After Richards left Live Nation, many upset members ShipFam, as they call themselves, opted out attending Holy Ship this year, ten repeating the phrase “No Gary, No Ship.” Well, they now have a new ship to join thankfully. Even Dirtybird Records, who have been a staple the ShipFam community, originally decided to pull out Holy Ship, but ultimately decided to stay for the sake the fans who already bought cabins.

Friendship will be LiveStyle’s first festival cruise, under Richard’s AMFAMFAMF property. AMF is an acronym for “All My Friends,” which certainly seems to be the theme here.

With Friendship now a reality, how will Holy Ship fare with both its number attendees, as well as its lineup? Will the staples the Holy Ship community “jump ship,” so to speak?

The lineup for Friendship won’t be out for awhile, but you can sign up for e-mail updates at . We are eager to see how this new event plays out.


Brody Jenner Taunts Thomas Jack For Not Doing a "Shoey"

Brody Jenner Taunts Thomas Jack For Not Doing a "Shoey"

 

Is there anything more annoying for a DJ then when someone is constantly making song requests during their set? The answer is: yes! Brody Jenner has unficially become the spokesperson for “How To Annoy A Producer 101”.

During Thomas Jack‘s set on Groove Cruise, the television personality put his love for pestering to test by insisting that the Australian artist to do a “shoey”.

If you are unfamiliar with this party trick, it’s when you drink beer out one’s shoe. The ritual is occasionally undertaken at parties and events in Australia – maybe that’s why the socialite thought that this act may have been appropriate to undertake with one the country’s most well-known musicians…

Although the behavior may have derived from an innocent idea, the execution was not well-received. The ‘‘ DJ was put on the spot during his set by the persistent star, declined the pushy request immediately, while Jenner continued to insist that he take “just a sip”.

When that didn’t work in his favor, he continued to talk smack about the artist’s pression.

The American actor is also, technically I guess, a DJ. You would think that he would understand, more than anyone, everything that producer had to handle while they’re onstage.

We hope that Jenner has learned that interrupting an artist during his set is not the way to go. We also hope that he lays f the “shoey’s” because he seems to enjoy doing them a little too much, especially on airplanes.

Being the first episode, there were some corky moments when Kaskade needed to find a mic stand while complaining about how expensive his Wifi was. But once he hit the decks, it was about as funky and groovy as you could imagine.

With cameras covering all angles, you’ll get to watch exactly how Kaskade spins his music. You’ll hear new music from Sander Kleinenberg, Hi-Lo and Dada Life, Chromeo, and Marcus Schossow. In this episode, Kaskade was on CDJ’s but in the future, he plans to use vinyl instead.

Many years ago, Kaskade used to have his own radio podcast called Another Night Out. Hopefully, this series is better and longer lasting. We know his fans would like nothing more. You can check out the first episode the Arkade Live Stream below.

Getter Trancends EDM By Perfectly Crossbreeding Trap And Metal

Getter – Colorblind

Getter is back and better than ever with a hauntingly mesmerizing new track, ‘Colorblind‘. The California based producer is consistently experimenting with new material, his alias Terror Reid being a perfect example this man’s multi talents. He has been immersed into the EDM scene since he was only seventeen and has since then evolved into a musical genius, his track ‘Head Splitter‘ reaching over 20 million views on Youtube.

This time around he’s changing the game by doing what few have been able to do successfully: he crossbred trap with metal. This track manages to switch between the two genres satisfyingly well. ‘Colorblind’ starts out slow and steady with a heavy bass line, then eases into screaming vocals by Getter himself. The lyrics on this track are intense, like a spiritual manifesto perfectly curated into a song you can mosh and headbang to. The last minute and a half ‘Colorblind’ is any metal lover’s dream come true. Getter really transcended the scene with this one. Check out his latest concoction below.
