Something a little deeper and faster tonight by Alix Perez. Real name: Alix Depauw, a Belgium who is known for his additive Drum and Bass. He started young at age 14 and started producing at 17. The label Shogun Audio contains his album “1984″ in 2009. Critical acclaim on magazines such as Mixmag has propelled him to chart topping hights. Don’t be shy to bob your head to this massive debut Essential Mix. Shogun Audio was even nice enough to offer a download of the whole thing.
This week we are returning to the sultry dub and bass of the UK duo, Disclosure. There’s been a lot of talk about these dudes being on the forefront of this dance music wave. Let me tell you, its definitely fresh. Can’t wait to see what all the hype is about at Sasquatch!
Well your dirty little secret is out… Skrillex wins 3 Grammys, the Scene explodes, Paris Hilton “becomes” a dj… full stop.
We all saw it coming. The unique and original sound of underground dance music has become a playing field for shitty producers, hype machines and marketers. The not so hipster genre, has lost all credibility as it opened its gates to the masses and let itself be impaled by the raging, looking-to-find-something-fresh-to-copy member of the mainstream. If before you could be a hipster and listen to dance music, now you can’t. But I had such a good time dancing to that upbeat music instead of the regular r’n'r
Well boohoo. Who to blame, for making me move on to other genres to ‘stay ahead of the machine’? Paris Hilton. Well, at least she could be the latest scapegoat..
Ok ok. I think ths article is going too far with some statements, but thats wat you get out of an uneducated bias.
On a lighter note here is some elders reacting to Skrillex. (best part at 4:00)
ok kids, so I think i need to let you know that you have to let others pick ur music once in awhile. Especially if you are to preoccupied w/ setting up that new years kiss or jus plain old partying. So the coolest and easiest way to do so is just go to 8-tracks, then simply pick any mix that looks like the party is in the mood for, and hit play.
love this website.
enjoy the celebrations!
happy new year to everyone, hope it brings exciting and forward-moving events in your lives!
Today’s music is inspired by yesterday’s music, and will be inspiring tomorrow’s. But what if you made yesterdays music? I’m talking about artists who go through a profound change in musical output, but only after mastering the first one. They don’t just learn the history of some genre. They have a carnal knowledge and experience of it which they use to build a platform and launch something new and exciting. Some of my favorite and most successful artists – Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT – all have filthy, rebellious, punk-rock influences which seep through into their music. So its at moments like these, you need to take a step back and say, WHERES THE BLOODY KNIFE PARTY?
Knife Party is to Pendulum what MSTRKRFT is to DFA1979. Its a side project by Rob Swire and fellow pendulmate Gareth McGrillen that takes the raw energy of their DnB/rock roots, and sends it through an evil electronic disco machine. If you have ever been to a Pendulum concert, you know its one of the most insane mosh pits of your life. Now turn down the drum and turn up the bass, crank out some massive electro, dubstep and moombahcore tunes, and you’ve got yourselves the next level of shit-losing dance music.
They have done some huge remixes this summer for the likes of Nero, SHM, and even new guy: Porter Robinson. Along with some neck breaking original production, they also collaborated with electro dubmaster Skrillex for a wobbly moombahton single Zoology. Its clear to me they have been bottling up all the excess electo that couldnt make it into Pendulums albums because its all coming out in a furious assault on the dance floor.
