insomniac_records_2017_edc_mexico_compilation_artwork_10x10_r01_v04

EDC Mexico is having more than just the festival. As a part of the experience, the people over at Insomniac have put together the festival compilation, featuring a multitude of talented artists from the lineup. One of the songs on the project, “TLC,” is by El Dusty and DJ Blass. Instead of waiting for the full compilation to be out, we partnered up with them on giving you a first listen through this premiere.

“TLC” is a Latin flavored house record that is sure to go off well with the massive crowds down in Mexico. The deep, groovy style makes this one perfect for clubs, but it’s got enough energy and power to satisfy all the ravers in the festival atmosphere. It’s nice to hear something a bit different, but given the festival we’re focusing on, it’s a perfect match. The full EDC Mexico compilation will be out on February 17th, with works from the likes of Kayzo, UNIIQU3, G-Buck, Happy Colors and more.

[Trap] Ryden – Murderer

Murderer

Ryden is back. Every time she comes out with something, our eyes and ears are at the ready. Today she kicks up an interesting tune for the holiday called “Murderer” that is anything but your average V-Day song. In fact, she’s deemed it an “anti-love” song, paying it forward to people in need of their own individual breakthroughs.

With Ryden, you can always expect true art. Her creations are filled with her own experiences in life, something some creators aren’t too open about doing; or if they do, they water things down a bit to fit the mold they are going for. Ryden and especially “Murderer” aren’t watered down a bit. With this single we get to see her usual orchestral influenced sound that is quite striking in contrast to a lot of work coming out today. She is an artist paving her own way and that’s something we can respect. Get “Murderer” today on the digital service of your choosing.

[Indie] Least Of Creatures – Candlelight

Candlelight

Seattle’s Least Of Creatures makes his Heroic Recordings debut with the single “Candlelight.” With it we get a sincere record that speaks to the soul. “Candlelight” has just been released today and by the end of this post, you’ll be wanting to grab this one online.

Sometimes when creators try and bring all the feels they can into a track, it feels a bit forced. “Candlelight” is an all natural expression that will leave a lasting impression on listeners of all demographics. Least Of Creatures isn’t your average songwriter, as we get a sense that his sound can go several ways in the future. We look forward to hearing just which ways it goes. Check out “Candlelight” today and see what the artist had to say about the song himself below.

I’m not sure if it’s distinctive but it’s honest and for the most part exactly how I intended it to be. The track is soft and emotional with a touch of illegibility. I’d like an explanation point of interest to pop above listeners heads and intrigue in my future projects.
– Least Of Creatures
