Free Download: Sick Dubstep Fix on a 90's Classic

Hey everyone, check out this sick Dubstep update on one of my all time favorite 90's songs! I'm sure that nearly everyone in the world has heard the original "Sex and Candy" by Marcy Playground but even classic songs can sometimes use an update, especially ones that came out 15 years ago (which makes me feel old)! Here to provide us with a little update is ChooKy with this awesome #BASS remix, which is done properly by adding enough bass to change the vibe but not so much as to lose the original sound. Because of this excellent balance, we have a nice and modern take on a classic that still has a spot on many of my go-to playlists. Have a listen, and let me know what you think! If you like what you hear, be sure to make a stop on his SoundCloud and have a listen to his sick Moombah track "Shake It Mamma" which is also definitely worth a listen.

And if you missed Laryssa Loza's review of Get Loud! Music Festival in D.C., check it out because ChooKy killed it!

Track of the Day: "We'll Be Coming Back" - Calvin Harris (KillSonik Remix)

With Example's dark and though-provoking lyrics, KillSonik gives this track exactly what it needed: heavy bass-driven dubstep that we can sink our teeth into. With screaming synths and an immense drop, Killsonik certainly delivers the filth-factor that we've been craving. Making it's debut on Skream & Benga's BBC Radio One show, "We'll Be Coming Back" is set to be released on July 29th. Bassheads: get ready for some UKF dubstep!!!

Chillstep Playlist - Chapter Two

Hey guys, so since Summer is here and I'm relaxing in St. Barth's this week, I thought I would give you all another dose of the ambient chillstep that I'm really vibing with right now. Plus, you guys seemed to like the last post I did on this, and since I have so much amazing stuff that falls into this little subcategory of EDM, I figured I could share some more chill tracks. With that being said, here's a few tracks from my own personal Chillstep playlist!

"Nothing Has Been Broken" - Bassnectar

This is another track off the most recent Bassnectar album VaVa Voom (which is a pretty solid album). I love everything that Lorin does; if you recall the songs "Underwater" which I put on my last Chillstep list which is awesome, and "Empathy," a track that is definitely getting a lot of plays on my phone right now. His sound is very unique and consistent, and he is excellent at producing these amazingly multi-layered tracks (like the above three) that just blow my mind. Check it out. And see him live. Definitely see him live.

"Moonlight Sonata" - Beethoven (Solarfist Remix)

The original piece composed by Beethoven is one of my favorite classical pieces, so upon disovering this remix/re-interpretation, I fell absolutely in love. This remix is AMAZING. It combines piano and a classical song with a nice percussive beat, and the two really work well together. This is a great song for pretty much anything, and it's so cathartically beautiful that I almost can't deal. Have a listen; this track is one of my favorites. 

"Afterglow" - Phaeleh

This song is SO CHILL that I almost can't take it. Seriously. It just makes me want to get a deep tissue massage and then melt into bed for a 4 hour nap. But actually. This track is truly great. The vocals are amazing, all of the elements of the song seamlessly blend together, and this song is just truly a wonderful song to listen to, if only for the experience. So if ever you're feeling stressed, pop on those noise canceling headphones, turn this on, jack the volume, and fucking RELAX -- this song is perfect for it. 

"Enter the Machine" - PANTyRAiD

Though this track isn't particularly new, it's one of my favorites and is definitely a very solid, though mellow, dubstep track. The basslines on this track are absolutely mad, and the percussive and thumping beat really drives the song along in a very head-noddy, chill kind of way. PANTyRAiD is an impressive electronic duo formed by Ooah of Glitch Mob (see below) and MartyParty, and together they have come out with some pretty sweet tunes. Don't believe me? Have a listen. You won't be disappointed.

"Bad Wings" - The Glitch Mob

I'm a big fan of Glitch Mob. They produce great tracks that remain consistent but still have a variety within their own type of sound. Plus, they produce albums that can easily (and enjoyably) be listened to straight through, which is certainly a talent. If you haven't heard them, then check out this track "Bad Wings". This is one of my favorite songs by them, and is undeniably chill. It maintains a very mellow mood while still being forcefully percussive, ambient, and rather glitchy (obviously). This track is from their album Drink the Sea, an incredibly sick album overall that is definitely worth a listen. Enjoy!

"Hit Me Down Sonny" - The Ting Tings (Qulinez Remix)

Qulinez is killing it this year! After releasing their breakthrough hit "Troll," which has been on heavy rotation for the past months, and our personal favorite, their remix of "A Heavy Abacus," it seems like everything these kids touch turns to gold! And "Hit Me Down Sonny" is certainly no exception. Yes, it's a remix. No, it's not another killer original that we've all been thirsting for... but who cares? After all, one of the key traits of a legit DJ is their remixing skills. If you're a fan of The Ting Ting's, or even if you don't know who they are, check this hot new #EDM cut. You'll dig for sure. Now the real question is how Qulinez only has 6,000 likes on Facebook? Guys, I think it's time for you to run with the big boys and pay for your likes
