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 Continue reading »

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. Continue reading »

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!

The Telekinisis new EP is coming on Black Sun Empire‘s very own Blackout Music on March 8th and the first tracks from the 5 track EP have gone public on Soundcloud, giving us a first taste of what the Slovenian duo’s new EP will sound like. And let us tell you that juddging by the two tracks we have heard already “Fight Club” EP is one to look forward to,especially  if you like super energised, high octane Drum & Bass. Classic “blackout” sound, production standard and overall quality once more by the Netherlands based label. Telekinetics and fans of blackness rejoice! Continue reading »

Dope DODFor some of you it might be old news (or even ancient history) but with the Dope D.O.D. new “The Ugly” EP coming up and going already on presale on the trio’s online store we thought it could be of interest to some you bassheads to know that Black Sun Empire have also contributed in Dope D.O.D.‘s new release. Yes, you read that right, the Drum & Bass heavyweight trio is responsible for the deep, dark and heavy production of “Boiling Point” and if that’s not a promising combination of names then we don’t know what is. Of course don’t expect any classic Black Sun Empire Drum & Bass madness on “Boiling Point” but rather a Dope D.O.D. track with a Black Sun Empire certificate of bass. Check out the track and let’s hope for more coming by these two toghether in the future and why not maybe even follow in the footspteps of I Am Legion with a more extensive and ongoing collaboration?
