Attaboy A-Trak.When it comes to inventive and hyper-sonic turntablism, few do it better than Alain Macklovitch. The Fools Gold head honcho is the poster boy for #RealDJing and for good reason. A true tastemaker and DJs DJ, A-Trak’s latest act of showmanship comes in the form of an all-new, 74-minute mix. The 53 tracks he effortlessly mixes through range from Korn to Deadmau5, Rage Against the Machine, Soulja Boy, Justin Timberlake, Detroit Swindle, and Jacques Lu Cont — it’s seemingly incoherent mix of sounds and styles made to work in club-ready harmony as only A-Trak could dream up.Tracklist 1.

In December of 2016, Spotify decided not to purchase SoundCloud, following months of widely-publicized talks between the two streaming companies. At the time, TechCrunch reported that Spotify “ultimately walked away because it feared that an acquisition could negatively impact its IPO preparation.” The price tag which SoundCloud placed on the buyout was $1 billion – the same value which reportedly dissuaded Twitter from buying the German company in 2014.Now, Music Business Worldwide reports that a bigger fish is rumored to be considering acquiring SoundCloud: Google. MBW notes a potential correlation between the rumored acquisition and SoundCloud’s 2016 hire of CFO Holly Lim as a measure to “maintain SoundCloud’s financial health and capitalise sic on new opportunities for growth.” Lim herself was previously employed as a Business Operations executive at Google.MBW reports that the price which Google is allegedly considering buying SoundCloud for sits at around $500 million – cutting the streaming company’s previous valuation in half. The outlet goes on to address the impact that Google’s buyout would have on the major labels which have a stake in SoundCloud; Universal, Sony, and Warner Music Group hold roughly 4%, 3%, and 1-2% in the company, respectively. According to MBW, “If SoundCloud was sold for $500m, the majors would therefore get a cut of around $45m between them.”Via: Music Business Worldwide, Resident AdvisorRead More:Spotify is no longer interested in acquiring SoundCloudSpotify in talks to buy SoundCloudGoogle enters the festival market with new streaming event ‘Good Fest’

There’s tons of news coming out of Sunburn Music Festival in India but perhaps the biggest reveal from the largest festival in Asia came at the hands of the legendary Axwell and Ingrosso. During their performance, the guys delighted the crowd with a first listen of their newest production. An eerily familiar string section (The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” anyone?) kicks off the duo’s latest collaboration with Los Angeles-based hip hop phenom. A blend of orchestral elements, dubby bass lines, soaring R&B vocals, and Ink’s silky smooth flows all work together with impeccable ease. Testament to both producers’ sonic versatility, “I Love You (Working Title)” is a sharp but welcome stylistic departure for the progressive house icons.No set release date yet. But expect this one to find its way into the duo’s sets throughout 2017.
