Things have been getting a bit busy for those Saulsky brothers of Synchronice. Besides getting some snazzy new press photos like the ones you see up top, they’ve announced that they have a 6/18 release date for the Countdown EP coming out on Datsik’s record label Firepower Records and today they released this remix of Imagine Dragons as some promo material. Already having had a chance to hear the upcoming EP I can safely tell you that these guys have some HUGE material coming up and you should pre-order Countdown EP right now!
If you don’t know this by now, I am a huge fan of anything that is remotely in the realm of dubstep. Although as of late i’ve been trying to expand my horizons on the electronic music I listen to, and the artists I listen to. Below are bunch of tracks that once again encompass many genres of electronic music. Some of these are much more well known then others. Be sure to listen to them all, because it never hurts to try the widen the array of music that one listens to.
I missed the boat on this whole Trinidad James “popped a molly I’m sweatin” thing so bad until about 2 weeks ago. Turns out Protohype & Carnage didn’t miss a beat and instead took the opportunity to unleash a downright disgusting dubstep remix of the viral hit. I can only imagine this is gonna get played out WAYY too much at raves around the world and with good reason…as long as we can still watch Lebron James sing this before a game on infinite repeat I’ll be satisfied.
Trinidad James – All Gold Everything (Protohype & Carnage Festival Dub Remix)
I’m trying to walk out the door and it turns out that it’s just not in the cards. I clicked on SoundCloud just to see if anything interesting came up in the last 20 minutes and of course PatrickReza decides to throw a curveball at me and gives out his signature version of Christmas spirit in the form of a dubstep remix of Rockin Around The Christmas Tree. I know that many of you are leery looking at this as I was, but as far as giving a non-cheezy remix of a Christmas song, PatrickReza has done an awesome job!
In a day that seems to be full of new TNJ talent, we have a beautiful ambient dubstep track courtesy of Nexus. Already having found himself on tons of other huge music blogs and opening for big names like Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis and Mac Miller, we were lucky enough for him to reach out to us and draw our attention to his amazing production. The overall soundscape is awesome and the wobbles are gentle enough to be the cherry on top of these beautiful melodies and synths that seem to cascade from nowhere. Assorted links below!
It should come without surprise that it’s been a hot minute since I’ve listened to anything from Chamillionaire. We can thank Dotcom for returning the rapper to some form of relevance with this huge dubstep remix and although I’m not a huge dubstep man myself, production credit has to be given for an absolutely menacing remix.
God I hate having two tests on one day. I’m gonna be rotting away in the library studying for most of today so my posts will be a bit sporadic but with that said, I couldn’t wait to get this up on the site. Aylen adds his name to the list of people who remixed Clarity since Zeddgave out the studio acapella and it has already became one of my favorites. He takes the Adventure Club/Seven Lions approach by employing some beautiful melodic progressions with a dubstep kinda feel to it.
I knew there was a post I kept forgetting to do in all this craziness. Datsik, one of Canada’s leading players in menacing bass music dropped these two trap VIP edits of his original tracks that he usually saves for his live sets. I recently read an interview (I wish I could remember where so I could link it through) where he said he loves the added element trap music has brought to EDM because clearly it only serves to accentuate that sound he works so hard to build. This is just straight sourface bass music.
Steve Aoki’sDim Mak Records have steadfastly established themselves as one of the most prominent group of artists on the EDM scene today. The label’s French foursome Dirtyphonics dropped their newest dubstep single DIRTY about two weeks ago, and since its release, I haven’t been able to stop listening. The single is a monster, with an entrancing buildup taking you into a signature Dirtyphonics drop full of big bass and catchy melodies.
If the original isn’t quite your style, don’t worry. Along with the single came four different takes, with remixes from names like 12th Planet and Metrik. 12th Planet’s remix is an example of why following the trap genre’s evolution has become so fun. Watching big names put their spin on trap leaves me anxious to hear where else this genre can go. Nicolas Malinowsky also puts out a wonderful trap remix that might hit closer to home for all of you out there who enjoy the ‘classic’ style of trap that we’ve come to know.
Metrik creates a wonderful Drum n Bass remix with enough twists and turns to keep you interested and engaged throughout the full 4:13. Darth & Vader contribute a wonderful electro-house remix, kicking up the pace from the original, but keeping the hard bass, ultimately making the remix a great banger with superb synth-work.
Make sure to give this track and the remixes a listen-through. If you enjoy it, grab the whole set on Beatport!
While some may find this to be blasphemous, I’m pretty impressed with what Hot Young Girls was able to do with this remix. They kept it really stripped down and kept it from being cheezy and I’m thinking that if I was at a show and heard someone throw these vocals out there I’d be goin off. This is my introduction to this production duo so I’m gonna leave you with all their assorted links and let you guys get familiar with me.
