I think it’s safe to say electro is making a comeback. Cyberpunkers and Far Too Loud are helping in large part, and so is Kannibalen Records, who just today released a single from the two aforementioned artists. “Ready To Blast” is an electrifying creation that you’re likely to hear at all the upcoming winter festivals. It’s got the energy and hype that can be found in numerous anthemic records. Each artist’s flavors can be tasted in this boisterous production that isn’t for the faint of heart. Both drops are absolutely killer, but each hit a bit different. Suffice to say, you’ll be raging throughout the entire song from start to finish. If you are “Ready To Blast,” then head over to iTunes below and get the single for yourself. It’s definitely worth it.

Pretty much since Apashe started making music he’s managed to create unique records. He’s continued to do so via Kannibalen Records, who released his latest EP Tank Girls, a two track project that shows off the producer’s diversity. The title track, a collaboration with the vocalist Zitaa, kicks things off with a bang. Apashe blasts us with ferociously seductive basslines atop a four-to-the-floor kick pattern, something that we don’t hear from Apashe too often. Safe to say, he nails it. “Commander” comes next with the help of Panther, a long time Kannibalen collaborator. He switches the sound to a more trap style, playing off Panther’s fiery rhymes. After the climax, Apashe drops listeners into a firing range they have to dance to survive in. “Commander” is unlike anything you’ve heard before.

One label that is pushing the boundaries of music like no other is Kannibalen Records. Their roster includes the vomitstep king Snails, label heads Black Tiger Sex Machine, the orchestral bass master Apashe, Dabin, and more. They recently celebrated their four year anniversary, so they decided to give back to the fans in the form of Free Flesh, a free compilation album with classic Kannibalen songs. It’s jam packed with records from their crew, who have stopped at nothing to create tracks that are like nothing else out there. If you haven’t joined the KanniFam yet, this is a perfect time to get in, because this compilation is a gold mine; and rest assured, they have plenty of more firepower ready to be unleashed.

Last year Australian duo Two Can released a remix of Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do” and it was really good, but after checking out Bee’s Knees new version of the 1989 release (released earlier this week) I have a new preference. Bringing on Jill Lamoureux from Scavenger Hunt to recreate Mrs. Jackson’s vocals and putting their own 80’s electronic feel on the production aspect, it’s an amazing piece of music.

The South African producer Haezer is known for his vicious beats that walk the line between electro and techno. His latest track through Kannibalen Records, “Machine,” is no exception, although this time he brings a little extra bass to the mix. Haezer packs a whole lot of attitude in this underground record that I could easily see being played at some Euro-trash warehouse rave. It’s a little different from what we usually hear from Kannibalen, but that’s probably why Haezer is their most recent signee. Look for him to make some more noise through the end of the year, with next year shaping up to be a big one for him.

Black Tiger Sex Machine and Dabin have collaborated before, however they’ve come a long way since “Jack Dat Body.” Both are now touring the United States, with BTSM soon to help kick off The Gathering at TomorrowWorld this Thursday. Surely, festival goers will be hearing “BREAK” during the set. The collaboration is yet another astonishing record that has been added to the Kannibalen Records catalog. With this single, the acts bring a destructive electro production to the table that starts off with an emotionally alluring introduction that Dabin shreds some guitar on. I can’t think of any record that sounds like this one, so props to these guys for making something special. Lastly, the Mad Max inspired artwork is bad ass!

If you’re a fan of mashup packs and electro-house, this is the perfect sound for you. Marat Leons, known for collaberating with likes of of Gazzo and others, has put together a preview of what the mashup pack entials, which is available to download for free here.
Mashups are a bit old school, but the construction of these mashups are a nice work.
