I can’t even lie, these posts are so common these days it is almost like groundhogs day writing them over and over. Honestly though they just never keep being absolutely adorable. Marshmello has a sea of young fans, like children. Of course he does since he looks like a friendly cartoon character and spreads loving
While it’s pretty common knowledge that Chris Comstock (Dotcom) is Marshmello at this point, the Bollywood actress, Urvashi Rautela, is under fire for accidentally revealing Marshmello’s true identity. Instead of taking down the photo, Rautela has since untagged Marshmello from her Instagram post but has left Maejor and Moe Shalizi tagged. Take a look at
Marshmello has been continuing to destroy 2017. A long list of collaborators as well as fun and original tracks have caught the attention of millions. He is now a mainstay at main stages all over the world. Today thought Marshmello announced a collaborator that nobody could have expected via twitter. While Mello has dove into
In the ever-changing world of dance music, many mass musical tastes go in and out of style. However, a seemingly passé style of electronic music known as hardcore, is making a subtle, yet noisy, comeback. With rampant four-to-the-floor kick drums, and tempos pushing upwards of 160 to 200 beats per minute, some of the foundational hardcore electronic songs from the 1980s and 1990s pushed the boundaries of acceptability, even back then. Punk rock and metal played a role in propelling hardcore to its peak in the 20th century. Today, artists like Darren Styles, S3RL, and Gammer have pulled hardcore into the 21st century with a new twist, often referred to as happy hardcore. Style & Gammer have in the past partnered to release many a remix in this unique style. Now, Gammer has gone solo and released a flip of Marshmello‘s “Alone” continuing the evolution of the peculiar subgenre.
While the hardcore of the 20th century often drew on punk rock and metal motifs, Happy Hardcore leans into 8-bit samples and references to The Legend of Zelda or other millennial inside jokes. Gammer’s flip of “Alone” doesn’t drift too far from the original track structure, as the original has tuned vocal samples and small 8-bit sounding blips that makes it an obvious choice for a happy hardcore flip. Other than the foundational beat structure, which Gammer changes to a four-to-the-floor rather than Marshmello’s broken beat, and the track tempo, which Gammer ups slightly, there’s not a whole lot different in this flip. If the standard for quality is set at the original, Gammer’s version is fine. That bar may be a bit low in the bigger picture, but this track is free so why not download it?
This track and remix is just a Moe Shalizi extravaganza. All three artists are known for being represented by one of the most talented marketing minds in EDM. That being said this remix demonstrates that these artists would be making waves even if Mr. Moe never discovered them. Jauz teased new music yesterday over twitter
Jauz announced to fans last night on Twitter that he would be releasing new music today that had never been heard before. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the surprise release, and just recently we got our answer. The shark-themed producer released a remix of Slushii x Marshmello‘s “Twinbow.”
The song has been transformed with hard(er) drops and complex layering over the already elaborate track. Jauz also altered the vocal layers, juxtaposing a deeper vocal with the added dose of bass. Marshmello has already tweeted his praise for the remix.
Knife Party and Pendulum front man Rob Swire is one of the more outspoken musicians in the world of EDM. So much so that many say he is even rougher than Deadmau5 in terms of criticism. Most notably he once called a fan who spoke out against him something along the lines of a ‘dumpster
