At this point, LabRat has become a familiar name with Euphoric readers. The Bass producer and DJ is not only a Santa Cruz local artist, but also easily one of our favorites. Throughout the years we’ve kept a chronologue of Labrat’s happenings, from when we first met up with him in , to Northern Nights, to his latest release, Hold The Phone.

Well today, he does it again. Hypem.com just posted his remix of fellow California, reggae artist’s,  Stick Figure,  “Fire on the Horizon” off their Set in Stone EP. And readers, it burns evenly to the last beat. Dreamy beats remixed with Stick Figure’s clean and introspective lyrics lightly glide the song’s embers deep in to the mind’s dry brush. An inferno is ignited and after 4 consecutive straight plays, we still can’t get enough. Enjoy this one, burners!

SoundSnobz – CTRL

Ok, I’m going to admit it. I’m not really what you would call an EDM fan. Born and raised in Rock ‘N Roll, I graduated to punk, jazz, soul, outlaw country and metal. Basically every damn thing I could get my hands onto besides electronic music.

Then, the gods that be decided to get a good chuckle and I scored a job writing for Euphoric.net. Now I’m nipple-deep in bass, trap, house, and other electronic music I’m actually starting to ENJOY the damn stuff. Oh irony, you tricky fox.

Recently, I was shown UK producer Troyboi, and discovered just how artistic this genre can be. I jumped on the chance to work the Euphoric Press Tent at Northern Nights this last July curious not only for the adventure, but to check out Troyboi’s set. And he did not disappoint. His electrifying energy and unique style shocked even the most critical parts of my brain into admitting I was witnessing something pure, original and new. But again, I’m late to the party.

“CTRL” the latest release from SoundSnobz–Troyboi’s collaboration project with IceKream–was released yesterday on Elysian Records and fits nicely in the band’s discography. “CTRL” continues the duo’s innovative style while keeping the track firmly anchored with an infectious beat. While they aren’t reinventing the wheel with this one, it still ventures into experimental territory at times, keeping the song fresh and alive.

Is this this sign of more, new SoundSnobz tunes to come? Stay tuned!
