“Gunmetal Black”, the latest single from Floridian producer Varien is a tune straight out of the Matrix. The intro is deep and mysterious with an intense drum n bass vibe. A middle-eastern vocal and flute transitions into an energetic orchestral drop. The headbanging crescendo launches into a world of heavy metal, rock n roll. This song brilliantly combines so many different musical styles into one, coherent piece of art. You can support Varien by liking his facebook page or by purchasing “Gunmetal Black” on...read more
Out of all the tracks on Au5′s latest ‘Follow You’ remixes EP off Monstercat, the Rootkit remix is by far the most impressive. Having already fallen in love with the original track’s electrifying vocal line, Rootkit adds a heavy dose of drum step that creates a base head’s wet dream. Danya Nadeau on vocals absolutely deserves praise for her talented work by driving the emotional energy of the song throughout it’s entirety. I have the the full song posted below and don’t forget to check out the rest of...read more
Fawns is the alter ego of 22 year old producer from the UK, Sam Eley. A former member of the Royal Navy, he now dedicates his time to producing orignal tracks and remixes that are slowly becoming more popular. Sit back and enjoy this melodic Dusbtep mix of 3lau’s How You Love Me ft. Bright Lights., which delivers a lot of energy but also keeps a chill vibe through the simple progression of the tune. This track is available for a free download on Fawns SoundCloud, through the link...read more
Fox Stevenson is a UK bred singer, song-writer, and producer who deserves a massive amount of attention after listening to his latest release. His new project Throwdown EP does exactly as the title would hint at; throws the fuck down. Layered with the talented musicians own vocals, this hyper-electro-meets-dubstep-meets-DNB hybrid is an extremely rad sound that will seriously remind you of some early Flux Pavilion. The stand out track for me has to be the opener, “High Five” it’s high energy sound is just the track to...read more
After a wild run of bookings in past few months, including music festival slots at Mysteryland USA, Electric Forest, and last weekend’s rained out Hudson Project (before the storm). Moby has released a new DJ mix simply titled “July 2014 (Electro)” on SoundCloud. Opening his set with a snippet of his own classic Natural Blues, Moby then romps through a roll-call of recent electro-house hits from DJ Snake, Congorock, Firebeatz, MightyFools and more. Also included is his latest collaboration Death Star with Darth & Vadar on Dim Mak....read more
If you ask us, who are the top ten most talented producers, Skrux would be on that list. Skrux is a producer in the truest sense of the word. He doesn’t DJ, in fact he doesn’t even want to DJ, and yet he’s amassed a massive following. This is done on pure talent – not theatrics and not marketing and not a PR team. His latest track, If You, isn’t my favorite production of his, but it’s still better than anything else I’ve heard all day. If you haven’t heard of Skrux yet, and you like artists like...read more
Let’s be clear, not all tracks can pull off emotional vocals; all the elements must be right for a track to portray the feeling behind a set of vocals. A track that is powerfully emotional has vocals and lyrics that can truly resonate the atmosphere of the song, matching the melody to create a song that makes you feel the emotion deep down inside. In this remix of “The Time Wizard” the simplicity of the song makes the melody and lyrics that much better; a dubstep song without the additional filler noise, this remix gets the...read more
Said The Sky, aka Trevor Christensen, recently remixed Gemini’s “A Fire Inside,” and I personally am very impressed. This track definitely embodies melodic dubstep, so if you’re in a more relaxing mood today than this remix will definitely hit the spot. It’s much different from the original, but Christensen did a great job on it. The way he reworks the vocals and slows it down gives it an incredibly chill vibe. Such a clean and beautiful track. I’ve been playing it during long late night drives, and it...read more
