LA Riots release ‘House Philosophy / Ladies Man’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

Depicted in the form of their new, two-piece release House Philosophy / Ladies Man EP off Insomniac in / rotation Records, LA Riots are fixing up a riotous new direction in their decade-long career as a formidable dance music duo. Entering the late 2000 music scene with a subversive concoction of indie rock, electro, and hip-hop music, LA Riots’ sound provided instantly infectious accessibility that catered to both underground and mainstream crowds. Their meteoric rise eventually led to them to share stages with notable electro acts like The Crystal Method and MSTRKRFT, alongside a number of other high-level festival appearances such as Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, and Coachella.

Now, the West Coast mainstays are changing things up with their most recent output in the form of two original tracks that blend into a more tech house-centric realm. The first single, “House Philosophy,” is a cavort deep house cruiser, galavanting through a union of rumbling bass beats and hard-hitting kicks. As for “Ladies Man,” the track enlivens a bouncy, high-spirited tenor that easily translates into a dancefloor thriller.

With more original music on the way, this new expansion in their musical catalog is a living testament to LA Riots’ explorative vitality, a characteristical energy that has continued to captivate their global fanbase since the beginning.

Bonnie X Clyde team up with Purge for riveting future bass track ‘Torn’

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based duo Bonnie X Clyde convey an emotional message with their latest release, “Torn.” The duo has been on a roll with their signature “vocal bass” sound, as their most successful track to date, “Bass Jam,” sat at #1 on the Sirius XM BPM “Beats of the Week” chart for five weeks straight. They’ve also had their music featured in some of Insomniac’s official festival after-movies, such as EDC and Nocturnal Wonderland. In describing the track, which is a collaboration with OWSLA-supported duo Purge, Bonnie X Clyde mentioned how it’s “about expressing your true, raw feelings and coming to terms with them…and understanding it’s ok to need help and to not be ok all the time.”

“Torn” is cathartic, but also easy to jam-out to, kicking off with some edgy, elongated bass that gives leeway to Bonnie’s dreamy vocals and builds up into a hard-hitting drop that includes a mix of high-pitched lead synths, an ecstatic drum beat, and vocal samples. It sounds almost too perfect for any long-night-drive soundtrack.

Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo team up on ‘Nothing Better’

This post was originally published on this site

Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo‘s “Nothing Better,” an Insomniac Records release, is an uplifting progressive house track filled with dance-oriented, 1990’s house textures. The song features soulful, intertwining vocals layered over low, arresting piano chords before breaking into a head-bobbing bassline.

“Nothing Better” is certainly not the duo’s first joint effort—it succeeds their bass house hit, “The Calling,” and tthe rippling garage house track “Piano Hand,” both released in 2015. Yet again, the household names successfully wed their seemingly contending tones. Lake’s high-energy, effervescent nature is intuitively complemented by Lorenzo’s shadowy, and jarring ambiance.

“Soft” is not a word that exists in Julian Jeweil’s musical vocabulary.
