Did Steve Angello Just Confirm Swedish House Mafia for Tomorrowland 2019?
A recent report from Dutch publication De Telegraaf has instilled hope for a Tomorrowland 2019 performance from Swedish House Mafia. According to Telegraaf, Steve Angello said that the group will perform at the festival next year “by any means necessary.”
Contrary to reports from other English-speaking publications, this is not a confirmation of a booking or performance at Tomorrowland next year. In Dutch, it translates more closely to “if it’s up to us.”
Rumors of a Swedish House Mafia performance next year were already jumpstarted this past weekend when Axwell joined Sebastian Ingrosso for his solo set at the Freedom stage and told the crowd, “This is the last time we see Tomorrowland for a while.”
The popular interpretation was that “we” referred to Axwell Λ Ingrosso and they’d return as Swedish House Mafia.
Axwell Λ Ingrosso have already one hundred percent confirmed that there will be a Swedish House Mafia show in New York in 2019, and Angello added fuel to the tour fire another time saying, “It’s happening, obviously.”
Whether their rumored comeback world tour routes through Tomorrowland is a question that still needs to be answered, but it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting that answer today.
REPORT: Skrillex x Rihanna Might Be Happening
Skrillex has been relatively quiet as of late. He operates similarly to his hip-hop, indie and other genre peers, taking breaks instead of constantly touring and releasing music. While we wait anxiously for new music, it appears Skrillex may pop up in an unexpected place: Rihanna‘s new album.
A Rolling Stone story covering the development of Rihanna’s upcoming album broke the news. In the story, an unnamed industry source says Skrillex has represened Rihanna at some recording sessions. The wording is a bit mysterious, but it suggests Skrillex may be deeply involved in the album’s production.
The story claims Rihanna’s next album will be a dancehall album, channeling back to her roots. Skrillex’s involvement would make sense; he’s worked with Damian Marley and Diplo (who is a member of the dancehall EDM group Major Lazer) in the past. He even gave Justin Bieber‘s “Sorry” a dancehall-flavored beat. Skrillex may not be the first name you think of when you consider dancehall, but his recent work shows he combines the genre with EDM pretty well.
The details for Rihanna’s next album are hidden behind layers of rumors, but we’re curious to see if Skrillex makes the final cut. We’re always waiting for that next Skrillex album as well.
LEAK: The New Google Pixel 3 Looks Absolutely Amazing
The iPhone may still dominate the cell phone market, but Google’s Pixel phone is catching up. The Pixel 3 is on the horizon, and the latest rumors hint at a truly awesome phone.
CNET broke down the latest round of Pixel 3 rumors. First, the Pixel 3 and the larger Pixel 3 XL are rumored to release this October, just a few months from now. Next, Google’s next Android operating system is rumored to heavily incorporate gesture navigation. Dubbed Android P, the new gesture features aren’t entirely known yet, but are expected to make a big impact on the new Pixel.
Unfortunately, the Pixel 3 is rumored to include a dreaded notch. Apple popularized the notch design with the iPhone X, and it looks like the new Pixel will follow in its footsteps. One great rumor: the Pixel may utilize wireless charging. Wireless charging has become more popular, so it’d make sense for the Pixel to incorporate it.
In terms of camera, the Pixel 3 XL is rumored to have two front-facing cameras. It’s also rumored to have an edge-to-edge display to give the phone a more expansive appearance. The leaked images so far also make it seem like it’ll be close in design to the Pixel 2. While one rumor hints at a premium Pixel 3 to accompany the other two, it seems like only the two Pixel 3 phones, new Pixel Buds headphones and a Pixel smartwatch will release. Finally, a cheaper version of the Pixel may be coming at some point in the future.
Whatever the case, it sounds like the Pixel 3 will be pretty awesome.
Did Sebastian Ingrosso Just Confirm Another Swedish House Mafia Show?
It seems impossible to escape the Swedish House Mafia rumor mill after their reunion at Ultra Music Festival earlier this year. Declarations of “Swedish House Mafia for life” fueled the first batch of rumors, suggesting more shows in the future; newer moves from Swedish House Mafia like deleting all their posts on Instagram have also raised some eyebrows.
Today, however, could be the most curious piece of all. Sebastian Ingrosso posted a photo on his Instagram story of what looks to be a lineup at a venue called Krusmynta Garden in Vispy, Sweden. The event is apparently in cooperation with 2 Fresh Entertainment, and features performances from Vargas & Lagola, Oskar Linnros, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Seinabo Sey, and Swedish House Mafia.
Now, the strange thing here is that there’s no significant Google search results for Krusmynta Garden except for some Trip Advisor blog entries. And as for 2 Fresh Entertaiment, nothing remotely having to do with dance music comes up – seriously, the top entry on Google is for, uh, this.
So what we have is a photo for a venue with no footprint, a promoter that doesn’t exist, and a lineup that isn’t found anywhere else… what’s going on here? We have no idea.
The only thing to do at this point is wait and see, but we wish they’d just come out and say something.

"Deadpool 2" Reshoots Reportedly Include More Cable And Domino
With the big budgets Hollywood success, there isn't much the studio can do if the film is poorly received. Sometimes, reshoots take place, but it's never a good sign for fans. After the huge hit Deadpool was, Fox couldn't mess up the sequel. However, when fans caught wind that Deadpool 2 is doing reshoots, they took the news for the worse.
Last week, Josh Brolin, who stars as Cable confirmed that the highly-anticipated sequel was doing reshoots in Vancouver. A report from Collider's Steven Weintraub says the reshoots aren't because the film performed poorly in test screenings; it's because it was so great. In January, they did the first test screening where it's scored, I heard, like a 90, 91. And then they did another screening based on editing the movie after getting notes back. The crowd sees it, right, the studio looks at, it they make changes" Weintraub revealed. "So the second screening happened and … I heard it scored much higher, a high 90, and then what happened was both crowds at these screenings said they love Josh Brolin as Cable, they loved Domino, but that they would like to see more both characters in the movie."
This news is said to come from multiple sources. If it's true, you can expect to see more Josh Brolin's Cable and Zazie Beetz's Domino. The reshoots should be quick, considering the movie will hit theaters shortly, on May 18th.
Spike Lee The Rumored Director For Marvel's "Nightwatch" Film
With the blockbuster spectaculars that superhero movies have become, they're only handing those out to the most interesting directors. A particular 90's Marvel character may be in the hands Spike Lee. It is rumored that the director will be in charge Nightwatch.
The news comes to us from The Hashtag Show. They previously broke superhero news when they shared that Kristen Wiig will play Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. As part their big announcement, the show also said that Cheo Hodari Coker, Luke Cage's showrunner, will write the script. Spike Lee was also believed to helm this project back in September when mentioned by the Meet the Movie Press podcast.
The titular character was introduced in 1993's Web Spider-Man #97. After a run-in with his future self, African-American doctor, Kevin Trench steals a high-tech suit and dons the guise Nightwatch. The character looks like your typical 90's superhero, equipped with a flowing cape, large gauntlets, and metal arms. Nightwatch will join the upcoming Venom film as the Marvel properties created by Sony Pictures. Since the possible news is out, we hope to hear an ficial confirmation from the studio, or Lee himself.
"Diablo 3" Reportedly In The Works For Nintendo Switch
It all started with a tweet from Blizzard Entertainment; a video game developer and publisher. Last week, they posted a video captioned "sweet dreams" depicting the demon from the "Diablo" games as a night light. The light is then switched f, leading fans to speculate a Diablo game is on its way to the Nintendo Switch gaming console. A Blizzard representative elaborated, "We can assure you we’re not that clever." However, that may not be the case.
Following up on the story, sources have mentioned to Eurogamer that there is, in fact, a Diablo game being readied for the Nintendo Switch. The game in question is a port Diablo 3, and an ficial announcement is months away. This would make it the first Nintendo game from Blizzard in 18 years. Since the company is remaining tight-lipped, we're still unsure whether this rumored game will also include the expansions "Reaper Souls" or "Rise the Necromancer."
Diablo 3 is a role-playing game originally released in Spring 2012 for PC. It later hit the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and in turn, the PS4 and Xbox One. Following this tradition, it looks likely that Blizzard will continue the game's legacy with a new system for a new audience.
