  • Harrison - Got A Gun

    ‘Got A Gun’ is the latest effort from rising London-based producer Harrison following his wildly successful collaboration with industry icon David Guetta last summer called ‘Ain’t A Party‘. This major collaboration opened several doors for Harrison, including receiving the opportunity to work with Steve Aoki on the lead track of his forthcoming album ‘Holding Up The World.’ His most recent project, ‘Got A Gun’, establishes an electro house blueprint that effectively showcases Harrison’s vocal diversity and power. This young Englishman is just getting started this year and is sure to bring more fire to the table in the coming months.

    WKND – BTSU (Don’t Fvck With Me)

    WKND‘s Soundcloud is filled with gems. If you are a fan of deep, vibe-y electronic tracks, this young producer definitely has something for you. Continuing with the “love of the deep sounds”, WKND releases “BTSU (Don’t Fvck With Me)”. The track opens up with just an acapella, a vocal sample of Niia’s cover of Jai Paul’s “BTSTU. In the original tune, New York City based singer Niia sings these lush vocal melodies against deep, dubstep like elements. In WKND’s version, he keeps both elements but brings the track closer to the deep house genre. Described by the producer as “emotional deep”, the track’s groove is immense. WKND strives for “that feeling you get when that one magical song gets played”, and he is the first to mention this track is one of his favorites. “This was and is one of my absolute favorite tracks”, says the German producer. He continues, “Now, after nearly half of a year I finally decided to share it with you”. “BTSTU (Don’t Fvck With Me)” is available for free below.

    Yellow Claw, Diplo & LNY TNZ – Techno (feat. Waka Flocka Flame)
    Label: Mad Decent | Release Date: July 21, 2014
    Beatport / iTunes
    Diplo, Waka Flocka, and LNY TNZ are getting nasty on Yellow Claw’s Amsterdam Trap Music series. Their newest track Techno fits the dirty grimy and crazy energy that represents all the different styles each artist brings. The intro is fitting with an eerie melody alongside Atlanta wrapper Waka Flocka’s chanting rap. The track takes a turn and hits some hardstyle elements as well. Right as it hits the drop you’re instantly thrown in to an intricate bass line that rattles and shakes a very rough beat. Diplo has released another notable track recently, and of course, we’re talking about his remix of Lorde’s “Tennis Court.” “Techno” releasing basically at the same time goes to show you that Mr. Pentz really is one of the most…ranged producers in the game, working with basically everyone in the scene. Get a hold of this track now and get ready to feel the bass of “techno.”

  • New Study Shows Free Live Streams Can Improve Ticket Sales
    With the rising number of live events in music, as well as increasing costs to fans to attend said events, the live-stream has become an increasingly prominent tactic utilized by many of the world’s top festivals, including Coachella, Ultra and more recently, Tomorrowland & EDC. While most music lovers would agree that a streamed event can hardly hold a candle to the real deal, the ability to take part in the experience in some way has been hugely appealing to fans as well as artists, who often promote their set times as much for the streaming audiences as those actually in attendance.

  • In episode five of ‘Superstar DJs with Annie Mac’, Diplo, alongside Annie Mac, reveals an exclusive dubplate remix of Madonna’s 1987 hit single, ‘La Isla Bonita.’ For those wondering what exactly a dubplate is, it is an exclusive version used in test recordings that is usually recorded by a dancehall or reggae artist. Having Madonna on board for a Major Lazer dub of “La Isla Bonita” is most definitely clutch, and with the recent rise in collaborations between electronic dance producers and pop artists, it seems almost necessary in order for a record to be a smash hit.

    There has yet to be an announcement on when Madonna’s next album will drop, but we have a good feeling that it’s going to soar straight to the top once it hits the airwaves.
