RIOT Releases Dark, Stylistic Sci-Fi Thriller Concept Debut Album ‘Dogma Resistance’
Monstercat veterans RIOT introduce their most epic project to date, the storyline-based, immersive sonic journey known as ‘Dogma Resistance’. In the form of a ten-track studio album and accompanying visual comic book by company HERØ, RIOT brings to life the story of Raymond Colt and his descendants in a fusion of past and future. ‘Dogma Resistance’ begins in the year 1936, when Colt and his sidekick accidentally uncover a nefarious force of evil that the world has never seen before. Fast-forward to the year 2045 and this evil, known as Deinos, has been ruling the world for over a century. Follow along as Colt’s descendants rage a war to fight for all of the humankind against the alien enemy, an adventure that will test them to their very limits and brings them into contact with things of legend, such as the protector of the long-lost city of Atlantis.

Each of RIOT’s ten tracks evokes a different phase of the plotline, beginning with the adventurous and assaulting “Jungle Fury” and the drum & bass influenced “Disorder,” which signifies the rebirth of Deinos. RIOT explores a myriad of sound and genre inspirations on the album, from eastern exotic instrumentals in “Desert to Desert” to fury-filled bass in the climactic “Overkill.” A storyline of this complexity is truly an artistic achievement, something that RIOT has been hard at work on for quite some time. Read below to check out what the duo has to say about ‘Dogma Resistance’:
“‘Dogma Resistance’ is an album we have been working on for well over a year and a half now. The production from start to finish was one of the toughest challenges as producers that we have faced. Creating a seamless storyline in electronic music can sometimes be tough, we wanted to give the fans something more, something they would want to listen from start to finish on repeat over and over again. Allowing the fan to create their own vision and storyline for the music, becoming imaginative and creative, which as a musician, is one of the best feelings a fan can give you. Thank you so much to everyone who has followed this journey. It means a lot to us!” – RIOT
Israeli-born, Los Angeles-based duo Tom Davidson and Daniel Magid – better known as RIOT – have built their brand by fusing the extremes of progressive melodies and heavy basslines into a sound that leaves an unforgettable impression. RIOT’s music has found homes on labels such as Monstercat, Dim Mak, and Insomniac Records, including collaborations with heavyweights SLANDER, Kayzo, and Dirtyphonics. One of their most successful tracks is 2017’s “Wake Up” in collaboration with Kayzo, which has amassed over 23M streams on Spotify and is still currently one of the most-played dubstep tracks on the platform. Their collaboration with SLANDER “You Don’t Even Know Me,” which was featured on SLANDER’s EP “The Headbangers Ball,” has over 5M streams on Spotify and rose to the Top 10 on iTunes Dance Charts. RIOT’s massive remixes for Infected Mushroom, Knife Party, and Pegboard Nerds have placed them at the forefront of the modern bass scene. We predict that the sophisticated, dark sci-fi thriller debut studio album, that is ‘Dogma Resistance’, will make major waves, signaling the beginning of RIOT’s rise to stardom.

Borgore & Tima Dee Come Together For “Way Up” Via Buygore Records
Globally recognized Dubstep DJ & producer Borgore and musician Tima Dee teamed up for the second time to release “Way Up” via Buygore Records.
The Israeli-born, Los Angeles-based Borgore released “Sad B*tch” with Tima Dee in December, followed by a remix pack featuring Aweminus, Tisoki, and more. While Borgore released a number of singles and EPs throughout the course of the pandemic, he is psyched to unveil his latest project with his fanbase far and wide.
In addition to the new single being available on all streaming platforms, the release is accompanied by a music video shot in Tel Aviv.
Dee’s unforgettable lyrics – “Go ahead, go ahead, try to flex on me, you won’t mess, you won’t mess with my energy” – transition into a classic Dubstep filth drop reminiscent of some of Borgore’s earlier sounds, putting him back onto the electronic radar.
Having been in the studio with Dubstep gurus SVDDEN DEATH and Yakz, Pop icons like Miley Cyrus and Bella Thorne, and Hip-Hop superstars G-Eazy, Waka Flocka Flame, and more, Borgore has long attempted to position himself as a creatively fluid artist – existing both outside of the box and in a multitude of industry spheres.
With that being said, Borgore has never catered to a specific genre or fan base – and this upcoming album will be no exception to that rule. He first exploded into the mainstream in 2012 with his breakout single “Decisions,” featuring Miley Cyrus. In July 2014, Borgore released his debut artist album, ‘#NEWGOREORDER,’ debuting at #1 on the iTunes US Dance Charts and peaked at #3 on the Billboard Top Dance & Electronic Albums chart. His discography also comprises the Hip-Hop-heavy The Firest EP with Gucci Mane and THIRTY RACK – and Adventures In Time, an instrumental Jazz EP.
Following the release of “Way Up,” at the end of this month, Borgore has a few additional projects up his sleeve that have yet to be announced.
One of the earliest pioneers in the global Dubstep scene, Israeli-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ Borgore has commanded the dance music world for the past decade via his “Gorestep” sound – today counting upwards of 352 million streams across his discography. Founded in 2010, Borgore’s Buygore Records has released music from electronic heavyweights like Dotcom, Ookay, and Carnage and has helped internationalize whole genres. In May 2017, Buygore launched Fresh Blood, a sub-label that discovers and develops rising artists who are pushing the boundaries of dance music. Recognized as the Best Dubstep DJ by LA Weekly, Borgore has performed at every global music festival – including Coachella, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, and Ultra Music Festival, in addition to headlining multiple international solo shows and worldwide tours.
Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tima Dee fell in love with the dance music scene and could be found at shows and festivals across the region. Recognized for her voice after just a few acoustic showcases, her first released song featured on a dance record quickly gained hundreds of thousands of streams. Labels and publishers took notice – and a few months later, she had signed her first deal and moved to Los Angeles. Tima found success lending her voice to a wide variety of dance genres as her name began to grow within the scene. She soon found herself collaborating and releasing songs with dance music heavyweights such as Tritonal, Dion Timmer, and Borgore. She has amassed well over 50 million streams of her work over the past few years. You can find her voice in the soundtrack for the blockbuster film “Uncharted,” the Oscar-nominated “Audible” and clubs across the globe.

Gammer Drops ‘Better Together’ EP Representing His Evolution
British legend Gammer got together with some of his closest artist friends to release his new EP ‘Better Together,’ which features 9 tracks on which he collaborated with artists such as Hudson Mohawke, Fatman Scoop, Riot Ten, Linney, MYLK, Technikore, Stonebank, and more. The 3 new works include the EP’s opening ominous and hard-hitting “Tech,” in collaboration with Stonebank, as well as the upbeat and bass-heavy “Falling Down” with Technikore and MYLK, and “Underneath,” featuring Linney, a cinematic vocal hardstyle gem. The new tracks complement some of Gammer’s earlier hits, like “Quit” with Hudson Mohawke, “NGMF” with Riot Ten, or “Stampede” with Fatman Scoop, proving that his growth and evolution are constant and that he’s never going out of style. Read on for Gammer’s take on his new project:
“I have always felt like I produced my best music when I work with other talented musicians. Having someone else in the room inspires me. Their skill pushes me to be more inventive and to try new things. It’s how I’ve most evolved since the day I first started creating in tiny studios around England. I had recently felt that I’d hit a bit of a creative wall and wanted to evolve again, and had this realization. So I got in touch with a lot of my closest friends and fellow producers. This EP is the product of that. I am very proud of it and what we have all created together. I believe it represents growth and evolution in the Gammer project in some tracks, as well as occasionally getting me back in touch with the sounds that originally made me smile and want to make music. I hope that anyone who hears “Better Together” will feel some of the excitement that I felt while making it. Additionally, if I am being fully honest, I also love being a tad lazy, and it’s always easier only having to produce half a track” — Gammer
English producer Gammer has become known in the dance circuit for his UK hardcore sound as well as trap and hardstyle, which attracted a new and younger generation of listeners to the heavy-hitting genres. He had become a household name on Monstercat by 2017, known for his timeless party anthems such as “The Drop” or “Party Don’t Stop” and collabs, such as “Quit” with Hudson Mohawke, “Incoming” with Steve Aoki or “Digressions” with Mija. Revered for his musical versatility and high-energy DJ sets, Gammer is a staple at some of the world’s biggest music festivals, including Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, and many more. Gammer’s addictive sound has brought him to the furthest corners of the world. As a storied producer, celebrated DJ, and powerful trendsetter, there’s no one quite like Gammer.

We owed it to ourselves and to our fans. Something about the hybrid of Hip-Hop and Dubstep just felt right. That’s how this EP was born. It’s groovy and super fun for us both to produce and listen to. It’s different from anything we put out before and we’re excited to see how the fans will react to it!” — RIOT
