Wiley, Slum Village, Broken Bells, Dog Blood, Kove & more

We just shared Zeds Dead Somewhere Else mini-mix last week, but it looks like the Toronto duo is keeping busy. They hit up the BBC’s popular Diplo & Friends showcase this Saturday night to drop a one-hour set of off-kilter beats. From bouncy bingo 2-step to house to plenty of lower frequency bass tracks, Zeds Dead mix […]

Festival hits the Whittier Recreation Center August 2nd & 3rd

Time to get HARD for summer at the Whittier Recreation Center this August 2nd & 3rd. Equipped with five stages and a serious lineup, HARD Summer will feature a very comprehensive sampling of roof-raising knob-twiddlers including: Jack U (the new Skrillex & Diplo superduo), Axwell, A$AP Mob, Tiësto, Dillon Francis, NERO and Disclosure, along with A-Trak, Baauer, Martin Garrix, Pusha T,  Maya Jane Coles, […]


Diplo selects the best and bangin’est tracks from 2013 for a year-end sonic review. Fittingly, he starts the obese two-hour mix with Baauer’s game changing “Harlem Shake”, arguably the biggest most overplayed track of the year.

Los Angeles surf & psych-rock built for coastal living

Los Angeles-based Allah-Las are just days away from releasing their debut self titled album on Innovative Leisure, home to fellow LA-based artist Hanni El Khatib (who we’ve interviewed HERE) and Nick Waterhouse — who also happened to produce Allah-Las’ album. The quartet encompasses everything you’d hope to hear from a Los Angeles-based band as they […]

Hide a headache-curing — or causing — pill in your cufflinks

Besides looking like ecstasy pills, these cufflinks seem designed for the Austin Powers of a generation just as into pills as they are into acid. Like in a movie made in 2042 with whoever is going to be the Mike Myers of the day playing Skrillex crossed with Katy Perry. Made of nylon plastic injected […]
