Back in March, Seven Lions spoke to Dancing Astronaut about some upcoming collaborations, one of which has now been revealed as “Fevers” alongside fellow melodic dubstep champion Minnesota and vocalist Mimi Page. To no surprise, the newly released collaboration is just as entrancing and otherworldly as the trifecta of talent behind it would imply. Page’s voice feels right at home slowly careening over the enveloping, trancelike pads, while Seven Lions and Minnesota culminate the track with a titanic, emotional dubstep drop. In the realm of sonorous, amicable dubstep, Seven Lions has proved virtually untouchable.
Riding on a high after reaching 30,000 Facebook likes and releasing collaboration “NaNaNa” with fellow Dutchman Moti, Alvaro feverishly thanks his fans by giving away free download “Most Wanted.” Already raking in support from the all-mighty Tiësto during his Ultra set, the track boasts ground-shaking bass reminiscent previous productions “World in Our Hands“ and “Rock Music.” Stay tuned for his much anticipated release “Welcome to the Jungle,” while in the mean time Google image search “Alvaro Most Wanted” for some truly terrifying mug shots.Posted by
Although dBerrie just released a preview for “Malfunction,” he has been keeping busy in the studio giving his fans a free download of his latest remix. Taking Imagine Dragon’s “Radioactive,” Berrie speeds up the original indie tune and turns it into an absolutely massive track. The fluid bassline complements the emotion filed lyrics, breathing new life into the year-old track. We might even say that this remix is on par with dBerrie’s remix of “Somebody I Used to Know,” but download below and decide for yourself.Posted by
Whoever said dubstep was dead? The sea of endless flavor-of-the-week producers maybe, but the real talent in the oft-misunderstood genre is still going strong. Enter the dubstep duo Candyland & hip hop producer Clark Kent who enlist Karen Sheridan aka Slow Skies for their latest original “On The Shore.” A defiantly bass heavy affair with soaring melodic interludes driven by Sheridan’s ethereal top line, the production is an amalgamation of Candyland’s dubstep and Kent’s hip hop percussion. Even for those who shy away from the dubbier side of dance, “On The Shore” is unbiased in its appeal. Dabbling in trance chordplay blended with a steady barrage of syncopated percussion and growling bass, the pairing’s latest outing is intelligent and artistically crafted, regardless of genre preferences.Posted by
As Krewella continues along the Play Hard Tour that saw them make a surprise stop in Indiana, they show love to those unable to ditch finals to play with the Krew as well. The trio has released Troll Mix Vol. 4, “Get Ripped Or Die Trying,” as a free download, slamming 47 tracks into 60 minutes. Though Jahan and Yasmine’s vocals took the backseat in the mix, the tracklist runs the gamut of hard dance, going from trap to dubstep to progressive trance to moombathon and back again at dizzying speeds: If Sum 41, Carnage, and Armin van Buuren could coexist anywhere, it would be here. A sampler platter of Krew tastes, “Get Ripped Or Die Trying” is available for a free rip here. Full tracklist after the break.
Fun fact: dark matter makes up 25% of the mass of the universe, while easily visible (normal) matter makes up only .5%. The final portion consists of mysterious dark energy — but that’s enough astronomy for one day. Alluding to the enigmatic cosmic phenomenon of dark matter, Brown & Gammon have crafted an engrossing celestial production beaming with starry synths and a figurative “keep looking” lyric. Though the Circus Records duo are well-known for their funky dubstep originals and remixes, “Dark Matter” is something entirely different. Smooth, glossy, and brandishing a distinct disco elegance, the track is a beautiful first foray into the house world.
Seemingly overnight, versatile music producer Butch Clancy has reached nearly 100,000 Facebook fans. It’s not a testament to his social media skills, but rather evidence of his ability to appease fans of multiple genres. While he originally gained notoriety for his “downtempo dubstep” remixes to beautiful tracks like “The Funeral” and Sia’s “Breathe Me,” Clancy went on to release the full-length trap album A Beautiful Mind. Now he’s returned to his roots, providing a sentimental dubstep take on Rihanna’s “Stay.” Abounding with warm piano progression, soft kicks, and slow-rolling bass, Butch Clancy’s classy remix reasserts his prominence as a noteworthy dubstep producer.
Dillon Francis, Taco Bell-enthusiast and alleged Tiësto doppelgänger, has released his delightful moombahton remix to “Carried Away” as a free download, just as he did with his recent trap remix to Justin Timberlake’s ”Suit & Tie.“ Reworking Passion Pit’s summer anthem, Francis splices and transposes the vocals, accentuating the carefree vibe of the original with charismatic chords. The ensuing drop employs a feisty torrent of barking acid synths, and might just be one of the first (and best) well-known cases of acid moombahton. In regards to the tune, Francis remarked: “this and my suit and tie remix might be my favorites to date!”
The Disco Fries are back, this time with a genre bending track that we can’t even come close to categorizing. “Murika” starts off with a light synth infused house beat before an organ melody takes over and the track drops into a modulated vocoder sound. The track includes almost every type of genre in the game, a collection of everything that is inspiring The Disco Fries at the moment. Our description does this track no justice, you’re gonna have to listen to this one yourselves.
