Jack Beats make sure not to leave out any of their friends in their new "Beatbox" music video, released today through Thump. Who knew the music industry was made up of so professional beatboxers? Of the many people who make an appearance to show off their lip syncing abilities, included are Diplo, Dave Nada, Skrillex, Benga, Annie Mac, Flux Pavilion, and many more. The catchy track is made up of the duo's signature beats and proves to be quite the monster.
"Beatbox" will be released via OWSLA on Jack Beats’ Beatbox EP March 18. The track is also found on the duo’s FABRICLIVE 74 compilation that is to be released on the same day.
In the meantime, happy beatboxing!

Whether it's creating incredible, genre-transcending music or designing spectacular visual installations and effects, The M Machine continue to be a group that explores the vast reaches of musical space to find new and unimaginable originality in their productions.

If the name Innerpartysystem doesn't ring a bell, then it's highly unlikely you're familiar with former member Kris Barman, now known as Wuki. Since the electro-rock group announced their hiatus back in 2011, Wuki has been tinkering with the electronic music production that made songs like Innerpartysystem's 'Don't Stop' vastly popular, and transforming them into a unique blend of booty shaking break-beats with clever hints of electro sprinkled in for good measure. After a steady stream of bootlegs, remixes, and iintermittent releases on Teenage Riot, Warpath, and Sex Cult, Wuki made his OWSLA debut January 7th with his new Framework EP.
Straight from the UK comes the dubstep DJ and producer Chris Mercer, also known as Rusko. This time he’s invading North America on his Lift Me Up Tour with Roni Size, Tonn Piper, and MC Dynamite. We had a chance to talk to Chris Monday night as he kicked off the tour with a bang in Gainesville, Florida. With a heart full of passion, Rusko discusses music, life, and friends.
How’s the tour going so far?
Awesome! This is the first day we’re doing with Roni. He just got here. I’ve been kind of bummed the past couple of days. All of our stuff just arrived from L.A., so I finally got all of my clothes, my Xbox, and my stash. I was kind of stoked that everything arrived. We’re a couple of days into the tour, but today feels like officially day one. The full tour crew is here, all the stage stuff is here, all the lights, everything is in place now. I’m counting this as day one. It’s going to be rocking.
Skrillex will be joined by his stacked lineup of beatmaking bosses including electro-maestro Crookers, Godfather of dubstep 12th Planet, and bass-in-your-face Congorock.

With such an impressive roster of seasoned turntablists, the OWSLA lineup promises attendees a face-melting week of musical mayhem.

Although the West Coast producer, born Jeff Montalvo, has recently broke out on the scene, he has made quite the impression with his progressive dubstep bangers. His career saw a breakthrough the very same way. It was ignitied with a huge Beatport remix contest win when he reworked Above & Beyond's "You Got to Go" last year, and soon after, he made his debut for Skrillex's OWSLA label.
Los Angeles, the year 2054. An uncontrollable virus simply called "The Noise" has ravished mankind as we know it, leaving the once bustling entertainment capital a dystopian hell hole crumbing in ruin. The fate of all humanity rests on the shoulders of only the remaining few, who must now fight their way through hordes of the infected zombie like creatures to get to the "overlord" that controls them. All the while an insanely epic french electro inspired dub-step beat syncs up perfectly to the soft-florescent neon gore fest to tell the story of our heros in a way words could never dare.
