Random fact: I am a huge fan of snails. They are my go to for doodling in meetings. So of course when I found out there was a producer named SNAILS, I was all over that. Canadian producer Snails is fast becoming known for hard hitting electro house that tends to devolve into some filthy dubstep. Snails and heRobust Pump This is a collaboration and it is a slamming banger. I can definitely hear the heRobust influence as well. I’d love to see more collaborations from these talented producers, as I think their combined sound is unique, fun,...read more
A win for both parties, remix’s are essential and appreciated by both the original artist and remix creator. Here DANK threw his own spin on Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow” as she continues to give us catchy tunes with impressive raps overtop. Trapped out and filled with some heavier bass, it’s a good tune that brings something new to the original. Check it out here and you can purchase on...read more
This is what we need more of. More Bass is always welcome yes, but positivity and attaching what we do for the good of others! Apart of the Bass for Autism campaign, which you can like on Facebook, is Felxprod’s “Revival”. Selected for the BFA Vol. 2, “Revival” is a great track that would be great to see a live band perform with the piano, drums and guitar elements. Nonetheless, Felxprod does it all himself on his own piano and it’s majestically BASS-ic and rock solid. Listen Here: And for more tracks...read more
It’s safe to say LAXX has knocked us for six with this one. The third part of his ‘Step Free’ EP, ‘Rescue Me’ has just dropped as a free download and quite frankly, it’s massive. Exhilarating strains of vocals fly alongside as LAXX switches up the tempo effortlessly. Bass heads, you need this one in your life. Grab it...read more
Well, Borgore dropped a new womping single a few days ago titled ‘Turn Around’ as part of his recent album ‘#NEWGOREORDER.’ After giving this one a listen, I scrolled down to read the reviews, and just as I suspected, they were very mixed: extreme love or extreme hate (I’d have to say skewed to the hate side). Although covered in interesting-yet-raunchy vocals, Borgore and electronic pal Dan Farber lay a mad beat and drop (true to form). I could picture a crowd going ratchet at the drop, and I actually quite like...read more
This is totally not like anything I’ve ever heard from Flosstradamus. The chillstep feels are in full effect in this very beautiful track – I had to stop what I was doing and check who made it again, that was my level of surprise. Floss is going out on a limb here and maybe their die hard fans won’t like it, but I love the new direction (one track is maybe just a brief deviation from the norm, maybe not a new direction, but if this did become a new direction I’d be...read more
MONXX is a dubstep producing duo from Petersborough, England that have just released a new track titled ‘Adrenaline’. This track absolutely messes with your mind, full of dub-bounce, dark melodies, detuned risers, and nightmarish drops. The track opens with a grinder organ style accompanied by head-pounding 808′s. The detuned build and drop that follows throws the reader into a dark and twisted production. I really quite haven’t heard anything like this in a while, and this type of production doesn’t come...read more
