Marshmello launches gaming series, live from his Mello Cave every FridayMaresdefault

Marshmello has become widely know for his vibrant music that bounces with his signature saw bass and catchy melodies, but there is more to the man behind this mask.

In the past months, Marshmello has been flaunting his talents outside of music whether it be in the form of a cooking show or teaming up with Fortnite masters such as Ninja. With more and more celebrities joining in the gaming scene, Marshmello now decides to create his own show where he will play a slew of games in his Mello Cave with other celebrities and gamers alike.

He will host a new episode every Friday on his YouTube channel, and in the preview below teases episodes of Rock Band with Jauz, Slushii and Ghastly, to FIFA, and even some Grand Theft Auto.

Slushii lightens Imogen Heap’s ‘Hide and Seek’ with a future bass rinsing

This post was originally published on this site

The temptation to remix a popular classic is ever-persistent. Not only are producers consistently inspired by these groundbreaking songs of old, but adding their name onto a piece with such a known title is a great way to get their name out.

Imogen Heap‘s “Hide and Seek” falls into the category of frequently-remixed singles, and it looks like one of her latest admirers happens to be the up-and-coming bass talent Slushii. He recently shared what he defines as an “oldie” edit to her iconic record.

Where Imogen conjures sorrow through stirring vocals and minimal edits, the LA-based producer has added a cotton-candy twist to the original with cheery riffs of synthesizer and fluttering accents lining the background. Nothing is complete in a Slushii production without a smooth, future bass drop, of course — this re-work is certainly not lacking in this motif. Ultimately, we’re left with a bubbly piece that might not evoke the same emotive impact that Imogen sought, but nonetheless serves as a comfortable and nostalgic number for festival season.

Slushii doubles down on happy hardcore in latest single, ‘Want You to Know’

This post was originally published on this site

Slushii loves EDM. Through he through. He loves the energy. Now, he wants to make it as blatantly clear as possible that his fans know too — as if the producer hadn’t already — with his latest single “Want You to Know.” It’s an outright happy hardcore embrace, as Slushii moves past his heavier-handed deliverances and even his more alternative gems with the newly energetic departure.

Considering that the producer’s become virtually synonymous with the rambunctious air of EDM, his boisterous pop track isn’t the least bit unexpected. Perhaps he’ll continue to surprise us moving forward, though if he sticks to one style for a period of time, it’s a track like this, right in his comfort zone, that’ll ensure his relevance is sustained.

Slushii delivers heavy-handed seven-track ‘Find Your Wings’ EP following massive Ultra 2018 performance

It’s been an exciting journey thus far for Slushii. The emerging young beatmaker, born Julian Scanlan, has deservedly settled in as one of the industry’s most lauded new talents after a meteoric breakthrough campaign over the last year and a half. Coming off the heels of a brilliant return to Ultra performing at the Worldwide Stage, Slushii is keeping the momentum high, following up with the release of his brand new Find Your Wings EP.

Blending bass-heavy and euphoric, upbeat melodies with a hint of 8-bit inspiration, plus the use of his own vocals, Slushii has proven to be a force behind the console, showcasing his versilitity on the new collection. Speaking on the new EP, Slushii told Dancing Astronaut, 

“This EP was really a culmination of what I grew up listening to mixed with some of the craziest sound design I think I’ve ever done. Super stoked for peeps to hear it.”

The EP is seven tracks of headbanger-approved dubstep from front to back, culminating on tracks like “Bounce,” a menacing “Fired Up,” and the EP’s lead single “Where I’m At.”  Ultra proved to be a perfect testing ground for Slushii’s new solo products, and between his recent outing in Miami and his debut LP last year, Out of LightSlushii’s upward trajectory seems to be as steep as ever.

The new independent EP, released March 30, is available now on all digital streaming platforms. Showing off his versitile hand in the studio and an ear for heavier sonics than we’re used to from him, enjoy Slushii’s dabble in dubstep on Find Your Wings.

Newest Slushii and Marshmello collaboration explores emo side of EDM

This post was originally published on this site

Frequent collaborators Marshmello and Slushii are the cutting edge of dolin out poppy, buoyant dance music to the masses. Their Pulitzer Prize-winning first collaboration, “Twinbow,” was received as a charming ballad which left both fans and critics yearning for more.

Now the two confectionary producers teamed up once again, but this time in the attempt to bring in a completely new canon to their candy-pop style of EDM. That’s right, “There X2” ventures into the realm of punk-rock with its emo-affected vocals meldedonto the pair’s party bass elements. Bright arpeggios, toy box synths, and reverb bass mark the track, bringing a hopeful appeal to a genre that is typically known for fast-paced, hard-edged melodies and stripped-down instrumentation.

Given Marshmello’s last single, “You & Me,” where the producer debuted his own singing, perhaps this new merging of sounds shouldn’t have been unexpected.

BTS — MIC Drop (Slushii remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Slushii‘s burst onto the EDM scene has been felt in waves, and the Los Angeles based producer shows no signs of slowing down. With a debut album — Out Of Light — released in August, massive performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, & EDC Orlando, and a plethora of incoming original releases and remixes, the ascendant producer is hitting the ground running into 2018.

On his newest remix to “MIC Drop,” Slushii injects his own carbonated blend of EDM ear candy into the hip hop original, forsaking its ominous overtones for bubbly, anime-inspired tones. The track’s invigorating synths will surely impact the dancefloor during the upcoming festival season.
