Monsters With Tiny Mustaches – Enter Eva (Album)

Your EDM - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 6:08pm

Once in a blue moon comes a team that seriously pushes the boundaries. They generally come out of nowhere, without any warning. Off the top of my head, I can think of a few examples such as Just A Gent or Twine. I’d like to introduce you now to Monsters With Tiny Mustaches, a team effort from MHKAZ and DJ Swoon.

Aside from having quite an absurd name (think Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) and a couple mascots that resemble Feed Me’s sidekicks, their production is on a whole other level. It’s not quite that these are unheard of sounds or arrangements, but the work as a whole demonstrates expert production and sound design. I can’t testify to the actual skill of MWTM, but as a listener it sounds really, really good.

The album sports six unique tracks, featuring collaborations with vocalist Ashley Apollodor and producer Killabyte. The album isn’t strictly dubstep either — some parts of it stray into glitch hop, drumstep, or even classical. Take the track ‘Freedom’ for instance, with vocals that resemble the kid singing the national anthem in that one scene in The Dark Knight Rises… you know the one. The use of string instruments to build suspense has always been a favorite technique of mine, but then it just drops like a piano in a Looney Toons episode, utterly crushing it and hammering that bass down low. Then you have a track like ‘Days’ whose vocals and driving piano chords in the intro and bridge make it feel like a legitimate song, right up until the bouncy glitch drop.

The sound design is probably most evident in tracks like ‘Enter Eva’ and ‘If I Could Freeze Time’ which meld soft and uplifting rises into absolutely tear-out productions of drumstep and dubstep. The surprise factor in a lot of the tracks is substantial which adds to the overall effect each track has, maximizing enjoyment and most importantly, the replay factor.

Following the six tracks on the album are three remixes from EH!DEDifferent Heaven, and Dope ArcadeDope Arcade is the odd man out, electing to make his remix into an almost pseud-liquid DnB style. I can’t say that I enjoyed it too much, but at the very least it provided a different perspective on the original track. EH!DE of course threw down and produced some truly energizing dubstep, but the winner of the three is undoubtedly Different Heaven, who remixed ‘Freedom.’ From the intro, you would swear that the track was bound for progressive house… you’d be dead wrong. All I can say is turn your speakers up, and just sit back and relax.

Overall, the whole release was a breath of fresh air from beginning to end. This was one of those random submissions that I get from time to time, and I am always, always happiest when they turn out to be some of the best production I’ve heard. MWTM released this without any support from a label, and while the road has been an uphill fight, the music will speak for itself in the end. To that end, please support the artist, and all indie artist, by purchasing their releases. It really does make a difference.

In addition to the album, Monsters With Tiny Mustaches have also planned out a small flash game and at least one music video for the future. You can check out the promo video for ‘Enter Eva’ below.

Momoiro Clover Z – Lost Child (Noisia remix)

Your EDM - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 6:01pm

Noisia crosses musical borders with a remix of “Lost Child” by one of Japan’s most popular groups, Momoiro Clover Z.

The intro will likely cause first time listeners to scratch their heads, if only for a moment, before descending into dark, murky, dubstep greatness. The Dutch trio’s creative process is curious; by lifting the vocals of a cheery J-pop song and transforming them into the haunting overture for a true-to-form dub anthem, Noisia has yielded another hit.

Lost Child serves as a bold example of dubstep’s resiliency despite recent internet fodder claiming the genre to in serious decline, even dead. True fans who regularly submerge themselves in bass know the scene is in no danger, and has only just begun to blossom. Noisia’s dedication is iconic and appreciated more than ever,

Zedd Premieres Newest Remix Of Magic!’s “Rude”

Your EDM - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 5:04pm

Everyone’s favorite German EDM artist Zedd has just posted the full stream of his newest work, a remix of Magic!‘s “Rude“. While it’s definitely very poppy and radio-friendly, there are still bits and pieces of Zedd’s signature electro sound throughout, and you can clearly tell it’s his style. The second break has great instrumentation with strings, guitar, and drums, giving a sort of funk aspect. Overall, it seems Zedd has a winner on his hands with this track. The remix will be released September 2nd, so keep an eye out for it in the next few days.

What do you think of Zedd’s “pop” style?

TOER & Chilligerent – Boogie Man [Free Download]

Your EDM - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 2:29pm

TOER is a dude you should already know. Chilligerent won’t be, but these two partnered up for an original that will scare everyone but the bass heads. “Boogie Man” is their hybrid original that has that iconic style TOER is continually perfecting; with the help of Chilligerent, who has no music yet on Soundcloud aside from this, the product is even more bangin’. Think big and strong; this packs that sound that would blow away crowds at EDC with bass, something that I feel has been lacking this past year at festivals thanks to big room. It subtly builds the hype and then releases it in full through an impact of grizzly basses and ear shattering synths. Once you get to the second drop, you’ll get on your hands and knees and start praying to the gods of the low end thanking them, if you haven’t already. All you really need to do though is thank TOER and Chilligerent for making and releasing this one for free!

Your EDM Premiere: Black Tiger Sex Machine – Futuristic Thriller Part VII

Your EDM - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 1:40pm

Black Tiger Sex Machine as a trio are very passionate about the music they make and the music they play. With their Futuristic Thriller mix series, BTSM not only showcase the music they love, but they present it in such a way where you feel like you’re listening to a story and not just a series of songs. I have yet to find a mix or podcast that presents music in such a way. The way BTSM uses the vocal samples from various films to complement the tracks in the mix creates real emotion and feeling often times not found by other mixes.

With this latest entry in the series, we see them focus on the film Akira. Akira is regarded as one of the greatest animated films of all time and was known for its dark supernatural themes. So, it’s with no surprise that BTSM are able to transfer these themes from the film into this mix given their history with the darker side of dance music.

This is something you truly get lost in; the way the movie is sampled, the mix becomes a summary of the film, using the important parts of the plot as samples. Breaks in between songs add details and clarity to the overall plot of the story. At one point, as the mix is transitioning into “Dabin & Black Tiger Sex Machine – Jack Dat Body,”  you can hear the panicked voice of one character quickly get cut off in an abrupt manner, showing the intensity of that situation in the film.

Music in films is immensely important and can make or break the mood of a scene. Just imagine a horror movie with a soundtrack by The Proclaimers. I don’t know about you, but “500 Miles” doesn’t exactly sound terrifying. I’m sure BTSM understand this idea and have applied the concept very well to this mix. The songs used control the mood and make you feel things like suspense, nervousness, worry and curiosity in the best way possible.

Black Tiger Sex Machine are one of my favorite artists and if anyone needs reason why, they need not look further after this mix, which can be streamed and downloaded below.

Your EDM Premiere: Porter Robinson – Flicker (James Egbert Remix) [Free Download]

Your EDM - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 3:28pm


Porter Robinson’s Worlds was a different direction for the artist and some people missed his old style reflected in his Spitfire EP.

Fortunately James Egbert, a well known house producer, has taken on Porter’s track “Flicker” and given his spin on it. Instead of a upbeat future bass song, James has crafted a club ready electro house remix. That being said, this remix isn’t something focused purely on the drop; there is clear appreciation from James for the original song in the breakdowns, especially the longer and more climatic second breakdown. I think my favorite part of the song was right after the first drop when the song became a melodic groove machine. It was so unexpected, yet it fit perfectly into the overall feel of the song.

You can stream and download the remix below.

Your EDM Premiere: Behind The Scenes Look at “Let’s Rock” With Far Too Loud & Electrixx

Your EDM - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 3:21pm

Getting to see just how a song is made is pretty cool. Although not all the steps and secrets are revealed, at least getting a peak at some “making of” action can get a producer or even a listener inspired. With this premiere we showcase a behind the scene’s look at the making of “Let’s Rock,” the newest single from Far Too Loud and Electrixx. They explain a little about how the track came together, while they work on almost finishing up the tune, which you can find out more about in a recent interview we had with Oli. Taking place in a Berlin studio, these two go through it all, including computer issues, which all producers go through, even at the top. If you haven’t heard the single, be sure to check it out and head over to Beatport to snag a copy.

Study Ranks “Most Talked About” Festivals of 2014

Your EDM - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 3:15pm

By now, you’ve surely seen the massive influx of #hashtags and @mentions whenever a huge music festival takes place, whether it’s on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc. Turns out, all this chatter can be studied as a metric for how popular each festival is. Online ticketing service Eventbrite has recently released a comprehensive social media study focusing on various social aspects of festivals and how they relate to the amount of “buzz” generated for each. While the study includes festivals centered around music of all styles, it’s interesting to note that 8 of the top 25 festivals are electronic-oriented (not including festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Lollapalooza, which also have electronic acts). The study also shows the breakdown of the buzz by content, location, timing (before, during, or after the event), and lots of other criteria. Check out the full report here.
