Live Nation Cancels HARD’s ‘A Night At Fairplex,’ Adds Regulations

News continues to bode ill for Gary Richards and the HARD crew as Live Nation cancels September's A Night At Fairplex and enacts even more stringent regulations for future HARD events.

The cancelation is Live Nation's response to the city-organized investigation into the deaths of two patrons at this last August's HARD Summer. Though the September event will no longer happen, there is a silver lining in that the city's proposed blanket ban on raves on LA county grounds has not come to pass (yet).

October's HARD Day Of The Dead will still go forward as planned, but with an attendance cap at 40,000 compared to HARD Summer's 65,000. The biggest setback for promoters is the new age requirement, which won't allow any patrons under 21 to attend.

Though many in attendance at this past HARD Summer would argue that security was as strict as they have seen it, Live Nation promises even more security in place for DOTD. In addition, HARD will be required to distribute drug education pamphlets, increase access to free water, and add more medical services.

"This is certainly not the end of the story, there will be additional discussions, additional research and additional corrective actions moving forward,’ a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors said about future events. “This is an evolving review, we’re not through with the assessment yet.”

Currently, the report to ban all future raves remains under confidential lock, though a summary cites that there may be a "permanent or temporary ban" pending the review in regards to the proposition's breach in contract with Live Nation, and the potential violation of the first amendment.

HARD fans still look forward to Day Of The Dead happening Halloween weekend, but with somber suspense as the future of large-scale events in Los Angeles hangs in precarious balance.

Bro Safari and Boombox Cartel Blend Bass Styles On ‘Flip’

Riding high on the success of major 2015 hits such as B2U and Jamba, Los Angeles bass-mongers Boombox Cartel appoint Bro Safari to lend a helping hand on their most energetic track to date: Flip.

The song eases in with a velvety breakbeat before splintering into a series of unforgiving trapstep and jersey-inspired drops. This will be right up your street if you're into trap with vivacious drops and epic energy throughout, and it should please both fans of Bro Safari's classic trap sound and Boombox Cartel's new-age hybrid trap/twerk sound. The team finishes the tune by upping the tempo in anticipation of the final devastating twerk drop that Major Lazer himself would be proud of. Flip’s stamina is something to behold; I would love to hear more tracks from this trio.

Illenium Wins Again With Soothing Bass Remix Of Kaskade’s ‘Disarm You’

2015 has seen Illenium possibly be bass music's most prolific producer. For his latest, he takes on Kaskade's recent big room jam Disarm You and transforms it into a a glistening bass anthem.

In releasing roughly two remixes of mainstage winners to one original track, Illenium has been able to both develop a new fanbase and keep them locked into his growth via this strategy. As a remixer, Illenium excels by being able to give massive vocals the room to soar in the mix, while also creating a soulful swing in the bassline, and this remix, which also features shuffling drums and frieze-like synths, is the perfect example.

Grab this tremendous remix here.
