Come August 21 the windy city will be taken over by the one and only Diplo, and a handful of supporting acts, for Chicago’s take on the Mad Decent Block Party. The venue for the event is the First Merit Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island which is located just south of the city on a narrow strip of land along the coast of Lake Michigan, making it a very unique and sought after location. This is one of the many venues that is home to a Mad Decent Block Party this summer… Check out the entire schedule of Block Parties here.

Aside from the music that they publish, the label is most known for throwing “Block Parties” in various major cities throughout the US. These Block Parties are single day festivals showcasing numerous acts affiliated with Mad Decent and are known for exposing upcoming talent to the public. Mad Decent Block Parties have been a major success and only prove Diplo’s dominance in the industry.

The bill of artists for the Chicago Mad Decent Block Party consists of Diplo, Drezo, GRYFFIN (DJ Set), Justin Martin, Kesha, Oshi, Rae Sremmurd and an additional surprise guest that has yet to be announced. As you may notice, this is a very diverse group of performers that are sure to make this an unforgettable night.

With festival season in full swing, it seems like there’s a brand new festival with an impressive lineup popping up every weekend. Like most people, it’s never easy for me to decide which festival is worth my money, especially with so many great festivals to choose from, and unfortunately, festival scheduling just got a little harder because Billboard is entering the festival space with their very own Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival. The premise of the Billboard’s festival is to feature artists on their Top 100 charts, and with headlining performances by pop stars like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and Nicki Minaj, there will be no shortage of top 40 music. Dance music stars like Skrillex, Kygo, and Axwell /\ Ingrosso are all slated to play the Billboard Hot 100 Festival as well. Information and tickets to the Hot 100 Festival are available for purchase here.

Saturday, Monday - The Ocean (Dirge x Howl Remix)

Dirge and Howl are, apparently, two producers from Australia. There is no information anywhere about these guys other than that. However, I can share that in my short yet magical correspondence with Howl, he is almost always super turnt. He is also 18 and managing to create awesome stuff. There are only two songs on his Soundcloud and they are both below because they are both great. This is somebody you should keep an eye on because I can see him getting big fast.

Hip-Hop | Dylan Owen – The Window Seat

Posted by on July 30, 2013


After a one year long hiatus, the prodigal son has returned. Dylan Owen is back ladies and gentleman, and from my insider information, he is here to stay. After hearing this song, I am convinced that he’s here to stay. The Window Seat is a slow, laidback beat that allows Dylan to tell his story. I know it’s a cliche comparison, but Dylan really is an artist, using the beat as a canvas, to paint a picture with his words. I couldn’t be more impressed with his coming back track, but I know this is only the beginning. Dylan Owen will do big things in the music world, and Fresh New Tracks will always have the first scoop. Grab the track for free courtesy of Dylan, and be sure to check him out on Twitter and Facebook.

Posted by on March 23, 2013


With the full court press being put on by Columbia hyping up this album all over the web and all over the world, putting up posters and slowly releasing small bits of relatively inconsequential information about Daft Punk’s 4th artist album, we can finally say we are the stretch run of the release. The album “Random Access Memories” will be released on May 21st and lets pray there are not any last minute delays. There are no names for any of the 13 songs, but you have the lengths of each of the tracks. You can pre-order the album on iTunes and until then listen to the 15 second clip from the SNL commercial below or listen to it in a 10 hour loop.
