This one was a surprise reminder that Jack Beats still have the second part of their complete album to release! They decided to release them in halves as “mini” albums. For the last half they used a mixtape to showcase what was to come, and with this they’ve done the same. With a title of Progressions, I was expecting a complete mix of new stuff to show how they’ve…progressed. The mix consisted of tracks from their most recent releases through about 75% of the whole thing. Wasn’t til the end that we heard forthcoming material. I guess that the progression for ya.

Using classic psychedelic records from the 60s and 70s, Diplo created a new mix that truly requires multiple dimensions to fully express its brilliant colors and diversely accumulated influence. No tracklist yet, but it’s worth a half hour of your time.

On November 9th Flume will release his debut self-titled album (which you can preview HERE or below). The 15-track LP will be released on the renowned disco/house label, Future Classic.

‘Brainfreeze’ is a two-part all vinyl mix from 1999 by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist (the DJ for Jurassic 5). The duo meticulously handpicked and sampled all sorts of hits from 70’s funk, soul, rock to jazz. Initially, 1000 copies were made and sold at the shows, and another 1000 copies were made and distributed to local records stores in California. Soon after, 7-11 ordered a cease-and-desist letter claiming the album art was a rip-off of their trademark logos.

It’s official; the S.S. Traptanic has hit an iceberg and is quickly sinking. Just like what happened to moombahton, trap is now on an unavoidable crash course into the icy waters of the mainstream. It was fun while it lasted.

The EDM scene is a perpetually forward moving machine. New genres are constantly being explored : old ones forgotten. After three decades of existence, the ever nostalgic disco scene lives on. Hips swiveling, fingers pointing and hands twirling, the disco ball gathers no moss. On the contrary:

Ever since Flosstradamus remixed Major’s Lazer’s ‘Original Don’ earlier this year, there’s been a new genre on the rise. A new style that blends electronic and hip hop in a wave of gritty snares and raw bass. Trap music is the sound of summer 2012.

Both EDC and Coachella are sold out. Slowly, the scene continues to drown under a dogpile of dubstep worshipping fratheads and camera toting, half naked, facebook-beezies. Let me tell you, there was once a time when loud, bass n’ rage bangers were the thing, but those days have long passed. As the summer quickly approaches, the real kids get ready to disco.
