It was a night that turned out to be an enlightening journey accompanied by an incredible array of music that morphed and transformed perceptions of electronic music’s “status quo.” Read the full details after the jump…

Vinyl collectors listen up! UK legends, Massive Attack and Burial, have recently collaborated on a limited edition 12″ release, featuring Burial’s incredible new takes on ’4 Walls’ and ‘Paradise Circus.’ As you can imagine, this is no ordinary vinyl release. Pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, each of the 1000 records is wrapped in a gold-glitter screen printed sleeve designed by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, and hand-numbered for that extra touch that collectors covet. At over 11 minutes for each song, these two tracks are undoubtedly epics and The Vinyl Factory has done a great job in putting all the pieces together. Pre-order yours at the Vinyl Factory website today.
The Canadian future bass producing duo, Knight Riderz, are making quite the name for themselves in the low end department of electronic music. Unlike their fellow maple leaf brethren, Zeds Dead, they center their style on a mid-tempo, crunked-out sound that is influenced by the punchy beats of hip-hop. If you haven’t heard their album, 12th Dimension, released via Muti Music, you should definitely check it out along with their awesome remix for the new Death of Summer EP of the Venice, California hip-hop duo, King Fantastic. Grab the remix, indulge in some of my old favorites, and keep an eye out this week for some freebies on their Facebook page for reaching 1,000 likes!
• King Fantastic – Locals Only (Knight Riderz Remix) [iTunes]
• King Fantastic – Westcoastsynthesizerbeachbumgangstermusic (Knight Riderz Remix)
• Massive Attack – Teardrop (Knight Riderz Remix) √+
