A$AP Rocky‘s incarceration in Sweden has galvanized stars across the world to call for the rapper’s release amid reports on unsanitary conditions and solitary confinement. Now, the story has hit another interesting turn as Swedish House Mafia come out as the latest celebrities to get behind Rocky, revealing what appears to be a collaboration between Flacko and the Swedes called “Frankenstein.”

The rapper was arrested 10 days ago in Sweden after an altercation that overwhelmingly appears to be a case of self defense. As the situation continues to unfold, #FreeRocky continues to pick up steam in the news and on social media. Now, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello have made identical posts online pointing at what appears to be a joint cut with Rocky, though a matching post from Axwell has yet to go live. With the Harlem-native and many of his contemporaries calling for future boycotts of Sweden over the incident, the rumored “Frankenstein’s” may wind up being a polarizing release should it ever see the light of day.

On May 28, the internet was thrown into a buzz with the promise of upcoming new material from Madeon—dubbed the producer’s “good faith era.” While the roll out of a new project is currently upon us, not much more is known about “good faith” or the project’s complexion. However, as cryptic messaging from the French wunderkind continues to trickle out ahead of an official release, an Instagram account, @goodfaith.world, has really set the rumor mill ablaze.

The Instagram account has posted the blank lead image of Madeon’s impending new project a number of times, though, its the tags on each image that may paint the actual picture. While the social media profile seems nondescript and unofficial, tags on the images point to possible collaborations with Lady Gaga, Porter Robinson, Lemaitre, and more, and while there isn’t a ton of factual authenticity to go on as of yet, something about a stellar cast of superstar collaborators on whatever this project actually is seems highly likely. Nothing is confirmed as of yet, but you can see the screenshots below and decide for yourself.

Martin Garrix announces new collaboration with Fall Out Boy and Macklemore, ‘Summer Days’Martin Garri Breach

Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and Fall Out Boy all recently launched the same thinly veiled message on social media, alluding to what appeared to be a collaboration between the polarizing pop-rapper, Chicago-native pop-punk champions, and the “Dreamer” producer. Fans quickly caught on to three images all tagged minutes apart with the same caption, “I got this feeling on a Summer day,” sending the internet abuzz with speculation, and now Martin Garrix has confirmed the forthcoming joint effort.

The caption invoked the opening line of Icona Pop’s inescapable “I Love It,” though now Garrix has provided more concrete context for the upcoming release. Officially titled “Summer Days,” the track features Fall Out Boy’s rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump and the “Thrift Shop” rapper, and is due to land on April 25 on Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS.

Garrix has an impressive track record when linking with other artists, and he appears ready to add what many are expecting to be a summer anthem to his already impressive rap sheet of high profile collaborations with “Summer Days.”

Nero plots impending comeback, teases return with cryptic new video

Nero plots impending comeback, teases return with cryptic new videoNero Live

UK veteran dance legends Nero seem to be preparing a comeback, and it’s coming sooner than anyone expected. The group splintered at the onset of 2018 with the launch of Dan Stephens’ and Alana Watson’s The Night duo, and while the couple’s side project has steadily dropped off new work this year, Joseph Ray has largely kept Nero quiet. Now, with the release of a cryptic video on social media, it seems the trio is back in action — teasing something on the way set for December 4.

The video is vague, but looking back at Nero’s history of releases, a four year gap separated the group’s debut album from their sophomore full length, Between II Worldsone of Dancing Astronaut’s top albums of the year in 2015. That means 2019 could bring a new album from Nero, and the roll out could begin as this year winds to a close. Whatever the group has underway, it’s bound to be big. Stay tuned.

Swedish House Mafia post cryptic countdown likely leading to first official reunion announcementSwedish House Mafia Ultra 2018 DA

Brace yourselves, Swedish House Mafia‘s first official announcement since their momentous reunion at Ultra earlier this year might finally be here.

Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell have each posted the same cryptic countdown to social media, directing fans to Swedish House Mafia’s website, where a clock is ticking towards Monday, October 22 at noon EST. The date coincides with the group’s sophomore album, Until Now. While speculation around the group’s movements has been a constant in the dance music news cycle since their hiatus-ending performance in March, a few things regarding the Mafiosos full return are already certain.

The trio have been confirmed to be in the studio together, tantalizing posters have started cropping up in major cities across the world, and most recently, Steve Angello confirmed the Mafia would make their way to Ultra Mexico in 2019. Judging by the writing already on the wall, the countdown likely leads to a significant announcement from the group — either new music, confirmed performance dates, or a rumored Nike collaboration, might finally materialize on October 22. It seems the Swedish House Mafia waiting game could officially be nearing its conclusion.

And just like that… Kanye West has vanished from social media

As quickly as he came back, Kanye West has now disappeared from Instagram and Twitter, possibly ending a polarizing summer of often batshit crazy pop culture pot stirrings. As of October 6, the rapper’s Instagram and Twitter accounts appear to have gone dark. Ye’s return to Twitter was an integral facet to the “promotion campaigns” behind his Wyoming Session albums that were released over the summer, rejoining the platform just weeks before the string of shortened LPs started landing in May. A return to Instagram followed some weeks later, each platform drawing in millions of followers — but rather than deploying typical marketing schemes to push album sales, the Chicago-born rapper’s social media presence largely spiraled into sporadic nonsense, bloated egotistical musings, and eventually, and perhaps most noticeably, divisive Trump-touting and weak rap beef fodder.

Most recently, Ye’s hastily promised Yhandi LP managed to miss its intended late-September release date. Then the rhymer’s unaired closing speech at SNL, during which he claims he was bullied for his political affiliations, was closely followed by what was likely his most baffling social media post yet — calling to “abolish the 13th amendment,” which brought an end to slavery when it was ratified in 1865. After a messy, albeit entertaining, six month stretch on social media, it seems Kanye West may finally be ready to keep a couple of thoughts to himself. An eventual return seems inevitable, though for now, the Twittersphere may quiet down just a little with Ye’s departure.

 Skrillex‘s OWSLA label blows out the candles celebrating seven years this month, and if the collective’s seventh anniversary is expected to impart any luck, then new Skrillex music might be on the way — and sooner than fans expect. Venerated audio engineer Randy Urbanski, whose credits include Skrillex, Beyoncé, and Katy Perry, took to social media to pay tribute to OWSLA in a way that may have implied that Skrillex is eyeing his impending return to the release ring, perhaps as early as October, 2018. Urbanksi included an image of Skrillex performing at XS in 2015 and captioned the visual with a particularly cryptic caption.

“Time flies when you’re having fun. And this year was slow. Can’t wait till this guy is back changing the game next month.”

Fans will remember Diplo spilling the beans on a new record in the works from the OWSLA head honcho earlier this year. Beyond that, the “Parachute” producer’s recent bookings at New Year’s Eve events, Snowta and Decadence, and an annual trip to Burning Man, signal the producer’s return to the festival circuit, a comeback that would naturally coincide with the release of new music, perhaps even a fleshed out project. For now, it seems the waiting game may be nearing an end though.
