Designed to keep you raging on these next few cold and lonely nights while that dastardly snow flexes its muscles, this latest mashup from the dubstep kings will no doubt help you stick it to that pestering cabin fever and will let it know exactly where to send all of its depressing woe.

I don’t remember exactly what I was doing at 17, but I’m 99.9% sure I wasn’t mixing up Grade A tracks like this latest head banger from Danny Avila. The Spanish youngster may not be old enough to (legally) set foot in a club just yet, but dear lord does he know how to produce a raging trapstep remix that is sure to get those pulses racing.
Collaborating with Generation Wild cohort Mikael Weermets on this newest endeavor, a bass-booming rendition of Skylar Grey‘s “C’mon Let Me Ride,” Avila has literally turned the original on its head and transformed it from a relatively innocuous pop jingle into a meaty, action-packed trap hit. Still maintaining Grey’s powerful vocals and general underlying melody, the Madrid native has teamed up with the Swedish DJ to add some pretty serious synth work into the mix, as well as an insanely dope drop that makes the 2012 single virtually unrecognizable. With this remarkable hit being Avila’s first release of the new year, we can’t wait to see what else he has in store for 2013.
Look for the full remix to debut on Interscope Records February 5th.Posted by
Since setting foot on the scene a year ago UK-based producer, Rogue, has gained quite the following for his energetic dubstep-electro beats. His latest release, “Adventure Time,” doesn’t stray from his signature sound and is sure to please even the occasional electro fan. The producer named the track “Adventure Time” because, when he listens to it, he “can imagine going on an epic adventure.” We’ll have to agree with that, given the track’s boppy start, melodic break and heavy bass line. The seamless transition between lighthearted synths and thumping beats makes this piece of work an easy integration into your everyday playlist. Take a listen for yourself and, if you like what you hear, head on over to Beatport to purchase the tune.

Bass music superstars Chase & Status roll back the years to their drum and bass days with their latest release. “Big Man,” which features the evocative vocals of Liam Bailey, contains sections in which clear influences from hard rock and metal are audible. Fans of the British duo’s older productions will be glad to know that a more traditional Chase & Status sound is still present in the track’s breakdown. “Big Man” is available as a free download on the Chase & Status website so head over there and grab a free copy for yourself.
Those that stayed through the first morning at EDC LV 2012 had the opportunity to see Canadian dubstep duo Adventure Club drop a great set as the sun rose. The guys have released a free remix of Alexisonfire’s track, “To A Friend,” combining their unique blend of dubstep elements and disco fragments as well. The frontman’s transcendent vocals characteristic of electronic music are a perfect interlude between the dub drops, and we applaud Adventure Land’s continuous cross pollination of rock music with dubstep. Check them out at Electric Zoo on Sunday if you’ll be there. Stream “To A Friend” and grab the download below.

Adventure Club are continuing their wonderful habit of giving away all their music for free. “Retro City” is another huge dubstep banger from the Montreal based duo. This hits a little harder and has a much sharper drop than most of their older work which has tended to feature slow, heavy bass drops. Adventure Club must be doing something right as their legion of fans continues to explode. Check out “Retro City” below and grab the free download.
We have something pretty cool for you from French dubstep/electro group, Alesia. Some of you might remember when Nero conducted a “Dubstep Symphony.” Well, we found Alesia’s latest production to be very reminiscent of that. Alesia bring us their orchestral dubstep take on a track you will all have heard a thousand times – Deadmau5′s “Strobe.” If you’re up for something that is a little different, have a listen below and grab the free download!
Look for their single “Nox” to drop later this month!Posted by
Benga is credited with being one of the driving forces behind the creation and promotion of dubstep as a musical genre, and he is an artist that we at Dancing Astronaut have immense respect for. “Pour Your Love” features the vocals of Marlene and is a wonderfully crafted example of melodic dubstep. It will be the next release off Benga’s upcoming major label debut Chapter 2 and is available to purchase on August 28th. We’re loving the sound of this and can’t wait to see what else Benga has in store for us on Chapter 2.Posted by
We brought you the preview of Jack Beats upcoming single “Careless” a week ago, and as we said then, we really enjoy the track. Their unique fidget house sound is a stand out example of some of the really cool bass driven music coming out of the UK at the moment.
The official video for “Careless” features Takura, the track’s vocalist, hooked up to some sort of IV before getting up and half walking, half stumbling down a path. His shadow gets up to all sorts of crazy things: transforming from a person, to a gorilla before ending up as a t-rex. We have no idea what the significance of this is so hopefully some of you can help us out in the comments. Look out for Jack Beats’ mini album to drop on August 7th.
