Italian Dubstep scene is getting a serious push with the new label Voodoo Rebel and its first release by ARGE of the Numa Crew. I’ve tested the track ‘awake’ from the EP in my last mix (march madness) and it delivers!
As an offering from Voodoo Rebel, we got the track BRING YO ASS off the EP as an exlusive free gift to our readers. The track is a good 2-step dubstep featuring invading melodies and dark basslines. –Download 320kbps MP3 Here–

From the PR:
VoOdOo ReBeL is a new label focused on global electronic music, kuduro, moombahton, dubstep and every new sound and beat that could come from the ghetto.
The first release it will be an EP produced by ARGE (NUMA CREW) containing 4 tracks:
-Bring yo ass
Boricua is a banger hit with a kuduro shuffled rythm, wobbling aggressive basslines and a catchy synth-line that blows away the dancefloor everytime you drop it.
Demons is a massive dubstep tune with a dub flavoured intro and a heavy acid bass flowing in a classic DMZ style.
Bring yo ass it’s another dancefloor banger, the drums have a strong kick and a fat kuduro snare, the bassline is pulsy,rytmic and gives to the track a tropical flavour.
Awake is a mental dubstep tune: indian hypnotic sounds, the sub-bass helps meditate on the irie atmosphere that this massive track creates.
Arge is a versatile producer, member of NUMA CREW, the first dubstep crew in italy. His productions are various and have many influences like dubstep, kuduro, fidget, moombahton and UKfunky. He released for Elastica and ERBA records, collaborating with international artists like Zion Train, Asian dub foundation, Arpxp and performing all over Europe also in big festivals like OUTLOOK FESTIVAL 2010. He organizes parties in florence italy with the BASS SQUAD CREW
