[Dubstep] Sam Lamar – Belial

Dubstep never died, but it certainly wasn’t as hype as it once was. If you’ve been checking out the bass scene lately, you know it’s making a comeback. Here to add to the lot of new records fitting that sound is Sam Lamar, whose new single “Belial” was released on WOLV Records.

Sam brings those deep guttural growls that every bass lover desires. Before we get to the heavy bass though, Sam put together an uplifting introduction that really sets the tone perfect before the drop. With the juxtaposing sounds, once the bass comes in it’s augmented. “Belial” reminds me of some of the best records from great producers like Spag Heddy and EH!DE who have been pushing the genre, in particular this style, for years. Sam Lamar shows he’s someone who can play with the big dogs. This is his first song, so that has us pretty excited for the future. “Belial” is now available for purchase on Beatport, so if you like it, we suggest you grab it and stay tuned for what this Montreal producer has coming next.

[TMN Premiere] PACES – Work Me Out (Moonbase Commander Remix)

PACES-Work-Me-Out-2016
Paces
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.

[Event Preview] The 2Courtiers Present: The Festival Fashion Show – Phoenix, Arizona – 5/20

The Festival Fashion Flyer

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 Electronic Music Culture is centered around compassion and reaching higher. We believe that Music is not only a way to celebrate, but a way to connect and develop. The emerging field of Music Therapy is proving this science, and we will succeed in Phoenix Children’s hospital and all their patients experiencing music for its tangible health benefits.

This five-hour event will take place at Live on Central on May 20th, 2016.

[Multi-Genre] Sebrus – The Beginning EP

Sebrus

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.
