LISTEN: Malaa goes funkier than ever before in his newest track, “Paris 96”’

This post was originally published on this site

Made famous for his ominous, sinister beats layered over staggering waves of earth-shattering bass, Malaa‘s bruising signature sound has yielded hits such as his house anthem “Bylina,” his eerie piece “Contagious,” and his highly-publicized Tchami collaboration, “Prophecy.” His style is instantly recognizable, as the iconoclast has strayed away from the expected, revolutionizing the future house genre with his distinct production techniques.

In his latest original, Malaa has dramatically pushed the envelope in the process of creating a sound unlike anything we’ve heard from the mysterious producer, and the results are simply stunning. Titled “Paris 96′,” Malaa completely changes it up with a groovy bass line, jazzy, soulful vocal samples, and a funked out melody that is straight out of the 60’s. “Pairs 96′” fuses dazzling vintage funk with striking deep vibes, generating a track that showcases a new era for the renegade artist. In a world where many musicians play it safe, Malaa’s fearless experimentation is wonderfully refreshing.

Mau5trap unveils special ‘Ten Year Anniversary’ compilation

Today, July 24, the festivities continue with the release of its special Ten Year Anniversary compilation.

Zeds Dead and Illenium release ferocious collaboration, ‘Where The Wild Things Are’

This post was originally published on this site

Time and again, Zeds Dead have shown that they aren’t tethered to the razor-sharp dubstep which first gained them renown. While the Canadian duo of DC and Hooks have by no means abandoned their heavier inclinations, they’ve indicated a taste for featuring melodic dance music in both their productions and their sets over the past several years.

Given this semi-recent trend, one might expect that Zeds Dead would opt to put forth something of this more soothing ilk when collaborating with future bass savant Illenium. And, though there are indeed a number of mellifluous moments in “Where The Wild Things Are,” the duo’s new production with the Denver-based producer is anything but sedate.

Debuted at Zeds Dead’s Red Rocks show earlier this month, the single pits hauntingly sultry vocals and melodic synth pads against a cacophony of abrasive bass patterns which rival the ferocity of some of the duo’s most formidable tracks. Now available via Deadbeats, “Where The Wild Things Are” proves that Zeds Dead have no intention of straying away from high-octane bass music, and that Illenium possesses quite a knack for the genre as well.

Stream Opiuo’s bass-infused remix of GRiZ’s ‘PS GFY’

This post was originally published on this site

GRiZ shows no signs of slowing his “good times” roll anytime soon. Coming off his announcement of the Good Will Continue tour, which will feature two full nights of the first-ever GRiZ live band experience at Red Rocks, the Boulder-based future funk master has recently blacked out his socials to focus on rinsing his next album.

In honor of one such feat, GRiZ has enlisted New Zealand-born bass music producer, Opiuo, for a luminous funk-fueled remix of his original collaborative effort with Cherub, “PS GFY,” which premiered on This Song Is Sick. The soulful facelift is astute, clean, and exciting, featuring distorted vocals, strong bass lines and heavy brass elements; not to mention, the high energy warbly synth patterns that make up Opiuo’s oddly unique production style.

The single comes ahead of the GRiZ’s impending Good Will Continue remix album. The star-studded, 13-track release includes an exceptionally diverse range of talent, with treatments from Boogie T.Jenaux,  AC Slater, Tommy Trash, and the inimitable Barclay Crenshaw.

The album is set for an August 18 release. View the full tracklist below and GRiZ’s full list of fall 2017 tour stops here.

Dimension drops a drum & bass edit of Eric Prydz’s “Generate”

This post was originally published on this site

There is no denying Dimension’s prowess as a quality Drum & Bass producer. That talented Englishman is currently a signee on MTA Recordings, and is no stranger to high profile remixes – having previously reworked Deadmau5’s classic single ‘Strobe,’ and Nero’s ‘Two Minds.’

His latest creation is a fantastic rework of Eric Prydz’s “Generate.” As is the case with remixing any hit single, preserving the soul of the original plays a critical role in determining the new version’s reception. Luckily, Dimension has absolutely nailed it with his tasteful edit, keeping the main melody and vocal samples virtually untouched, while adding in crisp percussion and deep bass lines- making for a gorgeous re-imagination of a modern dance classic.

This post was originally published on this site

As one of the genre’s most exciting new talents, Unlike Pluto has made a name for himself with a unique style that blends big brass elements with soaring melodies and blistering bass lines. The young producer stays true to form on his latest release, a homage to one of the most anthemic hits of the late 90s, TLC’s “No Scrubs.” Enlisting frequent collaborator Joanna Jones for vocal duties, Pluto’s spin on the empowering anthem turns the timeless hit into a jazz-influenced cover that modernizes without damaging the original’s message —

Oliver Huntemann – Rotlicht (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Oliver Huntemann is a wizard when it comes to creating stripped-down, yet powerful techno. Arrangement is key for the Hamburg native, and each new record he creates succeeds in its mission to entrance listeners.

He takes things in a sinister direction with “Rotlicht,” where deep, pounding kicks complement an array of tense synth layers. Post-break, the piece explodes into heavy techno, still minimal, yet constructed in a way that provides ultimate impact. Raxon also beefs up the original as the single’s official remixer.

“Rotlicht” is the first single off Huntemann’s forthcoming album Propaganda, to be released in October on his Senso Sounds imprint. Judging by the track’s quality, the album will likely prove Huntemann’s ability to take listeners on a proper journey through a long-player medium.

Luttrell explores his musical depth in ‘Generate’ [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site

San Francisco-based Luttrell is a relatively new member of the Anjunadeep family, but his ability to fashion entrancing, fell-good progressive house has already stood out since the release of his debut single on the label, “Away.” Having released his Need You EP and a string of remixes and original pieces since, the producer returns with an extended body of work that once more offers a deeper look at his musical mind.

Generate sees Luttrell exploring various shades of his genre of choice, beginning on a swift, energized note with its title track. After taking the listener through fields of airy synthesizers and clever vocal edits, he slows things down in the dreamy “Float,” which flows through retro-inspired melodic bursts and conjures summery imagery while listening.

“Walking Dream” takes things off 4/4 for a bit and into the world of breaks – Luttrell artfully navigates this soundscape with cheery synth progressions and subtle bass. “Daylight” ends the EP on a lush note with enticing layers of percussion and atmospheric strings playing a central role.
