Kid Sis, Paul Wall, and Bun B make for one of the more unlikely team-ups in rap, but they all come together (and rip it!) on “Im’ma Get It,” a Travis Barker-produced cut off Paul’s new LP, Heart Of A Champion, out today. One for your trunk!
If you missed the festival debut of Duck Sauce (featuring A-Trak, Armand Van Helden, and…an enormous inflatable duck) at EDC, fret not: Trizzy has you covered with this great video recap and pics from the night, along with some shots from his Travis x A-Trak performance at the same fest.

Electrodiscomaniacs, rejoice! Alexander Robotnick’s new Analog Sessions LP is out this week, courtesy of our pals at This Is Music.

Download the club mix of “Fun Fare” at Fact Magazine for a taste, and look for the LP at a shop near you (Amazon.co.uk is shipping the CD+DVD combo later in the month).

After getting people hyped with the music video, and a packed month of “More Fire” tour dates, it’s only right that Congorock’s “Babylon” finally sees official release. The single features a massive vocal version with dancehall don Mr Lexx (the voice behind Major Lazer’s “Hold The Line” and many more lighter-flickers), the instrumental dub you already know and love from the video, and a “Lexxapella” for the DJs to play with. Big!
