Music Monday: The Brig, Young Thieves, Bok Nero & Shizz Lo, Eli & Fur, Boys Of Fall, and Sian

Melodic maestro The Brig continues his conquest, unleashing his debut Circus Records EP ‘Pirate’s Quest.’ Following the epic releases of “Bounce Dealer,” “Feel Free,” and “Mind Changer” on the esteemed imprint, it’s hard to think of a time he wasn’t flying the flag for the historic London bass label.

Making waves comparable to that of the fearsome Kraken, he’s enjoyed the continual support of Spotify via their ‘Dubstep Don’ and ‘Nasty Bits’ playlists, as well as love from The Chainsmokers playing “Take A Fall” at the AT&T Block Party, through to Zeds Dead and Reid Speed spinning “Feel Free” on their respective radio stations. So, prepare for four tracks of sub punches and uninhibited excitement – Bass ahoy!

 

New York City-based Young Thieves have signed with InVogue Records. The band’s debut single “Skinny Dip” is out now. Young Thieves EP is slated for a fall release and is produced by Matt Squire (Panic! at the Disco, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry).

The EP is full of pop anthems that will be stuck in your head from first listen. Young Thieves feature Alexandra Amor on vocals and guitarists Dmitry Libman & Andrew Lynch.

Philadelphia lyricist Bok Nero teams up with producer Shizz Lo on Dim Mak single “Hood Anthem.” The booming collaboration exemplifies Nero’s signature #HoodEDM brand, with free-flowing rhymes, spit rapidly over explosive bass drops. “Hood Anthem” follows Bok’s Hood EDM mixtape (Mixed by Shizz Lo), as well as recent appearances on Bear Grillz’s Demons album, Riot Ten’s Hype or Die: Sun City EP, and Max Styler’s Supernatural EP.

Bok Nero and Shizz Lo have taken North America by storm over the past few months,  traveling alongside Dim Mak for festival performances at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Montreal’s Bal en Blanc and Miami Music Week.

Eli Noble and Jennifer Skillman made their first steps into the music industry as teenage songwriters, recruited to powerhouse collective Xenomania where they wrote lyrics for some of the world’s biggest pop artists. It wasn’t long before their passion for electronic music led them away from pop, and into London’s club scene, where they quickly made a name for themselves as DJs.

In the six years since they broke out with early single ‘You’re So High’, Eli & Fur have been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Annie Mac, and Danny Howard. Their melodic tech-house sets, peppered with their own vocals, have seen them become regulars at the legendary Ants parties in Ibiza whilst also appearing at huge festivals like Coachella, Tomorrowland, and Ultra Miami.

 

Detroit, Michigan’s Boys Of Fall join an all-star list of guests on Kayzo’s new album ‘Unleashed.’

“Our Times Run Out,” the band’s collaboration with the rising LA-based producer/DJ is one of 15 other tracks on the LP which features contributions from Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, Bless The Fall, Our Last Night, Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire, Of Mice & Men, Underoath, Frank Zummo and more.

Elite electronic tastemaker and Octopus Recordings founder Sian has just released his new EP Ultraviolet 2.0, out now on mau5trap. Following the project’s first component, Ultraviolet 1.0, Sian satisfies listeners with the second installment. Ultraviolet 2.0 further showcases Sian’s techno versatility with tracks heavily influenced by industrial, darkwave, synth-wave and classical electro. His ever-evolving sounds flow throughout each track with his implementation of acid sounds and varying sound design techniques.

The first track “Planets” starts off the EP with a heavy bassline and eerie melody. “Opium” follows with booming and cynical basslines, and “Nitro” takes us home with a throbbing bassline and dark experimental vibes exuding from every sound.
