My good friend wrote a review for the Haunted House EP for our school’s website so I thought I’d share it! Enjoy!

Knife Party finally dropped their new 4 track EP entitled Haunted House this morning. They’ve been teasing us since Ultra and with some small clips released shortly after. Well now that it’s finally here the hype was well deserved, this EP definitely shows Knife Party going down a new and exciting road unique to themselves. Knife Party doesn’t disappoint with this genre changing EP, be sure to give it a listen and if you love it show them some support by buying it on Itunes.

The EP kicks off with “Power Glove”. The intro in Power Glove is intense; a powerful choir sample combined with a commanding drum pattern had me hitting repeat a few times before I finished the song. The main melody might be the catchiest Knife Party has made thus far. The only downside to Power Glove is the lack of variation in drops but the midsections help keep things interesting.

“LRAD” is hands down my favorite Knife Party song. The slow building intro adds intensity while the main melody slowly creeps in. When the buildup came to a halt I was expecting a typical Knife Party drop. Instead we get this heart pounding minimal drop that is infectious. The second drop adds some tribal vocal samples, which adds a completely different atmosphere to it then the first. This song has so much dynamic to it, one their best tracks yet.

“EDM Death Machine” has one of the most grin inducing intros ever. Poking fun at Skrillex, Baauer, Borgore, and themselves, then it transitions into a robot coming to live. Soon we are hit by a flurry of spastic lazers and crunchy bass. EDM Death Machine will no doubt be played throughout the festival circuit.

The EP closes with a VIP of their hit, Internet Friends. The only major change is the second drop is changed to Dubstep. It’s a fun VIP but it would have been nice to get a fourth original.

This is a solid EP, not their best, but a solid effort. LRAD is the standout track here! For those wondering why there is a lack of variation in genresThe EP is titled Haunted HOUSE, get it? It’s all Electro House bangers, minus the change in Internet Friends. But in the end this EP was enjoyable, can’t wait to see what’s next.

Mashup| Two Million Atoms Raging (ft. Avicii, Knife Party, Ryan Tedder) by Kap Slap

Kap Slap does it again with another sick mashup. This mashup he made was actually one of the tracks that he put in his Back To School Mix and that mix was unreal. This song is unreal including songs from Avicii, Knife Party, and Ryan Tedder. Also included are the lyrics from “Calling (Losing My Mind)” by Sebastian Ingrosso. Hope you enjoy this filthy mashup.

3LAU HAUS Volume #1 by 3LAU

Here is another sick half an hour mix that 3LAU put together. We all know how sick the previous mixes he put out that were half an hour long and this one is just as Unreal. This mix consists of a bunch of his previous mashups and other artists such as Axwell,  Porter Robinson, Nick Romero,  R3hab, Knife Party, and many more. Hope you guys enjoy this sick track. 3LAU never fails.

Fire Hive (Krewella Fuck On Me Remix) by Knife Party

Here is a sick remix that Krewella made from the original song Fire Hive by Knife Party. If you are interested in some heavy drops big womps and sicks beats than this song is right up your alley. Hope you enjoy!
