Brilliant Producer Throttle Drops “Japan”, an Introspective on the Feeling of Home.

There are wunderkinder in every form throughout the ages, and we just happen to have one active now . While out vacationing we stopped by Monstercat for “Japan”, Throttle’s 2nd single off his upcoming album. Throttle has changed and grown since his 14-year-old bedroom producer days.  Throttle has collaborated with high profile artists such as Galantis and Oliver Heldens, as well as officially remixing Ed Sheeran and performing at Tomorrowland, even before he was legally allowed to drink. Throttle has numerous production, remix, and original credits earning him home at Universal, Warner Music, Spinnin’ Records, and PRMD. He currently rakes in about 200 million Spotify streams on a monthly basis, so he’s kind of a big deal.

Following his first Monstercat track in six years “Dreamer”, this track gives us a bit of a toned-down side of Throttle. Serving as an introspective, “Japan” describes the feeling of home and how the loss of that feeling can provide some clarity. The longing of a familiar place, whether it is a home or within the arms of a loved one, is a universal feeling and Throttle’s lyrics express that. Throttle injects an almost fragile melody and a gentle drop that will easily touch your heart and caress the negativity that exists inside. “Japan” will fill listeners with hope and calm them down when life gets rough. Throttle we can’t wait for the rest of your EP, don’t keep us waiting.

It’s No Longer An “Emergency”, But Sludge Is Ready to Strike Back and “Crush ‘Em”

Our next artist may very well be the leader of the next musical uprising, crushing their opponents under their heel. On our weekly stop by Heavyweight Records, we have  Sludge’s latest dubstep smash “Crush ‘Em”. After Sludge’s initial debut track “Blacksmith”, we were eager for what he would release next. Heavyweight has been a home for a more unique and darker selection of artists since its founding in 2017, focusing primarily on heavy bass and dark hip-hop. With a lineup of misfits including Gommi, Timmy Trumpet, GRAVEDGR, and now Sludge, we can’t wait to be made uncomfortable by whatever they put out next.

If Heavyweight Records has any hole to fill, it is in desperate need of more industrial music (totally) and Sludge is here to fit right in. Quickly becoming one of the up and comers in today’s scene, Sludge is trying to stand out from the crowd with his blend of dubstep, industrial, and glitch sound bites. Definitely an appeal to the thrash and headbangers in the crowd, Sludge utilizes mechanical effects to create an illusion that you are being made in a factory. The sawing synths only finalize this illusion, crafting a filthy machine-like experience to satisfy the average bass head.

Brand New Debut, Bass Producer Riot Ten Finally Drops “Hype or Die: Nightmares” Debut Album

After weeks of teasing and EP after EP, his debut album has finally dropped. Starting our journey off with a trip to Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, we are ready to receive Riot Ten’s official debut album Hype or Die: Nightmares. A proud Lonestar citizen, Riot Ten brings an interesting EP to the table. Riot Ten is best known for his breakout single “Rail Breaker”, which thrived in Beatport’s Dubstep Top Ten for almost six months, still retaining plenty of buzz and continued streams over two years later. Riot Ten’s “F**K It”, was even performed as an introduction song during performances by The Chainsmokers.

“This album is literally who I am as a musician. It means everything to me. I’ve put out countless EP’s over the last 3 years, way too many singles to even count, so to finally deliver a full-length album is a defining moment for my career and growth as an artist. This album will showcase my roots, as well as my energy, and I can’t wait to share it with the world.” – Riot Ten

While Riot Ten has had a number of EPs to show off his musical stylings, we haven’t received something like this. Riot Ten takes full advantage of this larger playground, stretching the boundaries of bass music to the very limit as he approaches from every angle. To assist in his exploration, Hype or Die: Nightmares features a few of the hottest rap and dance producers in the industry including YDJ, Atarii, and Whokilledkenny. Listeners should brace themselves for a wild ride, as Riot Ten has no safety nets in place for you.  In celebration of the album’s release, Riot Ten has officially gone on the road for his Hype or Die tour, bringing high tier bass music to cities all across North America well into 2020.
