Ultra Music Festival in Miami is a pinnacle electronic dance event every year, and the festival promoters are kings of building hype with their trailers and after movies. They have just released a brand new 2 minute video that features what sounds like a familiar new favorite artist. We hear Kygo’s signature upbeat melodies and extra smooth percussion elements that couldn’t be anyone but him.
Last year the festival featured his remix of Syn Cole's "Miami 82", so it is very fitting to debut a new song this year to the trailer for 2015.
They have labeled the song as "ID – ID", but we think it has to be Kygo with his unmistakable sound. Comment with your thoughts below!
UPDATE: So the song yesterday was in fact Kygo. The song is now available to hear in full via Spotify.
One of the next rappers to explode out of the unreal Chicago rap scene is Towkio having done a fair amount of work with both Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper. He is set to release an upcoming mixtape and just unleashed one of the hottest tracks “Involved”, produced by Montreal’s Kaytranada delivering an upbeat dance infused track. Vic Mensa also offers a featured verse that shines strong and is tied together by Towkio’s unique flow. Listen below and look out for a download soon. Enjoy!

The 2015 Grammys were filled with a variety of a high energy performances and entertaining laughs, but one of the highlights has to be Kanye West interrupting Beck accepting the Album of The Year award, beating out Beyoncé.
This pays an ode to when he stopped Taylor Swift from accepting the award for Best Female Video Of the Year in 2009 beating out Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" at the MTV 09' VMA's.
This of course is a joke with Kanye smiling the whole time and Beck even offering for him to speak on the mic, but either way is worth the hilarious laugh.
Also, even funnier is Jay-Z's horridly amused face from the crowd witnessing Kanye go on stage.
Australian native, and one half of Australian rising super duo Carmada, Yahtzel has surprised us with a brand new original just days before he sets out for his first North American tour. We first featured Yahtzel on his remix of Peking Duk's "High" and his collaboration with L D R U (before Carmada project) on "The Only One", but today might be one of his best yet. "If You Leave" is a relaxing glass of chilled out vibes with influence from fellow Aussie, Flume while still standing completely his own. The slowed track will have you repeating this one time and time again, so listen below and grab a free download. Enjoy
