Well it looks like they wrote the blog post for me. Check out the ridiculously long description + a bonus track from their “Seven Deadly Sins’ EP. down below! This shit bangs!
— Level 99 trap wizards and longtime collaborators Mayhem and Antiserum are taking their sound to the next level with the forthcoming ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ release. Coinciding with a ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ North American tour, the ante-upping seven-track EP will be available from October 21st. As a thank you to their fans, the duo will be dropping a free download per day via SoundCloud until the release is uploaded in full. Finally, the EP delivers to Amazon, Apple Music, Beatport, GooglePlay, iTunes, Spotify in addition to other major retailers and streaming services on October 29th.
The package consists of 7 genre defying hybrid tunes with a variety of flavors and colors. Each individual track has been carefully crafted to work not only in a dance floor context but also as a cohesive journey, taking the listener through a world of sin to a hopeful place in seven different shades. Elements of the two artist’s past productions and influences collide with several previously untapped styles, introducing themselves to their repertoire. Ricky Remedy, MACTurnUp, and Bulletproof each separately join the duo as hand-selected features for three of the records on the EP.
Mayhem and Antiserum have also announced their first ever co-headlining North American tour with the seven track release. The two will make their way through 30 cities across the states and into Canada. Notable stops on the #7DSTOUR include the ‘Hallow Freakn Ween Festival’ for Global Dance in Denver on Oct 31st, the legendary “Control” at Avalon in Los Angeles on Nov 6, and for Catharsis Collective at Soundgarden Hall in Philadelphia on Dec 11.

Just playing catchup here. I couldn’t post 12 without throwing up some of the stuff I found over the last month and a half or so. I’m not going to link everything up but you should be able to track most of the artists I’ve featured just through soundcloud.
22 hand picked tracks from last week. I think you might find some surprises on this weeks list which included several artists with less than 1,000 followers on Soundcloud. If you had to pick an MVP of week 6, who would it be? I’m going to start writing features on the artists with the most popular tracks. This will probably start next week.
This track is perfect for today’s gloomy LA weather. GLXY is another producer that I know very little about (go figure), but after creeping on his soundcloud I can see that he has an ep coming out soon, which will hopefully be filled with tracks just like “Promise”. There is a dark and sort of erie feeling to this song but it also has this infectious bass line that reminds me of some flume tracks from the past. A solid vocal sample finishes off the song beautifully and we are left with yet another track for the AH “Feeling This” series. Well done GLXY. Be sure to give him a follow at one of the links below.
Monstercat continues to work with some of the best producers on earth including the man behind this post, Dutch born San Holo. His Victory EP is just brilliant. The production quality and melody selections are top tier and I would pay good money to see this guy live. The only issue I have with this project is that it’s only 3 tracks long! I first heard the title track “Victory” about a week ago and decided to wait for the full release before posting. I know I’ve posted a lot of EPs today but you can’t slow this music down and as long as it keeps coming my way, I’ll do my best to keep it going out to you. Enjoy!
Damn this entire project just just so dope, This is my first taste of the work of Sam Khatam aka “Persian Empire” and I know it will not be my last. Germany has always been known for it’s talented producers in electronic music but I don’t think I’ve ever heard somebody with beats like this come out of Deutschland before. I love his use of samples on his tracks which is often missing in a lot of today’s “Bass” or “future bass” music. Check out his bio and links below and support “DONC” with a dl from his bandcamp page. Straight fire right here!
Sam Khatam better known as Persian Empire is a young upcoming producer from Germany.
Music was always a big influence in Sam’s life, therefore it’s hard to date the beginning of Persian Empire. After traditional music lessons in his youth, Sam discovered the great variety of the electronic music scene, which he became acquainted with.
In 2011 he started to produce his own compositions, by using selfmade sounds along with edited samples. The self-taught artist deconstructs the traditional structure of music and transforms his samples into a detailed electronic sound. Smooth synthesizers, deep bass beats and experimental vocals create harmonic compositions, which extend the diversity of the “bass” and “2-step” genre. When he isn’t producing his own music, Sam is collaborating with selected artists from around the world and gets featured in numerous blogs and mixes.
In a short period of time he found his own way of expression to meet with good response within the community.
This Friday night, two of the biggest heavy hitters in bass music will converge on the infamous Avalon theater for what will surly be on the the craziest parties of the year.
Avalon’s Friday night party “Control” is well known for showcasing some of the best electronic music in the scene today. Both Crizzly and Antiserum have headlined this night before and both bring their high energy styles to one of the best sound systems in the city. It will be impossible to have a bad time tomorrow so get your tickets at the link below and check out some video from these two gods of bass.
UK stand out R.O.M. drops his very first ep with Future Beats records today and it’s really a solid collection of tracks. This whole future bounce sound is flourishing on the computers of a lot of young producers today, but very few of them are putting out quality like this and it’s rare for a producer at such a young age to already have such a mature and polished sound. I can tell big things are coming for R.O.M and I hope we can get him out to LA for a show soon.
I have been telling people about Josh Pan for a while now and finally I now have a complete project to pass around. If you are not familiar with this NYC based producer then I suggest getting familiar very quickly. I’d say Josh is most well known for just how smooth and effortless his tracks sound. I can’t say I really dislike anything he has put out so far and Pandora’s Box really shows off how mature his musical taste and production really is. If this is a sign of what’s to come from Josh in 2015 then everybody is in trouble and should be looking over their shoulders. Hopefully we can get him to come play live for us in LA very soon. For now enjoy “Pandora’s Box” and be sure to support Josh and buy it from bandcamp here.
