Hot off the Beatport chart success of “Paradise,” his collab with Chicago house and techno legend Green Velvet, Los Angeles-based Aussie Craig Williams has been creating quite the buzz for himself as of late with his eclectic releases that span the genres of techno, electro, and ghetto tech. Craig recently reached the 10k Likes milestone on Facebook (and is actually now above 12k!) and also has a birthday coming up, so he decided to celebrate and give back something special to thank all of his old and new fans alike to thank them for their support.

Kylee Swenson” directed by Ethan Feldbau for Rank and File Media, and it’s a perfect fluid visual accompaniment to the raw, aggressive sound of the single.

Our good pal 12th Planet did an unbelievably impressive 29 shows in 30 days this year for The End Is Near Tour here in North America. Every day, the bus took him and his pals (Flinch, Kastle, Kill The Noise, Crizzly) around the country, stopping in cities across the continent to bring bass music to the masses. Luckily, director and producer Brandon Parker was aboard the bus — capturing every wild, boring, happy, and sad moment of the month long ride — and today 12th Planet has released the mini documentary. You’d think that 30 days cut down to 10 minutes would be a difficult feat, and you’d be right, but this documentary perfectly grasps the vibe and emotion of this tour. Watch it above and check out the upcoming tour dates for 12th (including his set at Avalon this Friday) after the jump. Continue Reading

Two of our talented friends that live Downtown on the East side of the 405 here in Los Angeles have used their newly found proximity to each other to spend some time making tunes — free tunes that is. Today, SMOG rep Flinch has released a 5-track EP with Scion A/V, and the third track of his release is a very well-done collaboration with AC Slater titled ‘Moonlight.’ Another fantastic track on the Underwater EP includes the eponymous single, which features a beautiful vocal contribution from Kylee Swenson and also gets a remix treatment from the beastly Bare. As always with the lovely people at Scion AV, they’re putting the whole thing out for free over on their website.
