Destroid will reunite for Excision’s music festival

This post was originally published on this site

Excision enraptured the bass music community earlier in May when he announced the launch of his own three-day festival. Though discussion surrounding the event has been substantial, its details thus far are sparse. Recently, the Canadian artist revealed the dates of the festival (September 29 – October 1) through a semi-cryptic “cave painting,” but its lineup and location have yet to be announced.

Yesterday, May 17, marked a momentous announcement for the event. After over a year of hibernation, Destroid laconically broke their silence on social media to share a cave painting of their own. The post depicts a prehistoric image of the trio performing above an etching of the festival dates.

The formidable live band – made up of Excision, Downlink, and producer/Pendulum drummer KJ Sawka – is a veritable rarity on the festival circuit, with Ultra 2016 marking their most recent appearance. Destroid’s larger-than-life aesthetic and overwhelmingly loud, aggressive sound make them an ideal candidate for a concert of such low-end magnitude, and their inclusion foreshadows an epic lineup to come.

Suffice it to say, the next cave painting has a tough act to follow.

Well maybe it is the second since obviously Excision himself will be playing his very own festival. Lucky for all bass music fans out there the second artist has taken to social groups to announce their appearance. We all probably could have guessed this one as Excision is a member of the group.

Slushii Confirms Two Upcoming Monstercat Releases

This post was originally published on this site

Our favorite bright haired producer has just confirmed two releases on MonstercatSlushii has previously released a couple tracks on Monstercat that have reached major success, so it makes sense to continue the trend. The photo below, taken from the subreddit for Monstercat, shows that Slushii will be releasing not just two ordinary tracks on Monstercat, but two extraordinary collaborations.



As you can see from the picture, we will have a Slushii x Laura Brehm and a Slushii x Dion Timmer collab. Laura Brehm has sung on songs like “Melancholy” by REZZ and “Monody” by TheFatRat. You might know Dion Timmer from his filthy releases on Monstercat, or his collabs with Excision. I’m really excited to see what Slushii and Timmer cook up and I am sure that the Laura Brehm track with be a future bass gem with some stunning vocals. Check back with us to listen to the tracks when they are released.

Listen to his first Monstercat release below.

PK Sound Just Unveiled Their Most Powerful Sub Ever

This post was originally published on this site

If you’ve been to a bass music show or festival in the past few years, there’s a good chance you’ve been treated to the stellar quality of a PK Sound system. Known to be a favorite of festivals like Shambhala and artists like Excision, pk sound has carved out a loyal following among audio professionals.

Today, pk unveiled their most powerful subwoofer ever, Gravity. It’s so powerful that pk sound claims the Gravity 30 model “replaces three conventional dual 18″ subwoofers.”

With a very high output-to-size ratio, the Gravity 30 replaces three conventional dual 18” subwoofers, significantly reducing truck pack and weight. A 15,000-watt class-D amplifier with differential pressure loop technology provides efficient, high output power to the 30” moving magnet linear motor M-Force transducer. The dual reflex bandpass enclosure provides high, symmetric loading to the cone increasing efficiency and dramatically improving transient response, reducing distortion and maximizing low frequency extension.

In layman’s terms, it’s going to be loud as sh*t.

Check out their previous system Trinity below:

Datsik & Excision Release New Collaboration, “Redemption”

This post was originally published on this site

There are a few names that come up when you utter the phrase “gods of bass music.” Bassnectar is usually the first, but Excision and Datsik are absolutely on the short list. The two Canadians have made a point of creating some of the grimiest and most notorious tracks in dubstep, even creating their own respective labels Rottun and Firepower. Today, they’ve just released their new collaboration “Redemption,” the first collab from the two to be uploaded to UKF Dubstep.

If you’ve listened to either artist individually or together before, you can already sort of guess what this will sound like. Pounding drums, classic dubstep synths, crisp production, it’s all there. There’s no doubt that fans would go absolutely mad when this is dropped live, but listening at home, it seems a little safe for both artists.

This will be featured on Datsik’s forthcoming Sensei EP due out December 16.

7 Artists That Are Pushing The Envelope With Their Live Shows [WATCH]

These 7 acts are fighting against the stigma that electronic music means “press play”!

Big Gigantic Ignites Shows Along the Brighter Future Tour (Concert Review)

This post was originally published on this site

Among the cities along the first week of Big Gigantic’s Brighter Future Tour, the Boulder based duo made a point to express how happy they were to be back in Asheville, NC. EDM has a minor foothold in this artistic mountain city, but seeing as it’s been a long standing source of awe at the Moog Synthesizers location and a choice few electronica festivals over the years, (Including Moogfest and Mountain Oasis) the existing current here is strong.

The concert itself was a late season festival reunion. There were wristbands from Bonnaroo, Coachella, Electric Forrest, and many others. Equally as set up for the oncoming Big G explosion was the venue itself. The Orange Peel ‘social aid and pleasure club’ has hosted a wide range of diverse EDM acts over the years. It hosted one of Skrillex’s Scary Monsters shows back in 2011 as well as earlier performances by Paper Diamond, ExcisionMadeon, Break Science, and two back to back NYE sets by RJD2 this past year and the year before. Big Gigantic’s reprise at the Peel last month was definitely worthy of the sold out shows it’s been known for here.

As the night took shape, Big G mostly played the material off of Brighter Future, with some crowd pleasers from years past peppered in for good measure. Most notable from the first few songs was “Highly Possible” featuring Waka Flocka Flame, which the pair rocked the rafters with. Also making an appearance from years past was “It’s Going Down” which revived that bass thumping fury that the crowd still remembered.

The throwbacks continued into the encore with infamous snippets from Rusko and Knife Party (“Hold On” and   “Bonfire” respectively). It also included great reminders of Big G’s previous album with “Touch the Sky” and “The Night is Young.”

Although the Brighter Future Tour officially wrapped up a couple weeks ago, you can still catch Big Gigantic two more times this year closer to New Year’s Eve. They’ll be forming The Big Gigantic Incident with The String Cheese Incident on Dec. 29 in Broomfield, CO and playing the Snowta Festival in Minneapolis, MN for an epic New Years countdown performance.

It was also just announced that the duo will play both weekends of Electric Forest in 2017.

With the beginning of a new month, that can mean only one thing: A brand spankin’ new Month in Music playlist for October. Last month was relatively slow regarding album releases, although we did see amazing feats of work from the likes of Zeds Dead with their debut album Northern LightsLido’s Everything and Excision’s Virus, just to name a few.

We also saw amazing releases from artists all across the genre spectrum. Kaskade & deadmau5 officially released their follow up collaboration from the monumental 2008 track “I remember,” this time around with vocals by Skylar Grey in “Beneath With Me.”

Jauz & San Holo dropped a monster of a collaboration that fans have been waiting a long time for on the Monstercat label titled, “OK!”

Marshmello released his favorite song he’s ever made titled, “Ritual,” with vocals by Wrabel. Wrabel worked with Afrojack for one of his biggest tracks “Ten Feet Tall,” and I think it’s safe to say “Ritual” is bound to assert itself as one of Marshmello’s best tracks to date.

Dutch wunderkind Martin Garrix released seven tracks across the month of October. One of our favorites is definitely the rumored Avicii collaboration, which actually turned out to be “Hold On & Believe,” with none of than The Federal Empire.

And in honor of the eclectic electronic duo Empire Of The Sun dropping their latest album Two Vines, we thought it would be a joy to include their famous “Walking On A Dream.”

Check out all these and more in Your EDM’s Month in Music playlist for October below!
