On the heels of UK dubstep mogul Flux Pavilion’s new EP, Freeway, the inconically blonde-haired producer/DJ has found himself in the midst of a massive tour, appropriately named “Freeway Tour.” To give you a glimpse into what the tour is all about, both on stage and on the road, Flux has been releasing a series of tour diaries.
Today’s episode, filmed and edited by Teaghan McGuiness, shows the tour cruising from city to city, hitting Atlanta, Birmingham, Raleigh, Gainseville, Tallahassee, Vegas and Nashville. Sit back and enjoy the madness.

It was only yesterday that we introduced you to The Weeknd‘s new single from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, and now tonight we have our hands on Ellie Goulding‘s contribution to the mix. Like “Devil May Cry” before it, “Mirror” is a beautiful compilation with its own enchanting qualities. From Ellie’s fluttering vocals to the emotional chorus, this track should fit in perfectly among the other amazing selections we’ve heard from the upcoming film so far. Don’t just take our word for it though. You can stream the full length soundtrack through iTunes right now before its release on November 19th, with the film arriving in a theater near you on November 22nd.
Breathless ft. Michelle Quezada (Out November 25th)
Who doesn’t want to find that one person that can leave you breathless?
Candyland takes that feeling and puts their electronic touch to the story for their new original song “Breathless” off their label Sweet Shop Records. The full song comes out November 25 but the duo dropped a little taste of the song a few days ago to get their fans excited. The song features the vocals of the talented Michelle Quezada who is a perfect match to Candyland’s festival sound. The vocals and melody start off with a simple upbeat pace before Candyland takes the listener for a drop with a hard, constant almost trap like beat. The repeating vocals add to the power of the song leaving us with that breathless feeling. Excited to hear the final product in a few weeks and see just how breathless we are after that.
A new EP by one of our favorite bleached blonde producers from the UK?
Count me in Flux, count me in.
Yesterday, Flux Pavilion dropped his new EP ‘Freeway’, 5 tracks that all show just how diverse of an artist he truly is by the beats, the melodies and who he collaborates with to make this EP one for the books. Teaming up with Steve Aoki for ‘Steve French’ then pairing his intense beats with Dillon Francis’ light hearted electronic flow for ‘I’m The One’, Flux shows he is the man of the hour. Flux’s song ‘Gold Love’ with the vocals of miss Rosie Oddie is one of my favorites. Hard and intense electronic beats, what we have come to know and love from Flux, drives this song with the high pitched, unique vocals of Oddie. Then there is ‘Freeway’, a different sound for Flux, where he has decided to slow down his intensity and flow the electronic melodies from one measure to the next. The song tells the journey, a musical journey and an intimate journey to find oneself. Flux also changes it up with the last song on the EP ‘Mountains And Molehills’ featuring Turin Brakes. Taking on an almost rock sound mixed in with the right electronic twists, this song feels like something out of a video game.
Another grand EP from the man FP, keep rocking you dirty blonde UK man.

New York based space pop group The Landing is an act of creation and discovery. With little information out this newcomer, all we have to talk about is the music.
Today we’re excited to offer up a premiere of “Anxieties” from this mysterious, soft-sung pop outfit. With calmly welcoming outer worldly notes fluttering across a slow, repetitious beat, we’re left focusing in on the lead singer’s voice, which is quite enjoyable. In the same vein as Mansions on the Moon or Carousel, these guys (and/or gals) have a good thing going with just their second tune. We’re already looking forward to their next release.
Relations Featuring Childish Gambino
Childish Gambino has been all over the place lately as he prepares for the release of his upcoming album, Because The Internet. This time he teams up with Kenna, hopping on the remix of his recent single, “Relations.” You know Bino knows a thing or two about relationships, which is exactly why he fits right in with the kooky 80′s inspired atmosphere, complimenting the funky vibes with some bold punchlines and hilarious ad-libs. Check out the single above, and stay on the lookout for Childish’s next project, set to drop next month.
Mansions On The Moon
Radio (Juno Ray Remix)
While we may have slightly missed the ship when Juno Ray’s (who’s real name is Tae Gyun Kim) poppy nu-disco remix of Mansions On The Moon’s hyper-successful single “Radio” first released; we were delighted when it once again recirculated into our stream of consciousness. Juno Ray, the young case study in question here, hails from South Korea and cut his teeth as a classical musician before jumping into the world of electronica. Already taking on the likes of Chromeo, Yelle, and The Knocks; Mansions On The Moon fell perfectly in line with the recent body of Juno Ray remix work. This new take on “Radio” makes sure not skimp on that four-to-the-floor nu-disco shimmer or robust synth play and takes MOTM’s luminous dream-pop in another direction entirely. Check out Juno Ray’s remix above, and grab this one as a free download while you’re at it.
