We’ve been sleeping on this one for like two weeks, but it definitely deserves to be posted. Thunderbird Gerard is a rapper/producer with a really cool electro-tinged hip hop style. I’m a big fan of this EP, which is saying something as I’m not a guy to listen to hip hop unless its really fucking good. Definitely give this one a listen. Enjoy!

After dropping their sixth track off this massive 10-track collaboration Animal LP titled “Burn The Block” yesterday, Bro Safari & the mysterious UFO! are back with the full-length LP for free download. Animal LP features 10 massive trap & hip-hop originals full of all the thunderous 808 drums and hip-hop samples that one could only dream of; you may even find some dubstep tunes hidden among the ruckus. Bro Safari mentioned that this album has been in the works for over one year now due to scheduling conflicts, but we’re beyond stoked that it’s finally here. Definitely worth the wait.
“All we ask is that you listen to it with an open mind, share it with your friends and come say hello whenever we play a show in your city.”
Here it is. The album that we’ve been talking about for over a year. Scheduling conflicts be damned, we made it happen! Yes, the process was long, and at times it was even a little grueling, but we stuck to our guns and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Originally, we created about 16 tracks for the album, and then we narrowed it down to the songs that you have in front of you today. It was important to us that we create a collection of music that crossed multiple styles and genres, yet told a coherent story. It’s not an easy thing to do, but we feel like we pulled it off by using themes, samples, techniques and by consciously assessing what did and did not work together.
We feel like there is something for everyone on this record and we’re very pleased with the fact that we can offer this to everyone for free. All we ask is that you listen to it with an open mind, share it with your friends and come say hello whenever we play a show in your city.
So, once again – Thank you to each and every person that showed us support over the last few years. We love working together, and have already discussed plans for a follow up album.
For now, enjoy ANIMAL!

After news broke earlier this month that Kanye West was recruiting help from Skrillex & Daft punk to produce tracks off his upcoming album Yeezus out June 18, we’ve all been excited to hear what these new tracks will sound like.
“It was very raw,” Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter explained after a recent studio session with Kanye West. “He was rapping – kind of screaming primally.”
Last night Saturday Night Live finished up their season with a performance from non-other than Kanye West who premiered two of his new tracks titled “New Slaves” & “Black Skinheads” off of Yeezus. A clip of the performance can be seen below.
We have no official confirmation that this is indeed Daft Punk behind the boards on this new track, but all signs are starting to point in this direction, especially with Thomas Bangalter’s descriptive statement given above after his time working with Kanye in the Paris studio.
What do you think of this new track? Does it sound like it could be the legendary French duo to you? We think so.

Like Whaaat! I’ve been bumping this original track for MONTHS and finally someone from the EDM world has come in and remixed this huge hip-hop club anthem “Like Whaaat” by Problem featuring Bad Lucc into a massive trap/hip-hop banger mad strictly to tear the clubs up. Mad props to fellow Los Angeles artist Salva for taking on this tune. “Like Whaaat” dropped on Problem’s Welcome To Mollywood 2 mixtape back in August of 2012 and has been tearing up the DatPiff charts ever since, so I suggest you grab your free copy if you haven’t already.
Just did this remix for LA’s new favorite rapper. This one is S.T.R.I.C.T.L.Y. for the club. S/O YOUNG CALIFORNIA <3

The legend Wyclef Jean from 90s Hip-Hop group, The Fugees, returns from a LONG hiatus with the Troy Ave featured ‘April Showers’. ‘April Showers’ serves as the title track from his recently released mixtape of the same name. Produced by Sedeck Jean, this track sounds like a winner to me, it proves that the legends still got it. That boy Troy Ave has flow as well. I’ve been keeping my eyes and ears tuned on him. You should too! Enjoy!
