Ryan Browne transforms Grabbitz and Pegboard Nerds’ collaboration ‘All Alone’Ryan Browne All Alone

Ryan Browne is known for taking hard-hitting tracks and adding heavy metal and electronic elements to them. He did just this when he took his hand at transforming Grabbitz and Pegboard Nerds‘ cutting track “All Alone.” The original was released two years ago on Monstercat with a combination of sharp chords and dubstep drops.

Browne has found a way to make the track more melodic and flow seamlessly together while keeping an intense drum & bass drop. The scattered synths of the original blend into a cohesive pulsating bass whole with Browne’s rendition, breathing new life into “All Alone.”

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 42

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.


Since he started releasing music again at the beginning of last year, Party Ghost has been on a roll with originals. Each one’s been quite varied in style, tied together with his signature dark and somewhat glitchy vibe. “Kill,” released in early April, slams its listener with deep, reverberating bass — much like his most recent: “Phantom.” This stormy, brooding vibe is executed perfectly in “Phantom,” though it’s more subdued than its April predecessor. “In the year 2145 the world is ran by Spectre Industries,” Party Ghost notes in the song description. “The story begins with Phantom.”


Ryan Browne has been consistently wreaking havoc on the dance music world with fiery remixes and originals that put a hardcore twist on tracks like Krewella‘s “Alive” and Alison Wonderland‘s “Messiah.” In his latest, a cover of the classic “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada, Browne whips out the drum sticks for a powerful take on the 2007 classic, mixing in elements of hardstyle and dubstep for a rendition that’s not for the faint of heart.


Armada powerhouse Armin Van Buuren has followed up his mid-April “Therapy” with the release of a funk-injected remix from Throttle. The Melbourne artist has made a name for himself with groovy hits like his take on “Hit the Road Jack” and his remix of Earth, Wind & Fire’s iconic “September.” His “Therapy” remix looks to be another stellar addition to his discography, as he adds a classic disco vibe to James Newman’s vocals.


There are few things I love more than the mixing of genres. German drum & bass duo Neonlight have put a VIP spin on one of their own tracks, combining gorgeous orchestral elements, soaring electric guitar and a drum & bass rhythm for a formidable four-minute venture. Its action-packed, cinematic feel is bolstered by hefty bass and dramatic builds that leave the listener wanting more as the synths peter out at the end.


Fresh off a four-track NEST HQ EP, Canadian duo Chuurch have come back with a sultry remix of REZZ and 13‘s celebrated collaboration, “DRUGS!” Digging into the style they call “lean bass,” the pair have crafted a remix saturated with wobbles and weighty bass. REZZ and 13’s haunting melody drifts in and out of the remix, allowing the duo to carry it through while adding their own unique twist.

Ryan Browne smashes remix of Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey’s ‘The Middle’

When Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey‘s “The Middle” came out at the beginning of the year, it quickly garnered millions of plays and views across platforms. The sugar-sweet dance/pop original featured Morris’ charming vocals over catchy production from Zedd and Grey, making for a surefire hit for all three artists.

Over the months since its release, countless remixes have surfaced on SoundCloud — but perhaps none as heavy as this latest one from drummer Ryan Browne. Browne has been making a name for himself by doing percussion-infused takes on songs like Krewella‘s classic “Alive” and Alison Wonderland‘s “Messiah.” With accompanying videos to demonstrate the hard work that goes into these remixes, Browne’s multi-instrumental skills shine. His remix of “The Middle” is backed by hefty guitar riffs and bass and is led by a fast-paced drum & bass rhythm. He’s taken the tidy pop elements of the original and worked them into a more rugged, passion-packed remix.

It’s nearly impossible to sit still for this one.

Ryan Browne brings the heat with drum & bass remix of Gryffin’s ‘Nobody Compares To You’

This post was originally published on this site

After a year of successful remixes and originals, drummer/producer Ryan Browne is back in 2018 with a compelling remix of Gryffin‘s “Nobody Compares To You.”

Browne kicks off his take on Gryffin’s October hit with a drum-centered introduction that leads the listener to thinking his remix will be a rock-oriented configuration of the song. As the bridge approaches, it becomes clear that the track will take a different direction. He dives into a drum & bass drop, layered with energetic loops of Katie Pearlman’s vocals. Browne’s rock- and metal-influenced musical background peeks through between drum & bass patterns, making this remix a dynamic, fresh take on the original.

Browne’s remix is out as a part of Gryffin’s “Nobody Compares To You” remix package, which contains other reworks of the song by artists like Codeko, Kap Slap and more.

Fresh off the heels of a monstrous remix of Alison Wonderland, Ryan Browne is back with a heavy remix of Linkin Park‘s fiery “Bleed It Out.”

Browne takes to the drums for the track’s introduction, building the anticipation perfectly for the bass-heavy drop he’s crafted. He lets a hefty dubstep pattern take over the chorus of the track before returning to the original song’s vocals for the verses.

“Bleed It Out” was a standout track on the iconic group’s 2007 album, Minutes to Midnight, pushing the boundaries of their music to new heights with Mike Shinoda‘s fiesty rap vocals.

Browne takes the fist-pumping track one step further, stepping up the intensity with a drum-centric introduction and grungy synth work.

Since its release nearly a year ago, Alison Wonderland and M-Phazes‘ “Messiah” has seen a range of remix treatments, but none quite like this.

Multi-instrumentalist Ryan Browne has crafted a powerful rework of the track that dabbles in genres ranging from metal to dubstep – all while holding fast to the track’s original emotive power. He’s shown the work that went into the track in a short video posted to his Facebook page, which shows the producer performing both the drum and guitar aspects of his remix.

With the incorporation of these instruments, Browne gives the listener a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process. As dance music fans increasingly push for live instrumental components in their favorite artists’ performances, productions like Browne’s are crucial to eliminating the button-pushing-only stereotype that exists in the dance music community.

Browne’s “Messiah” remix is a mercilessly complex journey that transcends genres and categorizations to take the listener on a wild ride.

With fiery, rap-packed verses and swinging, anthemic synths, Ryan Browne and Karma boldly step into the spotlight on “Make It Out.”

The track, out now on Pantheon, showcases Karma’s raps over an old school hip-hop beat in the beginning.

“Basically I just took the scenes I see in Chicago and tried to portray them in a way to make everybody relate,” Karma says of his part in the track. “I wanted to convey the message that today’s society does need help, and were not going to get there without understanding what we’re doing wrong first.”

As the song progresses, Browne surprises with a dubstep-infused chorus that wows with impeccably produced wobbles and pounding bass.

“For me, the track is an amalgam of seemingly unsimilar influences that have landed together as one, which is exactly what I’d like to see humans do,” Browne says. “I see the song as a  sort of call to action for everyone to come together amid our differences and realize we are all one and work together as such to heal our country and planet.”

“Make It Out” brilliantly melds the hip-hop and dubstep worlds for an exhilarating hybrid of a track.
