DJ Hanzel x Drezo Collab “Anxiety” Auctions for $11,400

Anxiety

Yesterday, the DJ Hanzel x Drezo collab “Anxiety”, which was exclusively pressed on a single vinyl, finished the bidding portion of this tracks’ campaign.

The description by DJ Hanzel for the auction goes likes this:

“The record which is pressed exclusively on 1 vinyl is officially available for auction on eBay. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Vh1’s Save The Music Foundation because no one is making deep enough music these days so hopefully the proceeds from this record will inspire at least one child to finally go as deep as DJ Hanzel.”

With the proceeds of the auction going towards VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, all $11,400 of it, the non-profit which has stayed vigilant in restoring music programs in public schools in America, seems like the perfect choice for this donation. As the track hasn’t had any official airplay and Dillon Francis being the only individual to have played the tune out, no wonder the price tag was absurdly high.

SIDIZEN KING – Don’t Let Me Down (The Chainsmokers Cover)

(The Chainsmokers Cover)

Los Angeles hip-hop futurist SIDIZEN KING made waves with his breakout cover of Dillon Francis and Kygo’s “Coming Over” where he let his crisp verses run atop the dance original. Back with another innovative cover, he takes on The Chainsmokers‘ radio favorite “Don’t Let Me Down” with the help of production guru, casualkimono.

Casualkimono sets an initial hip-hop-based drum arrangement with warped synths while SIDIZEN KING runs his lines atop without skipping a beat. When it comes to the drop, a pitch-dropped version of Daya’s memorable hook comes into play along with shimmering synths and whipping drums. With another fluid fusion of dance and hip-hop, this newcomer may be onto something with his refreshing covers.

Low Cut – Verdant EP

Verdant EP

Low Cut – Verdant EP

Relative newcomers Low Cut, from Denver, Colorado have slowly been carving a name out for themselves in the mile high city. Having their first unofficial release back in October of 2014 with the Goldroom remix competition involving his tune “Till Sunrise”, the duo have honed their production skills with the positive results shining through.

Their debut on Dallas’ own Audiophile Deep, which features releases from the likes of MANIK, Gene Farris, Dangur, Hotspot & Komaroff and more, with that not including the list from their Live and XXL sublabels, couldn’t come at a better time. The Verdant EP comes off the heels of the duo’s recently entry into the ownership side of the music business; opening up their own imprint THNK TNK Records.

A two track EP with starkly different productions for the A and the B-side, expresses the variety and dexterity of their production prowess. The title track “Verdant” is a tech house smasher, up beat, complete with a few funky transitions and additives to keep the song sounding fresh from start to finish. The B-side “Azure” takes a more sandy approach with the playa tech vibes pushing through with strong support before giving way to an elegant piano driven breakdown. With this release already being supported by Sirus Hood, be on the lookout for more from these two as their budding emergence into the house and techno scene has just begun.

Is PACHA Preparing To Enter Brooklyn?

#jobs come see my pretty face

A photo posted by Andrew Inomata (@andrewinomata) on

After PACHA NYC‘s owner won the bid on the now-padlocked Verboten nightclub, the rumors began to fly about the arrival of the Ibiza-Megabrand to Kings County (Brooklyn, for everyone who doesn’t live in the 5 boroughs). Now, with his partner Andrew Inomata’s recent posting on Instagram, everyone who has been praying for the arrival of the Main Room Cherries may have gotten their wish.

A bartender and warm up DJ from the previous iteration of Pacha, who wished to remain nameless, confirmed that this was sent out with the urgings to apply/re-apply as a previous Pacha staff member. That sounds like a pretty clear indication whatever is going to show up across the East River in Brooklyn isn’t going to be a bowling alley (Sorry Brooklyn Bowl). Will it be an identical remake? Probably not, given Brooklyn’s aggressive dislike for hardcore EDM, but we may see some type of evolution of the Pacha brand, attempting to satisfy both the Big Room and Underground sensibilities of the location.

There’s already been some noise in the scene complaining that Williamsburg will be inundated with the retail crowd that PACHA NYC drew. However, this is only one opinion in the city, with many others cheering the arrival of a replacement after the last couple of months with Verboten remaining pad-locked and empty. You might even see me at one of the open calls. This is going to be huge folks. Once we know what’s going on, you’ll be the first to hear it.

RL Grime & What So Not Finish Their ‘Tell Me’ Follow-Up

rl grime

What So Not just posted a picture with RL Grime on various social media channels alerting fans about the status of their newest collaboration. “Trying to look as hard as this tune we just finished,” wrote Emoh in the caption–essentially relaying that he and RL have completed their long awaited, but as of yet untitled, follow-up to ‘Tell Me‘, which was released back in 2014.

Earlier this summer, Emoh mentioned in an interview with Pilerats that he had joked around with RL a few days earlier over whether to make a sequel to ‘Tell Me’:

He actually sent me a text, funnily enough, two days ago like “we should finish that other track, Tell Me 2”; like we always say “let’s make Tell Me 2” like that’s our running joke. We really love working together, like we gel well together in the studio and we’ve just never finished another song…

Of course, this collaboration will probably have a slightly different sound than last time, since Flume exited the duo last year. It also comes on the heels of What So Not’s release of his latest EP, Divide & Conquer. As of now, there is no title or release date revealed. But knowing these guys, it will probably drop sooner than we think.

Justice Announces New Single “Randy” + ‘Woman’ Album Details

Randy

Justice’s long awaited return was received with a warm and invigorating welcome earlier this summer as their production hiatus had come to an end with “Safe and Sound”; their comeback single. Keeping the ball rolling, the announcement of Woman, the title of their third album, set for release in November, is bound to bring an even bigger reaction. That’s not all. A new single has been attached to this very ecstatic hump day news. “Randy”, an upbeat piece with a static, yet addictive four on the floor drum kit, heady arpeggiated chord progressions plus a splash of the Shins mixed in for good measure. Guys, this is all happening very fast, with November being relatively around the corner. We’re waiting with baited breath for them to hopefully squeeze another release out before the album drops in a few months. Until then, there are two fresh singles to get after.

Steve James Sits Down With Grammy Pro to Chat About Bieber, Garrix, and More

Steve JamesSteve James is right up there Porter Robinson, Madeon, Garrix, and any other prodigal producer that’s found success by or before the age of 18. It’s pretty special being in that club of under-21 successes, and very reassuring, given what they’ve all gone on to do. Even more impressive, is while we are all worried about exams, he’s working in the studio on Justin Bieber music, collaborating with Martin Garrix, and now apparently doing work with LIGHTS, and Matthew Koma.

During EDC Week, Steve had a moment to sit down with Grammy Pro to chat about his debut Vegas performance at Wet Republic (as an opener for his colleague Mr. Garrix), his now well-known origin story, the Bieber story, and more. The most promising portions of his time with Grammy Pro is the mentions of his time in the studio with other producers, singers, and songwriters. The first half of 2016 sounds like it was spent toiling away writing and producing music, which could turn into a number of amazing releases down the road later this year. I mean…a Koma x Steve James track, would be insane! He also talks about his connection to Garrix, which started simply online, and how its resulted in them collaborating on something we’ll heat (soon??). Time will tell!


Additionally, Steve James is set to take off on his first ever bus tour with Matoma, continuing his Senioritis Tour at Coda in Philly TONIGHT. Tickets and info HERE.

Fox Stevenson – Rocket

Fox Stevenson – Rocket

Fox Stevenson has become a household name in the bass music community having played Tomorrowland this year and with a banging catalog on Spinnin’ Records, Firepower Records, Disciple Records, and his very own imprint Cloudhead Records, he’s headed for more musical stardom.

The UK based singer, songwriter and producer is back yet again with a new dubstep release titled “Rocket.” The tune kicks off with a heavy rock influence on the production before launching a onslaught of heavy synths and powerful bass while still remaining melodic and overly aggressive, a signature Fox move. Make sure to add this to your daily rotation, bassheads.

Singapore Nightclub Addresses Fake Marshmello Incident

I was wondering when someone might try to impersonate Marshmello. After all, the guy is always in a costume, so why couldn’t anyone else just what it?

Looks like we have this exact kind of situation on our hand in Singapore. Ultra Music Festival Singapore just took place and as you would expect, there were after parties.  Zouk Singapore, a nightclub that was once voted the 6th best is the world, had reportedly booked Marshmello to play. Someone in a similar costume showed up, but unfortunately for those in attendance, this person was not the real deal. In a tweet, the leader of Mellogang confirmed it was not him, leaving us to wonder who it really was. Zouk has since apologized for the mix up, even though the venue seems to be denying that it booked an imposter. Check out all the action below.

Super wack that you guys hired an imposter to perform as marshmello @zouksingapore respect @djjaderasif pic.twitter.com/gXPa0Bx6AL
