Electro, Trap | Electric Mantis – Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops

Posted by on November 27, 2013

It’s finals time over here in the land of the Swedes but I’m taking a little coffee break to share some music that’s been helping me knock out all my work. Oregon based producer Electric Mantis brings us this delightful electro-trap track appropriately titled “Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops,” perfect for those currently listening to artists along the likes of Flume and L D R U. In fact, I have to credit one of the hottest music blogs on the internet right now for bringing this track into my life – that being Djemba Djemba’s Soundcloud Stream. You can read all about Electric Mantis’ success story via Reddit here, meanwhile I’ve got to get back to reading the past three weeks worth of assignments. Whoops! ¯\_(?)_/¯

Electronic | Cosmo’s Midnight – Surge (Willow Beats Wizard Remix)

Posted by on November 7, 2013

Cosmo’s Midnight, like most upcoming Australian artists, is one of those artists who’s tracks you can pretty much always rely on to be ripper (that’s an Aussie slang term for “awesome” my friend Michael from Melbourne taught me). This remix by Willow Beats, who happen to also be from Melbourne, is a bit of a chopped & screwed remix, and I really like the edge it adds to it in contrast the v trill original. Free download to start your day off right.

Dubstep | Midnight Conspiracy – Nebula

Posted by on September 10, 2013

Midnight Conspiracy - NebulaHeavy new tune from Midnight Conspiracy today for hitting 50k fans on Facebook. The title, “Nebula”, is well suited, though I imagine it to be a much more violent place then led onto. The track is mostly Dubstep, but a bit of Moombahton and Electro creeps in on the drop to keep things a little mixed up. I am always up for heavy, violent sounding bass. Midnight Conspiracy hit it right with this.

Dubstep, Electro, Trance | Seven Lions with Myon & Shane 54 Ft. Tove Lo – Strangers

Posted by on August 25, 2013

Seven Lions fans, rejoice! My eyes light up whenever I see Seven Lions’ name, and if you’re like me, you’ll be itching to dig into this tune if you haven’t already. He tackles this project with vocalist Tove Lo and house/trance production duo Myon and Shane 54. The song is part of the original motion picture soundtrack for Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It is an immensely ambitious track, even for a revolutionary artist like Seven Lions. Not only does it combine his signature cocktail of trance and dubstep, but we can hear a lot of house elements in the mix and, more interestingly, a heavy reliance on a gnarly minimal electro drop.


Events | Five Things We Can’t Wait For At Electric Zoo 2013

Posted by on August 8, 2013

Summer is flying by, which is bittersweet on one hand but totally amazing on the other. Why? Because it means that we’re getting closer and closer to Electric Zoo’s blowout fifth year. If you’re not up on your EZoo life, check out our official recap video from last year and see what you missed. Yeah — it was pretty killer. Fortunately, this year is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever for many reasons, not least of which are:

1) Two mainstages (count ’em, TWO) and an expanded festival site on Randall’s Island. More on that later.

2) A new 18 and up policy. Sorry, youths (#YOUTHS) of the world — I’m too old for your shenanigans and look forward to mingling with an older and wiser crowd. *Wheezes; testily gestures for you to GET OFF MY LAWN.*

3) A totally killer lineup — which is par for the course by EZoo’s standards. There’s lots to be excited about here, but we’ve come up with five things that we’re especially stoked for. Check ’em out after the jump.


Electro, House, Videos | Calvin Harris ft Ayah Marar – Thinking About You (Video)

Posted by on July 16, 2013

Calvin Harris ft. Ayah Marar - Thinking About You (Michael Brun Remix)Calvin Harris just dropped a massive music video for his upcoming single “Thinking About You” featuring the lovely Ayah Marar, and folks this video is legendary. There are actually two videos on YouTube at the moment due to a few glimpses of nudity, and a steamy sex scene in a private jet, so if you’re feeling risque and a nice pair of buttox doesn’t bother you, feel free to enjoy the explicit version. I’m still trying to figure out what the story line behind this video is, but nonetheless I can’t help but be a fan of the cinematography, and the epic shots… Oh and if you’re wondering who Ayah Marar is or where she comes from, she’s one of Calvin’s closest friends, and currently has an album out called “The Real” which I invite all of you to check out, as I’m sure we’ll be hearing more of her as “Thinking About You” climbs up the charts, and into your favorite Top 40 radio stations…

Electro, Trap | Wave Racer FBi Minimix

Posted by on July 11, 2013

Where do I even start with this mix… like hold the phone, WOAH. Ima take a quick second to explain to you what happened the first time I heard about this Australian DJ. See that picture above? That was it. The moment the sound waves in “Rock U Tonite” hit me, I was transported into distant land of dolphins, topless Jeeps, girls in 80’s vintage swimsuits and rainbows. Lots of rainbows. It’s possible I even shed a tear. That picture above isn’t some artist’s rendition of my experience, but rather Wave Racer’s Soundcloud user photo. He took me there. And it was awesome.

Anyways, Wave Racer crafted this mix for the Sydney-based radio station FBi 94.5, who described it as…

… [A] melodic treacle drizzling over sweet vocoder that melts like honeycomb in the mouth. All resting on a bed of dense synthcake and thick yet brittle percussion. It’s music too delectable to refuse.

I know that’s a lot to handle (who knows what those upside down Aussies are on these days) so lemme break it down for you. You’ll happen to notice the tracklist doesn’t include any of Wave Racer’s own songs. This mix, rather, is more of a compilation of some of his biggest inspirations (see: Cashmere Cat and Rustie) as well as artists with a similar style who are, essentially, artists you should get to know.

Overall, this mix, and all the artists featured on it, rock. It’s vivacious, it’s psychedelic, it’s carefree, and even at times, it gets a little sensual. Just another example of the thunder DJs are packing down under. Take note.
