Varien is a big name in dance music, he has entered a group of artists that are long standing, house-hold (in dance music house-holds) names that 2010’s dance music fans and new fans easily recognize. Yet, this week – and what is looking to be the rest of the year – Varien made his releases private and is starting fresh. Dropping only one track so far.
His latest is “ghost shell” a single that showcases a more techno-heavy side to what Varien fans are used to. The single still fits in the realm of something Varien puts out, but is certainly a highly experimental release for the solo artist. Stoked to see what 2017 will hold for him.

Well this is quite the banger. “Release” brings together emcee Cult Shotta and producer Spenda C for an upbeat jam that will surely have you grooving. The two newcomers are not to be slept on, and this song is proof of just that. I’ve had this song on repeat for atleast a week now and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! Wouldn’t be surprised if i heard this spun out a ton at SXSW. Listen and enjoy above.

VIRO is a new act that is releasing their first song, an exciting experience to say the least, especially when the sound holds this much quality. Not too much is known about VIRO yet, but given what can experienced here, via “Esthra,” we can’t wait to hear what he puts out next.
VIRO fits somewhere in between classic house, future bass, and soul. His sound is multi-dimensional and can be appreciated passively or in a concert setting. “Esthra” was released on Amasu, which also hosts some really tight music, whatever goals the collective and artist focused on for this one should be repeated, because “Esthra” is on point.

It’s been a while since Magna has released some new music, but the day has finally come, the rising, forward-thinking bass artists who has 550K+ plays to his name has released “Spectator.” A single that is certainly dark, but completely showcases the Magna style we have come to love.
Magna isn’t the only focus of this release, the label the solo artist released on is Superdead, a somewhat mysterious label that aims be the counter-culture within the dance music scene. Superdead doesn’t care about plays, prestige, and notoriety, their focus is releasing music that is good no matter the genre or style.
Superdead is off to a good start seeing as they’ve dropped Magna, interested to see what happens next with them.

Buffalo New York emcees Johnny Hustle and Fly Bundles release the video for “Trap Door”, produced by the legendary Alchemist. “Trap Door” is a gritty street tale, with witty wordplay and a smooth flow. Definitely keep these dudes on your radar as they’re releasing two projects this year, Views From The Sick and Daily Edition.
