The M Machine’s Andy Coenen Moves On From Trio

On the morning of their first tour date, Andy Coenen (pictured, right) of The M Machine has announced that he will be leaving the group and returning to school to focus on his love of technology.

The San Francisco-based trio consisting of Coenen, Ben Swardlick (left), and Eric Luttrell (middle) was formed in 2011 and experienced a considerable amount of success with their unique musical style and branding. The group released several EPs on Skrillex' OWSLA label, including the #1 Beatport hit Metropolis Part 2, and are currently on a massive tour for their latest EP release, Just Like.

Despite the success, Coenen is set in his decision.

"The truth of the matter is I never thought I'd get to be a musician at all, let alone do it for six years. For those of you who know me well, this probably won't come as much of a surprise, and for those of you who don't I'd like to give a quick explanation - I'm moving on from my role in The M Machine to pursue my love for technology. I'm back in school for a bit, then who knows?"
As disappointing as this news may be, fans can breathe a bit easier to know that Swardlick and Luttrell will continue touring and producing under The M Machine moniker. Head here for more info on their Just Like tour.

Spor Returns With ‘Nasty’ Remix Of The Prodigy

Drum & bass fans rejoice! We've finally got a new Spor release, and it is a doozy: a remix of The Prodigy's new single Nasty, off their upcoming album The Day Is My Enemy.

Jon Gooch, aka Spor, has certainly been a busy boy--in between a full-length Spor album and a new Feed Me EP, he's still managed to rework The Prodigy's breaks beat into a blistering, take-no-prisoners D&B number. After several years of silence, it's nice to have Spor back delivering a healthy (and aggressive) dose of 170 BPM madness.

No release date yet for the remix, but you can pick up the original version of Nasty when you pre-order The Prodigy's forthcoming album on iTunes here.

Meaux Green & Caked Up Are Ready For Some ‘Drank’

Trap masters Meaux Green (pictured right) and Caked Up are back with a new original track titled Drank that is sure to get the booty-shaking juices flowing.

The song gets its name from a sample that the producers grabbed from the popular 2006 Lil Scrappy and Young Buck track, Money In The Bank. Playing heavily off of the vocals which repeat throughout their new original, Meaux and Caked Up deliver a festival-ready bomb bursting with high-pitched twerk synths and massive amounts of bass.
