Knife Party – Haunted House EP

Published

Knife Party breaks their extended silence to bring us Haunted House, a four-track EP that will officially be released in the U.S. May 6th with Warner Music. Knife Party consists of Gareth McGrillen and Rob Swire, respectively hailing from the UK. Originally a side-project to drum & bass septet Pendulum, Knife Party’s first EP 100% No Modern Talking was so successful that it led to the Pendulum’s break-up. Their self-described “seizure music” falls loosely between the electro house and dubstep categories, aka what’s more pretentiously termed “complextro”.

The Knife Party sound has been imitated to no end; Haunted House is a reminder that these two men are veterans of production that stand a cut above the rest. I was particularly struck by the quality of the percussion, which we can likely attribute to Swire & McGrillen’s d&b roots. My personal favorite record was Power Glove, but I suspect the big-room house drop on LRAD will emerge as the popular favorite. The group tweeted yesterday that track 04 Baghdad was replaced with an Internet Friends VIP mix in a last-minute switch. Not sure what’s going on there; deadlines, maybe. I don’t find the  live edit particularly impressive. In any case, prime music to rage to. Get to it.

Crankdat Drops New Single ‘Say It’

Published

on

Crankdat just hooked fans up with a brand new track, “Say It”, which features some melodic and rhythmic drum & bass sounds to accompany strong fluid vocals from Los Angeles based singer songwriter Sara Skinner.

“The production process of ‘Say It’ was absolutely seamless. I produced the beat earlier this year [originally] with no intentions of doing anything with it — sometimes I make very different styles of music for total fun…I sent it to this vocalist I met on the Internet a few months prior, Sara Skinner…the first demo Sara sent back was absolutely GOLD. She did her thing, and she nailed it. Afterwards, I finished processing the vocal and engineering the beat, and thus, ‘Say It’ was born!  – Crankdat.
