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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

While the JUNO- awarded summer hit “Body” (feat. brando) continues to rise in the stream numbers and accolades like crazy, LOUD LUXERY are looking to build on the momentum of their global smash with a brand-new, equally infectious crossover track. Created in tandem with New York-born, L.A-raised single Bryce Vine, whose track “La La Land” is currently in the Top 20 of the U.S. Pop charts and featured in Spotify’s ‘Today’s Top Hits’ playlist. “I’m Not Alright” is set to become the next big thing in the electronic music realm.

Listen to Loud Luxery and Bryce Vine - I’m Not Alright

In spite of what the title and lyrics suggest, “I’m Not Alright” manages to put a pretty carefree vibe on the table. Juggling country-esque guitar tones, and striding vocals with jumpy synth stab in a manner that proves wonderfully easy on the ear, this summer-scented hit-to-be is definitely oozing with air wave potential.

“We met Bryce at a party in LA through a mutual friend when we got back from our fall tour. Then next day, he came over and showed us an idea that was just a guitar and the chorus,” says LOUD LUXERY. “During our winter tour we worked across North America in hotel rooms, studios, and even an Uber with our Headphones to finish writing the song. At the end of the day we are all human, we all make mistakes, but this song is about coming to terms with your flaws.”

“Loud Luxery are some of my favorite dudes I’ve met in this industry. They really care about the music they make, and we share a mantra of keeping life fun and exciting!”, adds Vine.

It’s been an amazing ride for LOUD LUXERY (Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace). Since the Juno-Award winning duo debuted on Armada Music in late 2017 with their now worldwide smash hit “Body” (feat. brando)— the most played song on dance radio for all of 2018—they sold platinum across the globe (7x in Canada, 3x in Australia, 2x in Switzerland, and 1x in the U.K. / U.S. / Netherlands / Austria, and more), held the #1 spot in the U.S. Media base Dance Airplay chart for two weeks, charted in the Top 40 of U.S. Pop radio and the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart (#4) and accumulated hundreds of millions of plays across the most popular streaming services. To date on Spotify alone the track has received over 531,000,000 plays. It’s follow-up single “Love No More” (with anders) garnered 12 million streams on Spotify alone in it's first month and currently sits at an impressive 86 million+ plays on the streaming platform. On top of the “Nights Like This” tour, also look for Loud Luxery to make their debut at Lollapalooza in Chicago and on the mainstage of Tomorrowland in Europe this summer alongside Parookaville, Mysteryland and a slew of other festivals, in addition to their residency plays at Hakkasan, Omnia, and Wet Republic in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Canada’s fastest rising dance act will embark on their first ever major headlining North American tour this fall. Launching August 29 in Salt Lake City, LOUD LUXERY’S “NIGHTS LIKE THIS” TOUR will take the duo on a two-month long trek to many markets along each of the continent’s coasts and in-between. The full routing follows below. Joining LOUD LUXERY on select dates will be special guests CID, Dzeko, MEDUZA, Bijou, Black Caviar, Frank Walker, Justin Caruso, and Midnight Kids. Tickets are on sale now at www.loudluxerymusic.com.

Bryce Vine presents a genre-bending, East Coast-meets-West Coast sound all his own, drawn in equal parts from the bass-heavy reality rap influence of his father, the bright, pop sensibility of his mother, and a childhood spent between New York and L.A. His keen blend of laid back, in-the-cut hip-hop and anthemic choruses prompted Entertainment Weekly to praise his “boundary-pushing aesthetic” and TIME to say he “sounds like the definition of cool,” while VIBE asserts, “You can’t put Bryce Vine in a box.” His major label debut Carnival will be released July 26 on Sire Records, with inspirations that run the gamut of the pop culture zeitgeist, lyrically referencing his favorite sci-fi TV shows, ‘90s nostalgia and commentary on growing up in L.A., while effortlessly fusing the punk spirit of Blink-182 with homages to Tupac and Outkast. Following the breakthrough success of the Platinum-certified ‘Drew Barrymore’, soaring to Top 15 at both Top 40 and Rhythm radio and accumulating over 265 million streams to date, Bryce Vine began 2019 with his very first sold-out headline tour and “La La Land (feat YG)” following the same trajectory as his first single. He’s performed on Late Night with Seth Myers, the MTV VMAs pre-show, The Wendy Williams Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. A Teen Vogue expressed, “[His] smooth, unpretentious performance really sold us on Bryce as a breakout star.” Bryce Vine is on tour throughout the summer, with all dates and tickets available at brycevine.com.

British producer Chris Lake has made a remarkable name for himself in the dance music realm by creatively expressing himself through hard hitting house beats. Now, Lake delivers on a new remix for MK’s latest “Body 2 Body” out today (June 28) on Area10/Ultra Music.

Listen now here: https://ffm.to/b2b-chrislakermx

“When it comes to modern house masters, MK is among one of the genre's brightest, and so is British bass-lover Chris Lake. That's what makes it so exciting that their musical minds came together on a recent remix of MK's ‘Body 2 Body,’” wrote Kat Bein of Billboard Dance. “The original is a sensual mix of house and R&B, a driving club rhythm with pop-forward brightness. For his part, Lake injects the dance floor tune with darker late-night mood. The beat pumps a little heavier, the atmosphere fills with smoke, and the hook comes in strong with a psychedelic synth roar.”

Look for Lake’s track to also appear in the “Body 2 Body” remix package Area10/Ultra Music is releasing next Friday, July 5. Other artists included in the package are KC Lights, Meduza and Leftwing : Kody. There will also be a 6AM mix from KC Lights who also remixed MK’s global smash “17” to great acclaim and mixes from Treasure Fingers and Nightlapse.

MK’s “Body 2 Body” follows up to last year’s gold-selling single “Back & Forth” which peaked at #12 in the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart and remains a mainstay on streaming playlists everywhere. To date “Back & Forth” has been streamed over 60 million times on Spotify. This was preceded by 2017’s “17,” Kinchen’s most successful career release, amassing just under 120 million Spotify streams to date. “Body 2 Body” represents the next chapter in the career of this internationally acclaimed multi-talented artist, who continues to ride on his rapid ascent to the pinnacle of the dance music world.

Most recently MK was touted in SPIN’s 40 Best Deep House Tracks Of All Time for his song “Love Changes (Deep Mix)” featuring Alana.

KAYZO x YULTRON FEATURING OF MICE & MEN NEW SINGLE "NIGHT TERROR" by Brian Rapaport

KAYZO x YULTRON FEATURING OF MICE & MEN NEW SINGLE "NIGHT TERROR" Out now on Ultra Music — Listen Now Here

unnamed (3).jpg

The new single “Night Terror” from KAYZO X YULTRON featuring Of Mice & Men out today (June 26) on Ultra Music bridges three artists obsessed with heavy music and exploring new sonic territory — two prominent electronic producers fro the bass front and one of modern rock’s most distinguished acts. Listen now here: https://ffm.to/nightterror

“Night Terror” is a gut-punching record that gives bass lovers their fix layered with the hard edge of heavy metal. Best friends KAYZO and YULTRON—in the studio among meme wars and fan chats started work on the song, with YULTRON bringing in his long-time friends of Mice & Men to deliver extra texture with vocals, scorching guitars and live drums enhancing the producers’ unique soundscapes.

Lyrically the track also carries heavy weight. Says of Mice & Men’s Tino Artega, “‘Night Terror’ to me describes the vulnerability of our minds and the overwhelming sense of terror that can sneak into out thought when we lay awake at night. We all know that feeling and I think this song really shows how irrepressible those feelings can become sometimes”.

“Night Terror” follows previous KAYZO collaborations with Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low (“Up In Flames”), Underoath (“Waster Space“), Blessthefall (“Before The Storm“) and “Alone” with New England-based post-hardcore band Our Last Night. Look for a new album from KAYZO to be released very soon.

About of Mice & Men:

21st century hard rock leaders of Mice & Men — vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley, guitarist Alan Ashby, drummer Valentino Artega, and guitarist Phil Manansala—released their latest album Defy, on January 19, 2018. They spent the start of 2019 wrapping up more new music with producer Josh Wilber (Lamb Of God, Trivium, Megadeath). The first taste of this came with the adrenaline-fueled track ‘How To Survive’. This was quickly followed by the unrelentingly heavy ‘Mushroom Cloud’, both delivered whilst the band did back to back US touring alongside Nothing More and Beartooth. Over the course of nearly a decade, Of Mice & Men have steadily risen to the top of the genre’s ranks, hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock and Independent Charts and No. 4 on the genre-spanning Top 200. The band has also racked up close to 5 million social media followers, along with a following so dedicated that it’s practically disciple-like in its fandom. Through the years, they’ve shared stages with artists such as Metallica, Linkin Park, Slipknot, and Queens of the Stone Age, holding their own all the while winning over new fans with each performance.

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’’ traverse heavy metal via shredding guitar solos, dub-step-heavy bass, hard style-fueled aggression, and hypnotizing psytrance loops. His flexibility as a producer has earned him official releases with many of dance music’s leading progressives and has garnered him collaborations with remixes for DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, 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 dub-step 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 7:30 as part of Insomniac Radio. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019, KAYZO is bona fide global act.
