Mike Gonek and Evan Norton, also known as Torro Torro had a mutual ambition to tell a movie-like story in a four minute music video. The "Ca$hville" video's backdrop, Los Angeles, became their current home after the Canadian duo set up a studio there earlier this year. This eventful video provides perfect visuals to Torro Torro's latest banger. A vengeful thug goes on a crime filled adventure for a large sum of cash. Released via Mad Decent, "Ca$hville" was a Mad Ruk Entertainment Production directed by Jon Riera, produced by Maurico Ruiz, with Cinematography by Kelly Jeffrey.

Probably the most exciting supergroup to take the electronic world by storm this year is the colossal duo Jack Ü. Fresh off their Power 106 hip-hop mix, Skrillex and Diplo have unveiled the official video for their hit single “Take Ü There” featuring the amazing Canadian singer Kiesza.
The video showcases the rowdy energy at the first live Jack Ü performances; an awesome on-stage perspective whether you were able to catch them this year or not. If there's one thing these two kings of EDM know how to do better then most, it's put on a damn good show. The other elements of the video really kick it up a notch. The layers of animation are at times extra weird, and at times funny (watch out for Skrilly's pizza toss at 3:12); but always interesting. Stream the video below. Enjoy

Skrillex music videos tend to be a little outrageous, but with that being said they are always very entertaining. Bass ambassador Skrillex has unveiled his newest video for the track "Fuck That" from his debut studio album Recess. This is one of the more different sounding tracks we've heard from Skrillex stepping far away from the typical heavy sound hes is known for.
The video takes us through a visual journey of what seems to be a foreign interpretation of fight club. It starts off with our main character being released from some sort of underworld boxing training camp back into the arms of his presumed girlfriend. You would be naive to assume they were going home happily ever after as almost immediately after his release he receives a call that leads him back into the world of fighting that ends with an epic twist. Watch the video below and you can pick up your copy of the album today. Enjoy!

A re-creation of the cult classic film Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas, the video starts off with Schoolboy building a concoction of pills and liquids similar to the drug binge from the movie. The visual effects let the viewer step into Q's shoes after ingesting all the substances. This video couldn’t be more fitting for a song titled “Hell of a Night” as girls bounce around a raging house party punctuated by a series of interesting events. The video starts and ends with the same scene as if it might start all over again, or was it just a dream? Watch the wild journey and you can pick up your copy of the song as part of Schoolboy Q's latest album Oxymoron. Enjoy!
Kendrick Lamar blew away expectations with the first single "i" from his soon-to-be released sophomore album. The feel good anthem shows a more versatile matured side of the artist and today we get a fittingly warm official music video. Following Kendrick on a cinematic journey through the streets of LA the video paints the perfect visual for the single. Watch below and you can pick up your copy through iTunes. Enjoy!
Vancouver based rapper SonReal is back with his best music video yet with quite an interesting concept. He just got off a massive 50+ stop tour and during the tour he managed to catch a shot at over 58 different locations over a 3 month period. The hard work most definitely paid off as the video is highly entertaining you while it changes every few seconds. You might notice some famous city landmarks and even a pit stop at the Breaking Bad house from the television show. The song is also very on point with some solid playful verses from SonReal. Watch below and you can pick up a copy trough iTunes. Enjoy!

Just a few weeks back news broke that unveiled the track-list for Calvin Harris’ latest studio album Motion set to release November 7th. The most surprising and unexpected collaboration on the track-list leak was “Open Wide” featuring Big Sean, which we can hear for the first time today via the release of the official music video.
Electronic fans will recognize Calvin’s contribution to the song as it is a re-work of his massive festival banger “C.U.B.A.”. Adding Big Sean’s outrageous verses and chorus fits the track perfectly leaving us with another guaranteed hit. You can pre-order your copy of Motion today via Calvin's website, and enjoy the new video!

The time for Dillon Francis has finally arrived. We posted the stream to his debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule earlier this week and now we are happy to bring you the new music video for "When We Were Young" ft. Sultan, Ned Shepard and The Chaing Gang Of 1974. The video takes our cast of characters (Dillon, Sultan & Ned Shepard, and The Chain Gang of 1974 as the creepy clown) and throws them back in time to a very wild childhood birthday party. This music video has it all from party favors, games and cake, to creepy clowns, a bouncy house, and a rock concert played out on fisher price instruments. Only something so silly and straight up entertaining could come from the mind of the guy responsible for Hansel and not giving a Fuck or a Shit. You can stream the video below and pre-order the album here. Enjoy!

German-based producer / DJ Robin Schulz is making noise thanks to a collection of viral tracks that have seen some international success. He's becoming a household name in multiple countries and is spreading fast everywhere else, so we thought it was overdue to do a Robin Schulz catchup post to bring readers up to speed through some of his best remixes and originals, including his new music video and the announcement of his first US tour ever.
First we are starting with the release that kicked things off, his remix of "Waves" originally by Dutch soul singer Mr. Probz released late last year. The song hit #1 in too many countries to name and has seen well over 100+ million plays online collectively. He highlights the smooth vocals and guitar line perfectly arranging things while speeding things up leaving us with quite a hit. Watch the music video below.
His next unstoppable hit takes on French indie band Lilly Wood & The Prick and their single "Prayer In C" which was originally from 2010, but turned into an international hit once Robin remixed it this year. He highlights the vocals and guitar strumming leaving us with one of his best tracks to date. This one also has international success and has racked up over 70+ million plays online collectively. Watch the music video below.
On top of these remixes he has managed to find time to release his debut album Prayer which features some of his best remixes over the past year on top of some originals. The lead original single from the album is "Sun Goes Down" which features UK singer Jasmine Thompson and is quite the slice of deep house perfection featuring one of the best uses of a saxophone in house music I have heard. The song has been brought to life as Robin's latest official music video helping enjoy the perfect blend of organic and electronic elements. Listen and watch below. You can pick up this single apart of Robin Schulz's debut album Prayer. Enjoy!

The elusive ZHU doesn't tend to do things as most would consider normal, instead he pushes the boundaries every step in his explosive new career. Just last week we reported on some Zhu posters popping up around NYC, and today have a confirmation on what they mean.
The two dates on the posters November 21st and 22nd are the dates marking ZHU's first ever series of headline live shows which will be known as THE NIGHTDAY EXPERIENCE taking place in NYC at still undisclosed locations.
We discover Zhu's love for fashion as the tickets will solely be available at the flagship high fashion store Opening Ceremony. Address is 35 Howard St. in the SoHo district. Tickets will be available this Thursday at 5:30pm EST. Ticket buyers will also receive a limited NIGHTDAY EP vinyl. (Only 2 tickets per person)
With how small we expect these shows to be, I wouldn't hesitate grabbing your own tickets as I'd expect a pretty fast sell out.
To celebrate the announcement, ZHU has also unveiled some impressive new visuals for the single "Paradise Awaits" from his NIGHTDAY EP. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
