He came onto the scene at around the same time as Ellie Goulding even teaming up together on a killer duet of Robyn's "Be Mine." One of Erik's latest singles "Are You Leaving" happens to be my favorite.
Take a listen.

Wynter Gordon is gearing up for the release of her debut album With The Music I Die and to gear up for it myself I'm getting into anything and everything I can find by this promising new talent.
"Renegade" is produced by Static Revenger for the Trouble with Wynter Mixtape.
It's easily the best song from the mixtape.
Judge for yourself!

I had a wonderful time chatting with out pop sensation Diamond Rings today discussing everything from his recent tour opening for Swedish Sensation Robyn, our affinity towards new indie-act Austra, his most recent concert experience as an audience goer (It was Kylie Minogue!!!! I so wanna go see her now), and his recent signing with Astralwerks, where he's now being represented by the same record label as Kylie Minogue, Empire of the Sun, Phoenix, David Guetta, Pet Shop Boys, Brian Eno and Swedish House Mafia!
What an honor and a compliment!
He's excited to be a part of a new wave of singers and entertainers who are starting their careers out of the closet from the get-go and are making a huge positive impression for our current younger generation.
He's an awesome guy and I'm so excited to share this interview with you all over on AfterElton.com in our next New Music Mix on Tuesday, June 21st!

I'll be interviewing John O aka Diamond Rings tomorrow at 2pm. While scrolling through some of his videos tonight, I'm taken aback by how talented he is. His videos are all so fresh and entertaining and it's hard to believe that this larger than life voice is coming from this 25 year-old guy. I'm excited to find out what he's like.

I know I'm a few months late to chime in on this, but The Strokes latest album Angles is in fact
as good as it has been acclaimed to be and this gem "Machu Piccu" is currently on repeat. UPDATE: It's not that good. This song is probably the best on it. I didn't even care for the lead single "Under Cover of Darkness" suprisingly.

Thursday night was spent dancing my @$$ off to Benny Benassi DJing at the Mid in Chicago. It was an incredible experience and my first big DJ night. The show was sold out and packed to capacity and was just indescribly fun. I got right up in the front of the mosh pit with the cool air horns blowing down as Benassi spun hits like his track "Cinema," his latest project with Chris Brown "Beautiful People" and Swedish House Mafia's excellent new track "Save the World Tonight." Here is some of the footage of the night.
Swedish House Mafia's "Save The World Tonight"
Chris Brown's "Beautiful People"
Over the weekend I caught Janelle Monae in concert on her "Hooligans in Wonderland" Tour with Bruno Mars at the Aragon in Chicago. She was every bit as remarkable a performer as I had expected as she belted out hit after hit on her exceptional album The Archandroid. Enjoy
"Dance Or Die"

This was a while back but worth a post, Simian Mobile Disco are easily one of my favorite electronic producers/remixers/djs. Their sound is just so fresh and so original.
James Ford who makes up one half of this dynamic duo produced "Dog Days Are Over" and three other tracks off Florence & The Machine's outstanding debut album Lungs.
Here are two highlights from their killer show at the Mid in Chicago on March 16, 2011
