There's no denying the international star power between electronic music pioneers Daft Punk and hip-hops great Jay-Z, but unbeknownst to many of us untill today the iconic artists came together to collaborate on a track during a supposed studio session with Kanye West producing for the Tron Soundtrack. "Computerized" is every bit as awesome as you'd expect, with Daft Punk turning back time to lay down a classic electro funk beat similar to pre-Random Access Memories days with splashes of catchy synth patterns and keyboard samples galore while Jay-Z lays down verse after verse with flawless ease.
This potential blockbuster has every media source searching for the factual nature of this track since it surfaced over the weekend, but unlike most bootlegs previously touted as Daft Punk originals, this sounds extremely legitimate and also raises the question of why this was track was scraped from a release. Stream the track below and stay on the look for more info as soon it becomes available. Enjoy

Kanye defends public fight with Jimmy Kimmel on his show and gives incredible interview [FULL VIDEO INTERVIEW]Posted in Chill, Interview, News, Uncategorized, Video by nick | Tags: abc, Interview, Jimmy Kimmel, kanye west, Live Video
The recent controversy between Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel was squashed last evening as Kanye made a special lengthy appearance on Jimmy’s show last night. He dives into very real subjects, going in depth explaining some of the outrageous statements that derived from his must see multiple hour interview with Zane Lowe at BBC in the UK, that saw lots of media backlash. The site has always been pretty supportive for Kanye regardless of some of the things he’s done in public, and this interview I truly feel more then any other piece of media around Kanye will let you see him in a far more understanding light.
In the sea of rappers and generally most musicians, Kanye is actually trying to change the standards of so many things. Besides music and fashion Kanye strives to push the idea of being creative, and believing in yourself in such a unique way that hopefully you can understand a little bit more after this interview.
Watch the full 6 part interview below. Think Kanye was outrageous? Or still is just as wild? Comment below.
Kanye west is easily one of the most entertaining and regardless if you like it or not, influential people in the music world. He sat down with Zane Lowe for a very rare video interview spanning over 4 parts really diving into the unbelievably “complex” mind of Kanye West. This is the interview that Jimmy Kimmel has since made fun of and led to a “rap feud” with Mr. Kanye West.
Kanye does bring up some amazing points, but get’s diluted by some of crazy shit surrounding these great points.
Just watch all 4 parts of this now iconic interview and see for yourself and comment below:
“New Slaves” from Kanye West’s new album Yeezus just got a must-hear trap inspired remix thanks to Dj Snake. The first drop hooks you in, then the song progresses to get better and better.

Kanye West decided to premiere his newest song “New Slaves” by broadcasting via video projection on buildings in 66 different cities worldwide last night, some cities included New York, Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Berlin, Paris, and more.
Here is Kanye’s Tweet announcing the operation: (All locations available here)
This is the first sample off his upcoming new album set for a June 18th release which has guest collaborators Daft Punk and Skrillex among others. The video is a black and white version of Kanye’s face singing along to the powerful lyrics. I think we can expect this to set the tone for the upcoming album. We should expect and even more experimental artist.
Kanye West dropped a two word tweet “June Eighteen” signifying the upcoming release date for his 6th studio album. Daft Punk, Skrillex, Odd Future, Chief Keef, 2 Chainz, John Legend and more are set to be collaborators on the huge record. Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk said “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck” while Daft Punk counter part Guy-Manuel added “He’s a good friend”. They have two tracks that sprang from working together. “One of them, I told him it sounded solid and powerful – I envisioned a cube when I heard it” is what Michal Gondry (Director and longtime Daft Punk friend) had to say about hearing the tracks. Stating a music video is already in the works. The album is said to be “even darker and more twisted” then Kanye’s previous LP release. Daft Punk also added that “It was very raw, He was rapping– kind of screaming primally.”
June 18th looks to be a huge release with quite the cast. We will keep you posted on more details as they roll in.

The combination of Montreal based Lunice and Glasgow based Hudson Mohawke is unreal. The first song the unstoppable duo ever made together was “R U Ready”, and was self released on their soundcloud. It was then taken down almost immediately at request of Kanye West, who in turn used it in his Fashion show, see the video here. Well after the long wait of horrible rips and previews, we finally a high quality version of this trap banger to bump. Those horns.. so massive. Turn this up, enjoy!

The Governors Ball NYC Music Festival 2013 Full Lineup : Impressive Lineup Including 50+ Acts on Randall’s Island, New YorkPosted in Bangin, Events, News by nick | Tags: Concert, kanye west, Music Festival, New York City, NYC, pretty lights, The Governors Ball
As the the year continues to kick off we get another incredible lineup for one of the summer’s biggest parties in America. The Governors Ball takes place every year in New York City at Randall’s Island, an actual island. The festival is taking place over the weekend of June 6th, 7th, and 8th. It seems to always have a massive lineup filled with big headliners to some of the best buzzing upcomers. The Ball’s lineup tends to be a great mixture of everything hip. From a great balance of hip-hop, electronic, indie, blues, folk, and other live acts. It seems to be a great alternative for those in the North East not looking to make the nationwide trek.
This lineup is insane. Not an event to miss for anyone within range!

The duo TNGHT (Lunice + Hudson Mohawke) are really set out to make 2013 their year. There has been some word about the duo working with Kanye West. To further cement that idea Lunice just dropped through BBC, this simple yet powerful trap edit of the massive hit “Clique” by Kanye West featuring Jay-Z and Big Sean. This track has such a smooth, clean vibe to it, unlike a lot of the over the top agressive trap I have been hearing recently. Will keep you posted once we hear anything about an official releaes. For now you can abuse the replay button, enjoy!
