Bassjackers and ANG just dropped a main stage banger !

Meanwhile, Bassjackers have over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and YouTube videos reaching up to 120 million views. At the top of their game, Bassjackers continue to tear up stages worldwide and wow crowds along the way. Combining Big Room with a slight Slap Bass sound. It is the first time Bassjackers and ANG released a track together. DJ, Marlon Flohr, and producer, Ralph van Hilst, who together form Bassjackers, are perfectly in sync as a duo. This was a sign of things to come. Since then, Bassjackers have reached massive new heights in their career such as a currrent #29 position in the DJ Mag Top 100, numerous chart-topping bangers and hit collaborations with the likes of Martin Garrix, Afrojack, KSHMR, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dyro, R3hab, Snoop Dogg and Showtek, to name a few, as well as remixes for A-list artists including Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, Moby, and Ne-Yo. Their opposing personalities – Marlon being the wild one rocking each and every stage they play and Ralph the more cool and collective preferring to shine behind the scene on the producer seat, are a perfect combination for this unique one dj-one producer collaboration. The duo exploded onto the scene and in 2011 their dancefloor bomb “Mush Mush” was picked up by Tiësto and released on his label Musical Freedom. The track dominated the Beatport top 10 chart for over two months and was one of the biggest festival tracks of the year. This is a real festival banger that we will hopefully hear soon on the big stage. Follow us on socials

In celebration of ‘Tremblin’, Maximono follows up with the highly anticipated remix pack!

By EDM Nations – March 27, 2021 2 0

While I was happy how the vocal was sitting on the main chords etc, i tried adding some elements like marimbas from the original song, played a lot of little touches from synthesizers to give them that organic feel without quantizing things too much. It wasn’t easy due to big tempo difference but I think I managed to keep the high energy.“ – Satl

“My approach to remixes is that I always aim to make a totally new musical bed for the vocals. Quotes from the remixers:

“When we first heard Maximono’s original, it immediately pulled us in with its unique vibe, expressive vocals, and that sweet melody. All respectfully sitting high in their field of genres, there’s a flavour for every dancefloor withBlack V Neck providing the house fix, Santé going in deep, Nowheretobefound taking us onan electronic journey, and DNB producer Satl rounding it out with his signature liquidtouches. Very happy how this turned out and it was a pleasure working back n forth with Sebi. I love these little imperfections in music, to me that’s what gives the character to the song. “ – Nowheretobefound

Follow us on socials Went to the studio and this deep driving tune came out “ – Santé

“My idea was to somehow translate the vibe of original into drum and bass without losing the core elements of the original composition. With diversity igniting the concept of Maximono’s new Parasoul label, it made sense thatthe remixes would do just that with 4 electrifying mixes from Black V Neck, Santé,Nowheretobefound & Satl. In celebration of ‘Tremblin’ – the first single on Maximono’s new ‘Parasoul’ imprint,Maximono follows up with the highly anticipated remix pack. We took a more melodic and groovy approach to match the energy of the soaring vocals and as a welcome to warmer weather.” – Black V Neck

“When I heard the vocal the first time, I immediately knew what kind of remix I wanted to make. He approached us with an opportunity to remix the track, and we knew we had to make something special.

Renaissance signings Forgotten Notes release powerful ‘Resurrect’ EP !

The trick was to keep it cohesive though, each track may be very different, but our goal was to retain a consistent vibe throughout.”

The package is completed by another new Renaissance signing – Loew. Expect to hear more from him on the label later this year…

Follow us on socials Fresh from his breakout success with a bootleg of Leftfield’s ‘Not Forgotten’, he kick-starts his Renaissance relationship with a hair-raising take on ‘Celestial’. His interpretation is a full-on, end-of-set, atmospheric breaks stormer. We think they’re a very exciting prospect indeed. It’s important to us that we connect with our listeners and, as music is so subjective, we cast a diverse net. Whether title record ‘Resurrect’ with its powerful groove and amazingly original, tempo-switching breakdown; the deep house shimmer of ‘Celestial’ or the melodic techno ascent of ‘Radiance’, this is an EP that is as beautiful as it is varied. And you don’t forget those moments easily; when the Renaissance A&R department heard Forgotten Notes first demo early last year, they were taken by both the uniqueness of sound and quality of production. Now, intrepid Swiss duo Ron and Erhan aka Forgotten Notes return with the ‘Resurrect EP’ on Renaissance, which comprises a trilogy of tracks that further highlights their scope and ability. By adding a vocal and bringing out the track’s central piano riff he delivers something very special indeed and sets the bar for an exciting future. You can hear the time and effort that has gone into the project as the guys explain, “We deliberately did three differing tracks. In an age and industry obsessed with pigeon-holing musical genres, it’s always refreshing when something new comes along.

H3NRY THR!LL SIGNS TO ELYSIAN WITH NBLM & BIOMETRIX COLLAB ‘SUPERMAN’!

By EDM Nations – March 20, 2021 2 0

With praise coming from the likes of EDM.com, The Nocturnal Times, EDM Nations, One EDM, Fresh Music Freaks and River Beats, and DJ support from Lost Frequencies, Zonderling, Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo, Anna Lunoe, Promise Land, Wawa, Sophie Francis and more, the young talent is beginning to genuinely cement his reputation and position within the ranks of America’s next generation of dance music stars. After a wave of media acclaim for February release ‘The One’, US producer H3nry Thr!ll reverts full throttle back to his bass house roots, this time collaborating with Brit acts Biometrix (Magic Music, Lowly Palace, Black Hole) and NBLM (AftrHrs, Spinnin’, Armada) on upcoming Elysian release ‘Superman’. From the very start ‘Superman’ loiters with rude intent in the bottom ends of the production spectrum, threatening to do realistic damage to bass bins the world over. After my last 2 chill deep house releases and the massive support from channels like EDM.com, I’m excited to see how people respond to this.“

The teen producer’s profile has been on the rise over the course of 2020 but his releases since the start of 2021 have definitely seen him move things up a gear. For fans of Thr!ll’s harder, more bass-heavy work, this should tick all of the boxes. Aggressive synth sections thrust up against raucously reverberating basslines, rhythms shuddering, stuttering and spitting as Biometrix’s vocal swaggers across the topline with an arrogant confidence. “Working with Biometrix and NBLM on this record has been so much fun and such a great experience for me,” Thr!ll said. “We started this track about 6 months ago and didn’t have a particular genre in mind, but it evolved quite naturally into its bass house sound.

HOS5 delivers a massive techno hybrid !

Overall, this is quite a unique tune that I strongly suggest you give at least one play below:

Follow us on socials The track has a dark, mysterious and aggressive vibe, but somewhere along the way, on the break part, it’s pulsating with beautiful melodic synth melodies, that feel like some rays of light in a dark and massive void. This is also the case with HOS5 recent techno hybrid called “Open 91”. It’s always a pleasure to review a tune that sounds totally different than most tracks released these days, because it shows that somewhere, there are still producers that have the ambition and courage to try new approaches and discover new styles. The structure of the track makes “Open 91” flow quite nicely from start till the end, giving the listener the chance to dance, when the powerful groove perfectly combined with the raw bass line are kicking in, but also to take a dreamy break, being surrounded by superb arpeggios and layered pads.

We had a chat with DJ M@stahouz about his present and future plans!

By EDM Nations – March 14, 2021 2 0

DJ M@stahouz currently runs a house music mix show called “House Flava” that consist of a range of sub-genre house tracks which are guaranteed to make your body move. Did a lot of college parties, weddings, bar, club and fashion show events. Follow us on socials What are currently your main challenges as a DJ? I was DJ-ing a lot more Hip-Hop, Dance, Gospel, Pop, R&B/Soul and Ragga/Dancehall-Calypso. But, in college was really where I heard and saw what I could potentially become. 4. I would mix reggae/dancehall into my sets with Hip-Hop and Pop and R&B and it was refreshing and new to my audience. It was not till my 3rd or 4th gig at college did I start over packing the ballroom and gym where there were so many people on the dancefloor it almost looked like a sea of people. I have always been an eclectic person in music as far as genres: Hip- Hop, Dance, Gospel, Pop, R&B/Soul, and most importantly Ragga/Dancehall-Calypso. 8. Being able to mix different tracks while keeping musical rhythm and tempo is a skill, but more importantly, how do you mix those tracks within your sets and what tracks do you use. My influences were some of the local talent on campus and watching and hearing what mixes and tracks they were using in their sets. 3. Being able to be recognized by a label, regardless of size was a great achievement for me. It is  all about passion for me. It may be that DJs can all play the same tracks, but it is how it is presented that makes DJ-ing interesting to me. He also had several Housecharts.net topping tunes such as “Can You Feel It”, “Bangin” and several others that won Future, Tech and House 1st place positions in 2017-2019.     

2. What do you usually start with when preparing for a set? What do you consider to be the highlights in your artistic career? When did you start DJing – and what or who were your early passions and influences? Being able to mix 2-4 tracks to create a new way of listening to a song is the element of a DJ. I had a great thing going for me as far as gigs and getting my name out there for people to request me but when I moved to the Caribbean all those things kind of went away. If I passionately love a track, it’s the start of my set. It is my goal to become aware to the Global House Music Community. I had always had a musical background, 10 plus years in Classical and Marching Band, 15 plus years in gospel choir and drumming. The Reggae/Dancehall-Calypso helped me stand apart from the rest, it’s a genre that was rarely played in my community (Cleveland, Ohio). It’s an acquired taste that has millions of followers, but takes time for people to recognize your sound and be interested in it. My theory is that, if I get goosebumps in my sets I am creating then the audience will also feel that passion as well. The tracks I pick make me listen for longer than 1 min because the groove in the track is so catchy. Finding House Music was like finding water in a desert. If I had to choose DJ-ing or producing, I would choose DJ-ing over producing House Music. I compare DJ-ing to like being a chef. It personally lets me know that I am on the right path. As a DJ/ producer, his musical productions are known for having upbeat, infectious house grooves.He grew up playing several instruments and being an active participant in marching, concert and gospel bands which eventually drove him to fall in love with House and Techno music. I quickly began to realize that I could create unique sounds in new ways of hearing different tracks. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands in 2012 is where I found my home in House Music. It is the essence of a true DJ and therefore I love DJ-ing more than producing. 7. I have much respect to all House producers, but I am a very picky DJ and I believe I should be because it is what makes me different from the next DJ and what they chose to play. In 2012 I started producing more than DJ-ing. As I continued producing, I eventually got to a point where a label recognized my sound and signed some tracks and two of my EP´s in 2018-2019, Groove Foundation Recordings. My first live gig was in college. My goal is to become a recognized DJ in the House Music community and to be able to change my career path to a full time DJ. It sets the tone for me as a DJ and then the rest is just easy and comes very quick. If I cannot feel a groove or get that “goosebumps feeling” in your track, most likely it is not for me and more than likely I will pass it up. 1. My best experience as a DJ was when I was living in Cleveland, Ohio. Probably the most and only challenge as a DJ I have is creating exposure, social media and overall awareness of DJ M@stahouz. It went fairly smooth, a lot of my friends turned up because they just wanted to hear good music but since I was new to the scene, I was nothing to write home about. 6. There’s so much music out there, how do you pick the tracks you play? DJ M@stahouz was born and raised in Cleveland but currently resides in the US Virgin Islands.  A chef can create a new or old dish but in different ways by applying different ingredients. What is it about DJing, compared to, say, producing your own music, that makes it interesting for you? It can be extremely difficult to get the attention of the public to follow your music and brand as a DJ. I will continue to produce House tracks and mixes that make me feel happy and upbeat. I really want to play my sets and music across the globe and spread the contagious affect of House Music. I use this “goosebumps feeling” to transfer my passion into my sets. I am a firm believer of picking tracks that I love and fit my sound. I was no stranger to making music. The worst experience I have had as a DJ is probably just the overall lack of House Music DJ opportunities there are in the Caribbean. When was your 1st live gig, and how did it go? It was not speaking to me. What comes next for DJ M@staHouz? Had a lot of ample time to find my sound. I was looking for a new sound and just tired of all the riffraff of current generation music. When I prepare for a set I start with a track that literally gives me goosebumps. It took a while to realize what sound I really wanted to produce and DJ. Groove Foundation Recordings, a Chicago based label known for releasing chart smashing house tracks,signed DJ M@stahouz and with them he released his first EP called “Tun Up Da Ting” which included a track that won 1st place reviews on Housecharts.net and was featured on the Beatport and Traxsource top 100 charts with some of the biggest house labels in the world. But only till I moved to St. For me, House music is where I live and its not the most popular Genre like Hip-Hop or EDM. I am very, very picky with my tracks and how I chose to play them. I am not the type of DJ who will play a track because someone is paying me to promote or because it is the most popular track. I want to be able to spread more real House Music across the Caribbean. I started DJ-ing in 2006, my freshman year in college. Same as a DJ, my ingredients are my tracks and what I chose to play and what I have in my library of music. I want to spread the positive affects of house music throughout the Caribbean and across the world. I will continue to play House Music any chance I get, whether it is virtually or physically. What has been your best & worst experience as a DJ so far? There are so many other DJs out there that have the capacity to do what you do, but the most important thing is to stay true to yourself and your sound. Moving to the USVI helped me focus on House music without being constantly probed by the commercial arm of Urban music. It was refreshing and ultimately my savior from the cultural and musical differences I was experiencing moving thousands of miles away from my hometown of Cleveland all the way to St Thomas, USVI. 5.
