Adam Jouneau, the Frenchman better known as Habstrakt, is back with another bass crunching tune, “Movie,” featuring josh pan, to add to his long, multifarious catalogue. The Mad Decent release comes after the Frenchman’s wildly popular, ear-splitting collaboration with Skrillex, “Chicken Soup.”
Habstrakt is known for his ability to repurpose wide-ranging assortments of popular elements on the electronic spectrum and shape them into something altogether unrecognizable–his latest creation not withstanding.
“Movie” is a continuation of the heavy-handed house leanings Uncle Habby has displayed in both his recent productions and DJ sets as he accompanies Destucto along his Let’s Be Friends Tour. Josh pan’s shadowy vocals are all smoke and mirrors, carrying us through minimal, downtempo interludes. But the drop soon erupts into a jarring, serrated display of metallic bass and house beats–almost as if Habstrakt has translated his longstanding dubstep devotion into a 4×4 house pattern.
Don’t expect to hear “Movie” in any generic big room sets any time soon.
The trio of Jauz, YOOKiE, and josh pan make for a fascinating group on the surface, and their collaborative effort, “Dinner Chat” lives up to the intrigue. A diverse affair, “Dinner Chat” sees each producer stretch outside of their comfort zone while at the same time maintaining their signature styles.
A simple, whistled melody opens the track before a chopped vocal hook grabs the listener. A breakbeat build up — complete with 90s-inspired synth stabs — culminates in a rolling, experimental, moombahton-tinged drop. A second drop sees the triumvirate throw a curveball, with a half-time section more inclined to grooves than headbanging.
Released on Jauz’s label, Bite This, “Dinner Chat” is a fine example of three talented artists playing off each other to craft a unique track that is sure to stick out in a crowded market.
This music video is dope as hell, just like the audio was when it first dropped. The extremely far-out, trippy, animated futuristic visuals are the perfect ‘vision’ for the out of control combination of sounds and feels by this group of next level producers. I’d really love to see more collaborations by these four, shit
As thousands of dance music fans made their way onto Holy Ship this year, no one expected quite the b2b excursion as this one. While we’re used to seeing rare alter-alias performances, Josh Pan decided to go back to back with Louis The Chil, A-Trak, and Hotel Garuda during Holy Ship 2018. In addition to
Josh Pan has a legitimate gift. The man first rose to popularity in the dance music world when he started a Twitter thread involving a ridiculous erotic fan fiction between Jai Wolf and Ghastly. He was inspired to do so after a borderline stupid Twiiter feud that saw everyone from Moe Shalizi to the Diplo
Rising Los Angeles-based producer FLY delivers an electrifying remix of josh pan & X&G‘s “nowhere,” taking the originally ambient track from hazy melancholia to bass heaven.
FLY adds stabbing synths and looming bass to “nowhere,” ramping up the track’s mysterious tone with trap elements.

Following Skrillex’s release of his production with Damien Marley & Ty Dolla $ign, Skrillex will officially release a remix of Ekali’s hit single “Babylon.” The song was originally teased in early September by Ekali during his DJ slot at Bumbershoot Festival. Just yesterday (September 19th), Ekali tweeted that he will be releasing the official Skrillex
Mysterious OWSLA-signed producer josh pan has released “Give It To Ya” featuring ABRA, accompanied by a stunning visual that takes place in a futuristic underworld. Created by French visual artist and director Quentin Deronzier, the protagonist of the “visualizer” undergoes a series of preparative transformations before returning light to her people.
The android queen in the new video compliments ABRA’s sensual vocals and the track’s pulsing bass. “Give It To Ya” follows the artist’s last release, the 14 minute “you wouldn’t understand” featuring dylan brady, judge and lewis grant. With an idiosyncratic style and a continued air of mystery, josh pan is proving to be one of electronic music’s most interesting emerging artists.
