Known for their masterfully produced feel-good tunes, SLUMBERJACK have been a household name in EDM since the release of their self-titled EP in late 2014. Since then, the duo has put out collaborations with the likes of industry leaders Alison Wonderland, What So Not, QUIX, and more, solidifying their already concrete presence in the scene.

Hot off the success of their ‘SARAWAK EP‘ released earlier this year, Australian duo SLUMBERJACK has teamed up with English artist Daktyl to release a powerful future bass inspired single on Monstercat. Featuring the passionate vocals of MOONZz, their track ‘Crucified’ caters to both the casual listener and dance music fanatic, leaving us confident that this piece will soon be heard on radio stations and mainstages alike for the foreseeable future. With SLUMBERJACK set to release another EP in early 2020, “Crucified” serves to prepare us for what is certain to be another exciting and successful year for both talented collaborators.

Alison Wonderland and QUIX strikes with eclectic remix package for their ‘TIME’ project

Alison Wonderland and QUIX strikes with eclectic remix package for their ‘TIME’ projectAlison Wonderland

“TIME” showed off a different side to Alison Wonderland and QUIX‘ collective musicality. Take for instance the former’s “High” with Enschway featuring Trippie Redd—an already festival-ready piece that QUIX managed to make even more explosive. The inspiration for “Time,” however, stemmed from a trip that lead to an idea to make a song that stretches time, thus leading to an unexpected aesthetic for their debut joint project. Now, a variety of remixes have extended the lifespan of the track, further stretching the project’s metaphysical clock.

Remixers include a low-end thumper from SLUMBERJACK, a serene cooler from Madnap, a house forward thriller from BARILAN, and a festival ready tweaker from Yvng Jalapeño. QUIX is set to release his brand new EP IDK [Vol. 1] this Friday off Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak, a four-track EP that brushes grimy and distorted tones onto effervescent, dark bass music.

First Listen: Slumberjack’s Holy Ship! bass voyage

It’s quite ironic that Slumberjack‘s name has the word “slumber” in it; the Australian makes music that is the antithesis of relaxing, but of course that was likely the reasoning behind their name choice. Instead, Slumberjack’s music is geared toward keeping people wide awake and, for lack of a better word, “turnt.” This is why their booking on Insomniac‘s resurrected Holy Ship! is perfect, especially for its 13.0 edition.

They’ve kindly shown fans a taste of what to expect come their at-sea takeover, and it’s quite the jaunt. They waste no time in getting wild with their track selection, opening with an angsty trap cut and moving forward from there. For an hour, Slumberjack pummel their fans with bricks of bass and future house — and the result is cramped necks from the inevitable headbanging that ensues. The burgeoning duo has certainly brought their A-game to this mix, and Dancing Astronaut is even more excited to see the tricks up their sleeve come Holy Ship!.

Slumberjack release debut single from forthcoming EP

Slumberjack release debut single from forthcoming EPSlumberjack Daggers

Known for their intense drops and bass dubstep fusions, Australian duo Slumberjack have diverted directions with newest collaboration, titled “Daggers.” The track is not at a loss for intensity, thanks to a commanding electronic framework, but the vocals are the focal point of the track. Rising Australian talent Machine Age linked up with the duo for the release.

The single is from Slumberjack’s forthcoming SARAWAK EP, which will be released via Monstercat. One half of the duo wrote on Twitter how surreal this release and the upcoming EP is for them. “I used to listen to Monstercat releases with awe when I was just starting out – I entered their remix competitions and looked up to their artists so much. I never imagined I’d be releasing an EP with them one day.”

“Daggers” is the first single from the album, and it’s certainly giving fans a lot to look forward to for the releases yet to come.

Ekali releases inaugural EP, ‘Crystal Eyes,’ through OWSLA, Big Beat, and Atlantic [Stream Here]

Ekali releases inaugural EP, ‘Crystal Eyes,’ through OWSLA, Big Beat, and Atlantic [Stream Here]Ekali Crystal Eyes 1

It seems with a single stroke of his pen, Ekali has swiftly solidified his leafy emblem near the crest of the EDM pyramid.

Securing momentous slots at both Ultra and EDC this year the Canadian producer seeks to consolidate his efforts with the release of his first-ever multitudinous body of work, the Crystal Eyes EP.

For an inaugural EP, it would be hard for an artist in the electronic circuit to fathom a better threesome of label-housings than an OWSLA, Big Beat, and Atlantic trifecta; Ekali has managed to acquire exactly that for this watershed notch in his still rather formative release history. A frequent and well sought-after collaborator, the Canadian producer hosts a series of esteemed guests to help the listener navigate the glistening Crystal Eyes topography, including K. Flay, Medasin, Elohim, and SLUMBERJACK. The release will coincide with a North American tour, making stops across major musical hotbeds in the US and Vancouver.

Ekali uses the EP to first and foremost demonstrate his ability to wander spacious experimental sonic terrains while primarily keeping one foot grounded in pop sensibility. His track with K. Flay, for example, sees the producer wield the songstress’s notoriously moody pop vocals to accentuate his woefully drawn out guitar chords and wistful synth twinkling. At the other end of Ekali’s emotional rainbow, with exquisitely nuanced support from Medasin and Elohim, “Forever,” invites the listener inside its halcyon fortress of bouncy, beat-privy idealism. Crystal Eyes is a glimpse inside Ekali’s all at once flourishing and fragmented inner world. The EP functions terrifically as a hallmark of Ekali’s affinity for wide-reaching emotion, unfettered energy, and a perceptive level of adventurousness when it comes to his ever-evolving sound design.
