Premiere: Listen to Kompany’s thrashing remix of Space Laces’ ‘Overdrive’Komp 2

LA-based producer Kompany has stepped up with a battering remix of Space Laces‘ “Overdrive,” landing on bass powerhouse Never Say Die Records. The track thrashes from front to back like a Decepticon mosh pit, backed an accompanying orchestral track to support the gargantuan machine’s cinematic movement—and that’s just the first break.

The second part of Kompany’s “Overdrive” remix is a bass head’s dream—stacking cascading metallic synths that send a shiver down the spine. File this one under “heavy,” and even that’s an understatement. The sheer weight of these sounds are a testament to the sound design skills of this Icon Collective alumni.

The original track was the lead single on Space Laces’ Overdrive EP. While the original certainly packs it’s own punch, Kompany’s “Overdrive” makeover kicked things into high gear, adding another menacing bass hallmark to Never Say Die’s unabashedly outrageous catalog.

Excision releases his massive 2018 Lost Lands set along with 24-track festival compilation albumEcision Lost Lands

Lost Lands ended two months ago, and bass heads will be happy to hear Jeff Abel, better known as Lost Lands helmer Excision, dropped some much needed content from the low-end showcase. Excision released the two-hour set he threw down in Legend Valley on the first night at his weekend bass Mecca, along with the festival’s official 2018 compilation. The 105 track mix contains tracks from a variety of X’s collaborators and up-and-comers in the bass music scene. It’s quite the list of artists that head bangers will certainly recognize and maybe even find new favorites in.

This heavy dose of bass music takes dips and dives from the highest energy head-banging madness to more downtempo wubs for much needed breathers. The compilation boasts 24 tracks and features artists such as Space Laces, Dion Timmer, Pegboard Nerds, Sullivan King, YOOKiE, HE$H, Carbin, Virtual Riot, PhaseOne, Riot Ten, and many more. Listen to both below.

Amsterdam Dance Event

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

Snails finally drops long-awaited ‘Break It Down’ along with wild music video

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 2015, French-Canadian bass maestro Snails was a featured guest on an episode of Skrillex‘s OWSLA Radio residency on Apple Music. Between bouts of friendly banter, the superstar DJs showcased two hours worth of tracks in their personal rotations, even going as far as previewing unreleased selects over the air for each other. One such track from Snails, affectionately nicknamed “Squishy Riddim” by Skrillex, is now finally getting an official release as “Break It Down,” on OWSLA, and while Skrill’s unofficial title didn’t stick, it still gave an accurate representation of what the listener is in for.

While the track hasn’t changed much since its infancy, the final product, which also features Space Laces and Sam King, comes with a striking new music video, serving as the follow up to Snails and Botnek‘s previously released “Waffle House” video. The accompanying feature, by Spanish filmmaker Ernest Desumbila, matches the track’s high octane kick with an animated 80’s-inspired sci-fi thrill ride which perfectly complements Snails’ belly-churning production style.
