Carnage & Tony Junior – Michael Jordan (Original Mix)

mjcarnage

The newest addition to Carnage’s festival trap sound is ‘Michael Jordon (Original Mix) on Dim Mak Recordings. Carnage, with the help of Tony Junior, pulls different elements from hardstyle, trap, and big room electro-house to create a remarkable, one-of-a-kind, release.

In 2013, Carnage has never stopped growing: He played UMF Miami and EDC Las Vegas for the first time, achieved 1.5+ million plays on SoundCloud, and landed a Sirius XM radio show. His story is already unique in dance music culture and it’s only just beginning..

The Best 7 EDM Super-Groups

potatowilleatyou-youredm

After the post about Milo & Otis’s new track, I wanted to introduce a few super-groups that people can’t stopping talking about. 2013 has been an especially good year for this type of work because virtually all recent dance super-groups have been well accepted by fans and industry.

The super-groups featured have a few key traits in common: They dig deep to find a never-before-heard sound; usually a dance genre-hybrid or an eclectic mix of the two collaborator’s styles. These sounds get weird, but catching fans by surprise isn’t a bad thing.

Dog Blood ( Skrillex + Boys Noize)

Dog Blood goes beyond simply smashing two styles together, the off-beat, off-tone sound is it’s own thing. They share similar elements among all of there tracks, making the Dog Blood “sound” clear and recognizable. Their originals, live sets, remixes and interviews have all been popular subjects in the blogosphere.

Afroki (Afrojack + Steve Aoki)


These two announced their side project back in May with the release of the Afroki Teaser Trailer (see above.) This has been a very slow moving project, but past collaborations prove that the two work well together.

Jack U ( Skrillex + Diplo)

Fans questioned Mad Decent when they included mystery group “Jack U” on their San Diego Block Party line-up. A few tweets later and we now know what San Deign’s are in for. They’ve yet to release any tracks or live sets, as “Jack U” but they have collaborated before (above.)

Duck Sauce (Arman Van Helden + A-Trak)

Most famous for their “Barbra Streisand” release, Duck Sauce has booted up for round two. A few months ago, A-Trak Instragrammed the “Quack is Back” poster, followed by the release of “It’s You,” putting them at the forefront of the 2013 super-group scene.

Milo & Otis (Killagraham + NYMZ)

Milo & Otis is a old favorite of mine. They focus on moombahton/trap sounds, setting new standard’s for the genre. When I think I’ve heard it all, Milo & Otis reminds me of why I l first loved these genres.

Grizmatik ( Griz + Gramatik)

I’ve always been a fan of the Glitch-Hop/Soul sound, so when Grizmatik released their first track “Digital Liberation is Mad Freedom” I knew to expect the extraordinary. They have a few festival performances under their belt and recently previewed their newest creation “My People” (see above.)

Destroid (Downlink + Excision + DJ Sawka)

“Destroid” is the name of Excision, Downlink & DJ Sawka’s super-group label and their independent music label. Their first live performance (above) debuted May 31st, of this year. They SERIOUSLY push the envelope when it comes to live entertainment. If you thought dance music culture was becoming stale, think again. They’ve release alot of content including a full album and music videos.

Ultra Music Festival Europe (Croatia) – 3 Days of Live Sets

Something special happened over this weekend called Ultra Music Festival (Europe) located in beautiful Croatia. Now, if you watched the live stream, you’ll notice that the broadcast was a complete fucking mess in comparison to the Miami festival. Shitty video broadcasting is one thing, but you could at least get the sound streaming better and put a muffle the crowd.

Regardless of their broadcasting failures, the (in person) live shows were incredible, everyone from Porter Robinson to Fedde Le Grand entered the stage to bring you serious, sentimental and synchronize sounds that blew the lid off Europe’s expectations.

Check out the Live Sets below:

Kill Paris – Falling in Love Again (Original Mix)

Kill Paris, known for his romantic twists on EDM, dropped another flirtatious track entitled: ‘Falling In Love Again.” The track features a pulsing bass with smooth R&B lyrics, thanks to the vocals of Marty Rod & Alma. Kill Paris has never been shy of showing his love of producing EDM and is excellent at expressing it.

Last Winter, Kill Paris surprised the blogosphere last winter with “I Love You Lana Del ray (Where I Left My Heart),” which, in turn, shined the spotlight on him, as he went on to produce a full EP, “To a New Earth.” In my book, “Falling in Love Again” solidifies Kill Paris as a killer artist.
