  1. After releasing “Love That Never” and “Fried for the Night,” TOKiMONSTA has officially revealed her next album, Oasis Nocturno, out March 20. The announcement was made the same day as the music video of “Fried for the Night” with EARTHGANG, a wildly trippy look into a night out. At the same time, TOKi has announced a 2020 tour in support of the album, kicking off at Coachella. Sign up now at TOKiMONSTA.com/#tour before presale starts on Tuesday.

  2. Apple and Google make it easy to leave your wallet be when it's time to pay at the register, but now there are murmurs about factoring out your smartphone as well. The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon shops and other merchants could offer a hand-based payment system. Your credit card or account info would be linked to your palms, so when checking out you'd just put out your hand. Scan it and you're set. The terminals could be used at any store, not just Amazon-owned ones. Early talks with financial institutions suggest the powers-that-be are mulling connecting customer payment info to the hand-readers. Read more...

  3. One of Malaa‘s fan favorite tracks just got a 2020 upgrade. Plus, a full tour announcement to go with it. The “Bling Bling” (2020 Remix) is out now via Confession, kicking off the new year with the same vigor and charisma that fueled Malaa’s inevitable takeover of the dance music scene. In 2020, “Bling Bling” rocks a totally revamped, extended build and an intoxicating bassline laced with filth, matched with the notorious one liner — Every time I come around your city, Bling Bling! Though the OG version of “Bling Bling” still hits, this is the remix we didn’t know we needed until today. The official remix pack exposed five productions from Matroda, Delayers, Bart B, Volac and Hugo — and now we get to hear Malaa’s own reimagined expertise with this 2020 banger. In addition, the Bling Bling North American Tour kicks off February 27th, spanning 10 dates at some of the most iconic clubs across the country. Malaa will also make his highly-anticipated Coachella debut later this year. Listen below and get tickets at malaamusic.com.

  4. 2020 is kicking off to a great start for both Black Tiger Sex Machine and Blanke, both set to embark on the Futuristic Thriller tour tomorrow. But also because they just dropped their collaboration, “Time Travel.” “Time Travel” hits ferociously will a particularly strong sense of impending doom — I guess that’s why time travel is necessary, after all. With a powerfully dark lead synth and some really dirty stabs and sweeps filling in the background, it definitely sounds like a scene straight out of a Terminator battlefield. It’s also one of the heaviest tracks we’ve heard from Blanke. Tickets for a majority of the Futuristic Thriller dates are still available here, get them now while you can!

  5. Armin van Buuren gives us three new ways to experience music from his most recent album, Balance. Balance (Remixes, Pt. 1) not only celebrates the iconic producer’s seventh studio album, it sets a new pace for 2020. i_o, Erly, and Genix lay down three drastically different vibes for the remix EP. From the darkest, grittiest underground rave to the most extravagant main stage, these remixes are sure to shine no matter where they play out. Upon the album’s release, Armin stated: Every song I make teaches me something new, and the next song is always a result of all my previous records, the new things I learned and the people I met. Over the years, this process — and especially the fun of creating – became more and more important to me. It’s a journey that gives me meaning and helps me learn more about my personal interests rather than focus on the recognition I get for the outcome. That’s the big difference between who I am today and who I was a few years ago. ‘BALANCE’ is a new chapter in my book of life, the result of venturing into known and unknown territories while finding the balance in between. Listen to these fresh, new perspectives on Balance right here. Armin van Buuren – Balance (Remixes, Pt. 1) Photo via Rukes.com This article was first published on Your EDM.

  6. It’s been three years since Mura Masa’s last album, his self-titled Mura Masa. In the time since, he’s grown from underground sensation to main stage darling, bringing with him a flurry of inspirations and soundscapes. In his new album, R.Y.C, which stands for “raw youth collage,” he takes the next step in the evolution of his sound. Whereas Mura Masa could have even been considered very pop in many place, R.Y.C is demonstrably indie. Bearing resemblance to early works from Bearson, Tokyo Police Club, El Ten Eleven, maybe even Passion Pit, the album is characterized by lots of soft instrumentation, a singer/songwriter vibe, and hardly any (noticeable) production on top, at least in terms of dance music. Speaking to Zane Lowe about the album on Beats 1, Mura Masa said, “I wanted to make music that sounded like music that I grew up with, but without kind of doing it in a pastiche way. So yeah, there’s some twists and turns. It was very different from the last album, because on the last one I just kind of wanted to make interesting pop music and include everyone’s voice as they want it to include it. But with this one, I made like a brief document and I talked to the collaborators for hours before we even recorded anything. And what I found was everybody can relate to this subject. Everyone has their own experience of nostalgia, and like there’s this communal sense of … it’s kind of like a melancholy for the past, but it’s also there’s a hopefulness to it.” That sense of nostalgia is present throughout the album; though, as Mura Masa lets on, everyone will experience it differently. For me, it takes me back to 2010 and my first year in college, my first Coachella, my first festival, my first mass exposure to new kinds of music I’d never seen or heard before. For others, it will likely be different. No matter how R.Y.C leaves you feeling after you listen, it’s hard to deny that it has a particular delicate beauty to it that is hard to dislike. Give it a shot below, maybe listen to it a couple times, try it with headphones, and let yourself fade into the past. This article was first published on Your EDM.

  7. TL;DR: Add something impressive to your résumé with The Essential Cloud and Networking Certification Training Bundle for $39.99, a 97% savings. While slapping a certification on your résumé won't get you hired all by itself, there's no doubt that it will give you a leg up on your competition. While there's a lot of grey area for recruiters to navigate on any given CV (what does proficient in Microsoft Word actually mean?), certifications are more black and white and signal to recruiters you, in fact, have a level of authority in your chosen field. If you're looking to advance in the IT world, where salaries are lucrative and the jobs are competitive, you'll definitely want an accreditation or two under your skills section. And The Essential Cloud and Networking Certification Training Bundle can help you get there by prepping you for a number of top network and cloud certification exams. Read more...

  8. The dust has barely settled since Zeds Dead and Subtronics hit us with their much anticipated collaboration “Bumpy Teeth” — and they’re already onto the next one! In the tweets below, Breakout Artist of 2019 Subtronics reveals a new collaboration with Deadbeats legends Zeds Dead. Not only have they started the new collab, he promises it’s “sounding insane.” Last night, Subtronics packed out the Hollywood Palladium wall to wall and waited until the very last moment to finally unveil the collab that he says still needs some work, but it’s a monster already.

  9. Kayzo debuted a number of new collaborations at Lost Lands last year, with the likes of Sullivan King and Subtronics. There was also a third one with metal band Atreyu and it’s out now, called “Battle Drums.” The song is a fiery combination of bass music and metal, with guttural vocals and chugging guitar riffs paired with hellish bass notes and lots and lots of angst. The long bass notes in the drop are perfect for headbanging and so is the glorious breakdown. We’re going to see a lot more crossover between metal and dance music in 2020 and you can bet Kayzo will be one of those leading the charge. Check out “Battle Drums” below!

  11. The Story of Hardwell is about to unfold, as Revealed Recordings teases a new album packed with the superstar DJ/producer’s greatest hits. Hardwell classics “Spaceman,” “Apollo,” and “Zero 76” are confirmed for the forthcoming release. Plus, Hardwell and Dyro’s collaboration with Bright Lights, “Never Say Goodbye.” The rest of the tracklist remains undisclosed and it’s uncertain at this point if the compilation will include any new material — we can only hope. Hardwell took a huge step back from touring in 2018, but that has allowed him even more studio time. Years from now, we may be treated to another chapter of Hardwell’s story. “I want to come back stronger than ever,” he previously wrote in a statement, “but for now, I’m just going to be me for a while.” Check back here on January 31 to experience The Story of Hardwell thus far.

  12. The newest branch of the United States military, the U.S. Space Force, gave the internet a first look at its utility uniform on Friday. Joking ensued. Now the real purpose of the tweet was to highlight the embroidered nametape that identifies the new military branch in blue stitching. But the nametape in question is affixed to a standard uniform of the sort already in use among other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. The first #SpaceForce utility uniform nametapes have touched down in the Pentagon. @EsperDoD @SecAFOfficial @SpaceForceCSO @GenDaveGoldfein @[email protected] pic.twitter.com/Jvzt5bvNl7 — United States Space Force (@SpaceForceDoD) January 18, 2020 Read more...

  13. Hey everyone, welcome back to Week in Review where I dive deep into a bit of news from the week or just share some thoughts and go over some of the more interesting stories of the week. If you’re reading this on the TechCrunch site, you can get this in your inbox here, and follow my tweets here. The big story “Cord cutting” might still be a major trend for those walking away from cable subscriptions in favor of online streaming services, but the world of online subscription TV is nearly saturated and as 2020 prepares to inundate us with more services, it’s likely growing time for consumers to stop adding services and start prioritizing. NBCUniversal delivered some more details this week on its Peacock network and earlier this month we heard more about the mobile-only streaming network Quibi . These launches will come along in the spring, arriving just months after the high-profile launches on Apple TV+ and Disney+. Adding four high-spend streaming platforms in a short time frame could rattle the cages of consumers that have been bumbling along with only a couple streaming service subscriptions. NBCUniversal’s Peacock seems to walk the line between both worlds, leveraging Comcast subscribers without seeming to invest heavily in original content for the service. Their strategy is pinned on the attractiveness of their existing content library which they’re promoting heavily on both free and paid plans. There could be something here, it feels like a marked return to the early Hulu playbook, which could very well be played out. I still don’t know what to think of Quibi. They are dropping plenty of cash but spending your way into building a Gen Z network seems like a tall order. They’ve already nabbed a big partnership with T Mobile which seems promising when considering their broader industry adoption and yet it still seems like Snapchat Discover Prime. I’ll withhold judgment until launch but other mobile-first video networks have had less than stellar receptions. Side note: At this point in the streaming video product life cycle, I would imagine cracking down on password-sharing is going to start being a more attractive option for streaming service operators. We’ll see how this all shakes out, but it’s getting crowded. Trends of the week Here are a few big news items from big companies, with green links to all the sweet, sweet added context: Visa buys Plaid for $5.2 billion The biggest acquisition of the week was the very bold purchase of Plaid by Visa. Visa paid up double the banking API startup’s last private valuation. Read more here. Google acquires Pointy Google has announced a couple deals in the past few weeks. This week, we heard that they had acquired the Dublin startup Pointy, which builds hardware and software to help physical retailers track product inventory levels. Read more about it in our coverage. Alphabet is a $1 trillion company In the current age of big tech, there’s an elite club for public companies worth more than $1 trillion in market cap. This week, Alphabet joined its ranks. Read more here. Extra Crunch Our premium subscription business had another great week of content. My colleague Darrell Etherington talked a bit about the next frontier of early-stage space investments. Space Angels’ Chad Anderson on entering a new decade in the ‘entrepreneurial space age’ “Space as an investment target is trending upwards in the VC community, but specialist firm Space Angels has been focused on the sector longer than most. The network of angel investors just published its most recent quarterly overview of activity in the space startup industry, revealing that investors put nearly $6 billion in capital into space companies across 2019.…” Sign up for more newsletters, including my colleague Darrell Etherington’s new space-focused newsletter Max Q, here.

  14. A Facebook photo from the end of college could come back to haunt you. A New York Times deep-dive into a facial recognition AI tool sold to law enforcement agencies uncovered that the company has amassed more than three billion images. Those images are scraped from all corners of the internet from social media sites to companies' "About Us" pages. That's way more than the typical police or even FBI database. As the Saturday feature explained, Clearview AI, a small startup with initial funding from Facebook board member Peter Thiel, is bolstering its facial recognition database for police departments and others through Facebook, YouTube, Venmo, and more, despite prohibitions against this exact type of thing.

  15. They'll still be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but Harry and Meghan got what they wanted: They're free. Queen Elizabeth II delivered formal confirmation that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be permitted to follow through on their plans to step back from their roles as British royals. The Saturday statement asserts that the couple, along with their son Archie, will remain "much loved members of my family." View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on Jan 18, 2020 at 10:30am PST "I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life," the statement continues. It doesn't get into specifics beyond that, but the mention of "challenges" and "intense scrutiny" is likely a veiled reference to what some have described as the "structural racism" the royal couple has faced.
