To some Millennials, “SouthSide” might stir nostalgia around the mellow 2004 classic with Lloyd and Ashanti. DJ Snake and Eptic have arrived to take the “SouthSide” reigns, however, and what they’ve done is created a piece that is catastrophically satisfying for those who enjoy a heavy dose of bass in their musical palette. The tune features sinister note progressions and dramatic builds, only to drop into an utter explosion of robotic sound effects and bass that is designed to blow brains out. It’s violent, headbang-worthy, and primed to become a festival season anthem.

“SouthSide” comes just a week after DJ Snake’s last effort on his label First Classe—a sleek, midtempo collaboration with Plastic Toy. The French superstar has had a promising 2019 so far, producing hits with Tyga and G-Eazy while earning yet another landmark achievement with “Taki Taki” earning one billion streams in just four months.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Gryffin pairs up with the lovely Iselin, and takes listeners on an emotional journey through “Just For A Moment.”

Hardwell combines moving piano, Wildstylez and hardstyle on his latest, “Shine A Light.”

Dutch producer Maurice West brings everyone to the dance floor with this big room heater.

Guitar riffs swirl as clocks tick, and then piano is introduced as powerful sweeps take you into Nicky Romero‘s epic synth-filled drop.

Bouncy synths, poppy percussion and catchy vocals dazzle Two Friends‘ track, “Bandaid.”

Said The Sky, Dabin and Linn pull on the heartstrings as they transcend listeners into a musical wonderland.

Mako makes magic in “Murder,” with powerful bass and elegant piano that entices from beginning to end.

Tom Budin gets grimy with his remix of JaySounds & Kwame’s “Legacy.”

White Panda and Loote make a song so effortlessly playful that replaying it just once won’t be enough.

Imad Royal shows his dark side with Elliphant on their intricate and interesting track full of gun sounds and chilling whispers.

MEMBA adds another chapter to their EP with the second release, “Keep It Up.”

LMBO creates a cinematic beauty by combining experimental elements along with chill trap ones in their Bronze Whale remix.

Eptic shows up in true Eptic fashion and drops a four-track EP that’s so not for the faint of heart.

High hats dance and Nicole Dash Jones sings as KC Lights builds a groovy house tune around them, perfectly complementing every note.

Squired releases a stutter-studded track engraved with hot rap verses and arrangement from the young artist himself.

Lloyd Macey delivers a late-night house tune with a kick that leaves you coming back for seconds.

Kidswaste releases an atmospheric and instrumental beauty under his alias Beauvois.

Liveliness radiates from Cazzette and Parson James through deep plucks and excellent melodies on “Missing You.”

If life is a highway, then hit the ground running with Conro on his latest jazzy summer tune, “Fired Up,” out now on Monstercat.

Love at first sight might not be a thing, but love at first Win & Woo and Cosmos and Creature sure could be on their horn-filled collaboration, “Beam Me Up.”

Hewan stuns from her compelling voice, to the captivating music that surrounds it on “Strip For Me.”

Aylen lets loose on “Jaws,” as he slings out energetic synths and percussion so groovy everybody will be moving.

Khalid received remixes for “Love Lies,” and Rad Hatter puts a dark spin on it with rolling bass and drops so fat, one might forget for good what the original once sounded like.

Zomboy and Eptic join forces on snarling new collaboration ‘Bop It’

This post was originally published on this site

Don’t let the track’s name fool you, “Bop It” sounds nothing like the commands of the familiar handheld headache device most might be picturing. Rather, it’s a new joint product from dubstep dons Zomboy and Eptic, so off the bat, one can expect loud, aggressive mayhem to come from two of the top bass producers out there. And of course, both of them deliver in top form on “Bop It.” Coming together for Never Say Die Records’ fifth label showcase compilation, Eptic joins the label head on a growling bass monster designed to level festival crowds with thrashing head banging appeal. Complete with battering drum arrangements, scalding lasers, and barking metallic breaks, Zomboy and Eptic deliver a deafening one-two punch with their new collaboration.
