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.

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

Insomniac Proves Bass Music Isn’t Going Anywhere [Event Review]

This post was originally published on this site

On August 18th, Exchange LA was home to one of the better bass-music shows I’ve seen in recent memory, courtesy of Insomniac’s Bassrush off-shoot. The last Insomniac event I found myself at was Countdown NYE so I knew they were capable of throwing a top-tier dubstep show, and this was no exception. PhaseOneJackal, and the legendary SMOG head 12th Planet were gracing the decks, relentlessly dropping banger after banger in what was a near-flawless event.

The only downside to the night was the Exchange employees’ organization at the front door when I got there. Venue employees and security kept moving people waiting in the VIP lines, messing up the order as people tried to rush to the front of the new line. I ended up missing PhaseOne’s set because of this, but chatter in the crowd unsurprisingly suggested he threw down hard.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I walked inside, as this was my first time at Exchange, or any LA nightclub really. I got in right at the start of 12th Planet’s set, and was a bit surprised to find that there was an entire second floor that held the main stage and the best L.E.D. backdrop I’ve ever seen in an indoor club venue. bassrush

My picture doesn’t really do it justice; it seriously outdid some festival visuals I’ve seen, providing the perfect accompaniment to the filthy music being played. 12th Planet dropped a set chock-full of that heavy SMOG-sound he’s so finely curated over the years. He played all the classics along with the new up-and-comer releases, maintaining energy in the crowd the entire time. Jackal took over for the last set of the night, holding nothing back for the many that decided to stay after 12th Planet. He played an aggressive mix of trap, bass house, and dubstep, satisfying nearly all spectrums of bass-heads in attendance.

As if anyone didn’t know already, Insomniac can really throw a party. They’ve developed an almost cult-following with Bassrush, as they book only the best names for their shows. The lineup was brilliant and the crowd was full of life; it was a perfect combination that resulted in one hell of a show. Anyone saying “dubstep is dead” clearly hasn’t been to a Bassrush event.
