[info_box_2 title=”ABOUT THE RELEASE”]

Run Hide Survive EP is the newest effort from Brighton outfit SOUTH CENTRAL, pushing the expectations of what electro can be. “Drop It” at first plays much like a big room progressive track, complete with lush chord progressions and a memorable build up. When it drops though–all bets are off. A laser frenzy greets you on “WTF U LOOKIN AT”, leading into a fat bass attack and a sweet melody overtop. The breakdown on this track leads into a deafeningly overbearing dub section sure to leave subwoofers crying. “Invasion” is undoubtedly electro, with elements that compliment the grimy theme of SOUTH CENTRAL. The extra added touch is the menacing vocals that fit snug like a glove alongside this angered track. These three will certainly be found in the next high octane set coming to a dance event near you.

The Back Off, Bitch! remix EP invites a diverse palate of producers to try their hand at the Static Revenger and Kay original. Dim Mak enlists the help of Melbourne Bounce favorite J-Trick to give this electro track a much needed Down Under attack. Next up are two remixes by Jealous Much?, taking cues from hip-hop and trap music while keeping the house intact as well. Alter Natives shows off the true trap end of the spectrum, slowing the electro house to a proper hip-hop speed. Last but not least is the jolliest of the package, Taco Cat’s remix dub. Keeping with the Melbourne Bounce theme, the “Back Off, Bitch!” lead has been made into the happiest sounding remix of 2013. The track may be titled “Back Off, Bitch!”– but this remix will clearly put smiles on faces.

[Rolling Stone Premiere] Borgore parties with Waka Flocka Flame and Paige on new ‘Wild Out’ single!

600 398 Tim Gauthier

100413-wild-out-600-1380907204Israeli DJ-producer Borgore has a knack for stitching together eclectic styles. As a former death-metal drummer, he brings a hard-hitting approach to his electronic tunes – but he’s still savvy enough to collaborate with artists of very different genres. On his new single, “Wild Out,” he brings both a pop singer, Paige, and a rapper, Waka Flocka Flame, into the fold.

“What the fuck you hatin’ for?” sings Paige over blaring electro-bass drops and Euro-house synths. “Give me a round of applause!” Check out an exclusive stream of the track on Rolling Stone.

Borgore had high praise for her, as well as for his guest rapper. “Working with Waka was like working with the energy of an MMA fight, while Paige brought a serene, silky, angel-like voice and I had to somehow mix them both together. Mission.”

“Wild Out” will be released on October 15th, on Dim Mak Records, and it’s available for pre-order on iTunes and Borgore’s official website. The Wild Out EP will be released later this fall.

Now firmly cemented as one of the staple tracks in the Dirtyphonics discography, “Hanging On Me” made headlines earlier in 2013 for its huge dubstep sound. Now a number of versatile artists have lent their hands to remix this dancefloor devastator into wholly different creations.

Borgore and Ookay teamed up for their remix of “Hanging On Me”, bringing together two different genres into one tight package. The first drop in this track leans on devastating hardstyle sounds with its snapping kicks. The second drop however will surely leave crowds surprised, as it breaks into a full trap workout. The Kastle remix goes into a polar opposite direction. Pulling off the fresh new remixed sound seamlessly, the Kastle remix is proper 2-step garage. This track fits perfectly into club sets, with its warm lead sounds and triplet sections, all whilst keeping Liela Moss’s vocals intact. Finally, the Slogun & iOh remix turns “Hanging On Me” into the drum & bass we know and love. A sizable reworking of the original track’s synths turns this remix into a break-beaten killer track for the D&B massive.

SAVAGE SKULLS & DOUSTER released the Bass Kick EP in early 2013, a mixture of 808’s, garage and even Dutch influences across its tracks. The time has come for a number of producers to try their hands at these songs, with DON RIMINI, ASTRONOMAR, DONOVANS and SWICK at their respective helms for the Bass Kick Remix EP. DON RIMINI‘s take on “Bass Kick” is club-friendly house, filled with percussive and bass elements that’ll keep the crowd moving. The hip-hop touch for “Bass Kick” is provided by ASTRONOMAR, fusing breakbeats with the electronic elements we know and love. “TRT” is a garage highlight for 2013, and the DONOVANS remix goes one step further, taking the vocal one shots and piano leads of the original “TRT” and adding in a distinctly hard and distorted kick to amplify the drop portions. The SWICK remix of “TRT” turns up the dub end of things, opting towards a phat lead and tight hi-hats galore. Whether it be house, hip-hop, or garage, the Bass Kick Remix EP has something for everyone.

Kevin Focus shows us that, when it comes to electronic music, less isn’t always more. In fact “Less is Snore”. The long awaited follow up to Focus’s number one selling EP Stuck 7/Brock Out takes his progressive, big room sound and fuses it with his past underground roots. “Less is Snore” embodies Kevin Focus’s musical paradigm. An audio synthesis of genres and styles, “Less is Snore” is the end result of six months in studio and a three-year relationship between Focus and Dim Mak label head Steve Aoki. Equipped with “Less is Snore”, the last several months have seen Aoki secretly debut the track in clubs and festivals around the world, to great acclaim.

2013 has been a huge year for English alternative band, “Scanners.” This June marked the release of their long awaited third album, “Love is Symmetry” on Dim Mak Records. To follow up, 5 songs on the album have been chosen for 8 remixers to give their interpretation on Scanners. First off the Ep is Fei-Fei’s remix of the title track. She takes the song’s energy up a few notches with her invigorating, bass-heavy style. Next, Carpenter Brut’s electro spin does something similar on “Control” by including a heavy rock influence. T.W.I.N.S then takes “Mexico” and adds an indie dance vibe, resulting in a fun, playful beat. Then, “State of Wonder” gets a “hard bass” remix by Zeskulls. The intro keeps the good-feel vibes of the original tune, but then takes a quick turn as Zeskull’s signature wobbles takes the driving wheel. The 5th remix on the EP is another remix of “Control” by Boots N’ Pants. As you listen to this remix, let your mind and body get carried away with this relaxing, deep house groove. The energy picks up again with the second remix of “State of Wonder,” a pumping electro-house track tailored by Kevin Focus. Following next is a creative, beat-intensive, drum n’ bass remix by Aeronautica. Their expert sound design adds a unique touch to this remix of “Mexico.” Finally, the Remix Ep ends on a great note with Hiroshima Twinky’s take on “Control.,” a beautiful piece that is easy to fall in love with.

New Borgore and Ookay remix for Dirtyphonics’ ‘Hanging On Me’

When it comes to heavy bass, haunting lyrics belted out with soaring vocals, dirty beats, and overall badassery…who do you turn to? If you didn’t answer DIRTYPHONICS, then you are wrong and need to reevaluate your life/music situation. The only way to make a DIRTYPHONICS song even dirtier is to add the talents of the cake lovin’ Borgore and trap producer extraordinaire Ookay; the results of such a collaboration can be heard in the Hardstyle-inspired remix these two heavy hitters produced on the Dirtyphonics track “Hanging On Me”. Full of subtle drops and vibey bass, “Hanging on Me (Borgore & Ookay remix)” is sexy and fun, which is just what we’d expect from a fusion of all this talent in one place.
