He adds to the quality content consistently provided by the label, with high frequency synths and a melodic chord progression that showcases his aptitude as a melodic progressive producer. Hats off to Musty for this one.

Preview, Progressive House, Trap | What So Not – JAGUAR (Preview)

Posted by on December 4, 2013

Didn’t really know what to expect out of this track when it first got started in my speakers, but once the ball got rolling, the drop blew my frickin brains out. It’s been a huge year for What So Not and this is the perfect way to top off the 2013 music career. It nicely full of melodies and hooks to please the ear but has a massive eruption of bass and extreme feeling that other songs cannot compare to. It’s a huge staple in his growing setlist for sure and still vibes to that signature What So Not sound so its a win/win for everyone. Look for this December 10th via OWSLA.

FYI | Justin Bieber Filmed By Brazilian Prostitute

Posted by on November 6, 2013

It just keeps getting weirder. Just hours ago, released exclusive video of Justin Bieber purportedly asleep after doing the no pants dance. I’d have a lot of respect for the biebs if he manned up and owned it. Instead, he denies he was even there when pictures tell another story. Isn’t all that surprising. Here’s the sordid plot twist though…

Apparently, the woman in the video is Tati Neves, one of Brazil’s most famous transexual? prostitutes that just so happens to work at the brothel in question. Bieber was said to have picked her because “she looked like she could suck a golf ball through a garden hose.” I’m usually of the opinion that the biebs is bullet-proof. I’m not sure how he’s going to get out of this pickle.

UPDATE: Another woman from Paraguay has tweeted a pile of money thanking Justin. The plot thickens!

Electronic, FYI | deadmau5 gets “back to music”

Posted by on June 27, 2013


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 – You There?

Indie, Interviews, Progressive House | ASTR – Operate (The Chainsmokers Remix) + Exclusive Interview

Posted by on June 20, 2013

artworks-000050858290-zkvjfa-t500x500 It has been roughly four months since my hand slightly grazed my sister’s friend’s thigh. Coincidentally, it has also been about four months since I first heard of The Chainsmokers. Since then, my hand has been many places but none as sweet as that. I have also watched The Chainsmokers grow from two decent looking guys to two excellent looking guys who make awesome music. Their first remix that got my attention was of Jonsi’s “Around Us”. That track… it made me feel for the first time. Sara B, the girl who had a crush on me in eleventh grade, I get you now. The Chainsmokers taught me how to love. Since then I’ve learned to take it, roll it up into a ball, toss it in the air and if there’s not a steady current of wind, I smash that into oblivion.

Picture yourself walking through the city late one night when you see a beautiful girl sitting in a coffee shop eating a plum. She is facing outward toward the street and the store’s walls are glass so you two can see each other. You want to go talk to her but you can’t find the door to get in. Not being able to figure out where the entrance is, you go up to the glass and relentlessly stare at her. Upon closer inspection you realize that she is in fact eating an oddly shaped apple not a plum. “Why are you eating an apple?” you mouth to her. You can hear her say through the glass while turning the apple “no no, this is a plum”. After seeing the flesh of the fruit it is indeed a plum.  You then turn around to go home and find $20 on the ground.

The combination of slight disappointment, confusion, and joy that night brings is what I think of their latest remix.

We also had a chance to talk to them about life’s most important questions, such as “If you were to suddenly wake up in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason and upon looking to the nearest wall saw a hole that has never been there before the size of the middle, cardboard part of a roll of toilet paper, would you stick stuff in it?”. Click past the break if you want to laugh, cry, and be inspired.


Videos | Armin van Buuren Joined on Stage by Dutch King and Queen; Everything Makes Sense Again

Posted by on May 1, 2013

Here is a video of Armin van Buuren being joined on stage by the King and Queen of the Netherlands, who made an impromptu pit stop at this apparent rave while probably en route to a ball and/or palace.

This video is perfect. Several things:

1) There are currently multiple comments on YouTube alleging that Armin is, in fact, the real King in the North King of the Netherlands and the other guy’s an impostor. Interesting theory.

2) I’m assuming that this is the Dutch equivalent of the Obamas getting on stage with Skrillex at Ultra. Awesome; also excellent visual.

3) In that vein, I’d really like to live in a country where Armin van Buuren is backed by a symphony orchestra and kings and queens come out to wave to the adoring populace as the dulcet sounds of trance and violins fill the air. Armin van Buuren: Dutch National Treasure.

4) The Queen is kind of a babe, no?

5) Coolest royal family ever. Sorry England — until Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are photographed waving glow sticks at Ministry of Sound, I don’t want to hear about it.

BREAKING: I’ve just been informed that this is a video of King Willem-Alexander’s inauguration, where Armin was specifically asked to perform. However, what King Willem-Alexander isn’t telling you is that the whole inauguration thing was actually a ploy; he really just wanted to see Armin drop his Dead London edit of “Stresstest.”

Videos | Behind The Scenes: Tum Tum’s “Yeah Doe” Video

Posted by on July 12, 2012

Let’s get something straight. I’m a Dallas guy. I grew up on Big Tuck and Tum Tum. They’re nothing short of legends in the city, and it’s good to see them making music together. Although I couldn’t make the video shoot (I’m sorry Bric!) the good folks at HULK ENT were kind enough to release a behind the scenes look into the highly anticipated video featuring B-Hamp, Dorrough, and a few lady friends. Although Big Tuck wasn’t on the original track, it seems we may just be getting a classic verse from the purple hulk. Could this be the record that unifies Dallas and puts the ball back in our court? I say, Yeah Doe!
