Porter Robinson delivers the final single before his highly anticipated genre-shifting sophomore album Worlds is released worldwide in just weeks.

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!

From the starting car and movie theater scenes to the zombies and even the red leather jacket, 2 Chainz has successfully taken the shoes of Michael.

Many of us have been lead to believe that the days of the "mashup" (mashing two songs) are all but dusted, but NYC duo The White Panda have moved into original material like their remix of The White Stripes, but are also still perfecting the art of mashing up songs into something new. The duo have brought together the infectious vocals from Disclosure's deep house anthem "Latch" and blended them perfectly with the instrumental and vocals from Mike Posner's throwback single "Cooler Than Me". They are calling the result "Cooler Than Latch" letting the Disclosure tune be heard in a whole new way. Grab yourself a free download below and above all… Enjoy
