Halfway through 2017 and it’s been nothing short of a fantastic for dance music. The greatness however lies not with the names that occupy billboards or Vegas LED walls, but rather side stages and underground events that always fly under the radar. Gorillaz long awaited Humanz was a dud, Deadmau5‘s lazy compilation of backcatalogued tunes

At long last, summer has graced New York City with it’s presence. Rooftops are opening, DIY venues are worming their way into alley’s, and the best part of all, an incredible amount of boat parties are lined up to get clubbers out and about in the subl…
One of my favorite things about bass music legends, Slander, is that they know how to change up their releases. Once you’ve had your helping of party hardy dubstep filth, they hit you with blissful and emotional heaven trap, with the occasional curve-ball thrown as well. The duo’s latest effort with up and coming
Black Daniels has been making waves in the European drum and bass scene for a while. With the help of his producer, Shield, he has established himself in the underground. His reputation has been built with jungle inspired beats, and smooth flowing vocals to compliment them. The MC from Copenhagen, Denmark also doubles as a
Heavy is the word that immediately comes to mind when putting on the Shade’s new EP, Night The Dreadless Angel. This new and experimental project comes from bass maestros Alix Perez and Eprom, released on Alix’s own 1985 Music label. Shades combines elements of jungle, glitch hop, and breakbeats to create dark, filthy sounds that are as futuristic
Nor and So cal are brought together with LA bass music duo Father Bear dropping their first release on San Francisco based alt electronica power imprint MalLabel Music. Honey Drippin’ serves up 5 big bass slammers ranging from heavy glitch hop to crunk style trap. The EP is a bit on a mainstreamy side compared
Fresh off their last incredible party at House of Yes, underground promoter and mainstay Fiction is bringing a wonderfully unique auditory and visual experience to Brooklyn. Dutch based deep and melodic house label, Something Happening Somewhere also affectionately known as ‘SoHaSo’ is touching down to grace a secret warehouse location on March 11th, this Saturday
The first two months of 2017 are behind us and despite the loads of social and political discourse sweeping the planet, there are plenty of reasons to stay optimistic. With a possible Daft Punk tour in the works and upcoming albums from Gorillaz, Madeo…
Lee Walker is quickly taking the underground house scene by storm. With the release of his break-out single “Freak Like Me”, the UK based solo artists started his journey to popularity through a very refined indie house vibe. His latest release “2am at Medicine Bar” via Circus Records has carries his listeners on tech house

Easily one of my favorite artists I’ve had the pleasure of covering the past couple years has been Seattle born, LA resident, chilltronica producer, Andrew Coulter, or better known as Soul Catalyst. From his early singles leading up to his self titled debut album (released for free last year), Soul Catalyst hasn’t just created a host of fantastic

Dark, although not deep, tribal yet still very mechanical, not bad at all for the once trance turned techno producer Michael Conway. A longtime member of scene, starting out as your typical LA vinyl crate digger, Conway eventually starting spinning and throwing his own parties in the bay area, making a name for himself with his
LA electronic duo Mont Blvck may be new on the scene but are actually the result of many years of creativity and inspiration from two very bright musicians. Diego Cuevas, son of Grammy award winning latin rockstar Beto Cuevas, and Jackson Englund, brother of renown vocalist Anabel Englund, have created one of the freshest sounds in the
With the 2016 Presidential election literally around the corner (God help us) it seems that anywhere you go all you see is ‘Crooked Hillary’ or how misogynistic the Trump is. Exhibit A, you’re on an Electronic Music blog reading about it right now, but please bare with me because I promise we’re still talking music here.
House music is infallible. This is especially true in Los Angeles, which has been the western hemisphere’s mecca for the sound since the late 80s. Paying homage to the scene, now multiple generations deep, Matt Ossentjuk and Diego Cuevas have no intentions of staying anything other than real. As you’d expect to happen when two

In the past few years, northern California’s Lake Tahoe has become one of the premier destination for dance music festivals, particularly with bass music. This weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Bass Camp will celebrate it’s 4th year. Undeniably their biggest yet, Bass Camp is featuring 2 days of A-list artists including Nero, Krewella, and Arty. The lineup also includes special sets like Justin Jay & friends and the filthiest dubstep duo since Cookie Monsta & Funtcase with Figure b2b Protohype. No doubt will each of these massive names deliver stellar performances, but there’s a bevy of other talent
Berlin’s legendary HYTE Festival is making it’s way to Brooklyn this Independence Day weekend for a 2 day techno takeover. The festival is making it’s 3rd year return to the city with day and night parties Saturday and Sunday. The day parties kick-off at 4pm and go underground after the sun goes down in a secret location in Brooklyn that has finally been announced as the Brooklyn Hangar. The hangar features indoor and outdoor stages and a bonus underground basement speakeasy style stage with art installations.

It’s always great to see up and comers making moves in the industry, and it’s even sweeter when they’re as down to earth and genuine as the 219 Boys. The bay area bass house scene has skyrocketed in recent years and childhood friends and DJs, Elric and Scott, find themselves right in the middle of it. The duo originally started to turn heads with their mashups and remixes of popular artists including G-Easy and Glass Animals. After winning Insomniac‘s Discovery Project, the boys found themselves in the eye of some of the today’s hottest house music artists and since have
Night Vision is not the typical track you’d expect from Johnny Yono. The LA based trance virtuoso has created a name based on massive beats that walk the line between bigroom and epic trance music and has celebrated numerous acclaimed releases on Armada, Perfecto, and Lange Recordings. Johnny explores new ground with Night Vision’s slower, more progressive tempo and it’s groovy retro beat that resembles the likes of electronica classics like New Order. Make no mistake though, the track remains trance, and contains the melody and ambiance to prove it. There’s definitely something special about this tune, not merely due to
I’ve hailed Soul Catalyst as one of the best treats you’ll find on Soundcloud for quite some time. His refreshing take on deep, tropical electronica has stuck out in what is normally a very one dimensional genre and he has delivered us songs that are full of psychedelic introspection, positivity, and extrasolar moodiness . The best examples of this include his hit singles “Scenic Route” or “Midnight”, which put a fading sunset backdrop to the catchy, thumping garage house beats, creating a perfect blend of dancy rhythm and equatorial atmosphere. It’s all lead to the release of Soul Catalyst’s self titled debut, but how does
Our love for music has gotten us to many different roads in our lifetime. With an EDM bubble practically bursting right before our eyes, it’s hard to see who truly has a passion for who they are and what they love. As much as we love to talk with artists and what they are up to, sometimes they get a little too much spotlight. What about the people who take the time to host them and bring them out to their respected cities? In the Bay Area, that’s where Sam comes in from Flatline Events. Bringing some of the heaviest
