  On the weekly hunt for new music, a new album crossed my path that I would consider the definition of a vibe. Top to bottom, sixteen, the debut album from the uber talented Pluko is like a daydream while you’re wide awake. Putting on a masterclass of genre blending and non-genre-conforming, Pluko really knocked […]

Welcome to Excision Park, where no mere mortal is safe. “E-X-C-I-S-I-O-N”, Excision reminds us exactly who he is and what he does on the opening track of his newest album “Apex”. Arguably his best work yet, Excision brings his signature sound through various waves in this epic collection of 14 thoroughbred heaters. Once “Gold” featuring […]

Earthquakes are an interesting (and yes dangerous) natural phenomenon. They strike unknowingly and unexpectedly, and literally shake the earth changing the core landscapes that we know. Now, I do not feel using natural disasters as analogies is always the best idea, but truly it was my first thought and reaction to hearing Bloom, the new […]

If you’re looking for a top-notch on-the-rise vocalist, Emilie Brandt is who you need to look up. Her voice is dynamic and wondrous, and her album “Freeform” is quite telling of that.

In simplest terms, REZZ is everything we need in EDM right now. She’s completely unique, stunningly innovative, and the embodiment of the Everyman/Everywoman in the entire scene. She’s relatable to so many because so many look at her us one of them. She’s a fan who loves the music and takes wholesome pride in not […]

Virtual Self, the new project from the ever-evolving Porter Robinson, has been lighting the music world on fire since it was truly introduced to us this past year. This project is a far cry from anything we heard in the past from Robinson and has breathed some incredibly fresh air both into his musical collection […]

The anticipation has been palpable for the full unveiling of NOVA, the new album from RL Grime. Release after release dating all the way back to the high-energy “Reims” has created quite the allure for an unreleased album; each new release predominantly different from the last but all equally fantastic. Alas, the moment has finally […]

Do you remember how in the first Thor movie, his hammer came crashing to Earth causing a sonic boom that echoed through the local city and a national up-roaring ruckus catching the attention of the S.H.I.E.L.D.? Now picture that (minus the feds) in music form. I give you, 1788-L. Thor’s hammer plummeted to Earth unexpectedly […]

I’ve been out of the festival game for a little bit now.
