Very few remix producers can consistently impress us the way that Flechette has over the past few months. Beginning with huge Nero and Gesaffelstein remixes, Flechette is quickly making a name for themselves by creating some of the most massive tune takeovers we have ever witnessed. Now, Flechette has done a number on a very housy tune by Boxon Records artist, Polen on the tune “Would You“. Part of an official remix compilation, Flechette is the standout on the release. From start to finish, this track will have you feinding for a blunt and a double cup. Flechette is in the business of keeping it gangster and they are damn good at it. You can purchase this tune now and bump it loud!
It’s hard to bring up electronic music without eventually coming to the name Carnage. The founding father and organic branding genius behind his hit remix series of “Festival Trap” bangers, Carnage is also the man behind the hits that can be found on basically every performing dj’s setlist. Recognized by his fans as an artist who is not afraid to express his creative feelings through not only his music but his social media pages, Carnage has spoken out on issues like producers buying into “hype” to become more relevant and the pressures that genres can put on a producer’s arsenal of tunes. Saying what most in the scene are afraid to say, Carnage is here to stir up the pot.
Even if he were to never speak another word though, Carnage’s tunes speak for themselves. Carnage has a very unique way of getting any environment turned into a massive party. His high-energy packed sets rival Tiesto and SHM as far as giving the audience that… feeling. A producer and performer of just about everything, Carnage has deserving collaborations with artists like A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, Borgore, and the great Kaskade. There isn’t much Carnage hasn’t touched and those left undisturbed will only rest for so long until Carnage comes to bring the rage.
Carnage kicked off his “I’m Fucking Pumped” Tour last week with a special performance in Detroit and will continue on to perform on dozens of stops across the globe including dates in USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Ukraine, and Amsterdam, as well as announced festival appearances at Spring Awakening Music Festival, Sunset Music Festival, and EDC Vegas. With tons of new music coming soon, Carnage is proud to be releasing his upcoming single entitled “Signal” TOMORROW, May 3rd on Spinnin’ Records.
We were fortunate enough to be able to take the time to chat and catch up with Carnage the other day and we wanted to let you all in on our conversation. Check our our exclusive Q&A with Carnage below and make sure to catch Carnage when he comes to a venue near you! LISTEN & DOWNLOAD CURATED MUSIC EXCLUSIVE Q&A WITH CARNAGE ON SOUNDCLOUD:
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.
A few days ago up-and-coming hood beat producer from Portland, Gang$ign$ dropped his Amerika’s Most Blunted EPon STYLSS Records. The six track EP is Gang$ign$ breakout release and we expect this to catapult him into every playlist bumping trap music right now. Gang$ign$ is making some dank bass music and we know you will really enjoy bumping the hell out these tunes. Featuring samples pulled from A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown, and Three Six Mafia, Gang$ign$ knows what’s good! We feel like this is a dude that we would really get along with. This bass will turn your car into a club and will get you driving like a g. Get ready for a bass takeover from the trill Gang$ign$! Oh and it’s a free download! ENJOY!
Last August we had the honor of sitting down with prolific producer and turntable wizard RJD2 for the seventh edition of Curated Conversations. We discussed everything from touring at festivals to digging for records. RJD2 has been a household name in the beat and hip-hop communities since the early 2000′s and has experienced tremendous success since then. Where others who have followed in his footsteps have failed to capitalize on what’s in front of them, RJ has always done different. RJD2′s music speaks to generations of music lovers and he will forever be held in a spotlight as the producer that pushed boundaries and paved the way for many to follow. In the world of RJD2, he has just begun to show the world what he is all about. We are excited to see what is in the future for RJD2 and we are excited to present our interview with the brilliant producer. RJD2 is coming to our hometown of Detroit this Saturday, Feb. 12th at The Majestic Theater with our good friend SuperVision. You can get tickets through Detroit Dubstep here. Check out the interview and get down to some RJD2!

The new track, signed to Firepower Records, will be dropping for DL soon and features sounds that are unique only to the duo. Getting very close to writing the next dance anthem, Mayhem and Antiserum draw on subtle sitar samples and an insane 4×4 booty break. This tune is a certified club banger.
