[Post-Dubstep:] Adventure Club & Crankdat – Next Life (ft. Krewella)


Dubstep pioneers Adventure Club have teamed up with producer Crankdat and female songstress and DJ, Krewella for the energy filled track, Next Life. Elements of dubstep, future house and bass collide in this uplifting “post-dubstep” track with each artist bringing their unique flair to the mix. Opening with soft melodies that transition into air guitar like synths and layers of  sound makes for an interesting composition.

Krewella delivers magical vocals over Adventure Club’s one-of-a-kind soundscape; one that feels familiar but is also different enough from the dubstep that made them popular in the first place. The drop and the bassier elements of the track seem to be Crankdat’s doing, but I could be dissecting it wrong. Regardless, the trio deliver a powerful hit that successfully changes up a familiar format.

I’ll be waiting in the next life…

Robotaki’s ‘Anachronism’ EP releases via Foreign Family Collective


Toronto based DJ, Robotaki, released his Anachronism EP, Friday. The EP is a thoughtful, deep fusion of house, funk and very unique ambient vibes any fan of “different” EDM should check out. Released through ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, Robotaki’s sound here is deeply ambient, just like his label heads.

The opening track “Severance” combines melodic humming, downtempo vibes and rhythms and an IDM sound. By the end of the track, it completely flips, going from soft jazzy vocals to a glitchy snares and a hoppier sound adding a quick burst of energy.

The popular producer has remixed tracks from the likes of Daft Punk and Empire of the Sun and for good reason. The cuts “Meant to Be” and “Beaches” channel both those artists in their dreaminess and calming ambiance. This is beach music. Relaxed road trip music. The kind of stuff you’d want serenading the background of a peaceful lucid dream.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of Anachronism.

[Bass House/Dance:] ATRIP – Beat Like


[House/Bass:] Beat Like – ATRIP

Popular producer ATRIP has done it again with “Beat Like”, a house tune filled with bass, and eccentric yet coordinated aural madness. Familiar rhythm structures for the artist enjoy some bass house treatment while still retaining the zany sounds and samples that characterize ATRIP’s music. His songs are very Joyride-esque, you’d swear they were brothers. House vocal samples along with some trappy snares and distorted synths phase shift to a trap section in the latter half of the track.

Shufflers will love this one with it’s very snappy beat and easy to pick up rhythm.

[Bass House:] BROHUG releases Swag / Vamos – EP on Dim Mak Records


[Bass House/Big Room:] “Swag” and “Vamos” EP on Dim Mak Records

BROHUG has done it once again with some bass-laden tunes released just in time for the new year. Closing out 2018, is the “Swag / Vamos” EP release on Dim Mak Records. Both tunes are filled to the brim with bass and BROHUG’s signature sound.

“Swag” is energetic with a repeating female vocal that echoes after the drop. “Vamos” employs a deep voice repeating the title and filling the floor with heavy bass ambiance. It takes some inspiration from the big-room genre.

Stream both tracks on BROHUG’s Soundcloud.

[Bass House/Rap:] Kanye West & Lil Pump – I Love It (BROHUG Remix)


[Bass House/Rap:] I Love It (BROHUG Remix) – Kanye West & Lil’ Pump

Bass house gurus BROHUG have done it again with a massive remix of Kanye West and Lil’ Pump’s “I Love It.” The popular trio perfectly meld the sounds of Rap and G-House with their signature bass house sound. Loud, noisy, full of energy and made for going crazy to, by the first drop the track is a floor filler.

A slick interlude with funky basslines after the drop smoothly mixes with Lil’ Pump’s bars and more relaxed raps as compared to Kanye and the overall energy of the song. Right after, it’s back to another heavy drop this time accentuated by horns and industrial sounds. This remix certainly improves upon the original.
