The San Francisco based trio The M Machine have just released the most impressive follow up to Metropolis Pt I with a six track EP that simultaneously extend the definition of electronic music. With a sound that almost seems ahead of its time, Metropolis Pt. II brings a whole set of new sonic experiences to both OWSLA and the world as a whole. Rich with palpable experimental basslines and progressive beats, The M Machine makes their mark to what already looks like a promising year. Stream below and you can grab this up on beatport/iTunes.
Unlike people staying home on President’s Day, Trap does not take a day off. HeRobust, otherwise known as Hayden Kramer, is an emerging producer from Atlanta, GA who’s been an early adapter of all things that have a beat, from hip/hop to dubstep. His latest fascination for trap music has forced him to contribute to the ever growing community releasing today a MONSTER remix of Borgore & Carnage‘s now ubiquitous bass pounding track “Incredible”. The result is simply a bulletproof twerk track that sounds bigger than life itself.
Chicago’s Midnight Conspiracy have become remarkable at one thing: creating a blend between electro and dubstep in the most profound, and often scariest, of ways. The somber overtones exposed on every single of their tracks are haunted with filthy aggressive basslines and goosebump-giving melodies to even rival those of dubstep producer Figure.
Their latest and most notorious single released late last year “Sentinel“, summoned a persecuting force of heavy bass accompanied by preying organ melodies capable of crawling under your skin. Continuing their evil plan of making the world a much darker place, today we have an exclusive preview of tomorrow’s release, “Satellite”. Oozing both slow burning bass and malevolent sounds, Midnight Conspiracy proves once more they have not strayed off course.
Caution: THIS SONG IS STRICTLY 4 THUGZ ONLY. IF U R NOT A THUG PLZ CLOSE UR INTERNET AS IT MAY INFLUENCE U TO DO THINGS THAT R SCANDALOUS & ROWDY IN NATURE.
With a disclaimer like that, it is easy to dismiss this track as just another attempt for attention. But after the first listen, we just might have to agree. The Los Angeles trap baller Valentino Khan just released another free track full of enough trap aggression to make you want to grab that annoying copy machine that never works and put a beating to it Office Space style.
Straight to your speakers with wailing reverbs, slaps of bass and apocalypse style drops, San Francisco born DJ/Producer, Jordan Atkins-Loria aka Lucky Date, comes full force with a preview of the new track “Freak”. Full of organized chaotic destruction of progressive electro, this guaranteed banger will be out on Beatport Monday February 25th, 2013.
French producer and melody monster Pyramid just released a remix of “Next Year” from Beacon, second studio album by Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club. While not a huge departure from the original, the subtle electronics encapsulate Pyramid’s unique style of harnessing an 80′s electro/pop vibe and exposing the fantastic vocals of Alex Trimble. This rendition takes a turn for the better in one of the best outro pieces we have heard so far. Listen below.
Couldn’t be happier to see this collaboration. Both Hoodie Allen and Chiddy (of Chiddy Bang) have been working the music scene from the bottom up in an aggressive grass roots manner, building up their fan base with the power of free music and support from the entire music blogosphere. Rivaling each other topping the Hype Machine music charts, the two are staying true the the very title of Hoodie’s latest single “Fame Is For Assholes” by putting fame aside and working together on a track that stays true to each of their styles. Hoodie Explains:
I wanted to write a track that mixed a classic doo-wop vibe with the more upbeat hip-hop style that my fans have come to love
‘Fame is For Assholes’ (prod. by !llmind and Jared Evan) will be included on Hoodie Allen’s free mixtape dropping February 20th.
