Facebook might be making significant investments in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies but there are times when specialist companies have done some of the vital work. Normally, giants like Facebook would simply purchase these smaller firms – like the recent acquisition of CTRL-Labs – but this can be a lengthy process. Today it has been revealed that Facebook and British microLED manufacturer Plessey have entered into an exclusive arrangement to help further Facebook’s AR plans.

Most of us in the West Coast bass music scene know Soothslayer for her teeth-kicking sets at Insomniac events, Respect or other D&B events around SoCal, either solo or with mixing partner Nightstalker. She’s also quietly released a number of tracks with Insomniac and Bassrush to coordinate with said teeth-kicker sets, including a track with Follow the Sun called “Nova” that made it onto the Bassrush/Viper 3.0 compilation album last year.
Her new debut solo EP Witchcraft sees Soothslayer lacing up her combat boots once again but this time she’s really serious. With this incredibly heavy and polished gut-check of an EP, Soothslayer is now a major player in drum and bass and Witchcraft demands we all stand up and salute (after we recover from the gut-check).
the structure has been designed as a ‘sculptural and experiential counterpoint’ to the adjacent shopping mall.

It looks like Earl Sweatshirt is even blessing us with a new verse when we need it the most. Earlier today, Drakeo The Ruler’s camp released the official remix to his collaboration with 03 Greedo, “Ion Rap Beef” with a brand new verse from Earl. Slick tongued with a laid-back bravado, Earl kicks off his verse by calling out the D.A and calling for Drakeo’s freedom before dropping braggadocious bars. The song was initially teased on Drakeo’s Instagram page in early March but it has since been deleted. Earl’s also expressed his support for Drakeo on Twitter in the past.
