The highly anticipated collaboration between Chicago Hip Hop moguls Kanye West and Vic Mensa has finally seen the light of day. This new track “U Mad” was performed live by the two MCs previously and they actually premiered the finished studio track in Chicago during a DJ set. Produced by Vic's fellow SAVEMONEY member Smoko Ono, this song is surely Vic's biggest release yet. The two previously collaborated on Kanye’s “Wolves,” and this time it’s Vic’s turn to have a Kanye verse on his track.

One of the largest touring electronic shows in the world is Life In Color, the outrageous paint party that has brought just about every DJ to their parties ranging from Diplo to Hardwell to Adventure Club to R3hab and much more. They are continuing their tradition of having an annual anthem for their festival with past years recruiting Adventure Club, R3hab, David Solano and this year they have chosen Borgeous to step up to the plate. Borgeous teams up with David Solano who has been on the past two years anthems for a high energy party starter that blends progressive house and big room. Borgeous brings his signature infectious melodies and paves way for some relentless big room drops to get you moving. You can listen to the premiere of the song below and pick up your copy on Beatport April 13th. Enjoy!

Back in November we posted a video of Flying Lotus dropping a version of “Eyes Above” with a ferocious verse from Kendrick Lamar during one of Flylo's live sets, and now we get to hear a longer clip of the highly anticipated collaboration as it was premiered in Flying Lotus's special To Pimp A Butterfly edition of his radio show.
These two L.A. artists make magic happen whenever they team up, likd we've seen on “Never Catch Me” off FlyLo's You’re Dead and “Wesley’s Theory” off Kendrick's To Pimp A Buttlerfly. There is actually an entire mixtape worth of collaborative material between these two after Flylo sent Kendrick a folder of music for TPAB, and it looks like we are starting to see some of these all sta collaborations from these trendsetters. Enjoy!

Australian DJ & singer Alison Wonderland has been carving her path in Australia for years, but in just the past 12 months has gained some huge global attention. She released her single "I Want U" last summer as part of the Calm Down EP, which was produced by Mad Decent beast Djemba Djemba. Over the past couple of months she has been building hype for her debut studio album Run. It was released in Australia last month, but now the US and rest of world can finally pick up a copy of this amazing body of work.
The giant list of collaborators on Run ranges all over spanning from Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips to Amsterdam producer GANZ, Norwegian rising star Lido, and even bringing in fellow Aussie artists Slumberjack, Djemba Djemba of course, and many more. Annie Mac has gone on to say that Alison has "The best party set (she's) heard in a long time" which is evident when listening to the full album.
This album has no fillers, packing endless amazing tracks and easily a few future hits. Her eclectic sound ranges from hip-hop, trap, jungle and so many more all poured together to make her very unique sound. We highly suggest listening to the entire album front to back as it's a seamless journey you won't regret. Also, all those attending Coachella this weekend, be sure not to miss her US festival debuts at The Sahara stage which is sure to be one for the books.
Swedish producer Tobtok has become one of the latest Swedish acts to watch out for, and today we have the latest from him. Fresh off his TSIS premiered remix of Zak Water's "Out Of My Head," we get yet another disco anthem from him. This time taking on Russian producers Hard Rock Sofa and Skidka's popular progressive house song "Arms Around Me." Tobtok has completely reworked the song by adding new piano lines, punchy drums and even throws some guitar solos in there to allow the vocals to sit just perfect. This song is full of poolside vibes and I'd expect to hear it sneak it's way in quite a few sets this year. Stream the premiere of the full song below and we will keep you posted on a release. Enjoy

German producer Etnik is one of the Techno forces to break outside of the Techno die hards thanks to people like Skrillex and his OWSLA label supporting him. He released a massive single "Unclassified" last year and has been rolling out the "Unclassified" Remix EP, and we have a premiere of the latest track. Sydney based Wax Motif steps up to the plate and delivers a fresh, gritty G-House remix of the song. This is a song that screams to be played at an extra sweaty house after party. This comes fresh off the release of Wax Motif's exciting original single "Since I Left You." Stream the full song below and you can now pick up the full remix EP through OWSLA. Enjoy!

Bass tastemaker Skrillex has planted back to the top of the game in the past year having released his long awaited debut studio album Recess last year, which was followed up with his much hyped collaborative Jack U album alongside Diplo earlier this year. If having these two albums under his belt, and playing an endless amount of festivals and headline shows across the globe wasn't enough… he has another new solo album coming out soon!
Skrillex went out a fun night of bowling with Interntional Art of Bowling team while visiting Australia and happened to calmly reveal the MASSIVE news, that after his Jack U album (which is now released), he would be dropping a new solo Skrillex album. This huge piece of information being revealed in such a random video was discoverd thanks to a Skrillex fan thread.
We don't know much news, other than we should be expecting a full new Skrillex album, not even an EP, an album. Watch the video below to watch Sonny drop the bomb. If it doesn't immediatly start playing at the right part, skip ahead to 1:45.
With his last album featuring everyone from Fatman Scoop to Chance the Rapper, we can only dream of what collaborations are in store. Enjoy.

A$AP Rocky continues to slowly release tracks from his upcoming studio album A.L.L.A. with no release date set yet. We've already heard "Multiply" and "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2" and today we get the latest.
"M's" which just surfaced on an unknown soundcloud account seems to be the latest apparent leak from the forthcoming album. We hear some standard mellow yet trapped out production which is the perfect background for A$AP to deliver a hot chorus and verses. The fact this song has a "2 Chainz" sample leaves us wondering if 2 Chainz will make an appearance on this album, or if this is an unfinished cut of the track. Listen and share your thoughts below. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Rocky confirmed this is not a single, but just a fun song to enjoy. "M'S IS NOT A SINGLE. SHUT UP N HAVE FUN DAMNIT"

The beat master, Montreal based Kaytranada has a knack for creating the perfect beat for the right rapper as we recently saw with "Drive Me Crazy" featuring Vic Mensa. Well today he links up with hip-hop legend Freddie Gibbs for a brand new song "My Dope house." Kay provides a deep punching baseline with some minimalistic synth additions which provides the perfect soundtrack for Gibbs to deliver some solid verses and unexpectedly sing the chorus. Switching up his flows throughout his verses, Gangsta Gibbs gives us one of his most versatile songs to date. This song will be available on a limited 7 inch vinyl along with Spotify and iTunes next month. You can listen to the full song below. Enjoy!
