Flinch, the LA based dubstep and trap producer has released his newest single featuring Ellie Goulding titled ‘You Don’t Know’. Originally releasing a preview last year with the release date constantly pushed back, Flinch finally satisfies us with the full release. Living up to the expectations of the preview, ‘You Don’t Know’ features Flinch’s signature insanely heavy and catchy basslines. Greatly contrasting the bass, Ellie’s voice makes this track balance perfectly.

An astounding collaboration consisting of Seven Lions, Minnesota, and Mimi Page, you can tell where each person contributed which is a bit hard in newer collaborations coming out which sounds like one artist did all the work.
After taking a 7-month break after releasing his last track, let us tell you flat out. This track makes it worth the wait. With beautiful harmonies, outstanding underlying tones, sounds you don’t hear often in electronic music, and a drop that will leave even haters of dubstep saying “damn”, this will definitely be one of the best tracks released this year.

Knife Party, the producer duo of Rob Swire, and Gareth McGrillen, both of whom were former Pendulum members, have released their newest EP and first release of 2013, ‘Haunted House’. Showing off the talent the world is already aware of, this EP is full of tracks of the highest production quality. Following the huge success of ‘Rage Valley’ and its tracks that have become amazing hits such as ‘Centipede’ and ‘Bonfire’, this EP had to be big to live up to its expectations. Needless to say, Knife Party delivered.
‘Haunted House’ starts off with ‘Power Glove’. Taking no time for the EP to get to the action, this song opens up with massive hits, and heavy kicks. This track showcases Knife Party’s signature synths well while still bringing in plenty of new elements to keep fans entertained.
The second track on the EP is LRAD. LRAD, which stands for Long Range Acoustic Device is weapon that uses sound as a form of crowd-control. Able to emit a tone of 146 dB, it is able to permanently damage human hearing. Enough of that though, we should get onto this amazing track. LRAD starts off with an eerie feel, leading into an amazing and addictive chord progression. Featuring a perfect blend of synths, this may be one of the best tracks on the EP. Containing a drop that we haven’t really come to expect from Knife Party, they add their own elements to it and it actually sounds very good. This just comes to show you how versatile these artists are.
Third on the EP we have ‘EDM Death Machine’. Combining elements of many EDM genres, making this track unique, and then using vocals that talk about in the future when EDM is dead and nobody remembers it, this could be one of the most unique tracks you’ll hear all year. What do you think of a future where there will be no Internet Friends, Antidote, and nobody’s dropping the bass or doing the Harlem Shake?
Lastly we have ‘Internet Friends VIP’. Obviously, being a VIP, this track sounds a bit like the original. However, this version brings us some new vocals, and a really nice new break and buildup. This version is also much heavier at the end of the track than the original. Overall, fans of the original should easily be able to tell the differences between the two versions!
‘Haunted House’ is also the first major music release that will be available for purchase with the internet currency BitCoins. Although it appears it currently is not available for purchase with BitCoins, it eventually will be on their website. This could inspire more artists to release their albums on this upcoming internet currency, so hopefully it is successful!

Dead Battery, the dubstep producer from Austria has released his new 2-song EP titled Bad Monday after the first track on the EP. ‘Bad Monday’ is released not even a month after his last EP, ‘Forget Me‘, which also had 2 tracks and contained remixes. Somehow, being released so closely to his other EP, there is no affect on the production. It’s still stellar.

Having only 4,500 followers on Soundcloud and 200 on Twitter, Dead Battery is the perfect definition of under-appreciated.
