• Welcome to the Jungle: XXYYXX – About You (Yheti Remix)

    February 28, 2014 Ben

    Our favorite mythical creature has taken XXYYXX‘s smooth sounds and lovingly molded them into a relaxed jungle excursion. Close your eyes and let the alternating breakbeats gallop around your cranium as you sink into the warmth of Yheti‘s embrace. The awesome slap bass solo takes this remix over the top though, Seinfeld would be proud of…

  • Mr Carmack Refixed Major Lazer – Aerosol Can and Everybody Got Crunk

    February 27, 2014 Ben

    You know only good things can happen when Mr Carmack touches Major Lazer‘s hype new tune. This refix is just mean, Mr Carmack toughened up the vocals and drums while throwing in a gritty synth to guide the hip hop histrionics. No word on release or anything, just the usual banger upload to have on…

  • Cashmere Cat- Wedding Bells EP Review

    February 17, 2014 Ben

    Cashmere Cat has built a remarkable following with his unique brand of bass music soundscapes: myriads of sounds and textures woven into evolving patterns, clattering under airy melodies and vocal hooks. His newest three song EP on Lucky Me is another lovely entry into his catalog of music. There are faults but they are overcome…

  • Trippy Turtle gets us Wet

    February 15, 2014 Ben

    Everyone’s favorite psychedelic reptile, Trippy Turtle has been killing the jersey club game while hiding behind a veil (shell?) of mystery. Characteristically slow to release tunes, Trippy Turtle has taunted us with another killer club tune for V-day. Wet has a lush opening full of sexy vocals and unexpected bass, followed by (a thankfully bed-squeak…

  • LAXX Interview – Delving Into The Weird

    February 13, 2014 Ben

    LAXX has just released his mental Step One EP on dubstep powerhouse Never Say Die Records. Somewhere between dubstep and trap, LAXX describes his sound as “twitch”,which perfectly describes the screw-faced convulsions that overcome the dancefloor when his tunes are dropped. I had the chance to pick LAXX’s brain recently regarding the method to his madness,…

  • SWAGU – Trophy

    February 12, 2014 Ben

    In anticipation of their upcoming sophomore EP as well an overhauled remix collection, SWAGU dropped this free single yesterday on their Soundcloud. Riding high on another Beyoncé sample (see ‘Like/Share‘), the silky and bubbly ‘Trophy’ is emblematic of the duo’s approach to infusing lighter melodic textures with rich bass, stiff leads and snappy percussion. The…

  • Mad Zach & G Jones – Spontaneosity (Preview)

    February 11, 2014 Mike Vincent

    Extremely forward thinking producers Mad Zach and G Jones are back at it again. The last time we had a taste of this collaboration (“Boss Levels” on G Jones’ Eyes EP), we thought it tasted like crap. And by crap, we mean some of the most original music out there. When Mad Zach stopped in…
