We lost an absolute legend today #RIPAvicii you’ll continue to live on forever in our hearts and through your music

Genuinely heartbroken about Avicii. Not just because I was a huge fan, and massively inspired by his work, or because he was such a genuinely nice person, but he was just 28.

He had a whole life left to make music for the world and all of a sudden it’s over 😔

RIP Tim Bergling

No words can describe the sadness I’m feeling right now, hearing about Avicii passing away….💔
Thoughts go out to his family and friends…

Sadness has swept through our office at the news of @Avicii’s passing. A true talent and a source of joy and inspiration for everyone here at HQ. We’re virtually speechless but for now want to express our gratitude for his music and to say rest in peace, Avicii.

Hey Tim, I never got to meet you, but I wanted you to know that almost 11 years ago the first remix I ever did was of Seek Bromance. I remember watching all your music videos, interviews, etc. completely fascinated by the phenomena that was avicii. Thanks for inspiring us all.

No words.

The one person who inspired me to start producing in the first place.

The movement you created is timeless and your legacy will live forever.

Rest In Peace, Tim. 🖤

We are extremely saddened by the news of Avicii’s passing. Out of respect for him and his family, we have discontinued the live stream of ‘Armada Invites: KLASH Records’. Thank you for your understanding.

😥 Avicii

. @Avicii was talented and kind, and I was genuinely excited to see what would come next from him. His future most certainly should have been written beyond age 28. I am
Rest easy Tim.

— Kaskade (@kaskade) April 20, 2018

Such an eye opener for me. I was headed down a path very similar had I not made certain changes in my life. So, actually, thank you a lot Tim for helping me realize this. You’ve impacted my life in many more ways than you know. Thanks man.

I cannot express enough that @Avicii revolutionized dance music, and effortlessly. An unparalleled writer and one of my biggest inspirations will be remembered and missed for centuries to come. We love you Tim.

Damn Dude RIP #Avicii

— DJ Pauly D (@DJPaulyD) April 20, 2018

Just landed in the US and got the news that Avicii died. I hope this is’nt real. RIP #nowords

— Dannic (@dannic) April 20, 2018

my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the friends, fans and families of @Avicii 🙁 Banter aside, nobody can deny what he has accomplished and done for modern dance music and im very proud of him.

— Goat lord (@deadmau5) April 20, 2018

I would have enjoyed nothing more than ripping into Avicii well into and beyond our 60’s. taken away from us far too young. I know he’s at peace somewhere up there getting the last laugh that i spelled his name right this time.

— Goat lord (@deadmau5) April 20, 2018

We truly cannot fathom the gravity of the situation. His sudden death will impact the music industry for years to come. “Wake Me Up When It’s All Over” will never be interpreted the same way, after today. You will be missed and treasured forever. #RIPAvicii

Kendrick Lamar – HUMBLE (Skrillex Remix Frontliner Bass Edit)

ar – HUMBLE (Skrillex Remix Frontliner Bass Edit)

Oh snap Basscon heads! Dutch Hardstyle producer, Frontliner, just released his bass-heavy edit of Kendrick Lamar’sHUMBLE (Skrillex Remix)‘. After massive demand from Frontliner’s acolytes, this remix of a remix is here to blow your mind. He postponed his new solo track ‘Praise The Reversed Bass‘ just so he could debut this for you.

The “Melodyman” has always been a Kendrick fan and of the original song. However, when Skrillex released his remix, Frontliner jumped at the opportunity to add on to it. Combining his sublime melodies and intense basslines harmoniously, he continues to spread his unique sound.

The track starts off as normal with Kendrick’s rapping. Then a Tetris sound bit enters and the menacing bassline begins. A deep, hard-sounding kick drum builds with intensity and the drop hits you. Intense faded bass accompanies the beat as your head bangs to this chorus. Fists bump to the distorted horn sounds as the second verse comes in. Elements of Skrillex’s wobble bass interject at times and combine with the rhythm and groove of hardstyle.

Barry Drooger is no amateur to the genre. He takes you on a journey with this edit. Capping the track is the same hardstyle bass that gets you shufflin’, or “stampen” as the Dutch do. Recently Drooger released a sample of his lifework of bass drums and effect sounds. It’s been so influential that legendary EDM artists have started using them in their productions. 

Barry’s plans for the future are clear: steal people’s hearts through music all over the world and enjoy every moment of it. Get in on the hype and stream the track below!
