As the world of future R&B continues to expand, forward-thinking producers are finding ways to distinguish themselves from the pack.
Keys N Krates got with OVO affiliate P Reign for a collab that they say, “was well overdue.” The electro trio had an idea to do a tripped out track…
There’s only one artist coming out of the electronic scene right now who’s embodiment of music, art and culture provokes a movement in itself, that artist is Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo alias The Bloody Beetroots and his new endeavor only drives his pioneering dominance even further.
Israeli DJ-producer Borgore has a knack for stitching together eclectic styles. As a former death-metal drummer, he brings a hard-hitting approach to his electronic tunes – but he’s still savvy enough to collaborate with artists of very different genres. On his new single, “Wild Out,” he brings both a pop singer, Paige, and a rapper, Waka Flocka Flame, into the fold.
Borgore had high praise for her, as well as for his guest rapper. “Working with Waka was like working with the energy of an MMA fight, while Paige brought a serene, silky, angel-like voice and I had to somehow mix them both together. Mission.”
“Wild Out” will be released on October 15th, on Dim Mak Records, and it’s available for pre-order on iTunes and Borgore’s official website. The Wild Out EP will be released later this fall.

Were someone to describe Keys N Krates as an artist who includes Diplo and Annie Mac as friends, one whose schedule includes appearances at festival stages like HARD, Mad Decent Block Party and Electric Zoo, and one who is signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, you might have and idea of who this artist is. But as a live electronic band, Toronto-based trio Keys N Krates, are anything but a typical EDM act.
In fact, as they show on their new EP, SOLOW, out this Tuesday, there’s still a lot of room for originality in a genre typically defined by similarities. Check out the first listen of SOLOW here, on CODE.
Dim Mak allstar Clockwork has just provided us a stellar video to go along with his uplifting and hard-hitting anthem “Surge,” which features some sweet vocals from Wynter Gordon. This track was one of the huge anthems of 2013 and if you made it out to any major festivals over the last six months you probably heard it dropped and perhaps even did a little fist-pumping to one of the track’s bleepy drops. The video echoes the high-energy nature of the track and features everything from friends running through the forest to electrified zombies dancing on some sort of post-apocalyptic beach. Points for creativity on this one… (via THUMP)
Dropping his debut EP on Dim Mak is up-and-comer producer Garmiani who brings his versatility and influences into one big blender to come out with “Rumble”. Featuring the funk of saxophones and voice samplings courtesy of Garmiani himself, this three-track EP is packed with solid sounds that would make any club floor ‘rumble’ into chaotic, dance frenzy. Listen to a VIBE exclusive here.
Even though this track doesn’t come out until March 5th on Dim Mak Records, it’s no doubt that it’s already becoming a true Trap classic. Keys N Krates‘ “Treat Me Right” has been played dozens of times already by the likes of TNGHT and everybody is jumping for the track to be released. Annie Mac had the honor to premiere it during her BBC Radio 1 show this last weekend.
Over the last year, Keys N Krates toured with and played alongside artists including; Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed’s Dead and more. In 2012 the band continued to make an impact on the festival scene, playing major shows at Wakarusa, Ultra Music Festival, Movement Festival, Osheaga and Sonar in Barcelona. The band also produced several hype machine chart topping remixes for Bassnectar, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead and Nelly Furtado.
To really grasp what Tune, Matisse, and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.

This morning Filter Magazine took New Ivory’s recent release of All Around Me a step further and premiered the music video.
The video displays the London based band behind the scenes, hanging out, on stage, rocking out, and much more swapping between color and black and white footage. Filter describes the track as ” hard-hitting” and goes on to say the video is able to capture the trio “rocking out in their own intimate world.”

As featured on RollingStone.com, Datsik and & Infected Mushroom’s “unsettling” new video has made its official world-premiere… Watch the video and read more after the jump.
Magnetic Magazine reached out to Felix Cartal to discuss his ‘life music chart’, featuring all the “Top 5″ tracks, both new and old, that made him into who he is today.
“Don’t Turn On The Lights” is a club-thumping track that features vocals from Polina, a vocalist who’s collaborated with both Steve Aoki and Kaskade. “‘Don’t Turn On The Lights’ is a chance for me to try some more memorable melodies,” says CARTAL.
Are you ready? Are you strapped in? Then turn up the volume and initiate emergency procedures because this is going to blow your roof off. Lords of the jacking, high-voltage dance-floor Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke team-up with the king of crunk, Lil’ Jon, to take you on a bass-thrashing, electro-frenzied ride that’s certain to smash sound systems all over the world. Put your hands in the air and jump up toward the sky – hitting turbulence has never been such an enjoyable rush.
Video & Free MP3: Premiere of the ‘World Class Driver’ Music Video & Free Felix Cartal – ‘Racer’ mp3
Music Video Premiere
World Class Driver
The World Class Driver video was directed by Josh Forbes. His interpretation of the track and inspiration for the video:
The concept for this video came from the lyric “take it real slow”. It sounded like something an old person might say. The next lyric is “so put the pedal to the floor”, which made me think of an old person rolling down the street like a badass in a Rascal scooter.
From there it became a game of “what sort of depraved things can I get old people to do?” and “how can we put an old person spin on it?” So instead of doing heroin, the guy’s freebasing Werther’s Original, and instead of watching some hardcore porn, they’re watching a video of Angela Lansbury giving herself a massage in a hot tub.
This is one of my favorite videos of all-time, even if I hadn’t made it. Apparently it creeps people out, but for me it’s just pure delight. It reminds me of Werner Herzog’s “Even Dwarves Started Small”, a movie about a group of insane Little People who take over their asylum and create their own micro-society. I like the idea of a world overrun by crazy old people. It scares the hell out of me.
