Everyone knows about Donald Glover’s new album Because the Internet and his history of having emotional problems within himself. Watching this very creative video I think displays the discussion going on inside his head 24/7. Basically this song is about him looking at himself both positively and negatively. At least that’s what I see. It could be interpreted many different ways. Check it out and see what you think. Then go watch the “3005” video with Abella Anderson again.
For those of you wondering what that song was they always played on the live feed, here you go. After each day Ultra put together their best footage with this song and now they have smashed all days together to make one final video to thank everyone for coming out this year. It was one of the most successful years yet but Ultra is in danger of being kicked out of Miami even though they have a long standing contract with the city to stay there for the next couple of years. Head on over to Ultra’s website to help them keep it in Ultra so everyone can enjoy it again next spring. Here’s another article that includes a video about the news behind Miami maybe exiling Ultra of good. Help them out and we’ll see you all next March!
What was already a certified banger from Diplo and GTA just got the dope booty shaking remix treatment courtesy of super duo TWRK. These guys never fail to produce straight dance floor anthems and this track is no different. Laced with well timed hip-hop samples during the breakdown, this remix is definitely that secret weapon in the playlist to amp up the ratchetivity at any party. DJ’s, unleash with caution.
Writing for these “Me & My Headphones” gets more difficult every week. I don’t really have anything to say except listen to the music below. Each week we get tons of submissions and hundreds of songs are released every week. These are the best ones that we found and think will heighten your weekend. I tried to keep it small this weekend so that many it wasn’t so overwhelming and the quality is better. Please let us know what you think but liking the post or sharing. You should grab all these songs and follow the artists that made them. Good shit – have a good weekend! [Update] Fuck it, adding more songs you guys should have. You’re welcome.
I don’t think I can say truthfully that I’ve ever heard a better mix curator. Stephen Fasano, aka The Magician, has been releasing his Magic Tapes every month or so for quite some while. Up to number 41, I have browsed many of his past works, and none of them fail to impress. Once a part of the duo Aeroplane, he split off from Vito de Luca in 2010 and has been taking his own perspective on things, and I love it. Check out all of his other Magic Tapes if you enjoy this one. Oh, and the artwork for all of them is absolutely whack. Oh #2, and they’re all free to download! Yipee!
As you all know, Avicii has had some medical complications over the past few weeks and had to be rushed to the hospital about a day before he was set to perform at Ultra Music Festival. Prays up for Avicii and we hope he gets well soon. Because of his long road to recovery, he again had to cancel two more shows at the famous XS Nightclub in Las Vegas on April 18th and April 25th. The club is baller by the way and is probably one of the biggest party scenes in the world and is a hub for commercial EDM. So who would XS think to replace Avicii? Yah, the Mau5. Deadmau5 has been confirmed to fill in for Avicii’s April 25th date and Zedd will take over on the 18th as well. I expect the night to be filled with more trolling and hopefully some new material as Joel has been hard at work. Last November he surprised the crowd with an epic performance before headliner Wolfgang Gartner but otherwise has been pretty quiet when it comes to Vegas. While some are pretty upset with his shenanigans at Ultra, there’s no doubt that fans will be lining up out the door to see the genius at work. He will also be playing the next day at the Encore Beach Club. I should really move to Vegas.
If you want to hear more about what Joel has been up to. Hit the jump and find out…
For the biggest hip hop fans on the east coast, this is probably the biggest concert around. Drake’s OVO Fest is your other best option but the tickets at this point are incredibly high. Saw some girl actually offer to have sex with someone for good seats. So yah, scratch that. Anyways, the crowds and performances for this festival have been pretty monumental. Hot 97 has been doing this for a long time now and each year they draw some of the best poets of hip hop from around the country. This year will feature two stages and artists like Nas, 50 Cent, Lil’ Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Ink, Childish Gambino, and more will be in attendance. Still not the knockout line-up hip hop fans are looking for but it will be a party all day in MetLife Stadium no doubt. Tickets are on sale now so don’t waste time!
