Eminem - Rap God (Explicit) [Official Video]

Eminem's "Rap God" is a six-minute tour de force, which finds the Detroit MC showing off a head-spinning display of lyricism while referencing over a dozen rappers. It also got into the Guinness World Records for most words in a hit single. The video, directed by Rich Lee, finds Em parodying Max Headroom and features other pop culture references from media like The Walking Dead, The Matrix and Hellraiser. The song has been certified four times platinum by the RIAA.

Lee Burridge Plays A Breathtaking Set In Bali

International media house Cercle is known for taking some of the best house and techno DJs and recording live sets in cinematic locations. Whether it is Adriatique at the snowy French Alps, Carl Cox at a historic Château de Chambord, or Nina Kraviz inside the Effiel tour, Cercle is continuing to find the best locations for their sets. Recently, they invited Lee Burridge to play their first-ever set in the beautiful coastal city of Bali.

Floating 100 meters over the Indian Ocean, OMNIA Cube in Bali serves as the perfect backdrop for Burridge’s deep house set. Spinning a collection of IDs that blend as one, his ethereal mix is accompanied by picture-perfect shots of the surrounding landscape.
Burridge is a top-class DJ with over three decades pioneering the scene, and it’s clear his love for the culture hasn’t faded. Through his set, he took the chance to join the crowd in dance at the Indonesian resort.

The Martin Garrix Show - End Of Summer Tour

Martin Garrix takes off for Lollapalooza Berlin in the newest episode of The Martin Garrix Show, where his Anima summer tour is set to conclude. Garrix reflects on how sad he is for the tour to end, and he hangs out with fellow artists in the catering area, including previous show-frequenter Dean Lewis.

This episode reaffirms the painstaking process Garrix and vocalists go through in the making of a hit, as shown in previous episodes. Lewis tells a story about how Garrix called him a month after the final version of “Used To Love” was complete, and told him they would need to re-do the entire song. The duo proceeded to do just that, and fans get a sneak peak into how intense Garrix is when it comes to perfecting a piece.

Elon Musk Is Making Euphoric Progressive House.

We bet you didn't expect that one, did you? Elon Musk - a man known more for SpaceX rather than tunes for the beloved Space Ibiza - is a dab hand in the studio judging from his new effort 'Don't Doubt Ur Vibe'.

The Tesla CEO was teasing the track on his Twitter last night and eventually uploaded it to his SoundCloud page, wittily named Emo G Records.

'Don't Doubt Ur Vibe' is a starry progressive house cut, with Elon on vocal as well as production duty. We wonder whether he's been getting tips from his partner, Canadian artist Grimes.

Billie Eilish Makes Grammys History, She Sweep Four Major Categories

Billie Eilish has scripted Grammy history, becoming the first female artist to take home the coveted awards for the ceremony’s four major categories, Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. Eilish is only the second artist to sweep each of the four categories: Christopher Cross was the first to do so in 1981.

Of note, Eilish was the second most nominated artist at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, and she and Lizzo were the first artists to earn nominations in each of the four major award categories since Sam Smith in 2015.

Eilish also took home the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, which brought the 18-year-old vocalist’s count to a staggering total of five awards. “bad guy” nabbed Record of the Year and Song of the Year for Eilish, while WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, the LP from which the high performing single hails, secured her album-focused awards.

Album of the Year is a pivotal victory for the songstress, who is now the youngest individual performer to triumph in this category. The title was formerly held by Taylor Swift, who won the category for 2008’s Fearless.

Calvin Harris Drops Two-Track EP

Calvin Harris has just dropped a two-track EP under his alias, Love Regenerator featuring the essence of the underground. 'Hypnagogic (I Can't Wait)' and 'CP-1' reveal a new side to the popular EDM producer.

Harris announced the project on Twitter earlier this week void of details. With the release of the EP, the Scottish producer revealed that the tracks were heavily impacted by the sounds of “early rave, breaks, techno and house, the music I was obsessed with growing up. In fact, I’ve done everything I can to make them sound like they’ve come from a 1991 time capsule."

Justin Bieber Returns With Steamy New Single “Yummy”

Four years since his last album Purpose, Justin Bieber is gearing for big things in 2020. The former child star announced a new album, docuseries, and tour back in December, when he released a teaser trailer for his new material. Now, Bieber is back with “Yummy,” a new single and our first taste of new music since his return.

The slow-burning single feels like the kind of R&B we’ve come to expect from Bieber, with woozy trap production and a melodic hook reminiscent of his 2016 collaboration with Post Malone. Co-written by longtime collaborator Poo Bear, the track also calls to mind softer, guitar-leaning Poo Bear collaborations like “Hard 2 Face Reality.” Building around an obviously sexual metaphor, Bieber makes an otherwise over-the-top single feel moody and subdued, even if he doesn’t quiet land the Ty Dolla Sign-esque ad-libs. “Hundred racks, help me spend it, babe / Light a match, get litty, babe,” he slurs in the pre-chorus.

Watch Everything Drake's Got To Say About Pusha & Kanye

In a Rap Radar Podcast interview that dropped on Christmas day (Dec. 25), Drake explains why he won't end beef with King Push or Yeezy. As rap fans know, Pusha previously dropped "The Story of Adidon," which is a diss song in which he revealed the existence of Drizzy's son Adonis.

When asked if he'd be open to speaking to Kanye, Drizzy says, "No, not really, because it's not on my end. I had no problem with any of these guys. I don't even know these guys like that."

A Line of Denon DJ Gear Just Got Wi-Fi

Denon DJ has announced an industry first for DJ gear: starting today, a new software update allows its Prime 4 standalone player and its SC5000 and SC5000M media players to directly connect to the internet via Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi. The feature was first beta tested a few months ago, but is now available for all and allows Denon’s devices to play music straight from streaming services. The company’s first partner is Tidal, and it plans to integrate SoundCloud, Beatport, and Beatsource early next year. This rollout means a DJ could show up to a club with Denon gear and play from Tidal’s entire catalog without having to bring any additional hardware.

Built-in internet connectivity feels like a wild landmark feature for a product category in 2019, but DJ gear has mostly stayed away from integrating it. Aside from the complications of inking and carrying out deals with streaming services, the idea of relying on stable Wi-Fi with no latency or dropouts while DJing is still a valid fear.
