Friday night Jon Hopkins got dark, hypnotic, gritty, aggressive – it was great. The set, which lasted a little more than an hour, was suspenseful in the best way possible. With three “Korg Kaoss Pads” at this fingertips, he controlled Output’s Funktion One system with long and sharp sounds as he thrusted himself around behind the decks. The energy was contagious and similar to the last two shows, the crowd seemed entranced. That said, while Output wasn’t able to support Hop
OWSLA is proud to present the Phonat Never EP. The title track for the EP is one of the catchiest songs I’ve heard in some time. With a sample that sounds like Curtis Mayfield or something (I googled and couldn’t pin-point it) this is a pure, unadulterated, funky slice of heaven. The second track admittedly loses me a little bit, and the remixes don’t come close to the original (in my opinion) but it’s definitely worth a post. #funk #glitch #phonat #music #owsla #koansound #s
GRiZ seems to be the man these days! And I’m really feelin’ how they did this music video. Most video concepts are tired and I find myself surfin’ the web or reading a magazine while they play, but this one combines the feel of a mini-documentary and keeps it fresh and interesting. Big ups to GRiZ for all the recent success he’s seen. We see you dawg. #prettylights #edm #funk #glitch #biggigantic #music #colorado #soul #GRiZ #hop #boulder #paperdiamond #electro #redrocks #hip

It’s tough writing NEW MUSIC and Beatles in the same title, but D.V.S*’s remix of “Because” is a fresh, new take on a true classic. Peep this…
[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/101589672″ params=”” width=” 100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Remixing The Beatles is serious business. Their music has an unspoken “Do Not Enter Sign” around it.
If you just add some 808’s, claps, and lasers, you’ll (hopefully) be burned at the stake. You really have to go for it,
Pretty Lights just hit us with some cool visuals for “Yellow Bird,” my personal favorite song off the new album A Colormap of the Sun. When he ended his set at Electric Forest with this, I think the whole crowd caught some goose bumps. It is a truly beautiful song. #prettylights #campbisco #lp #gramatik #glitch #acolormapofthesun #drdre #musicvideo #ep #herobust #music #snoopdogg #electricforest #yellowbird #plm #plf #video #hiphop #michalmenert

The only thing that may be dreamier than that album cover up there is D.V.S*’s typography new LP Hit the Clouds Running. It’s the perfect name for the LP, which contains equal parts disco, hip-hop, dub, funk, trap, etc. It’s that PL music without the PL label, which D.V.S* used to release his music on. The LP consists of 10 songs which flow like dream. There are times where it sounds like Phaeleh and others where it sounds like Bonobo, but I’m really only drawing those compar

This past weekend, thousands of people flocked to Raymond James Stadium but this time for a reason other than football and monster trucks. The Sunset Music Festival line up was released months ago and with the help of promoters and local talent across the state it became electronic music’s #1 destination for Memorial Day weekend. With three stages, beautiful Floridians, great weather and killer after parties, this past Saturday was a perfect as our beaches and winter weather.
Dirty jokes aside, this is a cool concept. Skrillex, Diplo, Pretty Lights, Koan Sound, Grimes and Tokimonsta are going to tour Canada via train in July. Not only that, but the Full Flex Express Tour is supposedly going to be mini, little festivals with multiple stages and possibly other attractions. This is an awesome concept, but it also isn’t the first time artists have toured via train. The Grateful Dead did it back in the day with Janis Joplin and The Band. More recently,
Michal Menert unleashes 27 songs of hip-hop tempo, soul-sampling, funk-filled glitch hop that is sure to please fiending fans who have been waiting since the 2010 release of his first LP “Dreaming of a Bigger Life”. The album starts of with a carefully sampled introduction that sets the tone for one of the most interesting electronic music that will be released this year. While the first few tracks sound like the illest hip-hop beats you’ve ever blessed your ears with, Menert
