    For many, pressing play on the perfect playlist is just as important as lighting candles or dimming the lights before getting down and dirty. And electronic dance music is a powerful aphrodisiac, a new study by ZipHealth suggests.
    According to data from the US-based online pharmacy, EDM is the sixth most popular genre to listen to while having sex, falling behind hip-hop and R&B, among others. Of those who enjoy listening to electronic dance music while getting frisky, the most popular artists played during intimacy include deadmau5 and Hippie Sabotage.
    They also examined the top 10 artists across genres who were most popularly played while having sex. The Weeknd took the top spot, and other major contemporary artists to appear on the list include Lana Del Rey, Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift and Rihanna.
    The study's methodology was based on the analysis of over 11,000 Spotify playlists branded with sexual keywords and phrases like "making love," "BDSM," "freaky" and more. ZipHealth also surveyed over 1,000 Americans on their music listening habits during sex.
    So, could listening to music during sex actually be good for you? The research found that 68% of respondents who listen to music during intercourse experience reduced performance anxiety while 63% said it significantly increases the duration of sex. Those who listen to music during sex were also found to have intercourse more often and feel more satisfied with their sex lives when compared to those who don't.
    Music could also be an indicator of sexual preferences like kinks—people who listen to music during sex were 36% more likely to have a fetish than those who don't. The study also claimed one in three people who listen to EDM during intercourse have had sex in public.

    In the quiet spaces between the iconic—and tormenting—performances, a new Avicii photobook unveils the soul of the musician who made the world dance.
    Unveiling a mosaic of memories, Avicii: The Life and Music of Tim Bergling includes "rare personal moments" from the life of the storied DJ and electronic dance music producer, who in 2018 tragically died by suicide at the age of 28.
    The photobook was developed in collaboration with the Tim Bergling Foundation, a charitable organization launched by Avicii's family in 2019 to fund research and develop preventative solutions for young people experiencing suicidal thoughts. All profits from the book will reportedly benefit the foundation.
    "We are proud to honor Tim with this book," Avicii's parents, Klas Bergling and Anki Lidén, said in a joint statement. "We keep hearing about how much he and his music have meant to people. We hope his fans will enjoy this photographic journey and the story of Tim."
    Avicii.Sean Eriksson
    "It makes me happy to see him happy," Bergling added in comments provided to the PA news agency. "We have very nice memories from his childhood and youth... At the same time, there is pain knowing the reality."
    The heartbreaking final moments of Avicii's life are revisited in a new documentary, Avicii: I'm Tim, which premiered over the weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival. The intimate film features never-before-heard interviews with the legendary DJ, who laments, among other trials and tribulations, his addiction to painkillers.
    "I haven’t seen the documentary, which has now showed at Tribeca, so I will build up the courage to see it," Bergling said when asked about the film.
    "[Avicii] was one of a kind," he added. "I hope he will be remembered for many years."
    The hardcover photobook contains 192 pages and costs $39.00. You can purchase a copy here.

    British DJ and producer Franky Wah is dealing with every artist’s worst fear after being robbed during a recent trip to Ibiza. In an emotional Instagram post, Wah shared that his bags containing “irreplaceable” items like music and his laptop were stolen from his car in the Jesus area of the island.
    The loss is absolutely devastating for the veteran artist who has built an acclaimed career over the past decade with releases on labels like Sasha’s Last Night on Earth and Anjunadeep.
    Franky Wah, who holds a residency for his Shen label at Ibiza’s Club Chinois, is offering a reward for any information related to retrieving his stolen goods. Friends and supporters flooded the comments offering sympathy and sharing their own similar horror stories of losing invaluable creative work.
    Always backup, backup and backup
    This heartbreaking situation underscores how crucial it is for musicians, producers, and creative professionals to take every possible precaution to protect their work. While the details of Wah’s case are still unclear, a few basic security measures could have prevented or minimized this catastrophic loss:
    Always use laptop tracking software and geolocalization to monitor your device’s whereabouts Routinely back up all files to an external hard drive and cloud storage Never leave valuables unattended, even for a short period of time Use encryption and password protection for sensitive files Our deepest sympathies go out to Franky Wah during this unimaginably difficult time.
    While he may never recover those “priceless” and “irreplaceable” musical works, we hope he can find some justice and closure.
    Any members of the music community with potential information about this robbery should contact Franky Wah directly through his Instagram.
