DJ Scandalous

In an age where boundaries and barriers increasingly divide us, DJ Scandalous is an artist whose diverse musical influences inspire and bring us together. As he likes to explain it, “I’m a fan of all genres, but a prisoner of no single one.” His following around the world attests to his Pop Without Limits tapestry that includes Hip Hop, R&B, EDM, and Pop, infused with subtle classical influences – from rock to the great international masters. Expect a musical journey where each track is an opportunity to explore our hearts and minds, uniting us and inspiring us, with a heart-to-heart conversation reminding us how art tears down barriers and rejects limits. His Pop without Limits approach shines ever-brighter in his latest track Move On, a song defying labels and refusing to be pigeon-holed.

Born and raised in Chicago, his family’s musical heritage shaped his musical journey at an early age. For over a decade he’s honed his craft writing, producing, and promoting the work of both independent and major artists in Europe and United States worldwide, Stevie Wonder and Raynard Miner, Cyndi Lauper, Matt Houston (Sony Music France), Fabrice Sioul (Sony Music UK), the LOX, Trina and Red Cafe to name a few.  Always pushing limits at each stop along the way, creating his own unique style that honors the best of our musical past and incorporates today’s innovation, with a creative vision of great musical discovery yet to come. Today, the Windy City is home, but the musical art of DJ Scandalous is a track-by-track journey of discovery where a unique heart-to-heart musical conversation awaits each of us, everywhere, as part of the soundtracks of our lives.

SG Lewis at Coachella

By Michelle Pisnoy × Vaughn Lowery

Electro artist SG Lewis had quite the weekend at Coachella.

As of late, 360 Magazine interviewed the 24-year-old British producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He spoke to us about performing Weekend 1 and was ecstatic that the Mojave tent was at capacity during his performance.

In 2016, Lewis performed at Coachella and was excited to see the upgraded platforms. “The Yuma tent has really quadrupled in size,” he states. “I played a DJ set at the Yuma Tent in 2016, and now it’s like a full-blown Berlin club in there.”

SG Lewis just released his second song with Clairo, “Throwaway,” which now boasts 5 million+ streams on Spotify. “She is one of my favorite people to work with and a genuine friend of mine,” Lewis recites. “The second song wasn’t premeditated. We were just in the studio and ‘Throwaway’ happened naturally and it fit perfectly into Dawn.”

The following single collaboration is set to feature RUEL. “RUEL is a 17-year-old Australian guy who is hugely talented,” SG says. “He has a really soulful voice,” he added.

For the first time, Lewis played the new track “Flame” for Weekend 2 concertgoers.

ILLENIUM North American Tour

Reaffirming his status as an unprecedented live performer, Denver-based artist Nick Miller—known professionally as ILLENIUM—will grace the stages at two of North America’s most hallowed venues in 2019. He hosts his biggest continental headline show to date at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY on September 21 and launches a two-night stand at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater October 11and 12. A special pre-sale begins tomorrow, March 13, while general on-sale commences March 15. Tickets will be available here: http://illenium.com/tour/. 

In other big news, the critically acclaimed force will unveil an official remix package for his latest single, “Crashing” Featuring Bahari, this Friday March 15. The original version has garnered over 4.3 million Spotify streams and emerged as an emotionally charged fan favorite.

For the remix package, he recruited the talents of a diverse array of producers, including DROELOE, KLOUD, and Rock Mafia. Additionally, the tracklisting showcases a shuddering and stunning stripped take on the song, highlighting the angelic and airy vocal over gorgeous piano. The remixes add a whole new dimension to the tune, which EDM.com dubbed, “yet another instant classic.”

ILLENIUM has ignited some of the biggest stages across the country. His 2018 Awake 2.0 Tour sold out every single date, including three nights at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Auditorium and NYC’s Terminal 5 respectively, and two nights at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. ILLENIUM looks to 2019 with performances at ULTRA Music Festival in Miami, FL on March 30, and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 16, while his Hakkasan Las Vegas residency continues through August. 

With more music on the way, ILLENIUM stands on the precipice of an historic 2019. Get ready!

ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.

His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as “Feel Good” (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and “Crawl Outta Love.” Praising the album as “a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics,” Dancing Astronaut said, “While it might seem premature to call an album a ‘masterpiece,’ no other title would fit Awake so well.” Billboard observed, “The phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.”

ILLENIUM’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s “Say It” earned him an Electronic Music Award for “Best Remix” in 2017. ILLENIUM’s recent collaborations include “Don’t Give Up On Me” with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and “Gold (Stupid Love)” with Excision ft. Shallows.

ASCAP has added leading music creators from the pop, country, EDM, Latin, hip-hop and video game music worlds to its 2019 “I Create Music” EXPO lineup. On the heels of his Oscar win for Best Original Song, “Shallow” co-writer Anthony Rossomando will look back on his two-decade journey to co-penning the anthemic Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper mega-hit from A Star Is Born’s original soundtrack. Grammy, CMA and ACM winner Lee Ann Womack will share the songs that have won her a dozen awards, including her breakout Billboard Country #1 “I Hope You Dance” and selections from her most recent album The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone, named a best-of-2018 by NPR and Rolling Stone.

In addition to sharing their stories and advice, top songwriters will inspire by performing some of their most notable hits from the 2019 EXPO stage. Singer, songwriter, producer and musician Matthew Koma, known for collaborating with Zedd on the #1 EDM hits “Spectrum” and “Find You,” and for co-writing the #1, Grammy-winning and triple-platinum “Clarity,” will be on hand to perform from his impressive multi-genre catalogue. Koma, who has also worked with artists including Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Shania Twain and Bruce Springsteen, currently fronts his newly-formed West Coast band Winnetka Bowling League.

Oscar-winning songwriter, ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams will kick off the Annual ASCAP Membership Meeting. Additional panels will shine a spotlight on some of this year’s hottest areas for emerging music, from the Atlanta music scene to Latin music’s role in mainstream pop, to songwriting in video games. For the first of these, previously-announced EXPO panelist Don Cannon (2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert, Jeezy) will be joined by Atlanta music luminaries like 21 Savage manager Kei Henderson, Capitol Music Group’s Senior Vice President of Global Creative Amber Grimes and Tunde Balogun of LVRN, the multi-faceted team behind D.R.A.M., Raury and 6LACK.

Diaz and Bric will also team up with award-winning producer-songwriter Tommee Profitt (Migos, NF, productions for ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, ESPN, NFL, NBA, NHL, MTV, VH1, NETFLIX, Hulu, HBO, more) and previously announced Mike Woods of duo Rice N Peas (G-Eazy, Mike Stud, Jay Sean) for a Hit Producers conversation about the art and business of producing.

Grammy-nominated and two-time BAFTA-winning composer Austin Wintory (Assassin’s Creed Syndicate) will moderate a panel about creating action-packed songwriting for video games with composers Jack Wall and Cindy Shapiro (Call of Duty, Mass Effect), Darren Korb (Bastion, Transistor, Pyre, Hades) and Ubisoft’s Lydia Andrew (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate).

The ASCAP EXPO will also give attendees the chance to have their original songs heard by leaders from across the music industry, adding A&Rs like Ty Cannon (Aftermath), Jermi Thomas (Columbia), Jae Brown (Capitol) and Jennifer Goicoechea (Epic) to judge showcases and feedback panels throughout EXPO’s three days. Others added to the EXPO include “Music Business Toolbox” founder Bryan Calhoun.

The ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO will take place May 2 – 4, 2019 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. It is the only music conference completely dedicated to music creation and what it takes to be a professional music creator today, attracting over 3,000 music creators for three days of panels, workshops, master classes, keynotes and one-on-one sessions with the industry’s top hitmakers. ASCAP EXPO panelists participate because they want to give back to the next generation, and the feeling of community and giving back is authentic, infectious and inspirational. Many who come to the EXPO walk away saying that it is a life-changing experience. ASCAP EXPO will be making many more panelist additions in the coming months.

Chris Lake × Fisher

By Michelle Pisnoy × Vaughn Lowery

6,000 EDM-loving college students filed into the Shrine Expo Hall Thursday prepared to dance the night away. The floor and balcony were packed as Chris Lake and Fisher took to the stage at their sold out show. Throughout the evening, a horde of fans pulsed to every beat the B2B DJ’s created.

At 10:00 pm, the mob of music lovers got rambunctious in anticipation of their performance. Minutes afterwards, the lights were dimmed and the audience began to cheer. Bright lights flashed, the beat began to intensify and the EDM lovers got even rowdier. Fisher and Chris Lake came out and started to perform mixes of different songs. The duo kept the audience engaged by switching between different beats and songs like “Crowd Control.” As soon as the track commenced, the fans began jumping up and down as well as singing along to the lyrics.

Chris Lake then played hit song, “Turn Off the Lights,” featuring Alexis Roberts. The LED lighting technology was in succinct to every beat of the record. At times, almost blinded the hypersensitive congregation, but they didn’t appear to mind. The night came to a culmination when Fisher played “Losing It.” He added synthetic melodies which made it more enchanting than the studio version. The crowd absolutely lost it, singing at the top of their lungs until the lights turned back on.

Sachi Releases “Worst Behaviour”

Electronic duo, SACHI hailing from New Zealand, return with new electro pop punch “Worst Behaviour” featuring Sam DeRosa available today via Casablanca Records.  Listen HERE.
 
Following two certified-gold singles, and collaborations with Mick Jenkins and E^ST, powerhouse production pair SACHI ride into the new year with festival ready, inhibition free single “Worst Behaviour.” The edgy EDM execution of Will Thomas and Nick Chrisp flirts with sugar coated pop on the new single, where the 20 year old Kiwi electronic duo link up with rising NYC pop singer Sam DeRosa to create a nightlife rebellion anthem.
 
“Worst Behaviour” conveys an unruly relationship where one half is captivated by their partner while the other can’t be tied down, with a craving for the nightlife’s chaotic charm. “ ‘Worst Behaviour’ is about a lopsided relationship where one half is playing games while the other is smitten,” Nick explained. “It came together super quick because it was something we all related to and thought others could too.”
