Was it just us or were there a ton of awesome records that came out this week? This time around, our Friday Party Playlist is all party, no pre-game. We get straight into things with some heavy trap records and move into some fist-pumping house records of various styles. We top it of with some hybrid/dubstep tracks from the likes of EH!DE and Festivillainz. Before we meet those bassheads, we’re meeting up with the likes of Juke Ellington, Snavs, 5 & A Dime, Wiwek and more. They all are joining us in the dojo for some irresponsible dancing this Friday, and you can take the party with you throughout the entire weekend. As always, each of the tracks in our collection can be downloaded for free, so grab the ones that get you going wild. Have fun and #danceirresponsible.

Work Me Out [ft. Rye Rye] (Moonbase Commander Remix)
Sydney based, genre-skirting producer Moonbase Commander seemingly bubbled up out of the ether with a clearly defined and polished sound on his collab with Cakes Da Killa for their 2015 single “Serve it Up”, which received quite the reputable slate of critical support when it first made the rounds. In the time since, the Australian artist’s been continuously honing that sound, with the recent release of the Southpaw EP on October Records, which only seemed to elevate the collective appetites of his listeners. So, when the Commander’s latest tune floated our way in the form of a remix for fellow TMN regulars PACES and their Rye Rye featuring single “Work Me Out”, we were like giddy cheerleaders before a pep rally.
On his latest record, Moonbase Commander trots out a hypnotically knocking kick-drum, fueled by alchemistic pads, before delving into a heap of two-step drum patterning which holds up Rye Rye’s flitty cypher as if it were resting on a bed of anthracite storm clouds. MBC’s bass-first soundscape toys with stadium-trap sized bass swells, gigantic drums and loopy synths; all pulled off with the confident swagger of an underground beatsmith and grace of an established veteran. Quite appetizing stuff really. Moonbase Commander’s remix comes as part of etcetc music‘s official remix package which is out this Friday (preorder on iTunes here). Just try not to get your lean on too hard and throw out your back to this one, and enjoy Moonbase Commander’s “Work Me Out” remix before anyone else above.
If you’ve ever been to a festival, we’re pretty damn sure you’ve looked through your closet a week before the event, realizing you should have picked up some new threads before you embark on your musical journey. By that time, you’re up against the sizable task of researching brands, ordering quickly, and paying extra for next day shipping. This May, you can get ahead of the curve by checking out some of the industry’s best at The Festival Fashion Show in Phoenix, Arizona.
Hosted by The 2Courtiers, this event promises to showcase not only some solid gear from the top festival brands on the West Coast but also some fresh beats from both local and national acts. At the bottom of the post, we’ve included a sampling from DJ Geronimo, founder of “Tempe Ecstatic Dance”, Jeremiah Christo, founder of Soullective, Kyle Redman AKA DJ Pokoj, founder of Scottsdale Nights. Along with fashion, some dancy tunes, and some adult libations, you can also expect an artful curation of other experiential elements, including flow art, sound meditation, and plenty of theatrics from the presenters.
Included in this experience are our friends at Cadence & Cause, who have partnered up with Lyle and Sam of The 2Courtiers to bring a charitable element to the show. Fans can head over to the site right now to enter for a chance to win a ticket package, or a VIP Experience, which features tickets and energizing massages backstage. The majority of what you contribute, alongside a portion of all ticket sales, will go to benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s interactive music therapy program. Check out what Lyle Maxson had to say about this initiative:
This five-hour event will take place at Live on Central on May 20th, 2016.
One of Belgium’s best new acts is Sebrus. Formed out of the disbandment of the Ravolution duo, Sebrus is here to bring quality bass records to the scene, without care for sticking with one certain genre. He previously came out with a single, but now his The Beginning EP is out in full, for free.
The three track EP delves into sounds ranging from dubstep to breakbeat and drum & bass. Sebrus is establishing himself as a true creative in the bass music scene, putting together records that have classic sensibilities, while also bringing the various sounds he takes from forward into new places. Take “DHBN” for instance, whose Snails’ influenced sound takes the vomitstep ideology to a whole new level. Sebrus continues with his top notch sound design through both “The Beginning” and “Time,” although the former flexes his skills a bit more. Check out the full EP below, and don’t forget to download the entire EP for free. Lookout for more music soon, as Sebrus is just getting things going and is looking to make 2016 a big kick off year.
Weekend 1 of Coachella is here. Unfortunately, not all of us will be in attendance. For those of you who won’t be there, we have some festival tracks for you in lieu of the event. If you are attending, chances are you’ll have some solid travel time, so these records will help you there also. In this week’s volume of the Friday Party Playlist, we dug a little deeper and focused in on some hard hitting and heavy tracks for you. As usual, we do start off with some chiller sounds from KickRaux and Choppa Dunks, but then we quickly pick up the pace. There are several incredible house tracks this week, ranging from indie dance, to progressive to electro. After that, we hit you with some ferocious bass tracks, including a huge Play Me Records release from Eliminate. Check out all twelve free downloads, and whether you’re at Coachella or not, just make sure to #danceirresponsibly
Simone (Cabu Remix)’
There’s one record label out there that is really starting to make some waves out there with unique sounds form hidden gem artists. That label is Terrorhythm. Most recently this London label put out an EP called Meltdown from the Australian ZEKE BEATS. ZEKE’s already had releases with Slow Roast, Saturate and more, but his EP with Terrorhythm is his best work yet.
Meltdown is comprised of four records that formulate a special mixture of dubstep, trap, trip-hop and more into one project. The title track comes first with an aggressive grit that will satisfy any basshead out there. Next he gets a bit more gamer influenced with “The Freq” and gets dirty with “BDSM” that is one of the only tracks that the squeak sample is appropriate for. “Virtual Purple” closes out the EP with its thugged out sound. All four tracks are hits in and of themselves, and together in one package they make for quite an extraordinary extended listen.
