Boulder's prehistoric patrolmen are back and better than ever. Sax man Clark Smith has thrown himself back into his work with DYNOHUNTER after time off with other projects. The livetronica trio, rounded out by Fred Reisen on bass and drummer Justin Ehmer, are firing off a stunning new sound with this exclusive premiere. "Gotta Do Wit It" is a funky nu-disco number with plenty of power. A rumbling bassline accompanies Smith's bright flourishes on the horn. Breaking new ground with this brilliant beauty, the fearsome fullness of this three-piece is thicker and even more intense than it was when we last heard from them. This fresh dancefloor darling is all yours for the cost of a click of the mouse, and we're absolutely thrilled to bring it to you.
Finding out Singularity can produce trap--like seriously stellar trap--is like Leonardo DaVinci being like "Oh you like the Mona Lisa? You know I invented the life preserver, right?" It's like finding out Leonardo DiCaprio could play a lovable Irish scamp who stows away on a doomed ship, and then finding out he could play a lovable Irish scamp who burned the city of New York down and stabbed people and stuff. It would be like if Michael Jordan was actually decent at baseball. Singularity isn't just "good" at trap, he crushed it. Known for gorgeous lovestep builds and powerfully emotive climaxes, dude just gets dirty on "Ness." That smooth, swaggering intro drops right off the damn table. And you can catch it Monday (5/13) when it's out as part of the Horizon EP on Play Me Records.
We're addicted! Plain and simple, we can't get enough SirensCeol. Stephen Burke is teaching us things about ourselves we never knew. First of all, we're suckers for a positive message. That much is for certain. There is nothing like a thoughtful, introspective, and inspirational song with lyrics that don't just sit there, but crawl up inside you. What we did know, however, is that SirensCeol knows his way around a drop. Shimmering waves of synth magic wash over your speakers like the ocean crashing against the rocks in the Bay where Burke calls home. This effervescent quality is so refreshing and crisp, we may as well be describing Sierra Mist. It's poignant and fun, and he and Brenton Mattheus are the dynamic duo we've been waiting for.
For many dubstep acts, it's all about the heavy and nasty. Animatronic dinosaurs shooting laser-guided missiles at fluffy Pekinese, and all that jazz. But for Britain's Culture Code, the emphasis is on euphoria. Uplifting melodies are buffeted by great wooshing gusts of buoyant bass. Tantalizing synths delicately flutter above powerful percussive sections. No song exemplifies this quite like the duo's recent remix of Colorado's OneRepublic. The exuberant lyrics and poignant message are underscored by a gated drop with plenty of support. Giving chase to titans of the music industry. Culture Code is making a dash up the charts and into our hearts. Lucky for you, the boys are giving this one away for free for helping them reach 40,000 Likes on Facebook. Enjoy!
Jay Murphy is taking the funk into the future. Take one part Netsky badassery and mix it with the potent rhymes of Atlanta-based hip-hop act Collective Efforts, and you've got the latest installment of the Electric Forest Fresh Beatz Series courtesy of Up Until Now. Murphy strips away the drum 'n' bass from Netsky's original, leaving only the pure bass flex. Slipping the verses of CE and Grip Plyaz into the mix, the result is a funky tune with enough bounce to get the room hopping. And that's just what he's planning on unleashing this Friday with Bassnectar in Atlanta at the famed Tabernacle--a prelude to a big summer.
Up Until Now will be joining Pretty Lights, Empire of the Sun, Knife Party, Lotus, Benny Benassi, Beats Antique, Madeon, Tommy Trash, EOTO, Baauer, and so many more seminal acts and rising stars from the electronic, jam, rock, and Americana worlds at Electric Forest, June 27-30 in beautiful Rothbury, MI.
