Kygo continues his transformation from being the most highly buzzed about internet remix artist to being a fully accredited global star as he rolls out his first original songs. Following up his debut single "Firestone" he treats us to his latest, "Stole The Show" featuring the talented singer Parson James. We hear Kygo's signature bright melodies shine through and some smooth organic elements that leave room for Parson's vocals to carry out the track. The video follows a dancing astronaut, Kygo himself dancing in ski gear in a house party, and an interesting twist. This might be an even bigger track then his first, it will be cool to see how big it goes! Enjoy!

"India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me.

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. “

Say hello to iSHi, a brand new producer in the game that we have very little information on. But this brand new producer just released his debut single which has a feature from Pusha T providing insanely fresh verses. The production is a bass fueled trap beat that sets the tone for the entire track and provides the perfect soundtrack for Pusha to drop some relentless verses throughout. The fact that iSHi has Pusha T featured on his debut single has us thinking this is some other major producer’s side project, or someone that has to be connected enough to pull that off. Either way, we are sold and expect big things to follow with iSHI. We are also treated to the tease of what looks like his new music video right at the end here. Listen below and watch the video. Enjoy!

In a matter of a year, ZHU quickly went from being someone who sent us an Outkast bootleg mashup to our submission to receiving a Grammy nomination. Today he brings another single from his Nightday EP to life with a music video for "The One." For this music video version of the song there is a saxaphone-fueled intro and outro to make things even more interesting. The video is film noire with graphic novel texture and highlights a woman holding a man captive in her house.
At the end of the video we see a glimpse of Zhu himself, keeping the mysterious vibe high.
Right at the end we also get a shot of his newly announced European tour dates starting in May.
May 22: Ibiza
May 25: Amsterdam

Kygo continues to cement his rise to the top by releasing an official music video for his debut original single "Firestone" featuring singer Conrad. The video's story line is a guy chasing a girl, but done in a very unique fashion. He runs through buildings, and ends up at a house party that Kygo is playing and what looks like a cameo from Dillon Francis. As he storms through the doors in what seems like an alternate reality, ultimately ending with his prize. It's a cool video that brings an amazing single to life. Watch below and you can pick up your own copy through iTunes today. Enjoy!
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.

Flying Lotus is not one to do anything lightly, always pushing the boundaries not only with his beat-styled productions, but with his music videos as well. The video for his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on "Never Catch Me" showcases exactly the high quality of music videos he turns out, yet today even that one may have been topped. He's brought "Coronus, The Terminator" from his latest album Your Dead! to life, and intense is an understatement. With a starring role from Flying Lotus himself, watch the journey, and be warned the ending is a little graphic. Enjoy!

One of dance music's biggest trend setters and head of the influential Fool's Gold Records, mixmaster A-Trak has always been on top of the game. However, recently the CEO has been on an entirely new level, putting out a full length mixtape last month with DC rapper Wale featuring an all star cast including A$AP Ferg, Chance The Rapper, and Pusha T that was released for free to celebrate the holiday 'Festivus'. One of his biggest singles yet is his disco infused electro anthem "Push" drawing some classic inspiration delivered in a very modern way.
The song has been gaining huge momentum, and A-Trak has just brought it to life with an outrageous new music video. Featuring cameos from A-Trak himself, Atlanta producer TM88 of 808 Mafia, a series of Nude models, and even a tiger, it is impossible to be bored through the length of the video.
A-Trak even had a few words on why he chose this direction for the music video. "My approach to dance music has always been a bit left, so the last thing I wanted was one of those sparkler bottle 'lets make this night live forever!' videos". "Instead, I wanted to make something with the opulence of a rap video, but shot like a renaissance painting. It's kind of like Eyes Wide Shut meets Burning Man."

Childish Gambino is an artist who does not take his music videos lightly, delivering basically short films for almost every release like “Sweatpants” or “Telegraph Ave” among others. Today we get the latest from the rapper / singer / actor for one of his most recent songs “Sober” off the Kauai EP. He brings the song to life singing to a girl waiting for her take-out food. It borders the line of cheesy and comedy featuring some outrageous dance moves from Gambino. The setting also reminds us of the diner in the ‘Sweatpants’ music video, making us wonder if that was Donald’s intention for connecting his videos. Enjoy!
