Blackburner is an upcoming heavy bass, dubstep and glitch music DJ/Producer duo that are producing some heavy stuff right now. Just releasing an album only a few days ago labeled “Drop Bass Not Bombs”, Blackburner is sure to become a house hold name. A taste of this album would be their song “Bass Driven Thing”, which if you could guess has some pretty crazy bass. The song has interesting influences of rock, industrial and electronica music. While this music may not be for all, those who are into the heavy bass movement should keep Blackburner on their radar because they are going to blow up the scene…and your speakers.
Midnight Conspiracy and Cenob1te have collaborated on a heavy bass/dubstep/electro track together with some pretty ridiculous results. The track has quite the piano work in the beginning with something close to an egyptian feeling to it. From the pulsating electronic stabs in the background to the piano chords this is a solid dubstep track. I may not be a big fan of dubstep, but this one stood out to me. This is also the first single Midnight Conspiracy has released on Ultra Records. You can purchase on beatport off the link below.
Seven Lions is a fairly underground dub step producer. For those of you who don’t know, popular dub step artists like Skrillex or Nero fall under a sub genre known as “brostep”: full of heavy wobbles and blistering sirens. Typical dub step is actually much more melodic, and can be incredibly cool as demonstrated by Seven Lions in the title track of his new EP Days To Come. Singer Fiora lends her soothing voice to a calm intro before the drop comes in and lifts the listener with a fantastic melody. Check out “Days To Come” below.
UK duo blessed their fans with a free download yesterday in the form of a dance-floor banger, “Won’t You (Be There).” This track was rumored to be a collaboration with Skrillex and numerous live rips spread around the blogosphere, but the end result is actually a Nero solo track that was released free through Soundcloud. ”Won’t You” has the heavy dubstep drops that we’ve come to expect from the British electronic music act. Download/stream the new single below and look out for the re-release of Welcome to Reality on October 22nd.
Circus Records released this 20 minute free summer mixtape that features tracks from Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, DJ Swan-E and Earl Falconer (of UB40 fame). You won’t be disappointed with the bass heavy drops and progressive build ups throughout this mix. If you are a big fan of dubstep, I highly recommend getting this on your iPod. Circus Records is made up of some of the best dubstep producers out their and this mixtape shows that. The bootlegs incorporate some progressive house and those WUB WUB WUB drops that we’ve come to expect from the Circus producers. You can download the mixtape over on Circus Records website, but if you do, make sure to check your junk mail. Or you can just pick up your copy below. Hopefully this accounts for all those WUB WUB WUB Wednesdays I skipped over haha. Enjoy!
The talented English rock band let go a new experimental single last week in the form of an interesting music video. The dubstep influenced single features minimal vocals by lead singer, Matthew Bellamy, few guitar riffs and some backing drums, but features an audible symphony that makes this song almost sound like an intro to an album. The wobbles are a little repetitive, but may make up for a crazy live show. I feel like this track could grow on me when I listen to the bands new album, The 2nd Law, in its entirety, but for now it is not that impressive.
Do I think this is good dubstpep? No, not really, but I can’t complain that much when a band experiments to this extent. I’m sure we will be hearing a lot of different sounds on Muse’s upcoming album. Listen to the single below.
Although I can’t tell you that I know much about Gentlemen Thieves, I can tell you that Gentlemen Thieves new dubstep single, “Cherry” is a banger. I haven’t heard a good dubstep track in a while so it was nice to receive this song in my email. The best part is that you can download the song for free over on Gentlemen Thieves facebook. Stream “Cherry” below.
The man whose mix was once mistaken as an Alesso and Avicii collaboration and whose covers usually consist of ponies is back with a new track. He takes the experimental path with this one and still delivers. Although the progressive house lovers may not enjoy this one, I’m sure Archie will be able to reel in new a few fans with this electro/dub sound. I personally loved “One More Cupcake” as it shows how Archie is a very versatile artist. Recently Archie let go another different sounding track entitled “Mystro” which also showed his versatility. Don’t hate the Russian, he is just experimenting. I’m sure you’ll be hearing more of those Avicii-esque tracks in the summer and also hear Archie create his own sound. Listen/download “One More Cupcake” below.
We’ve been lacking with the dubstep posts recently, so I thought I might as well just bring back Wub Wub Wub Wednesday. Although I can’t promise that I’ll come through with Dubstep fulled posts every week, when I do they will all be must downloads. Also, shout out to Ryan who said he missed getting dubstep from YesGoodMusic.com on the chatbox. Check that out on the sidebar, don’t be shy. This week I have a new Example x Flux Pavilion track entitled “Daydreamer” (people from the UK can pre-order the remix EP on iTunes already here), Bassnectar ft. Amp Live, Knife Party remix of Labrinth’s single “Last Time”, Doctor P’s hit “Neon”, Nero’s original mix “Me & You”, and lastly my favorite feature on this weeks Wub Wub Wub Wednesday…”One Click Headshot” by drumstep/dubstep producer Feed Me. Boom, headshot. Hit the jump to stream/dl the tracks.
Regardless if you love or hate Skrillex, you can not deny that he has done a great job of making dubstep a more known genre. At his show the other night in Las Vegas, Skrillex dropped his upcoming collaboration track with Damian Marley. Marley’s reggae vocals surprisingly go very well with Skrillex’s beat. The drops are sick, even if you aren’t the biggest Dubstep fan definitely give this a listen.
