[Watch] Kaskade x Skrillex - "Lick It"

We have some visuals for a track that's more than fitting for a Friday afternoon sat in the office. It's for a track that hit the net last year from Kaskade and Skrillex, their collaboration, "Lick It". A track that will make you want to clock watch more than you already are. The weekend's here and you just want to go party! The video is pretty neat too, featuring some nice reversed footage making it more than a little intriguing and a great way to spend 4 minutes of your day. Snow, pain and blood. See what you make of it above.

[Recap] The 54th Annual Grammy Awards: Pleasantly Boring

Credit: Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles TimesLast night we witnessed a very safe ceremony for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. The fact that I'm not as outraged about the performances and the results as I normally am has had me stewing on this all night and all morning. I'm always the one in my circle that cheers on The Recording Academy to make better decisions so they can be both relevant while not getting too caught up in The Long Tail looking for the year's very best, so why can't I feel better about last night's ceremony?  I want to say they're finally coming around, but why did the whole ordeal make me feel so "meh" afterwards?

[Watch] Skrillex x The Doors - "Breakn' A Sweat"

Remember last year when everyone was a bit taken a back by the announcement and then release of a track with the surviving member of The Doors and Skrillex? Well, that track titled "Breakn' A Sweat", which was part of the RE:GENERATION project, has now been given the official video treatment. The video shows the odd pairing busy creating the track in the Studio and can be watched at the top. What do you guys make of this pairing and the whole mainstream growth of dubstep within the past year? Love it...hate it... let us know.

[Listen] Skrillex - "Breathe"

The amount of wub-wub Skrillex has made this year is ridiculous and he's taken his own brand of Dubstep to a whole different level. Love him or hate him, wake yourself up with a new cut that's floating around the internet by the name of "Breathe". Skrillex is currently working on his latest EP called Bangarang but before that we better give this more relaxed feeling track a listen.

[News] 54th Annual Grammy Nomminations Announced

It's that time of year again where we all bicker and complain about how the Grammys are no longer relevant and that the music industry continues to be nothing but a big fat failure. That's right, kiddies: the 54th Annual Grammy nominations are in and the band bashing is already in full swing.

Leading the nominations this time around are Adele (shocker), Kanye West, Bruno Mars, Foo Fighters, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. The Electronica and Dance categories were relatively well represented with nods for Cut/Copy, David Guetta, Robyn, Duck Sauce, Deadmau5, Skrillex, and Swedish House Mafia.

Skrillex and Bon Iver were included in the noms for Best New Artist along with The Band Perry, J. Cole and Nicki Minaj, which seemed to rattle the internet quite a bit. It's a little random that Bon Iver is in this category considering they released their first album in 2008, but we will be happy for them all the same. Skrillex seems to come out of left field in this category, but I guess if Ryan Seacrest is excited for Skrillex then we really shouldn't be all that shocked. Kudos to him for getting electronica/dance music into more categories other than their own, though. Bon Iver also received a nomination for Record of the Year with "Helocene" alongside Mumford & Sons, Katy Perry, Adele, and Bruno Mars.

Butch Vig, Danger Mouse, The Lonely Island, The Black Keys, Foster The People, Radiohead, The Decemberists, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kings of Leon, Wilco and many more were among the nominees tonight. Make sure you have a onceover on this years list of nominees and get ready to fire your tweets off with us on February 12, 2012 during the awards ceremony.
