Xilent has broken his year-long silence and dropped You Rise on Monstercat. Xilent could go by many names; the grandeur of glitch, dominator of dubstep, conqueror of complextro, and he would deserve every one of them. The insanely talented producer skyrocketed to fame in 2011 with his debut of Choose Me II. Over the next

In a day when memes can become rappers — where the Bhad Bhabies and Big Shaqs of the internet are out here scoring major record deals (honorable mention, Mason Ramsey) — somehow living meme incarnate Oliver Tree is actually flipping the already wild idea on its head. Although signed to a major label himself, he’s warping indie-rap into something completely new, and ultra-contemporary, and considering the rhymer’s hilarious aesthetic, it’s ironically working, really well. Putting on his own blend of tenacious electro-punk/hip-hop, his latest,”Movement,” falls right in line, with a lo-fi gut-punch anchored around Tree’s fearlessly swaggering versework.
The Whethan-produced track lays down a plucking bass line with the beat building into a thundering glitch-hop backdrop on which the Alien Boy wunderkind delivers his latest bars. Proving to be a formidable pairing with Whethan once again following “Enemy,” Oliver Tree adds another rinse-worthy hybrid cut to his arsenal with “Movement.”
Some say music is journey, I’d have to agree with them. I just spent 10 months building a new catalogue of tunes to release starting today with Glitch in the System – a mixture of multi genre bass tracks compiled by myself from mates that I have met on the road. Glitch in the System is
Rameses B has dropped Twilight Zone, an all-around delicious track featuring Laura Brehm, on Liquicity’s Galaxy Of Dreams 3. Rameses B’s production skills are on another level. You know when you meet someone and you get into “the music discussion…” Whenever I am in one of those situations and someone asks me, Do you like
Big fat funky bass, sick guitar licks, mean hooks… Defunk delivers a freakin’ ripsnorter new single via one of my favourite labels on the planet, Westwood Recordings. Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Defunk has taken funky bass music to a whole new level. Most popularly known for his attention of bringing elements of funk, jazz and blues
A decade ago, Flying Lotus kicked off his independent Brainfeeder record label, where he set out to hone in on the left of center intersections of electronic music and instrumental hip-hop. Since then, the label’s signed experimental artists like Thundercat, The Underachievers, Lapalux, Mr. Oizo, and more.
Moving into 2018, Brainfeeder producer PBDY has released a new collection of Brainfeeder tracks on a new mix, Brainfeeder 2017 ∞ 2018. In it’s SoundCloud description, PBDY’s referred to it as, “A collection of Brainfeeder tracks & rarities as well as a glimpse of what’s to come in 2018.”
The 46-minute mix boasts Brainfeeder exclusives like a Lapalux collaboration with Lousiahhh, as well as work from labelmate Iglooghost, and a few Thundercat remixes. The very last track on the mix is a new instrumental number from the Brainfeeder-boss, Flying Lotus himself, entitled “Quarantine.”
“Quarantine” is a more subdued sound than Flying Lotus’s recent output, specifically the rap-centric You’re Dead! album of 2014, which featured collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Captain Murphy, Snoop Dogg, and more. The instrumentals of the new track shine a light on the endless sonic opportunities and possible avenues for FlyLo’s new record, which he’s recently confirmed he’s currently finishing.

Claude VonStroke‘s first love was hip-hop, and as is said, “you never forget your first love.” In an effort to hone in on his love for the genre, VonStroke released a debut LP under his own name, Barclay Crenshaw, in January of 2017 and as the year went on, he released a satiating slew of extraterrestrial-friendly hip-hop, and honeyed-jazz, leading listeners on tantalizing trip-hop odysseys.
In October, Barclay Crenshaw played a cavernous, bass-saturated set at the Dirtybird Campout. After delivering what was largely regarded as one of the best West Coast bass sets of the year, Crenshaw’s now shared the near hour live mix and its an appeasing culmination of unrelinquishing, dirty bass and hip-hop opulence.
Speaking on the mix on his SoundCloud he said,
“Alien visitors have chosen to send messages across our channels of abandoned technology. Our old phone lines are currently running complex data formulas that have allowed enemy visitors to take control of all “A.I.” devices such as Alexa and Siri. This “A.I.” is now fully controlled and the brainwashing of the human population has commenced.”
Continuing, “Barclay Crenshaw took a stand last October somewhere off the grid in Bradley, California – shielding 4,000 listeners from the imminent takeover. The DJ set was actually a series of bass waves deconstructing the brainwashing process. Please listen now to this recording especially if you feel like you are no longer in control of your life. Save yourselves.”
Jauz and Zeds Dead are both respectively wrapping up on career years as 2017 draws to a close. To celebrate two independently successful campaigns, Hooks and DC are linking with Jauz to cap off the year with a bang, teaming up for three back-to-back NYE performances and officially solidifying the union with some new joint music. Linking up for “Lights Go Down” the trio offer up a heavy-handed drum n’ bass-inspired setlist weapon that seamlessly complements both of their distinct production styles.
The three-man outfit show off their shared penchant for pitch-bending vocals and cinematic builds, as “Lights Go Down” spirals into a thunderous uptempo glitch-hop rhythm polished with head spinning, percussive assaults for the breaks. Charging into 2018, the Sharksquad factotum and his veteran Canadian counterparts have now both entered the A&R game, each founding imprints to begin to groom the next generation of up-and-coming DJs and producers with Deadbeats and Bite This. The new offering is being dually released via the two labels, and could hopefully usher in a more cross-label collaborations between these two acts in the future.
So, it’s out. April 21, 2018 OPIUO will finally headline Red Rocks. He’s obviously been there a few times in a solo capacity and with his band earlier this year, but it’s been a meteoric rise to be headlining one of the all time top venues on the planet. SunSquabi, Flamingosis, and Anomalie are all on support duties
