Your EDM – Week In Music 4/21/17

Sat, 04/22/2017 - 8:00pm

Two Your EDM curated playlists in the space of two days…what more could anybody want?! This week in Your EDM Week In Music we’re graced with some excellent remixes of Gorillaz, two new Pham remixes, Jai Wolf, Valentino Khan and more.

Our favorite mystery producer ZHU steals the cover spot with a stunning remix of “Andromeda” featuring D.R.A.M. by the aforementioned Gorillaz. As dark as ever, ZHU puts on a hypnotic house spin on the tune that we just can’t get out of our heads. Joining him in the remix department is young prodigy Pham who dropped two stellar remixes, first of “Easy Go” by Grandtheft and Delaney Jane followed by another for Autograf’s hit single “Nobody Knows.”

In the originals department, we’ve had a lot of good music come our ways this week. A R I Z O N A dropped another electro-pop hit in “Electric Touch” while Valentino Khan and Borgore dropped bangers with “Hello” and “Help” respectively. Boombox Cartel dropped a brand new EP Cartel today highlighted by our personal favorite single “Dem Fraid.”

Some of our favorite emerging artists also got into the act as well with some stunning originals. DNMO dropped a banger on DeadBeats as did DROELOE on bitbird while Steve Void and Justice Skolnik got busy as well with “West LA” and “Emotional” respectively.

Finally, one final shout-out goes to my personal favorite pick of the week. Pomo’s stunning single “Fall Together” with Harrison Brome which I hope closes off this playlist and your listening experience in style.

Your EDM Interview: DC Breaks on Their First LP Release on RAM, “Different Breed”

Sat, 04/22/2017 - 6:19pm

DC Breaks are comprised of Dan Havers and Chris Page, the “D” and “C” in the duo’s name. The two started making tracks together in 2005 and signed to Andy C’s RAM Records in 2010. Since then they have amassed a huge body of work, yet they have heretofore not actually released a full-length LP. Nonetheless, when said LP, Different Breed, released this month, it was one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2017.

Many fans, including the D&B department at Your EDM, have wondered about the process leading up to the release of Different Breed and how the duo put it together in the face of so much anticipation. On the heels of their recent world tour, Dan and Chris sat down with Your EDM to discuss the album, their process, and their love of drum and bass.

Thanks so much, Dan and Chris, for sitting down with us today and ccongrats on a great tour. You guys have been producing for quite a while now, and many fans are wondering why now for the release of Different Breed? 

Chris: Well, we’ve been wanting to do an album now for ages, and over the years we’ve put out several albums’ worth of music, so really when we wanted to do it, it came down to some behind the scenes stuff with the label as to why we were so delayed, but it all worked out really well in the end.
Dan: This is a really long story…(both laugh)
Chris: I mean without going into too much detail, we initially got the album signed to Virgin, and then RAM got bought out by BMG, so then we had to be re-scheduled under BMG’s timeline, which pushed it back over another year.

So the album was actually supposed to be out much sooner?

Dan: Yeah, like almost three years!
Chris: Yeah, we’d had an album pretty much ready for about three years at release time, but on the other end it’s evolved and it’s improved and got better than it ever was, so we’re happy with it.

So during that time did you just basically have it ready and just tinkering with it while you were waiting on the labels?

Dan: Yes and no, we basically wrote about three albums in that time, and so the album was kind of a mash of the three albums. A lot of the stuff was more current to 2011 2012 since that’s when we really started on it, but then as things kept changing we made a few more commercial tracks to go with Virgin, but then it changed again and we made some more brand new tracks that are more current with what’s going on in the sound right now so it is a bit of a mash. But like Chris said, it was better than any of the albums from before, so it did come together really well.

So it sounds like having that extra time was a good thing.

Both: Yeah, definitely.

Is that why there’s so many different styles on the album? What was the process in terms of choosing the songs?

Dan: Well my background is more musical than Chris’s, so we each have different strings to our bow, so that’s how we’re able to do so many different styles and genres, and we kind of think well, why not? I mean since the beginning, our first releases have always been vocal heavy and  bass heavy at the same time, so it is a true reflection of what we do. I’m really proud of it as well because we’ve written every song on that album.

Yeah, that’s a phenomenon not everyone is familiar with where some of the bigger producers don’t write all their tracks on their own.

Dan: Yeah, a lot of producers get songs given to them and we had none of that. Everything’s been written in our studio.
Chris: I don’t think it’s any surprise that (names deleted) have ghostwriters, and it’s not a new thing. Back in the day, loads of DJs would have ideas for tracks and, you know, just sit in the back of the studio and have a producer bang it out. It’s actually relatively recent that bedroom DJs can now make tracks and claim them as their own.

And that’s been a really interesting shift in culture, hasn’t it? Because of all this access now someone totally unknown can produce the tune of the year or something and it’s not dependent on labels and they can keep all the credit. But then performing gets tricky because it doesn’t take as much skill.

Chris: Yeah and then we have another issue as well where, you know, we’re artists first and DJs second, so when people come to see us perform, they really expect us to play all our own tracks so we’re expected to play our own music and we don’t know where to draw the line. I’d say our sets now are about 50/50. 50% our own stuff and 50% our other stuff, but people are there to see us play our own music. It’s great, but I guess there aren’t many proper DJs anymore on that circuit.

Wow it’s great to talk culture shifts with you guys. Back to the LP though, in terms of arranging songs with the styles, it seemed to vacillate between styles: pop on top of grindy on top of darker, so did you layer those on purpose, or was there a theme you were going for?

Chris: The tracklist was decided pretty late in the process. Since we started putting this album together so long ago, we wanted at least seven or eight brand-new tracks on there so that the album didn’t feel stale. So in the end it just became a collection of singles, so it did end up that we were layering it as song, banger, song banger…
Dan: And in the end, we ran out of songs so it just went banger, banger, banger! (Both laugh)
Chris: Yeah, we didn’t really spend a lot of time worrying about how it was going to hang together as an album, but it did work and come together, we think. But there are some points were it’s like “Never Stop” and right after, “Underground”, where it’s like woah!

Yeah, I remember thinking “that’s a shift in tone”!

Dan: Yeah, no one really sits down and listens to albums track by track anymore, but we like how it turned out as a whole album as well. It didn’t make sense to have just, you know, a half an hour of just vocal songs and then a half an hour of bangers. We were still even mastering the album right up to the wire, even though we had three years to put it together, so again I’m not sure the process we really that thought out in general.

Was there any theme drum-wise then? The seemed like kind of an homage to old jump up or old jungle, so what was your process there, when it came to a technical theme?

Dan: Chris? (Bot laugh)
Chris: Some of the old tunes of course we actually wrote back in the day, so we really just went and polished those up for the modern ear, but otherwise…I mean I think this probably sounds weird but I think we still struggle with drums. It takes so long to get a really good tight groove together, so with drums it’s just a bit of a slog.
Dan: But I mean I think as we’re just junglists, so it’s in our nature to reach for those classic breaks especially when we’re stuck, because that’s what it means to us. We’ve always done it.

That’s interesting, because when it came to those “bangers” as you call them, a lot of them had more modern, grimy, rolling basslines and it was quite surprising to have these more classic jump up/jungle drums marrying with that. Was there a reasoning to that?

Chris: Well, it actually is a process, because we’re in two separate studios; I’m in London and Dan’s in Bristol, so I tend to write the more jungly jump up stuff and then Dan writes the more musical stuff. So I’ll send Dan 16 bars of a jungle drum track, and then he’ll go and give it a wicked intro or some character, and then likewise he’ll write a song and then he’ll ping it back to me and I’ll throw in some drums and a bassline edit, so that’s why you end up with this fusion of really melodic stuff with more jungle jump up style within each song.

So speaking of jump up and bangers, do you guys care to weigh in on this controversy surrounding it right now? Some people are calling it the “brostep of drum and bass”, and it seems to be getting a bad rap. What do you think of all that from an artist’s perspective?

Dan: Chris and I first got into this in the clubs and at rave, and we write music for the clubs and for rave, so we very rarely write a track that has a light, chilled out drum beat. So, bangers fucking all the way man. I love chilled out liquid, but when I write music we write it so we can go out an play it in the club, I mean that’s the joy and that’s the job as well. There is no argument. If you like it, great and if you don’t, go and do something else.
Chris: The thing about jump up as well is that it goes in cycles. There was a time where Twisted Individual and that lot were making some amazing jump up, and then there was a time where it was just terrible, so now it’s just coming back that producers like Turno and Dominator  and even Gov are actually coming out with some decent tunes – I mean they’re not just catchy but actually well-made – and I have a soft spot for the stuff so I always try to play it in my sets, but there was a period where it was just really shit, and so people are just slow to give it a chance. I can see its potential with like Sasasas, they’ve created a really unique vibe, and they smash the jump up at the moment. I think when it’s well-made, the labels aren’t important.
Dan: Rule number one: don’t read the YouTube comments!

Very true! So what are next steps for you guys and is there anything else you want to say to the readers?

Dan: Erm…cheers guys!
Chris: (laughs) We’ve just done this USB version of the album, it’s a nice boxed USB with the album art and it’s got producer packs and loads of extras, so that’s on the RAM website now, and it’s been out for like a week and people are sending in remixes now so it’s cool to hear those. We’re also doing an Australia and New Zealand tour.
Dan: We’re hoping in the next year to do some collabs, and then of course there’s RAM25 so we’ll be doing some remixes for that and then hopefully another album by next year. Oh! And we have the UKF Podcast we’re doing next week. We’re really excited about that because we haven’t done it since about 2009, so definitely look out for that.

Alan Walker Drops An Addicting New Remix For Bruno Mars

Sat, 04/22/2017 - 2:54pm

After we gave Alan Walker’s last release a less-than-stunning review, we’re exceptionally happy to see what he’s done with this latest remix for “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars.

Though the track is still teeming with those saccharine synths, the arrangement and signature has been switched up and sounds a lot more fresh and energetic. Of course, a lot of this probably has to do with the vibe of the original and Mars’ own vocals, but Walker is definitely able to put his own spin on this hit from Mars’ album 24K.

Check out the remix below via Big Beat Records.

He’s been showing off new material while on tour with ill.Gates, but it’s finally time that his Unity Of Purpose EP is out on his very own Impossible Records.

Featuring all the great drums that you would expect from KJ Sawka, there’s also a healthy dose of bass and intricate sound design thrown in.

Beyond that, tracks like “Face Crack” and “The Time Has Come” really serve to highlight his skill as an electronic music producer.

Mr. Carmack Just Got Filthy with His Bootlegged Remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA” [LISTEN]

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 8:20pm

Mr. Carmack just remixed Kendrick Lamar‘s track “DNA” into an absolutely filthy, bass-driven trap song…

This dude, a true legend, ever so casually explained the bootlegged remix in his SoundCloud description: “been busy trying to apply concepts to my music, but DNA inspired me to crank out this bootleg earlier this morning. have it for free. peace.”

The fierce lyrical delivery on “DNA” leads the track, and then it takes an interesting turn — chilling out to a vibey sampling of Travis Scott‘s “Goosebumps,” which also features Lamar.

So, this is proof Mr. Carmack can “crank out” a bangin’ track before most people have even figured out what they’re having for breakfast. As if we had any doubts before.

Listen here!

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 6:18pm

Even though the fifth album from Gorillaz releases a week from today, lucky fans got the chance to listen to the album early through a brand new augmented reality app from the band. Intended to be a global listening party for the new album Humanz in locations around the world, the session launched through an official Gorillaz augmented reality app that created digital “spirit houses” in locations such as Bryant Park in New York City, Silver Lake Meadow in Los Angeles and more locations across the world.

The global listening party started at 11 a.m. EST today, and users can access the full list of locations of spirit houses through the app. The spirit houses emulate the Gorillaz’ own Spirit House, which is depicted in the “Saturn Barz” music video. Physical, pop-up listening parties will be held in Brooklyn, Amsterdam and Berlin over the next few weeks.

In other Gorillaz news, the group will perform a show in Brooklyn, New York on April 24 at Rough Trade and then perform live on TV on the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The lineup for the Colbert performance will include Damon Albarn, Seye Adelekan, Jesse Hackett, Mike Smith, Karl Vanden Bossche, Gabriel Wallace, Jeff Wooton and special guests.

Incubus’ New Album, Co-Produced By Skrillex, Is Out Now

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 3:57pm

You’d never think an EDM site would be covering the new album by Incubus, and you’re right — on normal conditions, we totally wouldn’t. But it just so happens that their new album 8 was entirely co-produced by our very own Skrillex.

The album has been on everyone’s radar since February, when we learned that Skrillex was going to have an apparent collaboration on the album. We’ve since learned that he’s more involved in the production and mixing of the album, and has had a hand in basically all of it.

While this album is objectively not EDM, we know that a significant portion of the EDM community grew up listening to Incubus and can still find enjoyment knowing that one of our most celebrated producers helped in the creation of this album. You might hear some more electronic influence on “Loneliest,” for example.

Your EDM Interview With Rusko, Ahead Of Life In Color San Diego

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 2:41pm

For a bass head like me, any show with Rusko on the lineup is a must-see. As one of the progenitors of modern-day dubstep, the founder of so-called ‘brostep,’ and one of the guys still keeping the wobble alive, Rusko is even more entrancing when on stage.

He’s playing tomorrow at Life In Color in San Diego, so we caught up with him to get his thoughts on the current state of dubstep, including trends and faults, as well as what he’ll be playing this weekend.

I’ve always got to ask you, as one of the pioneers of dubstep, what do you think of the current state of dubstep? A sort of “State Of The Union” address, if you will.

Haha it feels a long way away from what we used to call dubstep. It’s basically just trap and riddim now and it’s increased from 140 to 150 bpm. It’s essentially the same ingredients but it’s getting further away from its origins and evolving like all genres really. The good thing for me is, my sets are full of either old school classics or new stuff by myself and the few producers still rocking the original style. So when I’m on a line up of 2017 riddim and trap my set really stands out cos it sounds so different now and that’s a cool feeling.

What trends within dubstep have you seen come into popularity in the past year?

Lots of phasers and Flangers on bass lines – which sounds really cool. And , thankfully, a bit of a resurgence of the original dubstep style and a new appreciation developing I guess. It’s cool and I’ve been writing lots of tracks to capitalise on that!

The last track you dropped was “WALALANGLENG,” a dirty track with plenty of that classic wobble feel. How do you keep an “old” style sounding fresh?

Yeah that track and 4 others are coming out in June actually on my EP.
I think it’s mainly just having better tools and cooler, sharper sounds but keeping the same mindset as before. Also it’s all about groove with dubstep, creating a groove rather than scatter gunning it in people’s faces. For me anyway.

Anything more planned with Caspa?

Yeah, the plan all along was to keep it a special thing and a fun thing, so we did a bunch of touring and interviews and tunes last year and it was the best but to keep it fun and fresh this year we’ve both got tons of our own tracks so we’re just doing our own thing for a bit, that way when we’re both back home after the summer we can catch up and get excited again.

What do you think sets an event like Life In Color apart from other festivals?

Interactivity I think, people really feel part of one big experience when they are covered in luminous paint! I’ve played it before and for a DJ it’s the coolest thing to see and the crowd just goes crazy, so then I go crazy and it’s happy days.

What kind of set do you have prepared for the event?

As I mentioned before, it will be lessons in classic wobbly dubstep mixed with exclusive new tracks like walalanleng and a ton of cheeky remixes delivered with grace and humility by yours truly.

Coachella Generates Over 100 Tons Of Waste Per Day But Only A Fraction Gets Recycled

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 2:08pm

It’s no secret that music festivals create a lot of trash and waste. And when you combine high temperatures with a camping festival, the amount of waste left behind is compounded and can lead to ever increasing efforts to keep grounds clean.

According to a recently-released environmental impact report from Indio, Coachella and other festivals held by Goldenvoice on the same grounds would “generate 1,612 tons per year of solid waste,” meaning for each of the 15 days per year that Coachella, Stagecoach and Desert Trip would be taking place, an estimated 107 tons of waste could be generated.

Efforts are made to reduce the impact of waste per day on the Polo Fields. Attendees are encouraged to pick up and recycle plastic water bottles in exchange for a reusable bottle; they can also be redeemed for Ferris wheel tickets, T-shirts, posters, tote bags and other festival swag.

There’s even an interactive art exhibit this year centered around recycling, TRASHed–Art of Recycling.

However, the same report estimated that only a mere 20 percent of that waste, about 644,800 pounds, would be recycled.

Seeing as festivals like Euphoria ended up with nearly zero waste at their festival, staying clean is definitely possible. Though, as you might imagine, the amount of people and type of people a festival attracts can greatly influence the state of the venue after all is said and done.

The second weekend of Coachella begins today.

DNMO & Sub Urban – Broken

Thu, 04/20/2017 - 10:37pm

From Zed’s Dead’s label DeadBeats comes another banger of a future bass release, this time by young prodigy DNMO in collaboration with Sub Urban.

Highlighted with an infectiously catchy vocal hook, “Broken” tells the sale of scorned relationships and misplaced emotions with the instrumental accentuating the edgy message. Distorted production effects brush against hard drums and strange synths making “Broken” one of the more unique releases of the year thus far.

LANY x Andrew Luce – ILYSB (WAVESZ Edit) [Free Download]

Thu, 04/20/2017 - 10:00pm

Sometimes surfing through music platforms like SoundCloud, Spotify, or Bandcamp can yield music you’d never expect to listen to. From the usual crowd of artists who rack up plays and streams to the emerging profiles on these sites, it’s amazing to find that all it takes to build an astonishing music collection is an Internet connection and functioning ears. One of these fresh artists goes by WAVESZ as he shares a glimpse of his style in an edit of the Andrew Luce remix of “ILYSB” by LANY.

When Andrew Luce remixed the alternative song, he gave it a minimalistic-trap sound while maintaining the moodiness matching the heartfelt lyrical content. When WAVESZ comes in, he grabs the dials on synths and volume and raises them to 11. The soulful material presented in this “ILYSB” edit explodes with the melodic drop and it’s rhythmic majesty. This edit sounds like something you hear lying on the beach as the sun sets into the horizon. For a debut, WAVESZ knocks his first track under this moniker out of the park.

Make sure to grab the new WAVESZ edit of “ILYSB” from LANY x Andrew Luce while it’s still free.
