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.

DA Presents: ’30 Days of Fright’ featuring REZZ, Gesaffelstein, Noisia, Drezo, and more [Playlist]SPOOKS PLAYLIST 1

Grab a mask, slam back some candy corn, and get primed to get spooky: it’s October and officially witching season. Electronic music fanatics might be creatures of the night all year round, but there’s something so undeniably righteous about the Halloween season that makes the rapturous roar of dance music even more spellbinding. Whether in the form of diabolic dubstep or demonically deviant techno, the advent of electronic music has given the world some of its most truly terrifying tunes. In that vein, the Dancing Astronaut terror squad is proud to present 30 Days of Fright, our most dastardly dance music favorites for the spookiest month of the year.

By Asher Norris and Bella Bagshaw 


Surrender your consciousness and step inside REZZ‘s world of swirling asphyxia with “Relax.”

Feel your blood begin to bubble and your pulse hectically hasten as BlackGummy and Brooks’s “Neverdeader” breathes a bit of electronic hellfire.

Stream if you dare, as this flame-throwing dubstep track from Kill The Noise, “Black Magic,” will leave your eardrums scorched, but entirely satiated.

Zeds Dead offers up the score for entertainment of the entirely un-dead variety with their timelessly terrifying, “Demons.”

Careful – Megan James’s delectably delicate voice may seem perfectly benevolent, but make no mistake: lofty pipes like hers are witchy by nature.

ZHU plays maestro for all things that boogie and bump in the night with “Nightcrawler.”

Taste the psychedelic strangeness of An-Ten-Nae and Alice D.’s “Raindrops On Roses,” and fall into their preternatural purgatory.

Ever wanted to dance with the devil himself? Habstrakt‘s harrowing house track, “She Goes,” is an opportunity to do just that.

Zomboy invites you to venture through his dubstep-riddled zombie apocalypse with “Ressurected.”

Crowned prince of menacing sound design, Drezo sprinkles a ghastly vocal cut and some unearthly growls in one of his most downright evil releases, “Dead.”

Ivy Lab puts a wickedly delicious spin on an already-crazed Noisia classic, “Tentacles.”

Bask in the eerie ecstasy of Eekkoo and Forrest’s pulsating house production, “Preach.”

NERO solidifies their title as masters of destruction and drum ‘n’ bass with “Doomsday.”

Slithering and psychotic, Noisia’s “Lilith’s Club” will summon spooky sentiments from listeners across the board.

Catch a case of the techno scaries with Gesaffelstein‘s devilishly danceable “Viol.”

Magic Sword wields triumphant electrowave, “In The Face Of Evil,” to fend off even the most nefarious of forces in the days leading up to this All Hallow’s Eve.

Phantogram‘s off-kilter ambiance from “Funeral Pyre,” is the ideal supernatural soundscape, topped with seductive static and levitation-inducing guitar chords.

An undoubtedly foreseen, but fundamental addition to the list, deadmau5‘s “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” keeps the freaky, phantasmic fun flying all season long.


Float through the ectoplasm of The Upside Down with this exquisitely melodic synthwave track direct from the second Stranger Things soundtrack.

We’re not really sure what Moody Good is investigating in the malignantly-sampled “This Is The Investigation,” but we’re pretty sure it’s not natural.

Step inside Pryda‘s low-lit techno tunnel and experience the roaring mania of “Rebel XX.”

Those with a predilection for the creepy crawly end of the electronic continuum need only submit themselves to Knife Party‘s iconic “Centipede.”

Street Fever’s winding techno musings inside “Dispose” may be simplistic, but they’ll leave listeners reeling with haunted rejoice.

Feed Me‘s two-headed trap/dubstep hybrid “Pink Lady” will have you seeing phantom strobes well into the afterlife.

It’s virtually impossible to overload on REZZ tracks during any month, but it’s especially tricky this time of year. Her immortal state of “Delusion” thrusts listeners below ground, where the most formidable forces can frolic freely.

Virtual Riot unleashes a bloodcurdling, cinematic ruckus with zombie-apocalypse-themed, “Haunted.”

Names are not at all deceiving as Shadient takes Wavedash and Quest‘s unnervingly vocalized “Devil Music” for ransom.

Coast the un-departed synth-pop streets of Dance With The Dead’s chillingly regal “Nightdrive.”

Spirits loom overhead, as Stephan Bodzin’s “Singularity” permeates shuddersome sounds of uncertainty.

The evil computers of the underworld unite on Knife Party’s riot-conjuring, “Internet Friends.”


There’s too many spooky dance cuts to round up all at once, alas, we’ve got you going with a pretty good start. Keep the spooks in rotation all month long, and don’t forget to mix in “Monster Mash” a few times to get into the spirit of things this season. Stream the full 30 Days of Fright collection below.

Snails drops a filthy remix of his own ‘WFSU’ with Virtual Riot ft Waka Flocka Flame

Snails drops a filthy remix of his own ‘WFSU’ with Virtual Riot ft Waka Flocka FlameSnails Virtual Riot Remi

Snails has released the third project from his The Shell remix album. It’s a remix done by himself and Virtual Riot of “WFSU” featuring Waka Flocka Flame. Whereas the original sounds like a caterpillar is attacking the city, Virtual Riot and Snails contrast Waka Flocka’s hype vocals with hard-hitting, slimy dubstep. Headbangers will be inclined to break the rail on this one, as the drop is not for the faint-hearted and might cause mosh pits. Gargling growls, slimy synths, and volatile bass sludge the hook while while Waka Flocka’s ad libs add fire to the flame.

Previous remixes this month consist of FuntCase‘s “Forever” and Megalodon‘s “Russian Roulette.” From the sounds of it, Snails seems to be upping the energy from his already energetic debut album.

Panda Eyes, Barely Alive, and Virtual Riot smash their new collab, ‘Triforce’

This post was originally published on this site

Panda Eyes, Barely Alive, and Virtual Riot team up for the glittery dubstep collaboration, “Triforce.” With video game synths, happy horns, lush keys, and twinkling arpeggios, the track starts off in a blissful state before shifting towards the dark side. There’s a stark contrast between the verse and hook, using a Skrillex-esque vocal build that unwinds into old-school dubstep.

Panda Eyes makes his Disciple Records debut alongside label alumni, Barely Alive and Virtual Riot. Each combine their gritty bass sound design to create this headbanging oasis of unadulterated joy and grit.

The 22-year-old Swiss bass producer teamed up with dubstep veterans in anticipation of his Isolation EP. Barley Alive and Virtual Riot are regular collaborators, so adding Panda Eyes to the mix must be a nod to the label newcomer.

Virtual Riot proves dubstep’s not dead in new EP, ‘German Engineering’

This post was originally published on this site

For his latest release, Virtual Riot revs up the intensity with a six-track compilation that shows him flexing the heavier side of his production style.

German Engineering takes off straight out of the gate, opening with the ferocious “Pray For Riddim.” Virus Syndicate lend a hand in “Show Up,” incorporating energized rap and hip-hop elements into Virtual Riot’s production. As the EP continues through tracks like “Chop Chop” and “Jump The Gun,” Virtual Riot proves the grimiest of dubstep is here to stay.

A slight wind-down begins to take shape in the EP’s later two tracks, as “Komputermusik” — while still heavy on the bass and dubstep elements — incorporates soothing piano melodies into its verses. The final track of German Engineering, “The Darkest Night,” leans into the melodic side of Virtual Riot’s production with playful, choppy vocals and a simple bass-infused melody. He closes out the EP on a high note, reminding listeners just how broad his style range truly is.

German Engineering is out now on Disciple Records.

 

Datsik & Virtual Riot – Warriors of the Night

Two certifiable bass maestros have combined forces for a grueling, riddim-inspired festival tune.

“Warriors of the Night” amalgamates Datisk‘s heavy set bass lines with Virtual Riot‘s snarling synths in a sonic concoction that is certain to have bass heads across the country leaning and rocking come festival season. The track comes on the heels of Datsik’s collaboration with 1000volts on “Monster” back in August. Recently, Datsik has been trying his hand experimenting with the alter ego known as Ephwurd. Virtual Riot recently turned heads with his satirical outline of ‘EDM News in 2055’ and the VIP release of his track “Everyday”.

Monstercat alum Virtual Riot offers a potential shape for “EDM News in 2055” in a recent slew of tweets that show shades of the producer’s futuristic sense of humor.

Highlights of Virtual Riot’s vision of the electronic future include a “half-robotdinosaur-half-human surgery” for Excision, a Skism-secured Guinness World Record for a 20 CDJ-supported set, and the sale of EDC Las Vegas “virtual reality tickets,” for tech-transcendent “owls.”

Virtual Riot is finishing off 2017 strong with a fiery VIP mix of his summer track “Everyday.”

The song, which came out in July, was a light and breezy tune that showed a softer side of the versatile producer. Featuring the alluring vocals of Yosie, “Everyday” captured a perfect summer vibe.

Months later, Virtual Riot has released a VIP mix of the song — one that’s much heavier than the original it’s derived from.

The VIP mix starts off much the same as the original: focused on Yosie’s soothing vocals over a lighthearted bed of synths. Virtual Riot builds to something much more formidable, though, as he takes the listener through a bridge that contains elements of drum & bass. The first drop is hard-hitting heavy bass and dubstep, while the second drop leans more to trap stylings.

The VIP mix serves has a perfect showcase for the variety of genres the artist is well-versed at producing.
