MALAA & DOMBRESKY COLLABORATE ON ‘HOSTYL’ OUT NOW ON CONFESSION

MALAA & DOMBRESKY COLLABORATE ON ‘HOSTYL’ OUT NOW ON CONFESSION

 Untitled.png

Having both released massive tracks on Tchami’s Confession label independently, house heavyweights Malaa and Dombresky join forces for the first time to deliver the dark, deep and melodic bass-house track ‘HOSTYL’.

LISTEN: MALAA & DOMBRESKY – ‘HOSTYL’

Dombresky is no stranger to Confession, with his label debut in 2015 with ‘Wait’ and tying off 2016 with a massively successful release of ‘Utopia’. Meanwhile, Malaa has released on Confession since its’ conception, with his Spring release of the ‘Illegal Mixtape’ shaping the sound of both Confession as a whole while refining his own sound as a house producer.

Incorporating both of their signature styles, ‘HOSTYL’ blends both Malaa’s tech-house and minimal elements utilized as of late with Dombresky’s hard hitting, dark bass-house swings and chops. Commencing with a hypnotic lead, melodic build up then breaking down to dark swinging chops, ‘HOSTYL’ incorporates the signature Confession house sound with G-House and Bass house elements coined by both producers. The two artists signature styles are both explored, challenged and complimented in this track, coming out triumphantly as a synchronized, dark, high impact track to tie off a successful summer season for both Malaa and Dombresky.

Having previously released the initial Saint Thug EP on Confession to rapturous applause, Quebec born ANGELZ returns to the prodigious label to release Saint Thug II now available on all digital service providers.

STREAM & PURCHASE: ANGELZ – SAINT THUG II EP

This Def Jam Records producer turned G-house aficionado has truly been making a name for himself ever since he debuted on Confession. Consistently pushing out a frenzy of tracks over the past couple months and now releasing yet another intense slice of dance music on Tchami’s label, ANGELZ’s 3-track Saint Thug II EP continues to push the envelope in quality and innovation.

Kicking off the EP, ‘So Fly’ features the renowned Kaleem Taylor on vocals atop low frequency bass hits and tumbling percussion before diving into a frenetic drop riddled with swirling sirens, vocal cuts and a gritty melody to drive the track home. The follow up track ’98 J.Lo’ arrives in true G-house fashion seamlessly blending rap verses amidst high-pitched synths and staccato kicks. Upholding the trend of pairing rap lyrics to his tracks, ANGELZ also linked up with SLATIN and Hanz Gable to effortlessly round out the EP. Filled with a catchy hook and a funky melody, ‘Supafly’ serves as the penultimate record showcasing ANGELZ commitment to quality and production value.

Crooked Colours Release Debut Album ‘Vera’

CROOKED COLOURS RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ‘VERA’

Crooked Colours Vera Album Artwork.jpg

After being cooped up in a studio for 18 months, Aussie trio, Crooked Colours, are ready to return to centre stage with their debut 10-track album, ‘Vera’ – released via Sweat It Out. A fusion of indie and electronica, the album comes as a breath of fresh air in a saturated industry, and with it, Crooked Colours make a strong case for being one of the hottest rising acts in electronic music today.

LISTEN: ‘CROOKED COLOURS – VERA’

Having released the first track, ‘Flow’, to great fanfare earlier this year, which went on to receive spins from Triple J and Radio 1 as well as hitting the #1 spot on Hype Machine, their follow up ‘I Hope You Get It’ received similar critical acclaim. The full album ‘Vera’ is out now.

‘Flow’ begins proceedings, and sets the tone for the rest of the album; clean guitar licks, percussive drum sequences, and lead-singer Phil’s sultry vocals that draw the listener in further with every verse. This electric mixture carries through the album, but Crooked Colours ensure to diversify each track so that the overall atmosphere of the LP never wears thin. Going from the climatic heights of ‘Plymouth’ to the dub-heavy cut of ‘I Hope You Get It’, and from the slow build of ‘Running Blind’ to the laid-back dance groove of ‘Show Me’, the trio keep the textural contrast up throughout.

On titular track ‘Vera’, Crooked Colours stick to instrumentation without vocal, allowing the listener to truly appreciate the band’s deft production skills. Focusing more on the electronic side of things, the track provides a short, but well-timed, mid-album breather.

‘All Eyes’ introduces listeners to the back end of the record, a track that encapsulates the band’s ability to effortlessly change the vibe multiple times in 3 minutes. The heavy synths of ‘Shine On’ follow it up, marking the penultimate track on the LP before ‘Perfect Run’ caps off the journey. Leaving the organic instrumentation behind in favour of anthemic synths and drum machines, ‘Perfect Run’ is a track that wouldn’t sound out of place in a techno set.

Crooked Colours excel in creating mood, and with ‘Vera’ they have done just that. With a string of announced shows across Australia in August and across Europe in October, with North American dates yet to be announced, the band will be showcasing their unique brand of indie-electronica to fans on a worldwide scale.

‘Vera’ is out now via Sweat It Out.

Toronto DJ/Producer Saad Ayub: Interview with [NAS MEDIA]

Saad -new press.jpg

We had the chance to chat with Toronto DJ and producer Saad Ayub before his anticipated performance at the upcoming Bud Light Dreams Festival this July 7-8th. Ayub discussed his biggest inspirations, some tips for up and coming DJ’s, and what’s next for him and his music in 2018. Saad Ayub will be playing Toronto’s ‘Dreams Festival’ on Saturday, July 8. Tickets & more info click here.

If you can’t wait until Dreams Festival to hear Saad Ayub, he will be doing a street mix on Z103 this Monday, June 26 on the Drive @ 5, listeners can tune in!

Saad Z103 Dreams.png

Read on to learn more about Saad Ayub and what he will be up to.

We know that you will be performing this summer at Dreams Festival this upcoming July. How does it feel to perform at one of the biggest festivals in Toronto and showcase your music to thousands of fans?

 It is an absolute honour and privilege to play any major festival: Dreams is definitely top of the list for me as far as fests to perform at. The hometown crowd always brings a special vibe and energy, and I’m super excited to showcase some fresh, unreleased tracks I’ve been working on.

How has your music evolved since you first began producing?

If you follow my radio show you can hear on the intro jingle that I try to tell my life stories through my music. The sounds I produce revolve around how I feel and which direction my life is taking at any given time, and I feel I connect with my fans in great depth due to that. It’s hard to describe the evolution of my sound, but constant change is definitely there, and one of my main focuses is to push and try new things.

Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?

Armin Van Buuren for giving me the opportunities to showcase my music on his label, Ferry Corsten for his unique sound of music and Aly & Fila for pushing that harder style of Trance Music.

What single night out has been the most memorable for you? As a DJ? As an attendee?

As a DJ, the most memorable night for me was my closing set for the Digital Dreams 2013 After Party at Footwork. People were lined up to see me till 4am and the place was a jam-packed until the very end. As an attendee, there have been too many great ones to mention, but they mostly involve nights at Guv with my crew.

What is one mistake you see a lot of up and coming DJ’s making? What advice would you give to aspiring DJ’s?

CC-ing all DJs in a single email to support their tunes. Not going to lie, I was guilty for doing that too, early on. My advice is to send personalized emails and to know who you are pitching. It is key that you show you know what they’re into, and aren’t just spamming them along with hundreds of others. Never take a spray and pray approach when pitching your tracks for support!

Where do you think the scene is headed? One year from now? Five years from now?

 Globally scene is becoming more Performance based again. In Toronto, its really unpredictable market – even to look ahead six months – but normally after Summer you can have an idea of what’s new and hot. In five years? I think and hope that Rebel will become the hub for Dance Music in Toronto just like how The Guvernment used to be.

What is one sub-genre you think doesn’t get the attention it deserves?

Liquid Drum and Bass

What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?

I have two, since I couldn’t pick just one 😉

Aly & Fila – First Sun

Armin Van Buuren – Safe Inside You

What are your future plans in producing for 2017?

My 2017 productions are now pretty much finished and I’m now starting to plan for 2018. I have just released two new tracks: one with Sylvia Tosun called “Welcome to the World” on Sea to Sun, and the other one, “Revolution” with Elevation, released on A State of Trance. I have some big tunes lined up to be released starting in August and every 4-6 weeks until the end of the year. Words can’t describe how excited I am to release the upcoming ones. Some big news is coming soon!

Red Bull Sound Select: Block Party Gives You Wings [Nas Media]

Saturday June 17th – Red Bull Sound Select threw quite the block party this past Saturday at the Drake Commissary in Toronto. The day party was scheduled to start at 3PM, however Toronto’s weather had something else planned for the city. There was an issued tornado warning for about two hours over the city but thankfully the Red Bull gods came through and brought some sun over the 6ix, with only a couple hours of the block party being delayed.

As the rain clouds began to part and the sun started to shine through, more and more guests started to arrive, ready to get their groove on to some great local acts and performances. Collectif Nude curated the event and they did a great job with all of the decorations, merchandise on site, and bringing their own style to the party.

There were featured performances by MADDEE, Shagabond, Ralph, and Young Clancy. All of these artists brought a great crowd in front of their stage and brought some wicked vibes to the block party filled with positive energy and created a chill atmosphere with their upbeat pop and synth rhythms. There were also three DJ’s Jayemkayem, Max Melanin, and Ganbei, who brought some great hip-hop and deep house tunes for the crowd in between sets.

DSC_6455DSC_6343DSC_6530

Towards the evening, more and more guests started to show up and the entire lot was filled with smiling faces and happy dancers. This Red Bull Sound Select show was a complete success and we’re glad that we got to be a part of it! We’re hoping Red Bull Sound Select visits our city more often, they sure know how to throw a party.
