Have a good break? Hope so. Time to get back into the swing of things. And how better to get back up to the frantic pace than with some electro DnB from Krewella? That’s right. There is no better way. As usual, Krewella showcases beautiful female vocals and tight, catchy production. I don’t have much else to say except, enjoy this to its fullest and blast it!

Well, it’s been too long. I’ve been busy lately, but I’ve built up quite a collection of fun wobbley tracks to share with you guys in my absence! I know it’s not Thursday, but I think we can always enjoy some hard bass. So here goes dubstep mania!
First track up is not particularly new, but it has not been posted on here yet and I think that’s a damn shame. It’s a very enjoyable remix from our friend Zomboy. Well I’ll have you know, <hipster> I was into it before it got hot! </hipster>
Next we’ve got a remix of SKisM‘s Rave Review, which I find absolutely hilarious. The sound clips were used pretty well in the original. While this version doesn’t focus as much on the satire of making the song out of the scathing comments, it hits much harder than the original, leading to a killer drop. Also, for some reason I’m sucker for needlessly explicit drops. “God this sucks!” “Here, take these drugs.”
This is just a fun song with some really freakin’ heavy bass, a catchy synth line and some cool rhymes on top. Check it out.
I’ve been a big fan of Kill The Noise ever since I saw him open for Feed Me, and this is a pretty awesome remix of Must Be The Feeling that slows it down, chills it out, and still manages to be absolutely awesome. Make sure you turn up your subwoofer or you’re gonna miss some awesome low sounds, especially right before the drop!
One more track from Kill The Noise before we move on. This one is a bit faster, and absolutely awesome. It’s a remix of Porter Robinson’s Spitfire. Someone once said “dubstep is like an autotuned drum solo,” and I think this applies well to this song. It’s very rhythmic; it just makes you want to move. Enjoy it!
This song isn’t particularly new either, but it’s an absolute blast to listen to and it’d be a shame if anyone missed out. Caspa is not new to the dubstep scene by a long shot, but he teams up with Subscape on this tune to deliver something absolutely awesome. Don’t listen to this on some crappy Apple earbuds, you need a good subwoofer to really appreciate this one! Especially when it cuts out and the bass just… flies.
Out the Blue by Sub Focus is a really good song, and there have been many good remixes as well. Here is my favorite dubsteppy one.
This one isn’t really dubstep, but who said I can’t put some other stuff into this post too? This is probably my favorite Out the Blue remix. If you love House music, I think you’re gonna dig this.
The last few tracks on here come from a personal favorite artist of mine, Delta Heavy. DH should have been on here ages ago; they’re making some of the best DnB and Dubstep songs right now. They just came out with an EP, Down the Rabbit Hole, and I heartily recommend you check it out. I won’t be posting any of the stuff on that EP on here because it’s not up for free, but here’s some remixes they’ve done in the past.
This one’s pretty old, but it remains one of my favorites. I got really sick of Nero remixes after that Kill The Noise one burned me out, but this takes the song to a new level. I love it.
This one is more recent. Cool little remix of Rita Ora and Tinie Tempah’s R.I.P. I noticed that it uses one specific sound that’s pretty similar to the one in the Must Be The Feeling Remix, but I am pleased to report that they did not rely on that one cool sound in their EP. Check it out!
BONUS: As if this post wasn’t long enough. Since I just love pimping my favorite groups, check out this sweet music video of Get By from Delta Heavy’s new EP!
It’s Thursday! Three exams down, one paper to go, then it’s party time. But I thought I’d help out anyone looking for some bass in the meantime. So here we go.
Let’s start off with something fun, I could certainly use that. High Rankin made this song in order to vent some feelings he has. But he’s not bitter, really. The bit comparing YouTube and SoundCloud really hit home for me. I hate it when people do that. Enjoy the fun poked at annoying people and the wobs all over the place.
Next up, Stephen Walking delivers some intense wobbage and filth. This track is off of the latest Monstercat compilation. I enjoy how the tune moves in and out of tropical instruments and electronic synths. Check it out.
And now for some nostalgia. Hugs&Drugs turn the Killers’ classic into an excellent drumstep track. The beat breaks down into bass for the chorus. It’s great. Give it a listen for yourself.
We’re going to take a step back with this track and relax the mood a bit. Dylan Sanders & Brad Lee have a very chilled out track to share. The flute and breakbeat just makes you want to dance and the vocals are just as catchy. The dubstep interludes just seem to make sense. Check it out!
I posted Logic the other day so when I saw this remix I was in a very receptive mood. Turns out that really wouldn’t have mattered. The Feature Cuts remix is so good that I would have blogged it no matter what mood I was in. The beat is driving and bass filled which lends urgency to Logic’s already intense verses. Enjoy it!
Friday means mashups (ok well now it’s Saturday, but that happens). So I thought I’d do a mashup post consisting entirely of “Call Me Maybe” mashups. Then I thought what if people don’t like it enough for that. Then I thought too bad. Then I thought I’d throw you a bone. First half of this post won’t contain Carly Rae and the second half will. Have fun!
Let’s start with a sample from Inception. That’s always fun. Add some pop house and we have a sweet mashup. Manila Killa delivers something quite fun. Give it a listen.
Binary put together this lovely trance-y track a month ago. But I haven’t stopped loving it yet. Very chilled out. Enjoy!
With the help of the Catalina Rhyme Mixers we’re going to step up the pace a bit. I like the way this turned out. Now I want Skrillex to produce a rage beat for Rihanna. Give it a listen to see if you agree.
Koyote lays down an addictive club beat on this one. Dutch house often just annoys me, but I really get into this one. How about you? Check it out and tell me what you think.
The White Panda has quietly been dropping full length songs from their latest album. This track was one of my favorites from the album so I thought I’d share the full length. Have fun with it.
I need more DnB in my life. Graycat delivers with a sleepy start that moves into beautiful vocal build until the drums come in and the song really gets going. Soulja Boy was a particularly inspired choice to add to the beat. I absolutely love this song. Just wait for the Imogen Heap! Enjoy it!
And now, it’s time to call me maybe (which isn’t my name, but I’ll let you call me it for a little bit).
It’s a Thursday folks. And I have some dubstep! I thought you would appreciate if I shared.
Cris Cab is getting big! He teamed up with Mavado and Wyclef on this one. When I heard I first heard this I was shocked by the sheer heaviness of the bass. The instrumental is almost purely wobbage. But that makes sense when you think about the origins of dubstep. Give it a listen.
So I already love this track. Adding extreme bass just makes me love it more. Patrick Reza didn’t do a lot with Sia’s amazing vocals, though what he kept was brilliant. The instrumental is really what shines here. Enjoy!
This January I was working with some friends finding appropriate music for a computer game they put together using RPG Maker. I spent a lot of time poring over some chiptune sites, which is where I discovered PamTech. This song wouldn’t have really worked for the game but I fell in love with it. The distant vocals and the heavily filtered bass just sound good together. Chipstep? Check it out.
I know it’s no longer quite Thursday but let’s start Friday on an epic note. This is hands down one of the most epic dubstep tracks I’ve heard. DanielofSparta works with some DnB mentality and triumphant synths. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!
