Prince Fox Is Atlas Bound With ‘Tell Me’ Remix

New York producer Prince Fox (pictured) puts his synth-laden twist on Atlas Bound's smooth Tell Me, and he is giving it away as a free download.

With a mantra "to change that Cut Copy Era," Altas Bound has definitely set forth to challenge their Australian compatriots' electro-pop vibe with their own soulful take on production and songwriting. Prince Fox' remix stays true to the duo's expressive message but adds in some expertly timed synth stabs and atmospheric ornamentation to plump up the original with added bounce.

You can claim your copy at Prince Fox's SoundCloud here.

Stay Plugged In 25: Leon Bolier’s Favorite Free Plugins

In this special installment of Stay Plugged In, Dutch DJ and Producer Leon Bolier looks into his collection and shares three of his favorite free plugins with us plus some tips on how to use them.

As well as being an in-demand DJ, Leon Bolier is known for his many trance and, more recently, deep house productions, including the soon-to-be-released Every Single Piece (listen above). The track will be available in download stores via Spinnin' Deep on March 16.

Without further ado, let's hear from the man himself:


TAL Bitcrusher



There are a ton of bitcrushers out there, but this one does its job in a great way. Most of the time, I am using TAL Bitcrusher as some kind of a limiter--a tip the guys of Mightyfools actually gave me. Works great on the more harsh sounds for me. Slightly cranking up the volume on the bitcrusher and actually bitcrushing a tiny bit works wonders for me. Oh, and I prefer using setting III on this one.

(Available in Windows VST and Mac Audio Units formats)

Free Download

Bionic Delay



Freeware tape delay that does what it says: make great tape delay tails. I am not a Logic user, but I heard it actually emulates one of the Logic tape delays. I usually use it to create those infinite delay tails that self resonate. Great little plugin!

(Available as Bionic Supa Delay in Windows VST format)

Free Download

Echomania



Another tape delay plugin--this one I use if I want to go a bit more crazy timing-wise. The noise and flutter knobs work wonders when you want to spice things up. It's a four-track delay (as opposed to Bionic delay which is two-track) which also means you can add to the craziness this way. Cranking the feedback knob up a notch turns your sound into an ear-piercing infinite loop, so be careful with this. Other than that, it’s a great addition to my plugin collection.

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.
