    Migos
    Are MIGOS really bigger than the Beatles? No. But Offset, Quavo and Takeoff are the de facto leaders of the new school. The album Culture received a massive boost by the success of "Bad and Boujee," and has since seen "T-Shirt" and the Gucci Mane-aided "Slippery" gain steam as legitimate mainstream hits.more...
    Are MIGOS really bigger than the Beatles? No. But Offset, Quavo and Takeoff are the de facto leaders of the new school. The album Culture received a massive boost by the success of "Bad and Boujee," and has since seen "T-Shirt" and the Gucci Mane-aided "Slippery" gain steam as legitimate mainstream hits.

    With a bio that boasts, "We're only interested in making music you can fight or strip to," Daniel Disaster, the DJ, producer, and driving force behind Heroes x Villains, has made huge strides in an era when the roles of the DJ and the artist are becoming one in the same. As the man who coined the term luxury trap, giving credence to the 70-140 BPM hybrid of post-dubstep and trap music, no one is pushing the boundaries of electronic dance music with more flare. And with this year's arrival of his first official song, "Original Choppaz," he makes good on his promise to deliver the soundtrack to sex and violence with a dark, pervasive flare. www.heroesxvillains.tumblr.com. less...
