Genre blending and crafty innovations in sound design best describes the work of UK native and OWSLA / MTA Records producer Moody Good much anticipated self-titled artist album which hits shelves on June 2nd and 3rd in its respective regions. With the whole album available to stream on SoundCloud now before the release, we've dissected the robust 15 track offering which showcases a vast collection of forward think breaks, gritty bass influxes, UK garage stylings, and transitions between tranquil and savage synth patterns featured throughout.
My personal favorites are the collaborations with two highly coveted songstresses, Eryn Allen Kane on "Musicbx" and Haleighblu on "Living Off The High" & "Bubbles", where the chill bass instrumentals allow the ladies to flow some sultry R&B soaked lyrics over the production. From start to finish the album takes takes less an hour to digest, but within that minute amount of time the beauty of Moody Goods meticulous perfection in each song is apparent and inspiring with this solo endeavor from his previous days as 1/2 of 16bit proving to be fruitful. Stream and pre-order the release below, but above all… Enjoy

This is the big one folks! While visiting Toronto for a stop on the The Mothership Tour, Dillon Francis and Skrillex meet up with deadmau5 for the longest "Coffee Run" to date with the episode clocking in at an actual feature film length (Over an hour and a half!). With such a good amount of time recorded, a whole lot of comical conversation took place amongst some reportable information that will peak the interest of many. deadmau5 talks about hitting the road for a tour in 2015 (though we hope this takes place closer to the end of this year), Skrillex and Dillon have collaborated on two tracks thus-far while on tour, Skrillex is finishing one release with What So Not (guessing with just Emoh Instead and not Flume), and a Skrillex x Milo & Otis joint venture has at least been started. Other highlights include deadmau5 trying to pass off as Bob Saget around the 38 minute mark, the three producers rocking out to Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades" (50:47), and the constant verbal distain for Toronto traffic. Sit back and enjoy the video below!
