Justin Timberlake unleashes the official video for “Tunnel Vision”, the newest single from his latest album The 20/20 Experience. Timbaland also makes a cameo in the NSFW visuals. Things definitely got a little risqué in this one.
It’s amazing how intelligent the Lawrence brothers of Disclosure are about the products they put out. It’s no accident that songs fall into place the way they do (as schizophrenic as the creation process can be) and listening to people as talented as them recount how each track comes to be is awesome. You can see how their thought progress carried them through the album writing process and where their influences are. It may just be because of the Yeezus leak but their ability to call on old school styles (deep house, garage and even J. Dilla in their case) and rework them to fit modern tastes reminds me a lot of old school Kanye West. Regardless their album Settle is one of the best projects to come out this year across genres and scenes so enjoy a run through of each track from the mouth of the artists.
Sweden’s super-sweet synth-pop outfit The Royal Concept has had my attention for well over a year. Following the release of their self-titled EP and subsequent song placement in FIFA 13, these guys brought a similar style as Phoenix and makes for some awesome summertime vibes. The single ‘On Our Way’ will be available for everyone in a couple days on 6/18 but check out the above lyric video in the meantime.
Kanye West is always eager to grab attention in the most elaborate way possible. Now he debuted a new song in the form of videos simultaneously displayed on the exterior walls of more than five dozen buildings — just in time for tonights performance on Saturday Night Live.

West recently turned Twitter into a guessing game when he posted a cryptic tweet: “June Eighteen”, he wrote. The date could refer to the day his and pregnant Kim Kardashian’s baby is due, or possibly the day West releases a new album.
Kanye West – New Slaves
If West does drop a new album on June 18, it would be his first solo album since 2010’s critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. And with news today of J. Cole’sBorn Sinner dropping on the same day, it seems as though ‘Ye will follow suit.
50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar debut the official music video for “We Up”, the new single from 50’s Street King Immortal which is due out sometime this summer. Watch as 50 and Kendrick enjoy some of the finer things in life, all while showcasing their rhyme capabilities over a smooth instrumental. The previous visual for this track featured Kidd Kidd, who was later removed. Sucks to suck sometimes.

In typical fashion, Dillon Francis threw down a very diverse, high energy set during his slot at the first weekend of Ultra Music Festival 2013. Notably included in this set was an unreleased song, ironically believed to be called “Drunk All The Time”. With a rhythmic, fat bass and pleasant, harmonic vocals, it’s yet another example of how no one gets a crowd hyped quite like Dillon Francis. We can only hope to hear this jam during his March 23 set for the second weekend of Ultra Music Festival 2013.

After bringing you the release to this cover a little over 3 weeks ago, we’re back to give you Blaise’s very-well-done music video to the record. In a time where “cover music” is live and well, Delfino manages to remain in the upper tier of the category, truly giving you (the fan) the full package.

Mark this as a monster win for the increasing public perception of electronic music. For those of you that don’t understand the radical musical talent behind the production of artists like Zedd, this shows you the potential of the movement. Zedd made his first network television appearance tonight backed by a string section of six, Foxes and a backup vocalist (IS THAT ALVIN RISK!?) and did the entire electronic movement more than proud in my humble opinion by performing a beautiful rendition of the title track from his debut album Clarity. Here’s a personal congratulations to Anton Zaslavski; thanks for the reaffirmation that the sky is in fact the limit.

After many names, Avicii and Nicky Romero settled on “I Could Be The One” for their hot collab, and now drops its crazy official music video. Download link provided as well for those who never grabbed it.
Just for those who asking: “Symphonica” will be my first release in 2013
A$AP Rocky’s long-awaited debut album, Long.Live.A$AP, leaked last week and now the gold grilled Harlem rapper unleashes the project’s title track with the official music video. Aside from the fact that A$AP has been straight killing the game, the music video for Long.Live.A$AP is phenomenally artistic and holds great symbolism. Long.Live.A$AP arrives January 15th, 2013!
