Almost one year ago to the day (September 8th, 2014), we brought you the news that Avicii had cancelled all of his future performances due to health issues. Today, it was announced that Avicii will, again, be canceling the rest of his 2015 schedule and events.

Essentially, Avicii’s team noted that the pressure to deliver Stories, his insane summer schedule in Ibiza and XS Vegas residency, and the directing of the music videos to his singles, “For a Better Day” and “Pure Grinding” were ultimately too much for Avicii to handle, and thus needs a break. Here’s what Avicii had to say to Billboard, who broke the story:

“I look forward to keep being innovative with my team in leading a bigger change than just with my music. In moving my tour promotional responsibilities to next year, I have a great opportunity to focus on myself and spend time trying to grow up in a way I never got the chance to – normal, or as normal as it could get. My team, label and family have encouraged me to do that and I realize not many in my position get that opportunity.”

Avicii had shows at XS and Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas, Storm Festival in Shanghai and Japan’s Fuji-Ku Conifer Forest and Maishima Special Stage, all of which he will be pushing to sometime in 2016.

Kygo – Nothing Left (The Golden Pony Remix)

556 views

Kygo‘s, “Nothing Left,” gets the Deep House remix treatment from The Golden Pony, and man do these guys crush it! The deep house vibes mixed with the vocals from the original track make this remix one that’ll be tough to top. Here’s what the guys had to say about the track:

“We remember seeing Kygo’s remix’s on Soundcloud a few years back and thinking that it was a fresh and interesting sound. Little did we know he would ultimately create a whole new sub genre of music, and that his signature metallic plucks are now being incorporated into a wide variety of musical styles from Trap to Pop music!

The vocal in “Nothing Left” really grabbed us as it has a soulful, almost gospel quality, which is something we gravitate towards. We sped up the vocal considerably to get it to a house music tempo (which luckily worked out), and then worked on getting some bangin’ bass and drum rhythms that will fit into our dj sets!” – The Golden Pony

605 views

The duo is back with another remix! You don’t have to be a Rita Ora fan to appreciate this (I’m not) because they did an awesome job turning this track into a deep house joint. Show Lash some love on Facebook. Tomorrow night also kicks off #NCAAF FBS play!!

“You’re probably used to our banging/future sound from our last two releases, but we wanted to switch it up a little and make something a little more melodic to close out summer. Rita’s voice is too perfect not to make a beautiful melodic track like this. Hope you guys enjoy this as much as we enjoyed making it for you!”
