Watch Skrillex’s Epic Bonnaroo SuperJam Full Documentary Ft. Big Gigantic, Zedd, Damian Marley, Members Of The Grateful Dead, The Doors & Much MorePosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: A$AP Ferg, Big Gigantic, Bonnaroo, Cage the Elephant, Damian Marley, Grateful Dead, Lauryn Hill, Skrillex, Superjam, The Doors, Zedd
One of the longest running major festivals in the US, Bonnaroo recently announced it's full 2015 lineup last week. Along with the lineup announcement, was a teaser of the Skrillex and Friends SuperJam documentary, which was filmed leading up to and during last year's groundbreaking performance. Well today the festival has released the documentary in it's entirety for our viewing pleasure.
The teaser opens with a quote from Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, who's band member Robby Krieger was actually apart of this very SuperJam:
"The new generation's music .. it might rely heavily on electronics"
SuperJams are known for being themed on a specific genre of music and bringing in singers and musicians from every genre to perform outside of their expected style; well 2014 was the debut year for electronic music. It only made sense bringing Skrillex to help host the epic set, along with Big Gigantic in which Dominic Lalli acted as the musical director and Jeremy Salken was the core drummer of the supergroup.
The laundry list of special guests included Zedd, A$AP Ferg, Lauryn Hill, Damian Marley, Thundercat, Mystikal, members of Incubus, Cage the Elephant, Warpaint as well as members from iconic American rock groups Grateful Dead and The Doors. Even some unexpected additions like Craig Robinson from The Office who showcased his singing skills in the mix. Seeing how an electronic curated jam session can be bringing in artists from across all genres is a massive statement for how far electronic music has come and become part of our culture.
You can now stream the entire documentary below and also through the U-verse Bonaroo website.
Also, Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic and Paul Peck, the SuperJam's musical director and producer respectively, are both set to answer some questions about the Jam in a Reddit AMA later today (8pm EST). Connect with the Reddit AMA here > Reddit.com/bonnaroo

Madeon Is Set To Have Bastille, Passion Pit, and Foster The People On New Album + Releases Gramatik Remix of “You’re On”Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: Gramatik, Madeon, Remix
French music prodigy Madeon has revealed some juicy details to Billboard about his much anticipated debut studio album titled Adventure. The album has been many years in the making and is set to release March 30th.
According to Billboard, the producer took the beginning of 2014 off from touring for studio sessions with some exciting new collaborators; including the likes of Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, Foster The People’s Mark Foster, and Bastille’s Dan Smith. Working with all these amazing singer / songwriters is a step towards creating the original sound Madeon has always wanted to.
This is what the young producer had to say about his distaste with being labeled as “EDM”:
"I don't feel very related to [the EDM] scene, I just don't care that much to be honest," he says. "I don't listen to dance releases. And I mean 'dance' in the sense of this narrow, specific brand of dance music. I guess at a point I felt maybe more excited by it, and it wasn't a conscious effort to get away from it, but I never liked 'EDM'. I was just doing my thing, and suddenly the world just slaps something on you and you go, 'OK.' I just want to be able to do my thing.”
On top of all this news we have an exciting new remix of Madeon’s lead single “You’re On” by the Slovenian electro-soul producer Gramatik. He works his signature funky soul filled sound full of added guitar sections and flawless sampling. Enjoy!

Excited to bring you the latest from a very talented artist / producer that hasn't been featured nearly enough on TSIS, Philly's own Swizzymack. Today we have an impressive new remix from Swizzy taking on one of Drake's more recent songs "How About Now". He completely reimagines the song with some extremely effected sampling that changes speed rapidly throughout creating an interesting result. It carries out some jersey club characteristics like tracks from Trippy Turtle or Hoodboi, yet Swizzy makes it his own with a chopped and screwed trap twist, labeling it 'Philly Club Music'.
