SYN flips Marilyn Manson’s ‘This Is The New Shit’ into heavy-metal bass mayhemSYN Marilyn Manson

SYN has flipped one of Marilyn Manson‘s most popular songs, “This Is The New Shit,” turning the audio on it’s head from a heavy-metal, head-banging, demonic track to a heavy dubstep, head-banging, demonic modern edition. He excellently exemplifies the antichrist superstar’s horrific atmosphere through grumbling, low-octave distorted guitar, screeching synths, and modern bass percussion. The buildup showcases Manson’s already-horrific voice pitching upwards, dropping into that varied, distorted bass with more versatility than the standard distorted guitar.

The space between dubstep and heavy metal is a lightly covered veil of guitars and bands versus synths, turntables, and DJs. The Bloody Beetroots are a good example of that crossover.  REZZ has often played her revision of “This Is The New Shit” at her shows, further proving the prince of darkness’ influence in the heavy bass space.

SYN transports listeners to another universe in ‘Abduction’

Electronic music seems to breed an endless sea of anonymous producers, and there is a new one on the scene in the form of SYN. The producer popped up about seven months ago, and has since released remixes for Kill the Noise, Slipknot, along with a few originals. The latest addition to the artist’s original collection is titled “Abduction.” The dubstep tune melts into an intense psy-trance culmination, engulfing the listener in a hectic and otherworldly sonic experience. The producer has labled the track as “new rave,” and with its all-encompassing energy and biting wubs, the classification seems to hit the nail on the head.

SYN’s social media posts are all in first person, so we can deduce that the producer is a single person as opposed to a group, but little is known otherwise about the up-and-coming act.

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.


What better genre than disco for a Friday? French producer kramder astounds with this funky fresh original, “Indigo Bay.” With heavily processed vocals, an infectious mesh of groovy synths, and an irresistible retro beat, “Indigo Bay” adds to the producer’s growing armory of hits. His last appearance was in May on Tchami‘s CONFESSION label, ensuring this up-and-comer has a bright future ahead of him.


The release of Pendulum‘s remix album a few weeks ago seems to have inspired other producers to revive some of the Australian group’s hits, too. SYN, a mysterious producer who’s been making waves with remixes of hard-hitters like Slipknot and Metallica, has joined in the Pendulum remix fun with a “new rave” rendition of “Tarantula.” It’s energy-packed and intense, and still manages to maintain an old-school vibe.


Keeping with the revival of old tracks, Prismo has breathed new life into Kaskade‘s seminal “Disarm You.” The Texan producer adds a dramatic touch to the emotive 2015 track, flinging the listener into a bed of impressive synths at the first drop. He flies through styles throughout the remix, even dropping a sound bite from Jay-Z‘s “Public Service Announcement” before an intense dubstep-influenced second drop. His remix is a whirlwind of sounds and emotions, guaranteed to keep the listener engaged from start to finish.


Russian producer Stendahl brings a serene and peaceful environment with his latest release, “Sunrise,” on Silk Music. The song, part of his three-track Dystopia EP, paints a more pensive atmosphere than one would expect with an EP of the name it has. “Sunrise” is guided by a smooth-flowing piano melody, soothing vocals and a downtempo beat that’s easy to get lost in.


And now, the track I’ve been most excited for all week: The Midnight‘s new single. The synthwave duo began teasing the release of “Lost Boy” a week ago, drumming up excitement by pairing the emotive audio snippet with Stranger Things clips. Upon its release, it’s apparent that this might be one of their best pieces of work to date — even with the absence of their usual ascending saxophone melodies. “Lost Boy” tugs at the heartstrings and is highlighted by passionate vocals and soaring guitar themes. Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle have concocted the perfect dose of smoldering ’80s nostalgia, topped off with impeccable production to complete this four-and-a-half-minute piece of magic.

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.
