After winning over the EDM world with their mind blowing remixes of Rattle by Bingo Players and Make It Bun Dem by Skrillex, I’ve been on the edge of my seat to hear what Josie Martin & Ethan Davis (known collectively as Candyland) would have in store for us next, and they did not disappoint with their new EP coming out on Spinnin’ Records.
It’s A Shark!
Some heavy Moombahton from Candyland and Big Chocolate to start it out, with some funny Youtube samples to put a smile on your face. Can’t help but notice the tie to Feed Me’s sound, especially Thumbs Up (For Rock & Roll), but always having a sound of their own, this be some dirty Moombahton. Dirty growling bass, heavy wobbles and skanky vibes, Candyland knows how to start off an EP.
Bring The Rain
An Electro House/Nu-Disco anthem! A high energy beauty of a track; the combination of Lexi Forche’s Voice and the piano give you those warm fuzzy feelings, building into a funk filled glitch bass assault, and you can’t help but dance as it evolves into a Nu-Disco banger. These two never cease to seamlessly combine sub-genres.
High energy half time DnB with a little reggae feel and a great combo of deep and funk bass. It’s like Krewella meets Kill The Noise, another brilliant musical emulsion.
Taking this one a little out of Electro House, Get Wild has more of a Tiesto style house sound, breaking down in the end to some filthy alarm filled Moombahton.
All You Gotta Do
Massive Glitch Hop from Candyland and MakO, with some heavy, Tipper-esque bass wobbles and high intensity flows from Maksim., this one drops with skin tingling ferocity.
Castle of Affair
Soft syths and beautiful vocals from Peter Dawson climax into some filthy Dubstep that takes you by surprise. Classic tension inducing builds mix with dirty Dubstep, relaxing Chillstep and a little dose of Drumstep for good measure.
Bring The Rain (Bonus Version)
And to close it all out, they leave us with a beautifully orchestrated acoustic version of Bring The Rain. Full of rich textures and beautiful piano, it’s enough to send chills down your spine.
Born and raised in Northern Michigan, my music background is more jazz and jam band than EDM, but my love of the funky and experimental brought me to love all things EDM. I’m currently studying wine, and hope that and music will take me all over the globe.
