So I was a little late on this one but you have to understand, I haven’t talked to a girl in a month and a half. I’ve been following Richello since like two weeks ago and I got to tell you, my last two weeks have been awful. Regardless, Richello is a great producer and has mastered his style of uplifting progressive house. “Uncover” by Zara Larsson went through a remix contest so in order to get posted you need to stand out, which his remix does.

Seven Lions is back at it again with another stunning track. This time alongside a producer of similar style, Minnesota, in an outstanding melodic dubstep track. This release came out of nowhere, but how can anyone complain about such an amazing track as well as a free download to go along with it. We saw Mimi Page on Bassnectar’s collab last year alongside DC breaks in a similar style track, but I think this one might have outdone it by a bit. Here is what Minnesota had to say about it.

Arguably the hottest producers right now, their singles “Lift Off” and “The Code“ are still heavily in circulation, while their “This Is What It Feels Like“ remix is the potent remix of choice for Armin van Buuren and many others. Not diverging from their bombastic sound, W&W unleash another massive track that follows much of the same structure and winning formula as “The Code”, providing an unrelenting bass line and thunderous synths.
One can criticize them for sticking to their sound too much or going with a sound that is becoming more and more common, but you have to remember that they helped bring this style to the mainstream and others followed them. Coming up, the gigantic Dutch duo have their collab with Hardwell, which was just recently finished, as well a few IDs on the way.

Fresh New Tracks has always supported Marc Goone. I think he has the talent, and personality, to go a long way in the music industry. His latest tape, does nothing but raises by already high regard for him. Every song is unique, and his cadence and voice are something copycat rappers should strive for. His beat selection, often courtesy of Zuxwitit and Judge, is constantly changing and adapting to his ever improving and ever changing rap style. If you find me another rapper with the same style as Marc Goone, I’ll send you to the A&R’s at Def Jam, because that’s who you should be working for. Even if Marc isn’t your cup of tea, you would have to agree that he is unique, and that’s one thing I look for in the over-satured game of internet rappers.

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.

Addergebroed is an artist not many people have heard of. He has a pretty unique style when it comes to constructing tunes and his sounds. He had a remix done for Sadhu’s ‘Say What’ tune a few months back, but it was just all over the place. However this VIP absolutely blew my mind after the first listen. It has a weird rhythm to it that just latches in your mind forcing you to play it on repeat all day.

A lot of people have been highly anticipating the next Knife Party release. Knife Party had stated that their “Haunted House Tour” was not related to an EP, but as you can see that’s not the case. I do like this EP, but it is further proof of how lazy the duo is when it comes to producing. My take on this EP is positive and negative, just to warn those of you who will take offense or disagreement to my opinions of each track.
“Power Glove” is a fun, hard hitting Electro-House track that I am sure is a blast in a live setting, but half the time I feel like I am listening to another VIP of “Internet Friends”. “LRAD” isn’t my style of House, I know it is a lot of fun in a big room with a good sound system, but I can’t get over how repetitious this style is. I like to be kept interested in a song, this just sounds like a track meant to please the tasteless festival attendees who are on countless drugs anyways. Speaking of an “Internet Friends VIP”, I am a bit disappointed that Knife Party included the actually VIP in this EP. I will not lie that I have been dying to get my hands on it, but seeing as “Power Glove” already sounds a bit like the original in the drop, I can’t help but think they could have picked a better original to include instead. Finally we get to the only track on the EP that actually sounds like a lot of effort and time was put into its creation. “EDM Death Machine” starts out with a kicking beat and light use in samples, it sounds like they learned from over sampling in “Internet Friends”. I love the progression Knife Party uses, my first listen was exciting, they managed to keep me on my toes the entire way through.
To those of you who are thinking “What are you talking about? This EP is amazing!” I do think it is good, amazing is a little far considering how less creative this EP feels as a whole. I would however recommend this to everyone. Knife Party has always made it their job to help you rage, even if they appear to be extremely lazy at times.
