A New Song Featuring All Time Low Is Coming Tonight
At Coachella this evening, DJ Kayzo is set to unveil his new single Up In Flames – and he has revealed that the track features our favourite Baltimore pop-punks.
“We have a lot of special guests and cool things coming out,” he told Coachella Valley Weekly of his planned set. “I’m about to put out my next single from my next album with a band called All Time Low and the song is called Up In Flames. It’s something we’re going to be debuting in a new way at Coachella and we’re definitely excited about that release post-Coachella.”
He also added of how he combines his DJ work and the rock world: “The curation and vision I’ve had these past years of rock music and these bands like this tour I’m doing now combining my favourite electronic artists that I work with and some of my favourite bands and we’re doing a line-up that’s not just straight DJ. We get a combination of rock and electronic mixed and then go into a DJ and then back to a band and then when we finally get to my set.”
This all ties in very nicely with Alex’s recent work with Simple Creatures. The duo – completed by blink-182’s Mark Hoppus – recently wrapped up their first-ever tour, with the All Time Low vocalist/guitarist explaining that their gigs would feel like “somewhere between a rock show and an EDM hip-hop show”.
“It’s pretty crazy,” he says. “There’s a lot of moving parts, and we’ve been figuring out how to do it live. It’s just the two of us and we don’t have a live band – we don’t have a drummer. It’s sort of landing somewhere between a rock show and an EDM hip-hop show! And I think that’s what’s really interesting about this project: we knew that, to do this right, it was going to have to be some sort of strange hybrid of genres. And, even down to the live element of it, it is truly that. We’re running a lot of stuff off these insane sample pads, and I’m playing more instruments than I know what to do with so far! That’s a very interesting element of the show. At any given moment, we’re both on keys, I’m on bass, Mark’s on guitar and then we’re swapping guitars, and then I’ll be playing the sample pads, and we’re looping a beat and playing on top of that… it’s pretty crazy. There’s a lot of interactivity in the show for us, but, at the same time, it still really feels like this energetic rock show.”
