SZA became a bona fide star last year with the release of her excellent debut album Ctrl, which neared the top of our Best Albums Of 2017 list. And yesterday, she brought her considerable star power to bear on the opening night of Coachella, performing in the midst of a sleepaway camp-inspired stage set … More »

Anticipation continues to mount for the release of future bass powerhouse Alison Wonderland’s new AWAKE LP, following the respective releases of her first couple of singles, “No” and “Church.” Arriving as the third single off her forthcoming sophomore studio album comes the ambient single, “High,” featuring Ohio-based rapper Trippie Redd. The track is accompanied by a mood-enhancing video featuring Alison Wonderland and Trippie Redd at the center. It was self-directed by Alison Wonderland, with cinematography from Jeffrey Zoss.
“It was a real pleasure to work with Trippie,” Alison Wonderland says of the release. “It is important to vibe with an artist before we collaborate. When he heard this song, it was very organic, and he jumped in the booth and we walked out feeling that we had something special. I felt like this song had a certain spirit and wanted people to feel like they were going on a journey with us….just like when watching the music video.”
The visual aesthetic of the video perfectly encapsulates the chill, stoner mood set by the song’s lyrical content, with both producer and rapper swaying against a colorful floral background as glitchy jump cuts keep viewers on their toes. Quite unexpectedly, the video starkly transitions to an animated storyline (c/o Jayme Lemperle and Evan Red Borja) at Wonderland’s unusual and unique drop, pulling listeners into a completely different universe that is assuredly a snapshot of her mind.
Due out April 6 on Astralwerks, AWAKE is the follow-up to Alison Wonderland’s 2015 debut album, Run, which entered Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1.
Alison Wonderland has had an insane past year and some change on her path to becoming an EDM superstar. Taking over Mainstages and Clubs across the globe are just a few of the feats she has accomplished along the road. Taking pride in her femininity and power as a female DJ/Producer, she has gained fans

The young Ohio sing-rapper Trippie Redd came up with last year’s SoundCloud rap wave, and he appears to be making a real run at rap stardom these days. Case in point: Trippie Redd’s new video for “Dark Knight Dummo,” a Travis Scott collab that came out a couple of months ago. The clip does as … More »
I haven’t had a lot of time in my life for the new N.E.R.D. album, but I’ve got plenty for their videos and, even more, their recent TV performances. Without access to their boldfaced-name guest stars, N.E.R.D. have instead turned those performances into celebrations of dance, ceding their stages and TV slots to people who … More »
The Grammys are this weekend — Sunday at 7:30PM EST on your local CBS affiliate, to be exact — and as always, we’re (almost certainly naïvely) hoping they won’t suck this time. They probably will; they always do. Yet thanks to a somewhat promising slate of nominees in the major categories, a similarly half-decent … More »
The raspy, euphoric Virginia singer DRAM has been awfully busy. Thus far in November, he’s already shared the Rick Rubin-produced “Check Ya Fabrics” and the Playboi Carti collab “Crumbs,” and he’s also shown up in an animated Sprite ad with LeBron James. We haven’t heard his Neil Young collab yet, … More »
DRAM, who recently dropped the periods from his name in semi-comedic fashion, is back today with a new song produced by none other than Rick Rubin. “Check Ya Fabrics” is a loose, floaty, psychedelic R&B track with pitched-up vocals, like Kendrick Lamar spouting manipulated vocals over an outtake from Electric Ladyland but, like, … More »
