The explosive bass oriented duo known as Knife Party have kept themselves busy in the studio over the last few months working on a new album and they recently revealed some exciting details on the upcoming release via Twitter. The full lenght debut artist album will be titled Abandon Ship and will feature 12 tracks with 9 of them already complete and scheduled for the album, 5 in the "maybe, maybe not" pile and another 5 in the early stages of creation. If any of these tracks are close the the madness contained on Knife Party's most recent Haunted House EP, we can surely expect a major contender in the highly anticipated electronic music albums whenever they decide to unleash the fury. We hope to at least here some of new album this coming weekend when we attend the 3rd annual Spring Awakening Music Festival in Chicago, IL and if so, expect details to be shared on the site! Until then… Enjoy
Album update: 9 of 12 tracks confirmed, 5 in the "maybe" pile, 5 in the "ideas" stage. 2 weeks til mastering.

Genre blending and crafty innovations in sound design best describes the work of UK native and OWSLA / MTA Records producer Moody Good much anticipated self-titled artist album which hits shelves on June 2nd and 3rd in its respective regions. With the whole album available to stream on SoundCloud now before the release, we've dissected the robust 15 track offering which showcases a vast collection of forward think breaks, gritty bass influxes, UK garage stylings, and transitions between tranquil and savage synth patterns featured throughout.
My personal favorites are the collaborations with two highly coveted songstresses, Eryn Allen Kane on "Musicbx" and Haleighblu on "Living Off The High" & "Bubbles", where the chill bass instrumentals allow the ladies to flow some sultry R&B soaked lyrics over the production. From start to finish the album takes takes less an hour to digest, but within that minute amount of time the beauty of Moody Goods meticulous perfection in each song is apparent and inspiring with this solo endeavor from his previous days as 1/2 of 16bit proving to be fruitful. Stream and pre-order the release below, but above all… Enjoy

The tour kicks off on August 28th in Vancouver and will run all throughout the US and Canada ending in Miami on October 18th. He is bringing out the very talented Norwegian live electronic act Lemaitre, who will be opening up the night through the length of the tour. Although the dates are far later in the year, with his track record for live shows selling out and added excitement of the new album I wouldn't wait too long to grab tickets when they go on sale this Thursday at 10 am MST.
Pretty Lights turned heads new and old with the release of his Grammy nominated A Color Map Of the Sun album that incorporated the revolutionary production method of recording to vinyl then sampling his own vinyl to create each track. Throughout the multi-year process it took to create the album, he ended up having quite a few b-side tracks that never made the cut. He has released a very special vinyl full of the B-Sides and more remixes from his album called The Hidden Shades in spirit of Record Store Day that took place this Saturday (April 19th). While they are only available to own through the limited vinyl release, we have the full stream for your listening pleasure.
The release features 4 new originals alongside 4 remixes of those new tracks from Odesza, Blue Sky Black Death, Emancipator and Love and Light. We had a taste of the release with "Lost and Found" alongside the incredible remix from Odesza.

TSIS: Your debut album ‘Damage Control” includes over 15 tracks while other producers strictly releasing single after single, what inspired this bold statement?
MZ: It wasn’t really a conscious move to be honest. It was more for myself to experiment with new sounds and produce music that differs from my previous releases. Writing this album has been long process over the past 4 years and most of the tracks on the album now aren’t the same ones I started with back then… they’ve all evolved into different pieces and bits.
“This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into.”
TSIS: The album features not only Electro House, Trance, Drum & Bass, but Hip-Hop and Rock influences. Is this your life time of influences all conveyed into one cohesive project?
MZ: Yes. This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into. After listening to a bunch of different genres over the last few years, ‘Damage Control’ features the output of what I’ve made from hearing those styles of music.
