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. 

Out now on Beatport/iTunes!

Track of the Day: "Vindicate" - Excision & Datsik

Without a doubt, you can never know what to expect from a Datsik and Excision collab besides BASS. No rookies to the filthy sound, their new song "Vindicate" combines an eerie vibe with bass-filled riffs and seering laser sounds that showcase the best these Canadian Dubsteppers have to offer. The song will be featured on Datsik's upcoming Cold Blooded EP Part 1. I am personally very excited to see where Datsik chooses to take his sound on the next EP, always taking it to the next level and letting dubstep fans alike bask in the glory of his bass. Look for the download available January 8th but in the meantime, enjoy the song below.

"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.

Free Download: "Swagga" - Excision & Datsik (Datsik's Trap VIP)

It looks like Datsik has been busy. After spending the past few months on tour with his Firepower R3cords label (which, by the way, was the loudest show I’ve ever attended), he decided to release the music he’d been working on in between shows. But instead of the usual bass-rattling, ear-shaking drumstep music that he’s famous for, this time he decided to slow it down a bit by incorporating some Trap. I was a bit skeptical at first, but when I heard his ‘Swagga’ remix, I was a doubter no more. By mixing his signature wobble-wobble sound with a slowed-down snare beat, Datsik has found the perfect balance between Trap and Drumstep (a lot like Flosstradamus’s mash-up of Trap and Hardstyle) that has eluded many people thus far. This remix is a nice, refreshing change of pace for Datsik, and it’ll be interesting to see how he incorporates this fast-rising genre into his future productions. Grab the free download!
