Experiencing childhood in Santa Clause Ana, LA, exemplary shake is the thing that Carisma (otherwise known as Cathleen Robertson) heard at home, yet hip bounce is the thing that she searched out on the radio. As a child, recording and cutting her own particular mixtapes was Carisma’s beginning stage into what might end up noticeably a standout amongst the best female vocations in standard radio, and apparently hip bounce full quit, having now created tracks for any semblance of Tinashe, Chris Dark colored, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign. HustleTV

“I grew up listening to TLC and am a huge fan. I’ve been wanting to flip the Creep sample and put out a fresh male perspective on it,” explains Trakksounds. “So I linked up with my co-producers Roc N Mayne in LA and we just vibed out on it in the lab. I needed it to be the same soulful feel so I presented it to Devin who I knew would deliver the hook perfectly. And of course Neko’s wicked pen never disappoints and Kirko sealed it up with his swag.”

11:15” follows lead single “Once Upon A Time” which paired a long-awaited collaboration with Scarface and Starlito.

TRAKKSOUNDS’ THE OTHER SIDE LP AVAILABLE TODAY

By | Album, Featured, Music, News | No Comments
TrakkSounds crafts a smooth beat for the three MCs,
who each shine with their respective contributions.
Ferg’s verse and Maxo’s hook are very entertaining, but
Killa Kyleon’s bars are the highlight of the record.”
XXL Magazine
HustleTV Music News…  Award-winning producer TrakkSounds & Houston rapper Killa Kyleon partner with XXL Magazine to premiere their new collaborative track “Never Tipsy” featuring A$AP Ferg and Maxo Kream. The smoking jam pays tribute to the legendary Pimp C and shines a light on H-town hip-hop.  The potent track will be included in TrakkSounds’ brand new album The Other Side releasing today, April 25th via Pairadime Music Group.
Trakksounds says, “It was a no brainer to collaborate with Killa, Ferg, and Maxo, who all keep it trill. Everyone on this song has a different sound but we were all inspired by legendary Houston artists Pimp C and DJ Screw. They put H-town hip-hop in the spotlight and while we pay mad respect to them, we’ve also made it our own.”


“This is the Other Side of music that may not be heard on the radio every day,” explains TrakkSounds.  “Mike Dean, Pimp C, and Scarface were all heavy influencers on my sound as a producer. A lot of people don’t realize Pimp C and Scarface were actually producers on a lot of their own songs. I am excited to show everyone the different sides of music I get to work on and how talented the artists are that I’ve had the pleasure to work with.”

TrakkSounds has recruited an array of top talent for his 15-track project, The Other Side, including: Scarface, Kevin Gates, Devin The Dude, A$AP Ferg and more. Lead single “Once Upon A Time” featuring Scarface and Starlito premiered with XXL who praised the track’s dark piano laden production as “fantastic.” The follow-up TLC-inspired “11:15” featuring Devin The Dude and Kirko Bangz was named “Best Of The Week” on Houston tastemaker blog Day & A Dream. Also, TrakkSounds made “Can’t Explain It” a DXclusive on HipHopDX while enlisting Scotty ATL, Rizzoo Rizzoo and Oran Juice Jones II. HustleTV

iHeartMedia Investors Attempt to Restructure $19B Debt, Dangle Chapter 11

By | Music, News | No Comments

iHeart Media owners Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Parters, are trying to pull off a  high wire act to balance its massive $19 billion debt load.

iHeartRadio www.HustleTV.tv DJ Hustle HustleTV

iHeartRadio www.HustleTV.tv DJ Hustle HustleTV

Its trying to restructure some $14 billion of that debt by getting itself more time to pay it off while also getting a reduction it what it owes. It has offered to replace loans and bonds with new facilities and replace old bonds with new discounted notes that mature at a later date, in exchange for also receiving stock shares in its separately publicly traded Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings. Depending on the participation, bond holders would receive their pro-rata share of a pool of about 39% of CCOH’s stock. As of April 20, CCOH had a market capitalization of about $2.05 billion. according to Yahoo finance. HustleTV

But so far, bond holders have twice turned up their nose at their deal—even with two extensions.So last week the offer was sweetened and the deadline extended for a third time to April 21 (today), only to be once again rebuffed by bond holders.

         

iHeartMedia, With $20 Billion in Debt, Looks to Restructure a Portion While Holding Off Creditors

So today, they extended another week and instead of the carrot sweetener, iHeart offered the stick, releasing preliminary financial information and saying it may have an insolvency issue sometime later this year if the bond holders don’t take their current deal now. In other words, its playing chicken with its bond holders, saying take what it’s offering now or there might be a Chapter 11 filing, which likely could result in a much lower payout.

iHeart first made its offer for a deal on March 15, and gave bond holders until April 5 to tender their notes. So last week, they sweetened the offer and extended the deadline to April 21 (today), only to be once again rebuffed by bond holders. So today, they extended another week and instead of the carrot, the company offered the stick, releasing preliminary financial information and saying it may have an insolvency issue sometime later this year, if the bond holders don’t take their current deal now. In other words, it’s playing chicken with its bond holders, saying take what its offering now; or there might be a Chapter 11 filing, which likely could result in a much lower payout. HustleTV

So, what kind of a deal is iHeart offering lenders? The details of the term loan tradeoff are not provided, but it’s asking bond holders in a series of notes due on different maturity dates and each paying different interest payments, totaling about $8 billion, to exchange their notes for new ones that mature, in general, two years later, and generally paying two percentage points in lower interest rates than the existing notes, while also forgiving some of the debt.

iHeart offered a three-tiered swap, depending on a low participation scenario, mid-level participation scenario and high participation scenario, with the low participation rate issuing new bonds that would be discounted 12% and pay 88 cents on the dollar; while mid-level participation would result in a 17% discounting paying 83 cents on the dollar; and high participating would gain the company a 25% discount, paying 75 cents on the dollar.

But when none were submitted, it extended the offer to April 14, and then extended it again to April 21. Along the way, its offer was sweetened to the point where it promised to pay 90 cents on the dollar for both low and mid-level participation. Again, bond holders turned their nose up at the offer, collectively offering to tender only some $3 million in notes.

Today, the company extended the offer yet again to April 28. But instead of offering another sweeter, Bain and Tommy Lee switched from the carrot and brought out the stick, reminding debt holders that in its 10-K annual report filing to the SEC, that it may have a “going concern” issue during 2017.

Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO for iHeartMedia, Inc. speakes during iHeartMedia Presents Seal At The 2015 ANA Masters of Marketing Annual Conference at Orlando World Center Marriott on Oct. 15, 2015 in Orlando, Fla. 

iHeartMedia Chooses to Pay Its Lenders Over Itself as Debt Continues to Drag on Bottom Line

The 10-K noted that the company’s “forecast of future cash flows indicates that…(it) would not be sufficient for us to meet our obligations, including payment of the outstanding receivables based credit facility balance at maturity, as they become due in the ordinary course of business.

While its fiscal first quarter ended March 31, it doesn’t have to make its 10-Q filing until 40 days after the quarter close, or about May 10. But that’s beyond the April 28 deadline, so the company has released preliminary first quarter results, which once again bring up the “going concern” issue.
With negative cash flows projected for 2017, due to the maturities of a $305 million receivables-based credit facility, and $112 million in notes due to be redeemed on jan. 15, 2018, management says that its upcoming 10-Q disclosures indicate “substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern” for the 12 month following the close of its first quarter.

Its annual interest expense has risen from about  $1.55 billion in 2012 to $1.85 billion last year. Last year the company had about $2.14 billion in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. If its interest expense remains the same, with the $417 million in debt coming due, its total debt expense would total about $2.27 billion, which would swamp EBITDA. HustleTV

So far this year, the company’s preliminary first quarter numbers shows it will have about $114.06 million in operating profit on $1.33 billion in revenues, down considerably from the $420.7 million in operating profit, on $1.36 billion in revenues in posted in the year earlier quarter. So already, the company is not off to a good start of matching last year’s EBITDA total.

Bain and Tommy Lee, in effect, are telling bondholders that they should take the offer on the table, which may result in a haircut of either gettin 90 cents or 75 cents on the dollar and lower interest payments; or run the risk that the company may have to file for Chapter 11 sometime in the next year. If that happens, a lot of uncertainty comes into the process.

More than likely, the equity players, Bain and Lee get wiped out in a Chapter 11 filing, but there’s no guarantee that a restructuring or a liquidation would achieve a 75 cents on the dollar payout to all debtors. It could be substantially lower, and maybe only the guaranteed lenders get a payout with the subordinated lenders also possibly looking at a wipeout. In other words, there are a lot of possible scenarios if the company has to go down that road.

But all of that uncertainty might be staved off, if the bond holders and the term loan providers take the offer now on the table, which is the heart of the message from the equity players to the debt holders. HustleTV

Jay Z, Live Nation Enter Into New Long Term Deal, Continue Roc Nation Partnership

By | Music, News | No Comments

In 2008, Jay Z and Live Nation entered into a $150 million, 10-year 360 deal to cover his next three albums, publishing and other assets and the formation of Roc Nation as a joint venture between Jay and Live Nation. With the terms of that deal now nearing completion, a spokesperson for Live Nation today tells Billboard that the promoter has a new deal with Jay in place, and will remain equity partners with Roc Nation. HustleTV

Jay Z www.HustleTV.tv DJ Hustle

Jay Z www.HustleTV.tv DJ Hustle

“Live Nation has a new long term deal with Jay Z and we expect to continue being equity partners in Roc Nation for many years to come in a statement.

While terms of the new deal were not disclosed, the new agreement does not appear to be an extension of the current 360 arrangement, and instead mostly covers his touring business. HustleTV

Jay Z and Live Nation will continue to operate Roc Nation’s management and recorded music business as a joint venture. Live Nation has let many of its 360 recorded-music deals sunset and has largely gotten out of the recorded music business, although through its various joint ventures it does retain some label holdings

Earlier today, Page Six reported on speculation that Jay Z would be shopping Live Nation’s stake in Roc Nation to Universal Music Group, Roc’s distributor and the longtime home of Def Jam — which Jay Z ran as president and CEO of the label from 2004 through the end of 2007 — and his original imprint Roc-A-Fella Records. But another source told Billboard that any speculation that UMG would buy in to Roc Nation was unfounded.

The paper also reported that the end of the original deal would trigger a buy-sell clause, where either Jay or Live Nation would be able to sell their stake in the company or buy the other out; that is also not the case, sources say, and Live Nation’s confirmation of a long-term deal seemingly puts that speculation to bed. HustleTV

That is exactly what is happening with the “new man on the streets” simply known as “DJ Hustle .”

Starting off as a DJ performing at major venues across the country, DJ Hustle decided to branch out and formed “HustleTV” in 2008 with the show being aired via the Time Warner Cable system.

Within a one year time period, “Hustle TV” had caught on with the Hip Hop audience nationwide, while DJ Hustle’s rapport with the various Rap music stars and sports figures enabled him to secure the “street level, uncut interviews” the artist themselves preferred and that the viewers so desperately wanted to see. DJ Hustle

J Balvin and Nicky Jam on Conquering the Globe In the Trump Era

By | Life Style, Music, News | No Comments

About 10 years ago, J Balvin  was a hot young star in his native Colombia on his way to headline a concert in the remote state of Chocó. Nicky Jam was his older opening act, a once-promising Puerto Rican reggaetón artist intent on reviving his career in another country after struggling with drugs and alcohol. When they met on the chartered private jet taking them to their gig, Balvin was starstruck. “He really had been one of the inspirations in my career,” says Balvin, now 31. Recalls Nicky Jam, 36: “He told me he was my fan, that he was where he was thanks to my music and Daddy Yankee’s.” HustleTV

Balvin wears a Haider Ackermann shirt, AMIRI jacket and David Yurman rings.

Today, Balvin (born José Álvaro Osorio) and Nicky Jam (Nick Rivera Caminero) are not only peers, they’re leaders of reggaetón’s new generation. Together, they’ve taken an underground Puerto Rican genre once dismissed as a fad and helped transform it into the soundtrack of a globalized Latin music revolution. In the past three years, they have each logged eight top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, more than any other artist in that period, and both placed two videos among the 100 most-viewed of all time on YouTube. Meanwhile, their Instagram followings have both shot past 15 million. Nicky Jam notched his first-ever No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart in January and wrapped up his first European arena tour in April. Balvin has already earned five new Hot Latin Songs hits this year (for a career total of 15), and his albumEnergía is in its 41st week in the top five of the Latin Rhythm Albums chart. DJ Hustle

Seldom have two artists who sing in Spanish simultaneously impacted the mainstream so forcefully with the same musical style. For the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards, Nicky Jam leads the field with nine nominations. Balvin has seven. They’re competing against each other in the artist of the year category, which encompasses their success on radio, in sales and, perhaps most importantly, streams, which more than anything demonstrate their global reach. (The-artists also will sit for an interview together on April 25 at the Billboard Latin Music Conference.)

In today’s multihyphenate world of celebrity, the two have naturally cultivated strong side hustles as well. Nicky Jam hosted Lip Sync Mexico, the Mexican TV adaptation of Lip Sync Battle, and his friend Vin Diesel recommended him for a role in 2017’s international box-office smash xXx: Return of Xander Cage. “Nicky Jam is such a great talent on so many levels,” says Diesel. “He not only is a natural in front of the camera, he has great comedic timing.” DJ Hustle

Balvin, meanwhile, has broken into the fashion world, landing a coveted invite to the Chanel fashion show last December in Paris; becoming, in January, the first Latino named as ambassador of New York Fashion Week; and appearing in Ovadia & Sons’ Spring 2017 campaign. “Balvin’s ability to mix an authentic streetwear sensibility with classic luxury makes him perfect for the current fashion climate,” says AMIRI founder/creative director Mike Amiri.

Despite their personal differences — Balvin is a commitment-averse fashionista, Nicky Jam is a recovering addict and born-again Christian who recently married — the two are close friends. Balvin cut his New York Fashion Week activities short to attend Nicky Jam’s March wedding in Medellín. When they hang out, which is as often as their schedules permit, it’s for a PG-rated boys’ night out for pizza and a movie, most often in Medellín, where both have homes. HustleTV

“[Balvin] saw me when I was in the dumps, going home from gigs in a rundown taxi in Medellín,” says Nicky Jam, recalling the days when he was first rebuilding his career. “That same guy stood next to me at the Latin Grammys last year. It takes a real man to get to where he’s at and remain humble.” Together, says Balvin, the two have “been able to prove to the world that our music can really be mainstream, even in the U.S., where Latin acts can still be marginalized.” (This interview is translated from Spanish.) HustleTV

Kendrick Lamar DAMN Heading for Third No. 1 Album

By | Music, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News …. Kendrick Lamar is on course to earn his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart next week with DAMN. The new set, which was released on April 14 through Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope Records, could earn around 475,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 20, according to industry forecasters. HustleTV

If DAMN. starts as expected, it will earn the second-largest week for an album of 2017, behind only the debut of Drake’s More Life, which launched with 505,000 units on the April 8-dated ranking, according to Nielsen Music.

Lamar previously led the Billboard 200 with his last two albums: last year’s Untitled Unmastered. (178,000 units in its first week, 142,000 of which were in album sales) and 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly (363,000 units; 324,000 in album sales). HustleTV 

Kendrick Lamar had quite the busy weekend. After dropping his latest studio album DAMN. and tearing up the Coachella stage as a headliner on Sunday night, the Compton rapper returns with a new video for “DNA.” starring esteemed actor Don Cheadle.

“Kendrick Lamar. Two first names, huh, the f— is up with that?,” asks Cheadle, who plays an interrogator. “You know what DNA stands for? Dead N—a Association.” HustleTV 

As soon as Cheadle’s character tries to switch on the lie detector test, he immediately spazzes and channels Lamar spitting all the hard-hitting bars from the DAMN. cut. The two then engage in a back-and-forth rap fest before Cheadle un-cuffs him from the table. “Another dead n—a association,” says Lamar, who pats Cheadle and prompts him to pass out on the ground.

Future Zips Through His Hits, Shares Spotlight with Migos & Drake at Coachella 2017

By | Music, News | No Comments

Coachella 2017: HustleTV 

HustleTV  Music News  Future:  As the sun set on the Indio Valley for Day 2 of the Coachella Music Festival on Saturday (April 15), Future came alive in the nighttime.

Rap’s melody connoisseur and drug-laden wordsmith came fully prepared for his Coachella debut, keeping the energy a 100 emoji while showing the breadth of his catalog. Alongside Ty Dolla $ign , the Atlanta MC launched his set at 7:31 p.m. PT with “Blasé” before hitting his turn-up anthems “New Level” (the A$AP Ferg-hosted cut), “Same Damn Time” and “Sh-t.”

The three-screen Jumbotron featured an assortment of visuals which included scantily clad women shaking their bottoms, distorted images of Future and a Sprite bottle or the Freebandz crew as well as vicious dog bites. While his frequent tour mate DJ Esco tried to pit a battle of the littest between both sides of the audience, the real winner was any member of the Future Hive.

Future HustleTv.tv DJ Hustle Coachella

Future HustleTv.tv DJ Hustle Coachella

Future’s performance was equal parts screwed-face soundtrack (“Stick Talk,” “I Thought It Was a Drought” and “Where Ya At”) and sing along (“Fresh Air” and “Incredible”). After cementing his own piece of history with back-to-back Billboard 200 No. 1 albums Future and HNDRXX earlier this year, the rapper knows how to cater to different tastes and demographics in his fan base without alienating his creative process. HustleTV 

Luckily for Coachella-goers, he’s also not selfish with the output. Migos invaded the Coachella stage for performances of Culture cuts “T-Shirt” and “Bad and Boujee.” To preface Drake’s cameo, Future told the crowd, “We gotta turn this shit all the way up. I want everybody jumpin’ — that’s my goal tonight.” The 6 God then took over for abbreviated renditions of “Jumpman” and “Gyalchester.” The More Life MC also made a special request before exiting: “Can we just have a real Coachella moment and sing one song together?” He then conducted a chorus class-style performance of “Fake Love.”

​There were tender moments in the set, like Future performing the vulnerable number “My Collection” and The Weeknd-assisted “Coming Out Strong.” His parting gift, though, was the hit that launched a thousand challenge videos, “Mask Off,” which boasts the street commandments “Chase a check/ Never chase a b-tch.” Though unfiltered and direct in delivery, his latest releases show that Future continues to even outdo himself.  HustleTV

Coachella 2017: The XX Illuminates, Radiohead Blames the ‘F–kin’ Aliens’ for Sound Issues

Coachella 2017:  DJ Hustle

HustleTV Music News … The conversations leading up to Coachella Weekend 1 usually begin with a guessing game: Who’s bringing out who? Who’s performing what? Who will exceed expectations? For this year’s festival in Indio, California, kickoff day (Friday, April 14) came with two surprise guests, unsuspecting show-stealers and technical difficulties for the night’s biggest act. Run through the Day 1 notes from on-the-ground staffers below.

3:05 p.m. The Lemon Twigs welcome Todd Rundgren on stage for “Couldn’t I Just Tell You,” marking one of the first guest spots of this year’s festival (Zipper Club, who had Curt Smith join them for “Mad World” went on an hour earlier). The artists share a clear power-pop kinship, and the through line shown through as frontman Brian D’Addario glowed every time he looked at Rundgren.

4:20 p.m. Eyes closed, Sampha emerged in a haze of stage fog combined with marijuana and cigarette smoke (appropriate given the time). “Plastic 100°C” and “Timmy’s Prayer,” off the British crooner’s impressive debut Process, kicked off the alt-R&B happy hour at the Mojave stage. Decked in a green bomber that read “Peacemaker,” Sampha chose an appropriate ‘fit as his 45-minute set became instant bonding grounds for afternoon Coachella-goers on Day 1 (one man seated on the ground sprayed water fans on sweating passersby while a woman complimented her neighbor’s outfit). By the third song, the jacket came off to reveal the introverted singer in a white tee and sometimes flexing his dance moves and entrancing sorcery on the piano. Sampha even treated the crowd with his steamy interlude on Drake’s More Life titled “4422.” HustleTV 

4:45 p.m. Big Gigantic‘s saxophonist Dominic Lalli’s announcement that the group would be debuting a new song “Friends” featuring singer Ash is met with a swell of cheers. “Thanks for the best afternoons we’ve had in our lives” he hollers while beaming. “You couldn’t slap the smile off his face,” an attendee says.— 

5:17 p.m. Who knew a flute could get people dancing?Bonobos created all sorts of vibes with several instruments (trombone, trumpets, keyboard) during their Coachella stage set, even getting people just walking by to bust a move. — Taylor Weatherby

5:27 p.m.. “Don’t y’all understand I wanna bring what’s real?” Raurydelivered equally chill and mellow vibes as Sampha — but with more body language and uplifting stage commentary. In his fringe-y white ensemble, the motivating singer/songwriter/musician offered the crowd an escape. “We don’t get to lose our minds that often,” he said before dropping a beat, prompting everyone to scream. He also debuted a new track titled “In The Night.” At the end of his set, he laid down on the stage, morphed into an impromptu life coach and said, “Sometimes I just wanna stay here on the ground, feeling sorry for myself but we can’t do that, Coachella.” He stood up. “We gotta stand up on our own two feet and face the world.”

5:57 p.m. “Shit, this is a big stage. My legs are so short, I don’t think you understand how long it takes to run from one end to the other,”Broods’ vocalist Georgia Natt told the crowd after starting off by commenting on how hot it was on the festival grounds. When it came to her performance, though, Natt’s vocals and energetic antics completely concealed that she may have been struggling with the stage size or the heat. After performing one of the group’s biggest songs, “Free,” a fan gushed, “She is a boss, she’s a f–king boss.” In fact, she’s such a boss, she inspired Scandal’s boss, actor Tony Goldwyn (President Fitzgerald Grant, a.k.a. Fitz) to check out her set from the V.I.P. section.

6:06 p.m. Francis and the Lights’ Francis Farewell Starlite emerged onstage in a red jacket, dancing to the Throne version of Drake’s “Pop Style” to open the show and rapped along to Kanye West’s verse. Some stand outs from his set were “See Her Out” and “I Want You To Shake.”

6:21 p.m. “Can’t have Coachella without me coming to say hello,” the Glass Animals’ lead singer tells the Coachella stage audience as he rides a security guard’s shoulders into the crowd — while wearing a walking boot — before starting a dynamic rendition of the indie rock band’s biggest hit, “Gooey.”

6:30 p.m. Crystal Castles‘ new vocalist Edith Frances screams through a face full of electric green hair that matches the hue of the LEDs behind her while the drummer’s maelstrom churns behind her. — Matt Medved​

6:54 p.m. “We can’t believe we’re playing with the sunset. California is the best place on earth,” Oh Wonder‘s Anthony West said as the daylight faded about 15 minutes into the British duo’s set. Amidst a set list featuring awe-inspiring renditions of “Drive” and “Body Gold,” West’s counterpart Josephine Vander Guchthis added, “This is our first time at Coachella and bloody hell does it exceed our expectations — there’s a lot more palm trees than I imagined!”

8:12 p.m. While folk-rocker Father John Misty is sort of a prodigal son of Coachella at this point, it’s too bad his graduation set on the main stage was witnessed by so few — perhaps it was the traffic from LA or maybe it was his scheduling against Phantogram, who ended up drawing one of the bigger crowds of the day. Even so, he confidently preened through his entire 55-minute set to let the crowd know that he was going to put on one heck of a show no matter who was there, creating an almost religious experience for his set-concluding “Honeybear” by dropping to his knees. HustleTV 

9:02 p.m. “Chella, how you doing? We’ve missed you. We do not have the words to say how happy we are to be here,” Oliver Sim of The XX first addresses the crowd after a few songs. During the hour-long set, the English band kept mostly to the tunes, adding simple, yet sincere commentary like Romy Croft’s admitting that she was “a bit nervous.” Yet, one of the most stand-out parts of their show was when Croft took the mic for a solo performance of, fittingly, “Performance.” — Taylor Weatherby

7:13 p.m. Banks hit the Gobi stage and a roar crescendoed. Her sexy set, complete with modern dancers and a sparkly red number, marked a comeback of sorts to Chella. “This is such a crazy feeling. Coachella was the first festival I ever did three years ago and I’m back. if you know this song, sing with me,” she teased before performing crowd-pleaser “Trainwreck.”

7:47 p.m. Over at the Sahara stage, Mac Miller set the evening party off right by performing the Miguel-assisted “Weekend” and several other crowd pleasers. HustleTV 

8:11 p.m. Richie Hawtin kicks off his CLOSE live concept straddling the gap between flickering Ava LIV synth behind a minimal pulsing strobe light. Cheers erupt as the constant backbeat evolves to incorporate hi hats and snares in syncopated patterns over foreboding synthscapes. Hawtin’s visuals contort video feeds of his own onstage controller setup, which includes two Allen & Heath Xone K2s and a step-sequenced Ableton Push, into overlapping red and white illuminated outlines, deconstructing into firework fizzles,  strobe flashes and swirling geometric after images above his pounding techno backbeat.

9:39 p.m. Blending mixtape cuts (“Skyfall” and “Upper Echelon”) with Hot 100 party-starters (“Pick Up The Phone” and “Antidote”) and a slew of Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight entries (“the ends,” “way back” and the finale “goosebumps”), Travis Scott’s eclectic set list turned Indio into the rodeo. Trippy jumbo-screen projections, a bird stage prop and incessant, Auto-Tuned screaming made La Flame’s energy all the more fiery. “I wanna see the f–king rage, Coachella,” he said. “I came for the rage, Coachella. If you not tryna mosh pit, if you not tryna lay on the ground, get the f–k out.” ​

10:23 p.m. The Sahara tent presents quite the traffic jam for those who are hoping to see Empire of the Sun. Fans who were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the stage amongst the chaos witnessed quite the show, as the Australian electronic duo had almost like tribal dancers throughout the whole show. But even audience members who may have been a little peeved by being so far back couldn’t refrain from fangirling (and going absolutely crazy) over the band’s megahit, “Walking on a Dream.”

11:04 p.m. Headliner Radiohead experiences some serious sound issues, first cutting out completely and then loud explosions of random speaker sounds, to which Thom Yorke quipped “F–ckin aliens again.” Those “aliens” decided to stick around for the whole show, as the technical difficulties occurred a few more times. The band played through the trouble, though, and when there was silence, fans filled the awkwardness with encouraging cheers — that is, other than a group who couldn’t help joking, “Unmute! Unmute!”).

11:40 p.m. You’d think the party would be winding down, but that is not the case at the Sahara tent, where Dillon Francis just begins his DJ set to an insanely huge crowd that finds men dancing in trees and loud screams every time the beat drops. About halfway through his set, Francis played a mash-up of Calvin Harris’ “Slide” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” intro-ing with, “This song goes out to Beyonce since she couldn’t be here.” G-Eazy makes for one of the only surprise appearances of the Day 1 festivities, joining Francis for their new collaboration, “Say Less.”

12:56 a.m. D.R.A.M. performed the Day 1 finale “Broccoli” by initially singing it in ballad form before launching into the original (unfortunately sans a Lil Yachty cameo). Before he exited the Mojave stage, he called out the momma’s boys and girls in the crowd. “If you love your momma,” he said, “say yeahhhh!” — Taylor Weatherby HustleTV

While fans have been patiently anticipating the  One Direction star’s solo project, the reveal of the cover art has put everyone back on edge with excitement. Most fans showed their love and support for the 1D member by posting how proud and ready they were for the May 12 release date.

The track listing for the album:

“Meet Me in the Hallway”

“Sign of the Times”

“Carolina”

“Two Ghosts”

“Sweet Creature”

“Only Angel”

“Kiwi”

“Ever Since New York”

“Woman”

“From the Dining Table”

There’s a bench at the top of Primrose Hill, in London, that looks out over the skyline of the city. If you’d passed by it one winter night, you might have seen him sitting there. A lanky guy in a wool hat, overcoat and jogging pants, hands thrust deep into his pockets. Harry Styles had a lot on his mind. He had spent five years as the buoyant fan favorite in One Direction; now, an uncertain future stretched out in front of him. The band had announced an indefinite hiatus. The white noise of adulation was gone, replaced by the hushed sound of the city below.

The fame visited upon Harry Styles in his years with One D was a special kind of mania. With a self-effacing smile, a hint of darkness and the hair invariably described as “tousled,” he became a canvas onto which millions of fans pitched their hopes and dreams. Hell, when he pulled over to the side of the 101 freeway in L.A. and discreetly threw up, the spot became a fan shrine. It’s said the puke was even sold on eBay like pieces of the Berlin Wall. Paul McCartney has interviewed him. Then there was the unauthorized fan-fiction series featuring a punky, sexed-up version of “Harry Styles.” A billion readers followed his virtual exploits. (“Didn’t read it,” comments the nonfiction Styles, “but I hope he gets more than me.”)
