As g-house garners momentum in today’s dance music scene, genre mainstays Sinden and BIJOU continue to thrill with each new release. For their latest track, they’ve joined forces on a feisty, bass-ridden collaboration: “Technique.”

“Technique” kicks off with a pounding bassline and an underlying mysterious vibe that grows as the track progresses. A dark melody emerges from the introductory bassline, ushering in intense vocals that carry throughout the track. With these elements and builds that ebb and flow throughout the five-minute track, the two powerhouses demonstrate their prowess in today’s bass house scene.

Insomniac has officially followed through on its promise that Electric Daisy Carnival would be expanding its range of events and productions to Asia in 2018, as the company just announced its inaugural EDC China is set to debut in Shanghai April 29 – 30.

“To bring EDC halfway around the world is a milestone for our entire Insomniac family,” Insomniac’s founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella said in a press release.

“China marks EDC’s sixth international location, and I’m excited to connect and create beautiful new moments with the country’s passionate and ever-growing dance music community.”

EDC’s China appearance is further proof of dance music’s global reign, far from the festival’s humble beginnings as a small crowd of dance music lovers in 1997 Los Angeles.

Dustycloud – Those Nights

This post was originally published on this site

Tom Roy, aka Dustycloud, is sending wall-crumbling future house vibrations all the way across the pond to Insomniac headquarters. The Parisian DJ and producer has risen to prominence over the last year with guest mixes on NEST HQ and Dr. Fresch‘s Prescription podcast. Back in October, Roy added to his successes a bass-laden collaboration with Drezo called “House.”

Roy’s newest single, which Insomniac features as their track of the day, sees the producer further hone in on his ability to craft grungy bass lines with the structural components of a traditional house track. As future and G-house continue to infiltrate dance music, Dustycloud will be a name to keep on the radar.
