It's always interesting when two musical artists come together to blend their individual'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.

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.

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.

Knights of Cydonia (Nostalgia Remix) - Muse
(Direct Download, Right click-> Save Target As)

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 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.

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.

Genre Fusion

Moving away from the heavy basslines and mind melting sounds, George Lenton has recently become a respected producer throughout the Dubstep game. Firstly, his unique remix of
Al Green's 'Simply Beautiful' has been my most played track this month. Lenton creates a patient background beat through the blend of a deep bassline with light drum hits. Soft synthesizers and light guitar plucks create a relaxed mood to compliment Al Green's filtered vocals. The result? Well, you can listen to the masterpiece yourself!

Lenton has released a more upbeat remix also. This time he has recreated the
Swizz Beatz' track 'Money in the Bank', turning it into something greater than the original. Beeps, buildups and offbeat basslines are used in conjunction with repetitive vocals and a steady drum beat (and cowbells!!) to create a strange mix of Electro and Glitch Hop.
Get both tracks here:
Simply Beautiful (George Lenton Remix) - Al Green
Money in the Bank (George Lenton Remix) - Swizz Beatz

James Blake
has recently killed it with Dubstep tracks that are unlike anything that I have heard lately. The following remix of 'Stop What You're Doing' has received vigorous listening through my headphones. The sounds that James Blake creates are used so perfectly together, creating a unique genre splitting remix.

Stop What You're Doing (James Blake Remix) - Untold

PANTyRAiD provides something new altogether in a remix of the Freeland track called 'Do You'. Tripped out vocal cuts accompany phased synths, attack driven kicks and wobbled drops. The finished product shows ambience alongside a heavy bassline. Give this a listen!
Do You (PANTyRAiD Remix) - Freeland

has reworked
Sia's track 'Clap Your Hands' into a Dubstep chillout. High pitched beeps are used to buildup the track into a light and simple drop, which has a sound reminiscent of the bassline in the Afrojack remix of 'Cool'.
Clap Your Hands (Diplo Remix) - Sia

Last, but certainly not least, is a Mount Kimbie Dubstep remix of the
Foals' latest hit 'Spanish Sahara'. Words cannot give an appropriate description of how pure this soft Dubstep remix is. Poetic verses create depressingly raw emotion, to control the listener's mood. The powerful vocals fill out the track in its entirety, covered by simple background clicks, beeps and atmospheric wind.
Spanish Sahara (Mount Kimbie Remix) - Foals (Recommended Download)

Enjoy. Pce!

It's FRIDDAY!! and there's no better way to kick off the weekend of then with some Funky As Fuck tunes.

First Up is a new release from Denzal Park. These cats are responsible for many mashups, notably the Mars-Flashback mashup which dominated club playlists for 2008-09.
Recently however they've crossed into their own productions and if you haven't already heard the disco banger 'Filter Freak' then you've been on another planet. Aside from that club pleaser, a newer release of theirs has got my attention, a more melodic house track with a funky breakdown. Check them both out here :

Next up is an old B side track from Gramophonedzie, whilst the main track 'Why Don't You' is a very well known club pleaser...I found that the B-side was a bit under rated for what it was...!
anyway check it out here:

the next track dominated the Beatport house charts for a while. It has a nice build up into a simple but definitely funky the title indicates...

the next track is a a blend of disco and funk, and is guranteed to get things kicking off,

the next artist is definately someone to look out for! British producer and DJ, Louis La Roche is creating a storm in the french disco scene, and his releases have been making the Beatport top 10's frequently. These are some stand out tracks and some of his older releases:

Louis La Roche - Missing You (new unreleased track)

Louis La Roche - Prick Stick (funky late night track)

Louis La Roche - Malfunction (french electro/disco)

thats it for now....however if your in the mood for some funky beats...producers behind the massively hyped Funky house track 'We No Speak Americano', Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP will be playing at Electric Circus tomorrow night. Click HERE for the Facebook Event Page.

Diiirrtty Dutch Time!

So everyone knows that the Dutch House sound has become increasingly popular now with lots of artists crossing over to combine elements of it in their without hesitation we bring you some current Dutch house tracks that are causing a storm...

First up is none other than Afrojack, who can be held responsible for the rise in dutch house popularity...This track blew crowds away at the Miami Winter Music Conference 2010 (WMC), and whilst it sounds a lot like his other tracks...its sure to get people rowdy!

Next up is a track from none other than Sidney Samson, who was also one of the first to pioneer the dutch sound. Samson makes use of a sample from a NAS track which lends it's title.

Even wobbly bass head and heavy electro producer Calvertron has embraced the dutch sound..the drum beats and sounds are very similar to Afrojack and its bound to get things going!

Fellow bassheads and fidget monsters, 'The Squatters' have also followed suit with their new release 'On Fire'! The track lives up to its title!

and last...for a ridiculous taste of dutch house...check out newcomer 'Wes De Graaf'
his track Pon Di River has been featured in many dj sets dropping the dutch sound.

and for something a little different.... a quick Hip Hop Mix by JDUB aka DubbleDrop
get it HERE

1ST OFFICIAL POST! and nothing else but some DUB!

So this is the first official post of this music blog for DubbleSHiFt Dj's and there is no better way to kick things off then 2 dubstep mixes and some new tracks!

First up a MASSIVE remix by Subfocus, the guys responsible for 'Could This Be Real'.
The original tune is the Dubstep track by Rusko but Subfocus have reworked this into an awesome blend of Dubstep and Drum & Bass...check it out:

Next up is a slower, more chilled out dubstep tune that i just can't stop listening to:

Don't be put of by the artist of this song, Yeh i know the thought of listening to that Ke$ha bitch is painfully mind melting in itself...but wait till you hear what Cookie Monsta has done to this track!

for something different check out the Latest RADIO 1 ESSENTIAL MIX from Portuguese group Buraka Som Sistema

The mix blends the best of hip hop/latin groove with some heavy electro, wobbly basslines and some filthy dub...all with a touch of Portuguese flavour...

get the mix HERE

Thats it for now...check out the SoundCloud player on this page for the 2 dubstep mixes that will be uploaded shortly!
