Emancipator has announced a remix album for his record Dusk to Dawn, and he is giving fans a chance to be included on the album. The track "Valhalla" still needs a remix, and Emancipator is giving fans an opportunity to have their remix of the song included on the record. You can download the stems of the track here, and when you're done, upload your finished product to the remix contest Soundcloud group. Good luck to any producers/musicians thinking of entering this!

And the podcast returns. This week's episode has us looking at Thomas's change in career and the stages of life and jobs and everything related to growing up and older. We talk about what my long term plans for running AbsolutePunk may look like, or turn into, and where we see ourselves in a few years. We spend some time looking back at everything that's gone on over the past two weeks with Pure Noise Records, Set if Off, Warped Tour, the YouTubers, and that whole ... thing. Then, thanks to listener Lauren, we're able to take a lighthearted break to fantasize about where we'd want to live if we weren't living in the United States. Beer and beach please. We finish up this week's episode...

This Century are breaking up.
We have decided as a band that after eight amazing and fulfilling years, we will be closing this chapter of our lives and stepping out into the next. This band has allowed us to grow and learn more about each other than we ever thought we would, and we all feel like we’re better people because of that and because of you guys. We love each other like brothers, we always have and we always will, so we’re happy to say this isn’t a result of anything negative. This Century has been an amazing experience, but we unanimously agreed while we were making this new album that it was time to move on to pursue each of our passions and musical projects. We wanted to see...

Spotify announced some new things today, MacStories has a good rundown.
Spotify is also revamping their music recommendation features with a simpler Now page. By combining editorial curation with algorithms for intelligent suggestions, Spotify wants to encourage users to start listening to music in different times of the day with a simplified UI that doesn't require users to carefully browse music and assemble playback queues. Spotify has been building up their curation features over the past year, highlighting curated playlists that are presented in the app depending on when a user opens Spotify's Discover section. It appears that Now is based upon the company's existing curated picks,...

Thomas Nassiff is here to convince you to listen to Bruce Springsteen. Is that the guy that sounds like Brian Fallon?
The quintessential starting point for Springsteen is your dad’s favorite album, Born to Run. In his early days, Springsteen was very much a “DIY” type of artist – he and his band would play in and around New Jersey, go on small tours and generally jam a lot. Remember, this was the ’70s, and there was no true rapid-fire success to be found. Columbia Records signed Springsteen to an album deal in the hopes that it was signing the next Bob Dylan. But while Springsteen is majorly influenced by Dylan, he has never been content to restrict his art to just himself and an...

Kanye West's representatives have shared a statement about his overly censored Billboard Music Awards performance.
Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards. Non-profane lyrics such as “with my leather black jeans on” were muted for over 30 second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented. It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against.

Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.

Riot Fest is moving from Humboldt Park to Douglas Park.
Recently, as evidenced in the media, there were those who attempted to divide the Humboldt Park community with unfair and unjust tactics that in no way represent the overwhelming majority of the 26th Ward residents and businesses. And while Riot Fest supporters stressed that without question, Riot Fest has done nothing short of showing their unparalleled devotion to the city and the neighborhood they called home, Riot Fest partners, Michael Petryshyn and Sean McKeough made the ethical decision not to allow the festival to be used as a pawn and removed Riot Fest from the conversation regarding the ever-changing face of Humboldt Park
