*Rager Onions Exclusive* | Tenkai – Rise Up (Ωhmtrix Remix)

Over the past year or so we have had the pleasure of getting to know a few of the big players overs at SectionZ Records and several of the abnormally talented musicians they represent (Savant, Kaster, City 17, Soulero). However, there still remains numerous artists on the SectionZ lineup that we have not had the chance to premier for you, the listener.

Well, it would seem today is your lucky day.

Shannon and Josh over at SectionZ have been around the EDM block so to speak, a few times actually. Not only are they super easy to work and collaborate with, but these two instantly know great music when they hear it. Together, the two coagulate their years of experience and the relationships formed therein to represent, support and foster musicians with an overwhelming sense of musicality and depth of production. This next artist, Ωhmtrix (pronounced “ohm-tricks”) is no exception as you will soon see.

For those of you who haven’t been required to complete two frivolous semesters of introductory physics in order to get into pharmacy school, an “Ohm” is the international system of units used to “measure electrical resistance between two points of a conductor”, represented by the symbol ‘Ω’. If you’ve ever taken a look at the inner workings of an electrical device, you bet your ass you’ve seen a “resistor”, the passive component that “implements electrical resistance as a circuit element”.

Speaking of measuring electrical resistance, this London based producer has a new album coming out on November 11th. And wouldn’t you know it; Ωhmtrix has aptly titled the release Measure of Resistance. Very clever Sam.

SectionZ has again bestowed upon us the honor of premiering an exclusive track from another one of their musicians who is far ahead of the production learning curve. This time it’s Ωhmtrix’s remix to Tenkai’s complextro track “Rise Up”.

On this jam, Ωhmtrix recycles those original, soulful lyrics from Tenkai’s mix to to bring about this inspirational feeling when paired with the addition of Sam’s glitching, modulated bass exploration. Honestly, it sounds like our subwoofer is trying to speak to us with the way that Ωhmtrix has distorted each successive bass’ utterance.

Ωhmtrix has put together a laundry list of stellar tracks, fit for any dance floor or intimate setting. With the help of live instrumentals and the raw power of drum and bass, breakbeats and dubstep, Sam Wheeler has applied his dark, almost cinematic touch to every song on Measure of Resistance. Each recording seems to paint a picture or set a particular scene within the listener’s imagination. Seriously, this shit is reflective and deep as hell. As far as you and I are concerned, it’s certified, Rager Approved.

As we have stated previously, the full album is set to drop November 11th on SectionZ Records. So, watch out! And of course, enjoy.

If you dig, follow SectionZ and Ωhmtrix on SoundCloud, the greatest website in existence. Well, besides Reddit that is.

Mr. Bill and Haywyre – Dress Codes [Instrumental Glitch][FREE]

The latest project from Mr. Bill known as ‘The Collaborative Endeavors – A Glitch Opera’ is a 19 track masterpiece composed of joint efforts from Mr. Bill and select artists of his choosing. Since April 1st, 2013 one track has been released per week to create this massive collaboration. The final track, a match up between Mr. Bill and Haywyre, is an instrumental glitch-hop track worthy of several listens.

Mr. Bill states on his artist page that his music is based on evocation. He enjoys creating music that ‘excites the ear and the brain’. In order to do this, he utilizes a vast range of “strange” production methods and musical theories in order to create these unique sounds. His sound is characterized by unlatched, glitchy breakbeats, heavy, swung-out bass lines and flawless edits with “a large dash of palatable melodic content.” We can get down to that for sure.

On the other end of this collaboration, we have Martin Vogt, aka, Haywyre. Martin has been studying piano since the age of six and became enthralled with the idea of production ever since he was introduced to jazz and hip-hop while living in Australia. After moving back to the US (Minneapolis), Haywyre was born. Using the piano as his main compositional tool, Martin utilizes memorable jazz and classical influences to craft melodically unique electronic jams.

The progression of this song is a force to be reckoned with. One listen will immediately get you hooked on this track. The glitch hop technique is executed brilliantly with the use of non-electronic instruments such as the guitar and bass. DO NOT pass this one up. You will indeed regret it.

Boys Noize ‘Go Hard’ EP [Acid Disco House]

The latest and greatest from Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize precipitates in the form of his brand new EP Go Hard.

Prepare to enter a world full of acid and disco-house that truly goes HARD.

In 2012, Rolling Stone rated Alex amongst the top 10 “DJ’s who rule the earth.” So he’s got that going for him. Which is nice. Lately, his collaboration with Skrillex known as Dog Blood has been some of the most highly anticipated music in the EDM scene. This time however, he’s going in alone.

If your ready to rage then look no further. The fresh release from German sensation Boys Noize is top quality. Pray to God your favorite Club DJ takes requests, cause these jams go best with the lights low and the lasers beaming. Perchance with a dance partner?
