Superbad dupstep!

East Coast dubstep producer Humble Dinosaur takes the vocal sample of “I’m Superbad” from the scene in the movie Superbad when they’re about to cop booze with a fake ID and Mc Fogell is trying to pussy out. Then HD slaps a billowing baseline down. The beat is slowed down to a drunken pace. Then the ‘worrier charge’ is let off in the background. All the ingredients to make an unruly and ominous tune that is sure to satisfy the itch of any dubstep junky.

Pushing Daisies Thru The Dubstep, High On Mimosa

Dubstep meets dancehall, filed under reggae, from an LA artist named after a breakfast champagne drink with plenty of vitamin C. Yes! And why not? I love the vintage video game noises and 80’s clap track puppies on this porridge. “Six million ways to die, choose one,” explains our host. ‘Lectronic brain-melting dubfishies.

Bassnectar is still king

Bassnectar is a rockstar. When the intern at my office — who looks like he stepped off a Scorpions record cover — comes up to my desk asking if I like Bassnectar, you’ve reached ‘rockstar’ status. “Cozza Frenzy (Mega-Bass Remix)” is the quintessential Bassnectar sound: time-stretched vocals, massive basslines, warped horn samples, all laid on a foundation of chunky beats. You know a Bassnectar song is playing because his sound doesn’t tickle you, it engulfs you.

iLL.Gates Jams “In Di Streets (feat. Masia One and Meesha)”

Those SF Music Sluts told me they saw ill.Gates 4 times this year, and every night he played this track. This leads me to believe this one is one of ill.Gates’ favorite tracks of the year. His treatment of it is spectacularly entertaining. Up to the minute dubstep backs hip-hop dancehall freakin’. Why, this is more urban than an urb. And what is an urb? Why, it’s like an orb, only urban. Cos I said so. Cos in the streets we dub it. iLL.Gates, take it away.

Bassnectar continues killing it.

I never felt that Bassnectar’s live shows ever eclipsed his recorded material, until I heard his latest, “Wildstyle.” If you’ve never been to a Bassnectar show it usually goes down like “Wildstyle Method (Radio Edit),” the bass rolls and shudders over your body making the experience of listening (or being at his show) the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Vagabond Skills’ “Too Much Interference” Comes Through Clear

Belligerent brain butter. Vagabond Skills indeed. An observation from the grime between the slabs of civilization. Echoes of Tricky. Seething tribal tribulation with troubling tree smoking terrible terrificness. Drink some water.

The Roots of Dubstep

This week current beat king Diplo released “The Roots of Dubstep,” a mix compilation of- you guessed it – songs that have influenced current dubstep production. Get a little taste of what’s on the album with “U Don’t Like Me (Datsik Remix),” a modern bass music killer with current dubstep beat champ Dastik on the remix. I don’t know about you but this is totally the kind of music I want to hear when I’m tearing up the dancefloor.
