[PREMIERE] Rising Producer Fakear Delivers Bright New Single "Ankara" Off Debut Album

Fakear Ankara

Rising producer Fakear has just announced his forthcoming debut album Animal due June 10 via Counter Records, who has released music with artists such as ODESZA, Tiga, and more. The French producer has been gaining recognition for his uplifting sound design as he’s gained cosigns from DJ Snake, M.I.A., ODESZA, and AlunaGeorge. 

Today Fakear has unveiled the latest single “Ankara” off Animal. This first glimpse at the album delivers an uplifting sound filled with smooth glitched female vocal chops and swirling synth melodies to make for a bright track. According to Fakear, the inspiration for “Ankara” comes from  ”the memories of the terrorist attack in Turkey, that happened just before the Paris one. It's an angry song to me, but with still this note of hope, no war can reach the love !” Stay tuned for more from the album, and enjoy!

Deadmau5 Releases His First Official Single In Over Two Years “SnowCone”

Deadmau5 Snowcone

Ambient and experimental best describe deadmau5's latest release on his imprint, Mau5trap. The chilled-out production, appropriately titled "Snowcone," is piloted by a hip-hop structure that gradually draws in its listeners over the course of five minutes.

While a work-in-progress of his collaboration, "Beneath With Me" with Kaskade and Skylar Grey, dropped a few weeks ago, "Snowcone" is the producer's first official release in quite some time.

The outspoken act, known for expressing both his candid thoughts and music updates on Twitter, casually closed out a rant yesterday (May 26) by saying, "need a little more filler crap for the album thing." No date or further details have been revealed regarding his forthcoming LP, but be sure to stay tuned to TSIS for any updates on the matter.

[PREMIERE] Pegboard Nerds, NGHTMRE & Krewella Join Forces For “Superstar”

Krewella Pegboard NGHTMRE
The mega collaboration between Pegboard Nerds, NGHTMRE and Krewella is finally here. Amid robust touring and release schedules, the three acts were able to join forces in the studio to create "Superstar," which is out now on Monstercat.
The grungy bass record boasts an aggressive lead that is closely bound by an elastic vocal sample and firm snare hits. "Superstar" is primed for any high-powered environment and will certainly bring out the passionate head-bangers.
With respect to the collaborative process, Alex and Michael of Pegboard Nerds said they had "a few sessions together, as well as some across-the-globe communication to get the track done." The duo, who recently wrapped their Nerds By Nature tour, added, "We did one session with NGHTMRE getting an idea going and then we all came together for one session in L.A. where the girls wrote their lyrics to the track in it’s state at the time."
"I definitely learned a lot of technical skills from this collaboration," says Tyler (NGHTMRE). "The Pegboards Nerds guys introduced me to some really cool plug-ins for manipulating vocals and synths that I use all the time now!" Fans of the bass producer may hear some of the newly acquired knowledge in his new production, "Need You," with Dillon Francis.
While the track's title is befitting to the artists involved, it wasn't necessarily planned that way. "We actually wrote three different hook ideas," says Krewella, "They ended up running with "Superstar."" The message behind the lyrics certainly spoke true to Yasmine and Jahan.
"I was thinking about someone so dear to me who was at a low point in their life when I wrote it. In our society we often let achievements, success, fame, or status shape our self worth and sense of importance on this earth. Writing the song felt like I was sending a message to that person as a reminder that none of the superficial shit determines their value to me."
Listen to the premiere of "Superstar" below and let us know what you think!
