Netherlands beat maker GANZ who is known best for his "flips" of popular tracks like A$AP Rocky's "Ghetto Symphony", Flume and Hermitude's "Hyperparadise", Alison Wonderland's "I Want U", RL Grime x What So Not's "Tell Me" among many others is now releasing his second original EP titled Dino War through Plastician's Terrorhythm Recordings label based out of the UK.
We have the premiere of the single "Trophies" which is a forward thinking blend of both future bass and trap elements with bright chords and melodies, heavy drums and chopped up vocals all thrown into one seamless track. It's awesome to see him transcend his remix / flip style into originals that work just as well. Stream the premiere below and pick up the EP on iTunes April 20th. Enjoy

The public was led to believe that electronic indie duo Crystal Castles was a thing of the past since front singer Alice Glass announced her removal from the group last October. Well producer and songwriter of the duo Ethan Kath just wrote a pretty shocking and exciting new message letting everyone know that Alice was not even apart of the groups' most popular songs like "Untrust Us", "Crimewave", "Vanished" and more. He has also shareed a brand new song.
Ethan Kath shared this new song with this accompaning blurb: Moments later, Ethan has now removed most of this:
"i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. it should be rewarding for her considering she didn't appear on Crystal Castles' best known songs. (she's not on Untrust Us. Not In Love, Vanished, Crimewave, Vietnam, Magic Spells, Knights, Air War, Leni, Lovers Who Uncover, Violent Youth, Reckless, Year of Silence, Intimate, 1991, Good Time, Violent Dreams etc.). people often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, i didn't care."
You can stream the full song below and lets hope this is the first piece of a forthcoming new EP or even album from Crystal Castles in the near future.

It’s been impressive start to 2015 for budding Swedish producer Kasbo. Coming off a massive remix of Vance Joy’s “Riptide” that’s seen well over a million plays just a month after it’s release, the 19 year old producer has no plans of stopping and is already turning out another. This time he takes things back to last year’s summer hit “Don’t Tell Em” from Jeremih and YG and completely flips the track upside down. He highlights the vocals and immediately moves to a drum focused intro with some trap inspiration that then brings in atmospheric white noise and bright chords. The song borders the line of high energy and ambient for a combination you won’t forget. Listen to the song below and grab a free download thanks to Kasbo. Enjoy!
