Here’s a Metalectro exclusive preview of Beatbender‘s upcoming single “Anti Optimism”, out October 7th on Jet Set Trash with remixes by Laforcah, The Unique Yagark and I Think I Broke Something. Deep, dark, heavy and fresh, “Anti Optimism” marks a new era of Beatbender sound and it’s definitely one to look forward to!
Another great Electro that hit the stores last week comes by a German artist who goes by the name Dizkodeath. Of course, those who have been checking and following this space are probably aware of the name and the music that follows since Dizkodeath is far from a stranger on this blog. His 4th single release, titled “Orchid” was out last Monday on JST Records and if you have checked the previous 3 singles from Dizkodeath‘s upcoming album “Raw” then you have to agree on 2 things. First that this is an excellent follow up single (something in which both the origina and the great remixes by Gost, Christine and Perturbator have contributed towards) and second that Dizkodeath‘s album “Raw” is going to be one of the biggest albums released in 2014 for all fans of the hard, dark and in this specific case pretty damn groovy Electro. So, check out “Orchid” and stay tuned for more Dizkodeath!
Hell-o to all bass addicts out there and we hope you had a great weekend. Of course the post-weekend-stress disorder that comes on a Monday can never be fun so we thought we would pick up our keyboards and search for those heavy bass remedies that always help on rough Mondays. And Trumpdisco‘s new EP “Third Pt.1″ is can definitely be considered such a release. Out a couple of weeks ago on No Tomorrow Recordings, which admittedly came a bit as a surprise since this isn’t exactly the typical sound we hear from the UK based label, “Third Pt.1″ includes 3 new originals by Trumpdisco who delivers again what his fans would expect. The pulsing groove, heavy bass and few techno/breaks elements are coming together great keeping the EP interesting throughout and if you’re looking for some good Electro you should by all means check this one out!
Continuing the bass assault with one more new release and it’s Laforcah‘s new EP “Scars” which needless to say is one of the heaviest Electro releases we have heard in a while. The Italian duo has already built quite a reputation for their “in your face” Electro Punk sound, style and attitude and “Scars” EP come to add to that reputation. Released on JST Records (Jet Set Trash) “Scars” EP includes 2 originals full of fat distorted basslines and dark themes, a collaboration with Giulio The Bastard (singer of Grind Core band Cripple Bastards) plus remixes by 2 of the underground trash Electro scene’ s finest, with Your Ol’ Lady and Hantise adding their own heavy touch to Laforcah‘s monsterpieces. And if all that isn’t enough to convince those heavy, non-commercial Electro fans among you to check Laforcah‘s 4th EP out then we have nothing else to say that might convince you. So better just hit play and get a taste for yourselves by the preview below.
This week has been great in terms of new releases and all fans of Designer Drugs, especially those who enjoyed their latest album “The Drugs Are In Control”, will be happy to know that a remix album of “The Drugs Are In Control” is now out, including altogether 9 remixes of the track by F.O.O.L, Q.G, Robopunx, Kyro, DJ Antention, Rob De Large, Leatherface, Ian Jury and His Shadow. And it’s an album all hard electro addicts (like us) will have a problem resisting after hitting play on the openning remix by F.O.O.L. So we thought the least we could do is select some of our favorite remixes from “The Drugs Are In Control” Remix album and hopefully bring them in your attention so check them out below and lose control!
Hell-o all and here we are with some more new releases and the dark, heavy electronic sounds we all here love and cherish. As some of you might have noticed we haven’t been able to keep our blogging as consistent throughout the summer but we are slowly and steadily getting back on track so you should be expecting a loud winter ahead. Besides, when there are new releases as good as Flesh’s “Black Walk” EP which is available as a free download (as well as the other releases we have for you today) we feel obliged to put some time into checking them out and so should you. The 4 originals that combine dark atmosphere, very interesting vocal choices and a lot of character as well as the 2 remixes by Da Octopusss and Horskh make “Black Walk” EP a fine debut for the French duo and we will definitely be waiting to hear more from them!
I´ll close the day with track that is actually available for quite some months already, but since i didn´t blog for a while i just found this outstanding remix recently, and being madly in love with this killer remix from the first listen on i decided to pick this one for a belated “remix of the day”! It´s the Ravolution remix of “Beer, Butts & Boobs” by Un4Get feat Partysmartie, being featured alongside the original and four further remixes by Sunko, Lo-Fi Bitches, The Unique Yagark and Dizelkraft on the same-titled free EP, that has been given through Shax Trax. A great EP overall, don´t get me wrong, but this remix by Ravolution stood out in such ways that i just had to feature it solely and devote the attention it deserves imo! The driving pace, amazing flow and beloved roughness make this one such a great banger and even greater track to close the day with imo – so turn it up, get blown away, grab this goody and have a banging evening!!!
Switching to the next hard electro tune, this one´s way darker and more intimidating than the one of my previous post though and being delivered by a reliable source when it comes to skilful trash – it´s the latest track by the French duo The SlutGarden, fittingly named “Horror Machine“! Compared to their other stuff i have the feeling they slowed their oblique- and “trashiness” a bit down, but replaced that previous weird touch with more obscure and deeper bass, maybe less crazy but all the more pushing and hypnotizing. Conclusively i can say that “Horror Machine” is certainly another great and also sinister track that will satisfy everyone who´s already familiar with The SlutGarden´s sound and surely also convince every trash lover who isn´t yet, so check it out right now and grab your copy as well!!!
As from now i can already promise there will be exclusively freebies coming, therefore let´s continue with the next goody and another, but also the last dose fresh blood of today´s blogging. So here´s another name to be featured for the first time in our unholy halls – say hell-o to Digital Toys, a one man project based in Lübeck/Germany! This track and freebie named “Dayum” has kindly been provided by Audiophile Live, which made me also stumble upon this track and the previously to me unknown Digital Toys. Expect a sharp and crazy tune with bouncing beats and pushing fat bass, that will surely put every dancefloor in motion – play it loud and don´t forget to grab your copy!!!
I´ll go on with some way more familiar names and four great remixes by Liberator, Laforcah, Justrock and GÖR FLSH, who all got their hands dirty on Belzebass´ latest EP “Welcome To Hell“! Since they all came up with their remixes around the same time one can strongly assume these tracks were supposed to be an official remixes EP, something seems to have gone wrong with that though -but however that be- the rejoicing third are you, getting three of these four bombs now for free! Justrock and GÖR FLSH remixed the name giver “Welcome To Hell” (sadly only the GÖR FLSH remix is a freebie), Liberator delivered “Black In Back” (grab it here!) and Laforcah took task on “Methemetik” (also free DL!). A great and badass bundle of hard hitting and heavy remixes and each remix gives its remarkable and distinct main points for sure, so give´em all a loud listen and grab everything you get your hands on!!!
