Diplo Twerks For The Record Books

In a very serious-looking press release, Diplo notified the dance music community of a plan of his to twerk his way into history with "Butts Around The World," or something. Basically, we're going to see a lot of twerking during his set at EZoo '13.

Elaborating in an Instagram video, Diplo said he's looking to give out 50 passes to Electric Zoo this weekend for the best twerk video submissions and bring the winners up on stage to help him make twerking history with his plans of the largest #twerkwall ever.

Interested ratchets need only apply at twerk4diplo[at]gmail[dot]com with their video, and Diplo will select 50 girls to win free tickets and to be admitted on stage as part of the record-setting twerk wall. Get those booties clappin'!

Hilary Duff to make EDM

As the next of Disney's child stars to chase down the dance music bandwagon, Hilary Duff announced during a Twitter chat sponsored by Idolator that her forthcoming album will have dance music influences, and that she is "super into EDM."

Hilary Duff into EDM

Catchy hooks? Lyrics? It's great to know she understands what's important to the EDM community. Oh, wait... you "love 2 dance." Nevermind, you get it. Read the full story from InTheMix here.

A Brand New Metropolis

Metropolis pt. 2 remixed owsla

The enigmatic and endlessly creative trio of The M Machine dropped a nine-track remix collection of their latest LP, Metropolis pt. 2, today on OWSLA.

Digitalism kicks us off with a high-energy disco version of Moon Song, and OWSLA brother Kill The Noise follows up to exorcise their equipment with bass in his dubstep version of Ghosts In The Machine.

The trio offer one brand new original on the nine-item remix package, a breaks-flavored electro house tune titled Data Palace. Tantrum Desire drops a D&B version of Schadenfreude, Proxy delivers an light and airy take on Faces, and more round out the release for a diverse revisiting of the San Fran outfit's second showing. Pick it up here today.

Kaskade Boards SFO To ORD

As the next taste of his forthcoming Atmosphere artist album, Kaskade takes fans on a flight from SF to Chi-town in SFO To ORD. The tune is a smooth house groove with pretty classic elements, however the minute-long preview cuts off just before what sounds like a drop, so Raddon may still surprise us with this one. But for now, add one deep and cheerful groove alongside the epic vibes of the title track, Atmosphere, set to release Sept. 10 on Ultra. Preorder here.
