Eprom & ZEKE BEATS Share Long Awaited Heavy-Bass Collab “Humanoid 2.0”

zeke beats eprom

For over a year now we’ve been poked, prodded and teased with snippets of Eprom & ZEKE BEATS’ long awaited collab. While we’ve been very content keeping Eprom’s recent Drone Warfare EP on repeat and ZEKE BEATS Devastate EP on close standby, having heard this one played out by the likes of G Jones, Bleep Bloop, Space Jesus, (controversially by) ATLiens & more, today we’re beyond excited that the wait is finally over for “Humanoid 2.0”.

This latest offering from the heavy-bass duo was definitely worth the wait. Although according to ZEKE BEATS 2.0 was originally slated for release back in April, as it is more-or-less a followup to Eprom’s 2010 “Humanoid”, to say this was a long time coming would be an understatement. Filled with deep, pulsing bass, skittering percussion, eerie robotic vocals and wonky, extraterrestrial gargles, you’ll definitely be out of your seat as soon as you hit play on this one. And if 2.0 dropping wasn't hype enough already, the track seems to have come as a dual release with a new, never before heard track from the duo titled "Soundboy Funeral". Check out “Humanoid 2.0” below and enjoy!

EPROM & Alix Perez Return As SHADES With Heavy Experimental Debut Album ‘In Praise of Darkness’

shades album

Four years ago, experimental bass music was forever changed with the inception of SHADES. Made up of heavyweight producers Alix Perez and EPROM, the duo’s 2015 self titled EP, became the first of numerous influential projects over the years, all culminating today with their debut album - In Praise of Darkness.

If you’ve been to a bass show in the past few months, chances are you’ve heard something off this latest offering. Coming to us off of Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label, In Praise of Darkness weighs in at a whopping 12-tracks - significantly longer than any other SHADES project to date.

From the very start, the LP’s structureless, elastic intro track, “Threnody”, sets the expectation that SHADES has once again pushed the boundaries of what bass music was, is and could be. Filled with eerie atmospheric soundscapes, trippy, machine-like sound design, skittering percussion some of the hardest basslines in the game, Alix Perez & EPROM take the listener through an intense sonic journey throughout the entirety of the project. Just when you think you’ve started to get comfortable with SHADES’ slow boom-bap-inspired production style, you’ll be transported to yet another level of the Dante’s Inferno-like underworld that the duo has masterfully created. Check out In Praise of Darkness below and enjoy!

Dirtybird Campout Announces Solid Lineup For 2018 West Coast Edition


Dirtybird’s bi-annual, summer camp themed, boutique music festival, Dirtybird Campout, has just announced their lineup for their West Coast edition this year. The lineup features over 50 different artists, with some bigger names than we’re used to seeing on a DBC lineup like: Gorgon City, Chris Lake, and Mark Ronson.

Of course, the Dirtybird crew will be in full force, bringing out the cream of their crop with Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Fisher, Walker & Royce, Shiba San, OMNOM, Catz ‘N Dogz, and more. And as always, there’s a couple wildcards thrown into the mix that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see at a house music festival. Old school rappers Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick will be performing this year, which I don't think anyone saw coming.

The festival is to take place from October 5-7, in another brand new location in Northern California: the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds. Attendees can expect a number of improvements to the festival with the new location, including reservoir water for swimming in, a setting full of shady trees and irrigated land, and a more intimate layout in general.

Check out the full lineup below, and follow this link for more information.
