The Cosmic Pineapple events are curated in such a way that it’s a meeting of different cultures, tribes and traditions. I am originally from a council estate in England, where everything is incredibly raw and real. I also have a strong spiritual connection that was first awakened on the dancefloor… Mostly through music, I have been very fortunate to travel around the world and this, alongside a fascination for esoteric learning, has led me to receive teachings and inspiration from different schools of wisdom. I weave all this together in the energy of the curation of Cosmic Pineapple and it’s this mix of energies that make it special.”

Versatile Dutch producer SUBFICTION unveiled a new single, ‘we_glitch’, on April 26th, 2024 via On Track / SUBFICTION. ‘we_glitch’, which premiered via Electronic Groove, is an appetizer for his forthcoming EP of the same name, slated for release in May 2024. Since the project’s inception in 2022, the year in which he notably played an official after-show for Ross From Friends, the elusive SUBFICTION has been making waves in the music industry with no signs of slowing down. He has toured the Netherlands alongside De Likt and legendary travelling festival The Popronde as 3voor12 talent, and performed at festivals like Grasnapolsky, Motel Mozaïque and Eendracht Festival, as well as many underground clubs. In 2023, SUBFICTION hosted a festival stage together with Irish DJ/producer Kessler’s new label Elicit Records. Unstoppable, in January 2024 the elusive maestro participated in Eurosonic Noorderslag and was awarded the number 12 of best acts by 3voor12.

‘we_glitch’ is an epic piece of Future Garage music, with SUBFICTION deftly drawing influence from UK warehouse styles.

Dreamy, atmospheric chords are occasionally punctuated by glitchy, pitched-up vocals, creating a hypnotic listen that is impossible not to move to.

SUBFICTION shared: “‘we_glitch’ is my sonic journey through the glitchy heart of underground house. It’s where skittering breakbeats meet twisted vocals and the ethereality of future-garage, creating a hypnotic groove that’ll have you lost in the glitch with me, the mysterious glitchmeister, aka SUBFICTION.”

0

In a captivating fusion of nostalgia and contemporary flair, the innovative German producer iFeature has injected fresh energy into Britney Spears’ timeless hit ‘Gimme More’, offering a dubstep bootleg rendition. This homage not only nods to the classic old-school Skrillex style, but also effortlessly integrates modern dubstep elements. This inventive remix has ignited enthusiasm among fans of both the original pop anthem and the early 2010s dubstep scene, demonstrating iFeature’s knack for harmonizing diverse musical epochs. The prolific young producer will be releasing his third album, Forbidden, on April 26, 2024. Follow him below to be sure you don’t miss it!

A Fresh Take on a Nostalgic Classic 

iFeature’s remix delves into the raw, bass-driven sounds that propelled Skrillex to stardom in the early 2010s. Opening with the familiar seductive vocals of ‘Gimme More’, the track unfolds against a backdrop of understated beats, teasing the impending dubstep frenzy. With anticipation mounting, iFeature seamlessly transitions into a high-octane segment, merging classic dubstep elements like wobble basslines and aggressive synths with polished, contemporary production techniques. This fusion yields a sound that is simultaneously evocative of the past and invigoratingly novel, captivating both seasoned dubstep aficionados and fresh ears alike.

The Challenge of Blending Eras

iFeature took on a challenge: crafting a track that honors and rejuvenates the essence of both Britney Spears’ pop legacy and Skrillex’s dominance in the realm of dubstep – a considerable undertaking. Through meticulous curation of elements emblematic of early dubstep—the raw, visceral energy, and the inventive manipulation of bass and synth—and blending them with the refined, intricate production standards of contemporary music, iFeature has forged a remix that shines amidst the abundance of electronic music out there today.

The Response

iFeature’s bootleg rendition of ‘Gimme More’ has garnered overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans. They commend the track for its ability to evoke nostalgia for the golden era of dubstep while also recognizing its evolution. This remix not only showcases iFeature’s prowess as a producer but also underscores the timeless appeal of Britney Spears’ music and the enduring influence of Skrillex’s pioneering work. Music critics have observed that this remix could herald a resurgence of interest in dubstep, a genre that had a chokehold on the electronic music scene in the early 2010s that has also undergone various transformations over the years. By illustrating how the raw essence of early dubstep can harmonize with contemporary sounds, iFeature may inspire a new generation of producers to explore and innovate within the genre.

Closing Thoughts

iFeature’s dubstep rendition of ‘Gimme More’ stands as a vivid testament to music’s enduring ability to progress and motivate across different generations. This track pays homage to its origins while embracing innovation, providing listeners with an exhilarating journey through the evolution of dubstep and pop. In an era where musical boundaries increasingly dissolve, visionaries like iFeature pave the way, demonstrating that through creativity and reverence for tradition, the horizons of musical exploration remain boundless.

Club Angel unleashes latest banger, ‘Cry’

0

Hot on the heels of his sold-out debut national headline tour, fast-rising Eora/Sydney producer, DJ and underground sensation Club Angel released his latest single, Cry’, via Astral People Recordings on 16 November 2023. Channelling the likes of Two Shell and Overmono, ‘Cry’ is a rave-flickered, melancholic hyper-ballad, blending brisk UKG rhythms with lurching, melodic house and an irresistible, pitch-shifted vocal sample – “Why should I be the one to have to cry at night?”. It’s yet another exceedingly impressive display from a producer who is fast-building a reputation for trading in precise and tightly-wound, stylish dance music that is as equally adept at dipping into the emotional as it is the exultant, balancing underground influences with an inherent pop nous. 

‘Cry’ arrives as the capstone to a breakout 2023 for the prodigiously talented producer and DJ, following recent single ‘Stylin” and ‘Ride For Me’, his collaborative single with Kamilaroi-Samoan artist Becca Hatch. Pitting two of Australia’s most promising next-gen prospects together for a match made in club heaven, ‘Ride For Me’ was met with rapturous acclaim across the board, premiering on Good Nights with Latifa Tee and earning full rotation across triple j and FBi Radio to go with praise from ACCLAIM, Purple Sneakers, Pilerats, The Music, Music Feeds and a nomination for ‘Song Of The Year’ at FBi Radio’s 2023 SMAC Awards. 

Off the strength of those two singles, Club Angel’s incendiary live sets have ripped through Australia’s underground dance scene this year like a word-of-mouth wildfire, his ceaseless momentum culminating in his debut national headline ‘Stylin’’ tour, bringing his signature, stuttering 2-step beats and hypnotic melodies to a whole new level with sold-out performances in Eora/Sydney, Naarm/Melbourne, Ngunnawal/Canberra and more. Most recently, he was announced as support for ‘B.O.T.A. (Baddest of Them All)’ hitmaker Interplanetary Criminal’s sold-out Naarm/Melbourne show on Saturday, November 25th. 

Heavily inspired by late 90’s UK dance music, Club Angel explores the moodier side of 2-step, Jungle and Garage with tight drums, sampled orchestral stabs and melancholic vocals, distilling the energy of “a time when dance music was extremely raw and unforgiving.” Released in 2022, his exultant, rave-ready debut EP, 6AM, garnered support from triple j Unearthed, ACCLAIM, Skope Mag, Pilerats, Purple Sneakers and more, alongside rotations adds at FBi Radio, RTR FM, SYN FM and airplay across triple j, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. 6AM earned praise from around the dance world, winning Club Angel fans in luminaries ranging from Anz, Breaka, Pangaea, Laurent Garnier, Good Nights’ Latifa Tee, and Future Dance’s Sarah Story and Northeast Party House, for whom he provided a remix of their ‘Cranky Boy’ single, while his bootleg edits have been played out by everyone from Mall Grab to KETTAMA

Since first exploding onto the scene with his showcase at BIGSOUND 2022, Club Angel’s irrepressible and ecstatic live set has seen him take the underground Australian DJ and dance circuit by storm. Regularly putting in show-stopping sets at Lost Sundays and delivering a highlight Pitch Music & Arts Festival set that has already accrued near-mythic status, Club Angel has also landed support slots for techno star Willaris. K on his national ‘Slow Down’ tour, UK house producer KETTAMA, hotly-hyped Naarm/Melbourne DJ Sam Alfred on his ‘Suzuka’ tour and more. He’s now set to erupt onto the wider festival circuit this summer, bringing the Club Angel live show to bigger and bigger festival stages with upcoming performances at both Lost Paradise 2023 and Let Them Eat Cake NYD Festival across the New Year.

Of the new single, he shares: “In the midst of late nights and countless hours. Writing ‘Cry’ took me to the end of the earth and back, only to realise that the initial idea was all it needed to be. With bright soundscapes, R&B vocals and a driving polyrhythmic synth bass all wrapped in a shuffling 4×4 outfit, this is one to “cry” in the club to!”.

Premiere: Alison Goldfrapp announces ‘The Love Reinvention’, a dancefloor reinterpretation of her debut solo album ‘The Love Invention’

0

Budding pop sensation Alison Goldfrapp’s debut LP delivered an exhilarating cocktail of synth-pop innovation with disco and house that her hypnotic vocals soar dreamily over. The Love Reinvention, set to air on December 8th, 2023 recontextualises these tracks in a space in which their dancefloor addictivity is balanced by an exploratory progressive streak. It sees two of the original album’s key contributors, Richard X and Ghost Culture (aka James Greenwood), reimagining the songs through a sonic prism of techno, electronica and deep house.

On November 10, 2023, Alison unveiled the project’s first track ‘Every Little Drop‘, a radical rework of the tender SLoFLo’ – thumping techno beats, pulsing bass and euphoric synths add a sensual, electrifying new dimension to the original, simmering with drama and decadence. 

Alison divulged: The Love Reinvention turns my solo album The Love Invention on its head, its feet are now firmly placed on the dancefloor. The first taste of the reworked album is ‘Every Little Drop’ which brings ‘SLoFLo’, into a whole new unexpected world. I’m absolutely loving this, I hope you do too.”

The Love Reinvention is now available to pre-save HERE.
