Track of the Day: "Taito" - Mord Fustang

Mord Fustang is in my top artists for his ability to create a style of House entirely his own, while showing off his glitch and dubstep production skills. While Electro House certainly comes closest, it is impossible to tie Mord down to one genre. The few times I've seen him spin, he hasn't disappointed in the slightest - he's overachieved. Both his recent opening performance for Dirty South on the City of Dreams tour, and his Electric Zoo set I got to enjoy on my birthday contained this latest release. The record has been a success in the Estonian's mixes and I've seen it set off crowds both times I've heard him play it. Taito" begins with a series of hypnotizing synths that draw you in for an anxious, snare driven build. The drop - raw euphoric Fustang led by melodic synths. Via the Plasmapool imprint, to which Fustang is a regular contributor, "Taito" is sure to be a key element of Mord's sets for long while, so be sure to download it now.

Review: Dirty South @ Roseland Ballroom NYC

I've been to a ton of EDM shows over the past few years, but still something amazed me about this past Saturday when Dirty South took over Roseland Ballroom on his City of Dreams tour. With Gregori Klosman and Mord Fustang accompanying, the trio mesmerized the New York City crowd along with stunning lights and aerial acrobatics until the early morning.

After a stellar set from Klosman, fast-rising Electro-glitcher Mord Fustang took to the decks of the Times Square venue as more and more EDM faithful stormed the Ballroom. His unmistakable style paired perfectly with the bass-hungry crowd, definitely setting the energy high for DS to follow. Popular original tracks "Lick the Rainbow," "The Electric Dream," and "Champloo" had the crowd jumping, as did his epic remix of "Gold" from Fussy Boy.  If you didn’t know Mord Fustang before Saturday, you left a fan.

A few ticks off 1:00 A.M. Dragan Roganović, known to most of us as Dirty South, ascended behind the turntables and sought to capture the minds of New York.  Playing the same stage that has seen EDM greats Swedish House Mafia and Deadmau5, Dirty South had to do something special that night to amaze the crowd. And he did. Abandoning his somewhat predictable set style, Dragan gave the Tri-State crowd everything he had to offer, transforming the City that Never Sleeps into a City of Dreams.

From the minute the opening notes of "Walking Alone" marked the start of his set, Dirty South left no doubt as to who owned the moment. Dragan’s set showed familiar bangers mixed in technically impressive and unique ways. Exhibit A: "Greyhound" (an iconic EDM track) mixed with his own remix of Miike Snow’s "Devil’s Work", one of my favorite DS tracks, a mix that set the crowd on fire.

Preview: Dirty South @ Roseland Ballroom NYC

Grammy-nominated producer Dirty South will be answering the beckons of his fans on October 20th and making a grand appearance at the legendary Roseland Ballroom in NYC, a metropolis considered to be the "City of Dreams" among today’s top talent. The man’s phenomenal reputation speaks for itself, but accompanying him on his tour stop are up-and-comers Mord Fustang and Gregori Klosman.

Fustang’s claim to fame and successful establishment of his imprint Plasmapool has been attributed to his very uplifting and distinct brand of Electro House, demonstrated in works like his "Lick the Rainbow" single and "Welcome To the Future" EP. Klosman is similarly very much on the rise, having worked with major artists on the forefront of the Dirty Dutch movement like Chuckieand released a track entitled “Minibar” on the Bingo Players’ Hysteria imprint.

This will be only one momentous stop on the Serb’s biggest North American tour to date, at such an iconic venue nonetheless. DS hasn't spun among the big city masses for a while now so you want to make sure to catch him on this historical occasion, as his NYC presence alongside formidable support like Mord and Gregori will have the makings to amount to one of his most unforgettable shows to date.

Track of the Day: "Champloo" - Mord Fustang

After killing it at Electric Zoo, Mord Fustang is back with "Champloo." The ever versatile MF strays from his typical Electro House production, shown in "Lick the Rainbow" and "The Electric Dream," and shows off his glitch hop skills. Using tough drums and trippin glitches, "Champloo" is a banger. Be sure to check out his Electric Zoo set too.

Review: GET LOUD! Music Festival, Washington D.C.

I celebrated 4/20 at the DUBTRO presents GET LOUD! Music Festival, at the Warehouse Loft in DC. The venue was sick, with a huge outdoor stage and 4 indoor stages featuring all different types of sounds. My favorite acts of the night were FIGURE and DC Native, Chooky.

A regular name in the realms of dubstep and drumstep, FIGURE held down the outdoor stage. Spinning original tracks such as "Cut Throat" and his latest tune "The Brink," which he released last weekend for free, FIGURE threw down a hard set which definitely did not go unnoticed. At the end of his performance, FIGURE dropped a moombahton track which he told the audience he had just finished; keep your eyes peeled for it, because it was dirty and massive! This insanely talented heavy bass producer is a must-see live!

Up-and-coming Chooky took one of the indoor stages by storm. Competing for the same time-slot as Mord Fustang, he was able to maintain and command a room full of fans. His transitioning from moombahton originals and remixes to electro-house, and closing out with dubstep kept the crowd dancing. He included a live vocal performance by Carly Burns, "Good as Gold" and 'Shapeshifter" which are set to be released by Subdrive this summer. I spoke with Chooky, who said he has a lot of dubstep/electro house tracks in the works. Be on the lookout for these, and download his tracks for free on Soundcloud.
