Half an Orange – Mostly We Grow

Returning in a big way with their new Mostly We Grow Pt.2 EP, Half An Orange once again proves to be in a league of their own – showcasing their production prowess. They have engineered a masterfully crafted music journey that will leave listeners in awe.


Over the past year, indie-electronic duo Half an Orange has slowly created a universe of their own. While Ohio natives Andrew Spellman and Michael Maloof surely reside with the rest of us on this three-dimensional roller coaster of a planet, as of late they have found a flourishing musical existence among the vast void of cyberspace.

Dropping via Monstercat’s Instinct imprint, the four-track EP delivers their unique style and meaningful songwriting through organic instrumental melodies, breezy soundscapes and positive lyrics.

Half an Orange conclude: “Both parts of Mostly We Grow are about trying to grow as a person each day regardless of what life throws at you. The lowest and highest points of your life mean nothing if you don’t try to learn and grow from them.”

Through unique audio-visual experiences, passionate, vocal-centric production the prolific animated astronauts known as Half An Orange have continued their internet rise. Make sure you give their Mostly We Grow Pt.2 EP a listen below!

Your EDM Premiere: Viper's 'Acts of Mad Men' vol.2 Teases Yet another Massive Single With 'Lust'

Your EDM Premiere: Viper’s ‘Acts of Mad Men’ vol.2 Teases Yet another Massive Single With ‘Lust’

With the celebration of Viper’s 15 year anniversary, the imprint is reintroducing one of the things that put it on the map. The first Acts of Mad Men, released ten years ago, was a two-CD compilation album featuring heavy hitting tracks by the up-and-comers of the time, almost all of whom are now household names. Metrik, Camo & Krooked, Delta Heavy, Brookes Brothers, Nero, DC Breaks and label boss Futurebound himself all contributed tracks and all those tracks are now considered classics.


Ten years later, Viper has been teasing the hell out of the second coming of the Acts of Mad Man project and it stands to have much the same effect on the D&B landscape as the first compilation. Thus far, Magnetude, InsideInfo, Halflight and Blaine Stranger. Today’s release is the second part of a double single which includes a remix of Mefjus and Insideinfo’s “Pulsation” by Annix, teased two weeks ago by way of social media and a melodic banger by BMotion and Jack Mirror called “Lust.” Your EDM has the exclusive premiere of “Lust,” so let’s get stuck in.

What constitutes a “melodic banger,” you say? It seems BMotion and Jack Mirror have created a need for the term with “Lust.” Heavy, cinematic and dark with a melodic, ravey soundscape in synths and vocals, this track chugs along with a fervor so fast and raw that it almost leaves the dancefloor behind.

With multiple synth melodies, echo effects and an eerie yet beautiful instrumental section in the

Zeds Dead Drop New Deadbeats Radio Mix For Halloween

Zeds Dead Drop New Deadbeats Radio Mix For Halloween

Entering late into the Halloween mix race is Zeds Dead! One of my first times seeing the Canadian duo was at HARD Day of the Dead 2013 when they played atop a massive haunted house, so I have no doubt they can throw down a spooky mix along with the best of em. Thankfully, I didn’t have to listen very long to have my suspicions confirmed.


This is easily one of the spookiest mixes of the holiday, with “Monster Mash,” “Devil’s Den,” a “Thriller” mash up, the duo’s own “The Twilight Zone,” and more, including 1788-L’s new remix of the Halloween theme song. Track selection is only a part of the game when it comes to presenting a certain vibe within a mix, but Zeds Dead have it down to a science.

Check out the full mix below!

Tracklist:
Stranger Things – Main Theme (JACKNIFE Bootleg)
Rezz & Malaa – Criminals

Crankdat Drops Thrilling 'Fearworld' EP Just in Time for Halloween

Crankdat Drops Thrilling ‘Fearworld’ EP Just in Time for Halloween

Crankdat just dropped a horrifying 2-track EP, just in time for the spookiest day of the year!


With this new release, Crankdat’s signature Gearworld has flipped a switch — it’s Fearworld now. The EP includes two absolutely menacing bass productions, “Horror Hour” and “Phantom Cry.”

Crankdat has become a master of his own craft and we’re confident only he could think up Halloween-themed songs as theatrical and scream-worthy as these ones. Haunting synths, threatening bass, and blood-curdling surprises lurk at every corner. Beware.

Without further ado, Crankdat presents “the most terrifying place in the universe,” Fearworld. Listen below.

Getter Drops Emotional New Original “Heartless” [MUST LISTEN]

Getter is taking those Visceral vibes and running with them, as heard in his latest single out today.


“Heartless” showcases Getter’s ability to effortlessly shift from genre to genre, making for something truly raw and real. Our brains scramble to make sense of it — he starts with a four on the floor house beat, and then — wait, what is he doing? It’s better to let go of all that and listen.

“Heartless” is simply beautiful and deeply emotional, letting us in on yet another side of Getter we’re not fully accustomed to. His focus is on the music, not on the ways we try to define it — originality at its best.

And, we like to think this is a low key middle finger to all those who hated on Visceral.

Listen to “Heartless” below and belt out the lyrics:

Cut my heart out
We’ll never work it out
But we keep trying
And you keep crying
Feels like I’m frozen
You think I’m chosen
Please don’t start this
Maybe I’m heartless 

Getter – Heartless

Axwell Drops Fiery New Remix For Halsey’s “Graveyard”

Axwell brings a different kind of Halloween vibe this year with his new remix of “Graveyard” by Halsey.


This combo isn’t a total surprise, but it’s still somewhat unexpected. Axwell teased an unnamed remix a little over a week ago and dropped this one on fans today. Not only are Halsey’s vocals pitched down for a bit of a darker vibe, the entire vibe of the song is thoroughly reimagined.

The original “Graveyard” was as close to a singer/songwriter masterclass as you get, with acoustic guitar, soft electronic pads, and Halsey’s enchanting vocals. As soon as Axwell got his hands on it, the electronic aspect was pushed to its limits with the Swedish house star at the helm. Vocals were chopped and screwed and the quaint songwriting and composition was replaced with a dirty bassline fit for dark clubs at 3am.

Check out the remix below, and catch Halsey on tour here.

Martin Garrix Drops Strangely Pleasant Song “Used To Love” For Halloween

Everyone today is dropping spooky tracks or mixes in celebration of Halloween — except for Martin Garrix. Honestly, it’s hard to tell if there’s a spooky bone in the wholesome Dutch boy’s body, and his new song with Dean Lewis, “Used To Love,” reinforces the suspicion that there isn’t.


“Used To Love” is the usual Garrix fare, with some quaint vocal chops in the drop and an non-intrusive melody. Lewis’ voice never really stands out from the production, which itself never really reaches any sort of crescendo. It’s a lot like his songs “No Sleep” with BONN or “There for You” with Troye Sivan, showing off a more mellow side to his sound, rather than the firework-inducing main stage bangers most people know him for.

Check out “Used To Love” from Martin Garrix and Dean Lewis below, out now on STMPD RCRDS. Catch Martin Garrix on tour here.

My Chemical Romance Announces Reunion Show In LA Next Month

My Chemical Romance just announced their first show in seven years and fans are freaking out.


After updating their profile picture and cover photo on Facebook, the band revealed a “RETURN” show set for Friday, December 20, 2019 in Los Angeles at the Shrine Expo Hall. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12:00 PM PST with prices starting at $149.

The general standing capacity of the Shrine Expo Hall is approximately 5,000, so this will sell out instantly. Hell, even if this was at the Hollywood Bowl, (capacity: 17,000) it would still probably sell out in seconds.
