Spring Breakers: bikini babes and Skrillex – a definite hit at the box office

The movie's already debuted at the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival and the Oslo Internatiol Film Festival. Having gathered an impressive 7.1 on IMDB, this movie seems to have something to offer. Trailers usually give away the best parts in the movie. So if there are conclusions to be drawn from it, it's that the 7.1 rating reflects the amount of bikini boobs you'll see per frame. We're not going to disect the plot that's surely very complex and intruiging. Rather we'd like to turn your attention to the fact that the horror-flick is probably going viral in after it's going to make the debut in the wider circles. The reason, besides the persistant lack of clothing on the four main characters, to go see this movie is its soundtrack.


The brainchild of Sonny Moore is represented with 3 tracks on this one! No soft-ass Skrillex here. That's right, I don't agree with Gabi's article on the latest EP 'Leaving' is not barking up my tree one bit. However, I'll tell you what I do appreciate: the tracks chosen for this soundtrack – Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites, With Your Friends (Long Drive) and the immaculate remix of 'Going Down' by fellow label mates Birdy Nam Nam.

Sonny recently worked on Disney's 'Wreck-it Ralph' animation, showing his not afraid to do whatever's in front of him. He just wants to showcase his brand of dubstep ..and, sure enough, make a lot of money doing it. No doubt some of his best productions will suit perfectly a movie about 4 college girls robbing restaurants and getting involved with drug dealers.

Check out the official trailer!

A-Trak, Araabmuzik and ASAP Rocky stealing the spotlight at Letterman’s

Letterman must've gotten a pretty big boost on the last show. A lot of talent present at the studio with Araabmuzik and A-Trak  performing their magic on the turntables while ASAP Rocky's doing his thing. Of course we're more impressed about the DJs LIVE performances than ASAP doing a track from his 'Long Live ASAP' album. While many big-time DJs have been on various talk-shows, like Ellen and the likes – there haven't been many who show their skills off in proper fashion. Usually these are the occasions when 'button pushing' is the imperative. Nevertheless, this is quality performance, pumping on all cylinders enjoy the video with Araabmuzik and A-Trak in their elements! Oh, and if you're a Zedd fan – check out his appearance on Letterman's show!


Phat basslines and heavy noise from a new Moog synthesizer – analogue fiends be aware!

Recently, Moog Music Inc. published a preview of their latest analog synthesizer on Youtube. Synth pioneer and collaborator of Bob Moog, professor Herb Deutsch, visited the Moog Machine Shop during Moogfest 2012. He got to test the prototype in its research & design phase. Moog Music commented:

"In the past, Bob Moog always tested his ideas, instruments and sounds with musicians and colleagues. This spirit of collaboration continues at the Moog factory to this day and is essential to our work. It is a key part of the product development process, as it furthers our ideas and helps us shape better tools for musicians."


Also, they've announced: "Making its official debut at NAMM 2013, the first 24 of these new instruments are being handcrafted at the Moog Factory this week. Until you get a chance to see it in its final form at NAMM 2013, please enjoy this video. Love, your friends at Moog."

In case you haven't heard what NAMM is, then head to their official page: "NAMM, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), commonly called NAMM in reference to the organization's popular NAMM trade shows, is the not-for-profit association that promotes the pleasures and benefits of making music and strengthens the $17 billion global music products industry."
