Effin flips Chris Lake’s ‘I Want You’ [Stream]

Effin flips Chris Lake’s ‘I Want You’ [Stream]Effin

Those familiar with LA’s Icon Collective know that its alumni have made serious noise in the world of dance music. Jauz, NGHTMRE, and Slander are just a few of the heavyweights who got their start at Icon. Another more understated notch in their roster is Effin, who recently executed an out-of-the-box remix of the Chris Lake classic, “I Want You.”

Lake is an unequivocal staple in the house music domain, and one of the driving leaders in the genre’s global ascension. But one of the reasons he has found such sweeping success is because his music taps into up-to-the-moment sounds and styles and packages them with more classic, subtle nuance. In his explosive rendition, Effin took those subtleties and put them under his serrated microscope lens.

“I Want You” came out on OWSLA in 2017, and because the Skrillex-headed label features cross-genre categories throughout its prolific catalog, its identity pertains more to an all-encompassing energy from a collective vantage point. Effin harnessed the same energy Lake did for dancefloor cut and morphed it into a heavy-hitting bass tune.

Bass boss Jauz’s fledgling label Bite This! is coming out swinging with a new 3-track EP courtesy of 20 year old Russian phenom HYPRESSION. The “Cold Blood EP,” isn’t HYPRESSION’s first time in Jauz’s orbit, the pair collaborated in 2018 on “On Fire,” featured on Jauz’s album “The Wise and the Wicked.” This EP, his first original on Bite This!, is testament to the Russian’s production prowess and fearless style that is just as unforgiving as his mentor’s.

The lead off and title track, “Cold Blood” features Networth in the studio. The pair deliver a fast-paced tune that relentless drives forward with bass house beat structures before a barrage of slow-brewed trap sequences. HYPRESSION’s heritage is front and center on “Kitchen House.” The beat twists and tangles around Russian language samples, strange stabs and hollowed kicks. Next up is “I Just Wanna,” a track that stays true to its title and comes out guns blazing to wrap out a 3-track EP of the best and brightest bass house from an imprint that is leading the charge.

Wave goodbye to a trove of new, unreleased Jauz material that will never see the light of day

Wave goodbye to a trove of new, unreleased Jauz material that will never see the light of dayJauz Laptop Splice

Jauz has fallen victim to a hard drive crash that, according to the producer, has set him back by almost a year’s worth of unheard productions. In a recent social media post, The Wise and the Wicked producer revealed to fans he might have lost all the music he wrote in 2018 due to a technical mishap and no backup in place. Coming off of a year packed with non-stop touring, his debut full length album, as well as a steady stream of new music and Bite This releases, there’s no telling how much new, unreleased music Jauz had up his sleeve—perhaps now it’s best we don’t know as it might be gone forever.

Softening the blow with a positive perspective, Jauz is trying to look at the data crash as a new beginning, though a trove of work is likely now gone for good. Hopefully Jauz can manage to salvage some of last year’s work, but it seems that even in the year of our Lord 2019, this one is still a lesson that bears repeating: please, please, for God’s sake, back up your damn hard drives.  

Reliving Holy Ship! – Dancing Astronaut’s favorite moments from weekend 12.0

Reliving Holy Ship! – Dancing Astronaut’s favorite moments from weekend 12.0Holyship19c 031

Holy Ship! 12.0 was truly one for the books. With an even mixture of new and old faces across DJs and attendees, the vibe felt particularly special this time around, with talent from Mikey Lion to The Black Madonna all gushing about the magic that transpired over the weekend. The programming was as on point as the open, jubilant crowd, with a myriad of hidden stages, activity areas, and well-planned DJ sets happening all across the ship’s decks to create an even, enduring flow for all four days. Ultimately, the vibrant energy output by all involved—from the #shipfam, to the crew—made for yet another unforgettable voyage to the Bahamas.

While picking top moments of the festival feels akin to being forced to pick a favorite child, we masochistically put ourselves to the task and selected five highlights of 12.0. Without further ado…

 


JAUZ, Slander, and more at Bite This for an epic B2B

JAUZ went all out for his set at Bite This stage, playing more-or-less a producer’s set with mostly his own productions. While he’d already gotten off to a great start, onlookers got to witnessed something magical. Slander joined the bass house don on stage, followed by Holy Goof and Skepsis for what wound up being one of the most epic B2Bs of the weekend. We’re pretty sure people’s necks and feet still hurt from the chaos.


Claude VonStroke doing what he does best

Claude VonStroke played multiple times throughout Holy Ship! 12.0. Two moments were especially memorable, however. At the DIRTYBIRD private beach party, the label boss worked some serious wizardry behind the decks. This same atmosphere was present, and even more amplified, as the voyage came to a close and he took over the Theater stage with boisterous ease.  The energy in the crowd almost created a full-on second wind.

Ironically, NGHTMRE’s sailaway set was actually something out of a dream. Each tune he selected was an absolute knocker, be it his own original works, or numbers like Slander’s “Zombie,” which made the crowd completely lose it. Even more cerebral was that we got the chance to watch it from the 17th floor outside deck, which made the visuals completely surreal.


 JOYRYDE brings out the hidden gems

Those in attendance of JOYRYDE’s two Holy Ship! performances were lucky enough to catch a special preview of his upcoming album, Brave. The swiftly-rising producer pulled out a ton of IDs in each, treating his onlookers to a fresh, unheard of aural feast. Pairing with the tunes was both of his crowds’ energies. There was no stopping of the wild dancing that night, and snatching snippets of the night to look back on afterward.


Heroic substitution by Habstrakt

Sadness could be felt across the Shipfam when news arose of Audien missing the cruise due to sickness. That being said, the Holy Ship! crew had an excellent substitute up its sleeve: Habstrakt. The classically-trained Frenchman read his crowd with ease, throwing down some three of the weekend’s most noteworthy sets that, while wildly varied stylistically and through track selection, remained connected in their wildness. One might even say him coming on board was a blessing in disguise.

 

JAUZ transforms Marshmello and Bastille’s ‘Happier’ with somber new remix

Jauz has remixed Marshmello‘s hit collaboration with Bastille, “Happier,” almost entirely transforming the track, with the exception of Bastille’s vocal work. The Bite This helmer has made the track his own with a moody, albeit equally addicting, new take on Marshmello’s chart-topping hit.

Hushed vocals creep over chopping drums that serve as the backbone of the release. The original electronic notes are drawn out, with the tempo dramatically altered to suit JAUZ’s take on “Happier.” Bastille’s vocals are still a focal point for the track, with the emphasis on the opening lyrics as opposed to the catchy melody that hooks the listener in the original.

Anti Up have left the pizza at home and returned for a three-track EP, Hey Pablo, thrilling listeners with searing house beats and ever-catchy vocals. Above & Beyond have released their first original collaboration in eight years: a stunning Anjunabeats tune called “Long Way From Home” with Spencer Brown. graves teams up with EZI for a piece that’s equally beautiful and heavy in “I’m Fine.” ODESZA have released the deluxe edition of their seminal A Moment Apart album, featuring a total of 25 songs — including a hefty VIP remix of “Memories That You Call” with Golden Features. Mr. Bill returns to mau5trap for an eerie original, “Apophenia.” Keys N Krates have revealed a Live in Toronto version of their Cura album, visibly demonstrating they hold nothing back in their live productions. Bringing the feels as usual, Illenium has remixed Halsey‘s emotive “Without You” in beautiful form. And as Christmas draws near, Kaskade continues to add to his sounds of the season catalog with a few new holiday tracks, including “Little Town.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
