Artist ‘Fed Up’ has come a long way since March of 2016. I discovered his track “Grim” on soundcloud in early 2016 when he still went under the name “Rotallicso.” The track had only 1,000 plays (Now at 57K) and I figured I found an underground dubstep anthem. However, one month later at our event Global Dub Festival, headliner Datsik played out one of his tracks. At that moment I knew Fed Up’s music was going to hit some great success. I kept my eye on his soundcloud and Facebook and the artist’s outlets seem to have gone dark for 6 months. 2 days ago he posted his 3-song preview for his EP “D… Read More

Whether you have loved and supported him since “Strobe” days or hate his blunt and often times narcissistic personality, Joel Zimmerman—otherwise known as Deadmau5 has, time and time again, impressed the electronic music genre with his incredible production skills and, be it for reasons beneficial or detrimental, has established himself as one of the most notorious producers of this era. Rumors of his new album were quickly confirmed by the artist, and come the month of September, we can likely expect an incredible work of art which combines Deadmau5’s classic electronic synth and modernized p… Read More
Yesterday, producer Samisoni Koroitamudu A.k.a. BIG MAAK passed away in a fatal car wreck. All of us at Global are mourning his Death and loss of his presence in the scene. Samisoni has been on the come up since Bassnectar and Diplo picked him and his music up earlier this year, and recently announced an upcoming milestone set at EDC Orlando in November.
He recently played a set in the Campgrounds at Basscenter in Commerce City, Colorado. As he arrived to the stage I spotted him and bolted to the entrance. I eagerly and unprofessionally introduced myself before he even made it on stage and he… Read More
Alongside modern EDM-powerhouses including but not limited to Herobust and San Holo, The Chainsmokers are continuing their red-hot musical successes into the beautiful bass capital—and we can’t wait. Following their record-shattering tune, “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya, The Chainsmokers, comprised of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have, in recent news, paired up with musical pixie Halsey to create the fluffy electronic pop-synth tune “Closer”. The song has not only reached over seven hundred thousand plays on Soundcloud and even has had even higher numbers of Spotify, but recently approac… Read More
Bronze Whale is back with their first original track of the year. 'Hear Me' is a melodic trap song featuring beautiful vocals and an emotional progression. This Austin-based duo features Aaron Jaques and Benny Alley. 2016 has been a big year for the duo with their remixes for Crywolf's 'Slow Burn' and Imad Royal's 'Down For Whatever' being massive hits. Bronze Whale shows us with 'Hear Me' that they can produce an original track just as well as they can remix. I look forward to more tunes from the duo later this year.… Read More
Quality music videos are getting harder to come by these days, but Crywolf takes a beautiful track and turns it into a heartbreaking story in his new music video. Crywolf takes the powerful track Anachronism from his most recent album Cataclasm, and turns it into an emotional rollercoaster of cinematography. The video doesn't pull any punches; it is a raw look into Justin Phillips life, but the haunting imagery and open-ended lyrics provide for some deep introspection as well.
The beautiful landscapes, the straightforward footage and the ominous atmosphere make this a very uniq… Read More
The end of summer is nowhere near close, or so it seems, in the beautiful bass state as the Colorado musical festival season continues into the hottest hours of the night. Vertex, Colorado’s new festival which took place in Buena Vista starting on Friday and ending in the early hours of Monday morning. The festival is quite literally showcasing Colorado’s best assets in an art-and-outdoorsy vibrational manner, was the host to artists including Alabama Shakes, Odesza, and Seven Lions.
Jeff Montalvo, or Seven Lions (a name he selected off a character from one of his favorite books) is noto… Read More
Wrapped in fame and notoriety, Martin Garrix has arguably become one of dance music's leading contemporary names. From being one of the youngest star DJs the industry has seen, to working with the likes of Usher and more, Garrix has found himself enshrouded in the elite of the music industry. While in the past he was found by many to have a very cookie cutter sound that initially detracted from the heavier dance fans, Garrix has lately found his creative energies beaming to find new outlets through varieties of sound that has shown his level of articism is top tier.

Have you ever wanted to experience living inside your favorite 8-bit games from your childhood? If Pokemon Go has shown us anything, it's that we definitely all feel nostalgia for those old school games that you can't believe you spent 80 hours playing. So when I heard that Dreamcasts and 2ToneDisco had come together to make a track, and heard the first few seconds, I knew I was in for a treat. Let me start off with the fact that the album art in general is actually an old SEGA so if that doesn't get your flashback scenes to hot summer days playing Sonic going I don't know what will.

SFX as a company has been making headlines left and right over the past few years, for all the right and wrong reasons. From becoming dance music's biggest conglomerate owning names like Beatport, Life in Color and more, to their following financial struggles that came from, preportedly, ex-CEO Robert Sillerman's poor business decisions and spreading themselves to thin, SFX has had a crazy turn from becoming the king of the hill to facing bankruptcy all in a mere 5 year period. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, many were questioning where SFX would end up.
Now, they finally seem to be… Read More
Craz has been killing it this month with two awesome singles. "Climbing Out" was a beautiful experimental melodic bass track that dropped earlier this month. Craz released "I Said" today, which is a trap track at heart, but as always Craz blurs genre lines and presents us with an overall banger. "I Said" is as glitchy as ever, featuring chopped vocals from Key and Peele, adding a comedic element to his trippy sounds. Here is the skit which inspired the track:
After blowing up last year with his "Hotta EP" and his collab with Bassnectar "Thursty," Craz has continued to develop hi… Read More
