Mac Miller is back with another unbelievably entertaining music video, this time for “Avian”, the spacy single from his latest Watching Movies With The Sound Off album. The video directed by Rex Arrow (responsible for a fair amount of Mac’s previous videos), gives us a video centered around an older man spitting the verses of the track. The video shows that you don’t necessarily have to center a video around the artist and still put it off, as seen with not a single shot of Mac throughout. Watch the video and pick up your copy of Watching Movies With The Sound Off if you don’t haven't it already. Enjoy!

LA native Shlohmo production continues to evolve as the beat maker establishes himself as one of the premiere electronic producers to keep a watch on. After laying down quite the foundation for American songstress BANKS to take hold of vocally, Shlohmo furthers his relationship with established R&B singer Jeremih on the brand new "No More" single leading up to their collaborative EP set to release through Lucky Me / Def Jam of the same name. The screeching synth pattern wrapped around subtle blasts of bass from the future are only intensified when Jeremih lets loose his smooth vocals on the track. The combination of these two are some very special and have us anxiously waiting the rest of the EP. Stream the track below and grab a free download as well. Enjoy

The buzz surrounding producer / DJ extraordinaire Skrillex and rapper Chance the Rapper unexpected time in the studio is the talk of the music world currently with the potential for future collaborations at stake (see above in studio alongside Mike Will Made It). Skrillex unleashed the first of their sessions at his intimate Brooklyn show apart of his Takeover tour last night. The production doesn't sound like your typical Skrillex track and is more of a hip-hop song as opposed to a dubstep banger with Chance's charismatic vocals abundant throughout the length of it. Regardless of this being a very rough quality camera video, it gives us the first sample of what sounds like some serious chemistry between the artists. Enjoy
