WUKILEAKS is the (now-not-so-hidden) gem account for DJs across the Internet—a project that started approximately three years ago by Kris Berman—better known as Wuki. The Denver-based producer started off with mash-ups of Busta Rhymes, the Six Flags-famed “We Like To Party” theme, and more, all of which instantly exploded into DJ sets everywhere. One year ago, Berman fused Major Lazer‘s breakout hit “Pon De Floor” with Daft Punk classic “One More Time.”

Now, Wuki gives fans a new take on another masked-robot classic, teaming up with Ship Wrek on “Techno Logic.” The rising LA-based duo are making a ton of noise with their distinct brand of house, adding that flare to the grooved-out bass-line on this new collaborative homage to the French visionaries. Of course, listeners are also welcomed by utter craziness from Wuki under the beloved Daft Punk sample.

Catch Wuki on a packed summer itinerary, hitting Electric Forest on June 29 after a string of shows in Australia, followed by a performance at Yellow Club in Bangkok before stops at Red Rocks (August 10 with Alison Wonderland) and Electric Zoo August 30.

10 songs to listen for during Diplo’s Belly Up Aspen extravaganzaDiplo 2017

Belly Up Aspen is none of Colorado’s premier winter music festivals, showcasing a diverse range of genres and artists of every caliber. Their calendar was stacked high in 2018 with memorable performances by Keys N Krates, Nora En Pure, Lost Kings, and Cold War Kids taking the same stage as superstars like Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, deadmau5, and Stephen Marley.

To top off a historic year, Belly Up will bring the one and only Diplo to the stage on December 29. From side projects Silk City and LSD, to releasing his first solo EP in four years, Wesley Pentz has had immense success this year, which all the Aspen Mountain skiers can celebrate. Here’s a playlist of ten songs attendees should look out for during the set:

1.Silk City, Dua Lipa feat. Diplo & Mark Ronson – “Electricity”

One of Wesley Pentz Jr.’s greatest moves this year was teaming up with legendary producer Mark Ronson. Silk City instantly popped into the spotlight, bringing in one of 2018’s hottest artists in Dua Lipa for this one. The track was pushed further with an “electric” music video.

2. Ape Drums – “Me Solta”

Miami-based producer Ape Drums is no stranger to dancehall, a genre that Diplo has coined from his Jamaican influence in Major Lazer. Drums is also a friend of the Mad Decent imprint with several features on BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends. Here’s his latest release “Me Solta,” earning a SoundCloud re-post from Diplo himself.

3. LSD feat. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth – “Thunderclouds” (MK Remix)

The famed trio LSD made a lot of noise this year, with four official releases and an innovative, unique sound. “Thunderclouds” marked Diplo, Sia, and Labrinth’s third work of art, receiving a groovy house edit from MK. The Miami-raised producer has a tendency to go deep in his sets, making this remix a prime candidate.

4. Wuki – DADADADA (Holiday VIP) [wukileak]

It’s always easy to throw Wuki in the mix. The New Jersey-born producer already performed a “wukipediamix” for Diplo and Friends and has been heard in a myriad of past Diplo/Skrillex sets (having released tracks on Mad Decent and OWSLA). His wild reworks brought him into the spotlight, most notably his edit of Busta Rhymes’ “Look At Me Now” verse. Although, this one comes with a holiday twist primed for a pre-NYE show.

5. Wuki – Pon De Time [wukileak]

Here’s another gem from Wuki’s endless list of goodies on his WUKILEAKS SoundCloud page. This one stems from one of Diplo’s earliest tracks “Pon De Floor.” Mashed with the fan favorite “One More Time” from Daft Punk, is there even a question of whether or not he’d throw this in?

6. Diplo feat. Lil Pump, Juicy J, Famous Dex, French Montana – “Welcome To The Party”

 

This track serves as a perfect bridge between and hip-hop, featuring rap goliaths like Famous Dex, and fresh-in-the-limelight rapper Lil Pump. This electrifying single is sure to show it not only connects genres, but also jump starts a vibe. “Welcome to the Party,” was featured in Deadpool 2, one of the highest grossing movies of 2018, and Diplo would start off his farewell to 2018 with his imprint on one of the most impactful soundtracks of the year.

7. Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch – “Sweet Nothing” (Diplo & Grandtheft Remix)

If Diplo is anything, it’s that hard to pin down, transcending expectation and genre. He’s an enigma that’s always working on some new project, but staying true to his nature. He’s also not one to forget the past.  Another classic Diplo remix from 2012, the year Calvin Harris’ “Sweet Nothing” with Florence Welch took hold. Diplo got together with Canadian producer Grandtheft for this one. 

8. Ellie Goulding feat. Diplo & Swae Lee  “Close To Me”

“Close To Me” features some of the industries best and brightest. Swae Lee’s vocals are starting to become familiar to fans across all genres, while Ellie Goulding has been riding with the scene from the start. This track is Diplo’s latest release and has major traction across streaming services sitting pretty at number one on Diplo’s Spotify under popular, with 73 million streams. Definitely keep your ears keen for this one.

9. 4B & Teez – Whistle (Nitti Gritti Remix)

Diplo re-posted this track on his secret SoundCloud account page “diplo approved,” and he’s been known to thread approved tracks into his sets. Additionally, Nitti gritti recently opened for Dillon Francis’ Brooklyn Halloween show and hosts multiple genre and drop changes. Diplo fans will surely recognize and get down to this track.

10. “Get It Right” feat. MØ

“Get It Right” is hot and fresh off the California EP. Diplo played this joint as recently as September 14 at the Brooklyn Mirage for Mad Decent Block Party and even brought out MØ to perform live. It’s flush with style and contemporary waves. One can only hope that Diplo drops it again for this New Years weekend set.

Roc Marciano rides out with new album Behold a Dark Horse, straight from “The Horse’s Mouth”

This post was originally published on this site

Rapper, producer, sex trade connoisseur, and burgeoning singer Roc Marciano has released the followup to the followup to his critically acclaimed 2017 return album Rosebudd’s Revenge. Behold a Dark Horse JUST DROPPED on September 18, fresh on the heels of RR2: The Bitter Dose, which debuted back in March of this year. Like its two most immediate predecessors, the new album is an independent release available firstly as a digital download from Roc Marciano’s online storefront. Physical and streaming formats are expected to follow in the weeks ahead, as was the case with the last two albums.

Of course, the first things that are most striking about Behold a Dark Horse are the cover and title, which appear to be inspired by Milton William Cooper’s conspiracy literature classic, Behold a Pale Horse. William “Bill” Cooper was a Navy officer turned radio broadcaster and author who was killed in a shootout with Apache County police at his Arizona home in 2001, and a book touching on his legacy in both fake news and prison libraries was put out earlier this month by Penguin Random House. On “Whoolers,” the new album’s penultimate track, Roc Marciano raps, “In my former life, I think I might’ve been a penguin.”

Production duties for Behold a Dark Horse are handled by Roc himself, as well as Preservation (of Dr. Yen Lo) and frequent Roc Marc collaborators Alchemist and Arch Druids’ Animoss and Don Cee. Also returning to the boards is Q-Tip, who previously produced “Thread Count” off Marciano’s recently re-issued sophomore album, Reloaded. Guest features include Black Thought, Knowledge the Pirate and Busta Rhymes.

Watch the self-directed video for Behold a Dark Horse’s first single, “The Horse’s Mouth” below, see the full tracklist for Behold a Dark Horse below that, and download here.

TroyBoi teases new Destructo remix at a college pool raveTroyBoi

It was a wild college party in Tucson, Arizona, and TroyBoi was behind the decks. The crowd probably knew what was coming from the English producer, but they couldn’t have expected this. He not only premiered a brand new Destructo remix live, but the #MyStyle producer also uploaded a teaser video to his socials for the world to see.

It’s a remix of Destructo’s recent hip-hop collaboration with Busta Rhymes, and the video is a perfect indication of how hard the track drops. Although it’s only a short snippet, viewers can clearly see an extremely mobile crowd at the pool rave and hear a TroyBoi synth-infused trap drop. Bless the kids who were lucky enough to see it.

Catch TroyBoi on his “Vibez Tour” this fall, kicking off at The Novo in Los Angeles November 16.

Destructo announces new SiriusXM radio show, debuts elbow-throwing hip-hop cut with Busta Rhymes, ‘F**king Sh*t Up’

This post was originally published on this site

Destructo‘s Rolodex of rappers just grew by one legendary associate — Busta Rhymes. And while Gary Richards normally recruits his favorite rhymers for his signature G-house products, this time around, the pair go all in on a apologetically through-and-through hip-hop beat, aptly titled, “F**king Sh*t Up.” The title leaves no room for subtlety. The track is a mean-mugging, elbow-throwing trap piece with Busta locked in to delivering his characteristically gruff super-spits over tight hi-hat rolls and snappy snare hits. The track comes in conjunction with an exciting announcement from the LiveStyle president’s camp.

Debuting on SiriusXM on April 12, Destructo’s new AMFAMFAMF Radio program will launch on the newly christened Diplo’s Revolution channel. The weekly radio show, slotted for Thursday nights, will showcase the new AMF brand and presumably include numerous cameos by Destructo’s legendary friends circle. Keeping a packed itinerary as per usual, Richards’ All My Friends road stretch is now on sale as his summer tour dates begin to heat up. With a new radio show launching, a tour nearly underway, and a brand new hit to rinse out all summer long, expect Destructo to be in your line of sight at almost every turn.
