Metalectro http://www.metalectro-music.com This Is Metalectro! Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:08:01 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.1 Review: Davip “Eliminator” EP http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/17/review-davip-eliminator-ep/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/17/review-davip-eliminator-ep/#comments Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:08:01 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30512 [...]]]> Sticking to some more super energised and badass Drum N Bass sounds, this time coming from Russia based artist Davip who has never been featured here before (so lets give him a warm or even hot as hell welcome) and Uplink Audio. “Eliminator” EP was out a week ago including four original tracks, with the opening and EP same titled track being a collaboration with label boss Downlink and setting the tone for what’s to follow in the three remaining EP tracks perfectly well with its fat moving bassline and overall great feel and production. Definitely an EP to check out if you’re into this sort of sound and one we enjoyed quite a bit here on Metalectro so if you trust our eardrums do check it out by all means.

Preview: Misanthrop “I Need More” EP http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/15/preview-misanthrop-i-need-more-ep/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/15/preview-misanthrop-i-need-more-ep/#comments Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:08:59 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30508 [...]]]> Hell-o to all bassheads and we’re back bringing you some dark, heavy, nasty and lovely bass – just the way we love it here on Metalectro and what better way to get things started than a preview of the new Misanthrop (aka Neosignal) EP “I Need More”? The EP will be out on Blackout Music NL (Black Sun Empire‘s imprint) on April 19th. Fortunatelly for all of us a couple of full tracks from it have already been made publicly available for streaming on the artist and label Soundcloud pages and it’s fair to say that both sound killer and definitely leave us wanting and needing more. So if you’re looking for some badass and pretty damn great Drum N Bass/Neuro look no further, make sure to check out this EP preview and two tracks from Misanthrop‘s “I Need More” EP and mark April 19th on your calendars for the release!

Review: Phace “Shape The Random” LP http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/03/review-phace-shape-the-random-lp/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/03/review-phace-shape-the-random-lp/#comments Fri, 03 Apr 2015 16:04:18 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30494 [...]]]> Going on with some nice Drum N Bass coming from Phace with the German producer’s new LP, released on Neosignal Recordings a bit over a couple of weeks ago. 14 original tracks moving to the Drum N Bass direction and if you’re fans of the particular sound and style then you’re definitely going to enjoy this one. Some darker, some weirder and some more straight forward, all tracks stay loyal pretty much to the heavier Drum N Bass we’ve come to know and like by Phace and even though at parts we felt the album could have done with a couple of tracks that would add a bit more diversity and variety by straying a bit off of the Drum N Bass sound, we have to say that “Shape The Random” is an album we enjoyed quite a bit and we hope you will too. Here’s a fairly long and pretty extensive preview of the LP, check it out!

Review: F.O.O.L – Knight http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/03/review-f-o-o-l-knight/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/04/03/review-f-o-o-l-knight/#comments Fri, 03 Apr 2015 15:02:16 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30502 [...]]]> April started off in a great way in terms of new music and for those of you not aware of it yet F.O.O.L‘s new EP titled “Knight”, out on Monstercat April 20th,  is already available for pre-sale and you can now also stream the opening and EP same-titled track. “Knight” EP, which will include 4 original tracks is definitely one to look forward to, as is usually the case with the Swedish artist and we definitely have been looking forward to it since the first teasers made their appearence on the artist’s social media. And the opening track comes to confirm that this will be one more classic F.O.O.L piece of Electro greatness, with all those trademark and characteristic parts, sounds and melodies we are used to listen from F.O.O.L over tha last few years. Check out “Knight”, pre-order your copy if you can’t wait until the 20th of April and stay tuned for the full release!

Bass In Your Face: 5 Tracks To Melt Your Face http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/31/bass-in-your-face-mar15/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/31/bass-in-your-face-mar15/#comments Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:51:13 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30486 [...]]]> March has been one of those months that have been very kind to us with too many great tracks and releases coming by a great deal of artists/labels and since posting them all one by one would seem almost impossible we have decided to pick some of our favorite bass monsters released during the month in a 5 track selection that will melt your face with the massive drops and huge badass sound it includes. So fasten your seatbelts and lets get nasty, starting with Downlink & Twofold‘s collaboration original titled “Darkside”, out on Uplink Audio a couple of weeks ago. Some machine gun bass and filthy Dubstep to open the day with and if this one doesn’t melt your face it will certainly give you bloody eardrums and soften you up for our next track pick so check it out and keep reading/listening.

Second track in today’s selection is another fresh collaboration and a brand new release by Astronaut & Barely Alive, released just yesterday on Disciple Recordings. Taken from the Astronaut & Barely Alive “Rivals” EP which includes four collaboeration original tracks between the two artists, “Some Kind Of Monster” was the track that stood out (accoriging to our eardrums always) from the release. A Glitch Hop track that certainly has lots of power, nice groove and of course very high production standards, as we’re used to listen by the two artists anyway. Definitely a great track and by far our favorite from the EP, which combines elements, sounds and styles of many subgenres with its heavy bass, chopped vocal samples and strings/orchestral parts coming together in perfect harmony to create a lovely monster. Don’t miss it!

Next comes a remix and a track by the first time blogged here Bad Catholics (if not mistaken), taken from the SLDGHMR “Grid Living” EP, out three weeks ago on Always Never. Don’t let the somewhat cheesy and maybe too melodic/edm-ish beginning and vocals fool you into thinking we’ve gone soft or that this is some kind of mistake and we meant to include another track in our selection and just wait for the first drop to take you by surprise and come hit you in the face. Definitely a hard, big sounding and heavy remix by the USA based duo Bad Catholics that adds a very much needed edge to the vocal driven and definitely softer and more melodic original and release overall. Check it out!

The next pick brings back on the blog our favorite lasers and it’s been a while since we posted anything by Lazer Lazer Lazer but then again you know that every time a new track (whether original or remix) by these lasers goes online it’s going to be a tight, massive sounding and hard hitting bass bomb and “Concussion” is no exception. For those of you who were lucky to hear the briefly made public Lazer Lazer Lazer remix on The Prodigy “Wild Frontier” which didn’t stay public for more than just a few hours it must have served as a great appetiser for some more laser music and thankfully here’s some more, with an original track too! No release plans or download links have been provided for “Concussion” for the time being so if you want it and streaming isn’t enough you’re going to have a keep an eye on the artist social media and Souncloud page for more news about any release. Until then though here’s “Concussion” so check it out and enjoy!

And because four huge sounding tracks are a great way to melt your face but five are an even greater one, here’s one more and the last one for today’s selection coming by an artist that doesn’t need introductions really if you’re into the heavy, raw, badass Dubstep sounds. Greece’s D-Jahsta is definitely a producer who has a great relationship with the nasty side of Dubstep for the last couple of years and if you like it nasty then you’re probably familiar and a fan of his already. His latest EP “Two Steps From Hell” is out on Firepower Records today and if you missed the premiere, teasers or previews of it until now please get a grip and check out the EP same titled track below. And in case you’re not sure what you can expect from D-Jahsta in this one, how does reducing the number of walls and generally speaking any standing structures/buildings around to almost zero sound?

Review: BAR9 & PhaseOne – Why They Need Us http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/30/review-bar9-phaseone-why-they-need-us/ http://www.metalectro-music.com/2015/03/30/review-bar9-phaseone-why-they-need-us/#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 18:20:31 +0000 http://www.metalectro-music.com/?p=30481 [...]]]> It’s been almost one month already since the release of BAR9 & Phase One‘s collaboration single “Why They Need Us” on Firepower Records and actually it’s been a while since we had any post from either artist or label here so lets do something about that right now. 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.
