Dubstep, Electro-House, Preview | Skrillex – Puppy

Posted by on February 18, 2013

Well it seems that Skrillex may have an album coming this Summer. It is about time he started to make releases from his massive vault of tracks. The video is a commercial for G-Star Denim, which features the first known single that may or may not be a part of the album. “The Art of RAW,” (clearly a play on words of the book, “The Art of War”), is described by Skrillex as a blend of Electro-House, Dubstep, and fidget. An interesting blend for sure, I am happy that I actually enjoy this clip. The “Bangarang EP” was boring in my opinion, it baffles me that Skrillex managed to pull a Grammy from the title single. A creatively wild track such as this only leaves me wondering if an album would be all that we have been hoping for over the past 2 years. At this point it’s hard to say, and just as Skrillex has stated LPs in the past, this Summer could end up another disappointment. I’m sure there is just a lot of confusion between his upcoming Dog Blood releases and his new project with Diplo and A-Trak.

Edit: Well, it turns out that the track is not called “The Art of Raw” but is in fact named “Puppy”.


Dubstep | Tristam & Braken – Flight

Posted by on February 15, 2013

Tristam & Braken - FlightThis is one of the best Dubstep tracks out right now. After giving everyone the biggest tease of a clip earlier this week, we can finally dip our ears into the amazing melody of this track. Tristam & Braken turned out to be a dynamic duo with this. In a way I hope that no one remixes this, it is just too good to waste bad remixes on. To be honest, I have no idea who Braken is and I cannot for the life of me find his Facebook. Monstercat doesnt even refer to Braken. Who ever he is, I want to know. Big ups to both Tristam and Braken for this incredible track.


Preview, Trance | Dash Berlin Ft. Chris Madin – Fool For Life (Dash Berlin 4AM Remix)

Posted by on February 11, 2013

Dash Berlin Ft. Chris Madin - Fool For Life (Dash Berlin 4am Remix)“#musicislife” is by far my favorite album of 2012. Since its release, the question on my mind has been, which track will Dash Berlin create a 4am remix of? I am happy that they chose “Fool For Life.” It is definitely one of my top 5 favorites from the album, but I feel it has more versatility for a remix than the other tracks do. Only having heard this preview of the remix, I have to say I enjoy Dash Berlin’s piano and synth progression much more than the original. The drop is something different than most Trance listeners are use to hearing. It has a little bit of a breakbeat vibe to it but still has that progressive flow anyone can fall in love with. This remix makes me even more excited to soak in ASOT at UMF this year. This remix is set to release on Aropa Records on February 28th.



Dubstep | Seven Lions – Isis (VIP)

Heard a 3 minute clip of this VIP about a month back, since it basically vanished from the public’s memory. This is incredible, Seven Lions made this a Merry Christmas indeed.


Dubstep | R Rated #55

Posted by on November 15, 2012

I found it very difficult tonight to pull up a lot of tracks perfect for R Rated, eh, it happens. Let’s have Bassex start this one off right.

Now Konec has a sweet EP coming out on November 19th, it contains a few sweet originals of his, but also this filthy Dubstep/Electro remix from Poisound. The clip below shows the Dubstep half of the track and the Electro half. Damn, he brought the heat with this remix.

Next we have a good-bye (for now) from LFOMG. He will be taking a hiatus from producing for a while, but made sure not to leave us empty handed.

Teen is just another one of those randoms that cross my path, lucky for him it happened to be in prep for this post. Starts out with an alien like intro then drops into some crazy filth. Was not expecting something like this.

Time to finish off with a bang. Just found out who Davip was the other day. This remix of his just dropped a few days ago off Backdrafts “Revolution Remixes.” Sev and I are suckers for the Reggae vibes mixed with Dubstep. This track takes it in a direction neither of us are use to. Breakbeat, Reggae Filth.

Dubstep, Preview | The Prototypes – Suffocate (Koven Remix)

Posted by on November 4, 2012

Koven (previously Coven, name change due to a lawsuit), is definitely a favorite of mine, considering I have many favorites, but its hard not to when you listen to a lot of music on a daily basis. Koven is a bass machine. He has countless amazing released originals and remixes, including a large arsenal of unreleased tunes including this awesome upcoming remix of The Prototypes’ “Suffocate.” From the clip, the vocals are used properly, but what really gets to you is the extremely heavy bassline using identical synths to those that made Killsonik famous. Koven has show he can adapt his own style in many different ways. This remix releases November 11th.



Electro-House | Mathy Muso – Blue Balls

Posted by on September 27, 2012

There is a funny story behind the name of this track. Mathy uploaded a clip a few days ago, the clip was all intro and build up with no drop. I knew that before hand, but made a joke how I basically had blue balls because of all the build up and no release…haha. Mathy decided to finish the track and name it “Blue Balls” in honor. Those of you who don’t know what it is, let Google be your friend. I warn you not to search in images as on my search for a picture for this post I have seen things that cannot be unseen, and it really is not what you would expect. Some pictures involved hospitals and guts so to speak, completely changing my reality of the understanding of how bad it can be. Anyways, this turned out to be an awesome Electro-House track.
