Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 8.59.21 AM

Joey Bada$$ is the visionary bringing back that no bullshit, 90's styled hip-hop that we can't get enough and adds another notch in his belt today. He's linked up with rap legend Freddie Gibbs for the brand new track "Carry On" produced by fellow hip-hop legend Statik Selektah. The jazz inspired production is the perfect background for Joey and Freddie to deliver some unreal verses. The video matches the vibe of the song and has some simple shots of the 3 of them going in while in the middle of an unknown park. This track is on Staik Selektah's newly released album What Goes Around.  Enjoy!

My eyes could hardly believe seeing a brand new release from game changing French techno / electro artist and Kanye West collaborator Gesaffelstein. We haven't heard much from the breakout producer since delivering his debut album Aleph which made waves throughout the music community last year and today, he delivers the final artists comissioned remix from highly acclaimed indie-rock band Phoenix's recent album Bankrupt!. In true Gesaffelstein fashion, he layers in some eerie aesthetics into the album titled single "Bankrupt" that I can only describe as hauntingly beautiful; the synth kick pattern and synth work are one a whole new level of design and coincide perfectly with the original lyrics. This is surprisingly being given out as a free digital downloaded, so take a listen below and add this to your music library today! Enjoy

The genius contained within breakout act ZHU's delightfully cleaver The NightDay EP continues to inspire producers from around the world to add their creative techniques, with Australian native and fellow producer Just A Gent latching on to the lead single "Superfriends" in quite the pleasant way.

This exclusive premiere is made available for streaming purposes only for now, so listen below and stay tuned for more music from Just A Gent soon! Enjoy

artworks-000087912770-vt5o2n-t500x500

We've watched the meteoric rise of Montreal based producer / DJ SNAILS as he unleashes a relentless stream of essential bass anthems over the past year from his chart topping collab with Antiserum on "Wild", to the recent "Slugz", and collab with Botnek on "KRMT" among many others. Now Snails has teamed up with Atlanta-native heRobust for a lethal release that see's the two producers stepping outside of their roots to deliver one of the hottest  big room / electro house anthems we have heard all year. "Pump This" has received play out by the likes of Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake, Dillon Francis and even electronic music king Tiesto! The drop builds some unreal suspense before hitting you in the face with some frenzy inducing sirens. "Big Room Barf" is what the artists are calling this epic tune and we feel it fits quite nicely. I'm excited to premiere the stream of the song below and you can listen in full before picking up your own copy available now via Skrillex's OWSLA record label. Enjoy!

Chicago's very own Flosstradmaus are set to give back to the fans and people that have supported their "go harder than hard" mentality since the days of playing low-key clubs to headlining major music festivals such as Coachella, Hard Summer, and Ultra Music Festival. The guys behind the well known trap movement are embarking on new HDYNATION tour that will kick off in their hometown on Nov 8th at UIC Pavilion and travel to 20 cities with opening support form energetic Miami producer duo GTA and Curtis Willaims w/ Two-9! 

The announcement comes with a look back at Flosstradamus's previous IRL Tour via a behind-the-scenes video showcasing candid interviews with the duo and their fans along with tour footage and features their recent chilled out single "Rebound". The main element that sets Flosstradamus apart from many acts is that they've created and fostered an actual community underneath the title HDYNATION, which brings HDYBYZ and HDYGRLZ from all walks of life together to share music and attend live events while sporting the highly sought after merchandise that Curt and Josh have developed in an in-house, grassroots manner. As you can see from the video below, the guys are truly humble and thankful for the opportunities that have come their way and this new tour will bring about a stronger connection between fans new and old! Pre-sale tickets are available now and you can expect shows to sell out leading up to the first date, so don't snooze on the early advantage. Enjoy
