Compilation, Featured | Mach’s Top 10 Free Downloads & Top 10 Purchases of 2013

Posted by on January 2, 2014

Mach's Top 10 of 20132013 was an interesting year to say the least for music. Trap rose up faster than many of us expected, EDM is now a huge part of mainstream music, and the festival scene rules the industry and the interwebz. My favorite things to come out of 2013 are the ever growing R&B sub-genres that have made the bedroom much more seductive than usual and the up and coming blend of Drum & Bass and Glitch-Hop, called Neuro-Hop that provides a funky kick to your usual bass music. This year has been filled with disappoints as well, the festival scene has led to much more repetitive productions leaving one to wonder if people actually pay attention to the music anymore. Dubstep seems to no longer be about the progression, but more about how many different bass sounds one can fit into the drop. Music is still and will always be a fan driven industry, and it’s evolution will always vary year by year.

As I have done in previous years, my top 10 consists of two lists. A top 10 of free music and a top 10 of purchased music. This post also marks my retirement and is the last one I will write. I have been a member of FNT for three years now. In that time I have learned a lot about music that I have had the privilege of teaching and passing on to others. I am sad to leave, but am excited for the new chapters of my life in the industry. I would like to thank FNT for the opportunities I have had and for the friends I have made because of it. More importantly I would like to thank  the artists who make the music I have fallen in love with and you, the fans that have continued to fuel my love of music. Let’s begin.


Dubstep | KOAN Sound-Funk Blaster (Culprate remix) & Loadstar-Passenger (Culprate Remix)[Prev]

Posted by on June 28, 2012

Culprate is destroying the scene right now with his unique style of glich and dubstep blended together. First we have a preview of one of his upcoming releases that went up on UKF yesterday. Absolutely smashing remix to Loadstar’s DnB tune Passenger that was also uploaded to the UKFDrum&Bass channel a few weeks ago. I think the original DnB tune maybe a little heavier, but I’m torn between which one I like more. Either way Culprate is tearing his remixes apart, which leads us to his next massive freebie that was given away today. His remix to KOAN Sound’s Funk Blaster, which has been a highlight to many artist sets. You should know what to expect by now; it’s that glich-step style from Cuplrate with some funk provided by KOAN. Also as a heads, be on the lookout for Culprate’s remix of Skrillex’s Make It Bun Dem which has been recorded at a few live shows and should be surfacing soon.
