Mt. Eden’s latest installment embodies a therapeutic vibe that is very koi to my ears. It’s always a pleasure to hear new things from this New Zealand duo. Their new EP ”Sierra Leone” is set to drop later this year.

Koven, formerly known as Coven, have just released their newest EP, which consists of one of the greatest releases of the year by far. After my first listen to the release I knew that this EP needed to be more than just a post about the release. So with a little bit of help we were able to ask the duo some questions about music and how it all started, which you can find by reading on below. Besides the two originals on the EP from Koven are two remixes; one from DC Breaks and the other from Roughmath, which are both amazing in their own manner. The title track, More Than You, is the perfect blend of emotion and heaviness into one power packed song. It isn’t an easy task to create such an emotional piece by an artist and also be able to incorporate their flavor of grime as well, but this duo showed us exactly how it needs to be done. Their second track No Blocks seems to be more along the lines of the neuro/glitchy style of dubstep that artist such as Koan Sound, or Reso create so often. Either way this EP contains some great tracks from all sides of the spectrum and is a must have. Don’t forget to click ‘Read On’ to check out our interview with Koven, and also a big thank you to Viper Recordings for helping make that happen.

Literally just posted new Oscillator Z yesterday and now he releases another sick tune, only this time he went with Drum & Bass. I am really addicted to the liquid style he has flowing through this. The drop is electrifying, as if charging your mind for a great adventure ahead. The vocals just bring it all together for me, without them this track would feel incomplete. All around cool Drum & Bass track, round of applause for Oscillator Z.

2013 is already turning out to be an awesome year for electronic music in my opinion. Reso has an awesome line up of remixing artists for his upcoming remix EP of his recent EP release “Tangram.” The remix EP features KOAN Sound, Om Unit, Billain, and Doshy. KOAN Sound’s remix is a lot more abstract than I am used to hearing from them. Their remix of “Axion” is a very deep, bassy Drum & Bass track that transitions into a kicked up Midtempo jam. Om Unit has my favorite remix of the whole EP. The way they remixed “Simple Pleasures” creates the emotion that the title is so deserving of. The track is very chill and still with the same deep bass that carries out through all the remixes. Billain made a dirty Neuro-Dubstep remix of “Half Life,” making my ears convulse in the craziest ways. The last remix from Doshy is the only one of the EP that does not have its own clip. Doshy’s remix of “Coronium” is what I would call an abstract take on Trap. Oddly enough the idea works, and Doshy’s remix provides a cool-temperatured finish to the EP. The remix EP is set to release March 11th.

Feels like it has been too long since some fine liquid Drum & Bass got posted. The original of this song is actually just as good as this remix. Veela has such a beautiful voice. Having heard a lot of other tracks she has done vocals for, I have noticed that she is able to voice many different singing styles to match the instrumental she is covering. Elliot Berger picked a great track with a great vocalist to remix.

Damn Skrillex and his OWSLA Nest. To top it off, Phuture Doom is probably the alter-ego of a member of OWSLA seeing as he only has 300 likes on Facebook, literally had created the page on the 1st of this month. Frustration, confusion, and this remix still owns. It is an interesting take on Drumstep, not as speedy as some would imagine but nonetheless one of the sickest tunes of the month. One day we will figure out who Phuture Doom is but until then I hope to enjoy every release from he/she/them. The remix will be available January 22nd of you can grab it on The Nest now.
