Closing out 2012 with their signature heavy bass sound, Trouble & Bass released their first volume of Clash of the Damned today, and I can’t get enough. This 10 track compilation is filled with collabs from artists around the world repping London, Portugal, Estonia, Finland and the United States and showing us just how fresh dance music can be. Spanning genres like house, dubstep, club music and rap the whole compilation is dark and delicious, definitely on repeat today!
Overthrow and Deathface have a thick as blood releationship, literally. The first time I met him in Miami a few years ago, we killed a girl on stage. Since then, he’s branded his own style of demonic bass music, and he was commissioned to do the second chapter of the Lil Death mixtape series. However, instead of an hour of dubstep, Deathface serves up 58 minutes of warehouse techno. If after listening to the mix you feel inclined to lurk into the night, he’ll be playing at Lil Death tonight. More info here.
With the T&B takeover at CONTROL at the Avalon this Friday, it only made sense to premiere the new Star Eyes EP, The Night, for you guys this afternoon! Set for release on January 17th on Trouble & Bass, the EP features the original from Star Eyes as well as remixes from Hostage, Deathface, and Bad Looks. The melodic original mix is equipped with chilling vocals, light airy synths, and a gripping grungy sound found in the peak of the track. The trio of remixes goes in all directions. Hostage embarks on an uptempo journey while utilizing Star Eyes’ stems very well, Deathface brings out the big guns as he throws in some major whomps and wiggles, and The Bad Looks remix incorporates some breaky drums and even furthers the wonky, grungy synth used in the original.
Enjoy streaming the EP before the release on the 17th, and make sure to come check out Star Eyes drop it this Friday at the Avalon!
Legendary DJ and prominent party-starter Donald Glaude will be making some noise at CONTROL this Friday at the Avalon in Hollywood. I actually saw Donald’s set at Playhouse earlier this summer with LA Riots, and let me tell you it was a loud one. I’d never heard a DJ use one before, but DG brought a truck horn along with him that shook the shit out of that club. I’m curious if he’ll have that in his arsenal on Friday. Supporting Donald’s headlining spot will be Trouble & Bass goth man Deathface, along with GDD™ buddy Rifat Ziadeh, Daniel L’Amour, and Steve Prior. Good times for all!
