Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 42

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Since he started releasing music again at the beginning of last year, Party Ghost has been on a roll with originals. Each one’s been quite varied in style, tied together with his signature dark and somewhat glitchy vibe. “Kill,” released in early April, slams its listener with deep, reverberating bass — much like his most recent: “Phantom.” This stormy, brooding vibe is executed perfectly in “Phantom,” though it’s more subdued than its April predecessor. “In the year 2145 the world is ran by Spectre Industries,” Party Ghost notes in the song description. “The story begins with Phantom.”


Ryan Browne has been consistently wreaking havoc on the dance music world with fiery remixes and originals that put a hardcore twist on tracks like Krewella‘s “Alive” and Alison Wonderland‘s “Messiah.” In his latest, a cover of the classic “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada, Browne whips out the drum sticks for a powerful take on the 2007 classic, mixing in elements of hardstyle and dubstep for a rendition that’s not for the faint of heart.


Armada powerhouse Armin Van Buuren has followed up his mid-April “Therapy” with the release of a funk-injected remix from Throttle. The Melbourne artist has made a name for himself with groovy hits like his take on “Hit the Road Jack” and his remix of Earth, Wind & Fire’s iconic “September.” His “Therapy” remix looks to be another stellar addition to his discography, as he adds a classic disco vibe to James Newman’s vocals.


There are few things I love more than the mixing of genres. German drum & bass duo Neonlight have put a VIP spin on one of their own tracks, combining gorgeous orchestral elements, soaring electric guitar and a drum & bass rhythm for a formidable four-minute venture. Its action-packed, cinematic feel is bolstered by hefty bass and dramatic builds that leave the listener wanting more as the synths peter out at the end.


Fresh off a four-track NEST HQ EP, Canadian duo Chuurch have come back with a sultry remix of REZZ and 13‘s celebrated collaboration, “DRUGS!” Digging into the style they call “lean bass,” the pair have crafted a remix saturated with wobbles and weighty bass. REZZ and 13’s haunting melody drifts in and out of the remix, allowing the duo to carry it through while adding their own unique twist.

REZZ unveils the sinister ‘Witching Hour’

This post was originally published on this site

Few artists have come onto the electronic music scene and immediately entrenched themselves as an awesome talent quite like REZZ was able. The superstar producer was famously spotted early by mau5trap and has only made her star rise with each successive release that hits the bullseye of technical proficiency and broad appeal.

Fans have a lot to get excited about from REZZ recently, with her recently announced sophomore LP, Certain Kind of Magic, set for release in August and an upcoming collaboration with mau5trap head honcho, deadmau5. Now, she’s pulled back the curtain a bit more with a new single, “Witching Hour.”

REZZ opts for spidery, skittering percussion and reverb-heavy synth lines to set a fitting ominous mood. Over a thudding kick drum, basses morph from liquid abstractions to serrated waves at will, and act as proof that the producer isn’t slowing down one bit.

REZZ drops new ID at Movement Festival

On June 1, REZZ sent the internet into a tailspin with the announcement of her sophomore album, Certain Kind of Magic. The strikingly trippy album art looks to ring true to her out-there style, and her follow-up to Mass Manipulation is sure to be, too.

Just days ago, at Detroit’s Movement Festival, REZZ’s heavy set was highlighted by a few IDs, like the one audible below. Could it be something from her forthcoming album? We’ll find out on Aug. 3.

REZZ shares details, release date for sophomore album, ‘Certain Kind Of Magic’

This post was originally published on this site

It may seem as if scintillating interactions and deeply personal messaging with her fans are her biggest talent as of late, but let us not forget the deeply mesmerizing properties of REZZ‘s music. With the full scope of her production prowess on display with her debut album Mass Manipulationit’s understandable that many are still under her spell to this day. Although REZZ’s studio sessions with deadmau5 have been dominating the news as of late, the tantalizing act is still set to release an album of her own.

Now, true to her Twitter-fingers inclinations, REZZ has announced that her new album, Certain Kind Of Magic, will see the light of day August 3.

The first single drops Friday, June 8, with the full album to follow August 3. Certainly, it will be the kind of magic all its own that has set the artist apart.

Rezzmau5 is imminent: REZZ and deadmau5 collaboration officially in the works

REZZ has been quite adamant about avoiding the confirmation of a collaboration with deadmau5. Rather, she’s been taking her time, assuring fans that it “will happen,” though in due time.

Now, it appears as though the two may actually release the collaboration sooner than anticipated after sending the internet into a frenzy with a new screenshotted private conversation.

 

Deadmau5 has even begun to tease the collaboration on his Instagram, and though there’s no news as to when the collaboration will arrive,  know that mediocrity is never an option with these two.

This post was originally published on this site

Suwannee Hulaween is one annual boutique gathering that is developing a devout following with its expert curation and wildly magical grounds. The Halloween weekend festival, running from October 26-28, 2018, hosts an impressive talent roster that brings an exceptional mixture of jamtronica, emergent bass, and deep house to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.

Set in the midst of 800-acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress along the black Suwannee River, and complete with the largest bat house in the southeast US, the storied festival grounds have earned a reputation of inexplicable imagination and exploration. 

Sitting atop this year’s festival billing is the longtime host band of the festival The String Cheese Incident, plus a top billing of Grammy award winners and nominees featuring live-electronic front runners ODESZA, a South-East exclusive by modern funk icons Jamiroquai, and very special showing by singer-songwriter Janelle Monae on the wake of her blowout Dirty Computer record.

The star-studded billing continues with the reigning king of west coast bass Tipper, five piece American funk band Vulfpeck, multiple sets by leaders of the post-rock dance movement STS9, the alternative radio chart topping wonder of The Revivalists, dark-electro wunderkind Rezz, plus the unique electronic stylings of Gramatik, NGHTMRE, Troyboi, Snakehips, Emancipator Ensemble, Manic Focus & the MF’n Band, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Eats Everything and many more.

Tickets on sale now.

REZZ has completed her next album

This post was originally published on this site

REZZ is easily one of the most in-demand artists on the electronic dance music circuit right now. Between playing the world’s top music festivals, including stops at Ultra and Coachella this year, it’s a wonder how the Queen of Neptune finds time to work on new material. While at these events, REZZ took advantage of the global spotlight and debuted a couple of brand new track IDs — a 1788-L collaboration on UMF’s Worldwide stage, followed by another ID with 13 while out at California’s Wobbleland.

Less than one year after Isabelle Rezazadeh released her debut album, Mass Manipulation, the producer casually took to Twitter this week to announce that her next album was complete. The fact that she found the time to crank out an entirely new LP during this short time span speaks to the 22-year-old producer’s passion and work ethic. The album still has to undergo post-production work, and no release date or other information has yet been released.
