Deadmau5′ new, double album showcases much more finesse and maturity than his past releases. His usual house bangers are dark, textured. Meanwhile, much of the second disc feels like it was inspired by some in-depth listens to a film score or two.
Previously reviewed beatmusic producer Sadisc drops a new EP, which is essentially a few odds and ends surrounding a massive, 20-minute monster of a track. The song is titled “Cells,” and it’s really a test of Sadsic’s abilities as a composer, weaving a group of incredibly varied instrumentals and grooves together into one pretty cohesive piece.

Next month, French techno musician Gesaffelstein will be dropping his long-awaited debut album, Aleph. In the meantime, check out his artsy and unsettling video for lead single “Pursuit,” a song that superbly showcases his decidedly aggressive brand of EDM.

Check out a new track from experimental electronic musician Brian Leeds, a.k.a. Huerco S. “Prinzif” is taken from his upcoming LP Colonial Patterns and is an intriguing piece of EDM, with its multi-phased composition coming across as quite grand, even exquisite, despite its fading and crackling analog esthetic.
Colonial Patterns will be released on September 24 via Software Recording Co. It’s now available to stream in full here: https://soundcloud.com/dazedandconfused/sets/huerco-s-colonial-patterns
One of this year’s biggest bangers gets some pretty cool visuals thanks for director Nabil. Not much else to say other than I hope this successful single leads to more collaborations from Baauer and Just Blaze in the future. Check a review for “Harlem Shake” here.
On Settle, the fresh electronic music duo known as Disclosure brings a series of house and garage-inspired dance numbers that groove excitingly. Some of the vocal guests are pretty spectacular as well. Even if you’re not nutty about dance music, give it a try.
