Shawn Wasabi is Back with “Spicy Boyfriend”

If you read our prior post on Shawn Wasabi you would already know that we are big fans of his work as well as other artists like him. His rhythm on the Midi Fighter 64 is not a skill that a lot of artists have. Which is why some of us flock to his work and watch his YouTube channel like a hawk. After what has felt like forever (since Burnt Rice which was released in 2015) we have been finally graced with a new full track and video to accompany it. Check it out below, called “SPICY BOYFRIEND”. And in the last hour he has released a quick preview of...


BentoByte Artist Spotlight: Ananda Beats

Whether you are aware of it or not, but Denver Colorado is a little hot bed of music. From our world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater to the dark and dirty venues of the High-Dive and Larimer Lounge, there are a lot of opportunities to see new music. This time around though we are going to focus on one of them, Ananda Beats. Ananda is a local producer who utilizes Japanese influences to create his mellow tracks (if you couldn’t already tell by the use of the Kitsune masks). His tracks have all been low key and chill trap tracks in the past, and with his latest single “Only Us” nothing...


Artist Spotlight: daydreamer

For those still jazzed about the “Shelter” animation, have we got a treat for you this week. Meet daydreamer, an artist that has a similar style to Porter Robinson. This airy synthpop/electro will surely take you on a journey for the brief 6 songs that are on the “Senses” EP. Check it out below: Now daydreamer also does few remixes, I would not necessarily recommend a few of them (there is a lot of sections where you can hear elements of the track clipping which could be a stylistic thing), but a really fun one is his(her?) remix of Madeon below: What did you all think? Let us know in...


TeddyLoid and DAOKO Release New Music Video

TeddyLoid has always had a soft spot in our hearts. From the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt soundtrack to the anime epic video of ME!ME!ME! we have come to always expect something heavy and a tad bizarre. Which is why his latest high production video that he does the music for is no different. You may remember DAOKO and TeddyLoid were teaming up for Project HAL. Well now it appears that they have done the newly released video to the same track. You can check it out below:


Artist Spotlight: Crystal Castles

The future of Crystal Castles has always been an unsure one. After Alice Glass’s departure in 2014, it seemed that the duo was finished. Skip forward one year later and lo and behold, Ethan Kath released “Frail” in April of 2015.  Signifying that Crystal Castles wasn’t finished meant that we can expect a new album (hopefully) this year. So what makes Crystal Castles so great? Their music is something that isn’t terribly common within the electronic world. Sure, there are boat loads of melancholic music to pick from, but something about the dark and lo-fi tones and high energy vocals of Crystal Castles that carved them a path in the music world....


Artist Spotlight: Chuck Inglish

From the Cool Kids to Ev Zepplin Some may know Evan Ingersoll (known better by his stage name Chuck Inglish) from his debut in the hip hop group known as the Cool Kids. And while the tracks that followed in this debut from The Bake Sale (EP) and When Fish Rode Bicycles (album) were monumental, the fame of the Cool Kids started to fade as the two members went off in pursuit of their own goals. So then the question began. What was next for these artists. If not the Cool Kids, then what? Well, our friend Chuck Inglish has been a bit busy. When he isn’t helping produce tracks he is off making his own...


Track Spotlight: Alan Walker’s “Sing Me to Sleep”

For those who do not know, Alan Walker is a Norwegian electronic dance music producer famous for his track “Faded.” After his initial release of “Fade” on the NCS (NoCopyrightSounds) label, and with the mix in with vocals “Faded” blew up. Then it just became a matter of time before everyone was expecting another track. Fortunately for us, it was finally released today. Check out his newest single and video for “Sing Me to Sleep” below: “Sing Me To Sleep” is a solid track. It’s no “Faded”, but it is a decent addition to Alan Walker’s repertoire. With the somber tone of the track and that of the video, the...


Teddyloid and the World Outside of Vocaloid EDM

Every once and a while we like to feature new (or sometimes older) tunes, artists, and things that we have found online. This week is the producer and remix artist Teddyloid. Teddyloid is an artist that is hard to ignore, especially with work such as “Me!Me!Me!” and his additions to the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt soundtrack. All of that aside, Teddyloid is a particularly great artist outside of the bubble of the anime subculture. Which in terms of music, is filled with vocaloids and EDM remixes paying homage to classic anime. From a regular electronic dance music enthusiast standpoint, his other tracks are phenomenal. This has never been more prevalent and true...


Timbre: Sun and Moon

Much to the delight of her cult following, last April Timbre Cierpke released the two part album, Sun and Moon. While this fantastic journey ranges from full-on rock moments to ones that are completely classical, it isn’t for everyone. But those who appreciate it will likely treasure it forever. The album commences with an instrumental which builds haunting tension, blossoming wonderfully into “Song of the Sun.” When I hear this tune, I feel as though I’ve recently escaped the dungeons of an unjust ruler to be greeted by troubadors with voices and instruments possessing healing powers. The lyrics, instrumentation, and various back-up vocals intertwine well to enchant. “Your Hands Hold Home” takes...


Grimes, The Eccentric and Modern Art Angel

Back in the world of music, the artist Grimes released a new music video today to accompany her latest album, Art Angels. I will admit, Grimes isn’t for everyone but she is exceptionally brilliant and is definitely one of the individuals who manages to push the boundaries in terms of music. In doing so, deserves a significant amount of recognition. On top of being an exceptional producer, she is also a very vocal and strong independent individual. But I will touch on that later. For now, give some of her tunes a quick listen below. Here is the newly released video “Kill v. Maim” Grimes first piqued my interest back when...


New Fresh Remix From Marshmello and Jauz

As we slowly approach the holiday break some people will need a few pick me ups here and there. And what a better way than a clutch remix from Jauz and Marshmello? For those who pay attention to the EDM world Marshmello and Jauz are soaring in popularity. Marshmello’s most recent popular remix was of Adele’s “Hello” is phenomenal, which we would highly recommend checking out. As for Jauz, he has done some impressive genre blending left and right. We have also included a few remixes of his below. But without further ado, below is their recent remix of the famed track “Need You 100%” by Duke Dumont. Below is...
