Top TITs of 2010 Part II: Top 20 Electro

7 Jan

To the countless in attendance and the millions watching at home…Ladies & Gentleman…LLLLLETS GET READY TO FIST PUMP!!!

As Dylan has been quoted since he said it, “…the times they are a changing” and his words are as true today within the modern EDM scene as they were during the folk and progressive rock eras of the late 60s. 2010 saw the success of Crookers, The Bloody Beetroots, Steve Aoki & other prevalent 2009 DJs become diluted amidst the flood of international musical talent that has busted its way into iTunes libraries and local clubs from LA to Singapore. As the underground music community blossomed, thanks in large part to modern technology, the sources of incredible sounding electronic music grew exponentially, and artists became international sensations almost over night. The days of being spoon fed a handful of decent musicians by major record labels is over, and normal people everywhere have earned their right to be famous by working hard and having innovative musical talents. As Rolling Stone puts it, “DJs are the new rockstars,” and the world of live music has been forever altered from their incredible impact. Looking forward to 2011, a year that will undoubtedly be another huge leap forward for the global music industry.

Deadmau5 & Wolfgang Gartner – Animal Rights

If you are shocked that this song is number one, kindly remove yourself from my site right meowingtons. Fuck what the chinese calendar says, 2010 was the year of the Wolfmau5, not the tiger. Im pretty sure that if Deadmau5′s music was able to transmit aids, the collective global youth would be dead by now. By witnessing him play live 5 times this year, the fifth time being exactly a year from the first, I was lucky enough to witness first hand the reasons why Joel Zimmerman has a commanding strangle hold over EDM community’s nipples. His endless knowledge and passion for the tech aspects drive him to remain that much more innovative than his opposition, both in the studio and on stage.

O ya, almost forgot about Wolfgang Gartner, a man that has been producing electronic music for so long that hes beginning to mirror yoda, in both skill status and physical looks. From the day that Joey Youngman became known as Wolfgang Gartner, the music scene became forever altered. His creative patience and overwhelming studio knowledge allow him to conceive bangers that are bursting with synthetic texture and raw power. His figity sampling style has become internationally cherished, and has spawned a new genre of production standards amongst young DJs. I also had the pleasure of seeing him perform live, where his hands did not leave the knobs of his mixer for close to 3 hours.

So, weve got these two retartedly talented DJs and producers, each with their own distinct sound that is currently breaking the necks of countless music fans over the globe, how can life get better?….BY FUSING THEM! Whoever came up with the idea that these two should produce a song together is smarter than einstein. Besides how incredibly absurd the song is as a whole, my favourite part of Animal Rights is the clear distinction you can hear between the aspects of the song produced by Deadmau5 and those produced by Wolfgang. Rather than trying to brainstorm ways to complement each other, they decided to just stick to what each of them does best and put it together. The merger of Wolfgangs microsampled high tones behind Deadmau5s synth-glitched basslines are more in tune that the relationship peanut better shares with jam.

Let us all pray for a Wolfmau5 tour in the near future (alongside Justice & Daft Punk)

Afrojack – Replica

Honestly, I dont even know where to start explaining how much I love Afrojack. The fact that I cant personally thank him for all he has done to ignite my passion for electronic music, pains me every time I listen to his tracks. The signature sound that he has developed for himself is unmatched and can be easily identified within seconds of listening to it from the throbbing erections it produces. If there is one DJ that can erupt a crowd murdered with douchebags and sluts, its the afro man. It was a struggle to pick this song over all his others as the one to post, for adding the others would just fill the list with Afro and not give the rest of the world a chance. After his sets at Ultra, Bonnaroo and almost every other major festival this summer, the world became infatuated with the Dutchman and haven’t lost their zeal since. Look for this mans already incredible reputation, to elevate to a legendary status within the next few years.

Porter Robinson – Say My Name

Its amazing how musically mature Porter Robinsons has become over the course of 2010, given that fact that he just graduated high school. At the ripe age of 18, this North Carolina native has has etched his tracks into the set lists of countless DJs across the globe. He claims that his biggest influence musically is Wolfgang, and it shows. Porters tracks are always heavy hitters that are drenched in original microsamples and bass, and evoke that signature holy fuck feeling after the first decible. Say My Name became an instant anthem after its release, and sits alongside Venga, Less Go! & Im On Fire, in Porters relentless arsenal of electric doom.

Wolfgang Gartner – Illmerica (Original Mix)

From padewon at #3, we now move to jedi master at #4. The incredible evolution of Wolfgang’s music over the entire decade is a testament to the unimaginable depth of studio production skill that he possesses. Wolfgangs talents have allowed him to create some of the most explosive and high tempo’ed music that the world has ever felt, which is even more impressive considering the fact that he has only focused his attention to tech/house production in the last 3 years. When DJ mag released their top 100 DJs of 2010 list, I was shocked to find Wolfgang all the way down at #70, with DJs like Martin Solveig & Paul Oakenfeld light years a head of him in the rankings. It was really shameful to see him placed that low, considering the amount tracks he has made that have donkeypunched Beatports Top Ten charts since 2007. When Illmerica dropped on October 5th, im pretty sure a collective HOLY FUCK was simultaneously shouted and tweeted by every EDM lover on the globe. Since then, I have heard it at almost every live DJ set ive attended to this day, and can honestly say that the reaction of the crowd when it is dropped will never get old.

Fatboy Slim – Weapon Of Choice (Lazy Rich Remix)

One of my favourite up and coming artists of the year would have to be Lazy Rich. 2010 saw the forging of an alliance between Porter Robinson, Spencer & Hill and Lazy Rich; a trinity that is sure to be molesting charts and minds for the next foreseeable future. Each of these three aforementioned DJs have developed a similar montra when producing music, one that leans heavily on extensively complex builds and high energy sampling and basslines. This remix of the hugely popular Weapon of Choice, originally by Fatboy Slim, follows suit and delivers on every tasteful front. Named amongst Beatports top 10 electro tracks of the year, this banger gives the original a facelift from hell by injecting it with a syringe packed with enough awsomesawce to harm a fully grown elk.

#6

Avicii – My Feelings for You

I find it funny that Deadmau5 played multiple times over the year in Toronto and the single Avicii show is the one to make headlines. Tim Berg has definitely come along way from mixing Commodore 64 games in his bedroom 2 years ago, as 2010 saw him working shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, John Dahlback & Tiesto. Upon the release of My Feelings for You, I think its safe to say that most people fell in love with Avicii, and it didn’t hurt that his bootleg of Seek Bromance was retarted either. As for everyone like me who new years was ruined, I have no doubt that Mr. Berg & Mr. Morrison will deliver us the redemption that we deserve.

Swedish House Mafia – One (Congorock Remix)

Im pretty sure this picture speaks much more profoundly than anything I can sum up about Congorock’s career as a DJ using words. End of story.

Martin Solveig & Dragonette – Hello (Sidney Samson Remix)

Its been a fantastic year for the Torontonian trio of Martina Sorbara, Dan Kurtz & Joel Stouffer, as their band Dragonette has garnered much acclaim over the course of the year. So much so, that they were scouted by the likes of Martin Solveig, Kaskade & Don Diablo for collaborative help, with each resulting track being just as yummy as the next. Hello, in my opinion, was THE most addictive electro song of the year and gained extreme popularity following the huge remixes that were released by Sidney Samson, Michael Woods & Dada Life. Each version of the track is unreal, but I chose to post the Sidney Samson remix as it gave me the most triumphant boner out of the 3.

Skrillex – Rock N’ Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain)

Ive you have been a die hard Worst Guy follower, you must already be well versed in the overt respect and adoration that this site has for Sonny Moore. 2010 has seen Skrillex emerge into superstardom almost overnight, as he was signed to Mau5trap records, opened for Deadmau5 on his tour and conquer almost every spot on Beatports Top Ten following the release of his Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites EP. The beauty of his production style is that it cannot be defined to one singular genre label. Rock N Roll is a clusterfuck of noise, that incorporates various elements of Dubstep, Electro, Glitch and House production into 4 minutes and 44 seconds of sheer bliss.

Alex Metric vs. Steve Angello – Open Your Eyes (Original Mix)

This first time I heard this gem was a few months ago at Electric Zoo; a DJ powered music festival centered at Randall’s Island in New York. It was the first morning and I arrived at the festival completely alone. Unsure of my surroundings I decided to grab a couple of bottles of Bud light to keep me company. 10 minutes later I found myself in the middle of a mid day set powered by the international sensation Gareth Emery, a man known for his exceptionally well rounded sets. As the he dropped Open Your Eyes, I was honestly so overwhelmed with euphoria that I turned to the stranger next to me and told him that I hope this is what it sounds like when I enter heaven. He looked over at me and immediately started laughing, yelling to me that he had been thinking the exact same thing. He introduced me to his friends, who had joined him in coming up all the way from Miami, and we all proceeded to go insane for the entirety of this fantastic song, and the rest of the sets I joined them for that day. The rest of the indescribable insanity I experienced that weekend will forever be attributed to the production magic of Alex Metric & Steve Angello.

#11

Clockwork – Airflow (Valerna Remix)

Valerna hit an absolute home run with this track. The snare line build that drives the intro of the track into the first drop is unreal, and sets the tone for the remaining 5 minutes of a track that is overflowing in energy and noise. If you are a little saucy and need a song to just fucking give’r to, this is definitely the one to blast.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#12

Erol Alkan & Boys Noize – Lemonade

For all of you out there who have yet to see the German phenom known as Boys Noize spin live, amend this, for failure to do so will result in a major void in your life experience. To put it bluntly, Alexander Ridha is unstoppable. Since establishing his record label in 2005, Boys Noize has cemented his reputation as an elite producer and DJ in the minds of countless fans across the globe. Lemonade, a collaboration track released by him and Erol Alkan at WMC in Miami earlier this year, took the EDM world by storm. That distorted synth line became one of the most recognizable sounds of the year and has been catalyzing dance floors and festivals everywhere since its initial drop.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#13

Dan Black feat. Kid Cudi – Symphonies (Dada Life Remix)

I dont think I will ever forget the first time I dropped this track. It was around late february of last year, and I had just started DJing at a local club in Jerusalem with a friend of mine. I had downloaded a bunch of Dada Life songs that week and hadn’t really had a chance to listen to them thoroughly enough to appreciate them yet. I was about half way through my set on a warm wednesday night when a cute girl came to the booth and requested that I play Symphonies by Dan Black & Kid Cudi. Naturally I obliged, seeing as both her and the request were a welcome change from all the fat stupid bitches that had been hollering at me to play Lady Gaga the entire night. By accident, I put on the Dada life remix and once I realized my mistake the song had already started and it was too late to switch. The crowd and I shared the same blind anticipation as the song began to build, and thankfully, as the beat dropped everyone erupted into a fit of ludicrous rage. Watching the club get showered in alcohol and limbs over the duration that this track was playing, was one of the single greatest moments of my life.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#14

Spencer & Hill – Dub Disco (Lucky Date Remix)

I think ive already talked enough about Spencer & Hill, a production team that sits neck and neck with the likes of Porter, Skrillex, Avicii & Lazy Rich as the rookies of the year for 2010. This remix of Dub Disco by Lucky Date is obscene, and made me foam at the mouth the first time I heard it. If you ever find yourself in a situation where your in a Lambo, racing Michael Schumacher to the fountain of youth, you should prob pop this track on during the homestretch.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#15

Chrizz Luvly – Moving Up (Original Mix)

Huge douche + fantastic music = Chrizz Luvly.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#16

Devin Martin – Zombie Robot

In my eyes, Devin Martin is currently one of the most talented unknown artists in the EDM scene. What this guy has been able to produce from his bedroom in Orlando is simply breathtaking. Zombie Robot has the feel of a track that has been carefully collaborated by veteran production hands, as it is drenched in originality and texture. There are few producers than can properly evoke an eerie zombie feeling so well through an electro track, and have it pop and dismantle eardrums as well as it does. I cant wait to interview Devin and pick his mind, so that we can all understand what the fuck is going on in Florida that we dont know about.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#17

Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand (Fare Soldi Remix)

Im guessing most of you are shocked that this song was placed so low on the list. Well, the reason is simply that as big as this song got, it was not the best song of the year. Dont get me wrong, the track is unreal and Duck Sauce are incredibly talented, but the other songs the supersede this one were indeed better than this one, regardless of how much more popular Barbera Streisand is within general society. Also, I found the remixes of this track to more often than not be better than the original, with this one by Fare Soldi doing the original the most justice.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#18

Geht’s Noch? – Body Jack (Original Mix)

Definitely the winner of The Worst Guy’s coveted, “Who The Fuck Are You & Where Did You Come From?” award for 2010. These guys are so unknown that even their name doesn’t make sense. But wow, do they ever know how to put together a sensational track. After hearing the intro the first few times it ran through my playlists I was a bit confused, and more often than not changed the song well before the first build starts to get good. Thankfully at a subsequent pre drink that followed, the song was able to be appreciated in full length, whereby everyone in the room who heard it erupted into furious, drunken wall punching fiesta.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#19

FTampa – Who I Am (Original Mix)

Again, If you are a frequent follower of this website, you will know that I have taken a keen interest into a handfull of DJs and producers to recently emerge from Brazil. So far, the one who has mainly stolen my affection has been Felipe Tampa. I just finished up an interview with the young brazilian Electro-house producer, and will let you get to know him better when I post it later this week. For now, just listen to his track Who I Am, it will explain everything for you in sounds that are easy to understand. Look out for this kid in 2011.

—————————————————————————————————————————

#20

Valerna – Look Ma, No Pants! (Felix Cartal Edit)

Rounding off the top twenty, we have a song that somehow captures what it would sound like if Optomus Prime went down on Megan Fox. I had never followed Felix Cartal that closely, but upon hearing this track I ran to my computer and downloaded anything and everything that had his name on it.


Indubitably Dubstep Vol. VII

6 Jan

To my loyal Dub-Minions,

I have returned from the warmth of the south, kicking and screaming all the way back to the frozen tundra I call my home. It has been a while since I have seen all that strange, flaky white substance falling from the sky, but after one glimpse of the madness approaching Southwestern Ontario over the next few months, I think I made a good decision to get my ass back in that parka. I don’t mind though, seeing how so many DJ’s will be coming to melt the snow [and faces] off everyone with half a brain who bought tickets already. 2011 is really starting off with a bang, as there are loads of albums awaiting to be dropped, like Nero’s new album set to be released in the coming month, as well as a slew of sweat-drenched nights in clubs all over the country.

While cruisin’ the south on vacation these past couple weeks, it became painstakingly apparent to me that clubs would rather play the same old garbage night in and night out, sticking to the same boring Top 40 bullshit that people like Ke$ha, Taio Cruz and Justin Beiber have shat on and called ‘home’. Occasionally I would hear a Deadmau5 track (usually the classic, but overplayed ‘Ghosts N Stuff’) or Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP’s ‘We Speak No Americano’ but beyond that people seem to be stuck in a Billboard coma. At about the 5th rendition of B.E.P’s ‘Dirty Bit’ one night, I decided that enough was enough and ventured over to the DJ booth where I began to plead to the DJ to throw on some Dubstep in order to save his and everyone in the club’s souls. He turned to me and said “I can only play music that will make people wanna dance”. He was wrong on so many levels. For one, there were maybe 10 people on the dancefloor, 6 of which looked like they were just waiting for the YMCA song to come on, the others just casually nodding their heads along to what I think was Miley Cyrus’ ‘Party in the U.S.A’. Secondly, how could he even think that by throwing on some down right dirty basslines and heavy drum beats would make people do less dancing than what was already going on? Too enraged to argue any further, I stormed out of the club and ran as quickly as I could to my laptop for some much needed Dubstep-medication. For all of you who have gone through the similar pains as I have, I feel for you and urge you to listen to these filthy tracks if you are in need of some serious earhole treatment. Oh, and I DARE you not to dance dirty to these gems.

Signed Sincerely, Dr. Robotnix

Top TITS Of Twenty Ten Part I: Top Ten Albums

31 Dec

OH MY LORD THE MOST GLORIOUS TIME OF MUSICAL LUSCIOUSNESS IS FINALLY UPON US!

Hurrpies and Gentlederps, it is with the utmost pride and sincerity that I present to you the first segment of The Worst Guy’s top yummys of what has been a spectacular year in everything except mainstream music. 2010 has seen an extreme surge of attention directed towards the EDM community and the underground indie/alternative music scenes. DJs have turned into international gods in mere seconds, and technological advancements to small time producers and bands has sparked a shitsmere of artists emerging from the confines of their bedrooms with extremely unique sounds. The hottest girls started listening to dubstep, and 17 year old DJs produced tracks that engrained themselves into mixes and sets across the globe. Events like Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Bonnaroo, Coachella & Glastonbury were overflowing in talent and attendance, while countless other smaller festivals began popping up faster than kirstie alley’s hemorrhoids.

Concurrently, the mainstream american music market was forced to sell its pride and finally kneel down and slurp some Canadian schlang in order to generate revenue. Who woulda guessed a little shit from stratford and a jewish rapper who played a cripple could life-fuck every girl and child in the US. While all the while sites like Hype Machine and Grooveshark took a firm grasp over the underground music scene’s balls and put all the power of authority back into the listeners hands, where it should be. Artists from around the world were able to gain popularity outside their home towns as the internet pushed the music industry into a whole new stratosphere.

With all this new talent, it was very difficult for us here at TheWorstGuy.com to consolidate all of our favourite songs into a single post. So it dawned on us to shower our loving readers with a week of voluptuous joy, spreading our favourite TITs of each genre across several posts so that each may be garnished with the full fondling that it deserves!

We begin today with our top ten albums of 2010, which has probably been the most difficult to narrow down. With so many new artists in varying genres garnishing incredible accolade over the year, its tough to make a top ten list that satisfies the opinions of the mass music community. After much debate and bickering, this is what we came up with.

– Signed Sincerely, The Worst Guy

Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

When checking the top album posts from other music sites, ive noticed a tendency to count down from bottom to top and save the best albums for last. I say FUCK THAT, as the best album deserves to be mentioned first and foremost and this album has most definitely earned that right. Its actually quite scary how incredibly talented Kanye has become in the studio, devoid of how retarded he is in day to day society. His antics remind me of one of those outgoing stacked girls in your grade 12 science class that get straight As but have absolutely no common sense. Personality aside, Mr. West has birthed an album that has grabbed every music fan by the taint, and given Yeezy another shimmering masterpiece to mount on his wall. Whether your having fantastic sex, running a triathalon, knitting, commiting arson or taking a nice shit, theres a song on the album that can easily cater to the desired occasion.

CAN WE GET MUCH HIGHER?!

Deadmau5 – 4×4 = 12

Holy fucknuts, where to even begin describing the sheer animality that I experience every time the tracks from this album explode out of my speakers. Fuck all you mau5haters and posers out there, the king of Niagra shall forever reign atop his throne of insanity. From the first kick of Animal Rights to the last synth in Some Chords, this album delves you deep through the depths of the electronic playground that is Joel Zimmermans mind and shits you right out the other side. The icing on the cake is the final song on the album, aptly named 4×4=12, as it consists of a 1 hour DJ set provided by the Mau5 himself, alolwing his fans to hear the album as he intended them to hear it; mixed and mastered by his hand. Combined with a hauntingly seizuretastic live performance, the one known as Deadmau5 pretty much curb-stomped 2010.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#3

Vampire Weekend – Contra

If your are ever in a shit mood and put this album on and dont feel better after, your a sociopath. This album took everyones mental picture of “I wish I was on a beach right now” and somehow materialized it through music. Every song is more upbeat than a cheerleader on speed, and matched with a vocalist that sounds as if he robbed Paul Simons soul, you have a sound that people develop a insane craving for. I was lucky enough to see them play live this summer, where they somehow sounded infinitely better than on the album. Combined with their mastery of modern production technology during their live sets, puts them in the bullpen with the likes of Miike Snow, while their vocals keep them that much better than the rest. Cant wait for the next album.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#4

Sleigh Bells – Treats

After the first decible I heard of Tell ‘Em, I became instantly hooked on Sleigh Bells. The noise-pop music duo of Derek Miller & Alexis Krauss have been pioneering an extremely unique and well textured sound that has flooded the indie music community. 2010 has marked a year overrun by emerging female vocalists, marrying their vocal talents to creative underground producers instead of mainstream trash. In this case, Millers production versatility shines beautifully through every chorus and verse accompanied by Krauss, and the resulting music is synthfully sublime.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

#5

Big Boi – Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

I think after the first scene of this seasons Entourage (as garbage as it ended up), me and my friends collectively shat our pants. For the song picked to open episode one of season 7 was Shutterbugg, a track that tattoos itself to your brain immediately following its first listening to. The very same song that blasted its way through everyones cars speakers since the moment it was leaked off the album. Damn has Big Boi honed his craft and shown us a whole new side of his personality and talent. His flow is sensational, and the signature style that has kept him on iconic levels since the Outkast days shines thru on every track. Let this be evidence to force those that believe hip hop is dead to think twice, as maybe its you critics that have become dead to the idea that the genre is alive and well, constantly evolving and improving itself while thriving on the influences of its roots.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#6

The Gorillaz – Plastic Beach

2010 for me marked the end to a 6 year void that has eaten away at me since the release of Demon Days by the Gorillaz back in 2004. Like many in this world, I find falling asleep troublesome at times and more often than not turn to music to fuel my dreams. Its a long process to find that one specific sound or genre that allows you to properly relax and detach from the world. Since Demon Days my sleep playlist has been thirsting for more Gorillaz, only to be quenched in 2010 following the release of Plastic Beach. The level of slumber I have reached after first listening to On Melancholy Hill has yet to be topped, with the rest of the album following suit; overflowing with tracks that unwind the body and remove the mind.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#7

Two Door Cinema Club – Tourist History

I honestly did not know these guys were Irish until I saw them live, as from their music the only thing that can really be assumed is that they’re incredibly talented musicians. Like Vampire Weekend, the trio of Sam Halliday, Alex Trimble & Kevin Baird have found insane success through the magic of music blogs and Hype Machine, and quickly found themselves on countless iTunes libraries across the globe. Their sound is somewhat of a cluster fuck of several 21st century indie and alternative bands, and the resulting music is catchy as sin. If this is the direction alternative and pop groups are heading towards, 2011 is going to be a fantastical year.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#8

Flying Lotus – Cosmogramma

Every once in a while an artist emerges that introduces a intensely unique and individual sound to the music industry, leaving most in awe while the rest scratch their heads. The music usually involves a hybridization of one or many genres, with production qualities that complement specific sounds of each influence together in a manner befitting some sort of structure. Flying Lotus took a different approach, morphing elements of genres that dont typically sound natural together; creating an incredibly off tempoed and heavily textured sound. In order to truly enjoy this album for what it is, you must force yourself to throw contemporary musical conventions down the shitter and allow yourself to blindly enter a musical world that isn’t really meant to be fully understood. I think as time goes on this album will gain much wider acceptance and accolade, forcing a much more riotous anticipation for the subsequent Flying Lotus albums to follow.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#9

LCD Soundsystem – This Is Happening

Cue the future grammy winner for alternative music album of the year. James Murphy has come a long way from the days that Daft Punk were playing at his house; a musical journey that has led him to the top of the Billboard charts. Murphy labels this album as “…much better than his previous other two,” a statement that humbly describes the tracks that make up the playlist, one reeking of originality and electronic soul. Im pretty sure the chilean miners even know all the words to I Can Change.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#10

Rusko – O.M.G.!

Your damn right i put this album in the top ten you fucking haters you, as dubstep is here to stay and has become a key addition to a well balanced musical diet. The cockney thug rubbed out another tantalizing helping of synthesized madness this year, with the majority of the tracks released skyrocketing to the top of both the corporate and underground music charts. “Wake The Fuck Up” became the unofficial motto amongst festival goers, as dubstep tents and events across the globe attracted more and more caos. Rusko also learnt to add female vocals to his music, a move that has become somewhat of a necessity following the success that other artists, like Deadmau5 and Bassnectar, had when employing the same technique. Amber Coffman could be uglier than quasi modo and it really wouldn’t matter, her vocals in Hold On are so damn sexy they make my eyes rain and pretty much turn my spine into goo. One of my favourite things to see is when a mainstreamer listens to Rusko for the first time and a curious smirk sneaks across their face, as it reminds me how much bigger this genre and this artists are going to be in the upcoming years.

Stay tuned for more Top TITs of 2010 coming up all thru this week!

The TITS Week 13

23 Dec

To My Fellow Bra-Snappers,

The joys and sorrows of first semester have passed, and if your’re like me 2011 will mark a much needed fresh start in more areas than one. Yea we all make new years resolutions, but aside from the resilient few among us that actually keep them, the only pleasure this time of year offers us normies is the promise of incredible parties, fantastic food and maybe a sweet champagne induced kiss from a beautiful girl as the clock strikes twelve. This year the crew here at TheWorstGuy.com offer you one more holiday treat, as next weeks rendition of the TITS will mark our “Best Of” 2010 round up, showcasing our most vulumptuous and boner popping offerings from the entire year, spanning the Dubstep, Electro-house, Indie & Hip-Hop genres. Incase your retarded, and were not aware of the ridiculous amount of sensational music created this year, you best mark down next thursday in blood. Heres is the last slew of bangers for 2010 before next weeks juggernaut. SLURP AWAY!

– Signed Sincerely, The Worst Guy

28 Nov

Another week has passed, mother nature is turning into the cold bitch she normally becomes, the sun basically calls it quits at like 2pm and school decides to shove its fist just a little deeper up our asses….singing ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ seems a tad ironic, doesn’t it? At least this week you can count on some really fucking great tunes to take your mind off of Hell freezing over.

Bassnectar

Doesn’t it seem like Bassnectar always finds his way onto this site? Is it pointless to keep posting new tracks of his every other day? Shouldn’t I just wait for a bunch of new tracks to get released then put them all on one huge Bassnectar post? Shouldn’t everyone who agrees with me find a tall building and jump off it head first?

Nero

I don’t think you need psychic powers to realize that 2011 will be the year of Nero. Set to release their first dubstep album early next year, Nero has been going on a tear recently seeing their songs skyrocket to the top of HypeMachine, and Beatport, and also had one of the best mix’s of the year on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix early November. Their remix of Calvin Harris’ gemstone ‘You Used to Hold Me’ isn’t a super heavy song, but in laying off on the epic beat drops, they created a non-stop dancer from start to finish.

Sekklow

K, so if you are guys are looking at this and going, “Who the fuck is Sekklow???” you’re not alone. Before hearing this song I probably would’ve told you Sekklow is some sort of European-brand prophylactic. Well I would’ve been half right at least; Sekklow is a Drum and Bass, Dubstep, Electronica DJ hailing from London, UK. He is basically a very low profile DJ (his Myspace page has a bit over 20000 views and around 170 friends) with tons of talent. If his resume consisted of this song only, I would hire him for any job available, regardless of its affiliation with music. I hope to hear more from this unheralded beast very very soon.

Doctor P

Another Dubstepper from the UK, albeit much more famous than Sekklow, Doctor P remains one of the premier DJ’s who have really yet to disappoint on basically everything he’s done. He has lend his hand to so many different DJ’s, and in 2009 he and good friend Flux Pavilion created Circus Records, signing major DJ’s like Cookie Monsta and Brown & Gammon. This song sounds like a video game freezing, then subsequently exploding in 8-bit harmony. Remember to always blow the bottom of the game before jammin it in!

Prime

I am so excited for all of you to listen to this next track. Prime somehow snuck into my dreams Inception style, killed some evil dream dudes and stole one of my ultimate dreams and made it into a reality. I probably wouldn’t be exaggerating when I say that at some point in time everyone was singing this song. It was so geniously catchy and obscene that I’m pretty sure my elementary school banned people from singing that song on school property. But don’t feel bad, my school tried to ban Halloween too. Assholes. Time for some revenge.

Extra Childhood-Memory Redub!

Glass Animals


I don’t know much on Glass Animals (this was the only pic I could find….I don’t even know whats going on up there) all I know is he/she/they/it can make one hell of a sick dubstep track. The beatdrop uses some serious synth and bass, and the vocal effects lend a eerie kind of tone throughout the entire song. Definitely a must-grab.

At Dawn We Rage

I love getting new remixes of Deadmua5. Whether its dubstep, trance, DnB, Deadmau5 just seems to create ideal music for genre-bending. I think this is where electro music is heading, to a more unified, genre-less domain led by the likes of Deadmau5, Skrillex, Porter Robinson, etc. One half of At Dawn We Rage is DJ-producer LightsoverLA, so you know you can expect big things from this track. Oh btw, Mau5 man himself will be coming to Toronto for Boxing Day. Make sure to get your ass out of Wal-Mart and into a serious party.

The TITS Week 8

18 Nov

Dear TITS lovers,

I would like to solemnly apologize for the tardiness on this weeks rendition of your favourite slew of breast related bangers. The mid-term and essay monsters have had a tight bind over my uvula lately, and as such I have been in-able to dish out your weekly fix on time. However, this week has also been an extremely positive one for the site, as Josh Nightingale has now been officially added as a co-writer and administrator for the site under his new alias “Dr. Robotnix” and as such, the site will now be constantly filled with an epipen’s worth of adrenalined fueled mayhem. Also, we have begun working in collaboration with a local UWO website, http://www.lionsdenu.com, and through them will hopefully be able to grow our small site into a legitimate contender in this hipster infested social media world of music blogs.

Anyhoo…..fuck the limitless potential of the site, lets get down to the nipply business at hand.

Finally someone has sampled this incredibly nostalgic song, that we all have come to use in a pun and or euphemism at some point in our lives. Luckily, Gary Caos was able to do the song justice and at a healthy 6 minutes & 34 seconds, he has birthed a beautiful banger baby. His cut in the middle of the song to the original recording is a wonderful touch.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

If ecstasy and mdma had to pick a favourite DJ, it would 100% be Avicii. The man has developed the innate ability to lift his listeners so much higher than even peter pan can fathom. His use of xylophone-esque tones during his builds matched with his uncanny ability to find the most orgasmic female vocalists, allows him to pump out victory after victory in the house music charts. The other day this song came on when I was at home and it put me in such a euphoric mood that I started finger-painting pictures of rainbows and cabbage patch kids.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

In my opinion this song should be sent back in time and inserted as the background track for every assembly line scene, in each Terminator movie made.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The man is unstoppable. The uniquely dutch sound we have all come to love emulates in full catastrophic effect in this new unreleased track. I dare you to listen to this song and refrain from masturbating. The overwhelming rage induced coma that Afro perpetuates through his music is fucking absurd. His signature use of high pitched tones and distorted drum cadences for builds, has become the background track to countless music lovers’ alcohol powered hysteria for some time now. Heres hoping that it never ends.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

This track is not unlike anything ive heard before, but theres something unique about it I cant seem to put my dick on. Its structure is similar to that of any other acceptable electro banger, but its samples and tracks seem to be alittle unconventional. Its as if Chocolate Puma kidnapped a mariachi band off the streets of Mexico city and jammed their essence into their mixer. The song itself is decent, but that one prominent horn track has been lingering in my loins for close to two days now.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Heres another new track from that post-mortem rodent who continues to fill our ears with goodies. The best place to drop this track: DJing that crazy sweaty rave in The Matrix 2.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Never thought you would be hearing Boy George on a blog like this? Guess again, punk. True we haven’t heard much from the androgynous star since his rise to fame with Culture Club in the 1980’s, however Grammy winner Mark Ronson skillfully uses Boy George’s talents in his new track, and with Congorock on the remix, this song is sure to keep the dance floor shaking.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Ibiza giant Roger Sanchez is in the process of releasing a new album on his own record label. He also just recently did an interview for the L.A. based EDM blog Gotta Dance Dirty (I recommend you have a read through) which is sure to boost his publicity. This song will hook you immediately with its sample of a very famous B-52’s song (shouldn’t be too hard to guess which one) and a collaboration with up & coming rap stars Far East Movement. Add Sidney Samson to the remix, and you have got one hell of a song. If this was released at the beginning of the summer, it would have been an instant summer classic but now it will just have to keep us warm through the winter.
