Skrux just passed 50,000 followers on Soundcloud and it’s well deserved. But when you hear his latest tune “Hidden” featuring Mona Moua, you’ll be wondering why he doesn’t have 500,000.

Once you’ve seen an artist perform live, I feel like you develop a closer attachment to their music, especially if they put on an incredible show. That’s definitely been the case for me and Kill Paris – having seen him play anywhere from tiny late-night spots to big name festivals, I’m a fan for life. This mix is much more uptempo than Flux Pavilion’s original, and adds some signature Kill Paris funk along with some really chill vocal distortions and groovy hi-hat syncopation. Check this one out, and make sure...read more
Described by his brother as a “new school Flume”, høwl is a young producer out of Australia with some serious talent. I first discovered him half a year ago with his great remix of “The Ocean”. I clutched my shark tooth necklace tightly after hearing that because I knew this guy was something special. An incomplete version of this song sat on his Soundcloud for months with no indication of a release. When a message from him saying nothing more than “u know what it is” graced my inbox, I knew....read more

This track is like Flume on crack. Learn more about Creaky Jackals on facebook. Learn more about Hydraulix on...read more
Most modern bass music is focused on the drop. Sometimes, a tension-building intro or buildup is neglected in lieu of the drop. “Falling In” by Illenium & Said the Sky sets the hook with a down-tempo introduction and passionate vocal. The track slowly builds into a wub-filled, transformers-esk powerful climax. “Falling In” doesn’t follow the expected EDM song structure: It has only one crescendo. The sound design is original and developed meticulously. Finally, the vocal by Mimi Page is carefully woven into...read more
