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.”

DA Presents: ’30 Days of Fright’ featuring REZZ, Gesaffelstein, Noisia, Drezo, and more [Playlist]

DA Presents: ’30 Days of Fright’ featuring REZZ, Gesaffelstein, Noisia, Drezo, and more [Playlist]SPOOKS PLAYLIST 1

Grab a mask, slam back some candy corn, and get primed to get spooky: it’s October and officially witching season. Electronic music fanatics might be creatures of the night all year round, but there’s something so undeniably righteous about the Halloween season that makes the rapturous roar of dance music even more spellbinding. Whether in the form of diabolic dubstep or demonically deviant techno, the advent of electronic music has given the world some of its most truly terrifying tunes. In that vein, the Dancing Astronaut terror squad is proud to present 30 Days of Fright, our most dastardly dance music favorites for the spookiest month of the year.

By Asher Norris and Bella Bagshaw 


Surrender your consciousness and step inside REZZ‘s world of swirling asphyxia with “Relax.”

Feel your blood begin to bubble and your pulse hectically hasten as BlackGummy and Brooks’s “Neverdeader” breathes a bit of electronic hellfire.

Stream if you dare, as this flame-throwing dubstep track from Kill The Noise, “Black Magic,” will leave your eardrums scorched, but entirely satiated.

Zeds Dead offers up the score for entertainment of the entirely un-dead variety with their timelessly terrifying, “Demons.”

Careful – Megan James’s delectably delicate voice may seem perfectly benevolent, but make no mistake: lofty pipes like hers are witchy by nature.

ZHU plays maestro for all things that boogie and bump in the night with “Nightcrawler.”

Taste the psychedelic strangeness of An-Ten-Nae and Alice D.’s “Raindrops On Roses,” and fall into their preternatural purgatory.

Ever wanted to dance with the devil himself? Habstrakt‘s harrowing house track, “She Goes,” is an opportunity to do just that.

Zomboy invites you to venture through his dubstep-riddled zombie apocalypse with “Ressurected.”

Crowned prince of menacing sound design, Drezo sprinkles a ghastly vocal cut and some unearthly growls in one of his most downright evil releases, “Dead.”

Ivy Lab puts a wickedly delicious spin on an already-crazed Noisia classic, “Tentacles.”

Bask in the eerie ecstasy of Eekkoo and Forrest’s pulsating house production, “Preach.”

NERO solidifies their title as masters of destruction and drum ‘n’ bass with “Doomsday.”

Slithering and psychotic, Noisia’s “Lilith’s Club” will summon spooky sentiments from listeners across the board.

Catch a case of the techno scaries with Gesaffelstein‘s devilishly danceable “Viol.”

Magic Sword wields triumphant electrowave, “In The Face Of Evil,” to fend off even the most nefarious of forces in the days leading up to this All Hallow’s Eve.

Phantogram‘s off-kilter ambiance from “Funeral Pyre,” is the ideal supernatural soundscape, topped with seductive static and levitation-inducing guitar chords.

An undoubtedly foreseen, but fundamental addition to the list, deadmau5‘s “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” keeps the freaky, phantasmic fun flying all season long.


Float through the ectoplasm of The Upside Down with this exquisitely melodic synthwave track direct from the second Stranger Things soundtrack.

We’re not really sure what Moody Good is investigating in the malignantly-sampled “This Is The Investigation,” but we’re pretty sure it’s not natural.

Step inside Pryda‘s low-lit techno tunnel and experience the roaring mania of “Rebel XX.”

Those with a predilection for the creepy crawly end of the electronic continuum need only submit themselves to Knife Party‘s iconic “Centipede.”

Street Fever’s winding techno musings inside “Dispose” may be simplistic, but they’ll leave listeners reeling with haunted rejoice.

Feed Me‘s two-headed trap/dubstep hybrid “Pink Lady” will have you seeing phantom strobes well into the afterlife.

It’s virtually impossible to overload on REZZ tracks during any month, but it’s especially tricky this time of year. Her immortal state of “Delusion” thrusts listeners below ground, where the most formidable forces can frolic freely.

Virtual Riot unleashes a bloodcurdling, cinematic ruckus with zombie-apocalypse-themed, “Haunted.”

Names are not at all deceiving as Shadient takes Wavedash and Quest‘s unnervingly vocalized “Devil Music” for ransom.

Coast the un-departed synth-pop streets of Dance With The Dead’s chillingly regal “Nightdrive.”

Spirits loom overhead, as Stephan Bodzin’s “Singularity” permeates shuddersome sounds of uncertainty.

The evil computers of the underworld unite on Knife Party’s riot-conjuring, “Internet Friends.”


There’s too many spooky dance cuts to round up all at once, alas, we’ve got you going with a pretty good start. Keep the spooks in rotation all month long, and don’t forget to mix in “Monster Mash” a few times to get into the spirit of things this season. Stream the full 30 Days of Fright collection below.

Zomboy fires off spine-tingling new single, ‘Rebel Bass’

Zomboy fires off spine-tingling new single, ‘Rebel Bass’Zomboy Rebel Bass Single

It’s comforting to know that some things fans can always count on. Zomboy releasing neck-breaking, no-holds-barred dubstep unquestionably falls into that category. Bass music fans haven’t had new solo Zomboy to blast since 2017’s Rott & Roll Pt. 1 EP. That finally changes with a new single out via Never Say Records, aptly called “Rebel Bass.”

Buzzing pads opens things up as the stage is set for destruction, and a multi-part build evolves with pounding drums and the producer’s textbook vocal samples. As the chaos reaches its climax, a pitched-down voice heralds the track’s inevitable descent: “Rott n’ roll bitch, this is Armageddon.” The first drop detonates with sub-shattering bass and ear-piercing growls. For a brief moment, there’s a break from the madness – but the bass returns for another dose of classic Zomboy.

The ominous horror-movie pre-drop vocal could very well mean a Rott & Roll Pt. 2 is on its way soon. Either way, “Rebel Bass” is one of the purest dubstep releases we’ve heard from Zomboy since his massive 2016 hit “Like A Bitch.”

Mutterings of lobster corndogs ran rampant,
