Dyro debuts on STMPD RCRDS with 'Bring It Down'

Filed by fmdj2u7leqg6cfmdj2u7leqg6c

Dyro has been one the most exciting producers over the years, moving between dubstep and fierce electro house which channels just as much that bass heaviness. Now he makes his long-awaited debut for Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS in the form ‘Bring It Down’.

An absolute rocket a track, it’s characterized by his usual larger-than-life synth sounds and the contrast between euphoric melody and hard-edged bass drops. With skipping, shuffling beats driving the track along, pitched-up vocal and bright chords and warped metallic low-end grunts, it’s a rollercoaster a track. His superb production technique shines through.

Man Threatens Mass Shooting In Unofficial EDC Las Vegas Facebook Group

Filed by Abbey ShoreAbbey Shore

Mass shootings have become an unfortunate reality living in America in recent years. What is even more troubling is that music festivals and concerts have been the targets these attacks. Last October a man launched a terror attack from the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas towards The Route 91 Music Festival. In the aftermath, it was found to be the deadliest attack in America since the events that occurred on 9/11.

Many festivals have worked tirelessly to stop similar incidents. Ultra Miami which had a similar location to Route 91 stationed police counter-snipers on buildings, utilized helicopters equipped with spotlights and took every threat, no matter how unlikely as credible. A man who made a joking Facebook post with a high powered rifle was in custody a little under an hour. Police are taking no chances.

Man Threatens EDC Las Vegas

Today a man took to the EDC Las Vegas Unficial Facebook Group and threatened to attack next year’s event. Commenting that he will “beat the high score” or the Route 91 attack. Fans were quick to report the post, and many found the man’s true identity linked through his burner account.

Many ors on the /r/electricdaisycarvinal has reported that the police have been contacted and the posters address has been found. It is sick to think that these threats can be joked about by some. But we are happy to see the dance music community acting fast, and taking the proper steps to make sure these tragic events never come to fruition.


R3HAB And Quinn Lewis Team Up For The Delightfully Light - 'How You've Been'

Filed by Yun PinkertonYun Pinkerton

R3HAB is nothing short an enigma to me at this point. The artist who got his start championed by the likes Afrojack and David Guetta for his rip-roaring Dutch house productions has grown into a really well-rounded artist. It also seems the R3HAB has released a song a week for the last year and a half – something that is near superhuman when it comes to producing. In his latest work, a collaboration with Quinn Lewis called ‘How You’ve Been’ R3HAB has taken a more subtle production approach, and it is pretty refreshing if I am being honest.

R3HAB And Quinn Lewis – ‘How You’ve Been’

While R3HAB has experimented with the future bass sound a good amount in his recent work, he has taken a lighter approach on ‘How You’ve Been’. He allows the wonderful vocals from Quinn Lewis to be the centerpiece the song and crafted an upbeat, funky little beat around them.

I will be honest – I usually am a bit nervous with artists start to produce all over the board. In my opinion, it is better to be a master one genre, rather than a novice among many. R3HAB has proven my thought process wrong time and time again with his works, and I am thoroughly satisfied each time he does. Check out the single below.

Filed by Elsa MajewskiElsa Majewski

Parker is having a massive year in 2018 so far. He just enjoyed his EDC Las Vegas debut, to a crowd that was blown away by his innovative tunes. Now he has followed up that appearance with a catchy little summer gem f Lowly Palace called ‘Lemonade’.

Parker – ‘Lemonade’

This track is as refreshing as a cold glass its citrus beverage name sake on a blazing hot day. Lowly Palace has an incredible talent when it comes to A&R. The imprint has continuously found some the most talented and original producers dance music has to fer. Parker has really demonstrated what sets him apart in ‘Lemonade’.

The track is upbeat in nature, and features some glitched out, choppy vocals samples over top a wonderfully catchy piano riff. The major chord progression mixed with the enigmatic vocals make this a track that will put a smile on your face. Check out the single below.


Allen French Releases Inspired, Innovative Remix Of Robotaki's - 'Butterscotch'

Filed by Ellamae AlewineEllamae Alewine

Rarely do I listen to a remix that shocks me so thoroughly that I have to go back to the original just to get my bearings. But that is exactly what Allen French has done with his rework Robotaki’s single ‘Butterscotch’. While the original tune had a real depth to it through sound production and strong lyricism, Allen French has incorporated classic guitar elements that will melt your soul. This is the reason why I chose to write about dance music, it just does not get better than innovation like that heard in this song.

Robotaki – ‘Butterscotch’ (Allen French Remix)

While many artists have incorporated live instrumentation into their productions over the past many years, not many can flawlessly merge the worlds past and present. That is exactly what Allen French captures in his remix. He has taken a more or less hip-hop and blues oriented track and flipped it into a Spanish ballad. I literally cannot believe that I am listening to the same vocals when hearing the remix.

This is true musical talent right here folks. While I am not ashamed to admit I have not heard Allen French before this remix, you best believe I am following him on all socials and streaming services now. Check out the remix below.


Wavedash & Quest Releases Brutal New EP, 'Devil Music' Off MAD ZOO

Filed by Joe NoletteJoe Nolette

Every generation champions a new genre music. Rock hit the scene in the 50’s, then protest songs the 60’s, soon disco took over in the 70’s, electronica and pop in the 80’s, hip-hop and rap in the 90’s and course dance music in the 2000’s. What do all these seemingly unlike genres have to do with each other? They were demonized by older generations the time as being ‘Devil Music’ or promoting radical ideas that go against the grain polite society. Wavedash and Quest have doubled down on this sentiment with their latest EP f Mat Zo’s MAD ZOO imprint.

Wavedash & Quest – ‘Devil Music

This trio artists have dropped a three track EP which pushes the limit even bass music. Mat Zo wanted to highlight artists who are producing without expectation and taking chances to help push the accepted boundaries electronic music to new limits. Wavedash & Quest have succeeded in doing so, and in a big way.

‘Devil Music’ starts f with a haunting Baroque orchestral intro entitled ‘Adagio’. As the intro progresses from string arrangements to heavy distortion, it sets the mood for what is to come. The middle track the EP is the single, ‘Devil Music’ which features fknsyd, a Florida based lyricist. ‘Devil Music’ is an absolute clusterf**K sound in the best way possible. This track best highlights the sound production ability Wavedash and Quest. It is high energy, relentless, but features some truly captivating moments.

When the heavy bass cuts out and fknsyd gives a ghostly interlude on top a driving, filtered beat, you will get goosebumps. The track changes tempo throughout leaving the listener not knowing what to expect at each and every drop. The final tune on the effort in ‘Star Power’. The track starts out as you might expect – a heavy onslaught bass. But the second half this tune is where things get really interesting.

‘Star Power’ ends with a pensive, if not devilishly upbeat outro. It is like watching a blue sky emerge after a harsh summer thunderstorm. The last minute slowly brings listeners back to the surface after dragging them to the depths hell. Mat Zo wanted to highlight forward-thinking artists on his imprint, and Wavedash & Quest fit description and more. Check out the new EP below.

Crystal Skies Dominates A Remix For Seven Lions Calling You Home

Filed by amkr03eydamkr03eyd

Crystal Skies has been f people’s radar for far too long. For years, Aaron Dawson and Britian Holcomb have quietly been pumping out some the best music I have ever heard. It would not surprise me to find out that Crystal Skies runs an OBGYN fice in their spare time because all they do is deliver. Not only have they crushed remixes for artists such as Crywolf, Illenium, and Laura Brehm, but they have one the most impressive catalogs originals; they have also collaborated with one my favorite artists Koven on You Me And Gravity, which can be heard HERE. It is the remixing abilities Crystal Skies that is what is on display here.

Seven Lions had a remix package set for his track Calling You Home. That must have been before the Crystal Skies remix had made it to his inbox because this take on the Seven Lions track is so good it was granted a standalone release. After listening to it, I too believe it worthy. The intro the Crystal Skies maintains the etheric feel the original by keeping the focus on the amazing vocals performed by Runn. It is the drops that are the star this remix. Crystal Skies has some the best growls in dubstep. I am talking Koan Sound/Au5/Kill The Noise type sound. The first drop hits whisking sound around a wailing guitar. The angry dubstep drop is in direct contrast to the beauty the song yet it fits perfectly. At the second drop, Crystal Skies show they can dominate the melodic side dubstep as well. This drop hits with a synthesized explosion sound draped over hard hitting drums. It is crystal clear to me why this track was given the green light. This remix is only the start what is to come, this year, from these two exciting producers.
