Bear Grillz – Drop That

This post was originally published on this site

For years, the EDM world speculated over the identity of nonsensical Firepower producer, Bear Grillz, setting the scene ablaze. He  first turned heads in 2013 after he was featured smoking a joint, and middle finger erect. It wasn’t until 2016 when he took to none other than  Jerry Springer to unveil the man behind the cartoon bear.

The Bear Grillz phenomenon has grown a cult-like following based around his outlandish persona and fondness for trolling EDM and its off-the-wall culture, most notably in his breakout track “EDM,” within which a girl exclaims she’s just “died a little bit inside” because her friend didn’t know what dubstep was.

His newest track, “Drop That” is not for the faint of dub-devotees. It’s thrashing guitar riffs, heavy metal death growls, and pounding snares are likely to assemble hair-whipping riots near and far.

Stream Daktyl’s 7-track ‘Riyaaz’ EP

Daktyl has continued to climb new heights after bursting into the EDM-sphere with superb remixes to records like Autograf’s “Metaphysical” and Flosstrodamus’ “Rebound,” and also with last summer’s career-defining release of his Act of Hesitation EP.

Now, the LA-based producer and multi-instrumentalist returns with his second major project signed to Counter Records. The seven-piece effort is aptly titled Riyaaz, after an Urdu expression meaning to practice something you love musically every day — a process which shines in the detail of his well-crafted, diverse project.

Riyaaz takes on a more personal and stripped down approach than Daktyl’s previous records; for instance, in the use of his own vocals and world instrumentation on the single, “Commit,” and in the brooding beats and sweeping, reflective vocals of “Monochrome,” featuring MOONz.

The blossoming talent had the following to say about the significance of the project for his life and how listeners can utilize it’s messages for their own lives.

“This EP is about the love of making music, but also about the sacrifice that that can entail” explains Daktyl. “[E]very individual can take what they want or need from a song… it can mean something different to everyone”.

Currently on tour with Big Wild — which tops an already impressive roster of past live/DJ tours with BonoboPetit BiscuitTroy Boi and Hotel Garuda — Daktyl has set the bar high for his lucid line of bass heavy beat making.

Ganja White Night explore the dynamic depths of low end bass in seventh LP, ‘The Origins’ [Interview + Album Review]

This post was originally published on this site

Who exactly is Mr Wobble?

It’s question that has been on the minds of many since Ganja White Night released a series of music videos late last year. One that has answers partly in the release of their newest and most ambitious album to date, dubbed The Origins, out now on their own imprint SubCarbon Records

“We created SubCarbon when we started making music because it was the only way we could be released. Big labels weren’t interested in our sounds.” 

 February 2018 saw Benjamin Bayeul and Charlie Dodson’s seventh LP since they extensively explored their riddim-inspired sound almost 12 years ago. “We’ve tried to release an album every year since we started in 2010,” said the two Brussels-based producers. They wanted to do everything but rush The Origins album, which the pair had been working on since the fall of 2016, so as to avoid making the twelve track compilation more than just a shallow “collection of easy-to-mix tracks.”

The Origins LP is anything but shallow. The album takes a deep dive in many ways.

First, it’s a dive into re-examining their own roots; a new exploration of the hypnotic, immersive sounds that incapsulated fans many years ago. Cinematic intros, playful experimentation, and otherworldly sounds mark the album’s landscape. In a lot of ways, The Origins is an intoxicating ethnic journey with a careful sense of adventure — a psychedelic trip into the worlds of dub, riddim, and low-end bass, more broadly.

Speaking to the evolution of their signature wobble sound, the duo elaborated on how it took them a good amount of time to manifest their ideas into reality: “You can really feel a difference when you listen to our old albums. Sound techniques evolve and the new material sounds more refined. We always had these ideas in our heads, but it’s crazy to see how ideas develop over time into actual sounds.”

 

Second, the album signals a nod to the roots of Mr Wobble, an animated vigilante superhero character designed by long-time collaborator and illustrator Ebo. Mr Wobble has played a role in their work since they released “Wobble Master” and “LFO Requiem.” At the outset of the new LP, he is joined by a whole new cast of characters whereby fans are given a glimpse into the very origins of how their super powers came to be.

“Mr Wobble isn’t the only guy who has the power. In different civilizations, the people receive this power, and what we see in the [Origins] video is how, in this period, of this era, at least, Mr Wobble is using it this way. We still don’t know where this power comes from, or how he’s be chosen, maybe it was an accident, we don’t know.”

 

Finally, the album pulls on the nostalgic allure of ancient ethnocentric sounds. Inspired by composers like Hans Zimmer, Ganja White Night has a way for constructing cinematic bass compositions that incorporate reggae, dubstep, hip-hop, and drum ‘n’ bass, with influences from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. “We have some inspirations that never change,” they say. “We’ve always been fans of ethnic sounds and ethnic voices, long intros, harmonies.”

GWN approaches collaborations in the same artistic spirit. Teaming up with Caspa, in particular, on the album’s second track, “Unique,” the three producers capture the very unique essence upon which their collective visions for bass music resonates — back before the days of violent, head banging “bro-step.” Cinematic, fun, mischievous, and stripped down to the bare bone essentials of bass, the track flips fluidly between it’s melodic breaks and stabbing synths for a hypnotic anthem that is sure to capture fans’ eardrums on the dance floor.

From cosmic introductions to intense party jams and downtempo grooves, the twelve tracks come together to tell a more complete story around Mr Wobble, the superhero who creates music from ancient mythology and uses it to awaken citizens dwelling in the modern world he inhabits. Regarding to expansion of Mr Wobble’s world, Bayeul and Dodson are still exploring the many avenues the vigilante hero may take:

“There is still a lot of mystery, and we don’t want to say too much because we have a lot of projects that we want to go deeper into, we want to do more music videos and comic books. There’s just so many ways to go deeper into the story, there’s a lot of doors open now. We just introduced a lot of characters, so there’s a lot of new avenues to explore.”

The Origins arrives just as Ganja White Night gets ready to embark on their album-accompanying “The Origins Tour.” The duo will travel to 20 US cities featuring strong support from CaspaOpiuoDownlink, along with label mates DirtMonkey and Subtronics. They plan to begin each concert stop with a special B2B DJ set from the SubCarbon roster, before transitioning into the tour openers, and ending with a GWN performance that will feature live instrumentation, editing, remixing, and improvisation much like a band playing all original material.
