First Listen: Moody Good revisits one of his best on new ear-splitting ‘Hotplate’ VIP [Stream]Moody Good 7

Ah, 2014—the height of the global EDM boom.

Bassheads will remember this time fondly as Skrillex was spearheading a massive stateside bass movement with his fledging OWSLA imprint. At the time, one such OWSLA signee, UK low-end deity Moody Good, had produced a monstrous hip-hop crossover cut, “Hot Plate” that instantly started making the rounds in DJ sets. Nearly overnight, the track became a certified dubstep anthem, meshing bulldozing breaks with fiery bars from rapper-turned-gamer Knytro. Now, six years after “Hot Plate’s” initial release, Moody Good is circling back with an ear-splitting new VIP mix, breathing new life into one of his biggest tracks to date.

A head-and-shoulders standout from Moody Good’s self-titled debut LP, “Hot Plate” was a brazenly unapologetic intro to Eddie Jeffreys’ new venture following the dissolution of his former group, 16bit. Knytro’s aggressive delivery and Moody Good’s jaw-clenching backdrop made it one of the most in-demand bass cuts of the year, and now, Jeffreys’ is back with more elbow-throwing madness on his solo take. Keeping the majority of the track’s structure in place, Moody ups the ante, lacing Knytro’s rhymes with battering reconfigured breaks. Building the remix around a healthy dose of nostalgia, Moody Good revisits one of his finest, fiercest works to date with an impressively fresh perspective. Listen below.

First Listen: Moody Good and Hydraulix get a menacing remix from Kompany on ‘Squeeky Clean’ [Stream]Kompany Rectangular Press Shot

New year, same old Kompany. The LA-based beatsmith is back to proctoring devastatingly heavy-handed sonics, continuing last year’s steady stream of profile-raising material. Now, fresh off a rattling joint effort with frequent collaborator Wooli on “Bussback,” Kompany has more heat in the chamber, this time offering up an official remix of Hydraulix and Moody Good’s “Squeeky Clean.”

Kompany’s take on the track comes by way of a new remix package for Moody Good’s 2019 Goofball EP, on Never Say Die Records. Bearing all the characteristic hallmarks of a bulldozing Kompany track, the new “Squeeky Clean” remix packs a deafening one-two punch, making for another impressive addition to Kompany’s growing catalog of shaking bass ammunition. Listen below.

Ricky Remedy unleashes long-awaited Skrillex bootleg and festival anthem

Ricky Remedy unleashes long-awaited Skrillex bootleg and festival anthemP0383wd

Being the icon that Skrillex is, it seems that just about anything he touches becomes a hit. But even among a discography of hits exist songs that stand out above the rest, and Skrillex’s Moody Good and Trollphace collaboration “Burial” that taps Pusha T for vocals has achieved legendary status.

Remaining a festival anthem and DJ set mainstay since its release, fans will still hear some iteration of “Burial” rinsed out almost anywhere they go. Now, after over a full year of teasing in live sets, Ricky Remedy has released his trap-infused take on the original.

Created for a 100 percent Ricky Remedy set at Miami Music Week 2018, Ricky Remedy says he produced the remix in only 15 minutes, never expecting it to snowball into the festival anthem it is now. After passing it along to a few DJs to use as a secret weapon, the remix blew up and generated high-energy crowd responses. It’s no surprise crowds have been eating this edit up, as the fake-out drop creates a perfect tension DJs yearn to have in their sets.

Moody Good heads back to Deadbeats for ‘Kush’

Moody Good heads back to Deadbeats for ‘Kush’Moody Good Press Shot

Eddie Jefferys, known now musically as Moody Good, has been disseminating his dastardly dubstep earmark for years—both on his own and formerly, as one half of the bass outfit, 16bit. Since launching his solo project, he’s released with NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s Gud Vibrations, Skrillex‘s OWSLA imprint, and most recently, Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label.

The “Hotplate” producer’s return to Deadbeats is marked by “Kush,” an aural nod to the island-y dominion of rhythmic dub, all the while employing melodic sensibilities to its audacious approach. The track’s bass grinds alongside bubbly, video-game reminiscent synth lines pack an enticing punch for bass consumers on any side of the dubstep continuum.

Moody Good is currently executing his Sunny Side Up headlining tour. Tickets are available here.

SLANDER’s Derek Andersen and Scott Land have delivered “Heart Brake” with Moody Good and featuring KARRA through the former’s very own Gud Vibrations imprint, the label the duo founded with NGHTMRE.

The track floats in a haunting air of monstrous, glitched out ad libs below KARRA’s eerie vocals. Building up to its calculated demise, the perturbed vox cuts out while thrashing bass bellows amongst sharp percussion cuts for a headbanger’s euphoria. Sustained bass creates an atmosphere of prolonged rage, adding to the track’s emotional weight.

Announced alongside the single is an NYC show on January 17 at the Great Hall at Avant Gardner. The headlining event will feature THE EYE production, which was also announced for their January 31 and February 1 shows at the Shrine in LA.

Moody Good (real name Eddie Jefferys) has spent the better part of the last decade coming up with deliciously wicked ways to approach dubstep, to considerable avail. After stepping outside his tenure with his former duo, 16bit, in 2014, he soon found a new home for his pernicious productions with the likes of OWSLA, wherein he released his self-titled debut album that same year.

Now he’s emerged from his low-lit dubstep den for another intuitive pairing, this time with the Zeds Dead-championed Deadbeats, for his latest track, “Bite Your Lip.” Jeffery’s debut on the flourishing imprint is a dastardly dub/trap one-two punch. “Bite Your Lip” makes its audacious aural attack with snarling synths, warped extraterrestrial-status bass, and a harrowing chorus of distorted vocals. If the track had teeth, they’d be full-on fangs.

Moody Good brings the heat with ‘SIXTYSIXTY’

Moody Good brings the heat with ‘SIXTYSIXTY’Goofball EP Moody Good

Moody Good or Moody God?

The former 16bit producer continues to prove the latter with his latest release “SIXTYSIXTY”,  a track off his forthcoming Goofball EP, set to release on March 15 via Never Say Die. A two-year old ID that finally got a name, “SIXTYSIXTY” saw its official release to high anticipation from fans. The OWSLA and MTA Records artist has stayed relatively under the radar with his last track “Super Lager” posted more than a year ago in June 1, 2017. However, the Goofball EP announcement and a tweet by Moody Good confirmed the enigmatic bass deity will be providing new material to fans hopefully all year long.

“SIXTYSIXTY” plays on Moody Good’s signature prowess of complex, high-filth sound design, crafting scratchy synths with punchy bass underlined by a wind-whipping loop that come together to define his unique brand of dubstep. “SIXTYSIXTY” baits with a smooth trap beat that quickly escalates into a headbanger heaven. Listen below.
