Okay, take every pre-conceived notion you have of Knife Party and throw them out the window. It is time for a re-vamped Knife Party and they are expressing their new sounds through their latest and greatest Haunted House EP available now on all major outlets. The four track EP features tunes that show a new side to the Knife Party project. Featuring sounds that remind us of how much we love to dance, Knife Party has taken a journey through the electro-house side of dance music. The first three tunes of the EP are a roller coaster of bass, 4×4 breaks, and insanely technical synth progressions. The final track, a variation in production of their hit tune “Internet Friends” reminds us of how much damage Knife Party can influence on a sold-out sweaty crowd. When Knife Party comes on the speakers, it’s time to get down!
FINALLY!!!!! We can all celebrate a bit because Daft Punk has finally and officially resurfaced! Coupled with just about as much anticipation as one single album can contain, Daft Punks upcomingRandom Access Memories album will clearly be one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the past years. Now, we are blessed to be able to purchase the first single from the album, “Get Lucky“. The tune which features Pharrell Williams and also some studio work from Nile Rogers (pretty sure), is everything we have wanted from Daft Punk. It is as if they took the last 6 years to slow cook this album into a succulent and perfected gem. We will be keeping you posted with all Daft Punk news but for now, check out “Get Lucky” to hold you over!
Strap on your space boots boys and girls, it’s time to get stompin! Lunice & Hudson Mohawke a.k.a TNGHT have released an incredibly bangin’ track entitled Acrylics. I’m not too sure what type of extra-curricular activities these Canadian/Euro producers participate in while they are collaborating however, I encourage them to keep it up because the end results make me want to never sleep again. The mega trap beat is the most appropriate soundtrack for a battle between alien dinosaurs and zombie sea creatures during the second coming of Christ. As one listener’s comment on soundcloud suggested, it is music for “the boss level on Mario.” Boss indeed. If you like this song, I recommend you listen to TNGHT’s self-titled EP. With 172,111 plays in 2 days on Soundcloud, I expect to hear bits of Acrylics in many late-night tent trap DJ sets this summer. Rage!
It is time to take a break from your Tuesday. Turn your speakers up or put in your ear buds because we have a doozy for you. Trap music allstarsFlosstradamus and DJ Sliink have teamed up to officially release Nomads EP. The 3 track EP backed by Fool’s Gold Records features two originals, a high energy bass banger entitled “Crowd CTRL” and a familiar sounding tune “Test Me” that has been popping up in setlists for both artists recently. Finally to cap off the release, ƱZ joins force with the duo to remix “Test Me” turning it into a technical masterpiece. It is great to watch the three of these trap taste makers team up for a release like this and we surely hope there is more to come! You can purchase the release on iTunes or stream it from Soundcloud!

It’s time for another spectacular release from Fool’s Gold. This time from Texas future bass producer duo Bames with their DRTY BWTY EP. The young beat connoisseurs have been steady on the grind working on polishing this 6-track EP into the beast that it is. Dropped a few days ago, we predict this release will jet Bames to the tip of every bass enthusiasts’ tongues. The album features a collection of spun-out sounds that will send your brain and body into a dancing spiral. To us, Bames is evidence that there is more to bass music then just dirty drops and teeth grinding synths. Bames is smooth, classy, and gangster all in one. We cannot watch the Austin Texans take their project to the next level! You can purchase Bames’ DRTY BWTY EP now on iTunes and be sure to keep your eyes and ears on Bames as they are sure to have more enticing tunes soon.
Every now and then two great producers team up for a hit. It is clear that this is the case when Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner‘s decided to collaborate on Mau5′s Album Title Goes Here, on a tune entitled “Channel 42″. Now, Mau5trap and crew want to show fans of the tune what’s up with some banging remixes from badmen GTA, Canadian producer Eekkoo, and Scotland’s own Nom De Strip. The remixes complete the release offering an assortment of vibes from the hit tune. We expect and hope to hear these remixes dropped by DJs large to small all throughout this Summer. We dig all the “Channel 42″ remixes and we think you will too! Grab your DL now from iTunes or Beatport and check out a couple of the remixes below:

Excision and Ajapai have teamed up for a home run with “Blast Off” out now on Destroid Records. The song has a super up-beat flow with Excision’s signature heavy metal esque drops. This track makes us want to mosh. The type of music you put on before you play in a football game. We imagine Ndamukong Suh somewhere in Detroit with Excision banging through his headphones. This music is heavy hitting and we love it! Make sure you have a listen on Youtube and you can purchase the tune off iTunes and Beatport today! Bang away:
