DJ Green Lantern - Funk Space Coaster

DJ Green Lantern - Funk Space Coaster

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.

Jay Z - Tom Ford (PatrickReza & Kname Remix)

Here to kick off your weekend is a remix from PatrickReza and Kname, the second of whom is evidently about two weeks new to the scene according to their Facebook. Their remix is of Jay Z's "Tom Ford," which has seen it's fair share of remixes, especially in the EDM trap scene.

This remix in particular has some great twerk trap sounds that make for an awesome re-interperetation that most remixers of Tom Ford have not been able to discover in their works thus far. So check it out below and be sure to follow the artists (and make 'em clap). Free Download on PatrickReza's Facebook page!

Minnesota - Voyager Album

Minnesota is back at it again, this time with his new album, Voyager. Voyager is filled with all sorts of that future bass and dub style Minnesota is known for and is bound to turn some heads.

Nick Thayer Answers the Big Question Everybody Wants and 'Needs' to Know: How Much Do Producers/DJ's Actually Make?

Nick Thayer Answers the Big Question Everybody Wants and 'Needs' to Know: How Much Do Producers/DJ's Actually Make?

Headytunes.co - [Nick Thayer]: "I wanted to take a second to break some numbers down for you. I’m doing this to be transparent. To let you know what the life of producer/DJ looks like from the financial end. People often think there’s a huge amount of money in this scene. There is, but it is very concentrated and in the hands of a very, VERY few people. The vast majority are on similar numbers to me, running on fumes most of the time to make this thing work. We do it because we LOVE THE ABSOLUTE SHIT out of writing music, playing music and sharing music."

 

Here is a really interesting read

Jack Beats - Beatbox EP

Finally, Jack Beats' Beatbox EP is available for purchase over at Beatport; if you haven't heard 'Beatbox' or the B-side track 'The Ill Shit' yet then you should do yourself the favor of giving it a listen right now. Jack Beats is back at it again and better than ever with their classic style and brand of UK Jackin House in 'Beatbox' while also throwing a touch of Melbourne Bounce onto 'The Ill Shit'.

The songs are a must-have, but I think what got me most excited for the release of this EP was the music video for Beatbox. It is a definite must-watch for all of you EDM fans out there...It fea

Com Truise – Wave 1

Com Truise – Wave 1

Welcome to futures past, where sounds are reminiscent of a familiar yet distant place, planets hover in the horizon and the landscape is dripping with synthesizers and crushing bass.  Dubbed the world’s first “synthetic astronaut” Com Truise aka Seth Haley’s newest release Wave 1 takes me to that distant, futuristic synthwave sanctuary. 

Like something from the cover of an Arthur C. Clarke novel, Com Truise creates a musical landscape that cant help but make you feel nostalgia for a place or time that may or may not exist.  Haley has been making music under the Com Truise moniker since 2010

I hate to say it… but if you missed out on these two nights of absolute wonder and amazement, you’re at quite a loss.  Decadence was an absolute success; and not many people will disagree.  The two night festival with a five star lineup in downtown Denver lit up the whole city and brought 2014 in with pure bliss.  Three stages and tens of thousands of people filled up the giant Denver Convention Center and the party was crazy, with spectacular light shows, festive entertainers, and awesome music and DJ’s.  

Monday began with two stacked stages; TJR taking over the ‘Global Dance Arena’ and B
