The road to Actual Life 3 from Fred again.. is getting shorter and shorter, and the second single from the project just dropped. “Bleu (better with time)” samples “You’re Mines Still” by Yung Bleu featuring Drake.

So far, the singles from AL3 have been good, but not great. They sound quintessentially like Fred again.. but are missing the verve and vigor of AL2. Regardless, we’re still going to have this on repeat as we see him this weekend at Portola in San Francisco and next week in Los Angeles.

Listen below!

Across ten albums in the past decade, GRiZ has remained exceptionally consistent and progressive with his musicality, and it remains true with his latest work, Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 4. The last installment of the series came out in 2020 and returns now with the same vibrant and melodic style.

Over the course of nine new tracks, and once again inviting ProbCause back, along with Chrishira Perrier, it’s not difficult to imagine taking an evening drive or bike ride toward the setting sun and just letting your worries pass you by.

Regarding the album, GRiZ said, “I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold. ‘Chasing The Golden Hour’ is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form.”

EGZOD has an interesting twist to the way he produces music. From even his earliest projects like “Talisman” to more recent projects like “Royalty”, the Portuguese-French producer and DJ has always had a knack for making his tracks sound bigger than they appear. Through auspicious creativity and dramatic flair, EGZOD’s music has a way to captivate listeners with thunderous drums, supernatural synths, and surprise elements from one track to the next. That work ethic is exemplified on his latest single “The Way Out” featuring Bertie Scott.

The song starts with a distant horn that sounds like the intro to an epic story. Bertie Scott chimes in with this whispery-singing that sets a calm tone to this otherwise anthemically-building song. The synths on this future-bass, melodic dubstep drop are stacked like a thick wall of euphoria while the drums pound like shots in the dark. On the second go around, EGZOD’s drop takes a hyper-house beat and goes in while the synths fortify their captivating soundscape. If any of EGZOD’s song were to make it to the legendary Spinnin’ Records, I’m ecstatic that it’s this one.

Make sure to take a listen to “The Way Out” via Spinnin’ Records.

Vetted Artist Facading is here with another powerful banger. The DJ and music producer virtuoso is ready to continue his mission of conquering the music world with yet another certified hit “Tonight

This track is a perfect mix of EDM and Drum n’ Bass showcasing the artists signature flavour that will surely make everyone who listens to it move.

10 Times The Sophomore Album Was Better Than The First

10 Times The Sophomore Album Was Better Than The First

The “sophomore slump” is a well documented phenomenon in which a second effort fails to live up to the relatively high standards of the first effort. Common examples include schooling, athletics, television, or films and video games. Of course, it also applies to music wherein a hit debut album is followed by a second that can’t manage to live up to the first.

Below are ten examples of EDM albums where the second was better than the first — not necessarily a “sophomore slump,” per se, as these albums more than exceeded their predecessors.

Modestep – London Road

Fans were excited for Modestep’s debut album, Evolution Theory, in 2013 following their breakout hits “Show Me A Sign” and “Sunlight.” But, for as timeless as those singles are, the album as a whole doesn’t really stand up as it did almost a decade ago.

Then, they released London Road, which we named our #7 album of the year. Far more gritty and rock-leaning, the album did away with the more pop sound of the previous album and leaned into collaborations with Teddy Killerz, Culprate, FuntCase, and Trolley Snatcha, as well as metal with Skindred and grime with a huge collab featuring Rude Kid, Big Narstie, Dialect, Discarda, Flowdan, Frisco, and Layz.

As a whole, the project blew us away and we still repeat it to this day.

Odesza – In Bloom

Odesza’s first album was forgettable enough that when A Moment Apart came out, we erroneously called it their second album. It’s not that Summer’s Gone is a bad album. It’s more accurate to say that most fans today likely discovered them from their sophomore album, 2014’s In Return.

Almost every song on the album is a hit, and each is more powerful with those surrounding it. Though, listening to “Say My Name,” “White Lies,” or “It’s Only” on their own still conjure up equal doses of nostalgia and awe.

Daft Punk – Discovery

Daft Punk came out with their debut album, Homework, in 1997, long before most of today’s newer EDM fans were even born. (Let that sink in.) Singles like “Da Funk” and “Around The World” brought attention to the name, but it wasn’t until Discovery four years later that they truly cemented their status as legends.

“One More Time” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger,” in particular, were so popular they made it to radio stations in the US which typically catered to rock, alt, and pop genres. The latter was sampled by Kanye. To say that Homework is better by any stretch of the imagination, though it was their important debut, would be a lie.

Flume – Skin

Our first of three more controversial choices on this list, Skin is better than Flume.

The debut album from the Australian future bass pioneer has an incredible stranglehold on fans with singles like “What You Need,” “Holdin On,” and “Sleepless.” But the album came out in 2012, a couple years before “future bass” was even a thing, and it’s reflected in the more disparate organization and songwriting on the album.

On the other hand, Skin, even leaning as far into pop as it is, is a far more cohesive album. Bringing on plenty of vocalists to tie themes together helped the album land multiple Billboard placements and will still be one of Flume’s strongest projects he’s released.

Baauer – PLANET’S MAD

Baauer’s approach to his albums is fascinating. With Aa, he traveled to Glasgow, Japan and the United Arab Emirates to record and produce the project, giving it an international sound and appeal. With PLANET’S MAD, he took his focus outward, and imagined what a scenario in which our planet was wholly destroyed.

To be honest, this one is truly a matter of taste. Both albums present in radically different sonic motifs, but PLANET’S MAD is by far a more experimental album and one in which you can tell that Baauer really pushed himself sonically and professionally.

ZHU – RINGOS DESERT

When ZHU released GENERATIONWHY in 2016, he hadn’t yet removed the veil on his project. He still performed behind a translucent screen and wore the staple borsalino, but with a veil in front of his face. To that effect, it almost felt like we weren’t getting the true artist when the album was released.

Jump forward two years and ZHU had grown as an artist and as a project. RINGOS DESERT was a brilliant display of progress musically, with tracks like “Burn Babylon,” “Provacateur,” and “Desert Woman” leading the charge.

RL Grime – Nova

Our second controversial choice — Nova from RL Grime. When consulting a friend about this list before publishing, his response was, “You’re smoking crack.” I’ve never tried crack, so I don’t know what he’s talking about, but I can recognize that this choice could be crazy.

Though VOID is an absolutely iconic album for so many reasons, like so many of the past examples, Nova really exemplified a development in his sound and style that resonated with fans and critics.

Zedd – True Colors

Wrapping up our controversial threesome, True Colors by Zedd is just better than Clarity and if you don’t agree then you’re blinded by nostalgia. Opposite to Modestep, Zedd began with a more gritty electrohouse sound and nosedived straight into pop with his second album, but by that time, he had perfected it. He had made the genre his own and incorporated elements of pop into his own unique production and the result was nothing short of breathtaking. His original True Colors festival sets remain some of our favorite to listen to on boring days when we need something to pick us up.

deadmau5 – Random Album Title

Random Album Title is almost a “gimme” in this situation, much like Odesza’s In Bloom. The album followed his debut, Vexillology, released in 2006. The classic deadmau5 sound got him some festival gigs and the like, but Random Album Title made him a household name and brought the iconic red mau5head to his sets for years.

Feed Me – Calamari Tuesday

Eschewing his original moniker of Spor, Feed Me burst onto the scene in the early 2010s with Feed Me’s Big Adventure, a raucous display of electrohouse and bass that shook EDM with a green, impish character at the forefront. “Green Bottle” and “Cloudburn” were on repeat in clubs for months, but as a cohesive project, Calamari Tuesday takes the cake.

Some consider FMBA an EP, despite it having 10 tracks, just by the nature of its release. So this could be the only example where the sophomore slump actually hits (with High Street Creeps six years later), but for the purpose of this article, we’re choosing to view FMBA as an album. And in that case, Calamari Tuesday presents as a wholly more complete and visionary release and example of what Feed Me was at the time.

SLANDER recite a cosmic love story on debut album “THRIVE” out today

Just two weeks after their frequent collaborator and contemporary NGHTMRE released his debut album, SLANDER are now rolling out with their own, THRIVE. Featuring ten tracks with five previously released singles, including “Love Is Gone,” released in 2019, the album apparently tells a cosmic love story.

“In the future, this astronaut is searching for a place to start life again, but he has a love back on earth in the past,” notes Derek Andersen. “The name THRIVE sets the tone as it reflects the spaceman’s journey to make the human race thrive again. During the journey, he experiences relationship flashbacks of his memories on earth as he gets farther and farther away from the home. You’re essentially hearing all of this.”

That certainly helps to make sense of the album cover now.

“An album has been a long time coming for us,” adds Scott Land. “We were never stuck in one place long enough to make ten songs with a singular vibe though. It got to the point where the pandemic happened, and it was almost the perfect timing. We didn’t have any shows, and we had the space for a full body of work. We’ve known each other for twelve years, always DJ’ed together, and shared similar tastes in music. We got to have a bit of fun now.”

When you speak about legends in electronic music, many people will gravitate toward Daft Punk, Justice, Carl Cox, Kaskade, even Swedish House Mafia. None of these are wrong answers, but one that’s often overlooked in the general discourse is Andy C.

Active since the early ’90s, he predates many of the more popular artists by today’s standards. But ask any drum & bass DJ who their top 3 are, and he’ll be in there 99% of the time. Though he doesn’t put out a ton of music, with only a handful in the past decade, his DJing skills are undeniable, often going for 3-6 hours in his sets without breaking a sweat.

Now, Andy C has announced his biggest ever headline event, Andy C presents Alive 2.0, in London at The O2 Arena on April 7, 2023. A brand-new show with a 5 hour DJ set from the man himself, this marks the first time a DJ-led gig has taken over the prestigious venue. This will also be the biggest indoor drum & bass event the UK has ever seen.

‘Alive 2.0’ is a new vision of Andy’s ground-breaking visual spectacle where he takes over the controls of the visual elements of his set and remixes the show live. The production includes brand new Alive 2.0 set design, bespoke visuals and light show – all whilst Andy plays a special 5 hour set.

Sign-up for access to pre-sale tickets opens today, with pre-sale tickets available from September 28 (artist and O2) at 10am, and September 29 (Live Nation and venue) at 10am. Any remaining tickets will then go on general sale at 10am on September 30. (All times are GMT.) Fans can sign-up via: www.andyc.london.

This past weekend, Gordo, pka Carnage, played a headline set at Ministry of Sound and decided to keep going past his allotted set time, cutting the sets of two DJs after him. After Waze shared his experience from the set on Twitter, without mentioning Gordo by name initially, it didn’t take long for social media to put two and two together.

Yesterday afternoon, Gordo released a statement explaining his side of the story, stating that he’s been doing sets ranging from “3 hours to 10 hours to give my fans the best show experience possible.” He wrote that the promoters and management told him that his set time was flexible and “there would be a closer on stand by if I wanted to end early.”

From the statements made by Waze and Essel, this was not communicated to them in the same fashion

Gordo offered to add the two of them to his future shows, though neither artist has yet to publicly take him up on his offer.

seems like we are just falling to pieces.”

Jamie xx, as transient as his releases are, just released his second single of the year today, “KIL DEM.” In fact, since his album In Colour in 2015, he’s only released three other original tracks, as well as one remix, one “live remix,” and a club verison of “SeeSaw” from the album.

The new track today makes use of his characteristic minimal and melodic production, combining catchy looped and chopped vocals with a simple melody and rhythm that is an immediate earworm — but more importantly, perhaps, the minimal production leaves it ripe for remixes to fill in the gaps. Not that they need to be filled in the first place.

You can catch Jamie xx live this weekend at Forest Hills Stadium in New York and at Portola Festival in San Francisco, then the Hollywood Bowl at the end of the month.

Swedish House Mafia has been getting a lot of flak recently for their cancelled tour shows, and even some residual hate for their recent IKEA collaboration (though, not as much). Still, their force as icons in electronic music is nothing to take lightly. Having just released their new album Paradise Again earlier this year, they’ve already dropped a new collaboration with Fred again.. and now have their sights set on the pop world once again with an apparent Alicia Keys collaboration.

The new song is a cover of “Finally” by Kings of Tomorrow featuring Julie McKnight, originally released in 2000 on Defected Records. Originally, the song is quite minimalistic with rolling hi-hats and McKnight’s gospel-inspired vocals crooning atop the sparse piano notes. Now updated for the main stage, SHM and Alicia Keys have transformed one of house music’s classic records into something fit for the main stage. Whether that will be appreciated by the OGs is yet to be seen.
