Everyone’s May 6th should have been full of Savant and Knife Party. Savant teamed up with Adam K and JELO for a two song EP with some dope electro house. Knife Party released ‘Haunted House’ which was full of, well, more electro house! On the KP release, I do have to say that my favorite is “Power Glove”. Which is yours!? Next, things you need to stay tuned for. Two pictures have been posted, one showing the exportation of a “Thumbs Up” remix by Kill The Noise! The second is a lovely creeper pic from none other than Sir Dillon Francis himself, over the shoulder of Diplo. It says they are collabing, so let’s hope that’s true! That would be a massive track. Aaaaand here’s a third pic of Wolfgang’s epic cat tattoo. Now digest!
Shorne: The amount of anticipation that Daft Punk has built up for their upcoming album release of ‘Random Access Memories’ is starting to get a bit ridiculous. Between their fifteen second commercial spots on Saturday Night Live, and constant release in the Collaborator Series from musicians and producers that the French duo has been blessed to work with; everyone on the internet must know of its impending May 21st release. Now we’ve got an up close and personal interview with Guy-Manuel and Thomas Bangalter as they talk with Pete Tong about what they have been up to since their last world tour! Enjoy these inspirational words.

The bass music project entitled Destroid, which consists of Excision, Downlink and KJ Sawka have released their first album. ‘The Invasion’ has ten songs, with amazing collaborators like Bassnectar and Far Too Loud. However, the last song on the album is one that really caught my attention. Excision teamed up with Space Laces for an absolutely massive, bass heavy (of course), moombahcore track. “Funk Hole” not only brings the usual Excision bass, but brings a hardcore groovy mood that will cause anyone and everyone to start getting down. I have no doubt that I will be playing this one out for a long time. The range of genres in this release was a little surprise to me, but nonetheless, a good one. Make sure to check out the rest of the tracks and buy this album. You will not regret it!
Head over to Destroid’s Facebook to stay up to date on this epic project! If you are in any area that they will be performing at, then make sure to get a ticket. This project is not only musical, but visual as well. Destroid is bringing a whole new experience to audiences.

Now let me tell you from first hand experience that this festival is definitely the top contender when it comes to EDM shows in Colorado. Obviously the beautiful venue plays a major role but the production and all around vibe calls for a one of a kind experience. Last year I had the pleasure of seeing artists such as Knife Party, Hardwell, Zeds Dead, Excision, and Dillon Francis rock the stage with seamless mixing and massive choons.
Well for the 11th year in a row Global Dance Festival is back at Red Rocks July 19th thru the 21st.

When I saw that Vonzie posted a new track that was deemed “Magic Moombah Trap” I thought to myself, “Ok, let’s see what exactly that means”. After listening, I totally could not disagree even a little bit with the genre title. “Hands Up” is an absolutely incredible track that exemplifies Vonzie’s production talent. The piano breakdown in the beginning is beautiful and sounds very real, which is what you look for in production. This track is perfect for a chill atmosphere, but I can totally see this being played at any type of venue. 808, spacey and chill. What more could you ask for?
Head over to Vonzie’s Facebook and SoundCloud to give him some love and stay tuned for more originals and remixes! And if you’re ever in the NY area, check him out if he has a performance, or if you have your own venue, book him!

For many of us, it’s that time of year again, the dreaded finals weeks. To help that along we have some amazing tunes for you guys this week that are sure to motivate you. But first, some news. Dubstep OG, Benga is releasing his brand new album in two days, which coincides with the Knife Party release. That’ll be one hell of a day! For those of you who know the chip tune band ANAMANAGUCHI, they finally have another album finished, with 22 tracks, but are looking for fiscal help to take it, along with other ideas (Merchandise, Live Show stuff etc.), to the next level. If anybody is interested then head over to Kickstarter to see what their project is and what they want out of it. Lastly, to get your lolz for the weekend here are 14 pictures of Producer/Djs from back in the day! Now, on to the sonic portion of your digestion!
Shorne: Brown & Gammon‘s vintage production style is bringing us a fresh new take on dance music reminiscent of edm’s roots. “Dark Matter” is a mesmerizing original electro tune from the UK based duo and was just recently released by the renowned Circus Records. Circus continues to build upon the platform Flux Pavilion laid down as founder of the label, and have just added the filthy up and coming Mizuki to the roster. Haven’t heard much from Flux recently but word on the street has it that he is also working on a live project much like Excision‘s Destroid, which will be premiering this summer at festivals across the world!
