Levi’s, the all-American go-to brand for anything even remotely denim related, has teamed up with Japanese fashion guru Junya Watanabe for a Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Together, they are reinventing the traditional jean jacket. Part of Watanabe’s “Man” line, the jacket above is called “Patchwork” for obvious reasons.

SoCal producer Carlos Serrano has just mixed another mashup of two top vocalists, this time being the UK’s pop/R&B crooner Sam Smith and new album Ultraviolence-releasing Lana Del Rey. You’ve heard our two cents about the latter of before, but she still puts out some decent tunes. Sam Smith, on the other hand, has been lost in […]

With a complex layered approach that’s more DJ Shadow than cornball EDM mainstage, the Denver producer is one of the few talents that has flavorfully blended the world of hip-hop beats with electronic textures.

Everything in its Right Place + All Apologies + Closer mashup

Pretty Lights pretty much runs the game with the free download market, unleashing free full-length albums on people that are easily better than 90% of the for-pay fodder clogging up iTunes archives.
