Right in time for Christmas and New Years Eve, Canadian dubstep duo Zeds Dead have unleashed a colossal ‘Holiday Mix,’ jam-packed with their own originals and favorite cuts from the year. In the same fashion as their live show, Zeds Dead run through tracks at a blistering pace, covering 29 tracks of electro house, drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep and more in just 50 minutes. Aside from their heavier, well-known dubstep originals, Zeds Dead showcase their penchant for lesser-played genres such as tribal dance, trap and reggae. On the whole, ‘Holiday Mix’ is a lesson in creative, risky mixing, which, when done correctly, can be infinitely more entertaining than standard kick-snare outro transitions. Big ups to Zeds Dead on this mix. Click past the break for the full tracklist and free download.
Anyone who has seen Adventure Club live knows that their taste in electronic music goes beyond their penchant for melodic dubstep — the Montreal duo have an affinity for the entire spectrum of beautiful bass music. Releasing their first ever published mixtape, Adventure Club stay true to this idea, sculpting a thirty minute mix of delightful dubstep, trap, downtempo, and deep house for Life in Color (formerly known as Dayglow). With tracks from Flinch, TNGHT, Flume, Duke Dumont, and Disclosure, this is one of the most eclectic mixtapes we’ve heard in a while. In typical Adventure Club fashion, the mixtape is available for free download from their SoundCloud. Click past the break for the full tracklist and download.
Upon joining Major Lazer, Walshy Fire has lent both his MC’ing and DJ’ing abilities to the versatile project. Teaming up with reggae adept Chronixx, the two have released “Start a Fyah Mixtape” under the official Major Lazer heading. The mixtape is strictly dancehall/reggae, with Chronixx providing continuous verbal output. While we gave a glimpse into Jamaica’s dancehall phenomenon with Diplo‘s Kingston diaries, “Start a Fyah Mixtape” is further education into the flourishing dancehall culture. The mellow, dub-driven mix is available for free download below.
In a playful stab at the nominal wordplay of Deadmau5, Knife Party have entitled their new mix ‘Clever Title Like Deadmau5 Would Use.’ Ripe with Rage Valley EP singles and Knife Party VIPs such as “Rage Valley VIP” and “Internet Friends VIP,” this mix is brimming with heavy original material. Aside from their own productions, Knife Party include thumping minimal selections such as Jewelz & Scott Sparks’ “Toxic Rush” and Alvaro’s “Pay Attention to the Drums.”
This mix is as technical as it is menacing. Quick, risky transitions give it a human element, conspicuously absent from most modern mixtapes. Impressive double drops such as Tom Staar’s remix of “African Drop” with Knife Party’s remix of “Save the World” will have you double-taking. Knife Party’s prowess is ever evident. Full tracklist after the break.
Pop the champagne and peel the bananas – Dada Life is back with the July installment of its monthly mixtape. The Swedish duo kicks the set off with the Otto Knows remix of their own “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker” and dives straight into massive electro jams like Dyro and Ansol’s “Top of The World” and Hard Rock Sofa and Swanky Tunes’ “Here We Go.” From there, Dada Life gives us a hint of funk by dropping Wolfgang Gartner’s “Flexx” but brings us right back to the hard-hitting electro with a very appropriate mashup of Knife Party’s “Rage Valley” and the Beastie Boys’ party-themed “Fight For Your Right.” Download the mix for free and be sure to check out our exclusive Behind The Booth with Stefan and Olle for even more Dada.

Even though we haven’t seen any major releases from him in the past month, we know our favorite Aussie has been hard at work in the studio. Tommy Trash is back with the May installment of his monthly mixtape, filled with his signature blend of hard-hitting electro and big house synths. This impeccably-mixed 14 track, hour-long mix features everything from Congorock’s electrified “Agarta” to Dirty South’s bigroom synth remix of “Devil’s Work.”
Tommy also incorporates recent popular tracks like “Atom” and “Shotgun,” before wrapping things up by digging into his crates for MSTRKRFT’s unique, rock-inspired remix of “Woman.” While he brought back past favorites like his remixes of “After” and “Antidote” — and even a refreshingly new mashup of older hits “Unite Us” and “Kids” — we have to say we were hoping for a glimpse at the new stuff, specifically his remix of Deadmau5′s “The Veldt“. As usual, follow the download link below, and check after the break for the tracklist.
After partying harder than most at Ultra, our favorite Aussie is back with the April installment of his monthly mixtape.
