This mix is fly. Fans of Disclosure, Breach, and all things that pop to bassy, sexy house music should dig this mix by the duo consisting of Foamo and RackNRuin. Right after you catch our very own BONES on the HARD Stage, stay put and see Gorgon City perform on the same stage right after at HARD Summer 2013 on Sunday, August 4.
On deck for Kastle‘s on-point Symbols Recordings is a 4-track EP from 20 year old video game enthusiast and bass music prodigy, Lindsay Lowend. This young DC producer blends his interests in gaming and technology with a seemingly inherent feel for building depth and vibe to his music, a rare quality found in such green talent. Already picking up support from some big guns around the scene, I’d expect the Wind Fish EP to make some large waves toward the end of this summer. Available August 6th. √+

I’m currently 3 weeks into the course material with Point Blank Online. This week’s lesson was all about bass & midi effects. Comparing the material this week to the previous two, there was a major difference. After two weeks of going over instruments, plug-ins, and effects in Abelton live we finally began to focus our attention on music theory. Although the main purpose of this course is to teach Ableton as a production tool, music theory must be incorporated to make any of these examples come to life.

Since the inception of our site over four years ago, UK producer Foamo has maintained a spot atop our list of favorites due to his steadily maturing sound. He’s set to release a banging new EP that comes out next week on the 17th backed by the Rinse camp. The title track Release Me will surely be doing the rounds in clubs this summer due to the knocking bass and silky vocals of Lotti. Clearly drawing from his recent work on his Gorgon City project, the future of dance music looks bright with artists like Foamo pushing the envelope and blurring the boundaries of genres.
Tis the season to get sprung, and I present you an hour’s worth of tunes to usher in this lascivious vibe. My selections hop across genres and delve deep into my musical collection, ranging from Skream to !!! to Classixx.
Best wishes & happy hunting.
“I want you to all smell a dubplate because they smell really good. You might never get to smell one ever again…”
Vivian Host, aka Star Eyes hands me a dusty disc, an old DnB record from Renegade Hardware. I smell it and have to admit, it smells perfect. Like old musty books but better, because it’s music. On the bed sits Jess Gentile, better known as Jubilee. We’re chillin’ in the infamous 181 spot in Brooklyn, Vivian’s current residence, while our lovely photographer, Kaitlin Parry of Shoot People, sets up for this Gotta Dance Dirty exclusive look into the lives and music of two of the best bass DJs and producers around.
Seductive, funky, pounding; Kill Paris has released an EP of futuristic bass with a touch of french (and plenty of remixes). Out now on OWSLA, its kind of like digging through your parents’ Earth, Wind & Fire records with Skrillex and Koan Sound, in the future. Two free downloads and the full EP stream here.
Bass producer and generally chill bro, Butch Clancy, just ratcheted things up a notch. His weekly track giveaway known as #TrapTuesdays culminates today with the final track on the free-to-download LP. I give Butch a bold move on this one– I am a huge fan of giving away entire albums for free– and offer my suggestion that one eye be kept on ‘ol Butch in the next few months.
Here’s the first track on the album:

Our friends at LA-based label, SMOG, have just sent over an exciting new release from Brooklyn’s Infuze, and the Far Away EP truly caught me off guard in the best way possible. A well-travelled producer, Eliot Leigh AKA Infuze has made music from an early age; starting out in the realm of Drum N Bass before dabbling in Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop while studying music production in school. Over the years, his initial passion for DnB and Bass music never left him, and his ability to integrate melody and Pop sensibilities within bass-heavy productions grew stronger. Far Away tells this story perfectly, and I hear the possibility of the next Magnetic Man within the 5 track release. For real. Pick up the EP on Beatport tomorrow 11/27 and let me know if you disagree.
Today, we get to premiere one of my favorite tracks from the release titled “Fever;” a lighter, more “I Need Air” side to Infuze. A must-listen.
