The Weeknd follows up his debut tri-mitape album release Trilogy with the first 2 songs off his upcoming album Kiss Land in a 7 minute back to back clip. “Kiss Land” with the same name as the album follows his expected graphic female focused lyrics we saw on his previous releases. While “John Carptner” we get a change of pace from Abel as he talks about his drug habits and the transition from never leaving home and then seeing the world. Both track follow his dark signature style. More details on the album as they come in. Enjoy

Deadmau5 continues his pattern of dropping “in progress” songs with the preview of “Satellite”. This track is insanely smooth and packs quite the punch of emotion with accompaniment of vocals from Deadmau5’s girlfriend, the famed tattoo artist, Kat Von D. The song has so many layers, both organic and electronic all coming together for a very impactful production. There is an abrupt transition at 1:18, which sounds like the Mau5 is taking a minimalistic trap inspired approach.. but I have a feeling the song is simply unfinished. As the Mau5 says “heres the intro + 1st verse for you. :)” Kat’s vocals with the production work so well. This is set to come out on Kat Von D’s upcoming debut album.
