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


Today we have something exciting from the trend setting electro/techno icon Boys Noize with the premiere of his "Strictly Raw Vol 1" nine track EP. The release celebrates 10 years of his label Boysnoize Records, featuring collaborations with Tiga, T.E.E.D, Pilo and more. This EP showcases many different sounds from BN while sticking to his raw, extra gritty roots. Here is some words from BN on the EP:

"The idea of the Strictly Raw Vol 1. release is to take 1 drumachine + 1 or 2 synths and make a track with it. Over the last years friends came in and out of my studio and sometimes we end up jaming on my machines. Since it’s #BNR10YR I wanted to collect the good ones and put them all together and there is some serious magic going on :) As a DJ you always look out for these timeless house or techno music and here are 8 tracks that go from breaks to techno to acid to classic house, all analog, all strictly raw !!" - Alex Ridha

Diplo Creates Anti-Drug PSA Video With Yellow Claw, Waka Flocka Flame For “Techno” Music Video

Posted in Bangin, Video by Jake | Tags: , , , , ,


Whether it's a new track or a music video serving as a public service announcement, everything Diplo touches seems to turn to gold. Heavyweight producers Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ teamed up with Diplo alongside Waka Flocka Flame on "Techno" last month, and now we get the visual interpretation of this tune. This dark video depicts the path drugs take from the source to the end user ultimately dying as a direct result from these drugs. With the amount of drug-related casualties that have been happening at music festivals and shows over the past couple years, this video serves as a P.S.A. to all music fans as the video ends with "Drugs Are Not Worth The Risk" displayed at the end of the video.

[PREMIERE] Boys Noize – Starwin (Boys Noize Bounce Version) : Disco / Bounce

Posted in Bangin, Premieres by Bryan | Tags: , , , , , ,


Whether collaborating with OWSLA kingpin Skrillex as supergroup Dog Blood or cultivating his signature sound alone, there is no question of German producer Boys Noize reign in and outside of the electronic music community. Possessing the sleek ability to commingle German techno with acid house and disco elements has made Boys Noize a personal favorite of mine for years and today we were blessed with the opportunity of premiering his latest undertaking for your listening pleasure. The infectious vibe oozing off the single "Starwin" is further enhanced by Boys Noize himself as he slows the tempo, adds hook samples and places a fresh kick drum pattern within. The "bounce version" captures the essence of the original, but delivers a new twist which we can't stop playing. Listen to the exclusive premiere below and grab Boys Noize Go Hard – The Remixes EP on digital download April 28th via Boys Noize Records. Enjoy

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

ASAP Rocky-Gesaffelstein-In Distress

After viewing the track-list for the highly anticipated Divergent Soundtrack, the collaboration bringing A$AP Rocky and Gesaffelstein together peaked our interest greatly as one of rap's biggest faces combines with one of electronic music's finest producers. "In Distress" see's both artists flexing their capabilities as one with A$AP Rocky letting loose a tirade of fresh verses while Gesaffelstein's French electro / techno relatively reserved foundation supples the same level of darkness featured on his debut album Aleph. Stream the track below and pre-order the most hyped motion picture soundtracks of the year here. Enjoy

Posted in Bangin, Mix / Playlist by nick | Tags: , , , , , ,


Tiësto will always be one of the most influential and talked about DJs on the planet. Headlining countless music festivals in every single country, releasing thousands of mixes and having a few artist albums under his belt. For the first time in years, Tiesto has returned to Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 program to lay down a brand new Essential Mix. The coveted 2 hour mix where an artist can step outside the box by unveiling unreleased material as seen by Nero, Eric Prydz and Skrillex or for an artist to show a completely different side, like Disclosure dropping an hour of straight hip-hop to start their mix last year. Steering almost entirely away from the expected progressive / electro house anthems, Tiesto showcases his newer side with an exciting blend of techno, deep house and future garage music; displaying some of the hottest tracks and the latest offerings from his Music Freedom label, like "Gecko" and even showcasing a fury of unreleased music. Stream the mix and look at the full track-list below. What are your thoughts on Tiesto's new direction of DJ style / genre choice?

Tiësto‘s Musical Freedom label has been known for more rave ready progressive house, electro house and trance anthems since 2009, yet now has been experimenting with some new sounds. Tiesto first previewed this unreal Tech House / Deep House titled ‘Gecko’ without the artist name a few weeks ago, and it grew speculation from the artist being anyone from Disclosure to Tchami. Well now we have the exclusive news that it is by Netherlands based Oliver Heldens and we also have the full track preview for you to obsessively replay until the song releases on December 30th on Musical Freedom.

Gesaffelstein Attempts To Redefine French House and Techno in Game Changing Full Length Album “Alpeh LP” : Album Review and Full Stream

Posted in Album Review, Bangin, Mixtapes / Albums by Bryan | Tags: , , , , ,


French techno god Gesaffelstein has released his debut album  Aleph worldwide. Having co-produced ‘Black Skinhead' & 'Send It Up’ on Kanye West’s new album Yeezus along with a handful of other impressive original releases under his belt including the captivating 'Pursuit', Gesaffelstein has drawn fans new and old to digest the full force of his musical talents. 'ALEPH' ALBUM STREAM LOCATED AT BOTTOM OF POST


Gesaffelstein (pronounced GRR-saff-ell-STINE) is a conjunction between the historical physicist Albert Einstein and the German word 'Gesamtkunstwerk', which stands for the perfectionism of art between image, sound and video. It is his unique scrutiny to the three aforementioned characteristics that has guided Gesaffelstein to the heights he has reached today. Consistently pushing the boundaries of electro/techno genres by offering a sinisterly dark, yet energetic twist to the norm is why Gesaffelstein is held in the same regard as Justice, Diplo, Brodinski, and Daft Punk.


Aleph weighs in at a modest 14-tracks and will take listeners less than one hour to complete in its entirety. Gesaffelstein's introduction track 'Out Of Line' sets the tone of the album perfectly as a melodic drum pattern is met with sharp burst of synths and an eerie females verbal tirade. From that point on, the ebb and flow of 'Aleph' is quite stunning and will lock listeners in a trance like state. For every cluster of tracks showcasing Gesaffelstein's gritty, raw French electro/house production, they are followed by one or two minimalistic tracks where the composition is so simple yet engages listeners to take an unknown journey into the depths of the Frenchman's mind.

One particular track has captivated the electronic music communities attention in the same manner as Skrillex's "Scary Monster and Nice Spirits" or Flux Pavilion's "Bass Cannon'". The broodingly energetic Pursuit is a hodgepodge of bone-chilling synths, waning sirens, and hard hitting drops. Throw in a few eerie chants that assist building the beat up and you have a song that when played makes any activity seem much cooler than you previously remembered. The official music video for 'Pursuit' serves as work of modern-day art as the storyline plays out images, inspirations, colors and movies that invoke Gesaffelstein's imagination.

Gesaffelstein – 'Pursuit' (From Aleph Album)

Without using samples or potential copyrighted material unlike many of his colleagues , Aleph stands tall in a league of its own by featuring 100% original music. If Aleph was to win an award for album of the year within its genre, it's because it serves as a testament for the evolution of production within electronic music. As for Gesaffelstein's future; it is as open as he'd like it to be. All we can do is wait with anticipation for what he has in store next. Enjoy

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

Deadmau5 has been releasing more previews via soundcloud of unreleased and sometimes in progress songs from his new album, and now finally get to hear 3 tracks that sound like potential album songs. The first and newest track he just dropped less then 4 hours ago “petspetspetspetspetspetspetspetsPETSpets” sounds like a rebirth to his insanely melodic anthem”Strobe” filled with mesmerizing synths. Next up we have “Sparrows Made Of Lead”, which is an 8 minute cinematic journey that reminding me of some more old school Deadmau5 with his song “Sometimes Things Get Complicated”. Then we get “Errors In My Head” which is another great track which Deadmau5 has temporarily included the vocals from his remix to Kaskad “I Remember”. Overall it seems like Deadmau5 is moving to some of his older roots, and I couldn’t be any more supportive. These are easily some of my favorite tracks I have heard him make in quite some time. Listen below and we will keep you posted on news on anything to do with release. Enjoy.
