Spag Heddy transforms Slander’s ‘Superhuman’ with barbaric bass remix

This post was originally published on this site

Spain-based Spag Heddy has added his special ingredients to Slander‘s “Superhuman,” transforming the emotive feel of the original and wrapping it in pounding, heart-stopping drops for a balance between melodic and dark bass.

Spag Heddy’s initial rise around 2011/2012 came from consistent ingenuity and a cunning drive, which led to the gradual collection of a loyal bass following. Today, he’s known for familiar festival tunes like “Samir” and “Hide,” as well as a hefty handful of remixes, EPs, and singles dropped in the last few years. Spag Heddy continues to lay the groundwork for bass artists of the future.

This post was originally published on this site

Iconic dubstep duo Modestep has released their brand-new track, “Higher,” via Monstercat — showcasing their talent for the first time on the popular Canadian label. The single is the official kickoff for the forthcoming label compilation, Uncaged Volume 4. The daring UK pair also performed the single 6,500 feet above an icy ravine in New Zealand, paying homage to the track’s title.

“Higher” provides nostalgic dubstep notes mixed with smooth vocals — a perfect combination of energy that propels the track from beginning to end. The track showcases Modestep’s ability to create authentic sounds, as 2018 marks more than 10 years of touring and producing for the duo.

IZII & Holly – Drama ft Tapper

This post was originally published on this site

Hip-hop meets electronic music in “Drama” by IZII and Holly featuring Nic Tapper. Tapper raps to a classic hip-hop backdrop in the intro, and as his vocals continue, a subtle build in the background releases into an elaborate electronic drop. The drop transcends genres but could perhaps best be described as a trap-dubstep fusion.

Rising star IZII has garnered the support of Diplo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Borgeous among others since his debut single, “Echo (Let Go),in 2016. IZII enlisted newcomer Holly to co-produce the track, and their styles combined make for a unique and punchy track in “Drama.”

Xan Griffin – Scorpio ft Romy Wave

This post was originally published on this site

In May 2017, Californian producer Xan Griffin began a series of songs named for zodiac signs. Since he started with “Gemini,” he’s gone on to produce “Cancer,” “Leo,” “Virgo” and “Libra,” followed by his latest: “Scorpio.”

“Scorpio” is a transcendent, almost cinematic experience. A minute-long introduction ushers the listener into the latest zodiac installment with a simple melody that gradually builds into a bass-backed rendition of the same theme. At the halfway mark, the listener is introduced to the sweet, enticing vocals of Romy Wave. The vocalist’s heartfelt lyrics add another layer to the already emotional track, helping craft the entrancing soundscape Xan Griffin’s built.

Each zodiac release, though wildly different from the last, carries over an emotion-packed theme that ties the series together.

Listen to Zomboy’s ‘Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1: Remixed’ EP with Doctor P, Gent & Jawns, Habstrakt, more

This post was originally published on this site

When Zomboy unveiled his Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1 EP on Never Say Die Records, fans were treated with four skull-crushing bass tracks originally composed by Josh Mellody himself. The extended play project featured squeaky clean samples, highly rhythmic four-to-the-floor bass lines, and a noticeably strong arrangement. Now the UK-based heavy dubstep producer has released a reprise remix package that features some of the darkest and dirtiest names within commercial dub world.

Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1: Remixed features two divergent takes on each of Zomboy’s originals, including SVDDEN DEATH’s filthy rendition of “Biterz,” KATO and Gentleman’s Club’s take on Mellody’s tour anthem “Youth & Dangerous,” Doctor P’s signature sound design overlaid onto “Rotten,” and a omni-tempo bas house reimagining of “Saints & Sinners” by Habstrakt.

Rickyxsan – Insane

This post was originally published on this site

Rickyxsan has gained significant attention for his high-octane take on bass music, releasing tracks on labels like Mad Decent and Never Say Die. Now joining the Deadbeats crew, the up-and-coming producer has released “Insane,” the first track off the forthcoming Deadbeats compilation.

With a heavy build-up and haunting vocal samples, Rickyxsan perfectly sets the mood for an intense drop, full of booming bass and high-pitched synth stabs. Pausing only for a second, the Los Angeles-based producer quickly brings back the heat with a chaotic and even filthier second drop. Producing a track perfect for festivals and concert halls, Rickyxsan is surely on his way to big things.

Borgore teams up with Bella Thorne for saucy ‘Salad Dressing’

This post was originally published on this site

Bella Thorne loves EDM. In fact, (fake) Diplo has gone so far as to joke on Twitter that the late Disney Channel star has made him regret inventing the genre.

It was only a matter of time before Thorne linked up with EDM’s head-honchos, and who better than the father of all that is crude and lewd to follow up her Prince Fox collaboration than the lewd-king — Borgore himself.

As expected, “Salad Dressing” is a crude, provocative number. “I don’t know if you mind,” the track begins, “But would you like the sauce in the salad? Or the sauce on the side?” To which Thorne answers, “I don’t care, you can put it anywhere.”

And while one user on Reddit has gone on to describe the collaboration as “…2010 dubstep f*ccboi music,” the tune’s undoubtedly a catchy number, only to be left in ambiguity for its listener to interpret.

Stream The Russ Liquid Test’s genre-bending 7-track ‘World Gone Crazy’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

The Russ Liquid Test‘s future-oriented funk and jazz stylings continues to gain momentum across the live jamtronica scene. The New Orleans-based trio — known for their clean fusion of live instrumentation, psychedelic visuals, and digital sound design — have just capped off a mind-blowing Suwannee Hulaween performance as one of the last stops along their extensive fall tour.

On Nov. 3, The Russ Liquid Test released their seven-track World Gone Crazy EP following a string of teased singles off the record, “Rise,” “World Gone Crazy,” and “Communication Breakdown.” The full EP instrumentation consists of live drums, guitar, brass, keys, and a number of digital softwares, resulting in a hybrid style typically unfrequented in dance music. As such, World Gone Crazy comes as a landmark release for the three-piece band, highlighting their evolution over recent years both on stage and in-studio.

From the funky, free lead-in track, “OMOP,” to the light-hearted vigor of the closing track, “Ruckus,” the entire EP is as fun and dynamic as it is robust, compelling, and vitally urgent. A stand-out track on the EP is “World Gone Crazy,” featuring Chicago-based rapper ProbCause, for how it perfectly encapsulates the overall ethos of the album with undeniable energy and a potent political commentary that is fitting for the current historical moment.

A diverse project comprised of hip-hop, liquid drum and bass, funk, and downtempo, The Russ Liquid Test’s World Gone Crazy EP remains true to the sound they’ve long-cultivated while proving their versatility knows no generic bounds.
