Whether it's a new track or a music video serving as a public service announcement, everything Diplo touches seems to turn to gold. Heavyweight producers Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ teamed up with Diplo alongside Waka Flocka Flame on "Techno" last month, and now we get the visual interpretation of this tune. This dark video depicts the path drugs take from the source to the end user ultimately dying as a direct result from these drugs. With the amount of drug-related casualties that have been happening at music festivals and shows over the past couple years, this video serves as a P.S.A. to all music fans as the video ends with "Drugs Are Not Worth The Risk" displayed at the end of the video.

Larger-than-life producer Dillon Francis is an incredibly busy man. When this eccentric DJ isn't hard at work on his forthcoming album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, he is usually entertaining the world with his sold out performances and ridiculously hilarious Instagram videos. This tune serves as a re-mastered version of the popular track "Master Blaster," and brings us a more complete, rich sound. In Dillon's words: "“IN MASTA BLASTA 2.0" I CHANGED THE KICK PATTERN TO 4×4 AND IN MY OPINION BEEFED IT UP WAAAAY MORE.” Stream the song below and grab a free download thanks to Dillon. Enjoy

With acts like Australian producer Thomas Jack in this world, we will never escape the summer-time vibes even if colder temperatures are upon us!

So when Tom played his US return show at Webster Hall this past weekend, he closed out the show by doing the unthinkable and taking his shoe off and drinking a beer out of it. Properly called a "Shoey", it looks like this might be something we can expect from ole Tom when he hits a city near you.
The enigmatic producer ZHU who we've reported about since his unreal Outkast cover / mashup "Moves Like Ms. Jackson" sweet the electronic music world has finally moved into the live performance realm, playing his first show ever this past weekend down in Australia at Listen Out Festival. We have our hands on a video shot by a fan attending the festival who managed to catch the impressive live setup. It appears that he has a screen with a projection covering the entire stage, with a custom Z shaped DJ booth and lights behind him. The fan who recorded the video said you could see his face and silhouette, which added a level of personality, yet kept things very under wraps in typical ZHU-like fashion.
US Fans: Also we have some exciting news for all our US fans, ZHU will be bringing over his live show to America for the first time playing a huge set at HARD's "Day of the Dead" festival. More details below.

The talented duo who have become electro house icons, yet for this new single "Boss Mode" has them stepping outside of what you would expect and has them dabbling with trap styles.

Grandtheft continues his non stop rise with another anthem quality remix, following up the recent Drake "0-100" bootleg we premiered and the collaborative remix with Diplo on Calvin Harris' "Summer" among others. Today he is enlisted to take on T.I. and Iggy Azalea's song "No Mediocre" and he strips the song down and brings it back up in a deadly way. From the 808's to the synths, this song is a party starter if I have ever heard one. Listen below to the song and look out for an official release coming soon. Enjoy!
