When we first heard word of A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s collaboration, we we’re stunned that two of our favorite producers decided to get in the studio together. The result, a smashing tune entitled “Tuna Melt” may be our favorite dance track of the recent times and now to make the collaboration even better, our friends at Potato Will Eat You have premiered the Official Music Video for “Tuna Melt”. Featuring an insanely kinetic and perpetual story line of mouse-trap proportioned puzzles and traps, the video is ridiculously clever and original. Fool’s Gold is at it again!! Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think!

Just about a week ago, Diplo, Skrillex, and A-trak revealed a new project with the name “Potato Will Eat You“. Packaged with a couple unique Youtube snippets and a very popular hashtag #PotatoWillEatYou, we were itching to know the idea behind this strange little potato character popping up on all of our news feeds. A few days later our speculations were put to rest and we were excited to learn that Potato Will Eat You is a brand new Youtube Music Network that will rival the golden days of MTV. The network will play host to all original video series including titles, ”Blow Your Head”, “Cosmo’s Crates”, “Short Cuts”, “Listen Up! With Ralph Moore”, “Video Killed The Radio”, “Big Time #1 Super Adventures With Fat Jew”, and “BANG!” plus tons of video & audio premieres, DJ mixes, and much more. The first videos to be released by the future media hub is the first episode of “BANG!” (features tons of amazing Detroit footage) and a preview of “Blow Your Head” and we are very impressed! We will be keeping our eyes peeled to Potato Will Eat You with hopes that they can restore MUSIC into videos! #PotatoWillEatYou

One of our favorite mega-hit tunes of 2012, “Clarity“, from international dance superstar Zedd has been catching a ton of buzz recently. After the release of the beautiful music video, and an extremely special “unplugged” performance of the song on David Letterman, the incredible track is being reworked by some of the finest producers in the game. Scheduled for release on Februray 12th, the “Clarity” Remixes Compilation will feature edits from Tiesto, Felix Cartal, Brillz, Torro Torro, and we expect others as well. In the meantime, we will be bumping these sneak peaks of the compilation! We really love the diversity in remixes and sounds from each producer. This song deserves to be left to the pros and we approve of the jobs we have heard so far. We think you will too!
