Rising Dj/Producer duo Hi I’m Ghost just released a riddim banger that is definitely going to make you fall into an inevitable cycle of endless headbanging. The track is full of wonky riddim and cute little vocal shots that make it a lot of fun to listen to. It’s something that can make a crowd
Spain-based Spag Heddy has added his special ingredients to Slander‘s “Superhuman,” transforming the emotive feel of the original and wrapping it in pounding, heart-stopping drops for a balance between melodic and dark bass.
Spag Heddy’s initial rise around 2011/2012 came from consistent ingenuity and a cunning drive, which led to the gradual collection of a loyal bass following. Today, he’s known for familiar festival tunes like “Samir” and “Hide,” as well as a hefty handful of remixes, EPs, and singles dropped in the last few years. Spag Heddy continues to lay the groundwork for bass artists of the future.
Iconic dubstep duo Modestep has released their brand-new track, “Higher,” via Monstercat — showcasing their talent for the first time on the popular Canadian label. The single is the official kickoff for the forthcoming label compilation, Uncaged Volume 4. The daring UK pair also performed the single 6,500 feet above an icy ravine in New Zealand, paying homage to the track’s title.
“Higher” provides nostalgic dubstep notes mixed with smooth vocals — a perfect combination of energy that propels the track from beginning to end. The track showcases Modestep’s ability to create authentic sounds, as 2018 marks more than 10 years of touring and producing for the duo.
Ever since 2010, the dubstep and electronic band Modestep has taken over dance music. Their debut album Evolution Theory was released on February 11, 2013 including some of their top singles “Feel Good,” “Sunlight” and “Another Day.” Despite releasing their second studio album London Road back in 2015, Modestep has been relatively quiet. Earlier today,
Hip-hop meets electronic music in “Drama” by IZII and Holly featuring Nic Tapper. Tapper raps to a classic hip-hop backdrop in the intro, and as his vocals continue, a subtle build in the background releases into an elaborate electronic drop. The drop transcends genres but could perhaps best be described as a trap-dubstep fusion.
Rising star IZII has garnered the support of Diplo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Borgeous among others since his debut single, “Echo (Let Go),” in 2016. IZII enlisted newcomer Holly to co-produce the track, and their styles combined make for a unique and punchy track in “Drama.”
In May 2017, Californian producer Xan Griffin began a series of songs named for zodiac signs. Since he started with “Gemini,” he’s gone on to produce “Cancer,” “Leo,” “Virgo” and “Libra,” followed by his latest: “Scorpio.”
“Scorpio” is a transcendent, almost cinematic experience. A minute-long introduction ushers the listener into the latest zodiac installment with a simple melody that gradually builds into a bass-backed rendition of the same theme. At the halfway mark, the listener is introduced to the sweet, enticing vocals of Romy Wave. The vocalist’s heartfelt lyrics add another layer to the already emotional track, helping craft the entrancing soundscape Xan Griffin’s built.
Each zodiac release, though wildly different from the last, carries over an emotion-packed theme that ties the series together.
When Zomboy unveiled his Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1EP on Never Say Die Records, fans were treated with four skull-crushing bass tracks originally composed by Josh Mellody himself. The extended play project featured squeaky clean samples, highly rhythmic four-to-the-floor bass lines, and a noticeably strong arrangement. Now the UK-based heavy dubstep producer has released a reprise remix package that features some of the darkest and dirtiest names within commercial dub world.
Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1: Remixed features two divergent takes on each of Zomboy’s originals, including SVDDEN DEATH’s filthy rendition of “Biterz,” KATO and Gentleman’s Club’s take on Mellody’s tour anthem “Youth & Dangerous,” Doctor P’s signature sound design overlaid onto “Rotten,” and a omni-tempo bas house reimagining of “Saints & Sinners” by Habstrakt.
Last week, REZZ tweeted out that “if anyone has a problem with me playing (literally) one Bassnectar tune in my tour set, you need to drink a tea and stay calm. Okay everything is fine.” Later on she clarified by saying “It’s cause apparently his fans don’t like it when other artists play his tunes.”
With the well-received release of Zomboy’s Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1 EP over the summer, fans knew a remix package was on the table at some point; it was just a matter of who would remix what. Yesterday, Zomboy delivered an appropriately crafted remix EP, and today, we’re excited to highlight one of those remixes
The future of dubstep could very well be rooted in this record. Madhatter just combined some low end bass magic with the legendary voice of Boogie T. This is the latest release from Warpaint Records features an insane rap top-line that flows and vibes to the poppy-ish synths that then get engulfed by the Treacherous bass.
