Stephen Colbert recently ended his iconic show The Colbert Report on Comedy Central with the exciting news of taking over The Tonight Show, but temporarily he is in between shows until The Tonight Show is ready for him. Well Stephen Colbert couldn't hold back from hosting a show and took matter into his own hands and visited the small town of Monroe, Michigan and took over their local Public Access show "Only In Monroe" and stepped in as the guest host. To make things even better he brought out a guest for this special edition of the show, and the guest is none other then Eminem.
Now if that doesn't already have you sold, just sit back and watch this simply hilarious, just under 60 minute long talk show. Stephen starts off delivering a funny tale between a local business and a Yelp customer which then brings us to the prize of the show with Eminem. I honestly can't figure out if Eminem is joking around and acting, or if geniuenly gets pissed off at Stephen's purposeful igornanace of Eninem's massive career writing it off as a hobby that he should just give up on.
Grab some pop corn, sit back, and watch one of the funnier interviews we've seen in quite some time. Enjoy!
Flume has began teasing tracks from his long awaited followup sophomore studio album that is still currently untitled. We recently heard one of the first songs “Some Minds” which was debuted with an incredible music video. Well today we get something new, a refreshing, expectedly epic remix of fellow Aussie act Collarbones and their single “Turning.” This song steps in a more indie house direction then we’ve seen from Flume, thanks to the indie nature of Collarbones and shows us a side that is equally as exciting. The drums and ambience propel the song with vocal chops and some cinematic drops. Listen below and pick up your copy. Enjoy!

Bringing a more melodic version with menacing synths, classic kick drums & snares, a walking bassline, and turntable scratching, Deadmau5 shows his versatility on his “quick and dirty retake on a fav.”

Kendrick Lamar's critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly is undoubtedly one of the most important albums in recent history, and this new video for “Alright” brings the visual side to the messages Kdot conveys through his music. This video splices together parts from “U” in the intro and moves into a new verse before it goes into the album version of “Alright" in an entirely black and white video. The visual interpretation displays racial issues and police brutality while Kendrick does some really crazy stunts flying around, dancing on street signs, and it ends with him getting shot by the police. Enjoy!

This year's Electric Forest festival in Rothbury, Michigan just completed its fifth year, and its best yet! The festival is known for having countless secret sets and suprises throughout the weekend, and the magnitude of what took place over the four days was quite staggering.
Thissongissick.com have thrown various late night parties in the past, including the first ever Big Grizmatik set (Big Gigantic, Gramatik and Griz together) amongst many more. We had some of the most epic parties this year, from a legendary Skrillex b2b Datsik b2b 12th Planet b2b Snails b2b Crizzly b2b Vaski set on Friday, an epic three and half hour Mr. Carmack set in the Forest on Saturday night, and one of the most unique parties we've ever been apart of.
On the last night of the festival, we went over to General Admission camping to team up with the "Holy Ship Fam" to throw an afterparty on top of an RV consisting of Big Gigantic's Dominic Lalli and Cherub's Jason Heubert both DJing, while Jeremy Salken went in on the drums. This became a make-shift stage, which quickly gathered well over a 1500 people below. They played live versions of some Big G classics and party anthems from Cashmere Cat, Trippy Turtle, Skrillex and more for the truly perfect unexpected ending set to a truly epic festival.
If you were one of the lucky fans to attend this party, you won't be ablt to forget this party that lasted until the sun was beginning to rise and then everyone dispersed for the final time.
