The mysterious Captain Murphy, best known for his work with Flying Lotus, is one of the first of likely many rappers to hop on an instrumental from Hudson Mohawke and Lunice‘s standout electro-trap TNGHT EP. On “Shake Weight,” which was tweeted out by HudMo earlier today, Murphy’s versatile vocals perfectly match the intensity and bounciness of “Bugg’n.” The TNGHT duo have already expressed a desire to work with hip-hop artists and this is a pretty cool glimpse into the potential collaboration across the genres.
Stream and download this high octane cut below and make sure to check out the TNGHT EP if you haven’t yet given it a listen.
Attention all bassheads! Today we’ve got some pure dubstep filth to satisfy your every need. Getter, AKA Tanner Petulla, is an up-and-coming producer who is quickly becoming a household name for producing grimy dubstep littered with heavy bass and grinding synths. “Swine,” the title track off his EP of the same name showcases this expertise. The dark synth work and vocal samples create a truly monstrous tune, so CAUTION: this is not for the faint of heart!
If you’re a fan, check out the rest of the EP on Beatport and don’t forget to show Getter some love on Facebook.
The Irish trio, Two Door Cinema Club, stormed the alternative music scene in 2010 with their debut album Tourist History, instantly becoming everyone’s favorite indie dance-pop band. Since then, the question that has been on every fan’s mind is, “What will they do next?”
It’s been a long time coming, but finally TDCC has released new music in the form of “Sleep Alone,” the first single from their upcoming album Beacon. “Sleep Alone” is much like their previous work: intricate electric guitar picking over a dance beat, mixed with insanely catchy choruses. But there is also a new synthy sound in the background. Even more recently released is the accompanying music video, featuring some flying beds and massive guitars.
It seems that the new album has the potential to be very good. As good as Tourist History? We’ll see. Beacon is set to drop in the UK on September 3 via Kitsuné and in the US on September 4 via Glassnote Records.
Dillon Francis just turns the world on its end every chance he gets: from his habit of replacing cat faces with his face, putting his face on other people’s faces, but most importantly, his habit of producing songs to the most epic of degrees. Taking the young Frenchman’s already impressive track, “Finale,” then throwing on his usual flavor of unrelenting pace. The combination of the original containing a strong electro feel then adding on Dillon’s taste for giving any and every track a hefty dose of chest pounding beef really turns this tune on its head. The song will be avaliable to download on beatport August 16th.
Holy fuckin’ shit, ninjas. We can’t believe it’s been 15 weeks already. That means we’ve taken part in 15 epic weekends, and most likely been to blame for 15 epic hangovers. That’s alright, hangovers come and go, but legendary evenings are few and far between. Let’s just hope you can remember their awesomeness.
Ok, so last week I had to take a mini break, and Blas Yaselli stepped in to knock it out of the park. Big ups to him for filling in for me, but I am back, and so is the party. Press play, and get down!
Collaborating with designers including Nike, New Era and Kidrobot is not the only reason why this certain individual is well-recognized. Along with being the co-founder of the Brooklyn-based record label Fool’s Gold, A-Trak has taken a huge role in producing the label’s unique sound, which melds the best of both worlds together – EDM and hip-hop music. Kid Cudi and Duck Sauce are among many prevailing artists introduced by Fool’s Gold Record Label.
This new August 2012 mix is testimony to A-Trak’s admired electronic-remixing skills (examples being his remixes for “Heads will Roll” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Solveig‘s “The Night Out”). Kicking off with a spin on the intro to Style of Eye‘s techno track, “Ray Dee Oh,” you can except to be surprised and impressed by the additions of upbeat summer tracks including Gregor Salto‘s “Azumba” as well as…
…the beef, the chicken, the fish, the lamb, the water, the milk, the cheese, the carrot…
That’s right, even Guetta‘s “Atomic Food”.

New Clockwork, you say? A couple days ago, New York-based up-and-comer Henry Steinway, or Clockwork as he is better known, dropped his anticipated Titan EP on Mad Decent Records. For lack of better a description, here’s one, encapsulating word for that release: Quality. Just quality, my friends.
Being the forefront track of an EP is a big responsibility, but as the name implies, “Titan” is one colossal of a Clockwork creation. Venturing into the land of dirty dutch, the track will have you bleepity bloppin’ all over the dance floor with its high-pitched synths, its catchy, simplistic melody, and bangin’, hard-hitting Clockwork-style bass. Ba da ba da badabada, ba da ba da badew…
Track numero dos on the EP is “BBBS” or “Big Bad Bassline Song”! By the beard of Zeus, this track is huge… Not even 30 seconds in, we are confronted by a gritty, underlying bassline that soon leads into a refreshingly exotic, tribal-infused melody. Hold it together a little while longer, and the track drops hard into a body-rocking, bass-fueled production that will no doubt have you flailing your body in all sorts of questionable ways.
Clockwork’s Titan EP is out now on Mad Decent, and is available for digital purchase on both Beatport and Itunes. Please show the man some love – he dun’ gone deserves it.
