Nero Is So Back – Satisfy [Original Mix] [NEW!]



Sorry, I generally do my best to avoid reading the unfathomably ignorant comments streaming alongside SoundCloud tracks.

For this next song however, I could not help but read each one of them and revel in the collective excitement surrounding the concept of brand new music from one of the most legendary names in EDM – Nero.

The above excerpt, taken from a random fan’s joyous response to the release, just so happened to be my favorite of the lot…mainly because that fan’s sentiments are akin to my own.

Nero’s back bitches!

Landing on a coincidentally apt title for their new jam – producers Daniel Stephens, Joe Ray, and vocalist Alana Watson are finally back on the scene after a somewhat lengthy hiatus in production (we would have waited forever though, honestly).

While constantly contributing to and perusing around the massive EDM blog-o-sphere, I all too often find its writers over using clichéd buzz words like “epic” or “dirty.” However, in situations such as these, I feel helpless when I truly have no other way of describing Nero’s latest release, “Satisfy”.

It definitely is epic, but then again, of course it is.

We’re talking about The Trifecta here.


Our contrived description of their productions as “epic” emanates directly from the talents Daniel and Joe possess as great musicians. The way this tandem of producers craft there art is unlike any other out there. Each and every song on Nero’s last album “Welcome Humanity” showcases the duo’s uncanny ability to progress a song, and make you bust a groove (or maybe even a nut).

This concept may seem a bit intangible at first, however, that’s because it is.

You cannot teach this stuff. It comes from years of experience, growing as both an overall musician and more specifically, an electronic dance music producer. It’s most certainly the way their tracks open, build, drop and decay that makes each song a entirely unique piece of artwork. Lyrics aside, each song will clearly and vividly unravel a story with the progression of its tone, mood, rate and instrumental arrangements.

With a brand new album soon on the way from Nero, “Satisfy” will just have to do for now.

And we’re just fine with that.

Zedd ft. Hayley Williams – Stay The Night (TBMA Remix) [FREE]

Yes, yes, we all know how good the original was. However, a jam like “Stay The Night” by Zedd and Hayley Williams of Paramore will only solidify a spot for itself amongst other epic, pop EDM anthems by continuing to spawn fantastic remixes by other artists interested in providing their own stylistic take on the hyper-malleable, universally adored original. We do not fear this will be a problem at all for this song.

Want proof?

Take this next example from The Bolivian Marching Affair or TBMA as they liked to be referred to as. Hailing from both Boston and The District of Columbia, Joey Fisher, Kyle Meagher, and Chris Curran of TBMA have killed it on their complextro dubstep remix to “Stay The Night.” Utilizing the original, incredibly powerful and reverberative vocals by Hayley Williams (but with a modulated twist), the boys have applied their own brand of uptempo, sample heavy beats to synthesize a great remix.

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.
