Well, top of the morning to all you champions of the sun out there on this fine Wednesday. My late night prowling led me to discover the sexy sounds of the revered King Henry and I’d be delighted to share my findings with you. This LA-based producer takes on current trends in music and turns them completely inside out in this awesome, enriching and totally satisfying manner. It’s a little trillwave mixed with trap and bouncin’ beats, one song he even identifies as “comic trap.” It’s the kind of stuff you can put on at parties to intrigue//impress all your friends, or just chill out and listen to in the comfort of your own bed. It’s versatile, it’s groovy, and it’s rad. I pulled a couple songs that might lure you in, Dayman in particular being my favorite. If you think it’s good, just wait till the final drop at the end of the song and then you’ll realize this King Henry isn’t jousting — er, joking around.
Check out King Henry on Soundcloud and social media for more, and you can download his first album at a name-your-price cost from Bandcamp.

I love this song, ever since it came out a few months ago it has been listened to almost every day and it is not even close to getting old for me. Hopscotch released the official music video today and knowing the track as I do, I had high expectations. Those expectations were met then passed, never ceasing to make you feel the incredible emotion that this song is. The video itself is hot, steamy black and white with a little bit of witchcraft. If you haven’t downloaded this song yet, I highly recommend it.

Damn, Masq has been releasing straight fire. After his incredible bootleg of Amon Tobin’s “Lost and Found”, I was extremely excited when I saw this was a bootleg of the legendary, Spor (aka Feed Me). I thought maybe this would have been more Neuro-hop considering his last few releases but I am happy to see he kept a Spor classic in good old Drum & Bass. Masq is just getting started, don’t miss out on his explosion into the music world.

Arguably the hottest producers right now, their singles “Lift Off” and “The Code“ are still heavily in circulation, while their “This Is What It Feels Like“ remix is the potent remix of choice for Armin van Buuren and many others. Not diverging from their bombastic sound, W&W unleash another massive track that follows much of the same structure and winning formula as “The Code”, providing an unrelenting bass line and thunderous synths.
One can criticize them for sticking to their sound too much or going with a sound that is becoming more and more common, but you have to remember that they helped bring this style to the mainstream and others followed them. Coming up, the gigantic Dutch duo have their collab with Hardwell, which was just recently finished, as well a few IDs on the way.

Oh Coyote Kisses, how I have missed your music so. It has been too long since we have had some new music from you guys and this EP is exactly what we needed. The Thundercolor EP is the longest release to date from US producers Bryce Bresnan and Joe Sussingham better known as Coyote Kisses. Trained musicians, the two of them showcase their compositional ability and the ability to create musically interesting sounding songs. The 4 track EP encompasses much of the wide variety of sounds and styles that they have embraced already in their young and promising careers, while expanding their sound even further.
While many EPs sound like 4 random songs thrown together, this one has the sound of a mini-16 minute album, giving you a small snippet of the overall creative process at work with the two of them. The EP starts slow with the soothing “Diving At Night“, mixing a slow piano melody with a pitched vocal and subtle guitar chords. “Stay With You” is most like the unique sound and style they have developed with a blend of bouncy, differentiating bass lines, bright synths, while “This Is How You Know” brings in some rock infused funk with an infectious synth melody. “Changing Of The Guard“, which can be downloaded for free here, finishes out the EP, capping off the short, but diverse journey Coyote Kisses take you on, showing off their musicianship with a prominent guitar and subtle melodic synths underneath.
A project one year in the making, Coyote Kisses give us spellbinding productions that make it entirely worth the wait. Their quality over quantity sound makes it easy to revisit each individual track plenty and with this EP, you will be back again in no time.

Ever since the surfacing of their first tune, Miskatonik, Carvar and Clock have been the talk of the town. Gaining all kinds of support from all of the big names, these guys went from nothing to something in a matter of weeks. To be honest I had never seen anything like it before, but after releasing their single for free it was signed to Firepower Records soon after. With that came some of the most unique and amazing remixes of the tune as well. We have seen some showings from Joe Ford showcasing what he is capable of, but this remix brings out the meaner side in him. When I first heard the preview to this remix my jaw dropped, and still does everyone time I do. The second drop gives me goosebumps like no other. MUST DIE! has been cranking tunes out left and right like it’s nobodies business the past few months. He is an endless library of tunes and this remix just proved that he is going to be creating some of the most unique music in 2013. I haven’t heard many succesful metal/dubstep fusion remixes of any tunes, but this one is easily the best. Also on this EP is another single from the duo called SYGYZY (good luck trying to pronounce this one). I wasn’t to amazed with this track, because it reminded me too much of Miskatonik, but nevertheless it’s still a good tune.

Speaking of Neuro-hop, Drum & Bass producer owned face with this insane Neuro-hop clip. The intro is very different from what we have been hearing from other tracks in this sub-genre, best part is, so is the drop. My mind was blown instantly at the drop, it is one of the dirtiest things I have ever heard. You can sure I will be waiting day by day for this original to release.
