[Experimental Electronic/Jazz Fusion] Russ Liquid – In Love

Russ Liquid

I’ve literally been waiting for weeks to share this unmistakeable release with all of your wonderful human beings. So first of all, I’d like to apologize for the delay. I could stand here and make excuses for myself, but rather than do that, here are the cold hard facts about this blazing-hot production: 1) It’s […]

[Dubstep] Skrillex and Kill The Noise – Recess (Flux Pavilion Remix)

Flux Pavilion

You would be hard pressed to find a dubstep tune that’s been receiving more love in live sets than this one. I can’t even recall the last time I attended an EDM show/festival and one of the acts didn’t bust out this new gem from Flux Pavilion. The head honcho over at Circus Records has […]

[Dubstep/Trap] Twine – Killing Machine EP

Twine

This kid Twine is on some next level business! His wildly successful 2014 campaign has already been highlighted by multiple EP releases and thumping single after thumping single. If you’ve seen a live EDM performance in the last half year, there’s a 99.9% chance that one of the artists on the bill busted out some […]

[Dubstep] JPhelpz – Living Dead EP

JPhelpz

Honestly, the current state of dubstep is in a really weird place at the moment. After experiencing tons of success across the U.S. during 2010 and 2011, the booming genre took a bit of a backseat to house and trap during the past couple years. But something has smelled different in the 2014 EDM air. […]

[FESTIVAL REVIEW] 10 Acts That Blew Us Away At Spring Awakening

[FESTIVAL REVIEW] 10 Acts That Impressed Us At Spring Awakening

It’s been over a week since Spring Awakening 2014 concluded, but we’re still abuzz about all the acts that helped make this fantastic festival such a memorable experience. Here at The Sights and Sounds, we’ve been having some heated debates over the producers that made the most positive impressions on us during the weekend. Somehow, […]

[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 […]

[Electronic] Late Night Radio – Soap Box

Late Night Radio

I first had the pleasure of introducing my ears to Late Night Radio at Infrasound Music Festival a couple weeks ago. My friends had warned me about how much potential this emerging producer possessed, but I didn’t officially buy into the hype until I witnessed him deliver what I considered to be a flawless live […]

[Dubstep] Cookie Monsta – Time To Party

Cookie Monsta

I swear, 2014 dubstep is starting to sound more like 2011 dubstep with each day that passes. Rather than question the motivation behind this miniature bass music movement, I think I’ll just ride it out for as long as I possibly can. Most recently, Cookie Monsta tossed his hat into the ring of dubstep throwback […]

[Drumstep] Noisestorm – Breakdown VIP

Noisestorm

The entire EDM demographic experienced a moment of utter disbelief when Noisestorm released the original version of “Breakdown.” So when we even got so much as a whiff of his new VIP of the same tune, we hunkered down for what promised to be one of the heaviest drumstep devourers to ever eat up the inside […]
