You didn't expect Skrillex to drop an amazing debut album and disappear again, did you? Ever since releasing Recess, Skrillex has shown no signs of slowing down. And now he has released a music video for “Ragga Bomb,” a track that features the Ragga Twins. The video, true to everything the DJ stands for, pushes boundaries with use of imagination and cinematography, beautifully portraying a post-apocalyptic future where gangs have sick dance offs, ride on scooters, and battle with light sabers. Check the video out above and let us know what you think!

Project 46 at Dream Highbar
Reporting by Michael Poselski
Project 46 and Digital Lab set the perfect pool party vibe with an intimate performance at the Highbar, located on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel. Highbar resembled an oasis with daybeds and palm trees surrounding the sparkling swimming pool. Twenty-four stories high, the location offered a breathtaking 360 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and the electric cityscape of South Beach. The nearby ocean generated a cool tropical breeze that made the warmth of the humidity a delight.
Patrons relaxed poolside and sipped their favorite drinks as Digital Lab took to the turntables. The proclaimed ‘sound scientist’ manifested the chill pool-party groove with tracks like Daft Punk’s “909 Revolution” and Mark Knight’s “Your Love.” As the party started to heat up, he turned up the energy and got the crowd moving with bangers like A-Trak’s remix of “Heads Will Roll” and Swedish House Mafia’s “Leave the World Behind.” Canadian powerhouse duo, Project 46, took over seamlessly and transitioned into an even happier and uplifting mood dropping progressive house tracks like Avicii’s “We Are Your Friends” and their very own collab with Kaskade, “Last Chance.” The party reached its climax as the sun finally tore through the dark clouds and the attendees reveled in the intoxicating bliss of the atmosphere. This party epitomized what Miami Music Week is all about, it was truly a special experience to see DJ Mag Top 100 rated artists play a tailored set in such a pleasant and intimate environment.
You may not want to admit it, but you need R3hab. Everybody does. Friday night at Royale is your chance to finally get some. What makes Royale unique is the classic look and feel its grand staircase, beautiful balcony, and hardwood floors lend to the mega modern nightclub it is known to be. With all this classically ornate furniture and design boasting the past, it's up to R3hab, to bring the club back into the modern world with flashing lights and raging bass.
R3hab is at it again with his new single 'Androids' that is already being called the 2014 festival season's anthem!
Now prepared with his new single 'Androids' R3hab is making his Dim Mak records debut, after working with Steve Aoki on 'Flight,' which was released through Dim Mak Records.
After "Androids" premiered on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix this past weekend, R3hab has officially put the new single on his Soundcloud for all to enjoy.

This Chicago native has been rocking clubs and college campuses all over the country fusing electronic music with hip hop and pop and bringing you some of the coolest mashups. He'll be bringing his talents to Whisper Nightclub this Saturday for an unforgettable night. The party starts at 10 with an opening set from Burnbomb.
Tomorrow, Fabio Cucina Italiana will open its doors for the first time. Last night, we were lucky enough to get a sneak peak and sample some of the delicious cuisine from the fine Italian restaurant and internationally-trained Chef Fabio Hakill.
The brightly-lit establishment is hard to miss at its location in Midtown East. The wide, open windows and white decor almost make the restaurant look more like a gallery from the outside. Walking in, a small bar sits on the left while two small rows of cozy tables line the center of the room. Toward the back, a partition separates more private tables intended for larger parties. Almost everything is white save the padded seats, one wall with an appropriately antiquated Italian quote, and an eye-catching painting on the farthest wall. An uptilted mirror toward the center of the restaurant gives the tight space a more open feel.

When we first heard about the shuffleboard bar over a year ago, we were psyched. Now, the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club is set to open to the public in the next week or so, and we are counting the days until we can check it out.
Owned by Jonathan Schnapp and Ashley Albert, the Brooklyn venue features ten boards, and instead of a kitchen, has a bay designed for food trucks to pull in. So far, the club has reined in Mexicue, Morris Grilled Cheese, and the Kimchi Taco Truck among others, but the lineup will change every night. For cocktails, Royal Palms will carry signatures named after famed shuffleboard players, like the Jim Allen, a tequila drink with creole shrub, mango, and lime, along with cheap fare like rum punch.
