Le Castle Vania & Lumberjvck Bring The Pain On ‘You Know My Name’

Atlanta-based bass demon Le Castle Vania links up with LA's relative newcomer Lumberjvck for the fearsome four-track You Know My Name EP, available now as a free download.

The cross-country collab brings together the rising trap star Lumberjvck, whose ruthless beats dating back little more than a year have found a home at such similarly promising imprints as Kannibalen, and LCV, whose catalog including such illustrious labels as mau5trap needs little exhibition. Together, Le Castle and Lumberjvck inflict pain by leaving their own comfort zones of--mostly--electro house and trap, respectively, and show off their versatility with visceral exercises in adjacent and, at times, familiar sounds of dubstep, breaks, and electro-moombahton.

They break skin with the title track, a punishing and relentless bit of brostep that, while impressive today, would make 2012 its bitch in exchange for a bag of chips.

Our unholy alliance continue their tour of the tougher textures of bass music with Numba One, a limber 110 electrohton cut sporting a funky glitch hop breakdown.

The hands-down highlight of the EP for me is the hilarious Ham Sandwich, a blend of more 110 bass with a finely tuned breakbeat flip-out halfway through, all blessed with a sidesplitting sample in the same league as the infinite LOLs available in Kill The Noise's Thumbs Up.

Not without their sensitive sides, our two bass music loonies lay off their giddy beatdown long enough for an emotive, melodic send-off featuring the vocals of Mariana Bell--beautiful.

LISTEN: 10 Most Shazamed Tracks Of Tomorrowland 2015

Europe's biggest electronic music festival, Tomorrowland, has come and gone. Whether you were lucky enough to make the trip, or if you threw it down with some friends and watched the live stream, hopefully you got to experience some of the madness. If not, have no fear, because Shazam has collected the list of the most Shazamed songs of Belgium's Tomorrowland festival July 24-26.

While it should come as no surprise that artists like Avicii, Jack U, and Major Lazer made the list, the inclusion of music by Broiler, Felix Jaehn, and Kygo is definitely unexpected. Netsky and his latest groove Rio are Belgian, so that might account for some extra play. But as for Kygo and Stole The Show, it's hard to imagine too many attendees at one of the largest festivals on the planet being unable to name a six-month-old radio hit that calls itself by name from beginning to end. What's more, DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge's track is over eight months old! Perhaps even more surprising is that only Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's Higher Place falls into the category of festival-style, big room anthems.

Listen to the full list up above of the most Shazamed tracks of Tomorrowland 2015.

Claptone Shares ‘Puppet Theatre’ & Debut Album Details

Golden-beaked mystery producer Claptone (pictured) has released Puppet Theatre, a quirky collaboration made with Swedish indie rockers Peter Björn and John, and revealed that he's preparing to drop his first album Charmer.

The track release comes as a surprise since Peter Björn and John's last album Gimme Some dates back to 2011, leading to fans to believe that the group had taken a musical hiatus. Puppet Theatre features band member Peter Morén's iconic relaxed voice slung over uncomplicated piano chords and a driving bassline. It's a perfect stylistic marriage between two groups that are known for their slightly unconventional interpretation of popular sounds--Claptone with his take on house and Peter Björn and John with indie rock.

With the track release comes news of Claptone's first long-form effort, Charmer. The album will be released Oct. 15 via Different and will include his previously released hits No Eyes and Ghost, which you can listen to on his SoundCloud here.
