Watch These College Kids React To Daft Punk [Video]

If you’re reading this, you know who Daft Punk are. You know they’re an iconic French duo, considered legends of electronic music, and have been around since the ’90s. You know their names, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, you know their albums, and for damn sure you’ll recognize their classic tunes off the first beat… It’s a bit hard not to sound the slightest bit snobbish when they get brought up, because any fan worth their salt just gets it.

So join me in cringing while watching these college kids react to Daft Punk, not really sure what to make of Homework or Interstella 5555, and then gleefully joining in when they’re finally treated to the Grammy-winning “Get Lucky.” Thankfully, the second half of the clip is dedicated to chronicling duo’s rich and influential history, so there’s no need to seek out these plebes and tell them yourself.

Watch Jauz Drop This Insane New ID In His Hometown

On the second installment of Jauz’ Off The Deep End tour, the sharky producer threw down some jaw dropping new music that can only be described as epic. Jauz premiered the new tune at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in his home town of San Francisco, so of course he was going to throw down.

This new ID packs all the flavor of Armin van Buuren’s “Ping Pong” mixed with Jauz’ own penchant for mind crumbling bass jams. After globetrotting through 2016, this tour is focused on his most die-hard fans, and we can only imagine how much more unreleased music Jauz has tucked up his sleeve for the remaining stops.

The Chainsmokers Response To Article Comparing Them To Nickelback Is Absurdly Perfect

Yesterday, an article by Esquire comparing The Chainsmokers to Nickelback (with exceptional reasoning) went absolutely viral. With such vicious lines as “the duo sounds like it was written by and for the programmers of a Pandora EDM channel” and “the duo has managed to create beer pong tournament background music that offers nothing but repackaged EDM tropes for Spotify plays,” it’s no wonder.

But now, The Chainsmokers have given the textbook perfect response to the article, uploading a clip of them singing (and playing) to Instagram. Beginning with an acapella of “Paris,” they seamlessly transition into a rendition of “How You Remind Me” before cracking up.

We love the internet… watch this:

Welp, here’s the nickelback x chainsmokers mashup that no one wanted..

Ed Sheeran Turns Boxer In New Video For “Shape Of You”

Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” has already smashed records, so it’s only appropriate that he crushes some faces in the official music video. In it, he plays a boxer training for a big fight when he meets a girl… clearly the title of the song comes into play here, as both are exquisitely in shape.

In fact, the video tells the story of the song quite well; though the “climax” of the video is actually hilariously anti-climactic, it’s a fantastic story to see unfold. Check it out below:

Inside Germany’s Exclusive Berghain Nightclub With Ricardo Villalobos [Video]
