Recently the creator of Minecraft and active EDM enthusiast Markus Persson has become a multi billionaire and has been spending his money in some pretty amazing ways. Just earlier this year he bought one of the most outrageous houses in LA and had a house party with Skrillex, Diplo and many others.
Well today we bring you his latest shenanigan, a 20,000 person private party thrown in the middle of Los Angels Memorial Coliseum, under a massive pitched up tent where some of the most epic visuals were projected onto the entire ceiling. He brought out DJ icons Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake and even rappers Rae Srremmurd. He did this to celebrate E3, which for those outside of the gaming world is the biggest trade show of the year in gaming with all the newest products getting debuted (Think of it as the SXSW of the gaming world).
Watch below and see a taste of the absolutely insane visuals and hear some unreleased music.

Although Daft Punk might not be headlining Coachella, we do get to confirm the other huge rumor of the duo putting out some new music. It has been 8 years since their last true album, and 3 since they scored the entire Tron: Legacy sountrack. The waiting is now over as Le Parisen, one of the biggest French publications just released details on the group signing with Sony Records imprint Columbia Records. This is a huge label jump from British based EMI, who has been home to the group’s first 3 records. Guy-Manuel of Daft Punk in let the details slip while talking with friends at the album release party for his friend Kavinsky in France.
Once the deal with Sony / Columbia has been finalized, they are set to worldwide release this spring.
What direction do you think Daft Punk will take?

I hope that a fair amount of you remember The Postal Service, the incredible electronic side project duo featuring Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and producer Jimmy Tamborello which debuted all the way back in 2003 with their album Give Up. Well the group grew a powerful following through the grapevine over years, yet never released any new music. Well today that changes, with signs of a possible reunion and new music. They have launched a new website with the simple message shown above, which could only mean a possible reunion. I don’t want to get my hopes up to high before an official release date out of Ben Gibbard’s mouth, but this defintely opens up some possibilities. Lots of New Music? Potential Coachella play??
UPDATE: The group has announced that they will be releasing a deluxe edition of their album Give Up next month through Sub Pop. There is also confirmation from Billboard that the group will be performing at this year’s Coachella Music Festival!!
To celebrate this good sign, I have picked out a handful of great tracks from The Postal Service. Get ready for a blast of Nostalgia. If you don’t have their album Give Up, or just need a new copy, I wouldn’t wait any longer and find a copy your own way or through iTunes Here.
