Monstercat

Profile:
Monstercat (previously known as Monstercat Media) is a Canadian-based independent electronic dance music record label located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Monstercat was formed during July 2011 by Mike Darlington CEO, and Ari Paunonen, COO.

The label signs artists on a non-exclusive single-track basis, allowing artists to freely move between other labels and brands. Monstercat follows a release schedule, where new music is released three times a week, in addition to an hour-long podcast that is live streamed every Tuesday on their Twitch, Beam and YouTube accounts. Once Monstercat has released thirty tracks consecutively, a new compilation album is created containing these tracks and two continuous mixes of the album.

Thank you GamerBuddy. You just perfectly described why I can't stand the bulk of new music. There is brilliance being released everyday but it's buried in the mess that you describe which is the case in almost every genre of dance music today.

Monstercat used to be SO good in 2012-2014. They released so much quality electro house (Rogue - Adventure Time), drum n bass (Feint - Snake Eyes), dubstep (Au5 - Blossom), glitch hop (Haywyre - Everchanging) and trap (Aero Chord - Boundless). They were still pretty good in 2015, but it completely went down the drain in 2016 when almost every artist on the label started releasing poppy future bass, dance-pop and overly loud trap/dubstep/electro house. There's still some good music on there, but it's overshadowed by the types of EDM I mentioned earlier. Same goes for a lot of other labels.
