The 1975 are nothing if not ambitious. Sometimes, their creative aspirations are so lofty that they blow past the also-ambitious deadlines they set for themselves. To wit: Originally the plan was to follow up last November’s massive A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships with another album called Notes On A Conditional Form in May. Spring … More »
Skrillex is for the kids.
Sonny Moore’s origin story as an adopted child living in Los Angeles takes a significant turn when he finds music to be his creative outlet. Smash cut to fronting From First to Last and then fast forward a decade and change to 2019, where Moore has become one of the most esteemed producers in the game. Music brought the once confused orphan punk to where he is today, so its a heartwarming full-circle moment to see Skrillex’s new music production school open for the children of Langa, South Africa this week.
The school is a co-venture with Bridges For Music, which Skrillex and OWSLA have been partnered with since 2012. Across 2013 – 2014, the OWSLA crew hosted meet and greet giveaways to fans in benefit of the school’s construction. Then, in 2015, on Skrillex’s Full Flex Express outing, the tour donated equipment to Bridges For Music along with a portion of the ticket sales from each show to fund the new educational center.
Now, seven years after Skrillex and the philanthropy group joined forces, Bridges For Music’s new music production school is open in Langa, now promising to help emanate a new generation of music out of Africa.

The Rolling Stones continue their No Filter 2019 tour tonight in at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

“Holy Moly” is right, this track is straight up bonkers. Carnage has always been one to throw down straight up mayhem makers, but his latest collaboration with Terror Bass is quite possibly his most sinister track to date. This monstrous production opens with an orchestra before descending into pure bass heavy madness. It’s a jarring production bursting at the seams with serrated synths and floor-shaking bass. “Holy Moly” combines cacophony of trap, dubstep and blistering bass music from the genre’s undisputed heavyweight and a strong follow up to his recent releases “Blitzkreig” and “Slot Machine.”
This one is bound to set some car alarms off.
The music video for “Holy Moly” is equally ridiculous.
Beware of murderous nuns.
