The undoubtedly loved Flume made a highly talked about appearance at Coachella Music & Art Festival this past weekend and did not disappoint. Although his set wasn't streamed in full like the The Glitch Mob, Nas or Big Gigantic, it was still filled with some unexpected surprises, one of which including a brand new remix of Lorde's "Tennis Court" captured by a live video. He chops up her smooth vocals while adding in layers of his signature booty shaking groove. Even though this is just a sample, a live one at that, I will place bets on this being one of the biggest remixes of the year. You can replay the video until we get news on an official stream. Enjoy!
UPDATE: The Coachella video was flagged for infringement, but here is a better video of the song being performanced at Flume's recent NYC show.

This past weekend, Boulder, Colorado natives Big Gigantic made their mark at the iconic Coachella Music & Arts Festival during the first of two scheduled performances. Both Dominic Lalli (Sax / DJ) and Jeremy Salken (Drums) performed their signature blend of live instrument powered electronic music to the festival setting like they do best. From the Sax solos to Dom amping the crowd up, the energy was not in short supply. The set list featured a mixture of the new tracks from their recent The Night Is Young album as well as old favorites and party inducing remixes including "I Need A Dolla" and "Can I Get A" amongst more. They even brought out the local Shadow Hills High School Marching Band to add some extra energy to some of the tracks. Watch the entire set in full and enjoy!

After performing the unreleased song "West Coast" in her set at Coachella this past weekend, Lana Del Rey has uploaded the full audio single online for our listening pleasure. This is actually the first single from her second artist album Ultraviolence, which is produced by Dan Auerback of The Black Keys. Having Dan on the album showcases a more matured Blues inspired Lana and leaves us anxiously wondering how the rest of the album will sound. Look out for more info in the coming weeks with a current tentative release date of May 18th.

Coachella weekend has been filled with surprises thus far and legendary rapper Nas not only delivered an energized set, but possibly the biggest guest appearance of the weekend. Nas celebrated the occasion with a special tribute to one of the most iconic albums in hip-hop, playing his Illmatic album in full for it's 20th year anniversary.
If that wasn't enough on it's own, he participated in Coachella's spirit by bringing out a very very special surprise guest, fellow New York hip-hop icon Jay-Z (who he once had a huge feud with), to perform "Dead Presidents" and "Where I'm From". Nas snuck in a few other hits including "One Mic" and "Made You Look". To help end the set, he brought Diddy out for "Hate Me Now". All together it was easily one of the most entertaining hip-hop sets we have ever seen. Stream the entire performance below and enjoy!

"I F*cking Love My Life Right Now…"
The words echoed throughout a packed audience within the Sahara Tent at Coachella Music Festival as Skrillex, one of the top producer / DJs of our current electronic music generation, took the stage full of zest and sporting a brand new production rig for his one of a kind "mothership". Sensory overload was greeted with an engaging performance from the OWSLA kingpin as a combination of stunning visuals on display for the first time and tailored specifically for this set, coincided with the artists signature delivery of music spanning multiple genres. Yes, bass music was the main focal point of the performances as were tracks off Skrillex's recent debut artists album Recess, but the rawness and fearlessness to transition into hip-hop/rap, place an interlude featuring MGMT's "Kids", and having guest appearances from Dillon Francis and A$AP Rocky made the set as special for those in attendance or watching at home could have asked for. Stream the set below via SoundCloud or Youtube below and above all… Enjoy!

The Glitch Mob made quite a scene earlier this year when they released their highly acclaimed new artist album Love Death Immortality, which managed to go #1 and please countless fans both old and new. It set them up perfectly to have a huge presence at festivals this summer and last night they made their mark at the iconic Indio Valley at Coachella Music Festival. They had one of the most exciting live performances, including an unique instrument known as the lemur to launch and alter elements in the set while also playing live drums for a great blend. This is all in accompanied by some incredible visuals to fully set it off. They play tracks from the new album along with old favorites for an amazing set. You can watch the entire performance below.
