Back in June, I was lucky enough to catch the Nobody Beats The Drum live show when they stopped in New York at Webster Hall, Governors Ball and the afterparty at the Brooklyn Bowl. To say I was impressed with their performance is definitely putting it lightly. Their set up is a fully integrated audio and visual experience. Rogier directs the visual elements that project on the screens that span the entire stage perfectly in time with Jori and Sjam’s mixing. The images range from bright and beautiful to dark and ominous, seamlessly enhancing their track selection. The result is captivating and incredibly refreshing and original. One of the tracks that not only made the crowd go wild but also caught my attention was “Natural Thing,” which they recently released as an EP (with some pretty decent remixes from The Subs, Rimer London, and Fellow) and also as a music video that is definitely worth checking out.

It’s been a year since Bart B More released the devastating single Traction, a chart topper in 2011 with massive support from such greats like Boys Noize, Zombie Nation and Tiga. With only hints at the remixes teased in his signature mixtapes, the Traction Remixes EP finally dropped today on Bart’s label Secure Recordings. If you thought the original was enough, the remixes are through the roof – including successfully eclectic versions by the German TAI (our favorite), Dutch Baskerville and Norwegian Funkin Matt. Check them out below, and don’t forget to support the Traction Remixes EP on Beatport!
The Bloody Beetroots will always remind me of 2007 and 2008 when we really first immersed ourselves in the burgeoning Electro scene that Los Angeles harbored during that time. Bob Rifo has always been a musical genius. From his Timbaland remix to ‘Warp’ and now to his latest single, ‘Rocksteady,’ which had its first remix EP out today on Ultra Records, the Bloody Beetroots moniker has always garnered respect from the dance music community, and we’re happy to say that we’re still big fans of what Sir Bob is up to. That said, we’re delighted that Part 1 of the remix EP for ‘Rocksteady’ is top notch; with remixes from Dem Slackers, Mumbai Science, and fellow Italian Gigi Barocco. Dem Slackers has been kind enough to stream his remix for us on this release day, so have a listen to some quality Electro House below and pick up all 3 remixes on Beatport. Continue Reading

Bromance Records is simply on fire. Brodi really has the vision for his label down, and he’s let his pal Gesaffelstein take the reigns for the 4th EP, Rise of Depravity, due out on July 9th. Rise of Depravity sees 2 originals from Gesa, ‘Depravity’ and ‘Belgium.’ The title track consists of the pumping Techno you’d expect from the handsome Frenchman, but ‘Belgium’ slows the tempo way down into something I can only describe as Technoombah (see Dave Nada I can make up genres too!), and pays homage to the early 80s/90s ecelectic electronic scene of the country. Pick it up on Beatport in a couple weeks, and until then have a listen to the previews below! √+ Continue Reading
