It's been nearly a year since we have had an EP from the well known duo Knife Party. The Australian pair have made fans wait patiently for their new EP called Haunted House and it's causing a great amount of bickering. The new EP consists of 4 head banging, fist pumping, bass moving tracks. The album at times can be a bit boundless and over the top, but also, the album is really appealing and makes you want to hit the dance floor pumping your fist in the air.
The duo open up their new album with a track called "Power Glove." They put together tons of distorted bass chains that includes a top… Read More
Barrett Richards has been producing music for many years under different names. Hailing from San Francisco, this future bass/dubstep artist has come out with a new project called Kastle. It's quite the retreat from his usual hard-hitting house, dubstep, garage and other really bass-heavy music. By assembling this powerful full-length album, Kastle is on a whole new wave of ingenious levels with his self-titled LP Kastle, which came out recently under his own label Symbols Recordings.
Barrett has acquired a new sound that is stimulating to the mind a… Read More
Bonobo is one of the few artists that is able to formulate a wide range of natural sounding beats and orchestrate it perfectly. The UK based producer has just dropped his 5th studio album and it’s a great successor to his 2010 classic Black Sands.
Just like his prior album, The North Borders consist of tracks of a relatively down-tempo complexion. It’s an easy listening album, which is great when you want to lounge out after an intense night out at the club.
The North Borders doesn’t miss out on the bouncing momentum of pieces of “Emkay” and “Know You.” His lead single “Cirrus” is a chimin… Read More
Calvin Harris became the first artist to ever have eight singles in the Top Ten chart from one album. Scottish singer, songwriter, DJ and producer Calvin Harris surpassed Michael Jackson last week when his collaboration with Ellie Goulding, "I Need Your Love," rose from No. 11 to No. 7 in the Official UK Top Singles chart. He previously had seven other hits from his album '18 Months' reach the top ten, and the latest one with Ellie Goulding put Calvin in the record books. His previous singles date back to June of 2011 when "Bounce" ft. Kelis peaked at number two. From there it was a flurry of… Read More
Electronic music continues to make huge strides on the path towards genre validation. This time it takes form in a film score produced in part by dubstep artists Nero for the upcoming film 'The Great Gatsby.'
Originally approached by director/producer Baz Luhrmann about creating music for the classic remake, the UK duo were incredibly excited to work on the project. What started out as Nero samples being used during select parts of the film quickly developed into full-on scoring work throughout the length of the feature. The track which eventually made it onto the soundtrack, titled “Into th… Read More
Hip-hop/Electronic (that's right, I didn't say trap) duo TNGHT was easily one of my favorite new acts to surface in 2012. Lunice and Hudson Mohawke are each fantastic producers in their own right, but together they’re unstoppable. “Acrylics” is TNGHT’s first release since their phenomenal self-titled EP came out last year and it’s one that you’ll want to play over and over again. It starts out with the somewhat eerie sounds of a music box and builds into a mass of synths and heavy beats. The duo is able to create a track where there is so much going on but each sound is so expertly crafted and… Read More
For his fourth studio album entitled #willpower, rapper/producer Will.i.am has collaborated with the likes of Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, and Basto. Enter Mat Zo and Arty, unaware of their current "collaboration" with Will.i.am. Released on Will.i.am's Vevo page this morning, is the fifth track off his new album with vocals by Chris Brown. "Let's Go" seems to be a brassy and outright ripoff of Mat Zo and Arty's "Rebound", a classic trance tune. The track doesn't just sample the sound of "Rebound," the whole song is right there in Will.i.am's track without the knowledge, credit, or permi… Read More
