See Without Eyes – The Glitch Mob

Melomaniacs. The Glitch Mob are back. New Album. New live show. They are ready smash dance floors in a big way! “See Without Eyes” is their first full album in 4 years. It was a long time, but worth the wait! “Enter Formless” smashes in with their classic sound. This track lets you know the feel for the album. Heavy, pulling on your emotions, all the while having such beautiful melodies you just cant help but groove to. “Take Me With You” follows the same path gaining more momentum and preparing you for the next smasher “Disintegrate Slowly”. First time I heard this I raged out in my apartment. The Glitch Mob showing they still know how to make that delicious heavy Glitchy bass we have come to love from them. This is a foot stomper and you will know what I mean when you play it.

Song placement can make albums flow really nicely and  “Keep on Breathing” is perfect to sit back and relax too.  But dont get too comfy. “Come Closer” ramps it back up with this really heavy but groovin track. There will be times you’re movin like a madman and then just like that you’ll slow down to this almost catatonic pace. “I Could be Anything” is the most beautiful song on the album in my opinion. Elohim’s vocals are incredible. “Interbeing” is another really nice mellow tracks placed nicely to set up the final few songs. “How Could This Be Wrong” was the first single and it delivers in a big way! The last three tracks, are a beautiful way to mellow out and finish with. Overall this album is a must get!

They have also began their new tour with their new set up Blade 2.0 and they debuted in Edmonton this last weekend. If you have seen these guys live before you know how incredible they are live. They are true showmen and know how to make an experience out of their music. If they are passing by you with Blade 2.0 do yourself a favour and make sure you are there. The set up is amazing. Each one has their own pad screen with a mini drumkit installed. Allowing them to make it a true live experience. As you can see in the picture it looks pretty damn awesome.

Katy On A Mission – Katy B

Alright its throwback time!!

This morning I put on a Dubstep essentials playlist for my impending run. One of the songs on the playlist is this absolute amazing tune by Katy B! Hearing her incredible vocals kick the track off brings me right back to 2010. The year I became a Basshead. 2010 was a big year of change for me and I began to get deeper into the electronic scene. The bass scene blew me away and after my first show (Excision at the Starlite Room) I cannonballed into the bass!

But back to the song shall we? Do you have it on yet? Ok if you dont no worries but do it now! Ill wait :)……….ok now that its on lets get into it! If your a dub fan this really has it all. A solid build up, that wobble that just makes your body vibe and groove so fluid. Katy’s vocals bring elegance and make this a complete banger! Hopefully this takes you back to those early days friends!

Backfat – WBBL

Ohhhhh billy!!! Just in time for festival season WBBL sends out this banger to fill festival speakers all over! Seriously though. There is always a few songs that you just always hear at every festival. They’re just too good and too much fun not to play.  WBBL brings the funk, brings the bass, brings the heat, and brings the fun with this one! Hope this one gets you stoked about festival season!

I Could Be Anything – The Glitch Mob (REZZ Remix)

Friends, if you havent heard this one already get ready. REZZ just released her remix of The Glitch Mob‘s new track I Could Be Anything. The original (click <—– to listen) is beautifully done. They are always able to create such powerful songs with their trademark sound.

Cue REZZ. Right off the bat you know this has a different feel for it. REZZ is going to get us moving. Keeping it more mild than what we normally hear from the Alien Queen she is still able to make this her own combing her sound with The Glitch Mob’s. It works so well. Even The Glitch Mob notices it. Can they tour and play together please??? Imagine how INSANE THAT WOULD BE! Until then we have this amazing remix to hold us over. Enjoy Melomaniacs!

Vibe Sessions 002 – Nada Deva

This mix is packed with both classic lyrical excursions and Nu-pop remixes that flow so smoothly together you can’t help but close your eyes and smile. It has those mounting builds and big drops you crave from any mix, and its versatility and effortless transitions make it a lovely listening experience. It’s damn near impossible to keep your neck and shoulders from gyrating to the silky sounds of Edmonton based Nada Deva‘s second instalment of Vibe Sessions (check out #1 here). This dynamic DJ duo of Fransesco and Jen have been making waves in the Western Canadian music scene since 2003 and are a massive part of potentially the most underrated festival of all time – Astral Harvest. They’ve played alongside all the big boys and girls out there and continue to evolve into a provincial treasure. Do check out their wonderful beats on Soundcloud or grab your tickets to either Astral or the Rise & Shine FamJam Fundraiser in Pemberton (party with a purpose :). Don’t hesitate to get up and dance!

Peace and Love >> Keto
