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.

Feb 19th = Best Day of 2011

5 Jan

Dear Torontonian Porter Fans,

For all of you who did not head my warning when I originally posted the tickets for Skrillex & Nero @ The Phoenix in Toronto, LISTEN THE FUCK UP. Before it was recently cancelled, Porter Robinson was scheduled to play a concert at a small club in downtown Toronto. I had contacted the club to see why it was cancelled, and was informed that “he is just in too high of a demand right now, and was forced to reschedule.” Well, naively I believed them and was kinda confused, given the overwhelming success that his show had on halloween in Mtl.

Well, I have uncovered the true reason and am very excited to share it with you. The reason why they had to reschedule was because Porters show got too big too fast and that specific venue would not be able to hold the insanity of what a Porter concert in Toronto would inevitably be. As such, they decided to change venues, and place the 17 year old Tar-Heel in the most perfect of settings to accomodate his prowess. Yes people, Porter Robinson will now be joining Skrillex and Nero at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto on the evening of February 19th, 2011.

So, as previously mentioned, for those who do not have their tickets yet I offer you a second chance at redemption. With the addition of Porter, I can guarantee that this event will be sold out in no time.

CLICK ME FOR TICKETS

For all of you outside Toronto dont fret, he is also playing a slew of concerts across Canada & The US, including places like Edmonton, Vancouver, Calgary, Kelowna & New York. Details for these and his other events can be found here.

Ill see you all on the 19th.

Indubitably Dubstep Vol. VI

18 Dec

Dear Dubheads,

Hello once again to my faithful partners-in-Dubstep. I come again bearing my usual array of tasty treats, collected feverishly for all of you to drool over (watch the keyboard!). However, I also come with some unfortunate news. Indubitably Dubstep will be going on a short hiatus for the next couple weeks [tears] but never fear, for The Worst Guy will still be entertaining your earholes with the arrival of some very BIG surprises coming in the next few weeks so remember keep ’em peeled. Now to the main event.

Bassnectar

Since his release of Wildstyle EP back in October, not much new has surfaced from the depths of his wavy hair, however it nearly impossible to search the blogosphere without seeing at least one daily post about the Dubstep Lord. These two tracks show two very different sides to the madman himself; one is a smooth bass-driven womper of a track, the other a remix of ‘Kick/Push’ by Lupe Fiasco. Both are great to just crank the volume to and lie back with a big ol’ spliff in ya hand.

Bassnectar – Land of the Lupes

Me & You – Last Night (Bassnectar Remix)

Skrillex

After having Skrillex destroy my mind and some articles of clothing back at Wrongbar, I thought it would be a wise decision to go on a little ‘Skrillex-cleanse’ of my entire body, fearing I had become too dependent on his filthy basslines and terror-inducing drops. Too bad he had to go and release another addicting slayer, rendering me helpless to his music, yet again. I guess there’s just no use fighting it any longer.

Skrillex – Cat Rats

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

Flux Pavillion

One half of the creators of highly successful UK label, Circus Records, Flux Pavillion would probably be on the first ballot for induction into the Dubstep Hall of Fame. He has consistently created the meanest tracks anyone has ever heard, and has released so many face-melters that he’s created his own timbre. Now, no matter what party I end up at, if there is Dubstep being played, 9 out of 10 times he makes an appearance (or several) in the set. This one is only a preview, but I have been playing on repeat constantly in anticipation for the full release!

Flux Pavillion – Bass Cannon

Ajapai

I am very excited to introduce this DJ for the first time on the site. I really don’t know much about him, except he hails from Tokyo, Japan and creates some of the heaviest Dubstep I have heard in a while and at the same time keeps the rhythm flowing the whole time so you’re body won’t get a break from moving so hard. Signed under Rottun Recordings this Japanese virtuoso knows all the key ingredients for a delectable Dubstep destructor and you can all have a taste at some of the stuff he has produced. According to his Myspace profile, he doesn’t have any tour dates yet [sad face] but I doubt that will last for long, he really needs to come to North America and demolish some clubs, pronto!

Ajapai – Watch Out

Indubitably Dubstep Vol. III

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.
