Free Download: "Wash Dat" - Alvin Risk

"Wash Dat" off the JunkFood EP is the next big song in Alvin Risk's repertoire. With his signature screeches and wobbles, Risk throws down an absolute monster of a track which easily wins my favorite on the EP. The high-pitched vocals blend in perfectly, setting you up for the signature OWSLA style bass attack. As Risk increases his notoriety throughout the EDM world I expect to see more tracks like this blazing through his sets as well as many others. Expect more greatness this summer from one of the scene's rising stars!

"Skyclad" (Original Mix) - Alvin Risk

Coming from Skrillex's growing OWSLA label, Alvin Risk just released a taste of what his newest album will be all about with his new single "Skyclad." Using voice-like sounds similar to Skrillex's, this song is a reminder of why crazy, hard dubstep fucking rules. Leading up to the intense drops are vocals by Risk himself, proving his musical talents far exceed his electronic background. This song is fast paced and is really fun to dance to. Give it a listen and get pumped for the release of his newest album, it's going to be ill!

"Messiah" - MONSTA (Alvin Risk Remix)

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off fans? "Anyone, anyone?" Well just know your ears have been warned. As Skrillex continues to expand his already stacked label OWSLA, its artists continue to be a force to be reckoned with. Their latest release comes from mind-boggling remix God Alvin Risk, with a remix of fellow OWSLA artist MONSTA’s "Messiah." As a subtler name on the label, Alvin definitely has had no problem creating a buzz for himself with his insanely invigorating remixes of Kaskade - "Eyes" and more recently Kill the Noise's self-titled track. This remix takes the original to new places, throwing down with the chirpy, lazer beam bass sound of Alvin that drives crowds wild on first listen. My only advice to you is to hit the play button and rage, and listen for the Ferris Bueller signature theme "oh yeah" (Yello) in the background too!

"Make It Bun' Dem" - Skrillex (Alvin Risk Remix)

Hot of the press comes a new EP full of remixes of Skrillex’s reggae infused Dubstep smash "Make it Bun Dem," released on Big Beat Records. Alvin Risk, OSWLA poster child and Skrillex’s protégé, makes the song into his own and creates a high-energy BASS banger with his own signature style.  The track begins with a pounding bassline and a dance beat that establishes the hard-hitting mood of the remix and builds with Damian Marley’s unique vocals.  The Jamaican dubstep roar of the first drop is fast paced and contains Risk’s signature high pitch chirps as seen in "Psychotic" and "Pendejas." Just as Risk always does, he adds a different second drop, one that is a slower rendition of the first and more sterotypical dubstep with its resonating bass and short synth stabs. Alvin Risk is always breaking genre boundaries experimenting in dubstep, moombahton, and electro, and despite my bias, he is definitely one of EDM’s brightest rising stars. If you’re going to Electric Zoo this weekend then definitely check him out at the main stage early Friday, I’ll see you there.

Out now on Beatport!

Review: Wonderland Remixed - Steve Aoki

Despite his jet-setting lifestyle, Steve Aoki still had the time to get organized and compile the remixes of his most recent productions into an album, Wonderland Remixed. This new Ultra Music & Dim Mak record is a collection of his recently well-known tracks such as “Steve Jobs” and “Ladi Dadi,” and a few more surprises sure to delight all you House and Dubstep fans out there. While Wonderland Remixed features collabs with numerous artists including Bassnectar, Alvin Risk, Tommy Trash, and Dillon Francis, it still maintains that signature Aoki quirkiness in every track.

"Earthquakey People" (Alvin Risk Remix) 

For those of you who are die-hard bassheads who never thought that you would hear that prime dubstep sound on an Aoki album, you have just been proven wrong. Revamped with the dark bass sound of Alvin Risk, Aoki's "Earthquakey People" is a track that's jam-packed with heavy beats. This song is raw dubstep, with some of the most interesting sound combos I’ve heard - a truly impressive and enjoyable artist collaboration. Does anybody remember Weezer? Rivers Cuomo himself headlines the vocal department of this song, which makes it an even more enjoyable tune. True to the song’s name, “Earthquakey People” is an audio earthquake, with harsh beats that rip themselves through your brain, perfect for dancing if you can move at the speed of lightning. And just when you think the track’s over, it just coming back raging harder every time. 

"Ladi Dadi" (Tommy Trash Remix)

"Ladi Dadi" has its claim to fame due to the simple presence of the beautiful Wynter Gordon. Her vocals never disappoint and any song with her is guaranteed to be a naughty one. And if you can tear your ears away from her enticing lyrics, the electronic production behind it is not too shabby either, no surprise from a Tommy Trash remix!  Consistently high synth beats elevate Gordon’s words into a partying sound, enticing listeners to celebrate!
