G-Eazy just released ‘Far Alone’ ft. Jay Ant which is the first single from his upcoming album These Things Happen. The song with this music video might be some of G-Eazy’s best work to date. It follows both present day and young still swagged out Gerald around for a cool unique video. The production pays tribute to the Bay Area sound with G-Eazy dropping some of his best verses yet managing to talk about weed and partying and not giving any fucks in his own way never taking it too seriously. Here’s his words on the track and upcoming album.
“This album serves as my proper introduction to the world, so the first story I have to tell is where I’m from on ‘Far Alone,’” he says. “I’ve been rapping and making beats since I was young so it was important for me to incorporate the influence of the Bay Area into what my sound has evolved into. This project marks the next chapter to me; a lot of reflection on everything that got me here, for better or for worse.” -G-Eazy
G-Eazy has truly defined his sound more then ever, and I couldn’t be more stoked to hear some more from the project. Enjoy.

The UK native who now resides in LA has left the title for his album up for interpretation, but agrees that he will be causing Damage Control on the often stagnant electronic world. Listen to the album here, and read our intimate interview with Mat Zo below the player.
Mat Zo – Damage Control (Album Stream) | iTunes
TSIS: Your debut album ‘Damage Control” includes over 15 tracks while other producers strictly releasing single after single, what inspired this bold statement?
MZ: It wasn’t really a conscious move to be honest. It was more for myself to experiment with new sounds and produce music that differs from my previous releases. Writing this album has been long process over the past 4 years and most of the tracks on the album now aren’t the same ones I started with back then… they’ve all evolved into different pieces and bits.
“This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into.”
TSIS: The album features not only Electro House, Trance, Drum & Bass, but Hip-Hop and Rock influences. Is this your life time of influences all conveyed into one cohesive project?
MZ: Yes. This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into. After listening to a bunch of different genres over the last few years, ‘Damage Control’ features the output of what I’ve made from hearing those styles of music.
[Exclusive Video Footage] Skrillex Unveils New Music and Talks About 2014 Plans Including Collaborations in Recent InterviewPosted in News, Video by Bryan | Tags: Bjork, Day of the Dead, Hard Festival, Interview, Rolling Stone, Skrillex
Skrillex made his mark once again this past weekend headlining HARD Events ‘Day of the Dead’ music festival in downtown Los Angeles, CA. On top of a jaw dropping performance, everyone in attendance was lucky enough to hear a hefty amount of new tracks that we expect to be released sometime next year. Skrillex spoke with Rolling Stone magazine about the performance and his plans for next year. In the interview, RS asked about the six uniquely diverse new tracks he debuted at DOTD and Skrillex replied by saying:
They definitely cover a lot of ground, and there’s still more stuff on the record that is yet to be seen. It’s still me, but it’s like… still the same fabic, but a new coat, a better coat.
Skrillex also revealed that Icelandic singer/songwriter sensation Björk was on the top of his list of people he’d like to collaborate with; stating that:
“Björk’s someone I’ve loved since I’ve been a vocalist, and we did some touring in South America two years ago. [We] talked about making stuff and she even mentioned it in an interview at some point, so I gotta check that off the bucket list. That’d be dope, to do some cool, vibe-y stuff with her.”
Lastly, RS tossed up the important question of what we all can expect from the talented producer in 2014:
I’m gonna go it at hard next year. ’14 is gonna be super exciting, I’m gonna be out there and doing some new shit.
Check out our exclusive footage of Skrillex playing one of the new tracks below:

This has allowed him to creatively fuse these genres into his own music. Tiësto also mentions being re-influenced by his older Trance sound from seeing so many amazing Trance acts play throughout the world since his last album release. He manages to let us know his next album is very different from anything in the past.
