Earlier this year, What So Not released his watershed debut album, Not All The Beautiful Things, featuring a number of supreme collaborators such as SkrillexSan HoloRome FortuneSLUMBERJACK, and more. Soon after, he kept the brilliance breathing, releasing a four-track remix pack with VolacKaz James, and ZEKE BEATS of the third single off the album, “Beautiful.”

Now, the Australian solo act has unleashed an 11-track remix compilation album with additional reworks from Kidswaste, 12th Planet, AC Slater, Daktyl, graves, as well as a wealth of up-and-coming producers in the electronic space. From bass music to melodic pop to house to psy-trance, this project profoundly reflects What So Not’s versatility since the project’s inception when Flume was in the picture.

The singles tapped for makeovers include “Goh” with Skrillex and KLP, “Stuck In Orbit” with BUOY, “If You Only Knew” with San Holo and Daniel Johns, and again “Beautiful” with  Winona Oak. Some of the highlights off the project include glittering guitar melodies on Kidwaste’s rendition of “Stuck In Orbit,” Champagne Drip‘s contrast between celestial and earth-rumbling grittiness on “Goh,” Yvng Jalapeño‘s jungle-infused “Beautiful,” and 12th Planet’s mellifluously heavy version of “If You Only Knew.”

Another National Voter Registration Day has come and gone in the US. This year, a sundry of the electronic circuit’s top-drawer DJs and producers observed the holiday, which falls on the fourth Tuesday of every September, by encouraging their own constituents (listeners) to exercise their right to vote.

With a number of high-stakes US Congressional seats up for grabs this year in the often overlooked mid-term elections, artists like ODESZAMoby, Bassnectar, and Kill The Noise took to Twitter to acknowledge what’s at stake. This year, registering is easier than ever, with not only Google, but social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit helping to streamline the process by hosting registration links in various sections of their respective interfaces. So whether you’re a hardcore rail-rider or a laid-back electronica enthusiast, electronic lovers of all shapes and sizes can and should employ their ability to have a say in government.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AC Slater x Champion – Diamonds

AC Slater x Champion – DiamondsAC Slater Bass Culture

AC Slater and Champion have released a bass house heater, “Diamonds,” from UKF‘s fourth Bass Culture project. With haunting underlings laying the frame for old-school house percussion elements, ad libs fly through the track into alarming anticipation. The hook comes in hot, with groovy bass synths bouncing to house rhythms.

Slater has had quite the month, after releasing his Undefeated Champions EP off his own Night Bass records. Collaborating with artists such as Wax MotifChris Lorenzo, and Redlight, the label boss continues to show his prominence in the popular bass house realm.

In addition to his new single, AC Slater, also released a mix for Tiësto‘s CLUBLIFE podcast series. The mix can be found on the series’ SoundCloud page, as bass house heads will get their four-on-the-floor fix.

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’

Earlier this year, Kaskade tapped the BROHUG trio, Mr. Tape, and Madge for some “Fun” — a funky guitar and bouncy bell synth-led house single, crafted with a penchant for playtime. Now, AC Slater joins the Phlegmatic Dogs duo in introducing the track to a diversion of the darker variety.

While AC offers the new remix his airy, reverb-heavy melodicism in the interludes, the drops are riddled with the Dogs’ signature static-heavy bass. The remix leaves Madge’s frisky vocal cut intact, tinged with a bit of pitched-down distortion. Similarly, traces of the rest of the frolicsome original’s frill still permeate throughout the remix—though they too seem to have been dropped in the Night Bass blender.

The Phlegmatic Dogs are chronic releasers inside AC’s dusky house haven, Night Bass Records. Last year, the imprint housed their breakthrough track “Keepmastik,” which plagued house sets for months after its release with its fierce rhythmic arrangement and growling bassline.

The king of Night Bass, AC Slater, is renowned for his deep, twisted cuts on house music tracks that feature grimy takes on dark originals. The g house legend has released a three-track EP, I Wanna Show You, which includes a plethora of sounds and styles within each piece.

The title track opens the EP and showcases intriguing distorted vocals layered on top of harmonic chord progressions. The groovy feel is rounded out by jazzy piano riffs and ominous undertones. “I Wanna Show You” is tied together by an energetic rhythm and colorful samples of instrumentation.

“Amen Tribe” flaunts AC Slater’s versatility in production, as the producer adds a dimension of vibrant tribal sounds meshed together with an infectious beat and alluring percussion. With an entrancing melody, “Amen Tribe” will take listeners on a wild trip full of lively surprises.

The last track on the EP, “Can’t Come Down,” is a surefire dance floor hit with an enthralling drop full of otherworldly beats. Complimented by bouncy throbs of bass, and edgy notes scattered throughout the piece, “Can’t Come Down” keeps it fresh with Young Lyxx adding some fire vocals into the mix.

Undoubtedly, AC Slater’s I Wanna Show You will have listeners on their toes for its innovative sound design and creative ingenuity.
