Kill Paris-Space Forest-Single Art

LA / Boulder based producer Kill Paris has released two successful EPs with Skrillex’s OWSLA record label, but recently announced the launch of his very own record label Sexy Electric Records. The first release on the label will be his debut studio album Galaxies Between Us, and today we have the premiere of the very first song “Space Forest”. 

The song has Corey, aka Kill Paris experimenting with some new sounds and styles as we get a spacey, ambient electronic journey. Some people call it Future Bass, Kill Paris is calling it "Heavy Chill", which makes sense after listening. Before you have a second to realize what just happened the song is gone as quickly as it came, leaving you wanting so much more. This only gets us excited for what else this album has in store for us. Listen to the premiere below and grab an exclusive free download for our readers.

Kill Paris is also embarking on his biggest run of shows to date with a full North American headline tour stopping at over 40 cities. He will also be bringing around TSIS favorite Louis Futon as direct support for most of the tour, and Bees Knees will be supporting as well. See the full list of dates below. Enjoy!

Kygo continues to cement his rise to the top by releasing an official music video for his debut original single "Firestone" featuring singer Conrad. The video's story line is a guy chasing a girl, but done in a very unique fashion. He runs through buildings, and ends up at a house party that Kygo is playing and what looks like a cameo from Dillon Francis. As he storms through the doors in what seems like an alternate reality, ultimately ending with his prize. It's a cool video that brings an amazing single to life. Watch below and you can pick up your own copy through iTunes today. Enjoy!

Bassnectar Rage Against The Machine

From his extra heavy music choice, to his energy filled sets and metal like hair and headbanging, Bassnectar is without a doubt the metalhead rock figure within the electronic world. This makes this newest bit of news all the more fitting as Bassnectar just shared a photo of himself with Tom Morello of iconic rock metal band Rage Against The Machine in the studio with the caption:

"In the studio with Tom Morello, raging against machines!!!"

He has played various bass infused metal bootlegs over the years, even including a remix of Rage's "Killing In The Name Of" in his live sets, so this is quite a natural collaboration. As we sit and patiently wait for whatever magic the two have cooked up you can get an idea of what it might sound like by listening to Bassnectar's remix of "Seek & Destroy" by Metallica below.

Posted in Bangin, Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , ,

Louis Futon Press Pic Resized

Louis Futon has had quite an eventful 2015 so far, with a hugely successful self-titled Louis Futon EP released as a free download alongside two huge remixes of both ODESZA and Just A Gent. Today the new music continues as he takes on breakout rapper G-Eazy and his single "Let's Get Lost" from his #1 studio album which features smooth vocals from Devon Baldwin. 

He completely reimagines the song, layering in some unbelievable new drums that set the tone for the track. Future bass, trap, and even some house elements are all fused with a defined hip-hop edge for a genre explosion that you won't be able to stop listening to. The result reminds me of Louis' career starting bootleg of Mos Def's "Ms. Fat Booty"  in the best way possible. Looks like there is a limited free download so grab it while available. Enjoy!

The eerie, minimalist production on “Cold Stares” provides the perfect base for Chance to offer his somber crooning and a spoken word verse, showing us a different side of Chance. He has been working on both a collaborative project with his Social Experiment band with Donnie Trumpet, as well as his highly anticipated debut studio album. Nosaj Thing’s album Fated is due May 5th via Innovative Leisure. Enjoy!
