The Aphex Twin Mystery Grows With A Logo Appearing In Hollywood
Aphex Twin is definitely up to something. A 3D version of his iconic logo has started popping up around the world, including in London and Turin. Now his logo has made its way stateside, all the way to Hollywood, California.
The new Aphex Twin logo is located at the Amoeba Music record store in Hollywood. This version of the logo is hidden in ivy hanging on the side of the building, making it hard to notice unless you knew to look for it. LA-based music shop Perfect Circle Audio first posted the sighting of the logo.
Aphex Twin’s logo first popped up at the Elephant & Castle underground tube station in London, and then in Turin, Italy. Aphex Twin has conducted sneaky marketing campaigns like this in recent memory, usually to hype a new album or EP release. After being away for several years, the famed producer returned in 2014 with his album Syro, and has since released new music in many forms.
Will we soon be getting new music from Aphex Twin? It seems all but guaranteed at this point, but keep your eyes peeled.
Everything We Know About Deathpact & The First Single "Danger"
Deathpact is a name many didn’t recognize when it showed up on the tracklist for Rezz’s new album. A collaborator on the track “Life & Death,” Deathpact remains a mystery. However, some recent revelations have begun to spin a web of intrigue that should eventually lead to more information and more banging music.
Ten days ago, a website appeared that was a supposed ARG (alternate reality game). Users on reddit struggled to find the hidden meaning and pages of the website, but on the site’s page now, it lists a number of users who have seemingly made it all the way through. It also lists what seems to be a reddit directory, “r/Blue_square,” but no such directory currently exists.
Fans can call the number 917-283-2750 to begin their journey.
There have also been a number of sightings of Deathpact posters across the country, from LA and San Francisco to New York City, with various cities in between. The sightings have either been full poster walls, or stickers covering the faces of ads already presented.
And finally, the release of Deathpact’s debut single “Danger” five days ago. The track has an obvious dark and ominous tone, which is no surprise given Rezz’s choice to collaborate. With Rezz’s album just around the corner, we don’t expect another single in the meantime, but we’re sure we’ll be hearing more from Deathpact soon after.
"Be Prepared," Don Diablo Fans! Something HUGE Is Coming [VIDEO]
Don Diablo dropped his latest album, FUTURE, earlier this year in February. It’s been one of our favorite albums of the year, no doubt, but fans can now expect “something big” to come from Don Diablo later this year in the form of FUTURE XL.
With little information to go on, it’s unclear exactly what FUTURE XL could be. FUTURE has already released a deluxe version of the album, so a remix album is a good guess. Another guess is that it’s going to be another new album with new material along the same sonic lines as FUTURE. That one seems a little less plausible, but is still within the realm of possibilities.
What we do know for absolute certain is that whatever FUTURE XL is will be happening on December 8. It’s still a long way off, but we doubt that Don will leave us wanting for extra info in the time between now and then.
Take a look at the teaser video below and let us know if you think you can figure it out!
Did Sebastian Ingrosso Just Confirm Another Swedish House Mafia Show?
It seems impossible to escape the Swedish House Mafia rumor mill after their reunion at Ultra Music Festival earlier this year. Declarations of “Swedish House Mafia for life” fueled the first batch of rumors, suggesting more shows in the future; newer moves from Swedish House Mafia like deleting all their posts on Instagram have also raised some eyebrows.
Today, however, could be the most curious piece of all. Sebastian Ingrosso posted a photo on his Instagram story of what looks to be a lineup at a venue called Krusmynta Garden in Vispy, Sweden. The event is apparently in cooperation with 2 Fresh Entertainment, and features performances from Vargas & Lagola, Oskar Linnros, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Seinabo Sey, and Swedish House Mafia.
Now, the strange thing here is that there’s no significant Google search results for Krusmynta Garden except for some Trip Advisor blog entries. And as for 2 Fresh Entertaiment, nothing remotely having to do with dance music comes up – seriously, the top entry on Google is for, uh, this.
So what we have is a photo for a venue with no footprint, a promoter that doesn’t exist, and a lineup that isn’t found anywhere else… what’s going on here? We have no idea.
The only thing to do at this point is wait and see, but we wish they’d just come out and say something.
Mystery Woman Caught Allegedly Kissing Tristan Thompson Identified
Reports are beginning to emerge alleging that Tristan Thompson, the father Khloe Kardashian's as-yet-unborn child, may have engaged in some unfaithful behaviour with a mystery lady. The Cleveland Cavalier has been spotted entering his Manhattan hotel with a woman who has now been identified as Lani Blair, and new information is beginning to reveal some information about this strip club employee.
Blair is popular on Instagram, having accumulated over 363,000 followers; however, her once public prile has now gone private amid her alleged involvement in this public scandal. Blair is reportedly 28 years-old, having been born on June 6, 1989, and has a penchant for showcasing her killer frame in revealing clothing on social media.
One Twitter sleuth was also able to locate a particularly incriminating video Blair dancing at a club in Cleveland, the place residence for both Thompson and his mama-to-be; could this be how the two first met?
With the pressional power forward's high-prile girlfriend is soon to give birth to their first child, reports like these are sure to muddle the last few moments Kardashian's pregnancy.
Future, Rae Sremmurd, & A Mystery Guest Will Headline Billboard Hot 100 Fest
This year's Billboard Hot 100 Fest is looking to be a must-buy ticket this summer if you're looking to see some great hip-hop acts, with some stacked headliners and even a mystery performer.
The headliners this year include Future, Rae Sremmurd, DJ Snake, and a mystery performer who, according to Complex, is a woman.
Now, realistically, this mystery performer could be any female artist popular enough to fit a headliner slot at a big music festival like this. But if we apply a little logic, and a lot faith, we can make some educated guesses.
The first, and most obvious, choice would be none other than Cardi B. If we're talking about female artists who have exploded the Billboard Charts this year and last year, there's no better candidate. Not to mention that Invasion Privacy just dropped, so a surprise Cardi announcement would generate a lot hype for the festival. And while this may just be looking too deep into things, the space allocated for the surprise guest is just wide enough to fit Cardi B's name in there.
Another potential guest is Beyonce. She's come back to touring full force, and her and Jay Z will be performing in Buffalo, NY on August 18th as part their On The Run II tour. The 18th is the first day the festival, but it's not totally crazy to imagine her making her way to Long Island to headline the second day.
Other notable artists on the line up include Rich the Kid, Lil Xan, French Montana, MGK, Jacquees, and Bhad Bhabie. Check out the whole line-up below:
G.O.O.D Music Is Hosting A Mysterious Free Show In Los Angeles
Kanye West and G.O.O.D Music are some the most daring artists out right now. Whether its through their music or through any other medium art, they always find a way to push the boundaries.

Earlier today, @denimtears Instagram account shares a series posts on their story with a mysterious phone number. The three posts had captions reading "Good music x dial up & Friends" along with Los Angeles and today's date. In the next post, it showed a picture Teyana Taylor, and also tagged her.
After dialing the number 1-657-233-GOOD, a woman's voice says, "Hi there, thanks for calling. You've reached the line for Dial Up, presented by G.O.O.D Music. Expect a text message with all the details." The voice is a bit creepy but once you hang up, a text message reads, "GOOD MUsic and Dial Up Tonight Friday, February 16th Special Guest Performances all-night @21 + @11:30 till Late @Free Entry + Free Drinks @ARRIVEEARExpect a text message with the address. Tonight at 9pm. See you there!"
Who knows who will pop up but it seems like Teyana Taylor is likely a guaranteed face you'll see. In addition, they've also recruited two more emcees to their roster with Valee and Sheck Wes. Earlier today Valee released his collab with Pusha T on the "Miami (Remix)."

Well, We Now Know The Identity of EDM's Newest Mystery Producer
There’s a lot – a lot – new music out today, so it’ll probably take more than just today to get through all it you were really that dedicated. However, one piece new music perhaps deserves a bit extra attention because it might be the answer to a mystery we’ve been trying to unravel.
In October last year, we asked the question, “” The mysterious and unknown producer made his or her debut with an ficial remix Marshmello’s “Silence,” so it had to be someone with connections, or perhaps an alias an already-known producer.
The latter theory seems to be the most likely, especially when considering a tweet from Ookay this morning.
Based on the early support SUMR CAMP from the Red Light Management team (both as a release itself and in reposts on Soundcloud), and this new tweet – plus heaps fan speculation – the conclusion that Ookay is SUMR CAMP seems logical.
Listen to SUMR CAMP’s new song “Words” below.
