As dubstep enters a new echelon with entire festivals dedicated to its deep, wobbling kiss of death, it’s high time to remember that dubstep arrived at the helm of the EDM explosion in the US.

Skrillex released the Kraken with Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites in 2010, just as the term “EDM” was starting to take shape. At that point, the raw, sometimes island-evocative, minimalist sound known as “riddim” didn’t boast anything near the earnest following it enjoys today. The popular dubstep in the states at the time, commonly referred to as “brostep,” was flashy and rather outlandish. It was raucous. It was huge in both form and function. And MUST DIE! was undoubtedly one of the biggest proponents of the sound, signing on with Skrillex’s OWSLA, where he produced some of the most irreverent and influential cuts of the moment, (i.e., “Gem Shards”). Though, as time went on, once the compositional visionary began regularly releasing with dubstep dominion Never Say Die records, his catalog became riddled with tracks imbuing more riddim-ready sensibilities.

On “Funeral Zone,” his latest Never Say Die release, MUST DIE! aligns himself with the sonic trends of the current dubstep epoch, employing harsh, undulating, riddim accents alongside a series of floaty mid-range synths that would, oddly enough, feel at home in a buildup by the late great Avicii. Don’t fret though, when the drop comes in there is no mistaking this is a MUST DIE! track that belongs in 2019.

Carmada and Georgi Kay captivate with ‘Lay It Down’Carmada Stacey Queffert

Australian bass duo Carmada took a multi-year hiatus, proving absence makes the heart grow fonder once they returned with hit collaboration “Embrace” alongside NGHTMRE and original release, “Ready For It.” The remixes for “Ready For It” are trickling in, including a dubstep rendition via MUST DIE!, but that isn’t stopping the duo from releasing more. They are out with their second single via Insomniac Records this year, this time in the form of catchy collaboration “Lay It Down” alongside famed electronic music collaborator Georgi Kay.

Electrifying synths build to a breaking point, giving way to future bass chords that explode, taking command of the track. Kay’s punching vocals give the chords direction as her angst ups the intensity of the track.

Super duo Carmada has released the official remix package for their latest single “Ready For It,” and Seattle-based dubstep producer MUST DIE! has tried his hand at remixing the track. MUST DIE! ascended into notoriety thanks to a feverish bass community following, and he has continued to manufacture infectious dubstep and bass hits ever since, releasing tracks on the likes of Dim Mak, OWSLA, where his Aussie counterparts also have roots, and now Insomniac Records.

MUST DIE!’s remix of “Ready For It” echoes the original, though suffice it to say the “VIPs” producer does what he does best, kicking his take on Carmada up a notch. Layering in heavy, robotic synths over the track’s drop MUST DIE! lays his transformative spin over the new track, adding another menacing remix to his already blistering catalog.

Slander and SAYMYNAME invite MUST DIE! to remix “I Can’t Escape” featuring Feli Ferraro. The original mix goes exceptionally hard, while the MUST DIE!’s remix effort exists in its own alternative bass universe. Ferraro’s voice maintains a celestial pop-inspired ambiance contrasted by a heavily percussive build and blistering hardcore bass drop. Head-bangers everywhere will be throwing their skulls below the bar on this remix. It’s a headbangers anthem designed to shake the rails at festival stages. MUST DIE! mashes together an uplifting topline and a battering break as different night and day, slashing the comforting feeling of Ferraro’s vocals with a heavy dose of violent kicks, screeching synths, and growling bass.
