As we already know from his Twitter presence, Bad Bunny is an icon, regardless of what the Latin Grammys think. The video for his new single “Vete” (Spanish for “go away”) tracks flexes on flexes from the reggaeton star. The couple fighting in the beginning suggests a story line, and a closer look at the lyrics shows that this is a classic breakup song. But Bad Bunny is better off without them, as he shows us in the video, and we just want to watch him. We’ll watch him wear those iconic triangle sunglasses, we’ll watch him show off his sports car, we’ll watch him kick back at a party while wearing said glasses and showing off said sports car. And the man has reason to flex: Just days after he called out the Latin Grammys for not recognizing reggaeton, his X 100pre and Oasis (with J. Balvin) albums are both up for the best Latin rock, urban or alternative album Grammy. So party it up, Bad Bunny — and maybe invite us next time?

Leeds via London via the world is the trajectory that Prospa is currently making beautiful and messy noise on.

The electronic duo appears to have the ability to look at the glistening glory days of 90s rave nostalgia, and without trying to replicate it, they are able to blend and weave aspects into something entirely new. It could be said that Prospa is the perfect embodiment of the resurgence of club culture currently happening around us as the people are beginning to fight back for their right to be on a dancefloor amidst club closures, licensing issues and poor representation.

Their latest EP, spearheaded by the single of the same name, ‘Control The Party’, is a heavyweight euphoric anthem that is equally warm and enticing yet hedonistic in all the right ways. Just off of the back of their summer of daylight raves and nighttime escapades at Lovebox, Glastonbury and Parklife, is a true testament that Prospa is helping shape the nightlife culture.

Just because the winter has rolled around doesn’t mean Prospa will be hibernating. Catch them at the legendary Warehouse Project in December, but until then, tune into ‘Control The Party’

As The Chemical Brothers celebrate 20 years of their album ‘Surrender’, one of their biggest hits has been given the remix treatment.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons released their third studio album in June, 1999. Last week, they reissued a special 20th anniversary edition of ‘Surrender’ featuring new remixes from Soulwax, Futureshock, and more.

The electronic dance duo shared full details of the reissue last month after originally announcing it back in June. Available in 3CD and 4LP sets with extra goodies such as a DVD, prints and a book, the news was accompanied by two new mixes of ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl’.

Now, Australian electronic music crew The Avalanches are getting in on the action, sharing a euphoric and mind-bending ‘Surrender To Love Mix’ of one of ‘Out Of Control’, arguably one of The Chemical Brothers’ best records.

Will Lister is releasing a new EP at the end of the month.

Glow marks the fast-rising Londoner’s debut proper on Of Paradise after previously appearing on the imprint’s various-artist compilation, Of Paradise Vol. 2, this past July alongside Interplanetary Criminal, Eluize, Low Tape and others.

Featuring a medley of breaks, deconstructed house and techno, the four-tracker, according to Lister, represents a “change in sound and shift” in his approach to writing music. The title track, which is streaming in full below, is gorgeously lush, loose and cosmic, like inner-tubing across spaceS.

Since his first release three years ago on Phonica Records, Lister has released and appeared on labels such as Joy In Repetition, ANMA Records, Rhythm Section International and YAM Recordings. Earlier this year, he did a split 12″ with New Jackson on Fort Romeau and Ali Tillet’s Cin Cin.
