Clint Stewart – Throwing Stones | EP

Clint Stewart – Throwing Stones | EP Comments


Couldn't be happier for my boy Clint's second solo effort on Second State. Here he brings us two big room jams. With the Throwing Stones EP he takes the same approach as he did with the previous Warpaint EP by going for two different vibes on either side of the record.

On the A side we have 'Throwing Stones'; a peak time club tune perfect for dark spaces and strobe lights. With giant rolling sub bass, a heavy kick, crisp hi hats and crunchy hand claps the groove slowly grows into a big break with atmospheric chimes and vocal snippets. Soon you are lost in an ethereal break, but suddenly snapped back into reality as the bass changes and a single looping synth takes center stage creating a driving yet euphoric peak time floor filler.

With the flip side, Clint goes for a warmer, uplifting tone with 'Come Undone'. Starting with finger snaps and a growing arpeggio, the vibe slowly builds as big toms and dreamy atmospherics introduce a massive sub bass line. As a shaker creeps up and another synth blends with the original arpeggio the beat finally drops. A solid four to the floor groove ensues and culminates into a wash of delayed chimes as the breakdown introduces the lead; an unforgettable brass line that is sure to have all the hands in the air at a sunny open air or a morning at the club.

Get ready to get cosmic as fuck with this release.

Resident Advisor’s 2014 Top 100 DJs & Top 20 Live Act Poll Results & Review

Resident Advisor’s 2014 Top 100 DJs & Top 20 Live Act Poll Results & Review Comments

Another year, another installment of the Resident Advisor polls for the Top 100 DJs and Top 20 Live Acts in the books! At this point we all know the DJ Mag Top 100 poll is seemingly worthless popularity contests directly linked to #hashtags and twitter mentions rather than actual fans voting for actually talented deejays. Thus, we praise RA for their method of conducting polls that allow both DJs and Live Acts to have their chance to be ranked against their peers through legitimate forms. Not CONTINUE READING
