LA-based artist Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis, Jr., has debuted a new video for the track 'Turn Me Up' which was directed by Alex Turvey.
The striking black and white video was styled by creative director Milan Zrnic, and features clothing from Diesel and KTZ. 'Turn Me Up' is taken from Lewis's upcoming album 'Eclipse' which will be released on March 17th. He will tour North America in support of the album throughout March and April.
"I think it's important to let people take what they need from songs instead of explaining too much about what they mean for me personally," says Lewis. "But my friends keep asking, 'Turn me up' - what's that mean? I keep saying, 'Take more from me. Ask more of me. Give me more back. Stop fighting against the things you want the most.'"
Lewis adds adds: "I'm surrounded by great people right now, people who are pushing me, like my twin sister Ligia Lewis, my creative director Milan Zrnic, and Alex Turvey, who all worked with me to create the visuals for 'Turn Me Up'."-DocFB
Diagnosis: The Dominican Republic-born, Florida-bred Lewis adopted the Twin Shadow moniker in 2006. He has released two previous albums on indie labels Terrible and 4AD, 2010's 'Forget' and 2012's 'Confess'.

23-year old DJ/producer 3LAU has released his new single "We Came to Bang" featuring the seductive vocals of Luciana, accompanied by its violently comical new official video where "furry" mascots fight to the death surrounded by cheerleaders. "We Came to Bang" is 3LAU's follow-up club release to "Vikings," which came out earlier in 2014.
The young but experienced electronic artist first took the scene by storm two years ago, igniting dance parties and crafting beats to the delight of fans worldwide. 3LAU amassed widespread acclaim with two eclectic collections of bootlegs titled "Dance Floor Fifth," and the term continues to describe his unique sound. His second radio single "How You Love Me" has seen over 10 million streams across YouTube, Spotify, and Soundcloud, and is on track to be the most played record of 2014 on SiriusXM's BPM channel.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Fans can expect a busy 2015 from 3LAU, with a slew of announcements on the horizon for the new year.

Rixton will hit the road with Ariana Grande for her upcoming North American tour, which kicks off February 25th in Independence, MO, and continues through mid-April. The band will also support Ariana on the newly announced European dates commencing on May 15th in Paris, France.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Band on the rise....one to watch in 2015.
Legendary guitarist Johnny Marr (formerly of The Smiths) released his new music video for "Dynamo."
The track is off Marr's acclaimed sophomore solo album Playland, which Rolling Stone boasts is "filled with wicked guitar salvos and shiny, barbed hooks..." and Q Magazine adds, "'Playland' is better than its predecessor in pretty much every respect. The songs are better, the palette broader and there's a genuine sense of Marr hitting his stride as a solo artist."
'Playland' is Marr's second solo effort and the follow up to last year's critically acclaimed (included the honor of being named as NME's Godlike Genius) Top 10 debut album 'The Messenger.' Work on the album commenced in London in spring 2014 as soon as the year of touring in support of 'The Messenger' came to a close. It finds Marr continuing the creative connection that was forged on 'The Messenger' with collaborator and co-producer Doviak.-DocFB
