26. I came back with a silly grin.

and we all agreed it was time to set out and begin our countdown to midnight.

Into the plunging, drumming rain we went, heading for whump, whump, whump of the Zone lighting up the dark in the distance, all oranges and purples, and looking like some sort of fantastical castle.

Past the red roofed structure of the DnB Zone, past the Happy Hardcore and House tents, past the car-park-sized crater of the fire pit, a weak bonfire at its bottom, hissing, forging on, through the snarls of other wet wayfarers and into the growing roar, the slop and suck of our footsteps, our heads bent, our hands pocketed, until, just as a breakdown began, as the bass was stripped and all was lulled and left strangely silent, we reached the battered edge of the Zone.

In we went.

In until the crowd constricted, stopped and didn’t go any further. I felt my feet sink. I wiped water from my face. I breathed deep and deeper again.

I got ready to let go.

In the wild night - big and bold, I could see Darius and Charley in front, big Dan and Joseph either side. Beyond, a dark carpet phosphorescent with lights and lasers, surging with excitement, brawling with desire, and unspooling to a remote robotic head glistening blue against black. In the yellow of its gaping mouth Baitercell was hard at work and deep in the mix; TV screens to either side swirled with visuals.

There was a distinctive psssssshhhhhht.

Charley also hard at work. Nitrous Oxide. He passed back a balloon round and full. I took it and widened my stance, inhaled half its cold contents, held it for a second, blew it back, inhaled it all. The world fell away. Sound pulsed: Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa. Big Dan propped me up.

I was gone for a minute.

I came back with a silly grin.

      The Vice President of Finance and Strategic Initiatives at Live Nation Entertainment, Andrew Macrae, has been arrested following the discovery that he routinely use a pen camera to take photos up women’s skirts on his daily London commute.
      A Live Nation employee since 2004, Macrae was caught capturing the illicit images by an off-duty Metropolitan Police officer after he was observed “acting suspiciously.”
      Macrae would obscure the camera by placing it partially inside of a laptop bag and then place the bag on the ground between the victim’s legs. Macrae drew the attention of the officer by “changing the angle of the bag, which he had placed between the legs of a blonde female wearing a red summer dress.” Macrae was promptly arrested and escorted to a south London police station.
      Prosecutor Angela Mehadio has since informed the court handling the case that Macrae had “admitted his intention was to film up skirts for personal and sexual gratification.”
      Officers have uncovered 49,000 additional images after searching Macrae’s home in Redhill. Authorities determined that Macrae had not only been filming unsuspecting victims on the train, but a female neighbor and house guest as well. Macrae has pleaded guilty to seven counts of voyeurism for the filming offences conducted from his home over a three-year period, further admitting to one count of outraging public decency between Clapham Junction and Vauxhall stations on July 19.
      A married father, Macrae did not enter pleas on two additional counts of outraging public decency. Macrae is set to appear in court on November 7 for his sentencing.
      Macrae has been relieved of his duties at Live Nation Entertainment.
      The company has since released a statement on Macrae’s actions: “This matter is still before the courts and as such we are unable to comment on the case. We can confirm that these charges have been made against the individual personally and that he was terminated by Live Nation Entertainment in July 2017 following his arrest. Live Nation strongly condemns Macrae’s acts and is outraged by his offensive and criminal behavior which has no place at our company, city or the world at large.”

      um.. have never been ones for subtlety. With their latest song, they’re making a bold and definitive statement: “this is out last song.”
      I’ve been working with this particular duo literally since the very beginning. I was the first to interview them for a major EDM publication, I began a popular story series with them based on their track titles, and I’m lucky enough to call them personal friends. Hell, I’ve even taken them to the zoo. (Seriously.) This news has blindsided me and I’m sure the rest of their fanbase, as well.
      They’ve just come off of two massive performances at Shambhala and Lost Lands, closing out the main stage at the latter. For them to call it quits at such a pivotal moment in their career, things must really not be going well behind the scenes.
      In a reddit AMA two months ago, Ben of um.. revealed that after “our last song,” the duo would disband, citing creative differences.


      It’s really hard to believe that these two are disbanding… but it’s hard to argue with the evidence. Listen to “this is our last song” below.

      It’s only been about two weeks since Crankdat’s last release, a remix for Zeds Dead’s “Ratchet.”
      In our recent interview with Crankdat, he mentions his blistering production speed, and we can see that he’s already set to release his new single tomorrow, October 20. What makes this single special is that it features none other than T-Pain… seriously? Awesome.
      The singer/rapper notorious for making auto-tune cool again actually has a really good natural voice, so it will be interesting to see which style he employs on this new record, titled “In The Air.” But based on the previews from his Snapchat (which you can hear below) it seems to be the latter.
      We’re definitely looking forward to the second original single from Crankdat, out tomorrow, “In The Air.”
