On October 7th, via Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak, rising EDM star Garmiani will release the single,“Zaza," suitably riotous track packed with infectious hooks.
Garmiani first landed on Dim Mak back last year, where he released his debut EP “Rumble”. That was something of a killer offering for the Swedish producer, and he racked up support for the likes of Knife Party and Hardwell. “Zaza” is certainly not a track that sits quietly – from the offbeat synth chords and suspense-building rhythm throughout, Garmiani has crafted something a unique. The brass-based climax offers a truly refreshing sound to standard dance music breakdowns and is impressively catchy.
This track is sure to head into a comfortable chart position upon release – you can purchase “Zaza” in just under a week.
Over the course of his 15-year career, Bonobo has grown to international critical acclaim. His organic and detailed sound mixed with a modern electronic feel keeps him on the forefront of the musical frontier.
After a massive live tour with a 12-piece band in 2013, Bonobo has begun a North American tour that will feature his DJ set. He will be performing with support from Kastle on October 4th at Grand Central in downtown Miami.
Bonobo is nothing short of hypnotizing. Born Simon Green in Hampshire, England, an early interest in music has made Bonobo into the genius he is today. Green’s music is complex, vibrant, and always has the listener in mind. It does not stick to one particular sound or scene, but it has garnered hundreds of thousands of fans.
Cherry Glazerr’s successful Burger Records debut earlier this year with their album, “Haxel Princess,” provided the momentum for their sultry new track, “Had Ten Dollaz,” out October 28th on Suicide Squeeze. “Dollaz” came to music lovers attention in the most unusual of ways: the high school indie band’s tune was hand picked by designer Hedi Slimane to soundtrack Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall 2014 runway show. The track is noticeably bluesier than usual for the young trio - sounding like an Amy Winehouse B-side that inadvertently slipped through the cracks. Frontwoman Clementine Creevy is cool as a cucumber, howling out with conviction, “Well I know that you notice my ways…and I feel, I feel your gaze…” Vicious percussion courtesy of Hannah Uribe blends perfectly with Sean Redman’s chill vibes on bass to create a multilayered masterpiece that provides the perfect foray into a more mature sound. Check out the track below!
Running at ten tracks deep, the album is rife with hard beats, versatile production and a few collaborations thrown in for good measure; most notably his collab with fellow dubstep star Datsik and the legendary Ragga Twins.
"Zipper" is a rip roaring bass workout while "Imprint", featuring Tkay Maidza, switches up the vibe with its trap/hip hop hybrid beats and lyrics. Then there's the first single from the LP "Hellcat", a fusion of dubstep synths centered around big room house tempos, again showing the diversity of MUST DIE's production. Switching into other themes are tracks such as "Star Throne", "Feather" and "Together."
Zach Deputy was the perfect ending to an amazing win from Florida State against Clemson in Tallahassee on September 20th. The one man band performed effortlessly at The Side Bar Theatre showcasing nothing less than pure originality and sensational tunes formulated by a mix of harmonies, drum kits, effects pedals and of course the blissful voice of Zach himself. The show was as entertaining and eclectic as the man preforming tunes of old school funk, soulful jazz, reggae and dance music all while keeping the crowd in constant groove. Luckily, we were able to meet with Zach and hear about his many music talents!
Halloween is only about a month away now, and with that comes the first North American stop of the I Am Hardwell World Tour.

Considering how early on the tour was announced this summer, we figured it might be high time to remind you why finding your way to an I Am Hardwell World Tour date is the definition of a good idea.

Pharell Williams' compass leads him on an international quest to find his 'It Girl.' In the vivid Japanese inspired anime visual for the single, the 'Come Get It Bae' singer finds himself on the beach as a character of a video game amongst a group of babes donning bikinis. In another scene, Williams takes the form of the game's narrator with a life size animated illustration of himself whilst various items, places and international flags, that signify his journey in traveling the world to find his love provides the backdrop. Everything about this video screams 'love freely' and 'have fun doing it,' but you don't have to take our word for it. Check out the video below.
