We are down to just under two weeks until Dillon Francis's debut full length album Money Sucks, Friends Rule is unleashed upon the world. Today Dillon has provided the ultimate throw back Thursday with his newest single "Love in the Middle of a Firefight" featuring none other than Panic! At The Disco's lead singer Brand Urie. Dillon goes on to say "it's definitely one of my favorite songs on the album and I'm so happy I finally get to share it with the world!!! I hope this shows you how diverse all of my album is going to be!"
"Love in the Middle of a Firefight" is a step in a different direction from the previous high energy festival tracks we've previewed on the upcoming album. Brandon's vocals are vibrant and lush and when paired with the melody creating a very pleasant upbeat atmosphere. Really looking forward to this release.

Earlier this year Chicago local G Herbo aka Lil Herb recruited two of the city’s finest rappers for a huge remix of his song "Fight Or Flight”. The song went relatively under the radar and has been given a new life thanks to a fresh new music video. Seeing a Chicago legend Common and the city’s new star Chance the Rapper link up with Lil Herb makes up for some amazing chemistry with all rappers killing their verses. The video follows Herb around Chi with some new clips covering the city’s rampant violence.

The mission is simple for those stepping up to remix a Viceroy track; to further enhance the tropical vibes in a chill, electric manner, which is exactly what promising NYC producer David Edwards has for us today.

You won’t be able to keep yourself from catching the feel good vibes and dancing after the first listen, and we should all thank David for releasing this as a free download!

The always amazing Feed Me has done it again, surprising us this time with a rendition of Caribou's 'Back Home'. The UK Producer quoted on his Soundcloud saying “I have loved Caribou's music for a long time so I sang and produced this my own way for fun.”
A departure from his usual high energy style, Feed Me takes the original tracks more upbeat and light sound and twists in his own flare making it more dark and eerie. His signature synths are present and when layered over the drum pattern paired with his own vocals really make this quite an amazing cover. This reminds us of his also 2011 cover remix of Two Door Cinema club's "What You Know" and is hopefully a sign of more covers to come from Feed Me. Stream the song only for now and check back for a release or free download. Enjoy
There has been quite a few remixes surfacing of Danish indie singer MØ's "Don't Wanna Dance," but the Phazz edition may take the cake for most unique. This 22 year old French producer takes an interesting approach to this growingly popular tune and crafts a new song that's nothing like the original. Phazz brings a more mellow, downtempo vibe with his remix as vocal effects are used alongside a slow, wobbling bassline. Stream the song below and grab a free download thanks to Phazz. Enjoy

3LAU is someone we have been promoting since his early bootleg mashup days, sponsoring his first ever "Dance Floor Filth Volume 1" a couple of years back which jump started his entire career. He has grown far past mashups with some very successful originals on Tiesto's label, Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label, and collaborations with Dash Berlin on top of an internationally charting song "How You Love Me" featuring Bright Lights.
Well 3LAU goes back to his roots once again and delivers us the next chapter in his Dance Floor Filth series with Volume 4. The free bootleg mashup album features 8 huge tunes ready to shut down clubs and festivals across the globe. The songs follow his signature pattern of blending big names like Calvin Harris to Martin Garrix with newer acts like ZHU and Tchami with many including up to 6 tracks, all seamlessly blended giving the listener completely new sounding tracks. I don't think there's anyone that can do bootlegs better than 3LAU, he may have truly perfected the art. Listen below to the free album and for every download a dollar will be donated to Pencils Of Promise to help build a school. Enjoy!

We all know Diplo and Skrillex have something special on their hands by not only coming together as the in-demand supergroup Jack Ü, but releasing the projects lead track "Take Ü There" that has climbed up the dance charts rapidly.
The song has inspired LA producer duo Slander (responsible for remixes of Bastille's "Pompeii" and Seven Lions "Don't Leave") to create a festival ready edit that dabbles in both trap and electro worlds with an updated sped up drop, and some glitchy synth additions that fill this remix out nicely. This anthem comes as a free download courtesy of Slander's generosity, so stream the release below and grab a free copy! Enjoy

The elusive ZHU doesn't tend to do things as most would consider normal, instead he pushes the boundaries every step in his explosive new career. Just last week we reported on some Zhu posters popping up around NYC, and today have a confirmation on what they mean.
The two dates on the posters November 21st and 22nd are the dates marking ZHU's first ever series of headline live shows which will be known as THE NIGHTDAY EXPERIENCE taking place in NYC at still undisclosed locations.
We discover Zhu's love for fashion as the tickets will solely be available at the flagship high fashion store Opening Ceremony. Address is 35 Howard St. in the SoHo district. Tickets will be available this Thursday at 5:30pm EST. Ticket buyers will also receive a limited NIGHTDAY EP vinyl. (Only 2 tickets per person)
With how small we expect these shows to be, I wouldn't hesitate grabbing your own tickets as I'd expect a pretty fast sell out.
To celebrate the announcement, ZHU has also unveiled some impressive new visuals for the single "Paradise Awaits" from his NIGHTDAY EP. Watch the video below. Enjoy!

Logic drops yet another new single leading up to the release of his debut studio album "Under Pressure".

This shows us more depth of what we can expect from the rapper's debut album, which should be full of surprises.
