the-prodigy-2015Wrapping things up with something you have seen and heard about already most likely, since it’s no big secret The Prodigy are back with a new album (out March 30), which to be fair we certainly hope it meets our expectations and lives up to its promotion campaign. Either way, the first signs and sounds we’ve heard from “The Day Is My Enemy” and of course the video of “Nasty” are definitely encouraging to say the least. Good old heavy and wild Electronic music with its fair share of rock’n’roll attitude and if that doesn’t sound like something you dig then you’re probably reading the wrong blog. As for “Nasty”, both the original mix and Spor remix (aka Feed Me) are already doing a great work whetting our appetite. As for the video of “Nasty”, let’s just say it takes things from “whetting our appetite” to making us rabid with it’s nice dark and very stylish animation. Check it out and of course mark the 30th of March on your calendars!

One day left before the weekend and so it’s time to get a bit funky (or a lot actually) and set the mood right for the weekend partying and festivities and we have the perfect track for that too. A newly published collaboration original between The Noisy Freaks and J.A.C.K which was supposed to be released on The Noisy Freaks Straight Life” album but never made it on the release. Well, lucky for us since here’s “We Are The Ones” reworked and available as a free download and for all fans of the French Electro sound and scene this one is a must as it doesn’t get much better than this. And it’s safe to say these guys are definitely “the ones” who got the grooves for a great start in the weekend, now let’s see who’s got the moves!

Hell-o all and here we are ready to welcome the weekend that’s just around the corner, so let’s get big today and set the mood right right from the start, with Beef Theatre’s new EP “Like This”, out on Jet Set Trash a few days ago. 3 new original tracks from the German duo, one of them available as a free download too, who deliver some very high quality Electro House with their new EP. A bit too “housy” and more commercial at points, especially comparing to some of the duo’s past work but having said that “Like This” EP is also some of Beef Theatre‘s best work to date. Highlight of the EP, the main and opening track “Like This”, which is definitely some top class Electro House. Not only it takes the duo’s production standards to the next level but also keeps a perfect balance between bouncy, club friendly Electro House with an Acid touch and the harder side of Beef Theatre. A floorfiller by all means and a track/release you should totally check out, whether you like your Electro hard or not.

Changing the mood and style with our second post of the day, since we are leaving the hard and dark Electro behind for some pretty nice Glitch Hop and Drum & Bass by Flybug and his latest single titled “Party Animal”. Released on Jet Set Trash a couple of days before the end of 2014 (December 29), “Party Animal” features once more the London (UK) based hip-hop trio Vice Versa on vocals and a remix by RoughMath, who transformed the Glitch Hop original mix into some super sick Drumstep. Nice production and lots of bass on both the original and remix and overall a pretty nice release which was definitely nice to see climbing to the Top 10 Beatport releases earlier this month. Check out “Party Animal” if you haven’t yet!

Another young artist who has been impressive so far with anything he has produced and especially his Dubstep tracks, is Boston (USA) based Imagin8 who last month had his new single “Midnight” released on Jet Set Trash. After a single on Most Addictive MusicImagin8 is back on the London bass heavyweight label with 2 new originals, one being a massive Dubstep and one a melodic and very catchy vocal Drumstep track. And if you enjoyed Imagin8‘s previous works and more specifically his dark and heavy Dubstep tracks (Pure Justice, Restless Slumber remix or Battle On The Hill) then you’re in for a special treat with “Midnight Shenanigans”, the opening track from “Midnight”, which is definitely both Imagin8‘s best original up to date and one of our favorite recent Dubstep tracks. Huge sound design and massive “growls”, dark atmosphere and big bad drops is what you can expect in this one, followed by some catchy and more EDM-esque vocal Drumstep in “When You Come Home”, which serves as the release’s b-side track. Two very good tracks with high production standards that you should check out by all means so hit play in the player below and enjoy.

And thy name is Oxylice, who just had his comeback EP “Crossroads” released on Simplify Recordings just over a week ago. Including 3 original tracks “Crossroads” EP is a very nice mix of Glitch Hop, ElectroHouse (with the classic Oxylice complextro parts) and Dubstep with nice production and overall flow. Definitely a nice comeback release by the youngster from Belgium which makes us hope he’s back for good and is already cooking up some more fresh music. Check out “Crossroads” EP!

Going on with some fresh blood and the debut feature of UK based artist Inque here with his debut EP, titled “Witching Hour”. Out on London based Sons Of Noise Records almost a month ago, “Withcing Hour” EP comes with 4 original track which move between Dubstep, Electro, Drum & Bass, Glitch Hop and pretty much each and every electronic bass music sub-genre, something that has works pretty nice as Inque has successfully managed to maintain a dark and heavy atmosphere throughout the EP. Definitely a release that has left us with a very positive buzz in our ears and places Inque on our radar for good as one of those new and “to be watched closely” up and comers. Check his debut EP and stay tuned for more by him.
