Bringing you the latest ROWDY music!


Infected Mushroom CVII Tour — 3/4 Minneapolis | Skyway Theatre

***Get Your Tickets Here***
Infected Mushroom is one of those groups that we never take for granted every year. For the last three years, they have amazed us with one of THE BEST live performances in music. From their stunning 3D mapping visuals of “The Dueling Death Stars” to their custom controllers, Duvdev and Erez always bring on their A-game. We’re beyond stoked to have them here again this Friday with a full band.

Their latest EP, Converting Vegetarians II out on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, sticks to the bizarre medley of sounds that only Infected Mushroom can create, and completely own. Listen to it here, and let it take you through the rabbit hole, into another world.

Let’s get weird. Check out our interview with Duvdev and Erez:

Illenium Debuts Breakout Album “Ashes”

For our readers that have tuned their ears to the up and coming Illenium, yesterday marked the release of his debut album,  Ashes. The album was released on February 15, with exclusive bonus tracks available on iTunes. His debut album consists of what one would call melodic dubstep or future bass. This album has truly shown how the Colorado native’s musical diversity.

Our favorite songs from this album include: “Riverie”, “Sleepwalker”, “Afterlife”, and the bonus track “Bring Forth the Pressure”. This album has already become one of the top electronic albums in our eyes, bringing on a tidal waves of feelings from start to finish — the way that music should. Sit back, put on a pair of headphones, and have a relaxing evening enjoying the new album.

Ratatat, ‘Magnifique’ [FULL ALBUM]


Featured on NPR, Ratatat’s new album is where it’s at. Summer vibes flowing through these tracks. Full Album: BUY HERE“So much of Ratatat‘s appeal lies in what it doesn’t do: On the band’s fifth album, Brooklynites Mike Stroud and Evan Mast built sleek, propulsive instrumentals using a spare palette of guitars, synthesizers and simple percussion in such a way that the music sounds both triumphant and understated. These are rock instrumentals that needn’t overcompensate for their lack of words; they don’t strain to be heard or scramble to stand out, but instead convey coolness that seems effortless.

What Magnifique — Ratatat’s first album since the more experimental LP4 five summers ago — lacks in showy flamboyance or wholly surprising sounds, it possesses in breezy smoothness that proves versatile. The first single, “Cream On Chrome,” has the most overt zippiness to it, but even it never works up a sweat or wastes a breath. When Ratatat kicks up a few ’80s-style hard-rock guitar solos in “Pricks Of Brightness,” they function as some of the most easygoing heroics you’ll ever hear.

Elsewhere on Magnifique, the duo’s instrumentals seem suited to accompany mixed drinks at a beachside restaurant: At several points in “Drift,” Ratatat calms down enough to emit a noise that closely resembles a cat’s purr, while “Supreme” sways softly such that it attracts a chirping bird. If Magnifique unfolds like a snappy summer movie, “I Will Return” is there at the end to burble euphorically over the closing credits, even going so far as to promise a sequel right in its title. Here’s hoping so.” – NPR

SNEO–“Terra” EP

Full Album Stream/Download

Electronic music’s trickle into modern cinema has been occurring pretty rapidly over the last few years. However, it’s been mostly restricted to party scenes in movies (or all of Project X), and crazy action (22 Jump Street). Section Z’s Records’, SNEO, is going to bridge the gap between dance music and movie soundtracks. SNEO’s new EP, Terra, embarks the listener on a journey which is self-described as “mankind landing on an alien world for the first time and exploring it”. We couldn’t agree more, the first track “Bioluminous” instantly reminded us of Metroid Prime’s “Tallon Overworld” Theme–one of the best video game soundtracks ever BTW.

The atmospheric melodies really do transport you while the bass keeps you grounded on this new world. Check out “Bioluminous” below, and go give SNEO’s Facebook Page a “Like!” [Full Album Stream/Download]

edIT–Crying Over Pros For No Reason


It’s not very often that we get to see how an artist’s music has been reshaped or defined newer material. In the EDM world, longevity is rare, and it seems like every month there’s a new blockbuster DJ/Producer on the scene. Which is why its so interesting to be able to delve deep in The Glitch Mob’s past, before the trio even existed, and see the origins of each of the three Mob members, particularly Ed Ma, aka edIT. edIT’s first album Crying Over Pros For No Reason, is being re-released and is completing a 10-year cycle for his solo project, which has taken a side seat since the formation of The Glitch Mob in 2006. However, to first time listeners, edIT’s first album is moment of realization. The tracks seem vaguely familiar for anyone who has listened to The Glitch Mob before, the calm, melodic instruments juxtaposed with heavy, iconic, GLITCH.  Check out the anniversary edition of the album, and all the DnB inspirations from it in the full stream below, and if you dig it BUY IT:

If you’re a vinyl enthusiast, you’ll definitely want this one, coolest looking vinyl we’ve seen, available here.

The Glitch Mob–Love, Death, Immortality Tour



One of our most listened to artists are coming to Minneapolis this Thursday on their Love, Death, Immortality Tour. And there are plenty of signs pointing to this concert being the best on in Minneapolis all year. Here’s why:

They have a sick new stage setup:

Check out their new stage “organism”, the Blade, it’s not just cool lights and weird design. It’s actually functional. The Glitch Mob is known to create their own crazy instruments to perform live as much as possible, and the Blade will not disappointment.

Their music Rocks!

We’ve been huge fans of The Glitch Mob ever since they  burst onto the scene with their debut album, “Drink the Sea.” Their EP did not disappoint, and “Love, Death, Immortality” was one of the most anticipated electronic music albums this year.

Gramatik Lays Down The Beat! [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Soda start, symphonic melodies and lyrical flow of ProbCause present ProbMatik. Emphatically entitled “ProbMatik Monster Stomp”, we thoroughly enjoyed this one in its entirety.

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 where you can find out a lot more of the behind-the-scenes work and collaborations.
