NMF Roundup: Mr. Kristopher offers acid house action, Savoy show off their rock edge, and Killsonik make a comeback

This post was originally published on this site

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.

Awoltalk and Ian Munro link up for the Official Goods Records’ inaugural release of 2018, an aggressive trap number punctuated by pronounced drum elements and low pitched bass lines.

Andrew Rayel puts forth the sequel to Moments (Remixes – EP1), the followup EP an electric offering featuring remixes from Radion6, Whiteout, and more.

Bass experimenter Mr. Kristopher exemplifies the expression ‘the third time’s the charm,’ dropping off the third part of his Brooklyn Trilogy series. Pt. 3 emerges from the sonic depths of Kristopher’s studio, evincing acid house action and haunting techno tones.

John Christian and electronic duo VAVO assert that three isn’t just company, but good company on the drum rhythm driven “How Low,” released on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label.

Savoy assert their rock edge in “Don’t Quit Me Now.”

Trance virtuoso Oliver Smith stuns via “Inside,” a release hailing from Smith’s melodic wheelhouse.

Dubstep duo Killsonik re-commence their electronic comeback on “Never Dream Of Dying,” a number dramatized by eerie string work at the intro, and punching bass thereafter.

UKF Dubstep caters to dub lovers in UKF Dubstep 2017 – Album Mix, an eclectic conglomeration of tracks shaded in dubstep tones.

Deorro’s Panda Funk label sees label veteran GARABATTO deliver a vocally centered statement on “Infected.”

Datsik has released a seven-track EP, Master of Shadows. He teamed up with Virtual Riot, Excision, Ganja White Night and more for the bass-heavy compilation.

Mr. Kristopher releases dark new EP ‘Brooklyn Trilogy: Part Two’

Enigmatic young producer Mr. Kristopher has finally released the second installment in his Brooklyn Trilogy EP series. Part two picks up on the same devastating note where the series’ first iteration left off, but sees the producer veering further into classic techno sounds. Where Part One featured some TB-303-inspired acid house action, Part Two is all about grueling, punishing bass lines and ambient industrial sounds. Throughout the four tracks, Mr. Kristopher keeps listeners guessing with frenetic beat changes that swerve in a moment from pulsing beats to near progressive interludes.

Each divergent and challenging new release is just another reminder of why this talented, breakout producer is one to watch.

Your EDM Premiere: Mr. Kristopher – Communion EP

This post was originally published on this site

Unlike the so-called golden age of electronic music in 2011-2013, the last three years have seen relatively less of the electro house genre. The high-energy, gritty sound has been largely replaced by bass house and some harsher future house from artists like Moksi, but there’s still a large demand for quality electro house out there.

Cue Mr. Kristopher, and his new Communion EP. In creating this EP, Mr. Kristopher essentially doubled down on the energy and darkness of the genre, clearly evident in the underlying synths and gloomy vocal samples and artwork. Influences on the first track, “Dark Lord,” for instance, come from the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Slipknot, and Rob Zombie.

There are many elements of the EP that defy normal musical convention, and that’s part of why I’m loving it so much. Here’s what Mr. Kristopher had to say about the fourth track on the EP, “Ritual.”

The fourth song on the EP is titled “Ritual.” This song is so f***ing insane. It starts with a scary low-end tone, followed by break beats, then it builds up, and doesn’t explode until a 5th hit instead of a traditional 4 count. This record reminds me of my days in metal bands, and I love playing it at shows!

Mr. Kristopher’s Communion EP is out Monday, January 23rd via Jet Set Trash Records.

“The textbook definition of communion is ‘sharing or exchanging intimate thoughts or feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level.’ I figured that is exactly what I am doing with my music. I hope you enjoy my intimate thoughts on a mental or spiritual level!” – Mr. Kristopher
