The future portrayed in BTTF2 was quite spectacular, magical, and spell biding for its time, but how would Marty and the Doc feel if they came to the actual Oct. 21st, 2015?

The DJ’s From Mars Are Back At It Again.

Classically known as ones who call out the cheesy commercialism aspects of commercial EDM in a clever way, the DJs From Mars have returned to expand upon their previous skewering of popular sounds in the mainstream in their video “Phat Ass Drop pt 2.” Released this Thursday, two years after the first installment of the video which “instructed” young producers how to make a typical Top 10 Beatport track, Part 2 covers several types of “trends” that have recently taken the scene by storm.

The video begins by instructing aspiring producers to head to Beatport.com and look up the most popular new sound, which they point out as deep house. After quickly throwing in some generic deep house samples into the foundation of the track, the DJs cite articles from blogs (Dancing Astronaut makes an appearance) saying that deep house is dead, so they turn the track into future house to keep up with what’s cool. Not too long after skewering future house, they then target unoriginal tropical house samples and call it “boring.”

However, the DJs From Mars still haven’t forgotten about big room house as the most copied type of EDM. First, a quick homage is done to Melbourne bounce as the subgenre with light big room overtones that led to popular, yet simple tracks like “Selfie.” But upon instructing producers to view tracklists of the worlds “biggest” DJs like Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Tiesto, and “Chuck Norris,” DJs From Mars eventually conclude that the most surefire way to create a hit is by making a big room track.

Sydney Australia Is Gettin All GeeDup.

Fashion changes drastically from place to place, and touring Australia for a few weeks made me want to look into whats hot in the Land Down under.  The most striking brand I came across was Geedup, an Australian clothing company, started by two brothers. Their style is extremely reminiscent of the Cali streetwear scene, the selection of pieces is wide enough that I could wear a full outfit from them everyday for two weeks and still not have run through them all.  Check the method below.

Established in the summer of 2010, the group of young entrepreneur’s that founded Geedup set up shop in Darlinghurst, and Parramatta, Australia.  I hope at some point they get a location in the States, however, you don’t have to fly to Australia to get your hands on their gear.  Their online shop has a great selection as well as accessories, which you can view by clicking any of the photos in the post, or right here.  I’m making it a priority to grab a few pieces before I head out.

The Final Trailer For The Entourage Movie Is Here.

Warner Brothers just released a new trailer for the cinematic adaptation of the hit HBO series “Entourage.” In what looks like an extremely fun, extended episode of the show, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) and the boys continue to navigate the choppy waters of Hollywood as Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) declares he wants to become a director.  But enough about the plot! The trailer features plenty of bikini-clad ladies, super-cars and yachts — all of which will undoubtedly lure the show’s faithful fanbase into theaters.  The movie also promises myriad celebrity cameos. Some standouts include Warren Buffett and Ronda Rousey, but there are literally too many to name here.

A Brilliant Recap Of 2014… In Rap.


skillzIt’s the 3rd day of 2015, and some people are still stuck in last year.  But Skillz has given folks a way to look back at 2014 in his now traditional “Wrap Up”.  Starting in 2002, and “ending” in 2012, a 1 year hiatus was enough, and Skillz is back with his legendary track, summarizing the previous year. Other artists have attempted to do their own “rap ups”, but Skillz is still the most thorough, funny, and all encompassing version.  Check the method below.
