Watch Joey Bada$$ Deliver Must See Cover Of Prince: "When Thugs Cry" With Full Band

Joey BadaSS Prince

This is awesome. On his last album, we heard Joey Bada$$ evolve as an artist to include his own singing on more songs. Now he’s putting this talent on full display taking on none other than Prince for an amazing new cover alongside a full band and backing vocalists.

Joey joined Australia’s Triple J for the cover on their Like a Version series that’s seen some incredible and unlikely covers over the years. For this new cover paying homage to the late legend, doing his own version of “When Doves Cry,” calling it “When Thugs Cry” adding some fire new verses. It's cool to hear Joey step out of his comfort zone and still sound great as he makes the original his own and doesn't try to be Prince, but still does the original justice. This was a really cool tribute to the highly influential artist. He also did a live version of “Temptation” below that’s definitely worth checking out. Enjoy!

Listen To ZHU Tease Incredible New Remix Of Camelphat & Elderbrook's "Cola"

ZHU cola remix

ZHU is on fire! He’s been teasing new music lately, specifically his amazing collaboration with Tame Impala, and just tweeted a video teasing a new remix of Camelphat & Elderbrook's collab "Cola

The video shows glitchy, black and white imagery while ZHU’s undeniable production is laid atop the original's vocals leading up to his whispery singing kicking in. All this recent activity from ZHU has us thinking he might be giving us some sort of project soon, but he’s so mysterious there’s no saying what me might be up to. Enjoy!

Watch Deadmau5's Techno Alias Testpilot Throw Down On Holy Ship! 11.0: Full Set

deadmau5 testpilot holy ship

If you made it onto Holy Ship! this year, you were treated to some insane b2b sets and rare performances. The 11.0 sailing featured some of the hardest hitting bass-in-your-face artists that electronic music has to offer as well as a set by Deadmau5’s techno side project, Testpilot. Getting Deadmau5 to perform as Testpilot is no easy task. The only other Testpilot sets that have taken place were at Movement in Detroit last year, and most recently, a performance in NYC during New Year’s Eve weekend. 

Back in 2015, it seemed like Joel Zimmerman would have never set foot aboard Holy Ship!. In fact, even when he was onboard, it seemed like he may have regretted the decision altogether (or he could just be trolling). However, we can only thank Testpilot for showing up and throwing down one of the filthiest techno sets we’ve ever heard. 

If you weren’t able to make it onto Holy Ship this year to catch his set, you’re in luck. Thankfully, a Youtube user uploaded the performance in its entirety. Beware, Deadmau5 fans. Prepare to be caught off guard by the deep, dark, techno that is Testpilot.
