Get Down With Uppermost

We got some new grimy goods from Bassnectar (although it’s not very new, just decided to throw it up here) and if you guys are really looking to get filthy, Doctor P and Zeds Dead are serving up some wompy remixes that should satisfy the dirtiest of tastes √+

Bassnectar – Wildstyle EP (Full CD) [82 MB]

• Blame – Star (Doctor P Remix)

• Plan B – Love Goes Down (Doctor P Remix) (metal jam at the end?)

• Zeds Dead – Rude Boy

• Zeds Dead – Rude Boy (Mr. Vega Angry Bass Monster Remix) (plays well following the original above)

Keeping up with glitch-steppin’ Skrillex, he’s got some new funky wompin’ beats for our enjoyment.

• Skrillex – Cat Rats

Course, when I heard Danger had a mix of Nero’s “Me & You”, I was all over it. Kind of funny though, sounds a bit cheesy with a beat and synths sounding like they were ripped straight from the 80s. Love it.

• Nero – Me & You (Danger Remix)

Uppermost has been stealin’ the show here lately with his huge sound – as you may have noticed in his “Cake Shop Is Dope” track I posted up earlier. So, as per request, I’ve uploaded an 8-track compilation for all you electro/bass-heads out there, just his work though, no remixes. I’ve found it sounds a lot like Glitch Mob meets Wolfgang Gartner meets Skrillex – with a hint of trance here ‘n’ there. But it doesn’t matter how I describe it, cause you ought to just download the comp! Another note to you impatient types out there, a lot of these songs break off into brief but oh so welcome breakdowns/transitions (“Sound Box” drops into an awesome deep-house beat @ 3:00), but you’ll see for yourself soon enough. A Massive Check Plus goes to this one!

Uppermost – Compilation (Full CD) [120MB] √+++

Ellie Goulding – I thought I’d heard it all, then I heard this chipmunk cover of her “Lights!” track. I seldom post hip-hop, but I really liked the beat on this one.

• Ellie Goulding – Lights! (Potomac Boys Club Remix)

The Big 100

So it’s the 100th post on dubPhonics! I thought I’d make this one chock-full of BIG tunes and conclude it with some after hours tracks.

Welcome to the party! Here’s some rave cake to celebrate! This one blows the roof off; brings the walls down! (PS: he’s not really talking about cakes D:)

• Uppermost – Cake Shop Is Dope (Original Mix)

• Uppermost – Cake Chop is Dope (2nd Edit) √+ (Heavier = Better)

But seriously, this lively Sigma remix of Danny Byrd, two contenders in the Drum & Bass ring, will likely bring an uplift to your day / keep our party here alive. Great bass line on this one!

• Danny Byrd – We Can Have It All (Sigma Remix)

Unicorn Kid’s got this crazy beat straight out of the Nintendays. Journey across the treacherous lands of Hyrule in this one.

• Unicorn Kid – Wild Life (Nu:Tone Remix)

Blow your mind with this final servings of DnB.

• Delta Heavy – Abort (Drumstep)

• Avicii & Sebastien Drum – My Feelings For You (The Prototypes Remix) √+

Hometown hero, Bassnectar, dropped the beat earlier this year on Nelly Furtado’s “Magical World”. Huge bass with a hauntingly grimy sound.

• Bassnectar – Magical World feat. Nelly Furtado √+

Hadouken! just cooked this dubby beat not too long ago. Gemini’s remix adds a great new flavor to it.

• Hadouken! – Oxygen (Gemini Remix)

I listened to deadmau5’s new album, “4×4=12”, and its alright (it’s upped ☟below☟ btw). I just think it sounds tired. So, I threw on some older tracks and have been enjoying this one lately. Reminds me of his prog. house classic, “I Remember”.

• Marco DeMark – Tiny Dancer (Deadmau5 Vocal Mix) √+

Pendulum’s “The Island” got a great rework by an upcoming French teen, Madean, who, as VacayWave puts it, “has one of the most refreshing and infectious outlooks on electro-disco-pop that I have experienced in a while”. Electro-Disco-Dub-Pop-Whatever, it’s catchy and ends on a sweet wobble! I feel it should also get the cheese award for its lyrics.

• Pendulum – The Island (Madeon Remix) √ Δ

I’ve got another glitchy piece here full of slaps and breaks… I dunno where to classify this, haha. But it’s by Star Slinger, remixed by none other than the Cocteau Twins. It has a sort of transcendental feel to it that sounds great on any setup! Get the rest of Star Slinger’s work/remixes free on his website! Enjoy – Thanks :DH

• Star Slinger – Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins Rework) √+

Pitchfork is a great site to find new, independent music through. I came across this one the other week and thought its dreamy sound would pair well with the previous song!

• The New Division – Starfield

The party is almost over. Before you depart, maybe you could help me clean up and we can bump deadmau5’s new album? But all jokes aside, I feel like this one has a bland sound to it. As SOFI lyrically states it in her guest track, “it’s all the same thing”, and all the best tracks on it have already been out on Beatport for months while the rest are simply canned filler electro. It’s cool I but I feel like this Joel fella needs to stop producing these comparatively uninspired beats that he’s semi-debuted as soundtracks to his cat’s Youtube videos (lookin’ at you Meowingtons…). Also, dubstep is not his calling… I like the good old days (as everyone else seems to) of “Faxing Berlin”, “Hi Friend”, and of course “Ghosts N Stuff” (I know there’s a hundred other great songs to list, I prefer the more heavy electro work he’s done with Melleefresh, but I’ll list these songs – for generalization’s sake). This is still a great CD, I guess I was just anticipating a new song we haven’t already heard to debut with the CD’s release that aren’t as forgetable. *(Re-upped 5/6/11)
