According to Billboard, Avicii is cancelling all future shows til further notice. He will not be performing at Tomorrowworld and will most likely resume working on his album starting next year. Read the statement below:
“Reps for Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) confirmed to Billboard that that all touring and promotional activities have been suspended, pending the Swedish dance star’s recovery from lingering health issues related to the surgeries that removed his gallbladder and appendix earlier this year.
Those same surgeries forced Bergling to miss his headlining slot at the 2014 Ultra Music Festival, as well as his Las Vegas residencies during the month of April.
Newly affected performances will include his headlining slot at TomorrowWorld later this month, as well as Las Vegas residencies at XS and Encore Beach Club and a scheduled Asian tour in October.
According to his reps, Avicii will recuperate in his native Stockholm until he has recovered the strength and physical well being necessary to resume work on his second artist album next year.”
The EDM scene has grown exponentially over the last 10-15 years and with its popularity brought thousands of up and coming “artists” in search of the ultimate goal: becoming a world-class Dj/producer – making a living making people dance. Many have failed, and some have become icons for the wrong reasons. This does not fall into either category.
On Friday September 5, Ultra Records is set to release the first single of Kid Arkade -“Atlas Run”. The track starts with a lengthy mellow intro and slow build up. You’ll notice that the production from the first note is very clean and it stays that way throughout the entire track. When the tempo changes so does the mood, giving you a feeling that Kid Arkade is about to drop something great. It is like the calm before the storm.
Once the main melody kicks, you are enchanted by the beauty and simplicity of this progressive track. “Atlas Run” is a great example of the theory that sometimes less is more. With Dubstep and Trap (which I enjoy) saturating the scene, it’s refreshing to see a producer that takes the time to perfect a song which can tell a story rather than following a very typical formula.
Even though the track seems lengthy at first, you’ll learn to appreciate it and all of its parts after a few replays. But be warned… the song is high in energy and will definitely be blasted through speakers for a while. This will not be the last time you will be hearing “Atlas Run”.
If memory serves you well, you know that this year’s edition of Electric Forest Music Festival almost did not come to fruition due to a legal battle. In the end everything worked out and 35,000 attendees from around the world were able to experience the biggest and best Electric Forest to date. That being said we can all sleep a little easier tonight knowing that as of yesterday The Double JJ Ranch and AEG Live, a national concert promotion company which acquired Electric Forest co-organizer Madison House Presents in January, have agreed on a 10-year deal to keep the music festival in Rothbury.
