Minneapolis’ snow-capped NYE festival is back, returning this year for its fourth annual installment. Snowta 2018 featured Skrillex in his return to the festival circuit alongside acts like NGHTMRE, Chief Keef, Subtronics, EPROM and to name a few. With a stacked lineup, the festival’s third production was packaged with an array of extreme sports, including Snowboard Rail Jam and Freestyle Motorcross.

However, midwestern bass heads are in for a real treat this time around, as the full NYE 2019 roster includes a rumbling concoction of 1788-L, Big Wild, Dion Timmer, Zomboy, Juice WRLD, and more. Other festival ammenities have yet to be announced, but if attendees are looking to hit the slopes for a bit, there’s a variety of options in the Minneapolis area.

Hosted by Zeds Dead-owned imprint Deadbeats, Snowta Festival 2019 takes place on December 30 – 31 to ring in the New Year at famed Minnesota venue The Armory. GA and VIP tickets are available now. See the full lineup below.

Good Morning Mix: Revisit Adventure Club’s explosive ‘Superheroes Anonymous 6’ mixAdventure Club Facebook Official

Anyone who knows Adventure Club has heard or has at least vaguely associated them with their mixtape series, Superheroes Anonymous. The duo released the first edition of Superheroes Anonymous back in 2013; the rest is history. Since then, the mixes have grown virtually synonymous with Adventure Club themselves, with the two producers putting forward the best of melodic dubstep, electro-house, trap, and hip-hop into one hour of cathartic heaven.

Now, we revisit one of Adventure Club’s most iconic mixes, Superheroes Anonymous 6: Road to Red Rocks. Road to Red Rocks showcases Adventure Club’s versatility at its best, with each track traversing through a sonic journey. Starting off with proper intensity, the mix delivers bass music from Barely Alive, Zomboy, and NGHTMRE and trap tunes like Styles&Complete & EXSSV’s “Starstruck” and Father’s “Wrist” before leveling out into melodic picks from San Holo, Sweater Beats, and Cashmere Cat. Adventure Club takes the opportunity to shift the momentum from filth to feels and energy to stillness over the course of the mix, incorporating their beloved signature sound throughout and gracefully closing out with Gallant‘s “Open Up”.

Zomboy sends listeners to bass heaven with new track, ‘Hide N’ Seek’

Zomboy sends listeners to bass heaven with new track, ‘Hide N’ Seek’Zomboy Hide N Seek

Zomboy has resolved to end the year with valor, by way of a stream of releases before he takes off for his 2019 Rott N’ Roll Tour.

To cap off a lustrous 2018, Zomboy has locked and loaded “Hide N’ Seek,” via Never Say Die to send listeners into 2019 buzzing. The song combines punching bass blasts with an intense set of drops that are likely to boggle brains near and far on the tour. The monstrous synths take over the listener’s consciousness to create an all-encompassing burst of decadent bass heaven.

It’s highly likely “Hide N’ Seek” is indeed the track to which he is referring; and in that case, much to Zomboy fans’ relief. The German dubstep veteran’s newest track is proof that while fans can run, they can’t hid from Zomboy and his un-dead intensity

11 things we learned from Wolfgang Gartner’s recent Reddit AMAWolfgang Gartner

Wolfgang Gartner rose from the ashes with his new Medicine EP that showcased his original, complex-electro style with modern day bass house elements. The veteran EDM producer stopped by Reddit to allow users to ask him whatever’s on their minds. A lot of users wondered about production techniques, collaborations/inspirations, and more intimate facts about the man behind the music. Below are 13 things learned from the event.

1) Wolfgang and Skrillex have had major impacts on each other’s sounds throughout their careers. He even got a sneak peek at the watershed Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites. Wolfgang would even follow up on “Devil’s Den” if the opportunity presented itself.

Zomboy does his part to keep bass music fresh with new release ‘Lone Wolf’

Bass producer Zomboy is inching closer to his 30-stop 2019 Rott N’ Roll Tour, steadily releasing a a full-fledged assortment of tracks to capture fans’ interest before the North American leg.

His latest is titled “Lone Wolf.” The track immediately introduces a catchy synth progression that lures the listener into its sonorous grasp. Instrumentals build over the top of the intro, ultimately falling into a heavy dubstep drop that would meld swimmingly in a high intensity live set. The heavy bassline is aptly able to maintain the melodic elements of the synth progression well into the production’s conclusion.

The producer spoke to Billboard about the state of bass music, and how he is trying to stay unique in a space that is slowly becoming oversaturated.

“The bass music scene, however wonderful and broad, can often get a little tired,” Zomboy says“This is only to be expected when something this popular attracts so many new and hungry producers. In the current climate a lot of the groove and energy has been substituted for a harder, simpler and more aggressive sound.”
