Calling all beer pong lovers! The game is about to take on a whole different meaning. Say hello to C5, the company revolutionizing the way beer pong has been played since freshman year of college thanks to their custom beer pong tables.
Joseph Mollo, C5 Founder, began his journey in his garage where he decided that cheap plastic tables wouldn’t cut it anymore. That’s when he took to designing a table worthy of the game. This resulted in a stellar looking table that could hold up, even in the midst of the most intense beer pong games. As seen to the left, the table includes a new shot to the game as well as raised ends to allow for cup and ball storage. C5 is now the largest producer of custom beer pong tables. From bars to college frat houses to your own garage, C5 hopes to make those awful foldaway tables a thing of the past.
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.

Skrillex is bringing the Mothership Tour back this summer, and thanks to the wonderfully innovative--albeit a little nutty-- people at Red Bull, this year's revamped tour will bring a fresh new vibe to this bass-crazy Alien Ride. With support from Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, What So Not, and Milo & Otis joining the tour's lineup, the music will be just as big as Skrillex's new stage production.
A couple of weeks ago, Skrillex continued his Takeovers tour with five different stops in Brooklyn, bringing some impressive friends with him along the way. Such names included, Just Blaze, A$AP Ferg, Clockwork, Lunice and TOKiMONSTA. Nest HQ's videographer, Glenjamn was also present, filming everything that happened on and off stage. And with this footage, they put together a little recap video, which we have kindly embedded for you above. Also be sure to check out the recap video of the San Fransisco Takeover here. And be sure to stay tuned-- videos recapping his jaunts in Barcelona and Amsterdam will be coming in the near future.
If you follow electronic music in any way, then you have to have heard of Holy Ship. Countless amounts of pictures and videos of the event have been posted all over social media platforms since it set sail in January, featuring electronic music household names like Skrillex, Diplo, Disclosure, A-Trak, Zedd, Tiesto, Laidback Luke and even Pharrell. Basically, it was every raver's paradise.
Now, two months later, we have been gifted with a recap video that covers the entire 3 day event. Watch the video above to witness what really went down on the now iconic Holy Ship.
Earlier this month, Skrillex launched his Takeovers tour with the invasion of San Francisco. Packing seven sold out shows into six days, Skrillex made sure his presence was known. Each show was uniquely different from the last, featuring support from artists like Jack Beats, GTA, Claude VonStroke, A$AP Rocky, Louisahhh!!!, and more.
For those unfortunate enough to not make it to one of these spectacular nights, Nest HQ has provided documentation of the first week thanks to videographer Glenjamn. Enjoy the next six minutes as you get a taste of what happened during those six days of takeover in San Francisco.
The boys of Cash Cash came back to native NYC on Friday for one amazing kick ass night and Joonbug got to check it out!
Our feet hurt and we still hear the bass...that's gotta be a sign Joonbug had as great a night as everyone else at Pacha this Friday. The main floor was crowded with a mix of people ranging around 19-25. From hippie tops, eclectic band tees, Pacha gear and some just straight topless... people flooded in to see the trio.
Best friends and brothers Jean Paul Makhlouf, Alex Makhlouf and Samuel Frisch recently killed it with top hit Take Me Home ft. Bebe Rexa. This amazing group has gained international success and recognition for their great dance remixes.
