PREMIERE | Mysterious Artist ilo ilo Delivers A Funky Indie Electronic Single “come over”

The enigmatic and sharply rising new artist ilo ilo is back at it with a killer new track. We first became aware of ilo ilo’s music back in May of this year when we received a mysterious package in the mail that contained a USB stick with their first single ever, “wait,” and we were instantly drawn to their vibe. Today the curious artist drops another single “come over,” and it’s got an amazing, funky groove that you have to hear.

We don’t know much about ilo ilo, but we do know that she or he (or they?) prefer to not do things by the book. Not only is their sound extremely unique, but their style and direction is as well. Take one glance at ilo ilo’s Instagram and you can tell that they have been working this technique for a while, and they’re clearly very talented.

So far ilo ilo has released four tracks, and we’re super into all of them. We can’t wait to see how they develop and progress, and what they’re going to do next.

Stream the new track “come over,” below, which we’re thrilled to premiere, and enjoy!

ilo ilo – come over

PREMIERE | Rising Artist OMNOM Teams Up With Steady Rock On Bumping New House EP

Ever since OMNOM pulled up to Dirtybird Records with his massive summer single “Fo Free,” the young Los Angeles producer has been making some serious waves in the house community. Today, OMNOM teams up with another rising artist, Steady Rock, for a thick new EP via Box Of Cats (which is partly run by house maestro Kyle Watson)

The EP contains two tracks, “On Sight” and “Trippin Hazard,” and both are two huge bangers that are crafted to slap the hell out of your speakers. It’s no secret that OMNOM and Steady Rock are heavily influenced by the new age Dirtybird style of house music, which focuses on heavier-than-normal bass and fun, trippy sounds. Box Of Cats, as a label, takes that sound to the next level, amplifying the quirkiness while maintaining a solid groove for the dancefloor.

Both these new tracks will certainly get you of your seat and dancing as soon as you hit you play. Stream both “On Sight” and “Trippin Hazard” below and enjoy!

OMNOM & Steady Rock – On Sight / Trippin Hazard

PREMIERE | Rising Artist Super Duper Shines On Irresistible, Dreamy New Song “Vessels To You”

Rising artist Super Duper is just killing it right now. It seems he can do no wrong and we can’t wait to see how he progresses from here. The talented producer has been on a hot streak lately as he returns with another infectious new song “Vessels To You” that we have the pleasure of premiering today. This follows up his recent single “Horizons” we premiered as he continues to show off his dreamy sound we can’t get enough of. 

“Something very spiritual happened when I started writing this song. The vocals were a complete accident…meant to select and play a synth pad and instead I played chords using a vocal chops sampler I created and it made the jumbled vocals you hear now…just hearing that one little piece got me really excited. Then the main lead melody on the chorus came about randomly when I was looking for more synth chords to lay down…I would have never selected this kind of synth sound but it fit the mood perfectly for some reason. The rest of the song came together effortlessly…all within 2 hours which might not seem like that much of a surprise since it’s a fairly simple song but there was no second guessing or hitting a wall. And once I exported the song I didn’t spend much more time on it at all. I wanted it to feel a bit raw and in-the-moment so it feels closer to its initial spark. Too much polish and editing might have made it something else so I left it as is and that’s what you hear now.” - Super Duper

Super Duper has a unique sound on each of his releases that showcase his knack for lush sound design paired with irresistible melodies and expertly placed vocal chops all coming together for an uplifting style we can’t get enough of. Super duper is on tours with Kasbo and Petite Biscuit this fall so be sure to catch him if you can. Keep an eye on Super Duper and enjoy!

Boys Noize Shares Debut Hourlong Mix Under New Alias ELAX

Enigmatic producer Boys Noize has always kept a low profile when it comes to projects. Having gone by numerous names over the years including as Dog Blood with Skrillex, today the German electro veteran has just shared the first ever mix under his new alias ELAX.

Over the years we’ve seen a great deal of artists bring back or branch out to new projects. As we recently saw this with deamau5’ Testpilot & Porter Robinson’s Virtual Self, although considered somewhat a bold move, it’s always exciting to see what comes of the switch-up.

With Boys Noize having dropped his first track as ELAX only a few months ago, we’re finding this latest house/tech-fusion mix, while at the same time reminiscent of the unique sound we’ve come to know and love from Boys Noize, perfectly blurs the lines between retro, minimal 4/4 structures and gritty, thumping electro. As Boys Noise gears up to embark on Destructo’s new All My Friends Friendship Festival cruise as both himself and ELAX, make sure to keep an eye out for more to come from the new alias. Stream the mix below and enjoy!

Brasstracks & Pell Connect On Soulful New Hip-Hop Collab “Vibrant”

Brasstracks and Pell are favorites of ours and just proved to be a perfect combo with each other. With Pell always finding a way to bring the soul, it makes sense these two would join forces for a release together on their new song “Vibrant.”

“Vibrant marks the beginning of a new chapter for us. We always wanted to make a song with Pell, the guy can do everything. So we sent him this Timbaland inspired, bass heavy joint laden with our signature live horns and drums. And this is how it turned out. We hope you enjoy Vibrant, featuring Pell. – Brasstracks

This new track is the first single off Brasstracks forthcoming project and serves as the name of Brasstracks next tour kicking off in January. Brasstracks bring their signature soulful horns, but switch things up on production going more hip-hop / R&B than some of their previous production incorporating some electronic influences. Check out the new collab below and enjoy!

Rezz Confirms That “Rezz Rocks” Will Be An Annual Event

It looks like there will be a longstanding relationship between one of the most beloved electronic artists in the U.S. and one of the most beloved venues in the U.S. Rezz has officially announced via Twitter that her performance at Red Rocks will be an annual reoccurrence

Fans who were at her show this year know that her sold out Red Rocks debut was one of the best concerts at the historic venue all season. Now, knowing how loyal “The Cult of Rezz” is, Rezz Rocks will certainly be a flagship event for her fans for years to come. 

Those who attended Rezz Rocks this year were faced with brutally cold weather, to the point where Rezz was forced to end her show at an earlier time than scheduled (although she did play a full set). Many of those fans must be thrilled to hear that she’ll be coming back for another round. This time, hopefully with better weather.

If Rezz Rocks 2019 sells out at the same rate this year’s did, we wouldn’t be surprised if they handed her a two night event! But we’ll just have to wait and see on that. 

Check out her full performance from this year below. Enjoy!

Watch Illenium Drop Heavy, Unreleased Remix Of Halsey’s “Without Me”

Illenium always seems to have something up his sleeve. Having just started teasing a new VIP version of his Flume “Say It” remix, it seems the Denver-based artist now has a heavy new flip of Halsey’s “Without Me” in the works.

Considering Halsey’s latest track came out just over a month ago, and with Illenium having just dropped a new single with Call Me Karizma and set to start his Awake 2.0 Tour this month, the turnaround on this latest offering is incredible. Via what we’ve heard from this fan recorded video (shout out reddit user andz54332 for the capture), although Illenium’s kept the LA-based singer’s vocals intact, the entirety of the songs production has been stripped down and replaced with slow, pulsing synths, warbling guitar and booming drums. As he states that EDC Orlando is the first time he’s played this remix out, it may be some time before a full version sees the light of day, but for now check out the video below below and enjoy

Kanye West & Kid Cudi’s Official Debut Performance As Kids See Ghosts Was Legendary

Last night history was made. Kanye West and Kid Cudi had their official debut live performance as Kids See Ghosts at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival in LA and it was everything I could’ve hoped for. 

When Kanye returned to Twitter earlier this year to reveal he had multiple new albums on the way including a new collab project with Kid Cudi, many fans couldn’t contain their excitement. The fact the project even existed was epic news on it’s own its own and the music held up to the high expectations, being one of the best projects Kanye released all year.

When the official debut KSG performance was first announced for the festival I decided I had to go check it out. However, leading up to Camp Flog Gnaw, there were various events that happened making it seem as if the highly anticipated headliner set from Kids See Ghosts might not actually happen.

Kanye was caught up in political controversy and then said he was going to Africa to record an album he planned to release a couple weeks after this KSG debut show. This caused me to believe there was a chance he might not make it. Then, just days before the show, they were filming Kanye’s music video with Tekashi 6ix9ine when there were gunshots fired causing Kanye to flee the scene. This happened while Kanye, Kim and his family were on mandatory evacuation from the Los Angeles wildfire that Kim reported to have reached their property and was in danger of destroying their home. It was one thing after the other and at this point I was worried if Kanye would be able to make it for his performance or if something would interfere.

I was not confident a Kids See Ghosts show was a sure thing at the festival. However, Kanye then posted a picture of the the stage setup for the festival to reassure it was still happening. The entire weekend there were fans waiting in some of the longest lines I’ve ever seen for hours to get Kids See Ghosts merchandise as it seemed everyone there, including myself, was waiting for the same thing.

Brockhampton played the other stage right before KSG but their set was cut short due to the crowd being too intense pushing forward and starting to crush people up front. Someone from the festival had to repeatedly ask people to move back to relieve pressure on the crowd and they were not able to let Brockhampton continue due to the safety concerns.

The entire Brockhampton crowd proceeded to migrated to the main stage for Kanye and Cudi’s incredibly anticipated new joint live show with the hype at an all time high. Then the same thing happened. Someone got on the microphone asking the crowd to all take 10 steps back and calm down if the show were to continue. They repeated the request for a while as I waited unsure if Kids See Ghost was going to be able to happen. At this point I was worried they were going to call the show off.

After a while, a horizontal clear box came out of nowhere and was hanging in the middle of the stage with Cudi and Kanye inside as they seemingly just appeared to start their set. Kanye has been known to boast some insane stage setups in the past like his massive production alongside Jay Z on their Watch The Throne tour as well as his floating, moving stage on the Saint Pablo tour. This time around the two were suspended in the air in what looked like a clear shipping container with their silhouettes highlighted in front of the massive LED screen showing the Kids See Ghost album artwork. 

They kicked off the set with Kanye’s “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” before moving into a spree of of Kids See Ghosts songs including “Fee the Love,” “Fire,” “4th Dimension,” “Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2”, “Reborn,” “Kids See Ghosts” and “Cudi Montage.” From there they moved into older songs like Kanye’s “Welcome to Heartbeak” & “Paranoid” off 808s & Heartbreaks as well as Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” before closing the set with their “Ghost Town” collab. Both artists sounded incredible with the two effortlessly playing off each other even harmonizing at times during the performance, showing an undeniable chemistry. The crowd was one of the most hyped I’ve ever seen and so was Kanye, dancing and jumping wildly around the floating container. 

There was surprisingly no Kanye rant with them getting straight to the music and squeezing the most out of their set time for a performance that couldn’t have gone any better. After being skeptical they would actually be able to perform, I was able to see the legendary performance firsthand and was mind blown at how great it was.

Kids See Ghosts live was as was epic as I could have imagined as I’m hoping these two are able to do more KSG sets down the road. Check out some fan videos and clips of the stream below. Enjoy!

Watch REZZ Drop Gritty Unreleased Remix Of Porter Robinson’s “Divinity”

A few days ago when REZZ announced she was remixing a track off of Porter Robinson’s Worlds we were absolutely pumped. Although we thought we would have to wait for a bit to hear the track, today we’ve received a first listen to “Divinity” (REZZ Remix).

Having confirmed that she was remixing track one off Worlds only days ago, we have a dedicated Montreal-based fan to thank for this latest capture of REZZ dropping the new remix for the first time. Having kept the lead melody and Amy Millan’s whispy vocals intact, REZZ has effectively flipped “Divinity” on it’s head, adding in her own dark, gritty sound design to this experimental/future bas hybrid. Check out the remix below and enjoy!

Hotel Garuda Shares Lush New House Groove “One Reason” (feat. Imad Royal & Kiah Victoria)

It’s been a bit since we’ve heard from Hotel Garuda. After announcing that the longtime friends would be splitting up just prior to their performance at Electric Forest, Candle Weather (Aseem Mangaokar) turned from half to whole and took on HG’s future by himself. And today Aseem has teamed up with Imad Royal & Kiah Victoria to share his first single as HG – “One Reason

“It’s about the feeling of wanting to stay together no matter what, and wanting to find a way to work it out regardless of your obstacles.” – Hotel Garuda

Having just come off an incredible collab with RUNN and a refreshing remix of Louis The Child’s “Better Not”, this latest offering is sounding extra-groovy. Driven by a thumping 4/4 kick “One Reason” combines HG’s upbeat house sound we’ve come to know and love with slow, melancholic vocals from New York-based singer Kiah Victoria and DC-based artist Imad Royal (which seems to be a dream collab for Aseem). We can’t wait to see what the future will be like for Hotel Garuda going forward. Check out “One Reason” below and enjoy!
