Electric Zoo's Youngbloods Part 1

Electric Zoo is considered to be one of the most awesome gatherings in which the world’s best EDM DJ/producers are showcased. From clubheads to newbies, this event is universally seen as one of the most highly anticipated bashes each summer season. Returning to Randalls Island for it’s 4th year, E-Zoo promises an experience impossible to match. This year’s lineup features somewhat of a youthful talent group as some of the world’s top DJs are under 25.

Enter Electric Zoo’s Youngbloods Part 1. VIBE has put together a list of 10 ‘youngbloods’ that you need to know about. For our first portion we present you soon to be Zoo attendees with 5 talented youngsters that will make your jaw drop.

Pierce Fulton

Breaking onto the EDM circuit at the young age of 17, Fulton has been on an endless tear since 09’. Now 19, the phenom producer’s career has developed into a life of international touring and chart topping releases. Renowned for his upbeat bass filled sound, Fulton has become clear favorite of the masses as his sets rarely disappoint. Don’t let his age fool you, this youngblood’s production skills are more on point than some EDM dinosaurs.

Porter Robinson

Seen in a similar light to that of Lebron James when he was coming out of highschool, Porter Robinson had a #1 Beatport track before his graduation. In a timeframe that most would consider absurdly quick, Robinson has already shared stage with a number of the industry’s titans such as DeadMau5, Tiesto and Skrillex to name a few. If I had to use one word to describe his sound and appearances, it would be SAVAGE. This youngblood has already climbed the ladder of success even though legally he isn’t permitted into clubs...Go figure.


If you claim to be a dubstep fan and don’t know who Datsik is, you live under a rock. The 24 year old Canadian producer has had over 10 #1’s on Beatport which has helped him successfully intoxicate the masses with his bass filled swagger sets. Alongside fellow dubstep monster producers, Excision and Downlink, Datsik continuously impresses all of those who witness him throw down.

Maya Jane Coles

As the ongoing argument over the world’s best girl DJ/producer carries on, the name Maya Jane Coles is always in the mix. The UK based producer has made an unprecedented rise to the top in an unbelievable amount of time. After her breakthrough release in 2010, she was quickly recognized by DJ Mag as ‘Newcomer of the Year (2010)’. The following year Coles was awarded the cover of Mix Mag and a laundry list of other accolades. Her sound is original, groovy and truly one of the best out there right now. Making her first appearance at E-Zoo this year, she will not disappoint.


The 22 year old German producer has been turning heads for a considerable amount of time. Recently basking in glory as his latest original ‘Spectrum sat atop the Beatport charts, Zedd boasts a sound consisting of multiple genres. His music background dates back his youth as he was raised by two musicians. Regardless of that, this kid is so talented as a DJ and producer that there is nothing but excitement for what he has in store for the future.

Check back soon for Part 2 of E-Zoo's Youngbloods!

H.E.R. Brings All-Star Medley To Tiny Desk Set

Grammy-nominated singer H.E.R. appeared on NPR's "Tiny Desk" set on Dec. 12, to deliver a 4-piece-medley from her last four projects.

Tucked neatly behind her dark sunglasses, the songstress began her set strapped to a mustard yellow guitar with a host of back-up musicians accompanying the 21-year-old on her first solo journey with "Tiny Desk." She previously appeared on the performance series in June 2018 alongside collaborator Daniel Caesar to bring their single "Best Part" to life.

The singer began with "Going (Interlude)," a low-tempo song ushering a heavy-hearted feel into the 18-minute-performance. Keeping with the melancholy vibes planted by the first single, Gabriella Wilson – best known by her three-letter-moniker –  delivered a stunning rendition of "Feel A Way." With two-final transitions, the singer-songwriter concluded her act with "Focus," a throw back from the 2017 EP that gained her worldwide recognition, H.E.R. Volume 1.

Switching from strings to keys, Wilson sat peacefully before a keyboard playing the melody she crafted for the crowd favorite. Chaperoning the performance to a close, Wilson and her background singers played a vocal game of tag as the band jazzed up the slow beats until the set officially wrapped.

Watch as H.E.R. rocks the "Tiny Desk" set in the video above.

Here’s what the next two weeks look like on the @latelateshow! Seeing the year out with a bang x x x

A post shared by James Corden (@j_corden) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:17pm PST

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Usher Releases "Peace Sign" Video Off Of 'A' Project

Given Monday's (Dec. 10) debate about who's the king of R&B, one of the names that steadily popped up in the conversation has stepped onto the scene. In a visual promotion for his A soundscape, Usher released the video for "Peace Sign" alongside producer Zaytoven.

Previously, the pair hit the studio for an eight-track project that pays respect to their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was surprise-released in October and effortlessly fuses ATL's aura on the soundscape. Now, the "Peace Sign" video puts that decision into cinematic motion.

"Atlanta offers a certain attitude and a sauce that I can't explain, and it is a little bit in 'No Limit,' it is a little bit in 'TNT.' I'm literally talking sh*t, man," he said in an interview with The Fader. "I'm popping sh*t that I haven't popped, like really ever. And that's what being in the moment creates. When you have months and months to think about it and you begin to analyze all the people who you need to think of and what you want this entire project to work out, you'll lose certain elements of your spontaneity an incredible culture that just happens in the moment. I didn't give that space. I really was honest with the feelings, I was honest with the conversation and I was really in the moment. And I thank Zay for that."
