JAUZ Drops Final Single Ahead of Debut Album Release
There’s only one more week until Jauz’s debut album The Wise and The Wicked is available everywhere, but fans are getting one last treat before the release: “Super Fly” feat. 666. This is not only the final single before the album drops, but also the final track on the album, giving this a sort of appropriate symmetry.
After 22 other tracks, it’s incredible to think that the album will end on such a high-energy note. As a concept album, I’m not quite sure what to think of such an abrupt ending with no traditional “resolution,” but I’m sure it’ll all fit together once we’re able to hear the complete product.
The vocals come from 666’s 2001 hit “Supa-Dupa-Fly,” but of course the production is all Jauz and is far more culturally relevant now than the original’s super Euro rave-influenced style.
Check out “Super Fly” below and pre-save the album here.
JAUZ Reveals Massive 23-Song Tracklist & Details For Debut Album
The wait for Jauz’s debut album is nearly over, as The Wise and The Wicked is set to be released on August 31. And now, fans can witness the full tracklist and concept behind the album. To our surprise, it has been separated into chapters alternating between Wise and Wicked, and ultimately, United.
In Jauz’s own words, “When I’m writing music, half of my brain wants to write fun, crazy bangers for parties, clubs, fests, etc. This is represented by ‘The Wicked.’ The other half of the time I want to write emotional, intelligent, experimental music that feeds the ‘inner artist’ in myself, which is represented by ‘The Wise.’ The middle ground, which is where I strive to really be, is a blend of the melodic, emotional parts of my music paired with high energy drops and climaxes. This is represented by ‘The United.'”
Jauz has created an entire storyline to go along with the album as well, which is just as engrossing as it is original. Check out the tracklist (which includes newly revealed collaborations with Krewella, Ducky, HYPRESSION, and more) and story below, along with the five singles that have been released so far.
In this dystopia that Jauz has dreamt up – the wealth gap is about to reach its limit, which will leave only the ultra-rich minority, and the completely impoverished majority with no middle class whatsoever. From these two financial “castes,” two seperate alliances have formed, each hell-bent on using their own methods and techniques to inspire and empower the masses, and save the world in their own image.
The Wise inspire the masses by using intelligence and knowledge, and hope to find a cure for the ailing earth we live on with new groundbreaking technologies. They believe that only the truly adept should survive. On the other side, The Wicked believe in full anarchism, using anger and aggressiveness to grow their ranks, and will eventually let the modern world burn itself to the ground so it can be rebuilt in a more sustainable way.
But the plot thickens, The Wise celebrate music and creativity in ancient theaters, concert halls and in front of monuments. Their music aims to teach, and is more catered to the intelligent. While the music of the The Wicked is more primal, fueled by energy and anger. They share their sounds more publically, under bridges, in abandoned buildings, in the middle of the streets.
Their rivalry comes to an end, after chapters of the two castes opposing each other, a third party enters, The United, who are fueled by passion to create a better world. As outcasts of both parties, they have seen the errors both sides have made and also the strengths each side possesses. They have realized that this fight is not between two sides of humanity, but between all of humanity itself and everything that corrupted both sides into sinking our world deeper into darkness.

The Wise and The Wicked (NEW TRACKS)
Insomniac Took HARD Summer to the Next Level [Event Review]
If you live in Southern California and are a music fan of any kind, chances are you’ve been to a HARD Summer. Celebrating its 11th edition this year, HARD Summer is certainly one of the most venerated and revered festivals on the circuit. However, HARD has always had a fraught existence in its decade under founder Gary Richards AKA Destructo. While it is undoubtedly a great time, HARD has consistently faced logistical issues including having four different venues in four years since it departed L.A. State Historic Park after 2013.
Just prior to last year’s HARD Summer, Richards announced he was leaving Live Nation and the HARD brand, and there was definitely an air of finality hanging over last year’s festival. However, promptly after HARD Summer 2017, HARD 2018 was announced and here we are having wrapped up an incredible weekend. Enter industry heavyweight, Insomniac; with Richards out of the picture, HARD Summer is now officially an Insomniac festival. While this is not a new thing, this is the first year that Insomniac is not behind the scenes and is fully at the helm of the event. (Insomniac has owned the HARD brand since 2013.) Their fingerprints were all over the place, and in all the best ways.

The venue relocated back to Fontana Auto Club Speedway, where it was held in 2016. However, the layout was a little different this time around. HARD Stage was at west side of the speedway, while HARDer Stage was at the east end. Pink Tent occupied a spot at the north end of the lot, a little less than halfway from HARD to HARDer Stage. Purple and Green Tents each occupied spots on the south end of the grounds. There was a ferris wheel, as well as tons of food trucks and concession stands, and even a King Taco! Although the Speedway is huge and has a lot of ground to cover, the festival was easy to navigate. Insomniac also went big with shade and misters. Both HARD and HARDer stages had shaded viewing areas far away from the main crowd, but with sound that made you feel like you were right up front. There were also long stretches of tents with misters as well. Additionally, there was also a ton of astroturf, and most of the festival grounds were on dirt as opposed to asphalt. Insomniac definitely took steps to keep the crowd cooler and more comfortable.

The production and scale of the HARD and HARDer stages was absolutely massive this year. The sound was loud and crisp all over the festival grounds. The HARD stage was gigantic, and featured a basic, but clean and efficient design, that really allowed for the artist visuals to be prominent. There was also massive amounts of pyro this weekend, and, in typical Insomniac fashion, fireworks galore. Not to be outdone, the HARDer stage also featured a mind blowing design and production value. Although not quite as big as HARD stage, HARDer stage was also huge, and LED panels formed a zig zag pattern on both ends of the stage. The same pattern wound into the background of the stage to give it an even more 3D look than HARD stage. The lasers came to life for Virtual Self’s closing set on Sunday night.

The lineup was absolutely stacked and included some huge, exclusive back to back sets. With an eclectic mix of bass, house and hip-hop on the lineup, this was definitely a HARD bill for sure. I started off Saturday in the Green Tent for Sullivan King and his energetic set of pounding dubstep. Sullivan had the early crowd going hard as he shrieked and shredded on his live electric guitar. He also brought out Grabbitz for a new collab where they both rap! From there it was on to the HARD stage for Party Favor. The Mad Decent stalwart dropped an utterly danceable set with his trademark festival trap sound and tons of new IDs. He also showed off his new 90s themed visuals with references to Nickelodeon and Beavis & Butt-head among other things.
We caught some of Joyryde’s set, and it was his usual mix of bass house and hip-hop, it definitely kept the energy going. I stayed at HARD stage for Rick Ross’s performance, and the Maybach Music mogul delivered! He was on point, looked and sounded great whilst delivering crisp flows of all of his 2000s hits from “Aston Martin Music,” “All I Do Is Win,” “Ima Boss” and “Take it to the Head,” and of course, “Purple Lamborghini.” Rozzaaayyy!!!!!
From there I headed over to the Green Tent for Valentino Khan’s set. I was wearing a Lakers jersey that day and was approached by a girl who asked if I was going to Valentino’s set. I replied affirmatively and she informed me that Valentino had tweeted that he wanted everyone at his set to wear Lakers gear. The HARD crowd happily obliged on this one. This is totally an aside, but as a huge Lakers fan myself, it was so awesome to see so much purple and gold all across the festival this year. Valentino himself had a fresh black Lakers LeBron James jersey, and #23 was in full effect. The Lakers are back, baby!!

After that it was time for one of the premiere back to back sets of the weekend, Zeds Dead b2b Jauz. This one was not a new one, they’ve played a couple of festival dates together after their huge collab, “Lights Go Down.” It was a massive set, with nighttime in full effect, the full powers of the HARD stage were fully unleashed. Not only did crystal clear graphics sprawl across the stage, the pyro and fireworks started getting a workout too. The set was heavy and melodic, packed with both acts biggest hits including, “Rock the Party,” “Squad Out,” “Lights Go Down,” and “You Know.” After that I caught another insane back to back, Yellow Mustard (Yellow Claw and Mustard FKA DJ Mustard) at the HARDer stage. The Dutch trap duo and Los Angeles producer may seem like an unlikely duo, but ever since they collabed on “In My Room” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, they have been a match made in heaven. Their debut live set simply served to reiterate this as the trap music was unleashed during the first part of the set, and segued in Mustard’s hip-hop hits during the second part.
We returned (very) early for Day 2 and explored the festival grounds, went on the ferris wheel, and witnessed an enthralling set from Ducky in the Green Tent who provided a set with all new drops completely made from scratch. It feels like the festival finally got going for Day 2 once k?d took over the HARDer stage. He dropped a heavy-as-hell set and had the crowd bouncing out of control in the 5 o’clock sun. From there most people made their way over to HARD stage for San Holo. The Dutch phenom wowed the crowd with his live guitar playing and dropped a groovy, bouncy set of all of his hits and more including “Light” and “We Rise.” The HARD crowd was fully in the building at this point as a sea of people filled the Speedway infield.
After that it was what might have been the best set of the weekend, Diplo b2b Dillon Francis. Fully leaning into the Speedway motif (more on that later), Diplo and Dillon each showed up in matching racing suits, á la Talladega Nights, as well as featuring a racecar on stage too. The energy of the two DJ/producers was uncontainable as they floored the crowd with incredible dance hits from all genres as well as their own inimitable tracks such as “Say Less,” “Waist Time,” “Get Low,” “Watch Out for This,” “Light it Up,” “Bun Up the Dance,” and so much more.

We ended the night at Virtual Self, Porter Robinson’s highly praised and regarded side project. The live show did not disappoint, Porter dropped an array of tracks that certainly recalled a 2007-2009 era type of rave. The laser work was incredible, almost at an Eric Prydz level. And while we weren’t there to personally witness we, we assume a huge crowd had to have gathered at the HARD stage for Travis Scott‘s set, his first performance since releasing his highly anticipated album, Astroworld last week.

Unless you stayed until the very end on Sunday and endured the two-hour wait to leave the parking lot, HARD Summer 2018 was a resounding success. A packed crowd eagerly and enthusiastically filled the Fontana Auto Club Speedway. Insomniac definitely leaned into the Speedway motif so I would not be surprised to see them make this HARD’s permanent home going forward. Whereas last year there was an air of uncertainty surrounding HARD, this year feels like HARD isn’t going anywhere and will be back next year just as big. On a final note, HARD-father Gary Richards’ made his presence felt this weekend too. A plane flying a banner advertising his new AMF Festival made constant laps around the Speedway over the weekend. He reminded those looking up that the HARD Father loves you. Gone but not forgotten. See you at the next HARD Summer!
JAUZ Finally Reveals Album Title & Release Date
In just a month, we’ll finally be able to hear what Jauz has been working on, as his debut full-length album The Wise and The Wicked officially has its release date set for August 31, 2018.
Not only that, fans can expect the last single from the album, “Super Fly,” coming out soon. He has already released collabs with Example, DJ Snake, Snails, and LAZER LAZER LAZER, and Kiiara. The album is shaping up to be one of the best of 2018 already.
At the turn of the new year, Jauz dished on his new perspective and new music. “My resolution for 2018 is all about giving you guys the most raw, honest, real version of Jauz and myself that there is. No more cheesy social media posts, TONS of music, coming out as fast as I can make it, and sets that will help introduce new, fresh, weird music to people who might not hear it otherwise.”
“And to start it off right, there’s an album coming,” he confirmed. “Early 2018.”
The album might be a little overdue in terms of this proclamation, but we already know it will be well worth the wait. According to Jauz, the collection will consist of some of his most favorite music he’s ever written.
We can’t wait to hear The Wise and The Wicked in full! What’s your favorite track so far?

Zeds Dead & Jauz Serve Up Phenomenal "Lights Go Down" Remix Pack [MUST LISTEN]
We’re not quite sure what Zeds Dead and Jauz are trying to do to us, but as if their power-charged DnB track “Lights Go Down” wasn’t enough to satisfy — they’ve unleashed nine new remixes to match that same level of insanity.
Sikdope kicks things off right with one of the strongest remixes of the entire pack, blending punchy bass house and DnB-inspired drums. Then, Duke & Jones slow it down and serve up the must unexpected change up, proving less is sometimes more. And we’re off to a great start.
Relentless, bass heavy remixes from Gentlemans Club and Jarvis definitely shake things up when you play this EP through. And LICK impresses with his unforgiving downtempo style as another standout track.
There’s still plenty more to go, as Subtronics, Sqwad, Awoltalk, and Spirix all take “Lights Go Down” for a spin. We say this a lot with remix packs, but there really is something for everyone here.
With all these amazing remixes in one spot, there’s really only one thing left to say — When the lights go down in the city, are you coming my way?
