north american music

[run river north || run river north (self-titled album)]

i woke up this morning and turned on my tv to vh1 and started working on emails in bed like i do every morning. at some point, “monsters calling home” came on and i stopped what i was doing and looked up expecting to see some new interpretation of “of monsters and men” but my jaw dropped when i saw six asians armed with violins, guitars, keys, and drums making beautiful music.

run river north is a group of korean americans from the san fernando valley, and got their big break from jimmy kimmel last year and were eventually signed to a canadian label. this is their debut album for your streaming pleasure. 

guitarist daniel chae says: “Our parents sacrificed their lives for us, and I think that’s why there’s such a strong sense of family in each of us. There is that expectation of, ‘Because we did this for you, we hope you have a good job. We hope you can live the American dream.’ And we finally find that in music now.”

and the water will come down
and wash you down
and let you see what you would be
if you’d have known what’s right or wrong
or what is fun
woke up early, feel that itch
what i’mma do know with this nitch?
do i belong? who is it that i am?
what is it that i’m for?
who’s that in my skin?
has he done much for me?
what is it that he says?
does he talk about me?
and the water will come down
and wash you down
and let you see what you would be
if you’d have known what’s right or wrong
or what is fun
woke up early, feel that itch
what i’mma do know with this nitch?
do i belong? who is it that i am?
what is it that i’m for?
who’s that in my skin?
has he done much for me?
what is it that he says?
does he talk about me?
when i learn not to think of thinking
and think
doing is doing, doing is nothing
nothing is doing, while you don’t do
when i learn not to think of thinking
and think

Electric Daisy Carnival In Trouble Due To All The DJs Beefing After Calling Each Other Out

In an unforeseen chain of events this week; several notable names in Dance Music took to Twitter in order to rant and call out fellow industry namesakes due to the rampant over-use of ghost writers, buying chart/magazine placement, nose picking habits, drug use, panty fetishes and so on.  This butterfly effect of butthurt has touched almost every promoter and EDM record label around the globe; many egos have been badly damaged beyond repair.  The ripple effect of those with their panties in a bunch is hitting hardest at The Insomniac Events Offices in Los Angeles, CA.  In 2 weeks Insomniac Events is scheduled to host the largest North American EDM music festival in Las Vegas, NV; but sources closes to the event tell us its likely most of the larger headliners are slated to cancel or the event could be pulled all together. 



Our source at Insomniac Events has informed us that their offices have been berated with calls since Tuesday from industry personnel and sometimes the DJs themselves who are demanding to speak with talent buyers or the company CEO.  Some of the biggest acts have made it clear that they intend to refuse to board their flights to the event if specific demands aren’t met.  Event organizers may be left with no other choice than to postpone or possibly cancel the event entirely.  The laundry list of gripes includes (but is not limited to):

  • DJs refusing to be at the same event as other DJs.
  • DJs refusing to go on or after certain DJs or share the same stage.
  • Name placement on the flyer disputes (names are in alphabetical order; Tiesto is threatening to change his name to ATiesto).
  • DJs playing at the same time on a different stage as another DJ.
  • Generic whiny temper-tantrums of “its just not fair”.
  • DJs complaining that they weren’t called out on line and thus not getting as much attention publicly. 


Shots were first fired online this week when Mat Zo criticized Tiesto, Diplo, Markus Schulz and Carnage for pay-to-play antics and avid use of ghost writers who have made the vast majority of their production endeavors.  Carnage replied immediately via his online accounts and cursed Mat Zo for telling the world what we already knew.  Deadmau5, while not originally a target of Zo, took the liberty of making sure to air Mat’s dirty laundry himself and explained why Mau5Trap Music wouldn’t pick up Mat Zo’s newest album (because it sucked).  Diplo eventually got around to responding a day later and ultimately threw Zedd under the bus for a fabricated relationship with Selena Gomez and lackluster original tracks.  Markus Schulz called his mom and his mom called Mat Zo’s mom; its official… Markus and Mat are no longer friends.  Jabs and zingers, more than we can count, have made serious rounds across agencies and public relations reps this week.  Oddly enough, the one DJ we were surprised to see avoid the onslaught of insults was none other than David Guetta.  However, thats possibly because David is too stupid to understand whats going on most of the time.
