Watch Tinie Tempah In The New Video For ‘Tsunami (Jump)’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2014 by E.N.

Tsunami 042013 has seen 3 No.1 singles for Ministry of Sound, with hits coming from Bingo Players, Duke Dumont and Storm Queen. With 2014 in its sights, the world’s most successful dance label is gearing up for its next crossover hit with DVBBS & Borgeous’s ‘Tsunami (Jump)’, with a new vocal from Brit superstar, Tinie Tempah, following his previous featured hits with Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris.

The epic performance video was directed by Fred Rowson, who commented:
From the moment I heard this track with Tinie’s vocal, I knew that the video would have to be visceral, distinctive, and have real swagger. I wanted it to be iconic, with an industrial, almost gothic aesthetic that we’ve created through the colour scheme and the physical installation that we built. The choreography is central to the way the video develops, and I took Rick Guest’s Royal Ballet photography as a reference point for how we’d portray this. We’ve edited the performances so they build in intensity to really capture the tone of the music“.

The instrumental of ‘Tsunami (Jump)’ has already hit No.1 across Europe and on Beatport, clocked up 60 million collective YouTube views, over800,000 Soundcloud plays, and received repeat UK radio support from Radio 1’s Zane Lowe (who has just premiered the vocal version on Radio 1), Pete Tong, Diplo, Danny Howard, Greg James, Diplo and Annie Nightingale, plus spins from Mistajam at 1Xtra. To date, the track has spent 14 weeks in the Shazam Top 200 chart, peaking at No.13 in the Top 20 pre release chart.

DVBBS are Canadian brothers, Alex and Chris. The duo’s early singles ‘Initio’ and ‘DRVGS’, have taken the global EDM community by storm, and with shows alongside Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Rusko, Eric Prydz, Dada Life, Borgore and Steve Aoki, they’re rapidly becoming one of North America’s hottest live DJ tickets.

LA’s Borgeous is another producer riding the crest of EDM’s next wave. His original productions ‘From Cali WIth Love’, ‘GANGSTEROUS’, ‘Rags To Riches’ and ‘Aggro’, alongside remixes of Rihanna’s ‘Pour It Up’ (with The Cataracs) and his reworking of Ciara’s ‘Goodies’, have brought him much acclaim in 2013.

The inimitable Tinie Tempah has just dropped his second album, ‘Demonstration’, featuring collaborations with Diplo, Pharrell, Zane Lowe, Paloma Faith, Labrinth, Naughty Boy, Dizzee Rascal, 2 Chainz, Emeli Sandé, Ellie Goulding and the Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands.


Following the success of Showtek’s ‘Booyah’ and Martin Garrix’ recent No.1, ‘Animals’, ‘Tsunami (Jump)’ is the next harder-edged EDM anthem to cut through in an ever-shifting dance music landscape.

You may be seeing the name NERVO for the first time, or you may have seen the lovely Australian ladies opening for Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj earlier this summer, but their recent release for their single “We’re All No One” is not the Astralwerks/EMI duo’s first toe in the music industry water, so to speak.

Since then the girls, twin sisters Miriam “Mim” Nervo and Olivia “Liv” Nervo, have been collaborating a with a bevy stellar DJ talent of world-wide recording artists, including dance luminaries Steve Aoki, Avicii, Armin van Buuren, Kaskade, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Dadalife and John Dahlback as well as penning pop hits for the likes of Ke$ha, Kylie Minogue, The Pussycat Dolls, Jennifer Hudson, and more.
Their multi-track digital single “We’re All No One” featuring Afrojack and Steve Aoki was released last week and is available on all digital music outlets, including iTunes, in the U.S. and Beatport globally. The single is their first release for label Astralwerks/ Virgin Records and is the duo’s first commercial solo release the features the two of them stepping up to the mic to perform vocals. The song is a marked departure in style and sound from their more underground dance floor productions of the past year, and showcases a daring new vision, that sets its sights on the future of pop, electro and dance synergies. Head over to Nervo’s Youtube channel to watch the lyric video for the single.
NERVO just completed a highly successful month of DJ dates, in which they launched a Las Vegas residency with the Wynn group, and energized audiences coast to coast as part Identity Festival, the first electronic music travelling roadshow in the U.S.

 “It’s rare in a world now ruled by Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber to hear music that is so angry with itself and with everything else around it. But ATR’s overwhelming energy is difficult to deny, and difficult not to admire — preferably from a safe distance.”– Spin Magazine

Atari Teenage Riot Reignites with Album on Dim Mak

 Activate!and “Blood In My EyesDownload/Stream

Is This Hyperreal

Release Date June 7th on all DSP, June 21st physical release on Dim Mak
 
Is This Hyperreal? Includes Singles “

Is This Hyperreal?, Atari Teenage Riot’s first album released through LA future stomp label Dim Mak, is an acetylene laced documentation of ATR’s re-ignition after an eleven year silence. Produced, mixed, recorded with Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails), ATR’s fourth studio release was made at the Hellish Vortex studio in Berlin.
 
A cultural cold war divided upon class lines, a new age of surveillance, heroes’ incarcerated in the worst conditions possible for speaking out against the military complex, a corrupt press core owned by multi-national corporations and raised to repeat sound bytes. This is the post-cyberpunk world on the brink of collapse Atari Teenage Riot’s Is This Hyperreal? is born into. Every track is an iridescent explosion of nervous energy requesting your attendance in Atari Teenage Riot’scampaign party of education and awareness. Having influenced a generation of M.I.A., Crystal Castles, Le Tigre, Sleigh Bells, and Pendulum, Atari Teenage Riot is a welcome shot in the arm of the music industry.
 
“Activate!” starts the album with Atari Teenage Riot’s most concise statement of intent yet. On a backing of explosive 1991 hardcore jungle synths, super collider bass kicks, and guitar shrapnel Alec, Nic, and Kidtronik spurn us into a campaign of equality, activation, and eradication of ignorance.
 
In “Blood In My Eyes” Alec Empire merges his chiptunes style first shown in 1999’s Nintendo Teenage Robots album with the sound of Crass exploding out of the trunk two cars over. Contained within Nic’s first lead vocal in Atari Teenage Riot tells a tale of enslavement and revenge for all of the women lost within our global human trafficking problem. “Blood In My Eyes” is a riveting electronic punk rock diatribe, paying homage to the feminine retributive subtexts espoused by cult films like ‘Kill Bill’ and heavily censored French art-house offering, ‘Baise-Moi.’ “Black Flags” is a low slung, subwoofer punching, anthem announcing Atari Teenage Riot’s support of Anonymous’ grassroots human rights campaign.
 
We’re allowed a brief respite to catch our breath during “Is This Hyperreal?”. The album’s title track slow cooks with seething analog synths reminiscent of Vangelis’ score for Blade Runner, symphonic percussion and a gurgling acid line are the soundtrack to the birth of a cyborg. “Codebeaker”is a stomping electro rockabilly stormer. Rubbery basslines command your posterior to action; sawtooth guitars swarm your head as Alec and Kidtronik lead us onto wall street to ask the question of “What went wrong?” Dim Mak label boss Steve Aoki’s vocals add an LA Hardcore vibe to give it that much more of a brutal punch.
 
“Shadow Identity” is Nic’s second lead vocal of the album and the most unexpected hook. On top of a New Order bassline and what sounds like a drum line made performed by an obsolete automotive assembly line Nic interweaves a narrative of blood diamonds, global trade and consumer awareness. “Re-arrange Your Synapses” is a new gabber punk classic. The 909 drum machine speeds up to a blurred fever pitch as Alec and Nic dive bomb verses painting a near future world of post net neutrality legislation where access to money and corporations control the public’s access to information on the internet.
 
Atari Teenage Riot saves their most straightforward electro romp for “Digital Decay”. Showcasing a thick gurgling bassline, razor taunt snares and Nic  as a floating artificial intelligence prophet. “Digital Decay” would fit perfectly into one of Aoki’s legendary DJ sets. “The Only Slight Glimmer of Hope” is dripping with uplifting brash, sing-along, sass-bag vocals and deep driving modular synth work. “The Only Slight Glimmer of Hope” is Atari Teenage Riot’s legendary effortless synthesis of Crass, Throbbing Gristle, and Kraftwerk.
 
“The Collapse of History” immediately makes itself known as the most unexpected and welcome Atari Teenage Riot song ever. Throwing listeners for a complete curveball, Alec flexes his 90s hardcore influence by intertwining stadium sized jungle breakbeats with a national anthem. Nic transforms herself into a pop dance diva and brings her sassiest vocal performance of the album. The mind glue chorus celebrating the overthrow of corrupt institutions hits your like warm sunlight after an all night rave. As ATR ends the album “Humanity will win in the end.”

Steve Aoki & Sidney Samson Release Video for “Wake Up Call”, Stars Michelle Rodriguez & Clifton Collins Jr!

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2011 by E.N.

Steve Aoki & Sidney Samson’s Stars Michelle Rodriguez (Lost, Machete)
and Clifton Collins Jr. (Traffic, Capote)

As URB magazine points out, “we’re used to seeing Steve Aoki rocking the tank top, tight jeans, cool sneakers look behind the decks. So pardon if we do a double take when Aoki appears in a nice tailored suit in the video for ‘Wake Up Call.’” Notorious party-king Aoki in a suit should not be the only thing giving you a pause.
 
The video is set to Sidney Samson (famous for last year’s HUGE “Riverside”) and Aoki’s moments of throbbing beats set on top of an eerily lovely melody bursting into crunchy sounds with big club-house feel, then building up to Aoki screaming “WAKE UP!”. Starring Michelle Rodriguez, known for Lost, Machete, and Avatar, and her general badass-ness, and fellow badass Clifton Collins Jr. (Traffic, Capote), the video takes you in and out of dream-like states, Inception style. With naked women, Rodriguez in light bondage, and Collins in his skivvies, Aoki moves as Mr. Sandman, screaming into their ear to wake-up from their bizarre dreams.
 
Director Jason Beattie states, “I have been wanting to take a different approach with my music videos. When I heard this track and found out that Michelle Rodriguez and Clifton Collins Jr. were interested, I immediately knew it would work. As you’ll see, I took a more cinematic approach and used the music as a score. Working with all the actors (including Steve) was amazing and each of them brought incredible energy as you will see. A big thank you to Michelle, Clifton and Steve for letting me push as far as I did.”
