Electronic, Moombahton | The M Machine – Additional Faces

Posted by on December 30, 2013

Madness – pure madness. I first heard this little piece of magic in The M Machine’s mix for OWSLA After Dark (My favourite mix of the year). It’s such a creative musical venture that it makes my head spin. Suspense is built well with an entertaining intro and build that introduces the beat. The power of the beat at 1:45 is Godzilla-sized. With a moombahish pattern and encompassing bass, it really takes me over. Then, out of no where, the song picks up into a wicked drum and bass shuffle.

The whole song is amazing in many ways, but as a friend pointed out to me, the most impressive illusion created here is that of depth. The sounds compliment each other perfectly, but it feels as though they do so from a distance. And width – I’m not sure that I’ve ever heard sound so wide. Huge, low bass and long, wide sounds add to the illusion. Without adding an overwhelming amount of sounds, these legendary artists have created a sound that is extremely full. This song is way entertaining and displays some next level engineering. Bravo guys, this is brilliant stuff.

Moombahton | GTA – Yolohton

Posted by on September 18, 2013


This track is stupid, it’s so good. GTA releases “Yolohton” under Calvin Harris’ label Fly Eyes Record, and it’s a party! This is GTA’s first original track since they dropped “Boy Oh Boy” featuring Diplo, along with their remix of Calvin Harris’ latest single “Thinking About You” a few  months back. “Yolohton” reminds me of Bauer’s “Harlem Shake” with an electro twist. Expect to hear this track all over, I can only imagine the scene going nuts, once this track is dropped at festivals…

Moombahton | Rihanna ft Jay Z – Talk That Talk (Dotcom Remix)

Posted by on June 11, 2013

After breaking 180,000 plays on his breakout Scream & Shout remix, Dotcom has created more than just a buzz in the dubstep community. We’ve been keeping our eyes peeled on his twitter account & it looks like you can expect some big collabs from Dotcom in the near future. His latest release is a wildcard moombah remix of Rihanna’s “Talk That Talk” and as usual it’s got the perfect amount of the original melodies blended with Dotcom’s filthy drops & edits. Do yourself a favor and download this one.

Bass, Dubstep, Moombahton | Pegboard Nerds & Tristam – Razor Sharp

Posted by on May 1, 2013


When looking for amazing melodies and production, look no further than Pegboard Nerds. Having teamed up with the rising star Tristam and the guys over at Monstercat to release this amazing Mid-tempo track, there is no stoping them. Their tracks are so unique and well produced its hard not to be addicted to their style and aggressiveness. Approaching almost the halfway point in the year, if I were to say there is one artist to look out for in 2013 it is undoubtedly the Pegboard Nerds. Nothing but quality comes from this duo and it is all inspiring work.

Moombahton, Techno | Alesia – Otho & Andrea // Tune In Crew – Tous dehors

Posted by on April 30, 2013


I’m not sure why I’m lumping these tracks together. They’re really only similar in that that they are cool, free, and happen to have been written by French producers. But given that we’re now only a few weeks away from Random Access Memories, it seems sort of appropriate to cast a spotlight on some of France’s brightest up-and-comers. So, without further adieu…

First up, two new tracks from Alesia, whom you may recall recently made waves with the
now-omnipresent “Bird Machine.” Be advised: “Andrea” and “Otho” are not trap — both are dark, industrial techno carefully calibrated to get inside your head. Fellow Parisian Gesaffelstein would undoubtedly approve. If this is your poison, hop on the free DLs…and if not, do me a favor and give it a chance. Relative newcomers though they may be, Alesia are definitely a duo to keep your eyes on.

Next (and finally) we have a really interesting track that’s currently putting a gigantic smile on my face. I’m not sure what it is about “Tous dehors” — the languorous moombah bassline, the steel drum (and all the dancehall flavor it imparts), the French samples…but something about this gels fantastically when it probably shouldn’t. Super chouette!
