“The Indy 500 Snake Pit Presented by Coors Light is proud to announce the official lineup for 2016! Global electronic music icon SKRILLEX will headline, along with support by fast-rising superstar MARTIN GARRIX, popular acts ZEDS DEAD, and West Coast hip-hop producer, DJ MUSTARD. The Snake Pit will take place over Memorial Day Weekend, on Sunday, May 29th, during the monumental 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Presented by PennGrade Motor Oil at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.” (via ReactPresents)
The biggest race in the States now has one of the biggest lineups to match it. The Snake Pit, which takes place on the infield of the historic racing site, is becoming one of the main attractions for the race. With names like Skrillex and Zeds Dead for this year, and others such as A-Trak, Steve Aoki, and Kaskade playing in years past, its easy to understand why it’s becoming so popular. May 29th cannot come soon enough: Memorial Day, racing, and loud music, it doesn’t get any better than this. Follow the link here and below to purchase tickets now!

Larry June has been able to gain some good traction within the rapping community, as seen through his previous projects with noted producers like TM88 and Sledgren to name a few. It’s becoming more of when everybody will start listening rather than if people will. This time he joins up with Chicago based producer KiNG KiLo to create a very wavy but hard hitting track. Thinking music, smoking music, riding music; it fits all types of moods. Turn up the volume, especially for that base line, and enjoy.

Simplicity at its finest. The throwback melody, the talking instead of rapping, and back and forth all make for one of his best releases this year. Word is that Chano has his solo project in the works, sans Social Experiment. Give this one a couple listens and reflect, this is real thinking music. Enjoy.

In lieu of his Sunday headlining performance, Kygo decided to release a brand spankin’ new single just in time for the weekend. Offering a little slower tempo than we are used to hearing from the Norwegian, the song still embodies every other release that we have come to love from the tropical producer. At this point, it’s becoming near impossible for Kygo to release anything but good music. Enjoy!
