DJ Muggs Premieres music video for his song "Safe"

DJ Muggs, the prodigious DJ for Cyprus Hill, brings forth the new music video for his song Safe featuring the gorgeous and talented Belle Humble.

Known for his experimentation with hip-hop and electronica, DJ Muggs has produced yet another legendary music video for his bass loving fans. Belle Humble’s sweet vocals accompanying the aggressive bass result in a beautiful syncopation.

The music video for Safe, released back in January on the album Bass For Your Face via Ultra Records, is set in a vast Californian desert-land in which an Indian Chief, perhaps a desert mirage, pulsates light and energy around him through his dance. Meanwhile, warrior women clad in Coachella-chic garb, and youngster cowboys wielding bows and arrows observe the enigmatic gesticulations of the Indian Chief.

Altogether a trippy and beautiful video that serves to highlight DJ Muggs and Belle Humble’s unique musical talents.

The Knocks Talk Turntables, Touring, and NYC

Straight out of New York's Lower East Side, indie-electronic duo, The Knocks, has been blowing up recently by putting out their own brand of dance music. Known for their viral remixes of tracks by the likes of Katy Perry, M83, and Dragonette, Ben "B-Roc" Ruttner and James "Jpatt" Patterson bring a sound we can only describe as falling somewhere between retro and new. What we do know is that it definitely makes us want to dance!

Just before a performance at Mansion Nightclub, the two sat down with Joonbug at the Perry Hotel in South Beach to tell us a little bit about their musical roots, their career goals, and what life is like for an artist in NYC.

Inside Electric Daisy Carnival NY: Day 2 Highlights

Saturday, May 19 was probably the craziest day of one of the year’s craziest music festivals, the Electric Daisy Carnival, held at the Metlife Stadium in New York. There was more glitter and face paint than a seven-year-old’s birthday party and with all the neon cutoffs and shades, the scene could have passed for a circa 1992 episode of Saved by the Bell—the crowd was pretty young but there was the occasional Mr. Belding feeling the beats.

The biggest names in electronic, house, progressive, techno, and dubstep music from across the globe were gathered here for one heart-pounding and sweat-dripping weekend. This was a dance music lover’s dream and one might argue that Saturday had the best lineup of artists.

Terravita Talks D'n'B and The Future of EDM

When they're not performing as the electro-bass dynamo Hot Pink Delorean, DJ's and producers Matt Simmers, Chris Barlow and Jon Spero are better known for their bass music hits as Terravita. Having produced tracks that have topped music charts on Beatport (their remix of Tremourz and J. Rabbit's "Sexy Party" held the #1 spot on the D'n'B chart for over a month), Terravita has earned the support of artists such as Bassnectar, Datsik and Borgore.

We got to catch up with Jon and Chris before a performance at Gainesville's Spannk nightclub about their love for D'n'B, the evolution of electronic music and the surrounding culture that has emerged
with it.

MSTRKRFT Release Two New Tracks

About two years since their last full album release Fist of God, Canadian duo Al-P (Al Puodziukas) and Jesse F. Keeler of MSTRKRFT have at last given fans something new after releasing two tracks last week.

"Beards Again," with its metal-influenced guitar arpeggios during the first minute and Ratatat-esque electro-rock during the second minute, the beginning sounds a little atypical of MSTRKRFT, until the third minute escalates to a final kick and reverts back to the MSTRKRFT sound.

"Back In the USSA" is definitely the familiar thumping dancefloor beat and staticky electronic characteristics of MSTRKRFT, and also soaked in laser sound effects with beat-dependent tempo fluctuations.
