Noya always knows how to blend melodic sounds and epic bass lines for the perfect blend of soundscapes and rhythm. This tune, dubbed “Men In Black,” is nothing short of the aforementioned dynamic. Sit back, close your eyes, and fold into a state of nothingness as Noya takes you on a journey of bass and melodies.

Noya based in the Northeast is gearing up for a ton of new music through Warpaint Records and the next 12 months looks to be an onslaught of music and bass for our enjoyment.

Take A Look Inside A $300,000 Speaker

Ever wanted to know what makes a $300,000 speaker so darn expensive? Oswalds Mill Audio founder Jonathan Weiss take us into the fabrication process to find out.

To start with, nearly everything is made in-house so that OMA has “total control” over the sound. The exact process for creating each piece that goes into their speakers is detailed in the video below, in incredible detail: from the slate quarry, to the metal molds, and the final fabrication of the speaker.

There’s also a lot of technological R&D that goes into creating the perfect speaker – or as close as you can get. The components in the actual speakers are “aerospace-grade” material, using only the top-of-the-line materials and technology to amplify and recreate tonal elements to the utmost degree.

These aren’t your average home speakers by any stretch of the imagination, but considering the EDM community – more than most any other music community out there – values high definition audio, these are something of a wishlis..

STUDY: Research Finds Career In Music Could Damage Mental Health

Musicians are three times more likely to suffer from depression, according to a new academic study from Help Musicians UK.

Although there is still much to learn about depression and its potential relation to a career in music, Can Music Make You Sick? is the largest known academic study of its kind with over 2,200 participants within Britain’s music industry — and definitely shouldn’t be overlooked.

According to the study, “Poor work conditions” are largely to blame for the depression experienced in musical artists vs. the general public. Juggling gigs, money worries, and unpredictable pay are all found to be factors that contribute to both the lifestyle and potential depression.

“Social challenges” are cited as a contributing factor, as relationships with family, friends, partners, etc. often come under pressure for musicians. Findings also suggest that “sexual abuse, bullying and discrimination” within the industry can lead to depression.

Burning Man Announces Theme For 2018 Event

Burning Man began in 1986 with very humble ideas and purposes. It wasn’t until years later that the festival started booming and the organizers began incorporating themes into the annual desert trip.

The themes have generally been vague and widely applicable, such as this year’s “Radical Ritual,” or they’ve been quite specific, as in 2016’s “Da Vinci’s Workshop.” This year, Burning Man has announced a theme of “I, Robot,” based on Isaac Asimov’s popular sci-fi series from the 1950s.

As society becomes more engrossed by technology, it’s possible that the point of return may have already passed.

“When pressed to pinpoint exactly when [the machine takeover] will occur, its acolytes reply that it may have already happened — its advent will elude the grasp of slimy brains.”

Burning Man is about escapism, but its more about connecting deeply with your human side and interconnecting with other humans in an environment that breeds creativity and community while eschewing typical daily anno..

Crankdat Announces New Single With T-Pain Out Tomorrow

It’s only been about two weeks since Crankdat’s last release, a remix for Zeds Dead’s “Ratchet.”

In our recent interview with Crankdat, he mentions his blistering production speed, and we can see that he’s already set to release his new single tomorrow, October 20. What makes this single special is that it features none other than T-Pain… seriously? Awesome.

The singer/rapper notorious for making auto-tune cool again actually has a really good natural voice, so it will be interesting to see which style he employs on this new record, titled “In The Air.” But based on the previews from his Snapchat (which you can hear below) it seems to be the latter.

We’re definitely looking forward to the second original single from Crankdat, out tomorrow, “In The Air.”

If ya don’t know, now you know….. 10/20/17 ⚙️⚙️⚙️

New Mizo EP on EatBrain is Straight up Darkstep and Techstep

The most recent EatBrain release by Russian producer Mizo is out now, called Soul Reaper. Mizo is as yet little-known in the U.S. but with this EP he’s likely to turn more than a few heads stateside. EatBrain are of course known for their neurofunk, and some of the chunkiest and gnarliest neurofunk, mind, not to mention some of the most gruesome album art in the biz. With the release of Mizo’s new EP, however, there’s something that needs to be made clear: this is a darkstep and techstep album.

Neuro, yes, before it gets too controversial and hair-splitty here, there is still plenty of neurofunk in Soul Reaper. “Unreality” is a particularly fine example, as is split. Tracks like EP opener “Montage” and the title track, however, are firmly in the wheelhouse of techstep and darkstep. This is, of course, not a bad thing. For at least the past year, producers in the UK and on the continent alike have been talking about how to bring the funk back into neurofunk, with almost as many differe..

“Shelter” Anime Released One Year Ago, Crunchyroll Releases Behind The Scenes

It’s hard to believe that the impeccable “Shelter” anime was released a full year ago – it’s even harder to believe that the last “Shelter” live show was already six months ago, but that’s the world we live in.

The massive collaboration between Porter Robinson and Madeon garnered massive critical praise and boosted the fan engagement of both artists, considering people had been wanting a collaboration from them for what seems like ever.

The anime for “Shelter” came out two months after the release of the single – though at the time, it seemed like the time between the two was much longer. The project was made in collaboration with A-1 Pictures and Crunchyroll, and features the story of Rin, “a 17-year-old girl who lives her life inside of a futuristic simulation completely by herself in infinite, beautiful loneliness.”

In celebration of the anniversary, Crunchyroll has released a special behind the scenes look at the production and development of the anime.

Gammer – Stay Tonight feat. Dylan Matthew [Monstercat]

Though he may have been active in the UK hard dance scene for nearly two decades prior, 2017 has arguably been Gammer‘s biggest year yet. Not that Gammer didn’t have the talent or skill before, but his newfound ties with Monstercat this year have been absolutely massive in pushing his music from the underground to more mainstream audiences. Unlike years past, Gammer now has a huge platform to promote his music through, and he has most certainly used that as an opportunity to show off his versatility as a producer.

He’s showing no signs of slowing down, either. In recent months, Gammer has only had mere weeks in between single releases, a rate that is extremely rare for Monstercat to comply to (especially for new roster additions). Here we are, only 26 days after the release of “Let’s Get Crunk,” and Gammer is back at it once again with yet another mind-blowing banger, “Stay Tonight.”

“Stay Tonight” is most definitely one of Gammer’s more interesting tracks from his recent catalog, pa..

Martin Garrix to Khalid On Future Collab: “Let’s Do It!”

Martin Garrix and Khalid have made plans to collab — and we’re already freaking out just knowing how amazing they will sound together!

It all started with a simple tweet from a fan, but the proposed collaboration escalated very quickly, just as most things do on Twitter.

@thegreatkhalid @MartinGarrix COLLAB !!!!

— ➕GarrixIsrael✖️ (@garrix2israel) October 17, 2017

lets do it

— MARTIN GARRIX (@MartinGarrix) October 17, 2017

Though the exchange was only a few words long, a simple “COLLAB!!!!” and “hey” found its way to the superstar DJ/producer. Now, both fan bases are clinging to that hopeful and affirmative phrase from Garrix: “let’s do it.”

Khalid was in Stockholm and Garrix was in Amsterdam at the exact time of their tweets, but we’re hoping they make plans to get in the studio soon. This is the type of collab we live for!

Martin Garrix Collaboration With Matisse & Sadko, “Forever,” Out Friday

Martin Garrix just put out a song with Brooks last week, and he’s already back again with his massive collaboration with Matisse & Sadko, “Forever”! Yeah, last week’s release was under GRX, but it’s still the same man behind the computer, so it counts.

This is a collaboration that fans have definitely been waiting for, and it marks another collaboration between the two artists. Starting with “Dragon,” “Break Through The Silence,” and then “Together,” “Forever” would mark the fourth collaboration in three years for the two entities.

There’s not much to go off on the teaser from STMPD RCRDS, but there’s no doubt that the Garrix hoard will go crazy when it drops on Friday.

We're so excited! #FOREVER releasing this Friday! @MartinGarrix @MatisseSadko
