Head over to the Federation Sound blog to download the new Lexx-I-Con mixtape, a dope (and very thorough!) primer on the tunes of Mr Lexx, courtesy of Max Glazer and Kenny Meez of Federation. Appropriately enough, this collection of dancehall detonators closes out with Lexx’s Congorock collab “Babylon,” perhaps THE definition of BIG TUNE!

Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.

Check out Congorock’s “Babylon” on the new BBC Essential Mix by Buraka Som Sistema.
“Babylon” has been getting props by many DJ big dogs: Steve Angello, Brodinski, JFK, Chuckie, Riton, Afrojack (and David Guetta?), Crookers, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, etc. And for good reason! It is an undeniable banger!!! Cop “Babylon” on Beatport ASAP.

About time! Like we do every spring, the whole fam went down to Austin a few weeks back for SXSW. Our artists had tons of shows and guest sets to hit, but the pieces de resistance were the two FG events: the Texas Takeover at Republic Live, and the official FG SXSW Showcase at Malverde. Strictly best-of-the-best DJs, MCs, and even some new rock-n-rollers. Party! Whistles!

After getting people hyped with the music video, and a packed month of “More Fire” tour dates, it’s only right that Congorock’s “Babylon” finally sees official release. The single features a massive vocal version with dancehall don Mr Lexx (the voice behind Major Lazer’s “Hold The Line” and many more lighter-flickers), the instrumental dub you already know and love from the video, and a “Lexxapella” for the DJs to play with. Big!
Grab it next week on Beatport, and all other services shortly there after. Vinyl on its way too, with some huge remixes… oh you thought we forgot about those? Hell naw! If that’s not enough, you can grab these none-more-black Congorock logo tees at our webstore, featuring the new metal logo from the “Babylon” sleeve above, designed by Dust La Rock ov cvrse!

Boston’s new electronic music week Together is one of the best festival ideas we’ve seen in a while, a community-based series of events that’s as much about throwing great parties as building a strong local scene for all the months there isn’t a fest in town. We’re proud to have some of our own taking part – tonight you can catch Kingdom at the Nu Life party at Zuzu, and tomorrow Congorock will be putting it down alongside Klever for We The People at Estate. Plus there’s all sorts of other events going on with the likes of Untold, Justin Martin, AC Slater & Udachi, Sinden, Neon Indian, DJ Funk and many more. Check it out!
