Back in 2013, Skrillex turned heads as he embarked on a train powered festival which featured Diplo, Grimes, Pretty Lights, Koan Sound, Blood Diamonds and more. This could have very well been the start of Skrill and Diplo's Jack U supergroup. The moving festival tour was inspired by Edward Sharpe and Mumford & Son's earlier train tour. 

Well Skrillex has just shared some exciting news that the Full Flex Express train tour will return in 2015 and will be bigger than ever.

Robin Thicke and Pharrell To Pay 7.3 Million For Plagiarizing Marvin Gaye With ‘Blurred Lines’

Posted in Bangin, Chill, News by nick

Pharrell Williams Marvin Gaye

Robin Thicke and Pharrell were recently accused for plagiarizing Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up" with their #1 hit "Blurred Lines".

They have just been convicted of intellectual property infringement and the jury has awarded a massive $7.3 million dollars to Marvin Gaye's family.

Listen to both the songs below and you can hear the obvious similarities in the production and overall composition of the songs. It's pretty insane for such massive and respected artists, Pharrell specifically, to blatantly copy such a popular song.

Mysteryland USA 2015 Lineup Is Out Of Control Featuring Porter Robinson, Diplo, Kygo, Dillon Francis, Madeon and 100 more!

Posted in Bangin, Chill, News by nick | Tags: , , , , , ,

Mysteryland Lineup

The incredible folks at ID&T who are responsible for both iconic and globally renown festivals TomorrowLand and TomorrowWorld expanded their first live event Mysteryland to the US last year and it was quite a success. The festival took over the same location as the historic American music festival Woodstock 69' which provided the perfect backdrop to the new festival. The festival will be returning over the weekend of May 23rd – 24th this year.

Just minutes ago festival organizers unleashed the lineup for the 2015 edition of the festival, and man did they step it up for year two. 

Headliners include Diplo, Kygo, Dillon Francis, Porter Robinson, Madeon, Robin Schulz, GRiZ, Gramatik, The Martinez Brothers, Netsky and so many others!

This year’s festival also has an exceptionally well-curated lineup featuring a massive spread of genres.

With the likes of tropical wonderkid Kygo headlining the main stage it’s evident that the “Tropical House” explosion is not slowing down anytime soon. Rising stars Bakermat and Klingande are sure to help cement this wave of popularity as well.

Another group making an impact are all of the Electro-Funk/Soul acts like heavyweights Griz and Gramatik holding it down with Manic Focus which are all live acts that are sure to not disappoint.

Most impressive seems to be that American festivals such as Mysteryland are starting to curate lineups that include pioneers in the deep house and tech house genres. For tech house we have the much talked about Ibiza legends The Martinez Brothers headlining the Flying Circus stage on Sunday along with Martin Buttrich.  You know deep house is alive and well at Mysteryland when you have artists like UK’s Maya Jane Coles and Matthew Dear curating their own stage.

Although mainstream electronic music has been scaled back, Mysteryland still secured some all time favorites such as Porter Robinson, Diplo, Dillon Francis and Bro Safari. Overall a very well rounded line up that is sure to please.

There is little known about the next Kendrick Lamar album, but now we can expect it's release soon following Kendrick's recent tweet with a link to the iTunes preorder having a 3/23 release date.

The album is titled "Untitled" and we know will include "Blacker the Berry".

UPDATE: Kendrick has confirmed the album artwork and album title are both placeholders until the actual artwork and title are revealed.

Bassnectar and Rage Against The Machine Are Working Together

Posted in Bangin, News by nick | Tags: , ,

Bassnectar Rage Against The Machine

From his extra heavy music choice, to his energy filled sets and metal like hair and headbanging, Bassnectar is without a doubt the metalhead rock figure within the electronic world. This makes this newest bit of news all the more fitting as Bassnectar just shared a photo of himself with Tom Morello of iconic rock metal band Rage Against The Machine in the studio with the caption:

"In the studio with Tom Morello, raging against machines!!!"

He has played various bass infused metal bootlegs over the years, even including a remix of Rage's "Killing In The Name Of" in his live sets, so this is quite a natural collaboration. As we sit and patiently wait for whatever magic the two have cooked up you can get an idea of what it might sound like by listening to Bassnectar's remix of "Seek & Destroy" by Metallica below.

Posted in Bangin, Chill, News by Jake | Tags: ,

Mad Decent Boat Party Lineup

Last fall Diplo and his Mad Decent crew set out to the seas for their first ever cruise ship, the fittingly titled Mad Decent Boat Party. The 4 day long event went down in history as some of the most ratchet, out of control, and equally epic days for all those who had ever attended, including some of our team. Well the Norwegian Pearl cruiselines have somehow let Diplo and his crew take the boat over once more. 

The 2015 edition of the Mad Decent Boat Party will be departing from Miami on November 11th and the ship will set course to the brand new private beach of Cozumel, Mexico and will return on November 15th.

The lineup this year is also somehow even better featuring headliners Jack Ü, Diplo, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, ILoveMakkonen, Major Lazer, Thomas Jack, A-Trak, G-Eazy and many more others including Alison Wonderland, Ape Drums, Borgore, Brazzabelle, Brillz, Brunch Bounce, Chris Lorenzo, Dirty South Joe, Eli & Fur, ETC!ETC!, Gent & Jawns, Giraffage, Grandtheft, Hayden James, HoodboiJauz, Jubilee, Keys N Krates, Lunice, Martin Solveig, Mija, MØ, Nadastrom, Oliver Heldens, Party Favor, Paul Devro, Sam Feldt, Shash'U, Skrillex, Smalltown DJS, Snakehips, TJR, Torro Torro, Troyboi, TWRK, and more!

Everyone who went last year has already booked cabins for this year, and convinced all their friends to do the same. It's going to be selling out far in advanced this year, so if you can make it work, do whatever you can to make it out for this year. Pre-book your cabins now while they are still available. We hope to see you all out on the boat this year!

Pretty Lights Announces First Ever Multi Day Camping Event In Telluride

Posted in Bangin, Chill, Events, News by nick | Tags: , ,

Pretty Lights Telluride 2015

"Two Nights Under The Starlit Skies In The Majestic Colorado Mountains"

Pretty Lights, one of the most influential faces in live electronic music, and Colorado's hero, always continues to keep his fans guessing with unexpected twists every single year. Last year he managed to work with the Colorado Symphony to have them play with him for his last two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.. a venue he's been selling out for over 4 years now. He has headlined festivals all across the world and played in the smallest and biggest of cities. This week he has revealed some very exciting, and long awaited news, the first ever true Pretty Lights camping event. The guy has been dominating the camping festival circuit for years now, so it only made sense.

He has chosen the gorgeous location of Telluride, Colorado, and specifically the Telluride Town Park, out in the open right next to the gorgeous Rocky Mountains as close as you can get to the stars. He is set takeover the amazing outdoor location over August 28th and 29th this summer where he will be making history. 

This is what Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights has to say about the special 2 day gathering: 

"I've thought a lot about what a perfect place to throw a Pretty Lights concert might be, and what that actually means. I think that Telluride Town Park might be a place like that. The energy that resonates there is beyond the cusp of my own understanding but it is powerful and undeniable. I think that the seclusion of Telluride creates a real opening to focus on getting in touch.. with each other, ourselves, and the vibrations we experience as music, light, and life. PLUS the stars shine incredibly bright and the mountains are jaw dropping. These two nights in Telluride will be an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue," 

You can purchase tickets to this special, extremely unique event through here on Feb 27th.
