When DJ superhero A-Trak joins forces with vanguard production duo Milo & Otis, lock up your stereo equipment… NO BASS IS SAFE. Their irresistibly anthemic collaboration “Out The Speakers” is the first official team-up from these two festival forces (following M&O’s beloved remix with Skrillex and Kill The Noise of Trizzy’s Duck Sauce single “NRG”). They slow down the BPMs to make a speaker-bursting, apartment-evicting monster constructed from screwed rap vocals from ATL’s Rich Kidz, twerked out drums, and what is perhaps mankind’s first recorded “burp drop.” If that’s not enough, festival freaks Caked Up provide a rave-ready uptempo remix, while LA duo Vindata sneak in R&B finger snaps and drum programming worthy of the So So Def Bass All-Stars. Tweeters beware!
Sleepy Tom is Canada’s latest homegrown hotshot putting a unique stamp on modern day dance music.

This filthy cut gets the epic video it deserves thanks to director Ricky Saiz, who follows up his work for Beyonce and Supreme with another iconic clip, capturing the rugged glory and inimitable fashion sense of Harlem and the Diplomats with true uptown-meets-downtown flair.
