Meet Slips & Slurs, one of the artist behind the viral release on Monstercat, “WiFi Tears”, coproduced by Mihka!. He’s back with “THat Part” by ScHoolboy Q ft. Kanye West. The release shows his versatility as an artist, combining the original track’s dark beat with his aggressive trap flare. Slips & Slurs is currently working on an EP with release date that has yet to be determined, however if this track is any indication of things to come, then we will gladly wait patiently.

LA based Bricks is starting fresh.”Get Down” is his first release, showcasing a unique balance of electronic music elements that are new as well as familiar aesthetics layered. My favorite part of the experience is the light horn melody. Before you know it, the Diplo-style vocal sample takes over and the drop hits.
The style is different, kind of like a chill bass house with trap-like elements, hard to pinpoint exactly, but a unique feeling is delivered.
Rumor has it Bricks has many more tracks under his belt and will be release some soon. Keep your eye out for him as we get deeper in 2016.

DEMUR is looking to stir shit up a bit. His music is one part of a greater picure. Recent Facebook posts show him firing shots at sell out DJs, ghost produced producers, and other annoying aspects of the scene.
“Traumatized (feat. Galvanize)” is basically hard rock and heavy club sounds colliding. Nice to hear someone who is trying something significantly different. This won’t be the last from one of LA’s newest electronic acts.

This Iceland soloist Dark Cat has been making his rise for quite some time. He finally got one of many breaks to come and have come: locking down a spot on the very selective Fox Stevenson label Cloudhead Records.
The 5 track experience of Finite EP has a beautiful color scheme, and beautiful music that fits the mood. You can see why Fox Stevenson picked up on this, it’s this smooth, milky, cloudy sound mixed with awesome genres all in one experience. Top notch.

“Tank Girls” was a standout record for Apashe in 2015. That’s saying a lot for a guy who put out a VIP for his viral song “No Twerk” along with landing licensing deals with Adidas, HBO and more. Kannibalen Records commissioned some remixes for Apashe’s 2015 original, and released them today on the Tank Girls Remix EP. The first is by the Italian artist Razihel, who has been one of Monstercat’s strongest artists. His remix is a light-hearted trap take, whereas 8Er$ brings his bass heavy, hybrid trap style. With the third remix, Son Of Kick brings a dark, drum & bass tune that shows off his hometown of London’s influence on him. Lastly, Zeskullz put together a remix that resembles the style and sound of the original, but brings a more housey vibe. Leave it to Kannibalen to bring top quality remixes to their top quality originals.
