Get Out Of Jail Free.

International tours, EDC appearances, Festival sets, Vegas gigs, and never ending music studio hours can do a good job of keeping two friends apart. But for the first time in over a year, DJ Storm and DJ Jeff Phantom have teamed up again for another multi-genre mish-mash of mashups. ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ sticks closer to the the electronic music side of the fence, and where it does feature hip hop, it does so with remixes.  However, the ebb and flow of the 65 minute long mix features a range from House, to Twerk, to Trap that is sure to keep any listener entertained.  Check out a demo below, and click the photo above to download.

SNL makes fun of EDM DJ’s

The EDM community has spread this video faster than an Avicii single, but we here at the blog still needed to write about it, even though most music enthusiasts have seen it.  As a DJ myself, I know personally there are quite a few times when you let a song play for a bit, and have nothing to do with your hands.  “EDM Event” DJ’s have managed to find a way around this by fist-pumping (a despicable practice) or doing other things to appear as if they’re doing something dramatic in the booth.  SNL has taken certain new fads in the DJ industry to new nights in their new spoof, poking fun at Avicii, how much money EDM DJ’s pull in, and the crowd reaction to… not really that much going on.  Check out this hilarious viral video below.

3D Printed Bionic Ear

Scientists over at Princeton University have combined electronics with biology to create a 3D printed bionic ear. The artificial organ is a result of the team’s exploration into using the prototyping technique to print out cells and nano particles. Purchasing a basic 3D printer online, the researchers, lead by michael alpine, an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, used the additive technology–which allowed them to render the complex topology of the ear–to layer a matrix of hydrogel and calf cells (which eventually develop into cartilage) to build up the form; along with silver nano particles to form an antenna. The thin sensory appendage is coiled within the tissue-like structure, with two wires leading from the base of the ear, wrapping around a helical cochlea that ultimately connects to electrodes. It is the team’s first attempt at developing a fully functioning organ, and the intended use of the resulting organ could be used much like a hearing aid, to restore or advance human hearing.

Scrooser – Electric Scooter

Scooters are great, they’re supposed to make distances in cities shorter thanks to some pushes. Problem is, you arrive at your meeting with a lot of sweat and have to change and lose time again. Enters Scrooser. Being a mix between the scooter and a cruiser, the Scrooser is a kind of Harley Davidson for sidewalks. With a little bit of electronic, one foot push is worth 4 traditional pushes. Of course, it allows both fast travelling and relaxed cruising.

The Smirnoff Mindtunes Project – Making Music Through Brainwave Technology


Picture 3

Smirnoff has joined forces with British electronic music producer DJ Fresh and PhD Julien Castet, a leading brainwave technology expert, to enable a group of physically disabled music fans – Andy, Mark and Jo – to create a music track controlling musical software with nothing but their mind. The project, named Smirnoff Mindtunes, is the first of its kind and focusses on how technology can be used to transform brain activity and emotions into music, “enabling physical barriers to musical creativity to be broken down.” Supported by Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF), The Smirnoff Mindtunes project aims to raise money for the charity through proceeds of the sale of the track.

Skrillex And The Doors – Breakn’ A Sweat


“Breakn’ a Sweat” is a song by American electronic music producer Skrillex. It is the third track on his fourth EP, Bangarang. It features guest vocal and musical contributions from the American rock band The Doors. It was created for the 2012 documentary film Re:Generation. Musically, “Breakn’ a Sweat” has heavy influences of dubstep, electro house and progressive house. It contains a vocal sample from a 1960s interview with Jim Morrison, while the remaining members of The Doors and Skrillex did the chants. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, with some highlighting it as the standout track from the EP.

The ‘Smart’ Surfboard.


I love surfing, and as most true surfers can tell you, surfing is a sport governed by feelings.  But the driving forces behind the joint project, PUKAS and TECNALIA, aim to “turn feelings into facts and figures” and provide as yet unquantified data that can be directly applied to improve the features of surfboards, the technical performance of surfers and/or measurement of parameters during competition. Check the method below.

Water Shade Concept.


Designed by Yitu Wang, this project is completely apolitical. It IS literally a gate of water. This project goes by the name of “Water Shade” and keeps a shield of H2O around the fruit it is sworn to protect. It’s both a dish and a cover, working with water to keep freshness in and everything larger than Oxygen OUT! Designer Yitu Wang doesn’t want to keep you from your delicious apples though, so there’s a built in detector that sees your hand in approach, and thus is does desist.

Moisture is locked in. Freshness is locked in. Flies are locked out. Dust is locked out. And when you come up and decide you’d love to have a strawberry, as soon as your hand gets near, the streams in that area stop. You’ll remain dry. Dope sauce.
