Summer is heating up for Los Angeles-based electro house production duo COLD BLANK, who today (Monday, July 2) released “Onslaught” featuring Andy Taylor (Duran Duran’s original lead guitarist). On “Onslaught,” Taylor—who has worked with Robert Palmer, Rod Stewart, Paul Rodgers and more—meshes his legendary guitar skills with COLD BLANK’s signature electro house sound, perfectly bridging the worlds of rock and electronic dance music.

About COLD BLANK:
Destroying dancefloors everywhere with massively heavy beats, Chris Gaspar and Manny Luquin, the electro house producers behind COLD BLANK, are at the top of their game. As owners of the reputable record label Burn The Fire, they have their finger on the pulse of raw electronic dance music and are keeping it pumping hard with their debut full-length album THE AGENDA, out August 6. This blistering 10-track album is filled with their trademark banging electro sound, and also sees them exploring other genres for the first time such as dubstep (“Louder Than Bombs”) and drum & bass (“Signs of Chaos”). Elsewhere on the album, collaborators and features include Andy Taylor (Duran Duran’s original lead guitarist), who lends his legendary guitar skills on the track “Onslaught,” Veela, Electric Soulside and Neon Stereo. Launching their Burn The Fire brand in 2008 with a wildly successful party in Los Angeles called Smash Disco, COLD BLANK has played a large role in shaping the scene and sound of the Southern California dance world. The next year saw their very first release chart on the Beatport Top 100 and they’ve continuously hit the marker ever since. Early tracks like “Dutchie,” “Raver Booty” and “The Lizard King” have become electro house anthems, and more recent songs like “Die Famous,” “Redroid” and “Ancient Physic Tandem War Elephant” show that COLD BLANK has no intention of slowing down. Having remixed artists like Chuckie, Robbie Rivera, Zedd, Spencer & Hill, Vandalism, Rank 1, PeaceTreaty and even Cypress Hill, Rusko and Damian Marley, their extensive catalog is supported by many top DJs including David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Tiësto, Moby, Knife Party, Axwell, John Dahlback, Morgan Page, Paul Oakenfold and more. COLD BLANK also currently host their weekly Burn The Fire radio show on the Electric Sound Stage channel on iHeartRadio.
