For those of you who are into both melodic and hard hitting Dubstep but somehow and for whatever reason haven’t checked out “Why They Need Us” yet please stop whatever you’re doing for five minutes because you really need to check it out. The UK and Australlian based artists came together to deliver a tune which not only fits perfectly well with what we’re accustomed to hearing from Firepower Records and the specific artists but should also leave all fans and those familiar with the artists sound and style happy and satisfied to the max. Check it out!

Review: Far Too Loud “Cocktails Of Awesome” EP http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/30/review-far-too-loud-cocktails-of-awesome-ep/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/30/review-far-too-loud-cocktails-of-awesome-ep/#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 17:13:17 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30473 [...]]]> Going on with one more new release that those of you following artist social media closely must have no doubt been looking forward to since the first teasers and previews, we know we have at least! Far Too Loud‘s “Cocktails Of Awesome” EP is out on No Tomorrow Recordings since a week ago including 3 remixes of some Far Too Loud favorites by Michael White, Trumpdisco and 501 as well as a VIP mix of “Trailmixing” and boy (or girl – depending on your gender) aren’t these awesome indeed!? Starting with a huge remix by the lesser known but not entirely new to our ears Michael White who literally dropped a massive Electro House bomb full of energy with his remix of “Drop The Bomb”, this release sets high standards from the opening second and keeps them high right to the very last. Trumpdisco follows second with a more raw and bass heavy remix of “Light Sticks” and if you ever wondered what the result of Far Too Loud and Trumpdisco working together could sound like, here’s your answer right here. Last but not least come 501‘s Trap/Dubstep hybrid remix of “Doomsday Machine” to spice things up and add some variety to the release and of course the VIP mix of “Trailmixing” by Far Too Loud himself which comes to wrap up what is a killer release with lots of power and some high octane Drum N Bass.

Review: SBCR “SBCR & Friends” Vol. 1 http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/30/review-sbcr-sbcr-friends-vol-1/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/30/review-sbcr-sbcr-friends-vol-1/#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 16:03:44 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30468 [...]]]> After a much needed short break from blogging we’re back as of today and as expected when taking time off we have plenty of fresh new bassy electronic music coming since good music doesn’t wait. So time to catch up with what we’ve missed the last couple of weeks, starting with the release of the debut SBCR (Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots) EP released on Dim Mak a couple of weeks ago. 5 new original tracks, out of which 4 are collaborations with Razihel, Moon Bounce and Eliza Bee & His Majesty Andre plus “The Grid” which we have already posted and talked about before in a previous post. Overall a pretty enjoyable release and debut for the hard Electro scene legend Sir Bob, including tracks more reminiscent of The Bloody Beetroots older sound and some more “fresh” sounding ones and if anyhing he proves it doesn’t matter what name he’s releasing music under there is always a lot to look forward to in his new releases and sets the bar high right from the start for his SBCR project.

The Prodigy “Wall Of Death” + “Wild Frontier” (KillSonik Remix) http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/18/the-prodigy-wall-of-death-wild-frontier-killsonik-remix/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/18/the-prodigy-wall-of-death-wild-frontier-killsonik-remix/#comments Wed, 18 Mar 2015 18:27:05 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30462 [...]]]> It’s wasn’t very long ago when Liam Howlett said in an interview that The Prodigy new album will wipe the floor with dance DJs and as we’re getting closer to the official release date of “The Day Is My Enemy” (March 30th) and more tracks are becoming available to listen to the more we actually begin to understand and believe that statement to be true. Just a few days ago another original track from “The Day Is My Enemy” made its appearence on YouTube, titled “Wall Of Death” and well, lets just say that this is some kickass, rude and violent Electronic music with bad attitude, the sort we love here and have definitely been missing the last few years from the bigger “hard” Electronic music acts. And as if that wasn’t enough, the KillSonik remix of “Wild Frontier”, which was apparently co-written by KillSonik and The Prodigy has also made it’s public debut bringing back officially the UK based duo, who is hopefully are going to stay productive and more music will follow from them soon.

The lord of Swedish Death Electro is back and he brings some more of the beautiful darkness we are used to hearing by him with his new “Elcypz” EP. Two new classic sounding Owl Vision originals, titled “Eclypz” and “Zyborg” released through Comorbid Records that all fans of the Swedish artist and all those familiar with his sound should instantly fall in love with. Check out Owl Vision‘s new EP below and embrace its darkness!

Premiere: Celldweller – Good L_ck (Yo_’re F_cked) (Hecq Remix) http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/13/premiere-celldweller-good-l_ck-yo_re-f_cked-hecq-remix/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/13/premiere-celldweller-good-l_ck-yo_re-f_cked-hecq-remix/#comments Fri, 13 Mar 2015 19:03:26 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30452 [...]]]> CelldwellerCelldweller‘s new album “End of an Empire – Chapter 03: Dreams” is out today via his own imprint FiXT and of course Metalectro couldn’t be missing from the party, so we joined in by getting an exclusive track premiere for all you cellmates. The album comes with 18 in total tracks (originals and remixes) with some more known artists like Combichrist and some lesser known ones remixing tracks for the album. We got our hands on the remix Hecq did on “Good L_ck (Yo_’re F_cked)” which is one of our favorite remixes out of Celldweller‘s new album. A heavy and more to the Electronic side remix, as some of the other remixes felt like moving a bit more to the rock direction, which combines Neuro basses and deep sound design with some characteristic Celldweller sounding parts in a lovely and somewhat weird way. Definitely a remix we enjoyed quite a bit, so check it out as well as the rest of the album here!

Freebie: Savant – Killer http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/12/freebie-savant-killer/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/12/freebie-savant-killer/#comments Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:03:53 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30430 [...]]]> It’s pretty easy to lose track when it comes to Savant releasing albums and tracks one after the other since the frequency the Norwegian artist writes, produces and releases new music is often difficult to keep up with, unless you have a Savant only devoted blog. Nevertheless noone can complain about that though as Savant doesn’t get stingy to giving away free music too, like he did with his “Invasion” album which is available with a “name your price” option on the artist’s Bandcamp. Personally i am not the biggest fan of all the Savant releases and tracks since sometimes they are too “clever” for my taste. Listening through “Invasion” LP though i couldn’t pass “Killer” without a post as it’s a track that goes to a harder and bassier Electro direction (something we don’t hear often by him), with the complexity that comes usually on most Savant tracks not missing either. So, here’s “Killer” so check it out and go grab it here!

Review: Astronaut & Black Tiger Sex Machine “Rockers” EP http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/12/review-astronaut-black-tiger-sex-machine-rockers-ep/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/12/review-astronaut-black-tiger-sex-machine-rockers-ep/#comments Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:02:17 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30426 [...]]]> Not very long ago we posted a preview/work in progress of the back then still upcoming Astronaut & Black Tiger Sex Machine “Rockers” collaboration. Finally, now “Rockers” has been made available for purchase and streaming via Kannibalen Records and for those of you who were looking forward to this collaboration you now have a reason to rejoice. Of course as one would expect the highlight of the release is the EP main track “Rockers”, although we have to say that both tracks qualify as very good Electro House and we can guarantee that if that’s your kind of sound then you are most definitely going to love them. Maybe “Rockers” and “Bounce” are not the sort of tracks that will revolutionalise the Electro House sound or a release that will rock your socks off as much as the the title suggests (we leave you be the judges of that though) but it will absolutely get you bouncing and sweating on the dancefloor played at appropiate volumes and this we can be certain of.

Review: White Zoo “Yagar” EP http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/02/review-white-zoo-yagar-ep/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/02/review-white-zoo-yagar-ep/#comments Mon, 02 Mar 2015 19:42:22 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30413 [...]]]> Keeping the good new releases coming and here’s some tasty fresh blood too, coming by Germany based artist White Zoo with his new EP “Yagar”, out today on Audiophile Live. Some good hard Electro that should take the fans of the sound back to hard Electro good old days, or at the very least bring back some good old memories for those who still remember those days. “Yagar” EP comes with 4 original tracks, combining the harder Electro sound with orchestral and more melodic parts in a way that we don’t hear often nowadays and we haven’t heard coming by Audiophile Live in a while to be honest. Definitely a very good surprise by both artist and label and a release we enjoyed quite a bit right here. Check it out!
