Calvin Harris Collaborating With Everyone, Teams With Haim For “Pray To God”

Calvin Harris grows more inescapable by the day. The hit-maker is releasing his new album, Motion, next week, and its tracklist is a star-studded one. Last week brought the Ellie Goulding track, “Outside;” this week, we get the Haim collaboration. Yet to come: songs with Gwen Stefani, Big Sean, Tinashe, and more.

Though odd to hear the Haim sisters in a Calvin Harris world, “Pray To God” does bring telltale elements of both parties. It lacks some of the Haim sisters’ sleek rock, focusing on the Haims’ voices. It then places them in that unmistakable Calvin Harris …

With massive, pulsating chords and a powerful vocal performance courtesy of Adrian Delgado to match, “Darkness I Needed” is everything one could ask for in a singular uplifting soundtrack.

Thus, we decided there was no better time …

UTG PHOTOS: Bassnectar At Madison Square Garden (10/4/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer Derek Scancarelli to Madison Square Garden in New York City to photograph Bassnectar on October 4, 2014.

Ahhhh, The Garden. The internationally renowned arena over New York’s Pennsylvania Station. It’s home to the New York Rangers, New York Knicks, and is the only venue to ever have a residency by Billy Joel. You can see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Circus or a New York Liberty Game. As of last weekend, Bassnectar will be added to the list of iconic performances to grace the stage at MSG, making for one hell of a check-off …

LISTEN: Zedd Remixes MAGIC!’s Radio Hit, “Rude”

It’s safe to say that anything EDM Producer/DJ Zedd puts his hands has the potential to make you love his version a little more than the original.

This most recent remix sure makes it seem like it, at least. Millions of people across the globe have been listening to Canadian reggae fusion outfit MAGIC!’s radio hit, “Rude,” and it’s pretty catchy. As every song being aired a hundred times a day, however, it eventually gets old and the desire to listen to the same track once more declines to a zero. This is where Zedd swoops in and gives the …

Turns out, the album is very real. In fact, it’s complete and ready to be added to your music collection, for free, today.

Yesterday (August 21), Puff Daddy turned …
