"Happy Violence" (Urbanstep Remix) - Dada Life

Melodic dubstep is really taking off as an offshoot of its darker, more metallic origins, with artists like Urbanstep really nailing the balance between hulky bass showers and calming melodic streams of slow glitch. Dada Life commissioned the internet to remix the tracks that carried them on a whirlwind world tour last year with this being one of the best I heard. Voting is still open so be sure to send the artist some love!

"Wasting My Young Years" (Sound Remedy Remix) - London Grammar [Track of the Day]

Some voices are born to fill electronic music with the proper emotion and reality to accompany the rolling vibes produced from the cacophony of synths, drumbeats, and hi-hats. Voices of Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, and more recently, Hannah Reid of "London Grammar" have been center stage as features spanning many genres, including House, Trance, and Dubstep. LA's Sound Remedy has taken notice to Reid's pipes and recently went to work on his remix of London Grammar's track, "Wasting My Young Years." Filled with liberating piano chords paired with guitar strums resembling those accustom to The XX, Sound Remedy took the beautiful original score and added a level of strength and ambition to the track with the subtle yet forceful break continuing into a sustained rager of a chorus. This is definitely a track to check out. I am hoping to see Sound Remedy in Chapel Hill next Tuesday to feel this song in person with all its glory. If you're in New York City like some of us you have to be sure to check him out under the vibrating sounds of Cielo's Funktion One soundsystem this Friday alongside Victor Niglio!

"Fatality" (NERD RAGE Remix) - OCTiV

Whenever I post Dubstep it's gotta be brutal, and Nerd Rage is on the assault with his latest skull-crushing horror-style bass remix for OCTiV. Tampa's own has been delving into every arena with recent Drumstep and Electro releases but today he's here to shine with what he does best: metalstep. Toxic guitar riffs accompany grotesque and tense shots of lazer bass making "Fatality" gush with blood and carnage. Grab your copy today. 

Out now on Beatport!

"Latch" (Manic Focus Remix) - Disclosure [Free Download]

In an unofficial remix for the song that mainlined soul in electronica for 2012, Manic Focus carries us away through sustained bass sections, refitting the song for a mainstage crowd. But this is no banger - instead of contaminating the pure sound of original with cheap wobbles, Manic Focus elects to inject melodic punches into the original that mount up to form one of the most powerful tracks I've heard in recent weeks. Grab the free download curteousy of MF and be sure to catch him this weekend at Summer Set Music Fest!

Seven Lions @ Webster Hall - July 26, 2013 Pre Post

Maybe it’s his shy persona, or preference of maintaining a low social profile, but I always seem to forget about Seven Lions. However, when I heard that he was going to be in town this weekend, I wanted to kick myself in the face for being so negligent. After spending a mere half hour on his Soundcloud, I was all in love again with this talented dubstep producer. Spinning a deep vertical in to the genre of dubstep, from chillstep to superstep, Seven Lions has truly mastered the ability of being a diverse artist unlike many of his genre counterparts. Another  notable attribute of Seven Lions is his beautiful use of melody in all of his tracks, creating a lyrical base for the harder beats that he layers on top. Take all of this and combine it with his use of sentimental lyrics, and Sevon Lions could just be that sensitive grunge boy we’ve all been searching for. If you’re in the NYC area on Friday, make sure you come around to Webster Hall for what promises to be an brilliant performance by Seven Lions.
