Last October, six days after a gunman killed 58 people during his performance at the Route 91 Harvest festival on the Las Vegas strip, Jason Aldean made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live. For the show’s cold open, the country star and his band covered “I Won’t Back Down,” which functioned as a dual … More »

The Chainsmokers released their second single of 2018, and continue their new trend skewing from the sound that led to their momentous rise.
“You Owe Me” is a part of the now two-sided single, Sick Boy…You Owe Me, and it’s the duo’s safest shift into instrumental heavy, post-EDM to date.
The new track sees that the duo’s doubling down on the pop-punk, Twenty One Pilots operative that was explored on “Sick Boy,” but in a form that’s significantly lacking in comparison.

Currently touring Europe, The Chainsmokers have continued to experiment with their new “band” sound. At a recent show in Prague, the duo played all of the recent hits including the most recent pop track “Sick Boy”. In addition to the latest hits, they have been experimenting new songs.

“How many likes is my life worth?” moans producer Drew Taggart who serves as the vocalist in the clip while co-producer Alex Pall bangs away at a piano and a drummer keeps the song alive.
While the track is sure to delight the group’s more recent fans, it’s a notably major departure from the progressive house remixes that brought them into prominence.
One of the world’s greatest pop singer-songwriters seemed to achieve her final form this year by having drunken sex with a muppet in a music video called “Disco Tits.” The song itself is a jam, a poised and minimal dance-floor deconstruction that toggles between spacious staccato piano stabs and synthetic bass throbs that roll with … More »
Canadian producer Shaun Frank has a track record of making music ranging from deep house to pop. His latest release, “Addicted” featuring Violet Days, fits into the latter, making it perfect for radio. Days’ catchy vocals carry the track into an upbeat pop drop with a tropical house flair.
