    [FESTIVAL RECAP] North Coast Closes Out The 2014 Chicago Festival Season With a Bang!

    Labor Day weekend is most often associated with end of summer, but for the fifth year in a row Chicago’s best consolation has been North Coast Music Festival located in the west loop’s Union Park. Characterized by veteran hip-hop acts, EDM superstars and a plethora of indie acts and jam bands this year has not […]

    [PHOTO RECAP] Lost In the Moment: The Photo Story Of Burning Man 2014

    Not to be cliche, but they say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, if that’s true, than it would still be impossible to tell the story of what it’s like to experience Burning Man for the first time. To try and put it simply, Burning Man is insanity on every level, both […]

[Drum & Bass/Dubstep] Rameses B – Dream Catcher EP

Very few people would dispute that 2014 has been a ridiculously busy year for Rameses B. After releasing a full-length album (Reborn) and a handful of additional tunes in connection with Liquicity (one of YouTube’s largest drum & bass channels), the master of meaningful vibrations has swiftly returned for more action with his two-track Dream […]

[QUICK MIX - DOWNTEMPO DISCO] Face To Face With Todd Edwards – Guest Mix by Ruckus Roboticus

Pulse. It’s the tempo of our life. The speed of our lifestyle. It’s the colors of our glimmering cities at night. It occurs as the seasons change. It’s movement, up and down, side by side. We’re all set in our own rhythm and pace, though it’s not just ours, it is also a part of the […]

[ELECTRONIC/DEEP HOUSE] Big Data - "Dangerous" (ASTR Remix)

[ELECTRONIC/DEEP HOUSE] Big Data – “Dangerous” (ASTR Remix)

I have a love/hate relationship with Big Data. I recently got done with a 5-month long battle trying to create a brand campaign out of that vaguest of umbrella terms. After much headbanging, long nights, and gallons of coffee consumed we came out victorious, and through the process I become an unofficial “Big Data Visualization […]

[ELECTRO] Axen & Invalyd – “Marauder”

Easily one of the most intense pieces of electro-house to come from two pretty much-unknown producers is the new single from Axen & Invalyd, titled “Marauder.” Out now via Australian dance label Basik Rkrds; this single certainly packs quite a few punches. With Invalyd hailing from San Francisco and Axen a Melbourne resident, “Marauder” combines sheer […]

[Dubstep] Steve Aoki (Ft. Waka Flocka Flame) – Rage The Night Away (Barely Alive & Getter Remix)

Part of me felt like I was dreaming when I first noticed this Barely Alive & Getter collaboration. Even more surprisingly, a Barely Alive & Getter remix of Steve Aoki & Waka Flocka Flame’s popular “Rage The Night Away.” No, how could this be? I refused to believe it. But regardless of whether or not […]

[DUBSTEP] Habstrakt & Megalodon – “The Storm” EP

Next Monday sees the release of the collaborative EP between dubstep heavyweights Megalodon and Habstrakt. The Never Say Die label family have brought together their extraordinary creative flair and eye for a bass line together for these four tracks, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Both of these guys have remained on our radar for quite […]

[INDIETRONICA/LP] ODESZA – In Return

When it comes to musical, chilled out electronica it’s usually names like Phaeleh and the ever-reliable Bonobo who instantly spring to mind. Time to add another name to that list: ODESZA. The Seattle, Washington based pairing of Clayton Knight and Harrison Mills have been making a wondrous noise since joining forces in 2012 and now […]
