Khlameleon808 also known as Josh Prescott, recently paid a tribute to two of the greatest EDM trios of all time, and the outcome was outstanding. By taking fragments of three classic pieces from The Prodigy, and mashing it up with The Glitch Mob’s modern EDM sound on “Breathe,” the talented DJ was able to create an wild ride through bass music. Dating all the back to 1997 when The Fat of the Land was originally released, with recently The Glitch Mob’s addicting spin on “Still Breathing” featuring The Added Fat EP....read more
Friday night at Webster Hall was a wild one. Gent & Jawns, opened for Pegboard Nerds and started the night off right with a trap-heavy set that incorporated some moombahton and electro elements. Finally, after an hour and a half of long awaited anticipation, Pegboard Nerds took the stage. The duo began their heavy dubstep set with enthusiasm and passion. The crowd mirrored the energy from the two onstage and pretty soon, everyone was going absolutely mad. Drop after drop Pegboard Nerds smoothly transitioned from remixes to originals that...read more
Delta Heavy’s first release of 2014 is here with the Apollo EP. Group members Ben & Si have been hard at work on this for awhile, so I was super excited to hear the EP. The main track, ‘Apollo’ is a heart-stopping bass extravaganza. ‘The World is Yours’ is a bit of progressive dashed in, with awesome synth. ‘Badboy Style’ has been compared to tracks by electronic greats Prodigy, and I agree. Delta Heavy is now on tour in Australia, so if you live there you might want to check them out. Or let me come visit...read more
I have been to the Fillmore multiple times. It’s a beautiful venue that’s perfectly located in Detroit. Yet, this was my first time experiencing the Fillmore with Excision and his 150,000 Watts of Sound filling its halls.Starting off the night was Ill Gates. His act was full of energy that got a lot of fans attention and praise. Following up Ill Gates were the Dirtyphonics. Best known for their explosive beats which consist of electro, dubstep, and drum & bass, they instantly filled up the dance floor. They took the audience on...read more

The music video was just released and it officially brings the song to the next level. Directed by Terence Neale and filmed straight in the slums of South Africa, the video takes you...read more
