Carnage has returned to his roots today with the release of his first EDM track of the year, “Blitzkrieg”, feat. Nazaar. The heavy-hitting, rapid-fire track showcases the best of the heavyweight legend’s signature sounds with heavy bass complemented with mechanical synths at a decidedly heart-pounding pace. The crown jewel of “Blitzkrieg” comes in the form of its vocal interlude, which is half-inspiring and half-irreverent, but above all, encourages Carnage’s legion of loyal listeners to be themselves despite societal pressures. “Blitzkrieg” follows Carnage’s release of hip-hop tracks over the past year via EMPIRE/Heavyweight. His previous tracks “Wait For Me” ft. G-Eazy, Wiz Khalifa and “Letting People Go” ft. Prinze George received the attention of Complex, TIME, Entertainment Weekly and countless others.

Carnage, who is based in Las Vegas, established himself as the reigning champion of Festival Trap and Hard Bass music with early hits, later becoming one of the first artists to transition electronic music into hip-hop, rap and urban styles. Carnage founded his label, Heavyweight Records, in 2017 as a home for hard bass and hip-hop music. Since then, he has gathered a formidable crew of cronies on the imprint. After taking a break from music in 2018 to focus on his mental health, he is now returning to his EDM roots with “Blitzkrieg.”
Nazaar is a rising Arab artist who took his name from the Urdu word for “evil eye.” The El Paso based producer creates dark, vibrant melodies grounded in traditional Arab and Pakistani styles, built up with complex, aggressive synths and broken down with bone-shattering bass. From creating music in a small room at boarding school to having his tracks played out at some of the largest dance music festivals in the world, Nazaar’s natural talent is undeniable. His music continues to keep listeners intrigued and engaged. He released an official remix for The Chainsmokers’ “Sick Boy” via Columbia Records and, just recently, dropped “The Legacy” EP on Never Say Die Records.

Showtek Send Important Message With New Single “Show Some Love”
Dutch duo Showtek brings a message of hope to the current tumultuous global landscape with their new track “Show Some Love” ft. sonofsteve, out now on their label Skink. Opening with a classic progressive buildup, Showtek quickly proves their ability to step outside of the genre by incorporating a deep, funky bassline and organic instrumental melodies to the track’s soulful vocals. With lyrics like “if there is just one word that will always win, no matter where you’re from, the color of your skin,” the duo uses their music to spread a message of inclusivity, positivity, and love that has always been at the heart of dance music culture – and the world needs it now more than ever. True to Showtek’s dynamic style, “Show Some Love” is an emotional vocal dance track that also resonates on the dance ﬂoor. Read on for the inspiration behind the new single:
“With this song we’re continuing to spread a positive message through our music, that hopefully brings people together in a time of divide. This year has been turbulent for everybody. Not only because of the pandemic, but also because of the systemic racism that has ﬁnally been brought to light. We felt it was time to spread some love and give the people something positive to listen to. We want our fans to know that we love them no matter what skin color, religion, sexuality or gender. We believe in a world where everybody is treated equally and where you can live together in our diﬀerences, that’s what makes us all beautiful.”
Brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen – better known together as Showtek – have made a name for themselves in the international dance scene with their high-energy, beat-driven style that has produced many a festival anthem. Their initial success in the hardstyle realm with tracks like “FTS” made them a household name, and they have continued to develop and evolve their style into the dynamic, genre-crossing sound we know and love today. Their hits such as “Believer” with Major Lazer (which is certiﬁed Gold), “Booyah” or “Bad” with David Guetta, their single “We Like To Party,” and their cover of Moby’s “Natural Blues” have become dance classics heard around the world. The brothers lead their label Skink, which has releases from the likes of Henry Fong, Gammer, Sidney Samson, MAKJ, and more. Showtek has proven again that they are nowhere near being ﬁnished their musical journey, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

John Lynx is no stranger to producing euphoric basslines and emotional-filled masterpieces. With that in mind, the Chicagoan producer joins forces with Sergi Yaro to blow up the speakers once again. Effectively, “Dreams” is the kind of pop-centric EDM paired with excellent vocal hooks that help you stay motivated.
