Skrillex, Diplo, and A-Trak have just released a new YouTube channel titled “Potato Will Eat You” which is dedicate to everything dance music. Their first episode “Bang” is now out which dives into a mini documentary of electronic music. Check it out above and make sure to subscribe to their YouTube Channel.
The official video for the Boys Noize & Skrillex collaboration Dog Blood is now out. The video for “Next Order” is trippy as hell. I don’t really know much to say about besides there is a dude who is tripping out on something while thinking he is an astronaut headed for the sun. Check it out above and see what you think.
The day is finally here and Boys Noize’s third studio album Out Of The Black is officially released. This has got to be one of the most diverse and unique albums out this year. Boys Noize doesn’t stray away from his own original sounds from Techno to Hip-Hop. This album is absolutely dope and even ends with a Snoop Dogg vocalized track titled “Got It.” You can stream the album below and make sure to buy it from Beatport.

Boys Noize grabs Snoop Dogg on an upcoming track titled “Got It” which is due out on his next album titled Out Of The Black. You might think this is a weird collaboration at first but once you hit play this track is going to be an instant favorite. Snoop Dogg’s vocals go perfectly over that Boys Noize beat. Check it out below.
Boys Noize has just released the second single off his upcoming album Out Of The Black which is due out October 12th. This track is a little different than his first single “XTC” being that it is a little slowed down and features what sounds like an 80s beat. With that being said it is still a killer Boys Noize track and I can’t wait for the full album.

The video trailer for this new side project by Skrillex & Boys Noize was released last week and now the release of two new tracks have dropped today. Dog Blood as the name of their new project is huge. Skrillex and Boys Noize producing together? That is insane! “Next Order” and “Middle Finger” are the first two tracks they have dropped and I have to say they are both incredible tracks. Check them out below and pick them up on Beatport. Which one is your favorite?

Boyz Noize just released this on his Soundcloud which is taken from his upcoming album ‘Out Of The Black’ due out on October 2nd through Boysnoize Records. You gotta love Boys Noize unique sound and with this snippet I can even feel a little of a 80s influence on the track. Check it out below and make sure to look out for the album in October.
The Hollywood Music Box has closed down today regarding a clash between the current owners and landlord. The Music Box has been one of my favorite venues and within the last year I have seen Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, Avicii, Boys Noize, Rusko, Sidney Samson and R3hab there. It’s a fairly small venue with a capacity of 1,300 however this was completely awesome when it came to shows and being able to get right up front with the DJ. I was actually just here 2 days ago to see Rusko and noticed that a lot of the usual lights and visuals were not being used and now I find out why. Apparently the closure is only going to be short term until they can reach a new agreement. Hopefully it comes back fast because this is a sad day in Hollywood for music goers.
