Deadmau5 Is Starting On A New Album In January

On the heels of W:/2016ALBUM/, deadmau5 has just announced his intentions to start working on his next LP in January 2017. Considering all the recent developments surrounding mau5, his future looks incredibly bright, but this news regarding another album has come much sooner than anyone anticipated. While deadmau5 probably won’t ever be fully content with his newly designed studio and vast assortment of equipment, he’s certainly edging close to his ideal setup, and with 13 years of project files tucked away, there has to be some gems just waiting to be uncovered. Having just churned out W:/2016ALBUM/, mau5′ new collection will get its start from a clean slate and we can’t wait for what comes of it. Probably going to start my next album in late Jan. The Neve desk should be in by then, so… might as well wait for quality. — dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) December 29, 2016 H/T: Dancing Astronaut | Photo: Rukes This article was first published on Your EDM.

Boy With Autism Gets The Chance To DJ A Song At Seattle Nightclub

Noah Johnson, an eight-year-old from Bonney Lake with high-functioning autism, received the chance to live out his dream this week at a Seattle nightclub where his mom works. According to interviews held with King 5, Johnson’s mom took pictures that he drew of his favorite DJs to the managers of the Aston Manor nightclub. The team then arranged a special surprise for Johnson, allowing him to come up to the decks and play a song for the night’s crowd. Winson Sharps, resident DJ and music director at Aston Manor, said that he’d never seen someone so young with such a strong passion for DJing. “I get people my age who want to learn how to DJ and whatnot, but never an 8-year-old child with that passion already, so it was really cool.” Johnson and his family were accompanied by a police officer as they entered the venue, in order to ensure that his underage visit was legal. Then Johnson, otherwise known by his DJ name DJ Illuminati Pieces, played a song and took home his own set of equipment and headphones to practice with. “Everyone was cheering for me, and they were happy.” According to Johnson’s drawings, some of his favorite DJs are Flosstradamus, The Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki, Yellow Claw, Hardwell and even rapper DMX. “You know I think I’m going to learn to DJ some day and it’ll be great.” Click here to watch DJ Illuminati Pieces in action, as well as interviews with his father and Aston Manor DJs!

Kado Calculates The Best & Worst Of EDM In 2016

Kado, a website currently in beta dedicated to compiling and recommending tracks based on its users’ unique preferences, has just come out with a comprehensive list of the best and worst tracks, artists, sets, transitions and more for the 2016 calendar year. Dubbed the “Year On The Decks,” the list takes into account over 200,000 DJ sets from the site’s users and setlists found online, “to create a review of the DJ world.” Out of the 201,300 sets analyzed, Kado found 1,330,772 total tracks played with 2,576,125 transitions made between them. The site looked at each of the most famous DJs in the roster, giving them an originality score based on how often they play the same tracks between sets and how many other DJs are playing those songs. According to their results, the three most original DJs in 2016 were Hernan Cattaneo, Dave Clark and Noisia. On the other end of the spectrum, the three most “boring” DJs who played the same tracks the most amount of times were none other than DJ Snake, Yellow Claw and Galantis. Kado calculated the setlists to find the artists whose original tracks were played out the most by DJs throughout the year, and found – unsurprisingly – that The Chainsmokers, Armin van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Rihanna and Major Lazer were at the top of the list. As far as remixers went, flips from Claptone, Don Diablo, Purple Disco Machine and Tiësto came out on top. Check out the two graphics below to see the rest of the most popular DJs in their respective categories. Most Played Artists of 2016: Most Played Remixers of 2016: As the end-of-year charts have already shown in overwhelming numbers, the top three most played tracks of 2016 were Drake’s “One Dance,” The Chainsmokers and Halsey’s “Closer” and DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You.” The most played remixes were Riva Star’s edit of Groove Armada’s “Superstylin’,” Seeb’s remix of Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza,” and Julian Juweil’s remix of Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann’s “Fuego.” Perhaps the most interesting finding by Kado was the most played transition of the year. According to data strictly found through published setlists of touring DJs, the transition between Chocolate Puma’s “Listen To The Talk” and Firebeatz and Schella’s “Dat Disco Swindle” was performed by the most DJs in 2016, specifically Benny Benassi, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Pandaboyz. Finally, Kado broke down the genres most played throughout the year. As a series of pie charts indicates, electro house and trance saw the biggest decline from 2015, with progressive house, deep house, hip hop and drum and bass seeing the most significant rises. Check out the charts below, and head over to Kado’s “Year On The Decks” for more. Source: Kado | Image: Rory Kramer This article was first published on Your EDM.
