Bass, House | Lektrique Drops EP With Epic Sam Lamar Collab

Posted by on September 6, 2018

The Belgian producer Lektrique has long been a creative that has pushed bass music forward despite not being a name that everyone may recognize at first mention. The Kannibalen Records mainstay and radio host is taking his career to the next level, not only with epic tracks including the two that make up his Black Magic EP, but he has recently moved to Los Angeles to hold things down on the West coast. Now, the move doesn’t work for everyone, but given his talents and the success he’s already had, he’s set to flourish. Just take this first project since the relocation as an example of what’s to come. Both tracks, including the Sam Lamar collab, are next level and we’re sure to see the bar raise even further soon.

Posted by on June 20, 2018

One name that keeps popping up in bass music is Top $helf. The LA beatmaker has had a string of solid releases, including our introduction to him last year on the Kannibalen Records Christmas compilation. He has now returned to the illustrious imprint with his debut EP, Oblivion, that comes complete with four tracks. All four singles share a certain tone that weaves them together as a project, but each have their own identity within the grand scheme. It’s a project with depth and we’re glad Top $helf finally took the step to do an extended project like this one.

Indie | Jack O’Brien Debuts With Indie EP Boo Hoo

Posted by on June 13, 2018

Berklee School of Music is a breeding ground for young talent. It’s hard to keep tabs on everyone who comes out of there, but the NorCal raised Jack O’Brien of is a name you’ll need to know. The recent graduate made his way back across the US, but ended up settling in Seattle and created his debut project, Boo Hoo. The release is made up of five singer/songwriter tracks that keep a simple, chill tone. The minimal style works because of Jack’s immense talents that we hope to see more of as time passes.

Chill | Dabin Brings The Feels With His Memorable Pyres EP

Posted by on March 30, 2018

Dabin has long been a producer that has pushed the boundaries of sound. He’s shifted his focus over the years and settled in on his own signature style that’s caught the eyes and ears of esteemed talents such as Illenium, who has taken Dabin on tour and continues to work alongside him. I’ve been waiting for another big project from Dabin and today it came in the form of his Pyres EP. Complete with two tracks, Dabin’s iconic style is displayed in full. Each track is equally as powerful, but share a slight difference in tone. This is the EP you need for the weekend. He brought all the feels on it!

Bass, Hip-Hop | Apashe Releases Historic Requiem EP Inspired By Mozart

Posted by on February 23, 2018

Apashe has long been known for his hybrid sound, but now he’s upped the ante. His historic Requiem EP just dropped today on Kannibalen Records with three tracks that are literally unlike anything I’ve heard before. What would you think if someone said they made an EP of classical mixed with hip-hop and trap? You’d probably laugh, but once you listen to this project there’s no laughter, just awe-struck silence. It’s the beginning of the year and a lot of lists have been coming out about what producers are going to have the biggest years… Apashe should be at the top of the list.

Bass, Electronic | Michael White Releases Next EP “Diamonds” On Firepower Records

Posted by on February 5, 2018

Quickly rising artist Michael White, most notably seen via his many NCS releases, raked in over 1 million streams on Spotify alone in 2017. His music has the unwavering support of BTSM, Ephwurd, Jauz, and JOYRYDE. Now Michael White is ready to release his new EP Diamonds, a four track effort boasting a diverse mix of drumstep, electro, future bass, and trap. “Diamonds In My Mouth” sets the stage by weaving together intense elements of drumstep and deep bass with hard-hitting, distorted vocal snippets.

“Make The Hit” sees White collaborating with GARABATTO and taking his sound to new grounds by incorporating dubstep, reggae, synths, and touches of trap for good measure. “Moves” and the Rob Gasser-assisted “Pleasure” help bring this power-packed effort to a memorable finale, as “Pleasure” shows off a more subdued side of White’s production as the experience wraps up.

Michael White seems to never be short on releases, something most likely to be reflected as he continues his path in 2018.
