TAI's latest EP 'Indian Kill' has received a backlash for it's 'racist' and 'ignorant' name and artwork with the release being pulled from his own Soundcloud, the Dim Mak site and all digital stores. Depicted is what looks to be a traditional Native American with an arrow through his forehead and what seems to be blood or tears dripping from his eyes. Although personally we're not too taken back (he's European, Steve Aoki is of Asian decent, this wasn't an intentional idea) it's understandable that if an Aboriginal or any native of any country was illustrated as being [...]

It's been a long time since I've written about either Drop The Lime or Mad Decent , but this short video really struck me. Apart from the cliched video editing, Luca Venezia actually gives some pretty fascinating insight into the current musical landscape. The fact that there isn't really an underground in the electronic scene anymore and the inescapable crush of EDM and are both credited with causing Venezia and others to branch out into unusual new ventures (DTL as a rock & roll singer, Jason Forrest as a [...]

It is clear to see that EDM has been picked up by one fashion house after another as heard in their viral collection videos, on the runway, and booming from the speakers at their boutiques. For the most part, this once again popular music has merely become the updated soundtrack for designers who continue to do what they have always done, create haute couture and ready-to-wear lines that are not quite so accessible to the general public. However, EDM as new multifaceted muse for the fashion industry is beginning to bear some interesting, and more accessible, fruit. Ravewear [...]
