Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor 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.

On a recent synthwave binge, I stumbled across a group by the name of Lebrock. It only took one track (“Runaway“) for me to become completely hooked, and I was thrilled to see the release of a new tune called “Takes All Night” on Aug. 8. Soak it up in all its retro glory.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Oliver Nelson and Tobtok are a dream team. Their latest piece of work together is no exception, and they add their groovy touch to Wilder Woods’ “Supply & Demand” with ease. A steady-rocking bassline and the original track’s vocals work in harmony for a blissful remix.

UK drum ‘n’ bass aficionado Kove has proven himself force to be reckoned with in 2019 with releases like “Echoes” and “BEARCLAW.” He’s returned in the heart of festival season with a new Drum&BassArena heater, “Motor,” which grinds with all the ferocity of, well, a powerful motor. It’s an epic piece of work.

Aug. 16 marks the release of HEYZ‘s first EP since his Schedule 1 compilation on mau5trap, and the three-track Human 404 is in a league of its own. Tracks like “In My Arms” clearly demonstrate a new sonic path for the producer, and it’s exciting to see. Read my Q&A with him here.

Sullivan King‘s rock-infused touch has been far-reaching in the electronic music sphere since his appearance on the scene, and he’s made a name for himself by continuously demonstrating his versatile skill set. His latest is a cover of Excision and Illenium‘s 2018 collab, “Gold,” and the musician’s vocals work flawlessly with the version he’s created.

First Listen: Kompany steps up with monstrous remix of Excision’s ‘Power’ [Stream]Kompany Rectangular Press Shot

Excision enlisted a dream team of bass music power players for his new Apex remix collection, with 12th Planet, Downlink, Spag Heddy, and more all lined up to deliver their own bone-rattling takes on Excision’s work. Kicking off the high octane action comes Kompany with the remix pack’s lead offering—a bulldozing spin on Excision’s “Power.”

Upping the ante on the original with his own menacing spin, Kompany swaps out “Power’s” distinct two-step jab for a pair of steep builds and two aggressive, elbow-throwing breaks. In short—Kompany snaps on his stomping new Excision remix, notching another profile-building remix on his growing rap sheet. The LA-based Icon Collective alum is putting together a formidable track record as one of bass music’s most exciting young talents, and his “Power” remix is just the tip of the iceberg.

Excision and Dion Timmer release collaborative ‘Breaking Through’ EP for a headbanger’s paradise

Excision and Dion Timmer release collaborative ‘Breaking Through’ EP for a headbanger’s paradiseEcision Deto Set 2018

Bass music behemoth Excision teamed up with fellow-producer Dion Timmer to finally release their collaborative EP, Breaking Through. The project is one they’ve been pushing publicly since last year. “Time Stood Still” was released to whet the appetites from the highly anticipated joint project with a more soothing melodic bass yawn.

“Breaking Through” is a proper introduction that describes sounds that are “visibly apprehended; sounds you can see.” This is certainly the case for this heavy monstrous terror, as enormous, mythological sonic beasts rampage through a high-tech overground.

“Proceed With Caution” features Shivers, and the song title shouldn’t be heaved simply as words on a page. Tantalizing bass binds the center of the track, surrounding the listener at both frequencies with utter rage. “Bones” is the final track off the extended play, and this one certainly carries that anthemic feel from the singable build to the grueling, guttural synth shots that might brake neck bones.

Braking Through follows Abel’s Apex LP released October of last year. Dion Timmer is also following from his 10-track EP, Very Extra, released in December. Timmer recently released a collaboration with Zeds Dead “Rescue” featuring Delaney Jane.
