Justin Blau aka 3LAU continues his global rise with his most exciting music video yet coinciding with one of his biggest singles to date.
After breaking into new territory with his highly successful single "How You Love Me" earlier this year, Justin releases a harder hitting followup single. We first heard a preview of “We Came to Bang” featuring Luciana in a unique fashion when Tiesto released a bootleg of the song with vocals from Bloodhouse Gang’s “Bad Touch” earlier this summer.
Today, along with the release of the song we get the official music video which is one of Justin’s most adventurous moves to date. The video tells a very gruesome story of a mascot fight club. Cheerleaders surround mascots fighting to the death, and we see 3LAU playing one of them. Some of the mascots wear slave-like necklaces that explode at the will of the cheerleaders. The video ends with a cliff hanger, as Justin is given one of the necklaces by the cheerleaders. Watch the premiere of the video below and you can pick up your copy of the song out now through Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label. Enjoy!

3LAU is someone we have been promoting since his early bootleg mashup days, sponsoring his first ever "Dance Floor Filth Volume 1" a couple of years back which jump started his entire career. He has grown far past mashups with some very successful originals on Tiesto's label, Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label, and collaborations with Dash Berlin on top of an internationally charting song "How You Love Me" featuring Bright Lights.
Well 3LAU goes back to his roots once again and delivers us the next chapter in his Dance Floor Filth series with Volume 4. The free bootleg mashup album features 8 huge tunes ready to shut down clubs and festivals across the globe. The songs follow his signature pattern of blending big names like Calvin Harris to Martin Garrix with newer acts like ZHU and Tchami with many including up to 6 tracks, all seamlessly blended giving the listener completely new sounding tracks. I don't think there's anyone that can do bootlegs better than 3LAU, he may have truly perfected the art. Listen below to the free album and for every download a dollar will be donated to Pencils Of Promise to help build a school. Enjoy!

Some of you may know the late 90's rave anthem "Zombie Nation" by Kernkraft which has been a rave staple for years getting remixed in every genre to make it current. Well Montreal based house duo Paris & Simo have brought the track up to speed with a re-boot approriately titled "Zombie", that has been remixed by 3LAU, which he debuted at this year's TomorrowWorld. The infectious melody shines through with newly added buildups and relentless drops leaving us with a revamped certified rave anthem.
You will be able to grab the free download of this song when it is released with the rest of the newly announced Dance Floor Filth Volume 4 free bootleg album set to release October 13th. Enjoy
