Gryffin Releases “Remember” Ft. ZOHARA


Anything from Gyffin is always welcome. This man has indeed had a stellar 2018.

Gryffin is having a monster 2018! With festival performances across the country under his belt (Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, EZoo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, ETC!!!) and dropping non stop originals and remixes, not to mention fire remix packages, Gryffin can do no wrong.

Today, the producer drops another chilling track with awesome, stand out vocals. Following up his release with Elley Duhe, “Tie Me Down“, this release is honestly pretty generic. But there’s a method to the pop-machine madness, and I’m sure this will gain just as much traction as “Tie Me Down” did. Enjoy Gryffin’s newest above.

[Deep House/Future House:] Malaa – We Get Crunk


[Deep House:] Malaa – We Get Crunk

French Bass and Future House producer Malaa does it again with “We Get Crunk.” G-House samples and vibes meld well with a more deep/tech-house feel or vibe making a heavy track that mixes well as a great transitory tune into the next floor filler.

Malaa and his Confession label mate Tchami have been on fire recently releasing new music and touring all around the US and Europe.

Listen to the track on Spotify or other music services here.

Be sure to check out more from the Confession label on their YouTube page.

[Deep House:] Piem – Flip the Tempo


[Deep House/Tech House:] Piem – Flip the Tempo

Sweat hard ’til the dancefloor, shakin’ the body around
Get down to the sound prevailin’

Piem’s “Flip the Tempo” will have you or patrons currently on the dancefloor shaking and gettin’ down to the sound, just as the song suggests. Heavy house vibes, a repeating background synth and “punchy beats with chubby bass” create a standout house track that combines the origins of house with current bass music for a truly enjoyable track. Don’t miss it!

Check out more great house from the Netherlands music group, Armada Subjekt on their Youtube channel.

[Dark House/Future House:] Rootkit – Take A Shot


[Dark House/Future House:] Take a Shot – Rootkit

Fresh from the Confession label’s Alchemy Vol. 3  is a new song from Future House producer Rootkit. Track six on the album, “Take a Shot” combines heavy bass, and a dark atmospheric sound to create a future house track that exudes a full bodied, yet minimalist sound.

As the sampled voice in the background repeatedly commands “Take a Shot,” sounds of echoing synths and tribal sounding wails combine to creating a very industrial feel.

Preview the Alchemy Volume III EP here.

Also check out a previously blogged about remix of fellow label mate Tchami’s “World To Me” where Rootkit also adds a heavy atmospheric sound to the original track.

[Chill House:] Dido – Thank You (Alternative Kasual Remix)


[Chill House Music:] Dido – Thank You (Alternative Kasual Remix)

One of the greatest things about electronic dance music is that no matter how old, reused, well-known, done 1000 different ways any one song is, a remix can instantly make it brand new again.

Alternative Kasual’s remix IS no exception putting a refreshing spin on the Dido classic that is neither too mellow (and boring) and not too hyped either (this ain’t some headbanging bass banger, either thankfully).

This remix adds ambient future house vibes and melodies alongside a satisfying BPM for dancing and just enough energy to not be overwhelming.

Remixes of early EDM classics and pop culture hits from the 90s and 2000s are extremely popular and have seen a resurgence in the age of some songs having more than 100 remixes or more. Recent comebacks and originals being played at festivals by artists from Kaskade to Zedd, to Kygo and more include:

  • One More Time – Daft Punk
  • Next Episode – Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg
  • Blue (Da Ba Dee) – Eiffel 65
  • Kernkraft 400 (Stadium Chant Remix) – Zombie Nation
  • Better Off Alone – Alice Deejay

[Alternative EDM:] Grasscut – Pieces // Underground EDM, indie & rap from [adult swim]


[Alternative EDM:] Grasscut – Pieces

 

Grasscut’s “Pieces” is a delightfully unique offering in the electronic genre-sphere. Fresh from the Ninja Tune label, this “alternative electronic” track has elements of dance-pop collide with alternative rock/indie music that is reminiscent of bands like Death Cab for Cutie or Velveteen.

Beginning with sultry, subdued warped vocals, the song quickly begins an entrancing xylophone-like synth along bass and a steady beat. The accompanying video uses what looks like tripped out stock footage, in vintage 480p, adding to that underground/indie feel.

Appearing in an [adult swim] bump, the intermissions between their own shows and commercials, the network often promotes underground rap, hip-hop and electronic music. The network and Ninja Tune label are also closely associated with Big Dada records, Brainfeeder (Flying Lotus’ record label), and WARP records.
It is partly thanks to [adult swim], the network designed for 18-34 year olds, that eclectic acts such as Flying Lotus and Tycho and many more underground hip-hop acts (through label Definitive Jux) have been discovered, such as Aesop Rock, Cage, Despot, El-P, Murs, RJ-D2, and more received more widespread recognition.

The Ninja Tune and WARP records labels were radio stations in Square Enix’s Hong-Kong “GTA” video game, “Sleeping Dogs.” Within the game, playing the station would bring up underground EDM and ambient hits like Bonobo’s “Kiara,” artists like Stateless, Coldcut, UK rap/grime act Two Fingers, Emika & Lorn. It’s sister station “WARP records” played jams from artists such as Rustie, Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke. Truly revolutionary for it’s time (Sleeping Dogs was released in 2012).
