Posted by FilthyTaft on November 21, 2013
The title says it all – Dim Mak hooked FNT up with passes so that we could cover the show. Steve Aoki, Borgore, and Waka Flocka made a dream team on Saturday night at the Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco, and they put on one hell of a show. Check out the media gallery below (especially the POV recap video), and make sure to check out the rest of the tour’s stops before you miss it altogether here.
To give you a better picture of what the concert was like, keep in mind that the show was somehow sold out (it was at the Civic Center in San Francisco, imagine how many people it takes to sell out a concert there). Borgore had an incredible opening set, playing his classics as you’d expect (e.g. Nympho). But, he surprised everyone towards the end of his set when he started dropping some unheard trap and moombahton – some HEAVY trap and moombahton I might add. By this point, everyone was completely riled up – but it doesn’t stop there because just when it seemed like a peak, Borgore brought out Waka Flocka who yelled an entire verse to a wild audience.
But hold up – Steve Aoki starts his set at this point. Mind-blowing is an understatement. Between his stage dives, cake throws, bottle pops, and raft rides, Steve Aoki slapped his bangers so hard that his dad’s restaurants almost went out of business (his dad owns Benihana’s). He played every song that you would wish he would play live. And he killed all of them.
Moral of the story is, if you didn’t go, you missed out. Put Aoki on the bucket list.

I’m going to try not to touch on anything that’s going on with Deadmau5 in the media at the moment but I will say that it’s been an eventful few days for him. Between breaking free from the chains of Ultra Records, partnering up with Capitol Music Group, and premiering some insane robotic mau5heads at his show in Vegas, things have really been heating up. There may have been some news about him on various gossip sites this morning, you know, not really sure what that’s all about BUT it seems he took FNT author Sev’s advice and dropped two new tracks to keep the ball rolling. If only every musician could respond to negative press like that….
We’ll see how things play out.
Deadmau5 – Suckfest9001
Deadmau5 – You There?

Attention iPhone users, come this Independence Day, you guys might be a little salty. According to Samsung, they will be giving the brand spanking new album from Sean Carter (Jay-Z) himself to the owners of the Galaxy smartphone for free. You read that correctly. I’m not sure which one is bigger news, the egregious marketing attempt by Samsung, or the album itself. Anywho, it definitely has my cosign…and I’m an iPhone user! Check back soon cause I’m sure some of the singles will be releasing soon. Big things from Hov and the Roc comin soon.

Before everyone gets too excited, I’m obligated to tell all of you that this is not an actual song. The song will come at some point in the next 5 days, and expect it to be on FNT within 7 seconds of its release. This brief video is a small look into Justin Timberlake’s musical mind. This dude has been crazy busy, juggling acting, music, and reviving washed up social media websites. Good to hear how much of perfectionist he is, which gives me hope that his album(rumored to be produced by Timberland), will be nothing less than the best. Check out the black and white minute video above and be on the lookout for a J-Tim drop on SUNDAY.
Also, for the sake of news, Destiny’s Child also announced that they will be releasing a new song to add to their career compilation, “Love Songs.” The track will be produced by Virginia native Pharrell and will feature the last 3 members of DC, the trio of Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Looks like 2013 is the year of the comeback. Be on the lookout for that release on January 29th.

If you’re among the dwindling percentage of the population that considers the Grammys to be a relevant barometer of today’s music scene, this was probably an exciting morning for you. Nominations for the 2013 awards (where we honor songs from 2012; yes, it’s all terribly confusing) have arrived — and in true Grammys fashion, there are some absolute curveballs thrown into an otherwise dull and predictable mix. Chief among them:
1. No nominations for Bieber. Cue mass Belieber outrage. God willing, however, the Biebs will still get tapped to perform, and in doing so will treat us to yet another glorious display of those drop crotch Hammer-pant legging things he so favors.
2. “Levels” was apparently released after October 2, 2011 and thus qualifies for a nomination.
3. Al Walser.
Since we’re assuming that this is the first you’re hearing of Al, we’ve prepared this handy guide to get you up to speed with the man of the hour. Check out the high budget marvel that is the above video, and then join us after the jump.

To live in D.C. is to get some of the very best electronic music acts brought to your front door.
Yes, I realize that some of you may be raising your eyebrows right now (looking at you, New York), but trust me. We’re quietly killing it down here, and it’s all thanks to a little outfit called Panorama Productions, the brains and brawn behind promotion company Club Glow, which has been connecting the nation’s capital with the genre’s biggest names since 1999. This Saturday, things are going to get even more serious: Club Glow will preside over the launch of D.C.’s first EDM venue, Echostage, a roughly 4000-capacity space with an equally massive sound system that will host huge billings every week. For district area dance fans, this is literally monumental. Club Glow has been operating primarily out of Josephine and Fur Nightclub for the past few years, and the recent explosion of dance music has made the need for a bigger and better venue that much more urgent.
The Echostage launch party kicks off this Saturday with Sander Van Doorn and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and the calendar shows no signs of slowing down; Dada Life, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Dirty South, and Tiesto are already lined up, and we’re still in the very early days. If you live in the Midatlantic and are starved of that 128 bpm fix, head over to Echostage’s website and Facebook page and scope the details — because this is about to be big.
