Rave Advisory | Candyland, Washed Out, MUST DIE!, Deimos and Gears!
Another weekend, another Rave Advisory. It’s been a good while since we made our last “weekend jams” session here on Senntenial.com, so I have more than the usual to share with you today from a great variety of styles encompassing electronic music and alternative alike.
Parker Ighile – Remember Me (Candyland Remix)
Candyland is a pretty scene-breaking artist. His profession is literally making bass music, and more commonly, dubstep. A revisit to one of his older tracks is what feels necessary in this time of year. Candyland brings Parker Ighile into the world of his style and makes something completely new out of the original track; delivering a plucked synthesizer and warming progression to accompany the vocals of the song. Ultimately, preparing it for a roaring drop a mere minute into the track. The buildup and the drop are very much so direct to each other. They both are proficient in developing the song and building it, but they still feel very different to each other in a great way. It may not be what you’re expecting based on the introduction, but time often shows us that the unexpected is the best part of music.
Washed Out – “Feel It All Around”
Though it may be a drastic switch from our common theme of mostly electronic music, alternative artist “Washed Out” brings a vintage sounding track to its full potential. Complete with chords, a punchy, yet subtle, percussion, and an accompanying vocal to match the mood, Feel it All Around builds a song with a chill and unique sound.

MUST DIE! – “Project Ghost”
MUST DIE’s new album, “Death & Magic” has got some pretty outstanding tracks but personally, none as outstanding as his dubby breaks-like track, Project Ghost. Introduced with drama and awe we are immediately thrown into the MUST DIE! style head on after a mere thirty seconds. It’s a good shift from the theme of the album in some manner, but touches on his signature sound (as demonstrated well in his Zomboy collab, “Survivors”) in an effective way.

Porter Robinson – “Goodbye to a World” (Deimos & Gears Remix)
It was only a matter of time before Porter Robinson’s new album “Worlds” got the dubstep treatment. Artists Deimos and Gears pursued a melodic dubstep remix of World’s final track, “Goodbye to a World” keeping intact the beautiful vocal and style that clearly makes it a Porter Robinson track at heart.
