Smoother than a babies bottom is the first thing that came to mind after hearing the newest original release from up and coming Montreal beat maker High Klassified. Though "Broken Elbows" may give people an initial impression of a hard hitting jam due to its title, the silky bass line foundation mixed with chill elements and R&B aesthetics that he is calling "Cloud Trap". Stream the tune below and grab a free download to go. Enjoy

"Latch" by UK garage / electronic duo Disclosure has certainly received it's fair share of remixes over the last year; we premiered a funky dubstep remix from Manic Focus some months back and a chilled out trap version from La'Reda. Yet through all of these remixes, their has never been quite a banger "anthem" styled remix of the infectious single… that is, until now. We are excited to introduce a brand new producer going by the name of Silverback who we believe has delivered the biggest remix of "Latch" thus-far. Though he has chosen to remain anonymous, Silverback has released music under a different moniker previously and hails from Montreal, Canada. Whoever he might be, the production on his debut track is through the roof and I wouldn't be surprised in the least if this remix turns out to be an official release. The song is a full fledged festival anthem consisting of dubstep section almost all the way through including melodic builds and brutal first drop; then out of nowhere we get an epic half-time trap styled second drop that will have you moving uncontrollably. If there's anything more like this up his sleeve it's safe to say Silverback is not a name we should be forgetting anytime soon. Stream this song below and grab a free download as a gift from Silverback to launch his new name. Enjoy!

The new song titled "Need This" that plays in the background for the video above is a "B-Side" from his recent Rebel Era album. The new single is just as incredible as anything on the album with some colossal bass swoops and soulful melodies.
This past fall, GRiZ turned heads by bringing his own custom production light rig for the first time with unbelievable success (As seen in the video above); shutting down packed venues from San Francisco to New York City on his "Rebel Era Tour". We hope you can make it out to at least one of these sure to be unforgettable shows; and read what Grant had to say about how the last tour impacted this new one:
"After seeing countless shows and finishing my first national headline tour I want to keep the show experience new and exciting by experimenting with different ways to present live music. I can't wait to get back out on the road to see you guys." -GRiZ

Armin van Buuren debuts a new song "Save my Night" in an interesting new drinking experiment video sponsored by Heineken. A club is taken over for 2 nights at the same location in Miami, Florida, with the first night having an unknown DJ, and the second night having Armin ban Buuren play an intimate set without anyone knowing it’s him. The total amount of beers being drank is recorded throughout the night by a special mechanism setup right by the bartenders tracking every single beer server throughout both nights. The first night with the unknown DJ playing, the crowd purchases over 1000 beers. The second night where the king himself Arming comes on, the count of beers served barely manages to break 600 almost half the amount from the night before. It is seriously surprising at how much more you can drink if there happens to be a DJ that is able to really pull you in their engaging live set.
It's also even more surprising, yet at the same time kind of cool that Heineken would actually take such a strong stance promoting the fact that when you are experiencing the best DJ, and having some of the best times, you might actually drink less of their product. A bold yet effective move showing that the company is not just concerned with selling the numbers but cares about safety, good times and experiences. Heineken has definitely made some strong strategic moves aligning themselves with lots of Electronic brands from festivals to DJs and it seems to be working quite well. What's your thoughts on an alcohol brand promoting something that shows less of their product being consumed. Follow the conversation #DMDS
