Alexander Lewis Releases Trap Anthem “March”

From his work with KRANE, Y2K, and Dabow to remixes for Mr. Carmack, DJ and producer Alexander Lewis has been on a fast rise within the electronic music scene. Through the implementation of real instruments into his music, the eclectic producer has curated his own niche sound powered by the use of his hard-hitting horns and startling synths.

His latest single, “March,” out now on Trap Nation’s LA-based record label Lowly Palace, is no different. It’s exactly what we could have hoped for. “March” is Lewis’ first single off his upcoming EP, which is bound to shake up the trap scene. It’s a warlike anthem like none other, and it includes all of the stylistic hallmarks that we have come to know and love Alexander Lewis for: mystical vocal chops, eerie piano notes, powerful drums and of course his blaring horns to top off the track. A trap masterpiece would be an understatement, “March” makes for a tune that could literally be used rally up an armed militia if need be.

Wobbleland Is A Bass Head’s Dream Destination Festival

If you’re a bass head in California, you’ve heard of Wobbleland. The festival that Vital Events started years ago has finally grown into a full-fledged 3-day event for the first time ever this year, and the booking team didn’t waste any time in filling up those time slots with the best that current bass music has to offer.

If you were looking for trap, boom: Party Favor, Quix, Jameston Thieves b2b Yookie, Valentino Khan.
If you were looking for bass house, boom: Sam F b2b Yntendo, Joyryde, Bishu, Datsik.
If you were looking for dubstep, well… there’s too many to count. It is Wobbleland after all.

From 7pm until 2am every night, thousands of bass heads poured into the San Jose City National Civic, adorned in kandi and Wobbleland & Damascus apparel, ready to headbang their little hearts out. Starting off the first day with four epic b2b sets, including a massive Phiso b2b Aweminus b2b Definitive set right in the beginning of the evening was a bold move, but it easily set the tone for the rest of the weekend. Luca Lush b2b Josh Pan was next, followed by KRANE b2b Alexander Lewis, and let me tell you… you haven’t lived until you’ve seen a man cover Keys N Krates’ “Dum De Dum” live with a freaking trombone. You just haven’t.

And as crazy as the first day was, the second day didn’t really let up at all. Starting off with Jameston Thieves b2b Yookie straight into an ear-melting set from Midnight Tyrannosaurus was just what the crowd needed to shake off the sleepy eyes from the night before. This was then followed by sets by Bleep Bloop, Jackal, Kayzo, Party Favor, and then Zomboy… so you can imagine how sore necks were after that. This was personally my favorite night of the show – too many homies to count.

For the final night, things seemed a little quieter, a little calmer (at least early on). Fans were noticeably tired and exhausted, but they paid for a 3-day ticket and they damn sure weren’t gonna let that go to waste. The night definitely started off slower than the previous two, with Bishu going into Woolymammoth. But by the time QUIX came on at 9pm, all bets were off. He threw down definitely one of the best sets of the weekend, determined to not be upstaged by who was on next… Trollphace b2b Trampa. If you were waiting for the hardest, most bass-heavy set of the weekend, you found it.

The rest of the night played out with Joyryde, Valentino Khan and Datsik in proper succession, breaking necks like you would only expect.

Of course, I haven’t even mentioned the VIP area with sets from Aweminus b2b Sudden Death, Cherney, Oolacile, Juju and more… but unfortunately, this spot was often overlooked in favor of the more grand main stage. Even still, all artists who played in the VIP area gave it their all and those in attendance were thankful for it.

Despite some issues with security throughout the weekend, most people would say that the first 3-day Wobbleland was an unadulterated success. The next major Vital Events show is Toxic Summer in just a few months! Will it be able to live up to Wobbleland? Damn straight, it will.

KRANE x DNMO – Sakura

KRANE’s SESSIONS project is one that sees the established producer give back to the community by collaborating with smaller producers that he truly believes in. With two HypeMachine number ones under his belt at the tender age of 15, DNMO is one of those emerging talents so it makes sense to see the two of them link up for a new one.

“Sakura” is an emotional track with an explosive textured soundscape that draws heavily from oriental sounds, hence the name ‘Sakura.’ With unique chimes and synth work, the two producers manage to convey some incredible emotional depth that will have listeners yearning to learn more about young DNMO.

KRANE x Laxcity – Outside ft. Sherry W

KRANE’s newest track comes in the form of his most recent SESSIONS release. KRANE fka KRNE launched a project to collaborate with as many up and coming artists as possible in what is called his SESSIONS. Past collaborations include Sober Rob, Dabow, and Juke amongst many others. The most recent is with Laxcity, a versatile producer hailing from the UK. Their collaboration “Outside” is a stunning combination of the two artist’s styles.

Record scratches are heard as a reverbed Sherry W introduces us to the melody with her soft voice. Piano carries us into the leisurely drop with pitched down vocals and dainty melodies. A cross between future bass bliss, r&b feels, and house vibes, the track caters to the worst and best of moods.

The Weeknd – Party Monster (KRANE Remix) [Free Download]

KRANE just flexed out a fresh remix of The Weeknd’s “Party Monster,” and I promise you’ll be hearing this ravaging clubs in the very near future.

Taking advantage of the nostalgia laden synths of The Weeknd’s original mix, KRANE has manipulated the arrangement into a sweltering trap anthem building the existing chorus into a soaring drop. Luscious bass covers the entire track, and of course, The Weeknd’s vocals are kept front and center to drive the vibe home.

Your EDM Premiere: Keys N Krates x KRANE – Right Here

A match that we never knew we wanted was made earlier today, when live electronic band Keys N Krates and rising underground legend KRANE teamed up to release a collaborative single, “Right Here.” Coming as a fluid blend of the two acts’ iconic styles, the song expertly combines KNK’s minimal, hard-hitting arrangement with KRANE’s sound design and songwriting prowess. The result is a track that’s already primed to hit the stages during the upcoming festival season.

When asked about the start of their relationship with KRANE, Keys N Krates said they became fans from the moment they heard his late 2015 original, “Movin.”

“When we first heard KRANE’s tune ‘Movin’ we knew he was special and we immediately became fans.  We got in contact with him, and just sort of just built and it became natural for us to work on something together eventually.  We sent him this dark RnB driven type idea that he put he then put his spin on and it started really becoming a cool blend of our sounds.”

For KRANE, the experience of working with several of his early inspirations was something to be extremely proud of.

“I remember when I started producing watching vids on Youtube of these dudes rehearsing. Been a long time fan of KnK and what they represent in electronic music, so having come all this way and made a tune with them is really something I’m extremely proud of.”

The song begins with a swell of warm synth above distant percussive strikes and a pulsating ripple, quickly rising towards the vocals as they occupy the spotlight. A gradual series kick drums and claps pairs with the climbing energy towards the drop, until an explosion of powerful future bass waves and signature, high-pitched vocal chops take over the space. Sharp snare hits and a rumbling bass transform the vibe into a riot full of cascading melodies and thick sonic textures.
