EDM stands for Electronic Dance Music. When a song doesn’t fit into a certain category, it’s called EDM. Varien is has mainly focused on dub step, but he’s made morphine, which was also in Monstercat 011, and it is one of the most interesting songs I’ve heard in a while. Varien loves “layering” his tracks, so there are very subtle additions to the song that make it sound fuller and richer. In the beginning, he uses sound loops of aggressive strings and orchestras to make the song sound more intense. I usually don’t like Varien’s works because he focuses more on heavy metal and dub step, but this one really caught my ear because he slowed it down to 100 bpm but kept the dubstep and metal influences intact; not an easy thing to do. If you like it, you can get it on iTunes or Monstercat’s own site. If you want to see how he made the song, he’s given a full rundown.
This is a beautiful android app created by songkick. The app scans your library (with a cool animation to go along with it). Once it’s finished, it’ll give you a list of concerts that are coming up for the music artists in your music library. The app was featured on android niceties and it is one of the few android apps that is free and has a beautiful UI. This is also available for iOS, but it doesn’t seem to work as well on the iPhone as it does on android phones. The minimum requirement is android 2.2, which makes it the best looking app on the play store that doesn’t require ICS. Well done.
