SPECIAL GUEST DROP IN – BASSNECTAR!
One of the GODFATHERS OF DUBSTEP – BASSNECTAR.
This just dropped in and so I had to include it!!!
Here’s what out matey says about the Nelly Furtado mash up:
It is a musical mutatant marriage between elements of my song ‘Timestretch’ and Nelly Furtado’s classic “Turn Out The Lights”. A few weeks ago I heard a bootleg by SLOF MAN; a dope remix of Nelly Furtado’s song, but his bassline was NOTE FOR NOTE identical to Timestretch. My first thought was “oh daym this is going to mix perfectly with timestretch” and as i listened more i decided to take the mix further. So i re-tuned elements of my track, and re-mixed it into a more straightforward arrangement, laid bits of the acapella over the beats, and went to work. My buddy Sayr even suggested a different melodic idea for the bassline, and my homies at Arlyn Studios in Austin stretched and edited her vocals, doing micro-tuning and loving it up. It was a group effort, and of course it is an unofficial bootleg, i decided to call it “Magical World”. I played it on repeat all weekend and on multiple occasions my body was helplessly covered in waves of goosebumps. I was overcome by thoughts of how special it is to be alive, and how magical it truly is!!!
Nelly, if you are out there, WE LOVE YOUR VOICE!!!!!
I’ve had the new “TIMESTRETCH” EP for a few weeks now and it’s a durrrrrty, filthy mega-monster of apocalyptic proportions!
GRAB IT HERE!
What better way to go on after covering one of the Godfather’s of Dubstep, we go on to the current DADDY of DUBSTEP, Rusko!
In the meantime, grab a free track and also a mash up of Woo Boost by the Dirty Disco kidz!
Rusko (Woo Boost) vs Three Six Mafia (Keep it Hood)
Whilst Rusko might be the Daddy of Dubstep, Joker is the GENIUS!
All eyes are on Joker for his next move, having created havoc on dancefloors all over the world last year with huge remixes for numerous major labels/acts and anthems such as ‘Digidesign’, ‘Do It’ and ‘Purple City”. He has defined the colourful synth-led melodic style within dubstep that’s become known as ‘Purple w0w’. ‘Tron’ is his biggest tune yet and is available here with an exclusive VIP version just for the digital package. It’s a rare piece of music that can unite a diverse range of DJs such as Diplo, Kode 9, Shy FX, Flying Lotus, TC, Caspa, Pinch…

SON OF KICK
SON OF KICK from London, TOP TOP quality written all over his productions and def a name to watch out for!
Been trying to get him to give me some free stuff to post of his on the blog for a little while and so I was pleasantly surprised when he contacted me recently to let me know these 2 tracks were now available for free download.
We will be doing something else soon on this kid and his upcoming releases but in the meantime, name-check him and download these 2 beauties!
Another Dubstepper from Wellington, New Zealand and I’m telling you man the quality of Dubstep coming from that place is ridiculously GREAT, would loved to know what’s in their water.
Love these 2 tracks which are available free and here’s what he says about himself:
Aotearoa New Zealand is my home. From Ahipara to Mahia to Newtown and beyond, these are the lands in which I have DJ’ed for over 11 years. I have featured alongside some of our best musicians, from jazz to jump-up. From house-parties to house sell-outs, locals to legends…
Musical influences along the same vein;
Gaslamp Killer, Mr. Scruff, Skream, Burial, Reprazent, J-Dilla, Lee Perry, Massive Attack, Kanka, Flying Lotus.
FLIP N DILEMMA
A few tracks here from 2 of my homies’ in Brum. I love to support local talent and so happy to do so here too.
They are Flip N Dilemma and here’s what Flip says about the duo, now trio:
My DJ name is Flip and i’ve been crafting on decks for about five years now, purely vinyl atm it just feels more natural to me. Both myself and fellow DJs, Dilemma and Dropzone have been running many a successful nights in our hometown of Halesowen. I started djing drum and bass and this is where my main passion lies however recently i’ve drifted into dubstep and have found a new love for this infectious style of music!
Love this first one, Popstep remix of the Virgin Media Advert and the other 2 tracks are good too!
