Chillstep: A Chiller Dubstep

Chillstep is one of my favorite subgenres of electronic music, and it is exactly how it sounds: chill, mellow dubstep. I know that some of you may be thinking "Chill dubstep? That's not a thing," but I assure you that (a) it most definitely is a thing, and (b) it's quite awesome. Chillstep in and of itself has all the elements that we've come to associate with more popular forms of dubstep: the wobbles, the drum, the tempo, etc. but it also has elements of 90's trip hop and a more ambient vibe. In general, it is a lot more melodic, very relaxing, and can even be quite beautiful. Because this specific type of dubstep composition is more melodically based, there aren't a ton of artists who produce dubstep of this variation, and those that do are not very well known, though they are all extremely talented.

Here's a sampling of some Chillstep tracks I'm particularly into right now:
"Let It Be" - Blackmill
One of my favorite songs right now; it's absolutely beautifully made while still having some substantial wobble.
"Underwater" - Bassnectar
One of my favorites of all time and the track that made me search for dubstep with a more relaxed feel; this track is so ethereal and unbelievably beautiful and relaxing while still being pretty filthy. It's perfect.
"Stop and Stare" - Fenech-Soler (Gemini Remix)
This is easily one of Gemini's best tracks and is a favorite of mine. I love everything about this track, and I love that it has all the characteristic elements that Gemini puts in his music while still being very relaxed. 
"Youth" - Foxes (Adventure Club Remix)
Adventure Club has a number of excellent remixes, but this is one of my favorites. Definitely worth a listen and is very well done.
"Lofticries" - Purity Ring
I'm not entirely sure this is purely dubstep, but I love the sensual sound of the song, and I fell in love the first time I heard it.

Hot New Preview of Tiësto's Remix of "Lost In the World" - Kanye West

After first previewing this track at his show in Houston in March and then dropping it at his set at Ultra Music Festival, Tiësto releases his first preview of his mix of Kanye West's "Lost In The World" off his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Although this track is just a rip, we are really excited for the full release to come soon. Kanye's lyrics over Tiësto's progressive house sound makes for a perfect party anthem that is sure to please the entire crowd. We can't wait for Tiësto to drop this sick mix at Electric Daisy Carnival! Enjoy.

Track of the Day: "Out of the Blue" - Subfocus & Alice Gold (Xilent Remix)

This year has proven to be a breakthrough year for the UK-based DJ & producer, Xilent. His latest remix for Sub focus is no dud amongst his growing arsenal of hit tracks. "Out The Blue" pairs Sub Focus' trademark polished production with intense musicality and soulful vocals, which all combine to create an infectious and irresistible slice of D&B. Xilent takes the vocals and melodies to a new level with a brutal drop! Crank up the bass for this massive track released 4/29 on RAM Records.

Congorock - Ivory (Laidback Luke Edit)

LBL is on remix duty again this time around for Ultra signee and Italian DJ & producer, Congorock (Rocco Rampino). And this track is proof that Ultra is bringing back EDM like Timberlake brought back... well you know, years ago. The bass vibrations are so eerie (played through my 15 inch sub) and the vocal expressions give me goosebumps. Give this track a spin; it's certainly a testament that #EDM is a force to be reckoned with.

Release Date: 2012-05-08
Label: Ultra
