We were all blown away by the Darkstar EP earlier this year, so expectations are high for Datsik’s Sensei EP, which is set to be released on December 16. Datsik has been very generous with singles for this EP, releasing 3 over the 3 weeks. ‘Just Saiyan’ was the first single of the EP which was released in November. The track is heavy on the bass and somewhat reminiscent of old school Datsik tracks in structure. Last week Datsik released the title track, which is a unique blend of filthy dubstep and melodic chants. The most recent single is a collab with Virtual Riot called ‘Nasty’ and it’s jus… Read More
Deadmau5’s W:/2016ALBUM/: Track by Tweet with Joel Zimmerman
Love him, hate him, or love/hate getting sucked into every ounce of drama surrounding him, you have to give at least a little respect to the man behind the giant LED mouse head. Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, has been nominated for six Grammys, earned eight Gold singles, and as of December 2nd, he can add ANOTHER #1 dance album, W:/2016ALBUM/, to his already impressive roster (which also includes being a character in the video game, “Goat Simulator”... just FYI).
After announcing the new album was almost finished via… Read More

The producer based out of Sydney, Australia has officially broken through and is poised to have a monster 2017. Earlier this year her track ‘I Want U’ was featured on the popular sports video game ‘NBA 2K17’ and fans have been eager to hear what is next for the producer known for her energetic live shows.

After a successful year of touring, releases, and viral fame, Getter is setting sail on the S.S. HJ of success. Tanner Petulla (AKA Getter) has been uploading daily vlogs for a solid week now. And if you’ve ever been exposed to his personality you know exactly what to expect.

Before we get into the bulk of the argument for either side, defining what the differences between a DJ set and a Live set is important. Live sets are, for the most part, an artist performing his own portfolio of work, with live instruments like piano, saxophone, or electric guitar to name a few. Performing on drum pads and having live vocals also are what can separate a live set from a DJ set.
DJ sets are a large mix of different artist’s songs that can either stick to a certain subgenre of EDM or span across many. They stick to performing on the CDJs and weave from a pre-recorded song to song
Adventure Club’s new track “Firestorm” feat. Sara Diamond (out Friday November 11, 2016) has swept across our Soundcloud streams and into our hearts once again with a heartwarming and powerful listen. With fresh female vocals to the scene and mimicking styles such as Tove Lo (accompanying Flume) and Daya (The Chainsmokers’ Don’t Let Me Down prodigy at the age of only 18.) The Canadian-based duo Adventure Club has consistently produced feels-y soft electronic tracks and remixes, and have notoriously incredible production in their live sets. We are more than excited to see where their progressio… Read More
Stabby is Never Say Die Records newest talent; bringing his complex and heavy sounds from Bangkok, Thailand, Stabby's debut EP is sure to be one for the filth books. So far Stabby has dropped three singles and the anticipation for the full release grows with each track. Stabby incorporates highly technical builups which are remniscent of old-school hardstyle with a blend of finely tuned trap beats. When a Stabby buildup drops, it does so with a bang. Fast and heavy basslines alongside glitchy synths and drums, what more can a basshead ask for?
Stabby is the perfect artist for Never Say Die, a… Read More
Infamous Australian duo Knife Party (Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen) have been on a non-stop ascent into some of electronic music’s most energetic, drum-and-bass filled beats--with nothing other than some of the hottest trap, house, and dubstep producers to follow in their footsteps. After Knife Party released “Battle Sirens” featuring legendary guitarist Tom Morello, deep trap producer Brillz released his remix of the tune featuring trap-like riffs and emphasis on the deep guitar notes. Following just four days later (October 19, 2016) Datsik and Bais Haus’ EPHWURD produced a bubbly, future h… Read More
Hot off of SKisM’s Black Label XXL, and following closely in the growing dub-steps of artists Midnight Tyrannosaurus, Habstrakt, Megalodon, comes LAXX, trap-and-dubstep fusing star who made his way to Denver this past weekend for Colorado’s hosting of Safe in Sound Festival in Broomfield, Colorado. LAXX (often stylized as L ∆ X X and otherwise known as Jamie) has come to Colorado to debut his signature trap-bass sound times in the past, swinging by venues including Beta Nightclub Cervantes Other Side. His signature sound and interesting fusion of both hard trap and the notorious Never Say Di… Read More
Bonobo has always been a favorite of mine due to his undeniably unique style and wide range of sounds. His newest single 'Kerala' is no exception here; released alongside an eerie and atmospheric music video. This music video is somewhat stressful on the first watch due to the urgency and panic that the main character is experiencing. However, the track is a melodic, uplifting journey, which is what really shines in this release. The buildup has that classic psychedelic Bonobo style, while the finale brings new effects which feel eerily nostalgic. Bonobo's style has a very natural progression… Read More
On a point of subjectivity, Denver has been crowed the “Dubstep capital of the U.S.” by many genre leading artists. And while genre specificity aside, Denver and Colorado in general has a HUGE electronic music scene. Fans here never have to go more than a few days between concerts. We have so many avenues to appeal to every niche and every crowd of music fans.
And a promotion company that prides itself in the underground side of bass music is Denver’s own Sub.Mission. Sub.Mission has been throwing unique events in Colorado for nine years, with an in-house line up with artists like The Widdle… Read More
