Were someone to describe Keys N Krates as an artist who includes Diplo and Annie Mac as friends, one whose schedule includes appearances at festival stages like HARD, Mad Decent Block Party and Electric Zoo, and one who is signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, you might have and idea of who this artist is. But as a live electronic band, Toronto-based trio Keys N Krates, are anything but a typical EDM act.
In fact, as they show on their new EP, SOLOW, out this Tuesday, there’s still a lot of room for originality in a genre typically defined by similarities. Check out the first listen of SOLOW here, on CODE.
Coone’s new track ‘Our Fairytale’ is the second release of his forthcoming album ‘Global Dedication’ which will be released around October 2013 on Dim Mak records. Fasten your seat belts for this Hardstyle fairytale roller coaster and experience…
FELIX CARTAL is fresh off the success of his most recent EP, Past Present Felix, with the hit lead single “Young Love”. The follow-up single, “After Dark”, takes a more euphoric approach with enchanting melodies and hypnotizing female vocals.
Steve Aoki returns to the fore alongside fellow EDM megaliths Chris Lake and Tujamo with a rhythm styled just in time for the summit of the festival season. “Boneless” has become the next stalwart across dance floor. And…..
RNR 2.0 is Will Brennan‘s sexy summer follow up to his “RNR” single and, true to Will’s signature musical style, the song can’t be defined by just one genre. RNR 2.0 is infused with soothing acoustic melodies, the sensual voice of Jenny Reynolds, and a backdrop of trap beats…
Mercer, D!RTY AUD!O & Reece Low joined forces and created a melodic big room Dutch house anthem. The three men fused together each of their own unique styles and elements and created ‘Drop’. Though ‘Drop’ is festival-ready, it goes off just as well in the clubs.
Belgium based producer/electro pioneer GTRONIC is blazing new trails in the dense forest of dance music with the release of “STROBO”. This two-track release is hypnotizing and builds upon multiple layers of rowdy bass, treble, and stabs of synth that keep the tempo hyped.
Every artist knows that the highest form of a compliment is through imitation. From the outdoor coastal concept to the colorfully artistic effects, Big Sean’s latest music video for his single “10 2 10″ is exactly that.
Dim Mak’s own Clockwork released the music video for his single “Surge” back in June 2013 showcasing some unique and original effects against a back drop of the coastal wilderness. From the hike through the wooded trails to the shots of the waves and the clouds rolling in over the scene, it puts you at one with nature and the meaning of the lyrics “I can feel it in my body” shine through without question.
“10 2 10″ , released just about a week ago, boasts an oh so similar concept. Hike through the wooded trails? Check. Waves? Check. Clouds? Check. But wait, what about those super cool visual effects? Check. (Shout out @susboy911) It is super reminiscent of what we saw with Clockwork’s “Surge”… and that is awesome. As far as the lyrics and video creating cohesive concept, its not exactly on the money. With the song being about working from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and back again, when did he have time to stroll to the beach? I mean, since he was busy working and all.
So you be the judge. Who wore it best?
So you’re the popular DJ at all your friends’ house parties. You’ve played the clubs. Everyone you know thinks you’re the next A-Trak.
But do you have what it takes to open a stage at one of the largest festivals in the world?
