TomorrowWorld has been talked about so much that it doesn't even feel like it was three whole months ago. But within this time, the theatrical After Movie for the epic event was created and has now been released to the public. For those who were there, it will be the best possible way to relive the event, and for those who weren't, it will prompt you to buy your ticket to next year's event as soon as possible. The TomorrowWorld team never fails to impress with their impeccable production, and the quaility of this video only lives up to that reputation. So sit back, and enjoy the recap of one of 2013's biggest festivals.
In relation to this - for its 10th Year Celebration, TomorrowLand, is taking the event to a whole new level by making the its 2014 festival a 2-weekend event. Spanning from July 18 - 20 and July 25 - 27, TomorrowLand will have its biggest event to date. Check out the announcement video below.
R.Kelly’s sexually charged Black Panties is pretty much the dream soundtrack for any porn film. R. Kelly likes to think he’ll contribute to next year’s population with his baby-making, R&B songs, but where this album lacks in romance, it over compensates in raunch.
The 13 track album, featuring collaborations with Kelly Rowland, Ludacris, Jeezy, and 2 Chainz, has a few standout tracks, that may or may not be because of the absolute ridiculous lyrics about vaginas, cookies, and making funny faces in a mirror because it's fun. The songs could be instant classics depending on your level of prudeness.
It's that time of the year again- the Grammys have finally announced the 2014 nominees for its 56th annual awards ceremony, which will air live on January 26th. To no surprise, but very much deserved, Daft Punk have scored four nominations in the following categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Having already won six Grammys, Skrillex has stepped aside to allow artists such as Disclosure, Pretty Lights, Duke Dumont, and Armin van Buuren a shot at winning the prestigious award. 2014 will also see the return of past nominees Calvin Harris and Kaskade, who will be at heads with one another in both "dance" categories.
Coco 66, located in Greenpoint, BK, is becoming a blossoming location for some of the best new talents in the Hip-Hop scene. Daniel Navetta is working to create a place for Hip-Hop artists and fans to get together and enjoy the music.
ApK's "The Program" kicked off the second night of its monthly Hip-Hop series in Brooklyn. Having been to the premiere on Nov 7th at Coco 66, we had high expectations for the second and we were not disappointed.

A "Ferris NYC" pop-up shop had custom design apparel for sale and APK's videographer was ready to capture every punch line.

EDDIE: Danny and I were in a band together some years back and we eventually all went our separate ways. A couple years later Danny had started writing a lot of songs from the piano and asked me if I'd help record some tracks. Luckily I brought my guitar that first day we got back together and it started the process of us writing and producing an entire album over the next year. That was the birth of Lost In Los Angeles, which was taken from the name of an unreleased EP from our prior project. We then found Clark Souter and we knew we had the perfect writing and performing crew.
You all are well-known for being incredible storytellers through your music. Where do you draw inspiration for your songs?
DANNY: Lyrically, it all comes from that swirling passion of life that makes you want to dream big, love large and live powerfully. And the three of us all share that energy, so the vocals, guitar, bass, piano, synth and other melodies are really a common language that we all share.
Do you have a set songwriting process?
D: When those passionate thoughts intertwine with our collective instrumentation, the writing process overflows like crazy. We can't wait for this next record because we have some much material. So many stories to tell.
We've read that some of your craziest touring experiences come from karaoke. What's your go-to jam?
C: All Right Now by Free. Because it's a classic sexy rock song and it makes crowds do a lot of sexy stuff.
What do you think makes you stand out from other bands?
E: We don't have to answer to anybody but us and our fans, so that means our songwriting is coming from a really pure place. It feels like we are able to translate our emotions directly into our music, which really tends to connect with fans.
You recently re-released your single, Because Of You. What's the story behind that song?
D: Eddie came into the studio one day with a guitar riff that was really cool. I had been inspired by an incredibly beautiful girl (see our album cover) the lyrics flowed out in mere moments, followed by Clark's bass lines. A few beats later we knew we had some magic going on. The song is a reminder that when you keep your heart open, beautiful things will happen.
What's been the biggest challenge that you've encountered as a band trying to make it in today's industry? C: There's so much music released today, and with such crazy frequency. Probably the biggest challenge is keeping up with the frantic pace of writing, producing and releasing music. But it's a challenge that we are blessed to have!
