There’s so much music coming and going it’s hard to stay on top of it all. Songs are constantly getting stuck in our head, a fact we’ve grown to accept over here. Every now and then we’ll bring you a round up of tunes currently igniting our synapses. Like these songs here…
Zedd “Slam The Door”
If you‘re not already familiar with this guy, it’s about time you get started. Zedd, originally from Germany, got his start winning two huge remix contests on Beatport. Next thing you know, he’s doing collab after collab with some of the top producers releasing tracks for Mau5trap and eventually signing on with Skrillex’s OWSLA. Keep an eye out for this young producer and his beastly electro house jams.
Knife Party “Internet Friends”
“Internet Friends” is just one of those songs that you get stuck in your head for days. We’ve grown to accept the calming voice of SIRI. Well Knife Party decided to take some funny SIRI samples and iPhone sounds and throw them all in a track. Not to mention, completing the track with a lead riff that just kills it. For all of you that happen to be out of the loop, Knife Party is actually a side project from the Australia drum/rock group, Pendulum . They’ve got some great talent, look out for them in the future.
Mord Fustang “We Are Now Connected”
This is one of my favorite guys to come on the scene. He’s got some super unique synth sounds with those lingering arpeggiated riffs and smooth transitions to his huge chord progressions, definitely to lets you know you’re hearing a Mord Fustang track. His past 5 tracks have been released on Miles Dyson’s Plasmapool label. If you don’t know this guy, time to take a listen, you won’t be disappointed with this Estonian producer’s skills.
Above And Beyond “You Got To Go” (Seven Lions Remix)
Jeff Montalvo (Seven Lions) has popped out of nowhere on the top Beatport charts, releasing his track on Anjunabeats. He’s got a unique sound on this track, bringing out his trance-y notes with a great vocal track and catchy melody. What I really appreciate is he doesn’t over wobble his bass and really keeps this track ambient and smooth; something you just wouldn’t expect from a Santa Barbara native.
Zeds Dead “Adrenaline”
"Adrenaline" is the newest Zeds Dead EP to hit the dubstep world. Of all the tracks in this EP, "Adrenaline" definitely slaps the hardest. Just listen to those hard hitting low frequency wobbles, giving us that classic UK dubstep sound. Reminds me so much of what you’d expect from a Doctor P track, but with those underlying tones we’re used to from Zeds Dead. This Canadian duo has been releasing some great music lately with such a new dubstep profile. Check out the Zeds Dead "Adrenaline" EP, released on Inspected Records, you won’t be disappointed.
