Igloofest makes its imprint on the international music festival scene with its signature, trademark characteristic—embracing the arctic climate known as Canadian winters. The Montréal-based festival has just announced its 2020 season lineup, amassing a proudly diverse selection of male and female artists to top each of the four weekends of its outdoor winter series.

For its upcoming 14th edition, Igloofest welcomes a new slate of headliners over each weekend, held from Jan. 16 – Feb. 8, 2020. The opening weekend kicks off performances from headliners THE BLAZE, ANNA, Reinier Zonneveld, and curated stage takeover from Anjunabeats—with a lineup to be announced. Over the remaining three weekends, the festival’s headliners include REZZ, Nina Kraviz, RÜFÜS DU SOL, ZEDS DEAD, and Charlotte De Witte to close out each chilly night of the series.

Among the headlining performances, Igloofest welcomes an abundance of varied local and international support from artists like i_o, VNSSA, Jeremy Olander, Honey Soundsystem, Robert Hood, and many others. Held in the charismatic grounds of the city’s Old Port, the festival will debut a redesigned layout to increase their capacity, filled with handfuls of activities, treats and vendors within the magical Igloovillage and increased heated IGLOOVIP areas.

Good Morning Mix: Listen to NGHTMRE’s unrelenting Lost Lands SetNGHTMRE Lean Back

Excision’s Lost Lands has been bass lovers’ haven since 2017, and the 2019 iteration of the festival proved to be no exception. Excision played an unrelenting two-hour lone set in addition to a b2b with Illenium, while other heavy-hitting acts during the festival included Zeds Dead, Borgore, NGHTMRE and more. The event took place between September 27-29, and some of the artists are now slowly releasing their full festival sets for fans to relive.

NGHTMRE is one of said artists, and the LA-based producer has now released his set from the festival for free download via his Soundcloud. The seventy-five-minute set is filled with dubstep and bass that will appeal to fans of heavy-hitting live sets.

NGHTMRE’s style has grown increasingly experimental and diverse over the years. He first became known for his expertise in purely low-end records that riled his crowds, but since then has delved into the realms of hip-hop, and even rock. The producer recently teamed up with Grabbitz for emotive single “Bruises” proving that despite a heavy tour schedule, new music is still always in his pipeline. Those who are craving an energetic start to their day can find the perfect morning mix in NGHTMRE’s Lost Lands set.

Eprom delivers hyperactive new single, ‘Hope,’ on Deadbeats

Eprom delivers hyperactive new single, ‘Hope,’ on DeadbeatsTH 0334

As oh so many of its purveyors attest, the term “bass music” is hard to define. After all, bass is nothing more than the lower range of frequencies. Everything from a human voice to a revving engine uses them. So if an artist is going to adopt this term for their music and still stand out, they have to morph the bass into something digestible and enjoyable.

That is what Eprom has done yet again on his latest single, “Hope.” Once again being released on Deadbeats, label bosses Zeds Dead give free rein to Eprom to insert a wide variety of feelings and emotions into his generally grueling style. White-hot flashes of vocals and drum breaks are aligned alongside kick hits that would rumble the foundation of any venue lucky enough to hose Eprom for a show.

It’s not just about the sounds themselves on this track either. Eprom also displays his understanding of restraint, incorporating space that allows sonic ideas to evolve and diminish, making for truly standout piece of music.

Oliver Tree gets the Zeds Dead treatment on ‘Miracle Man’

Zeds Dead has paired with Oliver Tree for an epic rework of “Miracle Man,” the hit song off his sophomore EP, Do You Feel Me? Utilizing their specialty, the Canadian label bosses and masters of bass apply their heavy wiring synths and drowsy sustain to Oliver Tree’s indie-punk cadence. This big, sensational bass and synth play can also be heard on Zeds Dead’s remix of Diplo and Ellie Goulding’s “Close To Me” featuring Swae Lee and most notably, on their infamous “Eyes On Fire” remix.

Alt-pop’s jovial troll sings and raps angrily about someone who didn’t try hard enough and messed up their life. The honest and irate message pairs nicely with the heavy, brooding sound from the legendary bass music trendsetters.  

Zeds Dead have released music with Funkin Matt, Jauz, DROELOE, Dion Timmer, and Delta Heavy this year—an eclectic repertoire of elite talent carefully curated by established veterans.

Zeds Dead continue their collaboration streak, releasing a project alongside Funkin Matt, “Feel So,” featuring Fiora through Spinnin’ Records. The track showcases a different side to the Canadian duo’s illustrious catalog, taking advantage of Funkin Matt’s groovy electro play with a running synth and dissident vocals that bring a futuristic ’80s atmosphere also supported by the track artwork.  

While the Deadbeats duo normally drops music through their own imprint, this track takes a turn into an alternate space from their previous collaborations including DROELOE on “Stars Tonight,” highlighting their versatility while still maintaining that sound that made them Zeds Dead.  

The Deadbeats tour has been taking names and presenting some of the baddest names in bass music such as Rusko, G Jones, Lick, DROELOE, Peekaboo, 1788-L, Zeke Beats, and many more.

Zeke Beats and G-Rex collide on bass-heavy ‘Purple Haze’

This post was originally published on this site

Since its launch, Zeds Dead‘s label, Deadbeats, has been driving the conversation on bass music. Rather than adhering to a specific sub-genre in the low-end umbrella, the label focuses on an overall sound and energy in its releases.

Zeke Beats is a mainstay on this label, and his diversity as a producer makes him a perfect fit. Now, he has brought another talented bass-wizard into the fold who goes by the name of G-Rex for a new, heavy single entitled “Purple Haze.”

“Purple Haze” alludes to Zeds Dead’s love of dubstep, but maintains a level of originality that can only be produced the first time two artists work together. Hopefully there will be more to come in the future of this duo.
