This past weekend, Boulder, Colorado natives Big Gigantic made their mark at the iconic Coachella Music & Arts Festival during the first of two scheduled performances. Both Dominic Lalli (Sax / DJ) and Jeremy Salken (Drums) performed their signature blend of live instrument powered electronic music to the festival setting like they do best. From the Sax solos to Dom amping the crowd up, the energy was not in short supply. The set list featured a mixture of the new tracks from their recent The Night Is Young album as well as old favorites and party inducing remixes including "I Need A Dolla" and "Can I Get A" amongst more. They even brought out the local Shadow Hills High School Marching Band to add some extra energy to some of the tracks. Watch the entire set in full and enjoy!

After performing the unreleased song "West Coast" in her set at Coachella this past weekend, Lana Del Rey has uploaded the full audio single online for our listening pleasure. This is actually the first single from her second artist album Ultraviolence, which is produced by Dan Auerback of The Black Keys. Having Dan on the album showcases a more matured Blues inspired Lana and leaves us anxiously wondering how the rest of the album will sound. Look out for more info in the coming weeks with a current tentative release date of May 18th.

Childish Gambino drops off an intriguing official music video for the next single "Sweatpants" ft. Problem from his latest album Because The Internet. The visuals follow Gambino on a continuous path of Donald meeting up at a diner over and over while more copies of himself fill the frame.
The video displays how as his life becomes continuously more revolved around himself, he becomes growingly less interested and excited about it. He further confirms this idea in his blog post that launched the release stating: "you can’t understand something totally and enjoy it at the same time, i think." – Donald. View the blog post with video and tour dates here.
Gambino Outraged At Music Video Release: Instead of the video getting released along with the Deep Web Tour blog post exactly how he had planned, his label Glassnote Recordings went ahead and released it without his consent, leading to him firing off a tirade of Tweets going as far as telling other labels to "please buy me out". View the outraged tweets below after the jump.

Coachella weekend has been filled with surprises thus far and legendary rapper Nas not only delivered an energized set, but possibly the biggest guest appearance of the weekend. Nas celebrated the occasion with a special tribute to one of the most iconic albums in hip-hop, playing his Illmatic album in full for it's 20th year anniversary.
If that wasn't enough on it's own, he participated in Coachella's spirit by bringing out a very very special surprise guest, fellow New York hip-hop icon Jay-Z (who he once had a huge feud with), to perform "Dead Presidents" and "Where I'm From". Nas snuck in a few other hits including "One Mic" and "Made You Look". To help end the set, he brought Diddy out for "Hate Me Now". All together it was easily one of the most entertaining hip-hop sets we have ever seen. Stream the entire performance below and enjoy!

"I F*cking Love My Life Right Now…"
The words echoed throughout a packed audience within the Sahara Tent at Coachella Music Festival as Skrillex, one of the top producer / DJs of our current electronic music generation, took the stage full of zest and sporting a brand new production rig for his one of a kind "mothership". Sensory overload was greeted with an engaging performance from the OWSLA kingpin as a combination of stunning visuals on display for the first time and tailored specifically for this set, coincided with the artists signature delivery of music spanning multiple genres. Yes, bass music was the main focal point of the performances as were tracks off Skrillex's recent debut artists album Recess, but the rawness and fearlessness to transition into hip-hop/rap, place an interlude featuring MGMT's "Kids", and having guest appearances from Dillon Francis and A$AP Rocky made the set as special for those in attendance or watching at home could have asked for. Stream the set below via SoundCloud or Youtube below and above all… Enjoy!
