    • Adventure Club & Jessica Audiffred Join Forces on New Single “HERO” hero-adventure-club-jessica-audiffred-oz-edm

      The Montreal-based duo and Mexico City’s dubstep powerhouse connect for a festival destroyer. Montreal-based duo Adventure Club and Mexico City native Jessica Audiffred are uniting for a festival-ready dubstep destroyer on Bassrush Records. “HERO” is a relentless rager that mixes classic reese bass builds with raucous riddim. The release marks Jessica’s fifth single on the label and follows her most recent collaboration “Dale” with Riot Ten. Primed for festival season domination, “HERO” is a weapon of track that fuses the talents of Adventure Club and Jessica Audiffred exceptionally. The revving reese basses set the tone, as breakbeat drums and pitched vocals enhance the excitement. As the tension hits its climax, the track descends into a cacophony of drilling industrial sound design, laser synths, punching percussion, and guttural low-end. The explicit out-of-breathe pre-drop vocals match the pace and intensity while distorted chants amplify the anthemic appeal. “HERO” is an impenetrable force with villainous undertones proving that, sometimes to overcome evil, you need to embrace it. Taking listeners on a rollercoaster riddled with heart-pumping highs and sinister drops, the collaboration is primed to take over the summer. Touching on the excitement of their new collab, Adventure Club says, “It’s incredibly exciting to have another release with Jessica! She’s so talented and we hope all our fans enjoy ‘HERO.’ Jessica Audiffred echoes their anticipation, stating, “The followup to our last collab, this one is a lot heavier than the last and very recognizable from our live sets. We already know you guys love it; excited to finally make it available to you all.” Adventure Club is a Grammy-nominated production duo hailing from Montreal. The pair first connected in a pop punk band before refining their vision in the electronic space. The duo have become internationally renowned for their expansive sound that ranges from festival-ready dubstep to melodic EDM. Adventure Club are hot off of their 25-stop ‘Heroes & Villains’ Tour and are gearing up for their headline show at LA Historic Park, as well as festival dates at EDC Las Vegas, Forbidden Kingdom, Beyond Wonderland at the Gorge, and Dancefestopia. Mexico’s crown jewel Jessica Audiffred has risen to the top of the ranks of the dubstep scene with her bass-heavy sound. Her music has gained support from some of the scene’s foremost tastemakers including Excision, Doctor P, Illenium, and Hekler. She is riding high off her debut headline show at Hollywood Palladium, as part of her immersive ‘Mad House’ Tour, and is sitting on a stacked run of festival dates including EDC Las Vegas, Forbidden Kingdom Festival, Beyond Wonderland at the Gorge, Bonnaroo, and Ubbi Dubbi. “HERO” is a destructive dubstep weapon that is built to take over the impending festival season.

    • Subtronics Confirms Sophomore Album “TESSERACT” subtronics-tesseract-oz-edm

      The spiritual successor to “FRACTALS” arrives on February 16th, 2024. Subtronics, the maestro of bass music, has once again embarked on a journey into the realm of unstable particles with the announcement of his highly-anticipated sophomore album, “TESSERACT.” Following the success of his debut album, “FRACTALS,” released just over two years ago, Subtronics is gearing up to unveil the next chapter in his musical odyssey. Scheduled to drop on Friday, February 16th, “TESSERACT” not only shares its name with the bass music superstar’s current tour but also promises to redefine the boundaries of his sonic universe. The year 2024 has already proven to be a whirlwind for Subtronics, who recently announced his fourth Red Rocks takeover, “Cyclops Rocks,” and unleashed his second collaboration with Rezz, titled “Black Ice.” Reflecting on “TESSERACT,” Subtronics expressed his vision for the album as a pivotal moment in his artistic evolution. “I hope [TESSERACT] leaves a long-lasting impact on the listener and the dance music community as a whole. It is truly something I can look back on in 30 years and still be proud of because I know that this is the sound I am truly passionate about, and I really gave it my everything. This album is my second child, more than two years in the making, and I poured everything I could into it.” In conjunction with the album, the team behind Cyclops Recordings has meticulously crafted a bespoke audiovisual experience, perfectly complementing the otherworldly essence of “TESSERACT.” Commenting on the album’s sonic landscape, Subtronics elaborated, “Sonically speaking, I believe this wholly represents my personality and sound as best as I can thus far, with the things I have learned over the years, in conjunction with what I have recently been inspired by. ‘TESSERACT’ is a proper sequel to my first album ‘FRACTALS,’ and in the same sense, I once again aimed to demonstrate my range in style, sound, and emotion. Some songs are meant for the dancefloor, some are meant for the car, and some are meant to serenade you to sleep. I am trying as best I can to create an immersive alternative reality with a magical yet sci-fi-esque world of energy and feeling across the entire spectrum.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Subtronics (@subtronics)

    • Maya Jane Coles drops ‘LDN’ EP under Nocturnal Sunshine alias maya-jane-coles-ldn-feature-oz-edm

      Maya Jane Coles releases the next project under her Nocturnal Sunshine alias, joining forces with mysterious rapper CHA$EY JON£S on brand-new EP ‘LDN’, out now. Growing up in west London in the mid-00s, much of Maya’s influences were within the rap and hip-hop worlds, something reflected in this latest EP, ‘LDN’ which offers fans a rarely-seen glimpse into what Maya might sound like if she hadn’t pursued a career in electronic music. Under the Nocturnal Sunshine moniker, Maya explores grittier musical themes and on ‘LDN’ has teamed up with rapper, actor (Top Boy, I May Destroy You), and childhood friend CHA$EY JON£S, to redress the balance. Having originally made music together while at school in London, ‘LDN’ represents a full circle moment for both artists. The pair previously connected on the 2019 Nocturnal Sunshine album Full Circle, on tracks such as ‘Fuck Fame’, ‘Dash’ and ‘Bandit’. A five-track release, ‘LDN’ is a slick, downbeat hip-hop record. Kicking things off, the title track immediately sets the tone, pairing smooth production with even smoother bars courtesy of Cha$ey. Continuing with this energy is ‘No Smoke’, while ‘Really Really’ brings darker, menacing energy. ‘Tralalala’ is the most maximalist track on the EP, before ‘CHA$EY’ ensures things close out on a memorable note. “It feels amazing to finally be able to share this EP with you all,” says Maya. “The Nocturnal Sunshine x CHA$EY JON£S project is something very close to my heart. I was producing hip-hop years before I ever got into electronic/club music, it was my first musical love. Not only that but Cha$ey and I used to make music together when we were 15 and we even started a rap duo back then. Years later, to be making music again with one of my best mates feels like magic. ‘LDN’ is a collection of the first tracks we made when we started working together again. We’ve been working on so much material and this is only the beginning of what’s to come.” It’s been more than ten years since British-Japanese artist Maya Jane Coles unleashed the modern house classic ‘What They Say’. She has since shifted the focus towards her Nocturnal Sunshine project, collaborating with the likes of Peaches, Miss Kittin and Young M.A. among others. Maya Jane Coles demonstrates her versatility as an artist with this slick collaborative EP released under her Nocturnal Sunshine alias.

    • Carnage’s Final Shows To Be Held at Australia’s Lunar Electric carnage-thank-you-farewell-tour-scaled-feature-oz-edm

      After a whirlwind fourteen years in the dance music industry, famed Festival Trap founder Carnage has announced his retirement at the age of 31. Carnage’s groundbreaking work in the early 2010s helped usher in a new genre called “festival trap,” a thunderous, 808-heavy twist on the saturated electro music that dominated festivals at the time. Buoyed by a thriving SoundCloud community, festival trap quickly became a movement—and Carnage was its vanguard. While dance music was his primary focus, Carnage’s brushstroke painted a far more colorful mosaic in the music community. He operated as a prolific hip-hop producer, collaborating with a myriad of the world’s top rappers, such as Mac Miller, Migos, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Young Thug and Meek Mill, among many others. Lunar Electric is set to host the final two performances from Carnage after he announced his farewell to the dance music community earlier this month. Lunar Electric will take place in Parramatta Park in Sydney on June 4, followed by Doug Jennings Park on the Gold Coast on June 11, 2022. Also on the bill with Carnage’s history-making set is a heart-thumping lineup featuring the likes of Pendulum, Darude, Sunset Bros, Tigerlily, Enschway, Dimatik, Hooligan Hefs and many more.

    • Moss Has Heart-Melting Bass On ‘Speed Dial’ In Latest Release With BRIA moss-speed-dial-oz-edm-feature-2021

      Australia’s rising star Moss returns with a heavy-hitting follow up to ‘SABRE TEETH’, releasing ‘SPEED DIAL (feat. BRIA)’ via October Records. After making a splash with his triple j Unearthed DIY Supergroup winning track, Moss picks up where ‘SABRE TEETH (feat. Genesis Owusu)’ left off, introducing the single with subtle didgeridoo vibrations before the foot is pressed down on the sonic gas pedal. The Indigenous producer’s aptitude for utilising dynamic drums and powerful bass to evoke atmospheric and emotive narratives is on full display. He teams with Brisbane-based up-and-coming singer/songwriter BRIA who’s pertinent vocals centred around the uncertainty and instability of online dating, provide the perfect hook. Moss discusses the single and the direction of his sound saying, “I’ve teamed up on this record with powerhouse singer/ songwriter BRIA and we’ve built something very special. SPEED DIAL is the sonic infusion of the ups and downs of online dating – especially when they don’t text back. This single represents a development of my sound and I can’t wait for you to hear it. All gas, no brakes.” On the narrative behind the record, BRIA said, “The idea for SPEED DIAL came out of the 2020 Brisbane COVID lockdown. After everyone was exclusively online dating, I found hookup culture was more present than ever. Moss’ dramatic production was the perfect accompaniment for my narrator’s situationship.” Brisbane talent BRIA, who amassed a sizable online following across TikTok and Instagram, recently released her debut single ‘Taking It Off’. The track has seen airplay on triple j and acclaim from Declan Byrne, Tommy Faith, Abby Butler, and Dave Ruby Howe on triple j Unearthed. Embracing femininity and sensuality within her craft, she takes influences from the likes of Charli XCX, Lorde, and Caroline Polachek. Sydney-based producer, Moss rose to prominence earlier this year after taking out the triple j Unearthed DIY Supergroup competition, with his release ‘SABRE TEETH’, before announcing his signing to October Records. Sampling the likes of Alison Wonderland, Touch Sensitive, San Cisco, Vallis Alps, and Genesis Owusu, the latter of which jumped on as a feature artist, Moss crafted a very Australian moment, yet it was his iconic didgeridoo bass drop that impressed triple j presenters and listeners alike. The track went on to become one of the most played on the station, with Moss appearing on triple j’s Friday Mix, and Mix Up as part of NAIDOC week, while the single’s momentum carried it to the top of the Australian Shazam Chart. While ‘SABRE TEETH’ showcased Moss’ talent to a wider audience, the bass producer has been honing his craft with singles such as ‘From The Start’ and ‘Shimmer’ both of which premiered on triple j and rose the triple j Unearthed Electronic charts. Having already played alongside some of the heaviest hitters in the industry – Skrillex, RL Grime, Flosstradamus, Marshmello, just to name a few – Moss has positioned himself as a producer capable of rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s best.

Igniting his career with the drum and bass classic ‘Polygon’ taken from the debut ‘ShockOne EP’ released on Viper records, ShockOne has gone from strength to strength as he has honed and refined his sound. Off the success of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Universus’ in 2013, Karl relocated to London touring the album extensively throughout Europe and the UK, all the while producing a string of singles and remixes for the likes of DJ Snake, Dillon Francis, NGHTMRE & What So Not, to name a few. Non-stop on the move, ShockOne soon shared his sophomore album ‘A Dark Machine’ which saw significant streaming success, all before launching his own record label Dark Machine Records  home to many of his own expertly crafted creations as well as a roster of forward thinking bass music artists. Now with the release of his third studio album ‘Organism Algorithm’, ShockOne continues to push the boundaries of bass. ‘Organism Algorithm’ Tracklist: 1. ShockOne – Alone 2.
