Baauer announced earlier this week that he would be tossing out USB sticks like the one picture above at his upcoming live shows featuring some unreleased songs on them and asked once they had been discovered to “share it with your friends” and “upload it to the Internet”. We got our hands on one of the sticks and now have the 4 songs to share in all their glory.
We get 4 tracks from the USB Stick, “BADDST2″, “RASBERRY”, “XTC”, and “1Snap”.
They all pack Baauer’s unbeatable blend of Electronic and Hip-Hop music, and really show how much more then artist is then just another Trap producer. We couldn’t be more stoked on Baauer releasing new music in such a cool way, and from the sound of his tweets we should be expecting to hear more USB sticks in the future. Stream and grab this one below. Enjoy. Follow Baauer on Twitter and tell him how dope he is for doing this.

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:
