I Want More LP - Getter

A couple days ago, Getter released his new LP, I Want More. This latest offering from Datsik’s Firepower Records is exactly something you would expect from Getter – each track is filled with so much bass you won’t know what to do with all of it.

But what makes this album so good is how it's held together by Getter incorporating different style elements making each track different from the next. This is readily apparent in the title track, "I Want More," which has a Moombahton-influenced drum beat mixed with Getter's signature wobble.

 

Other tracks that stand out are "Lose Focus" (with Datsik, The Frim, and Snak The Ripper), his remix of 12Gauge's "Clutch," and "Crack That" (with Slosh).

Overall, I Want More is an excellently-produced LP, and is one of the best Dubstep albums I’ve heard in awhile. But be warned: there's a lot of bass. And it's toxic.

Out now on Beatport!

"Too Late To Say No" - Datsik

Get the fuck up for Datsik's latest bass assault. One of the hottest pieces of Dubstep off his newest seven-track Cold Blooded EP that released today, "Too Late To Say No" has been lingering around the interwebz in shorter durations for a while. But the entire track is here today, and let me tell you it is some impressive stuff. Stepping up his game, Datsik releases this EP today alongside a heavy touring schedule with Firepower Reloaded which has had him busy exploding eardrums around North America and melting faces with his one-of-a-kind 3-D vortex stage. Bounce to this latest track and make sure you catch this master of bass disaster on his tour this Winter. Just keep your trip, and keep it fun, too early to stop and too late to say no.

Track of the Day: "Vindicate" - Excision & Datsik

Without a doubt, you can never know what to expect from a Datsik and Excision collab besides BASS. No rookies to the filthy sound, their new song "Vindicate" combines an eerie vibe with bass-filled riffs and seering laser sounds that showcase the best these Canadian Dubsteppers have to offer. The song will be featured on Datsik's upcoming Cold Blooded EP Part 1. I am personally very excited to see where Datsik chooses to take his sound on the next EP, always taking it to the next level and letting dubstep fans alike bask in the glory of his bass. Look for the download available January 8th but in the meantime, enjoy the song below.

Tomorrow in AZ: La La Land Music Festival @ PHX Convention Center

Prepare for Electronic Dance Music to take over Phoenix, Arizona this Friday, December 7th at Arizona's hugest massive of the year with La La Land Music Festival, expected to be bigger than any other valley event to date. Five years in the making, this year's La La Land is expected to have an attendance of 10,000 EDM lovers from all over the nation! After being a go-to underground event within the Valley's rave scene for years, this year it's headed for the massive new Convention Center in Downtown Phoenix, and its three larger-than-life stages will be equipped to drop the bass in The Valley like we've never heard before. Unlike past editions this one isn't a dusk-til-dawn event, but will be held from 4 PM - 12 AM for obvious legal reasons. This event's lineup is extremely diverse and fully-loaded with super talented DJs with one-of-a-kind music styles. All together, there are thirty producers playing this event, with big names such as Lucky Date, Noisecontrollers, Bro Safari, and DJ BL3ND in attendance in addition to the headliners below. Watch out for our go-to photog with the blue hair at the event, and remember to say cheese people (not just cheese).

Datsik

Every time I see Canadian Dubstep artist Datsik, I leave with my face completely melted, and I know I can expect the same result after his headlining set at La La Land!  Datsik, whose real name Troy Beetles, describes his style as "dark and dirty", and this vibe never fails to disappoint. Be sure to catch his set if you don't want to miss out on bone-rattling beats and filthy bass that will blow your brains out. We're excited to see if he switches up the style this time and drops some of those Trap productions he's been working on!

Cosmic Gate

Our expectations for German Trance duo, Cosmic Gate are set high for their headlining show at La La Land. Known for their creative and illustrious live shows, we can not wait to see what they have in store for us. With their effortless, kinetic sound that incorporates riveting melodies and synths that can captivate the crowd instantly, Cosmic Gate is sure to leave the audience enthralled and connected not only to the music, but with one another as well.

 

Mat Zo 

La La Land was lucky to land yet another talented Trance/Progressive artistEnglish Anjunabeats producer Mat Zo will be gracing the stage with his stunning visuals and can always be counted on to bring on the lasers. With his newest collaboration with Porter Robinson, our favorite new track here at EDM Lounge, "Easy," we can expect to hear new sounds of Electro, House, and Trance all included in one spectacular set. Zo is known for being the master of buildups, and his beats are sure to carry you far above the floor on an intense emotional journey of sight and sound. Don't miss him!

 

Michael Woods

Earlier on this year, Michael Woods performed beautifully here in Phoenix at Hypnotica Music Festival, and the anticipation for his set just keeps growing. This English Tech/Progressive House producer never fails to give his listeners an eargasm (or multiple!), and always brings the most unexpected synths to the table. One can only hope he brings the vibrant lasers with him to wow the crowd once again.

Basshunter

"All I've Ever Wanted" was to see Basshunter! That track is engraved in our brains forever! Let's be honest, there's not many people out there who would admit that they don't love this Swedish song-writer and producer. He's one of those artists that takes you back into a techno time machine every time you listen to his music, and what raver doesn't love to look back on all their good times and artists they used to fawn over. Truth be told, this Swede never gets old for me, and I am excited to see his wild and outrageous stage presence that I have always loved him for.

Free Download: "Swagga" - Excision & Datsik (Datsik's Trap VIP)

It looks like Datsik has been busy. After spending the past few months on tour with his Firepower R3cords label (which, by the way, was the loudest show I’ve ever attended), he decided to release the music he’d been working on in between shows. But instead of the usual bass-rattling, ear-shaking drumstep music that he’s famous for, this time he decided to slow it down a bit by incorporating some Trap. I was a bit skeptical at first, but when I heard his ‘Swagga’ remix, I was a doubter no more. By mixing his signature wobble-wobble sound with a slowed-down snare beat, Datsik has found the perfect balance between Trap and Drumstep (a lot like Flosstradamus’s mash-up of Trap and Hardstyle) that has eluded many people thus far. This remix is a nice, refreshing change of pace for Datsik, and it’ll be interesting to see how he incorporates this fast-rising genre into his future productions. Grab the free download!
