Here’s a free download you don’t want to miss. It’s called “Reason” by Stabby. His name sounds dangerous and it’s an accurate description of his sounds as well. This tune starts out melodic and pretty and remains at mid-tempo. However, as typical per Stabby this goes from 0 to 100 real fast with some furious dubstep. This producer is making it look easy to combine the pretty melodies and the apocalyptic dub wobbles. Inspired by 80’s music and classic rock, 19 year-old Stabby is paving a unique path in...read more

The crunching drums immediately let us know that Dangerouz lives up to his name. The kicks and snappy snares fill the ranges, giving us a top to bottom lashing of frequency content that stacks up tall on any speaker. The breaks bring in a complex and grinding bass line that’s supercharged with subtle, but effective distortion and a nasty compression that pushes the bass end straight to the front of the well-executed mix. If you were a fan of early upfront Electro House, then ‘Candyman’ will be right at home on your playlists. The side...read more
