Excision’s Paradox tour is coming to an end. Only a few more shows to witness one of the best stage productions I’ve ever seen. The viral videos don’t do justice on this monstrosity of a stage. I got to witness it this past weekend at the sold out show in Dallas, TX.

I got there late but witnessed Cookie Monsta opening up his set. Apparently he was getting exhausted from all the tour dates but on stage he looked very energetic and alive. He was mixing trap and dubstep and the crowd was really feeling it. He dropped a classic, Flux’s Bass Cannon. He also played TrollPhace’s remix of Black Hole which is outstandingly ridiculous live. The whole tour posse came out for CM’s finish.

Excision’s stage is insane as fuck. The visuals look clean and crisp af. Neck Brace tune with Messinian,A heavy Purple Lamborghini remix, Need your Heart 2.0 sounds heavenly without all the insane modulation happening in dubstep. Feel Your Love by flux and Nghtmre was meant to be played at this stage. G Shit is some heavyyyyy shit to hear live. Runners by Trampa went offff and people got crazy when Throwin Elbows came on.

I’m not Kidding this stage production is off the chain. Combine that with the insanely loud speakers (I don’t feel bad for you if you didn’t bring earplugs!) and sick dub productions, this was me and my girlfriend’s surprise event of the year so far. I’m excited to see if Excision will be working on a bigger, better stage in his future tour.

LZRD is notorious for his jaw dropping remixes, however, his latest remix of Kygo’s song “Raging” is truly jaw-dropping. The song starts out with an eclectic, pop-driven, tropical sound that puts listeners on edge, anticipating what’s to come next. When the drop finally arrives, it makes the song come to full circle as the future bass-driven, rhythmic beat latches on and send the lead crashing into listener’s ears. “Raging” is an electronic masterpiece in itself, but LZRD’s original touch with his remix makes the song even more pleasant sounding to the ear. Check it out below and be sure to grab the free download here.

On Friday, Martin Garrix dropped a remix package of his latest single “Scared To Be Lonely” featuring Dua Lipa. While the EP comes with six different versions of the catchy tune, one specifically struck a chord with me. I’m not familiar with Medasin or his previous works, but after hearing his take on “Scared To Be Lonely,” he’ll certainly be on my radar. Each time the chorus dropped, I was overwhelmed with a wave of melancholy feels and euphoric synths. I have no problem admitting that I’ve had this song on repeat for the majority of my time since it’s very first play. Check it out below!
