As the Indio dust is finally settling from two weeks of wind, heat and wild spirits across the polo fields, we look back at our favorite moments of this years Coachella Music Festival. With a staggering artist lineup each day making it almost impossible to catch every set we wanted to see, the most memorable performances are all that stand alone from such an incredible experience in the desert. Here are the “best of the fest” we have to give royalty to… Continue Reading
Our friends at Production Club put together one hell of a party in SF a couple weeks ago, with an equally impressive recap video featuring Skrillex b2b Diplo + The M Machine + Destructo + our very own Burn Unit.
Seductive, funky, pounding; Kill Paris has released an EP of futuristic bass with a touch of french (and plenty of remixes). Out now on OWSLA, its kind of like digging through your parents’ Earth, Wind & Fire records with Skrillex and Koan Sound, in the future. Two free downloads and the full EP stream here.

VERSUS was our humble weekly event @ The Central in Santa Monica, CA over the past 2 years. We’re sad to have it come to an end, but we sent it off proper with a biblical b2b set from Skrillex x Congorock x Crookers x 12th Planet, along with Doorly and our very own Bones. We thank everyone for all the memories, never forget what we’ve built.
This Friday, GDD™ fav, Congorock, will be headlining CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood, so we’ve teamed up with him to give away 5 pairs of tickets to the show along with 5 brand new Congorock Ts, modeled by Rocco in the image above.
After Rocco joined in on the unbelievable B2B2B2B set last week along with Skrillex, Crookers, and 12th Planet at our final VERSUS event, we’ve been looking forward to hearing some of the unreleased jams that he laid down to the intimate crowd on a big scale — the Avalon scale.
Enter to win via the Punchtab application below, and make sure to share on social media channels for a higher chance to win! The 5 winners will be notified by email on Friday at 5PM. Continue Reading

The not-so-secret collaborative effort between Skrillex and Boys Noize, Dog Blood, was announced only a few months ago to large applaud. Always cool when two real ground-breakers of an industry come together to create something new, especially when they call it something as cool as DOG BLOOD.
Their new music video for the single “New Order” is just as twisted and chaotic as the track itself, featuring a dude tripping so hard he becomes a literal and figurative space cadet (following with the theme of the EP artwork…).
