Today has definitely been an interesting day to be sure.
Today is the last day that we will be posting on Media in Review, the time for this website has come to a close. We have loved posting here over the last six years, but we need to move on and continue to grow. After much consideration, the time for change is now.
After months of learning about taxonomy building, data transfers, site building, etc. We are happy to announce that we are moving sites. Everything that exists here at Media in Review has been moved to our new website, Modern Neon Media. Modern Neon is just the beginning for what we have in the works and we hope that you make the move with us.
All of Media in Review’s socials have been updated, and you can find us at Http://Modern-Neon.com.
Thank you for your support over the years, and we hope you will be excited for these new changes. We will be bringing back not just more music content, but films and anime will return soon. They will even have dedicated days and shows for them in the future.
When you have this amount of “Power” in your arsenal, it could definitely be the time to use it, (Yes, we are also retiring these word games). Taking a moment to stop off over at Monstercat, we finally are checking out Eptic’s newest release his Flesh & Blood EP. Making is initial debut back in 2014 with his Like a Boss EP, Eptic made it known that he was here to stay after aforementioned EP topped Beatport’s dubstep charts for seven consecutive weeks. Since then, Eptic has released multiple successful originals and mixes adjoined with the Never Say Die and Spinnin’ rosters such as the heavy “Southside” with DJ Snake. While Eptic just debuted on Monstercat in early August with “Let It Go”, a collab with Dillon Francis, he may have found his next semi-permanent home.
“I’m excited and proud to present this new ep to you all. The whole thing has been in the works for almost a year, and it’s the most blood, sweat, and tears I’ve ever put into the musical and visual aspect of a project. I’ve field-tested all of these songs out during my shows and made so many adjustments over time to make sure everything bangs in a live setting. There are a whole lot more new music and unexpected collaborations coming, paired with a brand new merch line as well. This is the most excited I’ve been in my career so far, and I hope you are too.” – Eptic
Alright everyone, move out of the way and give room for this modern bass maestro. This brand new EP is definitely one to showcase Eptic’s range and skills with audible aesthetics, easily creating a fragmented yet intriguing soundscape for these tracks to exist in. While we already heard both “Power” and “Let It Go” through previous promotional teases, they are low in comparison to our favorite track on the EP “Violence”. Eptic uses distorted sound bytes from a news anchor report to create this initial illusion, only to be thrown into pure chaos with Eptic’s mechanical effects combined with futuristic laser sounds. “Violence” is the right amount of chaos we need in our music, and Eptic willingly satisfies that urge. Make sure you check out the rest of the Flesh & Blood EP as well as keep an eye for Eptic’s live performances near you.

When rather distinct styles like electro and trap clash in the studio, dancefloors will be set aflame. Heading on over to Area 25 we have “Gasoline”, the lastest from producers Party Favor and Nonsens. When you have the chance to work with someone like Party Favor, that is definitely not an opportunity that you turn down. With an impressive resume as a genre-bending artist and producer, Party Favor has seen plenty of glory with his multitude of original tracks such as “MDR” and “Give It To Me Twice”. Party Favor has even accomplished quite a bit as a producer for major artists like Lil Jon and ASAP Ferg, with all of his work earning him an impressive 135 million streams on Spotify.
Party Favor’s latest track, “Gasoline”, is not as innocent as it the intro makes it out to be. Party Favor’s recent hot streak with the likes of “Wasabi” and “Wait A Minute“, we know not to take one of his tracks on first listen. “Gasoline” appears to be a slow burn, keeping you complacent with a groovy instrumental beat and modified vocals to present the idea of an electro “Gasoline”. This doesn’t last long, however, as Party Favor knows exactly which knobs to twist to fit his production style. “Gasoline” quickly dissolves into a trap filled with a progressively harder drop and a bassline that evolves into a hard-hitting movement designed for you to lose your mind. While “Gasoline” may be a bit of a slow burn, it is a mere disguise to fool you.
Make sure you check out “Gasoline” on Spotify and on YouTube below!
