ZHU unveils music video for Nero collab, ‘Dreams,’ announces San Francisco NYE Blacklizt event

The NSFW quality of ZHU & Nero’s music video for their collaboration, “Dreams,” has managed to match — and perhaps exceed — the track’s ominous tone.

The music video for the track aligns with the single’s dark tone, showing piles of unclothed human bodies stacked in piles, or alternatively, suspended in air, rising and falling in sync with the song’s slight builds and drops. An eerie production, the Dreams music video remains in ZHU’s shadowy wheelhouse.

After witnessing inaugural success in New York, ZHU’s Blacklizt party has another destination on its radar for New Year’s Eve. The Blacklizt bash will descend upon San Francisco, hosting sinister drops in time for the 2018 ball drop. The NYE event will kick off at 1015 Folsom at 10 PM on Sunday, December 31st, extending until 4 AM on Monday, January 1st. Those interested in ringing in the new year to the tune of ZHU may purchase tickets to the event here.

The Prodigy Announces New Single Coming This Year, New Album To Be Released In 2018

Good news has arrived for all fans of The Prodigy. The band recently announced via social media that they are dropping a new tune before the end of the year, along with a new album that will come in 2018.

The announcement, which unfortunately doesn’t get into details about specific release dates, has been clearly well received by their followers. In just a few hours it gathered nearly 17,000 likes and was retweeted more than 600 times.

A little over a year ago, band leader Liam Howlett stated in an interview with British magazine NME that the group was going to focus only on releasing EPs, not being interested in creating albums anymore.

We want to get to the point where we release EPs instead of albums. We’re not really bothered about releasing albums anymore. […] The whole process just takes too long.

Fortunately for us, it seems that the Godfathers of Rave have changed their mind about this. They just signed a new deal with music publishing company BMG Rights Management to record and release an album in 2018. This will be the band’s seventh studio album, following The Day Is My Enemy, which came out in 2015.

The Prodigy started their road into electronic music back in 1990. With sales of more than 30 millions records worldwide, they are considered the creators of the Big Beat genre. We certainly hope the new album gives us more of those sounds.

You can check one of their all-time classics, Out of Space, below.

Tchami and Malaa team up for 11-stop ‘No Redemption’ North American tour

Undoubtedly leading the current revival of French house tastemaking comes two producers who are quite literally writing the trends in deep pulsating, bass forward house music. Today Tchami took to Twitter today to announce to fans the “No Redemption” North American tour alongside enigmatic house producer and fellow CONFESSION confidant, Malaa to cap off 2017.

The 11-city roll out will grace major Canadian markets Toronto and Montreal, while crossing the U.S. with the remainder of stops — with Las Vegas, Brooklyn, Miami and Chicago in the duo’s crosshairs. The “No Redemption” road stretch is pairing the dark, deep, and wildly unpredictable turns of Malaa with the symbolic religious sacraments of Tchami as he takes his constituents to church.

Pre-sale tickets are available now, using the code “SUMMER99.”

Gallant x Eric Nam x Tablo’s ‘Cave Me In’ Receives Raiden Remix

After wowing fans last week with the latest episode of his acclaimed In The Room series featuring Dua Lipa, Gallant returns today with the Raiden remix of ‘Cave Me In’ with Eric Nam & Tablo of Epik High. Take a listen to the dance floor ready rework HERE.
A former lead guitarist in a band, Raiden marries electronic accompaniments with rock sensibility to create unique & infectious sounds. Performing at the largest Dance festivals, including ULTRA and Tomorrowland, and with support from the likes of Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero, Raiden is proving one of the fastest emerging EDM producers from Korea on the global dance scene. As the first venture into the electronic dance space with ‘Cave Me In’, Raiden is a stellar addition to the release.
The original ‘Cave Me In’ collaboration was released in January 2017 and has gone on to amass millions of streams, along with the Hong Kong filmed video being viewed over 5 million times.   A relationship born out of mutual respect, ‘Cave Me In’ features three special talents firing on all cylinders. Having performed at the MNET Awards earlier this year, Gallant has seen his popularity in Asia explode over the past few months, including a first ever headline show (2,600 capacity) sold out in Seoul. Pay close attention to these four artists as they share new music in the coming months…

HARDWELL & KSHMR  “POWER” ile ilgili görsel sonucu

Over the last few years, Hardwell and KSHMR have remained relatively steadfast in the world of big room EDM production while some of their contemporaries have gotten swept up into the future bass world. Now, the duo are ready to unleash their huge new festival anthem “Power!”

“Power” kicks off with a mild vocal-driven intro before we’re suddenly thrown into an aggressive introduction that paves the way for a banging festival drop – just 30 seconds in. The second half of the song sees some more orchestral elements introduced, plus a lovely piano before the even more aggressive second drop comes in.

Nicky Romero & Teamworx – Champion Sound

Joining forces for the first time, Dutch maestro and Protocol pioneer Nicky Romero has enlisted the skills of Israel-based Progressive House duo Teamworx for the latest single on Protocol Recordings, ‘Champion Sound’.  As grandiose as the title implies, the release is a fast paced, hard-hitting house track that showcases the heavier elements of all involved artists.
“It’s a really amazing feeling when you get to see an artist grow from release-to-release; it’s one of my favorite parts about running a label.  We’ve put out several of Teamworx’s tracks on Protocol over the years and I’m thrilled to finally collaborate with them on this latest record Champion Sound.” – Nicky Romero
‘Champion Sound’ is relentless.  A high energy, fast paced BPM dance track that blasts kick drums and non-stop bass for the first minute, followed by a euphoric, symphonic build-up that evokes listeners emotion before diving deep again, pounding the fast beats home through the rest of the song.
This has been a milestone year for Nicky Romero, celebrating 5 years of growth and success of his Protocol Recordings label.  Nicky is looking forward to celebrating this years’ success of Protocol next month at ADE with a label showcase, taking place at Melkweg in Amsterdam.  Taking pride in spotting, developing and collaborating with new talent Nicky Romero has curated a label boasting only the best in emerging electro and progressive house prodigies.
Having executed a colossal calendar of relentless touring, Nicky has played all across the globe this year. Having recently completed a tour of Asia with stops in Japan, Shanghai and Taipei, he now looks forward to a huge South American tour with Ultra stops in Brasil, Mexico and Road to Ultra Peru and the Secret Garden Music Fest in Ecuador.  2017 has been busy to say the least for the Dutch dance music legend, but he shows no signs of changing pace with non-stop releases through the course of 2017 and beyond.
Teamworx are no strangers to Nicky’s legendary Protocol Recordings, with their first Protocol feature finding itself on the label’s Miami 2016 compilation.  Since then they have found themselves with the electro legend’s support thrice preceding this milestone collaboration, and will perform alongside Nicky at his ‘5 Years of Protocol’ label showcase at ADE in October.  With the influence and support of Nicky Romero and massive artist growth throughout 2017, including a mainstage set at Tomorrowland, the heavy house duo has limitless potential and opportunities to become champions of dance music themselves.

ULTRA Worldwide Concludes Another Record-Setting Asia Tour

ULTRA Worldwide, the world’s largest independent music festival brand, has wrapped another historic tour in Asia, which saw over 400,000 people attend SEVENTEEN events on the continent in a four-month period during 2017.
Spanning nine countries, ULTRA Worldwide further expanded its presence in Asia in 2017, with ULTRA China, Road to ULTRA India (Mumbai and New Delhi) and multiple standalone RESISTANCE shows in Bali, each making their debuts in the region.
ULTRA LIVE, presented by UMF TV, attracted an unprecedented 25 MILLION viewers to watch the livestreams  in China, India, Japan and Singapore. The festivals in Shanghai and Tokyo were hosted on YouTube, Tencent and Panda TV, while ULTRA Japan was also streamed via LINE Live. All in all, ULTRA LIVE saw an incredible 20 million viewer increase across its Asia livestreams in 2017, serving as yet another reminder of ULTRA’s ever-increasing global appeal.
In June 2017, ULTRA Korea returned to the capital city of Seoul for its sixth anniversary, welcoming upwards of 120,000 fans to the immense Olympic Stadium, officially cementing its position as the largest two-day electronic music festival in Asia. Over 80 world-class acts came together across the Main, Live and RESISTANCE Stages – the latter of which made its highly lauded debut. ULTRA Korea will be returning in 2018 as a three-day festival.
Produced on the same weekend for the first time ever, ULTRA Singapore returned to its home at Bayfront Avenue to deliver another groundbreaking program of DJs and Live talent. With over 50,000 in attendance across the two days, this was ULTRA’s most successful outing in Singapore to date.
ULTRA’s inaugural foray into India saw two editions of Road To ULTRA on the subcontinent; one in New Delhi and the other in Mumbai. Headlined by The Chainsmokers, both events sold out, welcoming 15,000 and 12,000 fans respectively.
ULTRA China became the latest addition to the ULTRA Worldwide stable of events in 2017 and demand was unprecedented. 40,000 fans attended across two days at Shanghai’s Expo Park, ensuring a fully sold out event in advance. Acts including Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix, Porter Robinson, Sasha | John Digweed and more all contributed to what was a landmark show for ULTRA Worldwide.
Road to ULTRA Taiwan SOLD OUT one month early in 2017, smashing its own attendance record by an incredible 8,000 people as 25,000 Ultranauts packed into Da Jia Riverside Park on September 10. Headlined by The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix and Zedd, Road to ULTRA Taiwan also saw three times the amount of international visitors this year compared to years past.
ULTRA Beach Bali became the centerpiece to an entire week of events on the ‘Island of the Gods’ in 2017, titled ‘Bali Music Week’.  With an opening party and RESISTANCE club nights operating throughout the week, ULTRA Beach Bali ran its most successful edition to date, selling out with well over 10,000 people flocking to Seminyak’s Potato Head Beach Club across two days. The first ever ‘Bali Music Week’ ended with one of the greatest techno parties the island has ever seen, with thousands in attendance at Ku De Ta to witness legends Carl Cox, Joseph Capriati and Sasha | John Digweed perform at the RESISTANCE Bali Closing Party.
Manila’s Mall of Asia Arena played host to Road To ULTRA Philippines’ third annual outing, where Hardwell, Zedd, Rezz, Sam Feldt and Getter among others played to a crowd of thousands, while Road to ULTRA Hong Kong returned for its second edition with a SOLD OUT 9,500 strong crowd dancing to the beats of Hardwell, Kygo and Zedd in the center of Hong Kong’s sprawling metropolis.
ULTRA Japan, the grand finale to ULTRA’s onslaught in Asia, once again sold out for the fourth consecutive year, with 120,000 fans attending the three-day extravaganza.  Complete with brand new, cutting-edge stage designs for both the Main Stage and RESISTANCE, ULTRA Japan also became the fourth country on the ULTRA Worldwide calendar to host a Live Stage. Debut performers at the festival in 2017 included Carl Cox, The Chainsmokers, Empire of the Sun, Joseph Capriati, Porter Robinson, Seth Troxler, Steve Aoki and Underworld among many more.
RESISTANCE Afterparties, hosted at Tokyo’s Womb, followed the event each day, featuring the likes of Seth Troxler, Stephan Bodzin, Nic Fanciulli and Joseph Capriati.
Having smashed its own records yet again, ULTRAWorldwide continues to live up to its reputation as the most successful international festival producer in the world, with no other festival brand coming close to accomplishing the worldwide domination ULTRA has. With its two Asia legs in 2017 now complete, all eyes are focused on Latin America.
Commencing on October 6, ULTRA will begin its most ambitious tour of Central and South America to date, putting on separate events across nine countries in just ten days.  With debut RESISTANCE shows taking place in Rosario, Córdoba and Medellín, the return of both Road To ULTRA Peru and Road to ULTRA Chile, the first edition of ULTRA Mexico, the expansion of ULTRA Brasil, and the return of RESISTANCE to Buenos Aires over two weekends, ULTRA are set to wrap the calendar year in exquisite fashion.
