We hope you are enjoying the holidays with your family and your friends. If you think you don't receive gifts enoughs, some new music (and video) could end your 2015 in a good way. And yes, we are back after some weeks of silence, and 2016 will be for us a great year.
1. Diplo: Diplo and Friends Best Of 2015 Mix
We finally saw him everywhere. First, the duo with Skrillex named Jack Ü made a good album with definitively a new breathe for J. Bieber with "Where Are Ü Now". Second, his great band Major Lazer made records with the single "Lean On" (almost 1 billion views on YouTube), a great part of an album very probably dedicated to France, Peace Is The Mission.
In clear, Thomas Wesley Pentz didn't stop touring with his friends. Previously he revealed with Sleepy Tom the single "Be Right There", and for his Diplo and Friends Show, he gave us his favorite tracks of 2015. Diplo is not ready to stop producing, we're sure.
2. Skrillex: Stranger
If the definition of Skrillex's concerts is strong and fire performances, he also can do calm songs or even an ode to the world. A goal succeed with The Creators Project - who made in 2012 a beautiful end for M83's trilogy with "Wait" - who both present a emotional and a lightful video for "Stranger" in piano-voice version with Sam Dew, KillaGraham, Tennyson and White Sea.
The message Sonny Moore shows us is strong and clear: little, big, old, young, from every place or from every belief, we're "strangers" but we're all the same, and nothing should prevent the fact of being all together.
3. Bring Me The Horizon: Drown (live from Maida Vale)
The power of That's The Spirit confirmed the new Bring Me The Horizon after Sempiternal. More vocals and more music ways have been explored by Oliver Sykes' band, and we can only love, as the full fifth album. We keep in mind their performance at Reading and Leeds in August, where everyone noticed Oli's love for Japanese kawaii metal band BABYMETAL with a special T-Shirt.
For the song "Drown", already revealed in 2014 before album's release, the band offered for Christmas an orchestral version made with the BBC. Beautiful.
4. Muse - Agitated (live at Glasgow Barrowlands)
21 years and still young, Bellamy, Wolstenholme and Howard came back on the rock lines with their 7th album Drones, full of guitar riffs and powerful songs as "Pyscho", "Reapers" or "Revolt". We had right to the beautiful following of Origin Of Symmetry's "Citizen Erazed" with "The Globalist" during 10 minutes.
The band wish us "Musey" Christmas with their song "Agitated" at Glasgow Barrowlands, first recorded before te release of Showbiz in 1999.
5. Radiohead - Spectre
You are not dreaming, the guys of Oxford are back on the studios since a few times. And if we all are waiting to hear their upcoming 9th album - following The King Of Limbs (2011), Thom Yorke's Radiohead revealed a special song for 007 Spectre movie.
"Last year we were asked to write a tune for Bond movie Spectre. Yes we were ... It didn't work out", Yorke said, "but became something of our own which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you", he ended to refer to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
So, it haven't been used for official soundtrack, Sam Smith did. However, maybe it was too much good to put on movie's opening. So good that a fan combined the song to the opening deleting Smith's "Writing's On The Wall". So good the original song on SoundCloud has been played more than 3 million times in a few days.
What do you think of all these songs/sets? Have you got some other Christmas gifts like this? Anyway, we wish you Happy New Year 2016 in advance for France. Keep
