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.

H/T to DA managing editor M. Cooper for this one.

Dodge & Fuski Takes Us Back To 2009 With “Bring It Back”

So first we had Myro two weeks ago, and now we have Dodge & Fuski today, both bringing back pre-2012 dubstep vibes to modern production. What is going on!? Who cares, we fucking love it.

If you’re looking for that really quality dubstep sound without any of the Getter-esque or riddim sounds that so many up-and-comers are trying to push today, if you’re looking for something from a producer who’s been in the game for the better part of the past decade, this is the one for you.

The Disciple Records Crew Almost Didn’t Make It To Their First LA Showcase

It’s Saturday in the late afternoon and I get a call from a frantic Dodge & Fuski, “Oh man, you’ll never guess what we just had to do.”

The Disciple Records crew, currently touring with Dodge & Fuski, Astronaut, Virtual Riot, Dubloadz and Barely Alive, was scheduled to play their debut LA label showcase Saturday night before their flight out of Dallas was unexpectedly cancelled. Not ones to disappoint fans, the label paid $22,000 to rent a private jet to fly them from Dallas to Los Angeles and they made the show!

We love hearing about how much artists care about their fans, and for an indie label like Disciple, $22k is no paltry sum.
