TomorrowWorld Lineup Doubles With Phase 2 Headliners

ID&T's North American expansion TomorrowWorld released its Phase II lineup, adding Bassnectar, Kaskade, live shows by Porter Robinson and Rudimental, and more to the third annual weekend festival outside Atlanta.

The balanced second addition offers a little bit of everything except possibly for trance, which was represented to an extent in Phase I by Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, and Ferry Corsten. Lucky fans headed to Chattahoochee Hills, Ga. Sept. 25-27 will now catch acts from Bro Safari, Gramatik, and Seven Lions to Maya Jane Coles, The Magician, and Guy Gerber as they join the already-announced 20 names or so in Phase I.

The SFX-owned festival looks to build upon the success of 2014, which not only saw increased attendance, but local economic impact, which rose 16 percent from 2013 to a total of $93 million. For comparison, EDC Las Vegas infused $334 million into the Clark County economy in the same year.

See the complete lineup announcement below. Get more info and tickets here.

Splice Announces Sample Subscription Service, Splice Sounds

Splice, the cloud-based collaboration/sharing service for producers, has announced a new premium subscription service, Splice Sounds. The service will allow producers to access an almost endless database of sounds, samples, and loops for a monthly fee, as well as allowing producers to backup and share their own creations.

In a world that increasingly uses cloud computing to store and share data, a service such as Splice makes perfect sense, and could well revolutionize the world of music production. As many budding producers will be well aware, online collaboration through forums and the like is nothing new, so a service that makes the process easier and more hands on is a long overdue development. Splice Sounds takes the process one step further, allowing not just project files and ideas to be shared, but also the very sounds that make up productions. It's something the industry is also looking to embrace, with leading sample companies Loopmasters and Sample Magic already on board. The thinking is that producers previously either had to spend large sums on entire sample packs to access perhaps one or two sounds they wanted, or pirate sample packs--a practice which clearly damages the industry.

The pricing plan is two-tier, with Level 1 costing $7.99 per month for 100 "credits" and Level 2 costing $13.99 per month for 300 "credits." The "credits" translate into a single sound each, which a user is then licensed to use forever.

Flosstradamus & Fetty Wap Want You To Come ‘My Way’

Trap dons Flosstradamus (pictured) continue to load up on the artillery for their summer festival sets by collaborating with Jersey's DJ 4B on a trap remix of fellow Garden State-based rapper/crooner Fetty Wap's pop single My Way. ​

"Baby won't you come my way" is the hook that's hot on the lips of Top 40 fans heading into the summer, and it fills the top line on this remix, too. The original's ambient sections balance well with the seemingly jet-propulsed melody on the hook as searing synths soar through the mix. The track is topped off by a rough, 808-laden bassline keeping the track grounded in its hip hop roots. ​

This peak-hour sing-a-long anthem is available for download here.

Disclosure & Flume Are Throwing A Party In A Medieval Castle

Throw Disclosure and Flume (pictured, far right) together on a lineup and you get us excited. Host the event inside a medieval fortress? Excuse us while we pick our collective jaws up off the floor.

On July 7, Disclosure will take their Wild Life event series to Ibiza, more specifically the Castle of Ibiza in Dalt Vila, a fortress build in the 16th century. Dalta Vila is a 2,500 year old UNESCO World Heritage site that features Roman walls, cobbled streets, and mesmerizing views of the island. Disclosure calls the castle one of their “favourite venues” in the world, and we expect you to agree with them once you check out photos of the fortress, which can be seen below.

Trap Tuesdays 103

Feeling a little hungover after watching Glastonbury Festival last weekend? Don't worry, Trap Tuesdays is here to help, because we all know there's nothing like loud, bass-heavy music for a headache! This week brings new trap music from Penthouse Penthouse, Crywolf, and Ramzoid, as well as some frantic tunes from YULTRON, and Jayceeoh & Riot Ten.

Ramzoid - Standing On A Cliff (Original Mix)
Simplicity makes this track a bit special. Together with the lower BPM, Ramzoid's use of unique delays and other outside-the-box FX is something fresh that you need to hear.
Free Download

Crywolf feat. EDEN - Stomach It (Original Mix)
This track kicks off with an acoustic ballad from EDEN before slowly descending into a chill trap anthem. The use of live instruments is something I love to hear in a song, and I want to hear more like this!

Elijah Blake feat. Dej Loaf - I Just Wanna... (Penthouse Penthouse Remix)
Penthouse Penthouse upgrades Elijah Blake's original with some subtle vocal effects and new melodies. If feel-good is your thing, you'll love this.

Jayceeoh & Riot Ten - Hold It Down (Original Mix)
When you mix precise wubs like these with a hardstyle tempo it makes something pretty mean. Jayceeoh and Riot Ten's combined ability to produce epic sounding anthems is something to behold.
Free Download

YULTRON - Milk Was A Bad Choice (Original Mix)
I couldn't not feature this! Although very tongue-in-cheek, it is indeed a certified banger. Cheese was a good choice!
