Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon and Big Boi @ Fader on 8/7/2012
Little Dragon played East Austin's Millenium Center last night (8/7) as part of the Vitamin Water Uncapped series of parties being thrown by Fader. For their last song, Big Boi came out for a performance of "Mama Told Me," a single off of his upcoming album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors (due out 11/13), which Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano sings on. According to Big Boi, the track is one of two on his new album to feature a collaboration with Little Dragon. A-Trak performed after that, with Little Dragon and Big Boi returning to the stage for "Shutterbug." As you might imagine, the party (which was also MC'd by onetime BET host Miss Info) was mobbed. Pictures from the event are in this post.

Diplo released the "Express Yourself" 7" this month, the single for that track from his EP of the same name. You've already seen the video for that song, which features bounce artist Nicky Da B, and below we're offering a stream of the single's b-side, "Move Around" (featuring Elephant Man and GTA). That's the cover art for the 7" above. Pick up a copy on green vinyl.
Diplo, Grimes, Skrillex (one of the greatest guitarists of all time), Tokimonsta, Pretty Lights, and others are set to head out on the Full Flex Express Tour, a tour of Canada on a train modeled after The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and The Band's 1970 Festival Express tour.
Although the Full Flex Express tour doesn't come to the US, Diplo, Skrillex, and Pretty Lights will all be in NYC later this summer for Electric Zoo, which returns to Randall's Island from August 31-September 1. Tickets are on sale now. The full lineup is listed below. Skrillex will also be in the NYC area for Bamboozle this weekend.

In more related news, the touring Identity Festival, whose lineup was a bit better last year but certainly bigger this year since it sold out in less than 24 hours, returns to NY on July 28 at Jones Beach. Artists playing include Datsik, Eric Prydz, Nero, and more. Full lineup below.
