The Zeds Dead boys team up with Major Lazer earlier this year to create this collosul moombhaton/dubsynth track. With vocals from the legendary dancehall artist, Elephant Man, "Turn Around" has 'Twerk' written all over it. This song has been played at both contributors' sets all summer and has now been released for stream and free download! Put this one on the top of your playlist and you'll be sure to catch some twerking going on at your next party.
New York City just had the most epic hour lunch break with The Jillionaire and Walshy Fire as they took over Highline Ballroom today. Flavorpill presented the Absolut Lunch Break for New Yorkers that wanted to get out of the office and turn up at 1pm. The free dance party offered free Absolut mixed drinks, neon geek eye glasses, glow stick tubes, and a to-go lunch bag on the way out and back to work.
Ok, free things are lucky, but we said this is the the luckiest 13th, and here's why: The Jillionaire and Walshy Fire will be DJ-ing the event.
The lunch party is free, however, if you can, take those couple of bucks you would'a spent on lunch and donate them to the on-site reps of the Food Bank for NYC--just $1 will feed five New Yorkers in need.
Tomorrow, join us for lunch and dancing, and take back a great story to your office (or class). Remember to RSVP, since that's the only way to reveal the location!!
For the first time ever, Mad Decent Block Party invaded Merriweather Post Pavilion in the suburbs of Columbia, Maryland on August 2nd. Hundreds of cars were parked in a grass field surrounding the venue, which was the ideal location for attendees to blast music and tailgate. We saw all sorts of attire while we sat in our car sipping from red solo cups: fluffies, knee socks, and bra tops that were way too small. There was a pretty even assortment of ravers, hipsters, and what you could call the wannabe “flower children” of our generation. What’s unique about Merriweather is that it contains a gigantic lawn that accommodates the people who chose to bring blankets and lie out on the field. Not only that, but as at any other show in the DMV area, we saw ample Maryland pride that was manifested in multiple people waving the Maryland state flag.
The interview was doomed from the beginning. “Diplo has landed. Along with the other two people that make up Major Lazer,” Kennedy began in her poor excuse for an “interview” with the group. She clearly had no idea that Diplo is Major Lazer (and the sole executive producer of the project), while Jillionaire and Walshy Fire are simply the co-stars of the group, aiding with production and live shows.
Not only is Kennedy’s laugh irritating, but the way she presents herself throughout the interview is completely unprofessional, and not in an endearing way. Within the first minute and a half she manages to call Diplo a “mothertrucker,” and then mocks him by saying, “I’m a DJ, cuttin’ and scratchin’, what what?! That’s what I do!” .....Uh, okay.
