Get down with Oliver Tree and Whethan’s new joint ‘Movement’

This post was originally published on this site

In a day when memes can become rappers — where the Bhad Bhabies and Big Shaqs of the internet are out here scoring major record deals (honorable mention, Mason Ramsey) — somehow living meme incarnate Oliver Tree is actually flipping the already wild idea on its head. Although signed to a major label himself, he’s warping indie-rap into something completely new, and ultra-contemporary, and considering the rhymer’s hilarious aesthetic, it’s ironically working, really well. Putting on his own blend of tenacious electro-punk/hip-hop, his latest,”Movement,” falls right in line, with a lo-fi gut-punch anchored around Tree’s fearlessly swaggering versework.

The Whethan-produced track lays down a plucking bass line with the beat building into a thundering glitch-hop backdrop on which the Alien Boy wunderkind delivers his latest bars. Proving to be a formidable pairing with Whethan once again following “Enemy,” Oliver Tree adds another rinse-worthy hybrid cut to his arsenal with “Movement.”

Dr. Fresch releases sweltering first single ‘Fire’ from upcoming EP

This post was originally published on this site

Self-proclaimed “future-ghetto” producer, Dr. Fresch has released “Fire,” the first track off his forthcoming EP, No Introduction, set for release through Insomniac Records. The producer, real name Tony Fresch, known for his vibrant, ever-changing hair colors and thick-framed glasses, is the creator of the popular mix series, The Prescription, which has featured the likes of Louis The Child, Dustycloud, and Dom Dolla.

“Fire,” in Fresch’s usual fashion, is a volatile, bass heavy track, pledging allegiance to no specific genre, as it bares both house and mid-tempo electro overtones. While “Fire”‘s intricate buildups are engulfed in sweet-sounding bell synths and atmospheric melodies, the drop scorches the listener in sinister reverb and unrelenting bass lines.

 

Wolfgang Gartner delivers a smooth electro ride on latest original, ‘Ching Ching’

This post was originally published on this site

It’s no secret that Wolfgang Gartner has a real soft spot for top-notch pop productions, despite his legendary penchant for electro house excellence. He’s been vocal about pop’s innovations and impressions on dance music and vice versa, and now as he continues to build momentum in what seems to be the next chapter in his comeback, we’re finding the complextro don adding some considerable pop flair to his latest original, “Ching Ching.” The new track comes fresh off the heels of Gartner’s recent “Banshee” alongside k?d, which found the seasoned beatsmith broadcasting in rare form, perhaps his best work since the contents of Weekend In America. 

“Ching Ching” rides a similar wave, and while it leans away from battering club fare and more towards a lyrical, melodic house appeal, the new track follows up on “Banshee” as another infectious dance hit, and one of Wolfgang’s strongest offerings in recent memory. We’re seeing the resurgence of Wolfgang with his new work, and on his latest, as he blurs the line between pop and electro with veteran finesse.

Old school meets new school as Wolfgang Gartner and k?d join forces on ‘Banshee’

Complextro house isn’t dead — not as long as Wolfgang Gartner is around. The veteran producer’s name is synonymous with the complextro movement that sparked around a decade ago and helped boost EDM into the mainstream. While Wolfgang’s style has evolved considerably since the “Space Junk” days, young, fresh talent like k?d seem to be keeping him young on their new joint effort “Banshee.” Widely considered to be one of the sharpest prospects on the rise, k?d wraps his fluid production acumen around Wolfgang’s penchant for ultra-intricate, rousingly dramatic dance compositions.

“Banshee” packs in grainy, distorted piano chords and snappy percussive builds before breaking out into high-octane sonic mayhem. It’s aggressive yet calculated, vintage and futuristic all at once, and ultimately a flawlessly nostalgic return to the beloved Wolfgang Gartner electro of yesteryear, capped by a menacing contemporary flair with the addition of k?d’s forward-thinking production method.

Historically more of a lone wolf, Gartner has famously collaborated with deadmau5 and Skrillex on two of his canon’s brightest hallmarks, “Animal Rights” and “Devil’s Den” respectively. One listen through, and we can safely say “Banshee” is likely to join those ranks in time too.

 

Charlotte Gainsbourg – A-Ring O’Roses (SebastiAn On The Beat Remix)

SebastiAn Charlotte Gainsbourg Remix

French electro house stalwart Sebastian Akchoté-Bozovic — better known simply as SebastiAn — never seems to take his foot off the gas. The Ed Banger icon’s discography has gravitated towards cult acclaim over the last decade and, while his prominence isn’t quite as forthright as French colleagues Justice or Busy P, his releases are always a welcome dive into authentic French house.

Now, Bozovic is here to quench our French thirst once again with his latest release of Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s seminal track “A-Ring O’Roses.” Toned down, stripped to minimalism, and subsequently re-adorned with the dressings of French synths that veer towards heady futurism, the remix is a melodic build culminating in a melancholic tug.

Note the capital A.

 

 

Aaro – Indestructible

This post was originally published on this site

Up and coming Finnish wunderkind Aaro is showing early promise with a new original release landing via European electro imprint Tasty. “Indestructible” takes evident influence from early works by Porter Robinson and Madeon and gives them a contemporary spin with the same keen, methodical production approach. The young beatmaker has clear potential, and his battering new setlist jump starter “Indestructible” undoubtedly shows off firmly planted roots in intricately designed complextro house.

Gritty and distorted while altogether melodic and anthemic, Aaro’s delivers a high octane burst of energy that, half a decade ago would have been punishing sprawling festival crowds. Complextro house is waiting for it’s new champion, and fresh, emerging talent like Aaro have the potential to repopularize the genre in a few short years.

The Bloody Beetroots announce long-awaited new LP ‘The Great Electronic Swindle’

This post was originally published on this site

Masked mayhem maker and electro punk pioneer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo has officially announced the release of the Bloody Beetroots‘ long-awaited third studio album, The Great Electronic Swindle. The new record will feature a slew of musical talent from outside of the electronic music spectrum, ranging from Aussie rockers JET to Anders Friden of In Flames to most recently, self-proclaimed EDM hater Perry Farrell on the album’s new single “Pirates, Punks, and Politics” released today with the album’s announcement.

Rifo, who is celebrating his masked moniker’s tenth anniversary in 2017, has always maintained a renegade association with electronic music, and his new album, loaded with collaborations, is expected to continue the artistic progression of the Bloody Beetroots’ rebellious relationship with dance music. Regarding the record’s unapologetic title, Rifo explains,

“The title is a tribute to the Sex Pistols and the film ‘The Great Rock and Roll Swindle’ directed by Julian Temple.  It was a sign of the end of an era. The end of Punk.  I want to reclaim that for electronic music because the business squeezed the genre so much that they delivered the end of electronic music itself.  We are living in a great electronic swindle.”

The Great Electronic Swindle is due October 20 via Canadian imprint Last Gang. Stream the Bloody Beetroot’s latest, “Pirates, Punks, and Politics” here.
