Just about a year ago, Diplo and Snoop Dogg were both at the dance music festival Electric Zoo. The elder statesman of West Coast rap was spinning dubstep on the main stage under the moniker DJ Snoopadelic and the superstar producer was doing a characteristically rigorous set in an adjacent tent. Diplo was shirtless by the end of his performance, and Snoop was rapping "The Next Episode" before he finished his. Fast forward a year, and they've teamed up again.
Ultra Music Festival announced that the three-day electronic dance event in Miami would swell to two weekends in 2013, a move organizers tell The Huffington Post was in direct response to ever-increasing demand for the normally sold-out party. The event will run from March 15-17 and reconvene for a second go on March 22-24 in Miami's Bayfront Park. Tickets go on sale Wednesday.
Dan the Automator has made his way through a number of blog-friendly outfits (Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modeling School) and handled production for the Gorillaz, which is to say that our ears perked up when we heard about his new project. Pillowfight, a collaboration with hip-hop violinist Emily Wells, came about when Kid Koala (who's also in the new group) and Emily were paired up at "an artist workshop at a Canadian music festival." The result of their newfound friendships?
Who are the people who, after touring the Tower of London, including the Crown Jewels and the 150-wine bottle punch bowl made of gold, are like, “ah, yes, I definitely need to donate to the Historic Royal Services”?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
