Exclusive: WE ARE FURY release celestial, hard-hitting ‘Memories’ featuring RUNN

Exclusive: WE ARE FURY release celestial, hard-hitting ‘Memories’ featuring RUNNCred Curtis Huisman Min

Canadian duo WE ARE FURY have released a melodic dubstep anthem, “Memories,” featuring RUNN, whose previous features include Illenium, Seven Lions, Dabin, Hotel Garuda, Bear Grillz, William Black, and more. WE ARE FURY are a go-to of Illenium’s for official remixes after reworking “I’ll Be Your Reason” and “Lost” on the future bass guru’s previous two albums.

“Memories” starts with lush synths, with dainty plucks introducing RUNN’s sultry vocals. A running synth builds the anticipation while percussion elements slowly enter. Synths continue to build the anticipation which drops into a hard-hitting hybrid of in-your-face future bass and dubstep rhythm. Hold on for the second drop, which throws the duo’s signature dark sounds and industrial glitchy fills among quite the energetic environment.

“Memories is a song about loss. RUNN created this world around the character by using very real human experiences and imagery,” the duo said of the release. “There are a couple lines in the song where she says all the character had left was ‘this old house’ and ‘the photographs of our better years.’ That really resonated with us and we built the whole message & concept of the song around that. The art is way more intimate than our usual stuff and we portrayed the character, symbolizing RUNN, sitting in said empty home looking at the Polaroids of the memories.

The message we want to pass along is we all go through loss, in many forms. Whatever it is you are going through you are allowed to mourn and experience it fully. However you have to keep going and eventually you will see why you had to go through those experiences in order to become the person you are now.”

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 81

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 81Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor 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.

Listen in playlist format here.


Bishu‘s sixth Monstercat single comes at the listener swinging. He taps songstress Mister Blonde on the anthemic “Get To Know Me,” a booming future bass track that’s refreshing in a genre saturated with repeated sounds. Just like in last spring’s “Machine,” Mister Blonde’s sultry vocals again complement Bishu’s production perfectly, as she leads the listener up to a booming drop. “Get To Know Me” is part of the Canadian producer’s forthcoming debut EP, The Hali 2 Cali EP.

Since bursting onto the scene just two years ago, Midnight Kids have garnered support from some of the industry’s biggest names. From massive remixes to their debut original last June, this duo has shown no signs of slowing down—particularly with their newest remix: Porter Robinson‘s iconic 2010 “Say My Name.” Hardcore Robinson fans might be a bit wary of any remix of this notable track, but Midnight Kids have done it justice by focusing on the melodies and playing up the emotive aspects of the track. “Porter Robinson changed the way we look at making music,” Midnight Kids noted in their song description. “Without this record coming out things could have been different for us.”

I was obsessed with The McMash Clan’s swing-oriented moombahcore “Swing Break” in 2013 but had a hard time finding any other tunes that incorporated a swing element as flawlessly as that one. When I found out Teminite and Swing’it Dixieband had teamed up for a funky electro-swing track called “Party Like it’s 1923,” I was thrilled. Straight out of a Great Gatsby scene, this track employs bold horns, a swinging electro beat, and retro vocals for an overall classy and brassy aura. Teminite continues to demonstrate his versatility as a producer, giving fans the collaboration they never knew they needed.

Mazare returns to Monstercat after his October remix of Hailene with a gorgeously emotive collaboration with vocalist RUNN. The Italian artist also recently created an otherworldly drum & bass remix for Seven Lions and only continues to improve with each new piece of work. This new top-notch single has fans raving about the impeccable blend of RUNN’s flawless vocals and Mazare’s meticulous production—and rightly so. It’s one of the most blissful pieces of music to hit the Monstercat airwaves so far this year.

UKF has been showcasing some exceptional music so far in 2019, the latest of which is a collaboration of two drum & bass powerhouse acts: Hybrid Minds and Koven. Koven member Katie Boyle’s voice positively drips with emotion in this piano-fueled drum & bass number. It’s a vulnerable piece, and though the track is backed by a racing beat, it maintains an ethereal, wistful atmosphere the whole way through. The artists’ passion for their art form is raw and unguarded in “In Your Arms,” and it’s beautiful to experience.

This post was originally published on this site

After a brief hiatus, Hotel Garuda returns in full force with their new single, “Blurry Eyes.” Coming off an iconic performance at Holy Ship!, the duo enlisted former Illenium and Seven Lions collaborator RUNN for this release, which is set to be lead track on their forthcoming EP.

Out on Mom + Pop Music, this track hits all the spots with an upbeat tempo that seamlessly blends deep guitar riffs, major-chord synths, and Runn’s cheeky vocals, leaving listeners with some optimistic vibes for the summer. Regarding the release, Hotel Garuda had some words on the creative process:

“Going into this year we really wanted to make our mark with original work that spoke not only to our influences but to our experiences as well. Our first session this year was with RUNN and co-writer David Pramik, and sharing our experiences with them was a great way for us to channel our lives into music. We can’t thank both of them enough for being part of our musical journey.”

They’ll take the Pavilion stage at Firefly Music Festival on June 16, with additional tour dates to come.
