[Electronic] JETSET – Mayday EP

When JETSET was releasing singles over the last month, I thought I had the direction of the EP pinned down. To my surprise, JETSET went a very different way, accenting his previously released singles with unique instrumentals that are more orchestral than electronic.

Mayday has been released as a group of free downloads. His heavier tracks like “Bloke Patrol” and “Sawed Off” are the real party starters, with dirty basses that will blow any crowd away. Throughout the EP JETSET adds in instrumentation that is more like something you’d hear from a composer, showing off songwriting abilities that go beyond many producers. To cap off the EP, he mixes the two styles evenly with “Finale” featuring jvnk. Mayday is a testament to what producers should be doing – creating unique works of art instead of just doing what other people are doing.

’Walking Backwards’
’Rain (feat. osotyt)’
’Bloke Patrole’
’Abyss (The Heavens)’
’Sawed Off’
’Finale (feat. JVNK)’

[Multi-Genre] Tiigers – Belial/Takedown

The Italian duo Tiigers recently dropped two heaters through MA Music. Their ferocious A/B side project is good step in the right direction and happens to be one their debut EP. Coming off a free download a couple months ago, this is the duo’s first official release.

“Belial” comes in as the A-side track, pushing forth a hybrid bass sound mixing trap with heavier elements of dubstep. It really showcases where Tiigers can go with their sound. “Takedown” shifts the sound a bit to the house realm, delivering an electro single. Although the song takes you through another sound, it centers upon the electro style that brought so many into dance music. Stream both today and grab a copy of the EP from digital stores.

[Dubstep] Al Ross – Boneless

Al Ross
Boneless

There is a whole lot going on for team Buygore. They have releases coming all the time and have expanded with the creation of FrshBlood, a sub-imprint focused on names in bass music that need highlighting. One of those names is Al Ross, who dropped his single “Boneless” as a free download through the label to celebrate his signing to their roster.

“Boneless” is a gut-wrenching dubstep track that will leave you shaken to your core. Heavy isn’t even the half of it with this immense single that should come with a warning stamp. Perhaps the fact that FrshBlood released this one is warning enough; this sort of earth-shaking sound is to be expected from their catalog. Speaking of catalog, theirs is set to grow with the coming of their third compilation this October 10th. In honor of the compilation release there will be a FrshBlood showcase party at the Belasco in Los Angeles the following day. Don’t miss out on it, get your tickets today!

Get To Know FLTHY ANMLZ Before Everyone Else Does [TMN Interview + Mix]

FLTHY ANMŁZ
FLTHY Guest Mix

Bass music is here to stay. The ever-evolving blanket genre has been expanding into new territories for as long as we can remember. There are so many talented new artists coming to the fold, but we’ve got our eyes and ears on FLTHY ANMLZ.

To help you get familiar, we brought these bass-loving boys into the dojo to answer some questions. On top of that, they’ve brought an exclusive mix to the table for everyone to enjoy. With it we get thirty minutes of jaw-dropping bass. Some of that is made up by tracks from FLTHY ANMLZ themselves. Let’s get down to business and see what FLTHY ANMLZ is all about and where they came from.

TMN: What got you each into music? How did you end up together as FLTHY ANMLZ?

FA: We’ve been really good friends since 7th grade and after High School we both really got into DJing and going to Electronic Music Shows. We were so hooked on the scene that we had to take the next step and try our hands at producing our own stuff. We both did our own thing for a little while but as time went on we discovered we had very similar tastes and started producing a lot together. Soon after we started playing together and eventually we just decided that two heads are better than one and why not produce and DJ together.

TMN: How did you come up with your name?

FA: A lot of our very first remixes, flips, etc. had samples from the original Home Alone movie. The part where Kevin uses the old movie to talk to the pizza guy. We sampled the part where it says, “keep the change ya filthy animal!” and used it numerous times in different works. We liked it so much and it fit our style so well we decided to name our project after it.. FLTHY ANMLZ was born.

TMN: If you could sum up your sound in 3 words, what would they be?

FA: Filthy Hybrid Bass

TMN: If you could collaborate with any artists, who would you pick?

There’s so many amazing artists we’d love to work with. But just to name a few: LUMBERJVCK, JPhlepz, BTSM, WOOLYMAMMOTH, Holly, G JONES, and Mr. Carmack.

TMN: Where do you see bass music headed and how do you see yourselves fitting into that progression?

FA: The cool thing about bass music sound is that its always evolving. As far as sub genre’s go, what’s big now is pretty much here to stay for a long time to come. There’s some artists out there that are really doing there own thing as far as sound design goes and we really hope to carve out our own niche in that some day.

TMN: Let’s get more technical on this next one, what’s your go to plug-in and why?

FA: Serum is the go to right now. You can create anything from scratch in there or you can go to town on an existing audio clip, preset, etc. There’s still so much to learn about it too so thats pretty awesome that theres room to improve on our use of it.

TMN: What can we expect from FLTHY ANMLZ for the rest of 2017?

FA: Hopefully we can establish releases with some really solid labels by the end of the year and keep building on the brand we’ve started. That is our major goal right now. You can definitely be expecting more music from us thats for certain. We’re also working on booking some big shows so we can rinse out some of our unreleased arsenal we’ve been sitting on.

Kompany & G-Rex Drop Collab & 10 Production Tips [TMN Interview]

Kompany & G-REX
Downfall

If you’ve got the sauce, there should be no downfall. The only exception to this comes from Kompany and G-Rex whose newest single “Downfall” has been released as a free download. Not only have they delivered a whopping bass beast, but they entered the dojo for a little something extra.

As two of bass music’s most promising up and comers, they’ve put in the time and diligence to get where they are today. Their rise can be attributed to amazing works like “Downfall” but those tracks come from honing in the skills at home or in the studio. That’s why we sat down with them to get five production tips from each of the boys. While you enjoy their boisterous hit, read through their advice and get to work on your next hit!

Kompany:
1. Find your sound. Experiment with your own style of synthesis or resampling techniques and really drive that home so you have something recognizable to your songs.

2. Take time to dial in your drums. Even one small adjustment to your hi-hats/kick and snare can change the energy of your entire track.

3. Find the weakest point in your production and spend a whole entire month or so focusing strictly on that.

4. Be patient with your releases! Build a catalog of impressive music to pitch to your favorite labels. Make it all cohesive if possible.

5. Put in the hours. There are no shortcuts and if you put in every free hour you have into production you will grow at an exceptionally fast rate.

G-Rex:
1. Don’t Sleep on your DAWs native plugin. Having tons and tons of VSTs is awesome but most of the time the presets in your DAWs native plugins can do the same thing. Just become aware of what they all do and how they can be used.

2. Make your own sample pack to use. Making your own sample pack with your go-to samples will speed up your work flow and help you continue to build on your sound.

3. Keep your sample library organized. This will also help when with workflow and speed of production. Proper labeling will help with searching in your Daw when your looking for that perfect sample.

4. Experiment. There really is no rules when it comes to producing. Never box yourself in. The more time you invest experimenting the more you will learn about your production style and will eventually fall into production routines that will end up leading to your “sound.”

5. Have your palette ready going into writing. I have sat down countless times excited to write something new and just haven’t known where to start or end up with just a loop. It is a lot easier to start with a painters perspective. get some samples, presets, and vocal ideas that fit the vibe/idea of what you want to write, throw them in your DAW, and start arranging them into a full song.
