For those unfamiliar with Monstercat, it’s a label stacked with some of the best up and coming electronic music talent. Taking a look at the Monstercat YouTube channel, you’ll notice they cover nearly every popular genre. At this point in time, in the music industry, there are many competing labels that try to pull in artists in order to gain a reputation, not to mention money off the music charts when they have a song get very popular. Monstercat is in my opinion one of the stronger indepentent labels, and just a quick browse through YouTube should give you a clear reason why.
But this post isn’t about the label, it’s about one act off the label thats been on my radar since he joined. Tut Tut Child has an edgy sound that wow’d me as soon as I started pulling up track after track by him. That was months ago, and just this week, I had the pleasant surprise of finding out he dropped his 2nd EP. This time, instead of the hard hitting bass music I had begun to hear him pump out, I was blessed with six tracks, all of various genres. I’ll post a few tracks for you to get a feel of the album for, but make sure to check out his social media links to find more by him.
The new bass music super group, composed of Excision, Downlink, and Space Laces (and also Pendulum’s KJ Swaka), released their first single for free this week. They are a force to be reckoned with, and this track just proves it. No need for coffee this morning, just listen to the track.
Last but not least, to round off this bass music kick, we have the runner up to Beatport’s remix contest for the popular Skrillex collaboration. Candyland took the title, but I still feel this track hits harder. Regardless, you’ll probably see all the other contestants releasing their remixes, so make sure to check them out and tell us which one was your favorite.
