Bad Boy Bill & Nick Rockwell - Concourse B

DJ/Producer Bad Boy Bill has teamed up with Nick Rockwell on a new house track called "Concourse B", which was released this week on BBB's label Ménage Music. Bad Boy Bill began his career as a DJ in 1985 when the Chicago house music scene was just getting started. He gained a big following in Chi-town by playing the club scene non-stop and selling his DJ mix tapes out his trunk all over town. He was one of the first guys to mass produce his mixes. Soon thereafter, he became internationally known with his Bangin' The Box mix series and his collaborations with Richard Vission. Nick Rockwell, also a Chicago resident, grew up idolizing Bill and began DJing clubs when he was a teenager. After opening for many big names, including Bill himself, his idol named him as the 2008's Breakthrough DJ and Nick is now one of his go-to openers. Now these two have put out a great house jam that you can listen to below. Enjoy, and be sure to purchase on Beatport.

Madeon - Icarus

Brand new track from Madeon called "Icarus" was released today on his brand new label Popcultr. The track was first heard during his 15 Minutes Of Pain mix on Pete Tong's radio show last month. The 17 year old French electropop producer has gained international attention after successful remixes of Deadmau5 and Yelle, and became somewhat of an internet sensation when a video of him performing a live mashup called "Pop Culture" hit the web. The track combined 39 pop hits into one song and reached over 9 million views. Madeon will debut his live show at the Ultra Music Festival, which takes place in Miami, FL next month. He will also be performing at this year's Coachella Festival. You can listen to the new song below.

Spank Rock has released the video for his collaboration with Santigold called "Car Song", off last year's Everything Is Boring, And Everyone Is A Fucking Liar. The video for the feel-good tune was directed by Luis Gispert and shows a handful of random scenes featuring the two. One scene shows the two in a steam room, another shows Spank Rock being carried by a man in a top hat, and the finale shows two naked blonde women with blue paint and...well I'll just let you see for yourself. Enjoy the video below.

Crystal Castles - Suffocation (HEALTH Remix)

Earlier this week, Crystal Castles released a video directed by their own Ethan Kath for the track "Suffocation", off their 2010 album II. Now, L.A. dance punks HEALTH have released a remix for the song. They give the tune a dark and moody sound, as opposed to the slightly more upbeat original. As you may know, these two bands have a long history starting back in 2008 when Crystal Castles re-worked HEALTH's song "Crimewave". Both versions of the song were featured on a split EP that reached #9 on the U.K. indie singles charts. Crystal Castles are currently in the studio working on their third LP, which is due out this Summer. HEALTH, on the other hand, released a cover of Pictureplane's song "Goth Star" back in September. Below, you can download the new remix.

Jay Fresh - Diamonds (Blue Collar Prophet Remix)

Jay Fresh has been given the remix treatment by Arizona producer Blue Collar Prophet. The track that has been remixed was the Jus-Stone The Great produced "Diamonds". The remix maintains the original sample of the classic Yardbirds song "For Your Love", but adds in some heavy bass that gives the tune a lot more energy. Jay Fresh just got done spending the weekend opening up for Yelawolf and BoomBox, and will be playing shows at both 35 Denton and SXSW next month. Look out for more projects and collaborations from this up and coming artist. You can check out Blue Collar Prophet DJing at Dos Gringos in Scottsdale, AZ on Friday nights.

VIDEO: Nadis Warriors - Language Is A Virus (Coded Message)

The song is accompanied by a video that shows a spray painted stencil of Burroughs in the background with a coded message that scrolls across for their fans to uncover. This isn't the first time the band has done this, they previously did the same thing as a contest with a live recording of the track "Cytokinesis".

VIDEO: BoomBox - Me And My Baby (Live)

The concert promoters at Banjos To Beats have brought in livetronica band BoomBox for a show at Trees in Dallas tonight with local support from dance folk band Ishi and up and coming rapper Jay Fresh. BoomBox consists of guitarist and singer Zion Rock Godchaux and producer/DJ Russ Randolph, who together have created a mesmerizing sound with elements of electronica, rock, and blues. The band also incorporates a psychadelic sound in a lot of their music. In fact, Godchaux parents, Keith and Donna Jean, were both members of legendary band The Grateful Dead from 1971-1979. Since 2004, BoomBox have released two critically acclaimed albums and have toured extensively. To give you an idea of what to expect tonight, I have posted a video that was released back in November of the band playing a sold out show at the Aggie Theater in Ft. Collins, Colorado. The song featured is a previously unreleased tune called "Me And My Baby". I have also included a free download of the live recording. You can still get presale tickets for the show tonight here. If not, you will be able to purchase tickets when doors open at 7PM. Enjoy the show tonight!

You no doubt have heard the original version of this song whether you are a fan of the band or not, as it is featured in the Apple iPod Touch commercial.

VIDEO: Neon Indian - Fallout

Neon Indian has a brand new video out for the track "Fallout", off their latest album Era Extrana. The video was done in collaboration with Adult Swim, who heard the tune and immediately wanted to make a video for it. They contacted Alan Palomo, who agreed to let them create the clip. They then tapped Lilfuchs, the man behind other Adult Swim sponsored music videos for Flying Lotus and Holy Ghost!. He agreed and the video he made is a tribute of sorts to the cartoons from the 80's, complete with a pink Corvette to match the big pink hair sported by its sexy cartoon driver. Neon Indian is preparing for an Australian tour before they head back over here for a U.S. tour with Purity Ring. They will be in Dallas at the Granada Theater on March 13th. You can get tickets here. Enjoy the awesome video below.

Nick Thayer - Like Boom EP

On February 7th, Australia's Nick Thayer will release his Like Boom EP on OWSLA. Expect the entire release to be filled with many different styles of filthy bass music, as he doesn't stick with just one style in his productions. Nick currently has an audio/video live show in collaboration with visual artist sevenmilligram that is supposed to be mind blowing. Hopefully he will bring it to the U.S. fairly soon. Nick Thayer first came up on my radar when I heard his moombah remix of Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Got Your Money" and I immediately knew I had to have it. Unfortunately for me, the tune was approved for the Ministry Of Sound Maximum Bass Platinum CD that is only available in Australia. However, it has not kept me from following his work and I am glad to be featuring him here now. Below, you can listen to previews for both the new EP, and that elusive ODB remix.

Dada Life - Happy Violence (Timo Juuti & Hector 87 Disco Wobblez Bootleg)

This morning, I recieved a great bootleg of Dada Life's track "Happy Violence" in my inbox. It was done by two producers from Finland named Timi Juuti & Hector 87 and, although it has been out for the last month, I had to post it here. They take the original electro version and turn it in to an upbeat French house tune with a small dubstep breakdown that fits in nicely with the rest of the song. This is the third bootleg these two have done in four months. They previously gave the treatment to M83 and LMFAO, giving both tunes the same "Disco Wobblez" sound. They are releasing an EP together called Woo Chicks & Disco Wobblez that will be out March 5th on La Valigetta. Below I have the Dada Life bootleg, along with the M83 one added as a bonus for not getting this out sooner.
