YDG RETURNS FROM FRESH BLOOD VOL. 2 WITH HEAVY “WARLORDS”

Returning to the Buygore Records sub label Fresh Blood​ comes a familiar face from the 2017 Fresh Blood Vol. 2 compilation widely known as YDG​. Fully loaded with heavy vibrations, a hard industrial feel, and intricate sound designs, YDG’s latest musical effort “Warlords” melds the auditory with the visual. While straying away from his debut Fresh Blood release
“1234”, YDG’s new single illustrates his adeptness in producing a boundless range of sounds.

Hooking listeners with a horrific, piercing ringing, “Warlords” is a
culmination of bass heavy elements spliced together for a well-crafted
masterpiece. What sounds like violent basslines rotating on an axel helps sustain the aggressive energy level throughout the track. Oscillating builds and arpeggiated synths dive into an eerie interlude, yielding a suspenseful sensation as listeners prepare for the explosive conclusion. Possessing a powerful electronic feel, YDG’s “Warlords” displays the jagged edge of experimental bass music, coming to the Fresh Blood imprint on April 17th.

THE GLITCH MOB RELEASE REZZ REMIX OF ‘I COULD BE ANYTHING’ (FEAT. ELOHIM)

Los Angeles-based trio The Glitch Mob, comprised of Boreta (Justin Boreta), edIT (Ed Ma), and Ooah (Joshua Mayer), have become one of the worlds’ most beloved live electronic acts, and are set to take their talents overseas April 2018, having already sold out shows in Paris, London and Berlin.
Ahead of their cross continental journey, the LA-based group have released a stunning remix from Canadian DJ and producer Isabelle Rezazadeh aka REZZ. The rising star has taken the industry by storm with her ground-breaking releases, notably snatching up the crown as Billboard Dance’s Breakout Artist in 2017. Her interpretation of The Glitch Mob’s track ‘I Could Be Anything’ (Feat. Elohim) is nothing less than astonishing. A distinctive bass drum permeates the intro of the cut, ultimately intertwining with Glitch Mob’s core production and Elohim’s hovering vocals. The track moves effortlessly toward an analog heavy drop that is sure to captivate listeners across both distinct fanbases.
I’m a fan of both artists [The Glitch Mob, Elohim] & when I was sent the original song, I wanted to give it my own twist.’  REZZ
The video for the REZZ remix of ‘I Could Be Anything’ (Feat. Elohim) is also available to watch now. Another impressive creation from the pioneering trio, the video was crafted alongside the geniuses at Strangeloop Studios. Fans can expect psychedelic visuals and an array of truly mesmerising animations throughout their upcoming world tour.
It’s an honor to present the REZZ remix of our new track with Elohim. We are big fans of REZZ — there’s a natural harmony between our sounds. The music speaks for itself.’
– The Glitch Mob

DIM MAK’S NEIGHBORHOOD FEATURING STEVE AOKI, CARNAGE & MANY MORE

In 2006 and 2007, Steve Aoki’s music lifestyle brand DIM MAK held its first two NEIGHBORHOOD festivals in Los Angeles. These two legendary events featured burgeoning acts in the indie and electro movements, and represented ground zero of global underground culture at that time. Cut to 2018 – DIM MAK will now relaunch NEIGHBORHOOD as a community-centered mini-festival embarking in select North American markets. Inspired by the exciting and eclectic soundscape of modern music, DIM MAK is thrilled to kick off the rebirth of NEIGHBORHOOD in a city that is home to some of the most talented hip hop and electronic music artists in history – Brooklyn, NY. On June 10th, 2018Steve AokiCarnageQUIX,Ricky RemedyMax StylerR3LLBok Nero, Noise Cans and a Special Guest (TBA) will provide the foundation for thisNEIGHBORHOOD, setting up shop at the majestic Brooklyn Mirage.

NEWCOMER SUBDOCTA MAKES FRESH BLOOD DEBUT WITH NEW SINGLE “SKELETON KEY”

Aiming to provide a platform for artists of all calibers, the Buygore Records ​sub label Fresh Blood says hello to a new face known as SubDocta​. In this debut single, “Skeleton Key” is an attention grabbing, dub heavy sonic concoction introducing the darker, more innovative side of electronic
music.

Opening with a slow-burning introduction, “Skeleton Key” dives head first into a deep abyss of phlegmatic wobbles and ravenous rhythms. SubDocta successfully delivers a smooth blend of metallicsounds, speaker rattling basslines, and eerie melodies keeping the listeners on their toes. Releasing on April 10th via Buygore’s Fresh Blood imprint, “Skeleton Key” illustrates experimentation at it’s finest.

SubDocta is known for throwing down his own brand of dubstep, trap, and hybrid styles too odd for the typical nightclub scene. His eclectic taste and production skills have landed him performances at festivals and shows throughout the west and beyond including Lucidity, The Bounce, Emissions Bass Culture, Enchanted Forest, The Untz, StillDream, The Pirate Party,
and Bass Camp multiple years in a row. With releases on labels such as MalLabel and ShadowtrixMusic, plus with Bassnectar supporting his songs, he has proven himself worthy of our ever-growing scene. Look forward to forthcoming singles, EPs and heavy festival/touring performances in 2018; SubDocta is on his way up.

Frank Walker releases “Footprints” on Astralwerks

Last year, Frank Walker found himself in Miami as an up-and-coming DJ who’d locked down a slot at the coveted mainstage of Ultra Music Festival. With the city plastered in stickers branded with the statement “Hello, My Name Is Frank Walker”, Miami was about to get a real introduction to this rising star. Having just released a four-track EP only days before the event, Frank Walker slayed that daytime slot, etching his spot in dance music.

 

Now, a year later, Frank Walker continues to impress, by signing to the esteemed Astralwerks with his latest work “Footprints” featuring Callum Stewart. The producer’s music background stems in rock music and in listening to his productions, it’s evident that this allows Frank Walker to push his creative boundaries.

The new track “Footprints” breaks away from his previously established style, as Frank Walker takes on a more contemporary funk approach. With soft guitar riffs and rhythmic snaps, the track’s sunny beats kick off and wind into a smooth, deep bassline. Being a vocal-focused producer, Frank Walker’s work is perfectly paired with Callum Stewart’s contagious croons. The young Ireland-based songwriter has been penning songs and singing his own tunes since the age of 13. Now, Callum Stewart can be found performing with the likes of Nile Rodgers and Rudimental. The two talents have teamed up to create a song that’s perfect for the summer and is sure to set festival-season aglow.

Niveau Zero x Holly – Are We Alone?

Following his latest Fresh Blood ​release with his 2017 ‘Beijing’ EP, the Portugal-based producer Holly ​returns to the Buygore Records ​sub-label with a new sound. Recruiting fellow Fresh Blood artist Niveau Zero​, “Are We Alone” is a fiery crossover of global influences from Portugal to France.

Holly is coming back stronger than ever in “Are We Alone?”; splicing together the multi-layered sound design Holly is known for while Niveau Zero’s harder edge delivers an industrial vibe to the track, these two are without a doubt a dangerous duo. The pixelating prelude leads into an oscillating build up calling attention to their experimentation with evolving styles. Out on March 20th, Niveau Zero and Holly come together in “Are We Alone?”

Frédéric Garcia, a.k.a. Niveau Zero, a true pioneer of French bass-music and co-founder the of Château Bruyant records, is an artist with various influences. With two albums and numerous EPs released by prestigious labels such as Buygore, Never say die, Uplink Audio, Rottun, Ad
Noiseam, DOOM Music, H.E.N.C.H, and Boka rec, Niveau Zero is continually touring across the
world — from Russia to the USA, from Liban to Mexico. He can be found playing acclaimed clubs like Berghain or Razzmatazz and famous festivals like Fusion, I LOVE TECHNO, Astropolis, les Transmusicales de Rennes, Le Printemps de Bourges, la Technoparade and Dream Nation.
Along with appearing on BBC1 and Rinse FM, he presents and promotes his own radio show on RINSE FRANCE. He is mixed and supported by major artists in the music scene like Figure, Dirtyphonics, Excision, Downlink, Skism and more. His latest EP, “00:00”, in collaboration with Krimer, The Unuk, XTRONX and released by Downlink’s imprint Uplink Audio is a genuine demonstration of power. Protect ya neck!

Despite hitting the scene a mere four years ago, Lisbon-based Holly has toured America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia stemming from a flood of releases on Buygore, Fool’s Gold, Dim Mak, Revealed, Spinnin, Circus Records, Monstercat and Division Recordings. Whilst earning steadfast support from the likes of Bassnectar, Baauer, Noisia, DJ Shadow, Martin
Garrix, Borgore, The Chainsmokers, Hardwell, Afrojack and Steve Aoki, he was featured in DJ MAG and Run The Trap as one of their ‘Top 25 Artists to Watch in 2018’. Holly has also won the prestige A-Trak beat battle “Goldie Award” in 2017. With a musical background stemming from Hip-Hop, DnB and all corners of the bass world, Holly’s live performances emote a balanced mix of raw energy, excitement and eclectic taste that’s helped him develop a loyal following around the globe.
