Recently the creator of Minecraft and active EDM enthusiast Markus Persson has become a multi billionaire and has been spending his money in some pretty amazing ways. Just earlier this year he bought one of the most outrageous houses in LA and had a house party with Skrillex, Diplo and many others.
Well today we bring you his latest shenanigan, a 20,000 person private party thrown in the middle of Los Angels Memorial Coliseum, under a massive pitched up tent where some of the most epic visuals were projected onto the entire ceiling. He brought out DJ icons Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake and even rappers Rae Srremmurd. He did this to celebrate E3, which for those outside of the gaming world is the biggest trade show of the year in gaming with all the newest products getting debuted (Think of it as the SXSW of the gaming world).
Watch below and see a taste of the absolutely insane visuals and hear some unreleased music.

A-Trak’s Fools Gold label has announced Falcons as the newest member on their roster, and he’ll release his debut Terra EP with the Brooklyn label on 7/17. Falcons' first track on the label is titled “Aquafina” and features GoldLink, who is poised for a big year following his feature as an XXL Freshman, alongside up and coming rapper Chaz French.
The eclectic producer has linked up with Goldlink previously on "Vroom", which heavily samples Missy Elliot and was a strong start to the year for both artists. This new club-ready track brings layers upon layers of chill trap elements; with wavering synths and an array of bouncing chimes underlaying the groovy verses and catchy hook. Stream the full song below and pre-order the EP below.

LA producer RL Grime is back on our radar. This time he has taken on his own song "Scylla", from his Vold album, and given it the VIP treatment it was looking for. He adds some screaming samples and gives the drop a new flavor but keeps most of the elements from the original in place. This release coincides with RL's announcement that he is playing Central Park in NYC with Young Thug and Mr. Carmack on , which is guaranteed to be a massive show. You can stream the full song and grab a free download below, and snag tickets for the event here.

Bassnectar has just dropped the first 5 tracks from his upcoming “Into The Sun” album, which will be released June 30th via his own music label, Amorphous. In an interview with Rolling Stone Lorin explains "I think of this as a mixtape…like a mixtape you'd make for a lover or friend before they leave on a road trip or something.” The laid back categorization of the album gives the producer much more freedom. As Lorin says he can “under promise and over deliver” and focus on giving the album an “element of sonic euphoria."
In the release Nectar drops off a remix of The Naked and Famous "No Way", where he beefs up song with loads of bass conveying the signature Bassnectar flare. He also gives us a remix of his longtime friend Dorfex Bos self-titled single which is an ode to Lorin’s roots. Lorin also lets us hear three upcoming original songs, the title track “Into The Sun”, “Speakerbox” featuring Lafa Taylor, and a collaboration with Santa Cruz producer G Jones on "The Mystery Spot" which is a shout out to San Francisco
Lorin also confirms with Rolling Stone the collaboration between himself and rock legend Tom Morello will be released following “Into The Sun”. There will also be a free mixtape alteration to coincide with “Into The Sun’s” release.

This new track “Abrasive” is the second release off their forthcoming album Magnifique, which is their first album in five years and will be released on 7/17.
They unleashed this new tune as a music video featuring intriguing animation using over 4,000 black and white drawings by Ratatat’s Evan Mast to create a truly unique visual element to go along with this new track. “Abrasive” brings smooth guitar licks and silky grooves as their signature synthesizer lays beneath to make for a harmonious sound that has us eagerly awaiting the album.

The very exciting Philadelphia-based producer Louis Futon has been making a name for himself with originals like his self-titled EP earlier this year, and remixes of G-Eazy, Odesza, Phony Ppl and more. Just a few weeks back the producer showed a completely new side to his music with "Oakland Tho", which showcased a heavier production. Today, we hear another step into a more diverse heavy side of the producer's style. The "Tree / Impala" EP is a two track release that was just put out through Plastician's Terrorrythm label, who just released the impressive GANZ record last month.
"Tree" is the type of song that makes you want to jump around and break things, in the best way possible. It is an almost eerie, truly epic anthem of a song, packing screeching high pitched synths and beastly drums for a song that can only be played loud. "Impala" is a more melodic track, with fresh buildups and party starting drops. Both songs are now available as a free download. Stream and grab a copy below. Enjoy!

We hear infectious buildups, pitched-up female vocals, and drops that will have you moving. You can listen to the premiere of the full stream below and pick up your copy through Spinnin . Enjoy!
