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.

An unlikely pairing between German techno producer Boys Noize and Brooklyn trap beatmaker Baauer for a string of upcoming US nationwide shows titled The Run X tour has paved the way for something much more! The two commodities within dance music joined forces outside of sharing the same stage to create "Fire Like This", a collaborative release that fully flexes their individual skill sets perfectly. Bringing together gritty electro basslines, a looping schoolyard chant, various percussion elements, and a touch of trap aesthetics, the two conjure up a single that is too enticing to just play once and will surely have dance-floor's across the world popping off when played out live. This heater is being handed out as a free download and I strongly urge you to add this release to your music library as soon as possible. Enjoy

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

Gesaffelstein Attempts To Redefine French House and Techno in Game Changing Full Length Album “Alpeh LP” : Album Review and Full StreamPosted in Album Review, Bangin, Mixtapes / Albums by Bryan | Tags: Aleph, French Electro, Gesaffelstein, Pursuit, Techno, Video
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
