But after taking a different route with his 'Gold Skies' remix earlier in the month, Tiesto is definitely not afraid to show listeners the many sides of his productions.

The Mastermind saga continues with the release of Rick Ross' new music video single, "Drug Dealer's Dream;" the latest cut from Ross' sixth studio album.
On the track, the Teflon Don spits raw, uncut bars about the perils that come with being a drug dealer, as well as his rise to the top as a don, over a dramatic beat produced by J. Manifest.
The visual, shot in St. Kitts, opens with Ross having a good time on the beach and enjoying the fruits of his labor in one scene; then cooling amongst Kittitians in the island’s residential areas in another.
Take a peek at the visual below and, don’t forget to purchase your copy of Mastermind available on iTunes now!
After the Neon Future I release date was unfortunately pushed back by over a month due to additional production needs for the album, Steve Aoki has ensured that none of that extra time has gone to waste. With three singles and two music videos already in play, Steve Aoki has simply managed to build the hype and anticipation for his second ever full-length album.
In an ever growing world of DIY producers, cultivating the ability to stand out amongst the clamor has been made harder than ever to accomplish. For select few, however, talent has never been easier to find.
Sydney-based artist, Jimi Frew, just recently dropped the release of his highly-anticipated single, "Yalla". Uncaged via John Dahlback's thrown-holding label, Mutants Records, the track quickly racked in a heap of support from a row of DJs and producers around the globe. On first play, this tune just moved us to bounce off our seats and dance around snapping to the beat. It's an incredible mix of modern electro-house sampling, blended in with what seems to be an Eastern-influenced use of guitar. The release is available through iTunes today, so be sure to swing by and grab your own copy here.
One month ago, Tritonal announced the plans for their third and final Metamorphic EP, finally bringing an end to the year and a half long project.

Now, we all get the chance to take a small, two-minute look at 'Anchor' to hold us over until the full thing comes out later this week.
With the 'Kanye' music video, The Chainsmokersattempt to (almost) completely leave behind their #Selfie past. It may come as a surprise to everyone, but the 'Kanye' music video is surprisingly poignant, and though the song and title may hint at being a troll-y and joke-y, the track itself preaches an important message about having self confidence and taking pride in being who you are.
"'Kanye' is a special video for us in that it represents the ideal that every person should live their life the way they want to," say Drew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers. "Like Yeezy, do what you believe and makes you happy and be confident regardless of what anyone else thinks.... We hope the video conveys just that, the message of self-assurance and living out life on your own term."
Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea show appreciation for their protruding derrières on J Lo's remake of her latest single,"Booty." However, their very own bodacious assets are not the only things that Jenny from the block and the Aussie emcee talks about embracing on the vibrant electro-dance track--they also urge other women to embrace their big booties as well.
"Booty" includes Pitbull on the original cut of J. Lo's eighth studio album, A.K.A, which was produced by Cory Rooney and Benny Medina. Don't forget to click on the box below to listen to this fiery club banger!

We recently caught up with Nicky to talk about his process as a producer/DJ, playing drums at a young age, Chris Martin, as well as what the future has in store for him.
Prawn is one of those bands that you’ve never heard of, but once you do know them, you’re shocked others don’t. The band falls into a rather “sneaky talented” category – often requiring several listens to really get a feel for their sound. Still, Prawn has been doing their best to stay out of the oft-stereotyped “emo” category of music while working their butts off to stay relevant in the process. However, they may, in fact, be here to stay with their newest LP Kingfisher.
The line “it’s the floor I’m reaching for” starts off the record – perhaps not the most uplifting message, but Prawn does not shy away from being straight-forward. Driving these songs are perhaps some of the most soaringly-catchy melodies Prawn has ever written. Though the lyrics can be downright depressing (“if the gods are fair then I am f*cked”), the trumpet lines and Explosions in the Sky-like guitar leads are enough to keep your foot-tapping throughout. The pacing of Kingfisher is tremendous, and by the time you hit the fourth track “Dialect Of…,” you’re completely submersed in the intricacies that Prawn is known for.
The live electronic music trio of drummer Adam Tune, synth/keyboadist David Matisse, and turntablist extraordinaire Jr. Flo, a.k.a. Keys N Krates, have been in a league of their own from day one. Incapable of being accurately described by any one label, Keys N Krates continue to infuse the ever-popular genres of hip-hop and bass music with their uniquely eclectic performance style to produce sounds that are altogether far more unique that the trap music label they are most commonly given. With Every Nite, the follow-up to their SOLOW EP, due out via Dim Mak Records on September 23rd, Keys N Krates return to the spotlight with their newest single, 'Are We Faded.'
