Knife Party’s Rob Swire Regains Hearing After E-Cig Ear Scare

UPDATE: Rob Swire has regained hearing in his left ear today after tweeting about becoming suddenly deaf July 5.
The Knife Party star elaborated on his alarming, albeit temporary, condition, explaining that propylene glycol was to blame. The chemical is a solvent used as a vehicle for drugs like ear drops and a primary ingredient in most vaporizers or "E-cigs," however it has proven harmful to the ears, most specifically the cochlea, the spiral-like portion of the inner ear.
While studies on the effects of inhaling the chemical in vaporized form have not yet been done, pigs and chinchillas who had it administered to their middle ear in liquid form suffered deterioration of the Cochlear microphonics, or hearing receptors.

DJ and producer Rob Swire (pictured right) announced via Twitter July 5 that he has gone deaf in one ear, an all-too-common affliction among DJs and a frightening prospect for someone who makes a living in music.
One half of Knife Party and a driving force behind the legendary drum & bass outfit Pendulum, Swire and his ears have been responsible for penning some of the most iconic dance music tracks of the last decade. While fans might fret for his future output, the condition might only be temporary, and advice has already begun pouring in from his peers on how to alleviate the issue.

Zedd suffered through a similar issue in August, although no official word surfaced with regard to his own recovery time.
Further updates have yet to come from Swire's end, but we wish the best and a speedy recovery for a LessThan3 favorite.

Alesia Release 18 Tracks For Free

While we eagerly await the release of their anticipated The New Order Part II EP, Parisian bass duo Alesia has gifted their fans 18 tracks for free download.

The tracks released equal a year's worth of unfinished tunes, and the bass-smiths promise that they're "still working" on their new EP. Included in the collection are a collaboration with trap lord UZ, a titanic Jersey club-style edit of Rae Sremmurd's No Flex Zone, and a take on Tchami's track After Life. As well, dissonant, break-laden, and techno-feeling originals like Touuua V2 are included, too. While there is no word if any of these tracks will make the forthcoming New Order release, this should more than tide over fans waiting for the latest from the OWSLA-signed producers. ​

Don't delay, and grab this set of tracks here.

ODESZA Remixes Emancipator’s ‘Eve II’

Seattle-based duo ODESZA's (pictured) latest release is a remix of Eve II, a single from trip hop producer Emancipator's 2013 album From Dusk To Dawn. ​

The original version of Eve II has breaks like a trap anthem yet sways like a soul ballad. The remix, on the other hand, has a four-on-the-floor groove on the bottom end that blends well with the original's ambient atmosphere on top. With it's smooth and silky vibe, this one deserves more than a few spins to take a deep house night late into the evening. ​

The full remix EP for From Dusk To Dawn drops on July 10. Grab this remix beforehand here.
