Super-producer Skrillex has been known to work with some incredible people such as Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber and many many more. Today we have news that Sonny is adding to his collab repertoire Rage Against The Machine guitar player Tom Morello and Jay Z-signed artist Jahlil Beats. A picture just surfaced moments ago without many details but we know this could only lead to something HUGE. Seems like Tom Morello is really branching out into the electronic world after a picture of him and Bassnectar in the studio popped up last month as well. We are more than excited to see what comes of these collaborations. We will keep you posted as more info rolls in.
Rising superstar Kygo is taking the dance world by storm one release and mainstage festival play at a time. Well before his massive performance at Coachella yesterday, Kygo announced on his Facebook page that he'd be throwing out 20 special usb sticks in the crowd that would hold a surprise. That surprised ended up being his collab with Dillon Francis titled "Coming Over," and features vocals from James Hershey.

Back in November we posted a video of Flying Lotus dropping a version of “Eyes Above” with a ferocious verse from Kendrick Lamar during one of Flylo's live sets, and now we get to hear a longer clip of the highly anticipated collaboration as it was premiered in Flying Lotus's special To Pimp A Butterfly edition of his radio show.
These two L.A. artists make magic happen whenever they team up, likd we've seen on “Never Catch Me” off FlyLo's You’re Dead and “Wesley’s Theory” off Kendrick's To Pimp A Buttlerfly. There is actually an entire mixtape worth of collaborative material between these two after Flylo sent Kendrick a folder of music for TPAB, and it looks like we are starting to see some of these all sta collaborations from these trendsetters. Enjoy!

From his extra heavy music choice, to his energy filled sets and metal like hair and headbanging, Bassnectar is without a doubt the metalhead rock figure within the electronic world. This makes this newest bit of news all the more fitting as Bassnectar just shared a photo of himself with Tom Morello of iconic rock metal band Rage Against The Machine in the studio with the caption:
"In the studio with Tom Morello, raging against machines!!!"
He has played various bass infused metal bootlegs over the years, even including a remix of Rage's "Killing In The Name Of" in his live sets, so this is quite a natural collaboration. As we sit and patiently wait for whatever magic the two have cooked up you can get an idea of what it might sound like by listening to Bassnectar's remix of "Seek & Destroy" by Metallica below.
Big Sean, Drake and Kanye West all link up for the video for “Blessings” which is taken from Sean’s recent studio album Dark Sky Paradise.

Watch the powerful video below. Enjoy!

Climbing Toronto / Austin rapper Tory Lanez has been on our radar for years now and has not been short on releases the past few months including songs "Diego" and "Mama Told Me" produced by Ryan Hemsworth. Today Tory has teamed up with London based production duo Snakehips for a very unexpected but incredible collaboration titled "Dímelo". Snakehips step out of the box on this one and lay down a synth-fueled, 808-heavy, hip-hop meets R&B beat which Tory proceeds to step up and destroy bouncing from singing and rapping seamlessly. The song was made in one night as part of the "Songs From Scratch & Yours Truly" campaign, which spawned tracks like the GoldLink x Chet Faker heater last year. Stream the full song below and we will keep you posted on a download. Enjoy
