Black Tiger Sex Machine are one of the biggest forces in bass music and yet they are still underrated. Not only do they release music, but you can find them running their label Kannibalen Records on top of that. Part of that venture has been handpicking some talented producers to take on remix duties and
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.
Black Tiger Sex Machine and YOOKiE teamed up previously for the epic track “Lions” and now they’ve added to their animalistic kingdom with “Snakes.” The single follows up BTSM’s second album, New Worlds, and comes just ahead of their headlining tour across North America. I think it’s safe to say you’ll be hearing this one
I will say it time and time again – Black Tiger Sex Machine are some of the most exciting artists in the game. The trio from our friendly neighbor up north has been revitalizing the electro sound while bending the bass genres at their whim for years now. The group is best known not only

From Montreal’s Igloofest, to the gone-but-never-forgotten Brrrrr Winter Music Festival in Toronto, Canadians are incredibly fortunate to host a plenitude of outdoor-winter events throughout the years. Though winter is close to being over and the inaugural start to festival season approaches, Snowbombing Canada is here to remind everyone that there’s never a wrong time to party in the snow.
Fusing the worlds of winter-sports and dance music into a winter-wonderland for four days and nights, Snowbombing Canada takes place from April 5–9 amidst Sun Peaks Valley; one of the hidden treasures of Canada’s West coast. With success in booking distinguished and complementary dance/hip-hop headliners, last year’s event saw Kaskade and Ludacris close out the event.
As the 2018 edition nears, fan-favorite duo ODESZA and hip-hop queen Cardi B are set to headline the “Forest Stage”, appropriately located in between the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and towering trees. Boasting a plethora of additional acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gorgon City and Troyboi, Snowbombing has curated a detailed lineup that suits the festival’s exuberant vibe.
Snowboarders and skiers are treated to the best of both worlds; shredding during the day and dancing at night. Activities like ‘Alpine Yoga’, ‘The Snowlympics’ and some cheeky ‘Chair Life Speed Dating’ add unique attributes that turn guests from attendees, into Snowbombing veterans.
Festival passes, accommodation and transportation are all available online.
The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.
Chopped vocal samples and hip hop-inflected rhythmic additions make for an eccentric sound on Hanz‘s “Clutched.”
Headhunterz makes his return to hardstyle production via a massive new LP, The Return of Headhunterz.
Element constructs the quintessential filthy drop on his hard-hitting new release, “Needles.”
Ookay channels the bouncy synth work that has come to be characteristic of a Marshmello production on his whimsical new offering, “Loved or Lost.”
QUIX and JVMIE’s “I’ll Give You The World” is an expert example of lush future bass production.
Tisoki takes on Oliverse‘s “Leave Them Behind,” flipping the track into a smooth-gliding dubstep rendition.
KDrew and KVNNIBVL bring the weekend vibes with a smattering of falsetto-like vocals and a lighthearted, bobbing beat in “Body of Gold.”
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.
