Tickets for The Groove Cruise went on sale to the public today, and if you weren’t thinking of going, you should think again.

Let’s switch it up just this once, and JUDGE a book by its cover. Sultan Bathery's just-released debut album is exceptional on more than one level, it's cover art is nothing short of spectacular. Paired with an addicting collection of kaleidoscopic, bright, spacey accents, with surprisingly insightful lyrics, Slovenly Recordings has scored a win-win.
The album begins with the fast-paced, fuzz-filled “Satellite,” a brilliant blend of garage-pop and surf-rock. “Satellite” is an ironically happy sounding track about a drug overdose. “My friend Mike has left his body, and he won't be here for you,” chants frontman Giovanni Ongaro, “He doesn't know where he's going...Mom and dad can't stop crying, and he laughs from the top, he doesn't know where he's going...” It's a risky move to start with such a dark tune, but Sultan Bathery manages to disguise the pain with chipper, dance-worthy instrumentals.
Actor turned singer, Mack Wilds, brings us his new visual for the "Henny (Remix)" featuring Mobb Deep, French Montana and Busta Rhymes.

Another scene shows Wilds partying with a bevy of beautiful women along with French, Busta, Havoc and Prodigy, as they all sing odes to their favorite alcoholic beverage, Hennessy. The “Henny Remix” is featured on the Grammy nominated singer's debut album New York: A Love Story, available on iTunes now.
Being one of MTV's Artist to Watch is a pretty big deal. Last year's illustrious list was a stellar selection of the year's major movers and shakes, including the likes of Bastille, Danny Brown, Iggy Azalea, HAIM, Lorde, and many more. Representing for the electronic music community were The Bloody Beetroots, Dillon Francis, Disclosure, Martin Garrix, and Zedd, just to name a few. This year, the MTV Artist To Watch lineup gets a whole new list of players, two of which we had the pleasure of seeing perform at the Highline Ballroom in New York City this past Monday. Who are they? None other than '#Selfie' kings, The Chainsmokers, and Australian electronic music phenom, Flume.

Ovum Records is celebrating 20 years by putting their artists on stages all across America and Verboten in Brooklyn is about to host a 2ovum party featuring Josh Wink, M A N I K and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs!
Josh Wink, a DJ that has been around longer than most, started out in Philly in the 80's playing sets as a kid. He is mostly known for hits like "Higher States" and "Horizontal Dancing". M A N I K on the other hand is a new and emerging artist hailing from NYC and is also Ovum record artist. His influences range from J Dilla to The Dirty Projectors and everything in between. The added bonus for the night comes in the form of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs or TEED, a young UK artist who has been breaking out onto the electro-pop-disco scene. TEED was named Fuse's top 30 artists to see at SXSW in 2013 and he has also done remixes to popular songs by Disclosure and Banks.
Do you remember the first time you heard 'Barbara Streisand?' At first, it probably seemed like just some hilariously catchy track that would enjoy a little fun in the sun for a while, but then came the music video. With celebrity cameos by Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Chromeo, and more worked into the mix, the track found its way on to every TV that could play it, eventually becoming so popular, you could hear 'Barbara Streisand' rocking in the oddest of places (we're talking department stores and supermarkets). That, however, was back 2010, when Duck Sauce was just starting to make a splash on the scene. Since then, the duo of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden have been making a whole lot of noise with their unique fusion of hip-hop, house, and disco, not to mention the added flavor of their quack-fueled comedy that has become the iconic characteristic of all things Duck Sauce. Now, years, millions of YouTube views, and a few VMA nominations later, Duck Sauce finally releases their highly anticipated full-length album, Quack.
