Enigmatic @Meatportmusic premieres with bold and wild “The Troll”

MEATPORT, “The Troll”

Enigmatic producer/DJ Meatport premieres with “The Troll” via Vinyl City.  It’s a bold, wild ride of a song that straddles fun as much as it might infuriate you with its alternately ominous and goofy chorus.  Musically it surfs a seriously ambitious wave of 90’s techno-house colliding with drum ‘n bass and trap elements along the way – put early Armand Van Helden and DaRude in a room with Martin Garrix and Pegboard Nerds and you might get a sense of where the song might head for you.  And if you’re game – well, welcome to the #MeatFam with much more zaniness to come, meat-helmet included 🙂 There is no second-guessing that Meatport knows his craft well!  Check out the tight radio edit up top or the full enchilada with all of the hot sauce and jalapeño peppers below, and pick it up at your favourite digital store.

Fast & Furious: NYC’s @ReidSpeed’s “Animal” is a triumph of tough melodic dubstep featuring @Burnheart_music

REID SPEED featuring BURNHEART, “Animal”

If you like your trap mixed with drum ‘n bass and lots of melody, then “Animal” by NYC producer/DJ Reid Speed is for you.  She concocts a mix that does not let up, with beautifully sweet melodic moments in stark contrast to some of the hardest dubstep and trap you’ll hear in a song that has big crossover potential.  It’s aided fittingly by a deep and soulful vocal by L.A.’s Burnheart (aka Scott Bernhardt) that takes “Animal” to yet another level within one song.  I was not familiar with Reid Speed before this song but I can see why she is being touted as one of North America’s most innovative producer/DJ’s regardless of gender.  Check out “Animal” above and be prepared to have your senses twisted and turned and eventually reassembled.
