RL Grime, also known as Clockwork, has been leading the way for the trap producers who are slowly making their way onto the scene. The trap sound has been in the works for a while now, with its down south Hip-Hop influences and electronic melodies becoming more and more diverse by the day. Now you got all kinds of trap from fast paced, grimey trap, to chilled out, smooth trap. RL Grime has touched upon almost all facets of the sound, and now drops a new song, "Because Of U" that lays on the more relaxed side of the genre's spectrum. It can be streamed and downloaded via Soundcloud right now.
If you like this, follow RL Grime on Twitter for more updates on his touring and releases, and check out his recent set at the Los Angeles venue, Boiler Room, below.

Flux Pavillion and Dillon Francis have been on each others radar for a while now. They both have come up together in the EDM scene around the same time, and have conisistently been on the same festival set lists. So it was only time for this collaboration to occur.
"I'm The One" showcases Dillon and Flux's signature moombhaton and dubstep styles respectively. Both sounds bounce off each other to making a huge anthem for fans of both rising underground genres. This track will appear on Flux Pavillions upcoming release, Freeway EP. Give it a listen, and let us know what you think.

John Gooch otherwise known for his alter-ego, Feed Me, has finally released their debut album. Calamari Tuesday takes you inside the musical mind of both Gooch and his little green pal. It is hard to put a finger on a specific genre for this project, but what we can say is that he masterfully incorporates all of them together. This 15 track album is a great listen that will breeze right by as all the songs sound amazingly distinct but all still blend into each other perfectly.
"Lonely Mountain" is a track off the album that can be streamed below.
Eminem is back with a new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, which is due to release on November 5. If you weren't informed, Marshall has released the tracklist for the album. It includes the already released tracks, "Bezerk" and "Survival", and now he's dropping another song off the album for us to hear. "Rap God" is a six minute track where Em goes off - bragging and proving as to why he was and still is one of rap's most lengendary emcees. This is very promising track for what to expect on the fortcoming album, after delivering some sub-par albums in the most recent past. Give it a listen and let us know if you think Eminem has got his mojo back.

How excited are you about playing in New York this week--opening for Cazzette and at Pacha?
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.
