HARD Haunted Mansion returns to the Shrine Expo Hall in LA October 28-29 with Fatboy Slim, Skream & Benga, SBTRKT, Kingdom and others. Tickets for the LA festival are on sale now. A flier for the fest is below.

If you can't make it out to LA for the festival, HARD Haunted Mansion will be putting on a smaller but similar show on October 22 at Terminal 5 billed as 'HARD Haunted Mansion NYC.' The show will be headlined by Skream & Benga and includes support from Joker, Dillon Francis, Destructo, and more TBA. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/26) at noon.

Joker is set to release his first official full length album, The Vision on November 8 via 4AD. We've already heard his single of the same name with Jessie Ware on lead vocals (who also sang on the SBTRKT album). He's since revealed the single "Here Come the Lights" (ft. SIlas of Turboweekend) which comes out as a 12" on September 27 in the US b/w "Trance Girl." Check out a radio rip of the new track from BBC Radio 1 Zane Lowe's Hottest Record of the World show below.

In related news, HARD Summer Tour is underway with Digitalism (live), Switch, Designer Drugs, and of course HARD founder and DJ Destructo. Caspa, was originally scheduled to be on the tour, but recently cancelled. As mentioned, the tour ends on Saturday (8/20) at Terminal 5. Tickets for the show are still on sale and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to win below.

i know i'm all about stoppin the hate on artists and shows and whatnot up on these comment sections but #onsomerealshit i am so fucking sick of destructo and his bs shows that he keeps calling "hard". first of all i don't care about his past, who cares about how he used to put on all of these great underground dj shows out on the worst coast. what i care about is sweet electronic music and not being surrounded by freakin underage rats who just came so they can grind up on someone in peace. he picks artists that although may be relevant do not translate to a "killer lineup" in terms of electronic music. the most obvious evidence of this is HIM BEING ON EVERY FUCKING BILL. which brings me to my next point, which is as a dj he is "fucking terrible". he acts so hard and like he's the fucking man but really he is just playing the same shit that's been plaaayed and plaaaayed. destructo, if you are reading this, you need to step it up. stop throwing teen parties and show the real NYC electro fans that you are made of something incredible, and are able to "destruct" a name brand venue such as terminal 5. otherwise, stop masking garbage underage shows as relevant electronic events. if you think i'm gonna pay up to 46.50 to see benga and switch, you have got to be kidding me.
