Another installment of New Orleans festival Voodoo has officially arrived, bringing 65-plus acts across diverse genres together for one jam-packed Halloween weekend. Taking place in New Orleans’ City Park on the Festival Grounds during weekend of October 25-27, the music and arts experience has attracted more than 2000 artists to play since its 1999 debut. Voodoo’s programming traditionally focused on rock and punk artists, having hosted Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Duran Duran, Nine Inch Nails—to name a few. However, over the past years Voodoo Fest has notably expanded their roster to an eclectic curation of genres; electronic has undeniably crept in as a prominent one.

This year, Voodoo welcomes headliners Guns N’ Roses, Post Malone, and Beck while simultaneously featuring big electronic acts including Bassnectar, ZHU, REZZ, The Glitch Mob, Big Gigantic, and more. Newcomers disrupting the scene like WHIPPED CREAM, Elohim, Peekaboo, and k?d also grace the lineup.

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

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 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.

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.
