Feed Me, the man behind the infamous Teeth live performance rig is meticulous when it comes to engineering his sound design to ensure captivating fans far beyond the first listen. As Feed Me readies himself for a nationwide Psychedelic Journey tour kicking off this August, he drops his newest original "Patience" from an upcoming EP release on his very own Sotto Voce label. The track follows in the same vein as previous releases "Time For Myself" and "Alarm Clock" with Feed Me conjuring an electro-infused foundation that beats like a pulse before rushes of warping bass patterns and glitchy synth twists take this into a whole new direction. It's more than just a new single, but a journey within the ever evolving electro spectrum that Feed Me knows all to well. This exclusive premiere is available for stream only for now, but be sure to pick up the full EP available this Friday July 11th! Enjoy

Lunice Releases New Single “Can’t Wait To” With Music Video

Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: , ,

lunice

Well the powerhouse duo of TNGHT has taken a break for both Hudson Mohawke and Lunice to focus on their solo careers. Lunice, a Montreal native is back with his first original offering since the split. "Can't Wait To" is a chilled out atmospheric blend of rap and electronic elements coming together for a solid trap instrumental. The song is delivered with some intriguing visuals featuring Lunice dancing with beams of light I've found out are from N9 lights on Lexus cars. Hate to say it but shouts to Lexus for possibly the most tasteful ad placement I've ever seen. This new single from Lunice could mark the first from his upcoming solo album set to release on LuckyMe Records sometime this year.  Listen below in full and we will keep you updated on the official release. Enjoy!

Dillon Francis is not only known for being one of the biggest producers / DJs on the planet but consistently keeps his fans captivated thru his many alter ego's with the deep house obsessed moniker DJ Hanzel being his most adored one. Hanzel quest to go "one deeper" is portrayed hilariously on Dillon's social media channels (which you can view the Youtube video's below for proof)  and though we've  seen brief glimpses of an actual live set, we now have a brand new mix Hanzel put together for infamous radio personality Annie Nightingale BBC Radio 1 program. It's 30 minutes of the deepest house music one could ever assemble on gods green earth for your audible pleasure and even comes with a free download to take the party on the road. With Dillon Francis debut studio album Money Sucks, Friends Rule scheduled for release this month via Diplo's Mad Decent label, we cannot wait to see what him and perhaps Hanzel have in store for us all. Enjoy
