Cazale - The 101

Cazale - The 101

 

Cazale, South East London’s DIY Electro Maestro, unveiled his debut single The 101 (Mode 33 Records) to the world today.

The 101 sees Cazale blending old school electro beats, addictive melodies and live funky bass/guitars to create a new dance music vision. Inspired by the House Music explosion of the 1980’s, this hypnotic single also tips its hat to early New Order, Kraftwerk, Francis Ford Coppola’s film The Conversation, and Jimi Jules.

Cazale’s obsession with vintage drum machines, guitars and basses can be heard and felt in this original sounding debut. “They are songs that de

Wild Culture - Day to Night

Wild Culture - Day to Night

In the mood for deep, dirty, big room bass lines? Look no further than duo Wild Culture’s latest release titled “Day to Night”. Off of Pleasurekraft’s Kraftek label, “Day to Night” is a darkly melodic track featuring heavily distorted vocal samples from 4 Strings hit “Take Me Away Into the Night”. This song is much more than a deep house spin on a decade old trance track, however. Backed by gritty bass lines, twinkling keyboards resemble the pattering of rain creating a an atmospheric effect of dark city streets. Followed by throbbing bass licks, striking high hats, and the occasional piano ch

Indiana - Heart On Fire (SNBRN Remix)

Indiana - Heart On Fire (SNBRN Remix)

Does Summertime’s departure have you down in the dumps? SNBRN’s remix of Indiana’s “Heart On Fire” might just be the cure you need. LA local SNBRN has been killing it all summer with feel good indie dance and deep house remixes, and he obviously doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Not much has come out from this LA producer other than remixes, but check out his remix of 50 Cent’s “21 Questions” if you need any more proof that SNBRN is one up-and-coming producer you need to start paying attention to.


This one is on repeat for me, and hey, it’s a free download so snatch it up while you can.

Etched -Talkin' About

Etched -Talkin' About

 

This one got my head bobbin’ almost immediately when that deep sub kicked in. Etched's past work has revolved more around trap, but he has more recently moved towards a future bass sound that should quickly gain him fans in that genre. Lots of memories of Flume and Kaytranada in this beat, such as the vocal manipulation and panned keys.


The 21 year old UK producer has been in the game for about a year now and has already gotten support from Skream and Benga, Future Bounce, and Victor Niglio. It’s obvious he’s still searching for his signature sound, but he’s doing a damn good job doing

Flume & Chet Faker - Drop the Game (Sweater Beats Remix)

Flume & Chet Faker - Drop the Game (Sweater Beats Remix)

Anyone who has been following the New York future bass boss Sweater Beats lately knows he’s been going in somewhat of a “Flumestep” direction, and his new remix of Flume himself show’s he’s not shying away from that.


Sweater Beats keeps Chet Faker’s original vocals on the track pretty intact, which is great considering what a unique and captivating vocalist Faker proves to be on this track (as well as his own work, see “1998” and/or “Talk is Cheap”).


It’s a great remix of a great track, but if you’re looking for something radically different from the original you won’t find it here.

Surfer Rock Shines Through on

Surfer Rock Shines Through on "Mistakes I've Made"


Dutch-native Eelke Kleijn’s latest release from Spinnin’ Records is a hedonistic anthem with colorful instrumentation that without a doubt draws its inspiration from the heavy guitar reverb sound characteristic of 60’s surf rock. While heavily produced, the effect of layering live instruments with simple beats drives the track forward allowing for self-indulgent vocals to take the wheel. With lyrics like “There’s no future, there’s no past/beating hearts are all we have,” who says summer has to end?

Warning: this track’s breezy Pacific Coast melody may leave you itching to finally take that im

DJ Green Lantern, best known for past beats he has made for rappers, has been dabbling in a bit of EDM recently. He's mostly coming out with trap tunes, but this recent track that he released with our friends over at ThisSongIsSick.com is a must hear.

It's hard to describe its sound but it's definitely a genre-breaker. The finishing product from Green Lantern is an incredibly addicting song that has a mix of future bass, glitch funk/soul, with a trap beat. Definitely give it a listen/download.
