HOUNDS & SENOJNAYR – “WRATH”

Fresh delivery from Hucci’s label VERYON ARCHE. “Wrath” could be the soundtrack for 1000 short films. Near melancholy but never dull moods penetrate throughout and set the tone that HOUNDS & SENOJNAYR have crafted. This is the kind of song that fans will be referencing for a long time. “Wrath” is unchained to convention past the somewhat standard but well layered instruments and sounds. H&S take us through a gothic landscape, delicately assault us with some brassy synths, and then sweep it all into an eastern style swing that’s stronger than codeine. I keep pressing rewind and writing a new film in more »

Scissors Burst the Pop Music Bubble [FREE DOWNLOAD]

“Face the facts” – as they say. Well “they” actually don’t show their faces but what they do show, is a great taste in music. They call themselves “Scissors” and they just droped a remix of LA producer Nathaniel Knows’s single “Do You Even”. From the forward moving Electro original, the track received an allover renovation to fit into the newer future bass genre. The song takes the elements of the original and elevates them to an existence beyond that of your average remix. To take something and give it a new energy is a wonderful way to pay tribue more »

Artist Spotlight: Jessica Audiffred, the Mexico City Bass Baroness

Bass and Trap artist Jessica Audiffred has been on a roll over the last year. With backing from brands like Pioneer and Beats Audio, and even artist Flux Pavilion, it appears Jessica’s imminent come-up is more of a formality at this point, with the hard work already done. A dominant force already in the Mexican festival scene, 2017 appears to be the year where the Mexico City native will transition her momentum into the global scene. It’s easy to see why Jessica is such a powerhouse in the Mexican festival scene just by previewing any of her sets. Each mix more »

Coming Soon: Riff Raff in Melbourne @ Max Watts, 11th June.

When you have label affiliations from Swishahouse to Mad Decent and collaborated with the likes of Diplo, Action Bronson, the Far East Movement and Katy Perry amongst others, as well as tried to ‘out Franco’ James Franco, it’s safe to say you’re not boring. The Freestyle Scientist, the Neon Icon, the Peach Panther, the Aquaberry Aquarius; Horst “Riff Raff” Simco is anything but boring. Let’s not make it about all the glitter though, if you think he can’t rap then you’re dead wrong. “Yeah, Neato, I beat up the block like Stephen Segal, pour a four of Pellegrino, driving backwards through more »

Dive On In, With Okami’s ‘Into The Sea’ Remix

Australian producer, Okami, is a name everyone needs to know.  His “video game music” is heavily influenced by his love for the games he plays, especially Super Mario World; hence his latest album “Super Okami World.” He has definitely created his own, unique sound in all of his music – a lot of his music reminds me of what Porter Robinson would not only listen to, but produce himself.  Especially his latest remix to Dimatik’s “Into The Sea” feat the ever effervescent Enya Angel. The best part about music is the feelings that it gives you when you listen to it. more »

Lil Uzi Vert – XO TOUR Llif3 (Produced By TM88)

Coachella Valley Music & Arts // Playboi Carti With Lil Uzi Vert “Two of rap’s most buzzed about young stars came together during one of their Coachella sets: Playboi Carti appeared to perform “Woke Up Like This” during collaborator Lil Uzi Vert’s Sunday appearance.” –Rolling Stone Magazine  “Lil Uzi Vert is, for better or for worse, yanking people into the future, a world in which rap is a swirling kaleidoscope of post-regional styles and post-genre sounds…Uzi is the proper arrival, pushing that sound into more colorful, gleeful territory with the help of a murderers’ row of current producers.” – noisey more »

Artist Spotlight: Axen (TrapStyle Australia)

When it comes to exciting young Australian producers it’s hard to look past wonder kid Jackson Brown, better known as Axen. After a steady rise to popularity over the past couple of years, which included a string of well received free downloads and being named as an InTheMix “new breed top 10 producer you need to hear” the Perth based producer took a brief hiatus to focus on his sound and hone his craft and the results speak for themselves! Experimental sounds, hard hitting trap vibes, big horns, plenty of emotion and a heavy dose of bass, the young producer more »

Not Yr Babe Is On A Mission And Here’s Why

Not your babe. Not your girl, sweetie, honey. Not Yr Babe, a Philadelphia based collective, seeks to rebrand the image of women in EDM. NYB founder and producer Ashley Burkart, aka ABUR, started Not Yr Babe as a way for female-identifying producers to connect. Noticing a lack of such producers in the Philadelphia scene, Burkart started the collective not as a group, but as a simple way for producers to link up. Only a short time after NYB’s founding, Burkart and friend Megan Kaulfer were booking shows and fundraisers showcasing local artists. Not Yr Babe successfully kicked off with a more »

Artist KaTT Takes Narrative Approach To Music In ‘The Opus Collection’

After hearing a playlist entitled ‘Opus Ira‘ by Toronto producer KaTT, there was no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to be a real force in the current Trap scene and Bass scene in general. A holistically structured body of works, this project delivers not only on each individual song but also as a collective composition, like chapters of a book. And they literally flow into each other. The ending of each song serves as the beginning of the next, emphasizing the connected nature of the story. The theme is very clear: “Ira”, meaning wrath. ‘Opus Ira’ take more »

Nerdology – Pretty Fly For A White Samurai (TSAU004)

Imagine for a moment if you will, that Dutch violinist and conductor Andre Rieu was a selectable character in Mortal Kombat. Seems a bit far fetched but Donald Trump is now President of the United States and Pitbull is still making sales, so anything is possible. Now, if Andre Rieu were to go toe to toe with robot cyborg Cyax, you could probably drop “Pretty Fly For A White Samurai” by Nerdology as the theme song and be pretty confident that Shang Tsung would let you keep your spine based on track selection alone. It’s a fitting song for a more »

SWAGE – How We Do [FREE DOWNLOAD]

When the man behind the booty-shaking-beats drops a new tune, you put your headphones on and crank it to 11. SWAGE recently gave out a tormenting break-beat track that breathes life in to the dance floor for free download on the cloud. “How We Do” is the freshest slice of pie from SWAGE that delivers a thump with a drizzle of wtf on top. The track takes off with a dark and minimal house beat while bits of texture fill the backgroud. Rap lyrics float over splashes of noise as energy builds with a snare roll and a chant of more »

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 »
