Want some w-w-w-womping bass; some grimy, face-smashing grind? This here, is dubstep.
Figured I’d just throw a few of these mixes at ya as well:
• The Cataracs – Bass Down Low (Halo Nova Remix) (YouTube rip @ 128)
^ Cool break-beat/8-bit pick-up @ 1:08 ^
I love melancholy, rainy day dubstep tracks like these two. Something about its smooth-swaying, slow wobbling dub, and whispering vocals that allows me to close my eyes, tune out and just chill (with my new ATH-M50s headphones, Mmm…)
Electronic / House
Tiësto, recently named “Greatest DJ of All-Time” by Mixmag, combines forces with fellow Dutchman and fast rising star, Hardwell. Their collaboration here on “Zero 76” is a monumental production, fusing each artists’ style to create an early contender for tune of 2011.
Gramophonedzie is known for their rather big band/dance hall sorta sound. They’ve remixed this track with a cool fusion of funky electro sounds and that brand of reserved nu-disco, a combo that works out to a pretty good tune.
Drum & Bass
A few months ago, I brought you all another much more mellow version of this track here. Today, I’ve got a drum & bass remix by Logistics that brings a much higher energy to the track.
