[PLAYLIST] – NORTH COAST MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014 PREVIEW

logo_2014_sls

Crafted by James Kabat and Kavi S. Still nursing hangovers from Lolla, Chicago is about descend in droves upon West Loop’s Union Park. Well, maybe descend is too strong a verb. They’ll slink their way on the L, shushing teenagers for the temerity to raise their voice an octave above a whisper. That is until […]

[Dubstep/House/Glitch Hop] Virtual Riot – We’re Not Alone EP

Virtual Riot

Don’t look now, but Virtual Riot just unveiled the dubstep song of the year. Yeah, I said it, and guess what? I won’t hesitate to repeat it. Virtual Riot, one of my favorite producers on the planet, just put out 2014′s most captivating dubstep anthem. Do I need to say it again? No? Okay, good. […]

[HOUSE] David Vrong ft. Amaëlle – “Breaking Out”

BreakingOutArt

Having only been alerted to David Vrong via his bouncy remix of Lunde Bros “Jump Up” earlier this year, he is an artist who puts himself in great stead for the future with his new single, out now on Ultra Music. “Breaking Out” is a stunning vocal-led track, with a beautiful contribution from Belgian singer Amaëlle.  With […]

[HOUSE] Dillon Francis + Sultan & Ned Shepherd ft. The Chain Gang of 1974 – When We Were Young

[HOUSE] Dillon Francis + Sultan & Ned Shepherd feat. The Chain Gang of 1974 - When We Were Young

When we were children, we watched in admiration as our parents donned their business attire each morning to go to work and could not wait until we grew up to be like them.  Now, we sit in our respective cubicles and stare dully out of office windows at the world beyond, over-caffeinated and underpaid, perhaps […]

[HOUSE] Kove ft. Melissa Steel - "Way We Are"

Kove’s latest release, ‘Way We Are’, sees the MTA member moving his sound into new territories and doing it fantastically well. The track will be released on July 14th and is a sure sign of intent from the previously low-key producer. The lead from the release sits at 128bpm and is guaranteed to be played […]

[HOUSE] – FEHRPLAY – “EVERYWHERE YOU GO”

EverywhereYouGo

Pryda Friends prodigy Jonas Von Der Fehr (aka Fehrplay) released his highly anticipated masterpiece Everywhere You Go on June 27th on Ultra. Gracefully combining elements of 90′s piano house with his signature melodic deep house sound and groovy synths he pulls off yet another almost effortless sounding banger that not only further exemplifies his ever-expanding […]

[CONCERT RECAP/ARTIST PREVIEW] Kygo at The Mid & Electric Forest

Kygo

Kygo could very well be considered one of the hottest producers in dance music at the moment. His style has been advertised as tropical house, but to put that into layman’s terms for you, it’s feel-good EDM at it’s finest. With tunes that rely heavily on catchy melodies, easygoing percussion, and noises that sound like […]

[House] Feed Me – Alarm Clock

Feed Me

Feed Me has been one of our favorite bass music producers since day one. We can vividly recall pledging our allegiance to his sensational sound shortly after navigating our way through memorable numbers like “Cloudburn” & “Relocation.”  Over the years, he’s made a point to dabble with all different types of EDM subgenres, but lets be […]
