Dirtyphonic’s new album Irreverence is fantastic. Showing off a surplus of different types of music within it. Ranging from Drum & Bass to Glitch Hop (The Mechanism) and all the good stuff in between, Irreverence is great. My personal favorite tracks on the album being No Stopping Us Feat. Foreign Beggars and The Mechanism, there is a little bit of everything on this album for anyone and everyone. You can buy the album here.
The wait is over, and Xaphoon Jones’ latest mixtape drop, Xaphoon Jones Volume 3, is now here. The Chiddy Bang member showcases his production talents throughout 16 tracks, reworking some of the more popular records as of late.
Eli has done so many songs this year that he decided to do a compilation on 8Tracks. Like tweeted out:

After trying to find a song worthy of posting, I finally stumbled upon the CDQ version of deadmau5’s song “Professional Griefers” on mau5trap’s Soundcloud page. Although the beginning is DJ tagged, the rest of the stream is the actual song. Deadmau5, along with My Chemical Romance’s front man Gerard Way, creates a melodic song that captures Zimmerman’s signature sound. Look out for deadmau5’s new album >album title goes here dropping on Sept. 25th. Stream and link to iTunes download below (get the iTunes version of Professional Griefers automatically when you pre-order the album)
What? Skrillex with Kanye? Really? Yes.
While Kanye West is currently focused on releasing the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album Cruel Summer, we get some news in regards to West’s forthcoming solo project. It what looks like a collision of hip hop and electronic music, producer/DJ Skrillex recently spoke with The Daily Best, and shared that he and Yeezy have a track together in the works. Following his performance this past weekend in Los Angeles at HARD Summer, Skrillex went on to say:
I did some music with Kanye and from what I know, it’s actually going to be the first song on his new album.
Lets see how good this album will be with Kanye West & Skrillex will be.
After recently disclosing to his fans that he would be taking a break from music for a while, deadmau5 has now just announced the release of a new album.

After hearing this artist on Turntable.fm, I knew TeeTs had a knack for musical arrangement. Wide Awake for the Finale is one of his more recent mashups that uses “Finale” by Madeon and “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry. Doing some research, TeeTs melds both the original and dub mix of “Finale” flawlessly. People may think it is absurd to replace the original vocals of Madeon’s new masterpiece. However, Katy Perry’s voice signifies Madeon’s melodic style in “Finale”. From start to finish, this mashup feels like it should be played at a big sporting event. The middle section defines TeeT’s prowess as a mashup artist. Check out other songs by TeeTs and see the video/download for the mashup below
As an avid listener of music, I try to expand my horizons on every type of music I listen to. In high school, I used to listen to rock and hip hop music. On the other hand, I grew to like electronic dance music and the different variations within that genre. Euphoric melodies and hard-hitting drums are synonymous with EDM festivals around the world. However, a new genre is starting to emerge called trapstyle music. As defined by many music enthusiasts, trapstyle music is the combination of a hip hop drum pattern with electronic dance music synths. The hard-hitting 808 drums, combined with heavy bass tones and electronic synths, give the listener an adrenaline rush similar to dubstep. Artists, such as Flosstradamus, UZ, and CRNKN, reinvented the craze of electronic dance music and drove trapstyle to new heights. However, one artist surpasses all the critical-acclaim obtained for this particular genre. Luminox, also known as Damage, produced many EDM tracks outside the trapstyle genre. However, his niche in trapstyle makes you wonder why he didn’t produce these kind of tracks before. Coupled with crisp hi-hats and bass tones, Luminox takes trapstyle to a new level of EDM music. Check out a couple of his tracks that you might want to add to your DJ set and/or playlist. Like him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter
