Ultra Singapore Drops Phase 1 Lineup For Inaugural 2016 Edition

While numerous electronic music promoters crumble under the weight of the Edm industry’s recent contraction, Ultra has proven itself capable of weathering the storm. It wasn’t long ago that Ultra Singapore‘s organizers revealed that the two-day festival would kick off in 2016, and now they’ve followed up the announcement by unveiling its phase 1 lineup.

Afrojack, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, deadmau5, Kygo, Nero and DJ Snake comprise the biggest chunk of names on Ultra Singapore’s present talent roster, while Far East Movement, Jauz and Marshmello all find their logos in the smaller row – which speaks to Far East Movement’s relevance in the Singapore market.

Last year’s Road To Ultra was held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre in Singapore, although it only consisted of one day and was held indoors. Ticket demand for Ultra Singapore is expected to dwarf last year’s event, and a total

Swanky Tunes Board A Sinking Ship With Going Deeper Collab “Drownin'”

Progressive house trio Swanky Tunes might be demonstrating that they’re out of touch with their recent releases. After collaborating with bygone era superstars Far East Movement last month, they’ve now teamed up with fellow Russians Going Deeper on the aptly titled “Drownin’,” whose melodies might have turned more heads if they’d put it out last year.

Similar to Swanky Tunes’ previous Going Deeper collaboration, “Far From Home,” “Drownin'” exhibits the square-peg-in-a-round-hole approach in which reverberant future house bass lines are complacently thrown together with a progressive house buildup-drop scheme. What results is yet another Edm cliché that falls short of the fluid stylistic synthesis its producers attempted to achieve.

A preview of Swanky Tunes and Going Deeper’s “Drownin'” can be heard in the SoundCloud player above, and the full version is now out by way of Armada Music sub-label Showland Records. After giving it a listen,

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Two: Bj Colangelo

Like Jerry’s installment yesterday, I too tend to write with a playlist blasting in the background. As a musical theatre performer and a former coffee-shop cover singer, music plays a major part in my life. My music tastes are all over the board, but my writing playlists tend not to really click with what most people would assume is played when analyzing horror films. My favorite bands aren’t even on this list, because my “writing mix” is very specific to my writing process. It’s weird. I almost can’t listen to my all time favorite bands when I write because then I become distracted. I love finding new and undiscovered talents and I’m a sucker for female covers, but most of my songs are, well, you be the judge. -Bj Colangelo

Maker Studios Creators Are ‘Illest’ In New Far East Movement Video

Far East Movement, the hip hop group best known for its incredibly catchy 2010 smash hit, 'Like a G6', recently rolled out a new music video. However, unlike most artists signed to a major label (Interscope, in their case), the group did not choose to distribute its work via Vevo. Instead, Far East Movement has dropped 'The Illest' on Maker Music, and a bunch of Maker Studios creators show up in brief cameos. 'The Illest' features the members of Far East Movement getting down in an office, where they are later joined by the office's employees and some other special guests. Unpredictable rapper Riff Raff drops a verse in the song, and the list of Maker creators who make cameos includes Nice Peter, Watsky, Rawn, Steve Greene, and Jeffree Star, among many, many others. Before you watch it, be warned: this video is very ill. Don't watch too closely, lest

Katy Perry wears Rodarte, brings John Mayer to 2013 inauguration

  • Pop2it
Katy Perry brought two of her best accessories to the 2013 inauguration: Her striped Rodarte coat, and her boyfriend John Mayer. The jacket came from the Rodarte Fall 2012 collection, and Perry complimented it simply with black sunglasses and a fedora.

This more subdued fashion statement is a marked contrast to the outfit she wore to the Kids' Inaugural Concert over the weekend. There she donned a very patriotic, pin-up inspired outfit replete with stars, stripes and a top hat as she performed for Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia, as well as other military families.

"I'm very proud to be here and to see the Obamas and the Bidens here for four more years!" she said at the concert according to the New York Daily News. Also performing at the event were Usher, Mindless Behavior and Far East Movement.
