#HDYNATION TOUR Dates After The Jump
A couple of weeks back Rustie dropped off the latest single from his upcoming album, his second collaboration with Detroit rapper Danny Brown that I literally haven't been able to stop replaying since. The song "Attak" is brought to life through music video form thanks to director Peter Mardsen, delivered in quite a minimalistic fashion. We get a blank room with a clean cut Danny in the center laying down his fiery verses that while some lines may have been hard to decipher, has been brought to life as the lyrics are animated across the screen throughout. This is the latest single from Rustie's forthcoming sophomore album release, Green Language, set to release through Warp Records on August 26th. You can get this song and the previous single 'Raptor' as a free download when you pre-order the album today. Enjoy!

Diplo is quite the guy I must say. He's never one to let up on providing entertainment from his stream of greatness via social media or jokingly acknowledging that his recent cut of Lorde "Tennis Court" didn't exceed the remix done by friend and Australian powerhouse producer Flume. The Mad Decent head honcho recently took to Reddit to conduct an AMA and shared some juicy news on his supergroup project with Skrillex known as Jack U. The breakout collaboration of these two titans is coming out with a full length mixtape, which is something that could potentially crash the internet upon its release. The overflow of new material between the two found its way into Diplo's recently as he played out their first single "Take You There" in front of a daytime crowd. Though the video doesn't have the best audio, you can hear the excitement (largely the two girls confessing their love for Diplo) as songstress Kiesza lays down her pipes over a Jack U produced trap and bass beat that screams massive banger. Until we see the official release of the single or the news on the highly anticipated mixtape… Enjoy!

Porter Robinson status amongst electronic music's elite is without question as the young producer prepares to release the studio album of his dreams titled Worlds on the prestigious Astralwerks Records. We've already heard tracks off the upcoming release, "Sea Of Voices" & "Sad Machines", but now see one of the most creative pieces of art and music combined as the highly anticipated single "Lionhearted" is delivered with quite the visual aspect as well after it's premiere on BBC during Zane Lowe's show. The cinematography on display showcases beautiful scenes of Porter and a gang of Harajuku ladies taking over the streets of somewhere in Japan adding color to the dull surroundings perfectly accenting the songs' tranquil synth patterns, and lively vocals from Urban Cone. The story culminates in a unexpected manner that will leave avid Porter Robinson fans stunned, yet could have a deeper meaning of his core fans backlash at his new sound. You can watch the music video below and pre-order Worlds via iTunes now! Enjoy

This is the big one folks! While visiting Toronto for a stop on the The Mothership Tour, Dillon Francis and Skrillex meet up with deadmau5 for the longest "Coffee Run" to date with the episode clocking in at an actual feature film length (Over an hour and a half!). With such a good amount of time recorded, a whole lot of comical conversation took place amongst some reportable information that will peak the interest of many. deadmau5 talks about hitting the road for a tour in 2015 (though we hope this takes place closer to the end of this year), Skrillex and Dillon have collaborated on two tracks thus-far while on tour, Skrillex is finishing one release with What So Not (guessing with just Emoh Instead and not Flume), and a Skrillex x Milo & Otis joint venture has at least been started. Other highlights include deadmau5 trying to pass off as Bob Saget around the 38 minute mark, the three producers rocking out to Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades" (50:47), and the constant verbal distain for Toronto traffic. Sit back and enjoy the video below!

Calvin Harris's recent single "Summer" has undoubtedly become one of the biggest summer songs in the making and has now spun a series of remixes. Following up our recent Club Killers remix, we receive a first look of Dillon Francis's rendition who taking it into the bass side of things with his recent bootleg of the track. This was played out at Edge Of Eden Festival in Santa Cruz and UPDATE: although it might just be a live bootleg weapon, we can hope Dillon might pass it out as a free download at some point. We will keep you posted on a full stream preview and official release as soon as possible, Enjoy!
The first ever iHeartRadio Music Awards went down last night in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium. Out of the star studded appearances none other than Compton local Kendrick Lamar managed to steal the show. Before performing, Kendrick Lamar touches on an intro piece about being 8 years old and seeing Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg recording the music video for their iconic hit "California Love" at a local swap meet. "Legendary," as Kendrick says it was one of the most inspiring moments of his life. This story perfectly transitions into an unbelievable cover of "California Love" as a tribute to the legends and his hometown then moves into his own hit "m.a.a.d. city". Stream the performance below and above all… Enjoy

Tiesto follows up his single "Red Lights" with the second track "Wasted" from his upcoming album featuring vocals from Matthew Koma. The catchy pop influenced single couldn't be more fit for radio crossover yet still manages to maintain the Tiesto spin. The video follows quite an entertaining party of strictly women straight from the 60's. They get extra loose and Tiesto and Matthew even make cameos on the TV. You can expect to hear this one throughout the summer.
This is the second track from Tiesto's long awaited first artist album in over 5 years, A Town Called Paradise set to release June 16th through his own Musical Freedom label alongside Casablanca Records. The rest of the album features collaborations with Hardwell, Krewella, Firebeatz, Icona Pop, American Authors and more, see the full track-list below!
