1788-L brings renegade funk with official flip of The Glitch Mob’s ‘Disintegrate Slowly’1788 L The Glitch Mob Remi

In his first flex since the blistering S E N T I E N C E EP on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint, 1788-L returns to the remix ring with a heavy new flip of The Glitch Mob‘s “Disintegrate Slowly.” The mysterious producer’s contribution to The Glitch Mob’s remix-stuffed deluxe edition of their See Without Eyes LP serves as a loud reminder for any fans remiss of his  remixing savvy.

1788-L’s take borrows the original’s hard rock backbone and speeds things up for an extra dose of energy–and that’s before the gritty bass and pounding percussion take hold. Building around a synth-riff steeped in guitar-style twang, the track explodes into one of the artist’s most nuanced drops to date. The familiar distorted crackle envelopes a glitch-heavy breakbeat and a destructively funky bass line. It’s clear the producer is feeling free and easy to expand his sonic signature to new rhythmic and experimental territory. Even among the heavy hitters delivering the album’s remix consignments, including Machinedrum and REZZ, 1788’s rendition is still an unequivocal standout.

ODESZA’s “Falls” gets an all-star remix pack from Kaskade, TOKiMONSTA, and moreOdesza

ODESZA blasted back into focus this fall with the release of the horn-powered cinema that is “Loyal”– but that didn’t stop them reaching back to their 2017 track “Falls” for a grip of remixes by a fittingly star-studded set of names. Originally appearing on the duo’s fourth long player A Moment Apart, the Sasha Sloan-assisted cut was pure ODESZA from start to finish, with echoing vocal cuts and tribal percussion. With six stellar artists on hand to reimagine the song, it’s clear the track is headed for exciting new worlds on a stellar array of remixes.

UK-based trap and hip hop savant TroyBoi is up first with a minimal knocker of a rework, featuring sugary guitar strums and twinkling leads over knocking drums. Australian producer Golden Features swoops in next to dial up a menacing and spacey house take that packs equal punch and ambiance. TOKiMONSTA provides a standout addition by preserving the joy and depth of the original along with an injection of stuttering percussion and driving vocal chops. Ever the wildcard, Kaskade surprises with a majestic trap-infused take that lets the vocals soar over rich electro-tinged pads. Photay keeps the unexpected rolling with a rolling and experimental offering that glitches the original’s vocals into a synth like riff. The Glitch Mob wrap the journey up with their sizzling signature electro, capping off a remix pack that brings the ever expansive emotion of ODESZA into the throes of some of electronic music’s most creative minds.

Machinedrum transforms The Glitch Mob’s ‘Enter Formless’ into a shapeshifting glitch weapon

Machinedrum transforms The Glitch Mob’s ‘Enter Formless’ into a shapeshifting glitch weaponMachinedrum Glitch Mob Enter Formless Remi

Machinedrum have unveiled a sub-torturing take on The Glitch Mob‘s “Enter Formless,” the opening track to the group’s 2018 album, See Without Eyes. Machinedrum previously supplied remix magic on the electronic group’s 2011 Drink The Sea (Remixes Vol. 2) compilation, and the glitch house stalwart shows no fear this go around crafting a daring and experimental transformation for The Glitch Mob.

The original’s bold synth riffs boom-bap percussion still star in Machinedrum’s rework. The remix opens with the melody flanked gorgeously by acoustic guitars as a snare roll launches into the first drop, a transition that perfectly characterizes the take’s bi-polar sonic structure. Distorted subs swell and expand from behind crunchy breakbeat kicks, before the drop reaches a drum and bass-inspired boil. The guitars and spaced out synth melody return in a wash of echoes and ambiance, before song explodes again into a glitchy drop topped with searing pads. Just as the listener begins settling into the madness, the remix ends on a lone acoustic guitar plucking out the original’s melody to melancholic effect.

Machinedrum’s shape-shifting interpretation latches onto the bold and beautiful elements of the original and dials them up to 11 in their own solo moments, creating a constantly surprising and satisfying new production.

The Glitch Mob unveil new documentary, ‘Behind The Blade 2.0’The Glitch Mob 1 1

 

Relentless sonic experimenters of The Glitch Mob have released a new mini documentary, The Glitch Mob: Behind The Blade 2.0, with the help of collaborators, Alienware, in attempts to shed light on their unique processes and artistic mission statement.

The seven-minute feature traces the band’s enduring efforts to travel a less-trodden musical pathway and discover original ways to advance their narrative. One way The Glitch Mob—who is known for their unfettered ability to blend live instrumentation and intricate electronic production—says they have achieved this one-of-a-kind sonic status is through innovations like Blade 2.0: an unparalleled instrument of the group’s own creation that delivers a categorically immersive live experience in ways such as “creating a visual companion piece with each track.”

The group uses the documentary ultimately to emphasize their intentions to bring people together in a time when “people are more divided than ever,” noting their sheer awe of the unifying effect music can have on people.

“In a day in age when everything is about hit singles and pumping out content, we still believe in the album to tell the deeper and more enriched story,” they said. “Good stories have no expiration date, and that is where we have continued to put our focus.”

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.


The Magician casts his infectious house melodies on Michael Calfran’s “It’s Wrong,” featuring smooth vocals from Danny Dearden. A bouncing bassline dances with the melody, adding a groovy swing to the remix.

Russian DJ ARTY brings an effervescent light to “Perfect Strangers,” A Euro dance build falls into stuttering electro house. Big, bright synths are part of the lush atmosphere he’s built here, seemingly drawing inspiration from Avicii in his early works.

Timmy Trumpet and Maddix have teamed up to bring stadium-sized psytrance in “The Prophecy,” released off Hardwell‘s Revealed imprint. Middle Eastern vocals dance alongside big kicks and a hefty bassline, while on the verses, bright synths croon above a bed of casual drums, unaware of what’s to come next.

Dzeko teams up with Brazilian producer, Liu, to show off intimidating bass house with body-tingling bass and rhythm-bouncing vocal chops. The melody builds anticipation on “Don’t Stop,” which then drops listeners deep down low into a bass abyss.

Abby Diamond walks along filtered sultry synths, twinkling texture, and accompanying percussive elements in “Irrelevant.” The harmony wafts in the air or flows like water, with Diamond’s dynamic atmosphere personifying elements.

Armada Music has released “Antares,” a bright electro house festival thumper from the two Dutch brothers, DubVision. Inspiring melodies build and maintain anticipation while the kick drives.

Phantoms feature Vanessa Hudgens on their pop-inspired single, “Lay With Me.” Hudgens rides the groove, showing off her range and spirit-lifting hooks.

Anna Yvette gets retro on “Shooting Star,” with her vocals gliding along ’80s synths, old-school drums, and a sparkling atmosphere, while slowing the tempo down for breakdowns. “Shooting Star” also features a sick guitar solo during the bridge.

Lido has released his I O U 1 EP off Emmanuel de Buretel’s Because Music label. “Partake” stands out among the list of must-listens, as a melancholy Lido slows heartbeats and mourns over distraught emotions. The song takes a turn halfway through, touting a story of resiliency.

i_o builds flawlessly on “Feel You Now,” sliding the arrangement into melodic bliss that sounds like stars shimmering in the night. A pulsating bassline drives alongside the big kick rhythm.

League of Legends is known for collaborating with great artists and releasing fire tracks. This time around, they team up with The Glitch MobMako, and The Word Alive for their 2018 theme song, “Rise.” Notes of electronic rock give way to a bit of headbanging in a more pop avenue.

Secondcity delivers groovy funk house with soulful vocals on top in “Tomorrow’s World.” Chord progressions of keys build with sax sounds to create a must-listen for any disco lover.

DJ Doctor Boom delivers a remix pack of JoJo‘s “Oh Yes Oh Yes” off his Del Sol imprint based out of Tampa, Florida. Brian Busto’s stands out for its infectious percussive swing and contrast between gritty lows and scintillating highs.

Hanne Mjøen’s newest single might be called “Sounds Good To Me,” but in actuality it sounds good to everyone. The blossoming Norwegian singer has been signed to Warner — a sign of true talent — and is already capturing worldwide attention with infectious hits like the one above.

Adam Port and RÜFÜS DU SOL make for an enticing combination. The Keinemusik member put his simmering, hypnotic touch on the Australian trio’s original “Underwater,” which works extraordinarily well with the airy chords and feel-good vocals of the song’s first iteration.

The Glitch Mob team up with Strangeloop to release ‘See Without Eyes’ visual album accompaniment

This post was originally published on this site

The Glitch Mob‘s third studio album, See Without Eyes, received no shortage of critical praise over the past week. Now the gritty bass music trio have just unearthed an out-of-this-world visual accompaniment designed to take viewers/listeners on a fully immersive journey through the album’s 11 tracks — all built in a 3D, Virtual Reality environment.

The creative mind behind the mesmerizing array of visual stimuli is none other than famed production company, Strangeloop Studios, headed up by LA-based A/V artist, Strangeloop, whose worked alongside with Pharrell, The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, and some of the biggest names in the industry. The group says they gave Strangeloop gave them a copy of their album, along with the full creative license to build his reactions in visual form whilst listening to the album.

Each individual music video is jam-packed with psychedelic visuals, which storyboard together to paint a larger picture for the album, allowing viewers to journey into the future. All 11 tracks on the album take a different shape, each telling their own highly-interpretative stories, but the recurrent theme of self-discovery on the album is also apparent throughout the videos.

In addition to the visual album accompaniment, The Glitch Mob have just embarked on their world tour with their revamped live setup, Blade 2.0, powered by Dell. The tour kicked off in Edmonton, CA and will run until the end of the summer, with notable stops at Lightning In A BottleGovernors BallBonnarooElectric Forest, and Shambhala along the way.

The Strangeloop-produced video component will also be featured on tour in the form of a unique, immersive VR machine for people to experience in the lobbies at their shows.

The Glitch Mob exude respect for the process in their third studio album, ‘See Without Eyes’ [Interview + Album Review]

This post was originally published on this site

When The Glitch Mob take a break from the visible public eye, longtime fans of Boreta, edIT, and Ooah know something masterful is in the works. After all, if there’s anything this LA-based powerhouse trio is known for, it’s a penchant for profundity and a fondness for not rushing the artistic process.

“For us, music is more about the process than the final piece of work,” they told us in a conversation leading up to the release of their third full-length studio album. 

At the same time, almost four years has passed since the release of their sophomore LP, Love Death Immortality, which debuted at #13 on the Billboard 200 album chart and No. 1 on the iTunes electronic chart. As opposed to the highly experimental nature of their debut Drink the Sea LP, LDI exuded a newfound sense of direction with the introduction of storylines and a complex array of heavily layered tracks. Fans are, needless to say, squeamish to hear how those sonic storylines have evolved.

Rest easy, young apostles, for today, May 4, marks the official release of The Glitch Mob’s third album in eight years, titled See Without Eyes, via their independent imprint, Glass Air Records. 

“See Without Eyes has elements of our first two albums, but explores new territory,” says Boreta. “We aimed to have it be a full body listening [experience] as well as have impact live. The album is a piece of us combined with all of the lives of the people who have brought it to life. We hope people connect with the music and feel something their own way, like the comfort looking at the stars.”

It is this sense of profound connection to the supernatural process of creation that The Glitch Mob has been infusing into their musical stamp for over a decade — since their early days of experimenting with sounds at Burning Man. Certainly, as die hard burners, and artists who owe their career start to life on the playa, the three have encoded the spiritual and communal energy of Black Rock City into the very fibers of their being.

“Playing some of our first shows at Burning Man definitely honed our creative DNA. It’s all about taking people on a journey and that has stuck with us. We didn’t know anything about the music industry at the time; we were experimenting with sound. We’ve kept the sense of experimentation.”

A love for experimentation, of pure joy and playfulness, and a simultaneous appreciation for evolution, to an almost philosophical degree, continue to be important themes for the guys in their musical output. Perhaps that is why their music is so hard to pin down stylistically; for it is anything but generic. Their portfolio is mystical, perplexing, and always deeply satisfying. Listeners often walk away with as many questions about their lives, the lives of others, and the universal force fueling it all, as they do filled with immense gratitude for the experience.


“This album is about the mystery of being human. Music can express truths far above above and beyond where words falter and cease.”


This is the kind of raw, undefined energy The Glitch Mob strives to reignite in their music and live shows, one that is elusive beyond of the timelessness of sound — and it’s safe to say, they want it that way.

With inspirations ranging from Aphex Twin to Jay-Z to British Eastern philosopher Alan Watts, and spiritual teacher Ram Dass in between, it’s no wonder the style and attitude of a Glitch Mob track is so elusory and mysteriously divine.

See Without Eyes is an album that’s rather difficult to critique, perhaps because it is such a layered, fully-embodied listening experience. There are, however, two thematic qualities as to why the LP works as seamlessly as it does. Almost like a light and dark energy fueling the other, experimentation and evolution are two prominent forces driving See Without Eyes.


“That’s the powerful thing about music: it’s different for everyone and doesn’t mean one thing in particular. You might hear dark and someone else hears light.”


The album’s leading track, “Enter Formless,” offers the first gateway into The Glitch Mob’s world of amorphous, experimental sounds. Complete with vocals from Sacramento-based female electronic duo Rituals of Mine, the lyrics —”Tell me how you feel it” — quite literally instruct the listener to forget about form, genre, and the like, and simply open their bodies and minds to the sonic experience. Yet, at the same time, the song is anything but formless — boasting rich melodies, a dedication to structure, and clear direction guided by classical horns and their signature electro-stabbing synths.

From this starting point, the album gradually progresses to tell a larger story, with each track building on the last so as to ease listeners deeper into their world. It is a world where light and dark energies are constantly competing with each other and, at the same time, complementary to one another. “Disintegrate Slowly” is one piece that exemplifies this notion, taking listeners on jolting ride into experimental tones and broken beats. Cinematic horns and percussive elements set a foreboding mood as the trio takes unpredictable twists and turns before dropping abruptly into the more melodic track, “Keep On Breathing.”

One thing is certain at the album’s midpoint: See Without Eyes is not just a collection of individual tracks, but a comprehensive masterpiece that demands to be experienced as a greater whole. Bouncing back and forth between experimental, non-lyrical tracks like “Come Closer,” “Interbeing,” and “The Way Is Out” and more melodic, gut-wrenching collaborative ballads — such as in the previously released “How Could This Be Wrong (ft. Tula), “Take Me With You (ft. Arama),” and “I Could Be Anything” (ft. Elohim).


“This album is a result of a deep dive. It’s a love note to the art form of music and the way it connects us. It’s a result of us experimenting, having fun, and collaborating with some incredible artists.”


See Without Eyes is brimming with unique collaborations, which speaks to The Glitch Mob’s yearning to work with artists who organically fuel their sound. Not only does the album enlist some of the music industry’s most exceptional underground artists — from rising electronic talent Elohim, Arama, Ambre, and two tracks with Isreali singer/songwriter Tula — but the group has sought out a few meteoric young bass talents in REZZ and Illenium as well.

“These connections all happened organically,” says The Glitch Mob. “We’re all mutual fans of each other’  music, which is how our best collaborations happen. Mindshare.”

As the album begins to descend, after cascading between the eery and yet hopeful tones of “Go Light,” The Glitch Mob harken back to the emotional with a harmonic and hypnotizing ballad in the Ambre-assisted track, “How Do I Get To Invisible.” After entrancing hums on the lead in, Ambre’s vocals take center stage on the track with stand out lyrics —”All of my flaws make me out to perfection” — overlaid by an experimental landscape choked full of arpeggiated chords and beguiling instrumentation.

The album also boasts an innovative, avante-garde visual component created by the trio’s visual arts designer, David Wexler, also known as Strangeloop, who has also worked on visuals for Pharrell, Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and more. The group says they gave Strangeloop See Without Eyes to build his reactions in visual form whilst listening to the album. His visuals will be featured as music videos for all 11 tracks, which link together to paint a larger picture for the album, as well as a unique VR machine for people to experience during The Glitch Mob’s tour through setups in the lobbies at their shows.

As three friends who got their start in the burgeoning Los Angeles bass-driven beat scene, The Glitch Mob has gone from young starry-eyed neophytes, who were just learning their way around the decks at Burning Man, to international rockstars equipped with a DIY sensibility and a deep respect for artistic process.

“The process between us is quite fluid at this point as its been so long. It’s a musical conversation that’s based on trust, surrender, and discipline. In fact, it’s more about the process than the final result. We challenge ourselves, dive deep, and express.”

Still heavily steeped in their signature synthesizers and saturated bass lines, See Without Eyes represents an appreciation for where the three musicians have been and where they are going. Where that is, even Boreta, eDIT, and Oaah may not be able to say. But with landmark festivals like Lightning In A Bottle, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Shambhala on their list of headlining summer appearances, not to mention a massive global tour where they will unveil The Blade 2.0, The Glitch Mob is certainly going places.

Whether or not fans can expect another Burning Man set in the near future, the guys leave that question playfully open-ended. They merely extend gratitude for the people who created a pop-up community which gave them the space to hone their experimental sound: “Thank you, Larry, for making the world a weirder place.”

The Glitch Mob satiates listeners with fourth and final single ahead of new album, ‘Go Light’

This post was originally published on this site

The Glitch Mob is fast-approaching what’s likely to stand as their most severely revamped body of work to date, and without a moment to spare, the trio’s hightailed into the fourth and final single ahead of their return to the dance music sphere.

“Go Light” is an effervescent penultimate cut, complete with the dazzling elements that have come to define the group’s unique sound. Its instrumentals are met with a compelling drum crescendo, all while a progressive sequence leads to a euphoric climax, satiating listeners with their fourth and final glitch hop gem before the trio’s third full studio album lands this Friday.

See Without Eyes is out on May 4.
