Fear Not the Dubstep XXVIII

December 8, 2011

So last night an awesome thing happened. A bunch of big names in mashups (Kap Slap, 3lau, DOSVEC, Basic Physics, etc) were invited to play sets on Turntable.fm, a website in which you can have virtual stages and the audience gives feedback on a scale from awesome to lame. The “Mashtival”, as it was called, was very fun and I found more mashups, some of which will be included in this dubstep post. Ready? Here we go.

Last night was the first night I’d heard DJ Graycat before, and I was pleased I had. This mashup really tore up the (virtual) dancefloor. Adding Waka really surprised me and I was sold from then on. Listen for your self!

Now that everyone’s seen the George Michael video, Ditta & Dumont decided to capitalize on that well known riff. It’s fun and wobbly. Enjoy!

GRiZ takes this Kanye remix in a surprising direction, making about half of it light and jazzy, saloon sound. The other half is hip hop and dubstep. It’s very enjoyable and accessible. Take a listen.

Binary really turned this track into a wobbly bass filled version of itself. But the beautiful quality of the vocals isn’t marred, and pretty piano is even added. Very cool. Check it out!

Now this leads me to a dubstep remix of “Video Games” and a question. I find that songs like this are “remixed to death”. People will say, “Not this song again!” when a week ago they were really into it. Does overplay make a song worse? I don’t think it does, I think people just go numb to the beauty they first appreciated. Stylust & Keyz Da Vamp emphasize that orchestral beauty in this remix while adding some serious bass that I think complements this song perfectly. Decide for yourself.

I haven’t posted a HULK remix in awhile which is a pity because those remixes tend to match the name in sheer magnitude. While the middle of this track may feel a little repetitive or oppressive, it will make an epic dance track. Enjoy!

So in the past I’ve complained that it’s gotten hard to find free dubstep. My solution today is to use mashups with dubstep. Acceptable? 5 & A Dime take Dillon Francis and runs with him. This track is hectic and hopping, but really well composed. Everything matches and has some excellent rage throughout. Check it out!

I’m fairly sure this is my first post of Manila Killa as well. He was DJing last night as well and this one really got a lot of enthusiasm from the crowd. Using the Bloody Beetroots really helps with amping up the energy of a song. Enjoy!
