Your EDM Interview: Muzzy on His New EP, “Spectrum” [Video]

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 5:20pm

Monstercat’s artist du jour Muzzy just released his newest drum and bass EP, Spectrum, this week. Muzzy’s last EP, F-Minor Factory, put him on the map for heavy, grindy, metallic yet technically clean sound, but listeners may be surprised at this new album which takes on more melodic and even classical elements. In his first stateside interview and one of our most fun and energetic to-date, Muzzy spoke to Your EDM about the impetus behind Spectrum and the work that went into creating this robust, theatrical piece of work.

Thanks for sitting down with us today. Since some readers in the U.S. may not know your history with drum and bass and with Monstercat, can you talk about when you started with DnB and when Monstercat came into the picture?

Of course. I started mucking around with programming when I was about 13 or 14, and by the time I was 15 or 16 drum and bass just took over. I guess it was Pendulum’s “Slam” that really did it. I just loved the big, cinematic production values. I love Playaz as well, Camo & Krooked, but something with Pendulum just resonated with me. I got in with Monstercat when they just started, around 2010. I put out a few beat sample packs with them, but then Mike Darlington really encouraged me to go farther and that’s when I put out my first EP, The Takeover. It was one of the first all-digital formats; back then the technology wasn’t as sophisticated as it is now, but I’m proud of that work.

Is that why you waited until 2016 to put out F-Minor Factory? 

No, not really. I put out some other singles in those years, and I was just developing my style. I was figuring out how to marry different styles. What excites me both technically and sound-wise is putting together influences from different genres. You know drum and bass isn’t just about drum and bass. It’s the style you put into it, so I didn’t want to put out another EP until I had a concept built around that fusion. I love heavy rock, and again theatrical, strong vibes. Sort of a wall of sound style. F-Minor Factory came together when I came up with a really strong theme or, sort of concept that tied all four tracks together on the album. It’s dark and aggressive and definitely influenced by rock, and I sort of literally wanted listeners to picture the tracks being screwed together in a factory.

That’s really cool. It obviously worked. Did you have a theme in mind for Spectrum as well?

I don’t think so. I just sort of wanted to make what I like and what was interesting to me. “Breakaway”, for example, I did with Priority One and we really wanted to do a sort of 80s-style vibe. It was quite difficult to make those styles match up, since the 80s synth is very straight versus a broken drum and bass beat, but we relished the challenge. It wasn’t nearly as challenging as “Spectrum”, though.

You’re right, that track was quite different form anything that’s trending right now, and I can see the theatrics in it for sure, and some similarity to early Pendulum.What was the most challenging thing about “Spectrum”?

Everything was challenging on that track. I don’t think I was directly influenced by Pendulum’s style for the production, but I really wanted just as big of an ensemble, heavy, cinematic production values as possible. It’s just what I’ve always loved. The biggest challenge was again about marrying styles, but since it has a full compliment of strings – like I mean the orchestral bits are all literally a string quartet who came in and recorded in the studio – it’s so much work to convert everything. I mean, the time signatures are the same but that’s about it. I don’t think it’s ever been done before the way I did it, but if it was I know how hard it is now.

Do you have any background or training in classical music?

No I don’t! None at all. For this one track I had to research how orchestral pieces are put together, and it’s really completely different from anything we do today, digital or otherwise. No one writes sheet music anymore, and so to get these strings in to play the tunes, I had to somehow get the tune to sheet music. So that was the first and one of the biggest hurdles. I had to send a mate of mine all these MIDI files and then he converted them to sheet music so that we effectively had a score. I wanted it to be as authentic as possible on the more continuous bits. I did use a few sound samples to fill out the track on the strings and classical parts, but everywhere you hear ensemble work, that’s a real ensemble who read real sheet music. It was wild.

So how did you end up composing “Spectrum” once you had the string and classical pieces? It seems like that would still be really tricky.

You know, it really was but in my research I started to look towards gaming, actually. I think I sort of found a happy medium there. I’ve always been a big fan of gaming composers like Hans Zimmer or James Horner, again sort of because I’m drawn to these big, elaborate compositions, and anyway I realized that in games the composition is all about cues, not necessarily bars and time signatures. So I watched a ton of gaming footage and how the music was cued to go in with the action, and I sort of got my answer there. When I screwed it all together, I put different cues for different pieces in the recording and it was tricky but it really worked. I got the sound I wanted but it took a lot of time and patience. To me it’s worth it though. I wouldn’t have been happy with it if I hadn’t got it down to the exact sound that I have it at, and that’s really satisfying.

Did the research and work you did on gaming compositions influence you on the video for “Spectrum”? 

I definitely wanted something that had visuals that went with the music, but you always want that. I guess it was sort of backwards. I lined the graphics up with the cues in the song, since I’d already programmed it in that way, but I hope the end result is still a really cool gaming feel.

The gaming influence definitely comes out in the graphics and timing of the video. Will there be any other videos for singles off the Spectrum EP?

No, I don’t think so. This one was really labor-intensive, and I just decided to throw all the money and effort into that production, and I think it shows.

So are people really into that track, reaction-wise? Have you heard any feedback on the other tracks?

Well, it’s only just out so it’s hard to say yet but the DJs who’ve gotten the EP in advance sort of threw me a curveball because the DJ favorite is definitely leaning towards “Outsiders” (the album closer) at the moment. I wasn’t expecting that. I really just wrote that track as something fun and easy after all the work we put into “Spectrum”. I think it’s because it’s really simple and clean and easy to mix into, and had a really kind of funky jump-up vibe. It’s completely different from my normal style, but I won’t argue. “Spectrum” was a labor of love and a test for myself. If people love “Outsiders” too, then I’m cool with that. As long as I’m making what I love either way that’s all that matters.

It’s true; listening to Spectrum, it’s obvious that Muzzy doesn’t follow trends. There’s no neurofunk or obvious technical lines anywhere to be found, even though his production is as clean as anything released today, Monstercat or otherwise. The end product is just about vibes, and Muzzy’s vibes are big and passionate, no matter what style or styles he’s working with. Muzzy’s sort of an industry secret for that reason. Producers, critics and labels respect the quality of his production, no matter where the trends are, with regard to sub-genre. Spectrum is exactly what Muzzy set out to create: strong, cinematic, technically brilliant and at the same time emotive and evocative. As the festie season rolls on this summer, keep Muzzy and Spectrum in mind when a track ID is hard to place; more than one of these four tracks are likely to show up on headliner playlists, and they will inevitably tear up the dancefloor.

Evix – Whatcha Think (feat. Jake Herring) [Free Download]

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 4:39pm

A new tune popped up yesterday from Lowly Palace that caught my attention enough and should definitely be discussed and shared. The same imprint that has shared music from Paris Blohm and Unlike Pluto, to name a few, introduces it’s latest track “Whatcha Think” from Michigan producer Evix.

The song opens with soft vocal bits that warp the pitch creating this alien yet comforting noise. Featured vocalist Jake Herring enters the track with a type of folksy twang while the lyrics drop references to Steve Aoki and hard labor. The way Herring’s vocal delivery lingers over the instrumental adds a great deal of soul over the cloudy ambiance presented by Evix. If I didn’t know better, Jake’s singing sounds like the frontman of Mumford & Sons singing on a Zayn track. The drops shower a sensational amount of sugary synths reinforced with punchy melodic composition. Each beat, reacquainted with vocal chops from earlier, flourish in the same manner that makes up some of the greatest future bass tracks.

Make sure to give a listen to Evix and his track “Whatcha Think” featuring Jake Herring.

Rita Ora Confirms A Collaboration With Marshmello Is On The Way

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 2:51pm

Rita Ora is known quite well in dance music. Aside from dating Calvin Harris, her self-titled debut album Ora featured a lot of crossover appeal, as well as having featured in many tracks from DJ Fresh to Sigma.

Now, it looks certain that she’s returning to dance music with a forthcoming collaboration with none other than Marshmello, as the Instagram post below so damningly implies.

No other evidence of this collaboration has yet surfaced, so it’s hard to even contemplate what the track will sound like. Though if past trends are any indication, it will have a lot of vocal chops, and will blend future bass and trap beats into a sickeningly sweet concoction.

As predictable as his tracks are, we still can’t wait to hear this collaboration.

Coming soon…

Kendl – For Her

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 11:53pm

Truth be told, I’ve been sitting on this track for awhile now waiting for the perfect time and place to share it – and late on a Monday night seems to be the perfect time for this soulful cut from Kendl.

The single comes from Kendl’s forthcoming EP Colours and. as the song name “For Her” infers, is a soulful and peaceful piece. The producer shows off some wicked percussion and warm textures inviting listeners on an intimate walk through soundscapes and sonic textures. This is one that you won’t want to leave off of any sleep, study, or chill playlists.

We Think We Figured Out Ushuaïa’s New Mystery Residency

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 10:25pm

Ushuaïa has been teasing a new resident for their Ibiza club since last week, and we think we finally figured out who it is…

Without giving away all our sources, it would make a lot of sense if it was Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. After selling out Amnesia on the island week after week, it would only make sense that they move on up to the biggest club on the island.

The theme is also slightly Tomorrowland-esque, giving off that magical and wondrous vibe in the art and decoration.

There have also been a considerable number of people who have guessed Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike on the teaser image itself; though that alone isn’t exactly conclusive, as Guy Gerber has also received his fair share of guesses. Still, nothing is known for certain until Ushuaïa or the resident themselves reveals the way.

Nyxen – Is It Love

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 6:59pm

Nyxen is back with an exciting new release just in time for the warm weather. Giving us a follow up to her Running EP, the Australian producer brings us a fresh, summer infused track. Showing us her talent as a guitarist, Nyxen’s newest track “Is It Love” gives us a taste of the talent the artist possesses.

The track begins with an infectious guitar riff, followed by pitched vocals that wrap your ears with a catchy melody. As the drop comes in, the pitched vocals transform giving us a new iteration of a melody to dance to. Guitar riffs ring throughout, giving us a real beach-side vibe.

JR Jarris x ACE – What Would You Do

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 6:43pm

JR Jarris is coming out with an EP in a month titled Second Nature. Producing some laid-back hits has obviously become second nature for the young producer. His most recent collaboration with ACE was intended for the EP, but didn’t quite make the cut. “What Would You Do” is a pleasant surprise nonetheless and makes me excited for the forthcoming EP.

A flawless flip of Justin Timeberlake’s “My Love”, the track starts with a simple drum pattern with effects that give it a lo-fi 80s feel, effectively giving the track a nostalgic feel. Pitched down Timberlake vocals are introduced as some simple saw waves begin playing jazz inspired, lush chords. The verse of “My Love” comes in as the beat is re-introduced with an infectious melody and the familiar lush, jazzy chords we know from earlier. The track is extremely danceable and will make you want to move and groove.

Check Out Martin Garrix’s Insane $5 Million AirBnB From Coachella

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 6:25pm

Like Burning Man, Coachella is suffering from mass commodification and a lot of rich people invading a space for a set period of time and creating a microcosm of fashion and culture. Unlike Burning Man, this has been the case at Coachella for years already.

As artists generally avoid the camping areas at festivals like this, they’ve opted to instead rent out lavish homes via services like AirBnB. Martin Garrix for instance, who performed Saturday night at the festival, was put up at this La Quinta Airbnb, and enjoyed the $5 million estate that is 3,888 square feet.

WOOO! Thanks to @Airbnb for putting us up!

A post shared by Martin Garrix (@martingarrix) on Apr 17, 2017 at 9:42am PDT

(That’s Justin Mylo with the other supersoaker, by the way.)

Man Caught With Over 100 Stolen Phones At Coachella

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 4:12pm

One of the most egregious criticisms of last year’s Coachella was the absolutely rampant pickpocketing that was going on within the crowd. Hundreds of people fell victim to lost wallets and phones, and a major PSA was made regarding the outbreak.

This year, there hasn’t been as much outcry about pickpocketing, so hopefully it’s died down a bit. But at least one man was caught with over 100 stolen phones within the venue.

Many victims apparently used the “Find My Phone” app and tracked the perp, 36-year-old Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, through the venue and he was quickly detained by security officers. Over 100 cell phones were found in his backpack.

All the phones were either returned to their rightful owners or turned over to the lost and found area at the concert site, police said.

Henao was released Saturday from the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning after posting $10,000 bail, according to jail records.

He is scheduled to appear in court May 26.

Lorde Premieres 2 New Songs Live at Coachella, Gears Up for Summer Full of Festivals

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 3:07pm

Lorde is taking over the festival circuit this year!

Last night, she wowed Coachella 2017 during her first major show in 2 years. Later this summer she’ll perform the main stages at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Governors Ball, and more!

During her set, she debuted 2 new tracks live from her forthcoming album Melodrama, a record about all of the ups and downs of being 20-something. “Homemade Dynamite” is a sultry, bass-heavy track that sounds like it’s just begging for a remix pack.

Later in the set, Lorde performed the title track from her new album, “Melodrama” featuring darker undertones mixed with trap-inspired snares. The pop star also took on her other brand new songs, “Sober, “Liability” and her dance-infused leading single, “Green Light.”

We absolutely love how her sound has developed, and can’t wait to hear Melodrama in full on June 16th!

Tom & Hills ft. Cosmos – Lies (32Stitches Remix)

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 1:16pm

It’s still before noon on the west coast, so I’m not about that turn up just yet. Instead, I like to listen to some smoother, more chill melodies in the mornings to get my engine going and this remix of “Lies” by 32stitches is hitting the spot nicely.

Blending the indie-styled vocals with an anthemic and slightly understated melodic drop, utilizing elements of trap and future bass is the true key to this song’s wonderment. Due to the length of the bridges, unfortunately, the song seems rather short – however, what it lacks in duration it makes up for in quality.

Check out the 32stitches remix of “Lies” by Tom & Hills below.

No doubt, many people found it hard to choose between all these sets and the acts that conflicted with them, but thankfully there are those who record sets for our pleasure who save the day. Sets from the aforementioned acts, as well as Anna Lunoe and Hans Zimmer have been uploaded for you to check out – we’ll continue to update this post with more sets as they become available.

Marshmello Just Debuted His Newest Single At Coachella [WATCH]

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 2:18am

Marshmello‘s closing Sahara Tent set on the final evening of Coachella’s first weekend brought with it a slew of interesting guests, powerful beats and an immense crowd to match.

After bringing out Blink-182’s Travis Barker, Black Youngsta and A$AP Ferg, Marshmello decided to end the festivities with a debut of his brand new single, featuring guitar and vocals from Andrew Watts, co-writer of DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You.” The American singer songwriter also has past credits on Kygo and Selena Gomez’s “It Ain’t Me,” SNBRN’s “Beat The Sunrise,” Steve Angello’s “Rebel Nation” and several tracks of Justin Bieber’s.

Lucky for those of us at home, the track was played out in full via the festival’s Youtube live stream.

It starts with deep bass synths and guitar plucks underneath Watt’s soaring vocals, until the track explodes upwards in typical Mello style to a high-flying realm of future bliss. The track quickly transforms into an uplifting singalong, complete with raw guitar riffs and a bouncy percussion section worthy of some of Marshmello’s most acclaimed hits.

Listen to the new single in its entirety below, and keep your eyes peeled for its official release.

Sun, 04/16/2017 - 5:46pm

Day 2 of Coachella 2017 boasted some of the best and brightest talents EDM has to offer, including DJ Snake hot off his headlining Ultra set, Martin Garrix, Gryffin, and Mura Masa.

These are some of the best sets we’ve heard come out of the festival so far, for totally different reasons… Snake prepared a high-energy, star studded show that shut down the Outdoor Theatre. Meanwhile, Martin Garrix packed a huge crowd in and around the Sahara tent, featuring a brand new song and special guest Dua Lipa. Gryffin dropped a ridiculous amount of IDs during his set, showing off his beautifully vibey productions. And last, but certainly not least, Mura Masa brought Desiigner, A$ap Rocky and more out to play at Mojave, making for a unique live performance — the kind that only happens at Coachella.

If you still need to get caught up on day 1 we’ve got you covered on that, too.

Lady Gaga Debuts EDM-Pop Crossover Track “The Cure” At Coachella [LISTEN]

Sun, 04/16/2017 - 5:16pm

Since Lady Gaga took over the Super Bowl LI Halftime Show, she’s solidified her reputation as one of the best dance/pop talents of our time. The extravagance of that display led to high expectations for her headlining Coachella 2017 performance as well — How would she out Gaga herself?

Naturally, she killed it. But, her new single, “The Cure,” she debuted at Coachella last night doesn’t entirely match up to the powerhouse status she’s grown into. The track is clearly influenced by much of the popular EDM-pop crossover tracks we hear today. Which is fine, but it’s lacking that overly inventive, borderline shocking edge we’ve come to expect from Mother Monster.

For nearly a decade, the superstar has flexed her vocal strengths through a variety of different genres, starting with her pop roots in The Fame and The Fame Monster, and progressing into heavier dance-meets-rock-n-roll sound in Born This Way, and she got even more experimental with Artpop. Since then, she’s toned it down with her latest, most mature album Joanne.

As for “The Cure,” it’s cool and has remix potential, but mostly listens like a lackluster Chainsmokers collab. Still, we’re really hoping Lady Gaga continues to work on electronic leaning tracks that take more risks and totally wow us!
