ShockOne Releases Complex, Experimental 13-Track ‘A Dark Machine’ Album

Published

a dark machine
After much anticipation from recent releases “Run” and “Til Dawn,” Australian artist ShockOne has released his new thirteen-track album ‘A Dark Machine’. Breathtakingly complex, hauntingly poignant and sonically masterful, the album explores a concept few people dare to truly dive into – confronting the darkest parts of ourselves and realizing that our power as humans makes us capable of both great and terrible things. As the album progresses through both psychological stages – from awakening to self-destruction, hopelessness to self-acceptance, ShockOne creates more than just a sonic joyride. ‘A Dark Machine’ is an immersive experience that delves into the complex human psyche while running the gamut of bass music genres with an experimental flair. The album features guest collaborations with ShockOne’s real-life sister, vocalist Reija Lee, as well as Cecil, Cruz Patterson, The Bloody Beetroots and producers Ekko and Sidetrack, who each contribute their unique sound to the whole. No matter what stage of the journey you’re on, you are bound to discover something new and mindblowing on this album. Check out ShockOne’s inspiration below:

‘A Dark Machine’ begins with “Run” and the intro connected to it “Awake”. The whole thing started from the idea I had of the protagonist waking from a dream while finding themselves running, from what exactly, they don’t know, but they are filled with a sense of dread, they do know, however, that if they stop running something terrible will happen. I just had this image of someone waking up running from something, and at the beginning, I wasn’t quite sure what that was myself. As I kept writing and scribbling random phrases and notes down, it started to become clear that what the protagonist is running from is a reflection of their own psyche, their subconscious, perhaps even the darker side of it, and that is essentially what ‘A Dark Machine’ represents. As I continued the writing process, I started to realize this album is basically the story of someone coming to terms with their own mind/subconscious, the good and the bad parts of it. The closing song “Silver & Gold”, is the final conversation between the protagonist and their own subconscious. The eternal conversion we are all having with ourselves that can sometimes get pretty dark. This story is like a dramatization of that, and this album is like a soundtrack to the dystopian art film I have in my head that will never get made! Although the fantastic videos Matsu made for “A Dark Machine”, “Bleed Black” & “Run” are pretty damn close!”

Since his debut in 2009 with “The ShockOne” EP, Karl Thomas has established himself as one of the most exciting bass artists in the scene. He followed up his massively successful debut with 2011’s “Crucify Me,” a drum & bass/dubstep anthem in which he also showed his versatility and talent as a vocalist; this single served as a preview for his first album “Universus.” ShockOne’s most significant break came in 2012 when he released the genre-bending, now-iconic work of art that is “Chaos Theory” featuring Corey Burton. “Chaos Theory” experienced astronomical success, peaking at #2 on Beatport, #1 on Trackitdown, and #1 on iTunes Dance in Australia. This led him through a whirlwind of touring, playing festivals such as Creamfields, the Big Day Out, and Stereosonic, and playing sold-out shows throughout Australia. After listening to ‘A Dark Machine’, we know that ShockOne is bigger, better, and stronger than ever before. Stay tuned for what comes next from this leading Aussie export!

Nicky Romero Remixes Armin van Buuren & Ne-Yo's "Unlove You"
A link-up as epic as Armin van Buuren and NE-YO‘s recent collaboration deserves a remix of equal significance, and that’s exactly what fans are getting. Today, Dutch electronic music powerhouse Nicky Romero offered up a top-notch remix of “Unlove You”, delivering the very best of what dance music has to offer. Unleashing his own touches onto the buzzing “Unlove You,” Nicky Romero pushes out into the night with his club-tailored interpretation. Enhanced with a hands-in-the-air melody and seamless arrangement, this remix is the perfect counterpart of Armin van Buuren and Ne-Yo’s smash hit.

“I’m very happy with this incredible remix from Nicky Romero. I’m a long-time fan of his work, and I feel that he did the original song justice whilst giving it an energetic, mainstage-ready twist of his own. Top-drawer stuff!” – Armin van Buuren

“Armin van Buuren and I have been colleagues for a long time, so it’s about time we started working together. I was in the studio listening to the songs of his album ‘Balance,’ and his track with Ne-Yo struck a chord with me. I coincidentally had a project open that matched the vibe and key of the record perfectly, so it was just meant to be. It’s a magnificent song, and I’m glad I got to make it my own.” – Nicky Romero

After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” (with Krewella) and #1 single “I Could Be The One” (with Avicii), Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collabs with Mike Williams & Amba Shepherd, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, DallasK & XYLØ and Steve Aoki & Kiiara to remixes for the likes of Kygo, Rita Ora, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. All the while showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to touch down across the globe for his incredible live performances, including residencies at Las Vegas’ Hakkasan and Omnia and forthcoming shows at Medusa Festival in Mexico, Temple in San Francisco, Marquee in New York City, Prysm in Chicago and more.

4B And Chris Brown Connect For Emotional Anthem "Did You"
4B
returns with an emotional heart-pounding single with RnB bad boy Chris Brown. Enjoying the success of his latest album Indigo with the Drake-assisted “No Guidance” summer heater, that broke the internet, the Virginia singer comes ready for cuffing season with an emotional break song with brutal honesty accompanied by 4B’s iconic bass melodies with a jersey house twist. “Did You” follows 4B’s previous single “Bang Bang,” where he proves his dynamic ability as a producer while exploring a new sound. Like the song “Atomic Bomb” insinuates, the young LA-based producer is showing no signs of slowing down and means business with his recent string of singles, including “Told You” and the massive Flosstradamus assisted “Blackout.”

STREAM/DOWNLOAD

Robert McKeon Jr., better known as 4B, may only be 26 years old, but he’s already been honing his musical skills for nearly half of his life. The American DJ and producer has relentlessly pursued his signature sound and vision, garnering support from some of the industry’s legends like Skrillex, DJ Snake, Diplo and Tiesto for his unique sound and meticulous production style. His trademark single was “Pop Dat” with Aazar in 2015; the track became one of the most played track songs of the year and topped over 12M streams on Spotify alone, putting 4B firmly on the map as one to be watched in the dance music scene. Since then, he has remixed the likes of Fetty Wap’s “My Way” with Flosstradamus and DJ Snake’s “Middle.” 4B has also earned himself somewhat of a cult following from his electric live performances, which include his wildly popular set at EDC Las Vegas right before ZEDD, where he brought out Soulja Boy as a special guest. Bobby continues to evolve and mature as an artist, and we are excited to see what the next wave of his career brings.

4B‘s upcoming dates:

Nov 23 – EDC Guangdong – Zhuhai, China
Nov 27 – DAER Nightclub – Atlantic City, NJ
Nov 30 – DAER Nightclub – Hollywood, FL
Dec 20 – NOTO – Philadelphia, PA
Dec 28 – Audiotistic – San Bernardino, CA
Dec 31 – Exchange – Los Angeles, CA
Jan 22 – Holy Ship! Wrecked – Port Canaveral, FL
