Droptek has made a triumphant return to electro-house this week with Boundaries – a hard-hitting, bass-heavy track that’s been released on the Vancouver-based Monstercat label. There’s definitely a good amount of wobble in this one, keeping in line with his southern UK roots, but a high-pitched melodic accent keeps this in check – somewhat reminiscent of Summit by Skrillex and Ellie Goulding. Clocking in at almost 6 minutes, Boundaries is an electro adventure that will likely have you hitting repeat. Enjoy this...read more
This funky collaboration from SevnthWonder, A Sol Mechanic, and TokyoMegaplex came out on Cream Collective today and is available for free download. It’s full of bongos, bass, and trill, and it’s a little bit future, a little R&B, and a little bit trappy with that hi-hat too. The effects on the vocals are designed to mirror the percussion, which adds to the futuristic feel and build, then the symphonic synths and harmonies take it home. You can definitely tell there was a fusion of creative energies to create this one. If...read more
Mondays just got a million times better thanks to UK producer Rameses B, who graced us with a new, hair raising two-track EP titled Dream Catcher EP. The first track, ‘Dream Catcher,’ features the beautiful vocals of Charlotte Haining over euphoric Drum and Bass beats that are as uplifting as they are emotional. The second track, ‘Broken Trust,’ is a slowed down Dubstep track that’s the perfect balance to the fast paced first half of the EP.
