Dutch EDM trailblazer Sub Caesar has released his sixth single, PUSH!

PUSH! (back and forth) is the 6th single released by Dutch EDM producer Sub Caesar; his filthy techno-driven floor-filler finds the perfect balance between bass-drenched aggression and seductive groove. He may have only made his debut this year, but already, his sonic style boasts the versatility and ground-breaking gravitas that labels are constantly on the hunt for.

I just wish I could have been on a dancefloor to hear that euphoric drop for the first time; Sub Caesar knows exactly to leave you gripped in his progressions.

PUSH! is now available to stream on Spotify.

HeartFace wants a taste in his hardstyle techno-pop track, Lick It.

Hedonistic tracks are often hit or miss, but HeartFace is right on the money with his infectiously salacious hardstyle techno-pop track, Lick It, which lyrically gives WAP a run for its money. Fans of LMFAO, Showtek, Pitbull and Dickheadz will want to refresh their playlists with the X-rated danceable drop. When Lick it drops in clubs, inhibition will soon fall away from the dancefloor.

Lick It takes a very different tone to HeartFace’s previous releases, but we’re stoked to see him back on the airwaves after a two-year stint. We can’t wait to hear what follows after he has set the bar so anthemically high.

Get a taste for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

The Time Is Soon: UK Electronic artist Bitvert gets his mind ready to conquer on ‘Nowism’

As he studiously works out his plan of action to do what he needs to do, Bitvert gets ready from just around the corner on his bass-heavy new electronic single that is ominously named ‘Nowism‘.

Bitvert is a well-known underground music producer and artist from East London, England. He makes that raw thumping soundscape that is late-night perfect for when you just need to take the edge off, and get all that frustrated energy out of your pulsating body.

Drawing on a DIY ethos of punk applied to nocturnal electronica and mechanical disruption, Civil Serpent was born in the warehouse subculture of East London, drawing together evil strands of pounding 4/4 techno, darkened electronic textures and stupendous sub bass frequencies that pull the head of the listener straight to the floor.” – Rough Trade Records

With a mysteriously fascinating hard nosed edge, this is a powerful song that sets the mood on the current climate in the UK, which is supremely unnerving to say the least. He layers up real warm and takes us for a fastidious journey to the outer reaches away from all the sinister cameras of the city – who watch and control – as he shows us where to start from instead.

Nowism‘ from the East London, England-based electronic music producer Bitvert, shows us a man who is on a well-thought out mission to get all his goals no matter what. He is looking away from the bright lights for now, but is on the right path and knows what to do. This is a fast-paced track with plenty of grit and desire, just like where he is from. Nothing can stop him from grabbing his elusive treasure.

Techno Victim’s techno-funk hybrid, ‘Funk It’, is the ultimate EDM playlist staple.

If you like your techno on the darker side of the tonal palette, you’ll want to immerse yourselves in Techno Victim’s (AKA Christopher Rapkin) latest single Funk It. The international EDM artist and producer weaved organic funk grooves amongst the chilling bass-driven tones; despite the experimentalism, Funk It is as easy to slip into as any of Daft Punk’s iconic hits.

The textural contrast that the elements of funk bring through the choppy staccato guitar rhythms are nothing short of ingenious. They allow Funk It to unravel as an all-consuming feat of EDM in a way that is quickly becoming with synonymous with the enigmatic producer’s sound.

You can check out Funk It for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

If you can’t relate to that after the year that we have endured, your soul may be defunct.

Hard House got harder with the release of ZacTomRob’s devilish drop ‘Mischief’

High tempo, hi-energy EDM shouldn’t be a genre description, but in the case of ZacTomRob’s ‘Mischief,’ it absolutely is. Techno-tinged drum and bass with sampled, sequenced vocal parts and a thunderous backline of programmed drums, rising bass parts, and a killer drop, this is a proper Hard House club anthem in the making.

Following up from September’s killer ‘Light That Feeling’, ‘Mischief’ is absolutely the sort of track to get people onto dance floors and lighting up clubs across the country. Mixed and mastered by the great Michael Wenz (Frankie Bones, Alpha Quadrant, The DRP), ‘Mischief’ is proper old-school EDM at its best.
