Spenda C

Spenda C (aka Steve Lind) has been pushing the moombahton sound in Australia way before most of us had even heard of it. He definitley saw the potential right out of the gates and established another moniker with his mate Deckhead under the name of The Mane Thing which is dedicated to the 110 bpm moombah sound.
He sent these insane bootlegs out a couple of weeks ago for free. I honestly cant get enough of these, the play count has gone through the roof!

Stumbled across this super cool bootleg by J-Trick last week. You NEED to listen to it now!
Also be sure to check out this mix done by The Mane Thing..

Mehdi Forever

It was such a tradgedy that one of the worlds most cool and innovative producers died at such a young age a little over a month ago. Dj Mehdi will forever be remembered by all those who have had the pleasure to listen to his music.
A-Trak put together this minimix as a tribute to his friend...

What So Not - 7 Dollar Bill EP

From humble beginnings late last year, What So Not (aka Emoh Instead & Flume) have clawed their way through various genres & tempos, creating & manipulating synth patches, percussive layers & vocal transpositions.
The end result is a sound that cannot be labeled or catagorised, only heard.
Now officially signed
Ajax's Sweat it Out label, 'What So Not's debut EP will be released in the coming weeks.

'7 Dollar Bill', is the name & title track from this 4 track EP.

Hope you all get right behind these boys as they're definitly pushing the sounds of the future..

I saw this on Skrillex's Facebook page a few days ago and I must say I was instantly intrigued. Not only does this project involve a new Skrillex collaboration with the remaining members of The Doors, it also has other unlikely artists and producers teaming up. The idea was to place a DJ/producer out of their respective genre and team them up with a famous artist or producer of that genre and one that has been around for a while. I think the one I'm most excited about (apart from Skrillex) is Pretty Lights with Leann Rimes and 84 year old country legend Ralph Stanley. By the looks of this video the juxtaposition of these artists will be a thrill not only to listen to, but to watch how they each approach the music creation process as well.

Zeds Dead - Rumble In The Jungle

Zeds Dead latest track Rumble In The Jungle dropped only a few day ago on Mad Decent and is about to blow up. With elements of reggae and moombahton laid on top of a beat that lies somewhere in the grey area between dubstep and drum and bass it can be described as a tropical hawaiian monster.
