With gritty bass house drops and commanding beats, 2x Grammy nominated producer B-Sides teams up with Los Angeles’ SWAGE for their fearless New Noise debut, “On The Floor.”
Brendan Long, better known by his stage name B-Sides, is a Grammy-nominated producer/DJ who got his start creating hit records for the likes of Dr. Dre, Lupe Fiasco, and The Lonely Island. He has since transitioned his talent for creating hip hop records into producing innovative trap and bass music with a hip hop flare. Up until 2016, he was a teacher at the famed Icon Collective Production School in Los Angeles, where he mentored some of EDM’s brightest young DJs including NGHTMRE, Slander, Kayzo, and Jauz. In addition to releasing original works on Dim Mak, Spinnin, Ultra, Mad Decent, and Buygore, his remix of DJ Snake’s “Let Me Love You” with Slander has earned over 8 million Soundcloud plays.
With support from Steve Aoki, Don Diablo, and Borgore, rising producer SWAGE is undoubtedly a name to watch in 2017. This year he has toured around the world, with performances at Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, and in Japan as an opening act for Ghastly. His innovative way of blending breaks with trap on original tracks “How We Do” and “High Stakes” have earned him praise from Dancing Astronaut, RunTheTrap, and YourEDM. Evidenced by his broad catalogue and international tour schedule, the sky’s the limit for SWAGE and there’s no telling what he will do next.
New Noise is Dim Mak’s new music discovery imprint that focuses on cutting edge sounds from burgeoning artists across the genre spectrum. Launched in 2010, New Noise got its start as a compilation series highlighting fresh faces handpicked by Steve Aoki and crew. By 2015, the platform evolved into a bi-weekly, free-download model based on singles. New Noise’s current incarnation is a copyright free model that allows the budding community of Twitch gamers and amateur YouTube content creators to use New Noise music in their videos and live streams sans purchase or fees, all in exchange for linking back to the artists and their music.
