In today’s frenetic war zone of DJs and producers and ghost-producers and managers and publicists and every other person clinging on to the
EDM machine, it’s pretty damn difficult to get noticed. For Astronomar, his brash and aggressive club music demands the respect it deserves. Back in a big, bad way is his 4 track Mutant Club EP, which dropped today on the Main Course imprint. Aside from releasing tracks on esteemed outfits like BNR & OWSLA, he’s been running the Main Course label with good pals Neoteric and Bot, who is featured on ‘Drama’ (my favorite from the package). Devoid of cheese, you’ll find drums thicker than redwoods and sound designs more manic than mental wards. And for the next month, all tracks are available for free download, so get to clicking.

This one goes from hip hop to a hurricane and the download even includes a version with a 88-128bpm transition with Pusha T’s first verse. DJs and fans alike will be all over this…
Celebrating their eighth release today, the relatively new Main Course label has firmly established themselves as one of the brightest imprints we’ve seen this year. Label boss Neoteric teams up with Australian heavy hitter Wax Motif with a seriously pounding track in Das Machines. The package also comes with a bit shorter, slightly more ‘epic’ dub that’s just as mighty. Both are available for free download, however, Main Course wants to feed their artists as well, so you also have option to support them on Beatport & iTunes if you feel up for it. For those of you in Australia, fellow Main Course label boss Astronomar is gearing up to start his tour Down Under in just a few days. More info + music video after the jump.
Main Course maestro, Astronomar, just sent over the latest offering from his newly launched label last night — a 2-track EP from Italian producer His Majesty Andre who is showcasing a new style and sound via this release. The A-side “Sunshine” features the beautiful vocals of GDD™ favorite Anna Lunoe, and don’t be confused by the song title as HMA and Anna have brought “Sunshine” into a dark place with deep bass and filters ready for the club. “Moonlight” serves as the flip side of the release, and once again His Majesty Andre goes with a deep, jacking bassline that rolls it’s way through the track. Main Course has said that this is their best release so far, and I wouldn’t disagree with that claim whatsoever. Pick it up on Beatport.
