Queens-based artist Princess Nokia has released a dark new track, “Anomaly!” Nokia is a collaboration between vocalist Destiny Ortiz and producer OWWWLS aka Chris Lare. “Anomaly” will send shivers down your spine in the best way possible. We here at Joonbug originally discovered Destiny when she was featured on Mykki Blanco’s fierce banger “Wish You Would.” She blew us away with her Lil Kim-esque vocals, and spot-on Tank Girl reference, and now we’re pleased to report that her talents have continued well into her collaboration. “Anomaly” pairs Ortiz’s dreamy vocals, with Lare’s steady, pulsing beat replete with sinister undertones, creating a soundtrack befitting both dreams and nightmares alike. The track is a complete 180 from her hardass verse in Blanco’s track; it’s hauntingly gorgeous, filled with lyrics discussing everything from social injustices to personal insecurities. Check out the track below and let us know what you think!

He reached critical acclaim and received a Grammy nomination for his elegant and serene remix of "Waves" by Dutch singer/songwriter Mr. Probz, and now Robin Schulz is set to embark on his first ever tour in the United States. The German-based producer will be hitting 10 cites in the month of January in support of his debut album Prayer, which was released back in September. Though his success came seemingly overnight, the origins of Robin Schulz's world renown talent can be traced back to his childhood. His father was a DJ in the eighties and at the age of 17, Robin decided to learn the craft. By the time he was 20, Schulz started spinning at a local party series called "Electroschnipsel" and began learning how to produce soon after. "You are what you produce" became Robin's motto as his name started appearing atop of the dance music charts in countries all over Europe and around the world. We sat down with the remix extraordinaire to discuss his recent success and what we can expect from his upcoming tour in the states.
