JOYRYDE shares alternate version of ‘AGEN WIDA’ [Watch]Joyryde 2

Ahead of his forthcoming debut studio album BRAVE, JOYRYDE has gifted fans with a taste of an alternate version of “AGEN WIDA“. The Skrillex-assisted track dropped in October 2018 and saw the two forces join hands in delivering a jungle-leaning bass house collaboration. It was an instant hit, and shot the UK artist into household name territory within weeks of release. JOYRYDE took to social media to share one of several renditions of the collaborative anthem.

The bass house maverick posted a 47-second clip in the studio showcasing the trap-heavy take on “AGEN WIDA”. The alternate version’s rhythmic energy and boosted bass received positive reception from listeners, many of which asked for JOYRYDE to release the track. He captioned, “found an alt version of AGEN WIDA. i must have done 40 versions. here is one of them.”

Despite a long-awaited debut LP, JOYRYDE has steadily output a string of singles from the anticipated BRAVE LP and continued to exercise his penchant for nasty four-on-the-floor frameworks and tasteful sampling. His latest single, “SELECTA 19” follows “I’M GONE“, “YUCK“, and “MADDEN“. BRAVE has yet to receive an official release date.

JOYRYDE never fails to deliver on his signature brand of high-octane, bass-riddled house, and his latest drop doesn’t deviate from doctrine. Landing as the fourth single from his long-delayed debut LP, Brave, the established DJ-producer comes through with another club burner called “SELECTA 19” via HARD Recs.

The track employs JOYRYDE’s quintessential cues: punchy, pile-driving bass draped over a dancefloor-determined, four-on-the-floor arrangement. Equipped with the English producer’s incisive ear for detail, like blooper beep samples and staticky switch-ups, “SELECTA 19” arrives with in-your-face style. One should expect nothing less from JOYRYDE this late in the bass house game—of which he reigns supreme.

Brave has yet to receive a set-in-stone release date. “SELECTA 19” succeeds “I’M GONE,” “YUCK,” and “MADDEN.”

JOYRYDE ushers debut LP with project’s third single, bass house cut, ‘MADDEN’

JOYRYDE ushers debut LP with project’s third single, bass house cut, ‘MADDEN’Joyryde 2

Few have been able to retain the scene’s ephemeral attention span as long as JOYRYDE has. As the protracted wait for his debut album BRAVE, continues, anticipation has grown exponentially feverish. With the official LP announcement moved from its initial OWSLA housing to a HARD Recs‘ February launch, the bass house pioneer has since given the world a taste of two impending album tracks, “I’M GONE” and “YUCK,” thus far. Now, he he has revealed the third single, “MADDEN,” a quintessential ode to the JOYRYDE sound that landed him a spot at the top of the electronic agenda a handful of years ago.

Inspired by a vision of a Lamborghini and constructed with sonic dexterity, “MADDEN” opens with a soulful sample of Method Man’s “Release Yo’ Delf” before catapulting into a futuristic high-octane breakdown. The tour-tested track returns to JOYRYDE’s signature palette of industrial, speed-driven bass house elements.

“After seeing the movie The Wolf Of Wall Street, I knew I wanted to do something with a Lamborghini Countach. It’s such a beautiful, scary thing that no one ever gets to see in person. On July 26th we had 2 of them on stage at my show in the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. It was a dream come true to do something like that…” says JOYRYDE in a recent press release.

A spoonful of a JOYRYDE record has proven potentially lethal in the years since he stormed the electronic threshold. With the help of Skrillex and former label partner, OWSLA, he’s scrawled his dance-primed, bass-driven insignia to the forefront of the scene in permanent ink.

Gearing up for his debut album, Brave, on Insomniac offshoot, HARD Recs (the auspiciously affiliated imprint’s first LP, too), JOYRYDE has unfolded the second single, “Yuck,” featuring Chicago rapper, GOLD, from the upcoming project. As the collaboration’s visual accompaniment illustrates, the track is among JOYRYDE’s most lurid releases to date. Searing trap chops replace his usual four-by-four time signature, while GOLD’s austere delivery solidifies the track’s shadow-dwelling lifeblood. But the message is not without tact: JOYRYDE and GOLD use the track to rendezvous within the notion of keeping one’s head down while remaining devoted to an artistic endeavor in order to foster and maintain a sense of individualism in the process.

“Yuck” follows the first single from the album, “I’m Gone,” another gumptious house offering which arrived this past February. The full-length studio album is poised to arrive this spring.

Electronic artist WHIPPED CREAM has been defining her status as one of the top-tier talents to watch out for in 2019, and her most recent remix of ZHU‘s “Desert Woman” shows she has no sign of stopping. Drawing early inspiration from the likes of Boys Noize, Dog Blood, Eprom, Baauer and others, WHIPPED CREAM has been making major moves in the past few years including signing to Prodigy Artists —home to JOYRYDE, SLANDER, and NGHTMRE— and a string of music releases including her Persistence EP

WHIPPED CREAM’s remix fleshes out a sinister revamp of ZHU’s track with a hard-hitting drop that gives it all. Building up with slowed-down vocals, intense reverb, and percussive shakers, the artist delivers a frenzied, multifaceted remix with a perfect balance of glitch and punchy bass that refuses to be anything close to formulaic. Transforming a track like “Desert Woman” into an unrecognizable listen is no piece of cake, but WHIPPED CREAM’s depth as a producer continues to prove no boundaries to her evolving trap sound.

The wait for JOYRYDE‘s album has felt like an eternity. But, there’s finally a proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. He began teasing the first single off the upcoming LP just after President’s Day, also confirming that his album is still on its way. “IM GONE” has now been let out into the world to offer a taste of the musical journey in store for the burgeoning producer who took the EDM world by storm in 2016.

The track carries a heavy story behind it. “I started it while recovering from back surgery on maximum strength opioid pills,
explained JOYRYDE in a press release.  “Some parts I don’t remember writing. On those days, I realized what it was like to feel my mental health slipping.”

Indeed, it’s easy to hear these themes in the tune, whose aggressive words and violent bass house frame contrast with emotive piano progressions and bouts of orchestral strings for a tune that manages to depict his illustrate his inner turmoil in a club friendly way. The darker themes end happily: following the writing of “IM GONE” came the rest of the album. It title and release date remain a secret for now, but it seems we’re in for quite the ride.

HARD also has something to celebrate with this album, as it marks the official launch of their HARD Recs label. With a commitment toward preserving the brand’s ethos of curating artists on the cutting edge of hip-hop and electronica, the label is primed to house some top artists in its future. Says Insomniac boss Pasquale Rotella of the launch:

“Last year was massive for HARD and Insomniac Music Group, so it was a natural progression to get both teams working together to build a proper label experience. I’m excited for the roster of exceptional talent we’ll be curating for HARD Recs, and JOYRYDE is the perfect person to kick things off.”

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 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.

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.
