Bassnectar announces fall North American tour

One of music’s most prominent and longest standing bass practitioners, Bassnectar, is gearing up for a busy fall in 2012 with a coast to coast tour that hits markets not covered on his VAVA VOOM Spring tour. His latest album of the same name peaked at #1 in the iTunes electronic chart (#9 overall) and showcases some of the most diverse influences in the EDM world, including hip hop collaborations with Lupe Fiasco and Amp Live, ethereal vocals from Mimi Page and a tribute to California Skate-punk legends Pennywise. Bassnectar’s highly original production style is spurred from a past of far reaching musical inspirations. His music is meticulously produced, consciously relevant and brazenly defies genre categorization.

The VAVA VOOM Spring tour brought over 80,000 Bass Heads together within the span of three weeks. In 2011 Bassnectar sold nearly 200,000 hard tickets ($1 of each goes to charity), with an astounding 72 dates sold out. Whether performing at auditoriums, coliseums, civic centers or a major festival, Bassnectar produces events with the same passion and creativity as when he is making music. Each tour ups the ante with a massive roadshow that packs its own custom sound system and light rig to compliment his expansive sets. Additionally, Bass Center VII comes to St Louis on October 6th with Zeds Dead. The tour kicks off September 27th in Greensboro, NC at the Greensboro Coliseum.

As one of the headliners of the Identity Festival, the boys will weave their way throughout the USA and Canada on a proper rock star trapping, their own tour bus.

“We’re really excited to hit this tour on the bus” said Wouter “It makes seeing the country more of a possibility and we may be able to actually recover from the last nights’ show by sleeping on the coach instead of jumping immediately on another airplane! And,.. who doesn’t want their own tour bus, that f

Azealia Banks Mermaid Ball 2012 tour dates


“Banks entered her ball as any semi-aquatic celebutante would: flanked on either side by her girls, and wearing nothing but seashells, jewels, some well-placed pasties and her milky, mischievous smile. Banks’ penchant for foul-mouthed fun and sticky hooks are unstoppable: during her rising B-side ‘Liquorice,’ fans eagerly belted the harmonious bridge without her help.” -ROLLING STONE, on the NYC Mermaid Ball

Press Releases Tour Dates

Justice release New Lands EP, new Justice tour dates


Justice, the world acclaimed electronic duo of Xavier de Rosnay & Gaspard Augé, today released a new five-song EP “New Lands”. The EP’s title track is culled from 2011’s prog-dance masterwork Audio, Video, Disco and features remixes of the song by A-Trak, Sebastian, and Falcon, as well as a live version captured on the band’s ever-extending world tour, to which a new US leg has just been added on top of previously announced dates at Red Rocks, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, among several others (full dates below). The EP will be accompanied by a stunningly cinematic video directed by Canada that will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

The band’s manager and Ed Banger Records head honcho Busy P offered these thoughts on the EP: JUSTICE “NEW LANDS” EP includes some very familiar names. My oldest friend DJ FALCON was surfing away, it wasn’t easy to get him out of the water and go back in the studio.He did it for us, his Roulé touch, like the perfect soundtrack for a little ride on the Pacific Coast Highway.A-TRAK is for me the North American side of Ed Banger records, here again, it was natural to ask him to remix his Justice friends.SEBASTIAN went downtempo, hipnotic, if you’re fed with “Ni**as in Paris” (you heard it 11 times in a row…) you might like this joint!The Live version offers you a little taste of how JUSTICE can sound in a big room with people bleeding, sweating and crying.This is “NEW LANDS” Justice new single extract from “AUDIO, VIDEO, DISCO”

DMX Tour Dates

DMX kicks off tour dates



Ruff Ryder legend and world-renowned performer DMX will hit the road this summer to support his upcoming comeback album Undisputed, releasing this fall on Seven Arts/Bloodline Records. The first leg of the tour will kick off June 1st in Cincinnati, OH with additional tour legs to be announced soon. The promo tour will mark X’s return to most markets after several years and the dog is anxious to get back into these regions and in front of his fans.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve had the chance to go out and touch the fans. They’ve consistently supported through the ups and downs,” exclaims DMX. “I’m anxious to get back in front of them and return the favor, keeping the focus on incredible music and memorable live shows.”

“We are excited to get back on the road with the “Undisputed: Weigh In” promo tour this summer,” adds DMX manager Jason Fowler. “With X getting the chance to be in front of his fans day in and day out, this project has been a long time coming and the DOG is definitely back. We’re looking at 30-40 cities across the US on the promo run with a full US tour planned in the fall to coincide with the Undisputed album release.”

The first release from the Undisputed album is the club-ready, adrenaline-fueled “I Don’t Dance,” produced by JR Rotem and featuring Cleveland spit-fire rapper and longtime DMX admirer MGK. “I Don’t Dance” will be serviced to radio in the coming weeks and a music video directed by John Colombo will soon follow. DMX is working closely with longtime friends and collaborators Swizz Beats and Dame Grease on the full-length album.

DMX, a Grammy Awards nominee and American Music Awards winner, recently wrapped VH-1 reality show Couples Therapy. His success with past albums like …And Then There Was X (which featured the top-ten hit single “Party Up” and was certified platinum six times) made him the only musical artist in history to release five consecutive albums (his entire album catalog at the time) that debuted at number one on the Billboard charts.

Avicii Follows Up International Smash “Le7els” With New Single “Silhouettes,” Out Today On Le7els / Interscope Records

Red Hot Swedish DJ / Producer and Lollapalooza Headliner, Currently on Le7els Tour in North America

Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Avicii is following up his international smash “Le7els” with a new single, “Silhouettes,” which is being released today, May 29, on LE7ELS/Interscope Records. Featuring a powerhouse vocal from fellow Swede Salem Al Fakir, “Silhouettes” is yet another flawless musical showcase from one of the biggest EDM stars in the world. The track has been added to BBC Radio 1 in the UK, plus other core mainstream radio stations throughout Europe.

“I’ve always been a big fan of Salem and I’m so happy we got to do this track together! It’s been working so well in my sets and it feels so good to finally release it!” says Avicii.

Part of the next generation of electronic music producers to explode alongside the likes of Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia and his sometime collaborator David Guetta (on Guetta’s album Nothing But The Beat), Avicii has emerged as a potent force on the electronic dance music scene, penetrating on both a club and commercial level. “Le7els” climbed to No. 1 on the international Beatport chart as well as on the club charts in Germany and Australia, while the success of prior singles “Seek Bromance,” “Street Dancer” and “Fade Into Darkness” have also propelled him into the ranks of superstar DJs who are able to perform to massive crowds. Avicii has headlined such colossal events as Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Dance Valley, Street Parade and IDentity Festival, as well as performed on the main stage at last year’s Electric Daisy Carnival. This year, he headlined the Ultra Music Festival, performed at Coachella and will headline at Lollapalooza in August.

Avicii, who kicked off 2012 with a philanthropic “House for Hunger” tour that enabled him and his manager Ash Pournouri to personally donate one million dollars to the charity Feeding America. He is currently on the road in the U.S. for his first-ever headlining all-arena trek, the Avicii – Le7els Tour, which has become the biggest dance party of the summer.

Elzhi Announces Summer World Tour Dates, New Album In the Fall

Elzhi, the Detroit rap heavyweight, has announced plans for a Summer World Tour, kicking off on July 12th in Ottawa, Canada and extending well through the Fall. The tour will touch down in over a dozen countries, including Canada, the United States, Germany, and Czech Republic.

Elzhi shocked the hip-hop world last year with the release of his conceptual mixtape, Elmatic, which took its title and inspiration from Nas’ 1994 classic, Illmatic, and consisted of Elzhi putting his own lyrics over those time-honored beats, re-imagined with live instrumentation. It was Elzhi’s first release since his 2008 solo debut album, The Preface, and it catapulted him back to the forefront of hip-hop’s consciousness. Elmatic is available now on itunes.

Elzhi’s world tour will serve not only the thousands of fans who have yet to see him perform his work from Elmatic, but also performing new tracks from his upcoming album set to release this Fall. The tour routing is below, with more dates in Europe, Australia, and Asia to be announced soon.

Doomtree members make cameo appearances at the historic Fitzgerald Theater – Upcoming Doomtree tour dates

This past Saturday P.O.S took the stage taking part in MPR’s ‘Muse for Music’ held at the historic Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN. ‘Muse for Music’ was a special commission from 89.3 The Current which explored “the hidden creative origins and stories surrounding some of music’s most notable songs.” The event was hosted and curated by Jeremy Messersmith and included performances by Doomtree’s P.O.S, Chastity Brown, and storyteller Dave Mondy.

From gibberish words to poetic love lines with special guests to help find enhance the stories told in in song.” The audience is in store for a night of firsts at this one-of-kind event. Sims’ smart, aggressive lyrics and raw delivery will be backed by a lush, soaring orchestration. Tickets are currently available for this show.

Recently recognized by KSTP Channel 5 news for their accomplishments within the Minneapolis hip hop scene Doomtree have been going non-stop in support of their most recent release No Kings.

Shit Robot Shares Tracks From The Green Machine, Out Now via DFA Records

Shit Robot Shares Tracks From The Green Machine, Out Now via DFA Records

Stream Both Tracks via DFA’s Soundcloud

Shit Robot returns with his first new material since the release of his debut long-player, From The Cradle To The Rave, releasing the “Teenage Bass” single with “Space Race,” the first cuts from his new project, The Green Machine. After spending much of 2010 and 2011 touring the globe with his live show – including a string of dates opening/performing with LCD Soundsystem during their final shows in NYC – the rebooted Robot is back with The Green Machine.

The first result of his Stuttgart/New York studio adventures is a double-header of dancefloor jams, “Teenage Bass” b/w “Space Race,” which is now available on vinyl and digitally on DFA Records. It’s the first in a series of releases called The Green Machine, which will culminate in an album early next year.

Lead cut “Teenage Bass” rides a rude EBM bassline and rave alert sirens, before expanding further with key changing chords and a defining arpeggiator. The hypnotic “Space Race” is a distant relative of 2007’s “Chasm” – a meandering, melodic, star-gazing Robo-techno workout.

Speaking about the new release, Shit Robot said: “After the album I just wanted to go back to my roots and make some dance 12”s, music for people to get drunk and jump around to.” In addition, today is the launch of a special Shit Robot contest via DFA Records – email a copy of your receipt for either the vinyl or digital version of the single to for a chance to win a special Shit Robot prize pack.

To mark the new release, Shit Robot will be announcing a series of live The Shit Robot Show/DJ dates across the world, details on those coming soon. In addition, a new range of Shit Robot merchandise is now available from the DFA webstore. You can grab Robot coffee mugs, pins, stamped ‘Wrong Galaxy’ white labels and a rather nifty From The Cradle To The Rave value pack, which includes a vinyl, CD and pin for $15. You can find all that good stuff here.
