Recently the creator of Minecraft and active EDM enthusiast Markus Persson has become a multi billionaire and has been spending his money in some pretty amazing ways. Just earlier this year he bought one of the most outrageous houses in LA and had a house party with Skrillex, Diplo and many others.
Well today we bring you his latest shenanigan, a 20,000 person private party thrown in the middle of Los Angels Memorial Coliseum, under a massive pitched up tent where some of the most epic visuals were projected onto the entire ceiling. He brought out DJ icons Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake and even rappers Rae Srremmurd. He did this to celebrate E3, which for those outside of the gaming world is the biggest trade show of the year in gaming with all the newest products getting debuted (Think of it as the SXSW of the gaming world).
Watch below and see a taste of the absolutely insane visuals and hear some unreleased music.

We previously heard a radio leak but now we get to hear the full version. Let the vibes take you away to that summer state of mind. Enjoy!

Well today, we have Part 2 of a remix package rolling out and we are happy to premiere the latest one. From non other than TSIS long time favorite and remix contest winner Party Favor. Known for turning things up a bit, the LA producer has taken the song and turned into a trapped out twerk anthem by adding new drums, synth lines, and a relentless drop that leaves ample room for Kai's vocals to shine nicely. Stream the premiere and pick up your copy along with Unlike Pluto and Absence's remixes below via Mad Decent. Enjoy!

International icon for all things bass music, Skrillex, made history this past weekend as he headlined Ultra Music Festival in Miami closing out the entire festival on the main stage. This was the very same slot that Swedish House Mafia played their very last show 2 years ago, which is a testament to the changing of times.
For such a massive slot, Skrillex obviously had to bring out some very special guests to make it a night to remember starting with his partner in crime Diplo joining for the entire set making it a Surprise Jack Ü performance, which makes sense since they are hot off the release of their long awaited debut collaborative album. He also brought out Kiesza, Kai, and CL to perform all their respective tracks live. It wouldn’t be a proper Miami party if none other than rapper and hip-hop mogul P. Diddy hadn’t been brought out, which he proceeded to MC the rest of the set. Then for the closing track, Skrillex and Diplo perform their single “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber for the first time ever live since it has been released with the accompaniment from Bieber himself. Regardless of his obvious lip synching, he does do a respectable robot dance and adds a final touch to the unforgettable performance. Sit back, go full screen and enjoy the entire iconic performance in full HD thanks to Skrillex and Ultra. Enjoy!

He makes the song even more upbeat and as he stated he wanted to create something he could play live easier. Listen to the premiere below and we will keep you posted on a release date. Enjoy!

Here is what Diplo had to say about making the video.
"India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget. “

LA based producer AWE has always pushed the boundaries of Future Bass, Trap, and Bass music; taking elements from all over and truly carving his own sound. Today his latest target for a remix is Skrillex and Diplo's debut single as powerhouse duo Jack Ü's, "Take Ü There". As always, AWE pushes sounds further then you could imagine leaving us with something that is almost impossible to toss a label on, yet he is using "Future Trap" to get the message across. This is not for the feint of heart, as it will rattle your spine from the very first drop. This is taken from OWSLA's newly announced Spring 2015 Compilation which is out next week.
