September 14, 2009. That is the date Muse The Resistance came out. Three years down the road and my impatience only has to wait 39 more days. To make the wait easier to bear the English band released Madness, their first single from their forthcoming album The 2nd Law. After putting out a triumphant song for the London Olympics this summer, excitement began to grow over the thought of the new music that was sure to come. Starting off leaning heavily on the pulsating synth, this song slowly progresses showing off the talents from all corners of the band. Taking all of four minutes to climax, it will have you waiting as impatiently as I am for the next 39 days to get here a little faster. Go to the official Muse website to pre-order your copy of The 2nd Law.
Please prepare yourself. This bootleg by Shapes of Light is about to hit you as gently as a ton of bricks. From the start the Miami and Stockholm based producers, Andrew Berman and Nicolas Russo-Larson respectively, show slight hints of the chaos that is soon to ensue. But nothing can really prepare one for what drops in at two minutes. This bootleg of Atom features a newfound filthiness that did not previously exist in this track. Throw this on your weekend track list and it will prove to be one of the quickest ways to get a crowd of people to go nuts.

Being a Top 25 Club from DJ Mag comes at no surprise as Beta Nightclub has been featuring an amazing array of talent this summer, and this weekend is once again no exception.

While hip-hop continues to lack extensive positive female representation, artists like Rapsody and Nitty Scott MC provide living proof that there is a place for lyrical, conscious ladies in the genre. On the first single from her upcoming EP “The Boombox Diaries Vol. 1,” Nitty enlists the talented, Compton-based rising star, Kendrick Lamar, to cultivate a soulful chorus and a powerful anchoring verse. “Flower Child” features a deep, west-coast bass line and some calming, jazzy piano with Nitty delivering an innovative, organic flow all the while exuding the steez and grace of a Queen Latifah. As usual, Kendrick delivers with his unique style creating vocals in perfect contrast to the instrumental.
Check out the soothing and intelligent “Flower Child” below and support this up ‘n comer by pre-ordering and copping “The Boombox Diaries Vol. 1,” due out on August 28th, on iTunes.

Spinnin’ Records newest release “BONNY” by Basto is one of the heaviest electro house songs I have heard this year. Basto has produced several electro house songs that did very well but nothing quite like this. The progression throughout “BONNY” is excellent and when the bassline finally hits, it doesn’t let up. The rhythm of the song is phenomenal even though it may feel overwhelming when the massive bassline starts up. It’s definitely going to become as staple track in a lot of club music sets.
“BONNY” is now available here on beatport.

After a brief intermission of releases, powerhouse dubstep duo Roksonix is back at it again with a new massive dubstep tune. “Get Live” is an upbeat dubstep banger that flaunts the impeccable production one can only expect from any Circus Records release. The song builds and immediately pushes the tempo with a healthy serving of bass and lasers. Turn up your speakers and let the head banging begin!
