SKRILLEX Video RAGGA BOMB combines Elysium with Star Wars and it works

skrillex-ragga-bomb-video-600x337

Skrillex is known for his love of science fiction. He uses samples from anime, science fiction and horror films to create his heart pounding dubstep, so when he teamed up with  South African director Terence Neale, for his latest video “Ragga Bomb”, you know  it’s going to be magic. This video for “Ragga Bomb” featuring the British jungle mainstays Ragga Twins , is highly imaginative sci fi, to say the least. The video was shot in Johannesburg and Alexandra, South Africa and even features a lightsaber battle at the end. I don’t know if George Lucas is gonna come at him for this, but my guess is that he will (cause George Lucas can be a dick like that).

Ragga Bomb can be downloaded off of  Skrillex’s latest release “Recess” now on Itunes and Spotify .

U.K. producer The Magic Cube has done it again with another hard-hitting track! The Magic Cube a.k.a Kevin Tye, has been hard at work lately with the recent 2013 release Starfighter EP and now he’s teamed up with Arizona based producer Zak Hughes , for a groundbreaking track that’s guaranteed to be the soundtrack for anyone needing an aural fix for something extreme. DUST released on Critical Imprint, is a heart throbbing, electronic soundtrack for something mean and it delivers on all points. With beats and basslines reminiscent of amazing artist like Tricky, Aphex Twins and Prodigy, DUST fits in there nicely and up’s the ante with genuine inventiveness.  The track is available now on Itunes and Critical Imprint

Electro artist The Magic Cube breaks into 2014 with the Dubstep/Rock crossover single “Dust” featuring vocals by upcoming electro artist Zak Hughes. The empowering track features driving beats, sizzling dub step style baselines and hard rock guitars cemented by Zak’s cunning lyrics of hope and challenge to the status quo.

Listen to PHANTOGRAM’S Black Out Days

Sharing the crown with other New York-based, synth pop duos like School of Seven Bells, Sleigh Bells and Purity Ring, PHANTOGRAM, Josh Carter (vocals, guitars) and Sarah Barthel (vocals, keyboards), are carving quite a reputation for themselves in the electronic scene. Their 2011 release “Night Moves” is a catchy variant on the sometimes too abstract “blips and blops” that have emerged out of the Big Apple. Instead they deliver a clever blend of hip hop, 80′s and pop. Today they released a new single called “Black Out Days” and although the production is tight, it’s not one of my favorites, but it’s still a worthy track and worth a listen. They still haven’t released word on when we can expect another album, but I think it’s safe to assume, they are in the lab right now.

NEW “SQUARE PUSHER” VIDEO “DARK STEERING” SHOWS US THAT YOU CAN’T EVER HAVE TOO MANY LIGHTS!!

There’s no way in the sixties, musician’s could have ever imagined that one day people we would attend shows by the thousands that featured performers at their OZ-like helms surrounded by a horde of music and lights, alright maybe Jim Morrison. Fast forward almost fifty years later and you can find ravers gathered by the thousands to watch luminescent euphoria. This video by SquarePusher showcases just that. How far we’ve come and how far we still intend to go with light, music, performance etc. What I’d love to see and I realize I’m getting off topic, but B.o.C and SquarePusher do a world tour, but I think that would be highly unlikely considering B.o.C release an album once every solar eclipse. Here’s what Square Pusher had to say about Dark Steering and the concept behind this amazing video.

“For a while I had apocalyptic nightmares about trails of nuclear missiles in the night sky. So I aimed to recreate that strange combination of exhilaration, terror and sadness both visually and emotionally through this piece. It lead to the idea of a spacecraft leaving earth at vast speed to escape, but oddly the music also made me think of it flying through a library. So I generated the visual aspect such that, as the piece progresses, it seems as if the viewer is ever accelerating through massive corridors of books.”

“Books or Fremont Street on acid…but you don’t have to take my word for it (Reading Rainbow Bitch!)

GO BEHIND THE SCENES OF M.I.A’S CRAZY “BAD GIRLS” VIDEO!!!


This is probably the last post I’m doing today (I’m lying of course), but it’s one that will leave you all warm inside I promise. Earlier last week I posted two videos from the Somesuch&Co. Camp, well now I’m back and thanks to the good folks at “Vice Magazine” we have some exclusive behind the scenes footage of M.I.A’S “Bad Girls video directed by Romain Gavras.In it you get a good grasp of the chemistry on the set of this epic video. Pay particular attention to the cats drifting on two wheels while drinking tea and smoking a hooka. Believe!

“GRIMES” GRACES THE FRONT COVER OF “DAZED AND CONFUSED”

For twenty three, this girl is too talented. I was a fan ever since I bootlegg…ahem…bought her album a couple of weeks ago. She reminds me of that one girl in high school, shy (except around Thespian’s), smoked heavily, vegetarian, but had exceptional taste in music. Ring any bells? The youth will not be wasted on this one though, oh no, she has plans for world domination that or epic dumpster diving. Below is an exclusive video by director Alex Craig, featuring the bohemian tinkering with her toys. In it she talks about her music, her clothes and hygiene.By the way pick up her new album it’s filled with danceable shit. Enjoy!
