While often a silent, no facial expression given figure, DJ Snake extraordinary rise to the top of dance music is a humbling one at best. The Paris born producer broke onto the radar in 2012 with the summertime anthem "Bird Machine," and has never look backed since. He even nabbed a Grammy nomination for his chart smashing single "Turn Down For What" with Lil' Jon among many other accolades this year.
As the world waits on the prominent figures next step, DJ Snake tops off his incredible year with an official music video for his "You Know You Like It" collaboration with UK vocalist AlunaGeorge. The visual direction focuses on an Ape (or, perhaps an orangutan… i'm unsure) who's depicted as a pusher of sorts. His seedy dealings are strung together via an engaging storyboard that coincides with the songs attractive production and lush vocals.

Today we have the latest from Pomo, the exciting producer out of Montreal, who is apart of the HW&W Records family (Kaytranada, Sweater Beats, Ta-Ku and more). We get our ears on one of his most impressive tracks all year, remixing UK duo AlunaGeorge's single "Supernatural". Drawing drum inspiration from label mate Kaytra and fusing these beats with a beefy bassline and catchy melodies we are left with an instant hit. Drawing influences of nu-disco, hip-hop, future bass and more it's impossible to comfortably throw this one in just one genre, which is what Pomo loves. This is stream only until the official release comes out along with the other remixes of the song. Enjoy!

We first heard Baauer's new single "One Touch" feat AlunaGeorge a couple of weeks ago when he first released the VIP version of the track. Today, the original comes to light but with a new face on the song, "No Flex Zone" rising rap duo Rae Sremmurd. "One Touch" packs some unique drums and seductive melodies that lay perfectly with AlunaGeorge and Rae's vocals to truly make this one of our favorite Baauer tracks to date.
Regarding working with AlunaGeorge, Baauer recently told the The Fader, "I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met… The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said 'you gotta give me something to work with' and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA Vloading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded real good. :D"
You will find this song on Baauer's upcoming EP "ß". "One Touch" also comes as a free download when you Pre-order your copy through iTunes available today.

The much anticipated Jack U duo that has kept us patiently (or impatiently) waiting for some material has unveiled a new track for us. Skrillex and Diplo are superstar producers who have teased their collaboration for some time now, and delivered their second track at Burning Man last week. This video incudes both Jack U songs that we've heard with the new one starting at aroung the 3:30 mark.
This new tune "To U" featuring vocals from AlunaGeorge melds the styles from both producers as each of their sounds come through individually, but their efforts work together to create a unique sound different from either of their typical solo releases. This new tune utilizes Rustie-style slashing synths alongside sexy, energetic female vocals.
There was a lot of buzz around Burning Man this past week including rumors that Skrillex and Diplo were booed off stage. Diplo was upset about these false rumors and released an extended tweet, part of which is below. Read Diplo's entire statement here.
…Everyone on stage had a fun moment when we played a few tunes as we were Just killing time while the next dj was setting up.. We weren't kicked off or booed .. Jus wrapped our set up with an inside joke … And of all the stories to come out after an amazing week… This is pretty tabloidish that's not what burningman is about.. Everything we did there was good fun and all the people that attended knows it..

The art of remixing Disclosure is alive and well in 2014 as the momentum from the UK duo's Grammy nominated debut album Settle continues to inspire producers / DJs from around the country to add various additions to the original tracks. Newly created LA based producer duo Hotel Garuda have stepped up to provide a stunning chill house remix of "White Noise" that will get you right in that summer state of mind. Substituting AlunaGeorge's sultry voice for UK native MNEK was a bold move that has paid off as the singer / songwriter smashes the lyrics into a new realm around a restructured bass line featuring a spine tingling summery saxophone sample of Klingande's "Punga". Stream the remix below and grab a free download on us! Enjoy

The smooth indie dance single “You Know You Like It” from UK based duo AlunaGeorge just got an incredibly well done trap / downtempo spirited remix from DJ Snake. He tastefully adds his own drums and snare rolls while leaving a lot of the original in tact. The result is a remix that I find myself unable to stop replaying. DJ Snake has let us stream this and will be updating on official release, which leads us to believe this might be official. Enjoy!
