Destroid 01.05

Destroid set to take over the music world

Canadian artists Excision and Downlink combine with Pendulum’s KJ Sawka to form the drop-heavy dubstep group Destroid. They are due to release their debut album, strategically named ‘The Invasion,’ that will drop on May 7. The threesome have confirmed collaborations with EDM big-shots Bassnectar & Far Too Loud, placing this 10-track debut album as one of the most anticipated.

In support of The Invasion (and theirs), Destroid will be embarking on a full-band US tour in order to showcase their music. Their work is claimed to be “the heaviest of the heavy” we’ve ever seen in bass music.

Fans will be stoked to know that Excision will be taking part in a ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on the release day of The Invasion, so if you are a fan, it is not to be missed!


Destroid US tour dates confirmed so far:

  • Friday May 31 – The Warfield, San Francisco (CA)
  • Saturday June 8 – Moonrise Festival, Baltimore (MD)
  • Sunday June 9 – Orion Music + More Festival, Detroit (MI)
  • Thursday July 11 to Saturday July 13 – Camp Bisco, Pattersonville (NY)

Will.i.am faces more infringment woes

Will.i.am has found himself in controversy, once again, with his new release ‘let’s go’. The song, expected to be chart-topping, features Chris Brown and is particularly reminiscent of Arty & Matt Zo’s 2011 track Rebound.  Interestingly enough, his previous run-ins with Calvin Harris, Boys Noize & Adam Freeland didn’t teach him anything, because he hadn’t gotten clearance from Arty’s label ‘Anjunabeats.’

Here is what Will.i.am said about the issue to  KISS-FM:

“Arty is a dope producer so I wrote this song to Rebound this last year. I got in touch with Arty and showed it to him, did a different version to it because I asked him [to] make it newer because I don’t just want to take your song and rap over it.

After a year went by, though, we preferred writing over and using the [original] Rebound. Something happened and the clearance…hopefully, we resolved the issue.”

Good one, Will.i.am

John Digweed locks in club tour down under!

When interviewed throughout his 2012 tour, he said that “I want the crowd to come away being surprised and wanting to search out what they have just heard. I just try and focus on what I do and the parties I am playing and make sure I give 110-percent to every gig and try make each party better than the last.”

John has an obvious dedication to his fans and his music so be sure to check him out in June!
