Promise Land release first full EP for STMPD RCRDS: Blippy EP
Those talented Italians Promise Land are back with another killer EP. With their enormous remix of Blinders’ Melt (Tasty) proving a big hit for STMPD RCRDS, label boss Martin Garrix has invited them back for a full EP. The results are spectacular.

The title track draws influences from techno and bass, with the subtle melodics of the taut arpeggiated riff set against stomping on-beat percussion and futuristic machine sounds. They all combine to make for a scintillating slice of sci-fi music, with a huge breakdown that delivers even more dark sounds to build the dramatic tension. This one should be at home in a huge range of DJs’ sets.
“Feel It”it is a manic track that pushes the boundaries of house music, mixing infectious percussion with a nagging, twisted main riff that is as mischievous as it is infectious. Bass house techniques are employed to keep things spicy, with a monster breakdown used to propel this beast even higher.
Look out for much more from this talented twosome in the months to come, with many of the scene’s major players set to show their support through their upcoming releases.
EAUXMAR turns up the euphoric vibe on Blame
Hugely impressive newcomer EAUXMAR became the youngest artist to release on STMPD RCRDS at the age of just 18, following in the prodigious footsteps of label boss, Martin Garrix. His “Tell Me EP” has been a firm favourite with STMPD fans, and this follow-up single “Blame” continues his superb work.

“Blame” is a remarkably sophisticated and musical composition, full of life and charisma from the first note. Pitched vocals create a heavenly feel over sweet chords and warm live bass tones before a loose, head-nodding beat shimmies into focus. A stack of resampled organ chords stabs create a hazy groove that nods to classic house with a ravey feel, leading us to a blissed-out breakdown where sustained bass notes soothe your ears and body. The euphoric vocal cut-ups send hands reaching skyward for the final push, with that irresistible groove returning for a final stomping workout.
EAUXMAR had the pleasure of playing his first proper gig recently, with his set at the STMPD RCRDS ADE party very much a successful baptism of fire. Influenced by the melodic new skool swing of the likes of Disclosure and Kaytranada, he is a seriously hot property.
