[House] Adventure Club – Wonder (Feat. The Kite String Tangle)

Adventure Club
Wonder Feat. The Kite String Tangle

Few things in life get us quite as excited as new material from Adventure Club. The Canadian production duo take a break from the dubstep with their latest outing, stringing together an enchantingly hypnotizing soundscape with a melody that’s still perfectly danceable. Their single is only complimented even further by adding in the dazzling vocals of The Kite String Tangle, the solo project from electronic producer, Danny Harley. This spectacular new cut can be found on Adventure Club’s brand new EP, Calling All Heroes, Pt. 1, which is available on iTunes now.

[TMN Interview] Adventure Club’s progression from Pop-Punk highschoolers to Dubstep kings

Adventure Club
Superheroes Anonymous Volume. 3

This past weekend, Red Rocks was taken over by Rowdytown. TMN has the chance to sit down with the Canadian boys of Adventure Club and learn more about their musical pasts, their love for macaroni and cheese, and why you will always find them wearing bunnyhugs.

TMN: This evening I have the pleasure of sitting down with Christian and Leighton, the duo who we all know as Adventure Club. Guys thank you so much for taking the time to sit down with us at Rowdytown.

AC: Bonjour Music Ninja, c’est bien?

TMN: First I have to say, welcome back to Red Rocks, how many times is this playing here for you now? What are a few things you love about playing at this incredible outdoor venue?

C: This is our second time here. The first time we played here was during the day and today the sunset and the light projection on the rocks is such an unbelievable experience.

L: You get to see everyone with their glow sticks up in the air

C: (Laughs) Even if they are throwing them at you!

L: With really big drops you would see all these glow sticks just go flying in the air is was incredible.

C: I can’t get over the projection on the rocks.

L: And we got to play with our favorite Big Gigantic…well and of course Carnage and the boys.

TMN: I recently read another interview in which you said the show that surprised you the most was your show in Boulder, Colorado about two years ago when you two were just starting out (I was there side note, it was an amazing show). Was that one of those ah-ha moments in which you realized this could all get huge? That Adventure Club might have the chance of becoming something big?

C: We hadn’t been playing for too long and we weren’t too experienced with a live set yet. So we figured the music we were playing was the music we knew and no one else knew. We came into Colorado and played more than one show and everyone knew our songs.

L: And they knew our songs, like our original songs which was a huge shocker. We were shocked and impressed. I give a lot of that credit to Nick from This Song is Sick for spreading our shit around Colorado he’s been a big help with that.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo: Volume #7

The Trap Dojo is here once again to take over the world, infusing everything we can with 808s and snares. Forget about cowbells, we need more gunshots.

Oh Snap!! hits us first with “Watup Bitch” an absolute club banger that could make any dance floor go crazy, love the 90’s vibe coming off Flygirls vocals. No word on when this one is coming out though. “Flex” by Solice starts off with a dance beat to keep those feet moving but comes out of nowhere (just like Solace did) with a huge haunting bass drop. CRNKN has been on such a massive roll lately and brings us two new tracks this week. Both are simply oozing with gangster swag and filled to the brim with gunshots and heavy beats and hooks. Dupstep pioneer Caspa remixed this Ludacris track way back in 2010. It didn’t get much attention or an official release then, but was just put back up for free on his Soundcloud this week. Up next are a couple sounds by OG Status, definitely a group to keep an eye on. The rest of the list is hit after hit, with ETC!ETC!, Brillz, TrapZillas and Big Chocolate  all going hard. Godmode get dark with their own brand of “Satanic Trap,” and Baauer shows his incredible diversity and ability to produce hype anthems as well as tracks like this remix of Brick + Mortar. 

As usual, we’ve been nice enough to do all the work for you and give you all the free tracks RIGHT HERE.

’Kronic – Watup Bitch ft. Flygirl Tee (Oh Snap!! Trap Remix)’
’Expendable Youth & CRNKN – GUNFIYAH’
’Ludacris – How Low (Caspa Remix)’
’Seven Figures’
’Brillz, ETC!ETC! & Smile Future – Represent Your City’
’DVNNY SETH – Kitchen’
’Danny Brown – Lie4 (Kaytradamus Remix)’
’TrapZillas – Burned’

[Dubstep] Adventure Club – Wait (Culture Code Remix)

If you’ve been following us over the last couple of months, you’ll know that we here at The Music Ninja absolutely love Adventure Club. Because of this relationship we have with the group, it’s only fair that we be a little protective when it comes to remixes of their excellent music. Despite our skepticism going in though, Culture Code was able to blow us away with this remix of “Wait.” Improving upon an original from Adventure Club is certainly a tough task, but the UK duo is able to provide a fresh take on the track, slowing the pace down to give us even more pronounced “womps.” Add this one to your rage lists, because any excuse to listen to more Adventure Club is a win in our books.  Make sure to check out all of Culture Code’s other amazing remixes over at their official SoundCloud page. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Metric – Collect Call (Adventure Club Remix)

These boys from Montréal, Canada have taken the dubstep world by storm. Adventure Club was formed early 2011 by local musicians Christian Srigley & Leighton James and already are well established in the dubstep community having release a handful of richly thought out remixes of mostly indie songs. AC has decided to go back to a 2009 classic “Collect Call” of Fantasies, the fourth studio album by Canadian indie rock band Metric.

What we have here is another gentle track with light dreamy wobbles that surrounds the original vocals by the wonderful metric lead singer Emily Haines. A satisfying drop and a journey that could even please some of those anti-dubstep fans out there.

[Dubstep] Exclusive interview with Adventure Club + Free Download

Adventure Club are a DJ/Producer duo consisting of Leighton and Christian from Montreal, Canada. Though they are new to the EDM scene, their debut productions have received significant praise from blogs and listeners alike. What separates Adventure Club from other dubstep producers, is their use of original, and even sometimes unexpected, samples for their tracks, which will force even the most anti-dubstep music fans to reconsider. I recently had a chance to catch up with the busy duo:

Why adventure club? Interesting name but it’s something you’d expect from an 80s movie, like “The Breakfast Club”, rather than a hard-hitting dubstep producing duo.

We were bouncing ideas off of each other for a bit. At first we we’re playing around in the ‘grimy’ area, but the mixes we were making didn’t seem to fit any of the names. When we got to Adventure Club, it just felt good. We enjoy the contrast between the playful tones of the name compared to the dark/dirty/yummy sounds that make dubstep. Omnomnom…

Having started producing in January of this year, making music must have been a recent decision. What pushed you to get into it?

We actually started when we were pretty young (Leighton with piano and Christian with guitar), and put a band together when we met in high-school. The band changed names, styles (pop punk, emo, hardcore, indie) and members a lot, but we always ended up sticking together.

This might seem like an obvious question, but why dubstep?

Before we got introduced to dubstep, we were huge hardcore fans (the screaming stuff not the techno stuff lol). The first track we got into was a gateway of both styles. It was a Bring me the Horizon remix by Tek-one “Sleep with one eye open”, and from there we started listening to a massive amount of producers trying to satisfy our new dubstep thirst. One night we just decided to fuck around with some sounds (none of which turned out well), but having that window opened seemed to turn our attention away from any of our other projects.

It’s been less than four months since you started, yet you’ve produced numerous incredible tracks; what’s your secret?

Why thank-you. We think the progression that we made through styles definitely adds to our music, and before Adventure Club, we had been developing a creative process together for years. Besides that, we just try to make/remix songs that we would listen to.

We think it’s awesome that you distribute your music for free, and even encourage this free distribution. Sadly this is not a choice that has been popular with many other artists. Why such an unorthodox decision?

There wasn’t much of a decision. As far as we’re concerned, the more people listening, the better. We never looked at our project as a business model because it wasn’t costing us very much to do it.

Like any producers, things must have started out quite small, when did you realize Adventure Club could be something successful?

A couple days after we released Daisy, lol (although our level of success so far is extremely debatable).  It took off in our eyes (but again, any amount of attention feels crazy for us), thanks to a few blogs that took the time to check us out, (thegetdownnn, theburningear, salacioussound to name a few). That was definitely one of the coolest/most rewarding feelings.

What sets you apart from other dubstep producers is your oftentimes unusual, yet refreshing, choice of samples. Who have been the musical inspirations that have helped shape your present sound?

Oh man, this list could go on forever. We definitely take from many different genres, but a few of the guys we’re listening to right now are Emarosa, Mumford and Sons, Asking Alexandria, Thrice, Circa Survive, Miike Snow,  Portishead, Agnus and Julia Stone, the Weeknd, Flux Pavilion, Skrillex, the xx, Zeds Dead, Nero…we might as well stop at some point.

Adventure Club thus far has stuck to sampling. Are there any vocalists or producers you would like to work with in future productions?

We’re excited to work on some original tracks, to get an E.P out. We’ve got some cool collabs lined up already. If we could choose a couple vocalists they would be Jonny Craig, Jesse Lacey, Ellie Goulding (we’d probably only spend our time pretending to not check her out), Elly Jackson (even though those two run a huge part of the dubmix world atm) oh… and obviously Ke$ha.

Your popularity has arisen from top-notch dubstep productions. Are you considering experimenting with other genres, or are you sticking to what you do best?

Uhm, we actually have a bit of drumstep work we’re sitting on at the moment, and maybe when the time is right we can unleash a few of our indie tracks. We still sit down with our guitars sometimes…

Dubstep was born in the UK, yet has experienced a recent boom in popularity in North America, to such a point that pop singers are playing around with it. How do you feel about dubstep going mainstream?

We like the idea of making dubstep more accessible. It’s a big umbrella already, but there are probably a lot of people who would love the pace and feel of the genre once they found a style that suits them.

When can we expect the world tour and platinum album release from Adventure Club?

When Leighton stops reffing little league baseball to commit to Adventure Club 110%. As he say so himself, there’s no ‘I’ in Adventure Club…what a goon.

Does Adventure Club have something special planned anytime soon?

We’re actually planning on eventually renting out a church to put together a real life Adventure Club.. oh and boys only.

With the dubstep filled release of the new Mortal Kombat, it is only appropriate for me to ask, what character would Adventure Club be, and why?

Based on our levels of in-game success with said characters, Christian will be Liu Kang and Leighton might as well be Sub-Zero (biggest noob ice-spammer in the world)

You’ve gathered quite a few music ninja fans after your release of your “We Don’t Eat “remix, anything you would like to say to the ninjas?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmJbJs-9ST0 … we would never manage to put it better ourselves.
And a huge shout out to the Music Ninja! We’ve found more than a few gems on the site.

Bonus Track:

Keeping with their style of smooth, soothing vocals with deep resonating basslines, here is a new track from the duo released today
Thrice – Broken Lungs (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)
