PREMIERE: The Geek x VRV – Believe In Me (Original Mix) [All Good]

Paris' two-part bass act The Geek x VRV (pictured above, respectively) are ready to debut on fellow glitch-head GRiZ' All Good Records with the Electric City EP, and LessThan3 has the exclusive premiere of one of its funkiest numbers, Believe In Me.

The tune is the third and final early reveal from the seven-item package and follows up the previously released title track and All Around with its well-produced glitch hop vibe and crunchy bass, which recalls classic Gramatik.

Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore To Release First Solo Album In A Decade

Martin Gore, the songwriter and founding member of Depeche Mode, is set to release his first solo album in over 10 years.

Simply titled MG, the album was recorded at Gore’s home studio in Santa Barbara following the conclusion of Depeche Mode’s 2013 Delta Machine tour. Gore stated that he aimed to make the instrumental album “very filmic” and wanted to give it an almost “sci-fi-like quality.” MG follows the release of Ssss, Gore’s VCMG project with fellow Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke.

Gore also revealed why he chose to leave MG as an instrumental record:

"As a songwriter, I am aware of the power of words. Especially when they are juxtaposed in the right way with chords and melody. I am also aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.”
Listen to the ethereal first track from the album, Europa Hymn, up above, and see the full tracklist below. MG is out April 28 via Mute.

1. Pinking
2. Swanning
3. Exalt
4. Elk
5. Brink
6. Europa Hymn
7. Creeper
8. Spiral
9. Stealth

The Do Androids Dream EP promises to feature more of the genre-bending mix and experimental work that Bayer has become known for.

Enigmatic ATTLAS Unveils New Single, ‘Scarlett’

Who or what is ATTLAS? That's the question on everyone's mind lately. The mysterious producer first turned the dance music world on its head with a stunning remix of deadmau5' Aural Psynapse and the lead track on mau5trap's We Are Friends Vol. 3 compilation. Now, the enigmatic producer has revealed his (her/their?) first official solo release, Scarlett.

Scarlett opens with an airy, cinematic buildup before quickly transitioning into a twisted, bass-heavy trek through layers of crisp percussion, sleek melodies, and orchestral sophistication. At this point in the game, all we have to go by is the artist's music, and for someone who only popped up three months ago, ATTLAS sure sounds like a seasoned veteran.

Download Scarlett on Beatport here. It should hopefully tide you over until the release of ATTLAS' debut EP, Siren, due out March 30.

Damaged Goods Gives Duck Sauce An Energetic Makeover

One of the biggest releases of 2014 was Duck Sauce's long-awaited debut album Quack. Many of the album's tracks have seen their fair share of remixes, but Miami-based producer Damaged Goods' new remix of Charlie Chazz & Rappin Ralph might just be the best of the bunch.

While Duck Sauce's original version of Charlie Chazz & Rappin Ralph sounds like something straight out of the '70s with its blaring horns and disco-themed bassline, Damaged Goods trades in the retro sounds for a modern electro romp that features a grinding lead synth and a pounding four-on-the-floor beat. He does keep some of the funky vibes from the original intact, however, by including sped-up vocals and a bouncy bassline that is sure to be a hit on dancefloors all over.

Head over to Damaged Goods' SoundCloud page to grab a copy of the free download.
