Gammer – Stay Tonight ft Dylan Matthew (Ray Volpe Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Ray Volpe is one of dubstep’s most prolific up-and-coming producers. With remixes of GTA and Delta Heavy under his belt, as well as releases on OWSLA and Mad Decent, the North Carolina producer is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.

On his newest remix of Gammer and Dylan Matthew‘s “Stay Tonight,” Ray Volpe embraces Gammer’s melodic buildup with open arms. “And it’s okay if what you want is a breakup” sings Matthew, as the track’s piano samples evoke a sense of melancholy. As the track culminates, Volpe’s signature wobbles and thrashing dub synths usurp the focus of the listener.

The stark contrast between melodic buildup and heavy-duty breakdown is reminiscent of early dubstep legends like Skrillex‘s seminal remix of “Cinema” or Nero‘s iconic rework of “Feel So Close.” The track serves as another stepping stone for one of dubstep’s most incendiary up-and-coming acts.

Nero vs Skrillex – Promises (Prismodified)

This post was originally published on this site

Prismo has unveiled a rework of Skrillex & Nero’s collaborative “Promises.”

The original track was released on August 7, 2011 — the same summer that dubstep utterly invaded North America. Since then, “Promises” has been a staple in both Skrillex and Nero’s sets and has been played at countless festivals across the globe.

Nearly seven years later, Prismo adds his own twang to the track. The twenty year old, Texas-based producer injects his characteristic teeth grinding verve into the song, overlaying a frantic siren over whomping bass lines. The track serves as a glimpse into dubstep’s past, while also reinventing its structure with a contemporary stamp.

Tackling a classic, LA’s Pixel Terror have converted Skrillex‘s legendary track “Right In” into a prime remix perfect for any festival set.

The prospect of remixing Skrillex is a daunting one, but Pixel Terror’s fluid style, surprising catchy moments, and the colorful slamming bass surely does the original justice. The duo manage to remain faithful to Skrillex’s hit while updating it into something entirely their own. On the strength of significant support dates in 2017 and this most recent remix, Pixel Terror is primed to ride a wave of momentum into 2018.

This post was originally published on this site

Touted as one of dance music’s brightest up-and-comers, Oshi is already a force to be reckoned with, and many would contend that he hasn’t even really reached his full breakthrough moment yet. The young UK-bred beat maker displays a wealth of potential with a steady schedule of releases and he’s already caught the attention, and support, of major players in the game including Baauer, Mr. Carmack, and Skrillex to name a few. From common bedroom producer to certified production prodigy, Oshi’s catalog of official releases continues to grow, though some of his best work comes by way of personal stash bootlegs and disposable remixes uploaded to Soundcloud.

For his latest delivery, “Swagger,” Oshi drops off an inventive take on T.I’s 2008 powerhouse collaboration with Jay Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne, “Swagger Like Us,” derived from Diplo and M.I.A.’s seminal “Paper Planes.” Building a bouncy, percussive trap beat around the original track’s iconic “no one on the corner has swagger like us” hook from M.I.A., Oshi pieces together a short and sweet syncopated transition tool for DJ sets that’s worth repeated listens to make up for the tune’s tantalizing length.

While Diplo and Skrillex’s alias Jack Ü remains on an indefinite pause, that doesn’t mean that the two haven’t been collaborating behind the scenes. The ASCAP registration for Diplo’s recent  feature, “Get It Right,” credits Sonny Moore (Skrillex) as one of the song’s writers.


The The ASCAP file doesn’t exactly signal the impending return of Jack Ü, but does indicate that dance music’s electronic power couple might be more inclined to take up more projects in the future.

Skrillex & Poo Bear – Would You Ever (Naderi Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Since it’s release in July, remixes of Skrillex and Poo Bear‘s “Would You Ever” have popped up all over the internet. That track has gotten reworks of all sorts, but perhaps none as dramatically bass-heavy as Naderi‘s.

The Sydney producer has put his own spin on the track, shifting the focus to an ominous bass pattern. He builds the tension almost right away, with a slow, dramatic build that spans the entire first minute of the track. The focus then shifts to a drastically deep bass line that dominates the entire chorus for a dark, powerful effect.

“I heard the original while I was driving around and fell in love. Skrillex sent me the parts and I did most of it in one night. I really wanted to make something that didn’t sound like anything I’d heard before.”

Naderi was on a mission to make something totally unique and effectively fulfilled his goal with this impressive remix.

Per usual, MUST DIE! brings out his hardest hitting sounds for this remix. The Never Say Die producer puts a dubstep spin on the bass house original, with driving, grinding synths and aggressive drums. Proving MUST DIE!’s consistent innovation and fearless production, this track is a must listen.

Party Thieves gives Skrillex & Ronny J’s Remix of Ekali’s ‘Babylon’ a massive trap reworking [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

Skrillex and Florida-based producer Ronny J recently linked up to take on the latest OWSLA recruit Ekali and his Denzel Curry-assisted hit “Babylon.” Following up Skrillex’s masterful remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble,” the track is unbelievably and expectedly attention-grabbing.

Now, the quickly rising trap mastermind Party Thieves has given the Skrillex and Sonny J spin a rumbling trap rework.

While Skrillex’s remix relies on a slow build before exploding into full-blown dance floor aggression, Party Thieves injects a monstrous tempo into the tune right off the bat. Most notably, Party Thieves jumps between a variety of tantalizing tempos in his take, taking the track to another level entirely.
