Prior to their massive Brownies & Lemonade Miami show, the minds behind the event stated that Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize) have new music on the way.
Alongside the new music announcement, Brownies & Lemonade shared some interesting facts about the duo. Their upcoming Miami Music Week show will be their first ever non-festival performance, and they are currently in Germany working on the material.

Up-and-coming French producer Plastic Toy has teamed up with DJ Snake for smooth single "Try Me." The track marks DJ Snake's first release on his own Premiere Classe Records, as well as Plastic Toy's debut release, something that surely ought to set him up for a bright future.
"Try Me" is a smooth summer anthem, immediately getting into action with DJ Snake's signature vocal chops and feelgood piano chords. The drop is dominated by bright leads and plucks as mid-tempo drums contribute to the laid-back, summery feeling.
On the topic of "Try Me," Plastic Toy said:
"The most interesting thing in this song for me, is the lead synth that comes in with the drop. With DJ Snake, we pushed the track to a whole new level, giving it that powerful and melodic sound. Working with Snake was very inspiring. He has the ability to feel the music and what’s going to sound good.”
There is no info to be found online confirming Plastic Toy's real identity, although the below tweet might hint towards young French producer Petit Biscuit.FOLLOW DJ SNAKE:

RL Grime and Alison Wonderland threw down a very special b2b set at ODESZA‘s Sundara Music Festival over the weekend and it was HYPE (sorry for the caps, but just feel our excitement about this).
The two producers threw down a rowdy mix of their own music with trap bangers galore. They made room for plenty of classics, but still kept the crowd guessing. It was everything you’d want to hear in a b2b and more.
From the sounds of it, they had just as much fun on stage together as fans did in the crowd…

Those hoping to headbang and listen to heavy dubstep on Getter’s current Visceral tour are likely to be disappointed — but that’s not an affront on their tastes, nor is it a cruel joke perpetrated by Getter. Rather, the tour is showcasing Getter’s album Visceral, out last year, nothing more, nothing less.
Still, Getter is true to his fans, and after hearing criticism of his tour set, he vowed to modify some things to broaden the appeal. Even then, he was still booed and heckled at Stereo Live in Houston last night on tour for playing the music he loves.
Getter has remained silent on the matter most of today, until he finally tweeted out recently. “Boo me all you want, I’m still doing this shit,” he concludes.
His Visceral tour continues tonight at Stereo Live in Dallas.
fuck it man i’m havin fun
