After the success of “Ciaco,” “Warmonger” and “Intropial,” one of DA’s Artists to Watch in 2013, Walden, hops back into the original production ring with a one-two punch of atmospheric electro. This brief preview of his latest “Machine Land,” showcases the young producer’s constantly maturing sound, one defined by a macabre backbone of mechanical grit. As his career continues on its hot streak, Walden seems to be expanding his sonic range – delivering a finely developed and intricately layered electro house production with chilling style and frenetic synthwork. “Machine Land” is scheduled to be released on April 29th via Big Beat Records.Posted by
Though Walden’s debut appearance at Ultra Music Festival may be over, the Aussie has more in store for Miami Music Week. Now out on Big Beat is a remix package for “Intropial,” the progressive house tune that showcased the young producer’s progress earlier this year. Along with TV Noise and Ghost, Pierce Fulton signs on to give the track the remix treatment, making the vibe a little less sugary and little more sultry. Relying on an easy kick drum and grooving tonal melody, Fulton successfully keep the high pitched vocals while bringing the track down to earth.

Dubstep icon Flux Pavilion has released Blow the Roof, his first EP since 2010′s Lines in Wax. It’s an eight track EP featuring an inspiring mix of divergent bass music, with complimentary vocals from Sway, P Money, Childish Gambino, and Steele himself. While Flux teased a generous selection of originals off Blow the Roof prior to the EP’s release, it was difficult to formulate an opinion on each track without seeing them in their broader context. Upon reviewing Blow the Roof, however, it is quite evident that this not just another slew of disparate ‘bangers’ — rather, Blow the Roof has the type of cohesion and format typically reserved for an LP.
Blow the Roof isn’t perfect by any means, but it’s damn impressive. From Flux’s surprisingly enticing singing voice, to his experimentation with trap and breaks, Blow the Roof is the mark of a producer with more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Click past the break for a track by track review of Flux Pavilion’s brand new Blow the Roof EP.
Over the past year, Arty has gained power through his uplifting progressive house and trance productions. The Russian producer has given fans subtle style with production substance, unleashing the sprawling “When I See You” and “Must Be The Love” in 2012. Now ready to carry his production chops into 2013, Arty has unveiled is latest piece of work, “Together We Are,” featuring vocals from Chris James. Listeners first heard James on Deadmau5‘s “The Veldt,” and his smooth vocals easily transfer onto “Together We Are.”
Arty’s blissfully enhanced tune will be released on February 18 via Big Beat Records, but click below the break for sneak peak.
Last week Flux Pavilion surprised fans with “OneTwoThree,” a free download from his forthcoming Blow the Roof EP, due out January 28th. This week the UK dubstepper officially unveiled the title track from his highly anticipated output — releasing “Blow the Roof” via Big Beat Records.
Like many of Flux’s previous releases, “Blow the Roof” carries a bass-heavy energy listeners crave, but this time at a moombahton rhythm. The track proves to be another precisely produced piece from the dubstep heavyweight — making us wonder if the “Blow the Roof” will receive the anthem-worthy label of his previously released “I Can’t Stop” and “Bass Cannon.”
After the release of “Aquarius,” dBerrie is back with a remix to Danny Avila’s first single, “Breaking Your Fall.” The track trades an upbeat progressive bassline for a pulsating electro beat infused with the same catchy vocals. This is the second remix previewed for Avila’s track, after Mikael Weermet’s showed his electro remix on Musical Freedom Radio last month. The full remix package will be out on Big Beat Records, January 14th.
Circus Records head honcho Flux Pavilion is known for dabbling in diverse genres during live performances, spinning everything from dubstep, to trap, to tribal dance and beyond. Taking this mantra to the studio, Flux has unveiled a preview for an upcoming track entitled “Blow the Roof,” a menacing moombahton original. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Circus Records exec take an interest in the 110-112 bpm genre. Earlier this year, Flux’s partner in crime Doctor P collaborated with Dillon Francis on their moombahton track “Music is Dead.” It’s refreshing to see dubstep artists taking a stab at new genres. Flux’s “Blow the Roof” will be released on January 28th on Circus and Big Beat Records as part of Flux’s forthcoming Blow the Roof EP.Posted by
Candyland, the co-ed duo known for their remixes, return with their first original cut “Castle Of Affair” due out on their debut Bring The Rain EP. Hailing from Santa Barbra, CA the two producers have made a name for themselves through big room reworks, winning remix contests for Bingo Players‘ “Rattle” and Skrillex‘s “Make It Bun Dem,” which was later released via OWSLA/Big Beat Records.
Now out with their first official original production the two seem like they are honing in on a more melodic sound with “Castle Of Affair.” Featuring the magnetic vocals of Peter Dawson, the Candyland duo create a hazy electro intro which wraps around his voice with ease. Midway through the two producers add plummeting bass drops to turn the track into a surprising banger, making their first original output a quality production.

Rudimental dropped a new track on their Soundcloud page yesterday, and we couldn’t be happier it features Angel Haze. “Hell Could Freeze” is one part RnB soul jam and one part syncopated house track. Angel, alternating between spitting dirty rap lines and sickly sweet tones, also shows her diversity. Think of what would happen if Delilah and Azealia Banks made a baby and you’ll get the swagger of Angel Haze.
Meet Apocalytpo, two 18-year old Melbourne-based producers who have quickly begun to make a name for themselves by melding dark synths with harmonious peaks and catastrophically deep valleys. Their debut release, “600 Kents” was premiered earlier this year as an Essential Selection on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show, establishing these youngsters as ones to watch in 2013. Devastatingly dark and ominous, the duo’s debut track is reminiscent of fellow Aussie, Tommy Trash‘s gritty electro. Striking a delicate balance between chirpy melodies and aggressive sawtooth groans, “600 Kents” epitomizes the genre-blurring we’ve come to see from many of dance music’s newcomers – it’s a refreshingly versatile take on an increasingly stagnant genre.
Be sure to grab this one when it is released November 30th via Neon/Big Beat Records.Posted by
