Pusha-T presents the visual for 'Lunch Money,' produced by Kanye West.

Today, Google premiered their Year In Search 2014 film, which recaps the most definitive things people looked for and asked about this year. Alongside images of movies, music videos, sporting events, and historical moments from around the world, the video carries itself to the sounds of 'Divinity' by Porter Robinson. The track, featuring vocals by Amy Milan, is off of Porter Robinson's debut full-length album, Worlds, and its beautifully dreamy melody lends itself perfectly as the backdrop to the emotions evoked by images of the many famous faces we lost this year, including Joan Rivers, Maya Angelou, and Robin Williams, as well as hilariously uplifting clips of poplar Vines, the Ice Bucket Challenge, and scientific breakthroughs that changed lives.
Dada Land, a place where champagne, balloons, bananas, and bass fatter than the juiciest sausages reign supreme, and at the center of it all lies the Dada Land Compound. Starting Friday, February 13th somewhere in the confines of Brooklyn, NY, the Dada Land Compound will begin making its way across the country, and bringing all the mystery, hype, and notoriety of a Dada Life party with it. After teasing fans with a more than cryptic trailer showing champagne going down a drain, something that wouldn't be out of the ordinary for any Dada Life show honestly, the duo has finally announced the first phase of the Dada Land Compound North American tour dates, which will run from mid-February into early April.
Having just released his full length album In Space, No One Can Hear Your Boring Stories, we decided to grab a few words with the Melbourne based Smile On Impact. With the LP covering so many different sounds and styles, we wanted to hear how he went about writing it.
In three words, how would you sum up your sound?
Intergalactic Laser Crunk.
Do you have any favorites from the album?
"Heartbreak Song" with Froya is the least clubby track on the record but probably my favourite. Froya & I have mutual friends in Malaysia but have never actually met, and getting her to put down a vocal my track was super exciting. She did an amazing job and I rejigged the whole arrangement on the track to give her voice the space and focus it deserves.
Love can blossom from friendship, but if it fades, friendship rarely remains. Atlanta-based songstress, Brooklynn, seems to be experiencing that very conundrum in the lyrics of her heartfelt new track "Friends," being offered as a free download right here on Joonbug! "Friends" toes the line between confidence and insecurity, with Brooklynn at first crooning assuredly, "I can do it better, I can do it right, I can give you treasures every single night..." before pulling back and expressing her worries of "things will never be the same again...no going back, no going back to friends..." Blend these conflicting emotions with a smooth beat and Brooklynn's soaring vocals for a gorgeous track that will move you to the core. Check it out the track HERE!
"Underbelly" packs in plenty of exciting elements, including lively piano synths and a nice but gnarly bass line to ensure there is a bit of punch. The group seem to have established a sound with ease, and it will be interesting to see where they take their music heading into 2015.
You can pick up a copy of "Underbelly" here.

MADEON U.S. TOUR DATES:
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Yoshitoshi is releasing a remix package filled with their most iconic tracks to date. Previous releases from the compilation include Uto Karem and Robosonic mixes of Eddie Amador’s ‘House Music,” which have both seen much success on the Beatport charts.
The next track on the bill is Alcatraz’ seminal “Giv Me Luv,’ and lending her techno Goddess hands to the track for the remix is Nicole Moudaber. “I’ve got so many fond memories of ‘Giv Me Luv’, it was one of my favorite tunes from my formative clubbing days. So, when Yoshi mentioned the idea of me remixing it I just couldn’t say no. In fact I was so familiar with Alcatraz I was already awash with ideas of what I could, or should, do with it. As I got into the mix one of those ideas just grew and grew, namely an extended breakdown that constantly builds; layering the memorable vocal to an intense pay-off and (hopeful) moment of real dance floor drama.”
