Your EDM Premiere: SuDs – Cog Wheels

This post was originally published on this site

Following his epic announcement of the upcoming Ghetto Trippin Tour, bass wizard SuDs has emerged with one of the most fiery singles off of his newest EP, F. Society. “Cog Wheels” takes the collective energy of the compilation at large and mangles it into a truly deadly concoction. By the time you’re through listening to this song, you’d be lucky not to find yourself on your stomach scooting across the floor in a mixture of agony and bliss.

It begins with scattered percussion hits and an ominous background soundscape before rising quickly towards a dripping, grimy rhythm full of ungodly growls, chest-rattling sub bass and the kind of minimalist arrangement that twists your face into a knot. The haunting atmospheric tones from the introduction eventually creep back into the forefront, before being abandoned once more for an eyeball-squishing medley of bass synths. Spectrum-wide horn blasts break up the filth for brief moments, serving as necessary seconds to breathe between the sloshing waves of bass.

Listen to the song below, and check further down for a complete EP download.

Infected Mushroom make good on their promise to ‘Return to the Sauce’ [Review]

This post was originally published on this site

After two decades of constant touring and prolific production, it would make sense if the members of Infected Mushroom were starting to show signs of exhaustion. Many long-time fans of the band have pointed to some of their recent work as evidence of them losing their innovative edge. Then again, when has any artist or band ever changed their sound and not had doubters?

With their latest album, Return to the Sauce, they aimed to show their avid worldwide fan base that they don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

Interestingly, the first track of the album, “Flamingo,” lands square in the mid-tempo range, which is not exactly the “sauce” that listeners might expect. For good reason, the legendary production team of Erez Eisen and Amit “Devdev” Duvdevani decided to use the first two tracks to ease the listener into the maws of psytrance, as coming in right off the bat into intense 140+ bpm can be jarring to many.

Additionally, Infected Mushroom’s best work is about the journey, not simply spewing the loudest, quickest beats possible – though they are certainly capable of doing that. It can be said that the energy of psytrance is something that, in order to be understood and appreciated, must be built up – exactly what the first two tracks accomplish.

The title track, as the name suggests, steps it up a notch, leading the listener into psytrance territory. The staccato bass that has been a staple of Infected Mushroom tracks for decades holds down the fast groove with fervor, which continues on throughout the remaining six tracks.

The album, along with a host of new psytrance songs, offers variances of two tracks from the large Infected Mushroom repertoire: a revamp of their 2000 remix of Xerox’s “Gravity Waves,” and a psytrance version of “Demons of Pain,” a downtempo vocal track from their 2015 album Converting Vegetarians II. Combining the old and the new, these two remixes represent a span of 15 years of history – an eternity in the entertainment industry.

One of the skills that has, and continues to, set Infected Mushroom apart from any other artist or band is their ability to tell a story with each piece of music and keep that story interesting for a very long time. The longest song on the album, “Milosh,” clocks in at almost eleven minutes of play time, although when listening it doesn’t feel long or drawn out.

Similarly, the structure of the last two tracks on Return to the Sauce, “Nutmeg” and “Liquid Smoke,” give a nod to classics such as “Cities of the Future,” “Heavyweight,” and “Deeply Disturbed.” In each of these, Infected Mushroom drives a constant progression that weaves multiple themes, each with its own section of rhythmic and sound design elements that could easily be complete songs on their own.

If anything can be taken away from this album, it’s that Infected Mushroom never strayed too far from psytrance. It was their innovation in the sub-genre that turned them into one of Israel’s best-selling artists of all time. As mentioned above, it is true with any band that’s been around for decades that there will be naysayers at every corner. However, Return to the Sauce is a reminder that Erez and Duvdev mastered the art and science of production long ago. Thus, they can easily bring back the signature sound and style of Infected Mushroom’s “golden days,” andthensome.

This post was originally published on this site

Dutch duo DROELOE has just released their first track of 2017, 11 days in. “In Time” is a future trap production featuring Dutch vocalist Belle Doron that reminisces about the past through delicate hip-hop beats and shimmering synth lines. The dreamy, atmospheric track has been released on Lowly Place, Trap Nation’s LA-based indie-electronic record label.

Stream “In Time” below and check out what DROELOE said about the track.

“When we were first working on the instrumental we had an idea of how the song was going to sound, but we weren’t sure about the specific feelings we were trying to convey. Then, Bella sent us her vocals and we were absolutely blown away by her emotion and lyrics. We instantly knew that the track was going to carry a sense of ‘reminiscing of the past’ and that’s how “In Time” was born.”

Kingdom – Tears in the Club

This post was originally published on this site

You think about really dark electronic music, and you have this certain image in your head. It might be different for everyone, but common adjectives you’d use to describe the kind of music I’m talking about could be “ominous,” “harrowing,” or even “malicious.”

All are useful to describe “Tears In The Club” by Kingdom. Taken from his album of the same name, forthcoming February 24, the song is incredibly dark. The bassline is ferociously sinister, paradoxically juxtaposed with light and delicate piano notes. There’s a definite duality going on in the track, giving listeners the option to join the light or dark side.

Ekali & KRANE – Akira [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

Two of the most significant names in underground bass music, Ekali and KRANE, have just paired up to release their first collaborative single, “Akira.” Featuring a healthy mixture of trap and future bass, the song is an instantly recognizable heater that perfectly blends the two’s respective production approaches. The result is a track worthy of a few consecutive listens, and certainly one that’s bound for the live show rotation.

It starts with powerful piano chords and an onrush of echoing vocals and synths. Crisp snare rolls gradually lead towards the build, where a swell of white noise and thunderous horns carry upwards into the drop. Suddenly, massive sirens weave in and out of the mix above a rumbling sub bass and sharp percussion hits. They’re soon replaced with choral vocal stings, before fading away for a short, flute-centered respite. The song climbs once more, this time dropping off into a bouncy and euphoric future bass atmosphere.
