PURGE x METAHESH ‘Love You’ [Dim Mak]:
Coming off performances at this year’s Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, EDC Las Vegas and opening for Rusko, the rising duo PURGE continues to make headway with their rebellious and forward-thinking approach to electronic music. Instead of using masks or helmets, the uniquely branded duo uses a glitch-like effect to hide their faces across social media platforms, redirecting attention solely towards their music. The duo gained traction and heaps of media attention in the fall of 2016 with their debut release Feel Your Love via Skrillex’s imprint and media platform, Nest HQ. This EP inspired the duo to continue genre-bending while maintaining gritty, technical sounds and a haunting dark bass as their personalized paradigm. Since then, they have released music on Elysian Records and ArtistIntelligenceAgency’simprint, Type91, receiving support from the likes of Krewella, SanHolo, QUIXand more.
Joining PURGE on “Love You” is up-and-coming Russian producer METAHESH. Filling his productions with ephemeral vocals sewn through looming basslines and cinematic soundscapes, METAHESH is known for his unique spin on chill trap. His edit of Sia’s “Elastic Heart” landed him a spot on Magnetic Mag’s Top 10 Trap Tracks of 2016.
New Noise is Dim Mak’s new music discovery imprint that focuses on cutting-edge sounds from burgeoning artists across the genre spectrum. New Noise originally got its start as a compilation series highlighting fresh faces handpicked by Steve Aoki and the Dim Mak crew. Since then, the platform has evolved into a bi-weekly, free-download model based on singles. New Noise’s current incarnation is also copyright free, which allows the budding community of Twitch gamers and amateur YouTube creators to use New Noise music in their videos and live streams without the need to purchase or pay fees, all in exchange for linking back to the artists and their music.
