Bump of the Day – Marcus Schossow – Snare

Posted in Bump of the Day, Trance with tags , on November 14, 2011 by dissonantcognitions


If the waveform doesn’t say it all, there are no dead points in this euro-style hard trance spectacular.  Martin Schossow takes us back to an old-school feel to a sound of “club” long-lost to cliché hip hop and pop-house.  “Snare” packs a full-throttle underground trance/rave flow that hits harder than you would expect by fusing in some electro and distorted vocal elements.  Time to bring the entrancement back to the dance floor.

Bump of the Day – Deadmau5 – Afterhours

Deadmau5 At Play

Time to kick off that Friday night in pure rage-style.  The mau5 man throws down some of his most hard-hitting beats and electro/house flair in this overly sexual floor-bumper.  In addition to somewhat disturbingly excited vocals, Deadmau5 delivers some of the fullest sound and deepest bass I’ve ever heard on one of his hit tracks.  An ode to a good night, “Afterhours” is pure house gold.  Raise those cups in the air and get ready to make it a late one.

Bump of the Day – Liquid Stranger – Ripple (VIP)

Liquid Stranger

For all us former metalheads, Liquid Stranger was the ultimate crossover between the hard-hitting riffs of rock and hardstyle dubstep.  This guy knows how to pack a metallic punch into every drop, bump, and wobble that graces his tracks.  This right here is probably the perfect example of how hardcore riffs and hip dubstep flow can be combined to make an epic creation.  This track packs a huge hit and a flow straight out of gangster rap.  Definitely my personal favorite.

Bump of the Day – Freestylers & Pendulum – Painkiller (Kouncilhouse Remix)

Here’s a pot of epic soup for you.  Stirred into the recipe are such delectable ingredients such as the dub-flow of the Freestylers, the drum & bass flavor of Pendulum, and the head-banging wobble licks of Kouncilhouse.  Sprinkle on some spicy verses from Sirreal and we have ourselves a finished masterpiece.  The end result is a piping-hot bowl of drumstep’s hottest main dish to be served on the table in years.  Best served hot, so don’t even think about blowing on that spoon.

Bump of the Day – ATB – Ecstasy

ATB Ecstasy

Continuing my ambient fixation, this throwback jam from ATB lives up to exactly what the title says.  The vibes of this song provide nothing but the best euphoric auditory sensations coupled with gorgeously captivating vocals from Tiff Lacey.  One of ATB’s biggest hits to date, “Ecstasy” brings the somewhat underground Trance scene to the front door of mainstream popularity.  On the production end, delicate synths and a smooth Trance beat provide the perfect background for the now established hit to grace your speakers with the perfect tone.  ATB knows exactly what ecstasy is: a blissful combination of the elements of music enjoyed by the masses.  Get your fix.

Bump of the Day – Ellie Goulding – Lights (Bassnectar Remix)

Ellie Goulding

I’m fairly certain it’s next to impossible that you haven’t heard this by now, but just in case I’m going to load up your eardrums with some Bass-nectary vibe that’s out of this world.  There are three parts of the equation going into this song that I find it impossible to have missed out on so far.  Firstly, singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding has been exploding onto the music scene in the past two years with her serene voice and delicate, indie-style composing.  Secondly, her song “Lights” has been one of the most popular releases she has had in her career to date.  And Thirdly, Bassnectar.  Just, Bassnectar.  The trance/bass spin that the sub-loving producer coupled with Gouldings already trance-like voice has created perhaps one of the most immortal vocal bass remixes to date.  Immerse yourself.

Bump of the Day – Boltan – Creepy (Mightyfools Remix)

Boltan Creepy Mightyfools

I’ve tried, but I honestly can’t stop moving to this one.  Mightyfools take this bumpin’ bass tune and scratch it up to a raging electro-bass club anthem.  Catchier than the flu in November, this track is sure to cause insanity at any party, club, or impromptu dance floor that you may conjure up in the near future.  Rockin a solid fast-based bass beat and some addicting scratch-wobble patterns, this is a recipe for a beautiful disaster.  If you don’t already have this one in your library then I suggest you make the wise addition immediately and watch your other songs start to move.
