Excision releases his massive 2018 Lost Lands set along with 24-track festival compilation album

Excision releases his massive 2018 Lost Lands set along with 24-track festival compilation albumEcision Lost Lands

Lost Lands ended two months ago, and bass heads will be happy to hear Jeff Abel, better known as Lost Lands helmer Excision, dropped some much needed content from the low-end showcase. Excision released the two-hour set he threw down in Legend Valley on the first night at his weekend bass Mecca, along with the festival’s official 2018 compilation. The 105 track mix contains tracks from a variety of X’s collaborators and up-and-comers in the bass music scene. It’s quite the list of artists that head bangers will certainly recognize and maybe even find new favorites in.

This heavy dose of bass music takes dips and dives from the highest energy head-banging madness to more downtempo wubs for much needed breathers. The compilation boasts 24 tracks and features artists such as Space Laces, Dion Timmer, Pegboard Nerds, Sullivan King, YOOKiE, HE$H, Carbin, Virtual Riot, PhaseOne, Riot Ten, and many more. Listen to both below.

PhaseOne x YOOKiE – State Of Emergency

This post was originally published on this site

Less than a month after releasing a massive remix of Dillon Francis and NGHTMRE on Mad Decent, duo YOOKiE have teamed up with fellow dubstep heavy-hitter PhaseOne for “State Of Emergency.”

Frantic breathing and a ringing phone usher in the track’s introduction, with anguished screams arriving as the build starts to increase. “911, what is your emergency?” leads into a filthy dubstep drop, layered with a hefty dosage of wubs.

From start to finish, “State Of Emergency” is an intensely haunting bass journey, packed with panic and absolutely filthy bass. It will be featured on PhaseOne’s forthcoming EP, Double Up.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 33

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Fresh off his debut album in October, KRANE continues to wow. His latest is a stunning remix of Dua Lipa‘s “Be The One.” Backed by top-notch sound design throughout and a series of dramatic, fluttering synths in the chorus, KRANE’s crafted a beautiful rendition of an already tiptop song.


After months of waiting, dubstep fans finally have new Dodge & Fuski material. Turns out they’ve been working on an 13-track album, humbly titled The Greatest Album of All Time, and “Mistakes” with PhaseOne and The Arcturians is one of its latest singles. The Disciple track is one of pure energy. It’s packed with the heavy wubs we know and love from both bass acts, along with haunting vocals from The Arcturians that give the track a unique flavor.


Koven kick off the sophomore installment in the Monstercat x Rocket League collaborative album series with a drumstep original, “My Love.” Katie Boyle’s heartfelt vocals put a more lighthearted touch on the verses, but other parts of the song are a whole different animal. The duo have put together a track that exudes intensity in the best way, making it the perfect kick-off for the forthcoming compilation album.


Unlike Pluto has tapped into my nostalgia. Last Friday, he released an incredibly emotive cover of My Chemical Romance‘s 2004 hit, “Helena.” His vocal-centered rendition strips down the original track to a slower-paced ballad that oozes pure emotion and passion. Unlike Pluto’s voice is so well-suited for this track, and I’ve found myself re-obsessed with it 14 years later.


Seven years and countless remixes later, Porter Robinson‘s “Unison” remains one of the greatest hits of the early “EDM” era. It’s been reworked, revamped, reshaped, and re-imagined into genres across the board — and some are truly a treat. This latest one from SYN is a substantial contender. The mysterious producer ushers in the iconic melody before plunging listeners into a sea of glitchy bass. It’s raw and harsh, but in the best possible way.

H/T to DA managing editor M. Cooper for this one.
