Exciting newcomers Blastranauts hit the scene straight from LA, and today sees the premiere of their debut Blast Off EP exclusively on LessThan3.
Formed in 2013, Americans Aria So_rowdy and Nicolas II created Blastranauts to address “the stagnant tech house scene.” Their Blast Off EP showcases the duo’s trademark sound, a cross between Melbourne Bounce and Dutch House, with two original tracks and a remix sure to set fire to nightclub patrons and festival-goers alike.
Primal rockets off the launch pad with an addictive, upbeat bassline and continues along with rapid-fire synths and vocal effects, while a quick buildup leads into a drop that can only be described as gloriously fun. The included remix by BlackGummy gives a darker personality to the original with a dubstep rendition. Exhale takes on a completely different narrative than its EP brethren, reflecting Blastranauts’ ability to produce a wide range of EDM subgenres. The big room track begins with echoing, euphoric chords and a Dutch-inspired buildup that transitions into a dark, upbeat chorus line.
With plans on playing over 50 shows and releasing three more EPs this year, Blastranauts is definitely an exciting act to follow in 2014. Be sure to grab your free download of the Blast Off EP on SoundCloud today!
