Shadient remixes Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’Artworks 000365359512 9n7pef T

Nearly a year after his 2017 breakout EP as the first signee to Mat Zo‘s Mad Zoo imprint, Shadient has made his intent clear in the music world, and it’s dark, gritty and acidic. To prove himself further, Shadient has taken on Virtual Self’s frequently remixed hit, “Ghost Voices.” While the original from the Porter Robinson alter ego pays homage to the house and trance that were the catalysts of today’s electronic music, Shadient brings the track into 2018 with trudging kicks and brooding amplifications on the original production.

Effectively. the young producer introduces us to a new song entirely, with an equally futuristic flair as its predecessor. Look out for the edit in his sets, as he stated his intent on rinsing it throughout the coming future.

Mountain Terrace takes ‘Ghost Voices’ for a high-speed run

This post was originally published on this site

Little is known about Japanese producer, Mountain Terrace, aside from his solitary, though impressive, upload on SoundCloud: a drum ‘n’ bass remix of Virtual Self‘s “Ghost Voices.” Released just on the cusp of 2018, “Ghost Voices” acquired instant applaud, serving as the masthead for Porter Robinson‘s newly instated, “neo-trance” alias, Virtual Self.

Though the track has been heavily remixed in recent months, few have opted, like Mountain Terrace has, for such a dramatic tempo change. MT immediately propels the listener into a full-tilt drum ‘n’ bass whirlwind of an intro. However, he then moves the rendition into VS’ original, weighty, and slightly slowed trance interlude to lend the track a soothing sentiment before erupting again into an unhinged vortex of amen breaks.

HARD Summer delivers mind-bending 2018 lineup loaded with special back-to-back performances

This post was originally published on this site

HARD Summer is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming edition of the festival, led by one of the event’s most memorable lineups to date. Slated for August 4 – 5, and returning to a familiar venue at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, HARD’s flagship event is sticking to their tried and true playbook of marquee dance and hip-hop match ups, laced together by the underground’s finest newcomer talents, dropping off a lineup of over 70 acts. Best of all, 2018 now is officially the year of the back-to-back.

Marshmello, Travis Scott, Louis The Child and Porter Robinson‘s Virtual Self project are all tapped for headlining duties, along with , Louis Vuitton’s newly-signed artistic director and moonlighting DJ Virgil Abloh, and Flosstradamus. In between massive headliners and top-card highlights that include Rick Ross, Slushii, Ekali, San Holo and more, the talent roster is littered with never-before-seen back-to-back performances that could honestly form their own insane lineup.

Diplo and Dillon Francis will share the stage for the first time, and Jauz will join Zeds Dead for a co-headlining slot, Snails and Kill The Noise are apparently allowed to perform together, despite how dangerous that sounds. Four Color Zack and DJ Craze are bringing their 2¢ project to HARD Summer as well as Escapade, Ardalan and Walker & Royce‘s Dirtybird mashup. Borgore and Getter are pairing for an unholy union, and Baauer and A-Trak are joining for another one of their rare tag-team bouts. And these are just the back-to-back sets.

Additional firepower from Mija, k?d, Tokimonsta, Madam X, Joyryde and many more round out one of HARD’s best bookings to date. And with the festival boasting added amenities, updated safety and comfort features, plus a hilarious trailer that pins Diplo as the “Dawson’s Creek looking motherf****r” he is, we’re looking at what could be the most over-the-top edition of HARD Summer yet.
