Jauz Gets Real Smooth

jauz

Jauz is usually known for his hard hitting dubstep, trap remixes and originals. So when he comes out and releases smooth future bass and deep house mixes it comes to us as a surprise! Even adding a little trap elements of his own to make it a unique Jauz tune, he took one of Ed Sheeran‘s singles Sing off his new album and turned it into a nice dance tune. Taking the acoustic guitar and vocals and adding some heavy bass synths to a dance beat, this remix is perfect for a summer dance party playlist.

Jauz, just showing casing his talents as a artist, clearly has great variety of sounds & ideas in his head. His next remix has just as much ambience to it. This time Jauz placed his attention on Childish Gambino‘s track 3005. Adding loud bursting synths and bass patterns he turned this tune into a vibin summer hit. Best of all you can grab both of these tracks for free, so download them to your playlist and ride around bump them loud with the windows down!

Zeds Dead Somewhere Else Ep

zedsdeadsomewhereelse

DC & Hooks just released their new EP Somewhere Else on the first day of July. On this 8 track EP Zeds Dead brought back Omar Linx, who we all know to have worked with the Canadian duo on countless tracks, and Memorecks who worked on the single Jericho months prior. DC & Hooks also collabed with Big Gigantic, Bright Lights, Perry Farrell, Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy and Sean Price to give this EP such amazing vibes that differentiate between each song from smooth and fluid to heavy and wild. Somewhere Else really shows this duo’s abilities to evolve their sound and adapt with the times and audiences to stay relevant while keeping that distinctive sound we all love so much.

Before the release of this EP Zeds Dead dropped plenty of preview tracks for Somewhere Else to keep fans ready for the new release. They came through not only with sounds to satisfying our ears but with visual stimulation as well. They unleashed a real tripped out video for the track Lost You ft Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy. The psychedelic animations in the video reminiscent of a bad acid trip features melting faces and skulls, colorful animals and layering visuals with just about every color and pattern sequence you can think of. Check out the video below yourself.

Unloading previews and videos from the EP to fans might have seemed generous enough of them but check this out. Zeds Dead actually partnered up with bit torrent to give fans a package of free material from them. This package would include an unreleased track Love Me, full video of Lost You for you to own, the stems to their hit track Hadouken and their first EP Fresh Beets when they were just known as Mass Productions. Own all that and more when you download the bit torrent bundle here.

Salva switches over to Pop Music

Salva

In a recent interview with Thump, the Chicago native Salva discusses plans to “graduate”, as he says, from the underground scene. “I did the club culture heavy” he says, “I’m not done [DJing], I still love it, but everybody goes through phases.” It seems Salva is wants to take next step in his music career and reach out to a broader spectrum of artists and audiences.

Over the past few years as trap music was gaining popularity Salva has made his mark known, producing and remixing his own style of the genre. Having made some very successful collabs with artists like the Crookers & RL grime, he has a solid history with his sound which not only stays in the realm of trap & bass music, but also incorporates house and hip hop elements. One of his more recognizable songs and collaborations is with RL Grime on a remix of Kanye West’s Mercy.

But even though Salva has mastered the trap genre he shows a growing distaste for it, and he makes it very apparent in the interview. “Trap isn’t even cool anymore” he continues, “if we look at music the way we do fashion, that shit’s been out of season.” So the next step for Salva is to make new music on a larger scale that attracts new artists to work with him and his sound and get his name out there.

“I’m looking for a little more substance” he explains, “I’m just looking for something deeper than sound effects and kick drums.” What he is more interested in now is “making timeless actual songs, making something of substance that can be covered.” Salva is already making the moves to put his idea in motion. At the end of April he made a new record label, Peacemaker, and released a track “Drop That Bitch” with familiar artists such as Kurupt, Bad Lucc and ScHoolboy Q.

Keeping this pattern going Salva teamed up with Nick Hook to produce a song Old English with verses by Young Thug, Freddie Gibbz and A$AP Ferg. Tracks like Drop That Bitch and Old Enlgish definitely break more into the mainstream as Salva hoped. Big names like Gibbz and Ferg working with Salva will definitely help him reach his goal to have a more recognizable name in the music industry. Looking forward to hearing more tracks by Salva and who he works with. Get more details on his interview with thump here and check out his latest track below.

Bassnectar releases a couple new tracks off his highly anticipated new album NVSB, short for Noise Vs Beauty. To get us excited for the new LP Lorin gives away one of his singles as a free download. Working with Rye Rye on this track dubbed Now, this track reminds us why Bassnectar is one of the most recognizable names in the music industry. This wild tune fit with Rye Rye’s awesome hip hop vocals over Bassnectars signature bass synth sounds is just one of the styles you will be hearing on the new album.

This next track off the new album takes on a more smoother intracate vibe.  Starting off with a uplifting guitar riff and W Darling taking over the lyrics over Bassnectars bass synths, this track has a life of its own spreading positive energy. “It’s a love song, but it’s about friendship and family” Lorin tells Rolling Stone Magazine. “It’s about those basic human bonds of trust and loyalty, the feeling you get when you have a friend who will stand by you through thick and thin, no matter what, until the end” he continued, “I feel that You & Me is my anthem.”

The album is scheduled to be released on June 24th and Lorin is most excited to release this album in particular telling Rolling Stone “It is exactly how I envisioned it sounding…It explores the relationship between the extreme and often opposing forces of noise (loud, wild, hysteria) and beauty (deep, vulnerable, emotional).” Over the next few months Bassnectar will be promoting the new album on his tour through music festivals all over the world including TomorrowLand, Summer Camp Music Festival, EDC and Chicago’s very own North Coast Music Festival. You can pre-order the LP here on iTunes.

Nero is back with Satisfy

NeroSatisfy

After keeping silent for a long while Nero went to twitter with a single date: 13.05.14. On that day they delivered, and they are back with a new single Satisfy that did just that. Premiering the track on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 Show as “Hottest Record In The World”, Dan, Joe and Alana showcase their unique mystifying electro house style that many try to repeat, but none other than Nero can perfect. Starting out with Alana’s signature vocals then leading up to dark synths and a grinding bassline, Satisfy reminds the electronic music community where Nero stands. They were never gone, they are just getting started.  They announced on Twitter that their second album will be released in 2014 but with no specific date, so you can be expecting to hear more from them in the coming months. Follow Nero on Twitter and Soundcloud accounts to keep up with their latest updates.
