‘Legion’ is out now on Maxxximize Records. Thom Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf, as the duo are known outside of their artist alias, are big video game enthusiasts and saw the ultimate collaboration in Watch Dogs Legion. Amidst the growing unrest of a restless London, an unknown entity named Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance DedSec for coordinated bombings across London. The pulsing energy of Blasterjaxx’s Big Room record serves as a complimentary addition to the world of Watch Dogs: Legion. Drawing inspiration from the trailer and graphics of the game, the Dutch duo approached the record with an enigmatic, mysterious theme. Players who purchase Watch Dogs Legion on current consoles will receive a free next-gen upgrade to Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5. Combining Gaming with Music resulted in an entirely new way of producing” explains Blasterjaxx. In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing its downfall.

Tokyo-based artist Armstrong delivers a brand new EP on Deeplomatic Recordings!

By EDM Nations – October 29, 2020 2 0

Often rubbing shoulders and playing alongside recognised artists such as Groove Armada, Crazy P and Faze Action, it was not long until Armstrong was invited to head parties at some of the biggest venues around Sydney, and most notably holding a rotating residency on the Terrace at Home Nightclub. Sumo was released on September 25th and is available on all streaming and selling platforms. Fresh with ideas and inspiration, he has been writing and testing new material at events, including his very own successful monthly night, Neutral in Shibuya. Becoming hugely passionate for Electronic Music and DJing from an early age, he started to become established within the scene during a residency at one of the most notorious nightclubs in Sydney known as The Globe. The whole Sumo EP offers a classy take on house, as each track offers something unique and alternative for any dance floor. A rather splendid alternative to round off the record, 80’s synth sounds meets Twin Peaks to create a moody send off. Beginning the record in style, namesake song Sumo immerses the listener in atmospheric and spacey melodies, topped off with acidic lines and slurred vocals that create a dreamy trip, suitable for any dance floor. Perhaps this is most notable within his brand new dynamite release, Sumo EP. A faster paced and more progressive version of the original, the second track still features the vocal aspect and retains Armstrong’s clever influences. Follow us on socials Flipping the EP on its head, the fourth and final track offers a Deep House cut from another in-demand Australian producer, Jamie Lloyd. Following the title track is a Dub Tech remix from prolific Australian producer Jamie Stevens. The third track, or second remix, invites Deeplomatic boss Alex Ferrer to the table, offering an all-house affair with groovier cuts and melodic undertones that seamlessly roll through the speakers. Becoming recognised for his talent, Armstrong began to play at venues in European hotspots such as Ibiza and this eventually lead him to start new challenges over in Tokyo. A statement track from Armstrong, as his newly found inspiration is echoed throughout. Adapting and honing his sound, Armstrong now leans towards Leftfield House and has increasingly incorporated melodic techno touches to his impressive productions. Widely renowned for infusing soundscapes and incorporating heavy underground house influences, Armstrong often adds strong techno overtones to create a unique soundtrack that follows him around the globe.
