It’s been far too long. After hibernating through a cold, computer-less winter, we’re starving for some sustenance.  The children are hungry. It’s time to share those bass-heavy morsels that we’ve been hoarding like nuts in a tree.  Well, since we lumbered out of our caves from hibernation, UMF14 happened, and festival season is fully upon us. Praise the bass-heavy and all their decibels of “whoa.” In celebration of the season,…

Monster of the Week: Candyland

This is like EDM junk food, and we got a sweet tooth. Ethan Davis and Josie Martin, the Santa Barbara-based duo known as Candyland, have been a long-time BASSMONSTER Staff favorite. We most recently caught a killer set from Josie this year at EDC Orlando, as the sun fell into the night sky. Literally jumping for 60 minutes straight. Anyways, grab a pen, grab a sheet of paper, and take notes.…

Tomorrowworld 2013 Recap

Where do I begin? In the past 6 months I’ve traveled from Downtown Miami to Upstate New York, and everywhere in between … and the most beautiful music festival I have ever been a part of was just 20 minutes from my studio in Atlanta.

FEATURE: Disliking Daft Punk’s New Album Is OK [REVIEW]

So…the world has finally heard the whole thing, and everyone has a very strong opinion. Based on social media and Reddit posters (trolls), the world is pretty much split.

Paper Diamond – Paragon EP [Review]

After dropping his debut album Levitate in 2011 on the Pretty Lights Music label and the Wavesight EP under Mad Decent in 2012, 2013 has brought us this gem, Paragon EP.  As a producer with his own niche within the realm of EDM, Paper Diamond lets his style truly shine on this release.  From some straight hip-hop head bangers, like “Summer Breeze” and “Waste My Time,” Levitate-style tracks (“Temple Run”…

Watch Yourselves. I Smell Monsters.

The collective mind of music production has been releasing nectar at an exponentially high rate.  The Bass gods have taken it upon themselves to guide these lost and demented to us for the upcoming conquest of new genres and content.  As the moon glowed bright and vast in the black night sky last night, technology and malevolence created three new monsters from the wild world of lost and discontent souls. …

Artist Feature: Nicky Romero

“THE STRIKE” IS OVER, APRIL FOOLS <3.  It lasted about 5 hours, and we promised never to do it again.  In the name of future growth and healing, we’re starting this new chapter with a monster-creator of immense talent.

Antics x Ruka Ft. SpadeOne – Raise ‘Em Up

Sometimes, technology’s a pain, but the recovery is so worthwhile. It would take a technical error to remind me of such a gem. If you guys haven’t heard of them, this is a name you should not miss. Antics had to start a new Soundcloud recently, when trying to release a free new track and they fell victim to the evil of technology. [UPDATE: They got their soundcloud back. yay!]…
