These days you find a lot of websites posting articles about how the electronic scene is dying, then weeks later about how the electronic scene is thriving, then artists step in and assert their opinions (bias much?), and it stirs up a lot of passion from the bro’s and broette’s who love to get down to some gnar EDM and get all wiggly worm at a festival and sweat on by strangers (now bff’s) to a crazy LED light show that should induce epileptic seizures as any chance of hearing by the age of 65 slowly fades away..and man was that fun for a little bit!! As technological innovations for DJ’s become stagnant, though, the limits for what a live show has to offer has ultimately reached its peak. The stages can get bigger and more money spent towards production, but as I stand 300,000 people deep staring at a stage three football fields wide as Hardwell and Avicii take shelter in a massive owl, I start to have a hard time…getting off.

Following up on the release of their debut EP, Gold, Santa Barbara’s FMLYBND unveils the official video for one of my favorite tracks on the EP, “Come Alive.” Sharing the stage with Modest Mouse, The Faint and Twin Shadow at the U.S. Open of Surfing, the burgeoning indie-electronic band was given an opportunity of a lifetime for one of their very first shows, and they delivered accordingly. The video captures their high energy performance along with the warm summery vibes that align perfectly with FMLYBND‘s outstanding music.

More from Moderat, the collaborative brilliance of Modeselektor and Apparat, in this first single from their forthcoming sophomore LP. What sounds a bit of a poppier departure for them with the vocals in the beginning is backed by a very Moderaty beat, quickly giving way to the transcendant, poignant atmosphere that never ceases to amaze and induce a cool chill. Can’t wait for more.
The belgian dynamic duo Mumbai Science are back on the scene with another forthcoming 1975 EP on Lektroluv, this time creating a hilarious karaoke like video for the B-side single “Models.” Smiley face censored human beings dance atop uptempo light-hearted techno while an auto-type esque woman’s voice chants out the names of super models from around the world. A really funny video thats probably great for background visuals during sets, check it out above and look out for the release coming June 24th!
