Been a while since we had an all out Drum & Bass release that we really enjoyed throughout to write about but when a new Blackout Music single is waiting in your inbox that has to be a good sign. Besides, it’s no secret and everyone who’s been following the blog for a while now should already know we’ve always enjoyed most music coming by the Netherlands based heavyhitter label, even more so when it comes from the label bosses Black Sun Empire. And as interesting and exciting it is to finally have some new music by the trio to writte about, things get even better when you realise that their new single features also Noisia
As some of you might already know Noisia have a new album titled “Outer Edges” coming out in September and of course all fans of heavy bass music, regardless what their favorite sub-genre is, should be looking forward to this one with much excitement. What you might not be aware of yet though is that the music video for the track “Collider” was out today and the trio is bringing out the heavy guns with it. A great track which trancends genres so don’t expect us to even try sticking a label to it accompanied by a nice video and for those who enjoy a mind twisting element of weirdness in their videos you’ll be getting some of that too with “Collider”. Which of course is nothing new for Noisia (we might even say it’s not weird enough comparing to some of their past videos). Nothing else to be added here really as the music of Noisia speaks for itself, so just enjoy “Collider” and stay tuned for the album.
Muzzy‘s “F Minor Factory” almost slipped unnoticed through our radars somehow but our bass detection systems finally detected it and we’re quite happy they did. Released on Monstercat about a month ago, the UK artist’s new EP comes with 4 original tracks moving somewhere between Electronica, Dubstep and Drum & Bass. A well thought of, nicely flowing release combining Drum & Bass rhythms with more melodic parts, EDM-ish hooks and even powerfull guitar fueled ragers, “F Minor Factory” can get you off your ass and right into the pit/dancefloor while at the same time it can suck you in with its more atmospheric parts. Definitely a fun to listen to and well produced EP with the highlight being “Play”, which minus some vocal parts would make an ultimate banger (but it still rocks anyway).
Next up we have something huge coming and well, how could it not be huge when it’s a compilation album celebrating three years of Blackout Music? Yeah, you read that right, a remix album consisting of Blackout artists remixing other Blackout artists and we could stop writting right at this point since you know this is going to be a face melt. And if you are not convinced just take a look at the track list, where some of the hottest Drum And Bass artists come together to remix each other (Black Sun Empire, Pythius, Telekinesis, Neonlight, State Of Mind and the list goes on). Out on June 17 this is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most highly anticipated releases of the year since all tracks are… well, to put it simply “fire”. Non-stop energy and bass which we guarantee will squeeze your brain and hit you in the face so hard that you won’t be able to stop moving. Should we even say “check it out”? We shouldn’t have to so just press play.
Weekend is coming and once again we thought we’d come up with a track selection for you to get the party started. From Indie Dance to Electronica and Electro to Drum & Bass here’s what’s on our playlist heading into the weekend and we certainly hope you enjoy the tracks too. Please note that some of the tracks are only available as previews on Soundcloud and one of them is actually only available on Spotify for the time being, so we recommend checking out the full playlist on Spotify rather on Soundcloud. Pick your poison and have a great weekend y’all!
