Nitti Gritti and Holly Team Up on “Milky”

Two of bass music’s most prominent up and coming artists have put their heads together to bring a hybrid banger with some moobahton flavors sprinkled on top. “Milky” from Nitti Gritti and Holly is the newest tune to smash soundcloud pages everywhere. With Yung Nitti’s high energy tracks and Holly’s immersive style combining, it’s no wonder this song is flame. “Milky” takes off with a chunky beat paired with plucky vocal chops and interesting percussion. A cheeky arp creates tension as the word “chocolate” fizzes through the buildup. We climb the bass mountain to arrive at the almighty drop which more »

BIZZAR Hypnotizes with “False Pretenses”

Having recently been introduced to BIZZAR and his music, I’m quickly becoming a huge fan. With the emotions my existence went through after hearing “Castle”, I was ecstatic upon seeing a fresh upload on BIZZAR’s page. The track “False Pretenses” falls in line with the style BIZZAR is trying to push; forward-thinking, post-edm with R&B vibes and downtempo flavors. The track begins with a trickle of water creating the energy and a plucky melody setting the mood. Moans from a soft voice fizzle through the foreground as the oncoming beat slowly rises up. We are greeted by a chill beat, more »

Party Favor Brings Signature Sound With “WAWA”

Back with his first original release since dropping the 2016 #2 iTunes Dance charting ‘Party & Destroy’ EP, Party Favor presents new single, “WAWA.” The producer’s familiar mix of festival trap and bass is evident throughout the track’s explosive roars and wobbles, giving you three minutes of non-stop energy. The music video for WAWA is entertaining to say the least; centered around an underground puppy ring, the video pokes fun at illegal fight clubs which accompanies the music appropriately applying a high energy theme and comedic motif. It’s not out til Monday though so you’ll have to wait! Party Favor more »

NiGHTS Has Solidified Themselves with “IRREPLACEABLE”

Wonder, beauty, sadness, longing for. All these elements are brought forth by NiGHTS’ newest release “IRREPLACEABLE”. These boys are slaying what the kids these days call “the feels”. Our journey through sound begins with a shimmer of frequencies. A voice beckons us forward through the mist as a simple snap leads into a chill beat. Echoing ambient noise fades in and out while the minimal kick/snap beat marches forward. After a break to ponder our throughts, snares pan around our head as energy picks up ever so slightly. NiGHTS delivers a chill melody using vocal cuts that move up and more »

BIZZAR Storms The Musical Castle

When you swim in the grey, oversaturated ocean that is the electronic music scene for so long you come to find that there are fewer and fewer unique producers on the come up. Luckily when I heard BIZZAR’s first ever release I almost ruined my pants with excitement. BIZZAR walked into the gladiator ring with naught but his first release “Castle” and instantly became a new favorite artist of mine. This dude has got some pure, unadulterated, emotional music that pushes the boundaries of sound. The track opens with simple static and a quiet piano melody accompanied by a man more »

Ray Volpe Goes Stellar With Outerworld

Young Ray Volpe. The kid from North Carolina who can’t stop laying down tracks that permeate through out the dubstep world, resignating with beautiful vocals and destructive noise.

His latest release “Outerworld” fits perfectly in this category. Our stellar ride through galactic bass begins with a blast of sound, a warping harmonic and Ray Volpe’s own voice singing “I’m not from this world”. An more »

Lektrique Talks New Music and Life with Trapstyle

Lektrique has been a consistent name in the music scene for a couple of years from his own productions to helping the hard-hitting Kannibalen Records with Black Tiger Sex Machine. His newest track “Shred” is an electro-destroyer that radiates heavy energy. We wanted to share that track with you and sit down to have a few words with Lektrique himself. “Shred” features Lektrique’s heavy, grinding saws and deep orchestral bellows that he robustly applies. The track opens with a funky, fidgety beat where upon a blasting guitar melts our faces off with long drawn out chords. A quick build delivers more »

If not, let’s introduce you to his music with his latest dubstep anthem “Bermuda”. The last time we visited Ray he had just put out his Bipolar EP which earned him the attention of top-level players in the scene such as party-boy Getter (whom Ray played a few shows with last year).

Lightning In A Bottle, or LIB for short, brought to you by the Do Lab is quickly becoming one of the biggest transformational festivals in the country.

Mikes Revenge – El Jefe [PRIME]

Music can sometimes hit stale points but with this new Mikes Revenge track out now on TrapStyle Prime we got a banger that’s unique to keep it fresh. “EL Jefe” is the trippy ride through bass and space that we are lucky enough to share with you from Mikes Revenge. The Atlanta producer has quietly released a storm of solid tracks and “El Jefe” is no different. The tune jumps right in with a latin-feeling, 4-on-the-floor beat and utilizes an array of snappy percussive hits. We meet with an exuberant bellow of horns and other pieces of brasswork into an more »

XTALS – PORPHYRY [PRIME]

Today we’re sharing a fat ass trap tune from our TrapStyle Prime SoundCloud from young gun XTALS. When we heard how original “PORPHYRY” was we had to grab it to slang to the masses. The super tweaked out trap song begins with interesting nature sounds, detuned vocals and a distorted horn rising. With a buildup of energy and reverbed claps the song drops into a thumping trap beat. The 808s are saturated but clean, the vocal chops are precise and provide an interesting arrangement. There are so many dips and pops to keep the track moving and attention grabbing it’s more »

Balistex & Yeurotoxin – Skaarl [PRIME]

If anyone knows me, they know that I live for dubstep. Something about a simple kick/snare combo and crazy bass speaks to my soul so I’m stoked on the track we snagged from Balistex and Yeurotoxin for TrapStyle Prime. The track in question “Skaarl” is a gremlin of a dubstep tune. With a pull of inspiration from the ever popular League of Legends game, the song begins with a melodic intro and samples from the game characters. The playful samples bring us up to the drop after a short buildup and we are met with a curious collection of interesting more »

Beyond Wonderland: The Endless Sea Is A Go

One of my favorite musical events was Beyond Wonderland 2011 (mostly due to the fact that it was Porter Robinson’s first show on the West Coast and Showtek still played Hardstyle back then) and I will definitely be copping a ticket to this year’s festivities. Beyond Wonderland 2017 will be taking place over two days on March 24th & 25th at the forever-nostalgic NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California. Bringing a fresh face to the event, Insomniac is dropping an underwater theme on the two days of musical madness and calling it Beyond Wonderland: The Endless Sea. Two Day more »

We snagged a track up for free download on our TrapStyle Prime SoundCloud from Tommy Walker and Jevi entitled “What’s Wrong” to give these talented musicians some extra clout. The tune has an extremely interesting intro applying the use of warped bell sounds and a robotic voice speaking through the reverb. A solid beat is laid down with a nice hip hop feel as the track picks up energy. With a quick build more »

We got tired of waiting forever for track releases so with TrapStyle Prime we release a track a day for free. High Zombie got our next one with “Sanctuary”. High Zombie is known to make a variety of tunes but we’re focusing on his heavy trap release “Sanctuary”. The track starts foreboding but with a mellow vibe as some tamberines shake over ghostly wails. The melody comes in on the beat and we get a snappy mix of percussion with reverbed bell hits. As you vibe with the song the hats twist and turn around the beat, your head bobs more »
