Summer Set Lineup 2015

React Presents and SIM Shows teamed up 3 years ago for the first ever Summer Set Music and Camping Festival which takes place in the outskirts of Minneapolis in a gorgeous outdoor setting over the weekend of Aug 14th-16th this year. For the  4th edition of the festival, they truly amped things up bringing out their most diverse and impressive lineup yet. Spanning electronic, hi-hop, and live music this festival has something special for everyone. The headliners set the tone and include deadamau5, Bassnectar, The Weeknd, and Big Gigantic which would already be enough to make us get to the fest. But just take a look at the unbelievable list of support: hip-hop icons Bone Thugs N Harmony performing with all original members playing E: 1999 in its entirety, plus Action Bronson, Carnage, Die Antwoord, G-Eazy, Lettuce, Lotus, ODESZA, Purity Ring, Railroad Earth, Thievery Corporation, Tycho, and Zeds Dead, to name a few. 

This only scratches the surface on this simply massive lineup for Summer Set, which has undoubtedly planted themselves in an entirely different league compared to other festivals in the country. 

Selling out is almost guaranteed. Early bird tickets are already gone, so don't miss out getting your tickets while still available here. 

Crystal Castles Surprise Fans By Dropping New Song “Frail”

Posted in Bangin, News by nick | Tags: ,

Crystal Castles Frail

The public was led to believe that electronic indie duo Crystal Castles was a thing of the past since front singer Alice Glass announced her removal from the group last October. Well producer and songwriter of the duo Ethan Kath just wrote a pretty shocking and exciting new message letting everyone know that Alice was not even apart of the groups' most popular songs like "Untrust Us", "Crimewave", "Vanished" and more. He has also shareed a brand new song. 

Ethan Kath shared this new song with this accompaning blurb: Moments later, Ethan has now removed most of this:

"i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. it should be rewarding for her considering she didn't appear on Crystal Castles' best known songs. (she's not on Untrust Us. Not In Love, Vanished, Crimewave, Vietnam, Magic Spells, Knights, Air War, Leni, Lovers Who Uncover, Violent Youth, Reckless, Year of Silence, Intimate, 1991, Good Time, Violent Dreams etc.). people often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, i didn't care." 

You can stream the full song below and lets hope this is the first piece of a forthcoming new EP or even album from Crystal Castles in the near future.

We are more than excited to see what comes of these collaborations. We will keep you posted as more info rolls in.

Skrillex Just Confirmed A Second Album For 2015

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

Skrillex 2015

Bass tastemaker Skrillex has planted back to the top of the game in the past year having released his long awaited debut studio album Recess last year, which was followed up with his much hyped collaborative Jack U album alongside Diplo earlier this year. If having these two albums under his belt, and playing an endless amount of festivals and headline shows across the globe wasn't enough… he has another new solo album coming out soon!

Skrillex went out a fun night of bowling with Interntional Art of Bowling team while visiting Australia and happened to calmly reveal the MASSIVE news, that after his Jack U album (which is now released), he would be dropping a new solo Skrillex album. This huge piece of information being revealed in such a random video was discoverd thanks to a Skrillex fan thread. 

We don't know much news, other than we should be expecting a full new Skrillex album, not even an EP, an album. Watch the video below to watch Sonny drop the bomb. If it doesn't immediatly start playing at the right part, skip ahead to 1:45.

With his last album featuring everyone from Fatman Scoop to Chance the Rapper, we can only dream of what collaborations are in store. Enjoy.

Kendrick Lamar Kanye West

The hip-hop gods are dancing around right now as a Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West collaboration may have just been confirmed. While this snippet might be short, it manages to get us unbelievably excited for what's to come. This is also after it's been revealed that Kendrick has a writing credit on Kanye's upcoming album.

We hear the full 30 second verse from Kendrick Lamar fiercely going in on Kanye West's new song "All Day."

This is also just a few short weeks after Kanye publicly praised K-dot.

Frank Ocean Has Announced His New Album

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

Frank Ocean New Album Boys Dont Cry

It seems that the rather secretive Frank Ocean has just announced his much anticipated third studio album, along with its title. He just shared the above photo on his website (Which is now temporarily down due to traffic), and his tumblr.

He posted this with the following caption

"'I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.'  #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY." 

This sounds like we can expect his third album in July, and will be titled Boys Don't Cry. It also looks like there might be either mutliple parts to the release or alternate covers, or even an accompanying magazine like we see in the picture.

skrillex full flex express 2015

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.

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. Although we don't have the full lineup of artists playing yet, we do have the full list of dates for the tour, so you can start planning ahead. If it's anything like the first year, you can expect a massive, extra diverse lineup. 

Tour Dates:

July 8th – Ottawa, ON
July 9th – Quebec City, QC
July 10th – Montreal, QC
July 11th – Toronto, ON
