The Landing || Volume 077
Chris Liebing delivers the shivers with the dark and dominating techno essence of “And All Went Dark” feat. Polly Scattergood
Taken from forthcoming album Burn Slow, “And All Went Dark” dives into minimalist territory as the ghostly yet sensual voice of Polly Scattergood guides our journey among deep demonic tones and hair tingling bubbles of melody, driving us into sheer madness. Following the release of the Gary Numan narrated track, “Polished Chrome (The Friend Pt. 1)”, “And All Went Dark” joins the ranks as one of many highlight tracks set to shake our soul to the core off of the highly anticipated Burn Slow.
With this offering Chris Liebling gives us a glimpse into the direction of the album, seeking out new harmonic territories and deep themes. The key concept being “presence”. Focusing on the here and now and leaving the past to remain as nothing more than a fleeting memory. -Maria

FuntCase delivers a terrifyingly savage remix of Snails and Dion Timmer’s classic, “Forever”.
For what seems like decades, we’ve been awaiting FuntCase to drop some of the new heat he’s been cooking up in his live sets. Our wishes have finally come true with the release of his remix of “Forever”. Snails and Dion Timmer are the original faces behind this massive track, and we didn’t think anyone could do it better than these two. That is, until FuntCase came along.
Featuring the bone-chilling siren of reverberated synth similar to the one used in “Scary Yikes Grrz” and grimy bass annihilation, FuntCase’s rendition of “Forever” is a stampede of the deliciously squelchy dubstep thrashes our favorite masked bass producer is known for. There are few words that can do this remix justice, so you’re just going to have to check it out for yourself. Careful – it’s a big one. – Jayce

Flux Pavilion surprises us all with a euphoric jazzy masterpiece, “Symphony”.
Released off of Circus Records, Flux Pavilion has officially swept us off our feet with “Symphony”, a magically elusive track comprised of Layna’s silky vocals and interweaving synth threads. Based against an electrifying bassline, “Symphony” seductively pops and sizzles like no other of Flux Pavilion’s tracks.
I’m hoping Flux Pavilion showcases this lullaby of a tune at Lost Lands and gets all of us bassheads in our feels for just a moment. This will definitely be a track I keep on repeat, and once you listen to it, you’ll do the same. – Jayce

Mondo brings the movement with DVV’s “The Phantom”.
Returning from Luminosity, head of Mondo Records Darren Tate grabs the ears of Trance fans with a two track release from newcomer DVV. “The Phantom” offers a true peak-time Trance tune but stacks the leads with plenty of airy appeal via the use of reverb. The melody is tried and true trance – no frills, butt-shaking fun for the dance floor. The track’s bright atmosphere plays well for club appeal and offers a sunny drive that is perfect for beach or poolside fun. If anything, “The Phantom” lives up to its name as it keeps moving and grooving without fear of getting caught in the trap of normalcy. – MyStro

William Black and Matte team up with RUNN to blow us away on new track “Take Me”.
If you’re looking for a tune full of emotional lyrics and vibes that are out of this world, then William Black and Matte’s latest release is for you. The track itself is a solid offering of synths and rich chords, and the vocals laid over the track just bring a sense of completion. Vocalist RUNN was the perfect choice for the tune, as her voice brings with it the uplifting feelings that will inspire you to keep dreaming! We can’t wait for more music from William Black as well, and with his debut EP on the horizon the sky seems to be the limit for this growing artist! – Grant

Subtronics and TrollPhace finally drop their long-awaited riddim swamp monster, “Mecha Doodle”.
Since his NOW THATS WHAT I CALL RIDDIM VOL. 3 mix, Subtronics has secured himself as one of my all-time favorite producers. While deftly combining tracks and creating some of the squishiest riddim I’ve ever heard, Subtronics continues to surprise me. “Mecha Doodle”, his latest collaboration with TrollPhace, has been sampled in several sets I’ve heard this year, and I’m so excited to finally hear the entire version. And yeah, it’s gross.
Released on Never Say Die: Black Label, NSD’s riddim subdivision, “Mecha Doodle” takes slimy chops and slices and dices your psyche with grating bass slashes. Combined with Subtronics’ nasty vocal interjections such as “You’re so eager to die!” and “This is how to kill a god!”, “Mecha Doodle” is a heater of a tune. Check it out today! – Jayce

Caspa keeps it old school with “Neurological”.
Everyone recalls 2008-2009 as having the best dubstep. With slow and powerful basslines, this era will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Caspa’s latest release “Neurological” reminds us that dubstep is not dead and that we can even bring back those OG wobbles we love so much.
Amongst the angry, thrashing dubstep that populates the scene today (which I love, by the way), Caspa has shone through with his signature wubs yet again. “Neurological” truly regains the feel of older dubstep, shaking us to our very core with cooled bass licks and slow and seductive whomps. As with most great things, words just don’t do this track justice. Check it out today and reminisce about the golden days of dubstep. – Jayce
