Kendrick Lamar's critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly is undoubtedly one of the most important albums in recent history, and this new video for “Alright” brings the visual side to the messages Kdot conveys through his music. This video splices together parts from “U” in the intro and moves into a new verse before it goes into the album version of “Alright" in an entirely black and white video. The visual interpretation displays racial issues and police brutality while Kendrick does some really crazy stunts flying around, dancing on street signs, and it ends with him getting shot by the police. Enjoy!

Claude VonStroke is one of the leaders in the American dance world who has also fostered a global presence thanks to flawless live sets at clubs and festivals across the world.
His dirtybird label is responsible for turning out some of the top secret weapons in innumerable Djs sets, but when he steps up to release a single himself it is always something special. His newest single "Make A Cake" has been released as the b-side to his Barrump single and is a gritty, tech house heater. The song is full of just the right details and texture to capture that booty shaking dirtybird sound.
For the video we see the erotic, hilarious adventure of a blow up suit character going on a classic movie-style date with a hot girl. They play mini golf, go go-cart racing, hit the batting cages, and get it on in their parked car. The girl then proceeds to pop the inflatable character with her fingernail which causes him to almost pass out before the girl saves him with some roadskies to cap off the ridiculous video. How could you expect anything less from Claude at this point? Enjoy.

Well, today he goes one step further with the official music video of his chart topping house anthem "Generate" that is a true visual journey. Surprisingly enough there is NO USE OF CGI in the video.

Australian overnight superstar Flume has kept relatively quiet in terms of new music, with the exceptions of his remix of Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down” and the single "Gemini" as a part of What So Not . Well, today we get the first new original from him since his Drop The Game EP with Chet Faker.
This new single “Some Minds” features vocals from Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow, creating the perfect collaboration of sounds. Flume provides an incredible yet relatively tame signature sounding song until just after the 3 minute mark when he proceeds to drop an unexpected bass heavy section that produces the perfect edge to the song you had no idea was missing till you heard it.
The video was done in partnership with Sydney Opera House, where they were granted exclusive permission to shoot this visually stunning piece. We see Flume as the star, along with some amazing choreographed dancers. All this is released in cohesion of his sold out shows at the Sydney Opera House on May 29th and 30th.

The Weeknd has been fairly quiet since the release of his first true radio breakout “Earned It,” which was originally for the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack. Abel has now unleashed a brand new track titled “The Hills” alongside a music video that has been previously performed live, and was thought to be titled “Mood Music.”
The Weeknd never fails to deliver captivating music videos and this latest video is no exception. Eerie, dark visuals set the tone perfectly for the song. Abel emerges from a car crash, which then engulfs in a fiery explosion while he walks away from the crash as he offers his explicit, sensual crooning until he ultimately ends up in a strange bedroom with multiple women. Enjoy.

Well the young songstress has decided to break out on her own with her debut single "Have Mercy" which comes complete with a complimenting music video. The song is incredibly raw, filled with a minimalstic beat and a chorus of acapellas which sound like they could be her voice. We hear her impressive vocals range and truly feel the raw emotion she conveys. The song will most likely give you chills, also paired alongside a very gifting video focused around her in a dark room that adds an even more raw layer to the whole thing. I would expect to hear a lot more from this budding new singer. Enjoy!
