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.

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.

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.

If, like me, you’ve been a fan of Fox Stevenson for quite some time, hear me when I say this is some of his best work to date. True Fox fans love his more melodic vocal driven work and you’ll be glad to know the For Fox Sake EP ticks all the boxes. The riff heard

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 13

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.


Fox Stevenson‘s For Fox Sake EP made its debut on Disciple on Oct. 27, featuring three original mixes and one remix. Stevenson, who has been releasing a little bit of everything lately, largely featured dubstep on this EP — aside from the fourth track, a drum and bass remix of “Miss You.” He returns to his roots for this bass-heavy rework of his own track, implementing a racing beat to complement his vocals and the original track’s grungy dubstep wobbles.


As a sucker for emotion-packed vocals over a drum and bass rhythm, Dualistic’s “Thunder” featuring MENN caught my ear immediately. Dreamy vocals take center stage in the minute-long build, leading up to a surprisingly bold drum and bass drop. Liquicity Records hit the nail on the head with this release, as it perfectly evokes a feeling of nostalgia while still providing the fast-paced rhythm listeners like me crave.


KRANE‘s new Fallout LP is insane. Throughout the entirety of its 10-track length, the producer takes his listeners on a deeply personal journey, “a celebration of where [his] sound is today.” A stand-out track to me is “Titan,” featuring Nolan Van Lith. This dramatic, anthemic trap tune is so detail-oriented, setting it apart in the saturated trap market. Powerful synth melodies shine in the chorus, made more dramatic by an underlying trap beat.


Rob Gasser‘s playful, glitchy style shines through perfectly in the release of his “Ricochet” VIP mix. In the track description, he notes that the drop featured in this VIP rework was originally supposed to be used in the March NoCopyrightSounds release before he scrapped it. Though it’s short at 2 minutes and 10 seconds, it’s a fun new look at the original track with trippy video game-like vibes and a heavy beat.


Since seeing Puppet live for the first time in September, I have an even greater appreciation for his completely unique style. In recent releases, he’s been showcasing his own vocals layered over top of his impeccably produced instrumentals. August’s “Here Again” and the latest release, “Bigger Picture,” highlight a more punk rock-based style of electronic music with raw vocals and catchy guitar riffs. I’m loving this new style and can’t wait to see what he releases next.

Oolacile’s Debut EP On Disciple Records Is Out Now

This post was originally published on this site

When you think about the future of dubstep, I hope you’re thinking about Oolacile.

Too many producers these days focus on the live elements of dubstep: loudness, harshness, tendency to incite mosh pits. While that’s all well and good for the average producer looking to just get booked for shows, that tendency toward complacency has caused dubstep production to stagnate a little bit. Enter Oolacile.

Hailing directly from the US, Oolacile is making his mark on dubstep by crafting wildly inventive and crazy experimental sounds that would make a priest shit his pants. The EP has a consistent uniting sound, that computerized blip that you’ll hear throughout tracks like “Human Experience” and “Signal.”

The beauty of it all is that it doesn’t get boring at all, even after four tracks that sound admittedly rather similar to each other. The subtleties in production keep each track fresh and vibrant, and that’s why Oolacile is going to be a force to be reckoned with.

Check out his debut EP on Disciple, Humanity, below:
