There’s something viciously nostalgic about french house producer Panteros666 latest LP Hyper Reality. This new album released by one of my favorite labels, Bromance Records, seamlessly blends 90’s hardcore rave samples and dark house vibes, unquestionably inducing you into a convulsion of no return. Hyper Reality converges into a musical concept like no other, there’s no doubt an alien abduction took place and the message is… DESTROY!
Panteros666 aka Victor Watel has spent years developing his cyber-pscychedelic aesthetic, cleverly molding genres from acid techno to future bass, and even some southern rap influences. Expect drone-type vocal samples, steady bass lines, apocalyptic synths and just an overall invitation to another dimension. Definitely not an album for the faint of heart. Check out the Hyper Reality mini mix and what Panteros666 crafted for his live shows… the future is here!
French foursome, Club Cheval (consisting of Canblaster, Panteros666, Sam Tiba, and Myd), are releasing the 6th EP out on Brodi and Manu Barron’s label, Bromance, today accompanied by a music video for the A-side, “Decisions.” Aptly self-described as “Rave N’ B,” the Decisions EP consists of a heavy serving of Bass on the eponymous A-side, while the B-side “Vanilla Girl” utilizes sultry female vocals in an homage to early 00’s R&B. Pick it up on iTunes now.

Another split single EP was just released yesterday on Brodinski‘s Bromance Records and as the two EPs before it, EP#3 is an instant summer must-have. The first single comes from the ‘can-do-no-wrong’ collaboration between labelhead Brodi and the clever vocalist, Louisahhh!!!. Bouncy Techno elopes with Louisahhh’s repetitive vocals, and ‘Nobody rules These Streets, Not Like Me’ quickly gets caught up in the brain. The second single, ‘Now U Realize,’ comes from the supergroup from France known as Club Cheval (Canblaster, Sam Tiba, Panteros666, Myd). Don’t try to put this one in a genre because you’ll find that you need about 5 to really lock down all the different sounds that this power quartet have included. Stream below and pick up both tracks on Beatport now. √+Continue Reading

Cédric Steffens, AKA Canblaster, has seen a meteoric rise in the dance music community in the past year or so.
