While we continually post new dubstep tracks, if you’re looking for a continuous playlist of Dubstep tracks, listen to our playlist courtesy of UKFDubstep.
Where is dubstep going? Has everything already been produced? These are some of the questions that I got to ask dubstep legend, SkiSm, as we sat down at the Los Angeles stop for his ‘Rage By The Pound’ tour to discuss the future of dubstep and more. If you weren’t already aware, SkiSm keeps himself quite busy being the co-owner of Never Say Die and No Tomorrow Records, as well as touring and performing his own shows around the world. His unique take on mixing is what he is most well-known for, using 4 CDJ’s...read more
Typically I’m focused on a top ten but I realized this month that just having ten is really limiting. Awesome artists and tracks were getting dropped off that really deserved to be there. And 10 is kind of an arbitrary number anyway. So from now on, we’ll just be having a artist submissions playlist. The great tracks will make it on there, the good tracks might make it on there, and the crappy tracks definitely will not be. Let us know if you like this new format better than the top ten! This week’s playlist has an eclectic...read more
Maya Jane Coles It is hard to miss this brilliant UK DJ and Producer, Maya Jane Coles. She first started playing with music in her early teens. By age seventeen, she started playing with vinyle and developing her skills. Now, her sound ranges from deep house to dubstep to electro. Cole’s first breakthrough was the release of her debut album, ‘Comfort’. Since then, she has been featured in various magazines, won multiple awards, and featured in BBC’s Essential Mix. It’s hard to narrow down a couple of songs that show why she is such a...read more
Lets face it, chances are by now your New Year’s resolution of going to the gym frequently has fallen off-course. Until now. This dubstep/rap track brings high amounts of energy that will pump you up, no matter what you are doing. The bass is not overpowering, making the song enjoyable; I have heard some dubstep that just ends up being loud noises because there is no sense of direction or harmony. The song does not have long, over-complicated lyrics so you can listen to the track without having to pay super close attention to what is...read more
We have featured BH before here on EDMSauce.com. The UK producer has been delivering incredible remixes of big names in Dubstep and original work on a regular basis. His latest endeavor was a collaboration with Dixonbeats to remix Adventure Club’s ‘Wonder’. The pair keep the hauntingly beautiful vocals from the original song and add beautifully layered synths to make for a compound melody that feels just right. They also masterfully add in Chillstep dub elements throughout the song, that if the listener didn’t know any...read more
I listen to music all day, everyday. Between you and me and the other million people who will see this post, there is a tiny number of artists who I love. Love meaning obsessive stalkerlike love. I would gladly quit my job to be their bus groupie. You’d probably be surprised on who these folks are. Rogue Dubstep is, in my opinion, one of the most underappreciated, worthy of screaming fame djs I’ve ever come across. Love this great new remix of Coldplay, available for free download on his...read more
It is impossible to deny that there is a formula in EDM to get a Beatport chart topping hit. It became shockingly obvious when Daleri released ‘Epic Mashleg’. The song is a mashup of several Beatport top 50 songs that sound almost identical at the drop. With this being the case it makes finding someone who is pushing the parameters of sound design that much more exciting. Max Trippenbach aka MaXD (according to his Facebook, the D is silent) is based in Ottawa Canda. With only just over 100 Facebook fans and 400 Soundcloud...read more
If you haven’t heard of Shake Beats yet, let me take the pleasure in introducing you to this extremely talented international producer/MPC performer. He uses his Music Production Center or MPC in order to record samples and noises from songs and then uses the MPC in order to recreate the song in his own manner. In this video, Shake Beats chooses to remix the famous ‘Gold’ by Adventure Club and recreates the song in a way that can not easily be duplicated. Watch and enjoy this performance here: ...read more
