Genre hybrids are nothing new in dance music, but new hybrids certainly are. Most aren’t committed enough to take on a such a creative task, but the result Mory has tapped into showcases the benefits of doing so. “MenloBucks” the latest single from Mory, is a hyper-detailed, experimental single fusing the genres of glitch-hop and future bass, showcasing a new style and feeling that is refreshing, to say the least.
Mory’s “MenloBucks” was released on Neocore Records, a label just getting their start, yet displaying a solid selection on the A&R front, thus far. Mory and Neocore Records are not only rising together, but showing strong promise.

Los Angeles Producer Jack Squire has been on a roll lately with multiple releases over the past months. But today he is back with another gut-wrenching record. The new track featuring another Los Angeles producer Katnip features amazing melodies arranged to create a dark and playful atmosphere while the build up becomes more and more sinister, then when the drop hits, it hits you right in the chest. From previously supported tracks by Far Too Loud, James Egbert and Apek he is well on his way to becoming a bass music figure. “Imma” features everyone’s favorite dubstep elements from fast-paced arps to downright dirty growls. The drums hit hard and the consistency of the track is like none other.
With each release, he becomes better and better, and thanks to his education at the world-renowned Icon Collective School, he has the proper production and arrangement skills needed to take it to the next level. “Imma” is available to stream on Spotify, Soundcloud and a few others. If you’re a fan of Getter, Phaseone, or Spock then you’ll love Jack Squire’s new track “Imma.”

Based in Garden Grove, you may have seen LO-DEF around on the internet via his official Dim Mak remix of “Devil’s Lettuce” by Bro Safari and ETC!ETC!. He’s now returned with his first single of the year, an original called “It’s On.” The release has all the makings that listeners got a taste of in the Dim Mak remix, but with a fresh core elements newly introduced.
The core of “It’s On” is certainly it’s hard, trap and bass feel. Pulsating, rhythmic percussion layer on top of dark, almost-spooky vibes found within this track that would undoubtably go off in the club. Gaining traction and getting noticed as an artist is, in part, about locking down credible achievements – Lo-Def is skipping ahead of his colleagues via strong productions, partnering with notable labels, and on-point branding.

Primsatic, based out of Maryland, has dropped Marathon EP packed full of empowering melodic bass tracks. John Schmulowitz whose stage name is Prismatic, is well loved by bassheads around the world. The first track on this EP is “Marathon,” which starts the experience off strong, but my favorite track is the third single “Empathy.” Love the euphoric intro and the smooth transition into the rest of the song. The 4th track “Droid,” which taps on a sweet spot, especially the second half where the composition of the beats are outstanding and refreshing.
If you dig a little deeper, you will find other gems (uplifting, euphoric dubstep tracks) which are similar in feel, but each have unique drops that take you there. Some particular songs are completely out of this world and will make you fall in love with dubstep all over again. If you aren’t satisfied with what you find, check him out at Flower of Life festival May 18-21, 2017.

He hits you with two drops, the first being an explosive sequence layered with feel-good melodies. Crankdat throws his listeners a curveball though on the latter half with a minimal trap drop that likely goes off in the festival scene.

Everyone has to climb the ranks of a certain stature at some point. All producers do it as they climb, or sometimes sprint, to super stardom. Orlando-based group Faethoms have released their latest bass fueled original “Hypernautics” on the label AIA, a household name for dance music fans.
“Hypernautics” does not just have strong arrangement, but ear-catching mixing/mastering, a balance of melody and bass, and an overall good production. Doesn’t matter who you are, that drop is surprising and fitting. Some artist try to go minimal in the drop and it flat-out does not work, this is the opposite of the case with “Hypernautics”. The group have released a Circus Records official remix and now an AIA original, they are on the right path to say the least.
