The Bingo Players have become synonymous with quality. Leading the way for their label, Hysteria Recordings, their singles from “Rattle” to “Out Of My Mind” have remained mainstays of DJ sets all across the spectrum. “Buzzcut” departs from their signature synth that has made their sound so unique and a cut above the pack, going for a grinding low end, with a punchy, hardstyle influenced, alternating bass line and teasing, pitched builds. Is this their strongest effort to date? I would have to say no, since it seems to merge towards the trends in dance music, instead of remaining unique, but it is still a good addition to the Bingo Players discography. Oh, and also if you want there is a video of Melanie Iglesias getting a glove show in almost no clothing with “Buzzcut” as the soundtrack, if you want to watch, up to you.

Sev and I have been on top of this rising new subgenre of Neurofunk called Neuro-hop. The subgenre is a blend of Neurofunk (sub of Drum&Bass), and Hip-Hop, with more producers jumping in on the style on the style each day. Disprove dropped this hit today, pushing the limits of where bass music can go. He incorporated a funk midtempo like beat and the best part is it’s free. All around quality tune right here.

Growing up as a male in an upper middle class white family was rough. Nobody ever gave me a chance. Luckily though, my parents bought me a Macbook and I became a blogger. That all accumulated today when I came across this track. It is very rare that I find something with such exceptional production quality from such seemingly unknown producers. “Ascension” is what I believe progressive house should be. I’m not saying I no longer enjoy it, but it’s obvious that the genre has turned drastically commercial. This track, however, is a true diamond in the rough. Resembling a tad to Porter Robinson’s “Language”, it boasts bright melodies and pulsating synths that are sure to leave you aroused. The best part is, it’s free.

Together these Producer/DJ’s craft beats and combine forces with an array of quality rappers. Preview and download their earlier projects as well as this one entirely here. Just The Day is definitely a keeper.

When looking for amazing melodies and production, look no further than Pegboard Nerds. Having teamed up with the rising star Tristam and the guys over at Monstercat to release this amazing Mid-tempo track, there is no stoping them. Their tracks are so unique and well produced its hard not to be addicted to their style and aggressiveness. Approaching almost the halfway point in the year, if I were to say there is one artist to look out for in 2013 it is undoubtedly the Pegboard Nerds. Nothing but quality comes from this duo and it is all inspiring work.

Dyro has been creating quite the buzz recently, with his single with Hardwell “Never Say Goodbye” getting its world premier at Ultra, his collaboration with Bassjackers, “Grid” remaining a staple of sets for months and having released a slew of remixes for the likes of Tiesto, Gabriel & Dresden & more.
“Leprechauns & Unicorns” gives us a new spin on the gritty, Dyro sound that we have to come to love and behold with brooding, pulsing saws, a thumping bass line and pitched synths that round out the formula for Dyro’s next massive track. The two fairytale animals seem too nice for such a grimy, intense track, maybe Dyro has been watching the “Leprechaun” movies of late on his long flights around the world. Leprechaun in the Hood with Ice-T and Leprechaun in Space are both quality films, 5 stars, if anyone was wondering.
