Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 73

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 73Deters 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.


After months of anticipation, Gammer‘s much-hyped remix of Ran-D’s “Zombie” has finally arrived. Its comment section is full of fans saying “finally!” – and with good reason. Gammer plays up the emotive intensity of the original, which was initially performed by The Cranberries. Ran-D redid the vocals himself, and Gammer uses them to drum up anticipation for the quickly building drop. It’s ready for festival stages around the world with its energy-loaded hardcore beat.

The Lion King‘s “Circle of Life” has been making its way into the EDM scene for years. It’s popped up in Skrillex sets, been remixed by Mat Zo, and most recently, revamped by Wuki. Uploaded to his Wukileaks channel on January 10, this edit of the iconic track sees the classic introduction worked into a grooving house anthem. It’s primed for the dance floor and guaranteed to have all listeners embracing their inner “hakuna matata” attitude — even 24 years later.

Russia’s Sound Quelle was a huge presence on Silk Music’s channel in 2018, so label has kicked off their 2019 with a three-track EP from the multi-faceted artist. In the Esalia EP, he’s teamed up with Referna for tracks like “Lauria,” an ethereal deep house number rooted in an easygoing bassline and dreamy vocals. This nearly six-minute track has an otherworldly feel to it and features a minimalist synth melody that drifts in and out of progressive beat.

In their latest, Win & Woo take a journey across the pond to craft a new original, “Tea Time.” The duo have fashioned an infectious house beat around a catchy British vocal sample that declares “it’s time for tea,” making this track one of their most entertaining to date with the help of some cowbell. Win & Woo have called the track “something fun for being awesome to us in 2018,” promising even more to come in 2019.

In his debut Mad Zoo appearance, Canada’s Brock Wilson has created an intriguing and diverse two-track EP. “hollow shell” is a thrilling and slightly spooky track that showcases the artist’s curiosity and experimentation in a variety of electronic styles. From glitchy, grinding bass to an eerie, minimalist melody, Wilson shows us what he’s all about. “I’ve never really been good at making bangers or high energy songs, but I’ve always been interested in tight mixing and sound design.” It shows, in the best possible way.

Premiere: JP Saxe – Anybody Else (Win & Woo Remix)

This post was originally published on this site


Chicago-based duo Win & Woo have had a stellar 2017. From an array of successful singles like “Chicago” with Bryce Fox to partnering with Blue Moon brewing for “Constellation” to their current tour with fellow Windy City natives Louis the Child, Nick Winholt and Austin Woo haven’t slowed down in the slightest as the year has progressed.

They’re heading into the holiday season with a catchy remix of JP Saxe’s “Anybody Else.” The remix takes a minimalist approach to the dark, sultry feel of the original track, stripping it down to JP Saxe’s vocals and a simple drum pattern for the verses. Their interpretation of “Anybody Else” is more lighthearted than the original, giving it more of a playful feel.

JP Saxe shared his thoughts on the origins of the track and Win & Woo’s rework of it.

“I’ve been a songwriter for a few years now, and going into sessions almost everyday, I noticed this overwhelming theme both in the studio and on the radio of what I call, ‘you hurt me, but I like it’ love songs. I think that’s getting a little played out. Yet there is obviously something very human about wanting something even more because you think you shouldn’t want it. I’d like to think ‘Anybody Else’ is a slightly more sophisticated twist on that concept…it’s leaning into the forbidden-ness in a self aware way, like you’re creating the barriers on purpose just so you can both enjoy breaking them. The original version plays into the sexy, mysterious tone of that feeling. Win and Woo’s remix plays into the fun of it, and the fun of it is very real.”

Louis The Child talk tour life, Rick & Morty, and

This post was originally published on this site

Freddy Kennett and Robby Hauldren aren’t your average producers. Already conquering a large portion of the world on a number of tours, collaborations with multiple artists and a fanbase that grows exponentially, the two have experienced enormous growth over their years in music. Rising from bedroom producers to international success didn’t come overnight, but these two made it look easy.

Better known by their stage name, Louis The Child, the boys demonstrate their own unique workings of future bass and continuously find ways to transcend their positivity and love for life into their music — a remarkable feat that not many can achieve. They draw inspiration from some of the leading names in dance music, like Flume and Madeon to forge their own unique sound, undergoing exceptional growth throughout the past two years as a result. From performing on stages at some of the biggest festivals across the world to their colorful touch on their remixes of Miike Snow’s “Genghis Khan” and Ty Dolla $ign’s hip-hop anthem “Blasé“, global musical domination is not far from their reach.

Their nation-wide ‘Last To Leave’ tour is considered by many as Louis The Child’s most successful tour yet, with the duo having brought out a multitude of friends and rising artists to open for them. Ashe, Joey Purp, Lauv, Point Point, Louis Futon, Prince Fox, Party Pupils, and Win & Woo offer different musical styles as they join Hauldren and Kennett for the ride. Currently traveling across North America in the midst of this tour, they took some time to chat with Dancing Astronaut after their Toronto show, where they dig into the depths of their past tours, ways to stay inspired and connecting with their fans, and more to reveal the personalities beyond the happy-go-lucky Chi-town boys that one sees on stage.

From the multiple tours you two have embarked on over the past few years, what has changed about your shows, and your stage presence?

Freddy: We’ve gotten a lot more comfortable and a lot more clear with what we wanted to present to the people at the show. I think also we switched from CDJs to Ableton Live recently, and that’s been a big change in helping us grow the set in a way. We have a lot more possibilities now, and I think in general our connection with the crowd has grown every single night that we play a show. We’re always looking to improve something with the show every single time that we play a show, and it feels like every show just keeps getting better.

 

Robby: I think also our stage production has gotten a lot bigger and crazier. Now that we’re playing in bigger rooms and stuff, there’s kind of an expectation to bring more production and to put on a much bigger show with lights and video, and I think we definitely stepped up to the challenge and really brought it up another notch with this tour.

 

Freddy: Also, we’ve kind of gone from at the start of thinking of about being DJs, to now where we really just want to put on the best show we can rather than solely a DJ performance or a musical performance.

Besides having your photographer document your shows, we learned that you also have given out disposable cameras at shows to collect shots from your fans perspectives. Where did this idea come from, and how have the results turned out?

Robby: I want to say it was around last fall when we toured — I believe like someone brought it up to us that they heard of someone else doing it a while back, and we thought, “Damn, that’s a really interesting idea.” Give people in the crowd a disposable and see what they capture and what it’s like to be in the crowd at one of our shows. Obviously, we’ll never know what it’s like to be in our own crowd, so I think it’s really cool to give the people attending the show a camera and say, “Hey, take a photo and pass it to someone else.” It’s really cool to see what people capture. We posted a bunch of the photos we got from past tours, and it’s just cool to see what moments people want to capture and what about the show connects with them. Whether it’s a funny selfie, or if it’s a picture of one of us getting real close to someone in the crowd, or whatever it is, it’s nice to see the perspective of someone attending the show and we continue to do it. We don’t really always get the cameras back, but when we do, we love developing them and checking ’em out.

Have you guys had any photo that specifically stood out to you?

Robby: One was of someone’s middle finger. Nothing crazy, it’s all just the vibe we’re looking for in the crowd.

 

Freddy: A lot of people just being happy, that’s the one thing I noticed. A lot of people just smiling and looking like they’re really enjoying themselves, which is exactly what we want from our shows is for people to be together and enjoy themselves, and enjoy the company around them.

Speaking of photos, Robby, you also have your own Instagram account for your photography. Do you have any specific inspiration when you’re out shooting?

Robby: Capturing whatever’s around us, really. I think we live an interesting life and this stuff’s really only gonna happen once, so I think it’s really important to capture it. I’m a big fan of rock memorabilia, so I always love taking cool photos, seeing old merch from my favorite rock bands, for example. The only way to really keep that going is to take it upon yourself sometimes, and go out and capture what’s happening aroundyou.

Tell us about life on a tour bus. What have you both learned about each other, after being stuck on the bus for hours at a time?

Freddy: It’s kind of like summer camp for us. I kind of learned that this last tour when we were on the bus with Imad Royal and our photographer Collin Miller — just all of us together waking up at the same time, and making music. Because we have speakers on the bus, we can make music ’till whatever time we want; sometimes it’s 4:00am, sometimes it’s 9:00am. The bunks are all pitch black so you can just sleep until whenever and just play the show, then make more music the next night. That’s really fun for me cause I stay productive and creative, and work on making new, fun music while on the road. Touring has been really fun and the show aspect of things just gets cooler every night. After like 4-5 shows in a row, you get tired and it’s just normal now. You get a little tired, you get the rest stage, then you’re excited to get back to doing shows.

 

Robby: Like a cycle almost! You do 4-5 shows in a row, and you feel tired as fuck after that and then you have like two days off, and by the second day off you’re like “I wanna do a show again”. It’s nice to kinda always be on and always be doing something.

That’s great! Have you guys learned anything about each other, like particular habits, that you wouldn’t have known before, from being on the bus?

Freddy: I mean we’re all growing and adding on new habits and trying to be the best selves we can be, and be the most creative so we’re all kinda just inspiring each other. We all went out and got practice pads to practice drums and a bass guitar, so Robby’s practicing bass and we’re all constantly writing and freestyling together, trying to improve on all fronts musically. Also, I’ve just been meditating and reading a lot of books and trying to stay active in all ways.

 

Robby: I don’t know, there aren’t really specific habits for this tour that I’ve learned about Freddy or anyone. It’s almost the same — we’ve been doing this for so long together that we have a very good understanding of each other, and it’s nice to have that.

 

Freddy: Also with everyone on tour is very loving. No matter who you are, we can get along with you very well. Who cares about your habits? As long as everyone’s in a good mood and loving each other, we can provide the best tour and have the best time all together.

We saw that you guys had dressed up as Rick and Morty for your set at Voodoo Fest – did you guys get up to any shenanigans this Halloween?

Freddy: We were in New Orleans!

 

Robby: Yeah, we were in New Orleans for that. We went to a cool warehouse rave that Fatboy Slim was playing at, after we played in New York. That was definitely a shenanigan.

 

Freddy: The Rick and Morty costumes are really funny though, we all have some inside jokes now from the voices and we did some interviews in character. But yeah, it was just really fun. I like Halloween a lot.

Was this your first year being on tour for Halloween?

Robby: This wasn’t our first tour on Halloween.

 

Freddy: We played Something Wicked last year.

 

Robby: Yeah we did. We’ve definitely done our fair share of Halloween shows and played on Halloween.

 

Freddy: I’d say we’ve only played like one or two years of Halloween shows, but they get better every year especially as we grow.

 

rick n morty ltc

You both update your Soundcloud daily with tunes from your friends and other artists, but tell us about both of your current, go-to songs when you guys have time to chill out.

Freddy: I know we both love Knox Fortune, “Lil Thing”  and that it’s one of our favorites from this year. I have a playlist of about 300 of my classic songs from all across time that I’ve always been shuffling through to stay inspired, but I love modern indie, electro-pop, kinda more indie like Polish Girl, Neon Indian, Passion Pit, stuff like that.

 

Robby: I’ve definitely been listening to Billy Island lately, their song “Ocean Eyes” fucking kills me. In a good way. Patient 99 by Blaise Railey is also a jam and a half, I love that track.

 

Freddy: Oliver Tree is always killing it, “Enemy” is really cool.

 

Robby: RAYE is super cool too.

 

Freddy: Yeah RAYE, the singer is awesome.

 

Robby: The new Odesza album is great.

 

Freddy: But Knox Fortune is one of our favorites lately.

Speaking of songs, in your “Candy” mix you guys put out, you have an endless goldmine of unreleased tracks. Will any of those officially come to light in the future?

Freddy: I’d say maybe a few of them might come out with some of the artists we’ve worked with. I think we’re constantly working on new stuff, but we’ll probably put out new Candy tapes, or maybe call it a different name. We’ll probably be putting out a good amount of beat tapes every so often. I really like that we put out Candy and it has the visual companion, it kinda separated stuff that we’ve released on Spotify and iTunes from these ideas and these cool ear-candy that you can listen to elsewhere, so there’s a bunch of different types of things that you can get from Louis The Child. I like having songs on Spotify that are real songs, but also having separate releases that might be things that please or excite you for the next release.

You said that you were looking to release more Candy mixes in the future?

Freddy: Yeah, I dunno if we’ll call them Candy but we’ll definitely put out new installments of some beat tapes.

 

Robby: Yeah, we definitely haven’t slowed down on our music-making so I’m sure that if you give it some time, we’ll probably regroup and be like “Shit, we have all these lil things, let’s make another one.”

 

Freddy: But no plans on it.

 

Robby: No plans, but if it happens naturally, that’s the best way.

On that note, your Last to Leave tour has been wildly successful and it seems that your fanbase only grows at an exponential rate. Besides some new music, what do you guys hope to accomplish in 2018?

Robby: We definitely have a couple more releases planned for 2017 that we’re really excited about. In 2018, we’re going to do a lot more touring too and get to a lot of places that we haven’t been to before, which is really exciting for us. We’re slowly but surely working towards an album, and I think the goal is definitely to put out an album in 2018. It’s still very much in the beginning phases, and we’re still really figuring out everything about it, but we definitely want to.

 

Freddy: It’s in the beginning phases in terms of adding things, we’re still working on the arranging of the album, but it’s not in the beginning phases in terms of like, we have like 30 ideas in a folder that we’re thinking for it and we’ve already tried to take a few out of it to try and put it together, and we still have a good amount. It’s coming though.

 

Robby: For sure 2018 an album, and venturing to a lot of new places to perform.

ltc more crowd

ITtowards the end of your shows lately, when you guys play “It’s Strange,” you both take a moment to sit down on the stage. Why is that?

  Freddy: It’s a mixture of the idea naturally coming to Robby. Originally he would do it but after a few shows, I ended up sitting down with him and it kinda created a really cool moment. When she starts talking about “letting down your walls” we’d do it, and I feel like it’s a really close moment where I end up looking straight at the front-row and everyone in the crowd. You can kinda see them react to it, and it feels really close between the crowd and us.

 

Robby: I think another thing too is that it’s the last song of the show, and at that point there’s nothing really left that we have to do. We don’t have a next song that we have to think about transitioning in, it’s kind of a moment where we can sit down and be like “Alright, these are the last few minutes of the show, we want to spend it as close to you. We want to give you our full attention, ’cause after these last couple of minutes, this whole thing is done.” It’s nice to do that, and a way to really give our full attention to the people our in the crowd.

 

Freddy: And a good final moment; a good send off.

Lastly, Robby, why exactly do you take your shoes off when you guys perform? Is it that much comfier?

Robby: Yeah it’s a comfort thing. I used to DJ in my room and I wouldn’t wear shoes then. I just started doing it on stage a bit, and it started to turn into a thing where people noticed and we’re like “Whoa, Robby doesn’t wear shoes!”, and I was like “Well, guess I’ll keep doing it!”

 

Freddy: It’s a funny thing cause ever since we first started playing shows and there was no one there, he’s always done it.

 

Robby: It’s also one of Fatboy Slim’s rules of DJing, I guess you can say I try to follow.

 

 

Tickets for the rest of their Last To Leave tour are available online.

Win & Woo – Gold ft Shaylen

This post was originally published on this site

After a successful summer that saw the release of two singles (“Constellation” and “Chicago“) and a remix package, Chicago duo Win & Woo are kicking off autumn with an instant classic called “Gold.”

“Gold” features alluring vocals from singer/songwriter Shaylen layered over the duo’s signature bobbing beat. Though the song has a slightly darker vibe than its predecessors, it’s still instantly recognizable as a Win & Woo track. The producers allow Shaylen’s enticing voice to shine through the verses of “Gold” and bring in a compelling bass line in the chorus to guide the listener through each well-orchestrated segment of the song. With each new production, Nick Winholt and Austin Woo prove the beauty is in the details — and “Gold” is no exception.

Catch Win & Woo on select dates of Louis the Child‘s Last to Leave Tour, which kicked off Oct. 8 and continues through Dec. 16.
