Singularity

Alright, it’s time for my first post of the new year **cracks knuckles.** Being out of the loop for a few weeks had my inbox piling up with a TON of songs that took forever to get all the way through, but now I have a pretty huge stockpile of artists to do posts on and I got some serious quality coming. My pick for today is going to be Singularity. Coming out of LA, this guy has a huge range of tracks and a lot of them I’m really digging. At only 20 years old I’ve got a feeling that we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in the future. The only real background I could find on the producer was that he makes “computer noises,” so let’s dig in to the tracks.

What’s my first pick for 2013? Can you say dirty ass trap? Yes please. Trap remixes do wonders for songs I normally wouldn’t be down for. Once I listened to a trap remix of a Justin Bieber song (not knowing it was him) and I was like “damn, this is pretty sweet.” Then I found out it was a Justin Bieber song and I had to go kill myself. Anyways… The remix of Kanye West’s Clique is one of the more better done trap songs I’ve ever heard. It’s got some serious flow to it and I’ll be pumping it for awhile. Bringing it down a notch, Singularity’s remix of Seven Lions’ Days to Come, is an awesome trip into the trancey side of dubstep. The right amount of bass push to this song accentuates the trance elements perfectly. Another chill dubstep song is the remix of PeaceTreaty’s In Time which will be released on Dim Mak records (Steve Aoki’s label). Finally, the title track from the EP “Breathe” brings a good mix of awesome vocals and a heavier dubstep interlude. 2013!

Matrix & Futurebound

When Matrix & Futurebound came together as a duo it was a pretty big deal. Both having impressive solo careers, when they merged in 2007 only good things were bound to come and the group has not failed to impress. As founders of the powerhouse drum n bass label Viper Recordings, they have also seen to the success of many of today’s big names in drum n bass including ShockOne, Metrik, and Seven LionsWorking on their second album, the duo has slowly been releasing singles and from what I’ve heard, this album is going to be BIG.

Matrix & Futurebound’s  most recent single has been destroying charts since its recent release. Magnetic Eyes is a pop-y drum n bass song that I absolutely love. The remixes that have been spun off this are also equally impressive (check out TC’s trap remix if you’re interested). All I Know is another single release rocking another impressive vocal track. If the group continues to feature vocalists of this caliber, this album is not only going to be great but also impressively produced. Move On is a little chiller and does a great job of producing an atmosphere that you can bounce your head to. An equally chill but older track, Coast to Coast is also song 🙂

Seven Lions

Spanning many different genres, Seven Lions has been picking up fans from all over the EDM scene.  This has led to an uncharacteristic rise in popularity for the 24 year old producer from California and an official endorsement from the much loved Above & Beyond after winning a remix competition put on by the trance super group.  Though he initially started out doing trance, the producer has been crossing genres and has been putting out a lot of dubstep tracks – though I love that he still keeps the trance elements and influences throughout most of the songs.

The fact that he has been touring with Gemini makes perfect sense once you listen to a few of these tracks. Seven Lions’ contest winning song is an amazing rendition of You Got To Go, that stays true to Gemini’s chill/trance/love step style, though I think Seven Lions does it even better. Next up, my all time favorite song so far. Still With Me gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. This is a beautiful chill step song with some amazing vocals and just the right amount of wobble. At about 1:40 in is where I start freaking out :O You’ll probably recognize this next remix of Paul Van Dyk’s I Don’t Deserve You. It’s been awhile since I’ve heard a Paul Van Dyk song and this one brings me back to the day. Finally, two songs off of Seven Lions’ new EP “Polarize.” I like how he keeps the trance elements going in this EP but has a harder dubstep background to them than most of his other songs. Enjoy!
