Mark Zuckerberg is so rich, he could carpet his house with $100 bills and still have more money than all the readers of this post combined.

His net worth is now estimated at $18 billion, a figure that makes him the third richest tech leader in the world. On the rich guy scale, the Facebook head has quietly surpassed Steve Ballmer, Steve Jobs, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Only Microsoft's Bill Gates and Oracle's Larry Ellison have more of the green stuff than Zuck. Not too shabby for someone who hasnt even hit thirty. [Forbes; Shutterstock/photolinc]

LES TWINS are just Siiiiiick!!

Katy Perry is about to do something that no other female singer has done before.

Michael Jackson is the only artist who has ever had five No.1 Billboard Hot 100 hits from one single album.

That could all change soon if Katy Perry's latest single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) hits the number one spot (and, come on, you know it will). She will then have five number one hits from her Teenage Dream album - a first for any female in the chart's 52-year history

A couple of weeks ago, we strapped on our helmets and took Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. to the races—go-kart races, that is. There was no setting more appropriate to discover the men behind the moniker, a couple of fast-paced humorists with their fingers on the pulse of electro-indie pop. Although the boys were outrun by a couple of kids, as they so aptly observed about racing (and life), "it's not who finishes first, it's who finishes best". They were certainly dressed their racing best (somewhat ironically), sporting tweed suits and ties in lieu of their usual NASCAR attire in celebration of the release of their debut It's A Corporate World. That sealed the deal for us. Gain a little insight into their history (and their racing chops)in this exclusive interview.

SoulMotor bassist Brian Wheat, along with lead vocalist, songwriter and video director Darin Wood have documented a drug deal gone bad “Down in Mexico,” by being in the Wrong Place …at the Right Time.

Available on iTunes this coming Monday, June 28, the digital CD release can be pre-ordered here and now at: http://bit.ly/mbdvZv

The fictitious drug deal and more are stories set to song are all part of SoulMotor’s upcoming CD, Wrong Place at the Right Time.

Wheat and Wood have created a cast of characters including the more-than-shady Reefer-Man Sam who appears on both “Down in Mexico” and the title track. This low-life has double-crossed the FBI, double-crossed the Mob and has even double-crossed his mom. A knife fight results in murder and Sam heads south of the border with a suitcase full of cash, a .45 in the glove box and a few tabs of mescaline playing pinball in his brain.

Along the way, Sam picks up more bad news in a tight dress by the name of Lola De La Mota and by the time he reaches Mexico, he’s seduced by The Chick With No Name, ambushed by the cops and gets his own music video directed by none other than SoulMotor lead singer Darin Wood.

In addition to the aforementioned tracks “Down in Mexico” and the title song, “Wrong Place At The Right Time”, the other nine remaining tunes and characters on Wrong Place at the Right Time include the following.

Jeremy Glenn works on 2 levels.

As with many Future Classic releases, Jeremy Glenn's sun-drenched euphoria on "New Life" is perfect for driving home from the beach or partying seaside through the evening.

But when you look deeper, you see Jeremy is unafraid to come bearing soul, daring to embrace his natural pop sensibilities, while celebrating the underground scene that’s shaped him as a DJ (he sings and produces everything himself).

Already he has shared the decks with James Murphy, Tensnake and Andy Butler as well as performing live alongside Dam-Funk, Aeroplane, and Alexander Robotnick.

No doubt more collaborations and mutations are to come.

Video crafted by DaKOTA.

Digital release June 20, available earlier on 12" vinyl.

Sundress - Derelict by Low Life Inc
Sundress is an American Psychedelic-Pop band, formed in Denton, Texas in 2010 by principle members Ryan McAdams, bassist Drew McCary, guitarist Kennon Talley, keyboardist Jim Harrington and drummer Brack Cantrell. Sundress is described as having an ethereal or “Dream Pop” sound bringing in influences all across the board. The five young men harvest a brand new, much modern sound in the veins of Slowdive, Pink Floyd, Sparklehorse, Spiritualized, Radiohead and more. Just a bunch of small town kids in a small town trying to make the biggest sound possible.

In a very short period of time Sundress was receiving copious amounts of attention, playing to packed crowds across Texas and causing a ‘hypnotic plague’. They’ve been deemed ‘Best New Act’ out of North Texas by multiple newspapers and local magazines.

Over the past four years, Fool's Gold has established itself as a new kind of independent record company, one just as comfortable introducing once-unknown artists like Duck Sauce, Kid Cudi and Kid Sister to the world, as throwing sold-out parties where Kanye West and Drake just happen to stop by and hang out, or splashing their irreverent, eye-popping visual attitude across everything from vinyl sleeves to rubber ducks. Through the catalog of work and the family of artists they've curated, Fool's Gold has become a name you can trust for new and interesting work in every context.

Their latest endeavor to proudly sport the gold bar logo is 536 Metropolitan, a top-to-bottom transformation of Fool's Gold's storefront office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn into a French bistro-inspired retail experience, featuring a wooden bar where the taps have been replaced by fully-stocked record crates, custom wallpaper and art prints, and an ever-changing selection of exclusive new merchandise alongside rare finds from the FG archives. Equal parts vinyl mecca, gallery space and clothing boutique, 536 Metropolitan launches as an instant must-visit for music fans of all kinds.

Along with Fool's Gold's own music and merchandise, 536 Metropolitan will also serve as a launchpad for product collaborations with like-minded international brands. The store opens with a collection of FG-designed luxury laptop, iPad and digital camera cases from the Italian compmany Pijama, with a line of audiophile-quality Fool's Gold headphones (for DJs and iPod-ers alike) made by Copenhagen-based AiAiAi to follow this Fall. Yet before it's even been officially announced, the most sought-after upcoming Fool's Gold collab is a limited-edition Members Only leather jacket, as worn onstage by A-Trak and Dave1 of Chromeo. These items will also be available on FG's new online store launching the same date as the shop.

Come see 536 Metropolitan in person when it is unveiled to the public Friday, June 24th. The Fool's Gold founders will be hosting a cocktail hour for friends, family and press from 5-7pm. Afterwards, there will be an official launch party for the Members Only collaboration at surprise location on the west side of Manhattan to be announced this week.

Montreal, (QC)-French-singing rockersMalajube have announced the U.S. release of their new full-lengthLa Caverne via MB3 Records (Royskopp, GavinFriday). The digital version of the album will be released on July12th with a physical release date of September13th. The band who recently performed in New York withThe Besnard Lakes and Wintersleep have been killing it withmainstream English audiences despite their adherence to singing inFrench. The band deliver music that veers from progressive pop todance floor centric indie rock, complex but always catchy. The highdegree of songwriting led early press to lovingly tag them as the Frenchlanguage cousin of Arcade Fire.

La Caverne is the band’sfourth full-length album following highly regarded predecessors LeCompte Complet (2004), Trompe-L'Oeil (2007)and Labyrinthes (2009). Members Thomas Augustin,Francis Mineau, Mathieu Cournoyer and Julien Mineau self-produced the albumwith long-time collaborator Ryan Battistuzzi mixing. The album’stitle (the cavern in english) is taken from the studio the album wasrecorded in Quebec which the band says was a "geodesic modern cavern, withmultiple triangular faces." The album has wowed press in earlyreviews such as Pitchfork who said “the band has exhibited a knackfor fusing psychedelia, prog- and classic-rock, disco, and new wave intoexuberant, easily grasped big-tent indie pop.” Chromewaves saidthat “La caverne is leaner and more focused than eitherTrompe-l’oeil or Labyrinthes and also possibly their mostimmediate.”

LOS ANGELES - With two major label albums under their belt, years of touring, a MTV reality series Buzzin', and Bananabeat, the burgeoning one-stop artist collective which includes recording and TV production facilities, as well as divisions for internet and street marketing, brand alliances, tour promotion, management and booking, Shwayze and Cisco Adler have accomplished quite a great deal since their momentous meeting just three short years ago.

On Island In The Sun, their first truly independent album, slated for release August 16th under Bananabeat Records, the duo now officially goes by the name Shwayze & Cisco Adler (abbrev. Shwayze & Cisco) to express the true nature of the collaboration.

"We've both grown as people and as artists," says Adler, who first met Aaron Smith a.k.a Shwayze when the rapper jumped on-stage during Adler's previous band's set and began freestyling. The pair immediately hit it off. "We were really just two dudes in a Malibu studio having fun and making music as a soundtrack. It all came from that."

"The core of this record was just us jamming together," says Shwayze. "The little break we took from the last record, made us each stronger in our areas. I think we're back to where we were when we started. We've been a duo since day one. Shwayze and Cisco Adler is a better representation of what it really is."

The album, produced by Adler in Bananabeat Studios, will include the title track, a breezy acoustic number, and "Butterflies," a song first previewed on the FREE The W's mixtape released earlier this year. Adler, who has recently worked with Mike Posner, G. Love, and Unwritten Law to name a few, was eager to get back into the studio with his partner in rhyme and write the next chapter in the duo's career.

Shwayze & Cisco will hit the road with Slightly Stoopid and Rebelution on the Seedless Summer Tour 2011 tour, starting July 21 in Missoula, MT., running through August 27 in Chicago, IL.

Hailing from a small town in Wisconsin, CHALLENGER! was formed by Chris Burton and Mike Potter in mid 2010. Taking current electronica to the next level, these guys are pushing the envelope by creating dance-core music that forces listeners to sing along while delivering hard-hitting club beats. CHALLENGER! was originally created with the intent to play covers, but it wasn't long before the boys realized their full potential writing original songs. It only took a few months before CHALLENGER! had an EP ready to record, and in February 2011, their EP "PWNZ" was released on iTunes.

The band are currently at JTW Recording studio (with producer Joel Wanasek) laying down tracks for their upcoming inVogue release due out this summer. CHALLENGER! are also preparing for a tour throughout the Midwest and East Coast of the United States, which will be announced soon, in support of their current self released EP "PWNZ".
