The Weeknd & Daft Punk Are Working on Music Together

Yes folks, this is big. As YourEDM points out, The Weeknd has reportedly been working on new music with Daft Punk. The news was first revealed during a “hitmakers roundtable” hosted by Billboard last month. An executive from the Weeknd’s label Republic Records confirmed the clash of creative forces. When asked what artist she’d like to work with, Executive VP and head of urban A&R Wendy Goldstein said, "Well actually, we have a session coming up in two days with the Weeknd and Daft Punk, and I’ve always been a massive Daft Punk fan. “This is the first time I’ve been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them.”

Watch A Recap of DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Star-Studded Playlist Retreat 2016

DJ Jazzy Jeff

As he always does about this time of year, DJ Jazzy Jeff recently held the 2016 edition of his Playlist Retreat. The Playlist Retreat is an intimate gathering of progressive artists for the purpose of inspiration, motivation and collaboration. It is an organic exchange between people who believe in the greater purpose of expression through music.

We get this well put together re-cap of the latest edition featuring Jazzy Jeff, DJ Day, Rhymefest, Daniel Crawford, SiR, DJ Excel, Aloe Blacc, James Poyser, Young Guru, Glenn Lewis, Natasha Diggs, 14KT, Lord Finesse, DJ Babu, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Gwen Bunn, Masego, J.Period and many more. That’s a whole lot of talent bunched up together right there. The clip shows the highlights of the experience with the artists speaking on how impactful the retreat was for them, and how it’s a rare opportunity to have real life interaction with some of your highly respected peers, as well as a chance to talk about more than music. Can’t even imagine the leg work that would go into putting something like this together, but it’s truly an inspiring and amazing collection of talent.

US Men’s Basketball Team Wins Gold at Olympics, Defeating Serbia

With a final score of 96-66, the United States men’s basketball team has emerged as winners of the gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio, defeating Serbia. Team USA defeated Spain 82-76 on Friday in order to advance to the finals. During the last eight minutes of the game, the US had a 40-point lead which caused early celebrations among the players. Kevin Durant took over the second quarter, scoring big for the team, as did Carmelo Anthony — who had an emotional exit for what will most likely be his last Olympic game. This is the third straight win for Team USA as they haven’t lost the Olympics in men’s basketball since Argentina beat them back in 2004. The team now also has six of seven wins since NBA players were allowed into the Olympics in 1992.
