Under the Veil of Anonymity: Golden Features

Image

Golden Features, a mysterious figure at first, recently revealed his identity in a interview with Thump.  Within dropping his debut EP “Golden Features“, the producer quickly gained some recognition after Triple J, a radio station in Australia, aired some of his tracks in February. Porter Robinson supported the EP quickly after. Gaining thousands of views within days people started wondering just who is this anonymous producer, and is he new? 

Turns out he is none other than Tom Stell, an Australian producer from the duo Kyro & Bomber, making big room house. “To be honest with you, I didn’t love it anymore. I wasn’t enjoying it”, Stell stated in the interview, “felt like I was forcing something. That I was just trying to fit into what everyone else was doing, because it seemed like the easy option.” Coming from a history “hip hop guys like MF Doom” and dance house influences like Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers, Stell was looking for more of his own style of music that can stand out on its own. 

“The whole idea of the Golden Features project is to turn myself into an artist that people actually go to see for their own music.” explaining further “I don’t want people to be hung up on the anonymity thing because, in my mind, it’s not important. It’s the music”. A real idea that gives a breath of fresh air to the EDM scene as more producers are getting more creative and moving away from the same old, same structured “big room house” music and into whatever they want!

Golden Features is set to play at HARDstraylia, Hard‘s Debut Australian tour ran by Destructo.

Savoy, LoBounce & Bright Lights release new single “S.C.R.E.A.M.” [Free Download]

Savoy & LoBounce just released another track together alongside vocalist Bright Lights. These producers are proving to be a perfect match for each other. They have recently worked on 2 tracks “Cata” & “Nothing Stays The Same“, which featured on Savoy‘s previous album “Self Predator”, that produced some deep vibes and crunchy bass lines that put a fresh spin on electronic music.

It is good to see LoBounce, a Chicago native, experiment and evolv with different styles. It has been well noticed in his recent EP “Rave and other recent tracks like his collab with Dirty Monkey “Pull Up” (and in his live sets I have seen personally in Chicago). Combine him with Savoy, whom isn’t shy to experiment with more than one BPM styles as well, and Bright Lights mesmerizing vocals in the equation and you got yourself the perfect track to vibe to.

Skrillex launches Free-Release Label with AC Slater’s Back To The Floor EP

Image

Skrillex seems to never miss headlines this past year so far, expanding his music empire and reaching out to fans persistantly. With his recent album release “Recess”, in which he collabed with artists Diplo, Kill The Noise, Chance The Rapper, Ragga Twins, Alvin Risk, etc. and headlining Coachella and possibly Lollapalooza, Skrillex isn’t showing any signs of stopping with yet another label (aside from OWSLANest under Nest HQ. 

“The concept of Nest HQ is simple really. It is a transparent vantage point into this culture that we all share and have created together” it reads on their website. “Its origins began with a global network of like-minded people who love to share their passions for music and art. Nest HQ is a window into this culture…” and it certainly is with AC Slater debuting this exclusively free-to-download label Nest with his 5-song EP “Back to the Floor”.

This whole EP will leave you in a groove you haven’t felt before, with some addictive basslines and raw synths, each song will have you like WHOA… In another state of mind. If you listen to the whole thing you’ll know what I mean. It would seem that AC has achieved his intentions stating in an interview on Nest HQ, “I want to focus more on the music and how it makes the individual feel. Everyone having their own experience and vibing out in the club rather than watching someone tell them what to do. It’s okay to zone out and get lost in the music.” That it is and with this idea behind his ep, these tracks would definitely attract a more intimate vibe on the dance floor.

It’s refreshing to see artists like AC Slater releasing tracks with their own style and originality. Bringing the crowd back to more vibin music, beats you can breathe and really dance too, inspiring a whole new crowd of music lovers to be more creative!

With all that being said! Check out the AC Slater’s Back to the floor ep below and as promised by Nest, it’s a free download.
