Gammer – THE DROP EP
Matthew Lee, better known as Gammer, has paved his way to success from an early age with roots deeply embedded in UK’s hardcore rave scene. Since 2002, Gammer has revolutionized the genre, establishing himself as one of the top Hardcore DJ’s and receiving awards such as the coveted ‘Best Hardcore DJ’ award for multiple consecutive years. In more recent years however, the eccentric young producer has begun pushing the boundaries within the scene. By shifting away from the confines of his hardcore identity he enters into a new realm of dance music.
Gammer has dabbled into different sounds with high profile edits of tracks by Nero, Jack U, Slander, Porter Robinson, and Marshmello. His collaborations with artists like Kayzo and Kill The Noise have also contributed to his recent style crossover. Now, Gammer is debuting original content off of his new EP THE DROP that fuses together trap and dubstep with a familiar hardcore tempo, gaining the attention of a much wider audience while also staying true to his roots. Although some fans within the hardcore community have expressed disappointment with his shift in sound, Gammer makes it clear that opinions of others won’t stop him from evolving as an artist. This EP is a true testament to that.
THE DROP begins with a filthy introduction of two previously released tracks that sets the tone for whats to come on this explosive EP. Gammer’s first ever solo dubstep track “Lets Get Crunk” is infused with a heavy bass line complemented with energizing buildups that lead into mind blowing dubstep. The EP then shifts gears with “Stay Tonight” which begins with a fast paced tempo followed by slower, more euphoric synths and pleasant vocals by soul singer Dylan Matthew that eventually picks the tempo back up and leads into a wild drumstep style drop.
The last two tracks, which have finally been released, only add more fuel to this already lit EP. “Beam of Light” is a smooth transition from “Stay Tonight” with a similar blend of a fast rhythm incorporated with more stunning synths and vocals. Finally, the EP ends with the most highly anticipated track of all. “The Drop” has been one of the most sought after ID requests since DJ Snake opened with it during his set at Coachella this past year. With a dreamy Porter like introduction followed by an explosion of heavy bass, it is rightfully deserving of the title for the entire EP. We are truly inspired by Matthew Lee’s unwavering desire to continue evolving as an artist despite the criticism, and we can’t wait to see what he does next. Give THE DROP EP a listen below now.

With the Amsterdam Dance Event drawing in such massive crowds, there were bound to be some hiccups here and there. At the Amsterdam Music Festival this past Saturday, Cali-native KSHMR fell victim to some technical difficulties. During KSHMR’s AMF set, he apparently could not get the correct track to play. He expressed his apology to fans via social media:
AMF thank you, not sure what happened, every time I picked a song it started playing a different one. Sorry I couldn’t give u the full show
— KSHМR (@KSHMRmusic) October 21, 2018
It’s a pretty crappy thing to happen at such a high-profile event. Taking place at Amsterdam’s famed Johan Cruijff Arena, AMF 2018 featured the likes of Axwell/Ingrosso, W&W, Lost Frequencies, Vini Vici, and the entertaining Salvatore Ganacci. KSHMR was apparently the only one who suffered from these audio issues.
Good friend and fellow performing artist Lost Frequencies offered up a sympathetic word and hopeful fix:
I had it once, it was when i updated my usb on another laptop ! Maybe that was the problem ?
— Lost Frequencies (@LFrequencies) October 21, 2018
Moral of the story? No matter how big we get, sometimes even the smallest things can go wrong. All signs point to the fact that KSHMR still absolutely crushed his set, so all’s well that ends well.
KSHMR was recently voted #18 in the controversial DJ Mag Top-100 poll. He is also in the heart of the North American leg of “The Giant Tour” after finishing up in Asia. You can next catch him at Escape: Psycho Circus in San Bernardino.
Check out his most recent single ‘Good Vibes Soldier’ below on Spotify. Don’t worry – no technical difficulties expected.

Tiesto‘s Tijs Michiel Verwest and haute couture model Annika Backes revealed their engagement to the world via Instagram and Twitter. After two years of courtship, Generation Z Backes and 48-year-old Tiesto prove that age is just a number. Verwest’s proposal occurred at the One&Only Reethi Rah resort in Maldives amid his vigorous, intercontinental tour schedule.
Artists such as Dyro, Firebeatz, APEK, Bassjackers and
Lexy PanterraIngrosso applauded Tiesto for popping the question. Whereas, Tijs’ protege Martin Garrix still has yet to put in his two cents.
“I am the luckiest girl in the world to get to spend the rest of my life with the best man ever,” gushed Backes. “I love you more than you will ever know!”
