action. Our hero awakens from unconsciousness in the hands of captors who are out for blood and must fight for his life if he is to survive. PIERCE narrates the terrifying episode with goosebump-inducing effect through the use of meticulous, bass-driven production; the sound of a knife blade being sharpened, evil cackling, stabbing synths and blackout-inducing basslines all contribute to the track’s life-and-death feeling. “Death Note” ends on a victory note as PIERCE breaks from his captivity and subsequently takes out the leader of his assailants, leaving the listener with an insatiable curiosity as to how he came to be in this situation and what happens next. You’ll have to wait and see, as the next hint drops on September 28th.

Austin Pierce Guerra, better known as the maestro behind PIERCE, makes the type of music that both instills terror in soccer moms and bloodthirsty euphoria in bassheads – the type that sounds like it could come straight from a steel factory, yet drives thousands of bodies into a frenzy on the dancefloor. While perfecting his craft at Icon Collective production school, PIERCE learned the ropes from some of the best minds in the business. After graduating in 2015, he had his debut EPAudi” signed to Spinnin’ Records within a year, then went on to release “Hijack” on Insomniac’s Bassrush label in 2017. “FLESH” is his most ambitious project yet, fusing the mind of a storyteller and producer together to create a dark sonic tale of survival. Keep an eye out for the next pieces to PIERCE‘s menacing puzzle coming soon.

AMELIE LENS JOINS RICHIE HAWTIN ON THE CLOSE TOUR TO NORTH AMERICA

Iconic electronic music artist and technology visionary RICHIE HAWTIN today (Oct 4) announces Belgian electronic music artist and one of the fastest rising stars in today’s techno scene AMELIE LENS will join him as support for his only North American show this year of CLOSE – his award-winning audio-visual show set at Brooklyn’s Avant Gardner in New York City on Saturday, December 8. The event is produced by OUTPOST Events.
“I first heard Amelie at ADE last year. I thought the best way to see if she was any good was to go on the dancefloor and dance, which I did.  I couldn’t see her from where I was and was sucked into the music she was playing –  a mix of old and new strong techno records, tough but not hard, fast and throbbing which was hypnotic and energized,” states RICHIE HAWTIN“Honestly, it was really refreshing to hear a Techno set that wasn’t too abrasive and didn’t make you feel like you should be marching instead of dancing. It was definitely intense, but there was an underlying groove that made it fun and infectious.”
“As a young artist it really impresses me how Richie keeps innovating and reinventing himself. He keeps finding new ways to express himself and in my opinion that is exactly why he has been on the top of the scene since so many years,” adds AMELIE LENS. “Always looking for more, always looking to do better. To me he is a legend, a true inspiration and I’m honored to be involved in this project.”
 
HAWTIN’s show, CLOSE – SPONTANEITY AND SYHNCHRONICITY, explores the relationship between human creativity and the innovative technologies that enable an artist to express themselves. The show was voted Best Live Performance at the Ibiza DJ Awards this year and Best Live Performance 2017 at the DJ Awards. Having debuted the concept at Coachella followed by shows at Primavera Sound, ADE and Vivid LIVE at the Sydney Opera HouseCLOSE opens up the DJ booth for a transparent masterclass in Spontaneity & Synchronicity. It represents how far the art of DJing can be pushed today, thanks to a completely improvised performance which means no two shows are the same.
In recent years, HAWTIN’s pioneering work has crossed over into artistic and cultural fields, collaborating with Anish Kapoor – one of the most influential sculptors working today – at the Grand Palais in Paris; performing live as Plastikman at the Guggenheim in New York for fashion designer Raf Simons; and creating soundscapes to the photographic work of Andreas Gursky at the Gagosian in New York and K20 in Dusseldorf. HAWTIN‘s electronic productions and DJ sets make him one of the most respected artists to emerge from the early 1990s techno scene.
The Great Hall at Avant Gardner is the quintessential Brooklyn industrial warehouse, that’s anything but. A massive and soaring space equipped with KV2 Audio’s VHD5.0 sound system, customizable rigging capabilities and fully programmable lighting fixtures built to immerse attendees in the ultimate show experience.
OUTPOST is an event series produced by the award-winning team at OUTPUT featuring top tier electronic artists in world-class performance spaces.

Interview: EDDIE Drops “Numb” On mau5trap

After kicking off the re brand of “EDDIE” via the creation of the robot skull, named “Lawton”…EDDIE released 2 free download tracks independently via soundcloud, both within the same month, January 2017. A very
unique choice of electro. Shortly after, he was approached by mau5trap and asked to debut on the label via their “we are friend’s volume 6” compilation (WAF006) with his track ‘No Time’ in March 2017. The track was a hot favorite on the compilation, leaving a welcoming, positive reaction from the mau5trap horde fan base. Only 3 short months after and he debuts his first EP named “Pipe Dream” which includes another horde favorite ‘Healing’ the Ep charted top 10 in the electro house section on beatport top 100.
Since then EDDIE’s featured on mau5trap another 3 times. One being WAF007 another being his 2nd EP named “Bad Habits” which was seen in the top 15 in the electronic iTunes charts US…..and his latest remix of fellow mau5trap buddy, BlackGummy.

We were lucky enough to chat with EDDIE about his latest release and some new upcoming projects.

  1. Tell us a little about yourself how you started off as a DJ/producer? 

When I was about 14 a few of my class mates showed me a local artist who was just beginning to blow up with a genre called “ Melbourne bounce.” From that moment I was just absolutely intrigued and wanted to know more, I didn’t even want to learn to produce yet until that same year I went to my first ever festival (underage festival) and looking back now it was such an incredible line-up: Avicii, Skrillex, deadmau5, Dada Life and more….but yeah straight after seeing these acts and experiencing all this electronic dance music live…I remember coming home with the biggest smile on my face because it was the most incredible experience and right there I had the thought of ‘what it would be like learning how to produce’ but I talked myself out of it thinking I wasn’t smart enough or I’d fail miserably because it just seemed so hard. Skipping forward A year and a half later, still a massive fan of electronic music and making mashups on virtual DJ [lol] I eventually asked a friend of mine if he could show me how to use the program that he has [which was FL studio9].

I got FL and had the basics down, watched a heap of tutorials and spent a solid 4 hours or so a day just messing about.

At about the age of 17/18 i started to take it more seriously and thought maybe I could actually make some sort of career out of this and that’s pretty much the start.

      1. Who are some of your biggest musical influences, someone you look up to?
        Oooh there’s so many but I’ll be keeping it short and say that the heavy influencers would have to be: Heatbeat, Mirwais, Eric Prydz [& all his alias’s], Avicii, Gesaffelstein and of course mr deadmau5.

      1. What do you normally do when you come across a creative block while producing music? 
        • I mean if I hit an obvious block and notice myself forcing productions then I just game a whole lot and not produce for like at least 5 days straight and I always have a Harry Potter marathon during that period, that’s never failed me.. my lucky charm haha!
      2. You’re latest track, “Numb,” has some pretty cool hard techno beats that give off Rezz vibes, would you say she’s someone you look up to and gain inspiration from?
        • The idea behind Numb was really just to try and do something really different and the vocal is unreal so working around that vocal I naturally leant towards a darker theme. There was no inspiration for majority of the track only the second drop I tried to get a sort of Gesaffelstein vibe, but in saying that I do find Rezz very inspiring with everything she’s done in such little time, its quite amazing.. 😊

      3. What was the creative process behind “Numb” while collaborating with Q’AILA?
        • So Q’AILA sent me the demo and i loved it, I had this cool unusual vision for it and updated her with links frequently and we went back forth with our ideas/visions up until it was finished, which was very quickly actually!

You know when a track just keeps on getting better the more you work on it? And its comes together so quickly, Well that happened with “Numb!”

      1. You’re getting ready to release your ‘Spiritual Contraband’ EP, what can listeners expect from it that’s different from your previous releases? 
        • Yes I’m super excited for everyone to hear this EP!

I think listeners should expect the unexpected from me, I’m always releasing something different from my previous release… I like to have people guessing what will come next!

      1. Tell us 3 things that we don’t know about you (hobbies, fun facts, likes/dislikes, funny stories while performing). 
        • I’m a Harry Potter nerd and I have a shrine of collectables
        • I’m from Australia [ everyone thinks I’m from USA]
        • I am a big fan of sports, as is my father so I’ve been into it all since I can remember but I especially played tennis for 9 years and I somehow ended up sitting in a chair making music all day instead lmao.
