ATL’s Heroes x Villains know Trap music. Not the kind of Trap your younger brother is making in his bedroom. It’s the kind of shit that Atlanta has born and bred for years. Put best by the Dirty South duo, “We’re only interested in making music you can fight or strip to.” Not a bad mantra whatsoever, and it seems to be doing them well as they’ve been commissioned by Major Lazer for an official remix of ‘Jah No Partial,’ due out on Diplo‘s Mad Decent next month. Big time roots n bass with this one.
When you go out in the Big Apple, you don’t just go out….you go out with a vengeance. With a constant supply of excellent party options, party-hopping becomes an art that only the most hardy of partiers can properly perform. Well, as a tried and true “party animal” I started my New Years celebrations early and have the battle scars to prove it. Check out my insane NYE weekend after the jump and find out all the debauchery I got up to over the last few days…and don’t miss my chat with RUSKO about drugs, the holidays and his plan to release all his future music for free!
It’s rather alarming how much being a musician amps up a gentleman’s (or lady’s) “sexiness” level, but there’s no denying it’s true. Musicians have been beacons of much affection for as long as music has existed, perhaps (this is my psych major talking here) because of our innate emotional connection to music, or maybe by some grace of god the handsome gene is connected to the music affinity gene. Who knows. Although I’m more particular to band dudes (drummers, specifically) there’s quite a few devilishly handsome gentlemen amongst the DJ/Producer world that are worthy of the ample female attention they get.
So here we are, as a preliminary chart to GDD’s “Best of 2012″…. Three Wise’s and my list of the “sexiest” artists amongst the electronic sphere. Not only are the below gentlemen considerably easy on the eyes, but their personalities, charisma, wit, and duh, MUSIC all add to culminate what I’d like to call “sexy”. Keep doing your thing, boys. Check out the list all the way to #1 after the jump (my votes in blue, Three Wise’s in red) and let us know where your most handsome DJs rank! -Laura. Continue Reading

Major Lazer has become a movement. Amidst touring the world with their massive collective and spreading the noise, Mad Decent chief Diplo and his new partners in crime Jillionaire and Walshy Fire teamed up this year with UK bass aficionado Flux Pavilion to create “Jah Not Partial,” putting the Rasta spirit into a heavy dub driven anthem. The music video for the track premiered today, focusing on the life & times of the group at festivals and road trips far and wide. Oh, Mister Marshall…
Hailing from Stockholm, the 19th year old prodigal producer Phat Deuce as already dropped more than his name on the electronic music scene – and with releases already on Mad Decent project label Jeffree’s and Laidback Luke’s label Mixmash, he’s doing something right. As a token of gratitude for reaching 1k soundcloud followers, he is giving away his big bouncer “SHIT.” I know the name screams class, but fans of Diplo and Mad Decent styles will go ham for this one.
