Minnesota Shares Hard-Hitting New Single “HiLow”

hilow

Minnesota is back with one of his heaviest releases to date! Just last month we had the opportunity to premiere the Berkeley-based producer’s impressive 53-track set from the Oregon Eclipse Gathering, and today he’s proving that he has no intentions of slowing down with his latest single, “HiLow.” We’ve been waiting on this one for a while, as Minnesota’s been teasing it for weeks during live performances. Needless to say, we’re very impressed with how it turned out.

“HiLow” is no doubt one of Minnesota’s hardest creations ever. The track guides you in with atmospheric synth melodies, sharp percussion and ominous vocal samples shortly before exploding into a filthy drop. The breakdown alternates between those same otherworldly synths and some downright grimy bass that only deepens with each passing second, all with old school vocal samples mixed in perfectly. Check out the single, which is available for free download, below and enjoy!

[PREMIERE] Stream Minnesota’s Powerful Oregon Eclipse Gathering Set In Full

Minnesota 2017 Oregon Eclipse Set

Roughly a month ago, various artists and thousands of attendees gathered in rural Oregon for what will likely be a once in a lifetime event: a massive celebration of the total solar eclipse that took place on Aug. 21 of this year. The Global Eclipse Gathering was held from Aug. 17-23, bringing together people from all over to witness the eclipse together in the presence of art, music and community. Twelve collaborators from across the globe collaborated to host the gathering, which took place at Big Summit Prairie, a picturesque private ranch located in the extensive Ochoco National Forest. Everyone from Bassnectar to The Glitch Mob performed, and today we have the exciting opportunity to premiere Minnesota’s explosive set from the festival.

It’s no surprise that Minnesota brought vigorous energy to the entirety of this set – his genre-blending, glitch-hop/dubstep style has electrified festival stages and dancefloors alike for years now. Beyond this intensity, he tied in warbly bass lines and trippy synth patterns to really drive the unique atmosphere of this gathering home. The producer incorporated a healthy 53 tracks into the set; in addition to plenty of his own music, songs like RL Grime’s “Stay For It,” Bassnectar’s intense take of Noisia’s “Get Deaded,” Ekali and Krane’s “Akira,” Noisia’s remix of What So Not’s experimental “Divide & Conquer” and much more appear throughout. Enjoy!

Lido's "So Cold" Receives Impressive Rework From Minnesota

Lide Minnesota Side By Side

Minnesota has just remixed Lido's track "So Cold" off his debut LP Everything and we absolutely love it. The amount of creativity and originality Minnesota injects into the production is not only impressive, but refreshing.

The original track is pretty minimal, featuring a distorted bassline, heavy drums and a catchy vocal hook that Lido uses throughout the album. Minnesota adds some vivid imagery to the song and adds a rich piano melody under the vocal hook to give the production more emotion. He also tastefully incorporates some pitched-down vocal chops that blend it perfectly with the rest of the mix. 

After about a minute, we hear a unique electric guitar-sounding riff that's mixed with crisp future bass synths. The remix goes through several styles, energies and moods in such a smooth way that will have you captivated until the very end. Listen to Minnesota's remix of "So Cold" by Lido below and enjoy!
