If you’re in or around the Philly, Baltimore, NY or NJ areas this weekend, the Borgata is the place to be. Producers and DJ trio Cash Cash will (once again) be bringing the party to Club Mixx in Atlantic City tonight (Saturday) at 10 p.m. If it’s true that history repeats itself, this is definitely not a show you want to miss.
The Roseland, New Jersey-native EDM group – comprised of JP Makhlouf, Alex Makhlouf and Sam Frisch – is best known for their hit song, “Take Me Home” featuring Bebe Rexha on vocals. The song ended up at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, and No. 57 overall on the Hot 100 chart. Other past songs of notice have featured everyone from Christina Perri to Capital Cities to John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls. But that’s not all they have to offer – their latest single, “Surrender” is incessantly catchy and has been making waves in the EDM community.
The wait appears to be finally be over for the Jack Ü album.
Ever since the duo’s original announcement of a collaborative album, fans of the two DJs have been buzzing with excitement for the release. They recently teased their followers with a one-word Facebook post: “Soon.”
Thankfully, “soon” is finally now. Skrillex and Diplo announced earlier this week that they would be streaming a special 24-hour DJ set starting at Noon PST, 3 p.m. EST on Thursday February 26. You can see Skrillex’s YouTube video announcement HERE!
Both artists forewent their regular sleep cycles, joining #TeamNoSleep and marathoned all the way through the night for this once-in-a-lifetime event (…until the police showed up 17 hours in and shut down the party!). But shut down or not, the duo set a personal live streaming record.
The party was amazing while it lasted – both in person and online, at one point having over 25,000 viewers tuned in – and featured surprise appearances from artists like Dillon Francis, Ape Drums and more. Not only that, but the #24HOURSOFJACKU turned out to be a countdown to the surprise release of the Jack Ü album itself. See the tracklist below:
01 “Don’t Do Drugs Just Take Some…”

Greatness can be achieved in many ways in the music world. You can find that catchy beat and great vocals and have your song played throughout the year. Or perhaps you can headline your own tour and have it sold out everywhere. Or better yet you can have such an successful EP that you have to release a remix album full of very talented artists remixing your album. Seems like The Glitch Mob is off to a great 2015 with the release of ‘Love Death Immortality Remixes’ that’s filled with musical genius. (more…)

“When I was in high school, one of my old friends started dragging me out to raves. I met a million new people, and started going out dancing every weekend with so many new friends. My friends and the music brought me back to life. They showed me meaning and purpose, and I knew music was the only thing I was going to pursue.” -Elephunk
