  • So Global Gathering was last weekend, and I didn’t get to go… I’ll get over it, but I just have one question for you: How are your necks?



As you can see, the event was a major success. According to a poll on GG’s Facebook page, Chase & Status were the top performers of the event, followed by Above & Beyond claiming second, and Skrillex in third (as of now).The organization has announced that they still have a ton of leftover merch for sale. All of which can be perused here. Okay, I’m bored with this topic!

 

I know what you’re really here for, baby birds… Here’s this weeks illest FREE SHIT!

Last but not least, a bit of news:

 

  • Trailer: Skrillex – Owsla (or whatever…)

So Skrillex has released this trailer. It has bass, a skinny kid with eyeliner, and filthy teddy bears. I’m not going to be lie, watching this didn’t improve my life… it confused me. I wonder what he’s promoting? Hmm. Anywhoo, there’s supposed to be another trailer on the way- give us something real, Sonny, oh how you tease us!

Seriously though… Weird video, right? Okay my bass-minded friends, that’s all I have rolled out for you this week. As always, skank on, brothers and sisters.
