BangOn! is one of NYC’s hottest underground dance music crews, and lucky for us their ELEMENTS Music & Arts Festival returns on August 13 2016 with a killer lineup featuring Gramatik, Klingande, Claptone, Mija, Oshi, and more! “On August 13 2016, the underground is coming to play outdoors.” BangOn! describes the secret Brooklyn location as […]
Located on the Foreshore of the quiet beach town of Newcastle, just two hours drive north of Sydney, the brand new This That festival made its successful debut on Halloween. Marketed as an event “where music meets culture,” the festival featured an army of food trucks, boutique market-style shops, and plenty of craft beer and […]
Lunice, of TNGHT fame, comes in hot with a new remix of G Jones & Bleep Bloop’s “Mind.” Lunice flips traditional edm production on its head with this track- The melody repeats itself over and over, in varying synths, instead letting the percussion and bass lead the progression of the track. It’s hard to explain, […]
Producing-wise, Baauer has been all but MIA this past year, but thankfully decided to release a new original, “GoGo!” just in time for Halloween. “GoGo!” features a variation of that trendy “future house” synth, but over a classic Baauer trap beat, it sounds fresh as ever. Game is a well established rapper whose heyday was […]
Troyboi has been gaining a lot of attention recently and reaffirms his position as one of the most innovative trap lords in the game right now with “London,” collabing with fellow Londoner Snooki Sound. Released through Mad Decent, “London” goes in with an eerie ambient soundscape and a slow-burning, low-key build. The drop hard and […]
Listen Out is one of Australia’s premiere music festivals which annually draws talent from across Australia and the globe. The Festival just kicked off in Melbourne yesterday and hits each of Australia’s major cities, including Sydney this coming Friday, October 6th. This year, Listen Out features a lot of American and Australian talent in a […]
Branching off from the Spundose moniker, Omwom just dropped his debut album titled “Cathexis.” This album takes the listener on a trans-dimensional auditory journey through eight powerful tunes. Each track brilliantly blends frequencies low and high with thumping psychedelic grooves. My favorite track to groove to, if I had to choose, would be “The Synergist.” The track […]
There’s no better source for get-down funky jam music than Lettuce, and the band’s original track “Madison Square” captures the quintessential Lettuce energy present at every performance. “Madison Square” just got an epic electronic re-work with Brooklyn’s own Space Jesus doing what he does best, intensifying the energy and low-frequency fluctuations in his productions. Space Jesus effectively […]
It’s always refreshing to hear multi-cultural music styles blended together to create a completely distinct vibe. That is the aim of New York City’s Metabards, a musical duo that fuses psychedelic beats and rhythms with electro and instrumental elements. The duo plans to release a debut album early next year that focuses on retellings of classic […]
It’s difficult to put into words the kind of emotions and energy that Ott. puts into his musical creations. Every instrumental synth, rhythm, melody, track, and ultimately album serve to evoke an ethereal experience that takes the listener on an otherworldly journey. Ott.’s latest album, “Fairchildren,” is one of his best works to date. The album opens with […]
KRNE has become one of the most consistent Trap/Future Bass producers in the game these days, and is finally earning the attention he deserves. One strategy for constantly keeping his sound fresh? Frequent collaborations. This time KRNE teams up with QUIX, a heavy trap producer out of Auckland, New Zealand. The harpsichord intro gives way […]
Up-and-comers Jilbare, BUCKETS!, and Souheil recently connected and flipped Houston Rapper and Kanye West protege Travi$ Scott’s breakout single “Don’t Play” off of his acclaimed debut project, “Days Before Rodeo.” The real success of this remix is owed to the complete change of tone- The original “Don’t Play” is a much more hype; but these […]
Coming in hot after his killer remix/cover of “BBHMM,” Paris-based up-and-comer FAB just released his first original in a while, titled “Why You Leavin.” The drop is unexpected and trippy, with a solid beat to vibe to. I think FAB’s production would stand fine on its own, but Vann’s vocals definitely add pop appeal and […]
Trap star NGHTMRE just released his highly anticipated single, “Street” via Mad Decent, and you can expect to hear it in every trap set you attend this summer. The buildup made me a bit nervous that this track would just be pulled out of the festival-trap hole that I felt NGHTMRE had fallen into, but […]
Alexander Lewis is one my favorite trap artists out there, and this week we’re lucky because he released a new original- “Who Got It ft. S’natra.” S’natra lays down some nasty verses and Lewis’s beat is really excellent. Really great bass and hi hat work on this beat which is definitely the turnup track of […]
Thunder Gumbo: Cult of the Sacred Cowboy was the party I had been waiting for without even knowing it: the perfect underground! Here are the ingredients that made up this magic gumbo!
Daniel Dubb’s new album, “Pieces of the Past” is truly a warm and soulful soundscape bridging the gap between house and hip-hop influenced breakbeats, two genres that aren’t often combined but blend together seamlessly.
Masego & Medacin’s “Shut up and Groove” is the first track off their new Pink Polo EP. Medacin absolutely kills the beat, blending styles to keep things funky and fresh. Smooth sax, glitchy syths, a dope beat and what sounds like a birdcall go well with Masego’s vocals. Very stylish. Soulection labelee Esta. is in […]
Check out Nero's track 'Two Minds' from their upcoming album 'Between II Worlds'
GOLDWATER is an up and coming future trap artist you should definitely keep an eye on. His remix of Misogi & Andrea’s “LOVE U” brings the track to another level of creativity. It’s very chill, but also exciting because of its constantly evolving progression. Excellent mixing, beat manipulation, and measured synth work makes this track […]
