For many of us, it’s that time of year again, the dreaded finals weeks. To help that along we have some amazing tunes for you guys this week that are sure to motivate you. But first, some news. Dubstep OG, Benga is releasing his brand new album in two days, which coincides with the Knife Party release. That’ll be one hell of a day! For those of you who know the chip tune band ANAMANAGUCHI, they finally have another album finished, with 22 tracks, but are looking for fiscal help to take it, along with other ideas (Merchandise, Live Show stuff etc.), to the next level. If anybody is interested then head over to Kickstarter to see what their project is and what they want out of it. Lastly, to get your lolz for the weekend here are 14 pictures of Producer/Djs from back in the day! Now, on to the sonic portion of your digestion!
Shorne: Brown & Gammon‘s vintage production style is bringing us a fresh new take on dance music reminiscent of edm’s roots. “Dark Matter” is a mesmerizing original electro tune from the UK based duo and was just recently released by the renowned Circus Records. Circus continues to build upon the platform Flux Pavilion laid down as founder of the label, and have just added the filthy up and coming Mizuki to the roster. Haven’t heard much from Flux recently but word on the street has it that he is also working on a live project much like Excision‘s Destroid, which will be premiering this summer at festivals across the world!

Skream was one of the first dubstep producers that I ever got into and after hearing their unforgettable UK bass live he will always hold a special place in my music listening history. But today we’ve got his latest collaboration “Kingpin” with the creator of Shogun Audio, Friction, with a bit of a Moombahton / Moombahcore twist courtesy of Jay Fay.
The last track we posted from Jay Fay was a remix of Baby, I love You. Super crunchy and hard style influenced he takes this one in a new direction, and you can see how he has grown purely from the arrangement in his remix of Friction. I must say, it is very similar to Dillon Francis’ style of Moombahton drop but hey, most of the best producers out there learn from attempting to imitate so good for Jay Fay. Enjoy this giant bouncy moombahton remix!

If you’re at home instead of Ultra Music Festival this weekend, then enjoy this marvelous remix from the UK based producer JSM. James Steer-Matthews, aka JSM, takes Taiki & NUlight‘s “Coming Up” and turns it into a bass heavy trap track that incorporates the great style of UK dubstep. His tracks are filled with powerful bass lines and energy that’s hard to match. This remix in particular highlights his ability to merge genres and create a middle ground for the sounds he uses. “Coming Up” is a well produced trap track that has a chaotic drop. As for the chorus of the track, it’s hyped and very loud but still very smooth to the ears.
He has several 15 – 25 minute mix’s and his most recent track called ‘This Isn’t Dubstep’ aired on the last BBC Introducing show of the year. JSM is set to release an e.p in 2013, with no particular genre favored but rather a variety that he says will be an “interesting mix of sounds to the project”. This is only the beginning for a young producer like him with a lot of talent and direction.
