With releases spanning multiple different labels from Monstercat to Dim Mak to Circus in a range of different genres, the prolific french producers have always been pushing the boundaries of bass music. For me, It was their early track ‘Quarks’

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 51

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 51Deters Beat Lab@0.

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.


Barely Alive‘s latest is completely unexpected and so unbelievably funky. The dubstep hard-hitters can generally be found creating some of the filthiest wobbles in today’s scene, but their brand new LP sees them painting a canvas of incredibly varied genres. From this groovy collaboration with Great Good Fine Ok to drum & bass on “Warrior” and hip-hop on “Ride Out,” the duo are taking their style to new heights in such a refreshing way.


Prismo gets down and dirty on his latest release, “Solo.” This power anthem puts Jason Derulo’s “Riding Solo” to shame, packing a much grittier, stronger punch. Prismo’s categorized this track as alternative rock, and it certainly leans much more than way than his previous electronic releases. Turns out this is the first of many new tracks in the Austin, Texas artist’s next chapter. “This is the first single from the next chapter of Prismo,” he says in the track’s description. “It’s a statement of my evolution and the passion behind my project.”


And from here on out, we merge into full-fledged drum & bass. New Music Friday has been good to the drum & bass community, delivering heaters from T & Sugah, Matrix & Futurebound, Friction, and so many more. This first one from T & Sugah is the second part of their new two-track Viper Recordings EP. The 3/4 pattern makes for an interesting touch, catching the listener’s ear with its unique beat. Subtle builds and detail-oriented breaks beautifully showcase why this Dutch duo has been on the rise.


Viper Recordings has also delivered the latest from the UK’s famed Matrix & Futurebound: “TARDIS.” They build anticipation impeccably in the introduction, leading the listener down a dark hallway straight into a frenzied drum & bass beat. It’s vivid and eerie, packed with intense, pounding bass and a furious melody. Unfortunately, it’s not out in its entirety yet, but the two-minute clip already previews the immaculate sound design these two demonstrate time and time.


Described by Pete Tong as “one of the big dogs,” Drum & Bass Hall of Famer Friction never ceases to thrill. In his latest, the Brighton producer has remixed UK legends The Prodigy and their song “Need Some1.” This rework is perhaps one of the most intense and creative drum & bass tracks I’ve heard in recent months, further hyping The Prodigy’s forthcoming No Tourists album, due out later this year.

Fox Stevenson re-boards the dub train to head ‘Out On My Own’

Fox Stevenson re-boards the dub train to head 'Out On My Own'

Disciple habitué, the gregariously animated Fox Stevenson, has returned to the notorious dubstep domain with his latest and greatest, “Out On My Own,” which has also been featured Disciple’s Disciple X Jericho compilation album. The track puts Fox back in action with his last two-track, drum & bass EP, Glue Gun / Never Before (following a long dnb kick from the producer, in general) just barely hot off the studio presses. Fox’s last dubstep debut, which came in 2017, was also under Disciple: the prodigiously received For Fox Sake EP—which was not without its dnb appendages, of course.

But now, Fox is back with more neck-swinging dubstep. “Out On My Own” features Fox’s signature self-sung vocals, which are a driving force in the complexity ensconcing his productions, overall; as his often somber, though steadfast, lyrics serve as an exquisite counter to his cheerful, effervescent sound design. In usual Fox fashion, with its melodic dubstep bass screeches and stirring lyrics, “Out On My Own” packs an equally pounding and poignant punch.

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.

Hydraulix and Oski are back at it again with another heater! ‘Nothing Can Stop Me’ arrives via the heavy bass purveyors over at Disciple, and it’s guitar driven sound brings a fresh sound to the label and artists alike. ‘Nothing Can Stop Me’ kicks things off with some alien-like sounds before settling in to the

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.

Virtual Riot proves dubstep’s not dead in new EP, ‘German Engineering’

This post was originally published on this site

For his latest release, Virtual Riot revs up the intensity with a six-track compilation that shows him flexing the heavier side of his production style.

German Engineering takes off straight out of the gate, opening with the ferocious “Pray For Riddim.” Virus Syndicate lend a hand in “Show Up,” incorporating energized rap and hip-hop elements into Virtual Riot’s production. As the EP continues through tracks like “Chop Chop” and “Jump The Gun,” Virtual Riot proves the grimiest of dubstep is here to stay.

A slight wind-down begins to take shape in the EP’s later two tracks, as “Komputermusik” — while still heavy on the bass and dubstep elements — incorporates soothing piano melodies into its verses. The final track of German Engineering, “The Darkest Night,” leans into the melodic side of Virtual Riot’s production with playful, choppy vocals and a simple bass-infused melody. He closes out the EP on a high note, reminding listeners just how broad his style range truly is.

German Engineering is out now on Disciple Records.
