Ghastly drops his hardest track of the year, fittingly titled ‘This Song Scares People’Ghastly2017

Earlier this year, Ghastly dropped his 13 track debut album titled The Mystifying Oracle, and apparently he’s kept the pedal to the floor in the studio since. Ghastly back again new track, and it might just be his hardest release of the year. The title of the new original cut, aptly dubbed, “This Song Scares People,” is certainly a worthy name for the ominous new tune. The LA-based artist is known for his hard-hitting sonic style, but this track will add an even heavier dynamic to his live sets with its frenzied bass assault.

Ghastly — known equally for his dark aesthetic as he for his complex, multi-layered set list weapons, often capped by menacing synthwork and stirring vocal accents, falls right on brand with “This Song Scares People.” And based on the new track’s title alone, this one is certainly not a listen for the faint of heart.

HARD Summer 2018 has come and gone — the festival’s first year without founder of the HARD brand Gary Richards (a.k.a. Destructo) at the helm — and all seemed to go as planned. Recruiting some of today’s top talent in house, future bass, dubstep, and hip-hop, the weekend featured some powerhouse back-to-back sets from Dillon Francis & Diplo, Zeds Dead & Jauz, and A-Trak & Baauer. Travis Scott celebrated the release of his new album, Astroworld, and Mija dropped another set that completely embodies her “Fk A Genre” mantra.

With more sets from Marshmello, Ghastly, Louis the Child, and others, this weekend marked the beginning of a new chapter for the HARD organization. Check out some of the top sets of the weekend below.

Marshmello launches gaming series, live from his Mello Cave every FridayMaresdefault

Marshmello has become widely know for his vibrant music that bounces with his signature saw bass and catchy melodies, but there is more to the man behind this mask.

In the past months, Marshmello has been flaunting his talents outside of music whether it be in the form of a cooking show or teaming up with Fortnite masters such as Ninja. With more and more celebrities joining in the gaming scene, Marshmello now decides to create his own show where he will play a slew of games in his Mello Cave with other celebrities and gamers alike.

He will host a new episode every Friday on his YouTube channel, and in the preview below teases episodes of Rock Band with Jauz, Slushii and Ghastly, to FIFA, and even some Grand Theft Auto.

NGHTMRE previews new collaboration with The Chainsmokers

This post was originally published on this site

NGHTMRE has had a stream of high-profile collaborations in the past year with the likes of Dillon Francis and Ghastly, proving there’s no stopping him. The LA-based producer played a collaboration he has coming out with The Chainsmokers during his EDC Las Vegas set. The track showcases a different direction for both NGHTMRE and The Chainsmokers, with Drew Taggart‘s vocals falling into a dirty drop. The Chainsmokers have been leaning pop as of late, while NGHTMRE is known for his kicking bass drops.

No information has been released about the track name or release date, but fans attending an upcoming Chainsmokers or NGHTMRE show can expect to hear it played. Fans can listen to the new track starting at 14:35 of NGHTMRE’s set on Mixcloud.

Ghastly drops his debut album and it was worth the wait

This post was originally published on this site

Ghastly fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of his debut full-length album, and now the wait is over. Titled The Mystifying Oracle, the twelve track compilation is full of the artist’s signature bass funk style with a few surprises placed throughout.

Tracks that were released before the full album release are “Black Mamba,” “Fake U Out,” “Lemme See U” with Crankdat, “LSD,” and the original version of “Geisha.” Other highlights of the album include rap infused “Everybody” featuring Sam King and “I’ll Wait” which has been transformed from its original version with Shaylen‘s vocal mix.

In celebration of his final single release with Crankdat off of the album “Lemme See U,” DA played “Do it or don’t do it?” with both artists, cementing Ghastly’s odd charm with his array of absolutely random answers.

Crankdat and Ghastly play ‘Do it or Don’t do it’ in honor of their new single, ‘Lemme See U’

This post was originally published on this site

Ghastly and Crankdat teamed up for a new collaboration that merges the most dynamic aspects of both artists’ production capabilities in the form of “Lemme See U.” Crankdat has been teasing a roster of star-studded collaborations lately, including a track with Marshmello that is set to come out in the near future. “Lemme See U” is a stellar start of these collaborations with its mainstage-friendly bass drop. Meanwhile Ghastly is set to release a full album next week.

In “Lemme See U,” Ghastly’s funky bass compliments Crankdat’s progressive energy with synthesized vocals weaving in and out of the chords to propel the track forward. “Lemme See U Do It” is the chorus of the track, so naturally we tested each producer with a game of “Do it or Don’t do it?”

We wanted to test how bold each producer really is, and their responses were true to form. Crankdat proved his thoughtfulness and logic. Meanwhile, Ghastly proves he continues to be an outside of the box thinker, and the total weirdo we have learned to love.

1. Eat gas station sushi?

Crankdat: DON’T do it… i’m not even a sushi guy

Ghastly: Of course, only a real man is brave enough and intelligent enough to appreciate the profound cooking and craftsmanship within the distinct kitchen of 7/11

2. If you pull a lever- you save five people but kill one.

Crankdat: What’s the alternative? I’d say don’t do it… but if all 6 would die… quick maths…….

Ghastly: I would just laser beam them all myself with my laser beam eyes

3. Streak through a festival crowd.

Crankdat: Pfft, do it.

Ghastly: I would streak through a festival crowd, but I wouldn’t want to anyone to know the secret about my 4th nipple

4. Ranch on Pizza?

Crankdat: DO IT ALL DAY EVERY DAY

Ghastly: It is impossible to run an entire ranch on a pizza, this is not logical, you need at least 1 acre

5. Tell your friend their new haircut looks terrible?

Crankdat: DO IT… not a real friend if you let that shit slide….

Ghastly: Yes, friends always tell each other they look terrible, that is what friends are for.

6. Get a drink with your most recent ex?

Crankdat: thats a hard DON’T do it….

Ghastly: Only if she buys it.

7. If you wear a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat for four months straight while on a European tour, you get a $2 mil bonus

Crankdat:  yikes…… I’d probably say do it… but no photo or video.. and only travel in non-english speaking european countries… lol

Ghastly: Change the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat to a ‘Rosie O’Donnell with a fidget spinner in her vagina’ hat, and you got a deal

8. Revive an old pet through killing a current one

Crankdat: Well my last pet was a goldfish and my current pet is a cat… I doubt the fish would sleep on my feet so don’t do it

Ghastly:  If Charles bites me on the face again then yes.

9. Pee in the shower

Crankdat: ………doit…

Ghastly: I pee in the shower everyday, if you don’t then you don’t care about the environment and your personality is likely in the shape of a square

10. Eat the Holy Ship Pizza

Crankdat: I mean i did it…

Ghastly: Always eat holy ship pizza, whether it is preloved or postloved.

11. Book the headlining slot for Fyre Festival 2018

Crankdat: hahahahahaha no jail time for me.. don’t do it

Ghastly: I hear it’s going to be bigger and better than ever this year, and NSYNC is doing a b2b w Cardi B so yes of course

Ghastly drops new bass house track, ‘Black Mamba’

This post was originally published on this site

Ghastly just announced his first headlining tour, and in honor of that achievement, he dropped new bass house track, “Black Mamba.” Like most of his releases, each part of the track has its own theme, which all tie together with a massive bassline. The track never relents its fast pace, making it perfect for a hectic festival set.

It is no surprise Ghastly is dropping this snake themed track, given he has multiple snakes as pets of his own. Those who connect with “Black Mamba” can see Ghastly perform it live on tour.
