Anjunabeats revelation ilan Bluestone has released his three track EP, after “Big Ben” was premiered fittingly by Above & Beyond at Alexandria Palace in London for ABGT 50. The title track “Big Ben” may garner the most attention and pass the “anthem test” for most, but do not sleep on the rest of the EP. “Alysium” and “Waves Of LA” have the vintage ilan Bluestone sound with soaring synth driven melodies, fluttering piano and thumping basslines. We have had to endure all of this time with only one ilan Bluestone tune at a time, so we are spoiled getting three all at once.

It’s an easy Saturday night, I’m checking out my boy K-Woody‘s latest single “No More” and SoundCloud continuously streams me to “Wherever You Are” and I’m immediately captured by Shannon Livewell’s vocals and K-Woody’s laidback ‘talk to’em’ flow. Yes, I’ve been sleeping on this project. Entirely tracked and mixed in Nashville, TN “Phases” is some real shit, no other way to put it, and that’s why it’s good. With productions by Nate Fox, Ghost Notes, Big K.R.I.T., and more, this is a solid album which deserves your attention. I’m going to let you feel this one. This is a must listen. Peace!

Here’ some dark down low fat bass for you on this cold Saturday morning as Parisian production duo Alesia drop their remix of Dog Blood’s “Middle Finger” out March 4th via Boyz Noise, OWSLA, and Big Beat. True to their word of “fuck a genre,” this version is a dirty yet clean composition of bass, rhythm and sound that screams throw your middle fingers up, all for your listening pleasure. I’m sold, every time Alesia releases a new record, they always take us on a trip. Hold on tight. This is a must listen!

House, Interviews | Lars Allertz: Sweden’s Next Big Thing

2013 has been the breakthrough year for Sweden’s new DJ/producer talent Lars Allertz. His hit track, “Make You Mine” has scored in the Top 10 of the Swedish iTunes chart, been aired on Swedish national radio, and played during his first arena gig at the Swedish electronic music festival, November Lights. As things are looking bright for the 21-year-old, our guest blogger Rebecca made a trip to Stockholm to talk to him about his progressing career.

It’s classic Swedish winter weather and the traffic is slow, just as it is every year. I never learn that the road workers seem to always forget how to handle the snow. My bus is late, and I’m late to my meeting with Lars Allertz. Shit.

After a ”refreshing” sprint in my not-so-sprint-friendly combat boots from the bus station to Uppsala’s central train station, I throw myself on the train to Stockholm. I arrive fifty minutes later, stressed out and therefore very nervous. But Lars Allertz greets me with the kindest approach, and I realize that his down to earth personality is forgiving, even for my stupid mistake to clean up the apartment after last night’s raging after-party instead of choosing the early bus.

Allertz suggests we take a short walk to his studio located in the prettiest and nicest area in Stockholm – Östermalm. It’s the kind of area where I, in my dreams, imagine myself buying the perfect turn of the century apartment when I, in the future, am ridiculously successful and perfect (fingers crossed).

During the walk we get into a relaxed conversation. Allertz tells me about the studio, how it’s in the same building as the DJ duo Nause, and that he in facts spends most of his time here “where the magic happens.”


Bass, Hip-Hop | The Gift – DGAF (prod By Liddicat)

Posted by on February 7, 2014


Big things coming from down under: Australian producer Liddicat just teamed up with Kiwi rapper The Gift to bring you an absolute banger, meeting the standards of some of the biggest names in hip-hop right now; and honestly, it’s a hell of a lot better than some of the more mainstream stuff that’s been coming out recently. With a clear trap influence on the beat, sporting a deep & dark bass line, along with a fresh flow from The Gift, you’re not going to want to miss the free download on this one. Guaranteed most-played song this weekend – get to it.
