Karma Fields Debuts On Monstercat With ‘Build The Cities’

Newcomer Karma Fields took the Monstercat family by surprise in February by siezing control of the label's Twitch podcast and makes the arrival official with Build The Cities featuring Kerli.

You might remember Kerli from her flirtatious performance in SNBRN's own debut original Raindrops. Not much can be said of Karma Fields though, at least until he or she develops past the ever-popular "mysterious producer" stage.

In the meantime, pick up the upbeat and funky Build The Cities here, and watch the video below.

The Rinse 02

Welcome back to our Wednesday feature series The Rinse, where we showcase the week's biggest new drum & bass tunes. For this sophomore episode, we hit multiple sub-genres with selections from Wilkinson, Dimension, Cyantific, Calyx & Teebee, and DRS & Enei. If there is a particular track that you've been rinsing excessively and think should have been included in this week's edition of The Rinse, drop it in the comments below and it may find its way into next week's episode. Without further ado, are you ready for some bloodclot jungle techno?


The Prodigy - Wild Frontier (Wilkinson Remix)

Recently debuted by Mistajam on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Wilkinson's remix of The Prodigy's Wild Frontier is stamped and bonafied dancefloor business. While very little information is available about this remix currently, there will likely be an official announcement prior to the release of The Prodigy's full-length album The Day Is My Enemy on March 30. Follow Wilkinson's Facebook page for emerging details.

Calyx & TeeBee - A Day That Never Comes (Original Mix) [RAM]

Calyx & TeeBee have been silent for quite some time, laying relatively dormant last year except for their massive mixed set chronicled on Fabriclive 76. In true veteran fashion, the duo have reemerged with an brand new EP featuring the absolutely gargantuan track A Day That Never Comes. With hairsplitting production and Larry Con's vocals, this tune is an instant classic. Due out on 3/8, A Day That Never Comes and AA-side track Snakes & Ladders can be pre-ordered by clicking here.

Seba - Inside Yourself (Original Mix) [Secret Operations]

Swedish producer Seba has crafted a sinister brand of rollers all his own since debuting almost 15 years ago. His subtle methods of creating tension are present in his latest tune Inside Yourself, enclosing the listener in a tightly confined space of muted pads, heavy bass, and relentless drums. Out via Seba's own imprint Secret Operations, Inside Yourself is packaged alongside 2014's Berberian Sound and available right here on Beatport.

Dimension - Jet Black (Original Mix) [MTA]

One of 2014's break-through artists, Dimension keeps the pressure going into 2015 with his brand new tune Jet Black on MTA Records. Razor-sharp production and sexy vocals landed this track onto Friction's BBC Radio 1Xtra broadcast a few weeks ago and has been getting rinsed from all the top heads including Wilkinson, Netsky, and Sigma, among many others. Pick up Jet Black and AA-side tune Whip Slap right here on Beatport.

Cyantific - Water Mark (Original Mix) [Viper]

Cyantific notches another release for the mighty Viper Recordings, delivering a peak-time workout by the name of Water Mark. Water Mark is built around a squelchy, growling mid-bass, and keeps feet moving with a variety of breaks throughout the course of the tune. Click here to head over to Beatport to pick up the track. Also, make sure to catch Cyantific at Viper Recordings' first live show at Electric Brixton on March 6. Tickets and info are available here.

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.
