If you aren’t hopping on every Fox Stevenson release, you’re doing it wrong. There are a lot of good producers out there, but this cat is the real deal when it comes to being a well-rounded musician. And he just released a single with Disciple Recordings. Things don’t get much better than this match up.
As a part of the third volume of the label’s Disciple Alliance compilation, “Rocket” was released to the world on September 12th. Fox brings his top-notch song-writing skills to the table in conjunction with his supreme sound design talents. Right from the get-go, you’ll be into this one. There’s no waiting for something. It starts off enticing. It continues to get more and more enticing until you are headbanging like there’s no tomorrow. Some dubstep tracks are a bit harder to dance to, but this one has that groove that you look for in an exceptional dance record. Fox wouldn’t leave you hanging, as his shows are packed with a variety of individuals, from the loyal bassheads to the kandi kids. Give it a listen and head to the digital store of your choice for a copy. You won’t regret it.
Did you know that India has a new age National song? Well, now you do. SHIVV, an artist some Americans were introduced to on the main stage at Ultra, created the single “Vande Mataram” featuring Viraj Bahri that has made so much noise in the artist’s home country that people are starting to take serious notice elsewhere.
“Vande Mataram” has been the National Song of India for some time, but now it’s gotten an update by SHIVV who brings the single into contemporary times with a strong melodic makeover. It must have been a daunting task, attempting to re-imagine such a powerful song, but not only does SHIVV do that; he created a music video for the song to celebrate the continued independence of India. “Vande Mataram” can be translated to “long live the mother[land” or “I bow down to thee, Mother.” SHIVV and Viraj really did a tremendous job getting this project together, and the result is something that can live on to represent their home country with style and grace. Check out the music video below, and head over to iTunes if you would like a copy of the song.

The British poet Alfred Tennyson famously once wrote “Tis better to have loved and lost, Than never to have loved at all.” Many of us have gone through the difficult time of having lost an important relationship in our lives, whether it be with a friend, significant other or even family member. Protohype‘s single with Malcom Anthony, “Lights On” shares the sentiments of being in such a situation, but now the song has a music video to go along with it.
Within the video we see what happens when a person loses something they once loved, in particular, a significant other. From the moment it’s over, through the phase of reliving those cherished moments to the hard times of waiting for them to come back, this video covers it all. It even dives into both perspectives, to paint a real picture that will hit right at home for may viewers. Not only is it a great video, but the song is just as powerful. “Lights On” is a part of Puppy Crew, which can currently be purchased through digital stores. Lastly, Protohype and Firepower Records are currently holding a creative contest for fans to show what they leave the light on for. Submit your video via Instagram by using the hashtag #ProtohypeLightsOn.
Russia’s favorite pirate, Brig, has made his return to Daily Earfood with his newest EP, Summer Melancholy. Two months ago, Brig had a few single releases come out, but now his full blown EP is here to shake the end of Summer up.
Now that Summer is coming to a close, this is the perfect time for a project by the name of Summer Melancholy. Despite the second half of its name, the EP boasts a tone that is more in line with the current season. Lighthearted synths blaze a trail through four singles that have Brig pushing a more future bass and 8bit style than his usual heavy sound. With the opening song, we’re instantly met with devouring piano chords then quickly move into a bass-driven single that certainly lives up to the fact that it is the title track. “Extreme” comes next with a burst of energy that makes it one of the best tunes off the project. Both “Kingdom” and “Wake Up” are grand creations, but we feel that the first half of the EP is a tad bit stronger than the second half. All four great singles, so don’t be skipping any. Check them out below and if you would like to grab the EP, you can do so for free!
