MegaDrive – 198XAD (2014)

Mega Drive - 198XAD MegaDrive lead us back to the electronic music of the 80’s with nowadays sound make-up. If you’re too lazy to dig up classics like Klaus Schulze (and Tangerine Dream), Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and so on, MegaDrive will introduce you to their fabulous world. It’s called retro revival and it’s definitively a pleasant and an alternative option. And well, if you’re old or wise enough to listen all those wonderful and creative artists of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s already, MegaDrive it’s still a quite nice option to fill up your ears and feed your brain with damaged sound waves.
Also recommended for fans of Power Glove, LazerHawk, Pertubator, Mitch Murder, etc.

4star – Nothing Changed (2014)

4star - Nothing Changed (2014)

4star - Nothing Changed (2014) It’s no secret, I’m a huge fan of the guys from 4star. That perfect mixture of Eminem style hip hop rapping of Adam and that dense and contorted, drum’n’bass and dubstep flavored instrumentals of Peter with a taste of Subsource/Black Futures and roots back to Reznor and NIN, simply nailed me. While 99.9% of the current mainstream electronic/EDM scene it’s nothing but a (bad) joke and the underground it’s not allowed to surface, these guys fined a pretty cool breach of their own, they are dumb enough to play their own music and not to follow the trends.
While their debut album – Daylight (2011) – was taking to laugh most of the issues which bothered Adam, this time his approach it’s considerably darker and the whole set-up it’s more experimental, psychedelic here and there and… darker. Although I hate to use the “dark” label because I consider it inconsistent. But this second installment of 4star it’s less edgy and more gloomy then the debut album. Adam’s not joking anymore and he’s lyrics this time are more serious and tense. This album it’s not dark, but honest.
If there would be really free and alternative media, 4star would become stars. But there isn’t. And it’s a shame! This whole word is and honestly we can do anything about it. But as these guys have enjoyed tracking these songs, I have the luxury to enjoy their release. I feel lucky and so can you. Buy their stuff and help independent artists to stay on the scene. Or don’t and enjoy the 374th posthumous Michael Jackson album and the next 50 Cent release which it’s pretty much the same s*it with the previous and the following one, only the song titles are changed. Eventually.
Even if we might feel like it’s getting worst, they say: nothing changed. This is bad? This is good? Let’s hear it!! Read more 4star – Nothing Changed (2014)

Therese – Remedy (DANK Remix)

Therese - Remedy (DANK Remix)

Therese - Remedy (DANK Remix) Therese is considered some kind of Swedish wonder-woman and the “queen of 21st century house music”. In only a few short years, she has crafted an international reputation for herself on the music scene – her signature tune ‘Put ‘em High’ is universally regarded as a 21st century dance classic, and continues to generate massive airplay to this day. ‘Put ‘em High’ reached No. 6 on the UK Top 40, and was followed by ‘Take Me Away’, another top ten dance/pop hit. In the USA, ‘Time’ scored an impressive No.21 placing on the Billboard Dance chart. Other records like ‘Neon Lights’ have become instant club classics, while ‘Feelin’ Me’ saw UK urban station Kiss FM proclaim her the ‘The Queen of Electro’.

Michael Jackson – Leave Me Alone (Sporty-O & Kisskaya Trapped Out Bootleg)

Michael Jackson Leave Me Alone - Sporty-O & Kisskaya Trapped Out Bootleg

Michael Jackson Leave Me Alone - Sporty-O & Kisskaya Trapped Out Bootleg How many skins they will keep ripping off of MJ? Pretty sordid and kind of necrophiliac. Epic Records on 9th May will release the second posthumous compilation album of previously unreleased tracks entitled “Xscape” and MJ now it’s kind of back in the spotlight. So, Sporty-O & Kisskaya considered it’s a brilliant idea to desecrate a classic MJ track, the 1987’s single “Leave Me Alone”. It would be much better and decent to leave the dead king of the pop alone and do not dishonor his memory. And don’t get me wrong, I do not like MJ, I never did and except a very few songs, I didn’t enjoy his music, although I admit he was a great entertainer and showman.
Sporty-O it’s the perfect case of someone with absolute no talent, but good connections and influence. Read more Michael Jackson – Leave Me Alone (Sporty-O & Kisskaya Trapped Out Bootleg)

Combichrist – We Love You (2014)

Combichrist - We Love You (2014)

Combichrist - We Love You (2014) While the post-dubstep mainstream EDM scene is populated exclusively by plastic dolls, posers and annoyingly boring “copies of imitations”, it’s quite refreshing to listen to something powerful, modern, but still attached to the classic values and to the classic sense of the values such as “We Love You”, the 7th and probably the deadliest album by Andy LaPlegua, the one man army and the master mind behind the Combichrist machinery. Although the Ministry parallels are still there, Combichrist it’s definitively one of the best and most intense EDM bands from the scene and their Aggrotech aggression it’s always meaningful and genuine each time.
Without reinventing the EDM, without doing anything revolutionary, they managed to sound fresh and refreshing, modern without becoming predictable and boring as most of the other bands and artists from the EDM scene are sounding. There is life and music after drops and wobbling s*its after all! Read more Combichrist – We Love You (2014)

Skrillex – Recess (2014)

Skrillex – Recess (2014)

Skrillex – Recess (2014) While we all know Skrillex, envy Skrillex, love Skrillex, hate Skrillex or get bored of Skrillex, it’s kind of unexpected and surprising that “Recess” actually it’s his debut album as solo artist. Never would figure that. Well, true, I’m not a fan of the trend settler and trend butcherer producer. Now I honestly do not understand what’s the use, the purpose of releasing a dubstep/EDM album thesedays. We’re living the age of singles, nobody’s buying dance albums anymore and most of the people are buying tracks, mp3s to listen them from their phones while they are traveling on the bus or the subway and the music is meant to be to cut off the outside and any sort of man to man communication, and cover the white noise of the surroundings. If you’re not playing jazz, eventually rock of some sort of avant-garde/experimental whatever, an album seems pretty pointless – in these circumstances. And mainly while for the last six years you were conscious of that and released that sort of stuffs.
Skrillex have or want something to prove? I don’t think so. His fans and followers love him for those drops and wobblings, his haters and contestants for the same drops and wobblings. The marketing, the package of the album was pretty cool although. Read more Skrillex – Recess (2014)

Belzebass - Welcome To Hell

Belzebass - Welcome To Hell Belzebass? Beelzebub or Beel-Zebub is a Semitic deity and literally it mean “Lord of the Flies”.
The source for the name Beelzebub is in 2 Kings 1:2-3, 6, 16. “Now Ahaziah had fallen through the lattice of his upper room in Samaria and injured himself. So he sent messengers, saying to them, “Go and consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, to see if I will recover from this injury. But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Go up and meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going off to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?’
Ba‘al Zəbûb is variously understood to mean “lord of the flies” or “lord of the (heavenly) dwelling”. Originally the name of a Philistine god, Ba’al, meaning “Lord” in Ugaritic, was used in conjunction Read more Belzebass – Welcome To Hell (Official Video)

Cairoglyphs – The Veil, EP (2014)

Cairoglyphs The Veil EP 2014

Cairoglyphs The Veil EP 2014 Hip hop it’s not actually my cup of tea, but once in a while I’m listening some hip hop as well, have a few favorites and I can appreciate the quality in any genre and style. Cairoglyphs have a cool Oriental/middle East flavor, but the Kansas City based hip-hop artist/producer Ryan Forest merged quite different sounds and styles from dense electronic layers to rap, and from dark, deep house constructions to pounding hip hop beats. Kind of past meets the future, highly danceable, very fluorescent type of music. Dark dance music with content. While IDM and EDM are simply dead labels drained by any meaning and content lately, Ryan Forest proves that the dance music might still have future.
“The Veil”, Ryan Forest debut EP has just been released on Russian Winter Records and by the kindness of the record label we got one, exclusive free track for download, a pretty cool teaser to make you buy the EP. Read more Cairoglyphs – The Veil, EP (2014)
