Graves takes ownership of blistering ID dropped by RL Grimes on tourGraves Live From His Facebook

“Road testing” is named as such for good reason; after all, one might argue that there is no better place to try out new music than to the crowds on tour. RL Grime has been testing an abundance of new music throughout his tours, and it looks like a particular new ID by Graves is going to be a hit. The rising producer shared a freshly made video of RL giving the record a spin in a packed venue, and the crowd appeared to enjoy every moment. The snippet showed off a tense build followed by a wild, gut-punching drop that fit its big room setting nicely.

Graves has yet to share more information on the the record or its release. The artist also has a few more dates in Washington DC, Alberta, and Ohio, where fans could listen for the ID from the artist himself.

New Swedish House Mafia is on its way—watch the trio drop new ID in StockholmSwedish House Mafia Press Shot

Following months of speculation, bread crumb announcements, and extreme anticipation among the global dance community, Swedish House Mafia finally kicked off their official reunion in their breeding grounds of Stockholm. They played to a sold-out stadium, with some superfans even filming the whole performance, in addition to unveiling a brand new photographic exhibit to coincide with the tour kick-off.

The trio naturally played an array of classics that guests had been yearning to hear since they disbanded in 2013. Beyond that, however, they subtly announced their return to the studio as well with a few choice IDs sprinkled in. “Underneath It All” is one of the working titles that surfaced following the performance, which was thankfully caught on video by a different audience member. True to form, the ID is the epitome of the euphoric, big room house sound that Swedish House Mafia more-or-less shaped and pioneered when first breaking out in the late aughts and early 2010s. It’s filled with touching vocals, saw synths, and sweeping progressions that make for proper “hands in the air” moments.

Keep close watch on this iconic outfit as more information is inevitably unveiled.

Big Beat Records begins teasing mysterious compilation album—sounds like new music from Skrillex, Ekali, and more could be on the wayEkali Awakening Radio Mi 001

Big Beat Records has something interesting under the hood, though what exactly the label is rolling out, as of now, remains a mystery. The imprint, which hosts artists like SkrillexEkali, Whethan, Knife Party, and more, posted 15 short, enigmatic snippets to SoundCloud on March 25, captioned simply with a release date of April 11. Without much more to go on, a quick dive into the audio teasers reveals that the impending release is likely a compilation from a group of artists—a fact that Big Beat confirmed in a statement to Dancing Astronaut.

The tracklist spans a wide variety of genres, all with a heavy bass theme, from pumping bass house to echoing big room trap. The mysterious, yet-to-be-revealed compilation sounds like it could include contributions from OWSLA labelmates—in fact, the third track teased already appears in Ekali’s Awakening Mix Vol. 6Though largely unsubstantiated and merely speculation as of now, the EP’s first official release is due on March 29, and a full tracklist is expected to land soon as well. The nameless compilation definitely packs some heavy handed punches, and it’ll likely be well worth the wait come April 11. In the meantime, listen below, guess for yourself, and let us know what you come up with.

Lollapalooza soundtracks summer teaser with new Flume ID [Watch]Flume Michael Drummond

Flume‘s surprise mixtape, Hi, This is Flumeis set to land any minute now, and as fans eagerly await the Aussie beat guru’s highly anticipated return, the good news just keeps pouring in. The Skin producer was just announced as a headliner at Lollapalooza this summer, signaling a huge swell in momentum for the beloved electronic experimenter. To hype the Chicago iteration of the festival this summer, Lollapalooza has dropped off a short teaser announcing ticket sales, featuring a brand new, yet-to-be identified cut from Flume.

The “Summer is Coming” trailer, which might even succeed in plugging Flume’s return more than the actual festival, features clips of the iconic summer gathering at Grant Park, soundtracked by the delightfully off-kilter clinks and clicks that only Harley Streten can do so well. Chopped vocals and rubbery percussive breaks come together with a charming, cinematic appeal in the new ID, and if the nameless track is any indicator of the impending mixtape Flume has promised, everyone is in for quite the treat.

Knife Party debut new ‘Ghost Town’ demo on ‘Knifecast’ podcastKnife Party Live

Knife Party, kicked off their very first episode of their progressively developing “Knifecast” podcast with the debut of a brand new track that has yet to be titled. Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen described the concept as a format that rests “halfway between a podcast and playing music.” The pair were adamant that they didn’t want to just produce a weekly mix, but rather a dynamic and engaging show that would feature guests, and on-air Q&A sessions featuring fan-submitted questions. Knife Party provided a memorable finale to their inaugural installment of “Knifecast” with their inclusion of a lengthy ID at the episode’s end, pointing to additional new material underway.

As episode eight of the series affirms, the previously shared ID did in fact foreshadow more unreleased material to come. In their latest episode, the Abandon Ship producers treat listeners to a first taste of a current work in progress by the name of “Ghost Town.” At once a glance back at classic Knife Party sound, intertwined with more modern electronic sonic influence, “Ghost Town” foregrounds Swire’s distinctive vocals atop electro-charged synth arrangements. Knife Party’s plans for the release currently remain unclear, but will certainly come into sharper focus with the ensuing episodes of “Knifecast.”

Attendees of deadmau5‘s November 8 show in Berlin were in for a treat.

The mau5trap head honcho used the Verti Music Hall performance to crowd-test some new music, which one Reddit user captured to share with the world. The ID begins slowly, building anticipation with a warm, ethereal melody before exploding abruptly into a bright burst of synths. Backed by a dramatic progressive beat, this ID is purely mau5 in every way.

Though deadmau5 has been using the past several weeks to focus on his mental well-being, he promised fans he’d be in attendance at his Europe shows this month, which include performances in Dublin, Edinburgh, London, and Bristol in the coming days.

Ekali road tests explosive Skrillex trap ID [Watch]Ekali Teases Skrille Trap Id

Skrillex hype fever is in full swing, and the prescription is more Skrillex hype. Thankfully, OWSLA label mate Ekali came through by unleashing a rumored Skrillex ID during Sunday’s tour stop on his Crystal Eyes tour. The unreleased trap heater called to mind past trap anthems from the producer like the “Purple Lamborghini,” with signature growls and blaring horn stabs filling out a slapping drop.

Reddit user u/Samwise78 caught a quick clip of the track’s build and drop while Ekali’s crowd basked in the ID. The song is rumored to feature vocals from fast-rising vocalist Dounia, who Skrillex was pictured with this summer. Music fans have eagerly awaited teasers of what to expect from the bass legend’s much anticipated new album, and if this and his upcoming collab with JOYRYDE are any indicator, it’s going to pack some serious heat.

Knife Party listeners have an opportunity to become better “Internet Friends” with the momentous dubstep duo via “Knifecast,” a radio show-style podcast that gathers Knife Party constituents Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen behind the mic to talk a variety of topics, and as “Knifecast” continues to roll out episodes, to presumably share news about forthcoming releases. Knife Party kicked off the show’s live debut on September 20. Swire and McGrillen introduced the “Knifecast” concept as one that rests “halfway between a podcast and playing music” and were adamant that they didn’t want to just produce a weekly mix. Knife Party additionally plans to host guests, and on-air Q&A sessions featuring fan-submitted questions as “Knifecast” further develops.

Knife Party provided a memorable finale to their inaugural installment of “Knifecast” with their inclusion of a lengthy ID at the episode’s end. A dub-heavy number that wasn’t wanting for wubs, the ID is a heady combination of gritty vocal overlays and wallops of bass. Technical elements aside, the ID indicates that new Knife Party music could be on its way very soon, and “Knifecast” appears to be the primary vehicle of any ensuing new material’s debut.
