      A slew of dance legends have opened up about the immense mental and physical toll of professional DJing in an eye-opening new documentary, Why We DJ — Slaves To The Rhythm. 
      The DJ Sounds produced doco was premiered recently at Amsterdam Dance Event, and features in-depth and candid discussions about mental health and addiction with acts such as Erick Morillo, Carl Cox, Luciano, Seth Troxler, Ben Pearce, and Pete Tong.
      The 40-minute film points to factors including creative pressure, constant media attention, omnipresent drugs and alcohol, and extreme sleep deprivation caused by a relentless touring schedules as to some of the reasons DJs experience such poor mental health.

That’s when it gets a bit sad. That’s why I think many DJs have problems with drugs, or even sex addiction — it’s just to cure the loneliness.”
      “We’ve lost a lot of people to drugs,” Troxler adds. “A lot of really talented people. They just kind of…floated to the wayside.”
      “I was drinking every day and chucking my life down the drain,” Ben Pearce confesses later in the film. “It got to a point that I knew that if I didn’t do something about it, I wouldn’t be around much longer.”
      Despite the obvious issues DJs face, Pete Tong says artists struggle to get support and sympathy: “Everyone’s got that image in their head of private jets and champagne…but the touring life of a DJ is really hard.”
      Why We DJ — Slaves To The Rhythm is now online, watch it below.

      ODESZA has released a behind the scenes video illustrating the decisive events and artistic process that led to video accompaniment to their collaborative single with Leon Bridges, “Across The Room.” The breezy piano ballad, sung by Bridges, was released on ODESZA’s newest album A Moment Apart. 
      According to the video, Bridges had been a “dream collab” for the ODESZA boys for quite some time. Conversely, Bridges admits he had not heard of the duo prior to their reaching out to him; though later in the video he satisfactorily reports they are “the coolest cats” he has worked with thus far in his career.
      Both ODESZA and Bridges emphasize the creative energy discernible between them in their first meeting, which incited the eight hour studio session resulting in “Across The Room.”

      Noya based in the Northeast is gearing up for a ton of new music through Warpaint Records and the next 12 months looks to be an onslaught of music and bass for our enjoyment.

      Amidst news that the iPhone 7 is still far outselling the new iPhone 8 series, Apple’s stock has fallen 2.4 percent. This is in conjunction with reports out of Taiwan that, according to the NY Post, Apple has “slashed orders for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus by nearly 50 percent for the rest of the year.” [emphasis ours]
      This isn’t terribly surprising, given the horrid marketing and timing of the iPhone 8. With the iPhone 8 only barely better than its predecessor, and another, better phone on the way soon after, the iPhone 8 was doomed to fail from the very beginning. iPhone 7 is still $150 cheaper than the iPhone 8, as well.
      According to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, “Apple has never cut production of an iPhone so early in the cycle.”

      A strange YouTube video could have something to do with the recent success of Post Malone‘s #1 hit song “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage…
      The official upload by Malone’s label Republic Records features the song’s chorus on a loop for 3:38 straight — and it flows so well that listeners might not even notice it’s not the actual track. This is perhaps a ploy to grab people’s attention immediately with the catchiest part of “Rockstar,” and the play count seems to agree.
      The looped clip, which links to the full version on all streaming platforms, already has over 44 million views and counting. That makes for an average of more than a million views per day, and could very well have something to do with “Rockstar” reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Much like a remix counts toward a song’s success on the charts, this looped video could be racking up critical plays for the rapper.
      Check out the video in question below and follow along with the lyrics… By the end of the loop you’ll have the chorus down, no problem.
      I’ve been fuckin’ hoes and poppin’ pillies
      Man, I feel just like a rockstar (star)
      Ayy, ayy, all my brothers got that gas
      And they always be smokin’ like a Rasta
      Fuckin’ with me, call up on a Uzi
      And show up, man them the shottas
      When my homies pull up on your block
      They make that thing go grrra-ta-ta-ta (pow, pow, pow)
