Alex Mind – Maelstrom [Brazilian Electro House]


Many of you may know Alex Mind from his role as one of the two members of I.Y.F.F.E. (In Your Face Fuck Everything), a dubstep/glitch hop duo that has certainly hit the ground running over the the past two years. Pairing up with labels such as Monstercat, OWSLA and Buygore, Alex and his partner Conrad Funk have proven to be a lethal combination. Together the pair has reached the top of the Beatport charts in Drum and Bass (#2 of 100) for their winning entry of the Seven Lions remix contest of ‘Days to Come’ and Electro House (#25 of 100) for their original mix ‘Sweet‘, a collaboration between Au5, Auratic and I.Y.F.F.E..

However, since 2010, Alex Mind has been crafting Electro House bangers that have reached the top ten on Beatport four different times for that particular genre. His music has been re-played worldwide and included in sets from EDM legends such as Sander Van Doorn, Zedd and Porter Robinson.

Alex has been praised for bringing a breath of fresh air to the realm of Electro House for his unique and captivating productions which can be characterized by lunging bass, euphoric high-pitched melodies and intense drum rhythm arrangements.

His latest release titled Maelstrom is certainly no different. As the songs introduces itself, the listener will ascertain a feel for what exactly they are in store for. Then, when the songs drops, Alex brings together those signature sounds that we have mentioned previously to create a one-of-a-kind, hard hitting Electro track that will leave the listener begging for more.

Coyote Kisses – Thundercolor EP [Chill Space Punks][Artist Spotlight]

A change of pace is always nice.

Coyote Kisses has done EDM listeners a solid with the release of their latest EP titled Thundercolor. In an effort to stray away from becoming simple, “cookie-cutter complextro producers” and “womp, womp bro-steppers,” Bryce Bresnan and Joe Sussingham have taken a vow. They promise to be more than just the norm. The tandem of producers have crafted their own sound that they fittingly dub “Space Punk.”

Whatever they call it, we love it.

The group is comprised of two lifelong friends whose grass roots emanate from their hometown of Lakeland, Florida. The duo have since parted ways to attend college – one to Lexington, Virginia and the other to Sarasota, Florida. But, distance appears to be no burden for Bryce and Joe. Their first taste of success came about last year, when their single ‘Acid Wolfpack‘ reached the coveted number one spot on Hype Machine (on the first day!). This gained the attention of many labels.

After re-releasing ‘Acid Wolfpack’ and their first EP on Burn the Fire Records, Coyote Kisses got the nod from Interscope to remix Carly Rae Jepsen’s incredibly popular single Call Me Maybe. Maybe you’ve heard of it? Other notable accomplishments of theirs include: winning Mad Decent’s remix competition of the song ‘Titan‘ by Clockwork and beating out 1400 other contestants to win the popular vote in OWSLA’s ‘Days to Come‘ Beatport contest. Lord knows we cannot count that high so according to Google, 1400 is A LOT.

With the release of their sophomore EP Thundercolor, CK has combined influences of punk rock, future bass and many other styles to synthesize something completely unique. The new sound is truly indicative of the talent these two gentlemen possess. Each song on the EP is elegantly composed and gracefully layered, with a special attention to detail. Coyote Kisses use of modulated guitar and bass (yeah we mean an actual, tangible instruments) makes these four tracks unlike most things you will come across in EDM. To experience the full-effect, wear some dope-ass headphones when listening. You will not regret it.

And whatever you do, DO NOT leave this page without listening to ‘This Is How You Know,’ because that track is how we know Coyote Kisses is going places in twenty thirteen.
