Helena Hauff is among the elite league of DJs welcomed into Apple Music’s Beats 1 Residency program for 2017, placing her alongside influencers such as Kölsch, Eats Everything, and deadmau5. Taking note of the Werkdiscs label regular’s broadcast mixing prowess, BBC Radio 1 recruited Hauff to provide the final Essential Mix of February.The Essential Mix has had it’s share of transcendent and club-germane techno in 2017, with stellar outputs already from the likes of Adriatique and Pan-Pot. Helena Hauff, however, has disrupted this trend by dedicating much of her mix to techno’s harder, more driving edge. Over the course of her two-hour set, Hauff blends distorted, industrial techno with metallic electro, erratic breaks, and tinges of acid house and EBM.Drawing from the likes of The Hacker and Dark Vektor, the German DJ puts forth a raw, cerebral endeavor that would please Boys Noize even in his most discerning mood.Listen to Helena Hauff’s Essential Mix debutTracklist:1.

Taking the intensity down more than a few notches, Heldens manages to turn the future bass banger into a groovy, melodic slow burner. There’s no big drop, there aren’t any of the usual sounds we hear from Heldens… instead, this is just a simple and soothing remix with some drums, an addictive bassline and a perfect piano melody.

Earlier this week, Soundcloud co-founder Eric Wahlforss released a statement regarding the strictness of copyright-related takedowns on DJ mixes uploaded to the streaming service. After a lengthy period of fear surrounding the threat of possible account terminations, many DJs were relieved to hear that the company’s new agreements would allow for a less stringent atmosphere on the site. According to a new update, however, it appears that unlicensed content in mixes can still result in unexpected takedowns. The new statement released by Soundcloud attempts to clarify what Wahlforss meant about the new negotiations supposedly made between Soundcloud and industry entities. Behind flowery sentences praising the community aspect of Soundcloud, a note was made that original rights holders will still have the full capability to request takedowns. “There have been a number of incoming questions this week from our community around creativity and content on SoundCloud. Today, through a number of agreements with labels, publishers and other partners, there are far fewer takedowns of various forms of content – including DJ sets – shared on SoundCloud. It’s clear from our conversations and agreements with the industry and creative community as a whole, that enabling a place for all forms of creativity to live is important, and that SoundCloud can be that place. With that, it’s important to note takedowns are at the request of creators. While the agreements we have in place across the industry have greatly lessened the likelihood of takedowns, as a creator driven platform, we respect all creators, and therefore we respect the rights of all creators who request to have their content removed. As always, SoundCloud’s aim is to continue building a unique ecosystem where all forms of expression can live and thrive. The community of creators who gather, share their work and collaborate on SoundCloud is hugely important to us. Creators on SoundCloud continue to be a driving force in pushing culture forward in the world, and we are honored to be the place to help amplify the millions of creative voices who call SoundCloud home.” Several DJs have already felt the effects of Soundcloud’s unclear, initial statement. One of them, ak9, posted to Facebook on Thursday to describe his own run-in with the still-active takedown system. According to his post, he included a rework of The Weeknd’s newest single in a mix uploaded to Soundcloud last week. An hour after posting, he received an email stating that the site had removed his mix on the grounds of copyright infringement. Because he had included a rework of the original track, he filed a dispute. After waiting an entire week with no response, he found his account to be terminated, along with his 33,000 followers.

One of the biggest draws to the dance music community is the atmosphere. People come from far and wide searching for a safe space where they are free to be themselves, check anxieties and judgment at the door, and thrive in the moment. It’s not uncommon to see signs at festivals with phrases like “EDM saved my life” or “everyone loves you here.” But how can a style of music bring so many people together in such genuine harmony? The answer to this question lies in the stories of thousands of festival and show-goers. One in particular, the story of JC Boushh, sheds light on the amount of healing music can bring on multiple levels. JC grew up as a wacky kid with a big imagination. Throughout his younger years he always seemed to be on the fringes of his age group. With only one or two close friends, JC was often picked on for being too skinny, didn’t socialize very much, and was rather sheltered by his parents. One night when he was 17 (in the 80s), a friend took him to his very first club, Odyssey in Los Angeles. “It was like I went from being sheltered to total club scene kid overnight. I went from 1-100 real quick. It was the first time I started to feel like I was a part of something. The things I remember the most are the music and the mirrors. The Billy Idol song “Dancing By Myself” was from when he was at nightclubs and people would dance with themselves in front of mirrors. It became a cool, accepted thing to do and that was how I learned how to dance.” From that night on, JC was a total party animal. He would be out partying every night, gone for days at a time, and eventually started experimenting with drugs. However, as many people do as their late teens and early 20s come to an end, he tested out the idea of “settling down.” JC joined the police force in Sierra Madre and worked as a detective for the next 10 years. His role in the club and music scene shifted from fan to behind the scenes, as his unit of private investigation oversaw a number of clubs. He got married, had three kids, and seemed to have it made from an outside point of view. As JC’s area of the police force downsized after the Rodney King riots, he was laid off and things took a turn for the worst in his personal life. His marriage had been both emotionally and physically abusive. He had been isolated to the point where he had lost most of his friends, and felt that others controlled every aspect of his life. “Three years before we got divorced, I found out my wife was cheating. I was completely devastated. I was an emotional wreck, drinking a bottle of vodka every day. I could barely function. I shaved all the hair off my head and even got a tattoo. My kids pulled me out of it for a time. They reconciled me about it so we tried going to therapy. For three years it was just miserable. The cheating and the abuse didn’t stop. There were, of course, some good times, but it always went back to bad situations. It was a constant roller coaster ride and it took a huge toll on me.” Much like his teenage years, one of his few close friends was into the rave scene at the time and convinced him to buy tickets for Coachella. He had always wanted to go since it was so close to where he lived, and the fact that one of the few people he had a healthy bond with was encouraging it, made him very excited for it to finally happen. “I spent about $1,000 on tickets. Everyone came to my house to get ready on the day of Coachella. We were all ready to go, I went to check on my wife to see if she was ready, and suddenly she said no we aren’t going. She told me I could, but I knew it would have been miserable and ended up in a fight— so I didn’t go. At that point in my life, I realized that I was never going to get to do the things I wanted to do. I was going to have so many regrets in my life. There I was at 48 years old. So I filed for divorce.” After removing himself from such a painful relationship, it wasn’t long before JC started to feel like his old self again. He moved in with his best friend who took him to his first real festival, HARD Day of the Dead, and he fell in love with the scene all over again. The music, the atmosphere, and the overall acceptance from everyone around him was magnetic. He started taking care of himself again in the physical sense as well. He began eating healthy, working out, and eventually losing the 65 pounds he had gained throughout the toxic portion of his life. Doing so led to befriending a group of guys who were going to EDC Vegas 2014. Upon walking into the Las Vegas Speedway, JC experienced the view that has awestruck so many over the years. With his best friend meeting up with his new group, it was a weekend of healing. “I really felt the love of the community. I finally felt like I had found what I had been searching for throughout my whole life. This was that moment I always wanted. I was loved, I was respected, and I was cherished. It was all of these things that I never got from my parents or my ex wife, whom never thought I was good enough. There were 40 years of not really feeling like I was loved or important to anyone, and suddenly I felt it at this place. It was incredible.” Ever since, JC has frequented shows and festivals across the United States. He also plans to take his youngest son to his first festival this coming spring to share the experience with family. Beyond his involvement in the music scene, JC has also started his very own personal training business as a way to help others feel the way he did when he began to take his life back. The dance music scene has done so much for JC and others like him, which makes it unfortunate that so many critics view it as a problem in our society today. When asked about how he would go about changing the minds of skeptics, this was what JC had to say: “I’ve seen music go from punk rock to rock n’ roll to house. Every single one has some sort of drug or alcohol activity. It is simply unrealistic to make EDM and raving the bad guy because from Woodstock to everything thereafter, there has always been “something else” involved with music and the arts. That’s just life. It’s difficult to explain to people what raving is like. It’s something they have to experience. I think it takes a very open mind and someone who is willing to put down their reservations for a second and embrace life. That’s what it symbolizes to me at least. Embracing life to its fullest. Anyone can go to a rave and say they hate the music and everyone is fucked up in their underwear, but that’s a closed mind. It’s the same thing people thought about Woodstock. They just need to be open to it. The love and acceptance at raves should be a part of everyday life, but unfortunately it isn’t. For some people raves are the only places they can experience this. It’s a small slice of what heaven could be like.” We can all learn a thing or two from JC’s story. No matter how tough things may get, how close to our hearts our problems may be, there will always be music. As long as there’s music, there will always be a safe place to be free.

The Ready Set is best known for his meteoric rise in the electro-pop scene, however, the producer/vocalist has been transferring his skills to more dance-based productions. His latest is a joint effort with Nashville standout Mokita in the form of a daydream-inducing output called “Broken Parts.” The Ready Set’s glossy, youthful lyrics float atop a sublime bed of chords before the pair detonate a euphoric future trap burst of fluttering vocal chops and sharp percussion.Check out more future bass on Dancing Astronaut here
Mokita came out of nowhere to surprise me earlier this year with his debut track Dreamer along with the great melody and vocals from Cade on their track Monopoly (released via Armada Trice). Monopoly managed to reach over 2.5 million streams on Spotify alone in less than 4 weeks. Similarly, The Ready Set had a great year including tracks such as Good Enough along with Michael Brun and a great cover and remake of Nico & Vinz’s Am I Wrong. Broken Parts pulls both their strengths together to create a soft, yet energetic blend of summery passion. The instrumental and vocal focus switches back and forth effortlessly as if they are one of the same. “Broken Parts is about bonding over imperfections and finding beauty in accepting them. Mokita’s production had a really cool vibe on this that made it super fun to write too, I love how the track turned out.” – The Ready Set This article was first published on Your EDM.

2016 has been… rough. With the death of Alan Thicke just a couple days ago, it seems like this year isn’t content to just leave us alone up until the very end. However, there have been a lot of great things that have happened this year, too. If you’ve been to a music festival and had fun, or made friends, or saw the best set of your life, that’s worth something. If you accomplished a personal goal; if you finally said “I love you”; if you just finally figured out how to make that damn souffle, you should be proud of yourself. In dance music, Kaskade has had a great year. Every year he reflects on the past twelve months in a blog post, and this year has been quite packed. You can read his words below, and head to the blog here for a lot of tweets, pictures and messages from fans that Kaskade holds dear. Ok 2016, you’ve made your point. Perhaps the most poignant memory of 2016 is the sudden loss of Colleen Burns, who founded a community of friends from all over the world she named “Kaskade Konnect”. Colleen was more than a fan, she was a true diplomat and love ambassador. Her absence is felt every day, though her legacy outshines that sadness. It’s been a tough year world-wide. I read somewhere that this year was proof that David Bowie actually did hold the fabric of the universe together. We lost him and everything went a little haywire. But as we emerge and look around there were some very high points. If we look at our pictures and spend some real time looking at all we’ve shared together, it’s been a landmark year. Holy Ship, the Grammys, Ultra, Redux, EDC, Kaskade LA, and most importantly: all the music. It’s been a new year in a new studio and I’ve never felt so inspired. This is the year I finished The Arkade, and in the last three months, I’ve written more music (yet to be released) than I’ve written in the last three years. Join me in saying ‘bye 2016 and looking forward to what we can crush together in 2017. At the end of this post, I’ve put together a complete library of the music that came out of my brain (and was released) in 2016. Because there’s really no better way to look back than by listening. #LetTheMusicSpeak When you can’t get high enough….#Chicago : @MarkOwensPhoto pic.twitter.com/57i88z1xnY — Kaskade (@kaskade) June 13, 2016 Image via Rukes.com This article was first published on Your EDM.

After building a legacy as a primary member and purveyor of the All Day I Dream sound, it’s time for Hoj to move onto the next chapter in his artistic career: launching his own label. His vision has now officially come to fruition under the name Tale + Tone, with the label debuting its 6-track Storybook EP as a vinyl only release on July 21.The caliber of the music thus far indicates that Tale + Tone will soon be a revered institution. Take for instance its inaugural EP through digital platforms — Letter For Poly, by none other than the enigmatic Cornucopia.It opens with a stunning title track that sees Cornucopia targeting bittersweet emotions with a metallic, yet full-bodied synth progression that stays in the mind long after the record reaches its end. Unfolding at a gradual pace, listeners are taken through ethereal soundscapes which bring almost nostalgic, longing imagery to mind. Its addictive and entrancing nature is precisely why a number of artists have rinsed it numerous times in their sets for well over a year now.This emotive approach to track production is one that Cornucopia has demonstrated keen mastery over since the secretive artist began appearing on the progressive circuit with a debut self-titled EP and a hypnotic remix to Guy J’s piece “Temporary Sanity.” Furthermore, it makes Letter For Poly an ideal opener chapter for Tale + Tone’s storyLetter For Poly officially releases on August 4, with more EPs from Storybook artists to come.

It seems that San Francisco will always be home to artists who bring an out-of-the-ordinary twist to whatever medium they handle. One musical artist from California’s North base is an-ten-nae who is releasing his album Medicine today. What is also occurring today is the dojo is providing the premiere of “Je T’aime” a single that we thought was especially cool off the LP. “Je T’aime” doesn’t just play into one style of dance music. If you went on an tried to categorize this one, you’d be using multiple terms; not being able to knock it down under one solid genre. It’s chill, invigorating and an experience. All music is trying to bring the listener an experience and an-ten-nae succeeds in delivering something that listeners will connect to and remember. As we said previously, Medicine is out today, so you can get a copy of the album on iTunes.
