After making headlines for a variety of reasons over the past few months, deadmau5 has just released some of the coolest news to date. The artist released an aerial photo via Twitter this morning announcing that he is set to build a 45,000 square foot mega studio. On top of this announcement, he also stated that he will be doing less club shows and more "epic stage shows".
He has said:
"where im putting EDM money. less club gigs, a few epic stage shows, a 45,000sqft studio complex for actual musicians."
It is very interesting to hear "for actual musicians", signifying that a big focus for the studio will be live elements, something that has always helped his production stand out.
This is also points to the potential expansion of his mau5trap label with a new roster of signed artists to have access to the studio upon completion. We're looking forward to what's to come!
Still exploding from the success of his debut studio album Money Sucks, Friends Rule, and just after releasing a free Rebirth version of one of it's songs, Dillon Francis shows no sign of slowing down. We just now got word of a brand new 4 song Moombahton EP on the horizon. We know it will have a colossal collaboration with Skrillex that you can hear below. The EP will also feature the song he opened his EDC Las Vegas set with, and 2 other brand new ones. This news has been revealed through a very exciting tweet just moments ago. See below!

Skrillex music videos tend to be a little outrageous, but with that being said they are always very entertaining. Bass ambassador Skrillex has unveiled his newest video for the track "Fuck That" from his debut studio album Recess. This is one of the more different sounding tracks we've heard from Skrillex stepping far away from the typical heavy sound hes is known for.
The video takes us through a visual journey of what seems to be a foreign interpretation of fight club. It starts off with our main character being released from some sort of underworld boxing training camp back into the arms of his presumed girlfriend. You would be naive to assume they were going home happily ever after as almost immediately after his release he receives a call that leads him back into the world of fighting that ends with an epic twist. Watch the video below and you can pick up your copy of the album today. Enjoy!

LooKas has been exploding on our radar on account of his remixes like "Lowrider" and originals like "Loko". The Miami based producer has recently decided to change things up and venture to the chiller side of things with a new future bass original. For this one he joined up with newcomers SMLE (who brought us "Feeling Good") to make "6 A.M.". The new track comes to life in extra-spacey glory and manages to even have a guitar solo that fits perfectly.

Jerry Folk has been making waves as the next producer to explode out of Norway, a country that's been overflowing with talent lately. We've featured his Lemaitre and ZZ Ward remixes which showcased his signature funky style. Today Jerry takes on another classic with Baby Bash's 2003 hit "Suga Suga" bringing it right up to speed. Highlighting the guitar lines and vocals the producer underscores with a blend of tropical house meets nu-disco beats. The strongly disco-influenced bass guitar and "Motherf-cker" samples are the little things that makes Jerry's sound really standout from the rest. Enjoy!
G-Eazy is back following up his insanely successful debut album These Things Happen with a brand new song. He remixes newcomer singer / rapper Kehlani by taking on her song “Get Away” and flipping it into his own. Providing two perfect verses contrasting with Kehlani's section over some lethal production adds up for the perfect combination. This song is stream only, and we can only hope for an official release soon. Enjoy!

Previous rebirths (remixes of his own songs), like "Without You" featuring T.E.E.D, "Masta Blasta", and a collaborative rendition of "Get Low" with DJ Snake have all managed to turn things up.

Belgian indie artist Selah Sue just released a new song featuring Childish Gambino and the collaboration sounds incredible. The upbeat electronic-influenced indie background sets the perfect tone for Gambino to come in with a smart verse adding just the right contrast.
My favorite line has to be “DYLON, Rap like this you an icon.”
You can pick up this single today through iTunes ahead of it’s release on Selah Sue’s Alone EP.
