Rehearsal Sessions: Keys N Krates – Treat Me Right Pt. 1 and 2

600 338 Tim Gauthier

cuvm_KNKTreatMeRightCover_1-e1361326570656We all know Keys N Krates play by their own rules when creating their far from ordinary trap inspired beats. Well, we got to spend some rehearsal time with the trio to see just how they make the musical magic happen. The production of their latest single, “Treat Me Right” released on Dim Mak Records, started off as a jam session with Adam Tune on drums, David Matisse playing keys, and Jr. Flow mixing on the turntables. KNK likes to record their music like a traditional band, “jamming it out until something comes out” says Adam. Watch as they rehearse for their live performance of “Treat Me Right”.

Following the release of their REMIX ALBUM and razor-sharp performances at this year’s Ultra Music Fest and SXSW, AZARI & III is unleashing their final ‘Remix EP’ off their stellar “Azari & III” full length. The LOST IN TIME EP is out today, featuring the original version of “Lost In Time”, along with 2 celebrated remixes from Finnish house producer/DJ Jori Hulkkonen and Los Angeles techno/house duo VCO.

The original version is centered on lush house beats, and reels through rich percussion, all the while marrying with a gorgeous vox. Jori Hulkkonen delivers a different sonic depth; building with distorted, systemized thumps and gleaming synths.  Lastly, VCO gives the “Lost In Time” a solid workout, and the result is a pulsing throng of synths and splattered arpeggios.

Out Now: GTRONIC – Morpheus & Dufus

710 710 Tim Gauthier

[lightbox url=”http://itun.es/i6JQ2Ny” width=”100%” height=”100%” iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://btprt.dj/Ys9dOB” width=”100%” height=”100%” iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://spoti.fi/170fDdl” width=”100%” height=”100%” iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLP3NmVJWzd3Np7qagMpMeI8CVGgYZ7KYE” width=”960″ height=”540″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox]

Belgian titan GTRONIC drops his first EP of 2013, ‘MORPHEUS & DUFUS’ with 2 new originals, remixes from the likes of MOONBOOTICA, DIRTY DISCO YOUTH, THE SNEEKERS, OSTBLOCKSCHLAMPEN and RUSTY WARRIORS, and a free bonus track “Moticon”. It’s all about crunchy sounds and pulsating baselines.

The first track is homage to the god of dreams, “Morpheus”. This musical demon brings you into a whole new dimension; a perfect balance between uplifting melodies and raw baselines. “Dufus” is a more techno-influenced, bass heavy tune. Its huge pounding drum-kicks accompanied with dirty sub-bass make it irresistible to stand still. And, lastly “Moticon” is an experimental piece of art where emotions collide with rough baselines.
