Australian DJ & singer Alison Wonderland has been carving her path in Australia for years, but in just the past 12 months has gained some huge global attention. She released her single "I Want U" last summer as part of the Calm Down EP, which was produced by Mad Decent beast Djemba Djemba. Over the past couple of months she has been building hype for her debut studio album Run. It was released in Australia last month, but now the US and rest of world can finally pick up a copy of this amazing body of work.
The giant list of collaborators on Run ranges all over spanning from Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips to Amsterdam producer GANZ, Norwegian rising star Lido, and even bringing in fellow Aussie artists Slumberjack, Djemba Djemba of course, and many more. Annie Mac has gone on to say that Alison has "The best party set (she's) heard in a long time" which is evident when listening to the full album.
This album has no fillers, packing endless amazing tracks and easily a few future hits. Her eclectic sound ranges from hip-hop, trap, jungle and so many more all poured together to make her very unique sound. We highly suggest listening to the entire album front to back as it's a seamless journey you won't regret. Also, all those attending Coachella this weekend, be sure not to miss her US festival debuts at The Sahara stage which is sure to be one for the books.
Bass tastemaker Skrillex has planted back to the top of the game in the past year having released his long awaited debut studio album Recess last year, which was followed up with his much hyped collaborative Jack U album alongside Diplo earlier this year. If having these two albums under his belt, and playing an endless amount of festivals and headline shows across the globe wasn't enough… he has another new solo album coming out soon!
Skrillex went out a fun night of bowling with Interntional Art of Bowling team while visiting Australia and happened to calmly reveal the MASSIVE news, that after his Jack U album (which is now released), he would be dropping a new solo Skrillex album. This huge piece of information being revealed in such a random video was discoverd thanks to a Skrillex fan thread.
We don't know much news, other than we should be expecting a full new Skrillex album, not even an EP, an album. Watch the video below to watch Sonny drop the bomb. If it doesn't immediatly start playing at the right part, skip ahead to 1:45.
With his last album featuring everyone from Fatman Scoop to Chance the Rapper, we can only dream of what collaborations are in store. Enjoy.

German producer / DJ Zedd has an insanely successful debut album Clarity, which even saw a deluxe edition re-release and has gone on to be one of the most successful electronic releases in years. He's kept very quite about details surrounding his much anticipated followup studio album, and today we get all the juicy details.
Zedd will be releasing his second studio album True Colors on May 19th.
We can expect to see a laundry list of collaborators and features like we saw on his last album with Ellie Goulding, Hayley Williams, Foxes, Bright Lights, Liz and more.
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.
