Massive Week for Quality Electronic Dance Music (Our Top 5 Picks)

  • Savant's 8th album in two years. This electro-symphony is an ode to everything that Savant has experienced that has led him to this moment. From his musical inspiration to his experiences on the dance floor. Get ready to look into the eye of the Orakel.
  • Joe Ford is one of the hottest names in bass music right now and the majority of the population doesn’t even know it yet. After his last successful release this year, “The Mission” EP, it comes to no surprise that he has yet again dominated with his “Culture” EP. Joe Ford kicks off this fresh EP with the title track “Culture”. This song is a behemoth, it is like Joe Ford thought to himself “Build up? Nah, I’m going to rape my fans in the face with my opening track on this release”. The waves of bass on this drop are ridiculous, I feel like my ears are being beaten to death by the lightsaber mach 1. “Distilled” tones the EP down a little… just a little. The track brings in the ever growing neuro-hop styling, bouncing you through some great kicks with the addition of that lovely flavor of reese-bass. As a gamer, this is the kind of track I’d want to be blasting my through hordes of noobs with. I can see “Immobilise” being the theme of a fast traveling Spaceship being chased by another which is firing upon it, weaving in and out of asteroids with the occasional collision. If Michael Bay’s taste in music was worth anyone’s time, he would consider “Immobilise” for a space-flight scene in the next “Transformers” movie. Now, imagine a universe where Lex Luther kills Superman, Cell obliterates the Saiyans, and the Avengers perish at the hands of Ultron. Unopposed, “Villain” would be the track played as these cocky evil doers decimated our planet. If villains actually won, this song would be perfect, but considering they never do, we will just have to sit back and bump out to this badass tune with our imaginations. Last, but not least we see the return of Asa on yet another EP ender with Inspected. “Real Talk” isn’t the kind of track we have been seeing throughout Joe Ford’s EP, it is the end of the story we have been listening to. “Culture” started us with the intense game changer that set the premise, “Distilled” the attempted fight through the initial bass threat, “Immobilise” the fight to the death, and “Villain” the defeat and utter destruction of what is left. Last, is the calm after the storm, with those left alive wondering what else is to come, the “Real Talk”. This is one of the best works I have heard all year, Joe Ford just set the bar.

  • it just doesn’t get any better than the absolutely mental collaborations of Au5 & Fractal. Monstercat officially released their first collaborative EP last week and these immensely talented producers have completely enveloped the EDM universe with their paralyzing sound. The Secret Weapon EP consists of four tracks total, with genres ranging anywhere from dubstep, to drumstep, and even electro and progressive house, it’s an exhilarating earful for the everyday EDM addict! “Blue” and “Secret Weapon” cascade over your body like a waterfall of bone-chilling bass. At the other end of the spectrum, “Dreaming” and “Smoke” take your ears on joyful journeys through house music paradise. On their own, these guys are skilled producers, but together, they instantly become the most formidable force that EDM has to offer. Au5 & Fractal are second to none!
  • The dynamic UK bass duo Astronaut made their debut on Monstercat this week with a re-release of their hit song “Apollo,” along with remixes from Dodge & Fuski, SLDGHMR, Barely Alive, DKS and The Brig. The original, which features an infectious melody, strong male vocals, and glitchy basslines intertwined with epic melodic vocal chops, is one of the best tunes I’ve heard all year! I can’t commend Astronaut enough for managing to find the perfect balance between dirty electro bass and other more melodic aspects of the track, which is something that a lot of other producers in the bass music scene struggle with. However, if you’re looking for something a little more aggressive (I always am), then Barely Alive‘s remix is definitely the one for you! This time around, the Massachusetts based duo went with more of a moombahcore feel, something we haven’t really seen much of from them before and they pulled it off fantastically. This masterfully crafted remix has anything and everything you could ever want in a bass music banger: epic drop, catchy synths, heavy, yet melodic basslines, wicked sound design – you name it, Barely Alive did it and better than most. This remix is easily the best of the bunch; that’s not to say the others aren’t good, in fact they’re all pretty great, but Barely Alive‘s is definitely a cut above the rest! Some of my other favorites ones we’re Dodge & Fuski‘s funky-fresh glitch-hop remix as well as The Brig‘s, which puts a much heavier electro spin on the original. Which remix is your favorite?

Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, invited producers from a wide stylistic spectrum to remix the tracks from his latest album. Derek produced "A Color Map of the Sun" with no intention of having it be an album of dance floor bangers but rather a collection of music that can be enjoyed anyplace, anytime, all the time.   These remixes are other artists' interpretations of his compositions and self made vinyl samples. The tracks are mostly intended to be hard hitting but they are also just very different.Savant's 8th album in two years.

Cheshire – ‘Get Down’ (Staunch Remix) Out next week [Preview]

Monday the 16th Staunch are back with another chart smasher, this time a remix of Cheshire’s funky number ‘Get Down’ Preview here!

More info on Staunch:

Staunch was formed in 2011 by Shadow FX’s James Hayes and Algernon Renton (Positive Thought, Mustard Tiger), the project was aptly named STAUNCH; a bass heavy, funk laden mid-tempo breaks/ glitch hop project. Both artists stemming from progressive trance backgrounds and influenced by the Australian outdoor music scene’s shift toward glitch, Staunch have been forging a fresh, intricate and unique style.

Since they released their self titled EP in 2011 through Hopskotch Records, Staunch have been defining their place in the Glitch hop scene. Following the recent and very successful release with Adapted Records, the “Thurstin’ Beaver” EP has shot straight up the Beatport charts into the Top 10 overall sellers next to the big name electronic acts such as Far Too Loud, Daft Punk and Knife Party.

Having played at all Australia’s major festivals (Rainbow Serpent, Eclipse Festival, Maitreya, Bushweek etc) alongside icons such as Opiuo, Spoonbill and Tipper, and set to play Burning Man and Symbiosis during their debut USA tour later this year.

Based in Melbourne, STAUNCH are fast becoming a household name amongst the global glitch hop scene.

Most people will be familiar with their remix of Dr Dre’s “The Next Episode”. Check it out HERE!
