Delta Heavy churn out explosive new tune, ‘Exodus’Unnamed 3 1

UK producer duo Delta Heavy follow up their February Monstercat single “I Need You” with another release on the indie label, “Exodus.” The bass music producers seem to be gaining major headway in calling Monstercat home, including a well-received Call of the Wild guest mix for the label and being featured on Monstercat Uncaged Vol. 4.

The track is heavily cinematic at the start, with echoed dub-hits and intriguing narration, explaining that “science has opened the world to the unknown.” The production then carries the dubstep-driven work into oblivion, including a ferocious bassline and hard-hitting kick-snare combos. Expect this one to bump at upcoming tour stops such as Sziget Festival in August and Insomniac’s Bassmnt San Diego in September.

Gammer releases first remix pack for ‘The Drop’ with Stonebank, Skellism, and moreUnnamed 3

There’s no doubt that Gammer‘s “THE DROP” has taken festivals by storm since its release last November. With the track’s intense nature that cascades from each drop, along with the intricate production, he created yet another heater that’s not for the faint of heart.

With the success of the original, Gammer enlisted 4B x NvrLeftStonebankSkellismSlippy and Wooli for the first of two remix packs to take the track to the next level. Each artist carefully dissects the elements and then pieces them back together in completely new ways without losing any energy.

4B and NvrLeft channel some stuttering Jersey club, Skellism add cinematic elements and vocal chops, Slippy get experimental in the drops and adds some delicate arps, Stonebank creates drops with pumping synths and plentiful percussion, and Wooli puts a couple of edits that bring the original to a new level.

The remix package is out now via Monstercat.

Duumu releases third Monstercat single of 2018, ‘Forward’Duumu

Duumu has returned with his third Monstercat single of 2018, “Forward,” featuring ÊMIA. This warm future bass track creates a bed of sparkling and ambient synths for ÊMIA’s gentle vocals to rest upon.

“The idea was for a big emotionally driven track with a dominant melody, something to convey the feeling of moving on from a difficult period in life and the tensions that come with that process of change,” the French producer said of “Forward.”

With already a handful of singles and an EP released on taste-making Canadian label Monstercat at the age of 18, the future is looking bright for the young artist. He was influenced by growing up around jazz and rock musicians in Paris and London. Currently entering the touring and festival circuit, Duumu has garnered support from the likes of Nervo, Virtual Riot, Manila Killa, and KUURO.

LVTHER releases ultra-catchy new track with Ayelle ‘Time Well Spent’Lvther Time Well Spent Art

Emerging producer Lewis Dransfield, more commonly known as LVTHER to a quickly growing base of fans, is back with a sultry new collaboration that’s primed for summer playlists. The new track, “Time Well Spent” featuring Swedish-Iranian vocalist Ayelle, comes by way of Canadian imprint Monstercat. As LVTHER continues to build his profile, he’s dropped off a buzzing, futuristic pop cut on his latest, delving into the infectious new tune’s inspiration. Dransfield explains,

“It’s never been my intention to write poppy music really. I’ve always found myself obsessing over songs that I deem to be catchy, whether they’re in the pop realm or not. I listen to a lot of different types of music: psychedelic rock, hip-hop, soul.”

The track’s self-evident title is just that — time well spent on worthy repeated listens. Ready for headphones, poolside hangs, and windows-down cruising alike, LVTHER and Ayelle proctor the perfect summer track, comprised of groovy chords and ultra-catchy vocals. Although a pop-leaning product might not have been the intention, LVTHER has undoubtedly crafted a hit on “Time Well Spent.”

Ryan Browne is known for taking hard-hitting tracks and adding heavy metal and electronic elements to them. He did just this when he took his hand at transforming Grabbitz and Pegboard Nerds‘ cutting track “All Alone.” The original was released two years ago on Monstercat with a combination of sharp chords and dubstep drops.

Browne has found a way to make the track more melodic and flow seamlessly together while keeping an intense drum & bass drop. The scattered synths of the original blend into a cohesive pulsating bass whole with Browne’s rendition, breathing new life into “All Alone.”

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 43

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


House maven BIJOU has returned with another tasty dance floor-ready offering, “Take A Hit,” with Gerry Gonza. His hard-hitting style fuses perfectly with that of Gonza’s as they pair sultry vocals with a bass-heavy beat for a g-house collaboration that’s sure to entice dance music listeners of all persuasions.


Rameses B‘s style of drum & bass can be summed up in one word: intense. With each new release, the UK artist tells an enthralling tale. During his latest’s six-minute length, “Prometheus” builds and drops in tremendous fashion. Mystery-filled breaks that tell a tale of the narrator searching for someone, adding to the suspense. “This is the first time I’ve combined psytrance and drum and bass, the result is a progressive and ever-evolving track that takes the listener on a journey,” Rameses B says of the Monstercat release. “This could spark future iterations of the psy-dnb genre.”


Hidden Face exhibits a mysterious feel to his music reminiscent of ZHU‘s. The up-and-coming Parisian artist pairs a dark beat with alluring vocals painting a foreboding picture as he goes. Though slightly eerie, the track is fascinating, and I find myself listening again and again. “Turn off the lights” marks Hidden Face’s opening track to his debut three-track EP, out now on Daruma.


I’ll admit I was surprised to see ATTLAS on Louis The Child‘s “Better Not” remix package — pleasantly so. The mau5trap artist has composed a beautiful rendition of the Chicago duo’s hit, layering in a variety of lighthearted synths that give the track an extra feel-good vibe. It’s impeccably produced and shows a lighter side of the Toronto artist’s style.


Elephante‘s Glass Mansion EP has just hit the airwaves, adding nine emotion-packed originals to his repertoire. The EP’s namesake is a blissful and catchy track with a deeper message. “It’s the story about building and dreaming about the “Glass Mansion,” where the streets are made of gold and everything is perfect – and then finally getting there, and realizing that it’s not what you were looking for,” Elephante told Billboard. “You can’t wait to be happy until you achieve something – you have to find joy in the process. Because we’ll never have it better than we do right now.”
