“It’s no longer a Mike Stud concert, it’s a Mike Stud [email protected]#ckin party”

Mike Stud just finished up the last four stops on his Stud Nation Tour, so you know what that means, this is the last one for a while. On the bright side he’ll be back in the studio giving the people what they love, new music. In this weeks Touring’s Boring episode the party continues as Mike and his amigos make stops through Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. If you’ve missed any episodes you can catch up on those here.

Dubstep | Minnesota – Altered States EP

Posted by on November 25, 2012

Minnesota is known for his unique style of dubstep, bass music, what have it, that has created a niche sound for him in this increasingly crowded dance music field. Following up his “Astral Projection EP” earlier this year and flurry of remixes over the summer, Christian Bauhofer, better known by his stage persona, Minnesota, delights the world with yet another free extended play to finish out the year. The EP takes us on a musical journey through the various influences on his sound from the more hip hop oriented tracks in “Float” and “Tokyo” and the trap influenced “Yoga Pants” (look at his profile pic on twitter), to “To The Floor”, which serves up much of the same eclectic sweeping synths and smooth dubstep that we have come to know him for and the more chilled out “Indian Summer” that serves as a perfect way to end this EP. The entire 5 track EP is free so you have no excuse not to get it.

Dubstep | R Rated #54

Posted by on November 8, 2012

With Krewella’s Play Hard Remix EP in the making, we are seeing some glimpses of their remixes surfacing rapidly. This week we got two free remixes of Krewella’s tracks, one from Culture Code and the other from The Pegboard Nerds. Both artist take a different take on their given tracks; With Culture code providing us with one of their melodic, trancey styled tracks they have been tearing the stages with. On the other hand we have Pegboard Nerds delivering another stellar heavy tune with some funky synths and aggressive growls.

Although we already posted Dirtyphonics latest single along with the remixes entitled “DIRTY”, we couldn’t keep out this new freebie given away that wasn’t on the EP. Synchronice nailed this remix giving it even more heavy bass and crazier synths than the original. This one definitely takes the top spot for my favorite remix of this track. You can grab the download HERE or below.

Although these next two tracks aren’t exactly “filthy” tracks, they earned their spots on R Rated. Minnesota has created some heavy tracks in his day, but lately he has been leaning more towards creating appealing melodic tracks and they definitely seem to be working. This Adventure Club remix sets the mood for a nice autumn afternoon.

Continuing on with the melodic tracks, this next one is by the Inspected ‘Dream Team’. Yes the record label Inspected was able to round up some of the biggest names under their label to create this next masterpiece in celebration of Movember. Gemini, Asa, Culprate, and KOAN Sounds collaborated on this next piece to create a unique melodic track.

To cap off R Rated, our very own Mach threw together this heavy mix. Don’t take this caution lightly, but if you can’t handle a hour and fifteen minutes of filth then this mix isn’t for you. Download the mix HERE. Read on below for the track list.

Featured, Interviews | Sammy Adams “On The Spot” Interview [FNT Exclusive]

Last week I had the opportunity to sit down with Sammy Adams for an “On The Spot” Interview while he was doing a show in Minneapolis, MN. I go beyond the average interview questions you would expect to hear in an interview. We talk about a variety of topics from what wakes him up in the morning to the best date spot in Massachusetts. The interview aside, the show was awesome and he performed some unreleased music. One song being “All Night Longer” which he recently filmed a video for that’s going to be released in the near future! If you haven’t already grabbed “Only One” on iTunes you can buy that here!
