INTERVIEW: HELENA Talks “Levity,” Working With Ultra Records and More

“If I’m not fist-pumping and jumping around in the studio when it drops then I know it’s not going to transpose well into a festival set. “Levity” was about combining classic house with the more energetic sounds of now.”

HELENA has blessed the electro house community with multiple massive singles in recent months, but “Levity,” her brand new Ultra Records-backed collaboration with esteemed vocalist Shawnee Taylor, just might be the one that launches the Australian producer to her inevitable position as an instantly recognizable staple of electronic music.

After hearing the exciting new material, UTG had the chance to talk …

THE DROP: Featuring Heroes x Villains, Barron, Rekoil and More

While electronic music is generally not the main focus of Under The Gun’s coverage, there are quite a few members of our team who enjoy everything from dubstep and d&b to hardstyle and house. Thus, staff writer Michael Giegerich is heading the revival of The Drop, a retired column some longtime readers may remember.

Focusing on producers who aren’t headlining Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland (not yet, anyway), this list will provide you with five artists and their must-hear tracks. If you have any suggestions for who should be added to the next edition of this feature, contact Michael …

Esquille

REVIEW: ESQUILLE – ‘Rock This Club Down’

Artist: ESQUILLE
Album: Rock This Club Down EP
Genre: House, Club, Dance

Sweden’s popular EDM producer, ESQUILLE, has one mission in mind with his new EP, and the effort’s title says it all. Even at a brief 15 minutes shared between just 5 new tracks, Rock This Club Down is packed to the brim with enough well-produced heavy bass and catchy rhythms to make you lose a few pounds from dancing your ass off.

I should admit here and now that I’m not entirely an EDM connoisseur. I’ve dabbled in dubstep, trap, trip-hop, house, et cetera, but I wouldn’t …

LISTEN: Madeon – “Technicolor”

Madeon, the French dance music prodigy who has taken the world by storm in recent years with an array of unforgettable milestones such as his “Pop Culture” mashup and performing at Coachella while only 18 years old, has finally graced listeners with the full version of his newest song. Entitled “Technicolor,” the cut provides over six minutes of phenomenal electro house that manages to transition back and forth from being adrenaline-pumping to absolutely blissful.

Follow the jump to experience “Technicolor,” and if you enjoy the tremendous electronic anthem as much as we do, be sure to purchase a high quality …

Borgore Carnage Incredible

STREAM: Carnage & Borgore – “Incredible”

You got your trap in my house music! You got your house music on my trap!

Producers Carnage and Borgore are big names in their respective scenes. The former for being a purveyor of dirty beats, the latter for laying down catchy if not filthy dubstep tracks (not to mention a gonzo music video starring Miley Cyrus making out with some dude in a horse mask).

So when the pair teamed up, it’s reasonable to think that they would produce something memorable. “Incredible” isn’t as over the top as it potentially could have been, but it bounces hard.

WATCH: Patrick Stump on House

Patrick Stump is a man of many talents, that is for certain. We know that the man can sing, play guitar, piano, harmonica, and likely any other instrument tossed his way, but did you know that he enjoys acting as well?

A while back, word leaked that the Fall Out Boy frontman would be playing a small roll on an episode of House M.D. on the FOX network. That episode premiered last monday, and because nothing can stay offline due to crafty and technologically savvy media pirates, we have some video featuring his part here on UTG.

LIVE REVIEW + PHOTOS: 4/14: Full of Hell / Code Orange Kids / Extermination Angel / Triac / Misled Youth

There are a lot of different types of venues that you can see your favorite bands play in. You can see them in arenas, you can see them in big clubs, small clubs, dive bars, at festivals, but in my opinion there is one way that you can experience artists that no other way can hold a candle to: House shows. This past Saturday my fellow punks and I went to the Rocketship in Washignton DC to see hardcore up and comers Full of Hell and Code Orange Kids play sets in a sweaty basement. …
