Mustard Pimp's New Album: No Title or Purpose. OUT NOW!

Mustard Pimp's new album 'No Title or Purpose' was released yesterday, October 25th, on all major online music stores, through infamous Dim Mak Records. I recommend you take your time to listen to the tracks below and then click here to purchase. The link is for the Deluxe version, which has all the previously released remixes for Money Shot, Catch Me, and ZHM, which if you don't have you should most definitely get NOW!

The album features some great and interesting collaborations with Blatta & Inesha, Dirtyphonics, Chali 2na, Alec Empire and many others. There is definitely something for everyone in Mustard Pimp's latest production, some might even go as far as categorizing some tracks as dubstep or hip hop, all of course imbued with the duo's own sound and aggressiveness. There is definitely a heavier use of vocals than in their previous productions, which to some might not be ideal. But where 'Wide Eyes' might be a new genre in which the duo is tapping, there are still tracks like 'Radio Techno Allah' that remind me of the first time I heard 'Gold'. Overall, it is great album and if you like Mustard Pimp you will not be disappointed. Enjoy the tracks!

As a little bonus, check out one my favorite tracks of this year as well as a great video. A video, which by the way, is receiving a lot of extra attention in light of the similarities it has with Duck Sauce's video released the same day as 'No Title or Purpose.'

Mustard Pimp and DJ Antention, you already know this is going to be a track to get violent to.

Justice's New LP in Justice's Own Words

Justice's latest LP 'Audio, Video, Disco' has probably been the most anticipated album of the year, and probably the subject of most debate among the french duo's fans. Not surprisingly, to those looking for Cross Pt. 2 the album did not cut it. Nonetheless, it is important to recognize that there is very high quality work and production value behind some of those tracks. I could sit here and argue either side of the argument all night long, but it doesn't really matter. You already listened to the tracks and have made up your own mind. You already know how much you love/hate it, and how stoked/disappointed you are that they took a different approach to production than they did with Cross. Feel like asking Justice why the change? Well, here is what they have to say about it (at least what Xavier has to say, Gaspard seems to quietly agree):

We Want Monkey Now! (But Will Settle For Soon): Haezer's Upcoming 'Monkey EP'

We have already established pretty well who the fuck is Haezer in these pages, so I am going to get straight to the point. We all heard Haezer's banger Monkey back in 2010 (if you haven't take a few and click HERE before proceeding), we know the track is hard to say the least. The good news is that CRUX Records is releasing an EP with remixes by Pelussje, You Killing Me, Doc Trashz, Brian Cox, Shax, and Andy's Ill. In other words it is going to be a sick EP. If you don't want to take my word for it here two good reasons to be excited:

Monkey (Haezer) - PELUSSJE stalkeRMX -PREVIEW- out soon on CRUX! by Pelussje (This track is going to be fucking HUGE!)

HAEZER - Monkey (You Killing Me Remix) "OUT SOON" by You Killing Me

CRUX Records hasn't set a solid date for the release of this EP, but we will keep you updated as info becomes available.

In the meantime here is one BONUS upcoming track:

Dropping on October 27, only a few days away, you can't miss this track. It really lives up to the standards set by both Freakz Me Out Records and You Killing Me's consistently solid production. Also, I am really hoping for another Belzebass remix.

Check out the preview below and get ready to hit Beatport this Thursday.

VNNR - What?

Thank god people remember what hard electro is supposed to sound like. If you follow what we do here around TCHNCRCY Music we've put up some awesome remixes VNNR's put down in the past. We're talking Oddworld's "Kortelas", Despuis91's "Erothiq", and most importantly, TCHNCRCY favorite, Irish Steph's "Power Pt. 2".  Now we come to bring you the newest hit from the boy from Belgium, WHAT? This EP is crazy heavy. The original is hands down my favorite off the release, courteously released by label Lektroluv I might add, but Modek put's his shine on the song in regular fashion while half of Hey Today!,  now known as Nickel, almost may have stolen the show with a few more flowing synths and a bit less distortion. Of course if you like the original, you'll still enjoy Dr. Lektroluv's own up tempo take on the track. But you're all big boys and girls. Make up you're own minds. Lektroluv has been kind enough to preview the whole EP on soundcloud, lovingly provided by your's truly below. Check it out, get your head right, and if you have any sense go grab the tracks over at Beatport so you can start crushing rooms.

Speaking of people who know what hard electro sounds like and crushing rooms, Identity made it's second to last stop up here in the NW by the way of the Gorge in WA. Among some big names that you should already know, I want to focus up on our boy Drivepilot and his killer set on the Dim Mak Stage. You can catch his latest release with footage right here. Get ready for special things people. Very special things.

What's New?: Justice

For those of you who know us, you already know TCHNCRCY loves Justice. And if you're like me, you've already have heard this track up and down. I'm excited for the new album. These dudes are heavy hitters and we all know it. Civilization was awesome for me. Audio Video Disco is great as well. People talk about the underwhelming feel you get from the first listen but these songs are built to last. More importantly, they fit pretty much any set. I'm excited for the LP and this is a taste. Get ready.

New Ep by The "S" - Yuk It Up

Tell me you aren't feeling it. Summer closing out and all the producers that have been hidden away in their dark rooms finding that new sound that's going to crush it when the cold winter months hit are about to bust out on to the scene. So I'm here to bring you the first of many great tracks. The S, long friends of TCHNCRCY, just dropped one of the best EP's I've heard in a long time. Welcome to Yuk It Up. I've been waiting to hear some original stuff after their remix of "Prelude" caught my heavy hitters list and landed on repeat. And I'm not trying to mess with you. This new EP is absolute fire. I want to give you a specific time to really listen for in the songs but if you aren't hooked in the first 30 seconds you might as well pack your bags and go home. Personally I love "I Feel You" as my favorite but "Yuk It Up" is more than listenable. It's downright  amazing. This is why I'm bringing it to you. The songs hit hard without being pretentious and can definitely get a floor moving. I honestly didn't even look up whether the boys had put up anything after I got the EP because it's just that god damn good. However, as luck would have it they have a preview up for free on soundcloud, just because they're awesome like that. If you don't love the S already, listen. If you do, go buy the EP. Oh and by the way, our friendly killers at Mahtrasher Recorcds are putting out the EP. Never forget who brought you the best. Thank you Andrew. Winter's coming to the States, and this is the music to warm up to.
