Yup, 2017 was the year of the underground….even though it kinda always is. While Rolling Stone Magazine decided to go full Resident Advisor and release a list of obscure, avant-garde, and borderline unlistenable albums as their annual top electronic albums, we have kept note of some of the best records that few seemed to notice. The

This past weekend, Insomniac’s EDC Orlando took place at Tinkerfield, spanning over two days of continuous dancing and heart-pounding music. I have attended this festival for over three years, and I have never been disappointed with this Insomniac annual event. Truthfully, this year was the best one I have attended thus far. Taking place for
After a decently quiet first half to 2017, Afrojack has really stepped up his release schedule. The legend has dropped new tracks several weeks in a row now, many of which returned to his Dutch House roots. In his latest collaboration with notable vocalist VASSY Afrojack returned to a more melodic, vocal oriented track structure.

When Marshmello and Khalid first released their melodic smash hit ‘Silence’, I claimed that the song was a bit of a let down. Clearly sometimes I have no idea what I am talking about, as ‘Silence’ very quickly became a powerful statement that extended across genre lines. Now Marshmello has released 4 absolutely gorgeous remixes

Martin Garrix and Brooks have teamed up once again the result is one of the absolute best singles of the year. ‘Boomerang’ was released as a collaboration between Brooks and GRX. GRX is one of Martin Garrix’s aliases and we are assuming the name was used to help keep the focus on Brooks, who is

Phenomenal preset packs have come far and few between in recent times. With sample and sound packs monster Cymatics taking over as the prime place to go for sounds, several others have tried and failed to mirror what they have done. But finally, they may have contest.
Evolution of Sounds (AKA: Evo Sounds) is a sample and preset company that has been making quality sounds for as long as I have been making music. Most people will recognize Evo Sounds’ boss, Zen World, as a Youtube star in the production community. From his sound remakes, production tips and more, Zen World has established himself as a great teacher for new beginners. After putting out several preset and sample packs, I truly believe Zen World and Evo Sounds have hit their stride with their new release: Confession Revolution.
With sounds based off of the biggest hits from Tchami’s label Confession, producers will have the ability to start and finish their own Confession-esque bass house records. Drums, bass sounds, FX, leads and more are to be found in this “megapack.”
When I first opened the pack, I reached straight for the Serum Presets. As I was flicking through the presets (playing the sounds through MIDI given inside of the pack), I found myself amazed at how many sounds there were, and how great they all sounded. Many are unique, and many are phenomenal remakes of Confessions’ largest records. One sound in particular amazed me: a sound remade from Dombresky’s hit “Utopia.” The preset, named after the song, was remade flawlessly. With so many leads, FX, plucks and more, inspiration is endless when making any genre with this pack. The sounds in here are truly remarkable. My only gripe? The macro knobs don’t show what they’re affecting, so you have to open up the Serum Matrix in order to see what you’re doing when turning the knob.
Reaching for the drums next, I was shocked at how well they fit in records without any processing. Claps are the perfect size, percussion is unique, and everything sounds tight and ready to go. Surprisingly, two sets of kick drums are included. Provided are your standard punchy/clicky kicks used to cut through a mix. Several of those larger, “thumpier” kicks are provided as well a la Jace Mek’s “Whales.”
Also included are vocal shots, FX in the form of audio samples, MIDI and Sylenth1 Presets and even FL Studio and Ableton project files that you can go through and reverse engineer to learn how to make your own songs from start to finish.. Through and through, the pack impresses and is something I will reach to consistently when starting my own records. It’s well worth the money, and I’m excited to see what Zen World and Evo Sounds have to offer in the future!
Be sure to get the pack while it’s still on sale here!
