Settle For Gold

As one of the hottest albums of 2013, Settle has been smashing up the charts on its way to recently awarded Gold status in the UK.
Big congrats to the brother duo of Guy and Howard Lawrence on their game-changing artist album debut, and here's hoping they join Zedd in making it to platinum status.

The Urban Animal Plans For Release

As the second single off his much-anticipated artist album, Urban Animal, Claude VonStroke shared a preview of Dood today, which features a strutting bassline and all the originality we've come to expect from the captain of the dirtybird squad. Apparently, the tune is one of the filthier on the album, and was written as an homage to the time CVS spent in LA during the production of the album, aiming to capture the exciting and dark energy of the massive metropolitan area.

Pick up Urban Animal when it drops Sept. 24, and catch Claude on his Urban Animal tour with J.Phlip beginning in his home base of San Francisco Oct. 4 at the Regency Ballroom. Dates below, tickets here (Pre-sale avail. Aug. 14).

Avicii Allows Fans To Unveil Album Art

Avicii true album art

In an interesting experiment, the Avicii camp is revealing the artwork for his artist album, True, via a tweet system and dedicated reveal site.

Due out Sept. 17, the image above is believed to be the official album art, but fans can tweet their #TRUEREVEAL tweets and bring the art closer to being exposed on the landing page as a result of the speakers playing louder and louder, cracking the glass in front of the album. Clever, huh? Check out the setup and learn more here.

A Surge Of Remixes

Clockwork Surge remix

Clockwork's massively popular Surge saw its remix package hit digital shelves today, featuring reworks by Tony Romera, Riggi & Piros, Deorro, and one from Charlie Darker, which we happen to have a copy of available for free just for you guys, courtesy of Clockwork and Dim Mak.

Darker's remix is just that--a bit darker. While the original passes along an uplifting feeling of anticipation, Charlie Darker's contribution to the six-item EP, available here, leans more toward the techno side of the spectrum, with the original chords and synth modified for that dark and grimy aesthetic. Download the free copy here.
