Borgeous Bottoms Out With “Ride It” Ft. Sean Paul

14 April 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when you thought Borgeous couldn’t get Borgeous-er, he releases a track that makes you mourn the death of Edm all over again. It was already painfully obvious that the Los Angeles-based “producer” barely contributed any creative input to his releases – and his Rvssian and M.R.I collaboration, “Ride It” featuring Sean Paul, is an even worse aggressor than “Souls” was.

Falling in line with Borgeous’ bland, homogenized brand of dance music, “Ride It” doesn’t really commit to any real artistic statement. It’s kind of big room, kind of trap, and kind of pop, but it’s all filler and comes across as something that a board room of marketing professionals determined would appeal to the largest number of demographics possible.

Apparently, “Ride It” is one of several tracks that will come out on Borgeous upcoming album – which will also feature collabrations with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, »

Trailer For Swiss Army Man

4 April 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

If you’ve seen the video for DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s Turn For What, you’ll know what an insane piece of genius it is. Well, brace yourself for Swiss Army Man, the feature debut from that video’s directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (collectively known as Daniels). Starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, the movie follows the desperate and lonely Hank (Dano), driven to suicide after years trapped on a desert island. His attempt to kill himself is interrupted when a corpse named Manny (Radcliffe) washes ashore. Whether or not Hank is actually hallucinating the fact that Manny is talking to him (in between farting. Alot), the two become fast friends and embark on a magical and surreal journey to get Hank home. Swiss Army Man certainly promises to be a weird one, but, god damn it, Daniels have certainly come up with something intriguing here, »

Diplo Uploads DJ Set From Xs Las Vegas’ 7th Anniversary Party

29 March 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There aren’t a great many artists big enough to help the top grossing nightclub in the world celebrate its seventh anniversary. Hip-hop and bass music icon Diplo fits the bill, though, and he’s uploaded his two-and-a-half-hour set from the March 21st celebration to his SoundCloud account for everyone who wasn’t able to attend.

Before going in, though, it’s worth noting that this was one of Diplo’s more mainstream-friendly performances. Las Vegas nightclubs go for a very specific sound – so where his recent Diplo and Friends set showcased his expert ear for hip-hop, his Xs performance predominantly consisted of big room house and ringtone rap edits.

That said, Diplo‘s DJ set at Xs Las Vegas’ 7th anniversary celebration certainly still had its gems. He was nice enough to scrawl out a tracklist as well, so if you hear something you like then find it by »

Exclusive Interview: Borgeous Talks Building An Army And Getting His Start In Edm

24 March 2016 2:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few artists have experienced such a quick rise to fame as American producer Borgeous has. After sending shockwaves around the Edm community in 2013 with his massive breakout tracks “Tsunami” and “Stampede,” he followed them up the year after with songs like “This Could Be Love,” “Wildfire” and “Invincible,” quickly cementing himself as an artist to watch.

Since then, Borgeous has found himself playing on main stages around the world at some of the largest Edm festivals, all while continuously putting out music that spans multiple genres and always gets people moving on the dance floor. Along the way he’s also built himself one hell of fanbase that he calls the Borgeous Army. And, with a debut album on the horizon, 2016 looks to be another incredible year for the DJ

Last week in Miami, after his set at Ultra Music Festival, we caught up with Borgeous for a quick interview. »

Inside Sundance 2016's Craziest Movie: 'Swiss Army Man'

26 January 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

One day, just a few short years ago, Daniel Kwan leaned over to his creative partner Daniel Scheinert and said the 17 words that would change both of their lives forever: "We need to make a movie about a man who rides a farting corpse across the ocean."

The directorial duo, who met in an animation class at Emerson College and now collectively credit themselves as "Daniels," had always thrived by latching on to spectacularly bad ideas. Similar strokes of juvenile genius had provided inspiration for their oddball shorts (i.e. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Swiss Army Man’

22 January 2016 7:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel Radcliffe plays a flatulent corpse whom a wilderness-stranded Paul Dano rides to safety in “Swiss Army Man,” an off-the-wall absurdist existential comedy from viral- and music-video oddballs the Daniels (Aka Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan). On one hand the most singularly unique competition title to debut at Sundance in ages, while on the other, a project still in drastic need of development (despite a tour through five different Sundance Institute labs, including one for mixing all those fart effects in Dolby Atmos), this movie wears its weirdness as a badge of honor — as well it should.

Imagine “Cast Away” meets “Weekend at Bernie’s,” as directed by Michel Gondry. The result represents not just independent cinema, but an emerging strand of what might be called “indifferent cinema” — wildly iconoclastic personal visions whose creators don’t seem especially concerned about the ultimate commercial fate of their movies (beyond whatever assurances »

Sundance Exclusive: Photos Of ‘Swiss Army Man’ Starring Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe & Mary Elizabeth Winstead

22 January 2016 10:29 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s no shortage of directors who honed their craft on music videos and made the leap to narrative drama, and often they’re some of the most creative directors on the block. Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Mark Romanek, David Fincher, Flora Sigismondi, Antoine Fuqa, Tarsem, and many more have graduated to features, and next up in line for big things could be “The Daniels,” a.k.a. Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, a filmmaking duo who won the Best Director prize at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2014 for DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s "Turn Down for What,” and helmed creative videos for The Shins, Foster the People, and many more.
