Dirty South and Alesso have cut a brand new video for ”City of Dreams”, their latest single. The track features Ruben Haze on guest vocals and a remix from Showtek – with the Dutch brothers lending a rougher edge to the production as the sublime melodies melt away into a full throttle electro drop.
The video was put together by Eyewax TV and racked up 50 thousand views in its first 24 hours on Vevo! You can check it out here:

It’s OFFICIAL – Fuse ODG’s massive summer smash “Antenna” is in the UK Top Ten!! The track was a new entry at number 7 on the Official Chart, the second highest new entry just behind Union J who charted at number 6 with their new single “Carry You”.
This really IS New Africa – “Antenna” is the highest chart position for any Afrobeats track to date, D’Banj’s “Oliver Twist” debuted at Number 9 back in May 2012.
Fuse joined Jameela Jamil in the BBC Radio 1 studio to yesterday to talk about the single. He also had a lot of FUN teaching Jameela how to dance to Antenna.
If you want to see how it’s really done check out the winners of the Antenna dance competition.
OR take a look at the official video which features the legendary Wyclef Jean throwing some pretty slick moves in a backpack!
Stars of the urban scene took to Twitter to congratulate Fuse on his success – among them label-mate (and fellow Ghanaian) Sway, Lethal Bizzle and Toddla T.

It’s in the papers AND it’s true!! Duck Sauce are back with a brand new and brilliant single – “It’s You”.
It’s been a while since we heard from Duck Sauce – the Armand Van Helden/A-Trak collaborative project which brought you the phenomena that was “Barbara Streisand” and followed it up with “Big Bad Wolf” (with that unforgettable crotchface video) – and “It’s You” is well worth the wait.
The first hint of a return came with a full page ad in New York’s top listings mag Village Voice announcing “Quack is Back”.
You can get your first taste of the track right here.
The single will drop on June 25th…
Until then, get back into the Duck Sauce groove with “Barbara Streisand”…
AND “Big Bad Wolf”
