Loud Luxury are making like the lyrics of their pervasive single, “Body,” and giving fans “some verbs” with their next move: the release of their highly anticipated new single, “I’m Not Alright.” For their latest, Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace of Loud Luxury partner with fellow producer Bryce Vine on the tune. “I’m Not Alright” is a deviation from the electronic firepower that Loud Luxury unleashed on some of their most recognizable hits, and overall a gravitation towards a more pop-leaning, songwriter-centric format. Loud Luxury separate Vine’s guitar-assisted verses with spunky dance drops that offer a glimmer of the mellower side of Loud Luxury’s constructive ability.

“I’m Not Alright” is the musical brainchild of Loud Luxury’s chance encounter with Vine in Los Angeles. “We met [Vine] at a party…through a friend when we got back from our fall tour,” the duo said.

“The next day, he came over and showed us an idea he [had] that was just a guitar and chorus. During our winter tour we worked across North America in hotel rooms, studios, and even an Uber with our headphones to finish writing the song.”

The serendipitous sonic offering derives from the sentiment that making mistakes is a natural part of being human. “This song is about coming to terms with your flaws,” Loud Luxury added.

The Canadian dance dynamos will embark on their first-ever headlining North American tour alongside special guests, CID, MEDUZA, Bijou, Black Caviar, Dzeko, Midnight Kids, Frank Walker, and Justin Caruso, each of whom will provide city-specific support. Loud Luxury’s expansive live initiative will commence on August 29 in Salt Lake City, Utah. From there, the Armada heavyweights will work their way through no short number of US cities, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, Orlando, Washington, Brooklyn, and many more. Tickets to the NIGHTS LIKE THIS tour are now available, and can be purchased here.

BIJOU unveils newly minted G-House label, Do Not Duplicate Recordings, drops joint EP with Dr. Fresch

BIJOU unveils newly minted G-House label, Do Not Duplicate Recordings, drops joint EP with Dr. FreschBijou Fresch Gangsta Party

G-House hero Dr. Fresch teams up with BIJOU on a new collaborative EP, dubbed Gangsta Party, to celebrate the latter’s newly minted record label, Do Not Duplicate Recordings. The EP combines Dr. Fresch’s infectious basslines with BIJOU’s carefully selected hip-hop vocals for a complementary merging of styles between the two formidable producers. Both tracks fall under the G-House verity, of course, running a blend of hard hitting house rhythms, low octave synths, and infectious vocals.

“Kung Fu” is the first track on the EP, utilizing a wiring synth sound below a mystifying piano melody and chopped hip-hop vocals repeating “let me tell you how I come though with the one two kicking shit like kung fu.” The drop hits with a heavy rubber band bass below its higher octave counterpart for contrast. Alternately, the EP’s second cut, “Too Cocky” opts for a sitar melody from the jump, instantly building anticipation that eventually falls into a heavy-handed, bouncing break.

Do Not Duplicate Recordings ultimately seeks to showcases the rise of the G-House scene by these two producers. The Phoenix, Arizona-native producer’s newly established imprint comes hot off the heels of Dr. Fresch’s recently launched label venture, Prescription Records.

Dr. Fresch celebrates new Prescription label launch with 9-track G-house compilation

Dr. Fresch celebrates new Prescription label launch with 9-track G-house compilation11.9.17 DrFRESCH 020 Edit

Tony Fresch (aka Dr. Fresch) has come a long way since the 2012 launch of his former label, Prep School Recordings. The Prep School launch jump-started Fresch’s career in electronic music, as he wielded the indie imprint to release debut EPs from the now-dignitary Louis The Child, Illenium, and more. Since then, he’s solidified a commendable reputation as both an accomplished DJ and inventive producer, releasing music on upper-echelon dance labels such as OWSLA and Ministry of Sound.

Now, the LA-based curator has announced his newest project: The Prescription Records, a label created auspiciously alongside Insomniac Music Group. The label establishment is the latest extension of Fresch’s Prescription brand, which currently has its own mix series on Sirius XM (now on its 58th episode). Appropriately, in 2013, it was Insomniac which gave Fresch his start as a touring DJ after he won their Discovery Project competition. In many ways, the new imprint cements his six-year relationship with the industry giant.

To celebrate the label’s debut, Prescription Records has released a nine-track compilation featuring 12 unique talents, including Dr. Fresch himself (“Dr. No”), Arizona-based BIJOU (“Smack”), French DJ Tony Romera (“Kill The System”), and more. The compilation cements Fresch’s affinity for bringing novelty and nuance to the contemporary G-House domain, being one of the sub-genre’s original gurus.

Fresch had some remarks on the announcement:

“The Prescription Records is, in every sense, an extension of my artist brand as Dr. Fresch. I’m working with new artists whose music not only fits my style as a producer and DJ, but new artists who I see developing truly groundbreaking sounds in 2019… ‘The Remedy Vol. 1’ is a cohesive project that showcases the label vision from a dozen different artists. These producers pull elements of G-House, Bass House and Electro to solidify a sound I’ve been developing for years – that’s The Prescription.”

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 46

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 46Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


G-house guru BIJOU is back with another sultry heater, “Young & Reckless,” featuring Way. The new Dim Mak record continues the Arizona native’s tour de force through the burgeoning world of g-house. It’s stamped with a relentless bassline and and fierce vocals from Way. “The vocal with Way came from a long-standing relationship I’ve had with his manager that started out with me buying shoes from him at Finish Line,” BIJOU says of the track. “Fast forward to today and we have worked on numerous tracks together with this one being hands down our best.”


This week’s drum & bass find got me addicted so quickly. Foreign Concept’s rework of SKS’ “Thousand Lives” has a gorgeous air of mystery about it, and the UK artist does a stellar job of amping up the intensity in a way that’s both a little dark and euphoric. While the full track stands at more than five minutes, this three-minute preview is available as a part of Vandal LTD’s Modern Soul 4 LP.


Texan producer Prismo has morphed Satellite Mode’s subtle pop track, “Gave It All,” into something much more forceful. He toys with singer Jessica Carvo’s vocals, weaving them in and out of an intense pattern of bass he’s crafted. Prismo’s ability to juxtapose this powerful style of bass music with Satellite Mode’s delicate form of indie-pop further demonstrates his strong proficiency in electronic music in all forms.


Tom Budin continues his consistent release schedule with a version of Noy’s “Kamikaze.” This gnarly bass house rework hits hard from the get-go, shocking the listener head on at the minute mark with a speaker-shattering bass. The original, too, featured an astoundingly deep bass, but Budin’s morphed the track into a more dance floor-accessible rendition. New Haven’s verses maintain the fiery intensity of the original as Budin works his magic on the beat.


Matroda‘s teamed up with RICCI on his latest original, a feisty house offering on Dim Mak called “Caliente (Na Na Na).” The collaboration offers a clean combination of house and trap and shows both artists in their finest form: crafting the most hard-hitting bass house they can.
