NGHTMRE Joins the ‘Tribe’

The smooth vocals of Theophilus London collide with the unique trap-inspired sounds of LA-based producer NGHTMRE in the latter's remix of London's "Tribe."

If you're looking for a reason why NGHTMRE has been able to differentiate himself from the large number of trap and twerk producers currently out there, you need look no further than his Tribe remix. NGHTMRE combines futuristic synths, chopped-up vocals, and trap-inspired bass and percussion to deliver a spacey remix that fuses together elements of several different genres.

Following in line with many of his previous works, NGHTMRE is giving this one away for free so head over to his SoundCloud page to grab the download.

Shlohmo Announces ‘Dark Red’ Album, Releases New Single, ‘Buried’

To coincide with the debut of his first live tour kicking off in March, Shlohmo has announced that he is set to release his second studio album, Dark Red.

In a statement made to FACT Mag, Shlohmo had this to say about Dark Red:

"When I started working on Dark Red about two and a half years ago, I had just moved back to LA and built a small studio in my apartment, mostly with my dad’s old gear from the 80s. I had just lost some people close to me and was dealing with another loved one’s health issues. I was all over the place mentally, and I think it reflects in this record whether I like it or not."
The second single off the album is Burial, which hints at a more somber direction for the producer. In a similar vein the album's first single, Emerge From Smoke, Burial offers up a darker sound while still retaining the dramatic quality heard on his previous productions.

Dark Red drops April 7 via True Panther and fans can pre-order it here.

Tracklist:
1 Ten Days of Falling
2 Meet Ur Maker
3 Buried
4 Emerge From Smoke
5 Slow Descent
6 Apathy
7 Relentless
8 Ditch
9 Remain
10 Fading
11 Beams

Wiwek On The Rise Of Jungle Terror + 5 Favorite Tracks

2015 LessThan3 artist to watch Wiwek (pronounced WEE-wack) got his production start making trance and hip hop, but it wasn't until he moved toward more tribal sounds that he really found his niche and created what became an entirely new genre--jungle terror.

Interestingly enough, Wiwek never set out to actually create a new genre. It began as a simple SoundCloud tag:

I was starting to make these tunes that were really tribal, but they were a bit harder than usual tribal house and I would always add these weird noises, like monkeys and chanting. I remember I was hanging out with some friends and I told them I made some "jungle terror," 'cause that was the first thing that came up in my head, first as a joke, but after a while I started to put it as a genre in SoundCloud. Back in 2012 you had to tag a genre when you wanted to upload something to SoundCloud.
Then out of nowhere, Wiwek began to get considerable mainstream support, and producers around the world began creating their own jungle terror tunes:

During Miami 2014 my tunes were played everywhere, especially On Your Mark with Gregor Salto, and I started to notice lots of guys were inspired by it and creating similar sounding stuff which was tagged as "jungle terror" too. After that I started to realize I may have started something that other people will see as a genre. There's a whole community going on in a Facebook group where people share all their jungle terror tunes and ideas.
Fast forward to now, and Wiwek is being support by the likes of Diplo, Dillon Francis, and Skrillex, the latter of whom recently stated in an interview that his OWSLA label would be releasing Wiwek's music in 2015, and referred to jungle terror as "the new sh*t." Wiwek's also got his own label, Rimbu, which features some of the best up-and-coming jungle terror talent out there.

Clearly the Dutch upstart has a big 2015 to look forward to, and we were lucky enough to have him share some of his current favorite tracks with us. Take a listen below.


Funky Craig & Rawtek - Shaka Zulu (Original Mix) [Rimbu]
This is my favorite track I've released on Rimbu. I've been playing this tune ever since they sent it to me in August. Such a crazy tune with amazing vibes--turns every club into a mad jungle rave. These guys have been hiding under the radar, but it won't take long before they break into scene.
PURCHASE
Kavido - Shape (Original Mix) [Rimbu]
Tribal club house at its finest. Love that switch in the second part of the drop. Keeps the crowd grooving.
PURCHASE
Aquadrop & Big Fish feat. Stush - Gyal Like Me (Original Mix) [Rimbu]
Excellent tune with dope vocal work from Stush. Summer vibes all over the place but still banging enough for the clubs. After I heard this I just had to work with Stush. She did the vocals on my tune Ground Shake and another one that is still coming up!
PURCHASE
Moska & Nezzo - Barbarian (Original Mix) [Wall]
One of my latest favorites; really good choice to have those chants in the drop. Love that warrior feeling.
PURCHASE
Nash One & Mike Cervello - Murda (Original Mix) [Rimbu]
These guys are my friends and happen to be great producers as well. I remember playing this for the first time, and the unexpected excitement from the crowd is priceless. The sweet trumpet break fits perfectly with the nasty ragga drop.

Sleepy Tom & Anna Lunoe Join On ‘Pusher’

Fresh off the heels of his mini-tour, Vancouver-based producer Sleepy Tom (pictured) teams up with fellow Fool's Gold favorite Anna Lunoe for their new original, Pusher.

The combination of Sleepy Tom's charismatic sound and Lunoe's stand-out vocals is one worth listening to. While the original and club versions are similar to each other, the club version has a little extra bit of percussion that gives the tune a slightly groovier feel. Sleepy Tom consistently manages to improve release after release, and his latest is a worthy addition to the Fool's Gold catalog.
