Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen have a propensity for composing music that resembles a hailstorm of crazed beats. Oh, and how dope is the last name McGrillen? Totally trumps ‘McLovin’ if you ask me. Anyway, the artists formerly known as Pendulum have made quite a name for themselves among dubheads and die-hard house fans alike. They have seemingly bridged genres and created a vibe that almost all EDM lovers can get down with. And it is with great happiness that I share their latest masterpiece, the “Rage Valley EP,” with EHusky Nation. Offering a smorgasbord of hefty bass and brain-drilling synths, this 4-track tidal wave is not for the faint of heart. From the reggae-inspired dubstep anthem “Bonfire”, to the Congorock-esque electro swagger projected in “Sleaze”, it’s safe to say that Rage Valley will be turning heads and splitting eardrums all around the world. Make sure you check out the tracks below while patiently awaiting the May 28th release:
“You blocked me on Facebook, and now you’re going to die” is a phrase that was made popular by Knife Party’s track “Internet Friends”. Hardwell has taken it upon himself to switch things up a bit, revamping the vocals to say: You don’t like Hardwell on Facebook, and now you’re going to die. How catchy. This is quite an interesting ploy. Could you imagine hearing this in a set? It’s essentially advertising, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. But hey, Facebook likes are everything these days. Beyond that silly edit, the track itself retains its original melody and really doesn’t see any major changes. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like Hardwell could’ve done better for 200k. This is the first review containing any semblance of negative opinion that I can remember on EHusky… It doesn’t feel good, but I had to.

Waking up and seeing a tweet sent by Knife Party announcing a new remix of theirs is a dream come true for many EDM fans out there. Luckily for all of us that fall into that category, that’s exactly what happened today. Knife Party has a knack for taking bleep sounds and making them fit perfectly into their melodies, a feat not easily achieved. Let me be the first to say that they pull it off quite well in this remix. Slated for a March 11th release on UKF, there will also be a remix by Gareth Emery. Keep your ears peeled, this track is about to go maximal crazy.
The original mission of Electro Husky was to spread the good vibes and and energy associated with the Electronic Dance Music genre. The following mix was made with the intention that people would start using it to pre-game, or for parties that do not have a DJ. It’s the ultimate mood-setter if you’re looking to get into the rage frame of mind. There is a free download on the Soundcloud player, and there always will be. Further, there will be more mixes in the future, and possibly a monthly mix highlighting the best tracks from EHusky each month. I have loved all the positive feedback I’ve been getting recently, and I want to thank everyone who likes and follows ElectroHusky. Unfortunately, all I can offer you at this point is the gift of music; I hope that will suffice. Also, special thanks to Jason Paley, who was instrumental in putting this mix together. EHusky’s future looks bright, and I owe it to the fans.
Finally, the 2nd volume of the official ElectroHusky podcast is available. It’s a few minutes longer than the first, and it features a continuous mix about 30 minutes long that was compiled by yours truly.

20.) Yours Tonight (Original Mix) – Barnett Lobel & Sue Cho
Last night before passing out, my tequila-infused brain told me to listen to Porter Robinson’s “Unison”… Maybe that’s why I stayed up til 430. Shortly after the original version ended, I downloaded the Knife Party Remix. The fact that I didn’t already have it was a bit disconcerting. But what are you gonna do. Bottom line: This track hits hard and fast, and is overwhelmingly relentless as it attacks your hearing apparatus. It’s a must-have for any dubstep fan. Even if you don’t like dubstep, it’s hard to deny the satiability of this tune.

Surely many of you have already heard this song, but it was recently featured on Swanky Tunes’ January Mix. Unsure of what genre to categorize this song under, I’m just gonna go ahead and describe what it feels like. “Tourniquet” makes me feel as though I’ve been superimposed into an dark and twisted game of MarioKart. Not only is my brain racing against the beat, but I must battle fierce monsters along the way, their screams being heard as I drive off into a melodic ominousness for the win. One thing’s for sure, Knife Party will be taking you for a ride in this one…

The name Tommy Trash seemingly gets bigger and bigger every day, but then again, so do his releases. Ever since Tiesto proclaimed that Mr. Trash would be the next big thing, the jams just keep rolling out. His signature sound reminds me of an electronically-enhanced version of the moaning noise most people make when they wake up. The difference between the two? Tommy Trash adds the element of melody; No one sounds this good when they roll out of bed. Here’s the 411 on three new tracks that will officially put this man in the limelight. Be warned, though, his music is not for the faint of heart…
1.) Sex, Drugs, Rock N Roll (Original Mix) – Tommy Trash – This tune is all-out anarchy and mayhem, just as rock n roll should be. Hard drops and deep basslines combined with demonic vocals repeating “sex, drugs, rock n roll” make this track the new-aged electronic rocker’s anthem.
2.) Cascade (Original Mix) – Tommy Trash – “Cascade” does just that… it permeates your ears with huge chords, and then careens downwards into a heavy, bass-filled rhythm that will leave you breathless and screaming for more.
3.) Antidote (Tommy Trash Remix) – Swedish House Mafia vs Knife Party – After this track tears up the dancefloor, there’ll be no antidote for the destruction left in its wake. The original charm (if you can call it that) that was present in the original mix is left intact, but Tommy Trash throws in his signature sound on top of the dubstep, which creates a beat unlike any you’ve ever heard. This will be BIG… no doubt about it.
1.) Fire In Your New Antidote (Kaskade Mashup) – Kaskade vs. Swedish House Mafia & Knife Party
Kaskade is one of the EDM scene’s mashup masters, and he has a thing for placing vocals from his own productions over instrumentals from other new releases. Antidote is obviously a high-octance release, considering it was a collaboration between Swedish House Mafia and Knife Party. I gotta be honest, those are two names I never would’ve expected to see on the same bill for a single, but it proves that there is a growing connection between artists from every corner of the EDM world, and EHusky is all for it. At the end of the day, Kaskade has just produced a great alternative to the original vocal mix of Antidote, as he blends the lyrics from Fire In Your New Shoes with the beat quite effectively.
2.) All That Disaster (Kaskade Mashup) – Kaskade vs. Laidback Luke
This was posted by Kaskade just a few minutes ago, and it’s a great instrumental mix that will definitely get plenty of air time in Kaskade’s upcoming sets. There is minimum vocal sampling from All That You Give, but the focus on the instrumental build and melodic drop give this track an anthemic aura. Definitely a dance floor jam. But hey, that’s what Kaskade is known for. Enjoy… (free download for this one via Soundcloud)
