GDD™ fav, Anna Lunoe, has released a 2-track EP today on Skrillex’s free imprint, Nest, and it’s quite the beast. The title track, “Bass Drum Dealer” or “BDD” for short, boasts some insane tribal percussion, a wicked halftime breakdown, and, of course, some √+ vocals from the Australian producer. The B-side, “Bad MF,” sees Anna Lunoe teaming up with Treasure Fingers for a West Coast House jam with pitched down vox and a mighty fine groove. As with all Nest releases, the tunes are available for free download via Nest’s Soundcloud. Get ready to hear this one out this summer. √+
Chris White (aka Whiiite) has cultivated his budding career right here Los Angeles, becoming an influential producer/DJ and impresario that helped build the local dance scene into what it is today. With this Whiiite project, he takes his career to new heights with a unique superhero graphic novel series that synchs up with each of his EPs to tell the epic story of Whiiite, his origin and powers, and the villains he faces – with each character having their own sound. From a genre standpoint, he boasts a deep catalog of heavy-hitting trap, electro-house, techno, and more that features his distinctive studio touch. As a DJ, he’s known for his high-energy sets that are as eclectic as they are captivating, and this guest mix is a prime example of that.
The deeper vibes are catching on to the heavy hitters. First Jack Beats “Beatbox”, Skrillex’s “F That” and now Zeds Dead has teamed up with Brooklyn indie-throb Twin Shadow. The product is hauntingly soulful – a jackin house groove carried by a devilish deep bassline. Don’t worry Zeds Dead fans, there’s still just enough bang in this one to keep you going… check it below!
