The LuckyMe label is currently dominating the site this week with Cashmere Cat dropping a brand new mix, Hudson Mohawke finally releasing “Chimes” and EP details, and now Glasgow ace Rustie releasing the next single off his upcoming album. The duo had already linked up on Danny Brown’s “Side B (Old Song)”, so the chemistry was already high between the two. Linking up with rapper Danny Brown on a sizzling collaboration. “Attak” features a trap styled future sounding foundation which allows for Danny Brown to go in viciously on verse after verse while bass twists and a warping synth pattern complete the track to a T. This only has us more excited for his upcoming album Green Language set to release in August, with more details coming soon. Enjoy

BRANX has blossomed into an exciting act within the past few months thanks to being signed to Gramatik's Lowtemp label which we featured the single "Sauce". The New York based producer is here with his debut release Look But Don't Touch EP that follows in the same stride of electro-soul pioneers before him. The unsuspecting build of “Watermelon Bubblegum” springs to life blending funk elements into a powerful electro house anthem. The grooviest of vibes are displayed on “Smooth Operator” and “Lavender Avenue” each encompassing the type of goodness that will have you dancing instantaneously wherever you may be. Altogether, BRANX has stepped up and made his talents known in the most creative of manners on this release; if this is spills over into a run of shows, then I strongly urge you to consider seeing the man do his thing in the flesh. Listen to the exclusive premiere and don't miss out on grabbing a free download via Lowtemp. Enjoy!

[TSIS PREMIERE] SNAILS – SNAILED IT! Mix Vol 1. Coming To America : Must Hear Bass Mix Of All Unreleased SongsPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: #SNAILEDIT!, Kannibalen, Mix, OWSLA, SNAILS
SNAILS is currently in the middle of a full takeover of the somewhat stale bass world with his extra weird style you can't forget thanks to everyone from Skrillex to Diplo playing out all his tracks like the recent "Wild" collaboration. He continues the takeover by dropping off his first mix ever to celebrate him playing his first tour of shows in the US. So we have Snailed It Mix Volume 1 : Coming To America edition, and since of course SNAILS wanted to make it even more unique and has gone and only included unreleased tracks on the mix leaving us scrambling to figure out who they could be. We can see and hear that there are a handful of brand new unreleased SNAILS tunes that sound absolutely insane right out the gate; and there are also a collection of unreleased tunes from some of his homies like Datsik, Must Die!, Paper Diamond & Protohype and many more still all labeled as ID. It's easily one of the most exciting bass mixes I heard in longer than I can remember. He is also making the mix interactive releasing all the artist names once it breaks 100k plays and the track titles every 25k after that. View Full Track-List below.
This also comes with the announcment of SNAILS playing his first ever shows in America. He will be kicking off his run of shows with a last minute suprise announced peformance at HARD Summer followed by his first headline US show at The Yost Theater in Orange County.

LA producer and DJ Kill The Noise always delivers a steady stream of originals and remixes on Skrillex's OWSLA and his very own label Slow Roast Records. Jake smashes everything in sight and has stepped up to Gent & Jawns trap anthem from the past "Turn Up" to pour some feverish electro vibes and big bass drums into the original. It thumps in all the right ways and I'd be surprised if you were able to contain yourself. Listen to the release below and grab a copy via Gent & Jawns new Faded EP out on Mad Decent now. Enjoy

We recently heard "Can't Wait To" from Lunice, the first offering from his solo record earlier this month and today we get the latest news on the other half of TNGHT, Hudson Mohawke. This song "Chimes" was first debuted back in 2012 during TNGHT live shows and a live video of them playing the song at Trans Musicales surfaced online, which was actually one of the first things to get me hooked on the duo. The song starts with an unforgettable eerie synth quickly escalating to some relentless 808 filled drops and some chopped up effects leaving the listener with an unreal amount of energy for such a short song. This is the first track to be released of Hud Mo's upcoming brand new Chimes EP, featuring 4 new songs set to release September 30th via Warp Records.
The song was also just used in the latest Apple ad for MacBook Pro centered around stickers. Watch ad below
