[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.

[Electro] Howwler – Chapter One. EP

There’s a new act that has come into play that isn’t messing around. Howwler is the mystifying producer who’s debut EP will rock your world. With just two tracks Howwler establishes himself as a person of extreme interest for lovers of bass music.

Chapter One. brings a heavy, midtempo electro sound with each track. What makes this an extraordinary one-two punch is that despite their similar styles, Howwler gives two distinct tracks that weren’t simply thrown together. As with his entire project, there’s vision with each move. It will be interesting to see where things go, but as of now it looks like Howwler has put his best foot forward first. Take a listen to Chapter One. today and grab a copy if you dig what you’re hearing.

’Midnight’
’Signs & Wonders’

[Electronic] Dead Battery – Seeing Red EP

When I sit down to listen to music I don’t generally go for the harder, darker side of things, but I couldn’t help but to enjoy Dead Battery‘s new EP. Seeing Red is a dynamic concept EP that was released on Kannibalen Records this week with six distinct singles.

Dead Battery doesn’t go for the usual sounds you’d expect from a bass producer. Instead he does his own thing and focuses in on great songwriting to elevate his work. He has his own style that he blends in with drum & bass, electro and dubstep throughout the album, but it’s not like anything I’ve heard before. It stuck out to me and I hope it does the same for you. Get a copy of the EP today.

’Dead Battery – All I See Is Red’
’Dead Battery – Imperial Red’
’Dead Battery – Indian Red’
’Dead Battery – Coral Red’
’Dead Battery – Dark Red’
’Dead Battery – Blood Red’

He’s an all in one package that has a great future ahead of him if he keeps up the great work that he’s already accomplished, especially with Falsework.

TMN: Was music a large part of your childhood?

Oh yes! Some of my earliest memories were sitting on the bench of my parents’ baby grand, or playing with the rhythm machine on our electronic keyboard. Over the years, my family accumulated instruments, like a C3 organ, accordion, drum set, and guitars. My brother is the guitar player, and my dad plays piano, so I’d take the drums and the three of us would jam all the time! When we weren’t jamming together, I’d be on our home computer recording music on Garageband. On top of that, I was lucky enough to take piano, saxophone, and voice lessons for long periods of time. I had a really rounded musical childhood that exposed me to different styles of music and different ways to create it. I was a lucky kid!

TMN: Did you have any “a-ha” moment where you realized you loved and wanted to pursue music?

Not really. Some bright moments in high school stand out, but it was mostly just the sheer volume and variety of musical memories that pushed me towards it. I’ve always been doing it, and I genuinely can’t imagine not pursuing it in some fashion for the rest of my life.

TMN: When did you get comfortable putting your music out there and how to did you get past that initial phase?

I’ve been “releasing” music basically since I started producing/songwriting back in 2006, but by releasing, I mean handing out burnt CDs to my friends. I probably finished around 100-150 songs in the seven years before I started working on my first official release/album,, Past the Hypothetical. Back then, it was very casual and unacademic. Lots of transcribing and recording Frank Sinatra arrangements (yes, the whole big band), recording covers of my favorite rock/pop songs, and writing the worst originals I’ll ever write. But looking back, I think the variety of the music I produced helped expand my production sensibilities and the ability to finish full songs, rather than just fragments.

Getting back to your question though – I think what made me comfortable enough to fully distribute my first album was the fact that the songs came from a very honest place. I also thought that they were at least semi-professional sounding. I spent so much time making that first album, and the whole time with the intent of releasing it. While the production (particularly the mixing) is subpar to my production standards today, I’m still proud of the compositions on the album, and I’m so glad I got “past the hypothetical” and released it!

TMN: How do your previous EPs different from this one?

Great question! Now that some time has passed between my Fiction and Purpose EPs, it’s easy for me to distinguish them. In my opinion, Fiction is the most “poppy” of the three. It’s a concept album about a failed relationship, and love is a typical subject for pop.. On top of that, it’s mostly lighter in energy and sound design, and doesn’t really have any jarring moments throughout the whole EP. In comparison, Purpose has the heavier, more complex sound design. Coupled with the introspective lyrics, I think Purpose is more of an electronic dance music fan’s EP. I’d consider Falsework to be more similar to Purpose than it is to Fiction, but it’s much more eclectic than Purpose. I consciously tried to incorporate as many different styles as I could naturally write, so I ended up with a record that has a lot of influences.

TMN: Any cool Adam Tell things going on besides music releases?

Not a whole lot! Mostly just settling into my career as a CPA and trying to not spend all of my income on plugins and equipment! I did just finish my first live show at 515 Alive, and I’m planning on performing more after I get some time to focus on producing again.

TMN: If you could throw a tour together, who would be the dream team featured on it?

This is an easy one. If we’re going full dream team, I’d no doubt choose to support Imogen Heap on tour. That would be the absolute top. But here on planet Earth, I’d be really honored to tour with Fox Stevenson, Chime, and a lot of other musicians that I’ve been meeting lately!

TMN: Are you slowing down or speeding up in terms of content as we head toward 2018?

I’ve just released ten songs in the last two months, so I’m hoping that that keeps my fans happy for a little while! But I’ve got a couple more collaborations in the making that I’m expecting to have out by the end of the year. As for 2018, I’m going to be trying new styles, and the plan is to speed up, for sure. I recently switched to Ableton from Logic, and it’s already changing the way I produce and improving my efficiency. Oh, and I’d love to start writing for media in 2018 if I can get the opportunities.

[Electro] GRiZ – My Friends & I Ft. ProbCause (Dusty Bits Remix)

GRiZ
My Friends & I Ft. ProbCause (Dusty Bits Remix)

Our favorite breakbeaters Dusty Bits just came through with something super hot, as usual. The special thing this time around is that they’ve released an official remix for the one and only GRiZ. The duo took on “My Friends & I” featuring ProbCause and flipped it into an electro beast.

Dusty Bits keeps things funky in their own unique way. “My Friends & I” in its new form has a bubbly, bouncy quality that just calls for one to dance. It’s nearly inescapable. Dusty Bits have put out incredible remixes before, but in being commissioned for something this big in official capacity, they didn’t waver in delivering something that stands above the rest of their own work, as well as much of the remix LP, which is saying a lot given the high quality remixes throughout the entire project. Have a listen today and get yourself a copy on digital platforms.
