Protocol Veterans Trilane Harness Modern Progressive House in “Believe”

There isn’t anyone hotter in the Protocol roster, except the label boss himself than this duo.  Heading on back to Protocol after a previously packed weekend, we have “Believe” from Swedish producers Trilane. Since Protocol is all about promoting the fresh blood added to their roster, we are no surprise that they have expanded their recruitment pool. Between these two artists, they have been featured on many of the large labels such as Trilane being a five-time release for Protocol, along with both Revealed and Wall Recordings. Will he finally find his home within the Protocol roster? We’ll have to see what the future holds. Now official Protocol veterans, Trilane is quickly becoming engrained in the Protocol culture and roster.

AS they pump out more and more tracks under the Protocol banner, We feel like that Trilane is permanently absorbing the modern progressive house sound. Trilane’s latest addition to the catalog, “Believe”, is a perfect embodiment of this modern style. The track isn’t just uplifting with a great beat, Strand’s vocal performance is soulful and exudes pure emotion. “Believe” highlights its rising bassline and dreamlike melody is a one-two punch combo, but the track is one full package that can’t be separated. Workling flawlessly and seamlessly, “Believe” has to be our favorite Protocol-era Trilane track yet.

Make sure you check out “Believe” on Spotify below or over on YouTube!

Party Favor & EZI Diverge From Their Path, New Acoustic Version of “Be Ok”

In an industry where different versions and edits are plentiful, it takes some serious skill to release a new version of your own track and make it sound as good as the original. Kicking off coverage we are heading on over to Area 25 for an acoustic version of “Be Ok” from Party Favor. 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.

With one of the most diverse skill sets and resumes active in the industry, we had no doubt in out mind that Party Favro would knock this one out of the park. While the original version exuded a powerful and hopeful vocal performance, it was clearly overshadowed by Party Favor’s trap/future bass production. In this version however, EZI’s performance takes center stage as Party Favor strips the production down just to that of an acoustic guitar. Even the accompanying music video highlights EZI’s performance, as she is the sole focus of the entire video. As a more prominent member of the industry, we are glad to see that Party Favor is determined to showcase more rising talent.

What’s up next on the docket for Party Favor? Remixes are abounded, as a new remix of “Wait a Minute” by TroyBoi will be out soon, as well as a remix album for Layers on deck.

Make sure you check out the music video for “Be OK” on YouTube below!

Bass Producer ShockOne Drops “Til Dawn”, 2nd Single From Upcoming Album

With barely taking a moment to breathe, this artist is ready to raise the hype meter for his new album. We meandered over to Monstercat for “Til Dawn”, the second official single off of ShockOne’s upcoming album A Dark Machine. Beginning his career all the way back in 2009, ShockOne immediately made his name known to the masses as one of the top rising bass producers in the industry. ShockOne’s “Chaos Theory”, released in 2012, has been his most significant hit yet, reaching silver and gold spots on electronic charts. “Chaos Theory” completely broke genre standards, but proved that there are no barriers for ShockOne’s creativity.

I couldn’t be happier to join the Monstercat roster. It’s a brand known for pushing boundaries and a label releasing some of the most forward-thinking releases for my genre of music. It really is the perfect home for A Dark Machine and excited to have them work this record to every corner of the world alongside my long term home label Warner Music.” – ShockOne

If anything is made clear after this single, it is that the theme of A Dark Machine will be a solid dose of hard-hitting drum’n’bass blended together with just enough electro house. The track feels oddly reminiscent of 1980’s science fiction films, as we wouldn’t be surprised to find “Til Dawn” on a Blade Runner-esque soundtrack. ShockOne manipulates the listener into a musical game of cat and mouse, complete with eerie buildups and heavy gritty synth work.  Can we just say that after “Run” and “Til Dawn” that we can’t wait to hear the final LP? A Dark Machine will be released on Monstercat on August 1st, so make sure you come back for our full review.

Make sure you check out “Til Dawn” on Spotify!
