Canadian emcee Drake recently celebrated his 28th birthday, and he unexpectedly gifted us with three new tracks over the weekend. Included was the previously leaked ‘How About Now’, as well as R&B slow-burner ‘Heat of the Moment’ and the absolutely banging ’6 God’ – the latter of which is already being added to club playlists. There’s no word if these tracks will be featured on his upcoming album View from the 6, but all signs point... read more

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that Foo Fighters’ eighth album Sonic Highways is on the horizon. After revealing album opener ‘Something From Nothing‘ and an accompanying video, the band have gone ahead and released the album’s second track, ‘The Feast And The Famine’. Yes, the band sound very hungry on this one –... read more
Mary J Blige may be New York’s queen of R&B, but she’s taken a totally new direction for her upcoming album The London Sessions. As you can probably tell by the title, the project sees her collaborate with young UK talents such as Sam Smith and Emeli Sande, while Disclosure have jumped on production duties for the single ‘Right Now’. Given Disclosure’s well-known love for all things hip-hop, it’s really no surprise that they’ve given Blige... read more
While over 10,000 were in attendance at Skrillex’s recent gig at Navy Pier in Chicago, 16 punters were transported to nearby hospitals – most for drug overdoses.
Andrew Bazos, who oversaw crowd safety at the gig, said that “If their parents were there, they would have gone home with their parents. It’s not fair to make the promoter take care of kids who don’t know how to behave… They’re young, and they’re often irresponsible.”
Skrillex has previously... read more
Two bowling alleys that act as live music venues have been visited by a man who has since been hospitalised with symptoms of Ebola.
Dr. Craig Spencer recently had an extended stay in Guinea and returned to New York, visiting The Gutter & Brooklyn Bowl. Hours later, he was isolated at the Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan after suffering from a fever and nausea. The results are yet to be conclusive as to whether this actually is a case for Ebola, but The Gutter has since closed its doors... read more
Iggy Azalea proved that she can dominate the pop sphere with her ridiculously catchy single ‘Fancy’ earlier this year, as well as huge trap anthems with her barrage of Southern-flavoured verses and allegiance to T.I. Now, she tackles a bumping electronic instrumental for ‘Iggy Szn’. It’s definitely a little more eclectic than what we’re used to hearing from Iggy, but she does the beat justice – we can imagine this being spun by Diplo & co. in dance... read more
After going multi-platinum with their anthem ‘High’ earlier this year, Peking Duk have released another single in ‘Take Me Over’. It’s a collaboration with fellow electronic bros SAFIA, whose more indie-tinged vocals offer a welcome diversion from Peking Duk’s usually rambunctious approach. However, don’t be fooled: This will still get the dancefloor heated, but the silky falsetto smoothes out the pulsating production. The video features explosions and... read more
Earlier this year, Flight Facilities dropped a bombshell on your ass when they revealed that their debut album Down To Earth would be arriving in 2014. While they’ve already earned legendary status for their insatiable summer anthems and stellar live show, this release is set to take them into the stratosphere. Oh yeah, did we mention that Kylie Minogue is on this record? Huge. With Down To Earth dropping today, we chat to Hugo from the duo to talk dream vocalists, Client... read more
