Tons of awesome tracks in here smoothly blended together into a hell of an awesome mix. Needless to say, I will be tuning into this weekly broadcast from now on and I am hoping to pass the love on to you guys so get ready to see a lot more DJ Icey on WLN. The tracks range from Dubstep to some of the coolest electronic remixes I’ve heard. I can barely describe the awesomeness present in this mix.

Homegrown NYC producer 23 dropped his new EP today entitled “Discordia” sharing the same name with the Greek goddess of strife and discord. This EP released on Heavy Artillery Records will make you shiver from head to toe with it’s sinister beats and rebelling synths.
Wasting no time at all 23 dives head first into the first track “Let’s Go to Lavender Town” a Pokemon tribute. The track opens with a sturdy, driving beat which then winds up, right before it drops into heavy bass. In the middle you can hear endearing vocal clips from the Pokemon trio, Ash Ketchum, Brock and Misty. They release their Pokemon on the world and chiptune influences are heard over the deep bass. After this epic bass battle it is time to move onto the next track, what lays beyond the next measure? You’ll just have to listen and find out.
To keep up the strife the track “Purge” picks up where “Let’s Go to Lavender Town” left off. The way to Lavender Town is going to be a lot more dangerous than expected. The heavy bass picks up and so does the battle while everyone lets their bass beasts purge and feed. There is little competition for 23 ‘s high-ended synth layered over fast paced bass. Nothing can stop him as he takes back the sound waves. The track lets up and you’re surrounded by the feeling that you have reached something holy, something bigger than you, that’s when you realize, the mission to Lavender City is far from over, you still have to pass through “Shamisen Rock.”
Approaching “Shamisen Rock” is crossing into new territory. The oriental intro created by the Japanese three stringed “guitar” called a Shamisen is prominent, giving this track an awesome foreign feel. Storm clouds roll in over the happy scene and it quickly darkens. The heavy bass beats away as it intertwines with distorted vocals and more accents from the Shamisen. The bass is firing bullets, entwined in a dark tango with the locals on the rock, there is no winner here, just the two forces of strife and peace trapped in an eternal dance much like Discordia (a.k.a. Eris or Strife) is with her Greek counterpart Harmonia (a.k.a. Concordia).
This is where the EP really dives into the darkness. When I started listening to this track all I could envision were war planes and fighter pilots diving down and dropping bombs. Gigantic bass bombs. 23 is on a heavy duty mission and he is relentless. The sound waves are littered with the cries of an Air Raid and you don’t want to be anywhere near when he decides to bring out the big guns. In the end all you can do is sit back and wait in extreme audio pleasure as he shatters your stapedius in the best way possible.
This EP is incredible. Following a deep, heavy story line with oriental influences and high-pitched synth to propel the myth forward. This EP leaves you in a dream-like world where strife rules all and the endless battle to get to a fair city seems unattainable. 23 hit the nail on the head with this EP, let your speakers carry out the message that “Discordia” has arrived, and isn’t taking any prisoners, except your ears.
So, i was supposed to post this 2 weeks ago now.
I heard and saw this mix live. It was insane.
That first drop reverberated throughout the entire venue.
