Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Partner With Quintino On A New Soundtrack For ‘Patser’

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are at it again, directing their talent down diverse avenues and breaking down barriers outside of dance music. With this combination with Quintino, ‘Patser Bounce’, the boys again show why they are two of dance’s most in-demand names, even outside of electronic music circles, blurring the lines between entertainment’s many facets. Teased out during the pair’s recent ‘Bringing The Madness: Homecoming’ shows, the track highlights its ability to work the crowd as well as form the backdrop for one of this year’s most hotly-anticipated Belgian films – ‘Patser’.

Premiered last week, ‘Patser’ (meaning Gangsta) is the new and third feature film from Moroccan directors Adil El Arbi & Bilall Falah. Both Adil & Bilall are attracting Hollywood’s attention with this new movie and are currently in negotiations with Sony to direct the new Bad Boys 3 movie, with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence set to reunite for a third chapter in the much-loved cop series. Beyond contributing to the soundtrack with Patser Bounce’ the brothers Dimitri & Mike also feature in an acting capacity, expanding on previous on-screen outings together such as ‘Safety First: The Movie’Dimitri, in particular, has an active desire to further pursue film roles, with credits due in the upcoming Jean Claude Van Damme led ‘The Bouncer’, as well as George C. Romero’s ‘Rise Of The Living Dead’ – the follow up to cult-horror ‘Night Of The Living Dead’. The Belgian brothers are no strangers to soundtracking feature-lengths either, famously remixing the original Hans Zimmer theme ‘He’s A Pirate’, which appeared as an official remix in the form of a bonus digital track on the recent ‘Pirates Of The Carribean: Salazar’s Revenge’movie.
Commenting on their role in the music and story of the film the brother said:
“Contributing towards this incredible movie by providing not just on the soundtrack but also as actors within the narrative was a huge honor for us. We have a great love for the big screen and when Adil and Bilall reached out and invited us to be a part of Patser it was a project we both jumped at. The entire team have created something really exciting which we think cinema goers are going to love. We’re really proud of the final cut and to see ourselves on the big screen in what is our first full acting role is something very special.”
The track provides an upbeat, intense soundbed that mirrors the film’s narrative and reflects the action-packed, powerful monologue. With ‘Patser Bounce’Belgian’s favorite brothers demonstrate their ability to think outside the realms of dance music, combining a dancefloor primed weapon that also perfectly flows with the action on-screen.

ZEKE BEATS MAKES BUYGORE RECORDS DEBUT WITH NEW ‘DEVASTATE’ EP

The next Buygore installment introduces a widely-acclaimed face in the realm of freeform bass music. Say hello to Zeke Beats, a heavy weight in experimental sound design hailing from the land down under. The Australian music producer and DJ makes his Buygore Records debut with his new four-track ‘Devastate’ EP, set to be released February 9th, is a testament to his multi-layered, signature style sound design.

This four-track venture calls attention to Zeke Beats attention to detail, taking a formulaic approach to his intricate, experimental production skillset. ‘Devastate’ boasts a dramatic soundscape, featuring low-leveled basslines and high-pitched kicks that come together for a clean, contemporary edge. The EP kicks into high gear with the title track as the preface to the project. Priming listeners for a sonic journey, “Devastate” possesses a darker and harder electronic feel. Enlisting fellow Australian bass music maestro Blanke​, the progressive builds in “Chaos” accompany the striking grooves and blaring horn samples perfectly. The concluding track on the EP entitled “Hypnotize” emulates the more playful side of bass music, featuring Shaman​, with a rattling, lighthearted beat that showcases his technical talents from one end of the spectrum to the other. The ‘Devastate’ EP will arrive in full force as Zeke Beats announces his forthcoming North American tour. Accompanying the ‘Devastate’ EP, the Australian DJ/producer’s North American Tour will span cities from Atlanta, Georgia to Seattle, Washington.

Bringing bass to life with his analog synth wizardry, Zeke Beats is on a mission to melt faces; one of the game’s best new names, Zeke Beats blends hip-hop and grime influences with his signature analogue basslines for a distinct sound that’s dirty, crunchy and always futuristic. It’s the sort of bass that keeps dance-floors burning and sweat dripping down walls. So no surprise it’s turning heads: labels and electronic A-listers like Bassnectar​, DJ Craze​, DJ Shadow,​ Toddla T​, G Jones​ and EPROM​ have all already thrown him support. The light-speed rise of ZEKE BEATS has happened in less than two years. Since breaking through in 2016 with his Meltdown EP on Terrorhythm Records – a release Bassnectar loved so much he includes an edit of its title track in pretty much all of his sets – Zeke now looks poised
for world domination. He’s signed to Australian booking agency Poster Child and American powerhouse agency Madison House, got airplay on triple j, Rinse FM and BBC Radio, stepped up to mix for Alison Wonderland​’s ‘Radio Wonderland’ show on SiriusXM, been named one of 2016’s best breakthrough artists by inthemix, and had routine videos featured on DJ Mag, Your EDM and Run The Trap.

Zeke’s enjoyed a dream run of heavy-hitting releases. 2017 has already seen him top charts with his latest EP Dispatch hitting #1 on the iTunes electronic rankings and being added to coveted Spotify curated playlists. Skrillex​’s Nest HQ imprint dug his recent ‘Mars Attack’ VIP so much they stepped up to premiere it, while Zeds Dead​ released Zeke’s huge tune ‘Yuck’ on their label Dead Beats. He’s not done yet – a new collaboration with Eprom will be out soon. Amidst all that has been some nonstop touring: Zeke’s ticked off no less than four US tours in the last eighteen months, hitting Electric Forest, Bassrush’s Project Z and playing Shambhala two years running – this year stepping up for a surprise back-to-back set with
Eprom that Noiseporn rated the best of the entire festival. Locally he’s been tapped as the lead support for Nero​, and recently wrapped up a sold-out Australian headline tour in support of Dispatch that saw him play to audiences up to 5000 at the country’s top clubs and festivals. And Zeke’s not just your regular DJ; his love for hardware comes from his background as a
turntablist superstar, a rare talent that’s seen him rank 4th in the world in the prestigious IDA World Championships and earn the title of Australian DMC Champion, as well as being named Grandmaster Turntablist DJ Qbert’s first ever Scratch University Valedictorian.

Hot on the heels of his dance pop radio smash ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ with David Guetta featuring catchy vocals from Charli XCX and French Montana and his remix of U2’s iconic ‘Get Out Of Your Own Way,’ this new collaboration with Stanaj shows that Afrojack continues to create and innovate with unprecedented force.

Speaking about the release of ‘Bed of Roses’, Afrojack said, “I’ve been waiting for the right time to release this track and what better day than Valentine’s Day for ‘Bed of Roses’. Teaming up with Stanaj was awesome, I think we’ve created a little piece of magic together and I hope the fans agree!”

Named the #8 DJ in the world by DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll (marking his seventh consecutive year of appearing in the Top 10), Afrojack is one of the most popular dance music acts of today and most sought-after producers, having worked with everyone from Pitbull to Sting and Chris Brown, and winning a Grammy for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s ‘Revolver.’ Afrojack recently returned to Wynn, Las Vegas for his 2018 headlining residency and will perform at XS, Intrigue and Encore Beach Club throughout the year. In January 2018, Afrojack continues to not waste any time by releasing an array of diverse hits such as ‘Bad Company’ with DirtCaps, ‘Helium’ with David Guetta and Sia, and a remix of U2’s iconic ‘Get Out Of Your Own Way.”

POINT.BLANK MAKES MOMENTOUS COME BACK TO BUYGORE RECORDS WITH NEW ‘LURKING’ EP

As we continue in the pursuit of pinpointing the biggest records within the dubstep and bass music soundscape, we are excited to bring back a time honored Buygore artist that has always delivered the dubs. Hailing from Belgium, Point.Blank has routinely put out some of both Fresh Blood and Buygore Records most heralded tunes on dance floors around the globe.

Following in the steps of his previous ‘Money’ EP release, Point.Blank has never disappointed when it comes to his authentic yet intriguing sound design. Point.Blank has also put out a handful of releases on the Buygore sub-label Fresh Blood; with two original pieces of work on Fresh Blood Volume 2 entitled “Bomb” and “That Hip Hop Shit,” Point.Blank returned on Fresh Blood Volume 3 with a collaboration featuring Savage Society affiliate Definitive​ proving his loyalty to the Borgore​-lead brand.

Buygore Records is adrenalized to announce that the ‘Lurking’ EP, a five-track installment exhibiting the new sounds of the Belgium-based artist, will be one of the first releases of the year. ‘Lurking’ is set in motion with the opening track “Roll Up,” a long-awaited fan favorite that has been storming through live sets by some of the biggest names in the scene. The third track on the project entitled “Computer” begins with an amalgamation of digital sound effects, accompanied by a cataclysmic build that leads into blaring horns and heavy reverb carrying the track from drop to drop. The EP wraps up with “Tony Montana” and a VIP version as an extra added bonus; while “Tony Montana” already brings the basslines for a memorable epilogue, the VIP breathes new life into the track and has listeners at the edge of their seats already waiting for more.

One of Belgium’s most popular exports behind waffles and chocolate, Point.Blank is regarded as a pioneer of the harder more aggressive dubstep sound that has swept North America by storm. Point.Blank has long standing support from Borgore, who signed him on to Buygore Records in 2014, as well as Excision, Zomboy, Datsik, Terravita, and many more.
