PREMIERE: Destructo feat. YG – Party Up (Vanilla Ace & Dharkfunkh Remix)

Remember Destructo and YG's gangsta G-house collab, Party Up? Stupid question, of course you do! Well, UK natives Vanilla Ace (pictured, right) and Dharkfunkh (pictured, left) have teamed up to unleash their own hood version of the tune, and LessThan3 has the exclusive first listen.

Opening the action with a series of eerie, ominous synths, the duo quickly throws down an irresistibly infectious bassline that even has my pasty white boy self throwing up gang signs. The vibe is similar to Destructo's original party anthem, but there's definitely some extra grit and style thrown in for added measure, and when it comes to G-house, it's all about the grit and style. If you're looking for a track to keep the party rolling late into the night, this is it.

You can pick up the Vanilla Ace and Dharkfunkh remix, as well as remixes from GTA, Earstrip & Torha, and Thee Cool Cats, when Destructo - Party Up feat. YG (The Remixes) drops Sept. 9.

Insomniac Announces BOO, A Halloween Massive In Brooklyn

East coast ravers have a new option for their Halloween haunt this year when Insomniac busts out Boo, a brand new one-night event coming to Barclay's Center in Brooklyn Oct. 31.

Insomniac's editorial team shared the news today along with several wicked-good horror puns on their site, but no information has been made available beyond the event's location and date of Halloween, in addition to it being 18-and-over.

Boo should also scare Made Event and parent company SFX, as this is Insomniac's first foray into the East coast Halloween game and could be a deliberate attempt to frighten off Robert Sillerman's event giant. According to SFX' most recent quarterly report, SFX and mass media company Clear Channel have plans to "... host two new EMC (Electronic Music Culture) festivals near Halloween in 2015." An annual report released in December lays out the company's currently held trademarks, including an interesting spin-off on Electric Zoo: "Electric Boo."

By launching this year, Insomniac will get a 12-month jump on Made and SFX while effectively derailing their brand concept by taking the term "Boo" for themselves.

Slander’s New Remix Keeps Us ‘Up All Night’

To many it may seem like LA duo Slander's recent rise in popularity has come out of nowhere, although producers Scott Land and Derek Anderson have been hard at work releasing hugely popular heaven trap edits of songs through their SoundCloud page for quite some time now. After releasing a decent catalog of edits, the duo has announced their first official remix for Arty's Up All Night.

Adding their signature trap percussion and melodic house synths to Arty's track, the duo have transformed the progressive house single into a pulsating, trap-inspired masterpiece. The energy that flows through the remix is absolutely electric and proves that Slander is up to the task of taking on bigger productions. It's yet another track from the duo that shows that they mean business.

The track is currently set to release on Insomniac/Interscope on Sept. 9 so keep your eyes and ears open for the official release. Also, be sure to catch Slander on phase II of their Ascension Tour.
