SLANDER and RIOT team up for a release full of surprises with ‘You Don’t Even Know Me’SLANDER C Koury Angelo

SLANDER cannot be stopped. The duo comprising of Derek Andersen and Scott Land have been coming out releases more or less on a bi-weekly basis, with their newest  being “You Don’t Even Know Me” alongside RIOT. This follows their collaboration with Crankdat, another another high-profile pairing to add to their ever-growing list. The first three minutes of the track are a smooth melodic tune with enthralling vocals and a flowing backdrop that evokes a sense of calm. As it hits its third minute, however, a powerful drop comes out of seemingly nowhere, slapping listeners with a hard-hitting array of synths and low-end.

“You Don’t Even Know Me” comes fresh off news that Anderson and Land will be teaming up with producer NGHTMRE to launch their very own record label, which they’ve unsurprisingly dubbed Gud Vibrations. “You Don’t Even Know Me” is out now via Monstercat.

NGHTMRE and SLANDER announce launch of Gud Vibrations label, along with first upcoming releaseGud Vibrations E1537369474677

NGHTMRE and SLANDER have been a production power trio for years now. The bass-brandishing artists are now siphoning their music-making relationship, hallmarked by earth-rumbling tracks like the 2015 “Gud Vibrations,” into their very own record label: the fittingly titled, Gud Vibrations

The label heads brought WAVEDASH onstage at their liberally attended Lost Lands performance to announce that the latter would be the first to officially release on their new imprint. A Texan trio with a penchant for deep dub, WAVEDASH took to Facebook to announce their first release will be the inaugural “Opening Ceremony.” WAVEDASH are no foreigners to the electronic forefront, having appeared on upper echelon housings like OWSLA for “Bang” and Mad Decent for their collaborative track, “Grave,” with none other than NGHTMRE.

Aside from being great friends, NGHTMRE and SLANDER are serial collaborators in the studio. Outside the workroom, the now-omnipresent entities have embarked on a world tour together, recently announcing another under the the Gud Vibrations masthead. With such a prolific relationship on their odometers, there’s little doubt the triangular talent will be suffering any unity issues as they launch this new endeavor.

Kill The Noise completely transforms ‘Only Want U’ into a multiflavored new remix

Kill The Noise completely transforms ‘Only Want U’ into a multiflavored new remixKill The Noise

Only those who have listened to Snails, NGHTMRE, and Akylla’s original rendition of “Only Want U” numerous times would be able to identify the similarities in Kill The Noise‘s surprising remix of the track.

The introduction opens with an Afroman level of funk infusion, and melts into slightly cunning vocal edits not featured in the original. Those familiar with Kill The Noise’s previous productions might feel a bit surprised after the first minute of the track given its calmer nature, but this surprise soon becomes familiarity once the track drops into a cacaphony of shrill synthesis and heavy dubstep rhythms. Luckily, a moment of respite follows at the end, when the remix drifts slowly off into a field of bass breaks. Such a wide range of influences and styles in three minutes makes for quite the captivating listen, but those who love the original should not go into listening to the remix looking for similarities between the two.

Australian bass duo Carmada took a multi-year hiatus, proving absence makes the heart grow fonder once they returned with hit collaboration “Embrace” alongside NGHTMRE and original release, “Ready For It.” The remixes for “Ready For It” are trickling in, including a dubstep rendition via MUST DIE!, but that isn’t stopping the duo from releasing more. They are out with their second single via Insomniac Records this year, this time in the form of catchy collaboration “Lay It Down” alongside famed electronic music collaborator Georgi Kay.

Electrifying synths build to a breaking point, giving way to future bass chords that explode, taking command of the track. Kay’s punching vocals give the chords direction as her angst ups the intensity of the track.

The Chainsmokers ditch pop on new NGHTMRE-assisted ‘Save Yourself’

Call The Chainsmokers output radio fodder, but fans will be hard pressed to call their newest collaboration with NGHTMRE remotely close to the pop music that propelled the duo to megastardom. The track is titled “Save Yourself,” and it is a part of The Chainsmokers’ steady stream of releases, landing as the sixth track on their EP, Sick Boy.

Fans were surprised when NGHTMRE previewed the joint project during his EDC Las Vegas performance, and the full release proves that a live set is the track’s perfect home. “Save Yourself” features a monstrous bassline holding steady through dancing chords that build into cutting dubstep breaks. Drew Taggart is the vocalist on the track, which manages to complement the heavy production without being the focal point of the song.  The Chainsmokers spoke in an official release about how the track serves as a ‘coming home’ for the duo, in a departure of their dominating pop sound.

“We are really excited about this tune. Tyler (NGHTMRE) has been a good friend of ours for sometime and we always talked about how great it would be to work together on a song. We have always been a huge fan of his style of producing and thought that if we came together on a song we could make something really unique and badass, and the idea of making something really gnarly was very appealing… We come from the dance world, those are our roots and we are really excited to release a song that is deeply rooted in that with NGHTMRE.”

NGHTMRE and Wavedash release monstrous new track ‘Grave’

NGHTMRE and Wavedash release monstrous new track ‘Grave’Grave Nghtmre Wavedash

NGHTMRE has teamed up with Wavedash for a monstrous bass-driven collaboration named “Grave.” The track is out now via Mad Decent.

“Grave” buries listeners in huge piles of bass laced with lacerating synths that cut through the eardrums like a hot knife through butter. It’s a record built for throwing festival crowds into utter chaos, and it does this job well by following a tried-and-true formula for bass creation. Despite roughness around “Grave’s” edges, it’s quite an easy number for fans to pour all their rage-fueled dance moves into.

Wavedash recently released a track with NGHTMRE’s Gud Vibrations‘ partners in crime, SLANDER, so the duo teaming up with the dubstep veteran was far from a surprise. “Grave” is everything fans would expect from Wavedash and NGHTMRE uniting, and fans will certainly see the artists’ performing the track live in sets this fall.

Things are starting to move quickly for LA-based electronic talent WHIPPED CREAM. Born Caroline Cecil, the Canadian export has been carving out her upward trajectory as a producer over the last five years, steadily building her profile behind a trap-inspired style that captures an expressive west coast influence. Now, she’s positioned for a true breakout moment, signing on to the Prodigy Artists family as their newest recruit.

Joining the same team as some of dance music’s most in-demand artists of the moment, including JOYRYDE, SLANDER, and NGHTMRE, Prodigy’s lofty ranks and tightly knit team should prove to be a fitting home for WHIPPED CREAM as she reaches the next chapter in her career. In a statement, Prodigy Artists co-founder Will Runzel expounds on the new signing,

“The first time I saw Caroline perform, I knew I was in the presence of a generational talent. Once I heard her speak about the project I saw a long-term and unique vision that only the greats possess. She won’t fit any performer archetype on the market today and I promise you won’t see anything like her on the festival circuit this summer or any other summer.”

With new management and booking powers now driving the project, as well as a number of high profile appearances slated for the summer including Electric Zoo and HARD Summer, expect major moves from WHIPPED CREAM’s camp moving forward.

NGHTMRE releases new hip-hop EP, ‘Magic Hour’ with rapper Pell

This post was originally published on this site

NGHTMRE has deservedly built his reputation of creating inventive sonics across a wide variety of genres, consistently dropping off hard bass drops juxtaposed with hip-hop, working with collaborators including Wiz Khalifa and PnB Rock. The LA-based producer is back with a new two-track EP titled Magic Hour, coming in as NGHTMRE‘s first release in five months. The short EP is a joint effort with emerging southern rapper Pell, blending the “No Coming Down” producer’s well-rounded production sensibilities with Pell’s infectious lyrical flow, adding another successful crossover venture to NGHTMRE’s ever-growing rap sheet.

The EP consists of two tracks — upbeat “Swiss” complete with a singalong-primed hook followed by a more laid back lo-fi inspired take on “Lights Low.” The quick twofer brings together both artist’s complementary sounds into one cohesive, albeit short, body of work, that leaves the listener wanting more. Landing by way of NGHTMRE’s longtime home imprint, Magic Hour is available now via Mad Decent.
