VerseBorn: “Cheat Code” ft. Menhir demands a huge amount of respect

“Cheat Code” by VerseBorn ft. Menhir is a mostly uninterrupted stream of consciousness. Breaks in the story only occur when one the language switches from English to Italian and back, and when the plot ends and another begins. To call this track unique would be inadequate. The storyline is extremely complex, with recurring motifs. It’s hard to follow, but that’s the point. VerseBorn and Menhir want your undivided attention for the track’s entirety. Straight off the cuff, the listener is thrust right into the action. In true artistic fashion, interconnecting storylines are articulated through interconnecting verses. But even when they

Enzo: ‘Light Me Up’ – an absolutely sublime listening experience

DJs speak with their hands. Producers who can’t use words, express themselves through sound. On the other hand, it’s almost true that in the electronic music realm, the weight of the music can render words secondary. That’s not to say that producers aren’t using their voices…it’s rare but quite possible. Some producers over a number of electronic genres have stepped up to the mic to express themselves vocally, others engage the perfect voices to execute the needed emotion. Once such creative is Enzo, a self-taught musical artist from Boston, Massachusetts. His work as a producer and DJ has led to

Silver Circle EDM Mix 1 develops, dips, twists and turns through an elaborate spectrum!

Silver Circle produces cutting edge, fresh dance anthems, and “Silver Circle EDM Mix 1” is another in a growing succession of powerful EDM mixes to be released recently. Silver Circle creates tracks that are edgy, catchy and universally fun to listen and dance too. Seeing as you won’t be unfamiliar with what’s mixed in here, it’s a really good place to start and appreciate this artist on his debut mix. Within just a few days after its release, “Silver Circle EDM Mix 1” had already been making waves – in excess of 70k YouTube viewers, over 370k Soundcloud plays, plus a plethora of positive reviews and interviews has already been published on various media and news outlets.

How is all this possible? A major part of this success probably lies in Silver Circle’s honest and simple approach to his music.  “For me, it’s all about sharing the music I really like…,” says the Virginia, USA based artist who describes himself as a DJ, continuing: “So if you made it to my mix you really made me happy and possibly everyone who follows my music. Have fun and keep creating from your circle of happiness!”

Silver-Circle-InsideSilver Circle, who cites his mother as being the greatest influence in his taking to music, has put together a seventeen minute mix that develops, dips, twists and turns through an elaborate spectrum of aggressive, hard-hitting beats and melodic synths and vocals. The overall end result of this particular release is one which provides the user with an intense journey through some of the best tracks recently released. The mixing, track selection, and placement are of excellent quality, and executed with massive skill by Silver Circle, who notwithstanding that this is his debut release, constructs this mix in such a way that each individual track seamlessly merges, building up, transforming and then leading into something completely different.

Silver Circle was completely unknown to me about two weeks ago. I was looking for some new EDM and stumbled across his rave reviews. I had some high hopes for the “Silver Circle EDM Mix 1” release, and it sure didn’t let me down. It is definitely Silver Circle’s very own unique style of EDM, which shows no fear of mixing disparate styles and sounds together. The mix has a great feel to it too and portrays deep emotion which is perfect for me since I sometimes listen to EDM while driving or just chilling out.

The general framework of this track resembles that of the melodic EDM type, with interweaving developing melodies that come to diverse essential materializations and breakdowns that culminate with multiple climaxes. But there are many other cool dance elements integrated into this mix, with vibrant bass lines, and somewhat house-like high-hats. This is a very welcomed synthesis of genres, which ultimately results in a very memorable mix. After all the atmospheric textures, melodies and vocal interludes has gone by, we realize that Silver Circle has taken us from a moderately paced atmospheric, melodic vibe, to an intense, thumpingly intense beat, and back again, all against pulsating basslines.
