GENERATION BASS CLASSIC POST : DUBSTEP MONDAY : HEAVVVY METAL!

phpSwyOHp

So we’re gonna be trawling through our archives to find what we consider to be some of our classic posts, which should highlight just how influential we might have been in the past 4 years without actually gaining critical recognition for it.  Critical recognition doesn’t really bother us because some of the best things in the world go largely unnoticed.

The first of such posts is this one that we did back in March 2010.  The classic aspect of this post is not the music but what we had the foresight/observation to predict that would happen to Dubstep/Brostep in the future!  No mean feat but nobody else was saying this at around that time!

Dubstep/Brostep in America has kinda become what we were observing back then and so it’s pretty pertinent and important.

Dubstep has become a ROCK CONCERT, it’s far removed from the traditional image of a sweaty dancefloor in a club where people go for a great workout, dancing till they drop.

Instead, you have a sea of people throwing their fists in the air, swaying back & forth and headbanging as if they were at a Rock gig.

We predicted these similarities and that Dubstep would go on to echo many features of a traditional Rock or Metal gig.

This was also latterly picked up 1 and half years later by esteemed music journalist Simon Reynolds who is mentioned in the following as quoted in Wiki:

Brostep and American developments

In 2011, dubstep gained significant traction in the US market by way of a post-dubstep style known as brostep with the American producer Skrillex becoming something of a figurehead for the scene. In September 2011 a Spin Magazine EDM special referred to brostep as a “lurching and aggressive” variant of dubstep that has proven commercially successful in the United States.[97] Unlike traditional dubstep production styles, that emphasize sub-bass content, brostep accentuates the middle register and features “robotic fluctuations and metal-esque aggression”. According to Simon Reynolds, as dubstep gained larger audiences and moved from smaller club-based venues to larger outdoor events, sub-sonic content was gradually replaced by distorted bass riffs that function roughly in the same register as the electric guitar in heavy metal.[98]

  1. ^ Beats & Bass: The Producer’s Guide Simon Reynolds, The Art of the Groove, in Computer Music, Computer Music Specials (p. 9), Wed 26 Oct 2011, Future Publishing Limited

You even have rock musicians from bands like Pendulum forming Dubstep acts like Knife Party and leaving their established bands and legends like Ray Manzarek from the Doors working with dudes like Skrillex.  Even we’re working with some rock legends that we have to keep under wraps for now.  Dudes like Bassnectar are selling out 10,000 capacity arena’s in a matter of hours, just like the Metal  bands!

So there you have it, Dubstep is the New Heavy Metal!

And here below is what we said back in March 2010 and if you want to go to the original post too, CLICK HERE:

CLASSIC POST – 15th MARCH 2010

DUBSTEP MONDAY @ GENERATION BASS

Don’t know about you lot but for me, Dubstep takes me back to my teens.  There is a correlation between it and Heavy Metal music in more ways than one such as these:

It has a mainly hardcore male following.

Gurrls are also involved, an analogy could be drawn between Dubstep gurrls and Rock chicks.

The Bass Wobble is like the new Guitar Solo, some if it is really self-indulgent too.  It has inspired a whole swathe of youngsters to get in on it.

There’s lots of headbanging at Dubstep gigs!

The xcitement of seeing one of your Dubstep heroes and looking forward to a show is for me very reminscent of some of the early rock gigs I use to go to..Sabbath, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Dio etc etc etc.

It’s BASSSS HEAVVVY and LOUUUUD!

Many of you will not view the same similarities but that’s what it is to me.

Anyway, today we have:

From Grawlix:

Born and raised in the east corner of North America, in the state of Vermont.  Found a love for Dubstep, and working hard to lay down my own style of the genre and to be known as a Dubstep producer and not just a kid with a computer and lots of free time. I would love to hear my current and future tracks in anyones mixes, or hear any feedback on the tunes. Comments, compliments and the will to never give up are my only fuel for making myself known in this genre, so please big me ups whenever you can. -Peace

An entirety made of transversal emotions, different from one other but with a common thread joining them in a unique and well defined artistic path. Syncopated rythms, nocturnal suggestions, asymmetrical voices from the fast city. A project melting soul inner selves, dubstep influences and garage ambience.

THE CATARACS

phpcLkUWA

Bass Down Low (feat. Dev) (Proper Villains Remix)

Download this song

The Cataracs and Dev probably had a vice grip on your brain in 2010 with their Far East Movement collab, “Like A G6”. To add to their catalogue of hooky booty bangers is “Bass Down Low”, another anthemic get down. But for a song that demands quick sonic stylings with deep bass, it’s better suited for a night sippin’ syrup. If the beat needs to be fast and the bass needs to be low, then Proper Villains‘ grime wave wash over the track is the perfect recipe for a refit. Crack a Red Bull, let dubstep do what it does and prepare for another tight squeeze on your music memory sensors.

FJH

phpo4JHLq

You know we’ve been covering FJH on this blog for a while now and he’s one of those really hard-working guys on Soundcloud who goes around messaging everybody asking them to check out his tracks.

Most often than not, I tend to ignore such messages, as most often than not, such messages usually lead to not terribly good music but there are some major exceptions and FJH is one of them.

His stuff is always quality and always well worth checking out, like this brilliant new track he did recently!

DUBSTEP MONDAY

U back again for another Monsta’ Mammoth Seshhhhh.

It’s almost the end of the year and next year Dubstep Monday is going to start to become even more wider and varied as I bring on more and more guest contributors.

The thing I love about Dubstep is that it has an ability to effortlessly mutate and thus it is only right that we ought to try to cover this wide and varied mutation, hence the guest contributors.

Anyway, back to today:

2. GERRUZZ

3. HOT MESS

4. PSYCHOBITCHES

5. REUBEN SEETAL

Really interesting, atmospheric vybz.  Lots of different and very musical things happening all over this album and not  a conventional one-track pony dubstep album, not by a long shot.

I like it a lot!

DIGITAL FARM ANIMALZ

Really delicious track is this, a post-dubstep classic I’d say!

This is a remix collaboration with ChaseMonkey of Redlight’s ‘What You Talking About’ feat. Ms Dynamite. I know it’s a huge contrast from my usual stuff but the response i’ve received from this track has been good so far, so i thought i’d share it with you guys!

2DEEP

We all know that the best remix of Datsik’s Firepower is the Moombahcore version by our Munchi.

However, this is also a very cool dubstep version!

DEMON MACABRE UNITS

Anybody who beats up their wife is a pussy as far as I’m concerned and deserves a bloody good beating themselves.  I think the wife beater on this track is getting some terrific wallops & wobbles!

Demon – Wife beater (Master) Forthcoming // 2011 // 6fbs recordings by demonmacabreunit6fbs

DEADMAU5

Have to confess, was NEVER into Deadmau5 even when he was Electro House King, just thought his stuff was always a little lightweight!

Millions would disagree cause he’s like one of the biggest dj’s in the world but then again, so is Tiesto,..lol…suppose that says a lot!

But anyway, I gotta take my hat off to him cause obviously he saw the writing on the wall for all things Electro (I still love some Deep Progressive) House related and has taken the very WISE decision to start making some dubstep beats.

Call him a traitor, Judas, knob jockey or glory supporter or whatever BUT a producer who doesn’t mutate is a dead one as far as I’m concerned.

So a BIG UP 2 Deadmau5 and welcome to the fam!

DUBSTEP MONDAY PART 2 : LED ZEPPELIN'S STEPWAY TO HEAVEN!

php9PCJHp

As many of you will (or ought to) know by now, Led Zeppelin are MY band!

I did a brief one day retrospective on them early last year, check it again HERE (note that is the first of 5 on that day)

phpHDfM7Z

One of my LEAST favourite songs, but perhaps their most famous song, in their whole back catalogue, is that overblown monstrosity called “Stairway To Heaven”.

Apparently it’s one of the most requested songs in the history of radio but I think I’ve heard it maybe once or twice on the radio.

Anyway, I’m not a big fan of the track at all and I’m not really liking this remix either but I thought I’d stick it up anyway.

RUSTIE

phpfMM0Ld

Over the course of a crucial handful of solo releases, a split single with Joker and remixes for the likes of Modeselektor, Zomby and The Big Pink, Glasgow’s Rustie has reached the point where posting a new track on his MySpace page is enough to cause a clamor from fans around the world. The elusive young artist’s appearances at Sonar, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder and our own Warp20 celebrations have been nothing short of revelatory.

As Rustie’s most expansive piece of work to date, Sunburst EP is pretty self-explanatory, a bright and brilliant sensory shock. Taking the rarely-linked sonics of hyper-digital video game music and bombastic, audacious prog-rock Rustie folds them into his melted plastic confection of crunk, classic electro and techno. His Warp debut starts off in epic fashion with the sci-fi stadium rock of ‘Neko’ and the masterful low-riding speaker smasher ‘Dragonfly’.

It’s the melodic waves of ‘Beast Nite’ and the mangled synths and minimal percussion of ‘Chew’ that start to reveal Rustie’s sound away from the dancefloor and looks towards how he’ll evolve towards next year’s full-length, before the rousing finale of ‘Hyperthrust’. It can feel gone in a flash, but that just means it’s time to start the record again.

Love what this dude does, a constant feature here on these hallowed pages.

It’s all good and well sticking up bangers every week but that’s not what we do here.  I’m interested in dubstep that makes me think as well as move and that has some musical element to it that may last beyond the latest dubstep fad.

Fish Finger is an artist who embraces music and that is always demonstrated through his work.  Going on from strength to strength, hence why I’m always happy to feature him whenever he has something new cause it’s always gonna be quality.

LOVE & LIGHT & STEPHAN JACOBS

phpUSXnQI

You all know about Love & Light aka Probiotik And 4centers but you might not know about Stephan Jacobs.  Well, I didn’t until I heard this via Love & Light.

Here’s what he says about himself:

Stephan Jacobs understands how to make people dance! It takes great songs and the skill to take the audience on an exciting journey through body moving music! Equally talented as a multi-genre producer (West Coast Crunk / Uptempo Dubstep/ Glitch House) and as a massive crowd rocker, Stephan has appeared at some of the world’s most prominent music festivals (Coachella) alongside a slew of genre defining artists. He has also released a strong collection of original material and remixes!

When he’s not forging a personal stake hold in the electronic dance music community, he also works on the collaborative project Kether, pushing his list of accomplishments into the forefront of the industry. 2010 brings the release of more original material which Stephan will use to keep the dance floors packed and jumping!

How do you think this compares to the SuperGrouPs of the 60’s/70’s like CREAM?

Bored of a morning i decided to ask Twitter what i should do a cheeky bootleg of to give away for chuckles. Turns out they wanted a mix of No Speak Americano so I only went and bloody did one.

PopSTeP DuB SymPHoNy Revival!

phpJ44eX0

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight “pop” and everybody goes “Awww!” – Jack Kerouac

This is part of the PopSTeP DuB SymPHoNy series but I’ve called this one “VoXSTeP” esp. for Prashant Mistry of Engine-Earz 🙂

There’s so much GREAT PopSTeP that I decided to continue the series and so volume III has been unfinalized and here’s Volume Four!!!

More Pop Quotes:

“what was interesting about what the Who did is that we took things which were happening in the pop genre and represent them to people so that they see them in a new way. I think the best example is Andy Warhol’s work, the image of Marilyn Monroe or the Campbell’s soup can….” Pete Townshend (The Who)

“”By definition pop is extremely catchy, whether you like it or not,” Cobain says. “There are some pop songs I hate but I can’t get them out of my head. Our songs also have the standard pop format: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, bad solo. All in all, I think we sound like The Knack and the Bay City Rollers being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath.”” – Kurt Cobain

And 4 what it’s worth my own take on this too:

“I don’t wanna be elitist, specialist or only audible to the select few AND I don’t wanna be Susan Boyle, X Factor nor Rihanna either BUT I think I do wanna be PoP!” – DJ UMB- Generation Bass

LuvSTeP

phpQY5cNp

Have 2 agree with my friend Sunshine Rays, yep she’s real hippy at heart, least I think she is.  Call it LuvSTep, PopSTep , VoXSTeP or whatever else.  All I gotta say is that I love this kind of DubSTep and it looks like I’m not alone.

These guys from Mad Decent released their first LuvSTep mix in February of this year, Valentines Day, noice one too.  This is their second live follow up and it’s noice too 🙂 but not sure about the Professor Green track.

My PopSTep DuB SymPHonY mixxtapes are all about an “emotional symphony” and introduce fairly unknown producers alongside established ones.  Whereas LuvSTeP is all about a “love-in” and relies on the BIG, established names, therein lies the difference.

However, PopSTeP predates LuvSTeP by a few months and came out first and so who’s the daddy..lmao 🙂

Perhaps we could have a PopSTep versus LuvSTeP mixxtape one day soon?

There are only four questions of value in life…What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same: only luv.

DUBSTEP MONDAY GUEST POST BY OKULUS ANOMALI

We’re very pleased to introduce another great guest to Dubstep Monday.

Today, our good friend, Okulus Anomali is taking over the post.  I’ve known Okulus now for a little while having been introduced to him by our mutual friend and belly dancer Lillith 🙂

Okulus has been a vociferous follower of Dubstep Monday and he was kind enough to accept my invitation for him to do this post.  I gotta say, what a great post it is too man, with loads of new names we’ve never heard of and of course some we’re quite familiar with.  Take it away, maaan!

South Florida / Miami Dubstep:

Okulus Anomali (Partnerz N Grime / PVM Crew)

Hungarian-American Musician/Composer/DJ/Philosopher/Alchemist of the Arts  – ‘Okulus Anomali’ is known for combining his live World Music instrumentation w/electronic music, Dubstep being at the forefront.

His music & mixes evoke the full spectrum of the human emotional experience…from the Uplifting to Dark and his musical aesthetic is based on merging the Beauty with the Beast …attempting to achieve that ultimate balance in sound which lies deep within the human psyche. more info at http://okanom.com & http://soundcloud.com/okulus

This is a remix from a track on my ‘katharsis’ downtempo/glitch/dnb album…this evokes a feeling that lies somewhere in between gravestep, glitch hop and dubstep grime. Vocal and Instrumental mixes.

phplVwdUa

First Dubstep track by w/my Greek partner Herakles on the Ney Flutes, also contains my live performance on the ‘Cumbus’ (Turkish Banjo), Dumbek and Moroccan Zils. This track has that same beauty n’ the beast motif referred to earlier, this track picks sways between the full and half time beats for a proper journey in tempo, emotion and mystical experience. more info at http://okanom.com & http://soundcloud.com/okulus

DJ/Philosopher/Producer.  Being of Brazilian ancestry, the blood of Doctor Jones pulsates to an indigenous rhythm of it’s own. Equal parts DJ, performer, & crafter of musical journeys, he originally drew influence from the South Florida trance, breaks, & techno scene, then later plunged deeply into dubstep and psychedelic dub inspired by Burning Man & related events. His favorite musical styles to perform are deep/melodic/world influenced dubstep, euphoric downtempo, and inspirational psychedelic dub that will light up your chakras and blow the top of your skull clean off. more mixes @ http://www.mixcloud.com/gotjebus

Grimblee

http://i1.soundcloud.com/avatars-000001204799-l7eoow-crop.jpg?6a902c

This track has that glitchy West Coast dubstep feeling to it…quirky at it’s best.

Born In L.A,Ca.Raised in alot of places around the US, Grimblee was inspired to do alot of my art…Graffiti, Djing and Music production have been a huge part of my life. “Music is my girlfriend, my fuck buddy, my time of zen and the only thing that understands me….I AM A NERD!!”

‘Classical Death’

Classical Death by Grimblee

VASKI

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_CshesxVJs4o/SsNdQMZLnnI/AAAAAAAAAe4/vMlySixvqD8/s400/vaski.bmp

Whenever I hear ‘Terror Dome’ I have a vision of the man hanging from a rope…slowly expiring…the palpitations to the gorific editing of the mid-rangy bass tweaks…this track is siiiick. ‘Get Down’ was introduced to me by my ‘Partnerz N Grime’ groupmate ‘Doctor Jones’…it feels like Beethoven Dubstep.

DJ/Producer Vaski sent his demo to rottun manager Excision, he had no idea of the journey that he was beginning. With his first two tracks storming the beatport top ten charts

Koan Sound

http://img.youtube.com/vi/IEWJ32ZF2i0/0.jpg

Koan Sound is not for everyone, yet all would agree they have a signature sound…as myself, they are also about mixing the ‘beauty w/the beast’…a complimentary contrast that does well w/the Dubstep genre. Dubstep…where either extreme can lead us down the path of ‘too relaxed’ or ‘too noisy’…this combo tends to find the ‘balance’ of the road… not for the excapist dubstep listener.

With influences such as The Prodigy, Amon Tobin and especially Noisia, it’s not hard to see why KOAN Sound tracks are synonymous of dark gripping basslines that tear dance floors apart.

Blueberry Pie by KOAN Sound

Garden Of Buddha by KOAN Sound

CULPRATE

http://static.boomkat.com/images/277225/333.jpg

LOVE this track!!!!

Rest assured you will be hearing much more from the ‘Culprate’. This track also follows the ‘beauty meets the beast’formula I so love. When adding rock elements such as a guitar solo to electronic music…it can easily get ivery ‘cheesy’ …but not this track, I couldn’t imagine doing it any more beautifully and melodically than on ‘Don’t Do That’…one of those trax you can listen to over and over and find new nuances…a dubstep masterpiece.

A guy we’ve been championing since the start of Dubstep Monday and he’s a regular here.  That’s because each time he does something new, it’s always worthy to include here.

He just continues to roll out great number after great number and he’s one of my personal faves.  His music always connects with me and I always feel a Supreme Selecta feeling when I listen to him.

Another artist we’ve broken all over blogosphere, there simply is NO STOPPING this express train called AlexisK.  With over 100 phenomenal tracks in the can of xceptional quality, many of the tracks have been signed to various labels including High Rankin’s recently launched Suicide Dub label.

If you have not checked her out then you really don’t know what you are missing.

Watch out for a special xclusive AlexisK release on the Gen Bass label later this year.

PHENOMENAL TALENT, REALLY SPECIAL!

Linkin Park – What I’ve Done (Alexis K) FREE DOWNLOAD =D by AlexisK

The original track, by Agent K & Bella, had a really bad dubstep bootleg made of it which I felt totally degraded and undermined the beauty of the original track. Remixes (or Bootlegs) should a) credit the original artist, b) be a different musical interpretation of the original and/or c) be an improvement on the original. Hopefully this has achieved that. The original artist; http://www.myspace.com/djagentk

If you want to show your support, send him a message or leave a comment here and on his myspace, you’d be doing me a favour.

Thanx
Much love,

PunkSTep – NOVA

phpFxIYRK

PUNK:

They created fast, hard-edged music, typically with short songs, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishmentDIY (do it yourself) ethic, with many bands self-producing their recordings and distributing them through informal channels. Punk embraces a DIY (do it yourself) ethic, with many bands self-producing their recordings and distributing them through informal channels.

An associated punk subculture emerged, expressing youthful rebellion and characterized by distinctive styles of clothing and adornment and a variety of anti-authoritarian ideologies.

If that is Punk, then this is def today’s Punk, this is so anti-establishment that I think the authorities are gonna be giving these young guys heap load of grief very soon.  They are the establishments’ anti-christs for trying to convey this kind of message.

WAKE UP! Never heard such a common sense message in these  very troubled times!

I still believe this band could be huge if they play their cards right.  They are like the modern day Sex Pistols as far as I’m concerned.

Jack Maltby, their lead vocalist and leader exhibits a true ROCKSTAR attitude, part cool, part wanker, part idiot, part genius, part stupid, part intellectual, very outspoken and controversial, like on this track and an enigma!

I love him and I love them, f*^% all the haters!

Sir Jack, I salute you, you got BALLS!

MAJIIKA

php3yosw4

Woah man! Today looks like I’ve got lots of my favourite people on here man and when that happens, it always feels special.

Here is somebody VERY SPECIAL, what can I say about Majiika that I’ve not already said before, that is, she’s gonna be huge, she’s gonna be one of the leading ladies of the Dubstep scene and that she’ gonna be working with some very important people.

As the voice sample says on the first track Scuz Bucket (and man, what a F****** Killa track):

Claw emerged in Houston, Texas in 1999, at the age of 15. He was well-received from the start, making contacts with the local rave DJ’s of the time. By the time he was 16, he was playing at some of Houston’s bigger underground parties and weekly events. After graduating high school, he moved to Florida to pursue music as a profession and began playing at weekly events. After finishing his music engineering studies at Fullsail in Orlando, Claw made his way across New York working at numerous studios with various engineers and producers. He then moved to Las Vegas to pursue his record label with Trillbass, which he co-founded. Claw also just did an official Dubstep remix for Wu-Tang that debuted at 7 on the ITunes Hip Hop chart, and is currently back living in NY to run his art gallery and record label ventures.

Sometimes we get e-mail like this:

Hi, I’ve been following your blog for over a year a now and i really enjoy it.

The reason im sending you this email is because in reddit we have a subreddit for dubstep (we called dubstepit) and yesterday we released our first compilation album with dubstep made by redditors (people who post in reddit).  A 9 track album with really good material.

And I was thinking if there was a chance you could post something about this in Generation Bass, if its not a problem of course.

Sometimes, we’ll check it out if we like the look and sound of it.

Sometimes, we’ll check it out if the sender is polite and does not insist that we must blog it but asks whether we’d like to and if we don’t he’s still cool with us.

Sometimes, we’ll check it out if the sender is not making any over-exaggerated claims, like, this production duo are the hottest ticket in town when maybe 5 people have heard of them OR that this stuff is the BEST shiiit since Led Zeppelin or something silly and unreal like that..cause who could ever be better than my Zeppelin…lol..

So I checked this out and although it’s not going to transform the world,  I do like some of the stuff on it and so check it out for yourselves and download it cause it’s free anyway.
