Well this is actually a mashup with Daft Punk. So yeah. But I like it a lot and thought I’d share with everyone. It evokes Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” while bringing Daft Punk back in new glory. It’s rather glorious. PrototypeRaptor just consistently puts out awesome music. Enjoy it!

Just had to post this real quick. Our friend Ms. Ellie Goulding has just put out a cover of The Weeknd’s High For This, and it’s all kinds of awesome. Minimalist backing, beautiful vocals… I really love this. Oh, and Xaphoon Jones produced it! Check it out.
Well it’s been over a week, I know. I had a week spent entirely in work, partying, and sleeping. It felt like way longer. At least scaw gave you all some music yesterday. But summer has officially started and now I’m going to make an effort to be a little more consistent. To start off, here’s an update on Jhameel‘s latest music series. I blogged the first track from it a bit ago and he’s come out with two more since. The most recent track is called “A Maiden Calling”. Starting with a rapid guitar (sounding) riff and a simple synth backing, Jhameel’s voice rises quietly and gently. It’s a lot more abstract than much of his work. I really like it. It fits the poetic style of lyrics that goes with this track. If you can catch the lyrics, you’ll enjoy them. Enjoy!
Last week, Jhameel dropped this track and it’s quite a bit darker than the last one. Describing a vignette of an abusive relationship, Jhameel tells this woman that at some point she’s going to realize she really wants to be out of this relationship. I like the sound a lot; it really evokes Michael Jackson. The lyrics themselves are less poetic than the last song, banking instead on the strength of the situation. Check it out!
Well, it’s been too long. I’ve been busy lately, but I’ve built up quite a collection of fun wobbley tracks to share with you guys in my absence! I know it’s not Thursday, but I think we can always enjoy some hard bass. So here goes dubstep mania!
First track up is not particularly new, but it has not been posted on here yet and I think that’s a damn shame. It’s a very enjoyable remix from our friend Zomboy. Well I’ll have you know, <hipster> I was into it before it got hot! </hipster>
Next we’ve got a remix of SKisM‘s Rave Review, which I find absolutely hilarious. The sound clips were used pretty well in the original. While this version doesn’t focus as much on the satire of making the song out of the scathing comments, it hits much harder than the original, leading to a killer drop. Also, for some reason I’m sucker for needlessly explicit drops. “God this sucks!” “Here, take these drugs.”
This is just a fun song with some really freakin’ heavy bass, a catchy synth line and some cool rhymes on top. Check it out.
I’ve been a big fan of Kill The Noise ever since I saw him open for Feed Me, and this is a pretty awesome remix of Must Be The Feeling that slows it down, chills it out, and still manages to be absolutely awesome. Make sure you turn up your subwoofer or you’re gonna miss some awesome low sounds, especially right before the drop!
One more track from Kill The Noise before we move on. This one is a bit faster, and absolutely awesome. It’s a remix of Porter Robinson’s Spitfire. Someone once said “dubstep is like an autotuned drum solo,” and I think this applies well to this song. It’s very rhythmic; it just makes you want to move. Enjoy it!
This song isn’t particularly new either, but it’s an absolute blast to listen to and it’d be a shame if anyone missed out. Caspa is not new to the dubstep scene by a long shot, but he teams up with Subscape on this tune to deliver something absolutely awesome. Don’t listen to this on some crappy Apple earbuds, you need a good subwoofer to really appreciate this one! Especially when it cuts out and the bass just… flies.
Out the Blue by Sub Focus is a really good song, and there have been many good remixes as well. Here is my favorite dubsteppy one.
This one isn’t really dubstep, but who said I can’t put some other stuff into this post too? This is probably my favorite Out the Blue remix. If you love House music, I think you’re gonna dig this.
The last few tracks on here come from a personal favorite artist of mine, Delta Heavy. DH should have been on here ages ago; they’re making some of the best DnB and Dubstep songs right now. They just came out with an EP, Down the Rabbit Hole, and I heartily recommend you check it out. I won’t be posting any of the stuff on that EP on here because it’s not up for free, but here’s some remixes they’ve done in the past.
This one’s pretty old, but it remains one of my favorites. I got really sick of Nero remixes after that Kill The Noise one burned me out, but this takes the song to a new level. I love it.
This one is more recent. Cool little remix of Rita Ora and Tinie Tempah’s R.I.P. I noticed that it uses one specific sound that’s pretty similar to the one in the Must Be The Feeling Remix, but I am pleased to report that they did not rely on that one cool sound in their EP. Check it out!
BONUS: As if this post wasn’t long enough. Since I just love pimping my favorite groups, check out this sweet music video of Get By from Delta Heavy’s new EP!
It’s Thursday! Three exams down, one paper to go, then it’s party time. But I thought I’d help out anyone looking for some bass in the meantime. So here we go.
Let’s start off with something fun, I could certainly use that. High Rankin made this song in order to vent some feelings he has. But he’s not bitter, really. The bit comparing YouTube and SoundCloud really hit home for me. I hate it when people do that. Enjoy the fun poked at annoying people and the wobs all over the place.
Next up, Stephen Walking delivers some intense wobbage and filth. This track is off of the latest Monstercat compilation. I enjoy how the tune moves in and out of tropical instruments and electronic synths. Check it out.
And now for some nostalgia. Hugs&Drugs turn the Killers’ classic into an excellent drumstep track. The beat breaks down into bass for the chorus. It’s great. Give it a listen for yourself.
We’re going to take a step back with this track and relax the mood a bit. Dylan Sanders & Brad Lee have a very chilled out track to share. The flute and breakbeat just makes you want to dance and the vocals are just as catchy. The dubstep interludes just seem to make sense. Check it out!
I posted Logic the other day so when I saw this remix I was in a very receptive mood. Turns out that really wouldn’t have mattered. The Feature Cuts remix is so good that I would have blogged it no matter what mood I was in. The beat is driving and bass filled which lends urgency to Logic’s already intense verses. Enjoy it!
Quick post today in between exams! Big Gigantic remixed Adventure Club. Not much could be better or more epic. Imagine crazy rage from Adventure Club added to catchy drum beats and saxophone from Big Gigantic. This track is just plain enjoyable. So enjoy it!
I never thought that I would make this comparison, but Jhameel‘s latest track has me thinking a little of Sleigh Bells. It’s because the opening synths are that unbridled and slightly fuzzy explosion of sound that Sleigh Bells favors. Jhameels vocals dominate his beat, though, and his amazing voice becomes the focus. He’s pushing his voice on this one; you can hear the emotion and expressiveness pouring out of it at those moments when his voice almost breaks and he gasps for breath. Not only is his voice entrancing, but his lyrics are deep and ask some hard questions about living up to your own expectations. As always, this makes me hungry for more and more Jhameel. Thankfully, this song is the beginning of a new music series from him, so I’ll be on the lookout next week and so should you. Enjoy!
