Knife Party haven’t given us much with their latest preview, but it’s certainly enough to inspire a rampant excitement for their new Haunted House EP. While “Power Glove” has been floating around the blogosphere for two months and is already being hailed as the follow up to “Internet Friends,” “EDM Death Machine” is our newest glimpse into Knife Party’s impending, hotly-anticipated third EP. With a build up consisting of churning factory noises, “EDM Death Machine” sets a dark precedent that is instantly solidified with an ominous vocal sample and hefty electro drop. Though the preview ends abruptly, the track is already sounding like one of their hardest productions to date.
“EDM Death Machine” will be the fourth single off of the Haunted House EP, with “Power Glove,” “LRAD,” and “Baghdad” preceding it. With Knife Party finally ready to unveil their latest misanthropic creations to the world, you can expect more previews to follow soon.

Hardwell, the 22 year old rising superstar from Holland, had a breakout year in 2010. Hardwell has distinguished himself by combining the hard hitting dance floor beats from his Dirty Dutch brethren with the stadium Trance style of a more classic Dutch influence (Tiesto?). Hardwell has many years ahead of him and he will become a festival headliner if he maintains his current pace.
This past Friday, the East Coast hosted one of the San Francisco’s up and coming DJs, Max Vangeli. As one of the hottest and most sought-after producers of 2010, his performance was met with much anticipation. While not as seasoned a navigator of the DJ circuit as many of his contemporaries, Vangeli and his opening partner DJ Brian Massey worked together to make the most of the night, amidst a few foibles.
