August is almost over, which means the same fate for summer before long. Heat things up this week with new tunes from Hot Natured and Kaskade, a great new vid from Bingo Players, details on Krewella's Get Wet album, and more in the Newsbyte.

Kaskade Says I'm Young And Beautiful-er

We know. Who could resist that face? To celebrate this fact, Ryan Raddon, or Kaskade, shared with fans his Lana Del Rey bootie for free (no pun intended). Kaskade takes LDR's spooky and passionate tune into prog house land with big and bold chords atop her haunting vocal tracks. Kaskade, we're gonna love you forever, man--old, ugly, whatever.

DP Drop In On VMAs

MTV's last remaining music video-themed programming, the annual MTV Video Music Awards, went down last night, featuring appearances from stars including Daft Punk, who helped award Taylor Swift her "Moonman" in their controversial appearance.

Yes, after standing up Stephest Colbchella in the name of exclusivity contracts, the disco robots emerged from a giant-sized "Moonman" head in new sparkly outfits to assist Pharrell and Nile Rodgers (who did most of the talking) in handing a statue to Swift, and that was that. The appearance followed a preview of their latest video, which is almost indiscernible from their previous (new outfits, mostly). As the vid for their next single, Lose Yourself To Dance, Daft Punk is joined once again by Nile Rodgers and Pharrell as the four simply perform in their shimmering outfits in front of a small crowd. Daft, just get those other two their own helmets, already.

Overall, EDM was thwarted at the VMAs by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Macklemore, and Ms. Swift. Honestly, who wants a music video award from a company that stopped selling music videos years ago anyway?

Get Ready To Get Wet

Krewella Get Wet album art tracklist

The threesome of Jahan, Yasmine, and Rain Man thought we were needed a little taste of the new album to get more excited. Well, yes and no. We'll take the tracklist they posted to Twitter yesterday including collabs with Gareth Emery, Pegboard Nerds, Travis Barker, and others, but we need no help in getting amped about the debut artist album from one of EDM's biggest crews today.
You heard them. Preorder your copy Tuesday on iTunes, and pick up that instant gratification while you're at it.

Hot Natured Is Heating Up

In more massive debut news from huge-name EDM outfits, Hot Natured, the supergroup comprising Lee Foss, Jamie Jones, Luca C, and Ali Love, have their big-ticket debut coming soon, and the team whipped up a five-track minimix pulling from the new material. Featuring a taste of the vibes we can expect out of the debut full-length, the minimix teases collaborations with names like Lenny Glasgow and Anabel Englund.

The tracklist for the minimix is as follows:

1. Operate feat. Kenny Glasgow
2. Tightrope
3. Alternate State feat. Roisin Murphy
4. Take You There
5. Mercury Rising feat. Anabel Englund

Check out the tracklist and preorder the album here before it releases Sept. 2, and if you're going to Bestival in the UK Sept. 7, don't miss a chance to catch them live.

Bingo Players Fight To The Death

And by bingo players, we meant the elderly lead characters in duo Bingo Players' latest video, the official reel for Buzzcut, released today. The senior citizens compete in no-holds-barred gardening, knitting, and of course bingo, allowing violent urges to get the better of their mature nature. Definitely one of our favorite videos of the year so far. Thanks BP.
