The Tonight Show has shown a growing musical disposition in the days since Jimmy Fallon became the show's host. With recent guest performances from the likes of Stevie Nicks and the Roots, and with Fallon hilariously entertaining sit-down guests with musical games and covers, the show has seen a sharp rise in popularity.
Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show have continued their streak of musical headlines recently. When musical guest U2 surprised this week's show by not appearing, due to an arm injury incurred by Bono from a biking accident, the show seemed destined for a lackluster and disappointing fill-in. Not on Jimmy's watch, though!

Wholly unexpected but very much appreciated, 'Let the Freak Out' is different, in a good way. While Carnage, Erick Morillo, and Harry Romero may seem like an unlikely trio of collaborators, what became of it is an undeniable success. 'Let the Freak Out' sees each of the single's three artists shine in their own unique way. The track's overarching house vibe indicative of Morillo and 'Choo Choo' Romero's legendary sounds, but Carnage's contribution of thick, thrumming bass and festival inspired sound effects do not go unnoticed. Together with Mr. V's simple and seductive vocal hook, 'Let the Freak Out' is exactly the kind of track to make people throw caution to the wind and get a little weird.
There's a lot of pressure inherent in being recognized as Tiesto's protégé, but MOTi has risen to the occasion time and time again, churning out monolithic releases like 'Virus' with Marti Garrix, and 'Zeus' with Kenneth G every step of the way. With his sights set on his rightful place among the dance music greats, MOTi has taken his productions to new heights through his latest single, 'Lion (In My Head).' Using hypnotic vocals that work their way deep into your head with a subtle grace to lure you in, 'Lion (In My Head)' brazenly brandishes claws of sharp synths and pounces on the track's heavy beat with all the ferocity of a predator hunting its prey.
Fresh material from UK producer LAXX has just landed, courtesy of his brand new Step Three EP, which has seen a release via the mighty Never Say Die Records. With "Step One,” "Step Two" and the giveaway of "Step Free" doing the required damage, "Step Three" is about to follow suit.
The title track brings heavy trap-influenced riffs, while "The Invisible Invaders" brings some edit-heavy funk. "Step Three" shows a real quality and diversity in LAXX's production and shows that he gets better with every release - this EP is no exception.
Make sure you get a copy of "Step Three" here.
