Wax Motif and Warez deliver a Deadbeats lesson in “Static Theory”Wat Motif Static Theory

Deadbeats has been letting out some heavy sonic emissions from their Zeds Dead-owned compound. The latest, “Static Theory,” comes to listeners from the LA-based Wax Motif, (the man behind the wall-to-wall festival favorite, his “Fly Kicks” remix) and a fresher face, Warez, who recently materialized on the electronic horizon with a Kayzo collaboration and a pair of Dim Mak guest-mix appearances.

“Static Theory” is anything but stagnant, drawing from Wax’s notoriously elastic beats and skittering hi-hats and Warez affnity for low-end bass. The track’s interference-like textures only add to its pulsing allure, which is heightened by the track’s visual–wherein a sports car endures a slow-motion standoff with a Chinese dragon comprised solely of neon rave lights.

Calvin Harris has what sounds like another chart-topper on his hands. A short, albeit sweet, preview for a new collaboration with English vocalist Rag’N’Bone Man has surfaced, signaling another hit is likely underway for the superstar Scottish producer.

Rag’N’Bone Man, Breakthrough British Act at the 2017 Brit Awards, is carving out success behind his rich, deep crooning. In the newly released preview clip for the forthcoming collaboration, dubbed “Giant,” the emerging singer’s smooth vocalwork is paired with Harris’ buoyant piano chords, in what sounds like a seamless follow up to last year’s sweeping Sam Smith-assisted hit, “Promises.” Preview “Giant” below ahead of its official release on Friday, January 11.

The Weeknd and Gesaffelstein are together again, this time reuniting on “Lost In Fire,” from Gesaffelstein’s upcoming Columbia Records debut, Hyperion, due later this year.

The pair last linked on two tracks from The Weeknd’s My Dear Melancholy in early 2018, and now the R&B star and French electronic visionary are priming fans for their next collaboration, arriving today in the form of a short teaser clip. Gesaffelstein’s LP debut, Aleph, first landed back in October of 2013, and he snapped a four year hiatus in December with the release of his sophomore album’s lead single, “Reset.” Currently, there’s no official release date for “Lost In Fire,” though with the newly surfaced teaser, expect the full single to follow closely.

Nero plots impending comeback, teases return with cryptic new videoNero Live

UK veteran dance legends Nero seem to be preparing a comeback, and it’s coming sooner than anyone expected. The group splintered at the onset of 2018 with the launch of Dan Stephens’ and Alana Watson’s The Night duo, and while the couple’s side project has steadily dropped off new work this year, Joseph Ray has largely kept Nero quiet. Now, with the release of a cryptic video on social media, it seems the trio is back in action — teasing something on the way set for December 4.

The video is vague, but looking back at Nero’s history of releases, a four year gap separated the group’s debut album from their sophomore full length, Between II Worldsone of Dancing Astronaut’s top albums of the year in 2015. That means 2019 could bring a new album from Nero, and the roll out could begin as this year winds to a close. Whatever the group has underway, it’s bound to be big. Stay tuned.

Travis Scott’s Astroworld is undeniably one of the biggest albums of the year, and “SICKO MODE,” the LP’s chart-topping Drake feature, has been one of the defining tracks of 2018. The smash hit has soundtracked the second half of the year, and the tune’s crossover appeal has made it the perfect setlist ignitor for festival performances all summer long. Reminiscent of a little Kendrick Lamar ditty that held a similar grip on the pop consciousness in 2017, Travis Scott‘s rap opus has caught the attention of dance-pop’s prodigal son, Skrillex, just like “HUMBLE” did the year before, and now we’re staring down the barrel at what is likely to be another show stopper remix from the OWSLA head honcho.

Skrillex’s “SICKO MODE” remix has seen a sporadic crowd tests in a few rare Skrillex sets this year, though over the Thanksgiving holiday, Soony Moore was clearly hard at work, taking to social media to tease his new Travis Scott remix, that seems to be nearly complete. Anticipation for the “HUMBLE” remix was high, but the call for “SICKO MODE” is reaching a fever pitch. Although, hopefully the creative bender Skrillex seemed to be on wasn’t solely limited the Travis Scott remix… word has it there’s a sophomore album in the works too. 

Skrillex shares studio footage featuring Boys Noize, igniting rumors of new Dog Blood music

Another day, another teasing Skrillex rumor — but this one might pique fans’ interests a little more than another pop production feature. The OWSLA boss posted a video to social media showing him noodling on some analog synths with fellow Dog Blood member Boys Noize. Anytime these two are together, the rumor mill rightfully goes ablaze.

The duo instantly raced to the front of techno consciousness back in 2012 with the release of tracks like “Next Order,” and “Middle Finger,” along with two full EPs. Since then, Dog Blood has resurfaced for a few rare performances but have largely been silent on the new music front. Whether this latest footage means that may be changing soon is still unclear, but the pretense of a new solo album as well as new Dog Blood material would certainly be an epic destination for the Skrillex hype train.

Move over Swedish House Mafia, there’s another electronic act that’s hot on the comeback trail.

Gesaffelstein‘s three year hiatus is officially coming to an end, with the French luminary recently finalizing a deal with Columbia Records for a comeback campaign due to begin any minute now.

The first sign of Mike Lévy’s potential resurfacing came with a grip of mysterious billboards that cropped up in major cities across the globe. Shortly thereafter, the news of a newly inked Columbia co-sign essentially sealed the deal. Now, we have a brief, tantalizing taste of what Gesaffelstein is working on. So far, it is unclear whether the “Control Movement” producer is gearing up to deliver a long-awaited follow up to Alephor if his resurgence will bring an entirely new line of work, though a video posted to Gesaffelstein’s newly revamped social media pages might give the first glimpse into what we can actually expect to hear on the fully actualized upcoming project.

The clip is short and sweet, leaving a lot of room for intrigue, though the tense, glitchy build is already enough of a hair-raiser for fans eager awaiting Gesaffelstein’s impending return. Stay tuned.

REZZ’s dazzling Red Rocks debut is ready for streaming in full [Watch]

REZZ’s dazzling Red Rocks debut is ready for streaming in full [Watch]Rezz Red Rocks Full Set Stream 1

To say 2018 has been REZZ‘s year could easily discredit her exemplary 2017, which included her chilling Mass Manipulation debut LP; nonetheless, the past 10 months have been stratospheric for mau5trap‘s breakout star.

Another album, another headlining tour, a visual mixtape, and a high-profile slot at seemingly every stateside festival helped make her an emblematic name in dance music, summoning throngs of swirly-eyed fans. However, according to REZZ herself, the current highlight of the year and biggest night of her life so far was her headlining performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Now, fans can relive the devilish magic of “Rezz Rocks” (or experience it for the first time), with her full HD upload of the set.

The sold out performance saw REZZ run through early classics, heaters from her two albums and fan favorite remixes, accompanied by fleets of lasers, a towering video screen, and her hallmark, tripped-out visuals. Colorado’s characteristically icy atmosphere couldn’t dampen the night, which was truly an extraterrestrial testament to her unequivocally loyal following.
