Dubstep Disclaimer: I get pretty tired of the overuse of that wobbly bass that has polluted every dubstep artist’s tracks. I’m especially confused about how that sound is always considered bass because most of the time its hitting pretty hard on the mids. But regardless of all that, I can appreciate when that wobbly sound is used skillyfully like here with Willy Whompa (aka Mike Shupe)’s mixes.

This drop is awesome
British singer-songwriter Adele has been making waves with her latest release “21”, but I prefer her much more with some dubstep added and MartyParty & Minnesota (pictured above) do it right with this track. Not too crazy, not too light, and one sick ass drop (1:27 mark). Let’s hope this inspires other DJs out there to capitalize on such a great female voice to turn into some sick dubstep tracks

Here’s another look at the incredible Adventure Club dub step skills. We featured these guys a couple weeks ago when they did a remix of a James Vincent McMorrow song…and I though I was shaken by that one, but this remix just comes out of nowhere and makes your bones feel like they aren’t going to stay attached to you much longer. And they did it to Brand New of all bands. You gotta hand it to an engineer when he can make a song with no electronic aspect into a club-booming knee-knocker.
On a side note, I hadn’t heard much from Brand New in a while so I looked into it and they’re actually on tour right now, doing some dates on the East Coast which you can find on their Facebook. They have plans to release some new music in the future but are skeptical of the digital market so a full length album might not be the way they go. They have also left Interscope Records.
Anyway, on to the remix…Enjoy!

How fitting is it that our Remix Wednesday features the same artist as this week’s Monday Warming? Adventure Club is a newly formed (early 2011) dubstep duo from Montréal with plans to release a new EP soon. I never thought James V. McMorrow’s dreamy voice could fit into a dubstep remix so well.
Check out their soundcloud here.

“Shelter” by The XX is a pretty intimate song, but here Claw and Richie, the creative minds behind HULK, take it to a level of extroverted excitement. With the addition of a pounding bass throb and a hard hitting beat, the song takes on a whole new personality.

Here’s another fresh remix to get you through those last few hours of the day. Released on Monday, never thought I would hear a Band of Horses song remixed, but remixes tend to always prove me wrong. The track begins like the regular ‘Funeral’ then gradually brings in the dubstep. Not a huge drop and not bass heavy, but the melody Butch imposes is quite touching. O yea, and he’s from Detroit. They need all the love they can get right now. Check out more of his tunes here

I don’t know what it is, but this track got my attention
This track comes from a student DJ at Santa Cruz University named Minnesota. He says “I try to focus more on the melodic side of dubstep” which is apparent on this track. I’m not sure what I enjoy about this, but obviously others like it as well, ‘Sunburst’ has quickly acquired 300+ likes on Soundcloud…in a day.
See what you think for yourself, curious to hear some comments on this one.
