EXCISION, WOOLI, TRIVECTA and JULIANNE HOPE, “Oxygen”

Tampa, Florida electronic music producer Trivecta (aka Sam Dobkin) easily won over Toronto dubstep fans with his alternately hard hitting and melodic style at Revival Bar last night, where he opened for dubstep master Wooli.  His set slammed super-hard at times – in anticipation of the headliner of course – but transitioned quite well and often into more melodic tones that he has been known for through some of his originals as well as his remixes.  Trivecta, like many other producers in the genre these days, is also a musician, and whipped out his guitar a few times to the utter delight of the invested audience.  Among the highlights in his set were a remixes of songs by “his buddy Gavin” Dabin with “Alive”, “Without You My Love” by Seven Lions, and the song that easily received the best crowd reaction, “Fractures” by another of his pals, Illenium (listen below).  The club was also worked up when he played Above & Beyond’s “Sun & Moon”, and when he brought out his guitar again to his own “Break Me”.  All in all, Trivecta was definitely pumped up by the audience’s warm embrace and it was an entertaining set.

Trivecta also is part of a new release on Excision and Wooli’s EP “Evolution”, which arrived yesterday.  “Oxygen” is a heartwarming slice of emotional electronica that definitely plays to the style of Illenium’s recent Ascend album.  Featuring a touching vocal by co-writer Julianne Hope, the song alternates dramatic synths with softer moments that will appeal to fans who enjoy Illenium’s “Crashing” and other similar songs.  Check it out above.

 

“Rise Up” is flowing and edgy future bass from Florida-based @Egzod with @officialVBravo and @theonlyMIME

EGZOD, VERONICA BRAVO and M.I.M.E., “Rise Up” (free DL)

France-born, Florida-based producer EGZOD continues to be one to keep listening for with his latest release “Rise Up”, definitely one of his best progressive ‘world bass’ songs to date.  The song plays back and forth between an enchanting vocal by Veronica Bravo (think Amy Lee meets Lights) and the hyper-powered flow of M.I.M.E. (think Busta Rhymes versus Tech N9ne).  EGZOD makes sense of it all along the way, imaginatively fusing together what might seem as disparate styles.  This makes “Rise Up” a compelling call to youth, to keep taking themselves to new heights and not give up.  “Rise Up” is generously available as a free download while it lasts.

Mixing it up with two recent duets with Florida’s @3letterznuk – “I Wonder” with NYC’s @MarcoFoster_, and a reboot of “Fool’s Gold” with @AaronCarter

3LETTERZNUK and MARCO FOSTER, “I Wonder”

AARON CARTER and 3LETTERZNUK, “Fool’s Gold” (remix)

I’m one for connecting the dots with music, and sometimes it takes me to interesting places whether in person or with the songs themselves. 

So I had got word that NYC’s rising and talented singer/songwriter Marco Foster – always on my radar – had a new song out called “I Wonder”.  It offers a sweeter-than-usual vocal by Marco that works in beautiful contrast to a fun rap by Florida’s 3letterznuk, newly signed to Sony.  Both styles come together to make the song really gel memorably. 

And in discovering this winning pairing, I found that 3letterznuk’s re-emergence on an earlier single this past summer latched on to another performer’s own re-branding  – fellow Floridian, Aaron Carter.  “Fool’s Gold” was initially released a few years ago and was included on Aaron’s first album in 16 years (and first as an adult!) called LØVË, released earlier this year.  A remix was an awfully good idea, letting 3letterznuk’s verses flow freely over the beginning of the song, allowing a segue for the lush production and a sincerely restrained and bright vocal by Aaron that has a lot of delightful breathy qualities about it too.  

Both “I Wonder” and the remix of “Fool’s Gold” happen to have 3letterznuk in common, but they’re true 2018 sleepers waiting for you to discover them.

Rising producer @Trivectamusic dishes out welcome trance flavours in potent dubstep of “Axis”

TRIVECTA, “Axis”

Florida-based producer Trivecta has been garnering attention this year for his varied exploration of dubstep outside of its now-conventional boundaries.  His latest single “Axis” is a prime example of this, incorporating very welcome trance flavours while keeping the breakdowns creative and the beats huge.  I could picture “Axis” in the soundtrack to a video game, as well as the heads bobbing to it at festivals.  “Axis” is made to be big and aggressive and loud and proud, and will continue to afford Trivecta the growing attention in club and festival circles.
