Easily one of the most enjoyable festivals of this past year was Buku Music & Art Project which took place in New Orleans last march. The festival had an intimate vibe being under 10,0000 people, and took place right on the water at Mardi Gras World, the famed warehouse / shipyard that all of the insane Mardi Gras floats get built at year round. The uniquely set festival also boasted a jaw dropping lineup which featured Skrillex, Wiz Khalifa, Avicii, Diplo, Big Gigantic, Porter Robinson, Big K.R.I.T., and Wolgang Gartner among others. With so many of the aritsts from last years lineup exploding in size, I coudln’t help but wonder how they could possibly match the lineup.. Well look below and you will see they more then matched it, it might be even better! The festival will be returning to New Orleans in 2013 for the weekend of March 8th and March 9th. We are excited to be partnering up with Buku again for 2013! Tickets go on sale for Buku 2013 this Friday, December 7 at 11:00 a.m. CST.

Calvin Harris – Sweet Nothing ft. Florence Welch (Diplo & Grandtheft Remix) : Must Hear Official Trap RemixPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: Calvin Harris, Diplo, Florence Welch, Grandtheft, Remix, Trap, Trap Music, Trap Remix
A few weeks back, we got the radio rip of the simply massive official trap remix to “Sweet Love” by Calvin Harris featuring the vocals of Florence Welch (from Florence + the Machine). Well today we get the full thing, which is now on sale on the official full length deluxe edition of Calvin Harris’s recent 18 Months available for purchase through Amazon here. Diplo & Grandtheft teamed up to create trap gold with this, taking all the best parts of the original and smashing full of fresh trap energy, leaving us with one of the biggest trap anthems of 2012. I think I might like this track as much as the original, which is definitely saying a lot. Sit back, let the trap spirit take you away. Enjoy!

Internationally recognized electronic aritst Calvin Harris has been hard at work on his biggest album to date 18 Months. One of the tracks I was looking forward to most was a monstrous collaboration with Dillon Francis and English rapper Dizzie Rascal on the track “Here 2 China”. The track takes Dillon’s funky hard hitting edge, and Calvin Harris’ smooth mass appeal and comes out with bass heavy BANGER, ready to destroy sound systems across the world. I really hope to see some more future Calvin Harris / Dillon Francis aka Calvin Francis work in the future. Enjoy.
