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!
It’s been a while since I posted anything by Mantis here (even before the much needed break I took from blogging) but the Atlanta boys are finally back as they had a new EP out about a month ago. Truth be told I find myself being very picky and generally speaking not impressed by most Dubstep that goes around these days as it all seems to boil down to high standard productions (nevermind the whole presets/samples argument) but less and less originality and well, feeling. This doesn’t seem to be the case with Mantis‘ “Avidity” though as the boys didn’t hesitate to go hard, like they always did anyway since the beginning. The nice mix of Drum & Bass and heavy Dubstep (you might even wanna call it Metalstep or Deathstep if you’re into that sort of thing) and thankfully the absence of the classic Hybrid Trap track, “Back Again” comes as close to Hybrid Trap you’ll listen from Mantis on this EP (and that isn’t close enough), certainly earned “Avidity” quite a few extra points in my book. Add the well thought of track order which gives a nice flow and album feel instead of a “random tracks placed on the same release” feel and here we have it. A Dubstep release that isn’t as predictable as most Dubstep releases going around nowadays and definitely worth checking out.
Straight out of the oven and right into your speakers, here comes Spor (Feed Me’s Drum N Bass alter ego) with some fresh tunage, out on his own imprint Sotto Voce Records last Friday. And what better to start your Monday and new week than some much needed energy boost to get you going after the weekend? Available through Bittorent (as well as on pretty much every other platform) “Black Eyed” comes with 5 original tracks, a couple of them being collaborations – one with Icicle & Linguistics and one featuring Phace. For those of you familiar with Spor‘s previous work you should already have a pretty good idea what to expect from his new EP, which is nothing else than some deep (and occassionaly dark) Drum N Bass/Neuro.
