UK native and electronic music pioneer Jon Gooch (otherwise known worldwide as Feed Me) much anticipated album Calamari Tuesday hit stores and iTunes this past Monday. Feed Me’s debut LP comes after months of speculation on the direction of his music after declaring a hiatus from DJing; a craft which he continually raised the bar with his unique style of music along with featuring a one of a kind audio/visual stage known as Teeth.
Having established himself predominantly in electro and dubstep, Feed Me’s direction throughout ‘Calamari Tuesday’ will leave listeners captivated by his ability to encompass a wide variety of genre’s within the same song.

GRiZ has delivered one of the biggest gifts we could ask for this Tuesday with the release of his highly anticipated Rebel Era album. This release follows up his previous Mad Liberation LP and might actually exceed the record as GRiZ continues to develop his signature blend of live Electro-Soul. Rebel Era features 11 songs that span from gritty bass bangers to funky groove filled jams with Grant (GRiZ) even playing guitar on some tracks. The record includes featured guests Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic as well as newcomer funk trio The Floozies. For being only 23 years old, GRiZ has the potential to be one of the greats in our music culture and Rebel Era will only build upon the success he’s already seen. You can stream Rebel Era in its entirety below or purchase it on iTunes next week, but we recommend picking up a free download from GRiZ’s website today. Also, don’t miss catching GRiZ live on his Rebel Era tour as he brings out his own light production for the very first time! Dates here.

Could one ever be tired of hearing new music that involves the one and only Skrillex and Alvin Risk? Within the last few days, the two OWSLA producers have captivated our attention with two fresh remixes of their “Try It Out” track. The “Neon Mix”started it all which was then followed by the bass heavy “Try Harder Mix”. Now the final installment of the series has been released in the form of the “Put ‘Em Up Mix”. This rendition features the title being chanted, chopped up, and distorted before Skrillex and Alvin Risk drop all types of mayhem. This could easily be consider the best remix of the bunch. We are still unsure of when the EP is set to be released, but we imagine it will be much sooner rather than later. Enjoy!

The Quack is Back folks! The legendary duo that conjured up hits like “Barbara Streisand”, “It’s You”, and “Big Bad Wolf” come back into our lives thanks to the magic of Pete Tong and his infamous Essential Mix series. Duck Sauce, a formidable partnership between A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, brought their talents to the radio this past Friday night over the course of two hours. This is what they had to say about the the mix:
”In the first hour of our Essential Mix we decided to share a bunch of unreleased demo’s; songs we tried shopping to George Michaels, Celine Dion, and Billy Joel but that were all declined. In the second hour we made a mix of songs that inspired us over the years and up to the present. A lot of the music in this mix comes from our secret crates and was bought on the black market. This mix takes you into the wacky world of duck mountain and will give you a glimpse of our upcoming album ‘Quack’ ”. ~ Duck Sauce
This mix takes you on a journey of disco treats, house jams, and electro heaters all while keeping a dance atmosphere the entire time. If this is an indication of what Duck Sauce’s new album will feature, than the release of “Quack” will be one to keep an eye out for heading into 2014!

While many of us were out and about enjoying the first night of the weekend, an unexpected exchange of disses took place over Twitter between two very unlikely sources. The second show of Pretty Lights massive fall tour promoting Derek’s successful “A Color Map of the Sun” album took place in St. Louis last night and featured Fools Gold Records hip-hop lyricist Danny Brown. Danny, who is running fresh off the release of his highly acclaimed “Old” album, took to Twitter promptly after performing with these tweets:
UPDATE: After doing some digging, we’ve heard that Danny was heckled throughout his set by Pretty Lights fans. He reacted by yelling and throwing his mic into the crowd after they were unresponsive throughout his performance.
As word spread about Danny’s comments, Pretty Lights took to his fans in the wee hours of the morning to share this:
These words apparently didn’t sit well with Danny who responded by saying this about tonights performance in Nashville:
Though we are unsure if Danny Brown has officially been pulled off of Pretty Light’s Nashville bill for tonight, Derek attempted to squash the beef early this morning:
This is a very unfortunate series of events for two artists we both really respect. Sometimes combining the electronic and hip-hop worlds just doesn’t align as planned. We wish the best to both artists.
