Now, it’s not Summer quite yet, but with festival season and Coachella here, EDM fans are living it up as though Summer has started. With so much music coming out, and set to release, it’s hard to pick and choose what tracks really stand out. Unless you are Dabin and Koven who delivered what could be one of the top tracks we here throughout the next several months from DJs all over the world. “Revenant” is their masterpiece that juxtaposes memorable melodies with some headbanging bass between drops. There’s a lot of insane records that are put out by Kannibalen Records and from Dabin in particular, but this is up there as one of the special ones. The match-up between Dabin and Koven was a perfect pairing, and I hope to see them do something again in the future. For now, stream or buy “Revenant.”

If you haven’t become familiar with Xan Griffin stop what you’re doing and hit play. After turning heads at the Monstercat offices, Xan Griffin follows up with another heavy single orchestrating his finesse with the dubstep sound. I suggest long drives for this one – overall, one of the cleanest produced tracks by this emerging talent.

Brig has been featured on FNT many times, but no release matches the depth that Brig puts out on this one. The Russian bass artist added some of the most emotional elements to his music ever – and it translated brilliantly.
When that guitar parts hit, you get stuck in this happy trance where you’re loving what you are hearing but have no idea what’s coming next. Each passing beat bring about some large or small, but smooth change.
Brig is on fire going into 2015, check out more about him here.

Dabin continues his hot streak with another Kannibalen Release, this time an EP entitled Hold / She Was. This three track project is fit with two originals, including a feature with long time collaborator Daniela Andrade. Their work on “Hold” is a magical venture into an anthemic future style. Coming second is a harder original that is stacked with more bass. “She Was” still has that soft tone that Dabin has been continuously shaping over the year. If two originals weren’t enough for you, Stolensnares dished out a future bass remix of “Hold” that adds a nice concluding touch to the EP. Dabin will be embarking on a huge tour in 2016 with label mates Black Tiger Sex Machine and Apashe that will take them all over North America. Dates and information can be found here. If they go anywhere near you, make sure you make it! These three together are an experience like none other.

Three days ago Brig dropped a masterpiece. Contrition is a well crafted piece through and through, with an intoxicating melody and rhythmic bass that goes so well with the song. From the incredible intro with chorus like vocals and sweeping sound provided by the synthesizers it sets the song up for greatness. The build ups are good and then the first bass drop will grab your attention with its complexity, although not too complex, and creativeness.
Brig may be an underground artist now but with “Contrition” he is clearly seeking to change that. The level of skill he provides along with unique sound gives a sense of his thoughtfulness and devotion to quality music.

Deep House, Dubstep, Future Trap, House | Dabin’s “Touch” Gets Three Sexy Makeovers For Kannibalen Records

As if Dabin’s original single “Touch” with Daniela Andrade wasn’t beautiful enough, Kannibalen Records enlists three remixes for the magnificent musical specimen. As you can expect from the Kannibalen crew, they diversify the EP with sounds ranging from club-friendly side, to the headphones and chill side. Kicks N Licks bring the bass with their dubby interpretation that plays towards a festival friendly style. Ghosts, who already has a strong catalog of quality remixes, adds another with one of the most sensational house tracks that has graced the deeper side of the genre. Lastly, Imagined Herbal Flows brings a downtempo future remix that rounds out the EP quite nicely. Dabin and company only brought three tracks to the table, but they weren’t messing around with their choices. Suffice to say, the Touch Remixes EP is definitely worth the purchase price!
