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.

Black Tiger Sex Machine and YOOKiE release bass-rattling single, ‘Snakes’Black Tiger Se Machine Yookie

Black Tiger Sex Machine and YOOKiE have released their new collaboration, “Snakes,” which rocked Lost Lands stages last weekend weekend. The song released off BTSM’s Kannibalen Records starts with a nature documentarian introducing the snake from the point of view of a frightened animal. Electronic synths sinisterly slither between hard-hitting percussion and bass ad libs. An alarm goes off to set the warning sign of what’s to come next: a king cobra with venomous sustained bass and bouts of deafening silence in the sound space. Bass heads will rejoice within the confines of this forward thinking low end statement.

Black Tiger Sex Machine are following up their sophomore album, New Worlds, with this epic collaboration alongside YOOKiE. The trio is set to embark on their headlining tour this fall, Part II of the Ceremony Tour.

To coincide with their EDC Las Vegas appearances this past week, powerhouse production duo SLANDER and NY-based brother duo YOOKiE recently dusted off their joint track, “One Life,” featuring Zach Sorgen. Following the weekend, YOOKiE dropped a surprise VIP, out now via Spinnin Records.

YOOKiE breathes new life into the original single that pushed the boundaries of genre and experimentation. Pairing the euphoric melody of the original with a unique, bass-infused touch, the producers live up to their reputation as one of the bass scene’s most unpredictable acts. YOOKiE says of the track:

“We really wanted to switch the vibes up for ‘One Life,’ so we made this deep VIP. It’s a culmination of what we’re into right now and we hope you dig it.”

The remix has already gained support from Excision and Slander, amongst others, and was featured as part of YOOKiE’s recent guest mix for BBC Radio 1 with Annie Nightingale.

PhaseOne x YOOKiE – State Of Emergency

This post was originally published on this site

Less than a month after releasing a massive remix of Dillon Francis and NGHTMRE on Mad Decent, duo YOOKiE have teamed up with fellow dubstep heavy-hitter PhaseOne for “State Of Emergency.”

Frantic breathing and a ringing phone usher in the track’s introduction, with anguished screams arriving as the build starts to increase. “911, what is your emergency?” leads into a filthy dubstep drop, layered with a hefty dosage of wubs.

From start to finish, “State Of Emergency” is an intensely haunting bass journey, packed with panic and absolutely filthy bass. It will be featured on PhaseOne’s forthcoming EP, Double Up.

NGHTMRE & Dillon Francis – Another Dimension (YOOKiE Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

New York-based producing duo YOOKiE released a highly energetic remix of NGHTMRE and Dillon Francis‘ “Another Dimension.” The artists emphatically showcase a sound that deviates from the original by adding slower beats in the drop that are saturated with intense throttles of bass and peaks of synth. NGHTMRE and Dillon Francis’ creation features a heavier dubstep sound, while YOOKiE adds more of a trap style with rumbling kicks and rhythmic, distorted vocals.

YOOKiE is known for their revved up tone categorized by infectious layers of sound seamlessly placed together to create lively, yet edgy productions which make groovin along irresistible. With dramatic builds and thrilling climaxes, YOOKiE keeps listeners on their toes for the entire duration of each track they master. YOOKiE’s intriguing take on NGHTMRE and Dillon Francis’ “Another Dimension” will undoubtedly have listeners craving more from the innovative artists.

Just days after the release of “Dinner Chat” with Jauz and josh pan, New York brother duo YOOKiE have released a formidable single called “Project 9.”

The brothers say “Project 9” is representative of  their “bass music mantra from its very core,” something that’s unabashedly apparent from the get-go. With an intense build that burgeons from the first few seconds of the track, “Project 9” drops the listener into a chorus of heavy, bone-rattling bass. The duo lead their listeners through the track’s three-minute length, drenching them in elements of trap, dubstep, and everything in between.

With bass so deep it’ll shake you to your core, YOOKiE hold nothing back on “Project 9.”

The track is out March 14 via Bassrush.

Jauz, YOOKiE, and josh pan team up for experimental ‘Dinner Chat’

Jauz-Yookie-JoshPan-DinnerChat

The trio of Jauz, YOOKiE, and josh pan make for a fascinating group on the surface, and their collaborative effort, “Dinner Chat” lives up to the intrigue. A diverse affair, “Dinner Chat” sees each producer stretch outside of their comfort zone while at the same time maintaining their signature styles.

A simple, whistled melody opens the track before a chopped vocal hook grabs the listener. A breakbeat build up — complete with 90s-inspired synth stabs — culminates in a rolling, experimental, moombahton-tinged drop. A second drop sees the triumvirate throw a curveball, with a half-time section more inclined to grooves than headbanging.

Released on Jauz’s label, Bite This, “Dinner Chat” is a fine example of three talented artists playing off each other to craft a unique track that is sure to stick out in a crowded market.

Enter Black Tiger Sex Machine’s sci-fi world in new album [Interview]

For years, Canadian trio Black Tiger Sex Machine have pushed the bass music envelope, often going deeper, darker, and weirder than anyone else in the scene.

On Friday, March 2, the Kannibalen Records founders released their sophomore album, New Worlds. They’ve teamed up with labelmates and friends across the album’s 10 songs, with each track bringing fresh and exciting angles to their sound.

Members Marc Chagnon, Julien Maranda and Patrick Barry talked with DA about the process behind the album, their BTSM Church community, and what’s next for them this year.

What can fans expect from New Worlds?

New Worlds is an album about discovery and uncertainty over what the future holds. It’s very dramatic and intense; there is a lot of tension in all the songs. All 10 tracks are very hard-hitting, with a lot of sci-fi movie influences, a lot of orchestral elements. We made all the tracks so that we could play them out live, but also wanted them to work in non-dancefloor settings, so we put a lot time into giving each one unique textures and depth. It’s got amazing contributions from other artists like YOOKiE, Apashe, Sullivan King, Lektrique, Kai Wachi, Panther and Macntaj.

How does it differ from Welcome to Our Church?

The album is more consistent overall. We didn’t necessarily stick to one genre of music but there is a certain degree of unity in the sound of the album. We’ve just matured over time as producers and songwriters so we feel the quality in general is better. We’re also telling a more complex story with New Worlds. There’s an entire world we’re opening to people with this LP. When you click play on the first song you’re entering our sci-fi world. We just shot a video for “Zombie” that ties into the story, along with all the visuals for our upcoming tour, so everything comes together to create a fully immersive experience.

What has reception been like for the first few singles from the album?

Reception has been amazing; we’re feeling great ahead of the full album release. The singles “Lions” with YOOKiE, “Zombie” featuring Panther and Madness with Sullivan King made big waves with our fans and bass lovers. The style and direction seem to have pleased fans and that’s all we could ask for.

What’s coming up for you guys in 2018?

On the album release day, the new Ceremony Tour kicks off also. We’re bringing our revamped stage to 20+ cities across North America. We’ve got a lot of the Kannibalen fam on the road with us. Kai Wachi, Lektrique, Sullivan King and Apashe will all be making appearances. After the tour we have a bunch of festivals as well as our first Asia tour which we are super pumped about!

Any tour dates in particular you’re looking forward to?

Our return to EDC is one of shows we’re super hyped on. Last year was magical and was huge for our career. We can’t wait to see how this year turns out. We’re super excited for our tour; we’re adding new gear to the production and we’ve been working hard on the lights and video programming for weeks now.

How has the BTSM Church community evolved over the years?

It’s grown into a great community where people support each other in many ways. The BTSM Church group on Facebook is very active. Everyday we read about people getting through challenging life experiences using our music. People are more and more open about sharing their issues with the BTSM Church community cause they know they will get love and support back from us and other fans. We’re a big family and the support fans show other fans is very moving. When we first started up until now, we always put our focus on the fans, because they are the reason we get to do this day in day out.

What are you excited about in the dance/electronic music community right now?

We feel the scene has been maturing a lot and that has enabled tons of original acts and sub-genres to come forward. We feel electronic music fans are becoming more and more educated and are looking for more originality from artists, and don’t want to keep listening to the same trendy sound. As artists we want to keep evolving, and sometimes that means taking risks. Knowing the fans support us in doing so is really encouraging, because at the end of the day, we want to create music that they will enjoy.


New Worlds is out now on Kannibalen Records.

Zeds Dead unveil heavy ‘Deadbeats Compilation 2’ LP

This post was originally published on this site

When Zeds Dead announced their very own indie imprint in spring 2016, the Toronto-based dubstep pioneers were essentially making their foray into the broader sounds of bass music. Not even one year later, the iconic duo would release their first Deadbeats compilation, further solidifying the then-blossoming careers of Nebbra, REZZ, and Megalodon, among others. Along with their weekly Deadbeats Radio series, the continual hard work and ruthless output of Dylan Mamid and Zach Rapp-Rovan is beyond human.

Zeds Dead now unveils another label compilation to give fans a taste for the evolving sounds coming out of Deadbeats Records. Dubbed Deadbeats Compilation 2, the LP offers up 10 brand new tracks that explore the heavier side of bass music. Busy, stabbing synths, aggressive 808s, and garage house arpeggios mark the sonic landscape of the album. One of the standout tracks of the LP, “Freestyle Flow,” comes from trap newcomer Schlump, with its outer space-inspired sound design and otherworldly appeal.

From dubstep and grime-inspired tracks like YOOKiE‘s “Intruder Alert” and Champagne Drip‘s “Industry Black” to the bass house offerings of Nebbra’s “Get Busy” and “Bop It” from Astronomer, the entire compilation seems to spotlight the stylistic direction Mamid and Rapp-Rovan envision for their line of bass music.

Slander & Yookie – One Life feat. Zach Sorgen (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

After releasing a collaboration earlier in 2017, Slander and Yookie have rejoined again to release their latest work — a single by the name of “One Life”. Deviating away from their bass-heavy roots that characterized their sounds, both acts have worked together to bring out a softer, feel-good approach to this song.

Overlapping with upbeat vocals from LA singer Zach Sorgen, this playful track uses an animated melody to work with its underlying vibrating bassline, similar to Marshmello‘s signature sound style. Using the vocals to transform this piece into a dreamy piece on every music seekers playlist, “One Life” strays away from the thrashing bass-lines and shows fans a softer side to these two groups.
