Hell-o all and after an extended silence from our side here’s a pretty quick and evil comeback and a multi-purpose post in a sense since we have a killer new track and release and an official video for it, all in one. Hijack Da Bass shouldn’t really need any inrtoduction to those of you following the blog and hard Electro scene in general. With 3 official EPs under their belt and countless remixes for Zardonic, Lock N Bounce, Laforcah and Vegamoore (just to mention a few) the duo from Portugal has been delivering their highly energised Electro for a while and now they are back with a new EP. Out on JST Records last week, their EP titels “Demon Club” comes with 2 originals as well as 3 remixes by Imagin8, The Silent H and Bombastard who all added their personal touch to the 2 originals. As for the originals, Hijack Da Bass are taking their sound to the next level while at the same time keeping their very characteristic trademark sound. And in cas that’s not enough “Demon Club” comes with an official video too. Dark, demonic (obviously) and cool, the video was done to pay homage to horror themes the duo has always enjoyed and as an effort to explore the psychology of horror. So, enough words, time to let the audio and visual work of Hijack Da Bass speak for itself so check out the video below and of course “Demon Club” EP here.
Last new release of the day and time to get back to some regular and very loved artists on Metalectro with this one. Dizkodeath is back with the 3rd single of his upcoming LP “Raw” and once again the Germany based artist delivers some seriously impressive and good tunage. “Vendetta” is the title of his new single that was released on Jet Set Trash yesterday and this one is for all those nostalgic of the good old hard Electro days. A great mix of 80′s elements, atmospheric and ravey hard Electro and heavily distorted French Electro, Dizkodeath delivers another quality single. 3 remixes alongside the original by M.A.D.E.S, Krftkds and Freak Slaughter and it’s only fair to say that all 3 remixers have done some impressive work. Overall another great single by Dizkodeath and with the previous 2 singles being also as good as they were, his LP “Raw” is becoming one highly anticipated release no doubt. Check out “Vendetta” by all means!
Here’s some more fresh blood and the second new release of they day, coming from the duo Bassreketen on No Sense Of Place Records and you better hold on tight because it packs some heavy bass, with 2 originals and an impressive remixer line up consisting of aUtOdiDakT, FetOo and You Killing Me. And with such remixers you know you can’t go wrong, as is the case with “Signal” EP. To be honest the 2 originals didn’t impress us but can’t say the same about the remixes with all 3 remixers adding their signature sound and personal touch to the release. 2 very big remixes by aUtOdiDakT and You Killing Me in particular we have to say who took out the big bass cannons for this one so check it out!
Hell-o all and here we are ready for a mid-week serious bass throwdown so stay tuned because things are about to get heavy with some nice new releases. Starting with some fresh blood today and Iron Court‘s EP “Blacksmith” which was released on My Techno Weighs A Ton Records a week ago. 3 heavy techno originals with thie fair share of Electro elements and a nice EP by the Italian producer who is certainly setting high enough standards as for what to expect by him in the future. Check out Iron Court and his debut “Blacksmith” EP below if you’re looking for some dark stuff to start your Wednesday bass adventure with and don’t go anywhere because we’re only getting started.
Here’s a new track and remix by Mark Instinct, out about a week ago on Firepower Records on Twofold‘s “Skyfire” Remixes EP. The EP features also a VIP version of the original, as well as remixes by Havok Roth, AlexAnder & Dr. Ozi and Avien although this was our favorite remix, therefore we thought it deserves a “remix of the day” post. Top notch production by Canadian producer Mark Instinct who sticks to what he knows best, which is producing some top class Drum N Bass. Not a banger or even a hard track by our standards really but a melodic vocal driven remix, which comes in perfect timing for the summer too and feels like a strong contender to be on many “summer-time playlists”. Here’s Mark Instinct remix of “Skyfire”, check it out!
Next comes a preview of an upcoming release and a single by Baseface that drops on May 13th through Freakz Me Out. A nice guitar fueled and vocal driven original that certainly sits well with our tastes and pleases our eardrums. Obvious rock and not only influences by Moscow, Russia, EDM producer Gordy and british multi-instrumentalist, ex-Prodigy drummer Kieron Pepper who together they have formed Baseface and definitely a nice track and preview that serves as a great appetiser but has left me hungry and curious to hear more by the duo. Until tomorrow though that the full track will become available this all we’re going to get from Baseface as far as new tracks go so check out the preview and stay tuned if hungry for more.
Hell-o all and here we are again, starting another week with some bass bombs and the return of an artist who hasn’t been mentioned here for some time, yet he’s no stranger to this blog. The Frenchman K12 is back with a new EP, out on Funkatech last week. “Daddy’s Groove” is the title of the EP which contains 4 originals and well, lots of groove. A fine mix of Drum N Bass, Glitch Hop and Electro House with top production and big sound is what you’re going to get by K12 and it’s no big surprise either for those familiar with the French artist’s previous work. Definitely a release to check out so here’s “Daddy’s Groove” and i don’t know about your daddy or rest of the family but we certainly enjoyed it. Check it out!
The infamous and notorious Metalectro Compilation is back with its 4th volume, titled “Demons Roar”. After setting a high standard with Vol.02 and 03 (reaching at #22 and #11 of the Beatport Top 100 Electro House Releases chart) this time the Metalectro team invited some handpicked vocalists to contribute to “Demons Roar”. From Metalstep and Dubstep to Death Electro, Glitch Hop and almost everything in between, Metalectro Vol.04 will knock you off your feet from the very first seconds and opening lyric “destroy” to the very last and closing lyric “attack”. This is no Festival EDM but electronic music to make you go wild and drive you out of your mind, check at your own risk!
Continuing with another brand new and fresh release and a very nice EP by Liberator. “The Sound Of Liberation” is the 2nd EP release by the Italian artist and this time he has chosen as his musical home the another UK based label, Jet Set Trash. Liberator‘s new EP includes 5 original tracks plus 2 remixes, 1 official remix by Italian duo Pelussje and 1 free remix by the Frenchman Mr Batou. Great flow, dark moods and themes and the overall nice production make the 5 orignals fun to listen to no doubt. A mix of Electro House/Complextro structures with a trashy edge and Dubstep/Acid/Techno elements is what you can expect by Liberator who definitely seems to be taking his music to the next level since his debut EP and developing his musical identiy, while the 2 remixes are adding a nice variety to the EP too. A pure club/dance remix by Pelussje and a heavy Dubstep remix by Mr Batou come (available fro free) come to wrap this EP up and we have definitely enjoyed this one a lot so make sure you check it out!
Hell-o all and here we are with some more fresh bass for you ears and you can rest assured that we have plenty of it coming on today right from the start as we will be kicking the day off with a new single by the super talented Boston (USA) based Imagin8. The new single by the 18 yo and very pomising Imagin8 was out about 1 month ago on Most Addictive Records that obviously got addicted to Imagin8‘s big bass and sound desing, as we did too since we discovered him. The new single is titled “Battle On The Hill” and Imagin8 delivers once again what we all got to love from him on his debut EP “Pure Justice”, which is no other than fat bass, dark atmospheric parts, top production and maturity way beyond his age. Check out “Battle On The Hill” and Imagin8 in general if you haven’t yet because if there is one thing you can be certain of is that more greatness is going to follow him.
