“Vibe” strikes with a ferocious energy thanks to the efforts of rising producer Martron. The trap-influence perks up the ears with electric energy delivered through a hypnotic sample and technical edits. The drum-work keep the listener on their toes as the track passes through different phases of unique swagger. The first drop hits with a confident nature, yet it’s the second drop that makes the journey reach a peak with it’s quick hardstyle cut-time change that invokes a fist pumping near-involuntarily. The heater circles back to to the flow first heard at the start of the track, give a sense of completion on “Vibe.”
The solo DJ/producer based in the USA has had a gradual rise in presence over the years, showing off his evolving style through a dynamic blend of remixes and originals. The man has been around the block musically, having gained support from Nervo, NGHTMRE, and many others. The young talent has achieved well over 600K plays on Spotify and is just crossing the 200K on SoundCloud.
“Vibe” is just the latest of a large catalog Martron has to offer, if you dig this, dive into what he has on deck immediately.

The first time I was exposed to Peaches’ iconic “Fuck The Pain Away” was in an equally iconic scene from Season 5 of Letterkenny. Now, three years later, Sacha Robotti is here with a heart-pounding, tech house spin on the iconic track.

Obsessed is an understatement.

I don’t know if there’s another artist out there that goes harder than Hayden James, aka Herobust. The Atlanta native has a knack for packing a lot of punch and power in every track he releases. Herobust has garnered support from the biggest names in EDM including Diplo, Marshmello, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, and many more.
Now, he’s back with a throbbing new single rightly titled as “Lose Your Shit“, out on his imprint Busted Records. The song is laced with a energetic rap vocal paired with thundering 808’s & trap drums. It builds into a purely electrifying drop that will have you head banging instantly.
Herobust said that he wanted to make heavy music that still sounded fun. “Lose Your Shit is hard,” he explained, “but it doesn’t make your pregame feel like a satanic ritual.” This downright glorious party track successfully fuses vocal chops and deep 808 kicks with industrial metallic sounds to bless us all with the perfect ATL trap inspired bass music.

Above & Beyond tap meditative vibrations for their latest edition of Flow State, unexpectedly out today. Almost two years have passed since the original Flow State album released and now the next chapter has arrived — Flow State: Healing With Nature.
Guided by soft yet powerful vocals from Elena Brower, the ambient album opens up with intent and goes on to feature various calming sounds recorded from nature itself — “Rain,” “Wind,” “Night” and “Winter” — accentuated by delicate melodics signature of Above & Beyond.
One third of the trio, Paavo Siljamäki shares his personal experience with COVID-19 and how he made the best out of isolation:
Fortunately, I had the opportunity to travel to my forest hideout in Finland, where I could truly disconnect from the world’s happenings. I could heal in nature, away from it all. I stopped reading world news and instead of feeling disconnected, I found myself truly connected with nature, living a very simple life that felt more fulfilling each day.
I began recording the sounds of nature at different times of the day and in different weather. I found these recordings healing, inspiring and calming. Taking them to my studio, I wanted to share this feeling with the world. So, I made these meditation tools to help others connect with nature, even those of us living a more urban lifestyle.

With the city of Chicago lifting all restrictions as of June 11th, it wasn’t long before we began to see the flood gates of shows open up.
Smartbar, one of the cities premier house and techno clubs, made its return known with its surprise lineup drop at the start of this week. Tickets went on sale the moment they made the post, and it was no surprise that tall six events sold out almost immediately. Fans clamored at the hopes of getting to step foot back into this music mecca. I mean, who wouldn’t with artists like Honey Dijon, DJ Heather, Octa Octa, Eris Drew, Derrick Carter, and Michael Serafini rounding out the nights over the next two weeks.
This announcement came only hours after Lollapalooza released more than 50 afterparties for its festival weekend at the end of July. This city is in for one hell of a summer back, and no one does it quite like Chicago.

It was only a month ago that Lollapalooza was given the all clear to go ahead at near-to or full capacity, and now we are met with an announcement over 50 after-parties over the course of the festival weekend.
Fans will get to continue their rampage across the city at events like Slander at Aragon Ballroom, Brownies and Lemonade; All-Stars & Friends at Chop Shop, Elohim at Lincoln Hall and even Limp Bizkit at Metro – if that’s what you’re into.
Check out the full list of afters below and snag your tickets for them here while you can.
These initial parties may seem light on the electronic side, but that is not to say that other venues across the city won’t pick up the slack. Sound Bar, your one-stop-shop for anything trance, all the way to bass, and everything in-between made a post on their Instagram stories that they would be reopening the weekend before Lollapalooza and then serving up five official afters from that Wednesday to Sunday! So don’t fret if what’s announced isn’t your cup of tea; there is a lot more still to be served up.

In an unexpected turn of events, Tomorrowland may be forced to postpone once again.
Despite plans to fully reopen the country this summer, including large-scale events, the Belgian government has denied the festival’s permit application. Organizers describe the decision as “a sledgehammer blow.”
The possibility of Tomorrowland taking place over two weekends, August 27 – 29 and September 3 – 5, seemed promising just over a week ago. Festival organizers shared a positive outlook on the potential 2021 event and were hopeful to move forward with lifted restrictions.
However, local news sources reveal the festival’s permit has been denied due to “risks to public safety and health.” More specific reasons cited include lack of police force and concerns from advisory group GEMS.
Furthermore, “The Ministerial Decree regarding the maximum capacity at events from mid-August (75,000 people) has not yet been published. That is why mayors can legally only allow events up to 400 people for the time being.”
Spokesperson Debby Wilmsen weighs in on the decision — “We haven’t had a festival for two years, which is very hard both financially and emotionally for our entire team. We were so keen on this, and it all looked positive.”

Eleven years ago, Pendulum released their final album, Immersion. Afterward, Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen would tour the world as Knife Party as El Hornet continued the legacy of Pendulum’s live shows with raucous DJ sets. But, we always knew that the extraordinary drum & bass outfit would one day return.
Today marks the release of the group’s first major project in 11 years, the Elemental EP. Following the release of “Driver,” “Nothing For Free,” and “Come Alive,” they wrap up the EP with the release of “Louder Than Words,” their collaboration with Hybrid Minds.
Overall, Elemental does a phenomenal job of showing that Pendulum haven’t lost a step at all in this past decade, as sonic elements from Hold Your Colour, In Silico, and Immersion permeate each and every track. That being said, each track is also a clear evolution from their old sounds as they work to incorporate more advanced techniques and songwriting into their repertoire.
Listen to Elemental and their new collaboration with Hybrid Minds below.

Pretence explores his softer, melodic side with “Emotions,” out now.
We’ve heard a range of productions with brooding intensity from Pretence in the past, but nothing quite like this. “Emotions” puts forth a feelsy, atmospheric soundscape that quickly switches into a killer drop, complete with a groove-ridden, wubby bassline.
Pretence shares of the release:
This tune is quite special to me. I wanted to make something that’s different to my heavy stuff but still underlies my pretence sound. I wrote this inspired by tchami and zhu, as they both bring such energy and emotion into their productions.
“Emotions” follows up a steady stream of Pretence originals including “The Acid,” “Bloodbath,” and “Deadweight” with CABLE, delivering an unexpected change of pace. The track contains both delicate and gritty moments, maintaining the project’s dark signature.

It’s a little backward to release your debut EP following your debut album, but Ghastly has never been one to do things by the book. After releasing The Mystifying Oracle back in 2018, he’s been steadily releasing singles, but The OG EP is finally out today with four bass-tastic tracks.
Ever since 4/20, Ghastly has been taking steps towards his highly anticipated EP, The OG. Both the title track and “Blackout” have been released, but two more bass-boosted anthems join the fold for this hard hitting project.
Ghastly shifts genre for the electro-infused “Octopussy” that pairs industrial inspiration with a touch of horror. “Creep It Real” kicks things back into high gear for an energetic burst of high-octane dubstep. With festivals on their return, Ghastly’s The OG EP is stacked full of rage-ready tracks that will have crowds going their hardest!
“I wrote The OG in the middle of the pandemic as a return to having fun and being care-free again and also as an ode to my pet chameleon that had passed away because I wrote it while he was hanging out on my head and he truly was an OG.” – Ghastly
