Kai Wachi – Vivacity [Free Download]: Crazy Dubstep / Trap Hybrid

vivacity

The level of sound design Kai Wachi is on isn’t even funny. When it comes to morphing dubstep / trap hyrbids, this dude is the man (if not the Godfather) of the sound. The introduction of “Vivacity” sounds like a classic trance record, but the drop is unique and takes us into a whole new world of bass music. Effortlessly switching between growling dubstep synths and loud trap kicks, he takes the best of both worlds and infuses them into nearly 5 minutes of listening pleasure. I’m just aching to hear this live. Lucky for you, this has been released as free download to celebrate the anniversary of Kannibalen Records, so be sure to wish them a happy birthday through Twitter!

[PREMIERE] Acting Damage – Bathsheba [Prime Audio]: Monstrous Dubstep Record

acting damage

I don’t think I’ve heard anything as heavy as this in my life.

Today we have the pleasure of premiering the title track off Acting Damage’s “Bathsheba EP”, exclusively to our readers. The Australian dubstep trio are fairly new to the scene, making a name for themselves in 2014 with an EP on BassFace Audio and a winning remix of JPhelpz’s infamous “Biggup King”. Their latest release on the legendary Prime Audio boasts 6 of the filthiest dubstep tracks around, including collaborations with Definitive, Rekon, Phiso and a remix from Code:Pandorum.

“Bathsheba” begins with a eerie intro, taken straight out of a horror movie. Dark, minimal soundscapes almost have us at the edge of our seats, with the following supernatural sample taking us into the underworld. Acting Damage submerge us into their menacing minds with stark bass stabs and a thumping half-time beat that continually draw us into the depth of blackness. If you like you dubstep hard, this is an EP you don’t want to pass on.

Crizzly Punched In The Face By Oscar Wylde Of CAKED UP [VIDEO]

crizzlytx
What on Earth is going on with DJs these days? First we had Mimosa pouring Vodka over Downlink, and now this! Last Saturday during Foam Wonderland Festival in Texas, CAKED UP got into an altercation with fellow trap producer Crizzly. Both are members of the Warpath management group, and Crizzly was a backstage guest during their set. What started out to be friendly banter soon worsened into something more serious. In the video below, you can see Crizzly going down to pick up his cellphone and then reaching over to the mixer to do something. Oscar Wylde from the duo CAKED UP immediately chases after him, off to the left of the camera, and then returns to the mic and says “Crizzly just got punched in the face!”. Watch the fiasco ensue in the video below.

Riot Ten x Jack Bass – #MaskedMenace : Wicked Festival Trap

artworks-000089805680-7khddk-t500x500

 

#MaskedMenace by Riot Ten and Jack Bass has everything a festival trap track should have. Both of these artists have experience with the genre - Riot Ten recently released an original entitled “Quake” and a remix of “Levels”, by Meek MillJack Bass recently released his collaboration with Lukav, called “Teknoir”, showing his proficiency in the genre. These two artists, when making a combined effort, form a duo to be remembered. #MaskedMenace starts off with an evil, somewhat iniquitous bell pattern, which quickly escalates to a drop that matches the mood of the opening with a huge drop. Combining big room synths with gnarly 808 kicks and a vocal sample referencing the “Masked Menace”, it is a great addition to an already amazing track.

Dillon Francis + Sultan – When We Were Young (Made Monster Remix) : Enormous Electro Banger

artworks-000089772689-ae4ot4-t500x500

 

Made Monster is a production group of 2 producers going under the names of Chris and Ryan. Their music mainly focuses around the main genres of EDM, such as trap, big room, and electro. They’ve already been known to create killer electro drops, as shown in their tracks “BAMA” and “Go Harder”, both fusing big room and electro. With the new release of “When We Were Young” by Dillon Francis and Sultan, the production duo decided to remix it and create another spectacular version of an already stunning track. The vocals fit perfectly with the relaxed pads and other synts, as it progresses to a massive drop that, as Made Monster has shown before, infuses the genres of electro and big room in a way that artists often can’t achieve.

Jennifer Lopez ft. Iggy Azalea – Booty (Prod. by Diplo & Swick): Must Hear Remix

iggy

You may be wondering why the names Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea are appearing on this site when there’s no remixer after them. I’m actually wondering myself.

JLo hires the bootylicious Iggy Azalea for the official remix of her new single, which is of course about “all the girls in the club” shaking their behinds. We’re not really interested in the lyrics, but we can’t blame you if you’re hooked to the infectious production. That’s because they sampled Diplo & Swicks’s twerk anthem”Dat A Freak”, released March 2013 on the “Keep It Gully EP”. The world’s of hip-hop and EDM are becoming ever more interwined, and there’s no stopping the revolution.

Ajapai – Deathblow [Rottun]: Must Hear Dubstep Filth

ajapai

Japan’s emperor of all things bass returns with an explosive new single on Rottun Recordings. He was one of the iconic producers who molded the early filthy, robotic dubstep sound along with Datsik, Downlink, Liquid Stranger and Excision. Since this early fame, he’s not been very active on the release front with only a handful of tunes in the past 6 months. But while the wait is unbearable, he sure makes it worthwhile when he drops a banger like “Deathblow”. Dark cinematic orchestras delve you into the man-enslaved world of the future, taking you around a black city ruled by robots. This is merely a precursor to the madness that is about to ensue. Prepare to take repeated blows to your face as you press play.

The Chainsmokers Bring Bobby Schmurda On Stage During Electric Zoo Set

chainsmokers-shmurda

Even though the curse of day 3 forced Electric Zoo 2014 to close early on Sunday, there are SOME positive experiences that we’d like to share. During their performance, production duo of “#SELFIE” fame (quite randomly) brought rapper Bobby Schmurda onto stage to perform his viral hit “Hot N*gga”. A clash of cultures maybe, but with Bobby recently signing to Epic Records and The Chainsmokers being part of Sony, their label relation is the only reason we can see why they linked up. Or maybe Andrew & Alex just like doing the Schmoney Dance, as you can see the in the Instragram videos below.
