It appears Twitch has lifted their ban of Deadmau5, doing so about 30 days after the EDM artist was banned from Twitch streams for hate speech.
Deadmau5 took to social media to rant about the ban when it was first levied on him, calling his ban “double standard when it comes to censoring and suspending”, but later apologized for his comments saying; “I know what I said was wrong, and my hastily composed non-apology was an insult to injury.”
“They (Twitch) had every right to ban me for that, it was clearly in violation of their terms.”
It will be interesting to see what happens from here as Deadmau5 has stated that even if his ban from Twitch was lifted, he would not return to the platform to carry on his own, or participate in other Twitch channels.
Twitch has come under fire as of late for what many claim is an unbalanced and unfair governing system when it comes to suspensions, bans, and punishments as the platform continues to grow in the realm of esports teams, popular brands, sports, female streamers, and more live content.
Fortnite developer Epic Games has officially unveiled the numbers from their Marshmello branded concert event that dominated Twitch streams earlier this year.
According to The Verge, who cited Epic Games, 10.7 million people attended the Marshmello in-game concert, which topped the previous largest in-game event that took place back in November when the mysterious purple cube was destroyed.
It’s no secret that musicians have been finding cross-over success with either appearing on, or engaging in their own Twitch channels, and leveraging Fortnite’s, and Twitch‘s, overwhelming popularity seems to have been a brilliant idea.
It will be interesting to see how more EDM musicians proceed with both gaming and streaming moving forward, as there are plenty of opportunities to work with Twitch, Mixer streams, and a number of sub-sections of the streaming community such as female streamers.
In anticipation of his upcoming album ‘Neon Future II’, Steve Aoki has dropped a brand new big room banger, in collaboration with TWIIG, called ‘Hoovela’ that many are saying is some of the iconic artists’ best work in years.
Halloween is right around the corner and a number of artists are taking part in the October-long celebration by releasing some spooky, Halloween themed tracks, and Whipped Cream’s new track ‘Blood’ is no exception.
“This is my first original record in 9 months that I will be sharing. I took the last 9 months, to properly project what goes on inside my mind and put it into my music and I’m really happy I did that as I grew a lot more into my higher self. I have always been inspired by world sound and cinematic sound. Blood is a perfect blend of both yet also maintains an energy the human body will move to. I’m really happy to start this next chapter with this song and finish this year off with more of my new music, each of which tells their own story. WHIPPED CREAM SZN is officially here” – C
Although it wasn’t promoted as being a song made for Halloween, or for the scary holiday season of October, AViVa’s new song, ‘Bloody Sunday’, has the vibe that perfectly suits the month of October and the Halloween season.
Featuring Treyy G, the song which had been teased for well over a month, finally arrived and has plenty of creepy sounds that capture the Halloween season.
Kygo, along with his lontime manager Myles Shear, has officially launched his label, in partnership with Sony Records, called Palm Tree Records.
“I’ve always been very fond of working with talented, undiscovered artists in my own releases” Kygo said in a release. “It’s been an amazing process to watch these artists grow, and now I’m able to help projects I love by offering a label and management service with an incredible team.”
“Kygo is one of the most forward-thinking and exciting artists in music today, and Myles is among the most innovative, creative artist developers around. This feels like a natural extension of our partnership as we develop together the musical output of Palm Tree Records.”
No artists have been officially announced on the label just yet.
Collaborations are often times explosive and that can certainly be the case as The Chainsmokers and NGHTMRE has teamed up for a collaborative track called “Save Yourself” that officially dropped over this weekend.
All artists commented on the collaboration, which you can see below:
“Tyler(NGHTMRE) has been a good friend of ours for some time and we always talked about how great it would be to work together on a song. We have always been a huge fan of his style of producing and thought that if we came together on a song we could make something really unique and badass, and the idea of making something really gnarly was very appealing. We come from the dance world, those are our roots and we are really excited to release a song that is deeply rooted in that with NGHTMRE. We think our fans will be really excited about this one!” – The Chainsmokers.
“The guys and I had been talking about working on something together for a little while. I was excited to hear they wanted to create a heavier track with more of a festival vibe. Everything just came together so perfectly in the end and the track has been smashing in our live shows. Hope you guys like it as much as we do!”-NGHTMRE
Ganja White Night has dropped a brand new music video, their unique vision for their track ‘Chak Chel’ which brings to life the story told throughout the track, one which is filled with trippy drums and melodic tones.
No, that isn’t a typo in the headline. Dance music pioneer Paul Oakenfold will make history this September when he becomes the first ever DJ to play at UNESCO World Heritage site Stonehenge, the mysterious landmark.
While only 50 guests, invite only, will witness the historic event first hand, Oakenfold will record the performance to share with fans later on ‘Live At Stonehenge’.
“I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site,” said Oakenfold, according to MixMag. “The energy there will be like nowhere else on earth, and this will be reflected in my music and performance.
“Despite having performed at incredible events and locations all across the globe, sunset at Stonehenge will be the most magical.”
All funds raised from the historic show will go to English Heritage, a charity that preserves over 400 historic sites.
