Dubstep, Review | Datsik — Vitamin D

Posted by on April 10, 2012

All the heavy dub heads have been waiting for this day to see Datsik release all his hard work onto his first album “Vitamin D”. Being a fan of Datsik and knowing the potential he has; I went into listening to this album with very high hopes. Known for putting out some of the filthiest songs it is safe to say Datsik is pretty well known for his heavy wobbles and crunch sounds. After giving the album a full listen I can say that it didn’t meet the expectations I had for it. As far as the structure of the album goes I will give Datsik the credit of having a nice flow from one song to the next. My problem was with the overall uniqueness of each track and the incorporation of new sounds. Yes, Datsik has some of the sickest sounds and remixes in dubstep, but the repetition of similar or exact same sounds was just too much for me in this album. By the third or fourth song I already knew what sounds and synths he was going to use throughout the track and the drop with maybe a few additions. Nevertheless, I did have a few favorites on the album that I do recommend listening to. Punisher easily took the top spot for me on this album as the dominant track that stood out.  This collaboration with Downlink was filled with heavy bass and Datsik’s signature wobbles combined with Downlink’s style . This track also included some snippets of Biggie vocals which worked out very well. My other three favorites were Syndrome, Complete Control, and Annihilate all for close to similar reasons as Punisher. Just because I didn’t favor this album as much as I hoped too, shouldn’t by any means discourage you guys from not listening to it all the way through.

Dubstep | Foxes – Youth (Adventure Club Remix)

Posted by on February 1, 2012

Adventure Club brings their trademark wobbles to this moody, deceptively chilled out remix. Really feeling the almost hypnotic way they’ve chopped the vocals in counterpoint to the background synths towards the end of the track. I’ve been very impressed by everything Adventure Club has put out lately and definitely think we’ll be seeing a lot more of these guys in 2012….

Mashups | DOSVEC – Rain Away

Posted by on January 31, 2012

DOSVEC mixed it up a little this week. He went back to a dubstep mashup, but with a different, wobblier vibe. Being an old Red Hot Chili Peppers fan, I love the intro of this track, Adele’s voice sounds incredible over that guitar. Once the wobbles dropped I was slightly taken away, for the fact that I would have never thought to put wobbles with Adele’s voice, nor would I have though it would work as well as it does. DOSVEC undoubtedly with another top notch mashup BANGER!

I am not usually a fan of long mixes, but after listening all the way through this one it had to be posted. This one hour mix is packed with 15 unreleased tunes as well as tons of other bangers perfect for any occasion where heavy bass and wobbles are needed.

Electro-House | Dev Ft. Enrique Iglesias – Naked (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!)

Posted by on December 12, 2011

DJ Kue is an animal when it comes to remixing these poppy mainstream tracks. This newest remix of his is nothing like what he has done before. Yes, it is electro-house, but he seemed to have settled on some new synths than I am use to hearing from him. The drop has some sweet electro wobbles. I think the vocals sound great on the beat he created, but for those of you who just want the instrumental, as always DJ Kue has provided.

Here’s some fire to start your Friday night right. The producer duo, 3 Stripes, took B.o.B’s single “Bet I” and added some wobbles and heavy bass to make a monster remix that will have you dancing in your chair. I bet you’ve never heard B.o.B likes this! If you like this, be sure to check out the rest of 3 Stripes’ catalog on Soundcloud.

Dubstep | Smash + Destroy, Zomboy, and Urban Knights | Dubstep

Posted by on August 2, 2011

This is technically a mashup, but considering how good this is it belongs here. This track has the best of both worlds when it comes to heavy and soft tracks. The drop of course is sick, and the build up is perfect. You got to have this.

This remix is INSANE! Zomboy destroyed this track, in my opinion this is so much more awesome than the original.

This last track is one of the coolest remixes. The reggae start up is sweet. Once you hit the drop its nice, and then the wobbles a bit and it sounds epic.
