As far as good hard Electro goes there aren’t many new releases coming out that can take us back to the good old days but every now and then a new release appears that successfully brings back memories of the good hard Electro era. And Autopunk & Mak Others have definitely managed to do that with their collaboration “We Own The Night”, out yesterday on Jet Set Trash. Groovy, powerful, bassy and overall sexy, this is the good old sound that most certainly fans of artists like Haezer, Gtronic, etc, must be missing in 2015. Add the great vocals by Mak Others which aren’t just a perfect match for Autopunk‘s sound but also taking both tracks to a whole new level and “We Own The Night” has all those ingredients a good hard Electro release should.
Greetings to all bassheads out there and hope you had a great weekend. Slow start in the week in terms of blogging after what turned out to be a busy weekend but we’re getting back on track and some new music always helps so here comes Dodge & Fuski and 12th Planet who collaborated recently on “Big Riddim Monsta”, out on Disciple Recordings a week ago. And because one riddim monsta is never enough though the release came with a b-side as well, titled “Jump”. As for what you can expect to hear on Dodge & Fuski‘s new single, well the release title is pretty much self-explanatory. So if that sounds like you’re after this fine Tuesday you better check out “Big Riddim Monsta” and stay tuned for more since a remixes EP is already on the way.
Next up comes a name that we’ve always loved on this blog since the very early days due to their dark, heavy, no holds barred Dubstep and even Metalstep. And even though the Atlanta based duo Mantis hasn’t been featured here as often as they once were, we’re definitely happy to hear some new music coming by them with their brand new single “Slangin’ / Warmonger” (feat. Armanni Reign) which was released a few days ago on Uplink Audio. Two new originals and if you expect some Trap or cheesy EDM here you better keep moving on folks because Mantis are going full power and heavy, just the way we like it and would expect by the duo. Here’s “Slangin’ / Warmonger”, so you better check it out for some nice Dubstep.
More new music coming and it’s time to go underground with this remixes EP for I Think I Broke Something‘s “Face Lift”. If you’re familiar with the Finland based live duo then you must probably already be aware of their pretty different, unique and fresh style and sound which borders Indie Dance, Electronica, Punk and good ol’ hard Electro. And whether you like their music or not, which is pretty characteristic no doubt, you have to admit it has to be somewhat hard to remix. The good news is that Father, Laforcah and Hijack Da Bass who were the three artists chosen to remix the tracks from ITIBS‘ latest EP were up to the challenge and they most definitely delivered. A heavy and dark trash Electro/Techno remix of “To Hell” by the London based duo, rude Electro Punk by Italy’s loudest duo and trademark sounding energy filled Electro House by Hijack Da Bass was the outcome. If that sounds like the Electronic music you enjoy then you better check “Face Lift Remixed” out.
Bassnectar is an artist that needs no introductions and even though we haven’t posted about him in quite a long time here we’re happy to have some fresh new music by him to talk about. His name might have been circulating music blogs lately for a few reasons, namely for his “taking the piss on EDM” move, but we will stick strictly to his music and how could we not when he’s just made public five tracks from his upcoming “Into The Sun” LP? The LP is out June 30 and we have to say that the expectations are very high after listening to these new tracks, which are available for download already when you pre-order the LP. From guitar rocking powerblasts to massive sounding bass music and from Trap to downtempo Electronica these new Bassnectar tracks are exactly what every “basshead” could hope for and already set very high standards for his new LP (as if there was any doubt ever) both from a production standpoint as well as creative. What remains to be seen, or to be more precise heard, is the remaning eleven tracks from “Into The Sun” but until then simply enjoy!
