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!

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.
