Well today we bring news that Mad Decent is set to release a full 6th Gear Remix EP, and we have the first one available for you now. Frequent collaborator GTA have stepped up to the plate completely flipping the song upside down leaving us with a certified rave anthem full of trap and electro styles.

One of the leading tastemakers in the electronic world, Diplo, continues to prove his forward thinking abilities every week with his Diplo and Friends radio show that showcases upcoming acts who deserve a spotlight. 2014 consisted of pivotal mixes from exploding acts like Kygo, Lido, Sweater Beats, Wave Racer, Big Gigantic, Falcons, Keys N Krates, Paper Diamond, and Hudson Mohawke's "Hip-Hop Mix" among others.
Well Diplo has started 2015 off properly by providing this year's first personal edition of his show with a brand new 2 hour mix, and this one is special. As BBC 1xtra tweeted it's time for Diplo "to let you know what everyone else will be playing in 6 months time…".
We hear Jack U and Major Lazer songs mixed in with a non stop barrage of twerk ready edits and remixes with some unreleased gems sprinkled throughout. Full track-list below.

Tracklist after the jump:
Unfinished demos for Madonna's latest album got leaked a few weeks back, but didn't stop the artists' team from jumping heavy into the promotion which continues today with the first official remix from the album's lead single "Living For Love" that was produced by Diplo and Djemba Djemba. The first remix is a club edit, and is from frequent Diplo collaborator and Mad Decent / Team Supreme family member Djemba Djemba. The song as Djemba says is a "club edit on the original song (we) wrote". The vocals shine bright with a new extra fresh house flavor to it, giving DJs the perfect new cut. Listen below and stay tuned for an official release. Enjoy!

LA based producer and TSIS favorite Jauz has been on a roll this year with countless releases including "Feel The Volume", "Miami Connection", his remix of A$AP Rocky's "Hella Hoes", Childish Gambino's "3005" and many more. In December, Jauz was given the opportunity to put together a mix for the BBC 1Xtra radio program Diplo & Friends and it is nothing short of impressive. The mix includes tracks from fellow producers and originals and new remixes from Jauz himself keeping mostly to the house and future house genres. Stream the mix and find the tracklist below. Enjoy!

Undeniably one of the biggest songs to hit the bass side of the dance music in 2014 was none other than Skrillex and Diplo's debut Jack Ü single “Take Ü There”. Gracing us on the last day of 2014, OWSLA has decided to bless us with a new Take Ü There remix by none other than Australian future bass star L D R U who is also one half of Carmada.
L D R U infuses his signature melodic synths with flume-esque vocal chops creating a very fun and bouncy remix. He retained Kiesza’s powerful vocals while adding in trap and future bass influences which makes this my favorite out of all the remixes dropped so far. OWSLA has released the stream today and if you’re lucky enough to be a Nest IV member you can login and snatch up a free download. Enjoy

Merry Crimbüs Everybody! A message popped up on the Instagram accounts of both Diplo and Skrillex on Christmas day proclaiming that their tag-team production partnership Jack Ü would be delivering some holiday cheer today. After making quite the splash in 2014 with their debut single "Take Ü There" being one of the year's leading anthems, the dance community has high expectations for a full EP or album and mouthwatering collaborations in the new year.
As the two brace themselves for the biggest performance of their lives thus-far, headlining Madison Square Garden in New York City on New Years Eve, they've dropped off some holiday cheer in the form of a thumping remix of Queen Beyoncé's newest charting single "7/11". Jack Ü plants twists of electro synths and bass knocks into a restructured drop, with the end result making the song more of a party starting turn up for all to enjoy. Spread the gift of music this season by sharing the stream below!

Skrillex and Diplo's collab project Jack Ü continues to bring us a stream of all star remixes of their debut single "Take Ü There". Following up the recent Zeds Dead version, we now have Paris based future house pioneer Tchami offering his own spin. We hear Tchami deliver his signature house sound with an even more heavy twist on the drops, which makes sense considering who he is remixing. Looks like Tchami is not slowing down anytime soon as he continues to establish himself as one of the most exciting producers to be watching out for. You can stream the song below, but be on the look out to pick up your copy alongside the upcoming Take Ü There Remix EP set to release December 23rd. Enjoy!

What happens when you gather 40 of the best producers, DJs, musicians, and vocalists downunder to try and create one sensational new track? Triple J radio personalities Matt and Alex made a valiant effort to construct a “Hottest 100” record with some of the biggest names in music and documented the experience for all to see.
Sadly, Lorde wanted no part in the endeavor and opted out at the first opportunity. Next, warious artists start chiming in with opinions on what it takes to build a great song, with Flume making sure everyone knew that laptops are essential in the process before Reggie Watt’s cuts out a distorted vocal sample. The mention of synths and bass, albeit the guitar, are shoved at Diplo who declines the notion while triggering Skrillex to eventually “drop the bass” accidently.
Bickering ensues amongst the group, but have no fear, because Flume was again on hand and reminded everyone that "(he) could remix the track!"
The creative process eventually leads to everyone storming out due to Rick Astley, Mr. Rick Roll himself, being kicked off the team and we are left without a true track that combines everyones talents. But hey, at least the attempt made for an entertaining 5 minute video. Laugh and enjoy!
Skrillex and Diplo are taking this year by storm with their own solo projects and their newly formed collaboration Jack Ü; all set to perform at the iconic Madison Square Garden on New Year's Eve. The duo's single "Take Ü There" ft. Kiesza has become an anthem over the past few months and is now turning out some incredible remixes. The track has been taken on by many producers such as Slander and Drunken Masters, but today we may have the hottest of them all from Canadian based duo Zeds Dead. The guys keep the song's original tempo highlighting the vocals, but add a new catchy melody that dives right into a ZD signature drop making it a straight heater. The "Take Ü There" remixes are available Dec. 23rd but in the meantime you can stream the song below and purchase the original on iTunes.

One of the most impressive songs from Skrillex’s debut album has to be the collaboration with Diplo on the massive anthem “Dirty Vibe”. The gritty club tune features some fierce verses from K-Pop stars CL & G-Dragon and highlights both rappers throughout the video. They are accompanied by some outrageous dancers and over the top visuals to capture the dark edge of the song. Enjoy!
