TC-Get-Down-Low-Silverback

The release of UK producer TC bass fueled party starter “Get Down Low” caused outbreaks of chaos to unfold at festivals and clubs across the globe as acts like Skrillex, Zeds Dead, Flux Pavilion, Excision and more rinsed the single in their sets. Now the track receives a new twist thanks to emerging mysterious Montreal producer Silverback, who is no stranger to our site having covered his dubstep fueled remixes of Disclosure’s “Latch” and Pegboard Nerds "Bassline Kickin". Placing a beastly baseline, punchy electro synths, and revamping the drops has brought new life into the original while showcasing a different side from Silverback. Listen below to the web premiere stream and you can pick up your copy on OWSLA's Beatport Decade compilation and UKF’s brand new Bass Culture 3 compilation out now on iTunes. Enjoy

Breakout Norwegian superstar producer and DJ Kygo has blossomed before our very eyes in 2014 including an international album deal with Sony / Ultra, every show on his headlining US tour selling out, and some unreal collaborations brewing. 

The young artist has just secured one of his biggest moments yet, a main stage slot at the 2nd annual TomorrowWorld next week, filling in for international powerhouse producer Avicii. This comes after Avicii was forced to cancel all future dates due to health concerns leaving TomorrowWorld fans curious on who would fill the slot.

Kygo is confirmed to be playing TomorrowWorld on Friday, September 26th from 6:15 – 7:15pm on the Main Stage. This is a set you can't afford to miss if you're making the trip to Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia for summers last noteworthy music festival.

This is quite the upgrade for everyone who tends to hang around the main stage and might not be aware of Kygo's unique brand of Tropical House vibes. You won't find any big room or progressive house builds here, just pure summer-time bliss like the Diplo & Friends mix featured below that Kygo created this year.

With the unreal momentum Kygo has going for him right now, what could possibly be next?

Also his newest North American Endless Summer Tour is kicking off at the end of the month with only a couple dates with any tickets remaining.

The supergroup comprising of Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers was bound to come together sooner or later. Both of these rap groups come out of the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, and rep the Beast Coast movement alongside Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era collective.

The groups have joined forces as the 5 man super group Clockwork Indigo and have dropped off their first song “Butterfly Effect”. Production from Eric Arc Elliot evokes the perfect eerie vibes as a shrill, crackly loop sets the tone on the seven-minute beat as the five rappers trade some unruly verses.
