It’s safe to assume that every single person who comes to our site has been to a live show. It’s also safe to assume that a good number of you have made it to a festival of some sort, enjoying multiple stages of music over the course of one or more days. What goes into those shows though? How many moving parts are you aware of? For most of us, we don’t understand the magnitude of work, the immense amount of people, and the meticulous planning it takes to put on such an encompassing experiences for fans. Until now.
Documentarians Doug Bogan and Mike Koziel, in association with KenCast, have traveled the country trying to shine some light on this very subject. Showcasing 11 interviewees from differing aspects of the dance music industry, including TMN Co-Founder Clayton Warwick, Heard But Not Seen is a compelling, behind-the-scenes exploration at this overwhelmingly popular faction of today’s music-loving culture.
Below is a trailer of the upcoming film, with the full release dropping next Month.
The week just started and we already have ourselves one of the dopest records to show with SKULS‘ Rip of “Insane” by Flume. His collaboration with Moon Holiday got tastefully trapped out by the Bay Area act. Throughout the four and a half minutes, you are taken through four chorus sections, with the one and third being similar, and the other two sporting different qualities that change things up for varied vibes. SKULS is an act that has put out a lot of extremely good songs, and this is one that blows us away even by SKUL standards. It’s got a sound that works for large crowds, but it’s not an in your face with energy type of track. They played it cool and were still able to manage something with a big sound. If you don’t already follow these two on Soundcloud, you best start now.
Everydayz & Phazz worked up a solid LP with their Almeria project. Their debut LP was released by the French label Nowadays Records on April 20th, with the track hitting stores the same day. Although the album is packed with ten tracks, they have only decided to have two go live on Soundcloud for streaming purposes. “Almeria” and “Trappe D’Amour” are enough to convince you to get the LP alone, and trust us, the rest of the EP is not disappointing. Their future sound backed by hip-hop fury is exemplified by both tracks below, with each having a different overall flavor. Their varied sensibilities come out stronger in the full album, which you’ll just have to purchase to perceive.

Don’t be fooled, this is not another mediocre future bass track that sounds like Tchami or Oliver Heldens. Clayjay, the 18-year-old from San Francisco, is cooking up something really special with his latest remix of Tulpa‘s “Deer Stared At Me”. Fusing future bass and trap elements, Clayjay manages to turn the amazing piano work from Tulpa into an epic tune. The minimalist approach and the bold synth melodies provide a total change-up from the beautiful keys, resembling the sound of Slow Magic. The more you listen to it, the more quickly you’ll fall in love with this track.
Clayjay possesses the new household sound. Make sure to check him out if you haven’t already, and grab a free download of this gem if you dig this. We’ll let his music do the talking.
Prince Fox is a man of musical wonder. All his released tracks are pure fire, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Aside from his yet to be released work, the producer has many edits/bootlegs that he creates and uses in his live shows. With his recent milestone of 25,000 Facebook fans, he has decided to release some of those.
Six tracks in all make up this giveaway pack, including flips of tracks by Dirty South, Cazzette, and Florence & The Machine. Only two of the tracks were uploaded to Soundcloud, which are the Major Lazer and Martin Garrix with Usher bootlegs. Prince Fox’s future pop style comes out strong in these edits, except for the mashup of Jackal, Boombox Cartel and House of Pain, which makes for a nice break from the heavenly sounds Sam puts forth in the other songs. Like we said, this is a giveaway, so get your goodie bag right here.
Martin Garrix Feat Usher Dont Look Down (Prince Fox Bootleg)
Happy 420 to all the partakers out there! For you, we have something special from Dani Deahl and Jason Edward. An homage to two of music’s most well known tokers, the two producer’s tweaked Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “The Next Episode” into a tasty twerk treat. Get down and boogie your bottom, or kick back and chill (and smoke), the choice is yours. The introduction uses the iconic original beat, but then builds into the drop where fat horns matched with ripe vocal chops fire into the mix. As heard in previous Dani Deahl works, there’s a little moombah phrase that creeps in the song too. Dani Deahl and Jason Edward dished this out as a 420 present, so you can download the track for free. Enjoy the holiday!
