Jack U Might Have Just Leaked Their Album Release Date

Last night Diplo accidentally posted on Instagram a shot of Jack U fan art with the caption “three days.” It was soon removed but not before some fans were able to grab a screenshot (look below). With nothing else announced for February from EDM’s most dynamic duo, we can only assume this was an information leak for their hyped LP. Three days from last night would mean this release might come either Thursday the 26th or Friday the 27th, so keep your eyes and ears peeled to their various social media accounts; I hear Skrillex likes Snapchat.

Porter Robinson’s “Worlds” Show Recreated With Videos From Fans All Over The World

Those of us lucky enough to catch Porter Robinson on his recent “Worlds” Tour know the feels that go along with that kind of performance.

My own experience with the tour at its stop in Los Angeles was nothing short of mesmerizing – everything was perfect. I was with friends, the lights and sounds were performing just as they were supposed to, and of course the music more »

Kyau & Albert interview

Post by Kyau & Albert. KYAU & ALBERT ARE ABOUT TO RELEASE THEIR NEW ALBUM DISTANT LIGHTS. TRAPSTYLE SAT DOWN WITH THEM FOR A CHAT Your new album is called “Distant Lights”.
