TOKiMONSTA at SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
THUMP is VICE's new electronic site and they're celebrating the launch of Up Next, "the destination for what's next in dance music," with a free show in NYC on Hudson River Park's Pier 84 on June 20. (That's the old River Rocks spot.) The show is being headlined by Zedd, but it'd be worth stopping by for the openers, Duke Dumont and TOKiMONSTA. The show also will have "interactive fireworks inspired by the artists' music" and a custom LED structure for the artists to perform in. Plus, there's an open bar (so the show is 21+).
Duke Dumont just had his big single, "Need U (100%)" remixed by porn star Jessie Andrews (who doubles as DJ). Check out that remix (via Noisey) below...

As you probably know by now, Disclosure's excellent debut album, Settle, came out this week (6/4) and it pretty much deservedly put them at the top of this whole house revival. But as with all of these types of trends, there are other great artists taking part in it too, and one of those is UK producer Duke Dumont, whose single, "Need U 100%" (feat A*M*E), is one of the better dance tracks this year. You can watch the song's video below.
The track was just given remix treatment by UK garage veterans Artful Dodger, whose track, "No I Turn You On," was recently remixed by Disclosure, who (to bring things full circle) just covered Duke Dumont's "Need U 100%" with collaborator Sam Smith. Got all that? Good.
You can listen to Disclosure's "Need U 100%" cover and hear them talk about it on Sara Cox's BBC Radio 1 show (it comes on around 2 hours and 11 minutes) or listen to a rip of it below. On that same radio show, they performed "You & Me," which you can watch a video of below. Artful Dodger's remix of the track and Disclosure's remix of Artful Dodger can be streamed below too.
Duke went on a North American tour earlier this month which brought him to NYC for a FIXED show at LPR, but his only upcoming dates at the moment are in Europe except for HARD Summer 2013 in LA (which Disclosure also plays).
!!! at Sasquatch 2011 (more by Josh Darr)
As previously discussed, !!! will be in town for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (12/13) with Sinkane (who will open for Solange next week) and Yellow Dogs. Tickets for the show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
Meanwhile, !!! frontman Nic Offer recently spoke to us about his favorite albums and songs of the year. Like Nic's own music, the list skews mainly electronic and electronic-tinged pop, and he makes room for a few other interesting inclusions too. Nic is also now the second artist we've spoke to to include the various artists compilation, Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984. You can check out the whole list below.
