Rusko – Everyday (Full CD) [52 MB] √+


Hope everyone had a nice Turkey Day – I meant this post to be out yesterday for Dub Friday. Regardless, here are a few dubby tracks to help ease you in your weekend recovery. motha-fuckin’ + across the board here!

• The Temper Trap – Soldier On (Ruskos F’kin Seagull Remix) (Simply Amazing)

Nero kills it again! So heavy. Catch him headlining at the Bassrush Arena at TAO.

• Plan B – The Recluse (Nero Remix)

The mellow side of dubstep. I need more work like this:

• Metric – Collect Call (Imij Remix) (Danke-Shane) [128 kbps]

I’m sure some of you are probably like, “they’re still remixing this?” But give em a play through, cause both are pretty tight! Stephan Jacobs has perfected the wobbles in his remix of “We Are The People” (dips hard @ 1:14) while Roksonix adds a hint of reggae dub to “Hide & Seek”.

• Empire Of The Sun – We Are The People (Stephan Jacobs Remix)

• Imogen Heap – Hide & Seek (Roksonix Dubstep Remix)

Thanks For Holding

Paul Oakenfold’s recent drum ‘n’ bass remix of Rusko’s “Hold On” brought my love for the song to a whole new level! Putting the original dubbyness aside, he’s crafted a wonderful piece around Amber Coffman’s beautiful singing.

Rusko – Hold On (Ft. Amber Coffman) [Paul Oakenfold Remix] √++


Rusko (who killed it at Coachella!) finally released his first full-length CD, “O.M.G.!”, despite his presence on the scene for several years and I, for one, am a big fan of it! For the album, Rusko has broadened his sound to include other electro styles like nu-disco (I love how he’s incorporated it), house, and garage while incorporating a unique variety of guests in his wide-ranged, wobble-tastic debut CD.

√++ Picks: “Hold On”, “Dial My Number”, “I Love You”, “Scarewear”, “Raver’s Special”, and “You’re On My Mind Baby”

Rusko – O.M.G.! (Full CD) [140MB] (Big!)

Rusko – Hold On ft. Amber Coffman (Sub Focus Remix) √++

MONARCHY has some new work out, keeping on track with their success hit, Gold In The Fire

MONARCHY – The Phoenix Alive

• MONARCHY – The Phoenix Alive (Kris Menace Mix) √++

A cool progressive house beat by artist Dubfire.

Dubfire – Roadkill (EDX’s Acapulco at Night Remix)

VanGuard did a fantastic remix of Digitalism’s “Pogo”, swapping the vocals for piano! I meant to post this months ago, guess it got lost in the library. Either way, enjoy!

VanGuard Pogo (Piano Edit)

Jupiter came out with a remix of Junior’s “Mama Used to Say” mixing in a fresh taste of nu-disco style, I’m diggin’ it.

Jupiter – Mama Used To Say

Drop Down

I haven’t posted much filthy dubstep on here, but this song starts with a really enchanted tribal sound then drops into a filthy dubby beat @ 1:50. Both parts are excellent.

• Modestep – Exile √++

…and some follow up dirty dubstep from Rusko.

Rusko – Hold On ft. Amber Coffman (Sub Focus Remix) √++ (crazy grind/wobble)

Going back to the 90’s with this track, Wiley spits over White Town’s “Your Woman” while Hervé drops a nice grimy downtempo beat to pull it all together.

• Wiley – Never Be Your Woman (feat. Emeli Sande) [Hervé Rework] √++

Deadmau5 is back with a new progressive house track with a similar sound to his other hit “Moar Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff“.

Deadmau5 – Some Chords (Original Mix)

I meant to press this one a while back. Designer Drugs brings us another “ambitious club banger” with an interesting video to match (perfectly), plus they’re playing at UCSD’s Sun God Festival!

Designer Drugs – Drop Down (heavy)

I came across this the other night – always diggin’ on CLASSIXX. Treasure Fingers add a bit more rat-tat-tat to the remix and a touch of jazz piano in the background.

CLASSIXX – I’ll Get You (Treasure Fingers Remix)

This next track is one of Calvin Harris’ more recent singles (although it’s nothing new in blog time). It has a nice deep bass line and a catchy chorus but it can get a little repetitive after a while. Nero provides a more calm approach while Laidback Luke’s mix is a bit more synth intensive.

Calvin Harris – You Used To Hold Me

Calvin Harris – You Used To Hold Me (Laidback Luke Remix)

Calvin Harris – You Used To Hold Me (Nero Remix)

Some cool drum ‘n’ bass trance.

BT – Godspeed (Hybrid Remix)

Brooklyn based Chimp Beams is an downtempo, electronic dub trio formed in 2001 by three Japanese men. It’s a rather dreamy CD, the first half is pretty solid while the rest becomes very downtempo/ambient, almost too much. Their music is a mixture of dub, breakbeats, jazz, and techno (you try classifying it!).

CD Highlights: “Menina”, “Brooklyn Dub”, and “Sleeptalking”

Chimp Beams – Menina (Full CD) [93MB]

Dubsteppers Rejoice!

Okay, so I’ve come across a lot of dubstep that I’ve loved, hated, and am still deciding on. MiM0SA has taken my appreciation to a new level. After seeing them perform at Coachella – the best set at the Do Lab hands DOWN, especially when they dropped Mr. Hudson – White Lies (Rusko’s Euphoria Mix), I have scoured the net to get everything of theirs that I can! I’m struggling to even give a favorites list, it’s all so fresh and just flows so well together.

√++ Tracks: “Flux For Life”, “F.T.A.M.F.”, “Lullabyte”, “Psychedelic Stereo”, and “Kinetic”

MiM0SA – Flux For Life (Full CD) [53MB]

MiM0SA – Hostilis (Full CD) [70MB]

MiM0SA – Psychedelic Stereo (Full CD) [33MB]

Finally, MiM0SA did a remix of one of my favorite downtempo tracks by Télépopmusik. I ripped it (cause you can’t find it anywhere) straight from their site, hence the low bit rate. It’s SO good I can’t believe they haven’t released it anywhere else!

Télépopmusik – Breathe (MiM0SA Remix) (Favorite)

Halfway Gone

This track is very similar to all their others but I still like the beat

Adam K & Soha – Who Cares? Really… (Original Mix)

Kings Of Convenience have a really relaxing indie sound while their remixes with Röyksopp and Four Tet are very well done

Kings Of Convenience – I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From (Röyksopp Remix)

• Kings Of Convenience – The Weight of My Words (Four Tet Remix) (Sway)

Kings Of Convenience – Misread

I love Morgan Page’s distinct sound, the “O0oh, O0oh” is also very catchy (it’s been stuck in my head all day)

• Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Morgan Page Main)

Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Morgan Page Dub) (Favorite)

Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Fred Falke Radio Edit)

I also uploaded the rest of the Halfway Gone (Remixes) CD, it includes 8 mixes from Morgan Page, Fred Falke, and Jody Den Broeder (including the songs above^)

Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Remixes) (Full CD) [100MB] Removed By Request

This song has a nice echoing, dreamy beat. I always fall into a relaxing trance under it (CLASSIXX is a highly favored artist of mine)

Major Lazer – Cash Flow (CLASSIXX Glass Bottom Dub Mix) √+

Good trance!

Maor Levi – Reflect

An older, somewhat underground, nu-disco favorit

Matt Turner – Never Say

Just heard this song the other day, clearly a Deadmau5 remix, love his dream-trance style.

Medina – You & I (Deadmau5 Remix)

Mr. Hudson remixed by Rusko for a really nice dubstep flow

Mr. Hudson – White Lies (Rusko’s Euphoria Mix) (Excellent)

I figured since I posted the Mr. Hudson mix above, I’d post the other track of his that I friggin’ LOVE

Mr. Hudson – Everything Is Broken (Feat. Kid Cudi) (Favorite)

I posted the Kaskade remix of “In My Arms” a while back, I meant to upload this one with it. Either way, it has a great Benny Benassi appeal to it

Plumb – In My Arms (Bibmo Jones Radio Edit)

The Whitest Boy Alive is another great indie band that you should really check out! These remixes have a lot of pop and energy. Andy Webb’s remix blends The Whitest Boy Alive with tracks from Mylo and Cut Copy (another great band). Enjoy!

The Whitest Boy Alive – Golden Cage (Fred Falke Remix)

The Whitest Boy Alive – Otto’s Golden Journey (Andy Webb’s Dreamy Blend)

Another favorite track of mine with an awesome grinding beat

• Cerf, Matiska & Jaren – Light The Skies (Retrobyte’s Classic Electrobounce Mix)

I uploaded my favorite remix of Light The Skies to YouTube
