Matthew Dear emerges from hiatus with two new songs ahead of new albumMatthew Dear Bunny 1

Experimental electronica aficionado Matthew Dear has announced he is putting out his first studio album since 2012:  Bunny, a Ghostly International production. To accompany the news, he has shared two new original tracks, the aesthetically adverse “Bunny’s Dream” and “Echo.”

The 14-track project, due out October 12 of this year, is to include the previously-released “Modafinil Blues” and collaborative offering with indie alternative duo, Tegan and Sara, “Bad Ones,” foreshadowing the likely complex, highly nuanced nature of the upcoming album.

In a recent release, Dear explains the reasoning behind the album’s en-Dear-ing title choice”

“I’m calling this one Bunny. As always, it’s got a little bit of everything that makes me who I am. Why Bunny? Fundamentally, I love the way the word looks and sounds. I love the way it rolls off the mind and onto the tongue… Bunnies are cute. Bunnies are weird. They’re soft. They’re sexy. They’re lucky. They wildly procreate. They trick hunters, but get tricked by turtles. They lead you down holes…”

The two starkly contrasting tracks serve to represent both the whimsical and gritty sides of Dear’s productions, respectively.

01. Bunny’s Dream
02. Calling
03. Can You Rush Them

Mija releases new heavy track featuring Tegan & Sara

This post was originally published on this site

Since Mija’s break out in 2014, the pioneering DJ and producer has toured the world, headlined some of the biggest festivals, and proved herself an equal to her fellow male counterparts with collaborations and remixes that have established her as a force in the industry. Driven by the mantra of ‘fk genres,’ Mija has finally released her third single, ‘Secrets’ featuring the smooth angelic voices of the Grammy-nominated indie pop duo, Tegan and Sara. The genre-bending track draws influence from Netsky and Subfocus, and takes the listener on a hard-hitting drum and bass adventure. The quick drums are balanced with deep industrial sounds and heavy LFOs to keep the listener eager and ready for what comes next. Lucky for the old-school bassheads out there, the second drop switches into half-time and brings us all back to the reigning days of heavy dubstep. ‘Secrets’ is surely a turn away from Mija’s future bass song ‘Better’ with Vindata, or ‘Crank It,’ her deep house single with Lil Jon and Ghastly. But after taking a listen, it’s a definite turn for the best as Mija flexes her versatility as a producer and gives us a glimpse of her bass-heavy side.

Mija is happy to save her fans a few bucks, and the song is available for free download below:
