Axen & Invalyd – “Marauder”

Out now on Basik Rkrds, a sister label of Sony Music Australia, is the new single from electro producers Axen and Invalyd. The track, titled “Marauder” is a gritty shard of dance floor fuel, packed with some seriously powerful synths and a thumping beat. It will get you going from the very first seconds of play, and watch out for the way that surging rhythm carries the gnarly melody along until the very end. If you like your club soundtrack with some bite, then “Marauder” is an essential purchase for you. Whether this duo works together again in the future is unclear at the moment, but Axen and Invalyd are both names we are bound to hear again this year. Pick up the single here.

Habstrakt & Megalodon – The Storm EP

Now here’s something to get excited about this week. Never Say Die present the new collaboration EP from bass behemoths Habstrakt & Megalodon, titled “The Storm”. If the duo’s previous collaborative effort, the mighty “40 Cows” left you demanding more from the pair, then this EP is sure to satisfy your craving. Four tracks deep, “The Storm” fuses weighty bass, tactical sample usage and pulsing rhythms. The vocal sample on the drop of “Yabba Dabs” will be familiar to anyone who spent too much time watching late night TV during the late 90’s/early 00’s. “Revenge” brings progressing synth riffs before closing on, for me, the EP’s highlight “Riddim101”, with its classic sound and stepping beat pattern.

“The Storm” EP is out now, head over here to get yourself a copy here.

Kid Arkade – Atlas Run

Earlier last week, Ultra Music reposted a track on their Soundcloud from an artist by the name of Kid Arkade. Entitled “Atlas Run”, the track was a meticulously produced effort to say the least, and incorporated a variety of house elements. Since the upload of the song, their social networks have reserved a hinting description: “LOADING…….” It appears to be mentioning forth some sort of bigger project in magnitude, and we can only wait to see what that is. The track will be available through Beatport on September 5th from which fans can pick up their copy. In the meanwhile, we’re left with this wondrous stream to dig our teeth into.

MUST DIE! – Hellcat

Dubstep isn’t dead. In fact, it’s so alive that we’re still here jumping up and down, partying to it. Earlier this week, US-based electronic producer, MUST DIE!, released the first single off his upcoming debut LP. Entitled “Hellcat”, the track shook listeners everywhere with a refreshing take on house music, which wasn’t MUST DIE!’s typical route of production, but great to say the least. With such a stellar amount of effort put into this piece, we can only expect to see what kind of treats await for us on his album ‘Death & Magic’, coming September 30th on OWSLA. Pre-order your copy here, and stream the track down below.
