Out last month on Noisia‘s Division Recordings, the debut album from Neosignal is a force of nature. An interesting mix of glitch-hop, dubstep, techno and DnB, the 15 track LP is diverse yet tied together by the duo’s hardcore German aesthetic that is unequalled is sound or style. “Raum und Zeit,” which is german for ‘time and space’, already has support from the likes of Amon Tobin, Skrillex and Noisia and with no signs of slowing down it will be interesting to see what these guys come out with next. One thing is certain though, their live show is gonna be dope and I can’t wait to see them stateside!

Melding dub, reggae, acid, trap, electro and everything in between; David Heartbreak stretches his musical roots with an incredibly diverse and engaging sonic pallet.

In anticipation for his debut EP on Always Never, Crywolf has continued along his recent path of free releases and dropped his first single from the EP for free download on his Soundcloud. The track, entitled “The Moon Is Falling Down”, is a valiant introduction into Crywolf’s EP, showing off the vibe and extension of Crywolf’s production styles. A haunting and soft melody aided by vocals from Charity Lane (who appears on his previous free giveaway, “Silence Pt. II“) drops into a crashing and cascading drop that brings a surprising adrenaline rush to the track.
You can listen to and download the track below, as well as purchase the whole EP on iTunes, Beatport, and pretty much every other place you buy music. Click after the jump to stream the rest of the tracks on the album as well!
After releasing his remix of The Neighbourhood’s “Sweater Weather,” Vaski quickly follows up with a brand new original in collaboration with Betty Borderline on vocals. “Baddest” is a fusion of house and dubstep driven by a gritty bassline, tribal drums, and Betty’s call-to-action lyrics. Vaski continues on his venture in the more up-tempo realm without diminishing his bass-heavy roots. Purchase “Baddest” on Beatport and keep an eye out for a remix competition.
