He isn't just friends with the dog, but has gone even further and formed a collaborative music relation. Watch the documentary as we see Tom and Manny play around, work in the studio, take pictures with fans and more.

Today we have something exciting from the trend setting electro/techno icon Boys Noize with the premiere of his "Strictly Raw Vol 1" nine track EP. The release celebrates 10 years of his label Boysnoize Records, featuring collaborations with Tiga, T.E.E.D, Pilo and more. This EP showcases many different sounds from BN while sticking to his raw, extra gritty roots. Here is some words from BN on the EP:
"The idea of the Strictly Raw Vol 1. release is to take 1 drumachine + 1 or 2 synths and make a track with it. Over the last years friends came in and out of my studio and sometimes we end up jaming on my machines. Since it’s #BNR10YR I wanted to collect the good ones and put them all together and there is some serious magic going on :) As a DJ you always look out for these timeless house or techno music and here are 8 tracks that go from breaks to techno to acid to classic house, all analog, all strictly raw !!" - Alex Ridha

Recently the creator of Minecraft and active EDM enthusiast Markus Persson has become a multi billionaire and has been spending his money in some pretty amazing ways. Just earlier this year he bought one of the most outrageous houses in LA and had a house party with Skrillex, Diplo and many others.
Well today we bring you his latest shenanigan, a 20,000 person private party thrown in the middle of Los Angels Memorial Coliseum, under a massive pitched up tent where some of the most epic visuals were projected onto the entire ceiling. He brought out DJ icons Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake and even rappers Rae Srremmurd. He did this to celebrate E3, which for those outside of the gaming world is the biggest trade show of the year in gaming with all the newest products getting debuted (Think of it as the SXSW of the gaming world).
Watch below and see a taste of the absolutely insane visuals and hear some unreleased music.
