Time to wrap things up for today and so here comes my last post and we’ll be getting really heaby, deep and dark with this one and how if anyone expected anything other than that from Noisia then they were obviously very mistaken. Big remix by a big name and in this case, which isn’t always true when it comes to bigger names, the track definitely sound big enough as well. “Arrakis” is taken from Black Sun Empire‘s recently released “Variations on Black” Remix Album which features 28 remixes altogether with some pretty big weapons of Drum & Bass destruction among the artists. Counterstrike, Zardonic, Audio, Neonlight and many more can be heard remixing some Black Sun Empire tracks on this Remix Album and just like this remix by Noisia is, most of them are pretty damn great too. So, check this one, make damn sure to check out the full release as well and have a great evening!
I have another full EP coming up next, only this time it’s a freebie since no Metalectro blogging session can be 100% complete without 1 freebie at least, so today i have a pretty big one for you. A free EP by Overwerk featuring 4 original tracks. All 4 classic Overwerk super well produced Electro House, combinning nice melodic parts with heavy basslines, big buildups and some very nice synth-work, as usual. In a few words nothing less than what you would expect by the Canadian Overwerk. Definitely not the hardest Electro you have or are going to hear but nevertheless 4 very well constructed and good sounding tracks. So, hit play, check them out and go grab them if you want to add them in your mp3 collection.
Keeping the new releases coming as there have been a few of those out recently and Drop Goblin‘s new EP is exactly that. The USA producer is more known for his dark guitar fueled Dubstep and his “Whiskey Biscuit” EP, out on Jet Set Trash 1 week ago, has definitely kept the nice heavy guitar sound we love here flowing nicely through the original but this time Dubstep’s Goblin has delivered a cheerful and feelgood original track rather than a dark one. Cartoon-ish vocals, country-folk music elements and nice catchy melodies replace Drop Goblin‘s dark vibes but ”Whiskey Biscuit” is still heavy nevertheless. 2 remixes as well on this one, a super-energised Drum & Bass remix by The Mechanist plus a hard Electro-step one by Knooper. Overall, a nice release that goes from 0-100 in a few seconds so if you haven’t checked it out yet, hit play below.
Sticking to the bass heavy pumping electro and another new release, by a name that has not only been around for a while but also is proving once again that he is totally incapable of disappointing with his tracks. South Africa’s Haezer is back with a new EP titled “Gold Plated Frequencies”, out on Tasty Records and he shows why he has been called the king of raw thrashing Electro bass so many times throughout his carreer. ”Gold Plated Frequencies” comes with 5 originals and is exactly what is expected by Haezer. A perfectly balanced Electro EP that combines power and punchy basslines with huge buildups and even bigger drops. The classic older Haezer sound has been given a new refreshing touch as well but that’s nothing to worry about as “Gold Plated Frequencies” is Haezer 100%, is mighty and is a release all bass addicts should have already checked out.
Hell-o all! Monday again and time to get busy here on Metalectro with some nasty sounds, something that admittedly i haven’t been able do much lately due to other commitments. So a big thank you to lady Hellectro for keeping things running these last couple of weeks and delivering the goods. I am back on duty today though and hope to make up for any lost time with some extra bass so lets get started with Skitsnygg‘s new EP “Darkness”, out a couple of weeks ago on Sex Cult featuring the dark, heavy original plus remixes by Our Time, Tim Tonik, Laforcah and the contest winners The Unique Yagark and Boilers. A nice hard sounding Electro release overall so in case you haven’t checked it out yet, here’s the full EP!
Last but not least i´ll close the day with some fresh blood and a nice, three track long EP of which two tracks are freebies. I haven´t picked any specific “remix of the day” this evening, but the two remixes that are included in this EP make up for it easily i guess as they both turned out very good. Back to our latest member in the Metalectro family though and an infernal hell-o and warm, if not even hot welcome to Alex Coster from Cholet in France who is responsible for this pretty damn nice free EP named “Feeling“, featuring the same-titled and smoothly melodic original as well as remixes by Akkurat Eleven and Autopunk! Cool stuff and a nice package to close the day with, so check it out, grab all you can get your hands on and have great evening!!!
Here comes yet another newly released track, not as fresh as a daisy as it is out since the 18th of November already, nevertheless it hasn´t been blogged here yet and i´ll gladly do so now as this track is just amazing imo! To call a spade a spade, this is the track “Serpent Of Old” by Seven Lions feat. Ciscandra Nosthalgia, a one track release out on Owsla and a great composition overall. Everyone of you who´s familiar with Seven Lions knows about their high quality productions i guess, playful and very deep tracks with much love for details and by combining these attributes with the slight wicked and desperate sounding vocals by Ciscandra Nostalghia a damn awesome track has been created for sure. A dark beauty with immense power is waiting to be heard, don´t hesitate but play it loud!!!
Next i have another preview of one of the tracks that is going to be featured on You Killing Me´s upcoming EP named “Rave & Love”! “I Kill You” is its name, one of altogether four originals (if not mistaken) that are going to be released the 17th of December on Freakz Me Out and sound-wise my favourite so far! Something that really pisses me off though are the nasty comments on Soundcloud, it´s okay not to like every track and i agree that there are some obvious changes on the familiar You Killing Me sound, but when it comes to “I Kill You” (also “Raja” & “Rave & Love” imo) the changes are definitely refreshing and not calculated concerning any commercial interests imo, rather a development as it´s also boring to sound predictable and always the same. The sound is fat, the tracks are distinct and there are way better names out there to point a finger at if asking me, but i bet the same people judging publicly there on You Killing Me can´t toady enough when it comes to other “big” names at all anyway.. Amen & enjoy the preview!!!
I´ll continue as hefty, but switch genre a bit and go on with some proper electro trash hereby! It´s the latest EP by The Unique Yagark named “The Metro” that just got released this Monday on Raversar, featuring three originals as well as three remixes by Phantom Noise, Ravolution and GOR FLSH, all been done on the same and name-giving track though. The latter are also available as full tracks btw if you check the Soundcloud accounts of each remixer, sadly this doesn´t apply to the originals yet, nevertheless i guess the previews give you already a good impression how this EP sounds – dark, brutal and trashy and i´m quite sure you´ll like it – just check all the tracks below!!!
Hell-o you all, i hope you´re fine and survived our silent days well! No more silence as from now though, and to set you in the best possible mood for the things to be posted today i´ll start with a proper banger by Excision & Space Laces and one of the most entertaining clips i´ve seen in a while! Here comes “Destriod 11. Get Stupid“, another massive tune and the latest release under the name Destroid (which are the united forces of Excision, Downlink and KJ Sawka combined with different collaborateurs) and a clip that does more then justice to the track´s title, being nothing less than awesome and self-inflicted accident footage, that almost makes you feel the pain yourself while watching. Now it´s time for you to get stupid too, so check this adorably kicking dubstep tune out, but take care!!!
