What we would have done to be able to witness Above & Beyond’s Acoustic USA performance at Greek Theater this past weekend. Such is life, especially when you’re off living on the East Coast. But from what we can tell by the cell phone videos we were sent during their show, this was indeed a monumental experience that no DJ set could ever offer. Even so, these poor-quality iPhone clips were so powerful that they brought tears to our eyes as we had instantly become part of “Sun & Moon,” a timeless masterpiece. Before last weekend, nothing felt so right or so pure.
Check out this sweet video for Skrillex and Alvin Risk directed for their collaboration track "Try It Out (Neon Remix)". We get a inside look on the life of these two producers as they adventure and play festivals around the world. A lot of sick visuals on here - from Skrillex kissing a tiger, to them chilling in palaces and clubs, to backstage footage where you'll catch cameos from Zedd, Diplo, Dillon Francis, A-Trak and more. A fun video for a really exciting track. Hopefully this is sign for more to come from these two.
The Ruler of Dubstep, Skrillex, has done it again with his remix of British Duo, Chase & Status’ single “International.” This electric remix has everything we love about Skrillex, and has a very dancehall vibe to it. Packed with laser beams, a sick break beat, and bass galore, the remix gives fans an awesome track to jam to, whether you’re in your bedroom or at a festival. The song with will be featured on Chase & Status’s upcoming album, Brand New Machine, out October 7th on Casablanca. Check out the radio rip of the remix below and let us know what you think!
The cancellation of Day 3 of Electric Zoo left festival goers stumped as they tried to come up with ways to savor the remainder of their weekend. With the official after parties selling out, there were many fans left with nothing to do. However, a few additional artists scrambled to throw together last minute gigs to give Electric Zoo fans a place to spend their Sunday evening. One of the surprise shows had a lineup that was bound to be madness, including: Mark Instinct, KDrew, Pegboard Nerds, Dank, and Subset. Easily the craziest lineup of the evening, there were many who weren’t about to miss out on the event. We had a chance to talk with Alex and Michael, also known as the duo, Pegboard Nerds, earlier that evening before the show. We asked about their latest EP, their tour, and their opinions on the cancellation of Day 3.
Why is this weekend different from all other weekends? Because it's the much anticipated Labor Day weekend! Labor Day beckons in the end of summer as a bittersweet day that also includes an extended weekend of nonstop parties. Check out our roundup of Philly's hottest events to enjoy in the last few days of our warm-weather season.
Happy holiday weekend!

Skrillex and Boys Noize make a pretty damn good team. The tag team ripped up the Ultra Worldwide tent on Sunday, March 17, as they made their debut at Ultra Music Festival as Dog Blood. The set was killer and it was a treat since they were only on the lineup for the first weekend. Needless to say, festival goers had quite an experience to watch Skrillex drop the bass alongside his other half; Boys Noize who brought his signature beats.
