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!
For those of you who checked out or even better enjoyed Against Humanity‘s “New World Order” EP which was released on THU Records last December, you will be definitely glad to know that the “New World Order” Remixes EP is finally available for streaming, including 5 remixes by Troublegum, Brawler, WiseLabs (ex-FetOo), Synapse (ex-Monkey Freakz) and Arkasia. All pretty much artists that those of you following this space for a longer time should be familiar with and recognise despite the new artist names. A remixes EP which, just like the original release did too, follows a mix of hard/trashy Electro sound with elements of Dubstep/Drumstep. A recipe that has definitely worked out well for the French/Egyptian duo in the past no doubt and definitely seems to be working for this “Remixes” EP too, although while listening throughout the EP as a whole at points we felt like quality and overall release dynamics/flow were sacrificed on the altar of fitting more remixes and artists on the same release. Still a nice EP though with Troublegum, Brawler and Synapse being our favorite remixes. Check it out!
Hell-o and a great week to all. The weekend might unfortunatelly be over but then again it always helps when having some good new music to listen and write about at the beginning of the new week, which certainly seems to be the case today with Habstrakt. His “Cool Cats Never Die” Pt.I EP was out today on Never Say Die and well, to make it as clear as we possibly can, this is some really great Dubstep. The EP includes two original tracks titled “Hello” and “Habby9000″, with both sounding equally great in terms of production, sound design and overall feel and flow. Powerful and bassed up enough to shake the earth beneath your feet, this is some of the finest Dubstep we’ve heard lately and definitely one we would recommend you to check out.
For those of you who enjoy your Drum & Bass big bad and well, black, we have an upcoming release to start the day with which should excite your ears just like it did ours. 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!
Just a few days ago the So French Records “Winter Time” Vol.02 Compilation was released by French label, including 14 original tracks altogether. A mix of Nu Disco, Electro Rock and well, French Touch with some artists we’ve known and liked for a while now, as well as some new ones. Listening to the whole release a few times and trying to make up our minds about it, we can definitely say that there are some very good tracks on it, which we have picked to feature here today. One of the things we didn’t like as much is the abundance of Nu Disco and “funky”tracks, which seemed to take over the overall release more than we would have personally liked as it seems to have left less room for more power and energy which we thought is missing a bit from the particular compilation. The good thing though is that the few tracks that are moving to a “harder” direction out of “Winter Time” Vol.02 really stood out as they made a significance difference to the release’s overall feel and flow.
