After just a week after throwing a successful SOLD-OUT 2 night party at the iconic Red Rocks known as Rowdytown, we are blessed with even more Big Gigantic greatness. The duo have been the latest targets to take the reigns of Diplo's well known Diplo and Friends radio show on BBC Radio 1Xtra. This comes after the group has fostered a strong relationship over the years with Diplo having played a large amount of his Mad Decent Block Party events.
For the group's Diplo radio debut they deliver a solid hour of their signature sound with live Saxophone, Drums and all. We get a solid blend of their unreleased remixes, originals and favorite tracks as well. It is cool to see a change of pace in the Diplo and Friends cast, and Big G certainly impressing fans new and old. Hear the first listen of the mix below. Enjoy!

Just last week Childish Gambino flipped the internet upside by releasing both an 11 song free mixtape titled STN MTN along with a 6 song EP called Kauai. Well we haven't been able to stop replaying the new material and someone online has found even more music.
Secret songs were something you used to discover on select albums at the very end, minutes after the last song would play. In the digital era, the idea of a "secret song" has almost vanished. A Reddit user found an acapella (vocal only) for an unreleased song hidden on Gambino's website and they then matched up the vocals with the "3005 (Beach Picnic Edtion)" track from the EP and the two matched up perfectly. They then put the new matched up song as one cohesive track online titled as "Secret Song". Then Gambino validates the Reddit discovery by tweeting out the thread discussing the matter, solidifying the new song.

After Pharrell collaborated with the French duo Daft Punk on two songs (Get Lucky & Loose Yourself To Dance) from their grammy winning album, he brought the guys out to collaborate on a song for his own album that saw incredible success. The song "Gust Of Wind" exploded when it hit the internet earlier this year, and now Pharrell has brought the amazing track to life.
He has enlisted director Edgar Wright responsible for movies like "Shaun Of The Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim Versus The World" to direct the film.
Today we get to see the first preview teaser of the music video with Pharrell in his now signature ranger hat, fitting for him walking through some forest surroundings. We then see some oversized rock sculptures of the Daft Punk helmets and the video leaves us on the edge of our seat driving us wild until we can see the rest. With Edgar Wright responsible for directing this, we can expect an eerie, movie quality sci-fi journey with Pharrell and the Daft Punk robots brought to life like never before.. at least we can hope.
What do you think the video will contain? Watch and comment below:
