BSTV: DJ Muggs [Video]

DJ Muggs

Legendary L.A. beatmaster DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill fame recently visited New York City and we connected with the production icon to find out how he discovered bass music and how it culminated into his Bass in Your Face featuring cameos by Chuck D, Dizzee Rascal, Danny Brown and more. “The thought came in about ’09,” Muggs tells us in this exclusive BSTV video. “I sat down, I grabbed the MPC and I go, This ain’t gonna work. So then it became a learning process for me — learning the production techniques of electronic music which is way different from how I produce hip-hop. I took about six months to learn and study.”

“I’m addicted to bass,” he confessed, adding that the beats are done for his next two albums. “I’m gonna keep making my hip-hop albums. I’ve got an experimental album coming out called Cross My Heart, and I’m gonna keep making my bass records and experimenting and push sound and push dimensions with this. Music is free, man. It’s in the air. There should be no boundaries and no limits on it.”

Deadmau5 Names Next LP ‘> album title goes here <'

Joel “deadmau5” Zimmerman is making news today and it doesn’t have to do with calling out an electronic music festival social media or dissing fellow artists in an interview. It seems Zimmerman has been hunkered down in the studio as of late, and it allowed him to finish his new album, the strangely titled > album title goes here <, which will be released on September 25. Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance, fronts new single “Professional Griefers” due out on August 14, and the album includes collaborations with Imogen Heap (“Telemiscommunications”), Chris James (“The Veldt”) and Cypress Hill (“Failbait”). Zimmerman’s next North American performance is confirmed for Saturday, September 22, in Las Vegas for the iHeartRadio Music Festival, which will also feature one of the final performances by Swedish House Mafia.
