———————————————————————————–

ShockOne is back in storming form, with his killer debut album ‘Universus’. Australian-born Karl Thomas released his first EP as ShockOne in 2009 which featured the smash hit ‘Polygon’ and the experimental Dubstep anthem, ‘Adachigahara’s Theme’. Since then he has been behind a string of successful singles that have seen Beatport and iTunes number ones, YouTube hits by the millions, as well as support from influential industry tastemakers such as: Triple J, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pendulum, Knife Party, Matrix & Futurebound, Sub Focus, and Chase & Status.

The album opens up with ‘Chaos Theory’, the latest in ShockOne’s array of chart storming singles that he has unleashed on the Bass music community. Having already ranked #1 on iTunes Australia’s dance charts and racking up close to million views on YouTube, Chaos Theory’s screaming basslines and hard hitting beats have already cemented ShockOne’s place as one of Australia’s premiere bass producers. The ascending synths of ‘Chaos Theory’ prevail, while an epic film trailer-voice pushes punters towards the dancefloor.

Next up is ‘Harmonize’, an uplifting D&B workout with an eastern tinge. Grimey undercurrents complement tearing beats, causing severe dancefloor damage. Moving on, we get into ‘Big Bounce’, a funky jolting contrast from the first few tracks of the album. At first, swaggering bass works closely with chopped up funk synths and off beat drum patterns. Then mid-track, we drop into an epic, arpeggiated keyboard solo, displaying subtlety and refinement, before dropping back into the meat of the 4/4 take, on ShockOne’s sound. ‘Lose Control’ doesn’t take much imagination to know where this one is headed. With vocoder vocals leading up to the drop and a funky, head-nodding bassline, watch out for the ‘sign of the horns’ on the dancefloor!

Mid-album is ‘Crucify Me’, an epic D&B adventure with fellow-Australian, Phetsta along for the ride. Successfully released as a two part single in 2011, this mini D&B saga has already been a festival favourite since its release. Next we have ‘Universes’ (with an “e”). Taking its name from the album title, this vocal anthem features the beautiful vocals of ShockOne’s sister, Reija Lee, as well as Phetsta once again on the production collaboration. The frenetic sirens and rap vocals of Kyza instantly alert the listener that ‘Lazerbeam’ is going to be a heavy dancefloor smasher once it drops. Perfectly capturing the sounds of today’s Drum & Bass, this is the
apex predator of 2013!

Switching gears, ‘Infinity’s Silence’ delivers vintage ShockOne in its truest form, with signature chopped up vocals and a bouncy bassline. Taking us into Dubstep territory, ‘Relapse’ features an epic melody and emotive vocals from Sam Nafie. Previously released as a single, ‘Relapse’ has already registered over 1 million YouTube hits since its release. Once again, ShockOne cranks up the energy with ‘Age of Enlightenment’. Destined to be a clap-along favourite at festivals, this one is sure to keep crowd jumping. To finish off the LP, we are softly brought back down to ground level, with a beautiful euphoric outro, ‘Light Cycles’. An epic journey through the cosmos, ‘Light Cycles’ truly shows the range of ShockOne’s producing skills in what will likely be pegged as the crown jewel of ‘Universus’ when all is said and done.

EPTIC

19 year old Belgian prodigy, Eptic has been causing a bit of a stir in the bass scene. Since his debut signing to Never Say Die Records with the ‘Like A Boss’ EP that went straight to the top 5 on the Beatport dubstep charts, he instantly proved his caliber, gaining an insight in to just how big this musical personality will get.

Since, he has moved on to collaborate with artists such as Habstrakt which resulted in ‘Ninja Challenge’ that was featured in this year’s Never Say Die and UKF album mixed by SKisM alongside names like Skrillex, Flux Pavilion, Foreign Beggars and more.

With a remix for SKisM under his belt and signings to Ministry of Sound and Sony, his 4.5 million views on YouTube come as no surprise. The 19-year-old wunderkind has been tearing up the systems of some of the best clubs and festivals on the globe with the demand for his appearance at notable promotions rapidly up scaling. No doubt this talented Belgian is becoming a prominent figure in bass music.

WARPA!NT (HOPSKOTCH RECORDS)

Warpaint’s (aka. Sebastian Elkner’s) music carrier began in earnest in 2006 producing for and emceeing with (now defunct) Melbourne hip-hop outfit The Contrast, since then he has also produced beats for Sklang!, Threat Level Orange and most of the upcoming album from Inkstain Pro. His music draws upon influences from many different sources including Jazz, Hiphop, DnB, Glitch, Dub, Dubstep and Blues just to name a few. His debut EP “Burn City Steppa Volume 1″ is a fresh, minimalist arrangement of deep spacial dubstep heavily influenced by the original London future garage sound. Featuring a guest appearance by Melbourne’s Dyzlexic CM on the opening track “Beddageddabeddabeat” Dyz’s rolling flows move smoothly, taking things back to the origins garage style.
