Starting off the weekend with a shock, Canadian-based Zeds Dead pairs up with the new collaborative project 1000volts on their latest single “Kill Em.”
With major performances at EDC Las Vegas, EDC China, and Beyond Wonderland over this past year, Jayceeoh paired with Method Man-collaborator Redman to form the electrifying duo known as 1000volts. Combining DJ sample scratch routines, electronic synths and sounds, and hip hop drums and lyrics, 1000volts is crafting their own genre fueled from hip hop and EDM.
The track starts off with a heavy set of trap drums, sample scratching, and Redman’s raspy voice. While the drop is filled with Zeds Dead’s signature distorted growls and gritty synths, the verse sections allow Redman’s lyricism to shine bright in the mix. The balance of electronic elements and hip hop groove is hypnotizing to any listener.
Chuurch have today dropped their full EP – Uunion – on Skrillex’s free download imprint NEST. The 4 track EP, which was teased by singles One Mind and Erase The Pain feat. Blak Trash, is one of the most sonically unique projects we’ve heard in a while, grabbing listeners attention with “Lean Bass” production that has become their hallmark sound.
The EP is defined by it’s relunctantly slow but engaging pace, and tasty blend of hip-hop and electronica. Rife with vocal samples and chunky basslines, the EP should delight fans across a multitude of genres, a true mishmash of styles both in terms of the music itself and Chuurch’s dark and somber visual aesthetic.
“This EP is a step outside the usual comfort zone of dance, we want people to embrace the dark side on this one,” – remarks Chuurch
With previous releases on Zeds Dead’s label Deadbeats and Billy Kenny’s label, This Ain’t Bristol – Chuurch have begun to bubble up in the underground and through this latest Uunion EPrelease on NEST – we think Chuurch’s time has come to pick up traction in the mainstream. With several festival shows in the works in the summer, including DeadRocks at Red Rocks in July, it’s clear that 2018 should be a big one for the Calgary-based production duo.
