Freshly minted single “Grind” by Hydraulix, Oski, and Creaky Jackals further enforces the creativity and sound design in underground dubstep and bass music. Creaky Jackals are always massively impressive but hearing their signature future bass sound in harmony with the dirtier vibes of Hydraulix and Oski creates an awesome, club-ready single. This track is like Flume on crack. Learn more about Creaky Jackals on facebook. Learn more about Hydraulix on...read more
Most modern bass music is focused on the drop. Sometimes, a tension-building intro or buildup is neglected in lieu of the drop. “Falling In” by Illenium & Said the Sky sets the hook with a down-tempo introduction and passionate vocal. The track slowly builds into a wub-filled, transformers-esk powerful climax. “Falling In” doesn’t follow the expected EDM song structure: It has only one crescendo. The sound design is original and developed meticulously. Finally, the vocal by Mimi Page is carefully woven into...read more

Available to snap up today on Beatport is the new joint EP from Habstrakt and Megalodon. Spanning four tracks in length, “The Storm” is pure dubstep fire from the pair, who are both signed to Never Say Die. Whether it’s the syncopated snarls of opening track “Yabba Dabs”, which has already proved popular on the live circuit, or the bubbling rhythmical progression of “Riddim101″, the production quality here is through the roof. The title track sways along in impressive style, particularly during its...read more
I’ll have to agree with DJ Green Lanterns alternative name- The Evil Genius- given to him not only by his listeners, but his peers due to his master crafting skills. After hearing Funk Space Coaster only once, I admittedly deemed myself an avid follower of his. In this feel good jazzy single, Green Lantern hooks listeners by connecting the essence of “soul music” with today’s dubstep style. The funky beat of the song is dominated by a strong voice, a collection of trumpets and is accompanied by a bit of trap for...read more

Albany starts the tour so its great to have my city tip off...read more
KDrew is one of my more recent findings. Whilst looking at a video game bloopers complication, I came across him and decided to listen to some of his songs. I was very impressed, as he seemed slightly more professional. After some research, it turns out KDrew is infact a DJ who works for couple of Night Clubs. Not bad at all! Not only that, he has a mini studio at home in which he makes a lot of music, but one thing that he has which really puts him in the lead is his voice. O glory. It is literally amazing. But anyway, his focus is on Dubstep...read more
This remix by Big Sandz is impressive; the finished product is a high quality track that uses the melodies and vocal samples from Porter’s original over continuous strong bass with your traditional dubstep wobble. I’m a little torn over this track, as I expected to be. The effort is fantastic, and were this an original track, I’d have no further commentary. However, Fellow Feeling is arguably one of the most meaningful songs on the Worlds album, meant to represent Porter’s psychological struggle with the current state...read more
