Video: Destroid Live @ Warfield, San Francisco

After a critically-acclaimed 10 track album release The Invasion featuring collaborations with the likes of Bassnectar and Far Too Loud (album stream here), the Dubstep collective has set off on their tour of North America guns fully loaded. The trio of Excision, Downlink, and Pendulum drummer KJ Sawka have been drawing attention for months now since the announcement of their revolutionary new style of live performances reliant on wireless MIDI controllers and digital drum kits. A quick look at the video below will have you assured that this experiment's about to take the bass world by storm in a fashion more riotous than any metal show. Prepare to be Destroid this summer when these three launch you to the stratosphere!

Track of the Day: "Blast Off" - Destroid (Excision & Ajapai)

The bass mega-collab Destroid (Excision, Downlink, KJ Sawka) that has been in the works for a while is gearing up for a spectacular first EP, and today they tease us with the 9th track, "Blast Off." Excision joins forces with Japanese bass artist Ajapai to bring us "Blast Off," a bouncing track with a video-game feel and a lot of wub. Heavy, dirty, and thumping, this Track of the Day throbs from open to close and is sure to be a mainstay in Excision's latest sets. Be sure to catch their full EP when it releases early this year, and the new team on their tour - we're told Excision & Downlink will be equipped with MIDI Guitars to command the crowd from anywhere on stage, bringing the "Live Dubstep" experience to unprecedented new levels.

"Crusaders" - Destroid (Exicision, Downlink, Space Laces)

Destroid is the LIVE dubstep band consisting of producers Excision, Downlink and Space Laces. They joined together in late 2012 and released some of their first mixes together on Excision's Shambhala 2012 EP released November 1st. "Crusaders" is an example of one of the heaviest, grimiest dubstep tracks that throws this trio into a collaboration team to be reckoned with. The heavy basslines of "Crusaders" brings listeners into a new dimension of filth, live drum & bass and aggressive dubstep fusion. This is a great example of the range dubstep music takes, this song makes you want to head bang and then be taken off to space afterwards.
