Yesterday, Machinedrum released the first single off of his upcoming album Human Energy, “Do It 4 U” (Feat. D∆WN). The song is an upbeat masterpiece, and D∆WN compliments it wonderfully with vocals.

Machinedrum’s upcoming album, Human Energy, is set to drop Sept. 30. Billboard describes the album as “hyperactive and busy with noise, but not overwhelming. It’s quick-paced but soothing, like a hectic splatter painting made with soft pastels.”

Machinedrum recently announced his Human Energy tour and will be making two Texas stops. You can snag tickets below:

11/04 – Austin – Grizzly Hall
11/05 – Dallas – RBC

Future Previews New Music on Snapchat

Future

In this day and age, it’s not at all uncommon for artists to use social media to instantly share anything from their concerts to their pets to their deep late night thoughts with their fans. Snapchat is becoming a more popular medium because of its what’s-happening-now vibe and the fact that stories disappear after 24 hours so fans really have to be on their game if they want to catch their favorite artists’ every moment. Future took this idea and ran with it by sharing new music today via the popular app. Could this mean a new album soon? The great thing about the Internet is even though these snaps technically disappear within 24 hours, the real MVPs always find a way to save them. Listen to Future’s new snippets in the clips below.

Future *might* just play this new music when he headlines this year’s JMBLYA alongside a killer lineup: Kehlani, Rae Sremmurd, Kevin Gates, Jazz Cartier, Post Malone and more. This may just be the best JMBLYA yet, so don’t miss out. Get tickets while you still can at the links below.

Dallas – 5/13
Austin – 5/14

Doeman – Austin, TX @ Scoot Inn Indoors – February 24, 2016

<
>

Awhile back, we began the process of putting together a Texas tour with an emerging artist out of Houston by the name of Doeman. Various ScoreMore employees were passionate about his music and wanted to start building out more local artist-centered tours in smaller venues across the state. With the release of Doeman’s most recent project, O.B.E., we were able to link up with the DYNA Music Group crew and put together the O.B.E. Tour, which stopped through Austin at Scoot Inn Indoors last night — photos above — and will be hitting San Antonio this Saturday, Dallas Sunday and Houston Thursday, March 3.

Doeman’s live shows are a perfect mix of raw realness, with the Houston rapper often stopping mid-track to spit acapella, and accessibility so even the uninitiated can have a ball turning up with their friends. If you support Texas music or real music in general, catching the O.B.E. Tour is a must. Come through. Tickets and info on the shows below:

2.27 – San Antonio @ Alamo City Music Club
2.28 – Dallas @ Three Links
3.03 – Houston @ Warehouse Live
