[Bass] Fytch – Sirens Over Paris

Sirens Over Paris

When great tragedy happens in the world, music is often the place that best conveys the deep emotions that are too difficult to put into words. The chilling events that took place in Paris in November 2015 were one of the defining moments in recent history, creating a numbing sense of shock that will forever stay etched in the minds of all those who witnessed it. While one could never imagine the fear of being present in such a situation, French producer Fytch has crafted a song which so powerfully expresses the overwhelming melancholy that still lingers over the memory of this day.

The haunting intro to ‘Sirens Over Paris’ could easily deceive the listener into expecting a full-blown metal track, and yet the force behind this one lies not with shredding guitars and growling vocals, but a wave of aggressive electronic bass that embodies the immensity of that moment in time. This clash of genres is a potent experience in its own right, but together with the weight of the events it describes makes the feeling ever more lasting beyond the sounds that resonate from our speakers. It’s no easy task to compose music that reflects on the gravity of the Paris tragedy, but the result here is something that won’t fail to cause goosebumps each and every time it is heard.

[Dubstep] Vaski – Perculator

Night Sessions Square
VASKI
Perculator [NEST HQ Premiere]

Fans of Vaski are in for a real treat. In fact, they are in for several treats as the Los Angeles resident is gearing up for the launch of his album entitled Night Sessions. The first single off the project, “Perculator,” has the producer going back in line with a dubstep style that captivated much of his early followers. Although it’s an homage to sounds of the past, he still manages to keep a certain freshness instilled in it to make it a big 2016 single.

Vaski has been playing this one out live for some time, with great reactions from the crowd, and soon they will be able to have it for themselves. It’s got the big basslines you look for in a dub track, partnered with the vicious percussion and spazzy blips that have seemingly drown out of popular dance music these days. Nest HQ got a hold of the premiere for this song, which is due out when the album drops. Fans and Vaski are excited as ever, as the producer states that he has finally found his own sound that he will be delivering to the world in this project. Stay tuned!

Flux Pavilion and Matthew Koma – Emotional (G Buck Remix Feat. OnCue) [TMN PREMIERE]

Flux Pavilion and Matthew Koma
Emotional (G-Buck Remix feat. OnCue)

Just a few days ago, we brought you an exclusive interview with our Resident Artist of the Month – the legendary Flux Pavilion. Early on in that interview, we brought up one of our favorite songs from his recently released album. Which one, you ask? “Emotional,” which features vocals from dance music journeyman Matthew Koma.

Originally sporting a tasty future bass styling, today’s premiere brings an entirely new persona via Philly-based DJ/producer G Buck. Roping in some additional vocals from Brooklyn resident OnCue, the two have crafted a tune that not only pays an artful homage to the original, but also to Flux’s iconic sound as well.

Alongside well-crafted samples of Koma’s original lyrics and the added vocal flair from OnCue, this remix also boasts some impressive percussion work, a head-banging bassline, and memorable, razor-sharp synths. All of those elements culminate effortlessly, providing listeners with something that’s both cooler than the other side of the pillow and perfectly aggressive for any upcoming late-night endeavors.

Flux Pavilion discusses Tesla, The Continued Success of “I Can’t Stop,” and Balvenie 15 Year Single Barrel

flux press shot 2015

Continuing along in our monthlong highlight of this legendary producer, we’ve finally arrived on the portion that we’ve been looking forward to the most – an exclusive interview with Mr. Flux Pavilion himself. As we’re sure you’re just as excited as we are, we’ll let you dive right in.

TMN: Hey, Flux! Thank you so much for being our Resident Artist of the Month. In all honesty, it’s kind of difficult to figure out where to start, given everything that you’ve accomplished through the years. But, why don’t we kick it off with Tesla, which just dropped a few months ago. The album somewhat reminded us of hip hop albums in the late 90s/early 2000s, in the sense that you had a collaborator on almost every track. How did you go about selecting them?

FP:​ Firstly, thanks for making me Artist of the month! I think in this day and age, there is so much speed and movement when it comes to how we consume music, and as artists, we gotta stay on top of things. When I write, I tend to just keep writing as long as I have ideas, which also include sessions and collaborations. Then, the best stuff I work on turns into a project, in this instance, Tesla, is the best of what I have been working on for the past year. ​

TMN: One of our favorites on the album was definitely “Emotional,” which features the seasoned Matthew Koma. We couldn’t help but notice some future bass elements in there. Is this a world you’re going to delve into more?

FP:​ I’m just in the world of making music. I don’t really see music that way. ​

’Flux Pavilion and Matthew Koma – Emotional’

TMN: Following up on that, there are many different influences throughout the whole album. We hear some reggae in “International Anthem,” some 80’s hip hop in “We Are Creators,” and trap in “Who Wants to Rock.” Do you approach the album as a whole, wanting to include some of each, or do those tracks just naturally come up?

Today’s a huge day for Pegboard Nerds‘ fans across the globe. Even though Black Friday and Cyber Monday are well behind us, this Scandanavian duo is apparently still in the giving spirit, offering up both a new song releases and a new music video, all in the same day.

Following up Pink Cloud EP, which has raised an eye-opening $35,000 for Fuck Cancer, “Emoji” falls into line with what the fans have come to know and love. It’s playful, yet doesn’t ease up through the drops, providing plenty of authentic, razor-sharp synths, and heavy bass. And, as we mentioned before, Alex and Michael paired up today’s release with a music video directed by Patrick Jean, who’s short film “Pixels,” spawned the Hollywood blockbuster starring Adam Sandler.

As you’re already aware, we typically don’t post music videos, but this is well-deserved. The creative take on an aspect of pop culture that’s seemingly everywhere not only matches with their lighthearted personalities but also carries the story of “Emoji” quite perfectly.

After you watch, head over to our friends at Cadence & Cause for your chance to win a pair of limited edition Pink Cloud V-Moda headphones, a signed Pink Cloud poster, or a Google Hangout sesh with the Nerds. The proceeds go directly to providing women with cancer detection, prevention, and emotional support.
