Jauz is a polarizing young bass music artist that has absolutely blown up in the last year due largely to his two smash hits “Rock The Party” and “Feel The Volume”. Sam Vogel originates from Marin California, and got his first shiny glimmer of fame with an outstanding set at Ultra Music Festival Miami back in March. Since then his popularity has exploded amongst bass music enthusiasts, who collectively call themselves The Shark Squad.
This new unreleased remix by Jauz is actually of another unreleased original track by Knife Party titled “PLUR Police”. The song first surfaced at Vogel’s Red Rocks set where he opened for Big Gigantic at Rowdytown4. Now a second, better quality version has been ripped from a recording of his set at Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas. The unreleased track is easily his heaviest work thus far in his youthful promising career. The drop features deep growling synths that reminded me a lot of Eptic’s style of music or the old Skrillex “brostep”. Much to the Life Is Beautiful crowd’s satisfaction, Vogel let the song play out twice, obliterating the audience twice in a row. I know I’m not alone when I say that I cannot wait for this to be officially released.
NGHTMRE is another equally young and talented DJ and producer like Jauz. His hit single “Street”, which was released on Mad Decent was the dynamite that got his explosive style of music blown into the EDM world’s collective ear. Since then his career has began expanding at a ridiculous rate, touring almost constantly, while still managing to release music on a pretty regular basis. His most recent releases include his joint remix of GTA’s “Red Lips” done with Slander as well as his own remix of Keys N Krates’ track “Dum Dee Dum”.
NGHTMRE was Diplo’s most recent guest DJ for his biweekly radio show Diplo and Friends on BBC. In his hour long mix, NGHTMRE played out 5 brand new unreleased IDs. The most noteworthy of these IDs was his collaboration with Boombox Cartel which they titled “Aftershock”. The track features the usual use of an angelic yet still heavy melody that we have come to expect from NGHTMRE. It begins with a full-fledged future bass sounding intro, which quickly transforms into a deep bellowing drop which draws a lot of parallels to one of his older tracks, “Warning”. In future news for NGHTMRE, his joint EP with Slander is officially being released on Mad Decent next Tuesday the 13th.
