Diplo is quite the guy I must say. He's never one to let up on providing entertainment from his stream of greatness via social media or jokingly acknowledging that his recent cut of Lorde "Tennis Court" didn't exceed the remix done by friend and Australian powerhouse producer Flume. The Mad Decent head honcho recently took to Reddit to conduct an AMA and shared some juicy news on his supergroup project with Skrillex known as Jack U. The breakout collaboration of these two titans is coming out with a full length mixtape, which is something that could potentially crash the internet upon its release. The overflow of new material between the two found its way into Diplo's recently as he played out their first single "Take You There" in front of a daytime crowd. Though the video doesn't have the best audio, you can hear the excitement (largely the two girls confessing their love for Diplo) as songstress Kiesza lays down her pipes over a Jack U produced trap and bass beat that screams massive banger. Until we see the official release of the single or the news on the highly anticipated mixtape… Enjoy!

The explosive bass oriented duo known as Knife Party have kept themselves busy in the studio over the last few months working on a new album and they recently revealed some exciting details on the upcoming release via Twitter. The full lenght debut artist album will be titled Abandon Ship and will feature 12 tracks with 9 of them already complete and scheduled for the album, 5 in the "maybe, maybe not" pile and another 5 in the early stages of creation. If any of these tracks are close the the madness contained on Knife Party's most recent Haunted House EP, we can surely expect a major contender in the highly anticipated electronic music albums whenever they decide to unleash the fury. We hope to at least here some of new album this coming weekend when we attend the 3rd annual Spring Awakening Music Festival in Chicago, IL and if so, expect details to be shared on the site! Until then… Enjoy

[PREMIERE] Pharrell Williams ft Daft Punk – Gust Of Wind (Autograf Remix) : Future House / Disco [Free Download]Posted in Chill, News, Premieres by Bryan | Tags: Autograf, Daft Punk, Free Download, Future house, Pharrell, Pharrell Williams
Its become almost customary with every new Autograf remix for the trio of mysterious producers to outdo themselves from previous releases (Marvin Gaye's "Grapevine" and Stevie Wonder's "Superstition") each time and today we are honored to premiere their latest offering for your audible pleasure. With Pharrell Williams recent studio album G I R L inspiring a number of artists to takeover tracks from the release, Autograf have boldly stepped to plate to turn out a future house rendition of "Gust Of Wind" which was originally produced by Grammy winning duo Daft Punk.
The shear amount of good vibes oozing over the beat is enough to have you dancing uncontrollably as the trio implement a catchy glitch synth pattern and disco elements into the rhythm. This of course coincides with the distortion of Pharrell's vocals perfectly, making for one sensational remix with endless playability throughout the summer. But wait… there are more goods to come from Autograf this season as this release marks the debut of their "Future Summer" remix series; so stream the track below, grab a free download on us, and look out for more music coming soon! Enjoy

Slovenia to New York based producer / DJ Gramatik is riding the preverbal wave of success after his hugely successful artist album The Age of Reason was premiered here at TSIS recently along with embarking on a worldwide tour. One of the albums most eerie tracks, the slow paced "Brave Men", has been brought to life in full cinematic glory via an official music video. Shot on location in the city of New Orleans, we see the story unfold of man getting taken to jail for what appears to be abuse of his wife. The story shifts to the wife attending a female version of the underground fight ring from the movie Fight Club as she channels the anger towards her husband through the woman she is fighting in stunning form. Sit back and watch and be sure to download Gramatik's new album for free as well! Enjoy

This is the big one folks! While visiting Toronto for a stop on the The Mothership Tour, Dillon Francis and Skrillex meet up with deadmau5 for the longest "Coffee Run" to date with the episode clocking in at an actual feature film length (Over an hour and a half!). With such a good amount of time recorded, a whole lot of comical conversation took place amongst some reportable information that will peak the interest of many. deadmau5 talks about hitting the road for a tour in 2015 (though we hope this takes place closer to the end of this year), Skrillex and Dillon have collaborated on two tracks thus-far while on tour, Skrillex is finishing one release with What So Not (guessing with just Emoh Instead and not Flume), and a Skrillex x Milo & Otis joint venture has at least been started. Other highlights include deadmau5 trying to pass off as Bob Saget around the 38 minute mark, the three producers rocking out to Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades" (50:47), and the constant verbal distain for Toronto traffic. Sit back and enjoy the video below!

It feels like only yesterday that UK producer Feed Me delivered his exceptional debut artist album Calamari Tuesday, which caused a frenzy throughout the electronic music community. Having taken time off to work on amplifying his live sets with a newly designed TEETH stage production, Feed Me is ready to hit the road this summer with a North American bus tour and plans to release a new 4 track EP on his label, Sotto Voce. The first single from the EP is an electro driven beast appropriately titled "Time To Myself"; a screeching synth pattern twists and turns around energetic bass blasts in a manner only Feed Me could execute. Stream the release below and sign up for pre-sale tickets for the Psychedelic Journey tour now! Enjoy

Porter Robinson is one of the most exciting artists to come out of the seemingly stale side of big name dance music side in recent years and has captured the attention of many with the highly anticipated release of his second full length artist album Worlds. We've already seen two tracks unveiled as "Sea of Voices" and "Sad Machine" created an uproar of excitement internationally. The album is set to release through iconic North American dance imprint label Astralworks and will see Porter performing a series of shows in support of the album. The tour kicks off on August 28th in Vancouver and will run all throughout the US and Canada ending in Miami on October 18th. He is bringing out the very talented Norwegian live electronic act Lemaitre, who will be opening up the night through the length of the tour. Although the dates are far later in the year, with his track record for live shows selling out and added excitement of the new album I wouldn't wait too long to grab tickets when they go on sale this Thursday at 10 am MST.
