With the ever-expanding heavy electronic music scene rising to the peak of its popularity in recent months, especially in the Bass Capital, it is no question some of the biggest names in dubstep (Skism, 12th Planet, Midnight Tyrannosaurus) are gathering influence from heavy synthesizers and repetitive beats to bring the new “riddim” trend (deriving from the Jamaican pronunciation of the English word “rhythm”; structurally containing minimalistic layers, sawtooth-style repetition and few chorus filters) to modern day electronic music.
Artists from across the world are bringing the refined sou… Read More

ZHU has become notorious for maintaining an elusive aura. He’s constantly keeping his future plans under wraps and surprising us with music releases. His latest endeavor “THE BLACKLIZT” is no different. A few days ago the LA producer took to social media to post a grungy black and white video to tease his new track, “Nightcrawler”, but the message behind the video is what has everyone talking.
In the video, we can see a group of people carrying a casket through a cemetery and written on that casket is the names of several producers including Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, Afrojack, and David… Read More
Tyler Nally, AKA GNAR GNAR is most notably known for his recent collaborations on Bassnectar's last two albums 'Unlimited' & 'Into The Sun'. Both collaborative songs "Generate" and "Dream Catcher" have a comedic dynamic between the two going from an audible headband assault narrated by the looping vocals yelling "live and direct" to Dreamcatcher's almost cinematic build to a imaginative nasa blast off. Well, GNAR GNAR has recently released his new song "Monument" and its the angry, lip-curling, off-shoot of what sounds like tribal based metal music gone electronic. Starting off with tribal dru… Read More
The dutch duo “Blasterjaxx” are back, with their brand new EP “XX Files” featuring the classic sounds of one of House music’s biggest names. Released through their sublabel of Spinnin’ Records “Maxximize”, it’s the pairs’ first EP release since 2013’s Koala and it was definitely worth the wait.

After lengthy pleading from his fans, NGHTMRE finally gave in. Yesterday, the Mad Decent artist uploaded his bootleg remix of Travis Scott’s “Goosebumps” onto his Soundcloud. For months, the heavy trap artist has been playing the remix in his live sets, prompting fans to obsess over the unreleased track and demand for its release. It seems the cry out for an upload was heard, as NGHTMRE finally threw the song on Soundcloud. The producer from North Carolina just wrapped a massive U.S. tour with fellow Icon Collective music school duo Slander, and the future looking even brighter for one of 2016’… Read More
The genre mad-man Kayzo recently sat down on Diplo's segment on BBC radio for a one hour exclusive mix. After an immensley successful year and tour, Kayzo has been pushing alot larger names aside as his music and stage prescence demands the respect from audiences and artists alike. With his recent stop at Colorado's Fox theater, myself and a few other Global employees caught his perfeormance and was compleltey shocked.

“I just - I know that once it gets heard I know people are going to connect with it.” This is 22 year old electronic music producer Aash Mehta’s outlook on his brand new EP titled Stardust.
There is an earnestness that comes through when Aash Mehta talks about his music. He speaks with such genuine passion that it’s hard to not let it rub off on you. It’s clear that he cares about the product he is creating and putting out. He longs for success, but not in the way that makes him greedy or money hungry - it’s simply a drive within him. A drive simply to share and create something meaningful.
The Australian electronic band Bag Raiders released their song “Shooting Stars” back in 2010. The track reached number 18 of Triple J Hottest 100 of 2009, and then seemed to fade distantly. And thanks to the “series of tubes” that we call the internet, the fashionability of edgy humor, and the obscure culture behind vaporware. “Shooting Stars” has gone viral, almost 7 years after the original release date. Hit viral memes of photoshopped subjects beaming through space as the Bag Raider’s track accompanies it are most likely hitting your list of social medias. After researching search statistic… Read More
We love REZZ. She treats her fans like gold, putting them to guest list when they’re unable to snag tickets before they sell out. She makes killer tunes (for proof, just listen to “Purple Gusher” a few times). AND apparently, she totally kicks ass at video games. In the midst of traveling Canada and the US on her headlining “Something Wrong Here” tour, REZZ not only found time to conquer the intense horror video game, Silent Hill, she wrote and produced a song to celebrate her victory. She took to her Facebook page Monday to announce the release of the eerie and bass-heavy track, stating “I be… Read More
