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

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.

Virtual Riot – Degenerates

This post was originally published on this site

Virtual Riot is virtually unstoppable. With dubstep hard-hitters like “Juices,” “Throwin’ Elbows,” and “Alien,” Virtual Riot continues to impress us with his impeccable ability to maneuver his way through the audio spectrum, curating perfectly crafted bass and dubstep wobbles. Now, he’s released yet another dubstep arrangement called “Degenerates.”

Don’t be misled by the beautiful introductory piano. The strings fade in and complement the piano, but the build shortly follows, bringing in orchestral horns, an arpeggio and epic cinematic drums. Virtual Riot builds “Degenerates” up superbly, letting everything go in the drop with his inevitable hard-hitting sound.
