We all know Diplo and Skrillex have something special on their hands by not only coming together as the in-demand supergroup Jack Ü, but releasing the projects lead track "Take Ü There" that has climbed up the dance charts rapidly.
The song has inspired LA producer duo Slander (responsible for remixes of Bastille's "Pompeii" and Seven Lions "Don't Leave") to create a festival ready edit that dabbles in both trap and electro worlds with an updated sped up drop, and some glitchy synth additions that fill this remix out nicely. This anthem comes as a free download courtesy of Slander's generosity, so stream the release below and grab a free copy! Enjoy

The elusive ZHU doesn't tend to do things as most would consider normal, instead he pushes the boundaries every step in his explosive new career. Just last week we reported on some Zhu posters popping up around NYC, and today have a confirmation on what they mean.
The two dates on the posters November 21st and 22nd are the dates marking ZHU's first ever series of headline live shows which will be known as THE NIGHTDAY EXPERIENCE taking place in NYC at still undisclosed locations.
We discover Zhu's love for fashion as the tickets will solely be available at the flagship high fashion store Opening Ceremony. Address is 35 Howard St. in the SoHo district. Tickets will be available this Thursday at 5:30pm EST. Ticket buyers will also receive a limited NIGHTDAY EP vinyl. (Only 2 tickets per person)
With how small we expect these shows to be, I wouldn't hesitate grabbing your own tickets as I'd expect a pretty fast sell out.
To celebrate the announcement, ZHU has also unveiled some impressive new visuals for the single "Paradise Awaits" from his NIGHTDAY EP. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
