Electronic, Moombahton | The M Machine – Additional Faces

Posted by on December 30, 2013

Madness – pure madness. I first heard this little piece of magic in The M Machine’s mix for OWSLA After Dark (My favourite mix of the year). It’s such a creative musical venture that it makes my head spin. Suspense is built well with an entertaining intro and build that introduces the beat. The power of the beat at 1:45 is Godzilla-sized. With a moombahish pattern and encompassing bass, it really takes me over. Then, out of no where, the song picks up into a wicked drum and bass shuffle.

The whole song is amazing in many ways, but as a friend pointed out to me, the most impressive illusion created here is that of depth. The sounds compliment each other perfectly, but it feels as though they do so from a distance. And width – I’m not sure that I’ve ever heard sound so wide. Huge, low bass and long, wide sounds add to the illusion. Without adding an overwhelming amount of sounds, these legendary artists have created a sound that is extremely full. This song is way entertaining and displays some next level engineering. Bravo guys, this is brilliant stuff.

Progressive House | Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Wakanda

Posted by on February 4, 2013

On this packed music Monday comes a surprise from Axtone who have decided to release their single from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike “Wakanda” a week early and no one is complaining. The gregarious Belgian Djs are coming off of a banner year and after the release of “Madness” last week they look to top 2012 with an even better 2013. As a reference to a fictitious African country in the Marvel comic “Black Panther”, “Wakanada” mixes tribal influences with their high energy sound found in the heart pounding four on the floor bass line, heavy kick and driving synths. Expect to hear this early and often as a contender for one of the tracks of WMC, especially after already being championed by the likes of SHM & Thomas Gold.

Electro-House | Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Coone & Lil Jon – Madness

Posted by on January 31, 2013

This is what I would call the Showtek effect. Hardstyle has now become cool in electro house because they made some fat tracks. However that does not mean we will see hardstyle break into the mainstream because let’s be honest for most people hardstyle is like that one friend you have — you can hang out with with them in small doses, but too much and you are wondering why you liked it the first place. “Madness” involves a bit too much yelling albiet coherent yelling from Lil Jon and a ridiculous instrumental from the Belgian Djs, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and hardstyle producer Coone combining big room interludes, hardstyle kicks and powerful synth leads that embody the title of the track. Coming off of an outstanding 2012 and with “Wakanda” on the way on Axtone, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are making a push into the upper realm of the dance music elite.

Woah, I never thought I’d say this, but Muse is back! They seemed to have discovered the most innovative way to blend Electro with Rock, without losing their Rocker inside. Muse is famous for their orchestral intros and outros, this new styling for them has absolutely made Muse one of the most revolutionary bands of our time. Their new album “The 2nd Law” is already available for pre-order, and is releasing on October 2nd. After watching this video, this album may be one of the most anticipated Rock albums in years, history in the making.
