Montreal bass producer Snails cannot slow down. He just released his #FREETHEVOMIT EP, along with his monstrous EDC set full of unreleased tracks and edits. He has teamed up with Atlanta native HeRobust, whom we last heard on his remix of Rihanna's BBHM$, for a festival trap VIP remix of their electro house single "Pump This” which was released late last year. This has been a dj weapon over the past few months, and now you can finally get your hands on the full version, as they are releasing this as a limited 7 day free download via Skrillex's OWSLA label. This VIP comes with the announcement of a full "Pump This" remix EP dropping August 18th, featuring remixes from Getter, Apashe, Ghastly and Drezo.

Vindata has popped back on our radar with a brand new single alongside the announcement of their highly anticipated forthcoming EP Through Time And Space that's set to release through OWSLA. This epic song “Getting Away” features the angelic vocals of Mack, a female singer whose voice is a beautiful blend of R&B with a tin of pop. With heavy build-ups and drops, future synths, unbelievable vocal chopping and a new almost jungle flavor, Vindata has really taken their sound to new heights. The post-tropical era is beginning, and Vindata are one of the first to capitalize on it. Keep an eye out for their 6-track EP and enjoy the stream below!

Vic Mensa is absolutely killing it this year. He’s proven to be the future of Chicago hip hop alongside his longtime friend Chance The Rapper, but is going a different route from Chance as he’s chosen to be signed while Chance is staying independent.
This year Vic has already collaborated with Kaytranada multiple times and with Kanye on one of the hits of the summer with “U Mad” while recently being signed by Jay Z’s Roc Nation. We previously heard a live version of his collaboration with Skrillex, “No Chill,” but now we get to hear a radio rip of the studio version, and it exactly what we were hoping for. Skrillex brings his relentless drums and wonky horns as he proves he can produce hip hop as well as he does with his other production efforts. Vic goes in on this heater spitting choppy, lyrical verses while the beat drops in & out and he adds a catchy hook that has us impatiently awaiting more info about his debut studio album, Traffic.
Skrillex & Vic Mensa – No Chill
Skrillex & Diplo are in the middle of their unique Canadian run of shows done entirely by train known as the Full Flex Express Tour with Zeds Dead, A$AP Ferg, Tycho, Anna Lunoe, Mija and more and had one of the biggest stops last night in the "6", aka Toronto and live streamed the entire epic performance for everyone to see.
The duo manages to bring the most hyped up sections of their own solo sets for a collaborative demolition of the crowd. They bring out singers Kiesza and Kai to sing their respective tracks which worked very well. Skrillex manages to ride around on an IO Hawk throughout the set waving a huge Jack U flag. Watch the full set below and look at the track list after the video. Enjoy

Electric Forest Defines the Idea Of A “Secret Set” With Skrillex, Datsik, 12th Planet, SNAILS, Mr. Carmack and Big Gigantic [Editorial + Photo + Video]Posted in Bangin, Chill, Events, News by Bryan | Tags: 12th Planet, Big Gigantic, Carmack, Cherub, Crizzly, Datsik, Electric Forest, Honeycomb, Mr. Carmack, OWSLA, Secret Sets, Selection, Skrillex, SNAILS, Team Supreme, Vaski
Make sure to follow the TSIS Instagram here for more exclusive photos and videos from EF posted daily.
Even before the now infamous TSIS secret closing party with Big Gigantic and Cherub, which took place on top of RV’s in General Admission camping the last night of Electric Forest, Thissongissick.com already had two other epic secret sets under our belts that will go down as festival folklore for years to come.
We were slated to curate the “Good Life” stage located in VIP camping on Friday night and amassed a collection of bass brethren to throw down a very rare b2b2b2b2b2b take-over that kicked off at 3AM. After decimating the main stage crowd with a close out set, OWSLA head honcho and Jack Ü co-captain Skrillex lead the charge and was joined behind the decks by Firepower Records ace Datsik, SMOG general and last minute festival addition 12th Planet, vomitstep aficionado Snails, pizza-gang advocate and crunk-step innovator Crizzly, and dubstep maverick Vaski.
All six DJs/producers took the stage together across four CDJs. The song selection was nothing short of organized chaos as bass banger after bass banger melted the faces of all 1000+ attendee’s that packed the very intimate tent till just past 6AM.
Recreating something as stacked and intimate as this set was a daunting challenge, but a series of blessed events opened the door for another secret set Saturday night. This time marked our first return to the luminous forest since the iconic 2012 TSIS secret set that gave birth to Big Grizmatik (Big Gigantic + GRiZ + Gramatik). One of the most forward thinking producers in the game Mr. Carmack was chosen as man to start the night off, and ended up delivering much more.
As we commandeered the Grand Artique stage around 4:30AM, Mr. Carmack took a seat and went into the mix for 4 hours and played the perfect blend of soul, funk gritty bass, hip-hop and more. He not only unloaded an uncountable amount of unreleased originals and remixes from himself and friends, but then moved into mo-town hits, R&B classics and more for one of the most eclectic sets anyone in attendance had ever experienced.
There was a cast of other artists from the festival that were set to follow, but Mr. Carmack was nailing the vibe so perfectly that they allowed him to keep going.
Then, something magical happened toward the middle / end of Mr. Carmack's set. Newcomer hip-hop MC Honeycomb started beatboxing over the producer's funky beats. Having picked up on the vibes from the sidelines, the two were soon accompanied on stage by The Fungineer members Lafa Taylor, Kyrian Bobeerian and Honey LaRochelle, who delivered an unbelievable display of vocal talents alongside bass player Simply B (Brandon B Barker). It became a completely organic live band that even saw Carmack switch from Traktor to drum duties.
This unintentionally became one of the most outrageous and unexpected live musical experiences we've been apart of yet, and was further enhanced by a pristine sunrise that spread throughout the forest.
To be completely honest, we aren't sure if any other festival could house something so special and secretive compared to what the Thissongissick secret sets at Electric Forest became this year. We'd like to thank the Electric Forest team for the opportunity to craft these very special parties, and both Ryan Hug and Michael Silberman for their added assistantce. But most importantly, we'd love to thank those who attended these unforgetable performances with us so late in the evening. You best believe that 2016 will see another round of secret sets sponored by Thissongissick, so start planning your Electric Forest trip now! Enjoy
Yogi & Skrillex – Burial (Ft. Pusha T, Trollphace & Moody Good) : Must See Music Video with Cameo From Dennis RodmanPosted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: Dennis Rodman, Moody Good, Music Video, Pusha T, Skrillex, Trollphace, Yogi
LA based producer trio Yogi first made their mark in the dance scene with their massive hit "Burial" featuring rapper Pusha T, followed by huge remix EP from Skrillex, Trollphace, Moody Good and Crookers. Well, today they have dropped visuals for the hit song but with a twist. They have combined the original with Trollphace / Skrillex and Moody Good's remixes to create a whole new track specifically for the music video. Grant Singer who has done videos for Kanye West, Vic Mensa, The Weeknd, and more directed the music video and did it perfect justice. The video shows a group of eerie dancers doing unique routines and causing a ruckus until NBA legend Dennis Rodman shuts them down. Stream the music video below and we will keep you posted on a release for the new version. Enjoy

Seems like Skrillex has been on an un-stoppable roll latley, with the realese of Jack U's "Where Are U Now" Remix EP, some massive summer preformances, and unrealesed material continuing to surface in the festival Circuit. The latest unrealeased gem to hit the internet is his collaboration with Chicago rapper Vic Mensa, who has been on a roll of his own collaborating with Kanye West on some huge releases including thier latest single U Mad. The track is called 'No Chill' and was debuted by Vic Mensa at Echoplex in LA last night.

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.

London based Gully Type radio show premiered a brand new unexpected collaboration between Skrillex, Clams Casino, Rat King's Hak and Kelela last night and it is just what we wanted.

LA based producer / DJ AWE is a frequently covered artist on TSIS, he has released some of the most forward thinking originals with "Crystals" and heavily supported remixes such as his remix Jack U's "Take U There" and many more. Well today AWE has dropped a mix for Nina Las Vegas' Triple J Mix Up Exclusives Show and it is full of surprises. The mix is opened by none other than Skrillex with a hilarious intro and dives into 60 minutes of fresh originals, remixes and IDs from AWE and other producer friends.

Super-producer Skrillex has been known to work with some incredible people such as Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber and many many more. Today we have news that Sonny is adding to his collab repertoire Rage Against The Machine guitar player Tom Morello and Jay Z-signed artist Jahlil Beats. A picture just surfaced moments ago without many details but we know this could only lead to something HUGE. Seems like Tom Morello is really branching out into the electronic world after a picture of him and Bassnectar in the studio popped up last month as well. We are more than excited to see what comes of these collaborations. We will keep you posted as more info rolls in.
Bass tastemaker Skrillex has planted back to the top of the game in the past year having released his long awaited debut studio album Recess last year, which was followed up with his much hyped collaborative Jack U album alongside Diplo earlier this year. If having these two albums under his belt, and playing an endless amount of festivals and headline shows across the globe wasn't enough… he has another new solo album coming out soon!
Skrillex went out a fun night of bowling with Interntional Art of Bowling team while visiting Australia and happened to calmly reveal the MASSIVE news, that after his Jack U album (which is now released), he would be dropping a new solo Skrillex album. This huge piece of information being revealed in such a random video was discoverd thanks to a Skrillex fan thread.
We don't know much news, other than we should be expecting a full new Skrillex album, not even an EP, an album. Watch the video below to watch Sonny drop the bomb. If it doesn't immediatly start playing at the right part, skip ahead to 1:45.
With his last album featuring everyone from Fatman Scoop to Chance the Rapper, we can only dream of what collaborations are in store. Enjoy.

Last year Aussie producers Yahtzel and LDRU combined forces to become the supergroup Carmada and TSIS premiered their debut single "Maybe" which was apart of their Realise EP which has already been followed up with live festival debuts foreshadowing their very massive year ahead of them. Over a million plays later on "Maybe" has led to the natural decision of releasing a monster remix EP around it and we have the exclusive of the very first one. Fellow Aussie rising forces Slumberjack and Elk Road have stepped up to the plate to offer an eerie future bass styled twist to the song with added horns, melodic synths and powerful drums to make things interesting. Stream the premiere below and you can pre-order for a release on April 16th through OWSLA along with the entire package also featuring Getter, Trollphace, Pegboard Nerds and more!
