Whether it's a new track or a music video serving as a public service announcement, everything Diplo touches seems to turn to gold. Heavyweight producers Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ teamed up with Diplo alongside Waka Flocka Flame on "Techno" last month, and now we get the visual interpretation of this tune. This dark video depicts the path drugs take from the source to the end user ultimately dying as a direct result from these drugs. With the amount of drug-related casualties that have been happening at music festivals and shows over the past couple years, this video serves as a P.S.A. to all music fans as the video ends with "Drugs Are Not Worth The Risk" displayed at the end of the video.

An unlikely pairing between German techno producer Boys Noize and Brooklyn trap beatmaker Baauer for a string of upcoming US nationwide shows titled The Run X tour has paved the way for something much more! The two commodities within dance music joined forces outside of sharing the same stage to create "Fire Like This", a collaborative release that fully flexes their individual skill sets perfectly. Bringing together gritty electro basslines, a looping schoolyard chant, various percussion elements, and a touch of trap aesthetics, the two conjure up a single that is too enticing to just play once and will surely have dance-floor's across the world popping off when played out live. This heater is being handed out as a free download and I strongly urge you to add this release to your music library as soon as possible. Enjoy

Whether collaborating with OWSLA kingpin Skrillex as supergroup Dog Blood or cultivating his signature sound alone, there is no question of German producer Boys Noize reign in and outside of the electronic music community. Possessing the sleek ability to commingle German techno with acid house and disco elements has made Boys Noize a personal favorite of mine for years and today we were blessed with the opportunity of premiering his latest undertaking for your listening pleasure. The infectious vibe oozing off the single "Starwin" is further enhanced by Boys Noize himself as he slows the tempo, adds hook samples and places a fresh kick drum pattern within. The "bounce version" captures the essence of the original, but delivers a new twist which we can't stop playing. Listen to the exclusive premiere below and grab Boys Noize Go Hard – The Remixes EP on digital download April 28th via Boys Noize Records. Enjoy

After viewing the track-list for the highly anticipated Divergent Soundtrack, the collaboration bringing A$AP Rocky and Gesaffelstein together peaked our interest greatly as one of rap's biggest faces combines with one of electronic music's finest producers. "In Distress" see's both artists flexing their capabilities as one with A$AP Rocky letting loose a tirade of fresh verses while Gesaffelstein's French electro / techno relatively reserved foundation supples the same level of darkness featured on his debut album Aleph. Stream the track below and pre-order the most hyped motion picture soundtracks of the year here. Enjoy

Tiësto will always be one of the most influential and talked about DJs on the planet. Headlining countless music festivals in every single country, releasing thousands of mixes and having a few artist albums under his belt. For the first time in years, Tiesto has returned to Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 program to lay down a brand new Essential Mix. The coveted 2 hour mix where an artist can step outside the box by unveiling unreleased material as seen by Nero, Eric Prydz and Skrillex or for an artist to show a completely different side, like Disclosure dropping an hour of straight hip-hop to start their mix last year. Steering almost entirely away from the expected progressive / electro house anthems, Tiesto showcases his newer side with an exciting blend of techno, deep house and future garage music; displaying some of the hottest tracks and the latest offerings from his Music Freedom label, like "Gecko" and even showcasing a fury of unreleased music. Stream the mix and look at the full track-list below. What are your thoughts on Tiesto's new direction of DJ style / genre choice?
