Album review - Pendulum's "Immersion"

The drum and bass world has been anxiously waiting for the arrival of Pendulum's third studio album. The wait finally came to an end this last week with the release of "Immersion". It's 15 tracks showcase Pendulum's unique style as well as some of their newer sounds as they try to grow into new genres.

Immersion starts off with the intro track, Genesis. The drums feel like a grand army approaching, getting ready to blast you away, layered with some interesting 8-bit synths. And then the bass attacking starts. With Salt In The Wound, you get Pendulum's heavier d n b, while the next track, Watercolour, exemplify their softer, melodic beats.
Following those tracks is Pendulum's take on dubstep. Set Me On Fire is exactly what you would imagine Pendulum's dubstep would sound like. Don't expect something really dark and heavy, but something more melodic. I think its a great sound for them and would love to hear more.

Crush, Under The Waves, and Immunize hold strong to Pendulum's d n b style, and all rock. Crush and Immunize hit hard, while Under The Waves is a bit more uplifting (Liam Howlett of Prodigy make an appearance on Immunize)

Pendulum is branching out to new genres, and show this with their House/Electro track The Island. Actually, its one long track split into two parts, Dawn and Dusk. Neither of the songs sound like anything I have heard from the group, but somehow they show how incredibly eclectic they can be. Dawn is funky, prog house and Dusk is heavy electro.

The album then goes back into some more d n b tracks, Comprachicos, The Vulture, and Witchcraft, featuring wobbles and some metal elemants. Then comes Self vs. Self featuring In Flames. Its a pure heavy metal track, and while its not my cup of tea, I'm certain metal lovers will like it

In my opinion, Immersion ends way too soft. The Fountain, is alright, but Encoder is too slow to finish things up, and what the fuck is that sloshing water sound at the end of the track. Its almost like a cheesy Ryan Cabrera track.

Overall, I would give Immersion an A-. Had they chosen to end it with some more bangers, it would have got a higher grade. But one thing still holds true about Pendulum. The six man group work like a well oiled machine, producing excellent beats with Rob Swire's amazing vocals. Make sure to pick up the album from Pendulum's website, here (for those of us in the US, the only way to get the album is through their website. It still hasn't been released here, so you wont be able to get it from Beatport or iTunes.) Hope you enjoyed the full album review and as a treat, here a couple tracks for you to preview.

Dubday Sunday - Excision

It's a very late Dubday Sunday, but nonetheless, here are some tracks from one of my favorites. If you haven't heard of Excision by now, you haven't been listening to good dubstep. Excision's tracks are some of the darkest, nastiest productions around with bass so heavy it has its own gravitational pull. Anything with his name on it is a guaranteed banger.

Warning!: This music is not for the faint of heart.

Excision - Subsonic

Excision & Noiz - Force

Apex - Nowhere to Run(Excision & Datsik Remix)

P.S. Datsik has a lot in store for us this coming summer, including the much anticipated release of Firepower. Here is an HQ preview on Youtube, its been out for a couple months, but the track wont be officially released until summer time.

"Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!"

Who doesnt love monkeys? But how about 'Apes From Space'? Now that would be fucking awesome. Thanks to Aaren San, you'll be yelling, swinging your arms in the air, and possibly pounding your chest while listening to his latest release. With the additions of two remixes from Dirtyloud and Phatso Brown, we have 3 different, yet equally banging tracks.

Aaren San - Apes From Space
Hits you with some tribal beats

A little on the Indie Dance side with a dirty bass

Artist Profile - Autoerotique

Autoerotique is one of Dim Mak Record's newest finds. Its a good thing they picked them up, cause these two will be huge in the years to come. The duo of Keith Robertson & David “Dave” Henderson have been working together for many years since meeting in their hometown of Toronto. After a hiatus which involved them working on separate side projects, the two got back together in 2009 and signed with Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records. That year, their first release with Dim Mak, Gladiator, rocked the dance community. They followed that up with a slew of remixes ranging from Electro to House to Dutch and everything in between. Autoerotique's latest release is sure to be a big summer tune. It blends together a deep house synth and electro-punk with a couple small breakbeat sections.

Artist profile - Harvard Bass

San Diego producer Victor Hugo Ramos, aka Harvard Bass has had a great year. His productions arent like the huge cookie cutter bangers that everyone is trying to imitate these day. Instead, they electrify you in such a sophisticated way that you know the music definitely got its education from an Ivy League school. Bringing everything from minimal to techno to electro, Harvard Bass is a great representative for the growing Southern California music scene. Although he just started producing tracks a couple years ago, the So Cal native is quickly rising to the top of today's big newcomers. Unlike your typical minimal music, Harvard Bass's eclectic style hits harder and adds in some electro and groovy house. Its loud and it will make you dance. Harvard Bass is creatively bringing back the old minimal sound and making it his own.

The Ashton Shuffle - I Wanna See You(Harvard Bass remix)

If you liked the experimental sound of Tiga's Mind Dimension, you will like this one. Has a LOT more structure to it than Mind Dimension, but captures that same unique gritty sound.

Zombie Nation - Seas of Grease(Harvard Bass remix)

The Crookers have been in love with this production lately. It's a perfect example of how Harvard Bass spices up a song with his heavy minimal style. A+ drum work in this.

Am I really posting about Tiesto?!

The sound of world-renowned Dutch trance guru Tiesto has been changing recently. This is evident in his recent collaborations. I'd never expect to see him to team up with some of these guys, but somehow they work well. These two new tracks showcase Tiesto's fresh new style. When was the last time Tiesto had a track at 128 bpm? It seems as though Tiesto is reinventing himself, straying away from his trance anthem roots. Love him or not, I'd like to hear more of this new Tiesto.

Tiesto, Sebastian Ingrosso, Avicii - Generations

Tiesto hit the studio with Swedish House Mafia member, Sebastian Ingrosso, and fellow up and coming Swedish DJ, Avicii. It has that SHM flavor to it with a deep bass.

Tiesto and Diplo - C'mon

Diplo has played a significant role in the growing popularity of Baile funk here in the States. This is one collaboration that I would have never imagined. But once again, it works. C'mon has a heavier bass, bangs hard, and includes some of Tiesto's prog synths.

Can I Have Your Antention Please!

Can't find too much information on DJ Antention, except that he is from Russia. Not too many well known acts coming out of Russia these days. This guy is going to put Russia on the map.

DJ Antention - Jump!

Jump! is dark and has a pulsating bass with a nasty kick drum thats likely to blow up your speakers.

DJ Antention - Jump! (Oddword Remix)

A+ Remix, adds in some nice woop woops in there.

Artist profile - Boemklatsch

I recently heard some greats things about Boemklatsch and was lucky enough to receive some promos from them. To put it simply, Boemklatsch is an electro group from the Netherlands. But that is quite an understatement. This group is the complete package, creating a mind blowing show with a variety of music from dirty electro to fidget to funk and a live visual performance. Starting as a hip hop act, Boemklatsch now consists of 3 DJs/producers (DJ $jammie the Money, DJ Illvester, and DJ Mike Mago), a crowd pumping MC (MC Attic), and the VJing duo Ramkraak (Mark Assies and Roel Oude Nijhuis). Individually they are extremely talented, but put them all together and you got an ass shaking, head bopping, visually insane dance party. Their new album, Spontaneous Combustion, was recently released in the Netherlands and I had a chance to preview it. The very impressive album should be getting picked up for release to the rest of the world very soon. Spontaneous Combustion features 2 CDs with hard hitters track after track. The album even has a heat sensitive cover (check it out for yourself: )

Here are two tracks (320 kbps!) available for download that they let me spread. The first is a heavy electro banger, while the 2nd more funky track slows things downs a bit with some tribal elements.

Dont forget to follow these guys on their Myspace ( and Twitter ( Make sure to check out all the songs on their Soundcloud page ( If you like what you hear, go pick up some songs from Beatport ( - Boemklatsch)


Dubstepping It...Metallica style!!

Dubstep master Bassnectar has been melting faces with the outrageous bass from his recent productions. His new bootleg takes Metallica's electric guitar samples from Seek & Destroy and layers it on top of some earth shaking bass. And including in this post is a first for Electronic Eargasm, a download link to the song (credit to Bassnectar himself). Enjoy.

Huge New Songs From Electronic Eargasm's Favorites

After a huge face lift and the unveiling of the double-E Electronic Eargasm logo, the blog is ready to blow up.

This post features producers that have already made it on the blog before but are so good, that these new releases from them had to get posted

THE creme de la creme of this post. Here is Deadmau5's newest release, Some Chords. I absolutely love this song. This one was featured in one of my videos I posted about the Deadmau5 show I went to a couple weeks ago. Some Chords was released just 3 days ago, and it went straight to the #1 position on A++++++++++++

Here is yet another enormous release. Right behind Some Chords in the chart is the huge hit from the Swedish House Mafia. After being debuted at WMC, "One" has received rave reviews and I personally can't wait to hear it blast from the speakers at Electric Daisy Carnival.

Newest track from the duo known as Dada Life. I'm not the biggest fan of the vocals, but Dada Life makes it up with a massively heavy tune with crazy synths.

Mr. Felguk is back once again with the funky electro. Vocals on this one is much better.

Not looking so lazy with this one.

Spencer & Hill vs. She's All That - Jump (various mixes)

Here are a bunch of new tracks thanks to Spencer & Hill. The German duo team up with She's All That to release Jump. Best part of the release is that it is jam packed with 4 solid mixes. The vocal sample is used in all the mixes, with each mix having a unique flavor, ranging in style from electro to indie dance, and some fidget.

The original club mix bring in some wobbles with Spencer & Hill's electro style.

Oliver Twitz adds in some fidget flavor with a sick deep synth.

Alex Kidd delivers a Indie Dance rendition of the song.

Exactly what you would expect from Electrixx.... heavy electro.
