No words necessary for this…just, RAGE! Don’t forget to check out Skrillex’s latest album HERE!
Soda start, symphonic melodies and lyrical flow of ProbCause present ProbMatik. Emphatically entitled “ProbMatik Monster Stomp”, we thoroughly enjoyed this one in its entirety. From start to finish Gramatik’s beat gets captures you whiel ProbCause’s flow keeps you bobbin’. We’d love to see more collabs from these two! Requesting Gramatik to release a full hip-hop album with collabs with various rappers like Childish Gambino, Deltron 3030, Del the funky homosapien, etc. - anyone else agree?
If there’s one producer that we can expect to wow us with unexpected takes on music, it’s Lorin Ashton. Known to non-BassHeads as Bassnectar, Ashton is back with an epic new 15-track LP, “Noise vs. Beauty.” A fitting title for the work of someone who seems to effortlessly blend calming atmospheric melodies with hard-hitting bass, as seen immediately in the first track “F.U.N” (<–Spongebob Reference?) The progression through the LP is truly remarkable, the second track is another one of our favorites, starting out with a frenzy of noise, transitioning to slow, smooth vocals, and getting our heart rate back up and our heads banging. By the third song, “Loco Ono” Bassnectar knows exactly what you’re thinking, the lyrics appropriately start off the song “Let the music take control, turn in up and LET IT GO!!!”
We weren’t huge fans of the vocals for the 4th track, but the next one, “Lost in the Crowd” is going to be an instant hit. Combining some great hip-hop, with an infectious riff, the song instantly reminded us of the hit, “Vava Voom.” Right when you need a break, “Ephemeral” lets you ease off a little bit, and creates a galactic traveling atmosphere. But don’t let us tell you how the LP should make you feel, experience it yourself below!!! As always, one of the most refreshing takes on “EDM” music, and always progressive. Buy the album on Bassnectar.net where you can find out a lot more of the behind-the-scenes work and collaborations. Plus check out his Twitter feed to see the insights he’s shared with fans!

Matt Lange has put together a remix of Above and Beyond’s “Good For Me” and it has surpassed all our expactations. Matt manages to keep Above and Beyond’s sound present, while adding in his own touch and the result is truly beautiful. Music is all about emotion and this track made us feel alive. Good job Matt, keep it up!
The soul/funk guru Griz has had one of his older tracks remixed by New York’s Exmag. Being apart of Gramatik’s Lowtemp label, Exmag has got nothing but good vibes and enough funk to change the world. “Fall In Love Too Fast” takes you on a 3:30 adventure through the land of funk and we will have this track on repeat for the rest of the day. So real!
