Disco With That Modern Twist, Canadian Duo Fabrikate Release New Single “By My Side”

Sometimes we have those difficult weekends where we just need to power through it, but need just that right beat to keep pushing. Today we have just that track you’re looking for with a few buddies from up North known as Fabrikate, who brings us their latest release “By My Side”. By no means a household name, Fabrikate exploded on the scene after garnering success from Shazam for the remix of The Weeknd’s “The Hills”, Fabrikate is continuing on their trail of success with the release of the last album “Bodies”, which gained millions of streams and even support from major powerhouse Diplo. Clearly this duo is doing something right.

What makes Fabrikate stand out, especially on “By My Side”, is their unusual style that feels more retro than anything. Inspired heavily by the popular aspects of disco and classic R&B, “By My Side” is just another example that Disco can easily be adaptable in this new age of music. Disco with a modern twist sounds just about right. Fun fact, “By My Side” was actually on created in one day by the duo, as they were messing around with synths during the middle of a snowstorm. The best origin stories are definitely the weirder ones.

Make sure you give “By My Side” a full listen here:

THE TWO SIDES OF SUMMER: Blinders Releases New “Two Sides” EP

When it comes to making it big and successful in this music industry, you have to have an adaptable and continuously changing mindset. Nicky Romero and Protocol have taken this to heart, as we have seen in the past with rather unique acts coming out from the label. Today we have one of their newest artists signed on with the Protocol family, Blinders, who brought his latest EP Two Sides along with him. Blinders has been experimenting with his musical style for quite a while now, even gathering over a million plays for his previous release “Luminate”. Serving as his home label, Protocol has allowed Blinders plenty of creative freedom and will continue to do so.

Alright, we have doled out as much praise as we can for today, so let’s move onto this EP. Having coordinated this release in the height of summer, Blinders tries to showcase the two sides of summer with each track. The first track “Molly” is packed with feel good vibes, chill bass lines, and relaxing indie pop vocals (Thank you Cardiknox) and is the essence of chilling poolside and soaking up rays. Then we move onto the more guttural “Broken”, which is heavily influenced by electro and rock ‘n’ roll, and this serves as the dark/after hours raving throughout the night. While they are both drastically different, they are both complimentary and work together to for a solid Two Sides EP.

Make sure you give “Two Sides” a full listen below!

The Enigmatic Gunslinger Continues His Crusade With “Journeyman”

Alright, Gunslinger, we have been told that you are going to take us on the space oddyssey of a lifetime. Let’s see what you have in store. Today we are back with the latest from the every enigmatic Gunslinger, “Journeyman”. Not much is actually known about Gunslinger, except that he is considered/considers himself a “crusader for the future of electronic music.” We understand where he is coming from, as the more mainstream electronic music is becoming the more it is being incorporated in pop and other popular genres. Gunslinger is traveling to spread his message, with massive sets at both the Opulent Temple and the Oregon Eclipse.

“Journeyman” puts forth the awesome image that you would expect, as the track relies highly on ambient and space sounds to essentially have you travel through space. While the bassline and futuristic synths are what drive the track, “Journeyman” opens with a space-age guitar solo that ensnares you on that first note. To be honest, “Journeyman” sounds like a space-age track inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd. Gunslinger, whoever you are, keep crusading.

Be sure you give “Journeyman” a full listen below:
