Every couple of years, there is always a musician who's name you can not escape. Sometimes for good reasons and sometimes for bad. But this past year has been one of the most succesful years for Pharrell Williams - the guy who just can't seem to do anything wrong when it comes to music.
His grip on the popular music charts will only strengthen with the upcoming release of his solo album, G I R L. Below is the teaser trailer for the album which is due to release on March 3rd. Looks like we got a masterpiece coming our way.
The Glitch Mob's sophomore album, Love Death Immortality, truly showcases how much the band has grown since their debut full-length album, Drink The Sea, in 2010. Released on their own Glass Air label, Love Death Immortality walks the tight rope between light and dark, playing both sides perfectly against one another in a tug of war between infatuating melodic leads and deadly bass line rhythms that transcend what everyone else in the electronic music scene is doing.
With love having been so recently in the air, Ellie Goulding decided she would spread the love with an exclusive "Goodnight Valentine" mix for Annie Mac Presents Free Music Mondays. The almost hour long mix contains a variety of sexy and sultry hip-hop, R&B, and electronica. Tracks include everything from Mariah Carey to James Blake to Big Sean to The Weeknd, all hand picked and mixed by Ellie Goulding herself. What stood out most from this mix was the very last track, 'Because,' her latest collaboration with Skrillex.
Miami Music Week 2014 is getting closer and closer, which also means that Ultra Music Festival is almost here. Back in its single weekend format, after expanding to two last year, and with big names such as 3LAU, Carnage, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Martin Garrix, and Paul Van Dyk already announced in phase 1, Ultra Music Festival , this coming March 28th to March 30th, is shaping up be another well deserved notch on Ultra's festival belt.
On Saturday, February 15th, Alex and Drew, aka The Chainsmokers stopped by Webster Hall to headline its weekly Brite Nites event. The duo are currently on their #SELFIE tour and the jam packed crowd was more than ready for them. Gigantic sized posters of Alex and Drew's faces and some various creative posters were spotted floating around the crowd. We had the chance to briefly meet Alex and Drew before they went on stage and needless to say, these guys were a class act towards anyone who came up to them.
As soon as The Chainsmokers took over the stage, there was no denying the booming and pumping basslines filling the speakers. Their presence has been bestowed to the crowd and the reaction from the crowd was insane. They played roughly a two-and-a-half hour set packed with the hottest club tunes mixed with deep house sounds. Of course they played their hit track, '#SELFIE,' which instaneously had the crowd roaring and dancing along to it. Lots of underground sounds were being played, but it was certainly a refreshing sound compared to DJs who only play big room favorites.
The Chainsmokers killed it! Vibing greatly to the New York crowd; we can't wait to see what these New York natives have in store for us next.

Skrillex is absolutely kiling the game right now with his Takeovers Tour. He started off in San Fransisco playing seven straight sold out nights, then came to Brookyln for five nights, all sold out as well. The last of show of his Brooklyn venture landed on Valentine's Day, at a Secret Warehouse at the very tip of northeast Brooklyn in a warehouse located at the end of a dead end, in a neighborhood we couldnt tell you anything about... but we can sure tell you about the show.
