Rusko to release new EP on Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats imprint, plots return to old-school dubstep with ‘Squeeze’Rusko

Rusko is releasing a new five-track EP on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats label, teasing the inbound project with a single that returns to his UK dubstep roots, “Squeeze.” In fact, the venerated dubstep flag-bearer looks to explore this theme throughout the entirety of his upcoming extended play. The final EP cut was decided at Lost Lands Festival, an opportunity Rusko took in 2018 to test a big batch of new music. The songs that performed the best made it on the project.

“Squeeze” hits listeners with a reggae bounce and melody while Rusko’s signature gritty synth drives the track. He told Billboard in a recent interview that he’s trying to put the “dub” back in dubstep and focus on melody, breaking from the popular hardcore riddim bass. “It’s a deliberate attempt to to rekindle those fires of the old vibe,” says the “Woo Boost” vet.

Rusko also mentioned he has a collaborations with Bassnectar (about time) and Ducky in the works. The EP is set to drop in full this spring. Hear “Squeeze” below.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 160, ‘Unlikely Contenders’ with Zeds Dead, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, + more

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 160, ‘Unlikely Contenders’ with Zeds Dead, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, + moreSMM 2400

Bass music’s omnipresent ringleader, Bassnectar, kicks off this week’s edition of Sunday Morning Medicine, Unlikely Contenders. The hair-thrashing dubstep maestro’s older catalog is brimming with spaced-out downtempo (most notably selections from Mesmerizing the Ultra of 2005 and Underground Communication of 2007). “Laughter Crescendo,” from his more recent Vava Voom (2012) with its splashy, rippling ambience, is a surefire way to catch a dose of the acid giggles this Sunday Morning.

Pretty Lights is, and always has been, one of those rare artists who can sew old-school extremities to new-school infrastructure. Taken from his token analog electronica record, A Color Map of the Sun, is the halcyon happy song “Yellow Bird.” Let Pretty Lights heal all weekend wounds, with the track’s recoiling, instrument-abound hip-hop loop, winding like the vulnerable wrapping of an emotional bandage.

Despite his recent delve into heavy riddim dubstep, Virtual Riot has released some truly tender and melodic tracks over the years, from liquid drum ‘n’ bass to glitchy future bass. This week’s selection, “Pixel Forest,” resides with the latter. The pixelated lead synth and pitched-up vocal samples are the ideal recipe for a Sunday spent sitting in front of the Nintendo.

Zeds Dead aka “The Boys,” are categorical softies. Inside nearly every ear-pummeling dubstep production from these two is a poignant center (“Collapse 2.0,” “Shut Up & Sing V2.0,” “Blink”). A raw demonstration of this emotional vigor, “Slow Down,” featuring Jenna Pemkowski, is a stripped-back, downtempo middle finger to those who aim to pigeonhole Zeds Dead inside any one genre. The track also serves as a tender crescendo to their most recent album, Northern Lights, and outro to their second edition of their Catching Z’s mix series: an entrancing outlet for their softer sounds. Oh, and it’s not bad for a Sunday detox, either. For optimal results, pair with a fruit rainbow and multi-vitamin.

Capping off Unlikely Contenders is the “Head Splitter” himself, Getter. The Californian recently renounced his post among the scene’s most fearsome bass savages, divulging into his need for “Something New,” and freeing himself from the confines of his former image. The fluttery track is an expedient Sunday vessel into uncharted and untainted bodily terrain.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is back to dominating the headlines thanks to an all-encompassing, star-abundant collection of artists who will be performing at the 2019 iteration of the Indio, CA-based music festival. The next chapter of the legendary soiree has not met the media’s gaze without its fair share of controversy, mainly Kanye West dropping out of the lineup due to what he recently referred to as “artistically limiting” stage design.

On a brighter note, 2019 will be the first year fans will be able to live stream the festival for both weekend one and two. In previous years, fans were limited to the festival’s first weekend exclusively for streaming capabilities. Now fans across the world will be able to watch back-to-back weekends of acts including DJ Snake, Kayzo, Bassnectar, Ariana Grande, and more. The live streaming for Coachella 2019 commences the first weekend, April 12th-14th, rolling all the way through to the next, which spans April 19th-21st.

Electric Forest is pulling out all the stops for their single 2019 edition. The festival recently scaled back their two weekend offering back to their original one weekend format, though organizers were quick to even it out with the delivery of 2019’s lineup. To say next year’s billing is stacked would be an understatement — ODESZA, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zeds Dead are holding down headlining duties, with festival favorites The String Cheese Incident returning for a three-night run. The under card features a mile-long list of talent headed to Rothbury, Michigan including Claude VonStroke, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, Lettuce, Ekali, Whethan, Gramatik and many more across June 27 – 30.

SLANDER and NGHTMRE are billed for a GUD VIBRATIONS label showcase, with Snails, TOKiMONSTA, The Knocks, and Bloodpop all slated for Electric Forest 2019 as well. Live sets from Gorgon City, Pnuma, and Ookay are expected, along with jam band flavors and a healthy serving of hip-hop from T-Pain. See Electric Forest 2019’s full lineup below.

Tom Morello has released his first-ever solo album under his own name, entitled The Atlas Underground. As an undisputed rock icon and top guitarist, Morello has led bands like Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and now Prophets of Rage to success through making music that centers around raw, real emotion. Now, the Guitar Hero III boss has made it his mission to join together the energy behind rock music together with modern electronic dance music through a collaborative, focused album.

Enlisting artists from the electronic world that inspire him, Morello has created an album that bridges a gap between a generation of those who grew up when rock music was king, and those who have been raised at the height of electronic music’s success. For the latter, Morello explained in conversation with Zane Lowe at his Los Angeles stop of The Atlas Underground Experience that his intention with this album is to “inflict” the energy of guitars onto the next generation, inspiring future rockstars along the way. Working with stand-out artists like Knife Party, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Steve Aoki and K.Flay, Morello has created something true to himself in its motivations in social justice. Not only that, but the music succeeds at its intention to make us both rock out and dance.

I stumbled upon a dnb remix of Pendulum’s Granite by a newcomer Reaper. I absolutely love that people can seemingly come from thin air and produce such quality music. Artists such as 1788-L, SWARM, i_o, all have burst on the scene dropping straight fire; You can add Reaper to that list. With under 1k followers

Another National Voter Registration Day has come and gone in the US. This year, a sundry of the electronic circuit’s top-drawer DJs and producers observed the holiday, which falls on the fourth Tuesday of every September, by encouraging their own constituents (listeners) to exercise their right to vote.

With a number of high-stakes US Congressional seats up for grabs this year in the often overlooked mid-term elections, artists like ODESZAMoby, Bassnectar, and Kill The Noise took to Twitter to acknowledge what’s at stake. This year, registering is easier than ever, with not only Google, but social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit helping to streamline the process by hosting registration links in various sections of their respective interfaces. So whether you’re a hardcore rail-rider or a laid-back electronica enthusiast, electronic lovers of all shapes and sizes can and should employ their ability to have a say in government.
