French electronic duo Dirtyphonics today unveil their genre-bending album, ‘Magnetic,’ on Monstercat Uncaged.

‘Magnetic’ marks a triumphant return showcasing the evolution of the duo’s sound in the last decade.

Dirtyphonics have taken over the global electronic scene with their eclectic soundscapes, delivering adrenaline-pumping sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Rampage, EDC Las Vegas, Ministry of Sound, Hollywood Palladium, and more. They have collaborated and made official remixes for heavyweights including Skrillex, Kaskade, Excision, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, and Monstercat community favourites including Sullivan King on “Hammer” and Bossfight on “Evil Inside.” Their recent single, “You Want Me” with Circadian, blew up in the digital and live circuit with multiple viral videos (here and here), received support from Charlie Tee, Sub Focus, Delta Heavy, Andromedik, K Motionz, Sara Landry, Dimension, Culture Shock, 1991, and landed #2 on Beatport’s Drum & Bass chart.

The 12-track album features collaborations with Micah Martin, SampliFire, IVORY, and others, showcasing a range of Dirtyphonics’ production skills through heavy music (Drum & Bass, Bass House, Dubstep, and Metal) and their early influences, portraying their love for different tempos and how they sculpt sounds to into their own. ‘Magnetic’ symbolises the universal idea of attraction. Living in an era where we experience division and toxicity, the duo wanted to focus on drawing what makes the present moment by embracing authenticity and the best version of ourselves through positive magnetic forces. Taking inspiration from their 15 years of making music together, Dirtyphonics honed in on the magical dynamic that drives them. Being a duo, they tend to notice a push-pull tension, like a magnet, and although it can be challenging, it nurtures their creative force and makes their differences their strengths.

In “Concentrate,” the album’s lead single, Dirtyphonics transports listeners through a Melodic Techno-inspired cinematic journey. With its sharp basslines and awakening synths, the record is a boundless experience that elicits the sensation of travelling through space. This is a signature theme that appears throughout Dirtyphonics’ discography, highlighting their ability to transport listeners through their power of sound.

Dirtyphonics shares, “As DJs on stage, we attract the attention of the crowd and channel it into a unified energy. For an instant, whether it’s at a show or through this new album we all become one with the music, acting as the magnet that attracts and leads us in the same direction. We’ve infused these ideas in the artworks through the use of ferrofluids, a liquid that comes to life when attracted by the poles of a magnet. We all are like ferrofluids, the music is the magnet, and our album is ‘Magnetic.’”

The future is looking bright for Dirtyphonics, as the duo gear up for festival performances at Rampage Open Air, Tomorrowland, Parookaville, Let It Roll, Dreambeach Festival, Nibirii Festival, and multiple shows in France including La Rhapsodie on May 17th, Rochexpo on May 18th, Ohlala Festival on June 8th, and Motocultor Festival on August 17th, and many more.
