He’s back. After a hiatus from the interwebs Flume returns with a massive (can’t be understated) reintroduction to the scene he curated. This track is full of teasing beaks, unexpected futuristic bass line drops, and a hazy outro – it literally dives in from every direction. Flume enthusiasts won’t be disappointed by this, rather they’ll be taken down a nostalgic path to original productions by the tastemaker. Scope out http://www.flumemusic.com/ to see if he’s coming to a town near you this summer – he’s not one to be missed.

‘Smooth Criminal’ performance, and fresh off his latest tour with Mat Zo, Haywyre has gifted us with another spectacular look into what the Haywyre experience is like as he performs ‘Insight’ in a dark and ominous room as a single light shines down on him and his keyboard. The galvanizing performance is sure to have ticket-holders eager to have him touch down in their city and perform the new track alongside his already incredible catalog of music. Haywyre continues his mission to provide his listeners with music that not only presents variety and originality, but also carries the essence of a narrative. As one of Monstercat’s most promising young talents, Haywyre is bound to impress the world with his instrumental dexterity and production capabilities.

Whose ready for some futuristic funk because Robin Hagglund just got his Daft Punk on with his original, “Flashback.” He’s been quite busy preparing some big progressive releases on Blue Soho Recordings, and even had the privilege of being featured on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Radio (episode 89) earlier this year. His tracks are hitting thousands of plays regularly and every release puts you on the edge – you never know what to expect with this guy. Grab some headphones, lay back, and let this take you away.

This EP is too cool to pass up. CloZee is always kilin’ it with glitch madness, and “Falcon” is nothing short of awesome. This track has a bit more of a dub feel to it than I’m used to from CloZee, but it came out awesome. The saucy melody is unbeatable, and the progression from slower dub into a glitch breakdown is clearly a display of CloZee’s skills. This EP also includes a bonus trap remix from Dropout Marsh that is also top notch work. Dropout Marsh’s version of “Falcon” is nostalgic and full of melancholy vibes. This EP is free to grab right off the player, so show your support and download!

I can’t remember if I’ve ever posted a glitch track, but what better day than my birthday to try something new? I couldn’t be happier I found it today since, as some of you know, Chicago is dangerously cold right now and we could use a distraction. “Gotta Get Some Sleep” by CloZee is fun, bouncy, and has a great mood to it. The horns and bass are funky and fresh. I’ve been following CloZee for a few years now, and she always impresses me. The slow section around 3:10 is a cool surprise so look out for that! This song is free on Bandcamp along with a lot of other sweet songs on the “Whompadelic Trip” album.

The Black Sun Empire & Noisia “Hideous” remix competition is over. I would like to give a huge congrats to Haywyre for winning the competition with his unbelievable glitchy, jazzed out remix. I was sad to see that the trio Audeka didn’t place, but Haywyre is more than deserving himself. Audeka has given out the download to their neuro-hop gem so not all is lost. Happy downloading.

Joe Ford is one of the hottest names in bass music right now and the majority of the population doesn’t even know it yet. After his last successful release this year, “The Mission” EP, it comes to no surprise that he has yet again dominated with his “Culture” EP. Joe Ford kicks off this fresh EP with the title track “Culture”. This song is a behemoth, it is like Joe Ford thought to himself “Build up? Nah, I’m going to rape my fans in the face with my opening track on this release”. The waves of bass on this drop are ridiculous, I feel like my ears are being beaten to death by the lightsaber mach 1. “Distilled” tones the EP down a little… just a little. The track brings in the ever growing neuro-hop styling, bouncing you through some great kicks with the addition of that lovely flavor of reese-bass. As a gamer, this is the kind of track I’d want to be blasting my through hordes of noobs with.
I can see “Immobilise” being the theme of a fast traveling Spaceship being chased by another which is firing upon it, weaving in and out of asteroids with the occasional collision. If Michael Bay’s taste in music was worth anyone’s time, he would consider “Immobilise” for a space-flight scene in the next “Transformers” movie. Now, imagine a universe where Lex Luther kills Superman, Cell obliterates the Saiyans, and the Avengers perish at the hands of Ultron. Unopposed, “Villain” would be the track played as these cocky evil doers decimated our planet. If villains actually won, this song would be perfect, but considering they never do, we will just have to sit back and bump out to this badass tune with our imaginations.
Last, but not least we see the return of Asa on yet another EP ender with Inspected. “Real Talk” isn’t the kind of track we have been seeing throughout Joe Ford’s EP, it is the end of the story we have been listening to. “Culture” started us with the intense game changer that set the premise, “Distilled” the attempted fight through the initial bass threat, “Immobilise” the fight to the death, and “Villain” the defeat and utter destruction of what is left. Last, is the calm after the storm, with those left alive wondering what else is to come, the “Real Talk”. This is one of the best works I have heard all year, Joe Ford just set the bar.
