Madonna is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman which is just a few titles mentioned on her ever impressive resume. She achieved popularity by pushing the boundaries of lyrical content in mainstream popular music and imagery in her music videos that still never cease to amaze her fans to this day. Madonna has announced that Diplo, the dance music mega-producer, will help kick off the launch of her Rebel Heart World Tour as the opening act on September 9th and 10th at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. Diplo has produced and co-wrote many of the tracks on the pop legend’s new album, Rebel Heart, including “Bitch I’m Madonna” and “Living For Love.”
Diplo has an impressive growing resume of his own, especially after a massive summer with the platinum-selling success of “Where Are U Now” with Jack U, Justin Bieber, and Major Lazer radio smash “Lean On.” In addition to his music producing and DJing, he founded and manages record company Mad Decent, as well as co-founding the non-profit organization Heaps Decent. As Madonna stated on her website, “To have Diplo open for me is my dream come true. Montreal is about to TURN UP!!!! We Go Hard or We Go Home!” As you can see, this dynamic duo is definitely something you won’t want to miss out on!
This past weekend, Kaskade made the most out of his main stage set at EDC Las Vegas by testing out a new track on the masses. Those who missed out can listen to the live rip below.
About halfway into his performance atop the kineticFIELD stage, he introduces “Disarm You,” to audiences for the first time, ushering in snares and elevated chord progressions that carry singer Ilsey’s vocals to a euphoric high. Little is known of the Californian singer-songwriter, though she was featured in Robin Schulz’s melodic hit, “Headlights,” previous to her work with Kaskade.
“Disarm You” was just one of many tracks to receive massive fanfare during Kaskade’s main stage romp. His tracklist (which he posted on Facebook) consisted heavily of his own music, including festival staples such as “Never Sleep Alone,” “Last Chance” and “We Don’t Stop,” along with some mash-ups and his ever-contentious remix of Jack Ü’s Justin Bieber collaboration “Where Are Ü Now.”
In addition to his main stage appearance, he also performed a sunrise Redux set that same night. Check out his track, “Disarm You”, below.
