Los Angeles based electronic music duo SLANDER teams up with dubstep prodigy KOMPANY for their new heart throbbing bass heavy anthem “Broken” featuring FKNSYD out today, Friday, August 16 via Never Say Die Records.

“Broken” is an electrifying and gut-punching record with a smooth melodic touch, bridging with powerful vocals along with massive energy throughout the anthem.

Listen now HERE.

About SLANDER:
SLANDER’s dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, Excision, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more. Amongst dozens of chart-topping remixes, their original Heaven Trap hit “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ has been listened to over 10 million times while being championed by Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint. Beyond building a remarkable name for themselves through jaw-dropping anthems and massive collaborations, SLANDER can also include “label heads” to their resume. The LA-based duo recently teamed up with their good friend NGHTMRE to turn their popular Gud Vibrations track into an official record label. Attesting their dynamic nature as artists, SLANDER’s productions range from cinematic and melodic to bone jarring and foot stomping, always with a common thread of sophisticated soundscapes and captivating energy which they will bring to some of the biggest festival brands in the U.S. this summer. While being in the midst of massive releases, SLANDER is gearing up for a tremendous end of the year with their co-headlining upcoming Alchemy Tour along with NGHTMRE, Seven Lions, and The Glitch Mob. The tour will be making various stops in cities such as Long Beach CA, San Diego CA, Portland OR, and more. Check out the full tour and grab tickets here.

About Kompany:
Kompany has emerged from the shadows of anonymity to present one of the more promising up and coming bass music acts. Having perfected his craft in the esteemed halls of IconCollective, Kompany is now bringing his music to a global audience. Blending versatile sound design with aggressive forms of bass music, Kompany is now a force to be reckoned with.

About FKNSYD:
Besides having a sparse amount of social media accounts, including a Twitter featuring a blurry profile photo, there isn’t much in terms of concrete information or even a noticeable bio to pluck some facts or anecdotes from. If there is one thing known about fknsyd aka Sydney, is that her brand of music is extremely interesting. The first thing that could be said about fknsyd is that her style sounds a lot like the original incarnation of Crystal Castles, down to the often obtuse and somewhat disturbing electronic compositions that seems to be the calling card of the Witch House genre. Even her wispy vocals eerily recall a younger Alice Glass. If Crystal Castles is her influence, fknsyd is a worthy torchbearer to the legacy of the legendary electro group.

mau5trap Artist i_o Touring with deadmau5, Appearing at Electric Zoo - 'House of God' EP Out Now by Brian Rapaport

NEW EP HOUSE OF GOD
OUT NOW ON mau5trap

IN DALLAS, LOS ANGELES,
AND MORE TBA
AND APPEAR AT ELECTRIC ZOO THIS COMING LABOR DAY WEEKEND IN NYC

Listen to House of God now: https://smarturl.it/ioHouseofGod

Everything can be hacked, as world renowned techno artist i_o has continuously proven. Combining dark heavy grooves and intense evolving melodies, i_o brings together dance music’s finest elements. With influence ranging from deadmau5 and UMEK to techno’s most underground, i_o is poised to take over the world’s main stages with driving sets that grasp and don’t let go.

His latest, a dark and suspenseful four-track EP titled House of God out now on deadmau5’ label mau5trap, has taken over dance floors with its pulsing vocals and driving bass lines. The EP has solidified i_o’s signature heavy sound in the forefront of dance music’s most exciting new arrivals. With prolific releases on mau5trap, co-signs from deadmau5, Above & Beyond and JAUZ, along with highly anticipated appearances at Creamfields and Electric Zoo (fans also caught his mesmerizing sets earlier this year at Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival), as well as direct support slots on deadmau5’ CUBEV3 tour in Dallas, Los Angeles and elsewhere to be announced very soon, expect to see i_o everywhere.

Says i_o, “In  2017, deadmau5 brought Cube 2.1 to LA for a few shows. A friend took me to one of the nights and we were lucky enough to get to go to the Factory 93 warehouse after party. I was producing under a variety of projects at the time but that night, seeing deadmau5 in his full form with the cube, followed by him in a warehouse ripping through a two-hour techno set was enough to kick start me into taking the leap with the i_o project. Two years later I’m in my own element, excited to be joining forces on the cubev3 tour.”

i_o in the press:

“Possession’ is one of those tracks so good that you might actually have to stop dancing for a second when you hear it at the club, just to spend a moment in awe of everything that’s happening. The melodic trance banger by Los Angeles-based producer i_o launches with a signature kick drum, to which is added frenetic beat layer; then subtract the kick drum, add a very Green Velvet-style vocal, add the kick drum back in and ride it out for a minute before a siren synth takes the entire operation to the next level. Coming from i_o’s for track House of God EP, our today via mau5trap, ‘Possession’ is dark, massive and entirely undeniable.” — Billboard Dance

“i_o brings techno to another level…” – EDM Sauce

“At the intersection of defiance and progression, close to the precipice of looming darkness and rising from the depths of the cyber realm stands i_o. The enigmatic producer has built an undeniable reputation with his progressive techno stances, carving out slices of robust bass lines and melodic chords for underground pleasure.” — Earmilk

“Beneath the seams of the overabundance of happy-go-lucky EDM, there lies the realm of i_o’s House of God EP. Raising techno demons from the depths of the mau5trap label, i_o brings us his biggest and darkest EP release to date.” — EDM Tunes

“i_o’s House of God EP makes us believers.” — NOISEPRN

House of God spans a large expanse of the techno genre in just four tracks, from the melodic to the groovy. A true representation of i_o’s production prowess.” — CULTR

About KAYZO:

Huston-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ KAYZO, née Hayden Capuozzo, is one of the fastest-rising electronic artists of this decade. His versatile sound—high energy melodies bestrewn with pummeling beats—defies genres and challenges sonic boundaries: in one single song, he’ll traverse heavy metal via shredding guitar solos, dubstep-heavy bass, hardstyle-fueled aggression, and hypnotizing psytrance loops. His flexibility as a producer has earned him official releases with all the top dogs in electronic music and has garnered him collaborations with and remix duties for electronic giants like DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, and SLANDER, among many others. Taking the electronic-rock hybrid to new ground, he remixed the 2000 alt-metal smash hit “Last Resort” from nu metal icons Papa Roach. Dubbed a “real smasher” by Billboard, the remix has amassed more than 13 million Spotify streams. Elsewhere, the dubstep monster “Wake Up,” his collaboration with RIOT, counts more than 20 million streams on Spotify, with an additional 3 million on SoundCloud. His bass-fluid, shape shifting sound and bold take on production has come to define KAYZO’s electrifying style and creatively experimental direction, as best captured on OVERLOAD, his debut artist album. Released January 2018 on his own Welcome Records imprint, distributed by Ultra Music, and counting more than 7 million streams on Spotify alone, OVERLOAD encapsulates the new KAYZO sound: a stimulating, cross-genre blend of rock theatrics and electronic futurism. A taste maker in his own right, KAYZO founded his own artist-run imprint, Doghouse Recordings, in 2016, which he later relaunched as Welcome Records in 2017. He also hosts his biweekly Doghouse Radio show, which airs every other Friday at 4pm PT/7pm ET on SiriusXM Channel 730 as part of Insomniac Radio. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019, KAYZO is today a bona fide global act.

SLANDER upcoming Tour Dates by Brian Rapaport

image1.png

SLANDER’s dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, Excision, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more. Amongst dozens of chart-topping remixes, their original Heaven Trap hit “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ has been listened to over 10 million times while being championed by Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint.

Beyond building a mint name for themselves through jaw-dropping original productions and massive collaborations, SLANDER also include “label heads” to their resume. The LA-based duo recently turned their popular Gud Vibrations brand into an official record label with good friend NGHTMRE ensuring their legions of fans that their famous GUD VIBES are only getting started. Based on their Mad Decent released single “Gud Vibrations”, best friends NGHTMRE and SLANDER decided to build their brand together, supporting good music, good friendships, and good vibes. Their GV brand has seen exponential growth with a world-wide audience. Back to back sellout nights headlining the Hollywood Palladium was quickly followed by selling out the NOS event center with 10,000 fans while at the same time taking the dance music scene by storm with the first appearance of their new mind-blowing stage production, “The Atom”. In 2017 and 2018 they took “THE ATOM” to sold out shows at Red Rocks, as well as curating their own stage with it at Nocturnal Wonderland.

Attesting to their dynamic nature as artists, SLANDER’s productions range from cinematic and melodic to bone-jarring and foot-stomping, always with a common thread of sophisticated soundscapes and captivating energy which they will bring to some of the biggest festival brands around the world this summer.

Later on, over Labor Day Weekend (September 1), SLANDER and NGHTMRE will present the Gud Vibrations stage at New York’s largest and longest running electronic music festival Electric Zoo. The stage will highlight performances from both acts along with other artists especially curated by them including GTA, Boogie T & Squanto, WAVEDASH, Shadient and more.

Immediately following Electric Zoo, the duo will set off with NGHTMRE on their co-headlining “The Alchemy Tour” alongside Seven Lions and the Glitch Mob. A massive undertaking produced by Live Nation brings this stacked show to arenas, amphitheaters, and more for a once-in-a-generation alliance of four artistic powerhouses, will kick off September 4th in Charlotte, NC. and make stops in Pittsburgh, Austin, The Gorge in Seattle, Shorline Amphitheater in San Francisco and more before wrapping October 13th in Phoenix, AZ. The duo will re-engage “The Atom” production for the tour. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com

You can also hear SLANDER’s weekly Gud Vibrations radio show on Sirius XM, Diplo’s Revolution.

About MSTRKRFT:
MSTRKRFT (pronounced “master kraft”) are the alter ego of Death from Above 1979’s Jesse F. Keeler along with producer AP-P. Hailing from Toronto, the duo makes a move from DFA 1979’s abrasive rock to robotic electronic complete with vocoders and handclaps. In addition to releasing two single (“Easy Love”, and “Work on You”) and an LP in July 2006 on Last Gang Records, MSTRKRFT have remixed several buzz bands such as Metric, Wolfmother, the Kills, and Bloc Party, As their profile grew (and their album was re-released by Modular) they also begun remixing bigger names like Kylie Minogue, Usher, and John Legend, as well as more pop-leaning artists like Annie and Jess McCartney. For their second album, 2009’s Fist of God, the duo jumped to Dim Mak/Downtown and scored guest appearances from Ghostface Killah and E-40. The album spawned two hits with John Legend (“Heartbreaker”) and N.O.R.E (“Bounce”). A DFA reunion would keep Keeler busy in the years between MSTRKRFT releases, and the duo would not reappear until 2016 when they released their third album Operator. The duo currently have a stripped down pure techno sound and are busy releasing new singles on their own new imprint, Oro Records.

About KAYZO:
Huston-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ KAYZO, née Hayden Capuozzo, is one of the fastest-rising electronic artists of this decade. His versatile sound—high energy melodies bestrewn with pummeling beats—defies genres and challenges sonic boundaries: in one single song, he’ll traverse heavy metal via shredding guitar solos, dubstep-heavy bass, hardstyle-fueled aggression, and hypnotizing psytrance loops. His flexibility as a producer has earned hum official releases with all the top dogs in electronic music and has garnered him collaborations with and remix duties for electronic giants like DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, and SLANDER, among many others. Taking the electronic-rock hybrid to new ground, remixed the 2000 alt-metal smash hit “Last Resort” from mu metal icons Papa Roach. Dubbed a “real smasher” by Billboard, the remix has amasses more than 17 million Spotify streams. Elsewhere, the dub-step monster “Wake Up,” his collaboration with RIOT, counts more than 21 million streams on Spotify, with an additional 3 million on SoundCloud. His bass-fluid, shape shifting sound and bold take on production has come to define KAYZO’s electrifying style and creatively experimental direction, as best captured on OVERLOAD, his debut artist album. Released January 2018 on his own Welcome Records imprint, distributed by Ultra Music, OVERLOAD encapsulated the new KAYZO sound: a stimulating, cross-genre blend of rock theatrics and electronic futurism. A taste maker in his own right, KAYZO founded his own artist-run imprint, Doghouse Recordings in 2016 which he later relaunched as Welcome Records in 2017. He also hosts his biweekly Doghouse Radio show, which airs every other Friday at 4pm PT/7pm ET on SiriusXM Channel 730 as part Insomniac Radio. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019, KAYZO is today a bona fide global act.

ABOVE AND BEYOND RELEASE 49-MINUTE AMBIENT ALBUM 'FLOW STATE' // OUT NOW ON ANJUNABEATS by Brian Rapaport

AboveandBeyondFlowState.jpg

ABOVE AND BEYOND RELEASE 49-MINUTE, 39 TRACK AMBIENT ALBUM FLOW STATE // OUT NOW VIA ANJUNABEATS

Stream, Purchase, & Download Flow State // HERE.

It’s been nearly a year from their last full album release of Common Ground, released in 2018 on Ajunabeats. Above & Beyond (Paavo Siljamäki, Tony McGuinness, Jono Grant) have spent the last several years on an almost non stop tour traveling the world, playing some of the largest and most artist to audience emotionally-connected shows in the electronic scene today. Flow State is a 49 minute panoramic journey of ambient compositions and warm, neo-classical soundscapes that offer moments of meditative calm in these and often overwhelming times.

A break from the anthemic dance sound that swept Above & Beyond’s Common Ground LP to #3 in the Billboard Album Charts in 2018, Flow State is the culmination of a journey which began at Burning Man in 2014.

A chance encounter on the Playa led to a spontaneous sunset yoga set on the infamous Robot Heart stage, guided by renowned yogi Elena Brower. A magical and spiritual experience for those present, it inspired Above & Beyond to begin opening their biggest global gigs with yoga sets, creating transformative experiences for 25,000 strong crowds at The Gorge Amphitheater in Washington and Huntington Beach, California. The original Burning Man yoga set (Above & Beyond - Robot Heart - Burning Man 2014) has subsequently gone on to amass over 2 million streams on SoundCloud.

As the band began writing more original music for these yoga sessions, the seed for Flow State was sown.

”Our music has always been about getting in touch with, and understanding and accepting our emotions. After those amazing yoga sets, we realized that there is a bigger place for this more reflective music within our little universe,” explains Above & Beyond’s Paavo Siljamaki. “With the Flow State project, we want to help bring people’s attention and focus towards helping themselves find better mental fitness and overall happiness in life,” adds Siljamaki. “Through raised awareness, being more present, one can reach a state of flow: a creative and free state of mind where time, fear and stress dissipate.”

To long-time fans of Above & Beyond, this new album will come as no surprise; quieter moment have always been essential components of their chart-topping electronic albums. Alongside 14 new compositions, 3 of the band’s classic ambient works are remastered for Flow State, including the iconic ‘Sun In Your Eyes’, a track currently given a new lease of life via DJ support from taste makers such as Jamie XX.

Designed to be experienced in its entirety, the LP rewards complete, focuses listening and encourages a head space where the journey becomes the destination - extending a canon that includes Brian Eno’s ‘Music For Airports’, KLF’s ‘Chill Out’, and The Orb’s ‘Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld’.

In addition to the 49 minute journey, Elena Brower leads a 13 minute life-affirming talk set to the music from Flow State. The band and Elena hope it aids in the journey towards self-acceptance, “Flow State is about the subtlest, innermost conversation, trusting ourselves, and looking inward for acceptance. That acceptance of our own humanity is an experience of Flow State. It’s a profoundly peaceful space for listening and healing".

About Above & Beyond:
One of the most Successful trance acts of the 2000’s and 2010’s, Above & Beyond are a British trio known for their production and remix work, as well as their DJ performances are record label. Founded in 2000 in London, the trio is comprised of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Although, they garnered early acclaim for a high-profile remix of Madonna’s “What It Feels Like For A Girl”, Above & Beyond experienced a steady ascent as producers and as a live act. They eventually graduated to sell-out venues in their native U.K. and in the U.S. After breaking into the main stream in 2015 with their third studio album, We Are All We Need, they scored a Top Three U.S. hit with 2018’s Common Ground.

Prior to founding Above & Beyond, Grant and Siljamäki met the University of Westminster and founded the Anjunabeats label. Shortly afterward, they met McGuinness, teamed up as Above & Beyond, and did a remix for Chakra’s “Home”. One remix led to another, culminating in 2001 with an attention-getting remix of Madonna’s “What It Feels Like For A Girl”. Other early Above & Beyond remixes of note included Aurora’s “Ordinary World”, Fragma’s “Everytime You Need Me”, and Perpetuous Dreamer’s “The Sound of Goodbye.” As a DJ act, Above & Beyond made their debut in 2002 and steadily worked their way up into the Top Ten of the much-touted DJ Mag Top 100 poll.

From a production stand point, Above & Beyond made their debut in 2002 with the single “Far From In Love,” a vocal trance anthem featuring Kate Cameron. Around this same time, Grant, McGuinness, and Siljamäki presented the first volume of their Anjunabeats mixtape series and formed the group OceanLab, their most prominent alias and splinter project (among many others, including Anjunabeats, Tranquility Base, Dirt Devils, Free State, Rollerball, Tongue of God, and Zed-X). They made their production debut under that name in 2001 with “Clear Blue Water” and continued releasing new material as such throughout the decade, most notably the smash hit “Satellite” in 2004. Above & Beyond’s full-length album debut came in 2006 with Tri-State. The trio continued to release supplemental singles and issued a second album, Group Therapy, in 2011, following it with a set of stripped-down re-recordings titled Acoustic.

We Are All We Need
, released in 2015, was their most successful set to that point. Their third studio album, it was heavily invested in song craft with contributions from the likes of Zoe Johnston and Alex Vargas, and debuted at number 12 in the U.K. In the U.S., it topped Billboard’s dance chart and cracked the Top 40 of the all-genre Billboard 200. The trio returned the following year with Acoustic II, which featured stripped-back, string-laden reworkings of tracks from their 2015 album, as well as their extensive back catalog. Group Therapy 200 arrived in 2016, along with the 13th installment of Anjunabeats. The next year, Group Therapy 248 and Journey to ABGT250 were released.

In 2018, the trio delivered their fourth official album, Common Ground. The effort rose to the number three spot on Billboard 200, the highest for a British electronic group in the chart’s history. The set also featured Zoe Johnston, Richard Bedford, Justine Suissa, and Marty Longstaff on guest vocals. Early 2019 saw the release of the single “Distorted Truth” ahead of the arrival of the Common Ground Companion EP, which arrived later that March.

These include i_o as direct support on all dates, with No Mana, Monstergetdown, ATTLAS, BlackGummy, Sara Landry, and EDDIE on select dates. Canadian pop star Lights will join as special guest throughout. Exact billing can be found below and look for additional support talent to be announced soon for the remainder of the tour.

Produced by Live Nation, the 16-city tour will kick off September 12 in Dallas and will see deadmau5 bringing his brand new cubev3 production to major markets across the continent. His fourth major North American tour with the cube will find him landing in Austin, San Francisco, Phoenix, Chicago, San Jose, Seattle, and more. Los Angeles has deadmau5 returning to Hollywood’s legendary Palladium where he first broke records of most continuous sold-out shows in a row in 2011. Before launching his stateside leg deadmau5 will take his cube to Creamfields this August for it’s U.K. debut.

About the artists:

i_o
From the corner of the cyber realm comes . Combining hard techno grooves with dark evolving melodies, i_o brings together dance music’s finest. With influences ranging from deadmau5 to UMEK to techno’s most underground, i_o is poised to take over the world’s main stages with driving sets that grasp and don’t let go. 2018 saw an overwhelming amount of releases on mau5trap including his 2018 hit “Low” as well as his most recent Death by Techno EP. This yea also saw his follow-up collaboration with Tommy Trash on the label, including a remix of deadmau5’ “Imaginary Friends” remix via we are friends vol. 008. With co-signs from deadmau5, Above and Beyond, Armin Van Buren, Andrew Rayel, and Jauz, i_o is undoubtedly a rising force in the electronic soundscape.

No Mana
Jordan Orcaz (P.K.A. No Mana) is a music producer and digital visual artist based in Orange County. The name “No Mana” initially started as a gaming joke, and inevitably became the theme of the entire project. In 2014, he took the alias promptly after attending a few of his first festivals. Since then, as the project presented itself with a hybrid electro, techno and progressive house style of electronic dance music, complemented with the theme of a pixelated bottle of a magic potion, the producer has built relationships with, or, by the least, gained attention from the likes of deadmau5, Zedd, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Knife Party, and more. After independently publicizing himself with his free releases of his UP series, such relationships gave him leeway to opportunities such as: the debut label release of “Tell Me More”, a melodic production with a vocal collaboration with Jessica Ess, under deadmau5’s label mau5trap; releases and building relationships with Anjuna and Armada; and booking opportunities with notable festivals like EDC (Las Vegas, Orlando, and New York), Electric Zoo, Ultra, Beyond Wonderland, and many artists such as deadmau5, Feed Me, REZZ, Nero, and Jason Ross. While the artist remains loyal on mau5trap, he continued to release quasi-LP/EPs (6-track releases) such as Game Over, Above the Blue, Assorted Repetitions, and Melted Candy; and has collaborated with fellow label mates such as i_o and Fay with the release of “Bad Things”, and EDDIE with “Untitled Forever”. Despite his label loyalty, No Mana is not exclusive to the label and finds himself exploring the idea of working with other labels - one most notable being Anjuna as he released his single, “Panic” with Jessica Ess.

BlackGummy
BlackGummy began as the brainchild of Los Angeles-based producer Iman Marouf. Marouf discovered the entity called “BlackGummy” in 2013 during a trip to the Middle East and Asia, and instantly formed a unique and inseparable bond with the alien-like idol. Since their first meeting, the producer and the entity have virtually conjoined into an indivisible whole, never leaving one another’s side. BlackGummy has an obsessive fascination for sound design and music production. He views his productions as checkpoints in a tireless quest to improve his mastery of this skill, routinely spending 15 hours a day honing his craft. In 2015, mau5trap discovered BlackGummy, and immediately recognized his unique prowess for production and sound design. Later that year, the label released BlackGummy’s first original — “Lullaby” — on mau5trap’s we are friends compilation, which Earmilk called a “can’t miss.” In February 2016, mau5trap released BlackGummy’s debut EP titled Singularity inspired by the concept of “technological singularity,” which Dancing Astronaut praised as “an intriguing artistic vision,” which “moves uninhibited from dark industrial to uplifting progressive, challenging the notion that producing one style necessitates ignoring the other.”

ATTLAS
Over the course of the past four years, ATTLAS (Canadian musician Jeff Hartford) has become one of mau5trap’s most celebrated artists. Since his first mau5trap releases, ATTLAS has developed an enthusiastic fan base that awaits each release with bated breath. They particularly embraced his two hour-long Storyline mixes in 2016 which incorporate dialogue into music. Hartford realized he was regularly listening to DJ sets while he was simply cooking or doing other day-to-day activities and was much more immersed in them than he would be in a nightclub setting. ATTLAS looks to debuting his first album in fall 2019 – a body of work that’s been in progress for months. The album will “synthesize all the experiences and wandering paths that ATTLAS walks,” according to Hartford, bringing together heavier sounds and the emotive melodies he’s built his musical brand on. “[The album is me] trying to learn who I am and tell my story through music, which has given me so much and has been a home for me: a place to create, a shelter from the storm, and a launch pad into the greatest adventure of my life.”


Monstergetdown

Monstergetdown was born from a need to create not only new music, but new soundscapes altogether. He’s as much an artist as he is a shape-shifter– moving between genres seamlessly and taking to the streets to turn everyday sounds into groovy and atmospheric house and techno. Growing up in Boyle Heights, an area just east of downtown Los Angeles, Monstergetdown began producing amid his discovery of artists like Green Velvet, Surkin, deadmau5, Paco Osuna, Stimming and Tim Green in 2007. In the shadow of a city famous for artifice, he used his love of music to start building something real and raw – a mix of house and techno. With release of his mau5trap Blakmajik EP, his track “That’s That” garnered attention from Pete Tong who played it out on his BBC1 Radio show. As he continues to tour with deadmau5 in both the US and Europe, Monstergetdown continues to expand and create sounds that go far beyond his LA roots.

Sian
Classic modern techno is exactly what Sian represents. When you have interests ranging from entomology, cosmology and marine biology, to the social impact of the rave generation, you tend to make unusual art. Sian stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent. Born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in southern Spain, he chose early to drop out of normal society and engage in the extraordinary. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of club culture, his tracks show an otherworldly, slow and hypnotic slant on big speaker electronic music. Sian just released his first installment of his Ultraviolet EP series on mau5trap in May. Ultraviolet 2.0 is due out later this summer.

Sara Landry
Austin, TX’ Sara Landry is a 25-year-old techno producer, DJ, sound designer and audio engineer. She prides herself on her Ableton chops and designs every detail of each track she writes, including all production, sound design, arranging, mixing, mastering, and vocals (where necessary). This approach has allowed Sara to rack up a notable list of accomplishments since the release of her first single in 2018; her music has been featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists (Techno Bunker, Electronic Circus, Electronic Rising), and in 2019 she signed to mau5trap, where she released her first multi-track techno EP Wait this past May.

EDDIE
Edwin Beganovic, popularly known as EDDIE, is not shy to the music industry. With his most recent EP release Disembodied in May of this year on mau5trap, EDDIE is quickly becoming a favorite with support from deadmau5, Rezz, Kayzo, and many others. EDDIE is not confining himself to a genre; he’s been creating music that is a combination between techno and electro without any BPM restrictions. The combination of the different styles of music is what has propelled EDDIE to where he is today, with over a total of one million streams on his Bad Habits EP released in 2018. EDDIE is a name to be watching throughout 2019, with lots of new music coming out he isn’t going to stop any time soon.

The original cube debuted at Coachella April 2010, catapulting deadmau5 to become one of the most in-demand live acts int the world, with its follow-up Cube 2.1 arriving in 2017 at the launch of his “lots of shows in a row tour.” cubev3 - created by deadmau5 with Chris Schroeder of Chris Schroeder Productions, with technical design by Collyns Stenzel, and video content plus additional programming by deadmau5 - comes to life from Miami with the semitransparent look and deadmau5 custom content. Cubev3 will be the most complex production he has ever presented changing positions from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and rotate 360 degrees with mind bending content from deadmau5 & his custom touch designer system.

ANABEL ENGLUND DROPS NEW SINGLE "SO HOT" (MK & NIGHTLAPSE REMIX) by Brian Rapaport

ANABEL ENGLUND DROPS NEW SINGLE “SO HOT” (MK & NIGHTLAPSE) REMIX ON MK’S FRESHLY RE IMAGINED AREA 10 LABEL VIA ULTRA MUSIC

AN INFECTIOUS REWORK BY MK & NIGHTLAPSE MARKS THE FIRST SINGLE RELEASE FROM HER FORTHCOMING EP MESSING WITH MAGIC DUE OUT THIS FALL — LISTEN HERE.

U.S singer, songwriter, and producer Anabel Englund has delivered her scintillating new single “So Hot” (MK & Nightlapse Remix) as the first release on MK’s relaunched iconic Detroit label AREA 10 via Ultra Records. Stream/Listen/Download available on all platforms now HERE: https://ffm.to/sohot-mknlrmx

Underpinned by her fleeting, weightless vocals, “So Hot” has Englund tapping into her trademark, deeply personal brand of music that defies categorization by sound and opts for vibe instead. Her proven wingspan ranges from house to indie to places yet undiscovered. With shimmering synths and lyrics alluding to “A kind of paradise”, the release is a re-work by MK and Nightlapse that seems destined for the beaches of Ibiza, Miami, St. Barths, Rimini, Croatia, the Balaerics and beyond.

Anabel Englund first worked with MK back in 2012 on Hot Creations. Before collaborating with MK, she was featured live and on record as a key member of the legendary group Hot Natured with Jamie Jones and Lee Foss. Shortly after, Englund, MK and Foss worked together on the Pleasure State project and released notable songs like “Ghost In The System” and “Electricity,” a lauded track that made it onto the BBC Radio 1 end-of-year Essential Mix play.

MK’s iconic Detroit Area10 brand re-enters the world of releasing music and this time alongside the mother-ship Ultra Music, representing a new chapter in the story of MK. It is no wonder that he has enlisted his close friend, sometimes muse and multi-talented artist Anabel Englund to put out the label’s maiden release remixed by MK and Area10 label mates Nightlapse. The single is the precursor to Englund’s forthcoming Messing With Me EP due out this fall.

Meanwhile, AREA10, is in the midst of it’s second summer residency at Ibiza Rocks Hotel. The brand is known for hosting and throwing parties around the world at events such as Miami Music Week, ADE, Tomorrowland, SW4, Ireland’s O3 Arena, Parklife, Pacha, the Warehouse Project and more.

KEYS N KRATES DELIVER SOULFUL NEW 11 TRACK MIX TAPE 'A BEAT TAPE FOR YOUR FRIENDS' by Brian Rapaport

KNK_ABeatTapeForYourFriends.jpeg

It’s been almost a year since the dynamic trio elevated their sound after crafting Cura, which was released as their debut artist album on Dim Mak Records in 2018. Reflecting upon a sonic evolution of many years in the making, Cura sees KEYS N KRATES evolving from revered instrumental beat-makers into musically sophisticated producers and song writers. Now with a full-length debut album, multiple EP releases and plenty of down time in the books, the crew has a new creative vision set forth as they continue to progress their creative sonic world delivering a high energy, hard hitting, soulful 11 track and 24 minute mixtape A Beat Tape For Your Friends.

The mixtape revisits the sample based, boom-bap beats and harmonious vocal layers that have become a cornerstone of the Keys N Krates aesthetic. The hard hitting instrumentals romp through over a decades worth of genre changing sounds from early hip-hop sample based beats to modern satiny synth driven electronic leads and melds them through disco-tinged future R&B grooves, and rising sensational vocal layers. Soulful electronic music created with an organic touch, elevated to a mature intrinsically eclectic sound.

Producing music for over a decades long now, the Toronto natives, KEYS N KRATES have carved an extensive and remarkable path for them selves following a bass-centric, sample-driven sound which melds the realms of electronic, hip-hop, and beyond. The trio ensemble—composed of drummer Adam Tune, keyboardist David Matisse, and turntablist Jr. .Flo (Greg Dawson) — has built a venerable reputation as one of the leading live electronic acts today on the strength of their onstage instrumentation and energetic sets. With the release of A Beat Tape For Your Friends, the crew continues to yet again push the limits of their strength as sonic sensations, with what feels like the accumulation of many years in the making coming together in one 11 track song compilation.

Keys N Krates first broke into the mainstream with the SOLOW EP, released on Dim Mak in 2013, and featured the breakthrough single “Dum Dee Dum”, which recently received gold certification in the US in 2017. Since it’s release, the track’s cheeky official music video was nominated for a Prism Prize by the Association for Music and Innovative Arts in Canada as well as a Berlin Music Video Award in Germany in 2014. In 2013, the group later released a remix of the track featuring a collection of buzzing Chicago-based rappers, including G.O.O.D. Music’s Cyhi the Prynce (Cydel Charles Young), as well as King Louie (Louis King Johnson, Jr.), and Tree (Tremaine Johnson). Elsewhere, the group released “Keep it 100” on Mad Decent Records in 2014 as a collaboration with producer/DJ Gradtheft, which was featured in a trailer for the animated film Minions in 2015 and won for Best EDM/Dance Video in the 2015 Much Music Video Awards in Canada. In 2016, Keys N Krates took home their first win at the Juno Awards in Canada in the Dance Recording of the Year category for their song “Save Me,” off the Midnite Mass EP, released on Dim Mak Records in 2016, featuring British singer / songwriter Katy B. The group’s discography also includes the Everynite EP (Dim Mak, 2014), LUCID DREAMS EP (Dim Mak, 2013), Blackout EP (2011), as well as numerous remixes.

KEYS N KRATES upcoming concert kicks off tonight, July 19, 8:30-9:30 PM MST on the Tundra Stage for Global Dance Festival 2019 at the Broncos Stadium at Mile High, Denver, CO, US. Tickets can be purchased here.
