It seems that the rather secretive Frank Ocean has just announced his much anticipated third studio album, along with its title. He just shared the above photo on his website (Which is now temporarily down due to traffic), and his tumblr.
He posted this with the following caption
"'I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.' #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY."
This sounds like we can expect his third album in July, and will be titled Boys Don't Cry. It also looks like there might be either mutliple parts to the release or alternate covers, or even an accompanying magazine like we see in the picture.
West coast EDM icon Kaskade who's known for keeping things more on the calm, melody filled side has just shown a new side. His newest original "Never Sleep Alone" incorporates some newer sounding inspirations from artists like Tchami and Oliver Heldens with some future house thumping bass drops. Of course he manages to stay true to his sound keeping the song full of bright melodies and colorful chords in his own signature way. You can listen to the full song below and pick up a copy through iTunes. Enjoy

New York based Prince Fox has quickly planted himself as an artist to watch out for over the past year by turning out nonstop remixes including Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" which ended up going viral, Florence + The Machine's "You've Got The Love", Kanye West's "All Of the Lights" and many more.
With TSIS having premiered most of his remixes up to this point, it was only right that we also premiere his debut original single "Wait Until Tomorrow" that will have you moving uncontrollably. Blending house, future bass, trap, indie and a splash of pop influence all smashed together is what adds up to make his own unique sound that sounds great. The vocals help complete the track and really tie it all together. Listen to the premiere of the song below and grab your free copy below.

Last year Aussie producers Yahtzel and LDRU combined forces to become the supergroup Carmada and TSIS premiered their debut single "Maybe" which was apart of their Realise EP which has already been followed up with live festival debuts foreshadowing their very massive year ahead of them. Over a million plays later on "Maybe" has led to the natural decision of releasing a monster remix EP around it and we have the exclusive of the very first one. Fellow Aussie rising forces Slumberjack and Elk Road have stepped up to the plate to offer an eerie future bass styled twist to the song with added horns, melodic synths and powerful drums to make things interesting. Stream the premiere below and you can pre-order for a release on April 16th through OWSLA along with the entire package also featuring Getter, Trollphace, Pegboard Nerds and more!

Flume made his way as one of the hottest acts to be globally watched out for as everything he touches turns to gold. As we patientally await details on his highly anticipated followup studio album, we are given a gift of a brand new remix to tide us over. Previously taking on Disclosure, Lorde, and Arcade Fire while flipping them all into viral remixes, it would made sense for Flume to take his stab at one of the most remixed artists in years.
He's taken on "Lay Me Down" from Sam Smith and completely remimagined the tune. Sampling the vocals, adding new signature wobbly syths and melodies, and bringing his emotion filled drops leaves us with another instant hit. Flume does it once again leaving us speechlessly in a daze waiting for whatever he his in store for us next. Enjoy!
Flume has also announced his world tour. You can see all the dates below after the jump:

To promote the release of his critically acclaimed new album To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar took to the streets of LA for an incredible late night surprise performance. Kendrick pulled an epic and unprecedented move by performing on the bed of a moving semi truck for his fans in LA as he leads a parade of people running behind.
The fans were chosen by Reebok and were led to believe they were testing out the new shoes, but then were surprised to see Kdot pull out of nowhere on the truck and proceeded to perform an entire concert, while moving. Now we have the HD quality visuals of this insane 50 minute performance where Kendrick was even joined by Thundercat. Sit back and watch this very unique experience.
RL Grime just will not stop. Still riding high off the success of his critically acclaimed debut studio album VOID, he even had time to turn out an epic remix with Salva on Travi$ Scott's "Skyfall". Well today he’s linked up with rising rapper Tory Lanez, who he previously collaborated with on “I-95”. RL provides a downtempo, minimalist production which is the perfect canvas for Tory to come in and light it up with his singing and rapping. His style continues to become more and more his very own with each and every track. This is the first song on Tory’s upcoming EP that is getting released through WEDIDIT. Listen below and enjoy!

International icon for all things bass music, Skrillex, made history this past weekend as he headlined Ultra Music Festival in Miami closing out the entire festival on the main stage. This was the very same slot that Swedish House Mafia played their very last show 2 years ago, which is a testament to the changing of times.
For such a massive slot, Skrillex obviously had to bring out some very special guests to make it a night to remember starting with his partner in crime Diplo joining for the entire set making it a Surprise Jack Ü performance, which makes sense since they are hot off the release of their long awaited debut collaborative album. He also brought out Kiesza, Kai, and CL to perform all their respective tracks live. It wouldn’t be a proper Miami party if none other than rapper and hip-hop mogul P. Diddy hadn’t been brought out, which he proceeded to MC the rest of the set. Then for the closing track, Skrillex and Diplo perform their single “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber for the first time ever live since it has been released with the accompaniment from Bieber himself. Regardless of his obvious lip synching, he does do a respectable robot dance and adds a final touch to the unforgettable performance. Sit back, go full screen and enjoy the entire iconic performance in full HD thanks to Skrillex and Ultra. Enjoy!
