Lines In Wax

I kept forgetting to post Flux Pavillions latest EP, which Doctor P rinsed up nicely during his Adelaide Set...( The EP was out a week or two before that) so if you haven't already got your ears onto it...check it now! The EP takes a cut back approach from the usual, with more focus on melodic synth sounds..with the exception of the title track featuring Foreign Beggars.
Beggars + Dubstep = Brutality

When the sound and wholesome nature of man acts as an entirety, when he feels himself in the world as in a grand, beautiful, worthy and worthwhile whole, when this harmonious comfort affords him a pure, untrammeled delight: then the universe, if it could be sensible of itself, would shout for joy at having attained its goal and wonder at the pinnacle of its own essence and evolution.
For what end is served by all the expenditure of suns and planets and moons, of stars and Milky Ways, of comets and nebula, of worlds evolving and passing away, if at last a happy man does not involuntarily rejoice in his existence? - Goethe (1805)



Ah Downlink... you never change your sounds, but they are so pleasantly disgraceful that I just have to post this.

Emergency EP - Downlink


The next few Dubstep tracks I'm not so sure about.. I know that I love them, but these are far from heavy hitters. If you want to indulge in something atmospheric and beautiful, please just give these a try.

Dubstep Craver?




Huge synth, massive snares.. Krusha completely fucks Metric's 'Help I'm Alive' into a dubstep banger. Big.

Help I'm Alive (Krusha Remix) - Metric


Dubstep is such a versatile genre, being defined by tempo and snare placement means that Dubstep can stretch through many sub-genres, yet to be named. The next two tracks show you the different moods this one genre can place you in. Mellow Dubstep.

DUBTRASH


A little while ago whilst compiling a track list for a Reggae Dubstep mix, I came across

Dubtrash, a 23 year old DJ and producer hailing from Ireland. He has spent the last few months creating reggae influenced dubstep tracks and is steadily picking up a strong fan base online. I was immediately hooked onto his different take on dubstep, and managed to ask him a few questions about life as a producer.

What got you into producing music and dubstep in particular?
‘I've always had a huge interest in music. As a young lad I used to play all those music making games for the Playstation (Music 2000 in particular). So that's where I began my producing. As for dubstep, it's only a recent thing. I love all different kinds of music, from House, Electro and Techno, to Metal and Hip-Hop, but I first heard dubstep roughly about two years ago. It was a set by Rusko called 'Bloc Mix’ that I got free with DJ Mag, and ever since then I've gotten more and more obsessed with it. It's all I listen to now!’

How long have you been producing for?
‘I started doing it seriously this year (2010) in May, and it was initially just an experiment to see what I could do. Me and my friends spent an entire college year not doing any work and we just sat around listening to dubstep. I wanted to see if I could make my own stuff.’

What software do you use to make your music?
‘At the moment I’m using Garageband for Mac, and Audacity. They’re great little programs, but I’m gonna upgrade to Reason soon. I also like record my own sounds for tracks, guitars, vocals and percussion.’

What are your thoughts on the tendency for dubstep producers creating mainly the 'filthiest drops'?
‘Ahhhh the good old 'filthy drop'. It can be so rewarding when you see people's faces after a good fat fucker of a drop haha. It has definitely become an integral part of dubstep now. Although for me personally, most of my own tracks don't have that 'filthy' edge, they tend to flow along with a chilled out reggae groove. So, I like to think that my music has a different approach to dubstep than most other producers out there.’

What gave you the idea to produce dubstep infused with Reggae and Islamic/Arabic samples?
‘I have always had an interest in original roots style dub music. I love it’s atmosphere. Dub was an instrumental sound that originated from Jamaica, what we often hear today in dubstep is a million miles away from that. Don’t get me wrong, that ain’t a bad thing, I love the filthy robotic stuff too, but I wanted to keep that old reggae style sound in my music. As for the Arabic stuff, I’m such a music nerd. I’m always interested in different styles of music from around the world. Arab music can be so beautiful and hypnotic sounding. I wanted to see if I could make that work within a dubstep structure.’

You seem to be getting a lot of support on-line, what do you think of websites, such as Soundcloud, as mediums for getting your music out there?
‘Yeah it’s been a great year for me so far. When you consider the short amount of time I have been producing, the support I am getting is quite phenomenal. Soundcloud has definitely helped me in getting noticed and gaining fans. There’s so many talented producers out there and Soundcloud provides a great way to hear what other people are doing to help push the scene forward. I would recommend anyone, and not just producers, fans too, to join up and find some themselves some great underground music.’

Dubtrash will be releasing ‘Zion EP’ soon on Monkey Dub which will be available to buy on major online digital music stores. Release date TBC.
You can check out Dubtrash’s tracks @ Dubtrash

Forgive us our sins...



Ok so we've all been pretty busy with work/uni but heres a quick update of some major tunage...not necessarily the newest..(we haven't posted in a while) but still stomper's nevertheless!
Enjoy!

The Vocal clip in this sounds like a kid with retardation is getting all excited about the bass drop. (you'll know what I mean)

One of my favourite tracks for a while now, Just been behind on posting it :(

The track name says it all

For something different, check out Wolfgang Gartners new electro release.
It's much more catchy than his collaboration with Deadmau5, and apparently he put 3 weeks and 300 hours into making it.

Creamy Axe Wound


Underwear?



Bassnectar + Deftones. Huge!

Prince (Bassnectar Remix) - Deftones


Dillon Francis has been releasing some heavy remixes as of late.. each with their own original style.
Listen to his remix of Drop the Lime's 'Sex Sax'. It has a liquid cackle as a drop.

Sex Sax (Dillon Francis Choose Your Adventure Mix) - Drop the Lime


The next download is a 6 track Dubstep Ep by Torqux & Twist. While these guys are not new in the game, they have recently started releasing some dubbleshift worthy tracks.
Check it out.

Hotline EP - Torqux & Twist

mau5-step...

So Mr Joel Zimmerman aka Dead-Mow-5 or Deadmau5 if you prefer has been going on a bit about making some dubstep, and a completed track has finally landed.
At just under 10 minutes long, the track is built up beautifully with strong progressive house chords we've come to expect from Mr Mau5. Whilst the dub drop at the 5 minute mark isn't the most mind shattering, the vocals coupled with progressive sounds give a good indication of the variety we can expect from Deadmau5 in the future, and re-iterates his position at the forefront of electronic music.


Bonus:
Speaking of Epic, there isn't a group that does it better than the Swedish House Mafia. If you haven't already heard their 2010 anthem 'One' and the bass heavy Congorock remix..get onto it.
Their most recent release presents all that is epic about these house masters:

Volatile..


I've had these tracks for a while now, but decided to hold back on sharing them..have a listen and you will probably guess why. If you put Proxy, Sound of Stereo and some Rasta vocals into a blender..this would be the disgusting product:


These are two tracks that have a very epic sound/feel to them, a more stripped down approach from Boys Noize from the usual thrash electro blends melodic riffs making it easy on the ears and club friendly.


I don't have a download link for this next track but search hard enough and you will find it, I personally bought it off Beatport two weeks ago because I know its going to be huge! The Qemists do a really good job of making dubstep sounds more accessible with this track.

Just around the corner...



As the 4th of October draws closer and closer, my excitement for seeing these two artists live is reaching ridiculous levels..
People who caught AC Slater and Jack Beats when they rocked Adelaide a year ago will know what to expect, but not seeing these guys smash it live on the festival sound systems would be a crime! To get the blood flowing to your bass heavy, wobbly, filthy inner core's...I have an exclusive mix from Mr Slater himself as well as a Radio 1 Essential Mix from Jack Beats.

GET PUMPED! (Parklife 2010, 4th October, Botanic Park)

AC Slater Parklife 2010 Promo Mix (40 minutes of heavy bass, dutch, dubstep and AC's signature rave sound = MASSIVE)

Jack Beats Essential Mix (A 2 hour mix showcasing some of the very best from these guys as well as their delectable taste for filthy goodness)

Trouble & Bass



Okay, Squire of Gothos have been around for a while.. but it has been only recently that they have produced anything big enough for dubbleshift to post!
At a BPM of 137, both these tracks are a mixture of electro and dubstep.. perfect to mix between genres!!! I realise youth blood has been remixed many times, but I feel that this remix is bigger than both the Sharkslayer remix and the 12th Planet and Flinch remix.

It'll Be Alright (Squire of Gothos Remix) - B.Rich
Youth Blood (Squire of Gothos Remix) - Jinder

The next two tracks are ridiculously heavy dubstep.. so ridiculous that i doubt you could listen to the drop and recognise it as music. Anywho, i present some fucked up beats to you!

Fucked up - Diesel
Wobble Horror - Raffertie

Next is a big dubstep refix of the Jack Beats remix of AC Slater's "Jack Got Jacked". Easier to mix into a dubstep set, the Thrills Dubstep Refix switches things up just slightly.

Jack Got Jacked (Jack Beats Remix, Thrills Refix) - AC Slater

Reggae Dubstep


It's all in the title... I noticed recently that some well known artists were putting out some Reggae infused Dubstep tracks and was immediately addicted. I eventually found some artists that actually specialise in Reggae Dubs, and was blown away by the vibe these guys were creating. The combination of the two definitely creates something unique and fresh and as a result I had to put together a Quick mix of some tracks i'm feeling at the moment.
The mix starts slightly heavier but quickly moves into these signature chilled out reggae sounds. Whether you're about to light up a fat spliff or just want to kick back and relax, I present to you:


Tracklist:
Excuse Me - Flux Pavillion
Murderer - The Partysquad (Diplo & Jayou Remix)
Vampire Dubs - Doctor P
Rhythm - Jakes
Jah Prayer - DZ
Exodus - Bob Marley (Jamrock Bootleg)
Oh Contrarians - The Spit Brothers
Roll & Tumble - The Spit Brothers (VIP Remix)
Rollin' Riddim - Dubtrash

Alex Szahala



Freeform Hardcore
is a genre that I have only just heard. Immediately I realised that I'm going to be listening to this for a long time to come.. I just wish I heard it years ago.

I think a lot more people would listen to this if they knew where to find a good freeform mix. This problem has been solved for you.

This is a live mix from 2005 in Brisbane's mayhem festival by Alek Szahala..

This is hard! So fucking fast and heavy hitting, you will be wired and on the edge of your seat for the entire mix.

Listen to 3:30 and you won't be able to stop listening.. this mix is a crazy blend of 190 bpm tracks. Remember, this is a live recording.. yet it is flawless. Defqon 1 anyone?

Live at Mayhem 2005 (Brisbane) - Alek Szahala
(direct download)

Bonus: Defqon 1 CDs. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.

Wet, Wet, Wet!


I stumbled across a mix on FAT. It really blew my mind.

Firstly, it isn't really a mix of the likes which you are used to. Most of the songs are barely mixed together.. this is one artist's playlist for a great store in Melbourne.

This is a creative blend of music. I highly recommend listening to the entire thing at once to fully appreciate it.

The songs are perfect for a Sunday, and the fact that he hasn't attempted to poorly mix between genres makes it even easier to listen to.

I have no tracklisting and I have no genre to classify it under.. but it mixes between experimental, hip-hop and shoegazing rock.

Wet, Wet, Wet! - TRU$T FUN!

Bonus Track: Shelter (Tiga Remix) - The XX

Doctor P Australian Tour!

If you call yourself a dubstep fan and are unaware of who 'Doctor P' is, then you've been living under a rock for quite some time..if his signature track 'Sweet Shop' rings a bell, then you know exactly what to expect from this UK based DJ/Producer.
The great news? He's coming down to Australia in October and bringing some mad guests too, rumours are that previously featured 'Flux Pavillion' is one of them, making this tour a must see for anyone into mind melting, ear bleeding filth.
Adelaide fans..save this date: Saturday, 23rd October @ The Crown & Sceptre, as its guaranteed to be wild!




Caspa - Marmite (Doctor P Remix) (one of my favourites)

If you like the tracks please support the artists and buy from Beatport

QUICK MIX SERIES

So today we bring you the first of the 'Quick Mix' series. Our aim here is not to create the most technically astounding, smooth transitioning mixes, but to quickly mash together some tracks that were feeling at the moment.
The mixes will be around 15-30 minutes long and under 30mb in most cases, and we should be putting them out every 1-2 weeks.

For the first edition of this series I've decided to throw together some new tracks from genre's that got me into mixing in the first place...
You can expect some good old Electro followed by some filthy wobble, dutch house and a touch of Drum & Bass to finish. Next week we have a Dubstep Guest Mix from DJ Slime.

Feast


I have recently put together a mix with Dylan Taylor, AKA Mellowd..
A 20 minute dubstep mix by myself (J:Dub) begins the set, where Mellowd follows up with some tech.
I will post the entire tracklist when I can, but for now I only have the dubstep tracks..

Enjoy!

Bass Fo Yo Face!


I did a post a while back about Brooklyn Bass producer Figure and the collab with Tommie Sunshine. Whilst their 'EC$TACY' collab had a very funky/disco feel to it, Figure's usual tracks are known for their filthy, distorted, wobbly basslines...and he's been busy at work with some fresh material.

His soundcloud page below has all of his tracks old and new, and there are some available for free download


A pick of the bunch:


Figure - Dirty Damage (zippyshare download)

Tuesday Dub Fix

These aren't the newest tracks out there but they have nevertheless been on repeat on my Ipod lately..and are a must have for any Dubstep playlist. I'll save you the reading time so you can get right into them...

Edit: We've received numerous complaints from the DMCA about posting these tracks so all links have been removed, you can still google search and find them though ;)

The Boogaloo Crew - Days Go By (Chilled out with a driving bassline)

Massive Attack - Paradise Circus (Zed's Dead Remix) (Soothing vocals, until the drop hits!)

Blue Foundation - Eye on fire (Zed's Dead Remix) (One of my favourite tracks at the moment, gritty, dark and filthy coupled with strong vocals)

Tom Piper & Nick Corelli - Indisco (Bar 9 Remix) (Hot stuff from Bar 9)

Cyberoptix - Geisha (This track creates an image of traversing a calm oriental landscape, until the nail-biting crunch smacks you into the reality of the filth tearing away at your eardrums, Download now)

Rico Tubbs - Respect ( This track featured in many wobbly mixes in 2009, but only just got released, enjoy this 140 bpm wobble from Mr Tubbs)

Dillon Francis - Money Shot (This guy is one of my favourite producers atm, he nails it on all his original work and his remixes awesome too)

New Videos!

The Count and Sinden have recently collaborated with the Mystery Jets to release a new video for their funky track "After Dark".. very chilled! The count is Herve's other alias. This song shows his recent transition between genres.



The ambient electronic/dubstep group Mt Kimbie have released a video for their new track 'Would Know'. Very chilled out sounds and a creative video to match.. check it out

Okay this track is just ridiculous. It drops. You think to yourself 'yeah thats pretty filthy', then the drop builds and it drops further. 'Okay this is huge'.. and then it drops again.

EC$TACY IS GOOD FOR YOU!

There was a time a little while back where devouring one of these biscuits would lead to a euphoria filled, heart pounding, sweat covered night out....sadly this time has passed us...for now (we hope). In the mean time we can look towards the latest collab between two of the USA's finest producers to provide a sufficient alternative.
'EC$STACY' is made up of Tommie Sunshine and Figure. Whilst Tommie is known for his B-more style beats and Figure for 'Brooklyn's heaviest bass', this new side project see's the two delve into Disco-funk style edits with a big remix on the way. It works really well and although they are labelled as 'Edit's, they could almost pass as whole new tracks. Keep your eyes on these two!

Guess Who's Back?


It's been a while since I've heard anything from one of my favourite DJ/Producing duo's, Jack Beats....but what better time to release a new EP with upcoming Parklife shows in just a few months! I was curious to hear what sound they would be pushing now, since almost everyone seems to be dabbling in Dubstep and Wobble Bass these days.....of which Jack Beats were the unspoken masters.
This time round the duo have gone for a more stripped down approach to the Wobble, instead focusing more on the flow of the tracks, resulting in a more housey vibe. 'Out of Body' is very catchy whilst 'Revolution' uses tripped out bleeps to provide a different kind of mind destruction should you require it. Both tracks however still contain their trademark 'wobble' subtly blended into the background. I will definitely be playing these two for a while....Enjoy

Winter Chillout Session

I recently completed a quick half hour Dubstep mix, featuring the other side of the genre. 
These are some of my most listened to tracks, and some have been posted on this blog previously. 

Listen and download.. the tracklist is on the soundcloud page!

Savage


DJ Savage Henry has put together a truly atrocious mix. Included are some of the heaviest drops known to Dubstep, with each track melded together through creatively sound mixing.
Over an hour long, the mix explores the heavy side of the genre in its entirety.

Dubstep is like an addictive drug. Immediate pleasure is exchanged for the slow deterioration of the ears and mind. It leaves you fiending the overwhelming bassline.

Not restricted to Dubstep alone, Savage Henry is sharing huge beats with Adelaide.

SKRILLEX EP

I was a bit sceptical about downloading this EP after seeing a post about it on Deadmau5's
facebook page, but I can safely say this is something any electro, nu disco, dubstep, wobble fan should download. I can't even completely classify this EP into any particular subgenre as he blends the best elements into a melting pot of glorious, heavy, glitchy, breakbeat noise, which proves that there is still hope left for producers to redefine the typical approach to electronic music. The best part of this? The whole EP is 100% free!!

Preview the EP below:

Study Break

Guns and Horses... and Dubstep. DJ Wire has successfully combined Ellie Goulding's vocals alongside dubstep drops. This can often sound too busy, but Wire has executed it well! It is a delicious drop.
Ellie Goulding has received a lot of dubstep attention lately, so I have posted Jakwob's 'Starry Eyed' remix below. This has been a favourite of mine for a long time. Beware DJs, this song is at 150 BPM, not the typically renowned 140BPM Dubstep tempo. Both of these remixes are big.

Guns and Horses (DJ Wire Remix) - Ellie Goulding (Gethypedonthis direct link)
Starry Eyed (Jakwob Remix) - Ellie Goulding

Flux Pavillion is at it again, this time destroying the DJ Fresh track 'Gold Dust'. This song moves from fresh to filth. Flux Pavillion is on top of the Dubstep game at the moment, keep an eye out for any new releases.

Gold Dust (Flux Pavillion Remix) - DJ Fresh

Edit: I was going to do a whole post on up comer Flux Pavillion, but a Study Break is a more than adequate way to introduce the South London brewed dubsteppa who recently entered the game in 2008. For someone relatively new into the scene he has certainly made his mark, keep an eye out for Flux Pavillion, because he is definitely one to watch in 2010. It looks like you'll have to extend that 'Study Break' though because here are a few more tracks to butcher your brain. Pce, Shifty.

Flux Pavillion - Got 2 Know (Highly Recommended) Link only 192 kbps





Let these beats distract your study for a few minutes.. I know you're looking for any excuse.

The Drop


Big remix from Dem Slackers has put them back in the game! This has a very middle-eastern cobra flute feel.. it is mesmerizing. Then the drop hits, waking you into a trembling body spasm. Play this loud to let the distorted bass vibrate your entire skeletal structure.

Fifty What (Dem Slackers Remix) - Sandro Silva and Andjiro Rijo



Playing dutch house around society will only bring concerns of ecstacy addiction. Do not play the next track around parents or guardians. Beataucue is a disgrace to mankind.. Some kind of animal (most likely a wolf with downsyndrome) is creating fucked up background yelps behind the drop, and the beeping buildups are out of this world. I would end up on the ground if I heard this on a dancefloor.

Wolves - Beataucue


Fukkk Offf's 'Rave is King' has been around for ages, but this new remix is extremely different. Chilled out, yet mind destroying if required. The videogame-ish drop at 130 is extemely catchy, and the second drop adds warm synth sounds to create a party banger. Alcohol, Drugs, Overdrive, Noise, Neon Lights, Party People. Can you feel it?

Rave is King (Nujax Remix) - Fukkk Offf


I thought some lyrics were needed...
Wob (x16), wob (x8), WOB (x4), wob, wob, whmmm.
Wob (x16), wob (x8), WoB (x4), woB (x4).
Wob (x16), wob (x8), WOB (x4), wob, wob, whmmm.
You gon get stolen on if you don’t get with the program.

Wob (x16), wob (x8), WOB (x4), wob, wob, whmmm.
Wob (x16), wob (x8), snare, click, boom.
Wob (x16), wob (x8), WOB (x4), wob, wob, whmmm.

Progressive Sunday Sessions..


Everyone know's just how the next day after a big night out feels, and loud, jarring music does not help in any way. Luckily there are many genre's which suit these very situations, one of my favourite being Progressive House. These types of tracks are not only great to listen to when you're in the mood to relax, but they also double as extremely uplifting, euphoria inducing melodies.

One of my favourite Artists in the game is EDX, who has numerous progressive remixes to his name as well as many original tracks. Below is his newest remix of Benny Benassi's 'Spaceship', as well as some of my old favourite's :

EDIT: All Links removed by Request!

Benny Benassi ft Kelis - Spaceship (EDX's Dubai Skyline Remix)

EDX - Party of Politics

Passenger 10 - Mirage (EDX's Sunshine Remix)

and my personal old time favourite, get it now if you haven't ever heard it!!

Dubfire - Roadkill (EDX's Acapulco at Night Remix) (Highly Recommended)


Axwell is a well known name in the house music scene, being one of the members of the infamous Swedish House Mafia. Aside from his collaborations with the House Mafia, he is busy with his own stellar productions and massive record label, Axtone Records.
I stumbled across a song on his record label a while back that I was immediately obsessed with and have been counting down the days until it was released! It's finally arrived and I'm happy to post it here.

Adrian Lux - Teenage Crime (Highly Recommended)
Adrian Lux - Teenage Crime (Axwell Remix)

Speaking of the Swedish House Mafia, one of their most recent releases has been dominating the Beatport Progressive House Charts...and for a very good reason...check it out for yourself:

Swedish House Mafia - One (Epic)

I now leave you with a Progressive House Mix, by Adelaide DJ, 'Mellow D'. If you're looking for a well crafted blend of Progressive melodies, look no further as this mix will take you on a journey through a variety of sounds and artists, and definitely deserves a spot on your Ipod.


Enjoy.

Collaborations...

It's always interesting when two musical artists come together to blend their individual talents...it's even more interesting when the two artists sounds are so different from each other.
It's often hit or miss, but i can safely say that these collaborations between artists in the electronic music scene definitely work, and provide something to suit everyone's musical tastes.

If one collaboration wasn't enough, the masters behind the reggae/dancehall collaboration Major Lazer, (Diplo & Switch) have teamed up with well known electro pop act, La Roux. This mixtape combines tracks from La Roux's self titled album, as well as Major Lazers: 'Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do'. The result is a blend of the best of La Roux with a chilled out dancehall vibe and even some dub sounds.

Follow the link to the Mad Decent Records website to grab it now for free.


Diplo has definitely been a busy man. Along with this La Roux collab, an even more interesting pairing has brought about the electro stomper "C'mon". Pairing up with none other than Tiesto, this track combines euphoric trance buildups and riffs and drops into a solid electro sound at a dance-able 130 bpm.


I can't stop posting tracks from Afrojack, but for a good reason. This guy keeps releasing tracks that will ultimately find their way into any Dj's set. His tracks are very dance-able thanks to his solid hard hitting drum beats that drive most of his tracks. If its those tripped out high pitch sounds you desire after you've knocked back a few drinks or something else.... then his collaboration with The PartySquad will suit your ears perfectly. If your after a slower but still solid track with a tech-house feel, then his collabs with Bobby Burns will give you just that. If you're after a strange/slightly off drop then check out his collab with Sidney Samson.


This track below is an older 2009 track from Afrojack and Bobby Burns, but if you haven't already heard it, get it now..its a banger!


A well known collaboration in the Dubstep game is that of Excision and Datsik, both dubbers have established themselves as heavy hitters in their own right as well as giving birth to a new breed of Dubstep in the form of their number 1 track 'Swagga'. The result of this successful pairing is pure and utter filth that will please any dub head looking for their latest fix of mind melting, ear bleeding noise.



Enjoy.

Horror


This post is dedicated to a few ghastly tracks, gathered from a variety of producers who are just plain wrong. Each sound casts a vile and disgraceful act against the listener, but luckily since Dubstep has become more popular your ears have grown used to the filth..

Dubstep producer Dayn has attached his appalling signature to each and every one of his drops lately. You may have heard his track 'Out There' which features a massacre with a chainsaw playing the lead role. I have posted one of my favourite songs below: his track titled 'Milfy Fustashe'.

Sine Here, an up and coming Dubstep producer, has remixed his own track 'Thanks for the Add'. This is a peaceful track until about 1 minute in, where you will experience wound-up snare hits that lead into a drop reminiscent of a roaring transformer.

Nothing needs to be said about both the artist and remixer for the following song. I present to you Bassnectar's remix of Metallica's 'Seek and Destroy'.. Delish.

Now to the vocal Dubstep. By 'vocal' I don't refer to some douchebag trying to sing over the top of some heavy ass dubs. I am instead referring to the sounds produced at the drop.. check out the hollow wobbles of 'Doomsday 2029' by Twitchdubz. 'Budgies Attack' by Lebelgeelectrod has also been kept as my secret mind-melting specialty, but now I am feeling generous. Please indulge.

Milfy Fustashe - Dayn
Thanks for the Add (Sine Here Remix) - Brad Sucks, Sine Here
Seek and Destroy (Bassnectar Remix) - Metallica

Winter Madness


It annoys me that so many artists come to Australia, only to skip Adelaide on their 'National' tour. However, there are a few upcoming events that are light on the wallet, but heavy on the ears! No more excuses for Winter boredom in Adelaide! Make the effort and support these events now, and show these artists that Adelaide's music scene well and truly exists.


Firstly, I present We Love Sounds on the 14th of June. This is a rare daytime Winter Festival, and if electro beats have been repetitively played through your headphones lately, this festival cannot be missed. Feel free to wait months for the next big festival, but I am more than happy to spend $100 on a guaranteed day of all-round ridiculousness. Artists include: Laidback Luke, Crookers, Underworld, Steve Aoki, The Proxy, Tiga and Zombie Nation! Last year We Love Sounds was a crazy day, and whilst it was raining, partiers took no notice and danced the day dark. I can't wait to feel the anxious excitement at pre-drinks, and then go on to experience some of my favourite artists with a crowd of thousands.
Fellow blogger SHiFTY (Rashaad) is now selling tickets at $105, contact him through comments or facebook for a loud and messy day.


Next up, DJ Premier is performing in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney alongside the Beatnuts, Nick Javas, Masta Ace & Edo G. This is RAP CITY 2010 , and has huge potential! DJ Premier will be spinning his signature sound, with live mc's spittin' in accompaniment to Premo's bassline heavy rythm and perfectly produced instrumentals.
Hosted at HQ, there is a huge capacity for Adelaide's Hip Hop scene to attend, and these acts will be dope! Check out the facebook group and click attending if you are prepared to witness 5 hours of original rhyme on Friday June 11th.


Two underground HQ events are also hitting the South this Winter..

Hostile Takeover. A ravewear friendly hardstyle, hardhouse, hardcore and Drum n Bass event will hit HQ Adelaide on Friday June 11. Full of glowstringers and huge lasers, this $15 dollar event will be quite an auditory and visual experience! Check out the facebook page, and if you haven't seen glowstringing before check it out on youtube.. quite a trippy art!

A Trance/Tech/Progressive event called Airport will be sure to satisfy anyone into quality mixing and euphoric sounds. Airport will be home to Simon Patterson (World's #42 DJ), Sied Van Riel (World's #85 DJ), Trent Mcdermott (Aus #13), Aaron Camz, and a huge range of local talent (including Andrew Howlett and DJ Frost). These DJ's are mood-controllers; artists who slowly alter the crowd's atmosphere through song choice. Hosted at HQ during the day, this is a great way to listen to chilled music on Sunday the 11th of July for only $35.

I hope to see you all there!

Not Dubstep Again!!!



Oh fuck. Oh shit son. Oh fuck. Excuse my French, but this is the only response I have to Nostalgia's Dubstep remix of Knights of Cydonia. It has Bellamy's epic original vocals, but the buildup leads into something a little.. ridiculous. Hold onto your pants, the drop will fuck your shit up.

A band I think everybody should have been into a while back are 'the XX'. I know it takes Adelaide ages to catch up to the UK scene, but for fucks sake don't start posting your year old tracks over facebook for everyone to frown upon. I would prefer to see you post Lady Gaga than be witness to your unknown public ridicule. So in conclusion, please take the effort and look into blogs like ours, as people post these tracks to save you time and effort. I do however apologise and give my respect to those who love the music enough to search for new songs themselves.
Enough of my ranting. Here are two remixes of the XX track 'Crystalised'. Firstly, a chilled out Dark Sky dubstep remix which features in the latest Jamie XX mix for Colette. As a bonus I have also posted a tripped out vocal house remix by Lorcan Mak. Get onboard!

Mixing It Up

Instead of posting a few new tracks...today i'll be leaving you with some great new mixes filled with many new/awesome and even unreleased tracks to keep you busy.

First up is a mix from electro and dubstep producer Udachi, let me warn you now, this mix has some absolutely filthy tunes in it, and I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Wobbly Bass, electro and Dubstep.


Next up is a slower/softer mix from Cassian, the newcomer to the scene who is causing a storm with his extremely popular party making tunes. If you haven't already heard his Beatport number 1, 'Friday Night', get onto it soon. This is a great mix to chill to but it also doubles as a very dance-able blend of disco/funk and indie electro.

Cassian - Mr Friday Night Mix (direct download, right click save as)


Punk Rolla, is the new alias of one of the DJ's/producers previously known as Bass Weazal, the new sound combines those familiar heavy basslines with some dutch sounds, creating absolute monster tracks and bootlegs. This mixtape is full of his own tracks as well as new/unreleased bangers from the likes of Calvertron, The Mightyfools, Mustard Pimp and even Deadmau5.

To end things off, i'll leave you with a Live Afrojack Set at INOX Music Festival in France.
If you haven't heard a live Afrojack Set, grab this one immediately. We had the privilege of seeing him at HQ a while back, and his set was by far the best of the night!
Expect an onslaught of his own dutch sounds as well as other top producers in the game.

Enjoy!

One Post, One Track!



A whole post has just been dedicated to my new favourite track. Armand Van Helden has recently remixed the track "Add Suv" by Pharrell Williams & Uffie. This is a Banger, there is no doubt about it. Pharrell even states it himself many times throughout the track ... and then it drops. It doesn't drop heavy, but shit this is nice. Let the music move your shoulders back and forth, and allow the funky sounds to nod your head. Van Helden has been one of my top rated producers lately, you would be an idiot not to check this out.
