Electronic music poster child Skrillex recently answered questions from eager fans for a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) in between hosting his own brand new Beats Radio show, overseeing the release of his label OWSLA's Worldwide Broadcast compilation LP which included his team effort alongside MUST DIE! titled "VIP's."
While talking with fans on the AMA, Sonny was asked a question pertaining to his unreleased song "Bug Hunt" in the Disney movie "Wreck It Ralph." Reddit user ShotsLotta asked, "Gotta ask it, why did you release a remix of 'Bug Hunt' and not the original? The original is way too good to remain unreleased forever."
Skrillex answered the question by stating, "It was meant to just live in the Hero's Duty scene of Wreck It Ralph… also its not really a full song. It was just sort of made to fit the scene of the movie. I've just moved onto so many other things since i finished working on that movie.. But perhaps one day I'll open up that project file again and complete it…"
Then after several other fans kept bringing up the subject, Skrillex answered everyones prayers with, "But forreall, I didnt realize how many of you really love OG bughunt… Puts a new fire under my ass to finish it, put it out… but here's the question.. There are 2 versions..Which to do prefer? The one i played at Tomorrowland 2012 Or the one thats at the end of the 'Skrillex in Mexico' clip?"
So guys, Skrillex has asked, now what will be the answer? He's left it up to us. Check out both versions of the song below and shoot him a tweet to let him know your choice!
The 3 man wrecking crew of a production unit Point Point last stole our attention with the innovative future bass tune "All This." They now return with a brand new song that has an interesting twist to it.
The new song slyly called "F+L" samples Kanye West's "Flashing Lights" while making sure to keep things fresh. Using the former songs signature orchestral sound, the song begins with a slow build for over a minute and a half only to pick up into an all out future bass jam. Point Point keep Kanye's anthemic synth progressions but retune them to their own taste while throwing in a dizzying array of flowing sounds atop the beautiful orchestral vibes. Listen for yourself below, enjoy.

Chicago production duo Autograf have kept a nice flow of colorful original content with their success following “Dream,” “Metaphysical,” and “Running.” Now they’ve just finished their new Future Soup EP and have shared another vibrant original tune as the title track off the forthcoming project.
“Future Soup” brings a prominent, funky, deep bass line that rumbles throughout the track and really kicks in during the chorus. The house drums compliment the synth placements and infectious baselines while Patrick Baker's vocals are a nice combo alongside the catchy instrumental as this first track is already sounding like a hit! While their signature sound is apparent, they bring a new element on this track and we can’t wait to hear the entire 5 track EP due on March 11th. Stream their new track below and catch them on their Metaphysical Tour ; see the dates after the jump.

Quickly becoming one of the most exciting trap producers out there, NGHTMRE has been a site regular through an endless stream of releases. We last heard from the LA producer on his collabs with Flosstradamus on "Lighters Up" and Boombox Cartel on "Aftershock". Now the LA based beat maker returns with a brand new original "Burn Out."
With the track, NGHTMRE also gives us some very exciting news. The song is actually a cut off of his forthcoming project the NGHTMRE EP. "Burn Out" is just one of the two songs that NGHTMRE has decided to bless us with today. The other track, "Prelude," is a brief 1:40 minute piano ballad that will serve as the intro to the project. As "Prelude" comes to a dreamy close, "Burn Out" then slowly but surely erupts into an explosion of booming bass and jolting drums sure to bring listeners back into NGHTMRE's world of trap.
Expect to hear the NGHTMRE EP in full on its scheduled 3/25 release date. As always though, we'll be sure to keep you posted! For now, enjoy the TSIS premiere of "Burn Out" and grab a free download.
