No, not even the Beatport office is immune to the “Harlem Shake” phenomenon. Count us among the legion of Baauer fans fleshing out the meme. And count us among the fans of Technology Will Save Us, Isolee’s new “Allowance,” and plenty more in today’s news roundup.

- We’re always excited with the promise of new music from Isolee, and now we’ve got the latest nightmarish video from the German producer, entitled “Allowance.”


- Not to be outdone by everyone else, we too are “Harlem Shake” enthusiasts. Here’s what occupied the folks in our Denver office last Friday afternoon:


- Though he may not have taken the trophy home, Eric Prydz was a strong contender for a Grammy with his remix of M83′s “Midnight City.” Before the awards ceremony, he spoke with Vibe. (full story)

- Bummer. UK producer Blawan has had to cancel his Australia/New Zealand tour due to health issues. (full story)

- If you haven’t checked out FaltyDL’s new mix for the Fader, you should. Lots of lovely new tunes from the man himself, plus more from Gerry Read, Four Tet, and others. (full story)

- DJ Toxic Rainbow, who won our Play contest with My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult a few months back, today releases his official remix of “Kooler Than Jesus.”


- There’s been a bit of a venue change for some of this year’s Sonar events, but more exciting is the announcement of new lineup additions, which include TNGHT, Matthew Herbert, Derrick May, Major Lazer, and more. (full story)
