There’s been a ton of good stuff getting released lately. I have so many favorites and on repeat. Here’s a few I’ve been listening to this week.
About 10 months ago The M Machine released the first part of the Metropolis EP. This electronic trio finally released the second part of Metropolis on OWSLA’s label. The newest addition dropped yesterday. I have been a HUGE fan of The M Machine ever since I saw them last July when they opened for Porter Robinson. They are the definition of true electronic music. They’re “indie-styled” vocals and electronic dance sound make them one of kind. The vocals and live production are what made me fall in love with them. The new EP is fantastic. The 35 minute Metropolis mix on their soundcloud gives you a taste of their EP. The opening song ‘The Palace (feat. Blake Hazard)‘ starts off with piano lines, introduces awesome vocals from Blake Hazard, and drops into a hard hitting electronic song. Their unique sounds make them stand out from the rest. ‘Ghosts In The Machine (feat. pennybirdrabbit)‘ offers a smooth electronic sound with indie vocals that give the song emotion. ‘Schadenfreude‘ is one of my favorites from the EP. The vocals and the different use of sounds, synths, and the drops make it appealing to the ears. Last, but not least is ‘Luma‘. This is my absolute favorite on the EP. It opens with a piano ‘piece” that has a beautiful sorrow sound and builds into an electronic sound that flows so nicely with the opening piano lines. It is the perfect ending to the EP. This EP tells a story of its own. Each song has its own emotion and sound. Make sure to add this to your OWSLA collection. It’s available for purchase on Beatport and iTunes.
Who doesn’t love a great Lana Del Rey remix? She is one of my favorite artists and her voice transpires well over to electro house, house and dubstep remixes. I was happy to that Cedric Gervais worked his magic on this one. This house remix offers a big drop that makes you want to dance. This is definitely one of my favorite remixes to a Lana song so far. This remix is available for purchase through Beatport. It’s a great one to start your day!
Steve Aoki is back at it again with more remixes! The newest remix EP is for his song ‘Come With Me (feat. Polina)‘ from his album ‘Wonderland‘, which dropped back in January 2012. The EP has remixes from ArkAngel, Pierce Fulton, Lazy Rich, Jidax, Doorly, and Deorro. Each artist has put a new twist to the song. There is so much flavor in this EP. The house, electro house, and dubstep variety give you something new with each song. I really enjoy the Doorly and Lazy Rich remixes! Make sure to grab this one off Beatport and turn it up!
I just recently discovered XVII trap. The 17 year old from Canada has been hard at work putting out original trap remixes. This is a short preview he recently posted to soundcloud! ‘I Love You So‘ by Cassius is a crowd favorite and the new trap approach is executed well by XVII. Make sure to check out his soundcloud to hear original remixes and get downloads.
This is one you can’t pass up! ƱZ is back with a new remix to Zeds Dead song ‘Cowboy (feat. Omar Linx)‘. ƱZ keeps its Zeds Dead sound, but incorporates his signature trap sound. I didn’t think that this song would turn into such a great trap remix, but I love it! It wasn’t over done and kept the essence of the original. Add this to your trap collection and turn up! Also Make sure to check out Torro Torro’s remix as well for a fresh new take!
