Burning Man 2017 saw one of the most devastating music festival tragedies we’ve ever heard of…
It’s been five months since Aaron Joel Mitchell ran into the blazing fire and ended his own life during one of Burning Man’s rituals. Still, more questions than answers remain. An update from the Reno Gazette Journal, a local publication, reports his friends and family still have no idea why.
Mitchell lived an adventurous life, and absolutely no one saw this coming…
“Honestly, he was the closest thing to Jesus, in a new age way,” says close friend Justin Berry. The same friend who was with Mitchell the entire week leading up to his death.
Berry says Mitchell danced away the days at Burning Man, but cashed in before 10 pm each night. Friends figured he was weary from the heat. While Mitchell rested, Berry would take out his phone to capture selfies and special moments, and report back in the morning hours.
As far as Berry could tell, Mitchell stayed away from drug use and only drank a modest amount of craft beer during the event. On the night of the tragedy, Mitchell was separated from his usual group of friends and ventured off with others he knew from Switzerland.
“I wish we had all been together, I don’t know that this would have happened.”
Berry, as well as other friends and family members, are still trying to make sense of all of this…
“Maybe in some weird way he did this for us, to inspire us to make better decisions. I wish that he could have made better decisions, because he’s not coming back from this.”
The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has ruled Mitchell’s death a suicide, but his cause of death remains “cardiac arrest, bodily shock and third-degree burns on 97 percent of his body.”
As one of the kings of future house, and having just released an album entitled FUTURE, you’d expect Don Diablo to place a bit more emphasis on the genre in such a big release. Truthfully, there are only a handful of legitimate future house genres on the album, but it has already still become one of our favorite albums of the year so far.
Unfortunately, not everyone agrees. One fan commented on the album release lamenting the lack of future house, but Don kept his cool (contrary to Alesso) and took his time to explain just what was up.
“Last year I put out these FUTURE HOUSE tracks: Switch, You can’t Change Me, Momentum, Save A Little Love, My Tunnel Vision edit, Something Just Like This remix and my Future House / Piano House VIP mixes of Children of a Miracle and Take Her Place [halo emoji]. […] I would never neglect my Future House fans.”
At the end of the day, fans will carry their own opinions of any artist’s music – an artist can only do their best to convey the message they wish to send, and it’s pretty clear to us that Don has done just that.
Listen to FUTURE below if you haven’t already.
According to trusted Martin Garrix source @themartingarrixhub, Garrix’s collaboration with David Guetta and Brooks, “Like I Do,” premiered at the TimeOut72 Festival in Goa, India last year, is reportedly due out this month! Seeing as Garrix follows the New Music Friday timeline, that means that it’s either coming Feb 16 or Feb 23.
The single isn’t quite the progressive house that fans have been waiting to hear from Garrix, nor is it the pure pop he’s been producing recently, but more of a blend of the two. It reportedly features vocals from Stargate, you can hear a live rip from TimeOut72 below.

Fresh off his newly released single “Nuh Ready, Nuh Ready,” Calvin Harris is opening up about the change in his sound and his relationship with dance music.
The producer’s dancehall track with PartyNextDoor is the beginning of another new sound, even after straying with Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. Now, his whole reasoning behind that shift in his music is explained, thanks to an interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1 Radio.
“I basically took a year off dance music when I did all the Funk stuff. I thought I didn’t like it anymore… I was like wait, wait, wait. So actually some of the best producers in the world are EDM producers, even though they got shit on by everybody, the critics and cool music lovers. I’m sorry, but some of the best producers in the world are EDM and some of the best producers are Dutch.”
Don’t have to tell us twice.
As for festivals vs. more intimate shows, it’s a no-brainer for Harris…
“All that stuff got a little bit too impersonal. Standing up there and it’s the fireworks and all that stuff, but you’ve got no connection with anyone. And that’s why I actually love playing Vegas at the moment because I get to see people’s faces and get to see people enjoy their night. Those big festival shows which I wasn’t getting into personally other than a bit of money and money is, you know, the root of all evil.
“I haven’t done any meaningful festivals for years. Almost did one but I didn’t announce it because that’s the sort of guy I am. And also because I really might want to go back.”
It seems the Calvin Harris that we know is taking a step back to spend some serious time in the studio. Whatever he comes up with, we’ll definitely be listening.
