DJ/Producer Calvin Harris is readying the release of the follow up to his successful “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1“! This new project promises to bring even more hits for you to groove to. Setting off the roll out with him is PARTYNEXTDOOR with the single, “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready“. Featuring PARTY channeling some of his Jamaican side, he breaks out the patois while dishing lyrics about not settling down, not being ready to have a family, and enjoying the offerings from the bachelor life. Too too sweet. With production that gets you moving, and a video to match, how are you feeling it so far? Stay strapped up, and watch below!
It’s that time again (for those who watch it), for the NFL Super Bowl! In it’s 52nd presentation, fans witness the duel between the New England Patriots, and the Philadelphia Eagles. There are also those who tune in for the moneymaker, the Commercials! One Commercial that popped up was an awkward one by Beverage giant Coca Cola as they presented their latest flavours in their Diet Coke line. Featuring the Mango flavour, ears perked up as a familiar voice was heard in the ad’s music, Dancehall legend Shabba Ranks! The Deejay appears as a sample from Scottish DJ/Producer Sam Gellaitry’s 2015 single, “Long Distance“. The track is featured on the DJ’s debut project, “Escapism” and samples Shabba Ranks’ vocals from his 1988 single “Telephone Love Deh Pon Mi Mind“, a remix to Singer JC Lodge’s hugely popular “Telephone Love“. While the Commercial was not the greatest way to promote a drink, we enjoyed the music. Check out the Commercial below!
International DJ Steve Aoki’s creative process is on god level. With his “Kolony” project, he has been reaching out to other creatives who can help to chef up a masterpiece.

In the video you can see Aoki whipping it like mad Chemist while Jimmy plays the role of Kronos (the Greek god of time), and Bad Royale all black cloaked out ready to perform a ritual. Stay off that foo foo, keep it zen. Big up Steve Aoki, Bad Royale, Jimmy October and the team at Overdose Music Group. Check out the video below!

Sean Paul is the man for real. With a career spanning 20 years and over 26 million records sold, it’s crazy how he can still churn out the hits. Today’s selection is no different as he teams up with popular US DJ Valentino Khan for “Gold“! Featuring the “Dutty Yeah” Artist’s Dancehall lyrics over an EDM production, this is for the girls with a body of Gold that’ll make the men do anything to be in their presence and shine with them. Sean has been on a run with the International collaborations, and there will be no stopping this anytime soon! The single is also featured on DJ Collective Major Lazer’s upcoming Apple Music exclusive Documentary “Give Me Future“, so that’s a huge look for both Artists.
