Bass heavyweight Riot Ten flexes his versatility on the 7-track EP, ‘Hype or Die: Emergence‘. Featuring a VIP mix of the festival anthem “Rail Breaker” and collaborations alongside DIESEL (aka Shaquille O’Neal), Whales, and Bok Nero, the EP presents a mature palette of sounds, blending future bass, hardstyle and Latin instrumentation amongst his signature dubstep drops.
The Emergence EP is Riot Ten’s first multi-track release since his successful “Hype or Die: Nightmares” studio album and the subsequent deluxe package, which followed last year. It arrives off the heels of his recent performance at one of the first car raves in North America last month in Houston, TX. New tracks “Bring It Back” with DirtySnatcha and “Buck” featuring Bok Nero each integrate elements of dubstep and trap, complete with grimy, heavy bass, and serrating mechanical synths. “Ultimate” is a heavy-hitting collaboration with basketball legend DIESEL (aka Shaquille O’Neal) and viral Houston rapper T-Wayne. “Narcos” with Madreckless contains the pulsating tempo of psytrance fused with bass elements. “Save You” sees Riot Ten team up with Whales and his cousin Megan Stokes for a rich, future bass original, showcasing a softer side to his sound. As a special treat, he closes the EP with VIP renditions of “Save You” and “Rail Breaker,” the latter of which remains a fan favorite around the world, boasting over 7 million on-demand streams. Wielding plenty of chaotic bass nuances, the EP lives in the same “Hype or Die” underworld, but with a heightened sense of urgency.
“I wanted to create something that was different from my previous bodies of work, yet still embodied that “Hype Or Die” aura. I named my EP ‘Emergence,’ due to the chaos in the world now coming to light. It is symbolic of how many have felt for some time now..and so we have risen. I stand in solidarity with those fighting injustice.” – Riot Ten
Born and raised in El Paso, TX, Riot Ten exploded into the world of EDM at the young age of 22. Joining the Dim Mak Records family in 2017, with additional music out on Never Say Die, Insomniac, Bassrush and Excision’s “Rottun Records”, Riot Ten blasted off with four #1 top 100 dubstep singles and his music can be heard around the world from the likes of DJ Snake, Zeds Dead, The Chainsmokers, Excision and many more. The 2017 single “Fuck It” became a staple on The Chainsmokers’ “Memories Do Not Open” tour. This success helped pave the way for “Rail Breaker”, his global smash in 2017, to become one of the most played out dubstep songs of the last decade. The single continues to see support at nearly every major festival from the biggest names in dance music. Following the release of “Rail Breaker”, Riot Ten dropped his debut EP with DIM MAK called Hype Or Die: The Dead in 2018, which recorded a top 10 debut on the iTunes “dance album” charts, a feat seldom seen by an artist in the genre. He recorded another top 10 debut on the iTunes charts in 2019 with his debut album Hype Or Die: Nightmares. Outside of the music, Riot Ten has continued to record sell-out shows domestically and internationally, touring the infamous “Hype Or Die” brand for its 2nd straight year. He has also played EDC Las Vegas, Coachella, Nocturnal Wonderland, Electric Zoo, EDC Mexico, Lost Lands, EDC Orlando, Global Dance Festival, Electric Forest, Bass Canyon, Imagine Music Festival and more.

“WAKE UP”, The New Effort From JAD3D & Demitri Medina Via Careless Records
Who doesn’t like dark and melodic beats? JAD3D‘s properly titled single “WAKE UP”, released via Careless Records, really gave me a buzz. Trust me, it feels like a new strain of Dubstep that’s accompanied by passionate vocals from Demitri Medina, which brim with emotive impact. With this in mind, this piece is not based solely on wobble bass and electrifying synths. Conversely, the hard-hitting lyrics also carry a deep message.
Inspired by a life story of how recovery can take you down a certain path, this tune provides a moment of reflection. In terms of sound and approach, it dabbles in uplifting dynamics. It becomes crystal clear, that the softness and loudness of the music are the fuel behind this banger. In some way, “WAKE UP” bears a certain resemblance to those classic Pop-Punk/Emo hits that all 2000s kids used to love. However, instead of guitars, here you have heavy bass-driven tones and big drops. Do us a favor and take a listen below. You’ll thank us after.

Australian powerhouse GG Magree teams up with In Her Own Words lead singer Joey Fleming on “Nervous Habits”. Magree’s sonic ambition is on full display, as she duets tight hooks over melodic Dubstep instrumentation. Although GG Magree has made a name for herself through her raucous bass music, “Nervous Habits” showcases a vulnerable side through personal, refined lyrics. Both GG and Joey flex their singing chops on the single, balancing honeyed lines with angst-ridden verses that roll off like a conversation between a star-crossed couple. A deep synth bass lurks beneath the vocals, which drops into a heavy and intense breakdown that feels like wading through the darkness of this particular relationship. Together Magree and Fleming fuse raw emotion, breathtaking vocals, and bone-shaking bass to create a powerful Dim Mak debut.
“Everyone has that one love that they can’t break away from… ‘Nervous Habits’ is a story about mine.” – GG Magree
GG’s indisputable talent as a DJ, producer, and singer/songwriter has made her a triple threat in the electronic music industry. She first made waves in 2016 with her vocal debut “Frontlines,” in collaboration with NGHTMRE & Zeds Dead, which has amassed over 28M streams on Spotify alone. GG is also well known for her reload-worthy remix of Billie Eilish’s “Wish You Were Gay,” in addition to original singles like “I Wanna Lose You,” “Ghost” with Jauz, and “Flatline” alongside Sullivan King. In her native Australia and beyond, Magree has become a highly sought after artist known for bringing electric energy to audiences worldwide; by far the best way to experience GG is at a live show. She has graced the stage with the likes of Pharrell, DJ Snake, Wu-Tang Clan, Zeds Dead, Virtual Self, Iggy Azalea, NGHTMRE, and many more.
Joey Fleming is the lead singer of the American alt-punk band In Her Own Words, based in Los Angeles. With roots in the underground punk rock scene, Fleming packs high intensity and angst into heartfelt lyrics and melodies to make his listeners feel what he feels. He was introduced to creating and writing at a very young age, which has allowed him to evoke unparalleled passion and unique personality within his music. Fleming has released multiple EPs and albums via In Her Own Words since 2013 and now is breaking into the electronic scene with his feature on “Nervous Habits.”

Heavyweight Records Drops Six Heavy-Hitting New Tracks Via ‘Lockdown’ EP
Carnage‘s Heavyweight Records camp has just released their brand new ‘Lockdown’ EP, filled with top-notch fresh bass music curated entirely during live demo sessions on Twitch. The six-track EP runs the gamut of bass music, from 2AM & Elusion’s bone-shaking, menacing “Down” to the rapid-fire snares of Fito Silva’s “Indian Riddim” and Steez’s mechanical, synth-driven “To The Face.” Rounding out the second half of the EP, “Hit a Lick” delivers hip-hop influenced bass by Freaky x Hay!, Elle’s “Ah Shit” presents as one of the more melodic tracks but quickly shows its darker side. Zoobstool’s “Block Huggaz” makes for a heavy-hitting, apocalyptic finale fitting of the current state of the world. The Heavyweight team selected all six tracks for the release while livestreaming the demo sessions on Twitch; listeners could comment about which tracks they liked best, bringing a creative new way for a record label to connect with fans when current circumstances have live shows on hold. Tune into the “Lockdown” EP to bring Heavyweight into your home!
Since the beginning of his music career, Carnage has made a name through breaking the rules and staying true to himself. The Las Vegas-based artist established himself as the reigning champion of hard bass and trap music with early hits, later being 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, from the masked mastermind GRAVEDGR, Gommi, Sludge, Lil Texas, and more.

GRAVEDGR Drops “6 FEET UNDER” Remix Album + A Livestream From A Cemetery
GRAVEDGR is back to his hellish ways with the release of a brand new remix album of his debut LP “6 FEET UNDER”, an exceptional treat for his equally nefarious fans: an album-themed live stream from, you guessed it, a cemetery. Featuring seventeen heavy-hitting variations of hit tracks like “KAMIKAZE,” “WARDOGZ” and “JESSE JAMES,” listeners will delight in the serrating synths, bone-shaking bass and gut-wrenching drops of the remix version of “6 FEET UNDER.” GRAVEDGR called upon some of bass music’s most prominent players to place their own dark touches on his music, such as Riot Ten, SLUDGE, NCRYPTA, Lil Texas, KRISCHVN, DITHER, WARFACE, SICKMODE, SLUDGE, to name a few, including GRAVEDGR’s own VIP Remix of “Maria” with Junkie Kid. Tune in to Twitch for a nightmarish live stream of GRAVEDGR premiering the album from a cemetery on the LP’s release date, June 19.
Take one look at GRAVEDGR, and it’s easy to see where his name comes from – constantly donning black attire and his signature face mask, it’s no surprise that his day job is literally digging graves. All the time spent contemplating mortality must have inspired his musical sound, which can be summed up as simultaneously scary, melodic and hard. His wildly popular debut single “RAMPAGE” has amassed almost 15 million streams on Spotify alone, placing him firmly on the map, and was quickly followed up by the equally relentless “JESSE JAMES,” “BE WARY,” “KAMIKAZE” and more. After the release of his first studio album “6 FEET UNDER” in early 2020, GRAVEDGR earned even more notoriety for his hard-hitting, mind-bending production style as featured on tracks like “FICK DICH” and the debut album’s title track “6 FEET UNDER.” Stay tuned for more releases coming soon from this mysterious producer!
