Approximately one year after the track’s release, Destructo aka, Gary Richards, has released an official video for “Loaded” featuring Memphis rapper, Yo Gotti. Crowned for tracks like 2016’s “Down In the DM” and 2017’s “Rake It Up” (illustriously remixed by Diplo and Party Favor), Gotti stood as the ideal candidate for another G-house-meets-hip-hop hybrid. The pair seemed to have seen it fitting to honor the holiday party season by giving the record an off-the-wall visual.
Directed by Tuck Tripp as a WorldStarHipHop exclusive, the video trails a distorted camera view of an irreverent, explosive Hollywood house party. There’s some additional, brightly colored animation at work, simulating the trails and hazy visual encircling of a hallucinogenic experience.
From curating a stacked lineup at his inaugural LA-housed All My Friends Music Festival, to collaborating with Chris Lake, Richards has made a lot of noise in 2018. He’s due to kick off the new year with his Let’s Be Friends Again tour.
Party starting comes with the territory for Party Favor. It’s literally in his name. The production guru’s latest rowdy output “Circle Up” finds the booty-shaking producer teaming up with vocalist Bipolar Sunshine for what can only be described as a trippy tropical oasis. The tribal-influenced percussion here is undeniably fun, paired with a dance-hall aesthetic bustling with reggaeton influences and Bipolar’s iconic voice. The amalgamation of multiple genres into one delightfully bouncy and summer stylized production will almost make you forget that winter is well on its way.
Unless you live in Los Angeles, in which case, put your windows down, your volume up, and blast this bad boy for the rest of us.
Now, on October 26, one of his most anticipated shows of the year has arrived, as Gritti will take the stage with Valentino Khan and Dillon Francis at Light & Life’s Halloween Warehouse 2018. To prime attendees for what should be a freaky night in the depths of Brooklyn, Gritti has curated an Orbit Spotify playlist exclusively for DA.
The selection includes hard-hitting tracks from his current rotation, including favorites from his Drive EP, the Boombox Cartel and Flosstradamus team-up “ID,” “Crystal Eyes” from Ekali‘s 2018 debut EP, and more.
What’s better than one surprise Party Favor release? Five.
The trap tastemaker powers the sound of summer’s end with his free, five-track edit pack, Keke Don’t Love You But Party Favor Does. The downloadable offering boasts Party Favor’s previously teased remixes of “Original Don” and “Rolex,” which make their arrival among the producer’s “Whistle Remix,” “Jaguar Remix,” and “Booty Bounce Edit.”

HARD Summer is amidst its 2018 takeover of the Auto Club Speedway, and even if fans are unable to make it to the festival itself, the action will be streamed exclusively via LiveXLive. In addition to streaming festival, there will be backstage content, interviews and more.
Made Event‘s titanic New York-based festival, Electric Zoo, is celebrating its tenth birthday this Labor Day Weekend, August 31st–September 2nd. To mark the momentous double-digit occasion, the wildlife-themed event has added two more headlining artists in Alesso and Tiësto to join the star-studded cast of talent that already tops the 2018 bill: Kaskade, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, and Virtual Self.
Trap producer extraordinaires Party Favor and Baauer have teamed up to produce a bruising single, “MDR.” The track begins with eerie samples of distorted vocals and slowly builds with an uptempo progression until the main melody kicks in. With weighty undertones permeating the sound, Party Favor and Baauer have engineered a vibrant and balanced style that is bound to captivate fans across the world.
Intriguing interludes of drum and bass percussion break up the piece, as the dynamic nature of “MDR” creates a suspenseful air of mystery with each breakdown and climax. With their latest collaboration, Party Favor and Baauer’s “MDR” is bound to be a surefire hit on the dance floor.
Yo Gotti’s massive club hit “Rake It Up,” featuring catchy bars from Nicki Minaj, gets an explosive remix from none-other than Diplo and Party Favor, both of whom are running the show for Wesley Pentz’ own Mad Decent label.
Diplo has a habit of remixing popular hip-hop tracks, and his decision to pull in Party Favor, who is trekking through the US on his Tuned Out Tour, proves to be positive one, immediately kicking off the remix with bass-heavy synths to counter the original, going into a wild, trap-style drop. As fans know, Diplo is not one for simplicity, putting an upbeat, double-time spin on the second drop.
