A couple of weeks back Rustie dropped off the latest single from his upcoming album, his second collaboration with Detroit rapper Danny Brown that I literally haven't been able to stop replaying since. The song "Attak" is brought to life through music video form thanks to director Peter Mardsen, delivered in quite a minimalistic fashion. We get a blank room with a clean cut Danny in the center laying down his fiery verses that while some lines may have been hard to decipher, has been brought to life as the lyrics are animated across the screen throughout. This is the latest single from Rustie's forthcoming sophomore album release, Green Language, set to release through Warp Records on August 26th. You can get this song and the previous single 'Raptor' as a free download when you pre-order the album today. Enjoy!

Diplo is quite the guy I must say. He's never one to let up on providing entertainment from his stream of greatness via social media or jokingly acknowledging that his recent cut of Lorde "Tennis Court" didn't exceed the remix done by friend and Australian powerhouse producer Flume. The Mad Decent head honcho recently took to Reddit to conduct an AMA and shared some juicy news on his supergroup project with Skrillex known as Jack U. The breakout collaboration of these two titans is coming out with a full length mixtape, which is something that could potentially crash the internet upon its release. The overflow of new material between the two found its way into Diplo's recently as he played out their first single "Take You There" in front of a daytime crowd. Though the video doesn't have the best audio, you can hear the excitement (largely the two girls confessing their love for Diplo) as songstress Kiesza lays down her pipes over a Jack U produced trap and bass beat that screams massive banger. Until we see the official release of the single or the news on the highly anticipated mixtape… Enjoy!

Exclusive Behind The Scenes Footage Of Skrillex & Friends Rehearsing Before Bonnaroo “SuperJam” [FULL SETLIST]Posted in Bangin, Events, Video by nick | Tags: Big Gigantic, Bonnaroo, Chance the Rapper, Fatman Scoop, Janelle Monáe, Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Skrillex, Superjam, Thundercat, Warpaint, Zedd
Bonnaroo is possibly one of the most diverse music festivals across the globe and one of the things that makes it so special is the unique "SuperJam" sets where musicians from all styles of music collaborate for once in a lifetime performances.
We reported a few months back about the announcement of Skrillex's SuperJam bringing out Big Gigantic to help set the tone just right. This is also the first ever SuperJam in Bonnaroo's history to be focused around electronic music with rappers, R&B singers, and live musicians filling out the spaces. The occasion called for Skrillex to meet with his star studded cast of band mates the week leading up to the festival to rehearse their set. In the exclusive behind the scenes footage below, we see Skrillex jaming out with the likes of legendary New Orleans rapper Mystikal, comedian / pianist Craig Robinson, both Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken of Big Gigantic, Fatman Scoop and many others.
The actual SuperJam took place on Saturday night at the festival and damn it was legendary. Ring leaders Skrillex and Big Gigantic's list of "friends" included so much raw musical talent we hope we aren't missing anyone. The list of friends includes Zedd, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead, Damian Marley, Chance the Rapper, A$AP Ferg, Layrn Hill, Janelle Monae, Warpaint, Thundercat, and the surprise of Fatman Scoop, Mystikal, and Craig Robinson on the keys.
The set itself included countless covers of music outside of electronic foundations with a new set of artists coming in every 3 – 4 songs and the entire jam lasting close to three hours in length. In the truest of ways, it was the first ever Super Jam with an electronic focus to happen in front of a live audience and those who were lucky enough to witness the spectacle were treated to the rawness of creative expression in todays modern form. Those who were lucky enough to be there watching the pefroamnce with us are the only ones lucky enough to ever experience this once in a lifetime "Jam". You can view the video below of some of the madness that took place and the photo's taken. Enjoy

Porter Robinson status amongst electronic music's elite is without question as the young producer prepares to release the studio album of his dreams titled Worlds on the prestigious Astralwerks Records. We've already heard tracks off the upcoming release, "Sea Of Voices" & "Sad Machines", but now see one of the most creative pieces of art and music combined as the highly anticipated single "Lionhearted" is delivered with quite the visual aspect as well after it's premiere on BBC during Zane Lowe's show. The cinematography on display showcases beautiful scenes of Porter and a gang of Harajuku ladies taking over the streets of somewhere in Japan adding color to the dull surroundings perfectly accenting the songs' tranquil synth patterns, and lively vocals from Urban Cone. The story culminates in a unexpected manner that will leave avid Porter Robinson fans stunned, yet could have a deeper meaning of his core fans backlash at his new sound. You can watch the music video below and pre-order Worlds via iTunes now! Enjoy

We all remember the international hit "Gangnam Style" that propelled Korean pop singer / songwriter PSY into super stardom and caused numerous DJs to release a steady stream of remixes across the electronic music spectrum. Well he's back at it again, this time enlisting legendary rapper Snopp Dogg on the new single "HANGOVER" which receives a comical music video to boot. The foundation for which PSY and Snoop lay verses over is filled with trap elements and danceable electro beats while the artists are seen swimming naked in fountains, bar fighting, knocking over shots like domino's, and much more visually appealing material. This single has the potential to be another radio charting sensation this summer and you can grab a digital download for you music catalog on June 9th. Enjoy
