Preview Killbot’s Upcoming Single “Wrecked” On Dubstep.net

630 950 Tim Gauthier

The electronic dance music collective featuring JDevil [aka Jonathan Davis of Korn], Sluggo and Tyler Blue stands ready to terminate everything in its path. Fusing together dubstep anarchy, heavy metal precision and JDevil‘s immortal voice, the trio engages a new phase for destructive electronic music.  The track “Wrecked” made its debut today via Dubstep.net at:

That monster came to life with the hip-hop infused assault of “Wrecked” and the violent, visceral sex crunch of “I’ll F**k It” as the first two songs they laid down for SOUND SURGERY. On the latter, a guttural guitar riff by JDevil builds alongside the synth swells before exploding into a classic freakout scream from the frontman.   Wrote Christopher Weingarten of SPIN.com (9/24), “If you dug Korn’s Path of Totality and its no-bullshit mix of piston-popping wubbery and mosh-ready riffs, then this should be your jam of jams. Its corrosive, buzzsaw effects bring dubstep’s already enveloping textures into new levels of extremity—the Tasmanian Devil scatting from Korn klassic ‘Twist,’ sputtering textures that make Flux Pavilion sound like Belle & Sebastian, and noises that sound like sticking your head in a Tesla coil. Shut the fuck up, get up, and hear it now!”

Another favorite on SOUND SURGERY is “Feel Alive” which walks a fine line between industrial goth elegance and modern EDM mayhem. JDevil‘s croon evokes the ’80s bliss of some of his oldest influences, while paving the way for a new sound altogether.  Then there is the title track, an instrumental that opens the EP, embracing the trio’s passion for synth and hardcore bass.

KILLBOT was formed in January 2012 when JDevil had stumbled upon Sluggo‘s “The Dark Crystal” track and, as a diehard fan of the film, veritably freaked. The legendary singer began corresponding with the Phoenix-based “metalstep” pioneer and invited him out to his Southern California home to cut some tracks.  Meanwhile, Sluggo had just met the California-based rising producer Tyler Blue online (who specializes in dance-heavy bass music), and the two hit the road together for what would be an impromptu jam in JDevil‘s lair. It was more like a band coming together and less like lonely DJs emailing each other ProTools files.

“We got in my studio and just fucking went for it,” recalls JDevil. “It was one of the most natural things I’ve ever done. I can’t really describe it. After 12 hours, we had two songs, and I knew that KILLBOT could be like the Swedish House Mafia of bass music—just way more evil.”

“You can tell right off the bat this is something no one has done before,” adds Sluggo. “The three of us bring a lot to the table. We’re a good team, and we made something completely original between my ‘metalstep,’ Tyler‘s club groove and JDevil‘s darkness. It’s a monster.”

The track listing for SOUND SURGERY is:

  • Sound Surgery
  • Feel Alive
  • Wrecked
  • I’ll F**k It

#FreeFriday Episode No. 011: That Work – Soul On Fire (Yung Skeeter Remix)

1500 1200 Tim Gauthier

To all our avid Twitter followers, and frequents of the #FF shoutouts, we have adorned a whole new meaning towards this overused Friday chant-off… Presenting #FreeFriday.

[one_half]

You may remember Yung Skeeter from his previous incarnation as DJ Skeet Skeet, the Dim Mak signee and seminal EDM champion who’s been enlisted by outlets like Spotify to be their resident selector or mags like Paper and Blackbook who’ve handed him DJ of the year titles. You may also remember That Work as the mellifluous NY dance team responsible for this killer nu-disco track. But if you do not, after listening to this kaleidoscope floor turn of “Soul On Fire,” the inky house stain of this redux will be permanently embedded into your brain. Here’s hoping these two do a lot more together.

Proxy’s ‘Music From The Eastblock Jungles’ & North American Tour

414 414 Tim Gauthier

Russian producer PROXY makes his long-awaited return with the release of his debut album MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART 1, out November 6 via Dim Mak Records. A shocking display of hardcore sonic violence, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART 1 is the first installment of a two-part series from the world-renowned artist, with the second chapter scheduled for release in early 2013.

Beloved by top DJs and stadium crowds the world over, PROXY has created a work that harnesses the spirit of pure rave culture, with over 20 combined tracks that span and elevate countless genres—notably inflected by classic bass and drum ‘n’ bass culture—without regard for trends or ephemeral influences. Released in two parts, the MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES series showcases the prolific underground rave-czar‘s wide-spanning body of work.

MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART 1 opens the audio siege with flag-bearing marches (“Raja Ganja”), imperial air-raid bangers (“Raw”) and unhinged breakbeat madness (“Junk”). MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART 1 is the product of an artist who forged a sound in complete isolation, with visa problems leading him to entrench himself in the remoteness of his native Russia, continuing in the U.K. rave tradition of his Essex-spawned idols, The Prodigy. Years in the making, the album features a massive stockpile of new material, as well as PROXY classics both renowned (“Raven”) and unreleased (“Abyss”).

Prior to the release of MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART 1, Dim Mak will unleash album track “Shut Up!”. Out October 16, “Shut Up!” is packed with a brutal hip-hop vocal decrying mainstream pop laid out over the bluntest of beats, armed with weapons-grade bass and PROXY’s trademark, dread-inspiring atmospherics. The track is accompanied with remixes from Dim Mak label mates GTRONIC and VCO. Belgian titan GTRONIC lends his heavy bass trash sound for a grinding rendition of “Shut Up!” crammed with low-end intensity. Los Angeles-based duo VCO rework “Shut Up!” into a techno-house frenzy. Closing out the release, rising Canadian star John Roman uncovers the pitch-black soul of “Shut Up!” and lets it unfold over six minutes of malevolent techno, while Belgian house duo Sound of Stereo unleash an equally dark and fully loaded house remake. Check out audio snippets of “Shut Up!” and all the remixes here:

In support of MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART 1, PROXY has confirmed a North American tour, taking him across major venues from New York’s Terminal 5 to the legendary Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
