Albums | “we’re the last to leave” is the latest offering by Aussie artist Ordley

Posted by on February 2, 2023

Ordley is rising Australian newcomer who is crafting a unique blend of indie-dance/melodic-house music in the same lane asa Fred Again, Duskus and Tourist. His latest drop “we’re the last to leave” is a groovy one well worth checking out, so listen to it now above and read a quote from Ordley on the release below!

“This is a song about conveying the tension from how we wish life would be and how it actually is, and the strains this can place on our romantic relationships as we find the resilience to keep going. I wrote and produced this song in one morning after hearing a news segment about young people’s employment still not recovering after the pandemic, and the anxiety this was bringing to them. This was all too close to home for me as an artist, and that emotion went straight into this record. Musically, it’s a fun, chill record. Fast and dancey. I think the percussion has a UK rave feel, keeping the momentum super high and the vocals are showcasing my fun and playful nature.” – Ordley

Posted by on January 27, 2023

Toronto-based producer Dropwizz makes his return to FUXWITHIT with the powerful trap anthem ‘Burn’ on January 26th. The track serves as a follow-up to his heavy-hitting FUXWITHIT debut ‘Gulag’ off Champions Of The Underground Vol. 1. Dropwizz has been climbing the ranks in the bass scene with a slew of impressive releases on brednbutter that included the breakout ‘FOOTWORK,’ which has accumulated nearly 900,000 streams to date. ‘Burn’ elevates his signature style for an energetic and menacing banger.

Staying true to its name ‘Burn’ is assured to raise temperatures and destroy anything in its path. The opening melody is dark and wrapped in mystique. As the drums build, the vocals add a layer of catchiness while remaining gritty. The drops pack a powerful punch as mind-bending synths drift over crisp percussion and nasty bass. Stabs of brass underscore the intensity taking the track to new heights. Mixing elements of classic electronic trap with cutting-edge bass music makes ‘Burn’ a standout heater. Expect this one to set crowds ablaze. 


“Listeners will first be welcomed by a mantric melody with a hint of mystery, then progressing into an unexpected buildup which then evolves into a violent and energetic bass drop. I personally picture myself entering a dungeon where I will have to battle the final boss, doing whatever it takes to prevail victorious.”
-Dropwizz
