Happy Friday! While you're waiting for Friday Favorites, your favorite post of the week, let's do a lil news, huh? Today, we've got new Zomboy, a new video from I Am Legion, the release of BT's album, and more in the Daily Newsbyte.

Zomboy Reanimates

Zomboy reanimated ep previews

For his first original EP of 2013, Zomboy is being Reanimated. As a dual release, the four-track EP will see its two dubstep tracks, Terror Squad and Braindead, released on his long-time affiliate label Never Say Die. The other two in the package, a pair of pounding, sharp-synth-driven tracks called Bad Intentions and Raptor, will be released separately on No Tomorrow. Parts 1 and 2 of Reanimated will be out Sept. 9.

Eric Prydz In Concert (EPIC)

Enter fractal heaven with the trailer for Eric Prydz' sequel to the massively popular "Epic" shows (Eric Prydz In Concert), "Epic 2.0." Once you're done being mesmerized by the floating CG graphics, let us know. We'd like to tell you more about "Epic 2.0."

As a follow-up to his '11 "Epic" tour, Eric Prydz will be heading out on a long string of dates with a brand new setup and a slew of new tunes in his arsenal. Without any dates even announced, the info on this is slightly slim, but we know it will be hitting North America, with specific dates announced soon.

I Am Legion Chooses You

The latest video from I Am Legion, the collab project between Foreign Beggars and Noisia, is a dark sequence of dance battles inside an abandoned warehouse set to their next single off their self-titled LP, Choosing For You. Now, back in the day (don't ask me why I know this) to "choose" someone meant to call them out for a fight, and it's pretty obvious what kind of fight we're looking for in this dank warehouse... dance fight! Watch the video here.

The tune itself brings heavy-handed rhymes from the group of lyrical vets, including the first time we've heard one of the Noisia crew's voices, arranged atop a thumping hip hop beat.

"We kinda pieced together ideas from two beats Noisia had made to put this one together," Foreign Beggars' Metropolis tells Rolling Stone. "I think it's the only track with a Noisia voice on it... The track is about letting the music possess you, as good music should when you hear it."
Pre-order the album here before the Sept. 2 release date, and if you're in the area, IAL will be heading out on a European tour Sept. 26 in support of the album.


BT A Song across wires

For his latest full-length, dance music mainstay and veteran producer BT has put together A Song Across Wires

Brian Transeau, also going by BT, has been hailed as one of the most talented producers in the game, and this latest LP is his next piece of evidence. At 12 tracks long, ASAW leads off with the already-unveiled Skylarking, and doesn't let up, offering collabs with Emma Hewitt, Arty, Tritonal, Nadia Ali, and more.
