Duo Yellow Claw, did not disappoint in their latest track Stacks which completely defies genre expectations. igos member, Quavo, who is already dominating the hip hop scene with Bad and Boujee which was recently certified platinum. Who knew that the world was ready for a Quavo and Yellow Claw collaboration. Tinie Tempah released Junk Food about a couple years ago and has also started 2017 with three new tracks.

Cash Sinatra has blessed us with a visual for “Count Me Out”, a track from his latest EP Radio Raheem. Sinatra is originally from Brooklyn and is unmatched when it comes to his lyricism and writing abilities. Several tracks from the Radio Raheem EP made their way to our exclusive #KillFridays playlist for a solid three weeks in a row. Needless to say, we’ve been hooked on Sinatra’s flow ever since.
The biggest night in music is back, with the industry’s biggest stars coming together for that honorable nod (except Kanye of course). There were more than a few fails at this years Grammy’s as well as a few wtf moments but if there was one performance that saved the night, it was Beyonce’s. It was a family affair as husband Jay-z and daughter Blu Ivy along with Tina Knowles watched on as queen Bey performed “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles”.

We are thrilled to see that the music festival, Electric Zoo, will be back this year with another amazing event at Randall Island with a twist. Continue reading “Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro will be Returning to New York”
Diplo and AutoErotique have started 2017 off with a bang with their collaboration for “Waist Time”. I’m already anticipating that it is going to be the ultimate twerk anthem at a few festivals this year. “Waist Time” features a significant Caribbean feel, while also staying true to the electro house styling. Diplo is a god in his own right of meshing together Caribbean flavors and creating a contagious turn up vibe so I am not surprised by the feel of this track.
It’s another week which means you are graced with another exclusive #amKills playlist to get you through the weekend! If you’re somewhere in the east in the U.S, you may be experiencing some cabin fever from the random blizzard we had today . Nonetheless , no matter where you areour #amKills playlist is just what you need to bring you up to speed on some new tunes and artists to watch in the EDM scene.
This week we decided to bless you with some special underground artists that are completely changing the game and we even threw in some new tracks from a few of our favorite artists that are more mainstream.
At Decadence Arizona, one of America’s biggest NYE festivals, deadmau5 and Marshmello shared the same line up. Deadmau5 and Marshmello have a significant history of beef so them coincidently having back to back set times created a potential situation of making things worse….(wonder who set that up?).Deadmau5 hit the stage first and the crowd erupted in “boredom” when he decided to switch things up and have a less commercial approach to his discography and take on a more underground feel……or better yet decided to play authentic techno music.
It is yet another Friday, which means we have a dope #KillFridays playlist to get you through the weekend and the festivities of bringing in 2017. As always, we are KILLING FRIDAYS with some amazing music from various underground artists at different stages in their careers. Normally we spend hours digging through our submissions inbox, our DMs and the comments of our social media platforms, however, today we also chose to take a walk down memory lane. We wanted this playlist to be special and to feature some of our favorites from the entire year. This was no easy task, considering we only hand pick the best tracks. We don’t choose artists based on their social media following, their amount likes or plays on their Soundcloud. It’s about picking the most talented artists every week to ensure your weekend is “Lit”. Thank us later.
This year has brought about some extreme changes including the loss of some amazing icons in music. After the deaths of David Bowie, Prince and Leonard Cohen we have to say goodbye, yet again, to another legend. George Michael, aged 53, passed away yesterday morning in his home from heart failure. Thankfully he left behind a long list of work and accomplishments for us to enjoy and remember him by. Let’s take a look back at his career and life.

Christmas has come early for the lucky few who have acquired a chance to score one of the most prestigious awards any musician can ask for, need a clue? The grammy’s of course! The complete list of nominees was released this morning in all 84 categories and it totally gave me the “did I make it on the list?” vibe. If you’re unable to understand why the Grammy’s are so highly regarded allow me to explain. The Grammy’s is basically the olympics for musicians, without all the live competition. And just like the olympics acknowledges damn near every sport, the Grammy’s leaves no musical category behind. I mean, they even have a category dedicated only to the best of the best surround sound albums. Don’t worry though, they only televise the categories that people actually care about.
