After teasing the world with “Glocks” feat. SAYMYNAME just a few weeks ago, Riot Ten has finally dropped his debut full-length studio album ‘Hype or Die: Nightmares’. The ten-track LP is a bass masterpiece, exploring multiple facades of the genre with help from some of rap and dance’s hottest names. From the slow and heavy “Hyphy” with YDG to the hip-hop party starter “Freaky” ft. Whokilledkenny to the assaulting, robot-bass bomb “Showdown” with Throwdown ft. Atarii; Riot Ten wraps his hands around the listener’s throat and takes them on a wild ride that’s not for the faint of heart. To celebrate the release of the album, Riot Ten embarked on his Hype or Die tour in August and will relentlessly hit city after city in North America and Canada, ending with a few stops in Australia through the New Year in 2020. Riot Ten’s Hype Or Die 2019 Tour also features a crew of supporting bass artists including Delta Heavy, GG MAGREE, Sharps, Stoutty, Throwdown, Vampa, Walter Wilde and Yakz on select dates. With a stacked lineup and the debut album released, this is bound to be one of the most insane tours in recent history.
“This album is literally who I am as a musician. It means everything to me. I’ve put out countless EP’s over the last 3 years, way too many singles to even count, so to finally deliver a full-length album is a defining moment for my career and growth as an artist. This album will showcase my roots, as well as my energy, and I can’t wait to share it with the world.” – Riot Ten
Riot Ten is best known for his breakout single “Rail Breaker,” which held down a place on the Beatport Dubstep Top Ten chart for almost half a year and continues to be one of the most played-out records in dance music over 2 years later. Even across genres, fans of The Chainsmokers will recognize Riot Ten’s “F*ck It” as the track they opened every show with while on their massive “Memories Do Not Open” tour. After those early successes, the American producer dropped his debut EP with Dim Mak called “Hype Or Die: The Dead” in February 2018, recording a Top 10 debut on the iTunes Dance Album charts. Riot Ten followed up with a second EP “Hype Or Die: Genesis” to coincide with his 40+ city “Hype Or Die 2018 Tour,” selling out shows across the US in nearly every major market. Although he’s a gamer geek at heart, Riot Ten also knows how to throw a party, having performed live sets at popular festivals including Coachella, EDC, Electric Zoo, Nocturnal Wonderland, Lost Lands, and more. Keep an eye out for more new music and exciting appearances from Riot Ten coming later this year!

Featuring some of the most insane basslines and serrating synths known to humankind, this track has already been dominating the dubstep scene thanks to support from heavyweights Excision, Carnage, NGHTMRE, Svdden Death, ATLiens, and more. One such video of “Womp Womp” being dropped during a live set went viral on Twitter, racking up thousands of retweets and likes – and increasing curiosity as to the artists behind dubstep’s hottest track. One thing is for certain – with the festival season beginning at the close of this month, you can expect to hear “Womp Womp” at bass stages everywhere from Miami to Vegas and beyond.
Orlando-based DJ RATED R is known to his friends simply as “Frankie,” but he’s about to become one of the most talked-about names in electronic music. “Womp Womp” is putting RATED R firmly on the map, though he’s already performed as direct support for artists like GTA, ATLiens, and Megladon, making his live debut at WMC in Miami. His love of music began with playing the drums, which can still be heard in the prominent kickdrums of his bass music. Teaming up with RATED R is Daniel Pacheco – better known as VRG–who has been making music since he was only 11 years old. VRG first found his calling in the Jersey Club scene with his Re-VIP to Boombox Cartel’s “Jefe VIP,” which has been played out by some of the world’s most renowned DJs.

Prepare to enter the matrix with Au5 and Nytrix‘s brand new release “Always In A Nightmare”, the powerful follow-up to their first collaboration “Only in a Dream”. Through cinematic soundscapes that create a video game-esque sonic journey through light into the dark and back, the single bends both genres and minds. Au5 delivers a combination of glittering melodies and electro and trap-influenced basslines that serve as the captivating backdrop to Nytrix’s equally stunning vocals. “Always In A Nightmare” showcases both artists’ respective talents, which have only gotten better since their original team-up. The official music video takes the track’s digital reality inspired sounds one step further, creating a real audiovisual experience for fans. Let’s hope Au5 and Nytrix make this series a three-peat! “Always In A Nightmare” is out now on Monstercat; check out what both artists have to say about the new track below:
“Working with Au5 is always an artistically expanding experience. I feel like we both really aim to make a story through soundscape and lyric. In a way, when we made these songs, it was almost like working on a large painting. It was also fascinating to make Part 2 of a song. I have never done that before.” – Nytrix.
“Upon hearing the acapella, I was immediately inspired to get to work. The song kind of writes itself when I hear a vocal acapella that I strongly resonate with. Collaborating with Nytrix is always a blast. We tend to gravitate towards a similar sonic aesthetic, and we both have a strong artistic vision. I’m looking forward to seeing what our next big project beholds!” – Au5STREAM/DOWNLOAD
LA-based producer and singer Nytrix has crafted a signature future bass sound that has found a home on labels such as Monstercat, NCS, Dim Mak, and Proximity. He first exploded onto the scene in 2015 with his debut EP “Take Me Higher,” which climbed the Billboard Dance Chart to #7 and featured remixes by the likes of R3HAB, Sikdope, Dave Aude and D.O.D. His love for visual art is evident in the music videos for his tracks, which he directs and edits himself. The video for “Take Me Higher” aired on MTV clubland, broke into the Top 100 Chart on Beatport and was featured on Tiesto’s “Clublife” radio show. Nytrix is also vocally skilled, lending his voice to the successful viral hit “Stay Here Forever,” which has amassed over 1.5M views on YouTube. This triple threat has been expanding his imprint by opening for heavyweights like Carnage, Afrojack, and Kesha, as well as performing at venues such as Sundown Music Festival alongside, R3HAB, Cedric Gervais, Tommy Trash and NGHTMRE. Austin Collins, better known as Au5, has been releasing music for over 9 years, with over 100 songs released on Wakaan, NCS, Monstercat. Music has always been a lifelong love affair for Au5, who started playing piano at the age of 4, which he quickly followed with bass guitar and music production. After touring with Infected Mushroom, Liquid Stranger, Seven Lions, and more, Au5 has created a reputation as a skilled artist whose sound is constantly evolving. Keep your eye on both Au5 and Nytrix – two names we expect to be in many headlines this year.
