KUURO – Swarm

This post was originally published on this site

Dubstep heavyweight duo KUURO have released their hard-hitting dubstep anthem, “Swarm,” on Monstercat.

The electronic duo is composed of Jordin Post and Luke Shipstad. They made their debut on Monstercat in October 2016 with “Aamon.” It was the strongest debut in Monstercat history, and fans quickly drove them to hit the Spotify Viral 50 in four countries. Since then, they’ve remained true to their unmatched production and sound design skills, catering to bass lovers and headbangers across the world.

Following the official remixes for Zedd, Liam Payne, and Boombox Cartel in September, the young duo has released “Swarm,” their sixth release on the Canadian label. Post says the track came to fruition from some simple sound experimentation.

“I was messing around with some sounds and came up with this gnarly bassline that just makes you want to headbang,” Post says.

Delta Heavy x Dirty Audio – Stay ft HOLLY

This post was originally published on this site

UK drum n’ bass authority, Delta Heavy, has compounded efforts with LA trap producer, Dirty Audio, for their new drumstep single, “Stay,” featuring seasoned vocalist, HOLLY. “Stay” is a joint release on both DNB patriarch, Andy C‘s RAM Records and eclectic Canadian label, Monstercat — marking Delta Heavy’s debut release on the latter.

“We had a lot of fun making the track with Andrew, and we’re all super proud of how it turned out, especially as it really feels like a true blend of all our signature styles,” said Delta Heavy said of Dirty Audio, who will soon embark on his Australia/New Zealand tour.

The cross-over track wields elements of DNB, trap, and dubstep, prompting a sardonic, “Have fun deciding what genre this is,” from Delta Heavy, themselves. HOLLY’s wistful vocals lend acute contrast to the track’s high-speed DNB breaks and shrilling bass.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 9

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.

What kind of fellow St. Louisan would I be if I didn’t start off this week’s Beat Lab by hyping one of the city’s finest producers? Notaker‘s intricate production skills grow more fine-tuned with each release, and his newest track is no exception. “Who I Am” came out on Oct. 2 on Monstercat, and the producer shared his extended cut of the song a day later. Being a fan of extended cuts due to the opportunity they present for the artist to expand on the initial concept, it’s the one I’ve chosen to share here.

Alexander Lewis is such a unique artist. His incorporation of live instruments like the trombone in his music makes him a standout in the dance music community. His latest, “Off Guard,” lives up to its name. Lewis impresses with an almost tropical sound in this one, integrating bold, brassy horns as a backdrop to beautiful female vocals.

Avicii‘s “Without You” has been everywhere since its release nearly two months ago. Heck, it was even on Snapchat, featured with the user’s dancing Bitmoji. Fareoh has swooped in with a remix of his own, putting more of a fun, upbeat twist on the original’s progressive house vibe. “Avicii was one of my biggest inspirations when I first began learning music production,” Fareoh says in the track description. “I’ve played multiple shows with him over the years, and truly admire the space he created in electronic music.”

Every single STéLOUSE release is unique. The producer switches up his style constantly, making each release more exciting than the last. His latest, a collaboration with vocalist Bryce Fox, is a downtempo song with attitude-packed lyrics about love lost. It’s overflowing with passion from every angle, and I can’t stop listening to it. His EP out Oct. 20 is sure to thrill.

Matroda‘s “On My Mind” in its initial form was a deep house track out on Heldeep Records. The producer has released it again in an entirely contrasting form: drum & bass. Though it’s short at under three minutes, it’s an action-packed, energetic take on the original. It’s always fascinating to me when artists rework their own music, and this one’s left me captivated.

Slander & Kayzo drop surprising first track off of their forthcoming EP

This post was originally published on this site

Slander and Kayzo recently announced they would be releasing a full EP in collaboration with one another on Monstercat, stirring anxious excitement from fans of both parties. Now, thanks to the first track of the EP having just been unveiled, those waiting for the full body of work to release will have a better idea of what to expect. Titled “Without You,” the record is surprising to say the least.

Slander and Kayzo, independently of one another, are known for their heavy drops and trap style. “Without You” is quite different from the sound and style bass heads have come to expect from the producers, and the sound one might expect with the announcement of their collaboration as a whole.

“Without You” revolves around Dylan Matthew’s vocals, and the entrance is downtempo guitar chords that put the listener at ease. They then ensure that their piece is made radio-friendly with drop that is synth-based and pop-y to its core. While Slander has introduced a few tracks that verge on pop as of late to his repertoire, this is not a sound heard from Kayzo yet.

Although trap fans may not be thrilled about the direction that this first track off of the EP went, Kayzo and Slander’s collaboration will almost certainly yield some great trap music to come.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 8

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.

The internet has been abuzz with Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble” since Skrillex dropped his remix of the iconic track last Friday. In the seven days since its release, SoundCloud feeds have been overrun with a diverse range of remixes of both the remix and the original — among them this electro flip from Moris Blak. Its racing synths and heavy electro patterns make it a standout in a sea of remixes, and it’s completely addicting.

In the few days since its release, Vincent‘s tantalizing remix of Boombox Cartel‘s “Alamo” has racked up an impressive number of plays. Fans (me included) seem drawn to its understated introduction and dramatic build, all leading up to a gorgeous future bass-influenced drop. Vincent takes a minimalist approach to the verses, letting the vocals take charge. This approach makes for a sensational, timeless take on the track, and it’s beautifully executed.

Rain Man and MAX‘s heavenly “Do You Still Feel” has received an impressive horn-heavy rework from Summer Was Fun as a part of the single’s remix package on Dim Mak. The original track, an emotional production from Rain Man and vocalist MAX, blended the elements of pop and electronic music, showing a softer side of the producer’s skill set. Summer Was Fun has injected the track with subtle builds and raring horn stabs for a more playful take on the solemn track. It’s a breath of fresh air — one he’s calling his favorite song he’s produced this year.

Remember this song? It’s been a minute. One-hit-wonder Iyaz originally released this track in 2010, and I remember having it on so many iPod playlists as a teenager. When Bishu’s take on the track popped up, I was intrigued before I even hit “play.” I was pleasantly surprised to find that Bishu had completely modernized the track with a funky moombahton-infused beat and some choppy pitched vocals. Fun find.

Jay Cosmic never, ever disappoints. With his latest, “Ascension,” out on Monstercat, the UK producer has wowed audiences of all genres. “Ascension” is billed as a dubstep track, but it’s so much more. With a euphoric introduction that builds for nearly two minutes, Cosmic takes the listener on journey that descends down into the bass world and back up briefly into the world of hardstyle. It’s masterfully produced, with the fine-tuned details making for an insane listening experience.

Grabbitz releases heartfelt new single, ‘Told Ya So’

This post was originally published on this site

In December 2016, Grabbitz blessed the holiday season with a short series called “12 Days of Grabbitz,” where he posted a new demo track every day for 12 days leading up to the release of “In The Winter” on Christmas day. Among these demos was a standout track called “Lose Control.”

Now in its final form, “Lose Control” has become “Told Ya So” and is out on Monstercat.

“Told Ya So” furthers Grabbitz’s journey away from electronic dance music in its conventional form and to fit in closer with the vibe of his debut album, Things Change, which came out in May.

In a live Facebook video following the release of the track, Grabbitz compares the feel of “Told Ya So” to his track “Float Away” in the way that it’s an emotional track held up by an upbeat pattern. From his heartfelt lead-out harmonies to the drifting guitar melody, Grabbitz gracefully demonstrates his versatile production skills and paves the way for the future of his musical journey.

Savoy caps off the summer months on a high note with their latest smash “How U Like Me Now”. Originally a demo cut played at their lives shows, Savoy later decided to polish off the track and add the incredible vocal stylings of Roniit when they saw the frenzied reactions of their fans every time they played the song.

The final product is on point, as Roniit’s beautiful vocals melt seductively into the track’s slow buildup and head-nodding, nuanced production.
